outlive or overrun
Norn's Annex & Manabarbs are a pain to deal with (the former is sideboarded for versing weenie decks). With Exquisite Blood out, every time they tap a land or (vs nonwhite) attack, I they lose life, I gain life.
The planeswalkers make the deck brutal. Chandra, the Firebrand makes lingering souls and timely reinforcements that much dumber and her ultimate -6 isn't hard to get with a ton of chump blockers. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad 's -2 is too good and Elspeth Tirel has excellent versatility.
I might want to add more control aspects to this deck. I haven't decided or playtested it too much so any opinions would be appreciated.
Check out my Sanctuary - G/W Angel Ramp! Let me know what you think. I added you as a friend. I like just about all your decks haha
Some threats I can see that would hurt your deck are Curse of Death's Hold, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Massacre Wurm, Ratchet Bomb, and Steel Hellkite. I might sideboard a couple Stony Silence and maybe one or two Nevermore
Sooo board wipe. Go figure haha! I'm considering adding Intangible Virtue or something to help acount for that type of thing/speed things up- but nevermore sounds like a good way to go too! Consider it boarded
You could use Blood Artist as a way to gain value off of creatures you chump block with. Not only does it re-fund the life you may have spent to cast said creatures, but it also gives you a way out from a board wipe. It's also quite silly with an Exquisite Blood out.
I liked the suggestion so I swapped 2 suture priests for blood artists. I still don't know how I feel about blood artist. When I play vs it, I just use one spell to kill the artist before I use the board wipe
it seems a little slow to get going, but still a fun idea +1
Blood Artist is a card that has a huge possibility to synergize well with this deck, and it is my favorite card that has come out of its set, and thanks for taking it into consideration. Did you play test it with them yet?
I'd suggest you take out Sorin and put in Isolation Cell.
And holeh balls is this card amazing for you.
Not only does it cause their cards to cost 2 more, if they do pay the mana, they still take the damage thanks to mana barbs <3
I actually was thinking of making a mana barbs deck recently haha.
It's an interesting card, but it'd definitely be a sideboard card, even vs creature decks, I still kinda like card:Norn's Annex. Sorin is too strong of a win condition to take out, though I would consider replacing 1 or 2 with Intangible Virtue ... in fact, I'ma go do that.
