Champion of Dusk Discussion

Cut Oathsworn Vampire for Cruel Celebrant . Don’t see myself recasting oathsworn very often and something had to go.

Cleaned up the manabase. I ran too many colorless utility lands because the deck is primarily black. However this made it too hard to cast Necropotence or cast multiple cards.

Out: Vault of the Archangel , Cavern of Souls

In: 2 basic swamps

I never use vault and am never happy to draw it. Casting cards is always better. Vault has slight value as a threat but is usually no better than Wastes .

Cavern is Command Tower about 2/3 of the time, but it can really cause problems when it counts, which is why I never ran Unclaimed Territory . The uncounterable creatures ability is not very helpful as our vampires are mostly trash and we would still get a token anyway. Some vampires are worth countering but aside from Champion of Dusk I would actually prefer they counter a vampire since that increases the odds of resolving something important later on.

Thoughtseize would be a good addition to this deck. I feel like you need a good turn 1 card for it. Of course cheaper discard like Duress is acceptable too.

Also, I really enjoy a couple of the newer vampires like Twilight Prophet and Champion of Dusk . They will be your card draw engine and win you the game in card advantage alone.

Hi :), I first started with vampires and its a load of fun. not a bad vampire deck to start, although I have a couple suggestions that I hope may be able to help out.

The first suggestion I have is a card called Radiant Destiny which is very useful if your going the full on vampire creature route. 4x Radiants would be very well what you need to help those vampires to become stronger.

My biggest concern is your mana curve, capping at 5 being the most is similar to the opposite of what vampires are kinda meant to be. Quick and deadly.

Maybe try something more like this. Hope it helps out a bit more :)

Small drops

4x Vicious Conquistador 4x Legion Lieutenant 2x-4x Dusk Legion Zealot 2x-4x Martyr of Dusk 2x Ajani's Welcome

medium drops

1x-3x Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle 2x Inspiring Cleric 3x-4x Murder 2x Sanctum Seeker 1x Twilight Prophet 1x-2x Elenda, the Dusk Rose 4x Call to the Feast 4x Radiant Destiny

Large drops

1x Champion of Dusk 2x Epicure of Blood 1x The Eldest Reborn


4x Godless Shrine 4x Isolated Chapel 10x Swamp 6x Plains

(based on mana that is)


Midnight Reaper Radiant Destiny Elenda, the Dusk Rose Queen's Commission Vicious Conquistador Skymarcher Aspirant Unclaimed Territory

Thats about all i can think of. I don't think it completely adds up to 60 cards but slightly more but vampires do not need lots of lands because they-re generally fast but around 20-22 lands should work hopefully. 24 is best to if you can find stuff to take out extra.

I hope some of this helps out from an previous vampire player. I wish you the best of luck and hope the matches will play out well :)

Have you considered using Champion of Dusk over Promise of Power ? Same CMC but better synergy/potential.

First thing I noticed is that there is really no draw mechanic. Looks to me you are relying on one single card Champion of Dusk to give you that draw. Yes there is graveyard return and token creation that I'm sure helps but how many games where you are left empty handed and top decking for a majority of the game and probably lose because of it? Maybe try considering Dusk Legion Zealot or maybe Midnight Reaper considering you have a pretty good amount of life gain here. These two cards are very strong atm. Also Godless Shrine & Isolated Chapel or maybe an Unclaimed Territory would be great to boost your lands.

Hi! Some ideas. Lands: Temple of Malice , Path of Ancestry . Artifacts: Rings of Brighthearth or Illusionist's Bracers ( Olivia Voldaren likes it for sure). Card advantage: Champion of Dusk , Twilight Prophet + Doom Whisperer (to get City Blessing is not a big problem in EDH and these two cards are great together). Creatures: Markov Blademaster , Falkenrath Marauders . Removal: Bedevil . Board wipe: Damnation .

Yo LionessOfTruth!

It's a pretty good list! If you want to see a deck list me and a buddy of mines, (TheErebos) brewed up here is the link to his deck!~

It's a tight list and super explosive, I would also highly recommend running Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle as he is a beast. Twilight Prophet is also a pet favorite card and helps you really draw. Champion of Dusk is also a great burst draw to refill your hand.

Hope that helps!
