Players can't draw cards.
At the beginning of each player's draw step, that player loses 3 life, searches his or her library for a card, puts it into his or her hand, then shuffles his or her library.
Hey, thanks for building this deck, like I said, I've been trying to build something like this but I've been going MBC in modern, haha. On further consideration, Demonic Tutor isn't really needed, I was looking at Maralen of the Mornsong as a combo piece, I forgot she tutored as well (oops...). I don't know anything, really, about vintage, I play standard and kinda understand legacy and edh, but this looks good to me. The only problem might be against blue control/storm decks (bouncing combo-pieces) have you considered Dash Hopes at all? Or are you just hoping to combo out before lock-down?
I'm thinking against Demonic Tutor though as the deck already runs 12 tutors, 8 of which (Weird Harvest , Tooth and Nail ) can fetch two creatures (Ob + a combo piece) and the other four are a combo piece. (Maralen of the Mornsong )
Hey, thanks for commenting! I just sort of threw this together in my head with a little help from Gatherer. I don't actually own these cards, but I enjoy theoretical deck-building. I like the idea of Fastbond and Deathrite Shaman . Also the power nine are always good in my book for ramping up power level. Dark ritual seems like an awesome way for turn one Maralen of the Mornsong . I'll definitely work on tweaking the numbers to see how it performs with these additions. :)
Hey there, I'm really interested in some of your cards. Would you want my Felidar Sovereign ($9.45) for your Lich Lord of Unx , Nim Deathmantle , Eternity Vessel , Reaper from the Abyss , and (most importantly) Maralen of the Mornsong (total of $9.36)? Post on my wall with what you think and check out my binder if you'd like.
qwertyking: Issue being with those cards is that they're going to do a lot of damage to me way too fast. The whole purpose of the deck is to play Maralen of the Mornsong as quick as possible, go get Dark Sphere , Ad Nausem, and Sickening Dreams and kill my opponents while preventing half the damage to me. While Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond is a fun combo, its not efficient for the deck. Bloodchief Ascension could possibly work.. and Mindcrank would not work since they're only putting one card in hand per turn, not drawing a significant amount.
How about Maralen of the Mornsong ? I'm not saying she's always good, as her effectiveness is highly dependent on your meta. Also, in the wrong meta, you just don't want to run her in case your buddies hate this too much.
