Bloodchief Ascension

Enchantment

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.

Bloodchief Ascension Discussion

mikeintosh on [[Primer]]-God of the Rising FULL Moon! Butts Up!!

@man1ac Nice observations. I came mostly to same concluisons. I have been tuning my deck yesterday based on some games we had with our playgroup recently.

Totally agree on targeted removal. Myself, I prefer Pongify, Snuff Out (free removal so more mana to use the God) and Curtains' Call (as it takes out two creatures unconditionaly. Some other observations I had:

1) You may end up playing against spell decks, had a hard time playing against Glissa and combo Hanna, Ship's Navigator. both reccuring artifacts and enchantments from the graveyard. So you need a beatdown plan and also gravehate for other than creatures. Therefore I added Withered Wretch

2) Vengeful Pharaoh is better than Propaganda, let people know you have it in your graveyard, they will likely attack elsewhere

3) Muddle the Mixture is just perfect card. And if you transmute, go for Cyclonic Rift

4) Crypt Ghast seems to underperform. you almost never wanna to play him T4 and its instant target once its out. Rather settle for Cabal Coffers, replaced with Notion Thief

5) Dont forget Bloodchief Ascension plus Mindcrank is an infinite combo. Had to take it out due to our playgroups tier rules

6) Memory Plunder continues to impress. Played Toxic Deluge in opponents combat phase or Krosan Grip to take out a combo piece I wouldnt be otherwise able to ged rid of. This card is an all-star in the deck.

Been playtesting a lot and made already some changes which were suggested here:

Dreamborn Muse : Awesome card, even lategame just awesome. The mill is exactly what you need and even with a lot of GY hate there will always be stuff to exile an get back.

Illusionist's Bracers: Dropped Rings for this one cause it comes for free and often is forgotten because its just an Equipment. For me the cheaper and suprisinigly stronger card.

Shepherd of Rot: Had him online but he only puts a clock on the game cause I will drain myself with. Lost 2 games because of him because of some crazy Creature Pump on the other side with added up with my Shepherd. Went for Noxious Ghoul instead.

Bloodchief Ascension: In combination with Dreamborn Muse brutal card, ou will need a Counterspell for both to keep them alive a little bit. Can win games a little bit dirty but for the fun for it I will play it as long is I am allowed in my playgroup :D

Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos : Really like both, they make the game quite fun because having a sac outlet means some sort of removal.

And totally agree on Fleshbag Marauder - but I only like him at max turn 5. Otherwise they will be stuff there that people won't mind sacing (Tokens)

In my opinion the deck needs at least 2-3 cards of direct card removal to get little more control over the overall board situation. Mutilate / Go for the Throat // Barter in Blood may be worth a shot?

Flapsig on Damia - Atleast it's fun for me

Jagd_Tallgeese: I totally forgot about Mindcrank! Especially with Duskmantle Guildmage or Bloodchief Ascension. Let's see if I can find something to remove for it. Don't know if I want to put in more graveyard hate only for Meren, maybe if the deck gets too oppressive. Cemetery Reaper reminded me of The Scarab God, maybe hes gonna make the cut.

I like this deck a lot! I've been thinking about making an Oona deck for about three years now, and this looks like a good intersection of budget and quality.

I see you already have the Basalt Monolith and Rings of Brighthearth for an infinite mana combo. You could add Bloodchief Ascension for infinite life loss and mill when active and combined with Mindcrank.

Another idea would be Training Grounds. It gives you 2 extra cards of mill every time you use Oona.

You could think about adding The Scarab God , too. He combos well with Oona's mill, allowing you to recur and remove problematic creatures in your opponents' graves. His cost is also reduced by Training Grounds.

Liquimetal Coating allows creatures with activated abilities to be targeted by Grand Architect. Imagine using Oona to create Faeries, then tap those Faeries for more mana to activate her ability with, then tap those new Faeries to do the same, etc. You can do it as long as you have colored mana stored up and are generating enough Faeries to tap for colorless mana.

Bog Initiate completes the loop, allowing you to turn your infinite colorless mana into Black and effectively combo out and end the game with Oona.

Have you thought about adding Leyline of the Void? Exiling graveyards in Commander is always good, especially when it's only your opponents'.

The fun part is subjective i guess, however I would strongly disagree with it haveing more hate pieces that people kill. The deck's I've seen run Palinchron/Deadeye Navigator and Phantasmal Image with Cabal Coffers/Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Sure people will try to stop Palinchron with everything they have, but nobody lets Mindcrank or Bloodchief Ascension happen either.

This is Bean.

Budget Suggestions:

More expensive options, or later upgrades to the deck:

I think Bloodchief Ascension would fit nicely into this deck.
