LadyZ, thanks for comments.

Maybeboard for this deck is some randome stuff near vampire theme from my card pool. So, I indicated that it is possible to advise cards not only from there. And I don't consider Duskmantle Prowler or Famished Paladin too.

Change Sangromancer on Bloodcrazed Paladin seems good. I think about change vampires with big manacost on more simple.

Think I don't need Anguished Unmaking right now. In our playgroup I don't see deck with graveyard interaction. So don't need change simple "destroy" on "exile".

About lands - best way to put in the deck both, Luxury Suite and Blood Crypt and something like Godless Shrine , but not right now.

I can see a few cuts as well. I don't like Sangromancer for this deck, life gain isn't necessarily something you want to worry about. More an incidental benefit. I'd replace Mortify with Anguished Unmaking .

From your maybeboard, I looove Bloodcrazed Paladin . Excellent way to rebuild from a boardwipe. There's some cards there that I wouldn't consider personally. Duskmantle Prowler for example. 4 mana for a 2/2 haste? you probably won't be using Exalted ever. Depending on how you build your deck, you won't always be able to untap Famished Paladin

I love the combo. I just get the feeling that the number of creatures in your deck that do not focus on getting to win-con combos rather detract from your chances of winning. I see a serious lack of cards to protect your Sorcerer's Wand or Famished Paladin once they are on the field.

I will be working on an alternative version of this deck and hope to post it soon. We could then possibly form a small discussion group of people who play this endless combo, discuss options and test ideas. When our decks start to converge and look very similar we will hopefully have something competitive.

OK - very janky, but great fun. I just had to get in on the discussion here.

Early lifegain to keep Famished Paladin untapping and giving you some board presence before you get your combo going could come from Fountain of Renewal .

If you are going to play Fountain, why not Ajani's Pridemate for an extra win-con?

A second option to provide life-link to your Paladin seems like a must and Squire's Devotion seems to do the trick, but I would tend to go with 3 Devotion and 3 Sentinel's Mark .

I really feel the need for at least 9 spell counters in the deck.

All of the above changes rather cut down on the number of search cards that you can fit in, but so what? they will only get you to your win-con 1 or 2 turns earlier at best. I would go with Shimmer of Possibility as the only search card.

Siren Stormtamer with Adamant Will , or any other card that gives your Paladin indestructible for the turn seem like must-haves in the deck.

i think that I would replace Baffling End in your side-board with something like Sheltering Light .

That leaves Sorcerer's Wand , which creates your endless loop. We really need to concentrate on protecting the wand - hence the added counter-spells.

Excellent Aetherflux reservoir! Suggestion based around my friend's Oloro deck God Wont Let Me Die 2 - Bloodbond Vampire - Children of Korlis (This basically gives you two shots from Aetherflux Reservoir. - Cliffhaven Vampire - Defiant Bloodlord - Famished Paladin - Felidar Sovereign - Serra Ascendant - Twilight Prophet

Sorcerer's Wand + Famished Paladin + (Insert lifegain granter here)= Infinite Life gain and drain.

It's an infinite damage combo.

  1. Equip Famished Paladin with Sorcerer's Wand .

  2. Give him lifelink with Squire's Devotion or On Serra's Wings (I actually found a better enchantment in the new ravnica allegiance set. It cost less, but only gives lifelink for one turn, which is all we need.)

  3. Paladin taps to deal 1 damage to opponent (the wand gives him the ability, but it is the paladin that does the damage.) With lifelink, he untaps. repeat, repeat, until the opponent is dead.
