Creature — Demon

Delve (Each card you exile from your graveyard while casting this spell pays for .)

If a creature card with flying was exiled with Soulflayer's delve ability, Soulflayer has flying. The same is true for first strike, double strike, deathtouch, haste, hexproof, indestructible, lifelink, reach, trample, and vigilance.

I dont know any that steal them from the grave other than what you mentioned but Odric, Lunarch Marshal does something similar.

As for things with a lot of keywords Chromanticore, Drogskol Reaver, and Zetalpa, Primal Dawn are usually in Soulflayer decks.

Yesterday on Looking for cards which share/steal ...

Hey folks. As usual, I'd appreciate some help because I suck at using card searches.

I'm looking for cards like Cairn Wanderer, Death-Mask Duplicant, Soulflayer. Ones that steal or share keyword abilities from other creature cards.

A different question but on a related note, I'm also not sure how to look up 'keyword soup' creatures which basically have a lot of keywords printed on them, other than looking up each combination of keywords individually and finding which creatures share them and as many others as possible, which would take approximately forever.

I hate basically asking people to look stuff up for me but I'm really not sure which terms I'm meant to use to find such cards.

Thanks in advance.

HashMasta on Exalted Deck W/B

just as an idea, you could try using exalted with something like Soulflayer with filling up graveyard with ability creatures such as Drogskol Reaver, Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Gurmag Swiftwing, Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Akroma, Angel of Wrath and stuff like that.

mix in doublestrike, lifelink, haste, hexproof, bla bla with exalted and you got a pretty tough creature to deal with.

I would try and use things like Zombie Infestation to fill up graveyard and keep a good board state for when needed.

some other key things I think this needs is probably a Victim of Night instead of your murder. just cause not many popular creatures are those types. or you could use Go for the Throat. also since you run orzhov, Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking are gonna be great cause they target all permanents except unmaking targets nonland sad sad

as your lands go, would always go for dual lands when 2-color and above. Caves of Koilos, Scoured Barrens, Orzhov Guildgate are your more budget ones. Marsh Flats and Godless Shrine do have a bit of a price on them but its cause they are good. however if you do not wanna spend that kinda money stick with the budget ones. will do just fine.

if you do try the whole Soulflayer discard idea, would also try and get a Lingering Souls for some back up defense and cards like it.

would also go for some hand disruption spells. even a simple Duress would do in a meta like this (though not my first recomendation) Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are the best right now and would get those when have the chance.

I know it is a lot, but just some ideas to try and help. Happy brewing! :)

Soulflayer is probably one of my favorite recent card. Props for building a fun deck around it +1

Darth_Savage Ive actually considered Victim of Night! The double black casting cost scares me a little to be consistent on turn 3-4 and Soulflayer is prerty cool but I honesty think it deserves a little more all in build but i am considering Tombstalker as a finisher

What about Bile Blight, Smother or Victim of Night rather than Doom Blade, all are decent removal and probably less limited, but they are still situational. If you weren't running delve creatures I'd suggest Murderous Cut, while on the subject of delve I'd suggest Soulflayer since your playing the Nighthawk it could be nasty.

Noticed your lack of haste guys, that really makes a huge difference. Samut, Voice of Dissent, Hazoret the Fervent i run these two in my version and the haste really helps

my version is jund, 4Soulflayer 3Samut, Voice of Dissent, 3Hazoret the Fervent, 4Vampire Nighthawk, 4Birds of Paradise, 4Sylvan Caryatid, 3Thrun, the Last Troll (oracle text has hexproof), 2Collective Brutality, 2Lightning Axe, 4Grisly Salvage, 4Faithless Looting, 2Abrupt Decay the rest lands 10 of em fetchlands

sometimes i can go the midrange game and just power out hazoret and thrun while they still have to fight my gy.

i have a Ground Seal in the side to prevent surgical on a soulflayer.also run Big Game Hunter in the side.
