I always liked Blood Tribute

With the life gain and life play things I always like to add Exquisite Blood for the infinite combo with Sanguine Bond also consider Blood Tribute to take out a player with an even number of life.

cebel3 on How To Gain Life And Execute People

I know I commented on this like less than an hour ago but a few more things just popped in my head that may help out your deck. Check out Alhammarret's Archive not only does it double your life gain but you double draw outside your draw step. Also possibly check out Cliffhaven Vampire so you can double dip on your pings form things like Blood Artist and Drana's Emissary and a few other things in your deck like Blood Tribute. I would also look into getting Vedalken Orrery so you can use pseudo-haste on most of your creatures (summing them on your opponents end step) as well as adding Swiftfoot Boots or Lightning Greaves so you can use Tree of Perdition right when he drops or swing right away when you drop Sun Titan or Serra Avatar.

Not a fan of Haunted Cloak, it's somewhat narrow but might like to see a card like Rhox Faithmender in here (by itself reduces Licia cost by a minimum of two, potentiall getting her down to WBR easily) I feel similarly about Prowler's Helm, although its effect might be more easily replaced with the more standard Whispersilk Cloak.

If you've found Killing Wave to be great, awesome, but in my head in the commander format I'm just not sure I can wrap around it, it wipes out token swarms but doesn't take out critical creatures that need to be removed unless you're somehow representing lethal with it ?

Cards in general that might be good: Blood Tribute, Grasp of Fate, Recumbent Bliss (pacifism and gain one life every turn seems nice), Death Grasp is expensive but I personally like it as targeted removal and also lifegain synergy. Lategame could even become player removal if you've lowered life totals enough.

Enral on Your Pain is My Gain: My Gain is Your Pain

Gottsplitter: Hey...thanks for the feedback and suggestions. I've actually dabbled on/included the cards you've suggested at one point but decided to not include them due to my deck direction (casual big mana life-drain). Most of my decks are around 75% so I'm hoping to make this more casual on a higher curve with pet cards (that I usually don't play in 75% decks) like Rise of the Dark Realms and Blood Tribute.

  • Oversold Cemetery: The problem I see with this card is that I want instant speed access to my gy to perform a bunch of shenanigan that same turn. This card essentially does nothing the turn it comes in and I have to wait a turn for it to get a creature back to my hand. Cards like Haunted Crossroads might be suboptimal at first but it does synergize with Grim Haruspex to allow me to recur my creatures multiple times a turn.

  • Ranger of Eos: I don't run too many 1 drops to warrant the inclusion...I do run Recruiter of the Guard which is fantastic.

  • Necrotic Sliver: Not really a fan of having to spend 3 mana and it's hard to reuse multiple times a turn. For me, it's all about ETB/LTB abusable value.

brandonsperry25 on Honey, why is there a pot roast inside the candle?

Just to play devil's advocate: I think both Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless could be looked at in a negative light early game though. If you have six mana on the board you're talking about a minimum of 4 life lost and gained if its 1v1. While Blood Tribute can be 20 if there hasn't been any damage dealt out (possibly more or less depending on the situation of course).

It definitely depends on the situation and your meta. And, if you are not running the combo or you are playing multiple opponents, I think it makes more sense to go with your first two options.

I second Blood Tribute and suggest Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood for flavor purposes. Run these in my Edgar deck as well.

Hope they help!
