Last Caress Discussion
2 months ago
I think that your deck could do without some of your lifegain sorceries. Cards like Alms of the Vein, Last Caress, and Vampiric Touch don't have a big enough impact to be worth including, particularly if you are playing a group game.
If you are looking to make the most of your extort cards, you could try to find engines that will give you increasing value over the course of the game. Whitemane Lion, Kor Skyfisher, Conviction, and Sun Clasp can all return themselves to your hand, giving you multiple opportunities to get extort triggers.
Unfortunately, Inquisitor Exarch and Orzhov Guildmage have never been printed as commons so you can't use them as part of your 99 (assuming this deck is meant for paper play, since I don't know about the alternate rarities in online formats).

@Ubbo_Sathla Thanks a lot for the suggestions! glad you like the idea of it, I physically cant wait to play it!
Those additions sound pretty good to me, Last Caress, Contaminated Bond and Reave Soul were more in there for space fillers than anything else, but I did not know that Viper's Kiss existed, that seems like an instant addition to me!

As far as suggestions go, I can't help but feel that your land count is a bit low - I tend to stay around the 37 mark. I noticed that you're a bit sparse on draw spells, and black gets some of the best draw pauper has to offer; I run Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Succumb to Temptation, Phyrexian Rager, and Read the Bones in my own list.
Three cards in your list that seem a bit underwhelming to me are Last Caress, Contaminated Bond, and Reave Soul. The former seems too minor an effect, even with the cantrip. The Bond is a cool card, but most of the time I think it's a better idea to remove the threat entirely (if you dig the "slow drain" theme, I think the Contaminated Ground in your maybeboard would be better in this slot.) For myself, the sorcery speed of Reave Soul makes it less appealing - maybe something like Wring Flesh, Spinning Darkness, or Tendrils of Corruption would be worth considering? I also dig Viper's Kiss as "utility" removal.
Great deck, though! Pauper EDH is my new favorite format, as it tends to feel more like 'oldschool' magic.
