Quest for the Gravelord Discussion

amatureofmagic, I may have an answer to your query. Quest for the Gravelord may be just what your looking for. Creating infinite 5/5 is nothing to snear at. If you going for mill Diligent Excavator would be the ticket Also Shadows of the Past, Artificer's Assistant and Dark Prophecy to dig for a kill. Lastly, if your concerned about cutthroat why run Falkenrath Noble? Four is a little steep for somthing that’s going to die to your combo. All in all, I love this deck and may pick up a list for myself. Good luck with it.

The Wayward Disciple acts as a second artist. I'm happy with the current balance of artist-type creatures, fodder, and sac outlets in the deck, I just wish the Blood Artist was cheaper. Maybe Wizards will reprint it in the next core set?!

Hidden Stockpile gets a bit heavy on the rules text with revolt (see the "Card Choice Guidelines" section above). Also adds another token type and the robot servos are a bit off theme from the deck (how does a blood artist paint with servo blood? I do try to keep the theme cohesive).

Quest for the Gravelord is an interesting card. I don't have any "early investment for delayed payoff"/suspend type cards in any of the decks. However, it also adds another token, but it is such a specific one that it's less of an issue than mixing a bunch of humans and spirits of different colors. Art is good but not great.

I'm still linking the Rally the Ancestors. Without the exile clause, it would be way too powerful, but as is hopefully would allow for some late game power turns, that wouldn't necessarily end the game (that is actually my concern, that it is just a 5 mana I-win-now card). Also, while I want card rules/effects to be simple, I don't mind that the gameplay has a high ceiling for decision making to keep it interesting at all levels. I'm going to try it in testing...

Have you tried using both cutthroat and blood assist?

I can understand lingering souls is super strong.

To keep it slow and not over do the rest makes sense

What about Hidden Stockpile? Only 1trigger a turn for free so won't over swarm and give you a sac outlet

Quest for the Gravelord is another solid steady wincon

My personal opinion is you could swap out Merciless Resolve for Costly Plunder (shaves one mana for the same effect), Dredge or Quest for the Gravelord or Midnight Oil would be the posible cuts for Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip. My choice would be to cut Midnight Oil. I feel that for 4 mana a bad phyrexian arena is not where you would like to be at. and arguels eventually flips and keeps you in the game with some more life gain after you drew a bunch of cards and now is an extra sac outlet for your triggers.

You could add fetchlands and Strip Mine, Tectonic Edge, Wasteland. Miren, the Moaning Well for saccing.

Solemn Simulacrum and Commander's Sphere would be nice. Tezzeret the Seeker would be another planeswalker - especially nice to -4 him in this deck.

Krark-Clan Ironworks, Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar are some sac outlets.

You could cut Phantasmal Dragon and Quest for the Gravelord for example.
