Contaminated Ground Discussion

Mardu_Charizard on Swampwalk with Me

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

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.

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.

If Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is out of budget then I would suggest things like Contaminated Ground, Evil Presence, Stormtide Leviathan, Tainted Well, Lingering Mirage, Sea's Claim, and Spreading Seas. All of these are cheap on both CMC and $$ and can help push your Commander through.

Hope this helps.

So, for starters, I'd definitely take out Akroma's Memorial and either sell that bad boy or put it in literally any creature-focued EDH deck that you have, because all the keywords in the world will still only make your Stuffy Doll a 1/1. I'd also take out Assault Formation, since it only affects 4 of your creatures (and even then, it's negligible gain). Also, I'd nix Crawlspace since it defeats the purpose of Nightly Hunting. Gravity Well is redundant if you draw more than 1, so I'd just keep 2 copies.

To put in: Lust for War, Contaminated Bond, Contaminated Ground, Nettling Curse, Sinister Possession, Visions of Brutality, Goblin Diplomats. I'd put in Jaddi Offshoot or any Black creature with lifelink (Gifted Aetherborn? Vampire Cutthroat?) if you're concerned about Burn. I know your deck doesn't include B, but having those Auras will help you accelerate victory (honestly, you almost could take out all of the G cards in this deck).

Hope this helps! Mention me if I can clarify or otherwise be helpful.
