Bloodthirsty Aerialist might be a good fit.

Also, Bloodghast in ANY vampire deck is ballin. but then you get into needing expensive cards to make his pay offs the best.

Budget crack lands Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse get the job done, but they'll be a turn slower than some of the more expensive cards like Prismatic Vista and Fabled Passage.

I just found a neat boost for Blood Seeker recently. Paired him up with 4 Forbidden Orchard and Illness in the Ranks if you think his tokens are going to be a problem.

Good luck! DasButch

I was finally able to get it to where I want it thanks to your help :)

  • I was a little ambitious with Burglar Rat as I was hoping it would over perform with Yarok interactions. If all the pieces are within reach I can potentially trigger up to a 4 card discard, but not exactly in line with what the deck wants to do, so I removed it to keep focus.

  • I decided on keeping Plague Mare as I feel its got high potential to keep me safe. Indestructible and hexproof tend to be pretty prevalent in our meta and this guy helps kill them by bring toughness to zero, while only targeting my opponents creatures. Yarok + any Flicker affect = -4/-4, which is a respectable one sided wipe. It's cheaper than In Garruk's Wake (which I opted to remove since I cant fish it out with pod effects), and helps me climb up the ladder. I also added Massacre Wurm since it had a price drop. They kinda act like child and parent here haha.

  • Took out Teferi's Time Twist cuz screw that guy.

  • Orc Sureshot was just as ambitious as Burglar Rat. I thought that since I'm creating so many tokens it might be cool to benefit and pick of giant threats on the board, but in playtesting he didn't impact very much and often times I ended up podding to move up to better pieces. I also removed Blood Seeker for the same reason.

  • I thought Sailor of Means would be cool for some burst mana, but it being temporary really feels lackluster. I run Pitiless Plunderer in my Korvold Deck and he is a power house for sure, but I don't feel like I kill enough of my creatures consistently enough for him to perform here. I added a Farhaven Elf to get some more permanent mana to play with.

All great suggestions, I appreciate you taking a look. I still owe you a few deck checks myself haha.

Blood Seeker Archfiend of Depravity Archfiend of Despair lots of demons The Haunt of Hightower sort of Demons have a bunch but they arent very mana efficient Hushbringer is a fantastic card and shuts off a lot of decks.

I have a very similar build myself. I will say one thing that I would add to your list would be Crystal Shard. Awesome for saving your dudes from removal and sets up recasting creatures for even more etb effects. Erratic Portal and Equilibrium have similar effects. Personally, I would add all three of those and maybe cut Blood Seeker, Lotus Cobra, and Meren of Clan Nel Toth (cuts are tricky in these lists - that's just my opinion obviously). Good luck and happy brewing!

OUT: Malakir Bloodwitch - Mathas, Fiend Seeker - Rakish Heir - Cruel Celebrant

IN: Viscera Seer - Vampire Cutthroat - Blood Seeker - Gatekeeper of Malakir

I try to fit in more 1 and 2 drops. But its damn hard to make cuts. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth and Sangromancer where also in for the cuts (mostly becaus they are CMC 4&5) but both CAN provide greate value. often Sangromancer saved my ass

Main things I'd cut: Sangromancer , Vindictive Vampire , Bloodcrazed Paladin , Blood Seeker , Temporal Extortion , Exquisite Blood . I don't think the lifegain does too much here.

Definitely add: Skullclamp (one of the best cards in the deck), Dusk Legion Zealot low impact, but you generally want to get a bunch of creatures out early, Viscera Seer super strong and again, this is a deck where you really want to start out strong, Painful Truths (the best draw spell in Mardu), Indulgent Aristocrat (super strong way to aggro people out while also getting a board presence early), Yahenni, Undying Partisan this just doesn't ever die and gets very big

I'd recommend: Nihil Spellbomb (I think this is almost always a mustplay in black.)
