Bishop of Rebirth Discussion

magicsheep on White/Black Vampire Tribal 60-card

Some suggestions: (Right now, your deck is only 55 cards: You need 60)Add: 1xBishop of Rebirth WHY: It can make all your smaller vampires come back and is extremely good at baiting out removal 1xSanctum Seeker WHY: It uses powerful synergy to drain your opponents of life and gain life. 2xMavren Fein, Dusk Apostle WHY: In this deck, it can create a lot of small vampire tokens with lifelink, then swing and kill your opponents by overwhelming them with small tokens, and gaining lots of life to boot. 1xEssence Extraction WHY: It has synergy and can remove smaller creatures that you don't want to waste an Impale on.REPLACE: 2xImpale should be removed. 2xHour of Glory should be added. WHY: Some cards like the Hour of Devastation gods will NOT be removed. Hour of Glory has the same mana cost as Impale, but is more thorough and has lots of benefits.

Great job LykosMTG! I am excited to see updates/new decks from you. Also: daNoodalz: Vona is a she, for future reference xD

Sorry for the misunderstanding! I should definitely do my research! But I suggest some Blossoming Defense because your opponent will definitely try to remove Regal Caracal and Pride Sovereign. Also, against Esper Approach and Gift decks, side boarding some artifact/enchantment removal will be necessary (Forsake the Worldly,Appetite for the Unnatural are good examples). You should also add a Bishop of Rebirth to rebuild after a board wipe common in Esper Gift/Approach decks such as Fumigate or Settle the Wreckage. Great deck daNoodalz!

I was checking out the cycled decks, and I thought I'd stop by and leave some comments/suggestions.

1 Sanctum Seeker could be a reasonable finisher, especially in conjunction with

2 Gruesome Fate. Yes, I have read the above comments and realize you are not going for a creature token spam, but these two can drain your opponents of some serious life and put them under pressure.

3 Bishop of Rebirth: consider side boarding this, because against other standard decks such as Esper Gift or Approach, you will have to be very, very wary of a Settle the Wreckage/Fumigate. Dusk/Dawn is a good way of circumventing the boardwipe, but Bishop of Rebirth is ESSENTIAL for rebuilding after the boardwipe.

4 Sideboard some enchantment/artifact removal. Against Esper Gift decks, this will at least delay the onslaught of God Pharoah's Gift 4/4 tokens. Recommendations: Forsake the Worldly (it has cycling, so you can always cycle if you can't use it)

5 Bishop of Binding for more removal. Also, Moment of Craving/Moment of Triumph are solid early game removals that can be used to kill off some creatures like unblockable merfolk or boost your creatures for a surprise block. Against U/G merfolk, the Moment of Craving will be ESSENTIAL for killing off the (originally) small but unblockable merfolk.

It seems like the main opponent against this deck will be Esper Gift/Approach decks. Against most control/aggro decks, you have early game and later game removal. But the key to beating the Esper Gift/Approach will be to REBUILD after each setback, and there may be many. Bishop of Rebirth is the best choice in this deck (in my opinion). The mana curve is solid, and the deck looks great! Definitely worth an upvote, keep up the great work! I look forward to seeing future edits/updates.

I agree wholeheartedly with the above comments, but also have you considered lowering your Sanctum Seeker count and raising your Elenda, the Dusk Rose count? Or possibly cutting the Bishop of Rebirth ? Other than that, this deck seems very cohesive and competitive.

I see a few problems with this.
To start, why not play 4 Legion Conquistador? Having more means that you get more value with casting them.
Same with Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, you want another one of him.
Don't forget, you are allowed to have a 15 card total sideboard, and moving some of the enchantments there would make it so you don't draw Ashes against an aggressive red deck where it is useless. It also doesn't work on the main form of graveyard interaction in standard, God-Pharoah's Gift. Try adding Crook of Condemnation in the sideboard.
Axis of Mortality does nothing. As an aggressive deck, the only time you would ever get advantage from it is when you are losing to another aggro deck and in that case, turn 7 will not come.
More removal in Ixalan's Binding or Cast Out is good, since right now there is no interaction.
Oketra's Monument is also good with Legion Conquistidor.
Bishop of Rebirth dies easily and doesn't do enough, I would cut it in favor of more Adanto Vanguards.
Ritual of Rejuvenation, Sanguine Sacrament, Sheltering Light and Vampire's Zeal are not great cards, and overall would be better off as some that keep the deck towards a single plan. Possibly another Legion's Landing would help with the aggressive plan mono white has.
Metallic Mimic serves as a lord, which is especially useful with an aggressive go wide strategy.
You also want about two more lands. I recommend 2 or 3 Shefet Dunes over basic Plains since you will almost always have the mana you need without paying life.

Apex_killjoy02 That's kinda the point of a Death and Taxes deck, to have a lot of answers and get incremental damage in. My "big" finishers in this deck is really Bishop of Rebirth, Gideon of the Trials, and my eternalize/embalm creatures. Also Legion's Landing  Flip for just some long-term token creation if needed.

That being said, do you have any ideas for finishers I could add? I do appreciate your comment.

Okay, last comment... Maybe even Angel of Invention would be better. It's certainly more delicate as a 2/1, but the +1/+1 anthem effect (including tokens) is pretty sweet. I still think Bishop of Rebirth might be preferable, but a good argument can certainly be made for Angel of Invention.
