Contaminated Ground Discussion

Icbrgr on How to Completely Demoralize Someone

Yeah even with me using 8 Board wipe effects I don't fair that much better... I have also found that Contaminated Ground and Pooling Venom are surprisingly good in this kind of build.... Not exactly sure what you would cut/replace but if you are open to it give it a try in the playtester... The added life loss really helps and turning the opponents lands into swamps/destroy can really mess up their momentum.

Thoughts on Contaminated Ground or Evil Presence for blue decks like Merfolk?

I think Stalker Hag is a better 3 drop than grub because it gets +2/+2 from Creakwood Liege. I think some number of Contaminated Ground in the 75 would definitely be good though

I would add 4x Contaminated Ground. With modern having such a complex manabase (most sporting 3 colors), transforming their lands is as effective as destroying them. Plus, it costs half of your destruction spells, aids your swampwalk and pings the enemy for 2.

You are also playing black, so you should add some creature removal Doom Blade or Victim of Night.

Finally, Blistergrub is a decent swampwalk creature.

You should try Early Frost in the list, it's almost a Time Warp in modern and it will get the triggers from Contaminated Ground

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.

Sea's Claim and Spreading Seas could make good sideboard cards against black, which doesn't really care about having its lands turned to swamps. Corrupted Roots could be sideboarded as additional land enchants, or cheaper land enchants against certain decks.

You could also just consider a handful of swampwalkers, they would also counter black, and could even be used alongside Evil Presence or Contaminated Ground. Quag Vampires are nice.

Maybe instead of Sign in Blood (I'm assuming your occasionally using it on opponents): Contaminated Ground. It has a Blood Moon-like effect and causes a slow but constant burn to their life total.
