Blood Artist Discussion

The thing is that there are so many combos available in EDH that you need to maybe specify some colors for what you want to do. I really only listed locks in my earlier comment. For normal combos there are about 20 or so involving Ghave, Guru of Spores and different combinations of counter producers and mana producers. Add in one of the three soul sisters and you have infinite life, add in Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat and you have infinite damage. Grave Pact turns the Ghave combos into single sided board wipes so I guess that could be considered a lock.

the secondary ability is not why you run Blood Baron of Vizkopa. a 4/4 against a deck that can't remove it (Ultimate Price, Anguished Unmaking, Path to Exile, Terminate, Dismember, Tragic Slip, etc. fail to remove it, let alone all the removal that doesn't do enough to remove it. usually this card has to get two for oned), can't block it, gives you life, and in this deck has first strike? that's 4 life/damage a turn or a creature they can't swing past.
I mean, its no slow 3/3 flyer that can make a token the turn after it comes down...if it lives. Bloodline Keeper Flip tends to only work in vampire ping strategies alongside Kalastria Highborn, Bloodghast and Blood Artist...though usually it gets beat out Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet which acts as pseudo batterskull/sac outlet, Vampire Nocturnus who usually provides a lethal "overrun" swing around 2/3 of the time even with this build, or even Gray Merchant of Asphodel for lethal because of the prevalence of solid B cmcs.

Well, the first thing I would ask is AEther Vial really doing that much for you with such low converted MC in the whole deck? And then Grim Haruspex might come out for Grafted Wargear just as a 3 cost for a 3 cost, giving you another sac engine. Wargear+Retribution of the Ancients+Blood Artist+Undying=creatures that don't die rather than exile...BTW, I freaking Hardened Scales as an addition. good luck bud

Just an aside on the Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat debate, yes Blood Artist tends to get you more triggers, but unless you're packing something like the aforementioned Blade he's dead board presence. Plus, the Cutthroat says "each opponent" instead of "target opponent." Not a big difference, but I have seen it become relevant against certain matchups. Maybe splitting 2 and 2 would work well.
And I really like Protean Hydra in here. I may slide it into my undying build. +1
