Ahdor on Edgar Markov - Blood on the Table [EDH]

2 weeks ago

Change Notes:

Out: Bishop of Rebirth
In: Oversold Cemetery
Oversold Cemetery is way cheaper to cast then Bishop of Rebirth . It doesn't need as much conditions to be met, aswell.

Out: Butcher of Malakir
In: Purphoros, God of the Forge
Included another win condition with Purphoros, God of the Forge in exchange for a really expensive vampire which doesn't help the most important part of the deck.

Out: Fetid Heath
In: Fellwar Stone
Since the mana curve was lowered, one land can be cut for another piece of ramp.

Out: Kalastria Highborn
In: Gifted Aetherborn
Swaped out one vampire for another stronger one with important keywords.

Out: Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
In: Knight of the Ebon Legion
Changed another costly vampire for a cheaper one with strong upsides.

Out: Mathas, Fiend Seeker
In: Erebos, God of the Dead
Use life as a reassource with Erebos, God of the Dead , it's also way less specific then Mathas, Fiend Seeker 's effect.

Out: Bloodtracker
In: Expedition Map
Took out a costly vampire which has a specific effect for another piece of ramp, which is especially great for some of the utility lands (e.g. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth & Cabal Coffers ).

Out: Kindred Dominance
In: Vampire of the Dire Moon
Included another cheap vampire with strong keywords and took out a expesnive boardwipe.

Out: Sorin, Grim Nemesis
In: Throne of the God-Pharaoh
Swaped an expensive planeswalker for a cheap artifact which can act as a win condition.

Out: Boros Charm
In: Etchings of the Chosen
Swaped out a one time protection for a repeatable one.

Out: Vanquisher's Banner
In: Bolas's Citadel
Bolas's Citadel doesn't draw you cards, but you can even cheat vampires into play from the top of your deck.

championeggo on My first Vampire deck - still needs help

1 month ago

Bishop of the bloodstained (little value for a one time effect at 5 cmc) - Bloodlord Vaasgoth - Massacre Girl (Hurts you) - Anowon, the Ruin Sage (too Slow) - Tempt with Immortality (There are better graveyard cards than this and its just not good in this deck) - Eldest Reborn (Just no synergy with the deck) - The biggest issue I see if you have a lot of cards that bring stuff back from the graveyard. Vamps nor Edgar care about that truely unless that is just the route you want to go down. The only one I think you keep is Faith's Reward just in response to a board wipe, but its a dead card if someone cyclonic rifts or exiles all creatures. Your deck severely lacks card draw as well. A few vamps I suggest that are just plain good and help with draw.

Forerunner of the Legion and Vampire Nighthawk Champion of Dusk Bloodtracker Well of Lost Dreams Necropotence Phyrexian Reclamation Phyrexian Arena

Keep going with the theme you want but you need card draw to draw the cards you want, and you still want better vamps than some of the ones that are too slow or don’t really help all the vamps and cards in your maybe are amazing, and will lower your CMC too and the cards I listed above I think could also help. Good luck man!

Strangelove on Marchesa, the Black Rose EDH

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom

Don't forget Thraximundar and Warstorm Surge ...

Here are some houses:

Bloodtracker ... must have imo

Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?

Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone

Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone

Viscera Seer ... tier 1 version of Carrion Feeder

Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this

Treasonous Ogre ... seems good

Harvester of Souls ... + Damnation ?

Reef Worm ... endless worms

Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped

Drana, Liberator of Malakir ... yes... anything that lets you ignore the throne is amazing

Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+

Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes

Midnight Reaper ... yes

Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this

Goblin Bombardment ... yes

You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...

Ogre Slumlord

Overseer of the Damned

Ob Nixilis, Unshackled

Revel in Riches

If you count Merciless Executioner , Innocent Blood , etc, with wipes like Damnation , etc, you have 12 wipes and 5 removal... which is probably too much control.

To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...

Core Prowler ... maybe

Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out

Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice

Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet

...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.

Demons would also be pretty sweet:

Archfiend of Depravity ... wipe

Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice

Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice

Havoc Demon ... wipe

Indulgent Tormentor ... another Bloodgift Demon

Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?

Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good

Lord of the Void ... betrayal

Malfegor ... wipe?

Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe

Ravenous Demon  Flip... sacrifice Marchesa or take the 9 to get off the throne?

Reaper from the Abyss ... removal

Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor

Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal

Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

Font of Agonies only triggers off five cards in your list. Maybe add some more "pay life" synergy, like Chainer, Dementia Master , Bloodtracker , Doom Whisperer , etc.

What are your mana sinks?

I like Bloodtracker .

Noire_Samhain on Kambal Life Gain

Some cards I definitely recommend if you can get your hands on them:

Debt to the Deathless is an excellent win condition. Keep yourself alive to gather a good amount of mana, then blast everybody with it. And if everyone doesn't die? Combine it with your Aetherflux reservoir and blast those who are left. Also, Pontiff of Blight gives every creature Extort, so a simple cheap spell can be paid extra to make a major life loss and gain impact.

I'd definitely recommend cards that can also spend your life- you're going to have a ton of it, why not use it? Underworld Connections makes a land of yours a source of card draw. Vona, Butcher of Magan lets you kill creatures with it. Bloodtracker gets stronger with life payments, and draws you cards if/when he dies. Final Payment can go the aristocrat route by having you sacrifice a creature, but in this case, why not pay that measly 5 life? Aetherflux is a nice win condition, but want to make sure no one who survives it can take advantage of you paying 50 life with any flying creatures, skulkers, or otherwise evasive cards? Use Font of Agonies . You get fifty blood counters with one payment, and can kill off up to 12 creatures with its effects.

Also, its mana expensive but Treasury Thrull can get you creatures and enchantments back.

I'd recommend more of the dual lands to. Commander is often more casual, so any of the ones that come in tapped are just fine.

I hope you do well and have fun your first game! Black/White is my favorite color combination, though I prefer the aristocrats route, so it makes me excited to see new players choose it for their first deck.

Aaerys on It's Vampires I Swear...

Seems like a decent list, Rakdos unusally isnt my forte but here we go:

Bloodtracker - benefits your board and keeps up the sweet black card draw too!

Olivia's Bloodsworn - again benefits the board

Torment of Hailfire - good in 1v1 really shines in a full pod

Phyrexian Arena - Sweet black card draw

Exquisite Blood - goes infinite with Sanguine Bond

Good luck! :)
