Replacing Bosk Banneret with Heartwood Storyteller as I need more draw. Finally got my hands on a Tree of Perdition which will replace Bane of Progress and Utter End which will replace Sylvan Scrying

Trying to get a Nature's Lore which will replaces something in this deck

I do agree on cutting Crypt Rats, as it's a very mana intensive combo in deck that has limited mana resources. The fact that it requires only black mana is also a huge limitation, as you can't use any infinite colourless mana.

I could give a shot to Tree of Perdition, it sounds better than I thought according to your experience.

Let me know about Yawgmoth's Will, because it's a card that I'm seriously considering for my list.

From Tree of Perdition and Tree of Redemption

Sap of an Unknown Tree


Choose a player at random, that player loses 5 life.


When you cycle Sap from an unknown tree, you gain 5 life.

I'd like another card with cycling.

Without some type of combo, a blink deck will generally only win in a casual play group where people aren’t winning very quickly. My Mairsil, the Pretender deck is basically a blink deck. The deck has a card that doesn’t involve an infinite combo, Tree of Perdition to set their life total to 4... usually gets the job done.

But moral of the story, the combo doesn’t have to be infinite. But if there’s no combo at all in the blink deck, it’s probably a bad deck.

Gidgetimer on Combo that doesn't work

An example for each from the ones I have gone through. Let me know if my reasoning is still not clear or if you disagree with any of them.

NSI- Cathars' Crusade and Inexorable Tide. Cathars' Crusade gives counters. Inexorable Tide proliferates. They work well together, but don't really interact.

SE- Deputy of Acquittals and Dream Stalker. They have the same effect and that effect does not provide any unusual advantage with multiples. I guess this is a subreason of NSI, but I have seen it often enough that it feels like it might be something to take note of as a way people are misusing the combo syntax. Just making a list of cards that have the same or similar effects.

MI- Korozda Guildmage and Neheb, the Eternal and Tree of Perdition. This code would be used exclusively for "combos" with three or more pieces. Korozda Guildmage and Tree of Perdition have a synergistic interaction. Neheb, the Eternal and Tree of Perdition have a synergistic interaction. The three cards together do not have a further interaction than the two separate two card interactions.

@jager69 - yep! I'm really going to add that to my deck.. I haven't been able to get one yet, because of my busy schedule.. but thanks!

@RalZarek77 - Glory Bearers is not good imo.. It doesn't do anything on its own, and for 4 mana creature, Tree of Perdition or Indomitable Ancients are way better.. and Athreos, Shroud-Veiled is kinda slow.. 6 mana that can protect one permanent on your end step, which can be solved by one opponent casting 2-3 mana single removal spell.. Also being indestructible, it's going to be hard to remove, and when I have no creatureson my battlefield due to a mass removal spell, I'm going to be forced to put coin counters on enemies creatures, since there's no "may" in it's triggered ability.. It's great for politics though, I'll give it that.. Grasping Giant is interesting enough.. I'll think about that.. Thanks for the suggestions!

Tree of Perdition's life exchanging effect causes the victim to gain or lose life to the total, and will trigger Archfiend of Depravity and Wound Reflection.

Archfiend of Depravity and Wound Reflection trigger EACH end step and do not care why an opponent lost life or if they gained life later in the turn. Ex. You have either card out. Bob plays a shockland untapped and attacks George for 5 damage with lifelink. On Bob's endstep he loses 2 life, and George loses 5 life.

Archfiend of Depravity and Wound Reflection will also count the loss of life that one causes to the amount the other causes if both are out. Ex: 5 damage, 1st trigger 5 life, 2nd trigger 10 life.
