it didnt have enough staying power or removal yeah. and i have 2 bleeder playsets (Blood Artist and Kalastria Highborn ) that made sure i usually got the better end of the deal whenever one of my vamps did die. i have like every vampire lord pretty much, and you have to either deal with vamps early on or have board wipe, otherwise you get overrun pretty quick.

its on the site, im having trouble getting it to link here, so just click my name and its at the top of my decklist called "There Will be Blood"

In my humble opinion, I think the most ridiculous card in this set is Athreos, God of Passage. Either he is a souped up Blood Artist , or almost Tamiyo, the Moon Sage 's emblem.

Anything on my side dying makes for an uncomfortable position for my opponent, because either, for each creature, i get a free Lightning Bolt to their face, or their Murder turns into an Unsummon .

If they banned any card in standard, it'd be this guy, because he can make aggro near unbeatable.

Stemii on Junk Aristocrats (JOU)

Nope. Not the right list. I am sure one will emerge, but this was hoping for a Blood Artist . The new Atheros is going to rely on Cartel Aristocrat , but also cards like Brimaz, King of Oreskos , and Launch the Fleet . Your Xathrid is out of place. A BW human list might be more in line with that play. Pain Seer , too flashy for what the meta on Aristocrats is going to do. And most lists that play Atheros are probably going to try and get Obzedat, Ghost Council in there as well.

m4ver1k on Mono black vampire demon deck

1 day ago

Well, a lot of it depends on your budget. The cheapest mono black, graveyard heavy deck I can think of is actually similar to one I used to play.

Basically, the deck is built around you casting Gravecrawler, then sacrificing him using the Nantuko Husk. Since Nantuko Husk is a zombie, you re-cast Gravecrawler from the graveyard. You do that over and over and make the Nantuko Husk swing for really powerful swings.

Now, if you have Blood Artist on the field, you just keep casting and sacrificing the Gravecrawler like I mentioned above, but every time the Gravecrawler gets sacrificed, you gain a life and your opponent loses a life. If you can put that Blade of the Bloodchief on the Blood Artist, he gets really powerful in no time, but it also works pretty good on the Nantuko Husk himself.

Everything else just kinda' supports those interactions.

OrdinaryButter on Esper Control?

Rune Snag is probably my favorite counter in the game. I'd go Suture Priest and Blood Artist for sure. Sphinx of the Steel Wind is pretty gewd as well, though it's quite expensive. Inkwell Leviathan is probably my favorite blue card and can work wonders if you have a way to give the enemy islands, like using the card Spreading Seas .

I've wanted to play control as well. If you did this, i'd go Blind Obedience , maybe Smallpox , and definitely Hymn to Tourach and Surgical Extraction . Divinity of Pride is a weird card. I love it in theory, but it rarely works out. Maybe Godhead of Awe since it is a little more controlly. Blood Baron of Vizkopa is another fine choice. Path to Exile is great but really expensive. There are plenty of choices, but your creatures are all to big overall. Go with Blood Artist to get a slightly better curve. You just need to make this a little more versatile
