Bloodhall Priest Discussion
1 week ago
Thanks for the feedback, Silver_Lining2.
About your deck, how competitive are you trying to be and in what direction are you trying to take the deck?
Bloodhall Priest is not bad on its face but it starts to fall short if you compare it too closely to other vamps. Its too little damage and too expensive for aggro and being empty handed is not what midrange wants to be doing. Typically we can access damage easier by just stacking lords. We dont need to abide by any hand restriction to do that. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet will gain you more life. Sanctum Seeker will reward you better for dumping your hand, Olivia Voldaren is evasive. Even some three mana lords will equate to better damage output.

I like this! I've got a very similar build over at Rakdos Vampires. Could you check it out and see what you think? Also, what do you think of Bloodhall Priest? He's a Shock on a stick, with madness, and a good body to boot.

Exsanguinate would go well with all the mana acceleration.
Collective Brutality is versatile.
Maybe look into some madness cards. You have plenty of outlets for being able to cast the madness cost.
Voldaren Pariah, From Under the Floorboards, Stromkirk Occultist, Bloodhall Priest (I think might be one of the best fits), Incorrigible Youths, Avacyn's Judgment, I could go on with some more but I feel like I'm suggesting too many at once haha

I recommend a slightly more aggressive approach, focusing a little more on the madness mechanic. For that, you could add Furyblade Vampire or Ravenous Bloodseeker to enable madness and Incorrigible Youths as a payoff. Further, i suggest Insolent Neonate as a better one-dropt. To not run out of steam, you can add more Tormenting Voice and 2-3 Asylum Visitor.
Things to get rid of:
- Defiant Bloodlord -> this is not primarily a lifegain deck & the mana cost are way too high.
- Zulaport Cutthroat -> only useful with mass creatures (e.g. token strategies) or sac strategies.
- Visions of Brutality -> i don't see any synergy
- Diabolic Tutor -> make your deck consistent by playing 4 of each important card and you don't need tutors. they slow you down too much.
- Pick the Brain -> sideboard
- Blood Mist -> unsure about this one. you already get first strike from Stensia Masquerade but the cards work well together. But you want more creatures. So at least go down a copy...

If you just want cards from Hour and Amonkhet in your deck you should change the deck to Standard instead of Modern. While the deck will also be Modern legal, if it contains no Modern cards, could be misleading.
Cycle synergies from Hour and Amonkhet:
Other discard synergies in Standard right now:
If you want to get into Modern with this strategy, these cards can be good:

Gearhead93 thank you for your comment, i really like your suggestions. Bloodhall Priest is definitely going to be in the main board, maybe replacing a very situational Hollow One. and we can only hope that Collective Brutality goes down a bit after cycling out of standard (even though its played throughout the format). i looked at it and loved it, but shuddered at the price, definitely an include if i stop being a cheap bastard but that doesn't look like any time soon. I really like your other suggestions as bloodrage is basically a lesser goyf, and Lightning Axe can help with bigger creatures, axe will probably be in the sideboard and brawler i will try to slip into the main somehow. thank you for your contributions.

Maybe add Bloodrage Brawler, Collective Brutality or Lightning Axe to keep pressure on your opponent while still pitching cards, though I understand if brutality is too costly. Perhaps just include some madness cards like Fiery Temper, or Bloodhall Priest?
Really like this though. A really fresh idea with what I think is a good amount of potential.
