Are you weary Planeswalker? Take a seat in this high-end La-Z-Boy! It has all of the comforts you need to rest those sore feet of yours. Go ahead and put them up. Are you thirsty? Only blood will do and you know it. There you go. Sip it slowly and enjoy the metallic-tang on your lips. I promise, you'll feel better. Don't worry if you spill, you'll be watching the perfection of the world pass by you forever.

This is a pillow fort Oloro, Ageless Ascetic deck with a smattering of sangromancy for funsies. There is nothing better than draining your opponents and giving yourself life. Combo's are everywhere in this deck. Everything in the deck interacts with something else. Its beautiful synergy. Sit back and relax on your La-Z-Boy as your opponents get pinged to death, quickly and efficiently.

The most fun part of the deck -- the sangromancy! These cards are a constant source of life gain and damage for your opponents. This is essential for keeping you alive long enough to set the board up and has the amazing feeling of slowly bleeding your opponents dry.

1) Bloodchief Ascension

2) Cliffhaven Vampire/Marauding Blight-Priest

3) Court of Ambition/Drana's Emissary/Palace Siege/Twilight Prophet + Paradox Haze

4) Revenge of Ravens

5) Kambal, Consul of Allocation

6) Polluted Bonds

7) Tainted Remedy

8) Sanguine Bond/Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose/Vizkopa Guildmage

Our games are going to be slow. Very slow. So we really want is to survive while our sangromancy brings everyone down to manageable levels and we draw into our win cons. As a result, we need to slow everyone else down to a crawl with tax effects and deter actions with damage.

1) Aura of Silence

2) Authority of the Consuls/Blind Obedience

3) Crawlspace

4) Ghostly Prison/Propaganda

5) Painful Quandary/Soul Barrier/Kambal, Consul of Allocation

6) Blood Seeker/Suture Priest

7) Revenge of Ravens

8) Sheoldred, the Apocalypse/Fate Unraveler/Underworld Dreams

9) Citadel Siege

Card advantage often wins games and with a pillow-fort deck that doesn't feature tutors, we need to ensure we're drawing cards in adequate numbers to get the cards we need. We obviously have Oloro, Ageless Ascetic if he's outside of the command zone (situational), but we need more than that. A great place to start is Alhammarret's Archive to synergize with Oloro's abilities. We also need to make sure we don't discard our extra cards, so we need Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel.

1) Phyrexian Arena

2) Rhystic Study

3) Mystic Remora

4) Esper Sentinel

5) Drogskol Reaver

6) Sigarda's Splendor

7) Twilight Prophet

8) Well of Lost Dreams

9) Land Tax

NOTE: I know that tutors give a deck more stability, allowing you to get the cards you want/need. However, I feel dirty using them to simply take a win-con out of the deck, so I am making a conscious choice not to include them. I also do not run counter-spells for the same reason. People are already going to hate playing this deck, so no need to increase the odds of not finding any opponents.

Comments, suggestions, and up-votes are definitely appreciated! Thanks for taking a look!
