Epicure of Blood Discussion

VladMarkov on Life Lost Deck

Hey everybody.

I am lately thinking about a various ways of winning a (EDH) game, not necessarily by killing opponents with a creatures :)

Today's idea is to make them slowly and painfully die. Or make it fast using synergie of Exquisite Blood and one of those: Cliffhaven Vampire or Epicure of Blood . The only thing is to trigger the effect, and that should be helpful with both extort creatures or the commander himself (plus he gets to draw a cards for me).

I called the deck simply: Life Lost v2

That's the basic idea, but I'm sure it needs improvements. Would you change anything, or suggest what to remove?

I'd be grateful for your help.

Cheers :)

Rorolith I considered the card but pauper doesnt really have any good lifegain payoffs outside of debatedly Epicure of Blood and as a cleric one-drop the soul sisters give more value as the game goes on and stronghold is already strong as a 1/1 with menace and the ability to remain relevant in the late game as a 3/3 with haste

considering this deck says "modern", here are some considerations:

if you intent to keep baking the cat you should consider: Cordial Vampire to get extra +1/+1 on all vampires.


Midnight Reaper ? why? there is something better without the life loss Grim Haruspex !!

Epicure of Blood it's ok for mono black but there is also a white/black vampire that has the same effect Cliffhaven Vampire (for 1 mana less... however is dual color B/W)

Wall of Shards + Tainted Remedy , or Exquisite Blood + Epicure of Blood + Brainspoil to help pull off the combo. Tree of Perdition + Transmutation if you order the mechanic in proper order, can one shot your opponent as things resolve on the stack. must be played properly though.

i see that you heavily focus on gaining life in your deck, but don't utilise it a lot (except for having a ton of life). the only cards that benefit from you having/gaining much life are, as far as i can see Resplendent Angel , Ajani's Pridemate , Dawn of Hope , Storm Herd and Ajani, Strength of the Pride .

if you really want to play around gaining life/having a ton of it, i would recommend Sanguine Bond , Felidar Sovereign , Greed , Ambition's Cost , Night's Whisper , Defiant Bloodlord , Phyrexian Arena , Epicure of Blood and/or Exquisite Blood .

remember that life is a resource in this game. just gaining a lot of it makes it harder for you to lose the game, yes, but you should also trie to use it to win the game.

if you are looking for any other kind of inspiration, feel free to check out my kaalia deck:
