Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider

Legendary Creature — Phyrexian Praetor

Trample, haste

If you would put one or more counters on a permanent or player, put twice that many of each of those kinds of counters on that permanent or player instead.

If an opponent would put one or more counters on a permanent or player, they put half that many of each of those kinds of counters on that permanent or player instead, rounded down.

Fun deck idea. I can't really think of any suggestions other than Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider, though, to double counters on your commander.

This link here is an example of what current modern infect decks look like. Specifically, the deck aims to win the game as fast as possible, ideally on turns 2 or 3. The deck doesn't want the game to go long because that will most-certainly mean defeat.

Added to the above, even non-aggressive modern decks still generally don't want to be playing more than 3-4 cards costing 4-mana, with nothing above this cost (you've got a whopping 20 cards costing 4-or-more, which will cause your deck to be miserably slow). Modern infect decks typcically don't want to play anything costing more than 2-mana (Though some more recent decks have been playing Phyrexian Crusader to help versus some matchups).

So, firstly I'd strongly suggest ditching all your slow and sluggish cards - all of Core Prowler, Evolution Sage, Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider, Ajani, Sleeper Agent, Tamiyo, Compleated Sage, and Fuel for the Cause, Brokers Ascendancy, Hadana's Climb  Flip, Inexorable Tide, and Oath of Teferi. All of these cards are faaaar too slow and will just give your opponent too much time to get a stable boardstate and lock you out of the game. I would also suggest ditching Unbounded Potential, just because it's a weak spell, and adding a 3rd colour just needlessly complicates what you're doing given your awkward landbase (if you play just 2 colours you can probably just run basics and not slow yourself down running taplands).

Cards to consider adding in include Become Immense, Vines of Vastwood, Mutagenic Growth, Might of Old Krosa, Blossoming Defense, Distortion Strike, Scale Up, and Rancor. When playtesting your deck, you want to be aiming to reliably deal 10 infect within the first 2-3 turns.

This is a Temur Superfriends list that focuses on Polymorph type spells targeting Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh to put Hullbreaker Horror and/or Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider Directly into play. Vorinclex allows us to do superfriends thigs, and Horror allows us to slow down our opponents and can also provide infinite mana via Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh + Sol Ring .

Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider doesn't interact with Alaundo the Seer. If Vorinclex's ability used the term "permanent card" then it could mean a card in any zone, but since it just says "permanent" that means it's only referring to objects on the battlefield. It won't affect the cards Alaundo puts into exile.

aszubat on Does Vorinclex create an anti-synergie …

Let's say I have Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider and both me and my enemy have a Alaundo the Seer on board. Now when I use Alaundo's ability I have to put twice as many time counters on it becaue of Vorinclex, basically doubling the time I have to wait for the card to get played. My enemy on the other hand would put only half as much counters on his cards, halfing the time he needs to wait. I understand that Vorinclex only affects permanents in this case, but if Alaundo targets a creature/ artefact/ ... spell that would still create the anti-synergie, wouldn't it?

Am I understanding this interaction correctly and is it really an anti-synergie in this case?

Some thoughts:

  • Generally speaking you want to aim for most of your deck to be playsets (4-ofs) of cards. Having lots of cards run only as 1-of and 2-of copies will only lead to your deck being super inconsistent, and make it a lot harder to present a coherent plan.

  • Modern decks typically find it hard to justify running more than 4 cards (1 playset) costing 4 mana, and often run nothing above this. I think in particular you're going to really struggle to ever cast Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider or Avabruck Caretaker  Flip in a game and have them provide some kind of meaningful impact. I'd suggest ditching them.

  • Some of your cards are too situational to ever be practically useful in a decks mainboard. In particular i'd suggest ditching Fade into Antiquity (too niche), Tamiyo's Safekeeping (too narrow an application, you have loads of creatures so who cares if one dies?), Coalition Relic (this thing costs too much mana to begin with, by the time you can cast it you're already got enough mana to do most things anyway), and Wrenn and Seven (you don't run nearly enough lands to make use of this, plus its not really what your deck wants to do).

  • Golgari decks (known as "The Rock") thrive off attrition style play. In that vein, you may want to consider adding hand disruption cards (like Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize), as well as some universally good destruction cards (like Abrupt Decay, Assassin's Trophy)

Abaques on New Sheoldred price speculation

A huge number of packs for Dominaria United are going to be opened. Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider is at around $28 right now and its a more powerful card in EDH compared to Sheoldred.

Jin-Gitaxias, Progress Tyrant is at about $10 right now though I would argue that Sheoldred is a better card in EDH in comparison.

I think that Sheoldred will end up somewhere in between, though I'm gonna guess a price of around $15 after a couple months. That could obviously change if it somehow fits into a good standard, pioneer or modern deck, but I'm a bit doubtful, she seems built for EDH. I think release weekend will probably be the best time to buy. Long term it could creep back up, but I don't think it'll hit $30-40 for a long time.

Its a very good EDH card, but there are a whole lot of those around and Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is really only great in a dedicated wheel deck, but it will also be a magnet for removal in those decks.

Have you considered Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider? He's can be cheated out with Sisay AND enables you Planeswalkers to ult as soon as they enter the battlefield. Also, Blackblade Reforged is tutorable with Sisay, and increases her Power, enabling her to cheat out a wider array of Legendary Permanents.
