Infinite vampire tokens:

Bloodline Keeper  Flip + Intruder Alarm

Infinite Damage:

Bloodline Keeper  Flip + Intruder Alarm + Purphoros, God of the Forge / Impact Tremors

Infinite Mill:

Bloodline Keeper  Flip + Intruder Alarm + Phenax, God of Deception . (This one you create a ton of tokens to mill, tap all except Bloodline Keeper  Flip and once all are tapped create another vampire to untap them all. You then repeat this).

Hi Rez09,

Thanks for the comment. Good stuff.

You're right, the deck tries to benefit of both the madnes effect and vampire's synergies. I agree, there are not many creatures with madness in the deck. On the first glance. Falkenrath Gorger is key here. He gives all vampires (100% of creatures in the deck) madness even though it is at normal cost. In combination with card drawing cards, like Tormenting Voice , Asylum Visitor or Risk Factor you keep your hand healthy and you keep up the paste since the mana curve is extremely left skewed.

It is a stretch to have those topics combined in one deck. You definitely have to forego some of the cards you mention just because you don't have enough space or the overall synergies are too low. Originally, the third theme of the deck was a creature destroy/hand control component encircled around Liliana of the Veil , but she is crazy expensive. The theme is still active though.

I really like your suggestion Fiery Temper . It is basically a Lightning Bolt . Heir of Falkenrath  Flip is definitely a card I must add. Same with Bloodhall Priest and Drana. I will kick out Olivia, Mobilized for War in return.

What are your thoughts on Bloodline Keeper  Flip? Doesn't fit imo. Goes in the direction Indulgent Aristocrat , which I would not play either in this deck.

Perhaps, the overall combination is better suited in a Commander deck – what do you think?

Cheers, John

Good thoughts The_Fallen_Duke.

I like the faster land suggestions. The biggest reason I’m using Dimir Aqueduct is Profane Command . I’ve found the extra mana (when it finally gets there) useful when facing “Indestructable” creatures or need to remove that last point of life. The versatility of Profane Command has been really useful. Faster lands like you suggest definitely might be worth trying though.

As to Bloodline Keeper  Flip, the thought here is that the Cryptoplasm s and Phyrexian Metamorph s give you options for whichever “real” monster you get in your hand first. Get the one Grave Titan , copy that and mob. Get one of the three Vampire Nighthawk s, copy that early on, play Bloodline Keeper  Flip, copy Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and mob. Or if your opponent has particularly beefy creatures, you copy their stuff till you board-wipe, having nickeled-and-dimed their life total the whole game.

So the first thing I notice is that your curve is really heavy here. For cEDH, you want to look at playing cheaper cards so that you can eitehr do more thing s in a turn or so you can respond without having to leave lots of mana open. For that reason, stuff like Capsize , Sheoldred, Whispering One , Fleet Swallower , etc. should be cut for cheaper cards.

One other thing I notice is that you have fallen ito a bit of a calssic trap where you have included lots of combo outlets once you've assembled your combo but a lot less in the way of actually assembling the combo. Having three outlets that only work with Bloodline Keeper  Flip and don't really do muc houtside of the combo is a bit of a waste of slots. Similarly, adding an infinite mana line (which is not compatible with your keeper line) means that you can end up with a half of each combo in hand but are not able to end the game. I would recommend trying to consolidate your combo into more of a common theme with redundant parts rather than having lots of completely separate combos.

You also devote a large number of cards to resetting Mairsil, far more than you need to. Ultimately, your commander should either be able to form a combo with only a few cards, or should act as reduncancy on your combo. It kind of feels like you're runnig a lot of "reset for value" cards and these aren't very good in cEDH, especially since oyu're not playing a stax deck where the name of the game is attrition (and that is not a recommndation to turn this into a stax deck).

Darkshadow327 on Building My First cEDH Deck

3 weeks ago

So recently I've had the idea to build my first cEDH deck based off of my modern deck HOW MANY VAMPIRES DO YOU HAVE?!?!?! *Primer*. While I know it won't be super Tier 1, I want to get it as strong as possible.

With Mairsil, the Pretender as commander the plan is to create infinite vampires through Bloodline Keeper  Flip + Intruder Alarm . You then can win through attacking, infinite damage with Purphoros, God of the Forge or Impact Tremors , or mill opponents out with Phenax, God of Deception . Also, I Should probably mention that I don't really have a meta since I only am only really able to really play online.
