Hey, nice version on a low budget. You have good deck building skills on a budget.

Consider Talisman of Hierarchy as 99th card or an upgrade for a Diamond? Orzhov Signet is another mana rock upgrade for a Diamond. Commander's Sphere is upgrade for Cluestone. Angelic Accord is an Angel token source upgrade for Moonsilver.

Sigarda's Vanguard gives Liesa double strike when she ETB and when she attacks. Karmic Guide can reanimate any creature in your graveyard even a black creature. Emeria Shepherd is powerful repeatable nonland permanent reanimation when playing so many Plains. Pair Shepherd with Wayfarer's Bauble.

Liesa, Forgotten Archangel has lifelink, can shut down some opponent strategies and can be repeatable creature recursion. She's good enough to add some creatures who can sac themselves for value especially removal and protection such as Cathar Commando and Selfless Spirit.

Angel of Despair is powerful ETB removal. Angel of Sanctions exiles something when it ETB. Admonition Angel can be repeatable exile. Palace Jailer is more monarch as well as opponent creature exile. Vindicate and Dire Tactics are some budget removal upgrades to consider.

Caves of Koilos, Shineshadow Snarl, Shambling Vent, Temple of Silence, Vault of the Archangel are some budget land upgrades to consider.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, if you want to stop No Mercy then consider Cathar Commando? It's a budget creature so it can be reanimated or recurred with Liesa, Forgotten Archangel as well as other ways which I will mention in my next comment :)

If your getting Jumpstart packs there's several cards to look for other than Exquisite Blood:

I believe in using my money getting singles to build my decks not on $5 packs, but if you enjoy cracking Jumpstart packs look for these cards. Selfless Savior and Blood Artist are uncommons, you might have these cards.


If you're interested in Exquisite Blood then maybe you want to make your deck more combo? I don't think Exquisite is worth $18 since with $18 you can make several upgrades not just one card. For $18 you can make close to 20 card upgrades. Even if you're playing casual having a combo to win the game is helpful. Just don't combo off right away, let the game build up, have fun and then boom.

There's no budget alternative card for Exquisite Blood, but you can mimic the outcome of what the Blood combo does with budget cards. By making yourself lose a lot of life and then gaining the life you lost right back.

Vizkopa Guildmage's ability is like Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose/Sanguine Bond except it's more powerful because it affects each opponent all at once not just one opponent. It however costs three mana to have the effect until end of turn. The combo is to cast a spell or activate an effect to lose a lot of life such as Bond of Agony where you can control how much life you lose which then makes each opponent lose that same amount of life. When you lose the life then sac either Children of Korlis or Tainted Sigil to gain all that life back. This then triggers Guildmage to make each opponent lose that same amount of life again, most likely killing each of your opponents for having 0 life and you win the game.

Children of Korlis is a good card for gaining life because it looks at all life you lose for the entire turn. You can gain a lot at one time after a big attack from opponent doing combat damage to you or a small amount, you choose. It's a one drop creature who can be reanimated or recurred to repeat this effect, great with Liesa, Forgotten Archangel. Outside the combo if you're paying a lot of life for draw such as with Greed then Children can help to gain that life back.

In my last comment I mentioned you can get quality from filler creature cards you play with Infantry Veteran as example of not quality. Children of Korlis and Selfless Savior are examples of quality budget one drops. Mischievous Poltergeist/Wall of Blood's ability can be paid as much as you want, each time losing 1 life, but it's not a good card outside the combo. I suggested it because it's a creature who can be easily reanimated or recurred which can be helpful to more easily combo or repeat the combo. If I was playing this combo I would play it for that reason.

I'll continue with more advice in another comment later.

I have replaced Heliod's Intervention with Cathar Commando, which reduced this deck's average converted mana cost from 4.06 to 4.00, which seems to be a rather extreme decrease, but I shall welcome it. While the intervention is a great card, the creature is far more useful in a deck that focuses on reanimating creatures, and gaining life is only a small part of this deck's overall strategy.

I have replaced Wear / Tear with Cathar Commando, which decreased the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.10 to 4.08, as I can reanimate that creature (not with Tariel, but with other methods), to repeatedly use its ability; it will not trigger both of Balefire Liege's abilities but it shall gain a bonus from the liege, and it also shall serve as a deterrent against my opponents playing artifacts and enchantments.

One thing I'm curious about: Blade of Selves. Sort of seems to me like you don't really have many good targets for it? Armory Automaton and Armored Skyhunter would be good, Trygon Predator and Cathar Commando would at least be able to break some things... but literally every other creature is at best a 1/1? Am I missing something?
