Why Blood Artist over Zulaport Cutthroat? Cutthroat gets around effects like Leyline of Sanctity and Shalai, Voice of Plenty which, while rare, do exist. It also requires fewer iterations of the Narcomoeba loop to kill a table and, probably most importantly, has one power, meaning it can draw you a card with Tymna. You miss out on triggers when your opponents' creatures die, but that only seems relevant in the mirror (though maybe that's the deciding factor).

Just playtested a couple hands and I got Demon of Death's Gate a few Carrier Thrall...that's a powerful play! Sac those and put out a huge creature and still get tokens afterwards. If you had a Blood Artist out too that's a 6 point life swing on top of it. Fun stuff.

I also run an Alesha combo deck and I am seeing quite a few infinite combos. Might I suggest Behind the Scenes or Reconnaissance for some protection and even getting master of cruelties through unblocked?

I also personally didn’t take the doubling etb effects route as the infinite combines don’t care if you double the effects or not. I really like Blood Artist for redundancy in infite sacrificing loops. Either way I like the deck tbgat can just win out of nowhere. I really like Dark Ritual for some surprise wins.

Have you considered Zulaport Cutthroat over Blood Artist? Zulaport hits each opponent instead of one, unless there's a reason you target one opponent, I usually play him over Blood Artist.

for real i am confused why people choose Blood Artist over Zulaport Cutthroat. is it because it has more life-gain potential through draining each person individually? Is it because Artist can target self? Don't they garner retaliation from one opponent but zulport is neutral. plz help. is plus 1 attack and no targeting and deal more damage not strictly better?

Have you thought about adding Viscera Seer? It would work well with Blood Artist and Kalastria. It would also help you if you have Vampire Nocturnus out with a land on top of your deck.
