Just curious, based on your evaluation, what are your picks for secondary win-con past Repay in Kind ? And why?

I've considered Kokusho, the Evening Star before, but I also focused solely on the life gain (which is good, don't get me wrong). The real benefit is draining 5 to EACH opponent. That makes it another combo piece/win condition, post- Repay in Kind . Thanks for bringing that back into the fold for me, mentally.

Thanks for the input!

Not a fan of sacrificing swamps to go for a larger Exsanguinate in case it doesn't resolve. However I do like the idea of Bubbling Muck as a way of bumping the mana for it.

Also removed Rise of the Dark Realms (expensive) and Repay in Kind (see it as a niche use) to lower CMC

BLOODGUILT on Bad to the Bone - Torgaar, Life drainer

Love this idea and i have a card idea that might fit but you'll need more payoff's for it to be a good card. Wall of Blood it combos with Disciple of Bolas gaining back the life you paid and drawing you anywhere from 39 to 1 card. It also works with Repay in Kind setting everyone to one life if you choose. Very risky but hey, you're playing black so let's play. My favorite Wall of Blood trick is Rite of Consumption basically just blast somebody for 39 life and reset your life total. The ceiling goes up with Sanguine Bond or even Exquisite Blood . There are also a couple vampires with these effects on them but they are infinite combos and not everyone wants those in their deck. I was surprised to not see Grave Titan in the deck. He's a good body, makes food for Torgaar and has death touch. The last thing i would suggest is recursion, flicker effects or copy effects. Mimic Vat Helm of the Host God-Pharaoh's Gift some of the above suggestions also spells like Blood for Bones you can cast Torgaar and sac him to Blood for Bones and bring him back plus gain another creature from your graveyard like Disciple of Bolas to maximize value. What do you think?

vasarto77, Selenia's ability is phrased so that you pay 2 life, then put an ability on the stack that will return her to your hand when it resolves. You can hold priority and respond by activating her ability again... then again and again and again. You can effectively pay as much life as you want (in increments of 2) to make that Repay in Kind brutal to the rest of the table.

Here is all of them but for this idea you should go with something that spends life. Selenia, Dark Angel or Vona, Butcher of Magan are interesting options. Selenia is better for enabling combos faster and works great with the likes of Repay in Kind or Transcendence for that matter.

Generally when I win its generally with 30ish cards in hand as once I get Unspeakable Symbol or Doom Whisperer I dig for win cons or I tutor them up and Repay in Kind is the perfect win con in that scenario but I can see why you wouldn't want to add essence as direct damage can be kinda meh way to win. Very rarely do I win with more life then my opponents with a few exceptions as my deck is focused on gaining incremental life just so I can draw more things rather then going to insane life totals.
