Vizkopa Guildmage Discussion

Gim on Oloro Homebrew

Crested Sunmare is an auto-include in any Oloro deck. Such a good card.

If you're looking to have a fairly interactive deck with Oloro at the helm, I recommend any creature that does things when you gain life. Oloro naturally pushes you in the direction of control, which is fine for some, but I think something more along the lines of midrange is more fun for a newer player as I have found from personal experience. Archangel of Thune , Angel of Vitality , Serra Avatar , Drogskol Reaver , and Resplendent Angel are all great examples of these types of cards. Karlov of the Ghost Council is also an amazing card that is easily abused in Oloro.

If you're looking for more lifegain and drain stuff, Kambal, Consul of Allocation is a really good one, as is Vizkopa Guildmage , Suture Priest , Twilight Prophet , and Exsanguinate .

I can't really think of anything else off the top of my head but from one Oloro player to another, I hope you have fun.

Looks pretty good. I think you should definitely find room for Vizkopa Guildmage . You can activate her second ability multiple times (even in response to the first lifegain trigger), resulting in huge drains for every life gained during the turn!

You might like these too: Storage Matrix , Uba Mask , Angel's Trumpet , Regna, the Redeemer , Sunbond , Cradle of Vitality , Slaughter , Dingus Staff , Ethereal Absolution , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Angelic Accord , Resplendent Angel , Revival, Syphon Mind

With all this life gain, it’s fun to drain your opponents by paying Vizkopa Guildmage second ability multiple times.

Ooh Beacon of Immortality , And Celestial Mantle !

I play a very strange Oloro combo deck if you wanna check it out.

squadcarxmar on Teysa, Orzhov Scion: life and death

I'd trade out Exsanguinate and put in a Debt to the Deathless . I run it over Exsanguinate in my Teysa because I don't mainboard my Darkest Hour and it helps me close out games still. So even if your Darkest Hour is getting countered/exiled/whatever you can have an easier time winning with that. If you slap a Illusionist's Bracers on your Vizkopa Guildmage it makes this even more insane. And Bracers is also already good on Teysa trading 3 tokens for 2 creatures rather than 1. Say you spend 7 mana on Debt, 3 on Vizkopa with Bracers, with 3 opponents in the game. That's 3 on Debt for 6 life but you'll gain 18 then Vizkopa activates twice and they lose 36. That's 42 life loss to each opponent. It can also work well whenever you gain a lot of life in a turn like Soul Warden and a token dump.

I would run Carnival of Souls since you already have Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant and if both are out, it's free black mana whenever creatures hit.
I'd trade a boardwipe for Merciless Eviction because it can handle indestructible and hexproof creatures with exile. The only downside is worrying about a counterspell. Also, maybe Storm Herd in place of Increasing Devotion ? I don't know how fast the decks you play against are but if you mana ramp enough Storm Herd usually has more value. Also consider Black Market for mana ramp in a Teysa deck.

I know I'm suggesting a lot but wanted you to consider some of your options, I know some of my suggestions don't really have something directly to take out with them. This deck seems very good and competitive I'd say.

Exquisite Blood will give you a secondary win can using Vizkopa Guildmage secondary ability and comboing that to infinity. Dimir Infiltrator Muddle the Mixture Shred Memory Can help you tutor the guildmage. Brainspoil can help you tutor the enchant.

Zur's Weirding might be good here. Also, Cradle of Vitality with big lifelink creatures seems stronk! And last but not least, Vizkopa Guildmage is surprisingly deadly in lifegain decks. You can activate her ability multiple times, creating a stacking Sanguine Bond effect (except even better than Bond since it hits all opponents).

Exquisite Blood also goes infinite with Defiant Bloodlord and Vizkopa Guildmage ... Not bad. Suggestions for what to replace? Chesu
