To be honest, the token strat might be good right now while people are trying out new cards like Solitude .

To make the deck a better choice, you would probably need to be faster. The best way to go about this would be having less lands that come in tapped. If you have the resources, fetchlands and shocklands would be really helpful towards this.

As it stands though, I count a 67 card deck which isn't great for finding the cards you need when you need them. Definitely trim that down towards the minimum 60 the best you can.

Cards to consider adding (assuming you can make room for these) could be Bastion of Remembrance and Grave Pact . Even something lkke Smallpox is worth considering since it will probably hurt an opponent more than you.

There's probably more I could suggest, but I want to see where you go from here. A helpful resource to use for finding cards is because you can search for things like abilities or even phrases like when something dies, etc. Good luck out there.

Do you think Bastion of Remembrance can enter this list?

Hi tearrow,you can use Spark Harvest instead of Bone Splinters . What do you think about Bastion of Remembrance ? you have one soldier for sacrifice and an another "blood artist's effect". Another cards that you can use are Perilous Myr , Poison-Tip Archer , Bone Picker , Butcher Ghoul .

ChrisHansonBiomancin thanks for the help! I think maybe you’re right about having too many sac outlets and not enough stuff to sac. With that said, do you have any ideas as to something in black the consistently creates tokens? Ideally if there was something that created black tokens this gives me more fodder for Ayara, First of Locthwain and Bastion of Remembrance . When reading your comment I initially thought of Scute Swarm but I’m not sure there’s enough payoff with it to make it make sense.

Hi razelfark

I like the this deck concept I have several similar(I'll list one with the simplest concept I use) I love Witherbloom!

My suggestions come in your Lands, ie. instead of 2xCrawling Barrens, I'd run 4x Faceless Haven I'd also suggest running 26 lands if you are going to run with "Manlands". I would use 4x Darkbore Pathway  Flip. No "jungle hollows" nor "Campus" they are too slow for Witherbloom. 9x Snow-Covered Forest and 9x Snow-Covered Swamp . One because the are considered "Basic" Land and two it only takes 3 Snow-Covered Lands to activate Faceless Haven instead of 4 for crawling barrens.

Have thought about adding Plumb the Forbidden ? With Witherbloom Apprentice and Bastion of Remembrance it's like a machine gun and since it Drain Life they can't "prevent damage" from it.

Also the Learn mechanic with cards like Eyetwitch + Sedgemoor Witch is great for more canon fodder like Pest Summoning or Necrotic Fumes .

Here is the deck I had mentioned sharing with you earlier.

The Flood (Halo)

These are all just my suggestions, take them with a grain of salt. Ultimately what matters is designing and playing a deck you like/love.

Thanks for the insight!

I've looked at most of the cards you've suggested, but I wanted to stick to the life-gain shtick, as it was the original idea behind the deck. I don't know how I missed Bastion of Remembrance , though, as it seems like a definite upgrade to the deck. I've edited the deck a few times after play testing it on the site. I don't think that I want to put too much into making it competitive, as the main idea is to just have fun at FNM.

If I had to make changes, I would take out the Witherbloom Command s and the pure life-gain cards, probably for Woe Strider , Hunt for Specimens , and Pest Summoning . Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose is a pet card of mine, so I don't think that I could cut it without losing the heart of the deck.

I've played competitively (poorly) in the past, so I know that my deck is sub-optimal. I appreciate that you took the time to look at the deck and critique it. It's my first standard deck in about four years, as I mostly play commander now. There will probably be more edits to the deck in the future as I change preferences in how I would like it to play.
