Bloodsoaked Champion Discussion
6 hours ago
Okay, that's what I thought too. The decklist is updated and I do like that recursion combo with Bloodsoaked Champion and Athreos, God of Passage. I used to have Bloodsoaked Champion in my original draft of this deck but dropped him for more draw and utility. I really enjoyed playing him so I think I'm going to add a playset of BSC and a singleton of Athreos to the sideboard to sub them in on games two and three.

This is looking good, especially for a budget build.
I'd suggest adding some cards that you don't mind pitching to Pack Rat. Bloodghast is the obvious choice, but if that violates budget constraints, consider Bloodsoaked Champion, Nether Traitor, or Dread Wanderer.
Check out my own brew (Devotion to Darkness) for more ideas. Good luck!

if you wanna go for more T1 plays then you should consider more 1mana creatures.
more Student of Warfare
Birds of Paradise
Gravecrawler / Bloodsoaked Champion / Dread Wanderer
to name a few.
that is the aggro-ish midrange way to go.If you are interested in full control yeah Duress effects ARE the way to go for 1.
Just Consider this: you do have a generally strong finisher(Knight of the Reliquary) but it is a "finisher" either focus on completely stop their actions before that or trade creatures with them that you can summon back.
either Duress their Rest in Peace from hand or go so much aggro that they regret even bringing them to the game.
For me Cryptbreaker + Gravecrawler is the way to punish my opponent when they mullied to 5 to play Rest in Peace agaisnt me.
(of course i always play 4x Ratchet Bomb vs Grave Hate but still i punish them).
Finally at least keep 1 Crib Swap in sb for those Goyf's / Death's Shadows.
Hope i helped.

@DonaldFuck Good question! The deck actually runs great without CoCo. I have never really wished I had it. I think its the big difference between Abzan and Mardu. CoCo wouldn't really speed Mardu up at all, like it would with Abzan. Abzan needs to grow the board-state and win with sacs a bit more than Mardu and CoCo is great for that. But the Mardu build is more aggressive than Abzan and relies on attacks quite a bit more and we have burn for a little extra reach. Our plan is to sneak in a few early attacks with our little guys, preferably Bloodsoaked Champion to soften up the opponent. Mardu also has Mogg War Marshal to help us widen our board a bit more early on than Abzan would be. Then, on turn 4, rather than drop a CoCo, we would much rather drop a Falkenrath Aristocrat and start going for the kill on the spot. Swing for about 4-5 with the haste and then sac the board or bolt them next turn for the win. So basically, we would rather get a big attack in on turn 4 and possibly win with what we already have on the board then just grow the board a little more. Does that make sense?
Anyways, both are great decks. I just prefer the aggressive line that Mardu takes. Any Aristocrat deck is going to be insanely resilient and will go very wide. But Mardu can put on a bit more pressure and starts applying that pressure a bit earlier. Enough pressure to suffocate a lot of other decks.

Vzq, ya i normally play in a fairly casual meta so i try not to include infinite combos in my decks, but at GPs and other competitive events i put in Triskelion to end games faster. I do like Bloodsoaked Champion and Crypt of Agadeem but im debating on which card to take out for the champion. So far im looking at Solemn Simulacrum given i dont think its anything more than fodder and champion is fodder that comes back.

I like to have a shutoff valve in my commander decks to end games that go on long, so Triskelion combo with Mikaeus is one suggestion. If you have a lot of creatures going to the graveyard, which I imagine you do, then Crypt of Agadeem seems pretty strong. Bloodsoaked Champion can be recurred from the graveyard repeatedly if you do a lot of attacking, which this deck seems to do.

Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton are quite expensive to get back, what about Bloodghast instead? Or some creatures with Undying? I agree with recursion - Immortal Servitude could be good for the deck. Also, you might need more than just Viscera Seer as a sac outlet. Maybe Blasting Station or something?
