So, after playing a few games with my friend against his vampire tribal deck, I learned that getting Nythos really helps the deck. We played three games real quick to test the deck out.Game One:I Journey to Nowhere 'd his Vampire Nighthawk , dropped Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx , Angel of Jubilation and a few other spells. That allowed me to ramp into Akroma, Angel of Wrath and the game spiraled from there. Serra Angel was tossed in there somewhere, and I managed to get enough devotion to white to cast Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Day of Judgment in the next turn. That ended the game.
Game Two:This game actually went very poorly. I got Thran Dynamo out on turn 4, but very little ramp, no board wipes, and my opponent getting out a Nykthos very early and flooding the field with vampires really ruined the game. He got out both an Olivia Voldaren and a Captivating Vampire , and it became impossible for me to hold onto creatures. After a few turns back and forth of me dropping some angels and having them stolen, he won pretty solidly.
Game Three:This game went by in no time at all. I was on the play and dropped a Sol Ring off of a plains, and then Lightning Greaves off of the ring. Turn two, Urza's Incubator calling angels. His turn 2, he dropped a Bloodghast . Turn three, I cast Guardian Seraph , equipped the greaves and swung in for 3. His turn, he dropped a Bloodline Keeper Flip and swung in with Bloodghast again. My turn 4, I dropped Light from Within and swung for 5, he blocked with the Bloodline Keeper Flip . After nothing meaningful on my opponents turn, I dropped Avacyn, Angel of Hope equipped her with the greaves, and swung in for 16. In response, he scooped.
Overall, a very nice three games. When it wins, it's because I'm able to drop angels early and starting dropping damage. The games I lose, I'm stuck on low mana and no good angels to hit with. My angels are vulnerable to removal, which is an issue, especially effects that aren't destroy, such as exile and Mind Control effects.
I'm enjoying it so far, and am probably done adding cards to it for a while, at least I can get some more money.
Comments and +1's are appreciated.
i think you may try Liliana of the Dark Realms to make those X cost insanely huge
The Wizard has say a spell and contemplated an answer for thine question.hath though considered R/B vampires with the addition of Falkenrath Aristocrat and Stromkirk Captain ? The captain is a leave or take card but the aristocrat can end a game paired with a nocturnus. And NEVER underestimate what Bloodline Keeper Flip can do. He is your biggest bomb
As amazing as Read the Bones is I think it should either be removed or complimented with more black. Some good black cards that can add to your tokens are Bloodline Keeper Flip , Pack Rat , Bitterblossom (love that it got unbanned in modern), Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts (high mana cost though so I would recommend 1-2 of or possibly side), additionally if you see your deck producing a steady supply of tokens Eldrazi Monument could be a possibility.
I'd suggest stick with two colours,since black has the best of the lot. I'd also suggest dropping 2x Blood Baron of Vizkopa since the deck is already mana cost heavy and put in 2x AEther Vial then get it up to 4 counters and just slap Vampire Nocturnus or Bloodline Keeper Flip on your opponents end step.
DX Why u have little to no Vampires? Here are a list I suggest if you want to have some loyalty to your general: Rakish Heir , Gatekeeper of Malakir , Falkenrath Marauders , Stromkirk Captain , Bloodlord of Vaasgoth , Vampire Interloper , Stromkirk Noble , Bloodline Keeper Flip , Blade of the Bloodchief , Havengul Vampire , Viscera Seer , Skeletal Vampire , Vampiric Fury , Skeletal Vampire , and Mephidross Vampire . Hopefully that helps.
