Exquisite Blood Discussion

RogueArtificer on Olivia Voldaren - Control

My first thought is that I'd drop all the lands that ETB tapped for no benefit. Temple of Malice, Bojuka Bog, Canyon Slough get a pass. Along with cards like Rocky Tar Pit and even Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds. When you're a mana hungry control deck, you can't afford to take turns off because your lands aren't untapped.

Illusionist's Bracers is totally worth taking a look at. You have several powerful vampires that would only be better with a double use of their abilities. Not to mention your commander. Always worth it.

I personally don't like the Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood combo, but your meta may vary.

Patriarch's Bidding might be worth looking at if you're not in a tribal heavy meta.

How about cards like Call the Bloodline and Stensia Masquerade to get some more utility for your vampires. Also, with Call, you can slowly stockpile your yard to get a huge swath of creatures with a mass rez, while defending yourself. Would also benefit to look at Skullclamp if you decide to go that route.

Enchantments will wreck you. Chaos Warp might be worth it to get past pesky ones that are locking you down. Red will give you all the artifact destruction you need, and I love Rakdos Charm for this and other flexibility.

Insurrection can be cool if you play nothing but creature heavy decks, but this could be better with Cut / Ribbons to double up on your Exsanguinate effects.

Aggravated Assault seems weird in a more control oriented deck. It might be best to figure out if you want to go all in on attacking or build your vampires up over attrition...which reminds me Attrition, Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos are super strong. Vampiric Rites can also help trigger the Pact/Dictate and get you some cards off your vampires/tokens.

Your deck is overwhelmingly black, so you can't go wrong with Jet Medallion, Ascendant Evincar or other cards that focus on the benefit to playing a single color. Like running Hero's Downfall over Dreadbore instant speed is going to be so much better, unless you decide to run Vedalken Orrery.

Okay, that's a lot of stuff, so I'll cap it off there. One last thing though, and this is kind of pricey so I get why this might not be in your deck: Volrath's Stronghold. It works great with Vampire Nocturnus by being able to chunk a dead vamp on top to get the boost when you don't have it naturally. Mortuary Mire can work in a pinch, but you only get one shot at it.

JV38: I considered Exquisite Blood/Sanguine Bond, but ultimately their CMC is a hair on the high side for this deck and I'm also personally not a fan of infinite loop combos as they're fun as one-off gimmicks, but not so much in a playgroup.

Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond would work here and create an endless loop themselves when out on the field together.

I have a Collected Company, a Goblin Guide, a Fatal Push, 2x Monastery Mentor, 4x Lightning Bolt, a Disallow, an Exquisite Blood, a Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, a Lotus Cobra, a Sublime Archangel, and a Traverse the Ulvenwald.

I'm looking for a Sword of War and Peace, a Gilded Lotus , a Grave Pact, a Consecrated Sphinx , 4x Arid Mesa, a Scroll Rack , and 3x Snapcaster Mage. (all versions are correct)

I also have a binder that contains some of my other haves and wants. Thank you!

OK the first thing i have noticed is you are running a deck of 65 cards. Cut those down to 60, thats the minimum size of a deck but also the beste because you want to draw your cards as often or likely as possible.

The second is, you are playing not enough lands to play 5 drops consistant. normally decks with spells that have cards costs of 5 or even 4 are playing 24-25 lands.

The third thing to notice is, you dont have any real synergies or such the only one i notice is the amount of lifegain and your Chalice of Life  Flip.

Maybe you want to run Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood for an actual infinite loop or something. But how its looking now its just putting out creatures in hope they dont get destroyed to beat him down.

maybe put in some more control elements like Mortify but cheaper: Anguished Unmaking.

You could play some cool reanimate stuff like playing Gravecrawler and Bloodghast along with your Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat and an sec engine Viscera Seer, Nantuko Husk to deal damage and get them out of the graveyard again.

But for now i dont know what strategy you want to go for. Those are just a few hints to fuel ideas. I could help you more if you know what you want to do in particular in advance of playing creatures with lifelink. :D

I would recommend adding Cliffhaven Vampire in to the deck. It allows for a combo to trigger with Exquisite Blood and it resolves when your opponent is at 0. but also He can boost your effects for when you gain life.
