How about Tainted Remedy then? It also combos nicely with Arbiter of Knollridge (if you happen to have the most life,) but if you’re playing against their life gain decks it will definitely help you in that race.

I appreciate the feedback! I don't really want the Hellrider because it doesn't really provide my opponent with a choice. In addition, I find myself not being super aggressive with attacking either, and some times I can't at all if I have Ensnaring Bridge or Meekstone out. I was thinking of an Erebos or Tainted Remedy but I'm not sure if I want something that stops me from gaining life. Exquisite Blood and the altar help keep me alive to torture a little longer. I also just discovered Demanding Dragon so I'm going to have to figure out what to switch out for it.

I always appreciate feedback and suggestions, especially since there isn't a keyword or string of words that I can search to find more choice cards.

Very cool. Maybe a Hellrider?? Other than that I'm pretty much with Epicuris. Oh and maybe any of the cards in black and or red that keep your opponent's from gaining life. Tainted Remedy Forsaken Wastes Erebos, God of the Dead and the new tibalt. Life gainers suck.

if you want to have fun and cock block other life gain decks, i suggest Tainted Remedy + Wall of Shards. your mana curve does seem to be a little on the heavier side though without mana dorks. you have 15 cards that are more than 3 mana which is steep considering the fact that the faster side is only 20 cards. i assume gray merchant and bond is your win con here. assuming you get all the mana, you wouldnt be able to pull it off before turn 6. modern should typically run a turn 4 win, unless you have a way to stall with counter spells and kill cards to remove important pieces of your opponents win con. something like Leaden Myr may help with the speed of your higher cost cards. provides optional fodder too.

Pristine Talisman works well with Oloro if he's on the board. Tap the talisman for and gain a life. The life gain triggers Oloro, use the floating to pay into Oloro and draw a card. Talisman essentially becomes ": Draw a card."

Tainted Remedy and Beacon of Immortality to one-shot someone.

Play Mirage Mirror.

Magicaids on Alternate Win-Cons Kenrith

with Kenrith there is a card that is not a win con but acts like one with him in play it is. but that is up to you i know that you want as many alt-win cons as you can. but a fun idea as well is Tainted Remedy. The best way to set it up is to use ether Training Grounds Heartstone or Biomancer's Familiar. then you need to have Composite Golem ether in the graveyard or in play and you will have infinite mana of every color but black by just reanimate him with kenrith and do it over and over and then with any card with a death trigger that pings for 1 or you give any player five life with tainted remedy out it will kill them by draining 5 life from them and not you. as well ask help with other stuff. overall you if have any question about anything just ask i may not have explained it very well. i love the deck and am staring to put and alt-win con deck together as well +1 from me and keep up the good work love it
