Bloodsoaked Champion Discussion

mr_funk on Typical Sac Deck

So, im looking at this from a competitive modern standpoint, and you have it listed as "casual" in the description. i think to up it to somewhat competitive, some slight adjustments could be made, all while holding the theme and mechanics in place. Some choices of cards to add, in my opinion, to make the deck a little better are:

Modern Staples(ish) that would fit right in here like Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Abrupt Decay, Bloodghast, Viscera Seer, Dismember, Fatal Push (why SB??), Blood Artist, Elvish Visionary

other general adds to consider for rounding out purposes or spicy flavor are Blisterpod (why not 4?), Mortarpod, Tukatongue Thallid, Nest Invader, Fleshbag Marauder, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Grim Haruspex, Duskwatch Recruiter  Flip, Carrier Thrall, Evolutionary Leap, Sultai Emissary, Bloodthrone Vampire, Bloodsoaked Champion, Scrapheap Scrounger, Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters.

I'd start by narrowing down to either killing the opponent's creatures or your own creatures. Doing so will give you a more streamlined gameplan. The value of each strategy will depend on your meta-- a lot of midrange and zoo decks will favor the former strategy while a lot of burn and control will favor the latter.

For killing your opponent's stuff, I like the inclusion of The Scorpion God, although you can't actually cast him at the moment. Cards like Necroskitter and Black Sun's Zenith caqn help you capitalize on the counters.

For killing your own stuff, I'd try to find cheaper ways to gain value. Grim Haruspex and Grave Pact are faster than Harvester of Souls and Butcher of Malakir. I'd also consider Bloodsoaked Champion and Bloodghast as replacements for Gravecrawler since you don't have many zombies now. One of my favorite sac outlets is Viscera Seer for a deck like this.

Nice build.

I've actually been killing it online with 4 color warriors.

Voltaic Brawler is worth running extra shitty lands.

Found the comprehensive section clarifying that. Thanks for pointing it out. I've replaced Tymaret, the Murder King, Bloodsoaked Champion and Labyrinth Guardian.

I'd add Fleshbag Marauder and Slum Reaper as redundances of Merciless Executioner because the effect works great with your commander.

I'm sure you know these two, still, worths the mention: Cabal Coffers and maybe Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth to turn your nonbasics into swamps. Could prove interesting with Filth on your graveyard.

You can get more advantage of your commander's ability if you do the sacrifice: Typical sac outlets like Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia, Carrion Feeder, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, Sadistic Hypnotist, Viscera Seer and also, sac fodder: Bloodghast, Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, Reassembling Skeleton.

Also, what do you think about Horobi, Death's Wail?

I feel that Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner are so much better than Innocent Blood in a deck like this one, since you can bring'em back for more profit.

Also, Bloodghast and Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton, even Tenacious Dead are great sac fodder.

I'd take out Obzedat, Xathrid Necromancer, Timely Hordemate, for any of the above and also Spawning Pit for Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar.

Ajani's Pridemate doesn't goes very well with the theme, and you need to include a Crypt Ghast, for mana reasons, and while we're at it, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers.

Pacifism is useful, but does nothing to activated abilities, which most commanders rely on. Better alternatives are Arrest or Darksteel Mutation.

Oketra's Monument is a great card for Teysa, and also Eldrazi Monument, since you should have enough tokens to pay for it.

Lastly, I really like putting white tokens at instant speed with Secure the Wastes.

apolloflame by turn 3 with warriors you could be swinging for a total of 9, 6 of which is double strike and one that comes back from the dead. And turn 4 can win you the game. Not sure if you checked out the deck I posted, but there's tons of good examples in there.

In case you're not looking at it:

Ideal Play (Possible win by turn 4):

You can even run 2x Honored Crop-Captain on top of the 4x Chief of the Edge to increase you chances of a turn 4 win.

The pain lands are probably an economical option for these types of aggro decks (those are the ones I had for my warrior deck before I got shock lands).

Are all good choices.

For turn 4, there could be better choices than Brutal Hordechief, I haven't look around much. But when I was running warriors, it was about trying hard to not miss a drop or a play, since aggro is all about quick kills, swinging for the most damage possible as early as possible always made sense to me. In modern, a turn 3 4/4 is ok, but considering I can have a 4/5 goyf out, or a 5/5 scooze, it very much depends.

On top of that, competitively, you will run into Tas and Angler, both of which can generally be cast by turn 3 or 4 and both are bigger than a 4/4.

You should ensure you always have something to feed Bontu by using recurrable creatures! Reassembling Skeleton, Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, Krovikan Horror and Bloodghast are all good options. Sanitarium Skeleton and Tenacious Dead are less ideal but still have potential. Perhaps Gravecrawler, depending on how many zombies you end up with.

Phyrexian Reclamation, Disturbed Burial, Palace Siege and Grim Harvest are other options for recurring your more valuable creatures.

Once you're set up with all of this sacrificial fodder, why not make the most of it? Attrition, Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, Vampiric Rites, Ashnod's Altar, Bone Splinters and Gate to Phyrexia give you valuable uses for those expendable creatures (or makes the most of their deaths.) This way you can regularly take swings with Bontu without having to use his ability every time!
