MrDimir you can sacrifice Dryad Arbor to Sylvan Safekeeper, then recur the Arbor with Meren :) also this is not the type of deck that wants ritual effects really; that is more appropriate in all in combo like Varolz Hulk.

MagicMasterJr basically what Frostman1255 said. On top of what was mentioned, we can't run any of the Hulk hate (Grafdigger's Cage, Cursed Totem, etc) because it hits us too, and on top of that, we get hit by the Hulk hate that more people are starting to play because of the new metagame.

artificium nothing from THB. The deck is essentially dead now though due to Thassa's Oracle and the ubiquity of Fish Hulk decks.

The deck is already playing enough cards that are dead outside of combo, I do not want to be playing more. The whole point of this build was to maximize individual card quality. Blood Artist is a bad card, period. It requires you to already have a sac outlet, a payoff, and enough creatures in order to make it good.

Infinite squirrels already wins on the spot - make infinite life with Plunge into Darkness and use fast mana to assemble an unbeatable board state, Mindslicer them, or when all else fails manually assemble the Hulk combo.

Frostfang is infinitely better than Blood Artist.

daishi777 the card is dead on its own and doesnt fit neatly into a hulk pile.

milivert no, not at all. the problem with spark double is it's only ever good when yuriko is out; it can't ever copy your opponent's best creature. Sakashima can copy anything.

milivert I don't ever plan on casting Emrakul; if the game has gotten that for it's been too long. Draco is better because sometimes it's a 2 card 32 damage combo. All the equipment you listed are slow and mana intensive. Dowsing Dagger is especially bad since it gives one person blockers.

stingerthewingnut yes, 7 mana is a lot and I think largely unnecessary. I cut it for more interaction, which I feel is more important.

calebedward those two cards were in the deck for a long time but weren't performing. 5 mana is really a lot and you need an established board state of non-ninjas for the cards to be good. i have not missed them since cutting them.

XinZhao no, that card is terrible.
