Bxbx on Leviathan Edgar Markov IXN

Hi,

first of all I like the low mana curve of your deck. This is how Edgar Markov should be played!

Hi,

my strategy for making your deck faster is:

  1. putting in more cheap vampires as this synergises with your commander more: Insolent Neonate, Kheru Mind-Eater, Guul Draz Assassin, Viscera Seer, Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Bairn, Vampire Aristocrat, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Malakir Cullblade. This way you can swarm the board early while en passant generating tokens, then attack with Edgar Markov on turn 6.

  2. putting in some ultra aggressive cards. Alongside tokens Mercadia's Downfall can be devastating, for example. Another one would be Mirror Entity. Note that this one is also a vampire and that the +1/+1-counters stay on the creatures when you change their base power and toughness.

  3. cutting some of the more expenise and non-aggressive cards: Campaign of Vengeance, Stensia Masquerade and maybe you should reduce your lifegain/-loss subtheme if you want to go the faster route. Also Vanquisher's Banner is cool tech, but at 5 mana it may be too expensive

By the way: a card that can go absolutely crazy in token tribal decks is Mana Echoes. Unfortunately it is no budget card.

bushido_man96 mentioned some mass removals. Their asymetrical effect is nice but they also cost a lot of mana. Some other really good asymmetrical mass removals for token decks would be Austere Command, Fell the Mighty, Retribution of the Meek and Dusk.

That's all for now. Let me know what you think of my faster game plan.

first of all:

modern is a fast format. 5 and 4 mana spells or abilities that are 3 colored, like you have, are not likely to even hit the battlefield because you'll die before it even happens (in most cases). if those 5 & 4 drops are not important to you, i suggest removing them from the deck, and putting creatures like Bile Urchin, Bloodbriar, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bontu the Glorified, Child of Thorns , Corpse Hauler, Doomed Necromancer, Frostling, Mortician Beetle

spells like Altar's Reap, Bone Splinters, Collateral Damage, Crack the Earth, Eldritch Evolution, Fling, Footsteps of the Goryo, Infernal Plunge, Plunge into Darkness

noncreature permanents like Demonic Appetite, Evolutionary Leap, Quest for the Gravelord

and sideboarding Boggart Forager

i'll keep searching for you tomorrow, hope this helps for now

Bloodflow Connoisseur might be an option for you since it also stacks +1/+1 counters just like your other creatures do, although it is more expensive. It synergizes very well with your Mortician Beetle.

Death Cultist is an option to consider for one drops and Fume Spitter can work as fodder for Beetle and removal.

You might enjoy Carrion Feeder as a cheaper alternative to Bloodflow Connoisseur.

Relentless Dead and Weatherseed Treefolk(though treefolk sadly doesn't trigger aluren) give you alternatives to Endless Cockroaches or just more redundancy to get that effect out(and has a nice effect on relentless of letting you bring back Carrion Feeder

My only worry is you don't have anything to help your creature swing in. For a cheaper version of Grave Pact on a creature, try Abyssal Gatekeeper.

Tukatongue Thallid, Brindle Shoat, Doomed Dissenter and Blisterpod would give you tokens to churn more sacs out(and more bodies to throw on attacks say)

Dutiful Attendant doesn't return itself, but can wheel Wall of Blossoms or one of your key pieces back into your hand.

Young Wolf and Rendclaw Trow get you two sacs for one creature.

Love Aluren shenanigans! :D

Um, frankly, not really. It is one of the weaknesses of this deck I think. You want to play on every player's end step, which admittedly gets annoying for some players.

Putting some more creatures that get bigger with deaths (like Swarm of Bloodflies, Carrion Feeder, or Bloodflow Connoisseur) could be one method. Fallen Ideal is a sac outlet that can protect your commander (against damage based board wipes or removal) and gives evasion via flying, which could possibly make commander damage a sudden unexpected wincon.

I think one of the best (that is, fastest) strategies would be to use lifedraining effects of Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble,Grey Merchant of Asphodel, Tattered Mummy and possibly others, perhaps in combination with a token swarm strategy. In fact, an artifact token strategy with Marionette Master and Genesis Chamber could be a great way to go.

The problem is that this deck needs enough control elements to protect itself, since it is very much a glass cannon. Maybe consider more tutors - there are definitely some that I don't have just because of the costs. Buried Alive, Entomb, Vampiric Tutor, cheap reanimation like Reanimate, Animate Dead, and Exhume could help you assemble your engine faster. This deck is rather slow by nature of having a 5CMC commander, needing protection to keep it stable, and needing at least a few other creatures on board to do anything useful. This deck depends on building up a massive board state, which takes time.

If you find yourself consistently having a lot of mana available (via Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Black Market, etc) you might be able to make a card like Exsanguinate work as a wincon.
