Recon419A on Vampire Deck

2 days ago

It's worth noting that Moment of Craving will not count as "damage" to a creature; rather, it's a static effect. Also, you should be aware that Sengir Vampire and Raise Dead aren't in Standard right now. I don't really have any suggestions for you to replace Gifted Aetherborn ; it's a really good card, and probably would be even at a three-drop slot. Arvad the Cursed is the closest creature in Standard right now and he's a much more expensive legendary (five mana).

You need to drop Sword of the Animist, Elixir of Immortality, and a Mountain to add Boros Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Orzhov Signet. I run 34 lands and dropping a single land for a mana rock isn’t going to kill your deck.

Tragic Arrogance needs to switch to Cataclysm.

Adding Bastion Protector will complement Arvad the Cursed.

TheAmazingSteve on What instrument would Chromium play?

1 month ago

Arvad the Cursed should have a harp.

Sidisi, Undead Vizier should have a didgeridoo. (in his right hand)

Raff Capashen, Ship's Mage should have a flute.

Kytheon should have a small and when he flips it should turn into a larger instrument of a similar type (don't know what, a kazoo maybe?).

ThoAlmighty on What instrument would Chromium play?

1 month ago

I recently made a finalized draft of an EDH decklist centered around banding, with Chromium at the helm (for more old-school mechanics). As the easiest way to give banding consistently is with the cycle of banding lands (for this deck, Cathedral of Serra, Unholy Citadel, and Seafarer's Quay), the deck has a historic theme. The joke of the deck is that all the legendary creatures are part of a band, so after I put the deck together I was planning to alter all of them with simple clipart-ish instruments. My question is: based on the art and character of each card, what instrument should I paint?

Some of them are fairly simple, like Ayesha Tanaka. It's not a stretch to say she's singing, so I could paint a little microphone next to her. Odric, Lunarch Marshal could be playing a cello. Although recognizability is important, I'd like a lot of different instruments. The sillier, the better. Any ideas?

ActionMan on W/B Vamps, Arvad the Cursed

3 months ago

Vraska's Contempt is a must. Instant, so you can react to opponent movements; can target Planeswalkers, not many cards can do that in the enviroment right now.

Black/White mana, has not a solid base right now. I would include Isolated Chapel, and change Hierophant's Chalice with Chromatic Lantern. Your deck does not have a lot of double color spells, so this will be only relevant if you find yourself having problem with fixing the mana.

If your plan is to shift to Vampires Legion Lieutenant, Legion's Landing, Champion of Dusk and Radiant Destiny should be right choices. Adding Vanquisher's Banner is for late, and with no mana acceleration could be a little heavy, but the card draw power is quite good in a tribal deck. Blood Operative is good against the new mechanic Jump-start, but you need more cards with surveil for it to work. Twilight Prophet and Sanctum Seeker are pretty strong too. I feel as you have little removal, Cast Down and Price of Fame are both pretty solid, the later being specially good in a format with a constant legendary treat.

Consider taking outYargle, Glutton of Urborg 5 manas, no vampire, no tramble or other evasion. Arvad the Cursed You don't have a lot of legendary creatures, 5 manas for a 3/3 with no evasion, you can find better things.Encampment Keeper and Walking Corpse must go if you want to take the tribal approach. I would changeCobbled Wings for Captain's Hook, it can do a lot of damage, and is pretty good in creatures with lifelink. Queen's Commission might be nice too.

Good Luck. P.S.:Sorry for my bad english.

eatmygender on a Concept to expand Pauper ...

3 months ago

I had an idea which I wanted to share for a while. Let's face it; Pauper EDH isn't very popular. If anything, people avoid it due to the overwhelming amount of non-legendary Commons they can pick from to be their General. While it could be argued it breaches the spirit of Pauper, I think Uncommon Legendaries (Of the myriad of options we have, largely thanks to Dominaria and Masters sets) should be legal as Commanders for Pauper EDH. There's so much untapped potential in these creatures! Adeliz, the Cinder Wind could be incredibly good in Wizzet Tribal, Baird, Steward of Argive gives you what's essentially a white Propaganda, Bladewing the Risen could make Dragons interesting in Pauper again, Zada, Hedron Grinder is so much bigger than Valuetown she's practically the Value Capital of Value Country, Danitha Capashen, Paragon shows potential for mono-white Voltron, Grunn, the Lonely King has just as much if not more, Hallar, the Firefletcher could have interesting Synergy with Kicked spells, Ihsan's Shade which is an Uncommon thanks to Masters 25 might have potential, Iwamori of the Open Fist could do Legendary tribal better than Arvad the Cursed despite the Color identity, Jalira, Master Polymorphist could make for a great mono-blue Cascade deck, Kongming, "Sleeping Dragon" miiiight do something interesting, and Kwende, Pride of Femeref is another solid addition to the overwhelming amount of White commanders and acts like a slightly Nerfed Odric, Lunarch Marshal. And these are just the ones I thought were worth mentioning. I really want this idea to catch on, because Pauper EDH is struggling, and it saddens me.

Edit: I've been told that you can use any uncommon in Pauper Dragon Highlander. My input isn't nearly as useful anymore, but I would like to say that a lot of these have great potential for Pauper EDH nonetheless.

Welcome to Tapped Out!

You could adjust your mana production, you have more than you need on and need more unless the deck gets more black spells. I'd run four of Authority of the Consuls, Edge of the Divinity and Novice Knight. Not sure about keeping Demonic Vigor since you can't reuse the Aura.

Arvad the Cursed | Haakon, Stromgald Scourge | Bloodcrazed Paladin | Student of Warfare | Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

  • You may not have a need for Arvad the Cursed considering he's has a cmc of 5, but if you get a few more legendaries it might be worth it.
  • Haakon is interesting since you can graveyard cast knights with him on the battlefield. You can use him as a discard card.
  • Bloodcrazed Paladin is good when a creature wipe happens and gives it a number of +1/+1 counters, even on the opponents turn.
  • Student of Warfare is a great early card that can be leveled up with on your turn.
  • Since you have a large number of permanents, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx could be useful on having large amounts of mana to cast multiple spells or quickly leveling up the Student of Warfare.

Caravan Escort, Dauntless Bodyguard and Student of Warfare are all . There aren't any knights in existence. Some out there, Stromgald Crusader, or Craven Knight and Bloodcrazed Paladin. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge would give an interesting synergy. If you get a few more legendaries, you could always use Arvad the Cursed with Mirror Gallery.
