Bloodthirsty Aerialist Discussion

I'd consider swapping a few cards for Bloodthirsty Aerialist, as you've got some life gain to support a couple. They can get big, and are evasive. Maybe switch out Shrieking Affliction and Corrupted Roots? To back that up, I'd consider tossing in some Scoured Barrens which offer the possibility of pumping the Aerialist while also offering a bit more white mana. You could mix the Aerialists with Ajani's Pridemate to have a quicker beater. Either should work in a less competitive legacy game

I feel like some removal might be very welcome in here too. Ideally things like Vindicate since you've got BW already. Versatile removal is generally the best, since some decks run few creatures. Oblivion Ring is very nasty, as is Diabolic Edict.

Got in a few matches last night. No Temur Clover. I dominated White Devotion twice.

I lost to an Orzhov Ajani's Pridemate and Bloodthirsty Aerialist deck because I accepted a bad draw instead of mulliganing, thinking that Shatter the Sky was going to save me. Still a battle but I fell behind and couldn't catch up.

[EDIT] After some testing in ranked standard, I found that Linden, the Steadfast Queen is a very powerful card in synergy whith Heliod, Sun-Crowned. I definitely got enought removal with 2 Banishing Light, 2 Murderous Rider and 2 Pacifism. Now as it is, this deck can win turn 4 or 5.

If you feel something's not right, feel free to tell me! :)

One idea you could do is replace Lampad of Death's Vigil with Mayhem Devil and Bloodthirsty Aerialist with Woe Strider and turn the deck into sacrificial pinging damage instead of life gain. Already your deck can only gain life from Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Lampad of Death's Vigil. If you don't mind being more "meta"-based, you could throw in Cauldron Familiar + Witch's Oven (or just the oven would be good in the deck you have right now) and for even more life gain as well as devotion for Gary is Ayara, First of Locthwain. Sorry for all the suggestions. :p

Lotus Field was something i started to play around with today, I'm just seeing if there is any advantage to it in Mono.

I only have Core 2020 and Theros BD on preorder.

Evolving Wilds & Traveler's Amulet are there to thin the deck as best I can in a very controlled way so i'm not self-milling.

Mirror Shield like Lotus Field is something else I added today to play with to give Soulreaper of Mogis more protection from red/burn.

Agonizing Syphon is for decks where I need jest a bit more life also helps Bloodthirsty Aerialist.

Moldervine Reclamation is also an add from today as an idea for adding to the synergy of the lady dancers since I'm already sacrificing creatures.

Without Mogis, tell me a better way to get card advantage with drawing cards in Mono-Black? Especially only using Core 20220 and TBD...

Not trying to sound defensive I'm just tired and just got home from my first day of work in two months.

Why only 1xsorin?

Sorin Markov

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord

Sorin, Vampire Lord

Sorin, Grim Nemesis or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord if you wanted to splice in some White through either Duel Lands or Artifacts. Hell, a couple Lotus Field s would work even Unknown Shores could do the trick.

I'd lose one to three Swamp s This is a Mono-Black deck. Mono decks only need 16-18 of their Primary Mana source, this frees up room for either more Spells, Creatures, or Planeswalkers.

Also, I'd trade in Barren Moor Bojuka Bog Castle Locthwain Piranha Marsh for 4x Westvale Abbey  Flip They'll never see that coming and it plays into the story of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and since the Shadowspear is made from pieces of the Helvault you could add one of them.

Indulgent Aristocrat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , & Vampire Outcasts I would personally replace them with 3x Bloodthirsty Aerialist s but they can be replaced with Knight of the Ebon Legion , Dark Impostor , & Child of The Night for a much better effect.

Skyler1776: Thanks for your comment! :)

Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord was in the deck from the beginning. Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Gideon Blackblade are a little bit to expansive ($$) for my budget, but I considered them before I completed deck and in my opinion, Sorin better suits the assumptions (lifelink for my creatures (in my turn), -X resurrection from graveyard, +2 damage with lifelink == another counter for creatures. My main assumption is gaining life (from lifelink, Soulmender ) to trigger Epicure of Blood , which cooperates perfectly with Ill-Gotten Inheritance and Revenge of Ravens -> Ajani, Strength of the Pride doesn't work well enough with this set. Btw sometimes I don't even have to attack, to win the game. Other creatures in my opinion are perfectly compatible with themselves.

Gideon's Company is very good card, but I decided to change it for Bloodthirsty Aerialist . It has flying, which is good way to deal damage, when opponent doesn't have any flying creatures / or to defend flying attackers.

Now I'm trying to change some lands to speed up an avalanche of 'counters'/'triggers'. ;)
