benw mirko vosk is a 2/4. He doesnt have hexproof, indes, or shroud. Dreadbore, Terminate, Go for the Throat, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Decimate, Wing Snare, Pongify, all of these kill him. Most before he could deal damage. the only evasion he has is flying, in which green snipes him down all day too.

Most cedh decks run at least 31 lands. 31/4 is roughly 8. Thats 5-8 times you need to hit a SINGLE player to mill them out. And many players run some sort of graveyard shuffle, like blue with Timetwister. And this is multiplayer cEDH. Which means you have 2 other opponents besides the one you just hit. And getting in even 5 hits with him? well hes a 5 drop. Say you get him out turn 3. By then, zur and teferi have usually set up most of the lock if not all. then youre talking another 5 turns to kill 1 person off milling. Thats turn 8, and by then someone else probably won. Even if you want to add in all those other fun things like Glimpse the Unthinkable and Archive Trap, they wont bring you much further. Maybe speed up everything by 2-3 turns for 1 player. But mirko still wont be able to win quickly without Helm of Obedience and Leyline of the Void. By the time you get them out if you had to hardcast leyline? turn 3 activation, which someone can stop pretty simply too. Its hard to explain all the fine details but this is the best i can do on lack of sleep lol

I'd recommend Plummet over Wing Snare for a faster and cheaper kill for flyers. At the same cost as Wing Snare (but at faster speed), Pistus Strike kills a flyer and gives the opponent a poison counter, which is useful in some decks but less so here.
