Blood Tithe Discussion

king-saproling on Sidisi, lands kinda matter?

You might consider these for speeding up the deck: Lotus Petal , Fellwar Stone , Blood Pet .

Mirror of Fate could be neat here. It lets you reuse cards exiled by Yawgmoth's Will. You can even recur the Mirror itself this way. There is a wombo combo here alongside Will + Bolas's Citadel + Tendrils of Agony . Not that you need another combo haha. But it could be fun to switch things up if you get tired of Glacial + Dreams, or wanna keep your opponents on their toes.

These cards seem like they might have a home here or in a similar build: Necropotence , Soul Spike , Spinning Darkness , Blood Tithe , Sorin's Vengeance , Sovereign's Bite , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Skirge Familiar

Thanks for the suggestions! I thought about it more, and did end up removing Consume Spirit . Thanks for the advice; I was holding onto it because it can target either a player or a creature, and as a bonus it gave me life. Still, it could potentially end up being more expensive than Mortify and Blood Tithe combined if thats what i'm going for. As for Suture Priest , she did have me thinking for a bit; but I don't think i'll be adding her. I built this as a theme deck centered around vampires; you'll notice every card in the deck talks about vampires or Sorin in some way, and she doesn't fit in in that regard. Another equally big reason is that I have cards like Malakir Bloodwitch and Feast of Blood . While there are only a couple of cards like that; adding in a card that is isolated in such a way can hurt the strat; especially in a 60 card deck. I will be adding Blood Seeker though, he'd be a very fun addition :) I just have to figure out where to place him, this deck is struggling a bit to get down to 60 cards :3

Yesterday on Wanderer and paying life

6 months ago

Nope.

You can lose life a number of ways, including being dealt damage, paying life, and cards that straight-up say you lose life (like Blood Tithe ). The Wanderer only stops you from being dealt some damage, but the cards you listed above don't deal damage.

If you controlled a Platinum Emperion then you wouldn't lose life from an opponent activating abilities that cause you to lose life, and you'd be unable to pay life.

Blood Tithe seems bulky and slow especially with no creatures to protect your life total. And it's not really on flavor, but Arterial Flow is a powerhouse in multiplayer.

Wonderful tips, thank you!

Exquisite Blood is indeed on my list for pickup at some point, but I appreciate you pointing it out.

Words of Worship is a card I was unaware of, and will be picking it up to include it and give it a try.

As for cards currently in my collection; Martial Coup, Phyrexian Reclamation, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded will likely find spots now.

I will be looking to snag a few of the others listed I do not currently own.

Glad to hear you feel that way in regards to Blood Tithe and Remorseless Punishment. They felt like underwhelming additions, even if they were (sort of) in theme.

Exquisite Blood is an infinite combo with several of the cards in your deck (Sanguine Bond, Cliffhaven Vampire, ...). It's kinda expensive, but even if you don't want to pick up a copy, you should know about it so you know why if everyone tries to destroy your Sanguine Bond.

Words of Worship is a rather bizarre old card (there's a whole cycle) that lets you pay {1} to gain 5 life instead of drawing a card. In most circumstances, that's a bad trade, even in a dedicated life-gain deck, but it lets you survive if you've been milled out, and sometimes you just need one more lifegain trigger. It's main use is to be super fun with things like Well of Lost Dreams ("Instead of drawing this card, I'll gain life and also draw cards!") Sadly, you don't have blue in your color identity, so you can't play Drogskol Reaver, but for redundant copies of that effect, you do get Dawn of Hope once Guilds of Ravnica releases and even Lich's Mastery if you're crazy enough. (I don't recommend Lich's Mastery in EDH - Cyclonic Rift or Bane of Progress type effects are too common.)

You may want more token produces for your soul sisters. Martial Coup seems like a good include because you can use it to make tokens or as a board wipe.

This deck could use some more ways to spend life for value. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Phyrexian Reclamation, Tymna the Weaver, Vona, Butcher of Magan, Chainer, Dementia Master Razaketh, the Foulblooded, and Necropotence all let you trade life for other resources and are mostly fairly budget. I would recommend including a few effects of that sort.

Blood Tithe and Remorseless Punishment seem low-impact in Commander: everyone starts with a lot of life so hitting everyone for 3 or one player for 10 in a non-repeatable way doesn't accomplish that much.

Yeah, I would cut Dark Ritual. In EDH the upside of ramping using spells is often diminished, unless you are playing storm. Mana rocks are a much better alternative.

Replace Terror with Terminate.

I would cut Blood Tithe for Exsanguinate. It's basically the same card, only Exsanguinate scales better into late game.

Vanquisher's Banner is a great inclusion if you are going to keep all of your one drop vampires. Heirloom Blade could be replaced by it?

I would cut Kindred Charge

Feast of Blood is underwhelming to me at sorcery speed, and you already have a bunch of single target removal. I would run a board wipe in its place, Damnation or Black Sun's Zenith.

Urge to Feed is cool flavorwise, but I don't think it fits, you have better single target removal and better pump elsewhere.

Grave Peril - Isn't a "may", and is easier to play around, gives your opponent the ability to creature they want to trigger it with. Might as well be a Chainer's Edict type spell, which I don't think you need as you are flush with single target removal.

Edge of Divinity - Is good for Edgar, and is great for the cost, but he will be dying often, and there are only 2 other targets for it in the deck that get full benefit. I think there are better persistent pump options.

Don't get me started on your Ajani bromance....
