Debt to the Deathless Discussion

Eradins on BW Lifegain Goodstuffs?

I had had my eye on Debt to the Deathless but forgot to put it in, and Crypt Ghast goes great with it and totally skipped my mind. Thanks for those! I agree with you that there wasn't much consistency. I basically put a bunch of 1-ofs in and played with it for a night with my group to see what worked well and what didn't. Tithe Drinker was an MVP obviously. Tablet of the Guilds gained me so much life I was pretty consistently getting to turn Blood Baron of Vizkopa on if I wasn't getting targeted. The Vampire Nighthawks im on the fence about, but bumped them up to 3 and will see how they play. I know theyre amazing value, just felt kinda underwhelming. I also added some more spot removal to deal with major threats. Pretty much all the other 1-ofs are cards I just really like and want to keep in the deck, even if it's gimped a little bit because of it. My main goal is to have fun and enjoy the deck and play cool stuff. Might take out the Gray Merchant of Asphodel because I have the Debts now, which serve a similar purpose. Let me know if you have any more suggestions or comments and thank you!

You don't have a lot of consistency to be honest. You might want more duplicates of the same card and not so many one-ofs. I wouldn't play a card really unless I had at least two or three of them. Mana curve is another thing to consider all though yours isn't that bad. And I would assume you wouldn't want to make the deck too strong and over priced :P Maybe 4 Vampire Nighthawk. More Anguished Unmaking, more Dark Ritual, more Blood Baron of Vizkopa. could focus on devotion with 4x Gray Merchant of Asphodel Gift of Orzhova. I dont think you need life link enchantments, should just use life link creatures. Anyway some cool and cheap cards to also consider maybe Obzedat, Ghost Council Unmake Oblivion Ring Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Debt to the Deathless Crypt Ghast Victim of Night Murder Tribute to Hunger Mortify

I created this deck to play with my friends, for fun, and combo-win don't fun me, in fact i don't play Exquisite Blood or any other combo cards. This deck is much funny to play and there are many mode to win, for example Serra Avatar and Magister Sphinx or the creatures with lifelink + Sanguine Bond to dealt a lot of damages to a player. There are Debt to the Deathless and Exsanguinate, they could be closures. During my last edh match (5 people) with this deck i win with Well of Lost Dreams + Alhammarret's Archive, they allowed me to have a lot of resources in hand, and my life points were always climbing through the field control, enchantments like Righteous Aura and creatures like Sphinx of the Steel Wind; and then i played Sanguine Bond --> Sphinx of the Steel Wind dealt 6 damages, i gain 6 + 6 for Alhammarret's Archive and dealt other 12 damages to a player with Sanguine Bond. it was a great play, but especially, it was fun! Anyway, Felidar Sovereign is another "finisher" if you are able to keep it alive on the board (XD). So, this is my "style" -> a great play is a fun play (of course, in my opinion) then, no combo like Exquisite Blood+Sanguine Bond. Thank you for your comments, i will wait your suggestions/other questions. =D

Thanks very much for the suggestions! Tithe Drinker and Campaign of Vengeance would definitely be more offensive. But I'd probably lean more towards being defensive in this deck. So Kambal, Consul of Allocation and Debt to the Deathless could be interesting. They definitely fit within the theme. I am worried about not having any instants in this deck. Vindicate is great, but at least if I had Kambal out I'd get return for non creature spells played during my opponents turn that way. Maybe put him in at x 2 over Vampire Nighthawk.

Debt to the Deathless is better than Consume Spirit at 7 mana and above. Most games I'll have that if I have Crypt Ghast out. Definitely worth considering.

Tithe Drinker may have a home here, a lower cost 2/1 with lifelink and extort.

A personal favorite of mine would be Kambal, Consul of Allocation, which could help with the life gain in the deck with a relatively lower cost as well.

Also if the mana base is quick enough you could add Debt to the Deathless or Campaign of Vengeance.

Ashnod's Altar is a nice sac outlet and ramp, Grave Pact is another Dictate of Erebos (albiet way more expensive.)

Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless are good win-cons. Also unless you're playing dual commander Sol Ring is usually included.

Have fun with the deck I just started building my first orzhov deck myself!

Debt to the Deathless Would be a good finisher card.

Debt to the Deathless looks like it would fit right in, and can be absurd in multiplayer. This is a fun build!
