Bump in the Night Discussion

tonfer20 on Pauper Burney Graveyard

If you wanted to go more down the burn route, you could also try Lava Spike or Chain Lightning, classic burn spells that deal damage straight to face. Keldon Marauders seems pretty good as well, as it can be a potential 5 damage for 2. If you wanted to be in 2 colours, you could try Alms of the Vein or Bump in the Night. One fun addition could be Myr Servitor, cuz you clould potentially attack for 2, and get them back later. It seems pretty neat

A few bits of advice.

Your curve isn't so hot. Lots of 3 and 5s, but no 4s.

Bump in the Night is not a card you want to play in a deck with 5 drops, and more importantly, you should be playing discard turn 1. Maybe finish out the playset of Inquisition of Kozilek instead.

Fatal Push is likely better than Bile Blight and/or Hero's Downfall. Cheap is better. Dismember or Go for the Throat are both also better options.

Remorseless Punishment is not a good magic card. You should be running something higher impact (and preferably cheaper) in that slot.

Demigod of Revenge is good if you can dump cards into your graveyard for value, but with only 2 card advantage spells, and no discard synergy, it's not powerful enough for the slot. Something like Bloodghast may fit better here.

In general, almost every 5 drop that isn't Gray Merchant of Asphodel or Phyrexian Obliterator is worse than those two, so i don't see why you're running more than those. That's already 8 5 drops, which is a ot for modern.

A sideboard is key for success in modern. Building one will be very beneficial. I would suggest graveyard hate, Rain of Tears or Fulminator Mage, and some more interactive spells, as well as some card advantage. To play a deck in modern that is not broken, you need answers to broken decks.

In your deck, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx isn't even that good. You don't have any creatures you can cast with it, so it doesn't start producing mana unless you have 3 other lands already, and even then it's not very good because it only makes a lot of mana when you don't have many cards in hand.

Otherwise, a solid looking deck.

Not sure if you are going for a more aggro or control style, but there are several cards I think would help.

Burn- Max out your Lightning Bolt. Weird you don't have it as a four of, but make it that way. Other good burn includes Lava Spike, Rift Bolt, Bump in the Night and Kolaghan's Command(which doubles as discard).

Discard- Inquisition of Kozilek, Thoughtseize, Duress and Wrench Mind are all pretty effective.

I'd also max out the amount of Liliana's Caress, as it seems like your best enchantment, besides Pain Magnification, which seems decent.

I'd have more, but it's too damn late for me. Hope that helps!

KossRS actually you could throw probably throw in Jungle Hollow and Foul Orchard without much issue.

I like having Healing Leaves and Bump in the Night for that bit of cheap lifegain, in case everything doesn't go according to plan, but you're welcome to make the deck yourself with those replacements.

If you do, let me know how it works out!

This deck looks really cool and I'm tempted to try it myself!

Assuming the mana base can't be messed with to much (because that'd probably ruin the budget aspect of the deck) I think the only changes I'd maybe make is switching out the Healing Leaves for Putrefy and Bump in the Night for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord

Hi, I've put together a bunch of vampire lists. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of modern mono-black cards. First up, Blade of the Bloodchief. It makes lifelink into a game-stalling certainty. With decent creatures that you don't want in the 'yard Indulgent Aristocrat beats Viscera Seer for providing more lifelink and some pump. Vampire Envoy isn't great as a card- 1 or 2 drop removal is more practical, and Pawn of Ulamog a more flavourful option. Similarly, with all those little creatures with keywords Lashwrithe can do good stuff. Ratchet Bomb is a slow answer to many modern threats black can't answer and ends tokens,and so practical sideboard. I'll reccomend Imp's Mischief as combo and boggle disruption. Disfigure is a lot more practical than gut shot for defence, and Bump in the Night when attacking. Temporal Extortion is my preferred endgame- it usually puts out more damage than dropping Vampire Nocturnus even if the choice is your opponents rather than your topdeck. Fetches change that, but whatever. I find Blood Artist usually outperforms Kalastria Highborn, due to not having to keep mana open in a low instant-speed deck.

Long story shory, more lifelink, some card draw, hand disruption, win fnms. Duress is cheap and oh so practical. If in doubt splash green for Asceticism and Collected Company, just to frustrate those that outrange you.

The shell seems cool, but how do you win? The mill plan seems really inefficient. Bump in the Night could do some work, and then you might want to add a couple creatures if you have room. Scavenging Ooze would be my top choice, but I'm not sure if it's in your price range if you play on MTGO. I can't think of any other finishers of the top of my head; Anyway, great deck!
