Sanguine Bond


Whenever you gain life, target opponent loses that much life.

You get to choose which order to cast Heroes Remembered and Resurgent Belief in. If you choose to cast Resurgent Belief be the first spell out of suspend, the sequence of events is

  1. Your upkeep starts, triggering the suspend effects.

  2. You order the triggers so ResBelief's trigger resolves first, remove the last counter from it, and cast the spell. Heroes's trigger is still on the stack.

  3. ResBelief resolves, returning all enchantments (including Sanguine Bond) from your graveyard to play.

  4. Heroes's trigger resolves. You remove the last counter from it and cast it.

  5. Heroes Remembered resolves, gaining you life to trigger SBond.

  6. SBond's trigger resolves, and one of your opponents loses life.

So as long as you set it up so Resurgent Belief resolves first, you can get Sanguine Bond before gaining life from Heroes Remembered.

i have Sanguine Bond in my graveyard. Resurgent Belief and Heroes Remembered are exiled both with 1 counter remaining. Does Resurgent Belief return Sanguine Bond before Heroes Remembered Heals me for 20?

Since you're already using Sanguine Bond, you may want to consider Exquisite Blood! If they're both on the field together, you'll win instantly as soon as you gain life or any of your opponents lose life. It is a bit expensive, though!

Ok, so I already made 4 cuts. You chose to remove Binding of Titans, now I need to figure out what else to remove as I have Ephemerate, Llanowar Elves, Greater Auramancy, Idyllic Tutor, Bloom Tender, Worldly Tutor, Elvish Mystic, Fyndhorn Elves, Enlightened Tutor, Sterling Grove, Eladamri's Call, Aegis of the Gods, Pernicious Deed, Final Parting, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Sanguine Bond, Exquisite Blood (Birds of Paradise is already in as I didn't update the list at this moment)

Great Commander choice, dude, greatly underrated nowadays imho.

I'll get right to it. Considering that they also translate into card draw, I'd have to recommend an abundance of low-cost Lifegain effects. Archivist of Oghma, Serra Ascendant, Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim, Leonin Elder, Profane Memento, Spectrum Sentinel, Authority of the Consuls & Blind Obedience will trigger often. Zuran Orb allows you to just straight up turn your excess Lands into card advantage mid-late game, provided you tap them for mana before you sacrifice them. Not bad for a 0-drop.

Some higher costed stuff like Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Queza, Augur of Agonies, Sheoldred, the Apocalypse, Life Insurance, Shabraz, the Skyshark & Sunscorch Regent will all draw you a bunch of cards.

As far as winning goes, there are a few combos that work intrinsically with what the deck is already trying to do. I see you're running Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood as one of your WinCons, so you're off to a good start. Heliod, Sun-Crowned + Walking Ballista fits here, as does Aetherflux Reservoir + Bolas's Citadel + Sensei's Divining Top. All of these combos can be easily Tutored within Esper, with the only dead card being Walking Ballista. "Dead" meaning it's useless on it's own, not that it's hard to Tutor.

Speaking of Aetherflux Reservoir & Bolas's Citadel, using your Life as a resource is obviously a good strategy here since you'll be gaining so much of it no matter how you build this one. Greed, Unfulfilled Desires, Phyrexian Processor, Phyrexian Reclamation & Defiler of Faith are good examples. Necropotence & Ad Nauseam obviously exists as well. You could also run stuff like Razaketh, the Foulblooded & Vilis, Broker of Blood, but that would require a Reanimator strategy...

Other than that I'd probably add some more Tutors & Ramp for your combos, & more protection for Oloro, Ageless Ascetic.


_Moonie_ on Possible Regenerate Use?

3 months ago

I'm still a little cloudy on some of the mechanics of Magic and regenerate is one of them I'm somewhat unfamiliar with. But I recall one of my first decks that I built when I was first introduced was Orzhov using the Exquisite Blood Sanguine Bond combo, but I also used High Priest of Penance and Skeletal Grimace

Is that used correctly? Would it work to activate his ability or would the regenerate block any damage from going through keeping it from being activated?

Ad Nauseam would be a good one

Paradox Haze will give you 4 draws when paired with Kami of the Crescent Moon

Fate Unraveler and Font of Mythos let’s you benefit from giving other players additional upkeeps

Rhox Faithmender groups well with Children of Korlis and Ad Nauseam

Crawlspace would be good to slow down incoming attacks on top of Propaganda and Ghostly Prison

Using Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose you could double up damage, paired with Rhox Faithmender and Children of Korlis that could be game.

Just some suggestions! Started building mine today and figured I’d check out what other people were building with Queza.

lukas96 SO SOme very interesting suggestions. This Dekc has a lifegain Sub-theme, theres actually as many cards that gain me life as ones that buff my creatures. so it actually is a life gain deck because You knwo Vampires, Even when I initially played it I used life gain which let me survive larger games of my pod making me harder to kill/wear down. Ironically I find Dark Impostor is the more 'overpriced' effect as 6 mana to delete a single creature is harldy worth the potential ability steal. with some perusing I found a replacement with Sanguine Bond swapping it out for Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose those abilities lets a decent sized army close out a game. I will likely replace the imposter with the Aristocrat given I can easily sacrifce Tokens that block or become blocked to buff my board. Honestly Looking at this deck I feel like Licia Wants her own deck that Is a lifegain focused Deck, Mathas May seem weaker then most but he's honestly just fun to play with, a pet card, that unlike Licia doesnt warrant his own deck. The problem with Boros CHarm ts while thats a great autoinclude I wouldnt compare it to the PERMANENTLY indestrucbile granted by kindred boon. Crackling doom may require more thought but remeber 1-1 removal is weaker in commander DOom actually lets me gets a 2-for-1 or even 4-for1. I have replaced fell the mighty for Settle the Wreckage It came with the Pre-con and I was hoping to use it as a 1 sided board wipe like In Garruk's Wake I think you missed I already Have Merciless eviction as a Hard delete, but I do sometimes blow out some of my own stuff. Now lets talk on the Big Lifedrain. Now if I happemn to have Vito/bond in Play these are just gonan Off someone, heck with Debt to the Deathless there's a Good chance I might end the whole game. But even without that combo, The point of a lifedrain is to either drop an opponat to 0 or put them so far down (and you so far up) they presumably wont be able to survive.

Overall appreciate your feedback but I suspect we have radically different Pods
