Arcane Denial Discussion

I've wanted this fabulous little treasure for awhile as it definitely belongs in the deck. It combos with Privileged Position to make our entire board invulnerable, and ourselves too if we also have Solitary Confinement on the board. To top it off we can always sacrifice it in the later game to tutor any enchantment we want, which can often be game winning. Open the Vaults is at best an emergency card that most of the time does nothing. Wraths in general are declining in the format, and mass enchantment removal is even more rare. It still does nothing if they exile our enchantments, and we can still mass recur them with either of our planeswalkers, or stop the wipe in the first place with Arcane Denial . Its just not worth the slot.
We have a new enchantress on the block! And this isn't just any old enchantress, but a legendary one who costs two mana, is an enchantment creature (hence super tutorable) and has no restriction on cards that can be drawn per turn. Fabulous! Rest in Peace is only good as graveyard hate, and I'll probably just slide Scavenger Grounds into the mana base to replace it. It'll be better of in my Ranar the Ever-Watchful deck. :)
We finally have an enchantments tribal version of Elvish Archdruid , or a non-land version of Serra's Sanctum . Amazing! All the mana this can generate will allow us to cast Omniscience easily, at which point we won't need it any more. As for the Island, this deck draws cards like mad and can definitely do with only thirty-six.

Maybe an Esper Merfolk legend for all the White and Black merfolk from Lorwyn. I currently use Zur to search out Arcane Denial and tribal support enchantments, like Merrow Commerce and Etchings of the Chosen .

Hello, I'm back for another comment! My first cut here would likely be Ajani's Pridemate (he doesn't do much in EDH), followed by Serra Ascendant (he doesn't do much without evasion of some kind), then God-Eternal Kefnet (he's a cool card, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't feel like you have a high enough density of instants/sorceries for him to work right).

Awesome deck! I'll have to send it to my brother so he can get some ideas. I would also recomend Arcane Denial for more 2 cmc countermagic.

This reminds me of my first draft of Vadrok! I built him as voltron at first -- I will say that Stormsurge Kraken is an amazing mutate host if you're going for that Voltron win. Malignus , too, but that's pretty obvious ;)
I'd highly recommend Frantic Search -- it's an amazing feeling to cast it off of Vadrok and regain most of your mana, and it goes great with High Tide and/or Underworld Breach. I really like Curfew over Run Away Together , since Run Away Together doesn't work in the infinite Dockside loops (because your opponents eventually run out of creatures). If you're going for the protective spells, Deflecting Swat is an all-star. I'm not a fan of Arcane Denial , you could swap one of these for it.
I'd also recommend Grinning Ignus over Rootha, just because you can pull off some silly loops with it. Doubly so with Mystic Reflection -- because Reflection copies the whole pile, you can use Reflection + Ignus + Vadrok to staple like 20 copies of Vadrok's ability onto the same creature haha.
Finally, careful with that infinite Dack Fayden line: your opponents will draw into all their deck's interaction. So unless you've cast Silence or Grand Abolisher beforehand, you can get blown out. When feasible, I prefer to infinitely recast Reality Shift to deck my opponents, with a similar loop :) Oh, and Hedron Crab and Brain Freeze are all-stars.
Hope this helps! :D It's great to see more Vadrok players running around...

YES! I built an Edric, Spymaster of Trest deck with only commons and uncommon creatures that were small and hard to block. Cards like Faerie Seer , Slither Blade , and Invisible Stalker make some great card draw, and your wincons can be things like Overrun and Triumph of the Hordes . Throw in some non-rare counterspells like Counterspell and Arcane Denial and you're off to the races.
