Bankrupt in Blood
As an additional cost to cast this spell, sacrifice two creatures.
Draw three cards.
Bankrupt in Blood Discussion

Bankrupt in Blood to me is not a good value here. I would suggest a few (maybe two, three) copies of Midnight Reaper . It seems to me you want your creatures on board and that going wide is a thing for you.

TheRoaringRegisaur Interesting, the only card draw i have in the deck are Priest of Forgotten Gods , Midnight Reaper , and Bankrupt in Blood . Is there any other black or white card draw that you would recommend? I'm not really sure what to add to balance the deck out either. Would it be better to find one drops to take away from two drops or so? I know that WAR has some new ones.

Bankrupt in Blood gives you a lot of bang for your buck, but only at sorcery speed. You could sacrifice creatures more reactively with Costly Plunder . Wait until someone uses Lava Coil or Vraska's Contempt and then kill your own creature. Fewer cards but it also keeps your spirit tokens.

I'm going to try running Bankrupt in Blood in my modern token machine... and I noticed that pretty much nobody outside of EDH is using it. Seems legit in modern tokens. Anyone else already tried it and dismissed it? Why no love? Cheers!

A quick rundown of the first changes I'd try to implement.
- Start / Finish
- Ministrant of Obligation
- Doomed Traveler
- Not Forgotten
- Lingering Souls
- Diabolic Intent
- Altar's Reap , Bankrupt in Blood , Blood Divination , Costly Plunder
- Severed Strands , Bone Splinters
- Torgaar, Famine Incarnate , Demon of Catastrophes
- Knight of the White Orchid
- Spectral Reserves
- Vessel of Malignity
- Vessel of Ephemera
- Debtors' Knell
- Ethereal Absolution
- Always Watching
- Mindwrack Demon
- I'd go down to singles of all the legendary creatures, if you add Diabolic Intent or Diabolic Tutor
You'll want some way to deal with artifacts and enchantments, possibly Seal of Cleansing in the sideboard.
Also you don't have exile-versions of removal, but white and black are good for it, if you wanted to give up some of the "sacrifice for insane value" plan. Utter End and its variants.

First of all, I agree with everything everyone else has already said above, lol. I'm especially glad to see somebody mention Quinton Hoover, Rebecca Guay, and the new Seb McKinnon art on Bankrupt in Blood . I also was a big fan of Richard Kane Ferguson, Ron Spencer and Jeff Miracola, back in the day, too.

Mardu Heart-Piercer by Karl Kopinski is my absolute favorite.
TL;DR - my full thoughts on the piece. Mostly copied from a forum a few years back.
Mongolian aesthetic, armor and weaponry, and culture has always caught my eye, so it makes sense why this piece would stand out to me.
I love the decision to paint a female rider. Goes well with the Mardu theme, and taking one look at the rider tells you without a doubt that she's an experienced warrior, rider, and archer.
Kopinski's painting style is one of my favorites; the way he shows extreme detail while also holding a loose, unfinished feel really defines what a great painting is for me.
Kopinski's color pallet is extremely pleasing, simultaneously expressing warmth and action with oranges, browns and reds. The way the shiny silver and gold contrasts the earthy tones is great, and the way the ground blends into the sky at the horizon is masterfully done in a way that you don't realize it's happening at first.
The way Kopinski tilts the horizon adds such speed and motion to the piece. It gives you a disorienting feeling, as being in a battle riding a horse would. The way the armor, clothing, and hair are flap around in the wind and the riding motion of the horse add to this effect.
The contradicting directions of the horse and the rider fascinate me as well. The horse pulls you to the left, while the rider pulls you up and then to the right, and the horizon lines up with both, forcing you to examine the piece as a whole to really understand what's going on, then allowing you to look again and appreciate the separate parts.
I love the contrast between the horse and it's riders faces. The horse looks terrified, like this is it's first battle, but is still obeying it's rider faithfully. The Warrior on the other hand, is the definition of poise and serenity in battle. Calmly taking aim at an enemy, zero expression on her face as she's about to let fly and snuff out a life. Cold but understandable.
That makes me thing of how this piece would fit into a larger battle scene. Notice how there's no one else pictured. The horse seems to be going away from the battle on the right, where the archer is aiming. It's almost as if the experienced warrior knows her inexperienced horse couldn't handle the thick of the action, so has instead chosen to circle the battle and use her prowess with her bow to use her new horse most effectively.
I could rave all day about this work. Thank you magic Man Sam for featuring this in your video :)
I also really like Unfulfilled Desires by D. Alexander Gregory.
