Parallax, my friend! That is the most highly accurate descr!ption of EDH I've seen on Gatherer lol...

Of course in my first ever EDH game (after getting back into magic after 15 years) player one drops a Windswept Heath to fetch a Bayou... And I'm thinking to myself "Huh! $200 land play first turn... I thought this was a friendly game!"

Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood for infinite loop combo?

Ehn- Wrong!

a reading of Oloro's card shows he clearly wants to gain life, and that this card will trigger much more often than Exquisite Blood. Though they are similar, since his lore clearly says he's after immortality, he prefers to Control a game slowly as his lifetotal builds, not close it out with a combo as soon as he enters. . .

I see the possibility to throw it in for an 'oops' I win combo that can be very strongly supported and protected by the Colors, but Oloro is a Giant, not a Vampire. I would pull what you suggest in Jeleva's deck sure, but not his.

EDH multiplayer is supposed to be a bit more family friendly than the hard-core "I'm Here To Win" French 1v1 variant. In 'Competitive EDH', I suppose Exquisite Blood is preferred, but EDH has a clear intention for the format, and it's "Combos are more fun when they're last thing someone does after we derp around playing REAL back-and-forth Magic for at least 5 hours and people are kind of tired or want to shuffle up di... (see all)

I'm glad to see this reprinted,
but Exquisite Blood is *so* much better with Oloro it's ridiculous.
I guess that's why they used this instead.

I like to use this in my Extort deck and it's always such tool to end the game. Also goes well with Gary (Devotion + Twice the damage)

I wish there was a card like this that said "Whenever you lose life, each opponent loses that much life."
That could easily be a game-ending effect.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
