Carrier Thrall

Creature — Vampire

When Carrier Thrall dies, create a 1/1 colorless Eldrazi Scion creature token. It has "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool."

Carrier Thrall gives overall 3 bodies for , if you really want all of these to be Vampires then there's Martyr of Dusk HOWEVER, we'd be better off with sticking to as much as possible, that's why I recommend the former creature more.

About changes you've made: basically speaking you've changed nothing FUNCTIONALLY while significantly lowering the CMC of cards you use, so the damage from Ad Nauseam / Bolas's Citadel is lowered in the long run, which means more card advantage from them or more life as a resource to spend. There's only one word that can describe this - "marvelous" :)

Another thought that hit me this morning - do you really need Land Tax here? With 7 basics it might very fast run out of cards search for and when cast later in a game doesn't provide enough immediate results (if any at all). There's Chrome Mox for about the same price and no matter when you use it it's great or if you want huge start of casting something big with Winter Orb on the field then there are the rituals I've already mentioned.

Morning Vlasiax,

Hey thats right Fire Covenant is better as Kindred Dominance i will change that. Thank you!

Well Carrier Thrall or Pawn of Ulamog is good for a Aristocrats theme, but i don't want to sacrifice my creatures, except if i really need card draw or to squeeze out some damage points with Goblin Bombardment when the creature dies anyway.

but i rather change Forerunner of the Legion for a Vampiric Tutor and Mirror Entity for Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle . What do you think?

I personally tried to focus on 1 CMC vampires and Aristocrats subtheme, since we generate so many bodies with Edgar Markov . That's why I also run Pawn of Ulamog and Carrier Thrall for more of them and because I want to focus as much on black as possible.

Also what are your thoughts about running Culling the Weak and Dark Ritual ?

Guys, I think he wants to sac those creatures to other effects, since he said no self-sacrificing creatures, so Thrulls are just spinning wheels. Unfortunately, the effect OP is looking for is pretty unusual, as evidenced by Su-Chi 's $50 price tag (screw the Reserved List). The best you're going to do outside the original examples is treasure and scion makers like Dire Fleet Hoarder , Gleaming Barrier , Pitiless Plunderer , and Carrier Thrall . That's why most people choose to make tokens and sac them for mana through an intermediary like Ashnod's Altar , Phyrexian Altar , etc. get the mana through death-matters triggers on cards like Black Market and Pitiless Plunderer .

My idea is to make all of the above as 30 card Modern legal decks, where you take any two pieces and combine them before the game starts to make a full 60 card deck. Each 30 card deck will also have a "champion" - a mythic or rare that is the lynchpin - while the rest of the cards are commons or uncommons. For example, BR aristocrats:

11 lands
2 Brawl-Bash Ogre
4 Corpse Connoisseur
4 Carrier Thrall
4 Myr Sire
2 Fleshbag Marauder
2 Crypt Champion
1 Underworld Cerberus - the champion

This can be combined with say, RW Vehicle aggro:

11 lands
1 Depala, Pilot Exemplar - the champion
4 Veteran Motorist
2 Renegade Freighter
2 Untethered Express
2 Consulate Dreadnought
1 Aeronaut Admiral
2 Speedway Fanatic
1 Caught in the Brights
2 Court Homunculus

You can easily combine the two to make a capable deck. Keep going for the other deck archetypes.

What this idea does is provide a mini-game for more experienced players and variety of gameplay, while less experienced ones get a view of deckbuilding and a form of "smash-up" that is more fun than simply picking up a ready deck. If you want to really spice it up, add some loose cards players can switch in between games - a sort of a sideboard.

For example, with 10 30-card decks, you have 90 combinations.

Maybe replace Doomed Dissenter with Carrier Thrall since you need some more mana ramp to make Empty the Pits useful.
