Curse of Bloodletting Discussion

Marvell - I don't know if you've noticed, but I actually ditched Draught in the last update. It only really got good results about 1/5 casts that I drew it, so that's just not reliable enough. In its place I added Goblin Diplomats, as I recently joined a new playgroup with a heavy blue combo/control meta; people often refuse to attack - so I needed at least one more reliable source for forcing them.

Rector's totally not necessary. It gets me Mystic Barrier, Mirari's Wake, or Curse of Bloodletting depending on what I need at the time, but it's easily cut-able (especially since it's valuable).

Honestly, because Rector's effect is so unique you can really cut him in favor of anything - more forced attacks (Master Warcraft and the like), more ramp (Nature's Lore or a signet or something), more removal (Swords/Path, Song of the Dryads, etc), or even something spicy like Beastmaster Ascension. You're not going to get Rector's effect anywhere else so really anything goes.

If I had to cut Rector myself I'd add Mentor of the Meek back in, probably.

Seority on Open the Vaults with curses.

Making a fun Mathas, Fiend Seeker deck full of curses. If I cast Open the Vaults with curses in my graveyard, will I be able to reapply them to my opponents like I want? Or will they be attached to me?

The card specifically states: "to the battlefield UNDER THEIR OWNER'S CONTROL."

In the rulings it states: "If an Aura can be returned to the battlefield with Open the Vaults, it must be, EVEN IF ITS OWNER DOESN'T LIKE WHAT IT WOULD ENCHANT."

So if I have Curse of Bloodletting in my graveyard, and I cast Open the Vaults, what would happen?

(Side question, do enchantment creatures count as enchantments?)

Looks fun but IMO saskia should have these cards not only as an aggressive tactic but a way to have your opponents kill eachother faster. Berserkers' Onslaught Dictate of the Twin Gods True Conviction Furnace of Rath Gratuitous Violence Curse of Bloodletting and as for equipment you can't go wrong with Tenza, Godo's Maul

If in the market for suggestions, Aetherflux Reservoir might be a good idea if you really plan on casting lots of spells. Isochron Scepter, Elite Arcanist, and Echo Mage can help you get a little more bang for your buck. Also, curses tend to be underrated in my opinion, so consider Curse of Echoes and Curse of Bloodletting. Wild Ricochet might be something you want but I get it if you think its too pricey. Also also, why no cards that actually have the keyword "storm," like Ignite Memories, Grapeshot, or Empty the Warrens? Finally, if you're feeling REALLY brave, you could try running Eye of the Storm. Emphasis on try.

If you really want to make this fast, why not through in some damage amp like Curse of Bloodletting or Gratuitous Violence or extra combat phases with things like Relentless Assault or Combat Celebrant?

Mono-black IS good for vampires to be sure, but since Edgar Markov is a thing, going multicolor wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. Anowon, the Ruin Sage is a strong commander to be sure, but Ed would give you more colors and more options.

Even Just splashing some red and going with Olivia Voldaren or Olivia, Mobilized for War wouldn't be a terrible idea, as it opens up the door for damage amp cards like Gratuitous Violence or Curse of Bloodletting, not mention plenty of vamps that put +1/+1's on themselves.

Splashing some white and going with Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter or Vona, Butcher of Magan would allow for some more life based cards like Campaign of Vengeance or Sorin, Solemn Visitor. Plus, if I recall correctly, B/W vamp cards have a lot token generation.

This may be a lot to take in at once and if it is, I'm sorry. Don't get me wrong, what you have here is really good as far as I can tell. Just be aware of your options if you weren't already.

For a sideboard, Id run the card Curse of Bloodletting over Dictate of the Twin Gods. I say that cause the curse only affects enchanted player, for 1v1. To add some more double strike, and why not a little life gain, try True Conviction.

I feel like the Ebony Owl Netsuke deck is just a little better than this. In it, you run the namesake card with Fevered Visions and often Runeflare Trap with a bunch of effects such as Howling Mine and Dictate of Kruphix. I've seen a few lists running Kefnet the Mindful as well. The pros that deck has over this version is that you have a much more cohesive gameplan that is easier to establish every game, unlike this deck where you have to play mediocre cards such as Curse of the Pierced Heart, Curse of Bloodletting, and Fireball. You could still use Rule of Law and Ghostly Prison in the Ebony Owl Netsuke build, but I would drop the walls.
