Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter Discussion

brian.olson542 on Will It Sac?

There really isn't a lot to add here, but I would suggest Gift of Immortality. It works as part of an infinite loop (say with Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter and any other creature).

I'd also throw in Grand Abolisher to stop people from countering your plays on your turn. There is a ton of blue in my meta and I would want to be able to stop it in its tracks.

What ramp are you running? Orzhov is always slow to get going and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter is super costly.

Otherwise, great job. I used to play a Vish Kal deck, and this list inspires me to build one again. Thanks for that.

Mikaeus, the Lunarch :D Free counters on everything every turn. Gavony Township also.

Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter and Retribution of the Ancients for repeat removal.

I'd also suggest swapping Mortify and Putrefy for Beast Within and Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, or Vindicate. Just generally better removal spells. Maybe Sylvan Reclamation or Return to Dust if you need a lot of enchantment/artifact removal.

Karlov of the Ghost Council Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter These colors are ok for fiddling with counters

Animar, Soul of Elements This commandeer is meh for counters, the colors get some options.

Varolz, the Scar-Striped Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest Reyhan, Last of the Abzan These are some of your heavy hitters with counters.

Ghave, Guru of Spores Daghatar the Adamant The colors are just about the best in-terms of counters, and both can play with their counters.

Atraxa, Praetors' Voice it's Atraxa.... she's Op and gives you every color for counters.

Look into "wither" "infect" "Proliferate"

has quite a bit of wither support, but no commanders that outwardly support it. is a helpful resource

You can't do w/b tokens without Teysa, Orzhov Scion. End of story. That said, some awesome interactions with her that I had in my w/b deck in its early stages were Skeletal Vampire, Twilight Drover, and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter

Personally, I would drop Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter out of it. It barely fits with what yo are trying to do, and there are many cards that do it better.

Unless both commanders have partner like Ravos, Soultender // Tymna the Weaver you can only choose one creature to be your commander. Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter is the only legendary black white vampire, you could consider using him

man, I've versed and defeated like pretty much all of these commanders with a Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter EDH, it suprises me with all of these lists, yes i get they're generally what sees play in EDH competative pods, but they're still really easy to defeat.
