Bishop's Soldier Discussion
1 week ago
Sanctum Seeker and Vicious Conquistador is definitely still a must for vampires. I'd try to find a home for them somewhere. Bishop's Soldier and Yahenni, Undying Partisan would do well also in here. And I only like Yahenni mainly for fumigates. You have a massive army, and they try to bored wipe, with Yahenni out, theyd only get 1 life. Metallic mimic seems like its fitting, but I find it too fragile compared to the other options, and arguel's blood fast doesnt really help out as much as one would think. Other than that it looks great imo. Oh Sentinel Totem for sideboard for graveyard hate.

Vanquish the Weak for some budget removal, or Vraska's Contempt for a slightly more expensive option. Settle the Wreckage for fast decks. Unclaimed Territory for better fixing and/or the slightly more expensive Concealed Courtyard. Adanto Vanguard. Fumigate sideboarded for the token deck I've heard is going around. Not sure exactly what budget means for you. Also, Bishop's Soldier is rather weak compared to other options, and consider taking out some 4-5 costs to lower your curve.

I should also add that I think Bishop of Rebirth might be better for this deck than Angel of Sanctions. I freely and openly admit that this is purely opinion and could be mistaken. You just have a bunch of 2 drop creatures, and you could add 4 more (e.g., Bishop's Soldier) and really take advantage of Bishop of Rebirth. Just a thought.

It seems like you want to capitalize more on Oketra's Monument, but you only have 18 creatures. That means you won't be casting creatures as often, so you won't trigger the monument as much. I think you could remove Gideon's Intervention and Inspired Charge to make room for more creatures, or at least room for 4x Legion's Landing Flip (though that doesn't trigger the monument either--but it's a really good card). Maybe 2x Skywhaler's Shot and only 2x Cast Out, just to keep the curve a bit lower. Ixalan's Binding might be better than Cast Out; worth considering, anyway. Bishop's Soldier might be nice as it has lifelink.
Cool deck! +1 from me!

Glad your deck is winning. :) I'm not really confident in making a great suggestion what to take out. But my first thought is eliminating or reducing Duskborne Skymarcher. Even cutting 1-2 Bishop's Soldier or Queen's Commission. All of them are sweet cards, imo. But Mimic looks like it would simply be better.
Also adding 1x Legion's Landing would be perfect. It's exactly what this deck wants with Mimic and token generators.
Of course, 4x Concealed Courtyard is an auto 4x if you can budget.

Hey there! Nice deck you have here! Addressing your questions in order:
First, I would recommend cutting the following cards:
- Bishop's Soldier
- Drana's Emissary
- Duskborne Skymarcher
- Falkenrath Gorger
- Insolent Neonate
- Pulse Tracker
- Shadow Alley Denizen
- Shared Triumph
- Stromkirk Occultist
- Tithe Drinker
- Vampire Cutthroat
- Vicious Conquistador
You may notice a theme with the above cards: They're mostly low-CMC Vampires with a small effect. While I rarely play super-aggro EDH decks, the fact that you're facing usually 3 opponents with 40 life each means that simply having a lot of creatures doesn't do a lot. Edgar Markov makes a lot of tokens on his own, which can all grow absurdly large, so I really don't think you should be focused on spending your cards on weenies when you can be doing better things.
As for your other concerns:
- I really don't think Well of Lost Dreams has a place here. It's best in heavy-lifegain decks that lack other strong ways (and need strong ways) to draw cards, neither of which is a good descriptor for this deck.
- Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Door of Destinies, on the other hand, absolutely belong in here. Door is one of the strongest cards tribal-aggro decks have in the format, and Purphoros is excellent in any deck looking to swarm the board.
In any case, hope this helps! Good luck!
