Font of Agonies


Whenever you pay life, put that many blood counters on Font of Agonies.

, Remove four blood counters from Font of Agonies: Destroy target creature.

irmsilver on Bloodletter of Aclazotz vs. Paying …

2 months ago

Bloodletter of Aclazotz has a replacement effect that makes your opponents lose twice as much life whenever they would lose life during your turn. Since paying life is also losing life, I'm a little confused as to how this card works regarding that.

For example, an opponent controls Font of Agonies, and same opponent tries to cast Dismember targeting my Bloodletter for the cost of {1} and 4 life during my turn. Do they pay 4 life but lose 8 life (and put 4 Blood Counters on font), or would the spell actually require paying 8 life to cast (putting eight Blood Counters on Font)?

Have you considered Font of Agonies? It works as reusable creature kill.

Since you already have Syr Konrad, you may want to consider adding Mindcrank. You'd be surprised how many cards this 2-card combo can mill in creature heavy decks. Another 2-card combo you may want to consider is Peer into the Abyss and Underworld Dreams

Hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

Have you considered Font of Agonies? It's a useful way to benefit from all the paid life at the cost of your opponents. Also, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose is a card like Sanguine Bond that can be retrieved from the graveyard.

I hope this helps. Happy Hunting?

Font of Agonies is a must for any deck relying on paying life to cast spells. I have it in my K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth deck and can kill a surprising number of creatures if both are kept on the battlefield long enough.

There's no guarantee you can get K'rrik on the battlefield soon enough to make a difference. That's why I recommend finding a spot for Defiler of Flesh to give you an increase in chances of having the ability to pay life instead of mana.

Also, Crypt Ghast, while legal in mono-black decks, can lead other players with the mistaken impression that it isn't legal due to the extort cost.

Tainted Remedy is very flavorful for a Liliana deck, but unless you add more cards that allow your opponents to gain life(including, but not limited to, Grollub and Triskaidekaphobia), or in a play circle where lifegain is well utilized, it's mostly a dead card. If you wish for an alternative I'd recommend Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose.

As for benefitting from Graveyard recursion, may I suggest Syr Konrad, the Grim? Get this on the battlefield with the Gravecrawler/Phyrexian Altar combo and it's an Insta-win.

Have you considered Liliana's Caress with all the discard in your deck?

That's all for now. Thank you for reading me out. I hope this helps. Happy Hunting!

This is a pretty well-made deck so far.

As Jupiter_Ascendancy mentions, Dismember might work here. I would also suggest Dark Confidant, Agadeem's Awakening  Flip, Font of Agonies and maybe Vilis, Broker of Blood but the latter is definitely a bit on the expensive side mana-wise. Those cards should all be pretty useful in your deck.

Thanks for the suggestions kamarupa!

Solemnity would be a really cool and although I’m not sure how it would prevent me from spending my life, it would prevent me from using my Font of Agonies and from putting counters on my Spawn of Mayhem.

I do really like Spoils of the Vault but I feel like there’s a very high chance that I would just end up killing myself with it way too often. I could give it a try though.

I agree that Dismember is a better removal spell than Rage Extractor, I just really like rage extractor.

Thanks for the comment! I appreciate the help :D

Dark Prophecy is solid, if you plan on taking advantage of the land untapping Font of Agonies is pretty good. i've been liking Dig Up as a casual tutor card because of the mechanic. i dont know how often you've gotten to play this deck but i feel like you need more sac outlets. Woe Strider, Carrion Feeder i've always liked Disciple of Griselbrand. that's all i got for suggestions. enjoy beledros i love my deck i made of him
