Asylum Visitor Discussion
1 day ago
Thank you both for the great advice concerning my tribal vampire deck. Based on both of your recommendations I made the following changes:I removed all non-vampire creatures and planeswalkers including Flamerush Rider, Combat Celebrant, Dukhara Scavenger, Chandra, Pyrogenius, Liliana, Death Wielder, Akroma, Angel of Fury, and Ammit Eternal. I did keep Ob Nixilis Reignited because of his first ability to draw cards and his third ability to deter opponents from drawing cards. I added Diabolic Tutor, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Pawn of Ulamog, Bloodrite Invoker, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodmad Vampire, Bold Impaler, Voldaren Duelist, Call the Bloodline, Dark Impostor, and Diabolic Tutor as I had them already in my collection. I also added Asylum Visitor to help with the card drawing aspect. The other recommended cards are great and I will begin adding many of them to my collection / deck as soon as I can. Again, thank you both for taking the time and making the recommendations. They were super helpful.

Turns out I don't actually have a second Damnation, but I did acquire a Bontu's Last Reckoning and have updated the list accordingly. Also, rules non-bos mean Liliana is more critical to the deck than I originally thought as Asylum Visitor an Necrogen Mists really clash.

After some more play: I always side out the Augur of Skulls so lets just start that way. Also, I've run into matchups where Waste Not seemed relevant. Other card balances have been altered as I've aquired some better stuff.

I like Hero's Downfall or Never / Return as they can remove Planeswalkers as well. If you want removals with lower cost, Victim of Night and Fatal Push make solid choices. Bad Moon makes a good enchantment as well. Some other vamps I like that might work well, are Asylum Visitor, Indulgent Aristocrat, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is good for ramping up what you have.

My advice is to leave the idea of budget-jund behind. It's just not the same, literally card for card.
All the fixed-bobs isn't real-bob. Not even Asylum Visitor.
There is only one Liliana of the Veil. You can't really replace her meaningfully - either the casting cost then goes up, or the powerlevel down, or both.
Terramorphic Expanse is not a fetchland. It makes your playing slower, and makes you rely on basic lands, which are not as flexible as shocklands.
The thing about jund is that it plays the individually most powerful cards available, each of them not really relying much on other cards. So a jund player will be happy to put the game in top-deck-mode with neither player having anything on the table apart from lands, as it is probable that the jund deck plays a better threat on an empty table than most other decks. And this is also where the budget decks simply put "are not the same": Their ability to trade cards is smaller, and the threats they play can't end the game in the same way as the non-budget cards can.
I recommend going for something that works better of cheaper cards. There's plenty of decks like that. Start with rakdos, perhaps - you get some of the same spells for removal, discard, and damage, and you could start aquiring some of the BR lands for jund.

Hey man, like what you got going here. I have a few things to suggest.

Wow! I love super-low drop aggro, and I think it's really cool that you're trying this out in standard! I have a lot of thoughts so just bear with me for a bit, but I think this deck could be a lot better. I am going to suggest some 2 drops but you can ignore them if you are thematically against the idea.
Prophetic Prism doesn't seem to really do anything in this deck other than draw you a card, and there are plenty of better cantrips in the format, although I would not suggest running them cantrips just to run cantrips.
Borrowed Malevolence and Borrowed Hotility both seem kind of weak compared to some other options you could consider.
Indulgent Aristocrat and Animation Module are both too narrow in your current build; you have to sacrifice creatures to the aristocrat to even get counters in play and they only go on the few vampires in the deck.
Bone Picker rewards you for playing aggressively, you can swing your whole field into a big creature, lose one of your guys and immediately replace it with a better one.
If you want a strong top end, introducing some 2-drop creatures can really help out the deck. Lupine Prototype hits like a freight train for 2 mana, and emptying your hand should be a breeze in this deck. Asylum Visitor is going to make it really hard to lose steam in this deck, letting you draw an extra card every turn is something this deck could really benefit from; that 3/1 body is just the cherry on top.
Standard decks in the current meta can stabilize very quickly, Magmatic Chasm can get your creatures through those stabilized fields to finish them off quickly.
Harsh Scrutiny can be used to eliminate problematic threats a turn before your opponent casts them. Another way to deal with problematic creatures is Pacification Array, either to stop them from attack, or stop them from blocking.

This looks promising. The removal package is solid, a Maelstrom Pulse would be nice but overall looks good. Lay Bare the Heart is a slow Thoughtseize, almost. I prefer Duress over a card like Harsh Scrutiny in Jund because you have plenty of creature removal already.
This seems a little creature heavy, normally Jund runs 12-14 creatures. Bloodhall Ooze can be a good Goyf replacement. Asylum Visitor is strictly better than Blood Scrivener in my opinion. Painful Truths could also be good in a budget build.
A cheap planeswalker worth testing is Arlinn Kord, currently about $3.50 on TCG. She works well as a tempo card and also a good burn threat when flipped.
