Arrogant Bloodlord Discussion

0b1ivi0nwa1k3r so the reason Black Knight and White Knight are not in the deck is that I felt they where to vanilla and that even just before mid game begins they just don't do enough. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge is a card I do own but I'm not running as getting him into the graveyard so that I may play him is just not possible with what I have built right now. As for Arrogant Bloodlord its a 4/4 for 3 with a relevant downside while also just being a generic 4/4. Practically all the Elspeth are good cards that I could run simply because they are just good cards. However if I wore to add any new planeswaler in I'd want to add the Gideon that makes 2/2 knight as hes both a good card and a card that makes knight.

Love the idea cant wait for the finished product!!
Most of the cards fit besides Liliana of the Dark Realms (i would put Ajani Goldmane, Elspeth, Sun's Champion, Elspeth Tirel, or Elspeth, Knight-Errant since they buff creatures and your deck is very creature heavy).
I hope this helps!!

benlow, as its really quiet for some time i hope you don't mind me giving my opinion about the cards u mentioned :-)
Arrogant Bloodlord It's text screams don't play me, besides there are tons of 3 drop vampires that work better in my opinion.
Bloodghast Doesn't return to your hand/ isn't cast so no eminence to exploit. It can't block and the haste on it is irrelevant.
Gruul Draz Assassin haven't tested it yet but i think you never spend your mana to level it up?
Mathas, Fiend Seeker I recently cut it, as it helped the opponents to much.
Vampire Lacerator same as the arrogant bloodlord.

Hi! really like the deck and the discussion thus far. was wondering if you've considered these vampires / your thoughts on them:
have you playtested Patriarch's Bidding?

You might want to consider splashing blue for more draw and discard spells like Dimir Guildmage and Dire Undercurrents or even Drastic Revelation. Frantic Search might be a good one too. Those can all add to playing things from the graveyard as well as having stuff in your hand. I'd take out Stillmoon Cavalier and maybe sideboard Arrogant Bloodlord. Fists of the Demigod and Knight of Dusk fit well too. You could always add Terminate if you wanna be that guy.
Cool deck idea though, would love to play against it.

If the Marauder blocks the Bloodlord, the Bloodlord sees a 1/2 creature and the condition of his trigger is met.

No it wouldn't work that way.
Once Borderland Marauder is declared as an attacker (in the declare attacker step) its ability triggers, giving it +2/+0. This makes it a 3/2 until end of turn.
Then, the declare blockers step comes, where Arrogant Bloodlord is declared as a blocker. It checks the power of the blocked creature and sees it has a power of 3. Its ability does not trigger.
If Arrogant Bloodlord's ability said "blocks...a creature with base power 1 or less..." Then it would work this way because when checked base power or toughness, it looks at what's printed on the card itself. (Or any defining abilities i.e. Eldrazi Mimic).
