Anointer Priest Discussion

Have you thought about adding Anointer Priest ? The biggest weakness to the list that I can see is that it is slow. Being able to gain life off your token producers would help you survive long enough to consistently play all those juicy 4 and 5 mana spells. As an added bonus, if it dies for some reason, you can bring it back as a zombie with embalm.

You also might want to think about adding some options to help you fix your draws. At a minimum, I would suggest replacing Oketra with Bontu. Hidden Stockpile might also be an option although I'm not sure what you would cut for it. My final suggestion would be to try running a few copies of Yahenni, Undying Partisan in your sideboard. Yahenni prevents getting blown out by fumigate since it can eat your creatures before the spell resolves. It also gives you a way of making sure your creatures end up in the graveyard if they try to exile them with magma spray or Vraska's Contempt.

Good luck and hope this helps.

Maybe Anointer Priest for lifegain when you create tokens and Visionary Augmenter for some more tokens

Neat deck!

Yea it was a lucky play. With all the tokens already on the board, Oketra the True, a Kitesail Freebooter (Cant say enough about this card!), and a few others mixed in. I dropped the Kitesail last which put it at 16 creatures total and swung for the win. The guy wanted to concede the round prior but said he had to see what it would do next LOL. The Myriarch is so overwhelming IMHO. Im really supprised it isnt played more.

Ive went back and forth with my deck. Splashed White, Red, White and Red, and then just went back to White for Anointer Priest, Anointed Procession, and Oketra the True. Another good one for these decks is Obelisk Spider. Has reach and the added ability that if a -1-1 gets put on anything, you gain 1 life. Synergies great if you have Ammit out. Every time the opponent casts anything you gain a life.

your deck is unique in the way that it wants tokens, but not alive tokens. so I have a few recommendations, first off you have a few too many board wipes in my opinion, you should choose between Bontu's Last Reckoning and Fumigate. then, in place of the less board wipes you could use Start / Finish, it not only is castable from both expertise's but also give tokens and triggers revolt for fatal and allows buntu to attack and Bone Picker to cost less. not to mention it kills a creature for Yahenni, Undying Partisan. on the topic of fatal push, I think it as a 4 of is almost a given, this deck is best late game so having four will help you live though the early game and it is also so easy to trigger revolt, and again it triggers yahenni. you also could try Anointer Priest for some more life gain for Adanto Vanguard but also if you board wipe or sacrifice him he can come back, also good for surviving early game.

what i'd have to say about this deck is that it needs better consistency by reducing the variety of cards, by having 4 of each important card so you can reach your win condition a lot more often and maybe cutting down the land down to 20-24 instead of 29 would help a bit. I drew a few sample hands and all of them had 4-5 lands in hand, which doesn't leave much room for options. If you are trying to run a vampire deck to overwhelm your opponent with tokens, run more Panharmonicon and Anointed Procession to double maybe even quadruple your token production with just having one of each. then if your running that sort of deck then Anointer Priest will heal double with Panharmonicon this deck will get really gross really quick the more pans and processions you have out. then try to limit the amount of creatures to those who can produce tokens and have 4 of each one. you still gotta keep low cost creatures of course but hey this is my opinion on what direction your deck should take if you want it to be real gross.

I'm trying to understand your point of view, but I don't. The deck is not trying to be a control deck. Let me explain why I run those cards.

Fumigate- Since I've played with this deck, I've noticed you will not have a board all the time, this card comes in handy, and with Hidden Stockpile & Anointed Procession you wouldn't mind if tokens get cleared on your side. Arguel's Blood Fast- With all the life you gain this will be a great mana sink for draw power, to refill your hand.

Anointer Priest-Easy life gain for all the tokens produced. Also, when you have the right cards on board, such as Anointed Procession + Hidden Stockpile the recurring life gain decks ridiculous.

Earthshaker Khenra It doesn't seem out of place, this card wins games. Anointed Procession + Earthshaker Khenra doubles the token when externalize. Now, imagine with multiple copies of Anointed Procession out.

Kari Zev, Skyship Raider- Easy revolt trigger and flip Legion's Landing  Flip on turn three.

Oketra the True- Token producing and hard to deal with when activated, how does this seem out of place? This deck is a token deck.

The deck doesn't try to do many things at once, the curve is good, I haven't had a problem with it.

Looks interesting, but I'm not quite sure what the deck is trying to do. Is it an aggro deck or a control deck? If you are going for an aggro strategy, then cards like Fumigate, Arguel's Blood Fast, and Anointer Priest don't make much sense. If you are going for a control deck, then Earthshaker Khenra, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, and Oketra the True seem out of place. By trying do too many things at once, you end up a bunch of cards you don't want to see in the same hand.

I'm sorry my friend. but your deck doesn't work the way you think it does. Anointed Procession's ability is a replacement effect, not a triggered ability. A triggered ability can usually be identified by the words "when", "whenever", or "at". I love the idea behind the deck, but Panharmonicon and Anointed Procession don't interact at all. Panharmonicon does affect Anointer Priest, Crested Sunmare , Legion's Landing, Trial of Solidarity, and Cartouche of Solidarity though.
