Exquisite Blood Discussion

I love that Tunnel Vision ideal so much Derald12. Thanks! Ive also just always thought there was something inherently kinda not fun about the Exquisite Blood combo and Ive even considered cutting Sanguine Bond so that people wouldnt think I was running it, but I appreciate the suggestion nuggnugg.

Any reason that you don't have Exquisite Blood in the deck other than the price?

ShreddedByCrows I love your suggestions. I don't play a lot of creatures because I wanted a different deck than the whole creature based shenanigans.
Lich's Mastery works well with Bloodchief Ascension, Exquisite Blood, Consume Spirit, Soul Burn, Drain Life, Exsanguinate, and lastly, Maga, Traitor to Mortals. However, with that being sad, I believe I need Reliquary Tower.

@Zidantur - Honestly, I'm not a fan of Masako in this list. I think it dilutes the list too much, especially since it's not a vampire. The one thing I've learned building this is deck is not making it a swiss army knife but have it be very focused on one aspect; being aggressive.
@Comred - Thanks for checking out my primer, I appreciate the kind comments! Edgar is a ton of fun and honestly I enjoy playing it because it's really simple to pilot. As for an aristocrats deck; it's very different from what my list is. While my deck focuses more on getting an early advantage and being aggressive an Edgar Markov aristocrats deck works to play a more midrange strategy focused more on control/combo strategies over straight aggression. My deck tends to use my creatures as beaters where as an aristocrats deck will tend to focus on using creatures as sacrifice fodder or combo pieces. Generally an aristocrats deck will slowly drain opponents of their life, use edict effects (like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos) to control the board and close out the game with some sort of combo; the most popular combo being Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond. Hope this cleared things up.

I've never done clerics, so I can't tell you if it would work or not, but I've got some ideas I think you might like:
Kindred Dominance is a boardwipe where you can keep your creatures.
Path of Bravery could work well here too.

If you're going to run Sanguine Bond, you should definitely run Exquisite Blood. These cards enter an infinite loop, so they automatically win you games! Also a couple of other tips for mono black, Cabal Stronghold is a beautiful card here, as well as Dread Shade. I'd recommend cutting the Onyx Mage for something with more punch, like a Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk. If you want your creatures to have deathtouch, put a couple of Archetype of Finalitys in your deck. Also, if you are playing successfully, Cryptolith Fragment Flip is going to be a dead card, as you always will be gaining life and thus above ten, so it won't flip. The stronghold should net you plenty of mana, but the tried and true Dark Ritual is a mana pump if you think you need it. Good luck!
