Doom Blade Discussion

jakeelephant006 on my fav card from oath is back baby

If you're looking for budget options, you could replace Thoughtseize with Duress, Specter's Shriek, Despise, Harsh Scrutiny, Agonizing Remorse, or Divest. Even Brain Maggot or Kitesail Freebooter would work. Those also work as replacements for Thought Erasure. Dig Through Time can be replaced with Treasure Cruise or Drawn from Dreams. Fatal Push could be swapped for Murderous Cut, Doom Blade, Cast Down, Ultimate Price.

For the lands, you can always run cards like Dismal Backwater, Dimir Guildgate, or Submerged Boneyard to replace some of the pricier dual lands and Evolving Wilds or Warped Landscape to take care of Fabled Passage.

Boza on Two Life-Draining Spells

Given that Feast of Blood exists as a super-Doom Blade, I think balancing it similarly to need 2 or more vampires will be good enough.

I never noticed Vicious Conquistador before. Looks like an upgraded Pulse Tracker, which makes it good. I'd move some more in that direction. You really want to be pretty sure of a 1-cost creature in your opening hand and a 2-cost creature or two 1-cost creatures for your second turn. You want to be getting some hurt in before the opponent starts dropping bigger creatures. When they do, you want to be using inexpensive removal on their better creatures (Doom Blade, Smite, Victim of Night, etc.) or evading them (Vampire Nighthawk, Gruesome Deformity, etc.) to keep the pressure on and finish them quickly. Don't over-focus on life gain and defense. A little can give you an edge; too much will deprive you of focus. If the opponent is given time and room to fully develop his/her game plan, the extra life will only slow your loss by a turn or two, not prevent it. Embrace cards like Sign in Blood, which lets you trade those life points for something you need more, cards. It can also be used to get in a couple of points of unblockable life loss on an enemy, but that's not the most common use. Keep in mind that the only life point that matters is the last one.

I know you want to avoid the full-on voltron package, but how does Faith Unbroken sound? As it is creature removal on an aura, so you can grab it with things like Heliod's Pilgrim if you really need a piece of removal (a bit costly, mana wise, but sometimes you just need Doom Blade), and you can even toss it into play off a Bruna trigger if you need to snag a blocker or something that is making combat difficult. Just a thought.

My own Bruna deck is more balls to the walls voltron than the average deck (Lion's Eye Diamond and everything, I have a problem), but I do love me some control. I'd be very interested to hear how your deck performs.

I like this a lot! I would consider Doom Blade and Geth's Verdict if possible, however,

Cast Down , Doom Blade , and Putrefy are all good, super-cheap removal. Necrotic Wound is especially good for a graveyard deck. You might get some other ideas from my $5 Graveyard Shenanigans, although it's not focused on +1/+1 counters.

Personally I find the mox tantalite super fucking slow in my meta, what power level is your meta using the 1-10 scale? I'm running around the 8-9 range. Nothing is off limits, we're just shy of cEDH. I was going to suggest mana crypt too but I'm well aware you already know how powerful that card is, and you would probably have included it if you had one.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of the 3cmc rocks (except darksteel ingot) especially in mono color decks. There are so many good 2cmc rocks that I don't see here that I would run OVER these rocks pretty much all day. You could even cut prismatic lens for one of the rocks that taps for black if you're needing colored mana that bad. Charcoal Diamond , Fellwar Stone even Mind Stone is stronger than prismatic. Also, I know you're only running it because of the BB cost, but you should probably be running Doom Blade instead of Pharika's cure, it has more flexibility (the exception would be if you have an aggressive 2 toughness black commander in your meta).
