And Bloodghast is not a zombie :)

Hollow One is a very different deck in my mind. I've moved to trying that out since this list is very clunky. I'll post it later, but I don't think I'd play Rally the Peasants, and Scourge Devil seems too expensive to be effective. I'd lean more on Bloodghast or Goblin Bushwhacker if you're looking for hasty threats, though a lot of lists feature Monastery Swiftspear and some are trying Arclight Phoenix

Doomed Traveler seems necessary

Champion of the Parish seems like a decent alt synergy.

Bloodsoaked Champion isnt Bloodghast but dat typing.

Cartel Aristocrat seems amazing too. evasive and a sac outlet

Zulaport Cutthroat can be a boon. lets you ping out decks that fetched and shocked too much and give you a life buffer to stall with

Evil and Bad. Oh boy. I'd consider Bloodghast over Abyssal Nocturnus, one turn earlier and has recursion seems worth it. I could be very wrong, as a 4/4 is no joke, but in such a creature light deck that despite the burn has more of a mid-game win-con than aggro I would be concerned about blocking.

Maybe for the sideboard ;)

Hey thanks for the tips! I'm still a playset of Bloodghasts and a Mana Confluence away from having this deck together, so I haven't gotten in any practical testing yet. I pretty much just looked at mtgtop8 and tried to see what others were doing. It does seem split on the 1-2 vs 4 leyline in the board plan, and I have no idea what sideboarding looks like yet, but I hope to get some reps in soon. As a fellow Ponza player, I saw some Dredge lists that ran a basic forest obviously to get around Blood Moon so you still have access to Life from the Loam. What are your thoughts on that?

The cost of the activation has to be paid before anyone gains priority to respond to it, at which point Bloodghast is already in the graveyard. If you want to Path to Exile before the cost is paid, you have to Path before the ability is even activated, and thus make a guess as to which creature, if any, is being sacrificed.

So in short, you can't respond to the cost of an activation by getting rid of part of that activation's cost. It doesn't work that way, unfortunately.

If you respond to the activation you have to choose a legal target for Path to Exile. Bloodghast is in the graveyard, not on the battlefield at that time so you cannot target it.
