Vraska, Relic Seeker Discussion

Hey again FunBun,
Pretty good question, a lot of ppl think that Vraska the Unseen is better because she is cheaper to cast and can destroy planeswalkers too. But I think that Vraska, Relic Seeker is clearly better. The reason is simple: The unseen comes with 5 loyalty, means you can destroy something and have to use the +1 to be able to destroy something again the following turn. So it’s a 3 Turn cycle to destroy 2 things. Vraska, Relic Seeker is a beast for board control. She comes with 6 loyalty and can -3 two turns in a row. This means turn 1 she destroys something and gives you a treasure. From now on she can destroy 2 things EVERY turn. Destroy something, she dies, recast her, destroy again, repeat next turn. In addition she generates a treasure every time which you can use to recast her. All together means she reads somewhat like: „pay 4 colorless: destroy 2 target artifact, enchantments and/or creatures“ That’s pretty powerful if you can do that every single turn, and exactly what a control deck wants to do.
For Liliana the things are more simple. Her + ability mills you some cards which you can cast from your grave. Her - allows you to bring creatures back to the battlefield. This allows you to play creatures with cmc 6-8 cheaper from your grave while also leaving your 1 creature cast per turn open to cast another creature. This way you can bring back multiple creatures per turn and recover quickly from boardwipes or combatstep.
Hope this helps you

Another really evocative deck! Mirage Mirror could be a fun add if you wanted to give Perseus and his shield a shout-out in the deck.
The gemstones/jewelry ramp was a really creative touch that I really liked. Really makes the flavor come through. Have you considered the new treasure token cards? Cards Vraska, Relic Seeker , Spell Swindle , Revel in Riches , Prosperous Pirates , and Depths of Desire could add a fun secondary win condition in Revel in Riches and would help the mana out a lot too! The pirate theme in the treasure cards isn't necessarily on flavor, for sure, but they could represent the maritime aspect of ancient Greece?

I understand that copy mana rocks for ramp can be good but coping untill the end of turn seems a bit under-powered.
Sorry I was unclear I do not think sliver queen in Bad I just think Najeela is a better independent token creator for this deck.
(side note loving aminatou's nickname) and i suppose she is just 3 planes walker resets so not ultimate value!
The planeswalker does not need to survive to get an emblem and an emblem does not go away when the planeswalker dies. when you get an emblem the only way to get rid of it is if someone plays a card that literally says "restart the game". So with doubling season out you play Rowan Kenrith she comes in with 8 counters you ult her for her emblem she dies (but you don't care because you got her emblem!!!
Ashiok, Dream Render i keep on flip floping at the moment i love this guy. (Got trashed in a draft by it and ghost form!)
Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast I like the removal aspect of this over saheeli and the alt i think is better (permanent copies)
Ugin, the Ineffable is great similar to Vraska, Relic Seeker IMHO it has a better up but no ult. Bothe value and removal so both great (I do love that Vraska :) )
Yeah hopefully it cant prompt some ideas :). Good luck with the music creation!

Hmph. Very well. The "Not Gruul-Colored God" is dead. Also decided to cut Freyalise again. Now, here's what I've been thinking all this time. If we're referring to the last (Or the first of three last cuts.); I've ben thinking long & hard as crap, & here are the Walkers that I put on Garruk's Chopped by a giant Axe Cut:
Ral Zarek : This one's tough. After cutting Nahiri, the Harbinger (Even her 2nd Loyalty Ability is way better than Vraska, Relic Seeker in which her targets are exiled. Though Mana Ramp from Vraska kept her here in her stead.), having a way to tap & untap all in one ability, but having a Lightning Bolt esque ability is to underwhelming; especially against Her as she stops all non-combat Damage; now how can Mono- Burn decks have any use w/ her around at all? Then there is his ultimate; the only way he can assure you one Extra Turn at least. But you can't call the flip; instead, you'd have to pray your ass it lands on heads at least once. Chaos, & Superfriends are not good here at all. Why WotC didn't make a Mono- Legendary Planeswalker yet that can assess all problems w/ the truly random chances Chaos Decks have (Especialy if it's Mono-; the color w/ the most amount of CHAOS based Cards.)?
Thus why Ral #1 starts off the list of cuts.
… & is also the last. Aminatou, the Fateshifter was initially a big part of the deck, but after a child got chopped, so too did Felidar Guardian . So many good cards got chopped, & they actually had use; not sarcastic. That said, as some of the other Walkers' effects require tapping them either by Ral Zarek , or even Tamiyo, the Moon Sage , hell would occur when such things that require them to be tapped to strike at them; & such cards are no longer in the deck list, Meaningless Burn, & a Chaos Effect that's much riskier than even Mana Crypt , these three reasons (Backed up by the fact one reason each represents a Loyalty Ability.) is why I'd cut Ral, the Self-Electrodominated Baka Yarou that can't burn anyone anymore . I've yet to go any further to find two more cuts. But I'd like your opinion on this, PhotogenicParasympathetic. I don't think I can make beyond 30, so... Any thoughts?
