Suture Priest Discussion

acht_deck_manager on What life?

3 days ago

Just some thoughts in case they help build off of what Immortalized said or provide any other useful things to look at:


There are a lot of other draw cards too that you might consider:

And countless more. In a deck like this though there's a lot of value to be had in something like Phyrexian Arena since 1 life per upkeep is no biggie with Oloro around


Here's some other good removal to think about:

Slow Down Taxes

Here are some cards that can really halt your opponent's aggression:

Taxing Creatures

Some other creatures worth mentioning that tax an opponent's life:

Other Notables

Here's some other cards that are worth noting:

  • Pristine Talisman combos well if you have Oloro out (Tap to gain life, spend the mana to draw the card and cost each opponent 1 life)
  • Baleful Strix can be great utility in this kind of deck
  • Reliquary Tower Is always great in draw decks

Additional Thoughts

One card I'd definitely recommend ditching is Azor's Elocutors.

Other cards I see that I'd consider removing if it was me:

I used to play an Oloro deck as well (albeit it with a very different affinity ) using a ton more artifacts and some fun combinations around Darksteel Forge and Nevinyrral's Disk . He's a great commander and a lot of fun. I hope you enjoy the deck and can find something useful in any of my suggestions.

Good luck and happy hunting!

My first comment amateur translate to english //it was writen for czechs casuals players//This is classic lifegain deck using classic soul sisters cards Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant for massive lifegainthat helps Ajani's Pridemate to get lots of counters.I hope to flip of Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip ASAP for powerfull creature and more trigers from sisters on the end of turn.Doomed Traveler he is a great blocker and when it dies,and return as spirit token and provide me another trigger.I know Genesis Chamber create lot's of token for me and for my opponent but it's give me lot of lives from sisters and when is Suture Priest on battlefield,the opponent losse live for every creature who was cast he.When your oponet have lots of Myr tokens it's time to cast Blood Artist and Zealous Persecution

You have a decently solid start! I would recommend taking out Boon Satyr, since he doesn't contribute to your lifegain theme, and maybe throwing in a couple Suture Priests instead.

Good luck with your deck!

@Sargeras-I do play Forbidden Orchard you must have missed it. Also, I used to play white but I cut it for more consistency and because I didn't play much white. I was only using Suture Priest and path so I removed it leaving one Godless Shrine and four Forbidden Orchard and so I kept white on the sideboard. In regard of Dizzy Spell: I like the idea of finding illness more easily but I don't want to play four mana for it and the deck can function without illness. Maelstrom Pulse provides token removal while still being useful without the hunteds. I am debating over whether to put back in some of the cards you noted above for white. Thank you for your suggestions!

I haven't seen a Blood Illness list in quite some time, so +1 for bringing back such a unique build! (It never really left the kitchen table but it was fun)

A couple suggestions,

Forbidden Orchard: It was used in the old lists as a way to achieve easy mana fixing while giving yourself plenty to things to kill with Illness in the Ranks

Since you aren't using white (which would give you access to Twilight Drover, Suture Priest, Zealous Persecution, and Orzhov Pontiff) I'd recommend playing some kind of direct tutor effect to get you illness or a hunted creature, (I don't know exactly what, I know Dizzy Spell is the only transmute for a one drop it's just an idea) simply to improve consistency.

In any case it's nice to see an older deck brought back, Cheers!

Hey! The core of the deck looks good! Suture Priest is a really good card in general.

I think that the Soul Sisters would fit well into the deck, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, and their cousin, Essence Warden.

If you are forcing tokens to ETB, Akroan Horse helps with that. Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite is pricey, but kills all tokens while still letting ETBs trigger.

You could potentially cut the Path to Exiles and Suture Priests for Fatal Pushes / Dismembers and some card advantage, maybe Serum Visions. This would allow you to free up your mana base a bit more as you don't have to run white in the deck.
