Blood Clock Discussion

My first thought was Magmatic Force and Havoc Festival to draw a card every turn. but neither work because your commander identifies as blue and black.

I did a gatherer search for black and blue cards that deal damage during each upkeep, and the results are interesting: Most of them dealt with hand size.

There are only 2 unconditional damage artifacts:

And there were two other outliers:

Twinflame is nice for either cheaply reusing the ETB effect of a costlier creature, or looping it with Anarchist + striving it to continually reuse an ETB effect. Priest of Urabrask + Cloudstone Curio + anything that reduces the priest's cost (Ruby Medallion) or doubles its effect (Panharmonicon) nets you extra mana and extra triggers on things like Impact Tremors. The Priest can even provide infinite mana in the right setup.

Embermaw Hellion makes your enchantments hit harder. Fractured Loyalty on second glance is too situational here since you don't have that many effects that target things. Umbilicus and Blood Clock are not stars by any means, but they do allow you to reuse ETB creatures. Indomitable Creativity seems great if you have a lot of tokens out, and can act as removal as well.

Just thought of a few more that might interest you: Commune with Lava , Flameshadow Conjuring , Minion Reflector , Feldon of the Third Path , Sandstone Oracle , Skirk Prospector

king-saproling Great suggestions!

I haven't tested out Sculpting Steel or Grinning Ignus , but I'm interested in it - looks like they could make the cut but I want to see how they do! I'll test them out.

I don't think I have quite enough flicker effects to make Priest of Urabrask , Anarchist , Meteor Golem , or Knollspine Dragon worth it. The latter 3 are also pretty expensive, how have they performed for you?

In what situations do you usually use Twinflame ? With our eternal struggle for card advantage, I'm not sure if it would be worth the draw usually.

I'm not sure quite how synergistic Embermaw Hellion , Fractured Loyalty , Umbilicus , Indomitable Creativity , or Blood Clock are. Maybe I'm missing it - have any of them been stars for you?

Came across a couple of cards and would like to know what others think of them and whether or not they should have a place here.

The effect is relevant given we want return effects, however it give our opponents the choice of what they return so they can also reuse ETB effects. On the other hand the cards tick life away if they choose not to return something.

It's been quite a journey in hunting the cards for the deck. I think it is now near the top of its game. The only other thing is to test Blood Clock .
