Vicious Offering Discussion

I think you need a sideboard. Unless you don't intend on playing with one, I'll throw you some suggestions. Since you're on a budget, I'll consider that in my card choices too:

Discard Spells - Duress , Divest , Despise

Grave Hate - Bojuka Bog , Faerie Macabre

Creature Removal - Doom Blade , Diabolic Edict , Lightning Axe , Magmatic Sinkhole , Vicious Offering

Artifact Hate - Smash to Smithereens , Ingot Chewer

Carrion Feeder is probably better than Phyrexian Broodlings in this list. Mortician Beetle might also be very nice. I'd prefer Defile over Vicious Offering , you really want to sacrifice things to your creatures. Generally look at Mono-Black Aristocrats decks, as those have pretty much the same game plan as you.

Viscera Seer is a sac outlet that will let you scry.

Ashnod's Altar will get you some colorless mana when you sac a creature.

Spawning Pit isn’t a great one, but will make tokens once you use the other ability.

Altar of Dementia in case you want to mill yourself or an opponent.

Carrion Feeder can become huge by sacrificing creatures.

Vicious Offering can act as a good piece of creature removal around indestructible if you kick it.

Attrition by sacrificing and paying 1 black it will act as removal.

5dollarMTG, those are good suggestions. I have played this deck a few times now and it's a lot of fun to play in its current form (as long as the other player doesn't have a lot of counter spells...) but adding those in would help for sure! Thinking about replacing the Black Cat cards with 2X Vicious Offering and 2X Disfigure as the cats really don't do much for the deck.

I'd assume that the deck is meant for the best of 3 ladder since you have a sideboard. I don't like my record against aggro lists either so I run 4 Fountain of Renewal and 4 Dawn of Hope right in the main deck instead of the usual Chemister's Insight and other forms of draw. You can also replace Vicious Offering with Moment of Craving since this one offers lifegain and you don't have a creature to sack to the first one anyway.

Hope this suggestion helps, cheers :)

Vicious Offering is an instant, though, while Severed Strands is a sorcery. You can also choose not to sacrifice a creature with Vicious Offering , and the lifegain from Severed Strands may not be relevant with Slimefoot, the Stowaway .

Overall, I think these factors give Vicious Offering a clear edge, although I would consider boarding it out against +1/+1 counters.

BYE on Exile Pile

So a dream start would be something like: T1 Duress T2 Vicious Offering , Drill Bit T3 Burglar Rat , Vicious Offering So thats 5 cards from hand on T3, hopefully thats a start we can expect and from here keep opponents answers to a minimum so that Kaya can step in and finish things off.

Love the idea of a witches and curses deck, but I think I'd add a bit more early game removal. Vicious Offering could pass as a witch card. Maybe Disfigure ?
