Exquisite Blood Discussion

Wonderful tips, thank you!

Exquisite Blood is indeed on my list for pickup at some point, but I appreciate you pointing it out.

Words of Worship is a card I was unaware of, and will be picking it up to include it and give it a try.

As for cards currently in my collection; Martial Coup, Phyrexian Reclamation, and Razaketh, the Foulblooded will likely find spots now.

I will be looking to snag a few of the others listed I do not currently own.

Glad to hear you feel that way in regards to Blood Tithe and Remorseless Punishment. They felt like underwhelming additions, even if they were (sort of) in theme.

Exquisite Blood is an infinite combo with several of the cards in your deck (Sanguine Bond, Cliffhaven Vampire, ...). It's kinda expensive, but even if you don't want to pick up a copy, you should know about it so you know why if everyone tries to destroy your Sanguine Bond.

Words of Worship is a rather bizarre old card (there's a whole cycle) that lets you pay {1} to gain 5 life instead of drawing a card. In most circumstances, that's a bad trade, even in a dedicated life-gain deck, but it lets you survive if you've been milled out, and sometimes you just need one more lifegain trigger. It's main use is to be super fun with things like Well of Lost Dreams ("Instead of drawing this card, I'll gain life and also draw cards!") Sadly, you don't have blue in your color identity, so you can't play Drogskol Reaver, but for redundant copies of that effect, you do get Dawn of Hope once Guilds of Ravnica releases and even Lich's Mastery if you're crazy enough. (I don't recommend Lich's Mastery in EDH - Cyclonic Rift or Bane of Progress type effects are too common.)

You may want more token produces for your soul sisters. Martial Coup seems like a good include because you can use it to make tokens or as a board wipe.

This deck could use some more ways to spend life for value. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Phyrexian Reclamation, Tymna the Weaver, Vona, Butcher of Magan, Chainer, Dementia Master Razaketh, the Foulblooded, and Necropotence all let you trade life for other resources and are mostly fairly budget. I would recommend including a few effects of that sort.

Blood Tithe and Remorseless Punishment seem low-impact in Commander: everyone starts with a lot of life so hitting everyone for 3 or one player for 10 in a non-repeatable way doesn't accomplish that much.

Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond (if you want to go infinite)

Raphstow on Vampiric Bond

Well i know my land base is low i was targeting to go near 36-38 lands, but i wasnt sure if the better option would be to add cards like Lotus Petal and Chrome Mox and maybe even Talisman of Indulgence and others or add basic land and maybe other good dual lands or utility lands i'm missing !

And I'll write the main goal tonight so you can better understand, while technically im trying to overun everyone with vampire that will drain each opponent as fast as possible with the possibility of the infinite combo Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood. Maybe some burn cards could help too?

Thanks again mate :)

Kogarashi on Exquisite Blood and Molten Disaster

You would be correct in this situation.

You cast Molten Disaster which goes on the stack. Pyromancer's Goggles triggers putting a copy of Disaster on top of the original. Assuming you kicked Disaster, giving it split second, the copy resolves and deals 18 damage to each player.

At this point Exquisite Blood triggers five times (once for each of that player's opponents), and those triggers go on the stack above the original Molten Disaster. However, unfortunately for that player, before anyone can get priority so the triggers can resolve, state-basted actions are checked. The player with Exquisite Blood is at or below 0 life, and therefore loses before their Blood triggers can resolve.

Assuming more than one person survived that blow, the Exquisite Blood triggers would be gone from the stack due to their controller losing, and then the original Molten Disaster would deal another 18 damage to whoever or whatever was left.

In a 6 man commander game I cast Molten Disaster where X was 18 with Pyromancer's Goggles copying it. One of my opponents was at 16 life with Exquisite Blood . They were arguing that they would live because they would gain life when Molten Disaster hits the first time. I told them that since the damage happens at once and at the end of it they'd be below 0 Exquisite Blood would happen. Who is right in this situation?
