B/G Ramp Disruption (Help Needed!)
         Here is something that I've been working on lately. I've only tested against U/B and Valakut, but will test against others later.
        4 Lotus Cobra
        4 Overgrown Battlement
        3 Grave Titan
        2 Primeval Titan
        2 Wurmcoil Engine
        1 Avenger of Zendikar
        3 Explore
        3 Consuming Vapors
        3 Inquisition of Kozilek
        3 Duress
        2 Doom Blade
        2 Garruk Wildspeaker
        1 Liliana Vess
        1 Summoning Trap
        1 Mimic Vat
        4 Verdant Catacombs
        2 Marsh Flats
        2 Misty Rainforest
        4 Tectonic Edge
        7 Swamp
        6 Forest
        3 Memoricide
        3 Ratchet Bomb
        3 Summoning Trap
        2 Consume the Meek
        1 Liliana Vess
        1 Terastodon
        1 Inquisition of Kozilek
        1 Duress
        I was having a lot of trouble against Valakut, and I think I need to really disrupt their hand to give me a better chance, so I've thought about playing Mind Rot in the board. I'm also thinking that 3 Consuming Vapors mainboard is too many. Any suggestions?

         Valulut is a daunting challenge, but think about the deck ( valukut ) as a whole. This deck was a tier 2 deck, and a joke, before primeval titan. So if you are G/B, memoricide for titan seems like your best option. Additional help from your sideboard could be acidic slimes, to assist your tech edges in blowing up valukuts. I am working on a GR/WT/BLA deck that is less ramp and more aggro, but kind of similar to your deck.

         I'm considering going that route using 3 Grave Titan, 4 Banslayers, and 4 Abyssal Persecutors with the same ramp and disruption package.

         I would suggest that if you did cut that 3rd vapors that you add in a second mimic vat.

         I don't think I run enough removal to need another Mimic Vat.
