Whisper, Blood Liturgist Discussion
1 day ago
First of all, I love your brews, they're an excellent source of inspiration for those of us building in the confines of a budget. Secondly, here are some cool potential additions; Blood Funnel, Demonlord of Ashmouth, Whisper, Blood Liturgist, Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, Krav, the Unredeemed, Genesis Chamber, and Thopter Assembly (for tokens).

Thanks I'll probably end up finding space either a couple of Costly Plunder or Abnormal Endurance. Plunder is hands down better as an all purpose response to bounce/exile but endurance really shines in enabling unexpected trades and triggering etb/death effects. I like Demon of Catastrophes but Whisper, Blood Liturgist is hard justify given the lack of large creatures to recur and its frailty. I know Gravewaker and his ability isn't a great deal either recurring mostly 2-3 mana creatures but in late game mana will likely be more plentiful than creatures.

This looks like a fun mono colored deck. For more card value I'd add in Costly Plunder and I feel like your deck can take advantage of Demon of Catastrophes. Also I'd consider swapping Gravewaker for Whisper, Blood Liturgist.

After doing some play testing (in a 1v1 environment, sadly) I found Whisper, Blood Liturgist to be fairly powerful as a stax piece with Liliana's Specter or Mindslicer and Eternal Witness or Ophiomancer. The reason I say eternal witness is for situations where you have something like Smallpox in grave with two more black producing dorks or a piece of removal so the opp will, essentially, spend their turn doing nothing. In a 1v1 environment, the instant speed reanimation provided by whisper can cut the opponent off of top decking an answer for the lock you create, while also putting things into the grave that you want for the next turn, such as witness or rec sage.
Also, whats your take on Mana Web? obviously in conjunction with Winter Orb it can be very powerful, forcing the opponent into a position where they need to think "okay do i need to respond or do i want my next turn" while also acting as a psudo Arcane Laboratory against other midrange/control decks on its own, I'd love to hear your thoughts on both cards.

Thanks for the reply! Firegriff
I will try to get more synergy.
I have always found Butcher of Malakir interessting, but maybe he has a too high mana cost.
Whisper, Blood Liturgist is a great suggestion and he fits the deck with the theme and sacrifice effect.

Well, there is Butcher of Malakir to be considered. Great for a $0.37 cent card. What you really need for the deck are sac outlets (Bloodthrone Vampire) and cards that benefit from creatures dieing. Like Scavenger Drake. Pawn of Ulamog helps out, too. Basically, you want to benefit from death (the aforementioned Doomed Dissenter) and punish opponents for deaths with cards like Selhoff Occultist or Rage Thrower). Thin out cards that don't care about either their own death or the death of others... Or bring other cards back from the graveyard, such as Whisper, Blood Liturgist

SladeLeStrange As a commander, at least for this deck, she isn't very good. She costs 6 mana, and 3 of it has to be Black. This is important because with a Winter Orb or similar effect in play, most of my mana comes from Artifacts, which usually just makes colorless. Whisper, Blood Liturgist is the commander only because he synergies with my main combo, allowing me to reanimate Necrotic Ooze with Phyrexian Devourer and Triskelion in the graveyard to win. Visara the Dreadful isn't played in the deck because she's slow, but also can only kill one creature per turn rotation. Magus of the Abyss can kill a creature from each of my opponents field, to compare. She also gets shut down by Static Orb or Storage Matrix, whereas Whisper, Blood Liturgist doesn't care, as he only needs to tap once to win. Visara is just too slow and doesn't do enough.
