Nice deck. +1 from me.

Jedne2 on Cleric Recursion

Initial thoughts: Your curve is very 3 mana heavy, this is good and bad, means you can flood early, but leads to some dead draws late, assuming good draws, this will be fine.

With a curve so low, you may not need high mana manarocks like Gilded Lotus Dreamstone Hedron etc. Orzhov Signet and other 2 mana rocks may be better in its place.

if you have Soul Warden you'll want her sister, Soul's Attendant

You have a lot of ETB effects. Maybe you should have some flicker cards, or ETB abuse cards like Panharmonicon Eerie Interlude SkybindAngel of Condemnation Vizier of Deferment

For the amount of life you gain, Rhox Faithmender may be good in this deck. Big emphasis on may though.

For the amount of recursion you have, you need more sacrifice outlets. Diamond Valley Miren, the Moaning Well Phyrexian Tower Innocent Blood Vampiric Rites maybe even Carnage Altar Diabolic IntentDisciple of Griselbrand Hidden Stockpile Skirsdag Flayer Ashnod's Altar Attrition Bontu the Glorified

Oh, you sorta require Grave Pact I know it has a HUGE black requirement, but it's very much required in this sort of deck.

Some cards I'd consider cutting:

Arashin Cleric not good enough.

Cruel Tutor why not Imperial Seal or Vampiric Tutor?

Greed you already have Erebos, God of the Dead you may as well replace with something better like Yawgmoth's Bargain Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip that being said, you need more card draw. So maybe grab Necropotence or some of the other draw cards I've recommended here.

Gilded Lotus Dreamstone Hedron for what was already said above

Some misc cards/tings (boom) you may want to consider:

No Rest for the Wicked Renounce Selfless Spirit as boardwipe hate

Doomed Necromancer Pious Evangel  Flip

Enchantment tribal? Constellation is a fun mechanic.

@chadsansing: Liliana, the Last Hope, Auriok Champion, and Archangel of Thune are all too expensive for this deck, and Pious Evangel  Flip seems like a worse and more expensive version of a lot of cards already in the deck. I have though been looking into Nyx-Fleece Ram, Wall of Reverence, and Authority of the Consuls and they seem pretty good.
@KINGofORESKOS: Vona, Butcher of Magan seems like an amazing removal option and as a vampire it would help with Blood Tribute. The only downside is the cost. I already own most of this deck and am looking to change it, but I am trying to keep most changes at most a dollar or two and I already have pretty strong removal. This definitely is a card I will keep in mind for future upgrades though

chadsansing on Karlov: Great EDH Update

I love Karlov.

Have you ever tested with an Archangel of Thune? Zulaport Cutthroat might be better than, or a complement to, Blood Artist (or a Pious Evangel  Flip). Are you avoiding the Blood/Bond combo?

Have fun!

Consider adding cards like Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Healer of the Pride, Pious Evangel  Flip, Suture Priest, and Auriok Champion to gain life off of your tokens when they enter the battlefield.

If you do that, Karlov of the Ghost Council makes a heck of a commander or value creature. Other life-gain creatures and effects benefit that card a lot (see also: 4C Locust Council EDH).

You could also play Westvale Abbey  Flip or Viscera Seer + Zulaport Cutthroat pretty effectively in this deck.

Have fun brewing!

It might be fun to ultimate a Liliana, the Last Hope with a few more Soul-Warden effects in play like Auriok Champion and Pious Evangel  Flip.

Nyx-Fleece Ram and Wall of Reverence are pretty good Karlov triggers, too. Authority of the Consuls might test well.

Is Archangel of Thune out of budget?

Have fun playing!

Some cards like Gideon Jura, Worn Powerstone, Comeuppance, Disenchant, Slaughter Pact, Eldrazi Displacer, Skeletal Scrying and Akroma's Vengeance.

You want to focus on the life gain theme but there are better cards then Retreat to Hagra, Cathedral Sanctifier, Auriok Champion, and Pious Evangel  Flip.

TypicalTimmy on List of Bugs and Feature ...

Idk if anyone has mentioned this, but a growing number of cards are not loading their reversed side for the transform cards, and many cards are loading as generic black images with only the card name. Also, many cards (Especially the ones reprinted in Iconic Masters) are failing to load prices.

Here's a list of cards I have noticed problems with on the decks I have created.

So far that's all I have noticed, but I did notice that with these cards when I enter playtesting it often has issues. It won't truly "randomize" decks (You'll often topdeck the same card you just drew, or you'll shuffle all lands to the top / bottom).

I don't know if it's a coincidence but it's worth noting these are all black cards with the exception of Pious Evangel, who's a white creature but transforms into a black creature and it is the "Flip" side-text that won't load. That, and in playtest when you flip him over it reveals the generic back of the card, and not Wayward Disciple.
