KylerStar on Markov Bloodline (please give suggestions)

5 days ago

I would suggest the obvious suit of shock and fetch lands. I absolutely love the idea of Drana's Emissary, but it usually gets cut from most of my decks. I would definitely suggest Cliffhaven Vampire which ends up doing more work and infinitely combos with Exquisite Blood. Which I would suggest as well for Exquisite Blood infinitely combos with Sanguine Bond. Would also suggest Whip of Erebos or Vault of the Archangel. Possibly Attrition. I have to suggest Crib Swap as removal that nets you a vampire(For this is technically a vampire spell). Blades of Velis Vel, Nameless Inversion, and Shields of Velis Vel are worth mentioning, though maybe not needed, on the same token.

Hi,

a new and interesting commander for sure! I haven't played much tribal yet, so I might not be aware of his full potential yet, but let me give you some cards that came to mind when looking at him:

There should be more, but this gives you something to consider for now :)

Good luck!

@Paranoiac

Thank you for your response, Corpse Connoisseur is indeed a good option I will definitely use.

The other 2 you mentioned I still have somewhere and go in there too.

I doubt if this is the way I want to play the deck.Aura spells are cool but do not know if it fits this deck.

I recently did Grave Pact and Attrition in the deck and believe that it is a better direction.

This is my first zombie deck that I've built.

I like the commander, love the vampire theme. I just don't understand how the deck is supposed to win in a multiplayer format. Ultimately this all comes down to your playgroup and how competitive the deck is, what the meta is, all that good stuff. Most vampire decks to date have done Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond / Defiant Bloodlord. Or stealing opponents stuff with Olivia Voldaren in the late game. Or even Vampire Hexmage + Dark Depths. In my experience, very rarely are you going to be able to overwhelm all of your opponents with vampires that have had time to grow and get fat. Heavy creature decks that also generate tokens are huge Wrath of God magnets.

You may want to consider some more removal if you plan on keeping the win condition brute force: Merciless Eviction, Austere Command, Tempest of Light, Utter End, Oblation, Red Elemental Blast, Grave Pact, whatever. Otherwise, you fall victim to a huge variety of defensive measures: Propaganda, Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Copy Enchantment, Moat, Crawlspace, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, No Mercy, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, etc.

Finally, it's hard for me to say what I would cut without knowing your meta, but I'll give it a go: Confusion in the Ranks, Harsh Mercy, Insolent Neonate, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Attrition, Urge to Feed. These cards are either too finite, or have circumstantial value. Other than that, I challenge you to look at your creature base, I know you want to get a lot of value out of Edgar Markov but the creatures themselves need to bring a lot to the table too.

this is my try about the deckbuilding.

I removed more things with little impact.sanguine bond + exquisite blood combo is not so appealing for it'S CMC and alone. Call the bloodline is also no nice tech either.. (sadly, love both artworks.)bloodtribute is exactly the same (artwork also :P)Olivia, Mobilized for War has no support for the effectvampire nocturnus has activation problems

bring in: Return to DustWear / Tear

Grave Pact

Shivan Harvest

Attrition

Cathars' Crusade (can be insane)

Demonic Tutor

Necropotence (why not )

Lightning Greaves for shroud and other strong vamps

Animate Dead, cause its good

change the 3cmc manarocks with 2cmc to curve out better

the 2 Ixalan vamp spoilers are realy nice so far. are the route i want to go. Some aristocrat way. Just doing aggro stuff might be a bit unexciting

TehGrief on Yahenni of the Endless Offerings (EDH)

@xSKINCOLLECTORx,

Ogre Slumlord is invaluable in comparison to Pawn of Ulamog or Sifter of Skulls, in the sense that his ability triggers on opponents creatures as well as your own. He is well worth the higher CMC.

A critical mechanic of Yahenni of the Endless Offerings (EDH) is for opponents to be forced into sacrificing their creatures.

Equally as critical is for the player to also have creatures to sacrifice. As much as the utility of the Eldrazi Scions and Spawns is enjoyable, and as you mentioned invaluable in certain situations; it is important to have creatures to react to sacrifice triggers.

An Eldrazi Scion or Spawn lose their value when they are targeted with spells like Altar's Reap, or used for activated abilities such as Attrition or Vampiric Rites. Whereas a 1/1 Rat Creature Token from Ogre Slumlord I can sacrifice without a second thought.

This deck has a strong focus on knowing when sacrifice and when not to.

Again, I will still strongly consider Pawn of Ulamog in the future, and I do appreciate your time and recommendations.

Getting feedback or hearing more ideas is one of the best ways to craft the most intricate decks.
