Bloodgift Demon Discussion

Thanks NV_1980! I will see what I can remove from the deck to add some of the cards you suggested. I ran across most of them, but figured that the artifacts in addition to my commander's (Tymna the Weaver) ability and Bloodgift Demon would be enough to manage the card drawing and the mana usage. And about the tutors, I am a rookie in MtG, so I do not use a lot of tutotrs, but I added Rune-Scarred Demon because I saw enough potential with it. I guess I was wrong! I will look into it.

Bezter on Kaalia's Kitchen Table

Looking nice so far!! Here are some suggestions from my experience, fellow Kaalia player :)

As far as creatures go, pretty much just play the ones you like!

Some less-budget suggestions: Master of Cruelties, pretty much instant kill if they have no blockers. Rune-Scarred Demon, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Aurelia, the Warleader, Lord of the Void, Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Gisela, the Broken Blade. Those are some of my favorites. A little heavier on the budget but super fun!

Mid-budget options: Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Platinum Angel, Anya, Merciless Angel, Mana-Charged Dragon, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Angel of Despair, Mother of Runes, Deathless Angel, Hellkite Tyrant, Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Blinding Angel, Overseer of the Damned, Akroma, Angel of Fury.

More budget-friendly options: Angel of Serenity, Angelic Arbiter, Indulgent Tormentor, Reya Dawnbringer, Harvester of Souls, Bloodgift Demon, Exquisite Archangel, Herald of the Host (For multiplayer), Angelic Skirmisher, Bruna, the Fading Light (to pair with Gisela), Seraph of the Sword, Guardian of the Gateless.

There are obviously numerous options as far as creatures go. Those are a couple of mine. But don't go off just what other people say- if you don't like the feel of killing someone outright with Master of Cruelties, don't get him! If you want to play a little more defensive you can run Seraph of the Sword and Guardian of the Gateless or something! Just play what you want to! :)

You may want to stay away from enchantment Auras, as they can get 2-for-1ed pretty easily. Gift of Immortality is great though, as it can come back to the field. Maybe opt for equipments instead, such as Fireshrieker in place of Battle Mastery and Prowler's Helm (which I see you have) or Whispersilk Cloak, which has the added benefit of shroud. Spectra Ward is a pretty good Aura, as it gives protection from all colors, making whichever creature (supposedly Kaalia) free to attack and block, without taking any damage. But again if someone plays Day of Judgment, it'll get 2-for-1ed.

Not really sure about the curses. I personally probably wouldn't run them, but they seem fun!

Dragon Tempest is a good include. Give all your fliers haste!

That being said you might want to not have too many at all. Mainly equipment to protect Kaalia, like Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and Mask of Avacyn or equipment of the like.

You definitely want ramp, and I see you have some. The appropriate signets, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, probably the cluestones (They can draw you cards, which is usually more useful than getting a small creature until end of turn, as with the keyrunes).

You have quite a bit of removal which can be good! Sometimes you can have too much though, and that is occasionally my problem. You have some good target removal and a couple good board wipes. I have Earthquake in my deck, although I haven't found it super useful yet. Merciless Eviction, Hallowed Burial, Planar Cleansing, akroma's wrath, Fumigate, and maybe even Torment of Hailfire are good. But as with creatures, there are tons of options for board wipes.
Land bases can be pretty rough to figure out, not to mention expensive. Going super budget, obviously the guildgates, lifegain lands (Scoured Barrens, etc.), bounce lands (Boros Garrison, etc.), other dual lands (Forsaken Sanctuary, etc.). All the basics. Other useful, cheap lands include Exotic Orchard, Rupture Spire, and the pain lands like Caves of Koilos and Battlefield Forge.

If you're going to spend a little more, the check lands like Clifftop Retreat and Dragonskull Summit are great. Scry lands such as Temple of Malice and be very useful. Obviously fetchlands and shocklands are good, but not friendly to the budget at all. I don't think they're worth it sometimes. But everything is up to you! :)

Hopefully these suggestions help! I've said it a lot, but play whatever you think will be the most fun for you! Good luck in the building process- I'll be following along to see how it goes! :)

ScrOuch on Meren's Grave Shenanigans

Cool Deck, I love graveyard interactions! I own one myself (with a different commander and a different color combination though) and it's always an absolute blast to play with it!

I also took a look over the suggestions the other users gave you which seem to have brought the deck in good shape already! However, there were also some suggestions which didn't make it in your deck 'til now but which I would consider absolutely awesome, so I will mention them again. Just so you know.

Those cards are Blood Artist, Greater Good, Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. Each one of them are working absolutely great in here! Dictate and Pact control your opponents board state, Blood artist works perfectly with your commander and Good is an awesome draw AND sac engine. It really is everything you want!

Greater Good is also a good transition to my next point. For combo it's important to get the cards you need and I already see that you play a ton of good tutors which is good but I still miss some draw engines to make your deck even more consistent. Right now your draw engines are Yavimaya Elder, Smothering Abomination, Grim Haruspex, Skullclamp and Solemn Simulacrum which make a total of 5 cards but I would greatly recommend to play at least 8 cards of that category (10 would be even better to achieve your goals). Cards that do exactly that AND fit to your commander are Phyrexian Arena, Harvester of Souls, Necropotence, Bloodgift Demon, Dark Prophecy and Kothophed, Soul Hoarder. Since some of them also cost life I'd recommend Disciple of Griselbrand which grants some lifegain and is also a sac engine. Aand last but not least, Attrition is also a very nice addition to your deck!

Cards you could consider to cut are:

Avenger of Zendikar: It's super powerful but doesn't really synergize with what you wanna do and it has quite high cmc.

Dread Return: I feel you have more than enough recursion, especially since your commander herself does the same. I even think you could cut 2-3 more cards of that category.

Elves of Deep Shadow: Since you only play two colors that mana ability isn't worth the damage. Rather play any other one mana elf dork.

Eliminate the Competition: I'd cut that card for Attrition.

Grisly Salvage: I understand what you wanna do with that card but I'd greatly prefer Greater Good over this one.

Well, I hope I could help you with this! Keep up the good work. Did I mention I love graveyard interactions?

Yah, Kokusho, the Evening Star is pricey and it sucks that it has to die for it's ability to take effect. You do realize that you get to draw a card each turn with Bloodgift Demon right? Also consider Warden of Evos Isle, Mulldrifter and Desecration Demon.

Oh ya, Nightveil Specter can exile lands too forgot about that. You say that you play 5 man free for alls? How about Kokusho, the Evening Star? Bloodgift Demon seems good to.

Perpetual on Life Sap 2.0

First off, I'd recommend looking into switching to Oloro, Ageless Ascetic if you can. He is built for this sort of thing.

I think I would cut Accursed Witch  Flip because when you are working in low-impact drains, you want them to be global hits, like Extort, the Cliffhaven Vampire or Drana's Emissary. Pinging a single opponent for 1 per turn in a multiplayer game is going to take far, far too long. It's not more drain, but I would look into Bloodgift Demon in that slot. It's a beefier creature, it flies, and it draws you cards.

I am unsure what exactly to cut for it, but given your theme, Paraselene seems like it would have a home.

I do have Succumb to Temptation and I like the idea of Phyrexian Arena not sure if I'll use that or Bloodgift Demon since it's cheaper
