Bloody Masterpiece


If a creature dying would trigger abilities, those abilities trigger an additional time.

Sacrifice ~: Create 3 treasure tokens. You lose three life.

Blood Artist finally finished his painting, huh? Make a Sphinx that offers a choice upon entering the battlefield.

Damn, that Meren artwork xd I like your deck a lot. It's like a sturdier version of a normal 60 card deck i have. Maybe including one or 2 cards like Blood Artist would be effective, but i guess they don't fit your gameplan 100% ^^

KuzcosPoison on Orah Aristocrats Combo

Looks like a cool deck, Orah seems like the commander clerics has been looking for for a long time. Combos are interesting, would suggest leaning into a couple of the more concise ones while cutting out any cards that would be dead outside of them like Shuriken. Also your lifegain combos become much more deadly with a Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose so would recommend those along with a Blood Artist type effect or two. Celestial Gatekeeper seems like an odd choice, not sure if it's worth. If you want the body then Butcher is very good but I find that Martyr's Bond does a lot of work for aristocrats. Also Burnt Offering is fun ramp but Culling the Weak might be better value since there's not a ton of creatures above 5 mana in there. This is definitely a meta call too but with undying combos and Mikeaus in there, a Solemnity might be worth along with some light lifegain tax like Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Anyway, hope that helps

Condemned + Ghast + Visitor is a decent lineup but sometimes you won't have a desired card to discard. I probably wouldn't use him as an engine but he does partner well with visitor. Cordial has definite uses but he's more built for aggressive builds with a lot of 1 mana creatures, or an aristocrats type engine with things like Kalastria Highborn, Viscera Seer, Bloodghast, Blood Artist and Sorin's second +1.

I'd also keep Fatal Push at 4, it's just that good, and consider Indulgent Aristocrat if you want another 1-drop plus Gifted Aetherborn. Very strong turn 2 creature.

What you could use is have 4 Blood Artist and switch to a more combo heavy deck. If you want to keep them. I bet Dark Confidant would be great in the deck if you went that route. It could also take the place Cryptbreaker. Zulaport Cutthroat Cavan help as well

I like the deck but what are the fetches there for? There’s only black. And why Yixlid Jailer it turns off your own cards, why not Leyline of the Void for only Graveyard hate for your opponent? I don’t know if Blood Artist is the best fit, since you are a more aggressive deck with a combo finish. How does this deck use Cryptbreaker? just for the tap& draw? Because you don’t have much reanimation to reliably discard.

Also, off topic but the link didn’t work, if you are able can you resend it?

RedBullMan2, yes, Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat, along with other classic Aristocrat bombs like Falkenrath Noble would fit the deck very well, but I am keeping it strictly Cleric Tribal, at least for now.

Thanks for you interest in the deck!
