Vraska, Relic Seeker Discussion

Possibly consider Rout or Force of Despair so you can pop everything on an opponents turn or stop a repopulate from an opponent. First time I've seen Vraska, Relic Seeker, hoping some of my friends don't see her in a hurry.

Urth_drgn219 Vicious Shadows is my control hate, it is a great tutor card if everyone has a scary board. I like Sarkhan Vol a lot and will get a copy eventually but I've used Xenagos, the Reveler in that role for a while and he works great. Im not the biggest fan of Vraska, Relic Seeker as she just ends up being awkward removal most games. I have Phyrexian Arena in other decks but I like Fecundity better in this deck. Eternal Witness is just a better Golgari Findbroker too. Thank you for the suggestions!

Helm of Obedience if not going combo route
Arisen Gorgon Too dependant on Liliana being on the field
Gorgon Recluse Too high CMC for what you do
Infernal Medusa Medusa /= Gorgon
Keepsake Gorgon Too high mana for one and done
Korozda Gorgon Too high CMC && not running heavy +1+1 Presence
Ohran Viper As you are in blue, you have better options for card draw, especially because this one means you have to deal damage to player first.
Oona's Blackguard Cut unless you are rogue heavy
Pitiless Gorgon All your snakes will typically have deathtouch or be able to gain it, at 3 mana this should do more.
Gaze of the Gorgon A little too high mana but hilarious at the same time.
Vraska, Relic Seeker Might be better for pirate deck, it's not on flavor at all here, and not in line with or as powerful as your other walkers.
Vraska, Swarm's Eminence This is useful however high mana for what it does, totally up to you, this could go either way.
Chromatic Lantern To ensure you make colors. Given you're going heavy black we may need to revise this item.
Chevill, Bane of Monsters super value at 2 cmc
Baleful Strix Super value at 2cmc, fly, dedtouch, card draw
Fathom Feeder value town, and if you yank combo pieces this can help facilitate a win with it's ability
Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons 2cmc, high high values and makes SNEKS!!!!
Hythonia the Cruel Yeet cannons all non-gorgon creatures + big creature
Seshiro the Anointed SNEK SNEK +2+2 to all SNEKS! Draw card wen snek do damage!
Kaseto, Orochi Archmage Unblockable +2+2 SNEKS!
Prowling Serpopard Make's your Sneks and Gorgon's Un-Counterable
Stonecoil Serpent cool snek, but I think you might already have cooler in deck & on list
Orochi Hatchery Funny stuff this one, totally up to you
Bow of Nylea all creatures get deathtouch + more check this one out
Ohran Frostfang Gives attacking creatures you control ded touch and when your creatures damage a player, draw a card.

Sure, you can ask. I could give you my discord too if that helps @ArgonathDK.
Greenwarden is just a 2nd witness and only used to recur one of my game winning instants or sorceries in case I haven’t found witness that game already.
Havengul lich is actually pretty good and underrated imho. It can steal creatures from my opponents graves but also brings insane value to my table. Let’s say you face aggressive decks and use spore frog every turn. Now you need to recast it with Muldrotha and that’s it, no more creatures from your grave. Havengul lich gets around that 1 creature per turn restriction to cast multiple creatures from your grave or from your opponents. In addition let’s say you got kokusho and havengul on the field. Now you cast Phantasmal Image from your grave and copy kokusho. You sac it to the legendary rule and get the kokusho trigger, pay 1 for havengul lich and 2 for the phantasmal image again and repeat as often as you can pay 2U. That’s 5 dmg for each opponent and 15 life for you for every 3 mana you spend in a multiplayer game. Add gravebreaker lamia and it’s only 2 mana, that’s some serious dmg and lifegain there.
Gilded drake is nice and I played it before, but at least in my meta it tends to backfire. My playgroup plays a lot of clones and stealing Muldrotha is about the best way to make you lose the game. So giving my opponents a tool against me by putting a gilded drake on the field isn’t exactly the best idea.
Vraska, Relic Seeker is again a hidden gem. It doesn’t look too great at first but look: the turn you play it it isn’t that great, 6 mana to destroy something and get a treasure is ok but not great. But every following turn it’s a beast. Destroy something again and get another treasure, vraska dies, recast it using your treasures and 4 colorless, use her again to destroy something and get a treasure. So every following turn she basically destroys 2 thing for 4 colorless mana. That’s a pretty good ratio for a single card and makes her a really good control tool to build your boardstate to an advantage.

Are these good as top-end value engines?
