I'll just play Wasteland and destroy the stuff you can't tax. Seems like a fitting metaphor.

The Chalice though. I already have 8 1 drops.
Thanks for the suggestions though, helped get my mind flowing.

If the CMC average of the deck is 3.03 and that's not counting the 24 lands in a 60 card deck that would mean I'm taking maybe 1 or 2 damage a turn average from a Bob, and that's only when I don't have an Emperion down to soak it up.
You're definitely right that this isn't the best Bob build though. I just wanted some card advantage since it's a tap out control deck and Bob combos with Emperion. In the past I've used Painful Truths before for the same reason. What are your thoughts on that?

Yea that much is true, but there are are a few other factors in play. Bob is really good against decks like Tron or something with Ancestral Vision in it, which is more of a problem for this deck than Burn in the first place. I can always use Bob to chump block a Goblin Guide if need be, or side it out game 2 if I wanted. I also have 4 Shambling Vent and 4 Leyline of Sanctity on the board, but really just the Emperion is enough half the time. Game 1 they aren't going to have any sort of answer so that's a free win right there, and Game 2 they need to actually draw their Destructive Revelry or whatever.
tl:dr there are enough "your life total doesn't matter" matches where Bob is good that it makes up for the "life total does matter" matches, especially because I have Emperion which is really good for the "life total does matter" matches.

He's usually an instant win against aggro or burn because they don't maindeck their Destructive Revelry. Some linear decks just don't have an answer.

I've done it a couple times now with Emperion up to shield me from the damage, and once against Tron where I dropped from 19 life to 4 life but still won after hitting his Tower with a Crumble to Dust
