This deck was designed around the new plainswalker Vraska the Unseen to make use of her -7 as a win condition. The concept is to fill the field with Deathtouch creatures and to use them to clear out your opponents creatures. Use removal cards like Abrupt Decay and Putrefy to control the field as well as Thoughtseize to deal with any threats in the opponent's hand, leaving the field open for the 1/1 assassins to finish the job.
Any tips or suggestions is greatly appreciated!
The Bow of Nylea is amazing, even without its deathtouch component. Ultimately it did not make the cut as of now (which could change) because I am wanting to use the deathtouch creatures defensively, essentially as a deterrence to keep opponents from attacking while I am building up to a Vraska the Unseen or Hythonia the Cruel win. Since the bow only makes them deathtouch while attacking, an opponent with bigger creatures could simply not block, then stomp me on his turn. But, as I said, the bow is amazing and I am definitely still keeping it in mind while play testing.
I love this deck idea. It really helped in the building of my Vraska deck. Maybe add some Dash Hopes replacing a couple Thoughtseize because I find my Vraska has been Dreadbore or Hero's Downfall a lot. Also instead of having 4 Overgrown Tomb I run with 2 of them and 2 Golgari Rot Farm . I find it easier to get Vraska out early game with that. Thanks!
Hi, this is a very cool deck, I've a fun combo you can include which can help Vraska's tokens to pass by killing all the opponent's board, Golgari Decoy + Gaze of the Gorgon . I tested it in a deck and, it's an horror for the mass tokens deck like Selesnia or humans. Have a good play.
I like Golgari Decoy
for this deck, even without Gaze of the Gorgon
(half of Armed / Dangerous
) also performs the same function in a creatureless package: If you force your opponent to block one of the Assassin tokens with all their creatures, the other 2 can get by unfettered (barring a monstrous Hundred-Handed One
, but that's what Putrefy
or Hero's Downfall
are for). Mogis's Marauder
can be devastating as well, giving your Assassin(s) intimidate and haste. Prowler's Helm
can also be used to make them unblockable (except by Walls, but who plays those anyway?). I really like the idea of giving them haste, so Mogis's Marauder
and/or Fleetfeather Sandals
seem like the best bets to me.
