Blood Baron of Vizkopa Discussion

Nice deck here, very thematic with the guilds. Though seems a bit slow and a bit too reliant on the combo finishers. Perhaps some of these cards could help you out Baneslayer Angel, Batterskull, Gisela, the Broken Blade, Bruna, the Fading Light, Divinity of Pride, Serra Ascendant, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Ajani's Pridemate, Archangel of Thune, Aetherflux Reservoir, Rhox Faithmender, Felidar Sovereign, and Test of Endurance.

If you gained a bit more life, I would say to put in Blood Baron of Vizkopa, put you would need a little bit more life gain to make it work. Also, since your not really looking at price, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed is a great card for any deck running black.

The deck feels like somewhat of a cross between Soul Sisters and Tokens.
Entreat the Angels>Devout Invocation?
For more Soul Sister and mono token stuff I would see about adding these-
For more token synergies I would go up on the Intangible Virtues as they are the best buff your tokens can get
If you add you can add these cards-
If anything is taken from this comment I would suggest it be Path to Exile since your removal package is basically non existent.

Overall, I like the deck. Blood Baron of Vizkopa is one card you can take out. It seems a bit situational and in EDH it's unlikely that it will have the buff for long, if at all. Fate Forgotten is just a worse Forsake the Worldly, so that's an easy replacement. One problem I see in most first-time EDH lists is that people think "Oh, it's EDH so I can just shovel high manacost cards in the deck like Iv'e never heard of a curve!" You, thankfully, did not make that mistake. One thing I would add is more card draw. You could try Land Tax and Scroll Rack, or Wheel of Fortune but that's not very budget. Ambition's Cost and Ancient Craving are budget alternatives that work, and so are EDH staples Phyrexian Arena and Underworld Connections. Magus of the Wheel and Reforge the Soul are budget options for the wheel. To fit these in, try taking out Kindred Boon. Six mana to make one thing indestructible is not so good.

I tend to think that Blood Baron of Vizkopa doesn't fit well in this deck (depending how you play obviously). I prefer to be a little more aggressive with Edgar as I want to put the counters on my creatures and Baron has the protection from white meaning he won't get the benefit of those counters. Unless that is incorrect, then it's a different story. I should probably ask a judge as this is the second time it has come up for me.
Also, unless you are running Sorin Markov I feel like getting an opponent down to 10 could take some time so you are not getting the benefit of 6/6 and flying right away. That second ability is a really nice one in group play. Very political move and could get you some allies and at the very minimum keep people off your back.
I think more board wipes are beneficial but doesn't have to be a problem. My go to is Day of Judgment just for low cost removal. Path to Exile for quick removal at the benefit of a land for the opponent.

Last_Laugh, what are your thoughts on the three signets and Talisman of Indulgence? I cut all four for Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, another land (37) and Stromkirk Noble. I am not sold on Stromkirk but he seemed the best of the one drop vampires I was not playing. This deck seems to need to go fast and both Moxes seem to fit that strategy.
I experimented with Glengarry's 29 Land Edgar deck. I could be wrong but I think it may be tough for it to win in a four person pod. I am trying to borrow some of the ideas that have synergy with your deck. Gone are some of the more expensive vampires:
These were replaced by mostly one and two mana vampires. I am playing Shared Animosity, Coat of Arms, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Eldrazi Monument. The first three really care more about the quantity of vampires over the quality.
I am also trying out Scapegoat which I borrowed from Glengarry. It seems in theory to be a card that mitigates the damage done from board wipes.
I am not playing Phyrexian Arena, Heirloom Blade or Greed. I have only cast Dark Prophecy once but it was effective. I am playing additional life gain vampires and may be able to negate some of the life loss.
What do you think? With which of the points are you in most disagreement?

I'm wondering about the Blood Baron of Vizkopa having protection from white and black. Maybe someone can comment if he works well with Edgar Markov's second ability adding counters. I read it as he wouldn't be able to benefit from the counters when Edgar attacks. If that is the case, having a 10/10 flyer is cool, but you can make anything similar way stronger as often as Edgar attacks or with Blade of the Bloodchief. Of course if you run Sorin Markov then you can use that second ability to put Blood Baron of Vizkopa into that beefed up mode pretty quickly.
Ascendant Evincar is nice but keep in mind that it effects your red and white creatures as well. Shouldn't be an issue with all the counters Edgar gives out, but it is something to be aware of.
Vampire Nocturnus might have a home in this deck to help with extra power and flying for vampires. I also really like Cliffhaven Vampire in this deck with all the life gain (or any card with extort for that matter).
Also, Falkenrath Gorger because why not? Just keeps you protected from any sort of discard in our playgroup.
Patriarch's Bidding for the removal that is bound to happen since everyone seems to want to target this deck lol.
I'm sure there are some other vamps I'm missing, but I'll keep you posted on what I look into.
Welcome to the site (and the vampire brotherhood haha)
