Bloodchief Ascension


At the beginning of each end step, if an opponent lost 2 or more life this turn, you may put a quest counter on Bloodchief Ascension. (Damage causes loss of life.)

Whenever a card is put into an opponent's graveyard from anywhere, if Bloodchief Ascension has three or more quest counters on it, you may have that player lose 2 life. If you do, you gain 2 life.

I literally moved Purphoros last night. xD Thinking about it, I'd also be interested in your Bloodchief Ascension If there's something larger, maybe a shock/fetch you might be interested in to close that gap, I'd be a-okay with that.

I think you could honestly do away with the Archmage Ascension. Considering that you would need to have a Dictate of Kruphix on the field to even guarantee quest counters, it wouldn't be till after turn 10 that you could profit off of it. If your looking for life gain, perhaps you may consider Bloodchief Ascension, since that directly benefits from mill, although you have little to nothing to do two damage. More lands maybe instead. Can never go wrong with lands.

My deck: That Lovin' Feeling.

as an 8rack player, burn is easily my most difficult matchup, because it's the only deck that flies over me without worry. I'm trying to think of sideboard cards against it, but frankly none of them are good enough. cards suggested to me/I've discovered: Bloodchief Ascension, Golden Urn, Dragon's Claw, Sun Droplet, and Syphon Life.

any thoughts or suggestions are greatly appreciated. however it should be known that I have no intention of splashing white or blue, so please don't mention those.

Needs a Bloodchief Ascension badly. I know, I know, it'd dirty when it goes infinite with bloodcrank, but given that your commander is a mill reanimator, it fits perfectly

I wanted to go self mill mostly as well, but some opponent milling cards like Altar of the Brood and Consuming Aberration fit in pretty well and kinda act as my quasi removal. With cards like Withered Wretch and Bojuka Bog to exile problem cards/graveyards. But I didn't want to have too much graveyard exiles because its the exact opposite of what my deck wants to happen.

I do like Mindcrank I was making a Mimeo zombie mill deck a while back that kinda fell apart that had Bloodchief Ascension in it to, mill or damage equals mega death.

ThisIsBullshit: Thanks so much! This deck has been a long time coming. About five or six years now :P Best of luck with foiling out Kaalia. Check out my Trades! I've always got foils looming. If you don't see them in my trades, check out my decks. I'm always happy to trade as long as it helps me out in the long run [=

slovakattack: Liliana of the Veil is amazing here. She tromps all over the control and aggro decks in multiple modes. She's so good, her bomb is irrelevant most times. Typically, I get a couple cards from everyone being careful about what they're pitching because Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is usually ALWAYS on the board, and maybe she'll hit a problem creature before anyone's board gets too wild. Yes, I've used her to kill Iona, Shield of Emeria before. So for me, this $250 foil is good right where she is :P

As for Bloodchief Ascension... Do you have a foil one for trade? :P I am actively seeking that card for this deck, but it HAS to be foil. :P

This deck looks absolutely gorgeous. I do have to ask, though: Has Liliana of the Veil pulled her weight for you? She generally isn't all that great in EDH.
