Vraska's Contempt Discussion
20 minutes ago
1 hour ago
Hi tjjonny2000, thanks again for commenting! I've decided to replace Vraska's Contempt with two more copies of Vicious Offering in the mainboard, and I moved one copy of Vraska's Contempt to the sideboard. I think that exiling a giant creature or planeswalker at instant speed might still come in handy in some matchups. I also feel like I should at least be running one copy of the card, since it's so powerful. Do you have any more suggestions? :)

Hi tjjonny2000, thanks for commenting! I'm considering running more copies of Vicious Offering, however, I'm not sure if Vraska's Contempt should be replaced. Virtually, it's the deck's only way to deal with planeswalkers and big legendary creatures. Would you mind telling me your perspective on this? :)

sadboys2002 I feel like a 4th Clifftop Retreat would be extremely helpful, but I have an issue with going up to a playset of the Vantage, and that being that there's a chance mid-game that it's a dead draw to me, being a tapped land. Also, I want to stay as low on the land count as possible, especially since this is an aggro deck. The highest CMC card in the mainboard is 3, and 23 lands seems like a massive amount. I haven't had very many issues with the landbase in the past, and it seems to be in a nice spot right now. Thank you for the feedback!
firefox1413 If you play this against control, just concede. I haven't found a good balance in the sideboard yet for the control matchup, and we DIE to spot removal. Vraska's Contempt is too popular right now in the meta, but if your venue is low on control, this deck can come out of nowhere fast. Against other budget=heavy decks, this one does substantially better as far as I can see. My favorite thing about this deck is how stupid it can get so early, whether it be from the massive armies Valduk can create, or the stupid big Champions we can get. Overall, it's a ton of fun to play!

I'm not too big on standard, but I can already tell you want to be playing vehicles, Aethersphere Harvester and maybe Heart of Kiran seems like a good fit here. They have synergy with Night Market Lookout and are evasive threats.
Conditional discard should be in the sideboard. You want to be mainboarding removal, it's what your color does best.
Vraska's Contempt would be good eventually

Jimmy_Chinchila I agree on both counts; Dispossess barely was not included in the board because of it only targeting an artifact. Divest hits both artifacts and creatures, and whatever that does not hit, Lost Legacy removes.
Acute19 I went back and forth on whether to mainboard Torment of Hailfire and ultimately decided that Mastermind's Acquisition is a more flexible option. If I look at the early game, and need a card I'm missing it can fetch anything I want. If I am in the early game and draw a Torment of Hailfire its gonna sit there and do nothing until I have mana adequate to use it. When I do use it, it should be as a finishing move. Is it slower than just main-decking it? Yes. I'm viewing it as less flexible though in times of dire need. I can reach for a Vraska's Contempt or Karn, Scion of Urza to break a deadlock with Mastermind's Acquisition or any other spell / creature I need to even the playing field.
