Turn 5 Blood Baron.
Turn 6 Sorin Markov.
Markov's -3.
Baron swings for game.

It happened to me once.

Does the pro black and white work if it blocks a Tajic? Does the pro mean that damage from w white source doesn't kill him? Is it mono black and white or multicolour where one of the colours are black or white?

I love slapping a Sword of Fire and Ice on him and calling it 'protection from removal.' I know it isn't, but its fun to watch my opponents try to deal with him. I mean come on, how many people main deck or even sideboard something like Prey Upon?

Edit: Currently a tournament staple, and drastically risen in price.

My only question with this card is, "Why isn't this a Vampire Cleric?"

This guy is very resistant to removal. He has got a hardy 4 toughness which makes him burn resistant, and cant be targeted by Oblivion Ring or Murder. Plus he has lifelink which can add up.

The last ability is quite win more, but it can finish off games on an already super efficient creature.

Its nice how his last ability combines the ability of caring if your opponent is bleeding, like the Zendikar vampires (Vampire Lacerator, Guul Draz Vampire) with the white Ascendants which become significantly better when you're at 30 life (Serra Ascendant, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant ). Really makes it flavorful for him to be WB.

I still don't understand the protection from his own guild, though.

Chandra's Outrage
Clan Defiance
Explosive Impact
Fated Conflagration
Homing Lightning
Mizzium Mortars
Rage of Purphoros
Street Spasm
Turn // Burn
Volcanic Geyser

That's all the targeted removal in Standard that kills Blood Baron, no questions asked; cards that are actually played in Standard are in italics. Do you see why this guy is so heavily played?

I totally didn't see the EDH connection with Sorin Markov's -3 until today. Five-drop, six-drop, everyone's dead pretty much, lol, and in black you can tutor these up pretty easily if you want.
