Kingtalk on The Black Oath

I run a black oath deck as my pet mono-black deck, he's a great commander with a lot of versatility. Here's a couple cards that might be worthwhile. I like Bloodghast but personally I run Endless Cockroaches just because it's way cheaper and kinda funny. Consuming Vapors is a pretty good way to weed out the board and gain life in the process. Behold the Beyond is a pretty good tutor despite it's cost, and Diabolic Revelation can be a win-con depending on how hard you ramp. I would cut Cellar Door because it's too expensive and unreliable. Stronghold Assassin is a cheaper option in comparison to Attrition and Murder might do you a bit better than Premature Burial. Anowan, the Ruin Sage is good for group sac as is Magus of the Abyss. Archfiend of Depravity helps keep your opponent's board state low. I like Corpse Harvester and Corpse Augur as well. Personally, I'd cut Bloodline Keeper  Flip because for his price he isn't worth it because this isn't a vampire tribal deck. Hell's Caretaker and Doomed Necromancer are good for recursion. Fleshbag Marauder is worthwhile too I think for group sac. I'm also a big fan of Palace Siege and Oversold Cemetery for passive recursion. Flesh Carver has also won me a lot of games, the intimidate is very powerful. I'd consider running Westvale Abbey  Flip as well, potentially a win-con. Shade's Form and Pestilence are also pretty good enchantments. I would substitute Sorin Markov for Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, he's a sac outlet as well as a big body and you can recur his effect and even use it to bring yourself back up to 20 life. Infernal Offering is also a pretty useful card in my experience. Maybe consider Alhammarret's Archive too if you want to make your card draw and life gain more impactful. Those are just a few suggestion, hope it's helpful!! Mono-black is my passion haha

Not sure if this is the correct place to post, but the 2/2 Vampire token created by Bloodline Keeper  Flip doesn't have an image.

Personally, to start, you’ll want to drop out Blood Artist, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, and the Bloodline Keeper  Flip. After taking these out, you can look at some decent 1/3/4 drops for a Rakdos vampire deck. These include; Falkenrath Gorger, Vampire Lacerator, Captivating Vampire, and Vampire Nocturnus. All of these will prove to increase the power in your creature section. For your manabase, all I can say is it appears that you are budgeting it right now. If you get the time or money, try out maybe Blood Crypt. You already have the right idea with the Foreboding Ruins. And lastly, removal in a Rakdos deck is key. Personally, I’d swap out those Terminate’s with Dreadbores, and maybe the Lightning Bolts out for something like Fatal Push. I will admit, however, that your current brew looks very similar to my first brew. So I will say now, you are definitely on the right track. P.S. try swapping out Vampire Nighthawk with some Bloodghasts.

So basically, I think this deck just needs some more focus. Have you heard of the rule of 9? It’s where you pick 9 cards that are going to be the core of your deck, adding 4 of each of them, and then adding 24 lands. That gets you to 60. Then you can mess with it from there. It’s a great way to trim the fat and make sure the decks you build operate efficiently.

Aside from that, just some random things.

Wit's End is incredibly expensive to use at 7 mana to do something that doesn’t really have much to do with anything. If you’re gonna spend that much, you’ll want it to be something like a complete board wipe or some game changing combo.

Grisly Spectacle is just unnecessary. You don’t need the mill that comes with it. You’re better off just adding another Murder.

Another thing, being a vampire tribal deck, you have an opportunity to take huge advantage of your creature type being uniform, and you aren’t really capitalizing on it.

All that in mind, here are just some random cards to look at.

Anowon, the Ruin Sage

Bloodline Keeper  Flip

Feast of Blood

Indulgent Aristocrat

Kalastria Highborn

Pulse Tracker

Sanctum Seeker

Stromkirk Captain

Urge to Feed

Sanguine Bond

Exquisite Blood

Bloodchief Ascension

Merieke Ri Berit, Preacher and Beguiler of Wills could be fun since you can sac what you steal :O Magewright's Stone and Thousand-Year Elixir would allow you to use Ertai multiple times per round. Intruder Alarm would be especially good here if you ran things like Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Thraben Doomsayer. Mimic Vat seems useful as well given all your ETB-effect creatures. Dovescape could be a silly way to dominate the game, especially if you have Guile or Lullmage Mentor out.

I would definitely run more than 31 lands in a deck like this. Maybe remove redundant/low card advantage stuff like Render Silent, Fact or Fiction, and Counterspell and try to increase your land count?

Cool deck! Upvoted :)

Hi sharkemental,

This looks pretty good! I would like to suggest the following vampires for you. Some of my suggestions are a bit more expensive (and I know you want to keep this deck as budget as possible). The only reason I am suggesting them is that they are great value in your deck and can truly be game-changers for you (imho):

Hope this helps any. And should you have the time and inclination, I would appreciate any suggestions you might have for one of my EDH decks (just pick one (or more)). Happy brewing and playing!

Regards,

Right! That makes much more sense! Anyway, I'll keep an eye on the deck, Esper vampires definitely looks like an interesting concept. And so far, the list looks cool, so I'll check for when the list is finished! :D

Also, I was thinking that Mill Vampires could be pretty spicy. Like, having a heavy control shell, and some stuff like Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker to close the game, or Bloodline Keeper  Flip that can close a game pretty fast! I mean, maybe that's a different deck, but Vampires with blue is something quite unexplored, I would say, so...

Anyway, have fun brewing! :D
