Sulfuric Vortex

Enchantment

At the beginning of each player's upkeep, Sulfuric Vortex deals 2 damage to that player.

If a player would gain life, that player gains no life instead.

HankyMueller Politics is on my list. There's some discussion about that one in particular back on page 6, but to summarize, I haven't seen an objective distinction between "political deck" and "multiplayer deck." While it's possible to build a deck that extensively focuses on the interactions between players, those same interactions should be a consideration for even the most linear multiplayer deck. If a deck contains two Monarch cards, a vote card, and some spot removal and board wipes ("I'll Abrupt Decay that Sulfuric Vortex for you if you protect me next turn"), would that qualify as a political deck? If not, why not?

I'm not discounting the suggestion, I just haven't been able to put together an objective and concise definition for the Politics hub. If you have any thoughts, please let me know.

(Note to self: is Voting a hub? Check this.)

Sulfuric Vortex is a card I loosely bundle in with the group slug stuff I tried to avoid when building this deck. Compared to Manabarbs its nothing too mean, but it kinda rides that line. It's definitely something I would consider if my main playgroup played more life gain strategies.

As for lands, I try to avoid colorless lands because Torbran costs three red pips. Out of those three, I would consider running Scavenger Grounds for the graveyard hate. In general I don't want to spend a turn exiling graveyards rather than playing an aggressive card though. Thats why Anger of the Gods and Kumano Faces Kakkazan  Flip are nice. The other two lands don't get their damage boosted by Torbrans effect, so I don't think they make the cut.

It seems like you would have probably thought of it, so maybe I‘m missing something, but wouldn‘t Sulfuric Vortex be an absolute slam dunk in this list..?

Also you could probably run some incidental value lands in a mono colored list like Scavenger Grounds, Desert and Sunscorched Desert.

Love this kind of thing, it’s so mean! I’m a little sad to see no Havoc Festival or Sulfuric Vortex, though. They work here nicely! +1!!!
