Great creature list!

Have you ever tested with more enchantments like Desolation, Endless Whispers, Forsaken Wastes, Ghostly Prison, Karmic Justice, Megrim, Oppression, Rule of Law, Season of the Witch, or Warped Devotion? They might be fun to try in casual games.

Happy playing!

Hey Cooper! I like the deck! Quick question, where are your Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant!!?

You should check out Vona, Butcher of Magan from the new set, I pulled him(?) in the Pre-release and really got a lot of use whenever I dropped him, he screamed EDH to me. Aetherflux Reservoir is a great hp sink in lifegain, I'd run it if you can!

Ashes of the Abhorrent also gained me a lot of life in the prerelease (which I paid in Arguel's Blood Fast, a damn good draw engine, even if unflippable in EDH). In EDH, the Ashes shuts down reanimation hard, which I notice you don't have a whole lot of, so cutting everyone else out helps you a lot. Greed is also a good draw on command engine.

Since you seem to be gaining so much life, I'd keep an eye out for enchantments like Havoc Festival, Everlasting Torment, Forsaken Wastes, Erebos, God of the Dead, etc. You probably need some more removal for them in the case they show up (which it's likely they will) and hose your deck. Run more enchantment removal to smash them out of existence.

@Shiek200 - I really like Trinisphere, Uba Mask, and Words of Waste! All seem pretty solid here. Also, I'd much prefer Sheoldred, Whispering One over Magus of the Abyss mostly because of sacrificing rather than destroying :P And yeah might as well add a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, why not!

@AlmightyTentacle - Forsaken Wastes and Fiery Confluence are pretty damn good here. I also agree with Toxic Deluge being the top black board wipe but with my experience with this deck, I need to keep as much life as I can lol. And I don't think I'm gonna be adding Pox anytime soon xD

Hi, hebleb

Nice deck +1!

Here some cards I think you can consider to add in:

Let's say I have Transcendence and Forsaken Wastes in play. If I tutor via Razaketh, the Foulblooded would this result in not losing or gaining any life i.e. maintaining the status quo? or would I not be able to pay life?

Steelspike on Size doesn't matter, it's how you abuse it~ Alesha

Malevolent Awakening - an instant speed sac outlet and Tormod's Crypt hoser to get back a key combo piece.

Aggravated Assault - more attacks is always good

Dauthi Embrace - give Alesha shadow.

Fanatical Devotion - more instant speed sac and save Alesha from a nuke.

I also like to run Leyline of Punishment, Forsaken Wastes and Sulfuric Vortex to hose Oloro or any lifegain decks really. Although, wastes and vortex aren't currently in my Alesha build, they're still good cards FOR her.

Smoke - REALLY hoses wide/token decks. I noticed you don't run Crawlspace either.

Have a peek at my deck if you have the gumption.
