Scapegoat

Instant

As an additional cost to play Scapegoat, sacrifice a creature.

Return any number of target creatures you control to their owner's hand.

     Last_Laugh: Lol yeah, usually I put him in the Creatures list, but I threw him in the Enchantments list for this deck as I run so few red permanents I figured he'd almost never be creature.

     Love the idea of Scapegoat! I'd been considering Faith's Reward for wipe protection but hadn't due to the four mana casting cost, but with getting the option to recast my board for more triggers, I feel like this is exactly the versatility I was looking for!

Since they deal damage to each opponent, they'd each hit for 4 if unblocked (w/3 opponents). 2 vs defending player and 1 vs each of your other 2 opponents. Either way, imo they're too squishy to put in much work though.

If you want go-wide non-combat reach, add Purphoros, God of the Forge so every vamp you cast domes all opponents for 4. If you add Purph, consider Scapegoat because you'd much rather eat a personal Evacuation than end up in topdeck mode. It's anti-wrath tech against hard to dodge wraths like tuck, exile, -X-X, sac, etc. and it can double as a finisher with Purph out.

Nice deck overall but there's 2 types of cards that're underrepresented here... finishers and board protection.

Board Protection: Teferi's Protection, Boros Charm, Flawless Maneuver, Rootborn Defenses, Unbreakable Formation, and Scapegoat (doubles as a finisher with Purphoros out) are all excellent options here depending on your budget. This deck folds like a wet paper towel if you eat a boardwipe and end up in topdeck mode.

Finishers: Shared Animosity and Reconnaissance. Reconnaissance allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block/deter attacks by the end of combat. Creatures are considered 'attacking' until the end of combat step ends (you untap during this step as priority passes around the table)

Feel free to check out my list for ideas and a better explanation for Reconnaissance. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I have 2 main suggestions for you.

First, this deck folds like a wet paper towel to boardwipes. Consider a few cards like Boros Charm, Teferi's Protection, Flawless Maneuver, Rootborn Defenses, Scapegoat, and/or Unbreakable Formation. Protecting your board and avoiding going into topdeck mode make a HUGE difference in this deck.

Second is Reconnaissance. This card allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block/deter attacks by the end of combat. Creatures are considered 'attacking' until the end of combat step ends. You untap during that step as priority passes around the table. This also works after first strike damage is dealt but before normal combat damage making combat entirely one-sided with things like Stromkirk Captain/Stensia Masquerade.

Hey, you changed Sliver Commander, now playing Overlord instead of Hivelord. It looks like you've already added some of those cards I suggested except Scapegoat. Scapegoat could replace Lymph Sliver as it's effect is minimal protection for a five drop Sliver.

Some other upgrades you could make:

By changing to Overlord as Commander then you lose easy access to indestructible from Hivelord thus my advice is increase the amount of Slivers that provide good protection.

Consider Scapegoat. It pulls double duty here as anti-wrath tech or as a finisher with Purphoros out. Like Teferi's Protection, this card will pseudo dodge the best wraths like tuck, exile, sac, -X-X, etc.

Purphoros, God of the Forge is pretty crazy here and domes all opponents for 4 with each vamp you cast.

Scapegoat pulls double duty here as an anti wrath card or as a finisher with Purphoros out. Unlike Unbreakable Formation, this helps pseudo dodge -X-X, tuck, exile, sac, and other hard to dodge wraths. This commander folds like a wet paper towel if you end up in topdeck mode after a boardwipe and this card prevents that.

I'm after people's takes on cards you feel are hidden gems that're underplayed or unknown to most. Feel free to add some artifacts, multicolored, and/or lands to your list if you'd like (Spoiler Alert: I'm too lazy for all that.)

White: Tie Reconnaissance / Scapegoat. Recon is absolutely nuts if you know what you're doing with it. Scapegoat pseudo dodges -X-X, tuck, exile, sac, and other hard to dodge wraths... I'd much rather eat a personal Evacuation than end up in topdeck mode.

Blue: Mana Maze. This significantly slows down countless decks and I NEVER see it.

Black: Archfiend of Depravity. This one baffles me. A 5 mana 5/4 flyer that wipes your opponents boards and/or forces them to hold creatures in hand is nuts.

Red: Smoke. Yeah it takes the right deck like Narset, Enlightened Master or any voltron strategy but the amount of people that've never heard of this card astounds me.

Green: Gaea's Touch. People pay top dollar for extra land drops and this one never sees the light of day.
