Bloodline Keeper Discussion

SolvableMattB on Bontu's playfield! xD

6 days ago

i like it, you might want to add in more token generation, like Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Ophiomancer and i dont recommend demonic pact unless you are playing a way to get rid of it, or you are playing a liliana deck, or you play with a play group that makes you want to die. Oketra is nice, i think she is pretty good, but i prefer bontu because bontu is black and i prefer black.

(please delete the last comment and keep this - something went wrong and it was posted missing some parts)

Darkshadow327, Answering as requested, I'd cut:

(Just a note: these comments bellow consider a competitive enviroment. If you want it a 'for fun' deck or your local meta allow you to use the deck this way, not worry about these comments. Just have fun, ok?)

Duskmantle Seer - Not a advantage feature, as long you keep lots of hight-cost cards (including other copies of himself). Bob do the same and note that decks that use it keep the CMC curve very, very low (usually the most expensive cmc in this deck is Liliana of the Veil - CMC = 3).

Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet - Powerfull effect, indeed. But 7 mana? No way. 99% of your games will reach maximum turn 6. Keep this in mind; if you want to play something in your deck, make it till turn 4.

Blood Tribute - Too expensive. 6 mana its a lot to 'not 'win-the-game-card'. Same for Sanguine Bond.

Ruinous Path - Good to have protection against Planeswalker, ok. But Sorcery speed... You're already using Hero's Downfall - use it at the SB. In main, use more effective removal (last comment have some examples)

Vampire Nocturnus - Good for the tribal, but should be the last point of your curve and 1 copy only.

A (quick) suggestion for your Main:

(Delay spells - 17 cards)4x Inquisition of Kozilek4x Thoughtseize3x Fatal Push2x Dismember2x Collective Brutality2x Remand - over Countersquall (draw a card its good for find your combo pieces)

(Ramp for your combo - 4 cards)4x Heartless Summoning - Cast Bloodline on 2nd turn.

(Combo engine - 8 cards)4x Bloodline Keeper  Flip4x Intruder Alarm

(Tutor for combo pieces - 8 cards)4x Beseech the Queen - Our best tutor2x Dimir Machinations - Tutor for the enchantment2x Gifts Ungiven - Choose copies of the same card thats missing for combo. The good parts is you can pick 4 and keep 2 (just in case your 1st Bloodline face removal)

Maralen of the Mornsong Can be tested (never tested) - sounds fun.

In the SB I'd recomend:

3x Darkness - Death's Shadow, Naya Zoo decks, etc4x Spellskite - Protect your combo pieces2x Ensnaring Bridge - Delay crowd-of-creatures decks2x Mulldrifter - Speed vs fast decks2x Damnation - Cause things become out of control sometimes =)

Well, this must be tested and tunned. But this list can deliver more 'competitiveness', I think. Feel free to discuss card by card!

See ya!

My 2 cents: If you want to make your combo works, I think you should build your deck around it - Fill with nice (but CMC expensive) creatures wont help. It's a 2 cards combo (good) thats work on 5th turn (bad). But isnt a end of world thing (Competitive combos such Scapeshift and Ad Nauseam need around 4th/5th turn to work).

And to reach the 4th/5th turn alive you must 1) delay your opponent and 2) fetch for your combo.

To achieve the 1) you'll need some disruptives spells (discards and removals) - you're with luck. Black have the best cards for it:

  • Inquisition of Kozilek - one of the best cards in Black for modern. You must have a excellent reason to not put in your deck.
  • Thoughtseize - Same of IoK
  • Fatal Push - The perfect tool to kill turn 1/2 threats (remember: your first and second turn you have one mission only: survive and delay you opponent)
  • Go for the Throat - Global removal
  • Doom Blade - Global removal

To combo, you must have specific 2 cards (at least) of 60. Depend on lucky would be risky. To fetch your combo pieces some cards can help:

Or you can use others cards with similar effects than Bloodline and/or Intruder Alarm.

Also, consider some ramp (to cast Bloodline before turn 4 and active it before turn 5) - see Ad Nauseam lists and check how a monoblack can ramp nicely.

Abaques on Budget Olivia vampire tribal

I second the Basilisk Collar idea. It's also gotten much, much cheaper since Modern Masters 2017 got released. TappedOut still says the price is around $10 but I got one for $3.50 just last week off of TCGPlayer.

I'd also consider adding Terminate and if it fits your budget Bloodline Keeper  Flip. Vampiric Dragon is a nice budget finisher too. And if you want laughs, try Baron Sengir just so you can use the oh so common +2/+2 counters.

Callmegkill on Life Leech

I'd say drop the Sign in Bloods and Extirpate. Both aren't doing much for you in the mainboard. You could always add Surgical Extraction into your sideboard later one. With the 4 extra spaces I'd add 2x Bloodghast and 2x Bloodline Keeper  Flip. You also may want to consider Captivating Vampire, he's pretty great in aggro vampire decks.

To streamline this deck, I personally would run only 2 color and 60 cards. Having only BW would limit a few of the things you could do, but would provide you with a more consistent function, and allow for greater theme in your deck. I might splash green for several spells.

Powerful cards to run multiples of: Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Blood Artist, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Captivating Vampire, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth

Black and white cards to keep: Cliffhaven Vampire, Alms of the Vein

Recommendations: Nyx-Fleece Ram, Go for the Throat or Doom Blade, Heroes' Reunion, Wrath of God or Damnation for black wrath, Vampire Nighthawk, Wall of Essence

I hope that that will get you started, and good luck with your deckbuilding!
