Exquisite Blood Discussion
7 hours ago
Hey there! First off, props on making a somewhat tribal cleric deck. I love this creature type for some reason, and one of my first good decks was a b/w cleric deck (legacy purely for the cardpool, not for competitiveness) so I can definitely give some guidance. You already have Battletide Alchemist, so you need more clerics to pump up her ability to prevent all damage! Doubtless One gets bigger as you cast more clerics and has life link. Vile Deacon gets pumped up when you attack. I like to attack with him, and then sac him to starlit sanctum for double damage. Also Order of Whiteclay and Oversold Cemetery for more recursion. Also, Rotlung Reanimator could be a beast in this deck and pump out a ton of tokens.
Also, I know somebody mentioned Sanguine Bond already, and that paired with Exquisite Blood will trigger an instant win if they are both on the board and you manage to gain 1 life or ping an opponent for 1. I run those in an Oloro deck and it is great. You may also want to consider Sensei's Divining Top, Enlightened Tutor, Idyllic Tutor, Plea for Guidance, Demonic Tutor, to get some of your engines online since you don't have much card draw. That is all I can think up right now. Cool deck!

Sanguine Bond would be useless because players can't gain life.

Thanks for your comment and upvote! I've used Serra Avatar in this deck before, but dropped it in favor of some other wincons. I've totally forgotten to elaborate on the win cons of this deck in the 'Combo's and finishers' section; thanks for reminding me :) Here's a taste:
- Life-gain abilities + Aetherflux Reservoir; an absolute killer from the mid-game and onwards, as your life total should have far exceeded 50 by then. It's especially funny when Exquisite Blood is out; your net life-loss when using Aetherflux Reservoir: 0.
- Life-gain abilities + Phyrexian Processor; also great fun from the mid-game and onwards. Create massive creatures each turn and set them on your opponents.
- Life-gain abilities + Sorin, Grim Nemesis; Sorin's ult is one of the strongest ults of all planeswalkers and a definite finisher in many cases (though still vulnerable to boardwipes).
Maybe there's more opportunities in here, but this is just what I've had in mind thusfar. I've also been toying with the idea to add Laboratory Maniac, as the deck contains quite a few good card-draw engines. Though if for instance Necropotence would be out, I'd need to destroy that first in order to win by empty library ;)

So, I play megic about 3 years now, and a guy who just taught me now challenge me. I gong to play with black, hes choice is blue (I have a feeling he will play with Sphinx's Tutelage ) . So I just created a deck and wonder what the opinions for other. Am I have a chance or better to change cards.

Defiant Bloodlord really isnt worth his mana cost, especially if youre only doing 22 lands. You really should cut him. In his place id reccomend going up on Divinity of Pride or Obzedat, Ghost Council you could also replace him with Sanguine Bond since it costs less mana and will more easily combo out with Exquisite Blood you also might want to consider Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet since he would lower your curve and slot nicely into the strategy. This kind of deck is one of my specialties and we can talk more about it in person.
