Ruinous Ultimatum Discussion

Thought more about this and there's still tons of options for this deck really. In my previous comment I mention how you may want to double up on Extus's effect with stuff like Ravos, Soultender but there's also enchantment options that may be a little harder for your opponents to get rid of. Stuff like Debtors' Knell and Palace Siege can also be useful enchantments to help you bring useful stuff back to cast multiple times. Crackling Doom is also a pretty good card that you could add as a substitute for any of the kill spells. A possibility for this deck could also be to reanimate some troublesome creatures for your opponents like Master of Cruelties Raving Dead Virtus the Veiled or Dire Fleet Ravager to help make killing your opponents with the sorcery easier. More boardwipes that only affect your opponents would also be good so something like Ruinous Ultimatum can help make the job a little easier. Other boardwipes such as Slash the Ranks Austere Command Merciless Eviction and Martial Coup give you some more options and not only target creatures but other pesky permanents as well.

Thought you'd appreciate the true singleton format for this one. As for why Vorinclex, well it seems like Spike and Timmy have helped you figure that out ;)
Urza's Ruinous Blast and Primevals' Glorious Rebirth : Originally these were contestants, but this started out as a Party Matters deck (Wizard, Cleric, Warrior, Rogues) but I ended up not having enough of a balance of those types to warrant focusing heavily on the mechanic.
Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain : The point of the deck is to not cast the legendary spells. Also, she has her own deck.
Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage : This is one that was cut after deciding I had too many Wizards when I was still looking at Party Matters. Might warrant revisiting.
Kamahl's Druidic Vow : The primary reason this isn't in the deck is I don't have it. Otherwise I dunno what I'd cut.
Anafenza, the Foremost : Similarly, don't has. Will have to source as it's glorious.
Blackblade Reforged : Too many other good options to include this, unfortunately.
Heroes' Podium : I really like this one. Didn't know it existed. Will have to source.
Farseek : No idea what to cut. Also probably didn't find it when going through cards and was giving priority to LEGENDS
Thran Temporal Gateway : I've no excuse as to why this ain't in except that I wanted to use Sisay to cheat, not anything else. Which isn't a good excuse but it is mine.
Fblthp, the Lost : Wow yeah I do need one of these.
Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite : Wouldn't go in here anyway. She'd go into Mono-White. And I'm not gonna get my hopes up on getting more than one.
Avacyn, Angel of Hope : If I had an extra, lol. She's basically an auto-include in any white deck.
Sigarda, Host of Herons : See above.
Eerie Ultimatum : Another card that...I wish I had.
Ruinous Ultimatum : Ehh,, I feel like one ultimatum is a bit much for the deck and I'd rather Eerie.
Weatherlight : Valid point. Now, ugh gotta figure out how to fit it in.
Legacy Weapon : Bad Vorthos. Bad.
Rhystic Study : Bad Spike. Bad
Curiosity : ...bad Johnny, bad.

Ataraxey There are four dedicated board wipes ( Cyclonic Rift , Ruinous Ultimatum , In Garruk's Wake , Elspeth, Sun's Champion .). For targeted removal I run the following: Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker , Garruk, Apex Predator , Valki, God of Lies Flip(Tibalt side), Erebos, Bleak-Hearted , and as a last resort Cyclonic Rift .
These have been sufficient for most games I've played. I tend to be in slower playgroups that don't combo off on turn 2 or 3. But I'd be happy to include more if you have some suggestions on what to remove for them.

I would recommend replacing Ruinous Ultimatum with Merciless Eviction . Springleaf Drum and Idol of Oblivion have performed very well for me. Probably would be a good idea to upgrade your mana base with Theros Temples, Zendikar/Kaldheim two-face lands or painlands like Caves of Koilos . Check out my Edgar decks: Edgar Aggro Edgar casual

Cards to maybe add

Hey, well done on a budget.
Athreos and Plaguecrafter are good, but I don't think the rest of the aristocrat strategy is doing enough. Consider cutting most of it for more pillowfort and hatebears?
An advantage of having more flying hatebears is they can more easily get you back the monarch if an opponent gains control of it.
- Rule of Law
- Bloodthirsty Blade
- Thorn of the Black Rose
- Kunoros, Hound of Athreos
- Ruinous Ultimatum
- Mind Stone
- Talisman of Hierarchy
There's some budget manabase upgrades to consider:
Good luck with your deck.

To further supplement dragonstryke58's answer:
It might be useful to cover what protection won't stop.
It's not immune to things multicolored cards have its controller do, so Doom Foretold can make you sacrifice it.
The damage-prevention part of protection can be circumvented by cards that stop damage prevention, so if your Serpent blocked a Leyline Prowler (not the other way around, because protection would stop Leyline Prowler from blocking Stonecoil Serpent) while they also had Questing Beast in play, your Serpent would still take damage and get killed by the deathtouch effect.
