Quote from hotschmalz »Here's my intial brew for Volrath: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/volrath-reach-out-and-touch-someone/?cb=156502966444
(the deck is built for a 20 poison counter RL Meta so it's trying to go for the long game, not the aggro game)
It's still a bit clunky and could use a lot of fine tuning but some of my favorite interactions are with stuff like Cephalid Constable or Needle Specter or Cold-Eyed Selkie. If Volrath can connect bounce/draw/discard x7 is backbreaking.
I'm also interested in finding some way to make him a Sultai Kraj deck. Any good creatures in black with tap/untap abilities?

Quote from Neptune »I feel the need to speak up for Vhati il-Dal. I built a deck with him at the helm with lots of funny -1/-1 shenannigans. It's a flavorful include in the 99, too.
Quote from hotschmalz »something that is interesting as well is copying consecrated sphinx because volrath stays a copy till your next turn. hellooooooooooo card draw!
Quote from hotschmalz »any idea how volrath interacts with spawnwrithe or giant adephage?
Quote from FearDReaper »Idk if this is smart or not but im thinking of using a lot of doing a voltron thing. 7 power is a great floor for power cause you only need to hit 3 times. Just copy an unblockable like Slither Blade to swing as an unblockable and try to use +1 counters or even stuff like Thornling/Aetherling/Endling to pump him up for bigger damage. The lings also have protective abilities too.
