You know, Algae Gharial could be neat here. It counters the -1/-1s being put on it, and keeps growing. It also has shroud.

Love the deck!

The Thornbite Staff + Vampire Nighthawk combo is stellar.

+1 for that combo alone.

This deck idea is fantastic, but it could certainly get filled out.

If you want to pump your Vampire Nighthawk while you are wiping the field, I would recommend Blade of the Bloodchief; definitely a no-brainer.

If you want to go creature heavy, focus on cards that benefit from things dying and swing for lethal.Cards such as:

If you want to be pure effect based, something like Blood Artist would provide a positive life-net while you're also slowly eating away at your opponents.

I am probably going to throw together my own idea for this deck; if it's alright with you, of course!

yeah, specifically, when a triggered ability triggers, it doesn't go on to the stack until the player who controls it get priority. Algae Gharial will trigger during the resolution of Blasphemous Act, but its triggered ability will not be put onto the stack, much less resolve, until after Blasphemous Act has resolved and killed Algae Gharial.

In order for the Gharial to benefit from a boardwipe like that, you'd have to protect it from it. something along the lines of Sword of Fire and Ice or Mark of Asylum (which would protect your entire board from Blasphemous Act)

It'll get no counters.

Blasphemous Act deals 13 damage to every creature, all at once. Then, each one will die from having lethal damage marked as a SBA. Even though the ability triggers for each other creature, the Algae Gharial is no longer on the battlefield by the time the abilities resolve

We're playing commander and I just casted Blasphemous Act to wipe a board of about 15 creatures.

Will Algae Gharial (that was a 4/4) get the +1/+1 tokens now - because other creatutes die - and surive the 13 damage from Blasphemous Act ?

Exaclty. I meant Shroud, sorry.

Just like Algae Gharial. So it wouldn't be necessary to sacrifice it after it resolved?

Could you explain what you mean by mantle? There's too many things that could refer to without some explanation: Nim Deathmantle, Paradise Mantle, Umbral Mantle all come to mind.

Perhaps you mean shroud? As on... Algae Gharial? Nothing remarkable happens. Animate Dead targets the creature in the graveyard, where shroud does not function; it only matters on the battlefield. Once the creature is on the battlefield and Animate Dead is attached, it doesn't matter if the creature has shroud, it's not an active target of a spell anymore.

I'm not sure you want to run Algae Gharial, as tokens never go into the graveyard.
