Vraska the Unseen Discussion

Recently this Podcast did this episode on their personal spellbooks. I thought it would be cool if we did the same thing. I'm going to base mine just off cards that mean a lot to me or have been my favorites.
Karn, Silver Golem - my first commander, I still have the deck. I should probably get that up on this website...
Killing Wave - I love giving people bad choices to make and everyone underestimates these cards. Trust me after the 5th bad choice you have to make you'll be feeling the pain.
Queen Marchesa - I had built a few half hearted pillow fort decks before finding her but she leads my first real pillowfort deck. A strategy that I rather enjoy.
Mairsil, the Pretender - Leads my absolutely favorite deck. I've always loved doing weird combos and Mairsil combines cards in ways they are not meant to be. This leads to having the highest potential number of combos in a single deck.
Shadowborn Apostle - I still haven't really settled on who I want as the commander of my Apostle deck but I always have fun charging in with these guys and then bringing out ridiculous demons later in the game.
Vraska the Unseen - I just really like this character... She needs a version that can be my commander!
Quillspike and Devoted Druid - Cheating here a bit since I'm counting this as one 'signature spell' but this is the first combo I remember discovering myself. In reality I was far from the first person to see it but I didn't know that.
Stuffy Doll - I need this to be a legendary creature... It is just such an awesome card and so funny to me!

Pikobyte , I'm sorry, i completely forgot to answer to you, here my version of your Muldrotha Muldrotha, the „Fun“ in the VERY CHEAP „Funeral“, it is almost the same of your cheaper version, but I tried to save more money (I'm a student and I don't work, so not much money to spend in magic), plus a few changes to shape the deck to my game style; I took off Vraska the Unseen for Vraska, Relic Seeker because you're complete right about it, but i left the other two cards ( Underrealm Lich and Elixir of Immortality ) because they make me feel safer.

Hi Pikobyte, really great deck, when I play it I feel to have an answer for everything
I made some changes, (firstly for budget), but I think these 3 could be interest:
I put Underrealm Lich for River Kelpie , he feeds the graveyard, adjust the draws, and I can't lose for mill, and this happens a few time ( Hedron Crab + World Shaper can be lethal and I want mill ever my library), yes river kelpie is better for draws, but they are 3 effects againist 1

Hello, i'm sorry for the delay in responding here. Anyways here are the changes I would make:
Cut 3x Forests and 5x Swamps for these: Command Tower , Golgari Rot Farm , Woodland Cemetery , Tainted Wood , Overgrown Tomb , Hissing Quagmire , Temple of Malady , Blooming Marsh , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Guildgate , Blighted Woodland , Temple of the False God , Llanowar Wastes , Bojuka Bog . (I gave you more than 10 choices here so you have options at varying prices, choose whichever 10 or even more that you would be willing to include here, keep in mind also that I have ordered them based on my most recommended to least, but all are fine choices here).
I have to get going for now, but I hope that you will find all of this useful, and let me know what you think of these changes!

Also adding blue would give access to things like Deepglow Skate , Skeleton Ship , Vedalken Anatomist , Fuel for the Cause , Corrupted Conscience , Viral Drake , Thrummingbird , and most importantly, Inexorable Tide . Add Thassa, God of the Sea to make your creatures unblockable, while giving a scry each turn, and it seems like it should be an easy.
So overall, I think the deck would be better dropping either dropping green completely and replacing it with blue, or dropping cards like Vraska the Unseen , Golgari Charm , Putrefy , and Scuzzback Scrapper and replacing them with the blue cards mentioned above.

cdkime I totally agree that the chain veil and doubling season would be great additions. Unfortunately, Doubling Season is too out of budget for me for a single card. If it dropped like 10 i'd definitely consider it more.
Arena Rector I considered in my last singles buy, except that the dying trigger keeps me a little cautious, and since she's not an ally there's no real good way to tutor her out of the deck.
My biggest problem with running the boardwipes is that this deck is a superfriends/ally merge. So while you are playing superfriends, you also are playing allies. And there are times when your board is ten allies, in which pulling a boardwipe isn't as much of help.
In regards to Mu Yanling she's part of a win con, which is primarily why I keep her around. Teamed up with Vraska the Unseen 's ult, she ends it. Venser, the Sojourner does the same thing, but Venser is a much more threatening planeswalker whereas more people will just ignore Yanling.
Ral, Caller of Storms I'm more on the fence about. His card draw is nice mid game, when with some of the other planeswalkers you can be putting like 4 cards into your hand a turn. But I agree he's still a little lackluster, so I might remove him.
Thanks for the advice! I'm definitely going to look back into the planeswalker loyalty boost and maybe some more ramp and look over Ral and some of the other mediocre planeswalkers in the deck

If you go further down the elf-ramp path, you can start playing more synergistic cards like Masked Admirers, which you can sacrifice to Vraska the Unseen's ability and get back later. Deathtouch creatures in general work well with the other Vraskas, blocking very well and needing to be blocked when you get close to ultimate territory.
If you're trying to ultimate as quickly as possible, Doubling Season is expensive (but also probably the cheapest it's been in years right now) but irreplaceable. With that on the battlefield, if you resolve any planeswalker it comes in with twice the counters, often letting you ultimate immediately. The proliferate route, while keeping your Vraska's protected, is next-best. Clasp is a great card, and Plaguemaw Beast could be a synergistic consideration.
The best way to protect a planeswalker once it's on the battlefield is by removing your opponent's threats, and this deck could use some pieces of removal broader than Naturalize. Putrefy or Status / Statue is a terrific budget alternative to something like Assassin's Trophy or Maelstrom Pulse, while Cast Down is a cheap way to take down most creatures. Ravenous Chupacabra kills a creature while leaving a body on the board to attack, block, or get sacrificed to be brought back with Golgari Findbroker and such. Find / Finality does double duty of recurring your creatures when your planeswalkers aren't being threatened, and wiping the board when you're behind.
As for keeping your planeswalkers in steady supply if you're pinched due to literal supply, Nature's Spiral is a good addition. Yawgmoth's Vile Offering is another very powerful alternative, but you would likely need to run many more legendary creatures in order to consistently cast it. Some options: Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Isareth the Awakener, Marwyn, the Nurturer (who is also terrific ramp if you go the Elf route), Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, Rishkar, Peema Renegade (who also is great with your proliferate effects), or my personal favorite Gonti, Lord of Luxury.

thats an interesting idea. since i'm building a golgari deck, I might consider it. Or splashing red, though I might end up with a similar problem to when I had blue. The only reason I prefered the green is because of Destined / Lead and Vraska the Unseen, which creates another win condition and helps keep the field clear if I use a creature with death touch, or better still target agent of the fates with both halves of it and attack.
