Tweaked a bit. Advice still welcome. Not sure about the split of O-Ring and Vindicate MB/SB, Liliana and Edict answer giant protected fatties like Emrakul but not as quickly as Show-ing an O-ring.
Top Notch Deadguy. Great Deck. Play tested against my USA Delver AK +1 All the Way.

I'm not sure how good it would be, but Bitterblossom is very powerful and provides a nice place to put a jitte.

A bit durdly. I was thinking about them for a while but it doesn't seem like they'd work that well. Mirran Crusader is far better.

I would at least run 2x Vindicate in here MB. Other versions (including my own) run 4, but I can see why you would want to split with O-ring. On the other hand, vindicate likes to eat lands.
Also, Bitterblossom is a sweet card to have in here as a 2 of at least. Only a few things can take it out, and because of that your opponent has to race to kill off your tokens before getting swallowed up by them. I don't have any, but I occasionally borrow them from the shop when they let me. The deck is solid with or without them.
+1 from me. Great deck.

I am in agreement with gnarlicide about the Vindicate
. 2x would be great at limiting the opponents board. I'd drop an Inquisition of Kozilek
, with the 3 remaining, 4x Thoughtsieze, and liliana, you wouldn't even notice its gone.

As to Bitterblossom
I would not change the main board to fit it in. This deck wins, and all to often we tinker with deck ideas that are proven to work. Bitterblossom
however is one of those rare cards in magic that are awesome all by themselves, Huntmaster of the Fells
is a good example. Would you consider running a 62 card mainboard?

I wouldn't really be happy with a 62 card MB. Bitterblossom is nice, but it's best use is as a swordbearer and I chose Mirran Crusader for that purpose. As much advantage as it gives, it's super slow.

As for vindicate I have 2 already, one main one side, I just have a split with o-ring for a bit more protection against SNT.
