Blood Seeker Discussion

Fleetwood-Mat on What are some cheap creatures ...

Leonin Arbiter is a great modern card and can be used to great effect in combination with other modern control staples like Ghost Quarter and Path to Exile; also hoses fetches. Ajani's Pridemate better as a grower, need to have lifegain to make him good though. Rancor also could be a card worth considering, although it's not a creature, it's got super value at a green, gives trample to get past chump blockers. And we get down to probably the best 1 drop grower in those colours; Serra Ascendant... could take some time to get big without some help though, but curves into pridemate nicely. Another good 2 drop that doesn't need to swing to be good and deadly is Suture Priest, which combines the abilities of Soul Warden and Blood Seeker, which if you use, you could run a card called Mercy Killing, hope some of this can help.

It's hard to evaluate Dowsing Dagger at first glance since it does a variety of things. However we can compare it to existing cards to decide if it's good. Forbidden Orchard deals 2b to 4b damage for negative mana (b=number of Blood Seekers). Hunted Phantasm deals 5b+4t (t=turns) for 3 mana. Since Dagger creates two tokens and deals 2 damage/turn half the time (0 half the time since you need Phantasm), we can say it deals 2b+t damage for 4 mana. That's a 3-6 damage spell for 4 mana. Might as well play any burn spell. Basically any other equipment also seems better. The other two are twice as good for cheaper.

That's why I play so many cantrips, because some combo pieces (like Phantasm and Orchard) are overwhelmingly better than others.

This idea is a good one. I like the use of a Pendelhaven to boost the Blood Seeker. Its a great idea.

Guile for the Sonic Boom Combo.

Overwhelming Splendor to clip the birds wings.

If you want to delve into Black, Blood Seeker and Illness in the Ranks deal with your opponents tokens, and maybe Bitterheart Witch for the Curse.

Esper colors are easy to mana fix cheaply.

I would cut Blood Seeker and add more tokens. it feels like there's too high a chance to not draw into token cards after a few playtest.

Sounds like a great deck, I made something similar with Foul-Tongue Shriek and it's really fun to play.

4x Chainer's Edict seems like a must, over a split with mostly Diabolic.

If you move Bojuka Bog to the main, you free up some SB slots. Or, if you use Nihil Spellbomb or Relic of Progenitus, you've got a more reliable yard-killer that you don't necessary have to play early if you draw it, like you do for the Bogs.

Also: Lone Missionary is still an all-star. In this build, I might consider it over Blood Seeker.

Finally, Palace Sentinels or Thorn of the Black Rose will keep you fully stocked, and would be right at home in this deck.

Sweet brew! Cheers!

I would consider cutting a few of the bigger creatures and putting Blood Artist and Blood Seeker in. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is another easy cut, in addition to Nocturnus. Generally, though, take a second look at all your high price vampires and consider running other combo pieces that will put you over the top, like Eldrazi Monument or Cathars' Crusade.

Polupus on Modern Dagger Burn

I think Leyline of Singularity is a bad way of handling tokens. You are much better off with something like Illness in the Ranks, since leyline shuts you off of stacking Blood Seekers. Another card to look at for that effect is Suture Priest.
