Hey, saw that you're looking for help.

In my opinion the Vampiric Bloodlust precon doesn't showcase Edgar's best ability which is eminence from the Command Zone. You want to take advantage of this with low mana cost Vampires, mostly one/two/three drops. With eminence you want to swarm the board fast with Vampires because each low mana cost Vamp you cast gives you 1/1 Vamp token. Eminence lets you establish an army of Vamps much faster if you're casting one and two drop Vamps.

I'm suggesting for you to consider completely changing the strategy of your deck? Reduce the avg. CMC which is currently high at 3.7, make it so you can play a lot more Vamps faster. Use Sanctum Seeker , Malakir Bloodwitch and Edgar as the top end Vampires and cut most of the rest. These three benefit a lot, can do a ton of damage with big armies of Vamps. For upgrades to the precon consider starting by add all the good one drop and two drop budget Vamps?

Budget Vamps ($2 or less each) to consider adding:

Can add all these cards for about $11.


In all Commander deck builds lands that can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped should be priority. Don't be afraid of including more basic lands instead of lands that ETB tapped. Budget lands to consider:

Can add all these lands for about $17.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Can add the rest of these cards for about $12. Total price of suggested upgrades is about $40.


I'm suggesting to make a lot of changes by cutting a large number of high mana cost cards replacing them with low mana cost cards especially Vampires. Except the lands most of the cards I'm suggesting to cut are good cards, but most have high mana costs. Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Boros Guildgate
  • Akoum Refuge
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Stone Quarry
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Kabira Crossroads
  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Cinder Barrens
  • Anowon, the Ruin Sage
  • Blood Baron of Vizkopa
  • Bloodline Necromancer
  • Bloodsworn Steward
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Crimson Honor Guard
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Heir of Falkenrath
  • Licia, Sanguine Tribune
  • Mathas, Fiend Seeker
  • Olivia Voldaren
  • Patron of the Vein
  • Sangromancer
  • Skeletal Vampire
  • Skymarch Bloodletter
  • Vein Drinker
  • Black Market
  • Kindred Boon
  • Alms of the Vein
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Blood Divination
  • Consuming Vapors
  • Kindred Charge
  • Syphon Mind
  • Fell the Mighty
  • Well of Lost Dreams
  • Worn Powerstone

If you like these suggestions, or have any questions I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.


wowsuchdoge on Mardu Modern warrior deck

Catpocolypse I do like those creatures however they are not warriors and the effects from some cards like Blood-Chin Rager and Chief of the Edge would be wasted. Im thinking about making a mardu humans deck though.

Ambition's Cost looks interesting, might have to playtest it.

Mardu Charm However i've played alot before and i feel its kind of inferior when you have Boros Charm

@sanddeviljack - Thanks, and thanks for the suggestions! I think an important limitation on adding any cards to this deck is the extent they reduce the enchantment count. Boros Charm and Second Harvest both have powerful utility, but will likely come at the expense of a couple of enchantments, which starts to impact on the reliability of your enchantresses. You've got to consider carefully which effects are important enough to sacrifice enchantment slots, find enchantment alternatives, or otherwise build the deck to work without them. In this case, I try to minimise the need for the protection Boros Charm provides by ensuring I can win the game in the turn I make the tokens (e.g. through Purphoros, God of the Forge or Samut's haste enabling). Similarly, I think Parallel Lives , Anointed Procession and just generating lots of mana are sufficient enchantment-based alternatives for the Second Harvest effect. Boros Charm and Second Harvest have additional upsides (modal, instant speed, etc.) and would be good to have, but are perhaps not essential enough to trade off other cards. That said, I'm always swapping in and out a few cards around the edges to test new things, so they might be worth a try!

I think Odric, Lunarch Marshal and Concerted Effort could also be good, but would require a minor redesign and focus shift - there just aren't enough good key words to spread around at the moment. My present strategy relies on weight of numbers, but these could definitely be the core of a more elegant token strategy.

Cutting Warping Wail . This card was just me trying to be cute but it isn’t good. You have to hold up two mana per turn and it costs a card, which slows you down by a decent amount. If you fall behind your opponents, warping wail won’t help you catch up like Boros Charm or Scapegoat which both use the opponents’ wraths against them. This is why you always see Teferi's Protection in EDH but never Envelop .

Bringing in Oathsworn Vampire . He is a lot like Bloodghast . Even when I can’t recast him he isn’t that much worse than some other 2 drops I run. I don’t run many lifegain enablers for him but I do run a lot of draw so I assume that every other game I will find an enabler and recast him. This means he will be pretty good on average.

Nice. A much bigger budget than my Marath Enchantress deck, but similar philosophy. I've been thinking about switching to Samut. I can definitely see the utility. And I see a few lower priced things here that I could add in to good effect. Vexing Shusher in particular would fix a big problem for me.

This looks pretty tuned, so I don't know how much my suggestions might help, but wondering if you have considered Concerted Effort and/or Odric, Lunarch Marshal as ways to spread keywords around. Maybe Second Harvest ? Boros Charm ? All in all, a sweet looking deck!

Selesnya Sanctuary -> Bountiful Promenade - a better dual

Sylvan Reclamation -> Wear / Tear - Cheaper and almost as flexible

Warstorm Surge -> Boros Charm - Warstorm was more for the enrage angle, which I'm moving away from, and how did I forget about Boros Charm

Cacophodon -> Phyrexian Altar - Cacophodon was another dino I was trying out, to untap double lands, but it just didn't work. And everyone knows the Altar is awesome, plus I pulled a foil :)

The rest is an attempt to lean into a superfriends subtheme
