Blade of the Bloodchief Discussion

Forkbeard on Olivia Voldaren: Twi-Hard With a Vengeance

Love the idea of Dark Depths in here, the Thespian's Stage combo is also pretty funny. If I ever get my hands on a copy of DD I'll definitely slot it in.

The sword cycle is great, but I hadn't really intended this to be a voltron deck (I have 3 other voltron decks, 1 of which includes all 5 swords). Basilisk Collar turns Olivia into a removal machine, Quietus Spike has theme/flavour and Blade of the Bloodchief + the boots are in here for obvious reasons. That said, I would consider 1 or 2 of the swords in place of a couple of non-theme good stuff cards I have in here such as No Mercy or Painful Quandary.

Interesting food for thought, cheers CaptSillva.

Yup: Verdant Catacombs, Kalastria Highborn, 2x Blade of the Bloodchief and 2x Bloodghast, plus everything else for 9,90. That made me an happy child C:

Blade of the Bloodchief to get your creatures rolling with power and toughness

Splashing Red could really help pump up this deck. Olivia Voldaren, Stromkirk Noble, Stromkirk Captain, Terminate, and Dreadbore become options then. The Red based vampires work well with Blade of the Bloodchief because they constantly grow, one that works the best is Havengul Vampire.

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of cards. I'd take a look at Blade of the Bloodchief, Genesis Chamber, Profane Command, Lashwrithe, Indulgent Aristocrat/Bloodthrone Vampire, Dark Prophecy, Grave Pact, Yahenni, Undying Partisan Jinxed Idol and Spawning Pit and mix and match to try and get maximum value from that sweet graveyard recursion.

Good luck!

Also instead of your two artifacts, have you considered Blade of the Bloodchief?

I mean, it'll probably push the curve a little high honestly. I'd consider a second sac outlet other than the single use Plunge into Darkness (as much as I am in love with the card with Sanguine Bond/Vizkopa Guildmage ftw), as bloodghast/crawler is super strong- Blade of the Bloodchief/Indulgent Aristocrat works, as does Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I'd run Dark Prophecy over tesya for advantage, but thats personal preference. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of useful black cards if you want to look through.

Skullclamp is really a must in this sort of deck as the draw power you can get from it if you have enough sac outlets is phenomenal. Blade of the Bloodchief is then you pump engine. Unfortunately some of the best sac beneficiaries are in black and white.
