Hey, Cinestra!

I was wondering if there is any particular reason you run Damnation over Languish or Yahenni's Expertise ? Thanks in advance and happy holidays.

Seems like Mission Briefing could actually be useful in this deck, maybe as 2x instead of a Negate and something else? Also, just because you have three colors, you may need to add an additional land. Maybe not on the land, but it just feels like it might need one more?

In the sideboard, maybe Doom Blade instead of Yahenni's Expertise ?

Just a couple of quick thoughts.

Did you have a look at the currently testing section? Tracker is actually in it already.

I just really dont know about the DRS cut, considering DRS is what it is in the later game. I can test, but you were right in saying I dont like it, lol.

The inspector is interesting for sure. I'll do some testing with it. Now that Field is banned, Witch's Vengeance is an easy cut for Yahenni's Expertise , aside from the occasional elf or knight deck. But those are few and far between so I'll make that cut.

Any other ideas?

I don't see much change in this list.

You won't like it but I would still recommend getting rid of one Deathrite Shaman and putting one Sandsteppe Citadel in its place.

You just don't want that Creature early in the game.

Have you considered Yahenni's Expertise instead of Witch's Vengeance ?

I can see why you have it - to protect your Creatures while getting at least some board wipe of the other field of something like Zombies, but it does have its limitations.

I just noticed that you have no card draw. We've been using Tireless Tracker in StuBi's deck to excellent effect. You really need some for games that go long.

Questing Beast or Scavenging Ooze could be removed for it, depending on which one you find less useful.

If it were me I'd take them all out, but it's dependent on taste and play style.

Hope that helps.

ok .Lets see.

at first I would change Vraska the Unseen with Vraska, Golgari Queen , she cost less Mana and you can use the other abilits not just the last.

you need thins that made your creatures Unblockable f.e. Whispersilk Cloak or Lure . If you got a lot of creatures or +1/+1 counters you could play Champion of Lambholt .

Archfiend of Despair is extrem expenssiv but fits perfectly to the topic.

you could cut:

I've only just noticed that there is a nice combi between Filth + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Crypt Ghast is to slow. With CMC 4 its besides Gray Merchant your topcurve... Desecration Demon is fun, but if its your only creature and opponents has a lot, its nothing. I would reduce it to 2 copies. Stamina is ok, but Remvoval is more important than combat trick, even if you dont have a creature to target. 3 copies of Read the Bones is enough.

Dread Shade gives you and could be easily pumped up with Shrine and Cabal Stronghold. I prefere it over Ayara.

For Sideboard: Leyline of the Void , Pithing Needle , Duress and Yahenni's Expertise .

mmcgeach due to this list's usage of Solitary Confinement , City of Brass often just a better Mana Confluence .

I have also found that Winds of Abandon is a better sweeper in testing than Supreme Verdict .

I also tested abusing more black cards ( Slaughter Pact , Dismember , Yahenni's Expertise , etc.) to use Force of Despair , but it was a mediocre card even with that. I did learn that new Ashiok is pretty good against combo, and Mnemonic Betrayal is really bad against Gitrog, but isn't that bad of a card.
