Are there more cards like Phyrexian Reclamation and Tortured Existence where they can be activated mutiple times and can be activated on opponents turns. Colors I am working with are red and black.

Have you thought about Phyrexian Reclamation? It seems like a fairly easy way to get Kroxa back in your hand for a recast?

Hey abierto,

Indeed it’s been awhile since you commented, glad to hear from you. Thank you for bringing these cards onto my radar, let’s discuss them - I can easily tell that Survival of the Fittest would dramatically change the way the deck plays – with Survival of the Fittest + Dregscape Sliver on the board, access to at least 3 mana, 1 creature in hand, and at least an additional I can combo out and win the game on that turn. The only drawbacks I can see here are the mana requirements coupled with the more than likely opponent interaction that would be coming my way. Given that Dregscape Sliver’s ability is only sorcery speed – that only solidifies my concern as A simple Bojuka Bog could wreck me If I do not populate my graveyard with care and proper timing. This makes me wish that Paradox Engine wasn’t banned – I really miss that card. The verdict is out on Survival of the Fittest, I want to like to this card but I can’t help but feel hesitant in including it (let alone the investment). I think I’ll maybe proxy it in and see where that takes me. Speaking which, check out this really awesome alter:

Dregscape Sliver on the other hand I’m considering including. Maybe cutting Patriarch's Bidding, as I do not like the mana investment and the potential added bonus of assisting opponents. In the metas I play in there are a lot of tribal decks – I’m sitting across from at least one or two other tribal decks every game. I’m ordering a copy today, so thank you for mentioning that card again.

Hi Sneuxfox (death by Snu snu?),

Welcome to my deck page! Thank you for posting. I’ve always wanted to work Magma Sliver into this decklist, but I don’t think it would be a good fit – Magma lends itself toward a Sliver deck that compliments a more Aggro strategy where the goal is to hit a “critical mass” of creatures and abuse enough evasion keywords to get a single creature to knock an opponent out. First Sliver's Chosen would be an absolute must include alongside Magma Sliver, as it would solidify a Voltron strategy by stacking Exalted triggers alongside Magma’s ability. I definitely agree that the aforementioned can get out hand when you have just one Sliver be the target of multiple triggers.

I agree that it's criminal that Magma doesn't make it's way into alot of lists, maybe it's due to most decks wanting to lean into the Mid-range Sliver tool box? Or maybe it's because the deck would need to be more Voltron centric? I decided to throw together a quick decklist as an example of what I think the average deck running Magma Sliver would look like:

What're your thoughts on the list, Sneuxfox ?

I know it's not quite as clean as some of your other pieces, but what about Phyrexian Reclamation as a reliable way to ensure you can pull creature pieces back from the grave in cases where you might not have the whip etc.?

Additionally Mimic Vat and Soul Foundry could prove useful ways to abuse copies of the pieces you like to recur

I love Reconnaissance in decks like this. Cheap Enchantment, gives mass vigilance, and allows you to keep your attackers safe. Expen$ive though. I jam it into lots of decks. I think I have it in four?

Phyrexian Reclamation would be a decent choice for card advantage, since you have so many faeries. I like it a lot but it may not be better than regular card draw. Your call of course.

Lord_of_Cardboard A couple of budget land replacements could be Mortuary Mire or Witch's Cottage. If you want you could just add a swamp and use some enchantment tech to recur creatures; Haunted Crossroads or Phyrexian Reclamation are very solid budget options that are much more affordable, cheap to cast and use, and are a harder to remove permanent type. Another really easy place to cut a lot of cost of the deck would be the mana base; if you don't care about using Eldrazi Displacer you can cut a lot of the colorless lands and you won't really lose that much utility. I would try and fit in Smothering Tithe if you can afford it, that card is excellent and it really gives you an edge. Other than that you might consider cutting the expensive/hrd to find planeswalkers like Daretti. He is nice but not integral to the gameplan. I hope your version comes together!

Hey, figured I would return the favor and drop a comment on your Vito deck here, I also see a couple of cards that I had in my initial list that I took out that I thought I'd share my thinking on in case it's helpful!

I was initially running both Corrupt and Consume Spirit in my Vito build but ended up taking them out because they seemed to be taking up room without having the ability to put a lot of pressure on the entire board or close out the game in a pass. On the one hand they are attractive options because they allow you to potentially kill off a single player who might have a problematic board state but they would have to have low life or you would have to have a lot of mana to pull it off. I chose to run Exsanguinate instead as it has huge synergy off Vito by hitting every player, playing it for x = 5 returns 15 life to you and deals a total of 30 damage to group, with 20 focused on a single player. It is, admittedly, like $7 right now so if that's a barrier you could consider Blood Tithe, it won't win you the game but 4 mana for 9 life and 18 damage to the board is a decent trade or Smitten Swordmaster might be workable for big value if you fancy taking a knight tribal bend to your creature list, I think they're like $0.25 each.

If the X cost, single targets are appealing to you a bigger ramp package might be helpful which can be tough since Crypt Ghast is apparently $10 these days. For one shot mana Bubbling Muck can be helpful and is maybe $2, Crypt of Agadeem could work after a board wipe for like $4. Maybe...Phyrexian Reclamation x Burnished Hart and/or Wild-Field Scarecrow, has some synergy with other cards too. Ramp in Mono Black is tough on a budget!

Other thought was you have a lot of targeted removal in sorceries, there are always a million options for creature removal in black but you are limited in ability to leverage them if you can't cast at instant speed to respond to an attacker or to remove a combo from the board on another player's turn. Maybe consider Doomblade, Victim of Night, or Tragic Slip as low cost alternatives!

Good luck with the build!
