Child of Night Discussion

Hexcimal on Mono Black Vampire Deck

It's always nice to see a mono black Vampire list. I used to run one myself before I repurposed the deck into others, and seeing them brings nostalgia. Out of curiosity, have you considered running B/R for the deck to be better competitively, or are you certain that you want this to be a strictly mono black build? Regardless, just a couple thoughts.

Consider running more 1 CMC cards to give yourself turn 1 plays. Whether it be more removal, more buffing/utility spells, or more creatures, Vampires as a tribe prefer aggressive builds that start quickly.

Some stragglers to consider replacing include Child of Night and Vampire's Bite.

Also, wanted to point out that I love the synergy with Quag Vampires and Contaminated Ground.

I would change the Child of Night for Gifted Aetherborn

I would replace Unholy Strength with Edge of the Divinity and then replace some of your mono-black creatures with optional white black mana creatures such as Mourning Thrull for Child of Night. then you dont have to change your mana base but you get better value.

Cards that immediately jump out for having too low of an impact for most tables:

-Child of Night

-Pulse Tracker

-Vampire Outcasts

-Vampire Cutthroat

-Vengeful Vampire

-Archetype of Finality

-Bad Moon

-Cabal Ritual

-Dark Ritual

-Sorin's Thirst

-Tyrant's Choice

Some of these may just be in there because they were available, which is fine, but if you're looking to trim the fat, these are the ones that struck me as the worst inclusions.

The deck isn't overly efficient, by that I mean you aren't running 4 of anything meaning it will be inconsistent... For instance why run 2 Child of Night over 4 Gifted Aetherborn when the latter is a better card? Or why run Alabaster Mage or Lifelink when most of your creatures already have lifelink?

I also think the deck is light on removal/disruption for a black/white deck you can run a gamut of discard and removal spells as well as taxing spells.

Now what you do have is a reasonable start for an EDH/Commander deck, being that most of your card choices are singleton anyway. If you are looking to go to a store and play casually EDH is the way to go.

If you don't fancy going the EDH route try to improve the focus of the deck, work out the 5 cards you ideally want in your opening hand and run 4 of them, you won't always see them but this is a good place to start from.

Atony1400: Hey! Thanks for the suggestions. I was thinking about Dark Ritual or Altar's Reap to replace Wring Flesh actually. However, since I am suddenly in a "budget" phase, I'm leaning away from the Ritual. =(

Grasp of Darkness is cool, but is in use in another deck. Plus over budget. =(

Shrivel on the other hand, I could see in the sideboard.

Thanks, though, what about a better 2-drop creature? Any ideas?

eyes2sky: good idea, but I still need a 2-drop to replace Stumbling Goof. Or should I just replace him with a playset of Shadow Alley Denizen? I'm gonna go with Child of Night for now.
