AmoeboidChangeling on Black Bulk Deck

I think it's a nice deck, not sure what chance it would have against meta decks, but it's creative and definietly worth a few tries.

Some card draw wouldn't hurt, I'd replace a few Swamps with Barren Moor. There are other instants too that give deathtouch and Bladebrand also draws you a card. A creature I'd definitely check out is Bone Picker.

Cranial Plating is actually banned in Pauper. Always a good idea to check out the banlist before playing a new deck.

The mana value/converted mana cost of Bone Picker is always 4, even if cost reductions apply. Only spells with an X in their cost have variable mana value.

Hi,

When you have Bone Picker in the graveyard, a creature died and you want to cast bone picker with Lurrus of the Dream-Den from the graveyard, does it have the mana cost reduction and become a legal target? Or is the CMC always 4?

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 .

3> Ahhh I've been wanting to play with Obosh, the Preypiercer and Angrath's Marauders - glad you found a spot for them. While you're at it, you could also consider other "damage doublers" such as Wound Reflection and Fiendish Duo. I've thought about a Vial-Smasher deck with a White partner just to add Gisela, Blade of Goldnight.

3> I see you enjoy big monsters and X-spells here. Oh to be young again... but seriously, this seems like a good deck to play them in as you would be rewarded. Instants are your friend, as you can Smash Vials on everyone's turn! No Comet Storm?

3> I would be worried about Vial-Smasher getting nuked from orbit as soon as your turn passes and it's no longer indestructible. You'll find Heroic Intervention and Slippery Bogbonder will help with targeted Exile removal. You already have Destroy and Sacrifice covered I see.

3> I see some cost-reduced and commander-free spells in there, but you have a limited suite. While doing research for my thoughts on Vial-Smasher, I found the following might be helpful - list is just copy/paste, so it will include some White and/or Blue cards:

Upvote for thriller.

I've never seen Bone Picker that card looks quite useful. Thanks.

Apollo_Paladin yeah those cards are cool, however I think that to make them really work you'd need something to get even more value out of two-for-one-ing yourself. Many mbc list with Village Rites usually have a bunch of Unearth so you can for example sac Chittering Rats and draw two cards, Unearth for a second etb and cast Bone Picker, so for three mana you draw two cards, make your opponent skip their draw step and get a 3/2 deathtouch. My version is much more close to the kill everything mbc with Bone Picker to give it much more pressure, since I'm never triggering Bone Picker with my creatures because I have a ton of removal. If you want to go to the aristocrats kind of strategy that's cool, just that to make that work you'll need to take out cards, like removal. For the same reason Sign in Blood is a much better draw for my deck, because the damage you take is damage that the opponent didn't inflict because you probably killed the creature that would have attacked you, you can use it as a Shock to face so if you top deck it it's never really a dead card and with Gray Merchant of Asphodel I'm gaining a ton of life. Night's Whisper is a worse Sign in Blood, but I switched it in because some times I wanted two cards instead of a second Thorn of the Black Rose, of which I have two extra in the sideboard because Fall form Favor will make our life miserable against tron lol. Honestly I don't see Bone Splinters to be any good in pauper: it is card disadvantage, there aren't creatures that can survive Cast Down and very little Defile, and it is sorcery speed which is not great. However there are most likely lists that make it work, maybe a dredge deck can be cool. Thanks for the suggestions, I'm glad you like the deck, make mbc competitive again!:)
