Blood Artist Discussion

illumfolly on Avacyn, Angel of Boardwipes

Well, here's what happened last night:

I dropped Oblivion Stone and waited for amped up equipment avacyn to attack, then I activated O-stone and in response, the split-second sudden spoiling. No more equipment, no more avacyn, no more angels. I definitely see how this is an edge case and how it takes maneuvering for someone to set that kind of thing up, but Witchbane Orb effects also get rid of those pesky Blood Artist effects and targetted discard.

Deck looks great, keep it up

In that case some good cards that r cheap to consider are: Blood Artist, Bloodgift Demon, Deathbringer Thoctar, Deathgreeter, Disciple of Bolas, Grim Haruspex, Pyreheart Wolf, Mind Unbound, and Whip of Erebos is a good card if your at really low life, im not saying you should have all of these in the deck, they are just some cheap cards that could benefit your deck, I hope this helps, have fun.

@ebonzekken i recommend Blood Artist as it triggers of anything on the field dying, ive played both (my first real deck was a vamp deck, still have it) and blood artist wins out every time, i have won a couple times because an opponent decided to kill too many creatures at once, or having sac outlets. Also it dosnt require you to keep any mana available.

another thing i would recomend is to add some more removal, and to add some sac outlets like Viscera Seer especially if you add some blood artists.

I am already playing four Vampire Nighthawk but thank you for the suggestion. I thought that Kalastria Highborn would work why would Blood Artist be better?

Have you looked at Blood Artist or Vampire Nighthawk? Both would be beneficial I think

Atmosbear on Prossh's Infinite Meal Plan

There are a few.

1st Prossh and Food Chain is an infinite combo, getting you infinite 0/1 kolbolds and mana to cast creatures but unless you want to wait a turn to swing(which is very dangerous for you) in you actually need an extra card to enable insta kill like etb damage from Purphoros, God of the Forge or life loss from Blood Artist there are a lot of cards in the deck to support that.

2nd Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar and Prossh go infinite in the same way as Food Chain but allowing you to cast more than just creature cards with the mana produced.

3rd Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Zealous Conscripts, an old combo but a good one to create infinite hasty tokens. Searchable with Tooth and Nail.

4th Earthcraft and Squirrel Nest, for infinite 1/1 squirrel tokens.

5th Nath of the Gilt-Leaf and Sadistic Hypnotist will empty all opponents hands and give you 1/1 elf tokens. Though it only goes as far as your opponents hand is large.

Other cards in the deck support you going infinite or just having a ton of tokens, Butcher of Malakir and Grave Pact clear enemy board of creatures.

Fecundity can draw you a LOT of cards.

Craterhoof Behemoth can get you all the swing damage.

And if all else fails just one shot them with commander damage the turn you play Prossh using Xenagos, God of Revels after eating the 6 base tokens you entered with and swinging for 22 commander.
