Bojuka Bog for match-ups against decks that actually like having things in their graveyard?

Snips500: Excellent idea! Another card I've been wanting to find a home for, nice. ...But I only found one copy, so I'll get some more in the future.

Thanks.

Magmastorm: Nice, thanks! Your assessment of Bloodbriar's weakness are pretty spot on, in addition to the fact that "Brian" (as our little playgroup refers to him) can't actually win a game on his own. He needs trample, or pro-color, or unblockable, or Fling or something else in combination with it to actually close out a game. Regardless, I enjoy building around and playing the card, so I keep doing it.

It honestly comes down to the fact that we liked sacrifice themed decks, and Bloodbriar inspired us to build a whole crapload of them. I feel like in a lot of my Brian decks, he could be taken out, replaced with something more synergetic with everything else and the deck could be made better... but that's not the point. The point is I want to play this weird-ass, off-color, "sacrifice-tribal" enabler card and see how big I get it and how fast. XP :D

But an Atog and Brian deck sounds cool. Maybe Fling em both? If you do make it, definitely let me see it. =D

I just swapped Hunger of the Howlpack out for Burst of Strength, actually. However I've now realized that Costly Plunder is the only way I can crack Ichor Wellspring for that second card, so... looks like I found a spot for Hunger, again! Thanks a lot!

kingofcramers: Thanks a lot! Glad you like it!

Spell_Slam: The thing about Graceful Reprieve that I like is that it can target my opponent's creatures. I could use it to rescue my own creatures, or I could use it on an opponent's chump (hopefully) to re-trigger the 12 priests. It's the closest thing I can find to use as Turn to Mist #s 5-8.

As for Crib Swap, that is definitely better for this deck than Humble so I'll be making that switch as soon as I find some.

Thanks for the help!

I've always been obsessed with Emperor Crocodile for some reason. It's just so... idk, dynamic. It looks like a snapshot from a NatGeo documentary, but on another plane.

maybe some Titanic Brawls or Mutant's Preys? Maybe instead of Forced Adaptation or Travel Preparations?

tacolover25: TBH, I actually did consider using goblins, but... I already have a deck that does that (Nilbog County Postnatal Abortion Clinic) and I like to experiment with new things. I'm actually trying to use Rite of Flame (which I still need to buy some), and Seething Song (which I need to buy more of). And the Vessel is placeholding for them both.

I do like goblins though, so if Generator Servant doesn't work out, then I now have a Plan B. Thanks for your help!

Snips500: Hey, thanks a lot! Yeah, you're right. I should have at least one Evolving Wilds in here. Also, now that I look at this deck, I don't think Mortuary Mire will do as much for this deck as I'd hoped, so now I'm thinking if I took them all out and added 1x Evolving Wilds and 2x Jund Panorama that might be better.

And yeah Rancor is a good idea, and I'm pretty sure I've got some tucked away somewhere.

Thanks for the advice!

For now, Gallowbraid?

For later, Lord of Tresserhorn and/or Karona, False God.
