Erebos, God of the Dead
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to black is less than five, Erebos isn't a creature. (Each in the mana costs of permanents you control counts toward your devotion to black.)
Your opponents can't gain life.

Erebos, God of the Dead Discussion

Ripwater Thanks man! Can't wait till I'm home and can start working in this deck and make some of these changes! Super excited about them, and appreciate the suggestions as well and suggested cuts as I always find that's the hardest.
I'll definitely look into the swords as I've always wanted them but honestly didn't know about Eight-and-a-Half-Tails ! So thanks
And yup Archangel of Thune would be wicked just is always sold out at my LGS and I like to buy from them as much as possible. I live in a smaller city so cards don't come in to fast.
As for cuts, Krav, the Unredeemed and Regna, the Redeemer I agree 100%. Was testing them out since I packed them but they are to expensive. Rhox Faithmender was another experiment and honestly haven't tried him out yet but included him to help win cons like Test of Endurance but will be cut if I don't ever see him do work. Again I didn't know of Arguel's Blood Fast Flip but will consider it though I do like the protection of Erebos, God of the Dead and don't often run into copy or steal effects in my play circles. Again in my circles there are alot of creatures (and not enough removal XD) and I have won many games clearing with Fumigate and just being at a ridiculous life total either with Atherflux Reservoir or Test of Endurance .
And yeah will do man! Thanks!

I'm happy my tips help, I can understand that some of the swords are harder to get a hold off, especially the expensive ones. But do understand that there are more ways of giving Karlov evasion. Did you know the card Eight-and-a-Half-Tails ? I think you can pick it up for around 2 euro's or something and is not a highly played card, but it will perform well for Karlov.
You really gonna like Smothering Tithe it will give you a retarded amount of mana :-)
And if your LGS has Archangel of Thune that would also be one of the first cards I would pick up, since it's an alternate win con.
Cards that I would cut I think:
Overall I went for a more active approach of gaining life. So whenever something enters or when I do something, so cards like I said before Contemplation effect or Soul's Attendant . And I have cut all of the "Gain 1 life in your upkeep"effects in my deck, like Nyx-Fleece Ram , I really found those to slow and triggering only once to little impact. I think if you are looking for more consistency thats where to start. You really should look towards your support dudes like whenever something happens, I wanna benefit from it. Be greedy, be like Karlov ;-)

Thanks for the tip on Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, I'm a bit in doubt between that card and Erebos, God of the Dead . Since the denying of lifegain I value. Often he is a indestructible creature that can swing in for 5. All that for just 2 mana more. That being said, the copy effect is quite the reason not to run him. I might look into it, till now I havent really encountered someone copying Erebos.
Pontiff of Blight helps quite a lot. Lately ive been shifting my deck a bit more towards Extort again. I always underestimated the mechanic a bit, but it just gives you sooooo muuuuuch triggers. And since not all the extort creatures are worth playing I decided to run Pontiff again. Yes he is mana heavy, but mana I never really found to be a problem with playing cards like Land Tax , Smothering Tithe and being able to tutor to those cards. But if you run enough creatures pontiff is really really nice, especially if you play cheap spells, wich can trigger karlov 2-3 times. Think you should just playtest him a bit.
I now see that my list is quite outdated, ill update it straight away so you can check the last changes i've made. Ill also put it in the log.

Sorry, getting back to my Karlov deck (that you commented on), looking to add Smothering Tithe .
I see you have Erebos, God of the Dead in this deck. Is this to prevent others from gaining life, or for the Greed effect? If it's the latter, I might suggest swapping him out for Arguel's Blood Fast Flip. Same sort of deal, but can't be copied and used against you like Erebos can.

Hey, thanks for cutting me into this. It's good that we won't keep bombarding Lithium, although I do hope our discussion on the original helps other people who find his list.
A couple points: how have you found Erebos, God of the Dead ? Does the lifegain matter often enough? Greed is cheaper to activate and Arguel's Blood Fast Flip is cheaper to cast and can transform into a source of sacrifice/lifegain (albeit unlikely).
Also, what are your thoughts on
It is a dupe for Nether Traitor in Bridge from Below loops with either Pitiless Plunderer/Pawn of Ulamog/Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. It's a great discard target for Lili and just might be worth a go for the redundancy

Heliod, God of the Sun and Erebos, God of the Dead would be sick in your deck, especially since they are creatures AND enchantments. Heliod is great because of his ability to create enchantment creature tokens. Erebos is great because it stops opponents from using any kind of life gain, and paying 2 life for card draw is pretty darn good. Both of these guys are also indestructible, as enchantments and as creatures. They are also big beatdown dudes, who have reasonable (in this particular format) converted mana costs.
