Contaminated Ground Discussion

There are a few cards that give all creatures Lifelink, but unfortunately none of them are Black besides the Whip. The list is:

True Conviction

Windbrisk Raptor

Titanic Ultimatum

Vault of the Archangel

Angelic Skirmisher

Azorius Charm

But as far as I know, that's all of them.

You could run Vault of the Archangel if you splashed some white, but I'm fairly certain you wouldn't want to do that because it would compromise the theme of the deck.

I did think of another card you might wanna consider in some way, though. Contaminated Ground has the potential to mess up their mana base, especially for people who need Double of a color. But far more importantly than that, it hits them for 2 every time they tap for mana. There are a lot of decks that absolutely have to have all the lands they put out and can't afford to not tap each turn. Could be useful to you as well as a sabotage to them.

Since modern mana bases are often crazy greedy, maybe things like Sea's Claim, Spreading Seas, and Contaminated Ground? I think messing with other people's expensive toys is quite enjoyable. A buddy of mine runs the first two in a merfolk deck (completely different deck, but same sort of idea) and he has had quite a bit of luck with it. Maybe add some islandwalkers if you were to do this?

Also, not sure how competitive Glen Elendra, shadow slice and deathcult would be. If you are just trying to go rogue on some people at an FNM or at the kitchen table, I could see them being fun. Just sort of depends on what your goal with the deck is.

I just came across Contaminated Ground in my collection the other day.

Would that help?

You might want to look at Rhox Faithmender, Beacon of Immortality, and Boon Reflection to gain even more life. Erebos, God of the Dead will stop your opponents from gaining life and you can use it to draw cards if you need to. Exsanguinate, Leechridden Swamp, Polluted Bonds, and Blood Tribute would help with dealing damage and gaining life from everyone. painful quandry and Temporal Extortion give your opponent the ability to choose between damage or something that will benefit you and can cause them to have to make some difficult choices. Underworld Dreams functions similar to Fate Unraveler is a nice source of damage every time they draw. It punishes people for drawing several cards while being cheaper to play and not being affected by most common board wipes. I would personally replace Corrupted Roots with Contaminated Ground because it can hit more lands. Serra Avatar could become pretty big in your deck as long as you can keep your life up. if you want another card similar to Felidar Sovereign, look at Test of Endurance. You need 50 instead of 40 but it could possibly be another win con for you.

That's awesome.. The first deck sounds like a deck called 'Soul Sisters' (Heavy reliance on Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, & Martyr of Sands for crazy lifegain)

As far as the last deck, it seems that Contaminated Ground & Rakdos Charm would've been the preferred hate against greedy 3+ color manabases & Reanimator respectively.. Fulminator Mage screws over special lands too, but I understand the limitation there.. (I actually only have one myself..)

Other than that, again, congratulations on your strong outing, and thank you for your endorsement.. The last thing I have to ask is; as someone else who has piloted this in an actual competition, what would YOU think would improve the overall strength of the deck?

What are you trying to do? If you're trying to cause your opponent to sac everything while doing drain gain, I'd recommend some Darknesses to stay alive from otks, along with some enchantments like equisite blood and or Sanguine Blood and Contaminated Ground
