Exquisite Blood Discussion

keitay on Golos, Tireless Enchantress

Update

Removed: Destiny Spinner, Faerie Formation and Tempt with Discovery

Added: Tendershoot Dryad, Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood

Even though not a fan of combos I already had these two card combo so my friends encouraged me to use it (some of their decks do have one combo in it for win condition). Still testing though (mostly because of playing style).

The others cards were not performing that great so I saw the opportunity for changes. Dryad is awesome tbh. Faerie is also good but with Golos I have other options for mana sinking.

I figured this would be a little more competitive than what was mentioned in the rating here. I need to come by a few cards, obviously, for the drain/gain process. Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood + Felidar Sovereign + Karlov of the Ghost Council and maybe add a Serra Ascendant. Not sure what cards I'd remove for the listed ones I mentioned for curve purposes, but it's a work in progress.

Deadpoo111, Epstein unifies both the left and the right! We all understand that some shady stuff went down, doesn't matter what side of the aisle you on and that is why I have so much love for the theory.

The cards you suggest work well for the deck, the list will continue to evolve and they might be added at some point. My top prioroty is Exquisite Blood when I find a copy.

Btw another finishing combo in this deck is Exquisite Blood and Aetherflux Reservoir, once you hit more than 50 life. As soon as you blast an opponent with the Reservoir you get all that life back, ready to repeat the process until everyone else is dead.

Welcome to Magic the Gathering, where magical ..... well, you know Btw. The strategy you are reffering to is known as Aristocrats.

Rings of Brighthearth - Synergizes with your commander. If you are were to add fetchlands (lands which grab other basic lands from the deck) such as Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs and others, you can get 2 lands for each fetchland by using rings. You sacrifice the fetchland putting the ability on the stack, then pay 2 mana and copy the ability with rings.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth - Makes all of your lands, including itself swamps. The reason for this is mainly to help you ramp with Cabal Coffers

Imp's Mischief - This card does a lot of 2 mana. Lots of spells in MTG target. Removal such as Path to Exile, draw spells like Overflowing Insight, extra turns like Time Warp and even Counterspells target. A cool thing you can do aside from redirecting a spell that has 1 target is the following..... You cast your commander, they cast Counterspell, targetting your commander. You then cast imp's mischief, changing the target of the counterspell to imp's mischief. Imp's mischief resolves. Counterspell tries to resolve and counter imp's mischief but because it is removed from the stack, the counterspell does nothing. Then your commander resolves. Very useful card! Do not overlook it!

I see you already have some decent tutors which is good. Tutors ensure consistency, help you get a combo like Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond. They also help you get whatever you need when you need it, it is black's greatest strength in EDH. Now to discuss weaknesses.....

Black has almost no way to get rid of artifacts and enchantments. If an opponent plays Rest in Peace or something similar, you will find yourself in a tough position. As such, having cards such as Blast Zone, Karn Liberated, Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, Ugin, the Ineffable, Meteor Golem, Ratchet Bomb, Lux Cannon and others can be extremely useful.

I don't know what your meta (the group of people you play with) are like and how powerful their decks are, this seems pretty casual. There are lots of cuts and many more cards you can add depending on what you're going for exactly. If you want ideas of other cards to add and/or what to cut, let me know. Mono black EDH is my favorite.

There is always Sanguine Bond+Exquisite Blood combo if you're into it. Even just running one or the other is a nice effect.

Either way deck looks sweet!

I would suggest Exquisite Blood just on the off chance of getting it and Sanguine Bond . Also Archangel of Thune .
