Infernal Contract Discussion

I'm just going to list some self harm cards at you because i don't have anything better to do :D
4 months ago
Okay so I just did a bit of testing and I officially cut Cremate and replaced it with Infernal Contract, because I found that it was a much more powerful draw card in most situations, and I can usually spare the extra 2 mana and the life loss doesn't really affect me because it will most likely win me the game very shortly after. Drawing 4 cards in this deck is really good, especially if I choose it as one of the 5 cards from Doomsday's effect, essentially letting me draw the exact 4 cards I want to help me win the game on the next turn, even if i don't have hardly anything I need in my hand, cause my combo is really only 4 pieces. It leaves my library empty though, which means I have to win on that turn or else it's all over. Yolo I guess.
I still couldn't really find a place for Stitcher's Supplier, but I really like where the deck is right now. I'd now say the card I like drawing the least currently is Unearth, but i'd still rather keep it over Cremate because in addition to the 1 mana recursion effect that's useful if someone destroys one of my important creatures, the cycling also proves to be useful too in a pinch, and it sometimes lets me win a turn earlier than I would have because it gave me exactly what I needed.
However I'm still open to suggestions on cards you think would fit here, and let me know if any new cards come out that I might not have seen that would be good too (one mana zombies and more Blood Artist effects really). Thanks again for all the views, upvotes, comments, and suggestions guys! This has officially blown past my 'Teysa, Orzhov Scion' Token EDH Deck in overall popularity and I'm glad everyone is liking it.

Thanks for the comments guys! Glad you liked the deck. I really like playing it and it keeps getting more and more consistent every time I tweak it. I really appreciate the suggestions. While I do agree that Blood Pet and Cremate are probably the weakest cards in the deck right now, I really don't want to take out Doomsday because it just wins me the game so consistently. Infernal Contract looks really fun I think that'd be a good fit for this deck, maybe I could use that for my card draw instead of Cremate. Blood Pet really helps me when I'm having a hard time drawing lands. He's basically just a Swamp for me that also triggers Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat when I sacrifice him. I even profit mana when Carnival of Souls in in play because I get one when he enters AND another one when I sacrifice him with his ability. Diabolic Intent looks like a really cool card for this deck too, but for that kind of money I'd probably just get Entombs, because 90% of the time the last card I'm looking for is Gravecrawler, and for one less mana and not having to sacrifice a creature I can just put him in my graveyard, which is where he belongs anyway. That reminds me, do you know of any good 1 drop zombies that I could use to ensure I can always play Gravecrawler? Carrion Feeder was really the only good one I could find and he's incredibly good in this deck because not only can I use him to play Gravecrawler from my graveyard, I can also sacrifice him to him as well (for only 1 mana it seems almost too good to be true). Thanks again for the comments guys. I really appreciate it.

I think the concept is really fun. I do think that you could go with the Git probes and such and add in some things like Cabal Therapy as a method to protect your combo. I don't think the Blood Pet, Doomsday, or Cremate are quite necessary, and if you want more card draw to find things Infernal Contract or Sign in Blood, could help you get there and Diabolic Intent is a decent tutor you could use to find what ever piece is missing to finish the combo.

@Morbid_Empress: You can still play red, but only if it's in your budget. If budget is an issue, you can cut the red draw spells, use black discard outlets, then use black for Night's Whisper/Ancient Craving/Sign in Blood/Necropotence/Cruel Bargain/Phyrexian Arena/Griselbrand/Infernal Contract.

I understand Demon of Death's Gate & Liege of the Pit due to being able to use the alternate costs to play the cards, but Lord of the Pit...? Have you been able to survive to get to a 7 drop? I suggest trying out Death's Shadow since your life will be low.
Wall of Shadows + Worship is also a difficult way to stall the game. (might be a sideboard card against any players not playing exile effects). Worship might be better than Lich as when you are damaged they you don't have to sacrifice permanents and Liege of the Pit and Demon of Death's Gate downside doesn't have an effect. Angel's Grace can also be a one time save until you get your enchantments down.
Repay in Kind > Soul Conduit paying 7 in one turn is better then 12 or 6 over two. You can also try out Magus of the Mirror as additional versions of that effect.
the deck could also use some card draw to ensure you hit one of your enchantments. Try out Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, or Read the Bones. If you really crazy then Pain's Reward or Infernal Contract
I would remove Phyrexian Altar, Phyrexian Walker, Lich
Nice idea haven't seen many decks like this. Happy brewing.

Cruel Bargain and Infernal Contract cost three black... In four color... That could work though if I put in Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Like the other two. Great to see you here again bankrupt_on_selling
