Bloodlord of Vaasgoth Discussion
1 day ago
I would consider cutting a few of the bigger creatures and putting Blood Artist and Blood Seeker in. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is another easy cut, in addition to Nocturnus. Generally, though, take a second look at all your high price vampires and consider running other combo pieces that will put you over the top, like Eldrazi Monument or Cathars' Crusade.

I like the idea of a vampire subtheme, it unintentionally works very well with what I feel like you're trying to do, and there's a ton of great support and synergy from the precon and ixalan stuff.

23 lands is not enough to support a 5 cmc creature. but in modern, 5 cmc is too high for a creature that doesnt provide immediate impact, which Bloodlord of Vaasgoth does not do. at best, he won't be played until turn 5, meaning you won't benefit from its effect until turn 6. the game could easily be over before then. Distress is strictly weaker than Inquisition of Kozilek and especially Thoughtseize. you have too many lands that enter tapped which greatly throws off your curve. fetchlands, shocklands, and even checklands (Dragonskull Summit) would be a direct upgrade over Foreboding Ruins and your other lands that will enter tapped. instead of running 2 copies of so many things, pick the best ones and run 4 for much better consistency. if you want to benefit from Vampire Nocturnus, i would say that at MOST run no more than 1 card that isn't black. any card with red in its casting cost, should also have black in its casting cost so that Vampire Nocturnus can stay active. Curse of the Pierced Heart is just too slow. you'd be much better off with a Lightning Bolt. with the release of "Rivals of Ixalan", adding white for Legion Lieutenant is also viable.

Thanks for the warning, I confess I did not remember that part when building the deck. Luckily it's just inconvinience that I can work around.
Here is some cards I think you could remove: Braid of Fire, Ghostly Prison, Rakdos's Return, Fire Covenant, Debt to the Deathless, sanctum seeker, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Falkenrath Gorger and Bloodlord of Vaasgoth.
I tried to keep in mind what you are trying to do do but maybe it's too much? To my eye your deck is Vampire tribal with comboes with a lot of removal, return from the grave thingies and pillowfort.
For the lands, that's for you to decide and test out what works but I would suggest at least to add the mardu colored pain lands: Caves of Koilos, Sulfurous Springs and Battlefield Forge. If you make a lot of tokens Westvale Abbey Flip would work, also I would use Temple of the False God.

I would recommend a personal favorite Vampire Nighthawk the value he brings is very high and with all the vampire buff you have will grow very scary while filling your life up. Another addition would be Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, this will let you start with bigger vamps that will get buffed faster. One vampire I find essential to any vamp deck is Captivating Vampire this makes your vampires bigger and will let you steal your opponent's best creatures. I understand he is a little squishy and easy to take out but I think that you could buff him up fast enough to make him last. I like the deck and this it will be a lot of fun to play!!

If you have someone that has graveyard shenanigans you might want Bojuka Bog after they sacrifice their creature so they can't get it back.
Another land you could use is Crypt of Agadeem, say after you're done sacrificing your non vampires you can get a lot of mana or even use it after a board wipe.
More cards you can use ill save the explaining- Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Ascendant Evincar, Defiant Bloodlord, Stromkirk Condemned, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Heirloom Blade, Bloodchief Ascension, Phyrexian Reclamation, Liliana Vess.

Frank_Glascock very fair point about Bloodghast! Returning to your hand would make it more powerful in this deck, so its not as crazy in this deck as it is in others, but I still think its a strong 2 drop.
