Bloodlord of Vaasgoth Discussion

Wizno on Muster the Night Breed EDH

I've run vampires before but they are a tricky tribe since they do have some support but not as much as other tribes. The biggest problems I've found are that the best vampires are expensive (mana and money wise) and the game is a bit grindier. So you have to be ready to play the long game but their life-gain abilities help keep you in the game.

Budget pending, I would recommend cutting out some of your weaker non-vampire creatures for the following:

Captivating Vampire
Drana, Liberator of Malakir
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
Nirkana Revenant
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Necropolis Regent
Vampire Nocturnus
Malakir Bloodwitch
Dark Impostor
Blood Artist
Markov Blademaster
Kalastria Highborn
Falkenrath Gorger
Falkenrath Aristocrat
Stromkirk Condemned
Gatekeeper of Malakir
Pawn of Ulamog

The thing to keep in mind with vampires is most tribal decks that use Olivia will be mostly Black with a bit of Red. So you need to accelerate your Black mana production more. You've got some solid mana rocks but here are a few additional ideas:

Nirkana Revenant
Crypt Ghast
Caged Sun
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers
Crypt of Agadeem

Increasing your card draw is my final recommendation. Black offers tons of ways to draw cards but I recommend Phyrexian Arena the most.

I hope this helps! Best of luck!

Pretty cool start, I like vampires and tribal themes. You can look at EDH vampire decks to look at a big list of vamp cards, that's what I do when I make a new deck. But some quick suggestions, if you're willing to spend the money, would Blood Artist, Bloodghast, Obelisk of Urd, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Kalastria Highborn, Nirkana Revenant, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Olivia Voldaren, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Heir of Falkenrath  Flip. Haha lots of cards that include "blood" in their names.

Would Drana, Liberator of Malakir fit in your deck? My vampire deck also contains Bloodlord of Vaasgoth. It's a bit more expensive to cast than your average vampire, but it has the potential to makes all your other creatures a heck of a lot stronger.

Also, since you've got several lifegain cards, would Phyrexian Arena or even Necropotence be nice to increase your draw a bit? Also some additional tutors would be nice, Diabolic Tutor or maybe even Demonic Tutor or Vampiric Tutor.

Although i dont quite get what is the aim of the deck (as in win-con, aggro? mid range? i'm a noob so those are hard for me to make out at the first glance.) i can suggest Vampire Nocturnus, Call the Bloodline to get an easier transformed Keeper, Alms of the Vein or Bloodlord of Vaasgoth.

Hope it helps!

You missed one of the best vampires: Captivating Vampire.

Other than that, you are bringing too many 5 cmc cards. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is a real edh staple, I think, but if you are far enough ahead to actually play it, AND deal damage to your opponent, the bonus it provides are entirely redundant (it's a win-more card).

What is it exactly you are going to sac to your Indulgent Aristocrat? As far as I can tell, it takes a very non-interacting opponent to let you have enough vampires to sac anything and gain advantage from it. You don't have any tokens from Bloodline Keeper  Flip until turn 5 at earliest, and the rest of your deck doesn't hold much sac-fodder.

Vampire Nocturnus is a pretty good lord for vampires, but is a lot better if you have some way of shuffling your library or otherwise rearrange what is on top of it).

Any other competitive tribal deck runs faster than this (including madness-vampires... what was your problem with that again?) and are more resilient. Your early creatures in particular are weaker than what merfolk, humans, and elves can bring. Gurmag Swiftwing isn't exactly the strongest creature, and most opponents have no problem letting it live, and instead bolt the lord you play a couple of turns later.

Your removal is also a bit heavy - 3 mana is a lot, in a world of Fatal Push and Path to Exile. For budget concerns, you could look at Victim of Night. It's only bad in the mirrormatch, and that's probably not going to come up very often.

This looks like fun, you are short on discard outlets though, might I suggest replacing Stromkirk Noble with Insolent Neonate. Also, like you said Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is mana intensive maybe switch him out for more removal like Terminate or even more discard like Stromkirk Condemned
