I vote for Malacrass.Mechanically: Vanessa has her vengeance of VanCleef buff, but Malacrass can counter that with his drain soul. Vanessa has her backstab, but Malacrass can scatter spirit bolts in every direction regardless of where he's facing. He can also steal her own abilites and fire them back at her (Light help Vanessa if he can snatch her Deadly Blades technique).In addition, while Vanessa summons a stream of relatively weak adds, Malacrass brings a pair of two much more powerful friends to the table, aiding him in the fight.Thematically:Vanessa is a young, largely self-taught rogue whose greatest stength isn't combat at all, but persuasiveness and charisma. And while she brags that she excelts at poisons that affect the mind, consider...Malacrass is a hex lord. A dark shaman who deals in voodoo spells and curses. It's highly possible that he's seen and/or dealt with the kind of mind-alterations that Venessa trades in. And again, he's an expert at turning an enemy's strengths against them. If Vanessa's unlucky, that line of dialogue - "Dis a nightmare ya don' wake up from!" might just prove prophetic as Malacrass turns her own nightmare potions against her.Consider also: Malacrass is the troll who ripped the power out of the Amani gods and bound them to mortal flesh, "keeping the darkest one for himself." Jin'do styles himself as "the Godbreaker" these days, but Hex Lord Malacrass literally took the powers of five primal gods for himself and his followers. And even though he was defeated in the original Zul'Aman raid, he managed to come back from the dead and DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN.Hex Lord Malacrass is practically the Amani antichrist.

"Siphon Soul When siphoning Vanessa's soul, Malacrass would gain the following abilities: Blind, Slice and Dice, Wound Poison"All she really has to do is survive long enough for Vengeance to build then unleash.
