Also HuskyMatusky the Lightning Greaves are for Sakashima of a Thousand Faces because I don't care about copying him which is a copy of Vial Smasher the Fierce(along with his other abilities) only to protect the no legend rule ability, while Swiftfoot Boots is for Vial Smasher the Fierce since it is only hexproof which I can still target, just not opponents.

Thank you for the comment HuskyMatusky but I have Vial Smasher the Fierce partnered with Sakashima of a Thousand Faces for that reason, he allows the legend rule to be null and void as along he's out.

Don't most of your clone effects immediately die due to legendary rule if your goal is to copy Vial Smasher the Fierce?

I think Phyrexian Metamorph, Clever Impersonator, Clone, Cryptoplasm, Sakashima's Student, Stunt Double, Spark Double and Mirage Mirror all don't ignore legendary rule and therefore one of your Vial Smasher the Fierce will die.

Also while just excellent cards in general Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots kind of backfire if your goal is to copy Vial Smahser.

The main reason I personally believe Blasphemous Act is a staple is that it's in red; with almost no other options in the color, Act is basically just the only card that gets the job done. And the fact that is uses damage isn't to be overlooked--as mentioned above, Vial Smasher the Fierce-type decks love this sort of thing.

Past that, I do think Vanquish will be a staple. Not because it's replacing Act, but because it's on par with it.

The best wipes in EDH are currently, IMO and in no particular order:

  1. Vanquish the Horde

  2. Blasphemous Act

  3. Tragic Arrogance

  4. Cyclonic Rift

  5. Out of Time

It could definitely be a staple as efficient as it is. Boardwipes are always going to be better or worse depending on your playgroup though, and having to commit to white might actually make it see less play than Blasphemous Act Many strategies in white revolve around your creatures, so a boardwipe can hurt you more than they can in red where you can build a more spells matter strategy. I think part of what makes act so popular is that it's in red. That's not to say that Vanquish the Horde won't see a ton of play in BW control, because in that kind of deck, it is awesome.

Blasphemous Act is also amazing with Vial Smasher the Fierce who is a popular commander.

So, time will tell I guess :) Vanquish is an awesome card and maybe it will see equal play to blasphemous act. It could also be that vanquish will see similar play to Doomskar which, even though they do different things, they may fit into the same decks. Doomskar being an early game value sweeper and vanquish being a late game saving sweeper. I'd bet that the decks running doomskar would be the decks that want to run vanquish.

I think that maybe the best part of vanquish is that with Guardian of Faith it can be a 5 mana one sided boardwipe if you have just a ton of white mana.

I have yet to play this deck on paper, but I did the best I could in terms of where I want it to be, though a few modifications are in order. Babbling aside, the reason why I did not use Vial Smasher the Fierce was that he would have been an obvious choice to partner with Ikra, though I plan to make a more casual, fun list with those two ladies shortly.

In my opinion, Kediss is an underplayed commander due to combat-based strategies not have much impact unless given special privileges via card creation. Using this knowledge to my advance, if one person allowed me an opening, they open the door to everyone else's demise without a second thought

This list looks like it could be real scary. Guardian Augmenter might be a good addition.

Any reason you aren't doing infect with Vial Smasher the Fierce?

Glad someone took notice of this guy, seems decent on paper! Vampiric Tutor or even Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire might be decent in a deck that wants to attack and manipulate the top deck. Varragoth opens up some sneaky plays with Opposition Agent, where you can simply exile a combo piece from an opponent's deck by targeting them with boast ability. Maze of Ith would also allow you to negate your varragoth attack keeping him safe. Maybe not cEDH viable but New Blood and Blood Tribute both have kicker costs that can use your commanders vampire ability. Also thinking of Deflecting Swat and Deadly Rollick. And theres always Hatred or Unspeakable Symbol even Vial Smasher the Fierce
