Draft Bloodmire Thornbush face up.

Whenever Bloodmire Thornbush is drafted, the last person who drafted it gains control of all cards named Bloodmire Thornbush.

A deck may have any number of cards named Bloodmire Thornbush in it.

3/1


Inspired by Canal Dredger 's ability to force extra cards toward that player. I figure you probably are not going to see more than one Bloodmire Thornbush, but hey you never know. If it was printed as a bulk rare, that'd be really interesting.

Speaking of which, how about the next challenge is to make an interesting bulk rare. For example, Demon of Catastrophes is interesting as it is a giant 6/6 with Flying and Trample that costs just 4 CMC. Yes the sac cost is there, but sacrificing a small 1/1 for a giant 6/6 is amazing. I can't tell you how many of these bastards I pulled, but it was enough to run effectively in two different decks.

Awesome deck, like it a lot, have you ever considered putting Demon of Catastrophes with k'rrik his basically 2 mana and you could always sacrifice Endless Cockroaches or a zombie token and get a 6/6 flying trample which i quite threatening early game.

Don't add Heartless Summoning ; you're not playing with crazy expensive demons. I approve of Demon of Catastrophes as a secondary way to kill your own Abyssal Persecutor .

I vote Defile instead of Tragic Slip . Fungal Infection might be worth considering, because it can still stop a few critters in modern.

If you go with more sacrificing Sengir Autocrat and Rite of Belzenlok create lots of tokens that can be sacrificed, but are too mana-intensive for their effect. Maybe Doomed Dissenter , Lazotep Reaver or Orzhov Enforcer ? Bitterblossom is too far out of budget range, but for a consistent stream of sacrificable creatures Dreadhorde Invasion but be worth it.

RNR_Gaming so I would have to drop dire moon and griselbrand. If I added 4 heartless summoning I would still need 4 more cards, I was thinking maybe Plaguecrafter or Demon of Catastrophes

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Cards to consider cutting to make 100:

In your forum topic you said you're not worried about reducing the high avg. CMC by cutting high CMC creatures because you can pay Phyrexian mana to reduce their cost. This is true to some degree, but you're not always in every game going to have Krrik on the battlefield, access to Phyrexian mana, and the times when this happens then having a lower avg. CMC will allow you to actually play Magic.

The other problem is why play worse high CMC creatures then Vilis, Broker of Blood , Pontiff of Blight , Sheoldred, Whispering One or Reiver Demon ? There's no reason to jam a bunch of other high CMC creatures just because you can. These creatures especially the interaction of Vilis, Pontiff with Krrik are better than all the other high CMC creatures who are within the budget here. You would rather draw them then the others therefore make it easier to draw them and don't include lots of other high CMC creatures?

Pontiff of Blight giving extort to all creatures you control is good especially if you're playing a life gain strategy. Extort can be paid for with Phyrexian mana, that's what makes it busted. Each extort trigger can be paid with 2 life, but if you have three opponents you gain 3 life for each trigger, you gain 1 life per opponents who loss life. This means you extort for free and also gain 1 life after each trigger. Even if you only have two opponents you're still getting to extort for free because of Phyrexian mana.


Before you can do anything with Krrik and Phyrexian mana you have to get him on the battlefield and this means getting four mana (colorless or black). First priority for upgrades to consider is adding more early game ramp that's within the budget:

The strength of Krrik is Phyrexian mana, but to take advantage of this you want lots of other one mana cards. When you play Krrik you want to right away start giving him counters:

Cremate, Wisps, Tainted are not usually playable cards, but with Krrik they are because they're free to cast and most draw a card. For one mana or free Symmetry can get you Necropotence into your hand.

Two drops are also good, not as good as one drops, but still good value with Phyrexian mana:

You could fit Demonic Tutor and Diabolic Intent in here if you wanted by cutting some cards that are by no means as powerful as either because these tutors can get you Necropotence , Bolas's Citadel or Aetherflux Reservoir ; all more impactful cards/game winning cards. Consider cutting these cards to add Demonic/Intent? Most of these cards are high mana cost redundancy which are not needed:

I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

I would cut Bloodgift Demon , Demon of Catastrophes , Indulgent Tormentor , Ring of Xathrid , and Pristine Talisman . They are your weakest cards and you have plenty of better draw power.
