Victory is not intended to be used as a base malt. The Briess datasheet does not list its diastatic power and suggests a maximum of 25% in certain styles.

Munich goes great with Tettnang.
Vienna and Northern Brewer!

The MO and Cascade is really good, i've made it a few times. I would bump up the hops to a full ounce for 60 or at least add a half ounce at 10 minutes. The victory wont convert on its own. MO and Willamette or MO and Fuggles are both really good SMaSH beers too. Have fun, they are a great way to learn how to build a grain bill.

Cheers

I've never tried Vienna or just 2 row in a SMaSH. I bet they would be great though. Its fun to make these beers, so simple and like you said there is a ton of options. Let us know how the others turn out.

I prefer to target at least 20 IBU by the Rager formula for a basic SMaSH ale. It won't be any worse of a beer with less hops, it just won't tell you as much about that variety.

I just did a 2-row/fuggles which was fine, though a touch boring.

Also have Vienna / Mt Hood in the fermenter and initial tastings have seemed interesting.

I was under the impression that Victory malt is just what Briess calls its amber malt. And I know amber malt and brown malt can convert themselves.
