Sever the Bloodline Discussion

To make it less reliant on your general try adding reanimator, Buried Alive, Animate Dead, Necromancy, Reanimate, Entomb, Dread Return, Deathrender

For mana ramp/fixing, add Armillary Sphere, Wayfarer's Bauble, Burnished Hart.

You should run more board wipes, Blasphemous Act, Oblivion Stone -- Sever the Bloodline, isn't a board wipe, but I'm a fan of this card for spot removal.. sometimes it catches opponents off guard for its flashback ability.

Try running Peat Bog and Sandstone Needle, I run the Peat Bog and Saprazzan Skerry in my Lazav deck. It helps, but I also run Crucible of Worlds...

I would personally recommend Ashes to Ashes or Sever the Bloodline, but if you already have Silence the Believers, then I would agree with that change.

In multiplayer EDH, Night's Whisper, Ambition's Cost, etc. aren't great. Repeatable draw like Phyrexian Arena, Erebos, God of the Dead, and Greed are better.

An often overlooked creature that I've found useful is Pilgrim's Eye. It gives you an evasive creature to enable a T4 Rakdos while also helping to color fix your mana, and it can hold a Sword of X and Y if you include any of them later on.

From my own experience I'd suggest not to run dudes for the sake of being huge beatsticks or have an underwhelming ETB, instead try to focus on utility creatures and effects with lasting usefulness. For example, after the initial ETB trigger on Bogardan Hellkite it's just a vanilla 5/5 flyer that can be chumped by a Baleful Strix or a random spirit token. So try Inferno Titan or Dragon Mage because they can provide value turn after turn.

Also don't run creatures you can't answer. If an opponent casts Bribery to steal your Blightsteel Colossus, what do you do? I ran Blightsteel until that very thing happened to me and I immediately removed it. My meta has some casual people who even run Mind Control effects, so I don't run anything I can't answer myself. If you like Blightsteel (who doesn't?), throw in Ashes to Ashes, Sever the Bloodline, or Silence the Believers so you have a way to remove it that also isn't specific to that one creature.

I think this question was asking about after the creature is on the battlefield.

I believe the answer to that is since the token produced has no name then only the initial creature would be exiled and not any other Angel tokens, plus Sever the Bloodline does not prevent later iterations of the creature it initially targets from entering the battlefield.

A card like Nevermore would prevent a spell from being cast.

Sever the Bloodline only exiles creatures that are on the battlefield, so if your opponent gains 4 life with Angelic Accord in play they will still get an Angel. Nothing about Sever the Bloodline stops other angels from coming into play afterwards, it only exiles all creatures with the same name that are in play.

He's using an Angelic Accord, and he gained 4 life. He then able to summon a token. Then I casted Sever the Bloodline, would he still be able to summon token when he gains 4 life?
