Blood Pet Discussion

bushido_man96 on Seven by Nine with Meren

2 weeks ago

1 CMC saccers: Blisterpod, Blood Pet I can't think of any 2 CMC saccers.

Sac outlets: Infernal Tribute, Claws of Gix, Phyrexian Altar.

I like the look of it. I've got a Meren build that I've kept tinkering with too. I've not heard of this "seven by nine" build, but I will look into it. Thanks for sharing!

Clay_Puppington on Grenzo ft. DJ Doomsday | Competitive Primer

Lions' Eye Diamond is a powerhouse, in the same way any rocks are a powerhouse with Grenzo DD.

We don't cast DD with it, but we crack it in response to a successful DD cast. If DD is resolved, we're already all in. What LED does, however, is for 0 to ensure we can count it against our required land to plug DD. With something like Chrome Mox, or Mox Diamond, etc, we need BBB + both of those rocks to hit our threshold.

With LED, we can ensure we hit that threshold for using Grenzo's ability for 0. With LED, we need: BBB+LED. With almost any other rock/mana source (outside of the double taps like Crypt/Sol), we need BBB+Rock/Rock, or BBB+B(for ritual, etc). This means that we end up needing to cast more things.

Sure, the loss of the hand is regrettable, and we'd always prefer to keep that hand, but LED is another 0 drop to keep us firing on what we do best - win the race to go off. Without it, we just end up needing more cards/ramp/ritual that slow us down or affect our opening hand more. LED is probably one of the best rocks inside of a DD deck simply due to that - it ensures you only need to cast 1 rock to go off, not 2.

Victimize acts a a final backup for the KIZC pile, and while ending in a position that you need to wait a full turn to cast it probably means life is over for you, it does give you that sliver after a failed DD. Reanimate is certainly something you could consider in it's place. If you do, please let me know how it handles, especially after double removal.

Cards that are currently likely to be cut, as per my testing log if you're looking for cuts to add in a reanimate package:

Mox Opal - just not enough rocks to trigger threshold to get use out of it. SSG or Blood Pet are likely additions to add the necessary coloured mana pooling.

Viscera Seer - Too many redundant sac outlets. Likely adding Diabolic Intent.

In that case, what do you think of Scuttling Doom Engine , Anvil of Bogardan , Necromancy , Culling the Weak , maybe even a Blood Pet , Hecatomb , Priest of Gix , Laquatus's Champion , Silent Arbiter , always thought Tortured Existence was a cool card, but I'm not sure if it'd make sense in this deck, something to consider at least.

_cheatyface_ on MagicalHacker - Sidisi, Undead Vizier

Mana Vault on T1 lets you cast Sidisi on T2.

With Grim Monolith, Soldevi Adnate, Basal Thrull on T2 you can cast Sidisi T3.

Worn Powerstone, Basalt Monolith, Jet Medallion, Blood Pet, Blood Vassal still lets you cast Sidisi T4 + Medallion makes further spells cheaper, too.

Mox Jet - obvious but you most likely won't get one cheap.

...can't think of any more accelerations right now, hope you find some usefull!

If you are going wide Cryptolith Rite, and Elder of Laurels for green. I used to use Pawn of Ulamog and Blood Pet with Decaying Soil to trigger infinite deaths. Deathgreeterand cards that trigger on death like Extractor Demon are good. If you went that route, milling with Altar of the Brood and cards like Animate Dead that let you take from their grave. Great sacrifice fodder: Nether Traitor and Reassembling Skeleton.

I'm not sure it will work either SmokeyBear15, but I enjoy testing new effects. It is unfortunate that the sacrifice clause prevents me from using it every turn, and at the very least it's made me reconsider adding Blood Pet.

So, I think these cards are quite weak, Blood Pet, Phyrexian Revoker. Tidehollow Sculler, Debt to the Deathless. Any special reason you are running these?

I think you will be much better of with tome of the cards in your sideboard/maybeboard.

In Commander, there are in fact more than two black thrulls. There's Armor Thrull (one of my favorites), Necrite & Mindstab Thrull, Blood Pet, Basal Thrull & Blood Vassal, Exhumer Thrull, Thrull Champion, Thrull Parasite, Thrull Surgeon & Thrull Wizard... and that's pretty much all the good ones in mono-black.

The best thrulls are WB, such as Mourning Thrull, Kingpin's Pet and Treasury Thrull (which kinda sucks, anyway), but then you wouldn't be able to keep Endrek as your Commander if you went .

Also, don't forget to check out cards like Breeding Pit, Ebon Praetor, Orzhov Keyrune, Sarpadian Empires, Vol. VII, Soul Exchange (awesome card), Thrull Retainer & Tourach's Gate.

I love thrulls, btw. =)
