Vraska's Contempt Discussion
1 hour ago
Night Market Lookout should be a 4 of, so should Scrapheap Scrounger and Weldfast Engineer Inventor's Apprentice. Cut it back to 22 lands, aggressive decks can run a little less. Bump it up to 4 Unlicensed Disintegration and Built to Smash. Get 4 Fleetwheel Cruiser and run them in place of the other vehicles you have 2 of each of. Then replace the last 2 artifacts with Skysovereign, Consul Flagship. Pia Nalaar would be good in here too. Also add one more solid piece of removal, Never / Return and Hour of Glory are a little more budget friendly than Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt, Lightning Strike and Abrade are really good too. Trim it down to 60 cards using 4 of each of the cards I mentioned other than the sky sovereigns and the deck will be pretty consistent. Sideboard should be like 3 each of Sentinel Totem Duress Lay Bare the Heart By Force and Shock. This deck should be super fast this way, and it will help that you curve is lower, the only other upgrade would be to replace Untethered Express with Aethersphere Harvester or Heart of Kiran. Hope it works well for you.

Great Deck, looks like a lot of fun! You should move the Deadeye Tracker to the mainboard though. It's such a strong card! Lurking Chupacabra doesn't really hit any threats that you want it to at four mana, so a Vraska's Contempt would work much better. Nissa, Vital Force seems like a good finisher as well as a good card in your deck.

Some good single card removal removal spells you could add are Vraska's Contempt,Cast Out,Ixalan's Binding. they all cost 4 mana but are worth it. All stop almost everything in the format. Each have their benefits. Vraska's Contempt exiles it for sure, and gives you 2 life which could potentially save you from death.Cast Out can be cycled if you don't need it. Last but not least Ixalan's Binding Can potentially take any non-land permanent off the field for good. You even have mass removal options if you want them. Settle the Wreckage might as well be a death blow to other aggro decks . Vona's Hunger depends on if you can get the cities blessing, but if you can it's probably game winning on the spot for an aggro deck.

Now that the bans have opened a little more room in standard, what would be the best way to build a deck with 3-4 Yahenni, Undying Partisan and 3-4 The Scarab God, so that I could use Yahenni to protect Scarab from things like Vraska's Contempt and use Scarab to provide endless fuel for Yahenni to gain indestructible.

OneItsStarted (and DemonDragonJ): I disagree, I feel the repeatability of the first ability outweighs the negative effects vs. Skull Rend. Yes giving the choice to the player running a graveyard deck is a significant downside, but most EDH decks these days should be packing some form of graveyard hate. One-off discard effects in commander are pretty ineffective (outside of wheel effects) in my experience. Repeatable discard effects however are quite backbreaking. Plus his other abilities are relevant. To me his floor (5 mana drain two and discard a card before he immediately dies) is near enough to the power level of Skull Rend, but his ceiling is much much higher.
I went to a second pre-release yesterday and played Grixis good-stuff to a 3-1 record. My deck won off of the back of Tetzimoc, Primal Death, Charging Tuskodon, 3 Spire Winders, and a Rampaging Ferocidon (who single handedly held down a B/W vamp deck in one game). Forerunner of the Empire was clutch in finding my Tetzimoc just about every game. I only lost to extremely aggressive dino deck that pretty much ran only 4/4's. I likely would have gotten their had I gone a more conservative route in game 1, but my greedy play burned me.
In game 2 of my last match of the day I was facing down Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Legion Lieutenant, Twilight Prophet, and a Dusk Legion Zealot against my one Ascended Spire Winder. I threw my Spire Winder in front of his attacking Twilight Prophet and then Fiery Cannonaded away his board. Next turn he dropped a Vona, Butcher of Magan which was promptly met with Vraska's Contempt and Rampaging Ferocidon. He just conceded the match right there.

oh, also off topic, you got 5 copies of Vraska's Contempt between your main board and sideboard. the card is cool yeah, but that's illegal and expensive lol
