Bloodbond March Discussion
2 weeks ago
Four activations mills the opponent for 48 cards. It doesn't take modern decks long to go through the remaining 12 cards, especially if 7 were in the opening hand, and 2 were pulled out by fetchlands, and they drew a card every turn.
About 16 advisors on the battlefield wins instantly. You can with with 8 on the battlefield, if you Rally the Ancestors at the opponent's end step, you can use them, untap and use them again in response to the exile trigger. Similar with Bloodbond March , use their ability, sacrifice them, then play a 9th to get them all back untapped.

The idea started with gagging the power level of what a Persistent Petitioners should be. My play group largely consists of mostly highly tuned deck with power level around 8, so I want to build a deck that is able to survive and thrive in my group. But clearly a mill strategy is not that strong in EDH, so I went with a group hug mill route and play the politics. Since the difference in power at the beginning is so big, most players won't pay much attention to you. Plus mass card drawn is the most successful feel good strategy for group hug and with enchantments discouraging other player from targeting you and card draw in some way is just another to mill your opponents and with adviser mill to carry the deck in the final stretch of the race everything starting to take shape and form the basis of this deck. After play testing I realize I don’t need that many Persistent Petitioners because the best way to use petitioners is to hold it in your hand until in the last stretch when you see a opening or disrupt a player’s win con that has to do with the library therefore no need to cards like Bloodbond March , Wood Sage , Thrumming Stone etc. Instead I added counterspells for other’s win con disruption and my own jinky combo like Mindcrank Duskmantle Guildmage and Phyrexian Unlife Solemnity to increase my win percentage if I get to the final 1v1. This deck is ablt to get second play fairly consistantly and from time to time that mill strategy does work if game is longe. Overall I'm happy with what I got here and by sharing with the community helping ti get more feedback to improve and learn. Please work together and try to build the perfect Persistent Petitioners deck.

How about Bloodbond March with lots of Shadowborn Apostle ? Maybe adding in Aetherflux Reservoir , Bontu's Monument and Krav, the Unredeemed ? Your commander could be Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord to throw the fat krav into opposing faces.

This doesn't seem like a bad idea: using something to instantly create a bunch of Advisors.
Since the "tap four" ability can be used the turn it comes into play, you can focus on putting a whole bunch on the battlefield at once. Rally the Ancestors , Immortal Servitude , and Bloodbond March come to mind as ways to return all of your critters from your graveyard to the battlefield.

Here's a list of recommendations that I am going to test out:
First Category: Actually good cards
Second Category: Funny cards

Personally I was going to go Esper to have access to cards like Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts and GAAIV. However, sultai does seem EXTREMELY strong for pertitioners.
Not sure how anyone feels about this, but what about 4 color? We could run Atraxa, Praetors' Voice as commander. Although, it would probably be wiser to run a partner pair. I agree with everyone else here on the cards. Bloodbond March , Thrumming Stone , and Secret Salvage would all be very strong. Since this most likely will be tribal we have access to things like Harsh Mercy , Kindred Dominance , Patriarch's Bidding , etc.
I also second the idea of that EDH group.

I agree with that Sultai is probably the best color combination for a Persistent Petitioners build. You have access to Bloodbond March and as SynergyBuild mentioned Thrumming Stone as well. This pairs nicely with an Isochron Scepter / Dramatic Reversal combo. Not to mention Paradox Engine shenanigans with Cryptolith Rite or Earthcraft effects on the battlefield.
Oh and Intruder Alarm as well! That would also synergize pretty well and can lead to a lot of broken ways to mill everyone to death. Damia, Sage of Stone is great for having that constant hand refill, but also Muldrotha, the Gravetide can be a decent commander as well.
Although he is banned, Leovold, Emissary of Trest is an advisor if your going for theme and hits that sultai color as well. Hope that helps!

I've always thought that Damia, Sage of Stone could be a pretty good commander for Persistent Petitioners . You can play Bloodbond March which is an all-star for cards like this. Dumping your entire hand of petitioners and refueling back for more sounds like a dope strategy. I do think that Grand Arbiter Augustin IV who is on your list lends to a pretty brutal mill/stax list. Since he is an adviser himself, you could include various azorius advisers in addition to the petitioners. Good luck!
