Vraska, Relic Seeker Discussion

1 month ago, with the firsts spoilers, I have a similar idea (TRY JUND!) and I have a few suggestions: Frenzied Arynx is very slow, and you may cut it to add some Legion Warboss , Rekindling Phoenix ; I think that you may cut 1 Pestilent Spirit because you only have 6 instants-sorcey spells to use his ability, and 1 Rhythm of the Wild to add 2 copies of some planeswalkers like Vraska, Relic Seeker , Vraska, Golgari Queen or Domri, Chaos Bringer .
Apart from this, the idea of add 4 copies of Spawn of Mayhem is good and funny, but the ability of lose life can be dangerous to you aganist aggro or burn decks (which I think is a playable archetype).
One question: You nt have any sideboard??

vomitpile: I added Ritual of Soot , Vraska, Relic Seeker and Assassin's Trophy . I also threw in a couple Treasure Map Flips for the scry and to increase the mana count for Hydroid Krasis and Pteramander . Let me know what you think

Thanks for the suggestions. I am looking to get Doubling Season eventually - Parallel Lives and Primal Vigor are decent imitations for now. I hadn't considered Vraska, Golgari Queen. I have that one and Vraska, Relic Seeker, which would go well thematically. The others look like good additions too, but I'll need to hunt them down.
Say I do get those cards - which should get removed? New to Commander, especially constructing decks, so I'm not sure what should go. Would I sub Grave Pact for Dictate of Erebos since they do basically the same thing, only a little cheaper? Or remove something else so that I can double dip that effect? In Garruk's Wake for Gaze of Granite or something else to have 2 board wipe type spells?

Interesting suggestion... The deck is already light on green but after looking it over they all seem to play a pivotal role. Vraska, Relic Seeker removal, token generator and an alternate win condition. Parallel Lives token doubler. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest value off sacrificing tokens. Second Harvest token doubler. I plan on rebuilding this deck and adding Doubling Season for planeswalker/token doubling and Eternal Witness for much needed recursion.
Thanks for commenting. Send me a link to your Breya version once its built.

Hey, I'm actually playing a pretty similar deck in MTGA right now (or at least I think so ^^). The main difference in my deck is that I go heavy on the Muldrotha, the Gravetide game plan with a lot of permanents to cast from my graveyard once Muldrotha is on the field.
Some exaples which you don't have in your list are: Show
Evolving Wilds: Thinning your deck from basics every turn seems nice... (well I'm also playing much more basics than you)
Burglar Rat: Hand destruction, replayable from graveyard
Dusk Legion Zealot: Card draw, replayable from graveyard
Connive / Concoct: this card is great, it let's you steal your enemies small stuff and also enables you to pull important creatures from your graveyard (Ravenous Chupacabra; Doom Whisperer; Carnage Tyrant, Muldrotha, the Gravetide). Also from my experience most players seem to not "know" this card or don't expect it
Whisper Agent: another mostly unexpected card, goes well with the "get good stuff into the graveyard for later" plan and triggers Disinformation Campaign, I mostly use it as a 3cmc "deal 3 damage to target attacking creature" spell
As mine is a Bo1 List and there are no permanents working as boards-wipes I usually struggle with decks going wide with creatures. Also from my experience Hostage Taker underperforms a bit compared to Ravenous Chupacabra as for me it mostly comes "online" after the 6+cmc mark so you can actually play the stolen creature/artifact the same turn to avoid removal.

Ty for your Feedback Ouroboros_47, appreciate it. The Reason why I run is Carnage Tyrant, he is one of the best options against control, being uncounterable and hexproof. He is also out of reach of all the mass removals, except Cleansing Nova and Phyrexian Scriptures. And of course a The Eldest Reborn hits him too,... But in this Deck you don’t usually cast him on T6 with no open mana, and there are a few counterspells in the Deck, to protect him. Vraska, Relic Seeker is a nice removal/wincon too, so the greensplash makes sense. Whisperer and Dreameater are good cards for sure, but not resilient enough against control/Midrange builds. Lava coil is great, but sorcery speed, and i really don’t want to add red, would force me to play niv mizzet explosion, ionize, drakes and stuff, I want to build something off the popular lists,... finally Bolas,... yes he is a body with fine ETB ability, his planeswalker side is great, but resilience is the problem with him too, since my 4 Teferis are a must Bolas would force me to play 5 Colors,... It may well be, that I go for other colors, will keep your suggestions in mind!
