Blood Crypt Discussion

Xatta on Mono Black Blood Moon

I have to keep fetches to a minimum because of Blood Moon, and Polluted Delta sometimes throws people off, and makes them think I'm Grixis. Any black fetch can find the Blood Crypts, so it really doesn't matter which I use.

Apostle's Blessing for Gods Willing. I recommend adding fetch lands like Bloodstained Mire, Arid Mesa, and shock-lands like Blood Crypt, and Godless Shrine (if this is a budget deck, disregard this comment)

Goblin Guide can replace Vexing Devil as well as Fatal Push could replace Shard Volley. Dark Ritual is sadly not legal in modern. Perhaps you could consider Blood Crypt and Bloodstained Mire for more accessible colors. Some good cards in your colors are Terminate, Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, and the 3 CMC Lilianas.

Try putting more 1 CMC creatures such as Rakdos Cackler, and taking out your creatures that take a lot of mana, like Excruciator, and seeing how that works

Also, it seems like you'd need more lands that enter untapped, like Dragonskull Summit or Blood Crypt

You could also replace Rakdos Carnarium with Rakdos Signet, if that's more your speed

Hope this helps!

No because that can fetch for Badlands, Blood Crypt, Plateau, Sacred Foundry. Definitely way more valuable than a basic mountain when you consider that! :)

If anything I'd swap for Arid Mesa or Marsh Flats but I just don't have the funds for those at the moment.

I like where this is going however you should aim for 60 cards as going over only hurts your chances of drawing the cards you need. Duress doesn't need to be here, if anything Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize are just better options if you really want to play with disruption. Shock doesn't need to be here at all, it's simply taking up space. Instead use Victim of Night or Murder for some additional removal. Personally, I would drop Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Bloodmad Vampire (good cards but not really a fit here) and replace them with Vampire Nocturnus. Malakir Bloodwitch is another card that I don't see the benefit of having. Having it in hand slows down your deck; that said, if your goal is purely life gain then it makes sense, but then the other cards in the deck make me think life-gain is just an added bonus, not a focus, otherwise I would recommend Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond for that combo. I like the use of Vampire Cutthroat too many vamp decks neglect this card and use Pulse Tracker instead, but Cutthroat, in my opinion, is just as good especially if the game lasts longer. And finally, there is the mana, things like Blood Crypt are beneficial but not a must.

Wizno on Tribal Vamps

First off, welcome to the world of EDH! I think you'll find it's definitely one of the most fun formats you'll experience. As someone who has played tribal vampires before, I think I can offer you some suggestions based on my experience. Now I'm not sure what you're budget is for cards so feel free to ignore any suggestions that are out of your budget range.

Vampires are tricky because they don't have as much tribal support as say Goblins, Elves, or even Zombies so you really want the best they have to offer. I think that 44 creatures is a bit too high, even for a tribal deck, so I would cut and refine some of your weaker vampires.

Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Vampire Nocturnus
Necropolis Regent
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Rakish Heir
Pawn of Ulamog
Markov Blademaster
Mirri the Cursed
Malakir Bloodwitch

These are a few ideas of some very powerful vampires that could easily be swapped in for some of the less optimal brood.

As with any EDH deck, your mana base is going to always be tweaked and upgraded to make your plays faster and more reliable. Now this is something you can do over time and as budget allows but some major lands to consider are:

Blood Crypt
Graven Cairns
Shadowblood Ridge
Rakdos Carnarium
Temple of Malice
Sulfurous Springs
Tainted Peak
Dragonskull Summit
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
Cabal Coffers
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Now the latter 3 lands are included for explosive ramping and because I've found most tribal vampire decks are more black than red. Another thing to keep in mind is that generally, you don't want less than 36 lands in your deck unless you have a lot of mana rocks to support less. Olivia is a very mana hungry commander so I would suggest about 38 lands.

Along similar lines, I would include the following mana rocks to further ramp/filter your mana:

Rakdos Signet
Sol Ring
Talisman of Indulgence
Darksteel Ingot/Commander's Sphere

While not traditional "ramp", Urza's Incubator can be very helpful in this deck since vampires tend to be a bit higher mana costed.

You'll want to include a few cards to help you draw more cards just to get more power from the deck. There's a lot of options out there but one card I strongly suggest is Phyrexian Arena.

The same goes for your removal. A little spot removal and a few board wipes should have you covered.

Two pieces of equipment I feel no Olivia deck should be without are Basilisk Collar and Blade of the Bloodchief.

If you want another powerful combo for the deck besides the two blood enchantments, you could look at Bloodchief Ascension+Mindcrank.

I hope these ideas help! Best of luck to you with your deck!
