Adanto Vanguard Discussion

cfesler on Blue/White auras

This deck is what propelled me into standard. Not out of enjoyment, but out of pure hatred. One of my college buddies net-decked this and brought it into our casual sphere and nobody could beat it consistently. Between Sram drawing cards all the time and Adanto Vanguard, there was too much to take care of with little time to do it. It got worse when he bragged this was only 30 bucks... So I immediately threw money at Wizards and built Sultai energy. So hats off to this deck, for haunting my waking nightmares!

Yahenni's Expertise or Golden Demise might be worth looking at to vary up your boardwipes - they don't miss gods or Adanto Vanguard, can't be stopped by Heroic Intervention, don't exert your lands and combined with Archfiend of Ifnir's -1/-1 counters they can clear pretty much any board state.

Nice deck! The would add Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Vona, Butcher of Magan. as they are the 2 strongest vampires, in my opinion. Have you considered Sanctum Seeker? I would remove Vampire Revenant and Adanto Vanguard. Keep up the good work, hope my suggestions help! Also, I see you're new to Tapped/Out, so let me know if you have any questions. See you around, KINGofORESKOS

Nice deck! I would add lifegain as one of the hubs. Let me know if you don't know how to do that, and I can help you out. If budget isn't a big problem, running 3 Vona, Butcher of Magans could really help the deck. Sure, you pay a decent amount of life, but she has vigilance and lifelink, meaning you can gain up to 8 life every turn. Sanctum Seeker is another iconic vampire card, along with Elenda, the Dusk Rose. I would actually run 4 of them, because according to the legendary rule, you must sacrifice 1 if you have 2 on the battlefield, triggering her ability. You seem to be running yourself a bit thin. You have 1-2 of many decent cards, when you should have 3-4 of the best cards. Here's what I would do: -3 Adanto Vanguard. -1 Bone Picker. -4 Gifted Aetherborn. I'm not sure about the numbers, but you should add all cards mentioned above and increase the number of Metallic Mimics.

I did pick up a playset of Radiant Destiny when I ordered some odds and ends for this deck, I just keep feeling like it would perform better in more of a token style vampire deck. I have the Squire's Devotion in the deck for Adanto Vanguard and Yahenni, Undying Partisan. Making them creatures that have to be exiled because of their ability to go indestructible, and allowing me to attack without need of blockers with all of the lifelink. Thanks for giving the deck a look, I do like that Forerunner/Maven combo. Sounds spicy :P

What is your budget for this deck? I can provide better suggestions with a budget in mind. But as it is right now, I would remove Vampire Revenant, Duskborne Skymarcher, Exultant Skymarcher, Glorifier of Dusk, Skyblade of the Legion, and probably Voracious Vampire. You definitely want a playset of Legion Lieutenant, Adanto Vanguard, and Skymarcher Aspirant. Also, go with a full playset of Dusk Legion Zealot. Again, with a budget in mind I can provide better choices.

BlaineTog on Bad Bogles 2: Back in Black -- $8 / 2 tix Hexproof

Abzan is not the way to go, I think. We really need access to counterspells to deal with sweepers.

I could see a case for Bant, using Squire's Devotion as our lifelink aura. This also gives us access to Adanto Vanguard as a virtual 2-mana Bogle; we're way worse against Moment of Craving, Unsummon, and Vraska's Contempt but that may be a worthwhile risk for getting on board so much faster. I'm not even sure if we'd want to bother with Sram, to be honest; it dies to virtually any removal in the game and our opponent will be happy to find targets for their Fatal Pushes and Magma Sprays.

The main downside of Bant is that it loses Trial of Ambition, which is a seriously fantastic card. Getting to cast and re-cast Trials is a huge advantage to Black, plus you have access to better removal if you decide to raise the budget.

Still, it might be worth testing this other build. Any Simic-base color combination could reasonably run Bogles at the moment.
