I do not. I just write them and send them to Drake.

He has yet to actually use my material....

hey there, nice looking deck. +1. I just built a similar mono- one recently.

So what about Night's Whisper instead of Read the Bones? it has no scrying, but is , thus easier to cast than Sign in Blood.

Also, what about Victim of Night instead of Doom Blade, at least in your sideboard? depending on your meta, Victim might hit more targets, although it is slightly harder to cast at .

Also also, pauper is the best format ever. EVER! Thank-you for also allowing this to be a pauper support club thread. =D

I have bunch of "pet" cards, each one of which I am obsessed with, and will never stop sneaking into random decks.

Here's are just a few:

Armor Thrull is the best card ever printed. No wonder they banned it in Modern.

Myth Realized is another good one that I will one day break. Or it will break me.

Also, Otherworldly Outburst is quickly becoming a new favorite of mine in pauper. A free 3/2 when your red chump inevitably dies? There is nothing better.

thanks a lot! =D

excellent work here. thanks for making this!

If you don't mind, I'd like to add this to my collection of resources, The Obscure List of Obscure Lists.

Hello again, rulers of TappedOut.

This time I am trying to edit (update) my list of lists and each time I try I get a site-error, with Ornithopters and all that.

Is it because of a max-character limit? I tried to shorten the OP and still got an error...

Is it because of the age of the thread? Perhaps it's all the funky coding in the usernames? idk.

I'm wondering if there's anything anyone can do to help, or offer advice. If need to maintain several, new, smaller threads, then okay. But if the original thread can be saved, then, that would be cool.

Thanks for your time, whoever responds. =)

RubyOrzhov: no prob. that's what I'm here for. ...to let you know Deadbridge Chant exists... lol

March 19, 2017 10:52 p.m.

Anarrandir: sorry for the late response, but no thanks necessary. Thank YOU for making the list and letting me share it. =)

As for Epoch's lists, I was originally opposed to adding "real" lists, I wanted to keep everything "obscure." But lately I've been considering just putting ALL the resources I can find in this list. Since you seem to agree, others probably will too, so I'll be adding them all soon, thanks for your advice!

I was wondering if it is possible to have a thread reopened? This one, to be precise.

Or I could just make a new one, whatever is preferred. Thanks in advance! =)

Serra Avenger x2 or x3 sounds like a good idea.

For hubs, I would add "artifacts," maybe change "control" to "aggro" or "tempo" (which is basically being able to adapt an aggro or control strategy on the fly, depending on your opponent's moves), add "humans," maybe "multiplayer," add "theme/gimmick," and if you got room after all that, then fuggit, add "voltron" too, lol.

As for the deck, for starters, I recommend 4x Trained Caracal as your one-drop. In exchange, lose the 4x Cloudshift because none of your creatures really benefit from "blink" effects. Plus they'll be all so beefed up from your "communal voltron" strategy, that you prolly won't need to rescue them during combat often.

You could also drop Relic Seeker entirely because Odric doesn't copy Renown for you. Instead add +1 Knight of the White Orchid (or swap out some knights for some aforementioned Serra Avengers). That leaves one empty "slot" in your deck. So do -2 White Sun's Zenith & -1 Mirran Crusader and add +4 Aerial Responder.

Finally, -2 Great Teacher's Decree and +2 more Odric, Lunarch Marshal. You definitely want to have more than one of him, because he is what will push your creatures over the edge and make them hard to deal with.

Notice how I focused on giving you at least a playset (x4) each of a 1-drop, 2-drop and a 3-drop. That is important to consider when deckbuilding because, as it stands now, your deck has no real turn-one play it can make. Having 1-drop creatures changes that.

That concludes my lesson for the day. Now it's eyes2sky's turn. =P

great article, as always. Keep it up! =)

It does look like we are missing a sentence at the end of a paragraph towards the end, the one in which you mention the cards Torpor Orb, Hushwing Gryff, Illness in the Ranks and Virulent Plague.

March 9, 2017 6:46 p.m.

ok, today I added:

  1. a list by Karns_Pyromancer to the "Any Format" section
  2. one by Anarrandir to "EDH" section
  3. one more by Snips500 to "Pauper" section

Also, Snips500, 4th button in from right, above the text-box when you post. The one that looks like two chain links. Copy the desired http address, then paste it into the pop-up when you click the link button. Viola! An off-site link. =)

Nice list, thanks for making this!

I'm adding this to my Obscure List of Obscure Lists, because that's what I do. =D

Nice first solo-build. Good job. =)

I would suggest that in addition to the Mono-Black and Vampires hubs, you also mark it as Lifegain, Suicide Black and possibly Discard/Madness, cuz why not? You get more "exposure" on your deck by listing it under more hubs.

Also, Blood+ is the name of a decent anime... about vampires. Did you know that? Or is that just a happy coincidence?
