Epicure of Blood Discussion

evilclown5609 on A Pauper's Inheritance | Orzhov Control

I actually really wanna know how play testing is going because i've been thinkin about Ill-Gotten Inheritance for pauper since I noticed that it was common. Epicure of Blood is something to think about definitely helps kill faster but might be too expensive mana-wise.

If you're looking for creatures that drain your opponents and work great with other vampires, I suggest Sanctum Seeker , Epicure of Blood , and Bishop of the Bloodstained . If you want more ideas on vampires, I built a cheap and casual black/white vampire deck of my own. Feel free to check it out Black/White Vampires.

not a big fan of Evolving Wilds if you dont have the money for the dual basic land should do fine

Epicure of Blood look like a very bad card the only card gaining you life is Ill-Gotten Inheritance

Goblin Chainwhirler your probably tired of seing this card but it's really good activate spectacle deal with token and a 3/3 firstrike is scary

I think Reassembling Skeleton is too slow of a card to justify putting in

Lava Coil could help you against agro

love the deck :)

Aragon_Neotrix Playtesting it, i noticed that turn 1 Children of Korlis , turn 2 Immolating Souleater and turn 3 attack, with an Undying Evil or Supernatural Stamina in hand, u can gain tons of life and deal a supermassive damage on your opponent, and those 3 cards in opening hand plus 3 draws are very common to have. So the more you play with it, more u learn about it's mechanincs and tricks. The scenario that i created before works like paying life to buff Immolating Souleater , lets imagine 16 life, sacrificing Children of Korlis (plus 16), than paying more 16 life to buff even more the souleater, giving Korlis undying and sacrificing it again (plus 32), and buffing even more souleater (whaaat?!!). Yes, thats brutal. And we still have Martyr of Sands and all the other cards to play. I think its pretty consistent. (Take care with the stack, everything must be done in the correct order).

Btw i agree with Epicure of Blood and Final Payment , the second one might have a place in this deck for sure.

I'm in love with this deck Daarkest!!

Epicure of Blood does nothing here because of how it reads and how this deck works

You don't gain life from several sources each turn you gain tons of life from one source every few turns. I doubt you'd ever kill with Epicure of Blood tbh

What this deck needs is consistency and a way to survive till late game besides Martyr. Basically if you don't get a hand with Martyr and a Legion or Squadron you are basically screwed against most aggressive decks.

Legion also means you probably won't be using Martyr until turn 4 which even in Pauper is a bit slow.

Gaining life is great and all but you have no way to stop other board set up and only have 2 cards in the whole deck to allow your wincon to be anything but a big dumb beater

The Children of Korlis Combo is nice but I feel eventually most decks will win out as they can either kill or stall your wincon out till their growing board forces you to dismantle your combo just to stay alive.

The new Orzhov killspell Final Payment would be great here though.

I hope I haven't been too critical, I do love the deck Idea I just think it needs work

Krystyl_Rose on Vampire - Life drain

I've built a similar deck. If you want to make the deck have an infinite gain/drain loop to win you the game, add in Exquisite Blood . Forget using Defiant Bloodlord , he's too expensive to be hitting only one opponent, Cliffhaven Vampire or Epicure of Blood are much better choices to pair with Exquisite Blood . If you'd rather use Enchantments instead of Creatures to create the loop, use Sanguine Bond which is cheaper than Defiant Bloodlord, but it goes back to only hitting target opponent rather than each.

yourmumstraight: If you tried to squeeze in some ramp, you'd lose other combo pieces. What you have now seems to work pretty well, so at this point I wouldn't bother with it unless Epicure of Blood turns out to be truly necessary for the win and you want more than 1x copies.

Gattison on Sandstorm: A New Tier 1 Possibility

idk, your curve is so low... Maybe start with one of the souleaters or an Exhume, to see if it helps late-game? You got no ramp, so regardless, Epicure of Blood wouldn't see play until T5, so it may not even be worth it in this deck.
