ilovemydoghisnameistuna I actually ended up cutting it, Im currently thinking of cutting Bloodghast. I am looking for a good finisher besides resurrecting Phyrexian Obliterator.

Maybe these are a little too small-time for your tastes, but I think that having a few more cards like Yavimaya Elder, Bloodghast and even Mitotic Slime around would ensure you always have ideal sacrifice fodder for Vaevictis's ability. If you go deep enough, they can also be plugged into things like Attrition as another option.

Hey PyroSwardsman

Thanks for the comments! You are correct about farseek over rampant growth. I don't have many non basics but it is still strictly better than rampant since it gives me the option. I don't have Rancor in the deck since I want the main wincon to be token related. Either by a large attack, Purphoros, God of the Forge damage, or sac to Goblin Bombardment. That's just my personal preference though. Not against swinging in with the commander. Just not plan A. Bloodghast is a great suggestion. I'll have to find a spot for it. I just changed this from a Lord Windgrace deck so I hadn't updated to add those sac synergies yet. Thanks!

why run Farseek over Rampant Growth? Rancore is a pretty sweet card in this deck and is recyclable with korvold's ability. I would also suggest Bloodghast works well with korvold and landfall as well.

darkdexterminate I completely understand where you’re coming from here, and I think some of these cards will definitely end up in the deck. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord especially, I will put in the deck as soon as I can get them, and similarly with the removal package for the deck. Dash Hopes also looks like a really cool card that I’m definitely thinking about too. Unfortunately, I am working with a very tight budget so I’m not so sure whether cards like Liliana, the Last Hope, Bloodghast and Thoughtseize would be possible includes in the near future, what with their fairly substantial price tags. Thanks for your advice though, it’s been helpful.

Hello, your deck has some potential. Just some advices:

  1. I think you should replace Grasp of Darkness for Dismember, that -1/-1 extra could be truly useful for some tanky creatures. Also, you can distribute those mana as you want. That extra mana/life is worth of being paid.

  2. Victim of Night for something like Hero's Downfall, Fatal Push, Gatekeeper of Malakir, etc.

  3. Cordial Vampire is a must since Modern Horizons was released. You must play it. It doesnt only go well with your removal, it goes well with chomp blocks, or even if you consider that Gatekeeper of Malakir that I mentioned before, It could be truly awesome.

  4. There are some planeswalker that could fit truly well in this deck, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord, you could make some nasty combos like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord + Bloodlord of Vaasgoth at turn 3; Liliana, the Last Hope can help you to get some of your vampires in safe goal, even if you put that Cordial Vampire mentioned before, you could be buffing your vampires meanwhile removing some tiny things, like mana fixers.

  5. Asylum Visitor seems pretty week and have a hard condition in some decks, you could sustitute it for Phyrexian Arena or something annexed to tribal deck.

  6. Some cards like Urge to Feed, Shadow Alley Denizen, Bloodghast, Thoughtseize, Dash Hopes, Collective Brutality, could be some cards interesting to contemplate.

Liliana of the Veil works with Bloodghast and to a lesser extent Relentless Dead.

With the way your deck is evolving, it is starting to look more and more like an orzhov smallpox list. Some stuff I would say about that is that you really need to make sure smallpox doesn't end up being card disadvantage for you, because in most cases, its just card disadvantage or break even. To do that, you need to maximize your Flagstones of Trokair and Bloodghast type cards. I'd run the full 4 Lingering Souls because of that. Also, a card thats worth looking at is Fetid Heath to fix your mana since you have black cards like Liliana of the Veil and Smallpox, which can be awkward to get out with lands like Flagstones of Trokair out. most smallpox decks run 4 Liliana of the Veil, but Cabal Therapist may fill some of the role it does, I don't know though. One last thing that I would say is that Vengeful Pharaoh is a card that seems to slot into smallpox, but no one ever seems to include.

hope this helps.
