I know everyone is talking about this, and thinking it's all good and all...

But allow me to do something completely unpredictable: compare it to Angel's Mercy

Let's look at it: Exquisite Blood allows you to gain life whenever your opponent loses like. If they were playing a deck without any life gain, that's 20 life in the end! Amazing!

Well... not so much. First, you have to deal the damage. Ok, that's usually not a problem.

But the main problem is that Exquisite Blood is a 5 CMC enchantment that you need to wait to gain life, while Angel's Mercy is a 4 CMC instant that just gains you 7 life immediately. If you were to get up to Angel's Mercy's level, you'd need to deal 7 damage without Exquisite Blood getting destroyed.

I understand that once you've gained 7 life, you've dealt 7 damage, but that's not Exquisite Blood's effect: all it simply does is gain you life.

All I see here is a slow life-gain card for singleplayer. Play it in Mu... (see all)

@Hand_Bannana & NicodemusCromwell
Loops only cause a draw if there's no way for them to end. A mandatory loop that will somehow break itself eventually will play out for however many steps that takes. In this case it breaks itself by causing your opponent to loose the game. If you have more than one opponent the loop will kill all of them, because Sanguine Bond has you pick a target opponent each time it's triggered.

The only way it would cause an infinite loop is if your opponent has some way of surviving unlimited life loss. Such as Phyrexian Unlife.

Run with San-... KILLING WAVE!

No, seriously. Killing wave. Doubles the life swing cost, and helps you recoup your own suffering.

This was a decent, albeit situational card when AVR was first released. Then, along came Extort...

That's cool,

This seems like a card that would work well in my Sanguine Bond deck. That'll sure do a lot of damage my opponents! Maybe I could run these two with another card for a killer combo...... hmm.... idk...... rain of gore or something.
