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.

@MagicalHacker Thanks for the CnC. I actually started and have continued this deck as a Kaervek deck. He isn't a very practical commander, but he is also very fun when he does work. I typically will not play him unless I have a good board state, or my opponents are having counterspell wars/storming off/etc. Mogis is strong, but his effect is very linear and overall pretty meh. I'll probably stick with Kaervek, and hope that a more fun Rakdos general is printed. Just to note, I would probably swap out Kaervek for Olivia Voldaren before Mogis.

Just as a side note, Kaervek is also better than Mogis due to the ability to hit creatures. You may notice I have very few ways to deal with large amounts of creatures, and he is a great way to slowly eat away at their field. It keeps the Edric, Spymaster of Trest and Derevi, Empyrial Tactician decks in check sometimes.

Mourner's Shield is exactly what I would be looking for. Loxodon Warhammer will likely also make an appearance in here, but only after I decide on what to cut.

After looking through the searches you did, only Thought Prison and Bloodchief Ascension jumped out at me. I'll have to find them in the future.

Thanks for your help!

I like this a lot have you considered Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank to get the two damage in maybe consider Liliana's Caress or something of the likes. Instead of 4 Sedraxis Specter maybe which is super mana intensive you could use Hypnotic Specter which only asks for double black. Hypnotic's discard effect is also at random which means they can't just choose the worst card in their hand. To fit in the mindcrank and bloodchief you could consider cutting 3x Rise/Fall and 2xConsuming Vapors and 1xPilfered Plans and add 3xMindcrank 3xBloodchief Ascension. These are just some ideas, idk what cards you wanna keep. +1

You want your opponents to have a discard step because you'll be filling up their hands, so axe Anvil of Bogardan. If you have Bloodchief Ascension, you need Mindcrank. If you have Exquisite Blood, you need Sanguine Bond.

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 Price
