Bloodflow Connoisseur Discussion

PaulMuadDib on Vito, Thorn of Dusk Rose

You are going to need more than 12 lands. Whenever I build a deck, I always start with 40 lands and then for every 3 pieces of ramp, which for a mono black deck would be a mana rock or swamp doubler or ritual spell like Dark Ritual, I remove a land.
Please retune the deck with 12 non-land mana sources and 36 swamps for starters and you can think of non-swamp lands you want to include later.
My suggestions for those sources are any 12 of the following, depending on your budget:
Sol Ring
Star Compass
Commander's Sphere
Crypt Ghast
Charcoal Diamond
Soldevi Adnate
Songs of the Damned
Worn Powerstone
Dark Ritual
Everflowing Chalice
Ashnod's Altar
Cathodion
Guardian Idol
Hedron Archive
Mind Stone
Magnifying Glass
Millikin
Prismatic Lens
Cabal Coffers <- could replace a swamp
Bubbling Muck
Pristine Talisman <- defiantly want that

After that you've got the commander, which takes up 1 card slot, so that leaves you with 51 cards to choose from.

I see the bare beginnings of either an aristocrats or a reanimator deck. In my opinion you should push more for aristocrats. It can draw you tons of cards and gain you quite a lot of life. There's no harm in keeping some reanimation spells in there though.

You want a good number of sacrifice outlets. I haven't heard of what a hard number should be so I'd shoot for at least 5. Here's a list of some that I remember off hand:
Witch's Cauldron
Vampiric Rites
Ashnod's Altar
Infernal Tribute <- has a funny synergy with Spine of Ish Sah
Gnawing Zombie
Altar of Dementia
Attrition
Blood Bairn
Bloodflow Connoisseur
Bloodsoaked Altar
Bloodthrone Vampire
Carnage Altar
Carrion Feeder
Corpse Blockade
Culling Dais
Dark Privilege
Diamond Valley
Disciple of Griselbrand
Gutless Ghoul
Lampad of Death's Vigil
Mind Slash
Spawning Pit
Phyrexian Plaguelord

For this strategy you'll need recurring creatures or token generators
Ghoulcaller Gisa
Reassembling Skeleton
Endless Cockroaches
Tenacious Dead
Nim Devourer
Bridge from Below
Open the Graves
Sanitarium Skeleton
Gravecrawler

value
Pitiless Plunderer
Bolas's Citadel

Lifegain
Blood Artist is a staple
Plunge into Darkness is something you might want for the pure lifegain of 3 per creature you sacrifice. Not sure that you want to use the "exile a bunch of your deck" too often.
Bontu's Monument
Corrupt
Drain Life
Shadows of the Past

reanimation
Living Death
No Rest for the Wicked
Sepulchral Primordial
Zombify
Rise from the Grave
Victimize
Apprentice Necromancer
Call of the Death-Dweller

spot removal/board wipes
Mutilate
Damnation
Defile
Hero's Downfall
Vona's Hunger

draw
Read the Bones
Sign in Blood
Damnable Pact
Smothering Abomination
Ransack the Lab
Minions' Murmurs
Harvester of Souls

and so forth. I'd look through some already built aristocrats decks to see exactly whether you want to take that strategy.

Oh yeah, for utility lands I'd choose any of the following within your price range:
Leechridden Swamp
Bojuka Bog
Reliquary Tower
Cabal Stronghold
Volrath's Stronghold
Phyrexian Tower
Myriad Landscape
Terrain Generator
Geier Reach Sanitarium

ManpieJones on Marchesa steal em and smoke em

2 months ago

Ok I liked all those edits. Included all those suggestions.

My concern is now: I have a ton of sac outlets. I do not have a ton of recurrable theft. The way this deck gets that recursion is having it as a ETB on a creature or cast on a creature; that I can get a counter on and then sac it for one of my many uses. This then steals me a creature at EOT that I can sac to control their board a bit more. I think I want to make Bloodflow Connoisseur into a recurrable steal card since I have a cheaper version in Carrion Feeder although he can’t block maybe I keep bloodflow instead. So what is another recurrable steal I can run. I will also create a new breakdown for cards doing sac, steal, draw, ramp. We can’t take out Sage of Fables this in conjunction with Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar is basically free cards. But without this being a token producing deck I need to steal more creatures.

DragonOfTheWest on Card creation challenge

3 months ago

Chandra585, I think channelfireball12345's card is fine as .  Sacrificing creatures for +1/+1 counters is as black as it gets (consider Bloodflow Connoisseur).  Maybe the Kraken should have islandwalk instead of trample, but black can get trample too for big beatsticks.

Ize19 on List of all infinite combos 2.0

7 months ago

Ok, I have a couple of combos that are pretty versatile, and very easily go infinite. Here they are:

Coretapper + Mimic Vat This combo provides 3 charge counters a turn, every turn, for just 3 mana each time. What makes it infinite? Well, one of the things you can do with 3 counters every turn is take infinite turns. Just put those counters on Magistrate's Scepter, and your opponent will never get another turn. If you want, you could create this combo again, and create as many 9/9s as you like, with Titan Forge, or destroy as many permanents as you like, with Lux Cannon

Dross Scorpion + Myr Turbine + sac outlet. What kind of Infinite combo it is, is determined by the sac outlet.

It's always an Infinite ETB trigger and Infinite Death trigger combo.

Blasting Station and Goblin Bombardment deal infinite damage.

Arcbound Ravager, Megatog, Blood Aspirant, Bloodflow Connoisseur, and Carrion Feeder grow infinite P/T from it (Megatog's growth only lasts the turn, but he also gets trample, so he doesn't need to keep the increase).

Altar of Dementia provides Infinite Mill, Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar give infinite mana.

MultiverseSentinel on Alesha Budget WIP

A cheap removal spell in this deck would be a Bone Splinters this of course depends on your meta.

Falkenrath Noble is another good card that also punishes other players who try to set up their sac engine and moves you toward your goal of winning.

I know it is a little pricier at $2ish but a Swords to Plowshares will be invaluable at keeping you alive.

I like Kambal, Consul of Allocation I didn't even know about that card. It doesn't synergize as much with the deck (except for it being a two power card) but it is a nice deterrent.

I dislike Ankle Shanker in this deck because his deathtouch/first strike ability don't trigger when you bring him onto the battlefield from the graveyard tapped and attacking. Which is a HUGE bummer.

I want to get the Archetype of Finality for my deck as well that is pure value in Alesha.

Overall I like it, you have all of the essentials in here. The biggest thing that I notice though is that you don't seem to have that many sacrifice outlets for this deck to get your infinite Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit + Murderous Redcap combo off. I'd recommend Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar but those are pricey af and I can only recommend if you REALLY like this deck. But there are plenty of cheap ones that I run!

Bloodflow Connoisseur

Bloodthrone Vampire

Cartel Aristocrat

Dark Privilege

All of the above are under a dollar in price and able to get that sac engine up and running for you.

Anyway I know this was a lot but I hope that it helps you have a good deck here. Enjoy it!

Bloodgift Demon is better than Indulgent tormentor, Dread Return than Whisper, blood litrugist. Erebos's Titan , Wake the Dead should fit in here nicely. Thespian's Stage can copy the coffers. Pitiless Plunderer and Pawn of Ulamog have strong on-death triggered abilities. Phyrexian Delver is one of my favourite cards. I don't think Corrosive mentor is any good. Entomb and some discard enablers like Putrid Imp would strenghten the reanimator aspect of your deck. Living Death and Twilight's Call should be great since you both have means to fill your graveyard and empty your opponents'. Filth might be good. More sacrifice enablers like Viscera Seer or Bloodflow Connoisseur wouldn't hurt. Exsanguinate is a great way to spend large amounts of mana. I would recommend replacing Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tenacious Dead with Weaponcraft Enthusiast , Marsh Flitter or Sengir Autocrat .

KibaAlpha on Teysa karlov, lady of pain

You should look at adding Bloodflow Connoisseur , Carrion Feeder , Spawning Pit , Viscera Seer and Altar of Dementia for sac outlets.

For sac fodder look to add Archon of Justice , Doomed Traveler , Doomed Dissenter , Myr Sire , Tithe Taker , Orzhov Enforcer and Ministrant of Obligation to name a few.

For card draw look to Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex and Greed .

Ramp using Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

Recur your creatures using Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening .

Garruk's Wake wipes the board leaving your stuff intact then cast Command the Dreadhorde to take control what ever number of planeswalkers and creatures are in your opponents graveyard.
