Have you thought about Serra Avatar, or Felidar Sovereign? Those are always fun in life-gain decks, especially with cards like Rhox Faithmender or Boon Reflection- not to mention crazy shenanigans with Aetherflux Resivour.

Dictate of the Twin Gods and Furnace of Rath double damamge too

Felidar Sovereign and Test of Endurance are easy wincons especially if you flash them in with Vedalken Orrery

Angelic Accord Can make you an army of flyers that avoid most of red x wipes.

Flame Rift Sizzle Cheap burn

Browbeat Molten Psyche Burn or card draw

Boon Reflection Alhammarret's Archive Doubles lifegain and archive doubles draw

Chandra, Torch of Defiance Jaya Ballard Ramp and draw. if you ever ult, Chandra gives extra burn and Jaya gives recursion

Balefire Liege Mini Firesong & Sunspeaker

Take what you want. I am making a Firesong Sunspeaker deck too Burn Alive if you want more ideas.

Good to see more cleric tribal! I definitely understand the appeal of drain effects as I have toyed with the idea a few times, lots of mana and Debt to the Deathless is a great way to bring an end to a game. One thing I would recommend from my personal experience is to try and not drop below 36 lands, especially as two of them wont produce mana without Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth leaving you with only 32 lands that are helpful in an opening hand without the benefit of mana dorks like elf tribal has, leaving you wanting badly for mana. Some life drain synergies you might consider are Test of Endurance and Aetherflux Reservoir, bonus if you use Children of Korlis with it. I would also use Caged Sun over Magus of the Coffers since it does not require the lands to be swamps to net you more mana, also you might try Alhammarret's Archive instead of Boon Reflection since it will also net you more off card draw. I look forward to seeing how you evolve the deck. +1

As a side note it occurs to me that if you reanimate Angel of Glory's Rise with Whip of Erebos and then exile it with Fiend Hunter you get around that annoying permanent exile clause... Might have to see if I can exploit that in my own deck.

Plague of Vermin and Phyrexian Processor are great ways to use the life you gain for additional board-presence. Using Children of Korlis with it allows you to have no downside to the heavy life cost.
Toxic Deluge is a useful board-wipe
Boon Reflection, Rhox Faithmender and Alhammarret's Archive allow for double life-gain.
Awe Strike is a great way to gain life when you have a large attack on you.
Blood Celebrant allows for mana diversity when you are missing a color.

Snap157 on Any ideas for this Black/White Vamp deck?

3 months ago

Okay- lets get you set up.

Your commander is cool, and his main thing going for him is providing constant removal. His main downside is his mana cost and the fact that he costs 9 mana the second time you cast him. Personally I would use Vona, Butcher of Magan to have better removal and a lower cost. Don't worry about her life loss- you start at 40 and have the two best colors for lifegain.

You're creatures look really good, but I would use only vampires, (although leave Crypt Ghast in because he's awesome, and only keep Ulamog in there if you have mill in your playgroup). Other than that, throw out the non vamp creatures (should be 2 of them) and add in Sanctum Seeker and Necropolis Regent.

You do have some weaker vampires that could use some tweaking. Dark Impostor and Falkenrath Noble are fun, but require too much effort to really impact the board. Thief of Blood can also mess up your board. I would replace these with Liliana of the Dark Realms, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis.

One of the advantages of playing Black White is your access to enchantments. You're missing a few staples, including Exquisite Blood (To go infinite with Sanguine Bond), Phyrexian Arena, and Axis of Mortality goes very very well with Vona. I would get rid of some boardwipes to make room. Can't forget the classic Ghostly Prison as well.

Your removal is powerful, but much too expensive. I would take out Iona's Judgment, Grisly Spectacle, Pillory of the Sleepless and Mindcrank to make room for Path to Exile, Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate and Unmake.

If you find that the loss of life is too much, I would take out Trepanation Blade and Oversold Cemetery and Anowon, the Ruin Sage to fit in Sanguine Sacrament, Debt to the Deathless, and Boon Reflection

For your mana base, watch the video linked and follow his instruction. Tolarian is one of the best mtg sources available. Click here

Hope this helps, good luck!

And here are nonland suggestions, as well as thought process. Pick and choose which ones you like.

1x Alhammarret's Archive - makes Oloro even better at what he does: drawing cards and gaining life

1x Austere Command - a staple board wipe that's very cheap right now and very good against every deck in our meta

1x Azorius Signet - ramp

1x Blind Obedience - lifegain and it's very good against gishath and inalla

1x Boon Reflection - doubles lifegain

1x Chasm Skulker - tokens and combos with all the card draw you have

1x Chromatic Lantern - ramp and fixing, basically a must-have in every 3+ color deck. It is expensive though, so if you skip out on it I can't blame you

1x Crested Sunmare - triggers at the end of every turn, so it won't be long before you have an army of 5/5 indestructible horses

1x Cyclonic Rift - the best blue card in the format

1x Dimir Signet - ramp

1x Drogskol Reaver - it's like an Oloro that doesn't make you pay mana!

1x Enlightened Tutor - tutors up either half of Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood, or you can use it to grab Sol Ring or Chromatic Lantern or even Aetherflux Reservoir to get your kills quick

1x Exsanguinate - this can easily gain you 20-25 life, and in that case it's only for 7 mana. Flexible enough to be a small spell to get you a bit of life or a kill spell

1x Fabricate - tutors up ramp or Aetherflux Reservoir

1x Fact or Fiction - More card draw!

1x Fellwar Stone - ramp, can be switched out for Thought Vessel if you find yourself needing that effect

1x Luminarch Ascension - I know how much you love angels, and this is also a very viable win condition. Also good for Zur

1x Merciless Eviction - probably the best board wipe. It's good against K+T, it's good against Inalla, it's good against Meren.

1x Necropotence - this card is gross and at its cheapest ever right now. The "downside" of paying life doesn't even matter in your deck. Just make sure you don't overdraw! Which is why I suggested Thought Vessel as a replacement for some other ramp pieces just in case

1x Orzhov Signet - ramp

1x Rhox Faithmender - doubling effect. Imagine you have this out and 50 life and you cast Beacon of Immortality, you'd go straight to 150. And that's conservative for the amount of life you'll have by the time you can cast Beacon.

1x Solemn Simulacrum - all-around good card, but it can be switched out for Thought Vessel if you find you need the effect and don't want to switch out Fellwar Stone.

1x Sphinx's Revelation - draws cards and gains life

1x Swords to Plowshares - you have a lot of removal, but sometimes you need something for one mana

1x Test of Endurance - another Felidar Sovereign-esque effect

VelvetVendetta on {Competitive} Licia Lifegain Beatface

Add Mana Crypt, Imperial Seal, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Enlightened Tutor, Chrome Mox, Gemstone Caverns, Ancient Tomb, Swords to Plowshares, more signets and Fellwar Stone, remove all "enter the battlefield tapped" lands, aside from probably Hall of the Bandit Lord (which you are missing too). Academy Rector can be useful to assemble your combo faster.

To maybe then start calling the deck "semi-competitive".

Cards to cut because they are too slow or work against your own deck somehow:

There are many more that could be cut but those stand out as very bad choices, if you like such heavy creatures perhaps you should include a reanimator sub-theme to the deck.

Your deck shares some superficial similarities to my Get a Life, Licia

Since the Act of gaining Life is more important than how much life you gain and since most of your creatures are very small with almost no recursion, and your commander is targeted removal on a stick, I would take out some of the field wipes, removal, and mana rocks.

If you want specifics:

  1. Vizkopa Confessor
  2. Beacon of Immortality
  3. Skeletal Scrying
  4. Swords to Plowshares
  5. Shrine of the Forsaken Gods
  6. Boon Reflection
  7. Trespasser's Curse
  8. Bontu's Last Reckoning
  9. Day of Judgment
  10. Deadly Tempest
  11. Debt to the Deathless
  12. Charcoal Diamond
  13. Marble Diamond
  14. Thran Dynamo
  15. Worn Powerstone
  16. Gideon Jura
