Bloodthrone Vampire Discussion
1 week ago
Thank you very much for your suggestions! I will purchase this cards and try the deck around to see where I am most confortable with.
I mostly agree with your point of view, but i don't know if I'll cut the Bloodthrone Vampire becouse sometimes swinging with her and sacrificing at instant speed is what gives me the win.

ooh, I always love me an aristocrats deck. I know it is budget but I've got some suggestions (within budget) that can help improve this deck.
I used to play an aristocrats deck with Return to the Ranks. It was pretty medium. What I found out was, you will end up killing your op in one big turn where you sac everything and bring it back and sac again. It was never a little at a time because if I did it slowly, they would just remove the key pieces or win before I had a chance to bleed them out.
So with that in mind, here are my suggestions: recursive cards like Bloodsoaked Champion and Reassembling Skeleton are good for grinding, but not for explosive turns. What is best for that is cards like Doomed Traveler (which you have) and Hunted Witness (which you need). The reason they are explosive is because, without needing extra mana, they double each sacrifice. So with two Blood Artist effects in play and a recursion card you only need 2 dorks and a sac outlet (albeit that is 5 cards) to deal 19 dmg.
The other thing is, looking at your curve, you have way too many 2 drops. This was also a problem that I faced when I played the deck, it means that on turns 1 and 3, you often get stuck with extra mana laying around. Here is what I would suggest: replace Go for the Throat with Tragic Slip and replace Bloodthrone Vampire with Viscera Seer. That way you shift the cost towards 1 drops and can get cards out there faster.
The last thing, which I did not figure out, was card velocity. I could never get enough cards out fast enough. Many people suggested Collected Company but I wasnt about to pay 4 mana for two 1/1s. Others suggested ways to dump cards into my graveyard like Satyr Wayfinder and the like. But this exposed my deck even more to graveyard hate. Either way, all of this requires green which you don't have. So if you find yourself running out of card velocity, maybe try Night's Whisper or Read the Bones or a similar effect to that.
Hopefully my ramblings help. Let me know if you have any questions, and if you like my suggestions: check out my podcast all about brewing decks at mtgcoldbrew.buzzsprout.com (we're also on itunes and spotify)
P.S. cut those tap lands, you dont need the life gain and they will just slow you down.

Hi there, I feel like I'd go and drop the from the deck at first since it stretches your manabase a lot and Cursecatcher / Negate which could relatively easy replaced by discards spells such as Duress while / Slip Through Space could be turned into Korozda Guildmage and/or Rite of Consumption.
In case you feel like keeping a third color in, I'd rather concider going with white since it offers stuff like Promise of Bunrei and the like. Also, you might want to add one more Nantuko Husk clones such as Vampire Aristocrat or Bloodthrone Vampire for consistency. Cheers!

Don't know much about artifact sac outlets but as far as creature sac outlets go there's Viscera Seer, Carrion Feeder, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Blood Bairn, Nantuko Husk, Spawning Pit, Bloodthrone Vampire, Vampiric Rites, Disciple of Griselbrand, Altar's Reap, and Bone Splinters, Hell's Caretaker, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Phyrexian Plaguelord, and Whisper, Blood Liturgist off the top of my head. There's also Phyrexian Altar but it's not cheap. You can probably find more of these effects as well as artifact sac effects on gatherer.

+1 for Edgar Markov, one of the most badass Vamp Boss around.
I'd recommend lowering the CMC of the deck to around 3 or less if able to hasten the pace at which your treats hit the board.
Some useful vampires you can consider:
Dusk Legion Zealot and 1 life for 2 1/1 bodies and 1 card, pretty good deal.
Gifted Aetherborn An uncommon with Deathtouch, Lifelink, with P/T of 2/3 for just , nuff said.
Legion Lieutenant Vampire Lord is sexy.
Vampire Hexmage a.k.a Planeswalker Nemesis!
Viscera Seer one of my all time favorite, Sac outlet and Scry in 1 card.

Hi! What is the purpose of Fatal Push? Just to kill weenie creatures? I don't see fetch lands here or any other permanent to sacrifice. jgc10 is right: you should add Indulgent Aristocrat. I would also recommend to look at Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Bairn, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or any other Vampire card that utilizes sacrifice mechanic. All these cards should cooperate well with Blood Artist and/or Kalastria Highborn. Hope you'll find the solution. Good luck!

Well, there is Butcher of Malakir to be considered. Great for a $0.37 cent card. What you really need for the deck are sac outlets (Bloodthrone Vampire) and cards that benefit from creatures dieing. Like Scavenger Drake. Pawn of Ulamog helps out, too. Basically, you want to benefit from death (the aforementioned Doomed Dissenter) and punish opponents for deaths with cards like Selhoff Occultist or Rage Thrower). Thin out cards that don't care about either their own death or the death of others... Or bring other cards back from the graveyard, such as Whisper, Blood Liturgist

qwertyking Viscera Seer is pretty amazing, with some minor changes to focus even more on constant sac the deck would probably be a lot more consistent, but he's a bit too pricey for my liking, this was supposed to be dirt cheap :) Gonna add Bloodthrone Vampire and maybe a bit more fun and interactive Thoughtpicker Witch to the sideboard. Thanks for the input!
