Innocent Blood Discussion

They work well with sacrifice outlets too, making each of your tokens from Eminence becomes a Innocent Blood.
It also allows you to attack with your 1/1 tokens even when they can be blocked, as your opponents may not want to sacrifice something better.

I'm also fond of interactions between opponent's cards with my own. Nothing quite satisfies like casting a Dissension in the Ranks on a pair of deathtouchers. Or a situation like, I'm swinging with a 3/3 first strike and a 2/2, they get blocked by say, a 4/4 and a 3/3 respectively, Dissension kills off the 3/3 and leaves the 4/4 low enough for first strike to finish it. I just love cards like that in general.

Hey, the deck looks good here's a few suggestions:
Hope these help!

This is a cool deck! Lots of different ways for it to go off. When last played against a Meren deck, I lost to Innocent Blood and still haven't recovered. That and Smallpox might be worth considering. If I understand correctly, you'd like to produce a situation where you have a ton of creatures in your graveyard and a ton of experience counters, at which point you don't need more land than it takes to get your commander out. I'm not sure where you would go for MLD in these colors, but this a deck at least the recovers well from other players MLD-ing. In terms of targeted land destruction, I'm not sure the 1-fors that black offers are worth it because you're not looking to destroy their land on curve. Because this is a value deck, I think the best thing to do to make it competitive would be to add more acceleration. I don't know how much you're looking to drop or if this is for paper at all, but Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, and other rocks like that would be strong here. Ancient Tomb is obviously worth it if you want to buy it. Alternatively, Wood Elves and Farhaven Elf could be ramp options along-side some dorks like Somberwald Sage and Birds of Paradise. In might be to your advantage also to accerate your mana base a little more. You're only 2 colors and most of your restrictive costs are higher CMCs, so it probably isn't worth running Vivid Grove or Vivid Marsh in my opinion. The same might even be true for Evolving Wilds. Other misc ideas: Spawning Pool to pair with your Spawning Bed, Damnation, Toxic Deluge, Nevinyrral's Disk might be a bit of a stretch, and Read the Bones and its ilk to help recover from wipes. Finally, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed could be a really fun addition. It's good with your sac creatures like Caustic Caterpillar, and you could even throw in Triskelion for an infinite combo that you can put in your graveyard with Buried Alive

Ilmu011, I'll start with your question first. Bloodstained Mire can fetch anything that has subtype Swamp (Like Bayou, Overgrown Tomb, or just a Swamp), same goes for the other fetches. As for your two suggestions, Avenger of Zendikar gets beaten out by Mycoloth, produces tokens every upkeep, unlike Avenger who only does it upon entering the battlefield, along with the fact Mycoloth is cheaper. The +1/+1's given out by its Landfall are somewhat wasteful, as most of the Plants it will produce will be fodder for cards like Innocent Blood. As for Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, she's basically a cheaper Freyalise, generates tokens, and draws cards. Thing is, her 2nd ability is nice, but that's about it. Thanks for the suggestions though.
KeelHaul10, good idea, will do.

I have made a creatureless black deck before and it played surprisingly well. So I will share what cards I found to be most useful to me. First suggestion is Innocent Blood which makes everyone sacrifices a creature for 1 black which is great value. Second is Tyrant's Choice another low cost option that let's you hurt them or force more sacrifice which is fun in a 1 v 1. Third suggestion is Barter in Blood a little more expensive but it can be a back breaker in the right instance. Fourth one you can consider is Consuming Vapors sacrifices + life gain + rebound so it comes back the next turn also. Fifth suggestion would be Torment of Hailfire just plain nasty if you can pump alot into it. Smallpox can be terrible slow down following an innocent blood early on and that is super useful agains aggro. Another life gain/sac option is Blood Tribute it's similar to consuming vapors except it's one cheaper and doesn't have rebound. Lastly is Death Cloud which is smallpox on steroids. Anyway that's my two sense worth take it or leave it. Ultimately it's upto you to decide. I hope I have been helpful. Either way I like this deck +1 from me.
