Sever the Bloodline Discussion

ScrOuch Thanks for leaving some feedback for me!

Good call on the Phyrexian Delver it's been really strong.

Body Snatcher isn't a great flicker target, though if i run more sac outlets it might be better.

Dictate of Erebos isn't quite budget enough for me, I really like that the entire deck is under $50. This way when folks see it play out i can tell them the idea and that the deck could be upgraded as well

Outpost Siege is right on theme though i'm not sure what to cut for it

I think Impact Tremors is possibly win more? I'm not heavy in tokens and if i'm combo'ing with Peregrine Drake i should be able to win another way.

Blood Artist doesn't trigger on flickers, but it is a good card and in multiplayer games creatures die and i'll get value. I think I want to commit to the theme of flicker over good stuff additions right now though

Goblin Bombardment and Ashnod's Altar are good though i'm not to sure they will be strong enough if i don't add the dictate. Also the commander isn't the focus of the deck so adding things just for him seems loose IMO

LVL_666 Thanks for all your suggestions! Lets dive in,

Rune-Scarred Demon is out of budget range. It's not that I don't have it, I do, I just want to run the entire deck under $50. So that means missing out on Dictate of Erebos and the demon but adding Dreamscape Artist and Sire of Stagnation

Noxious Gearhulk I think i want to add, even with the price tag$. All my creature kill now can't kill black creatures and I kinda want more life gain and this card works on both levels. What's better though, Noxious Gearhulk or Inferno Titan???

Vial Smasher the Fierce dosen't fit the theme and is almost a good stuff addition, so I'll pass for now.

Crater Hellion, Ratchet Bomb and Sever the Bloodline are sweet anti token measures, here is what i was thinking Devastation Tide. It deals with the tokens, enchantments, planswalkers, and other unbeatable positions I could find myself in. What do you think?

quitrage Thanks for the bringing some sweet ideas to the table

Dance of the Dead I want to add, though i'm not sure i can think of the cut for it, any thoughts?

Twilight's Call, Champion of Stray Souls and Diabolic Servitude I've played before and didn't really like them. Those were different decks though, so I'll keep them in mind while playing this one.

Hey the deck looks pretty fun, here's some ideas for re-animation that brings them straight to the battlefield rather than your hand so you can get the ETB effect.

Dance of the Dead

Twilight's Call

Champion of Stray Souls

Diabolic Servitude

also for dealing with tokens the card you recommended for my deck, Sever the Bloodline seems like it could do rather well in yours as well.

Hey thanks for the feedback!

I really like Laquatus's Creativity and Whispering Madness since they're like a Forgotten Creation that I don't have to wait for the effect to trigger on, plus the cipher option on Whispering Madness is nice for the flexibility.

I initially had Deep Analysis and Sever the Bloodline in my first draft of this list but ended up cutting them for other cards. I still really want to include Sever the Bloodline as it is pretty decent removal and the flashback option is great, but I'm not sure what I would cut at the moment. I don't know how I missed Cackling Counterpart when building this, I'll have to figure out what I'm dropping but I definitely want to add him in so thanks for that suggestion.

I'm not too keen on Greenwarden of Murasa due to his CMC and the fact that he's $1.00 at the moment. I would definitely include him if it brought them to the battlefield instead of my hand, is there anything like him that does that I'm not already running?

Bitter Revelation and Mental Note seem a bit underwhelming to me, I feel like it's kinda like a less impactful Tracker's Instincts/Commune with the Gods/Forbidden Alchemy/Grisly Salvage but having a few more similar options might be good. I'll have to play the deck a few times and get a feel before I decide on that.

I 100% agree on Chronic Flooding, I like that it's more controlled and you don't have to worry about it decking you too much, gonna swap those out for each other.

I kinda feel the same about Corpse Churn as I did with Mental Note ect above, still I'll have to test the deck a few times to see if it needs more recurring options of that kind.

Embalmer's Tools was another card I had in the first draft of this list that I ended up cutting, it's another card I definitely want to include but am not sure what to cut, probably going to end up dropping Blossoming Wreath as you suggested earlier as I agree that it's not that impactful/worth taking up a slot so I might put it in to replace that.

Fact or Fiction and Epiphany at the Drownyard are both great cards, just need to make room for them, probably going to drop Feldon's Cane since I wont be as worried about decking myself without Curse of the Bloody Tome to make room for one of these.

Extractor Demon is already in the list haha, but yeah very good.

I'm liking Gather the Pack probably going to drop something like Wreath of Geists because I feel like there's already enough options for +x/+x per creature in graveyard in the deck already but we'll see.

Thanks again for the feedback.

"If you have a good ETB creature or a clever way of dealing with tokens I'd love to hear it. Thanks!"

Here are some creatures that came to mind that have clever ETB triggers. They may not exactly be within your budget, but can be good to keep in mind if they come up for a trade:

  • Rune-Scarred Demon - can provide all your tutoring needs for each flicker

  • Noxious Gearhulk - can be removal on a stick as long as you flicker him

  • Vial Smasher the Fierce - as you cast spells he can passively smack someone in the face. I'll admit I have a bias when it comes to this little guy though, as I run him in one of my own decks. But he's fun none the less.

So when it comes to dealing with tokens, the first idea I had was Engineered Explosives for 0. That is a tailor made approach right there. But is rather pricey. So the following are other possibilities within your budget:

  • Crater Hellion - within your theme of ETB creatures, and kills all tokens toughness 4 or lower.

  • Ratchet Bomb - within budget, and can kill all tokens when you don't tap it to add counters.

  • Sever the Bloodline - potentially reusable within your deck, as it has good sorcery and instant recursion.

Hope these suggestions help. Also, very cool concept for a deck. So it gets a +1 from me.

Laquatus's Creativity, Whispering Madness and could be nice to get the mill going

Cackling Counterpart, Deep Analysis and Sever the Bloodline could be good because of flashback

Greenwarden of Murasa could be good, maybe over crop sigil

Mental Note could be clever

Bitter Revelation

Chronic Flooding seems better than the curse of the bloody tome

Corpse Churn

The new explore creatures form Ixalan could be good as well

Embalmer's Tools could be a clever way to mill yourself to hit creatures and create an army

Fact or Fiction and Epiphany at the Drownyard are good card draw with synergy

Extractor Demon seems good

Gather the Pack seems cool

Possibily cut feldon's cane, with elixir of immortality you have alot of inevibility

maybe blossoming wreath as well, gnaw to the bone does more work and having spells just gain you life aren't worth it a lot of the times IMO

I haven't had good expirences with temple of the false good, maybe cut for Rogue's Passage for a go tall creature?

This is a really sweet deck! Very budget and looks like it plays out in fun and unique ways each game. I really like tinkering with budget decks, as you can probably guess, and I am currently working of a couple of my own. If you have the chance maybe check them out? Un-FLICKING-believable!!!!!!!!!! is my newest. Thanks and keep building budget brews!

I feel like the obvious answer is add red for Crumble to Dust and Sowing Salt but that would probably make tron have no chance.

Along lines that might be better for balance, maybe Sinkhole and replace Archfiend of Depravity with Anowon, the Ruin Sage since tron only wants one thing out anyway. I would also consider cutting Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger for some other large colorless creature that is still scary but isn't so oppressive, or you could add in some of the black exile spells like Hour of Glory or Sever the Bloodline.

My favorite color and tribe as well, though my vamp EDH deck is Mardu. Here are some suggestions.

Cavern of Souls is main deck playable in any tribal deck.

Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic are good lords. And Baron Sengir is a big beater that protects your vamps. Shauku, Endbringer is worth considering just for her exile ability.

Urza's Incubator makes them cheaper.

Vampiric Rites and Call the Bloodline are flavorful and work well together.

Sever the Bloodline is flavorful and good removal.

Patriarch's Bidding is good defense against wipes.

If you have the card, yes. It's an amazing card and it can deal with a token swarm or if an opponent has a nasty creature out and another opponent Clones it then it can deal with both or even better if someone kicks Rite of Replication you aren't totally screwed. But if you don't already have the card its not worth the price tag when there are so many cards that can still be good in the slot. You could always run cards that do similar things like Sever the Bloodline but I like the versatility of being able to get rid of an enchantment or artifact that is troubling me since that is often blacks biggest issue.
