Felidar Sovereign Discussion

mgc974: Thanks for your suggestions. I used to run Wall of Reverence for the life gain but figured it wasn't worth it. Felidar Sovereign is there for an alternate win condition seeing this deck wants to beat em up. Psychosis Crawler is another alternate win condition via pinging everyone to death by drawing. I have some blink effects, may looks for a Brago, King Eternal to put in this deck.
Homelessguy: Than you for your suggestions. I was actually looking at some of these cards, my only problem is knowing what to cut.

I think Felidar Sovereign is not so good in your deck. Maybe if you're heavy in life gain. So I will play Aetherflux Reservoir and Paradox Engine or True Conviction. But now, if you play these kind of cards, it's another kind of deck too. I think, gaining life is not the main goal of the deck.
Psychosis Crawler is interesting but rarely profitable. Psychosis is good if you're in good position in the game. I will play it in a more combo and/or blink deck. So i will play Brago and Ghostway. Maybe Eldrazi Displacer.

Some really good cards for Oloro are Test of Endurance and Felidar Sovereign since Oloro just kinda sits his lazy ass in the command zone forever, you'll be gaining a heap of life and these cards make you win if you have a certain amount of life, a combo that is good for any life gain oriented decks is the Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond combo as all it takes to trigger is your gain 2 life at upkeep trigger and you win.
Not got enough card draw? fret not as cards like Greed and Necropotence can provide you with it at a cheap one life per card. if your creatures are killed, use Phyrexian Reclamation. Want even more life? try Paradox Haze to give you not one upkeep, BUT TWO.
I would also recommend a few tutors as black is by far the strongest colour for tutors. I would recommend Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition, Lim-Dul's Vault and anything else.
The usual win condition I see with Oloro decks is they combo off and win that way, some combos that work well with Oloro other than the Exquisite/bond combo is probably the following Reveillark/Karmic Guide+ any sac outlet and something dumb like Blood Artist or Zulaport Cutthroat
create infinite mana somehow and then play Debt to the Deathless to drain everyone to death.
overall I would say this deserves an upvote because as much as I hate Oloro decks, I'll admit they are effective at what they do.

As far as what to cut, I would probably first look at cards that offer relatively little value, such as Crystal Rod and Epicure of Blood. What they do are weak compared to other cards in the deck, and cost a lot of mana.
If you're looking for a more control-style decklist, I had an Oloro deck:

Hi there, just wondering what is your theme for the deck? If you are going for life gain then you could always look at Felidar Sovereign as a win con. Also, if you are looking at tokens then something like Rhys the Redeemed would be an excellent choice. Also, with guilds out, you could probably do with putting some better lands in there. Temple Garden would be really helpful. Also, if you want to go heavy on the life gain, things like Angelic Chorus would help that too.

Idk, I think while group hug would be nice, it also has a reputation for hiding a dirty secret or two. My group hug deck always gets hated out of the game after I pulled a Swords to Plowshares on a 27/27 Realm Seekers with a Felidar Sovereign on board.
What I'm saying is playing group hug, rather than being inconspicuous, can be conspicuous because it looks like you're TRYING to be inconspicuous. Was that insanely convoluted? Absolutely. But you get it right?
