Vraska's Contempt Discussion

Glowspore Shaman seems an auto include. Deathsprout ramps but it wont be able to deal with things like planeswalkers and is a bit expensive. I would rather go for Cast Down and/or Vraska's Contempt or if you want to play something even better, that only your deck can run, go for Necrotic Wound its a 1 mana exile any key creature, especially in your deck. Lotleth Giant is cool dont get me wrong but its gonna do 7-10 damage most of the times , so you will need some more aggression in order to get the enemy into lethal range.

i love playing self-mill , check out my deck https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/sultai-agrocombo-selfmill/

The only issue I have with pumping Thief is it usually gets killed as soon as it hits the board and with no spells to protect it ( Dive Down , ect.) it dies immediately. Kaya's Ghostform could help with that but it has to survive long enough to get it on.
I wish I had some Dead Man's Chest because I would use that. It will be rotating out soon so I am trying to plan ahead a little too. That's why I pulled my Vraska's Contempt and Psychic Corrosion and Hostage Taker out and looking for a good replacement for Walk the Plank other than Murder .

Thanks MattyPatty! I realize I had 64 cards in the main, so I was going to have to tweek the list anyway. I added the Knights and the side now has Vraska's Contempt and this feels close to playable.

If your trying to to do an Orzhov Aggro kind of deck, then I would probably run Knight of Grace / Knight of Malice . Helps with being more aggressive. Cut the Reavers and your Spark Harvests for 2x Knight of Grace and 2x Knight of Malice. Run Vraska's Contempt in the Sideboard instead of Ritual of soot. While it is a boardwipe, it does kill about 90% of all your creatures (everything except Spawn of Mayhem ), if your building off of a Mono-White build that might not be a great idea.

Hope this Helps!

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Yo Ruggs, here are a suggested cards to remove from you deck open up space.

Graveyard Fetching/Recursion - Competes for cards slots that support the tribal control theme. Besides Craterhoof Behemoth , I dont see any creature worth two cards for throwing it into your graveyard and then recurring it onto the battlefield. Animate Dead is good because you can target you opponent's graveyards - perfect for your discard theme.

Other swap options include:

Thats what I got for now.

I would cut Radical Idea For Enter the God-Eternals , more mill + removal + lifegain + 4/4. Cut one Chemister's Insight to add another Drowned Secrets , Then use Vraska's Contempt in the sideboard instead of Murder if budget is not a problem. Definitely add more lands, 21 is way too low, 23 at least.

Good point with Slaughter . I somehow missed the synergy...

Regarding Vraska's Contempt , it is always fun to throw it against an Avacyn, Angel of Hope .
