Idyllic Tutor Actually isnt that bad of an Idea. It'd definitely help to get some winning combos out; however, I've never been a big fan of Vampiric Tutor because of it goes on top rather than In hand. It Is a good card though, so adding it might be a good idea, eveb if It's just in the sideboard. Two life isnt anything when comparing it to what I've seen this deck do.
In response to Ob Nixilis Reignited I just feel like he wouldn't fit well within the deck. I've ran him in some other decks and I've never been a big fan.
Cliffhaven Vampire and Defiant Bloodlord are cards that would totally be worth adding into the deck! It'd definitely allow me to focus more on the combo. A Demonic Tutor wouldn't hurt either. Having that extra tutor never hurts.
Thank you all for the suggestions. I'll look into making so adjustments. The feed back helps tremendously.

The 2 life should be negligible with the all the life gain and if it helps you get infinite life it's totally moot. Also, since its instant speed you can cast it on the other person's end step right before your turn so no one can sorcery-speed mill it. Idyllic Tutor is solid but obviously has less range, as Vampiric can grab other things you may need. Cool build.

That's very true! Honestly I hadn't thought about the instant speed affect. That's definitely an upside to the card. I'm still working on a couple edits, taking out, and adding a few cards, but I'll definitely look into adding it in. Thanks :)

HunterClaise how does the combo work? Paying life is not the same thing as damage, which is what Purity prevents. Activating Necropotence's ability with Purity doesn't gain you life, because it's life payment, which isn't damage.

Actually you are correct. The combo wouldn't work nearly as well as I thought it would, as I thought Purity read, "If noncombat damage would be dealt to you, prevent that damage. You gain life equal to the life lost this way." It'd be super epic if the combo could get pulled off. I might have to look into finding a card to combo with Necropotence!

No need to find a card that combos with Necropotence; it already combos with your library. :P

Necropotence is definitely one of favorite cards in magic. It's affect is wild, and I love it's art. Mark Tedin is just such a fantastic artist.

but if you are screwed if someone is playing Angel of Jubilation

Is it a reason to why so few edh players in WB plays Deathbringer Liege? I think it would be a fantstic removal and boost to your creatures.

If you looking to combo off I'd recommend Solitary Confinement & Glacial Chasm which can buy you time while you assemble your combo pieces, Replenish is also probably the best recovery card if you lose some of your pieces. Tainted Remedy combos with Beacon of Immortality as another option and Hatred is a one shot kill with lifelink or commander damage.

I play a similar deck with Oloro. This is giving me some new ideas.
March 25, 2017 11:57 p.m.
With all your life gain, and spell potential, have you looked into Aetherflux Reservoir?

Hahaha (crying face emoji) there is soo much text as I was going through the spoiler that says "gain life" lmao! If I could upvote this more then once I would +1 upvote from me love it. Great work!
