Blood Artist Discussion

Snowmen1 on Greedy humans

Its a smart build, I love it, but I think some cards may be too may want cards l like more sorins, and you may want Hero of Bladehold. Also, you may want Blood Artist over Falkenrath Noble. Love the deck.

BlurrySC on undying sacrifice

You're better off adding green for Young Wolf and Strangleroot Geist, these are much better than Butcher Ghoul and Sightless Ghoul. Of course, this will make the mana base far more expensive. In just black, some other cards to consider are Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat, Viscera Seer, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Grim Haruspex.

BlurrySC on Liliana/Golgari Sacrifice Deck

Bloodflow Connoisseur is probably better than Rot Shambler as it acts as its own sacrifice outlet. Maybe run both? I think you would need to try both out and see which one works better. Other cards to look at are Viscera Seer, Nantuko Husk, Blasting Station. Might also want to consider adding Blood Artist and Grim Haruspex for extra value.

DRmagic2017 on Karlov of the Ghost Council Lifegain

Hello! I've got some ideas about your deck. As I understand your tactics is to gain life each turn in order to activate Karlov's ability. In this case you don't need cards like Herald of War - she doesn't have anything connected with life-gain theme.
You have Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim. So why should you just sacrifice your creatures to activate her abilities without any other effect? Let's get more profit by adding Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist or Falkenrath Noble. Then I'd recommend to add Felidar Sovereign as a wincon. Ajani's Pridemate is another useful card for a life-gain deck - it gets counters almost each turn. Serra Ascendant is also extremely powerful. Tymna the Weaver helps with card advantage.
Then artifacts. Whip of Erebos - without a doubt. Loxodon Warhammer - this is a classic card. Eternity Vessel - I think you can get some profit from it. Venser's Journal - it's very useful with Necropotence: unlimited draw engine, no maximum hand size and you gain life each turn. Not sure about your Armillary Sphere - Burnished Hart seems better. Filigree Familiar also looks interesting: life-gain + card advantage. And probably Elixir of Immortality?
I hope my ideas were useful. Good luck and have fun!

Wie wre es mit Blood Artist?

Azdranax on * needs help Mikaeus EDH*

4 days ago

Here are several suggestions, both zombie specific and Mikaeus specific: Balthor the Defiled to reanimate all of your dead zombies; Liliana, Death's Majesty to make them, reanimate them, and/or board wipe everything but them; Triskelion to create an endless undying loop to combo kill your opponents; Door of Destinies for zombie mass pump; Stoneforge Masterwork for zombie solo pump; Gravecrawler and Phyrexian Altar with Vengeful Dead in play creates an endless sacrifice loop to drain all your opponents (maybe even add Blood Artist or Bontu's Monument for an additional combo opportunity); Death Baron because larger zombies with deathtouch are better; and Dread Summons for a load of zombie tokens to overrun your opponents. That should be a good start.

Nice deck but you're definitely missing some key cards here. Try including Attrition, Vampiric Rites, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Blood Artist, Grim Haruspex, Zulaport Cutthroat and Deathgreeter.

Izu_Korasu on Liliana vs Kothoped as commander

6 days ago

in my playgroup, there USED TO BE a Kothophed deck (now its a Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck) the problem is that the life loss actually becomes a huge problem (boardwipe? okay ill lose 15, draw 15 ... um)

there are ways to mitigate this loss (like Blood Artist) but most mono-black decks use the graveyard to their advantage, which kothophed cant really do.

liliana on the other hand can use the graveyard, and flipping her is rather easy. but she feels like more of a 99 then a commander.

Given the black cards listed, Lili feels like a better choice. BUT i would like to add Ghoulcaller Gisa, Geth, Lord of the Vault and Sidisi, Undead Vizier for consideration.
