Any reason you're not running Blood Artist / Disciple of the Vault?

Add a Sculpting Steel, Blood Artist and a Disciple of the Vault. Then you win. Also, your deck could really use a Fabricate.

Hi, I found your list through reddit and just wanted to stop by and give you your +1. I used your list to criticize my own Karador list here: Miracle Max and just recently added the Boonweaver combo.

I was thinking of adding Blood Artist (to set up the additional combo of Saffi Eriksdotter and Loyal Retainers to my list and your input would be appreciated.

Great to see some other people toying around with Melira, Sylvok Outcast Combo and Collected Company.


I have an Abzan Company list, Collected Congregation, and I've been pretty pleased with Loxodon Smiter. He's amazing main-board hate for Liliana of the Veil and he really punishes all of your opponents for leaving up Mana Leak on turn 2. I see that you're trying to stay , but since you already have Birds of Paradise, the opportunity cost of adding a shockland or two seems relatively low. If you're looking to stay in-color, you could also try Strangleroot Geist - while he doesn't gain you any life, he does often trade twice in combat. Some other options include Pharika, God of Affliction (I'm not sure how often you'd have devotion, but she is incidental grave hate), Leatherback Baloth, Groundbreaker and Talara's Battalion (though I have some reservations as to whether you would be able to reliably get this into play without a Company). Finally, have you considered trying Blood Artist in place of Murderous Redcap? It is lower on the curve, seems well positioned in a format full of burn, and can be put into play from a Collected Company. I certainly respect the merits of Redcap, and there are some situations where I would rather have Redcap over Blood Artist, but it may be worth a shot. Good luck!

I'm finding that Cartel Aristocrat is good against burn, and that Fiend Hunter can stave off big threats as you can Chord for it, on trigger sac it, and permanently exile a large threat (like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn on turn 3 as a worst case scenario).

These recommendations are strictly one-ofs in the 75.

Voice of Resurgence proooobably should be here somewhere but if you're running well... eh.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for being sane and running Blood Artist +1 for that.

I really like the deck idea! +1. But Plunge into Darkness and Viscera Seer are both better than Deranged Outcast and Ravenous Demon  Flip, and Blood Artist is better than Unruly Mob. Also I think you should thin green completely.
