Blight Keeper Discussion

There are a number of cards that I would like to suggest, but it will involve moving from aggro to control. With a bit more creature kill, Dead Man's Chest would certainly add value. Thief of Sanity over Hostage Taker gives a permanent exile to play rather than until this card leaves the battlefied. Bladebrand can come in to get rid of a big blocker.

I think that I would want to replace Blight Keeper and Storm Fleet Aerialist with Aether Tunnel , Dead Man's Chest , Bladebrand or Cast Down , but doing so would change the focus of the deck toward / control.

You could splash black for more removal and control resistance. Walk the Plank , Cast Down , Duress , Kitesail Freebooter , Fungal Infection , Theater of Horrors , and maybe Footlight Fiend , Dusk Legion Zealot , Vicious Conquistador , Drill Bit , Gruesome Fate , Blight Keeper , and Fire Shrine Keeper

Also, I would possibly trade out Goblin Gathering for some silver bullet like Sorcerous Spyglass unless Gathering has been

P.S. Sorry for such an extensive comment, just wanted to show you a bunch of options. I am in no way suggesting ALL of these cards together.

So I took your idea and messed with it, going with the discard and drain theme. The main win conditions are Raiders' Wake and Fell Specter, since they are repeatable sources of damage from discard. With that in mind, here's how I reworked the deck. I included a lot more removal and almost no single off drain gain aside from Blight Keeper to trigger Raiders' Wake. You by no means need to include everything that I included, but these are just some ideas.

Nermnt and FlabbyGabby I had considered going a splash of white, But I wasn't sure if I should just make the second deck Splashy from the beginning and play them both. For this deck, I based it all on Epicure of Blood magnifying the rest of the draining. with that in mind, I actually came across Exquisite Blood, which I have picked up two of for this deck. It is remarkably good in this deck as just a default addition, But If Epicure of Blood + Exquisite Blood work as I think they do, then practically my entire deck becomes a trigger for an infinite loop that would drain all the life from all opponents. Any direct combat damage, life Link Child of Night or Rush of Vitality Would set it off. Triggered abilities From; Vampire Sovereign, Vampire Neonate, Night Market Lookout, Blight Keeper, Bloodhunter Bat, Skymarch Bloodletter, Tattered Mummy, Vicious Conquistador, and Liliana, the Necromancer too. Lastly, any of my draining spells like Sovereign's Bite, Essence Extraction, and Lich's Caress ALL start an infinite drain.

How about a splash? You could play thing like Drana's Emissary

I would kick Blight Keeper and Bloodhunter Bat for Night Market Lookout

pao2 Your general goal is to win within the first 5 turns, so I wouldn't recommend going too deep on the wraths. This deck has potential to grind out with evasive creatures and constant stream of draw via Yuriko, but I wouldn't actively want to play Wraths. You could consider Snuff Out if you wanted, though (high CMC for flip, 0-cost to tempo), and Murderous Cut (though I'd be careful of overloading delve spells).

Krom3 Slither Blade is one of those cards I just assumed I added to the deck and never actually added; thanks for the heads-up. You're spot-on with Blight Keeper being the weakest dork in the deck, so easy swap.

Hi there, Liking the deck list so far but I notice you dont have a Slither Blade I could easily see Blight Keeper being replaced by it unless Blight Keeper is in for a specific reason? +1

I'm not sure if Tainted Remedy with Beacon of Immortality works.

There is a strict difference between "gaining" life (additional +X life is added) and "doubling" your life total (life total x 2)

Similarly to how declaring an attacker is different from a creature entering AND attacking, or how a player who "loses" life is different from something that "deals damage".

For example, if something says "prevent all damage dealt this turn" but you sac Blight Keeper, no damage was dealt to be prevented.

Wording is very particular in certain cases. This may be one of them.
