As bushido_man96 points out, Anafenza only affects your opponents, and a 4/4 body for 3 mana is nothing to sniff at.

Forgetting Karn's Bastion is criminal, especially since I've been brewing a lot of Oathbreaker decks lately, so thanks for the reminder!

I did have Mirri in an earlier brew that was more focused on Hatebears, but it's worth looking at here -- You may be right about OoK, especially since Ayli does big chunks of lifegain by herself. I like the extra bit of gas from OoG and the two tokens.

I've found Blood Artist to be a straight up inferior Cutthroat -- Yes, it's one mana but it only targets one person.

Cruel Celebrant and Nissa, Voice of Zendikar are both already in the deck.

can I ask why Anafenza, the Foremost ? sure it puts a counter on another attacking creature. But it stops your creatures from going into your graveyard. Instead, can I suggest Nissa, Voice of Zendikar for its -2?

I would also remove Oath of Kaya and Oath of Gideon as you aren't going to be getting much value out of them. Karn's Bastion does Oath of Gideons job way better, for putting counters onto everything rather than when a planeswalker enters the battlefield. I've also found that the extra counter rarely matters on the planeswalkers. Oath of Kaya doesn't stack, and barely stalls in my opinion. With only 11 planewalkers, I'm not entirely sure what justifies it. Personally would add Mirri, Weatherlight Duelist to control the attacks towards you, and Bolas's Citadel which puts you so far ahead

and since you got Zulaport Cutthroat , why not add Blood Artist and Cruel Celebrant ?

I'd keep Yahenni, Undying Partisan in the deck. A free sac outlet is always useful, and he can become nasty over time.

Dread Shade is cutable. Other than being a creature you can pump, he doesn't give you much. Not enough value for a slot. I don't like Angel of Despair , either. Too high a CMC for what she does in colors that don't have a problem getting rid of just about anything. Better off running Anguished Unmaking , Despark , or Utter End . I think I'd cut the one-time fog effects like Darkness and Ethereal Haze . You just aren't going to get much value out of them, and better cards that support what your deck wants to do should go in their place, like Aristocrats that give you value when things die. Zulaport Cutthroat , Cruel Celebrant , Viscera Seer , Falkenrath Noble , and the like. Teysa Karlov would be strong here, too, as I think it should double up triggers on your Commander.

Hope this helps some.

Okay, so the idea here is that you sacrifice creatures with afterlife for damage ala Aristocrat, but somewhat themed. Standard sacrifice victims,
Hunted Witness Martyr of Dusk Cruel Celebrant

two of these drop tokens on death, and one does damage. We can also add in Seraph of the Scales for a total of three creatures to sacrifice.

The Standard Executioners used to de-board, Pitiless Pontiff Priest of Forgotten Gods

Lets add in some additional Token Creation, Teysa Karlov Finale of Glory Liliana, Dreadhorde General Legion's Landing  Flip

Then lets turn that Token power into magic-magic with Divine Visitation Bolas's Citadel

Then Recharge with Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord

the basic identity of the deck is ping for 1 life and i gain 1 life. i like the Luminous Bonds because it stops amass decks also it really works in arena. i build this deck in arena and so far pretty good. i built around Epicure of Blood Sanctum Seeker and Cruel Celebrant they tend to stack really nice. i only threw in the Legion Lieutenant to boost Call to the Feast with the others. i rarely ever win by hitting and opponent with creatures but by the act of chump attacking while the Cruel Celebrant is out. if i get lucky and have all 3 out they combo really nice. I have added Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord and Conclave Tribunal great suggestions btw! really bring shit up a notch. i have been going to the dragons refuge in Kankakee, but only on Sunday(for fnm) lol. they have a lot of players play commander on Friday and so i have drove over there multiple times only to get "not enough players tonight" from the dude there. He said that they do standard on Sundays at 2pm so i was going to try that. really good crowd there. Kristi and I went last Saturday to the pre-release and had a blast. not too serious players just a lot of "older" people having fun. Not sure if i can sneak out this Sunday but i was going to try. need to get some more modern horizons packs to pull a damn Urza! i did get a Yagamoth and a Sierra so i am not too mad but i need that Urza dammit!

you could try a few cards if you want to go with the life gain path, Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is great for giving the rest of your creatures lifelink and some reanimation from him on say elenda could be good. next, your deck has a decent amount of creatures dying and you have poison tip archer, so then you could try Cruel Celebrant to gain off of that. another good card is Bond of Flourishing , you get to look for a card and gain some life. you could consider Ajani's Pridemate as well, gets real big real fast. lastly, if you added some more sacrifice fodder like Imperious Oligarch then you might be able to add something like Priest of Forgotten Gods but that might not fit into the deck.

My Ensnaring Bridge is Stronghold. And is pretty close o NM as far as I can tell. Here's a picture: link

However, I'm not going to trade it down, so if you want to make a trade, I would only trade for your Doubling Season as a 1 to 1.

Either way, I'm still interested in the cards you listed, and I have some other wants from your binder:

Total Price: $40.82

I'd be interested in trading those for these cards out of what you listed:

Spellseeker , Gamble , Talisman of Hierarchy , Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion , Cruel Celebrant , Ugin, the Ineffable , Emmara, Soul of the Accord , Immolation Shaman , Bolas's Citadel , Flux Channeler , Evolution Sage , Finale of Revelation , Karn's Bastion , Inspiring Vantage , and Rugged Prairie . (Total: $39.79)

Also, I just like to say that I'm sorry for falling though on that trade we'd worked out like 6 months ago. I believe it was for my Leyline of the Void . I wasn't on this site for a while, and it kinda slipped my mind. Neither of us had sent anything at that point, so it's not a big deal, but I remembered it when I saw your username and thought I should mention it.

Let me know if this sounds good, and if you want to include Ensnaring Bridge for Doubling Season as well.
