Definitely need to consider adding in Drana, Liberator of Malakir she is a super house card that makes all your Vampires stupid huge. Faith's Reward is also a great card for anti-board wipe tech. Same with Teferi's Protection . Crackling Doom is also a fun card to play with since you are in Mardu colors as well as Hide / Seek .

Hope that helps!

Darthenos on Licia's Bloody Bargain

Here are my recommendations: Cut: Defiant Bloodlord (7 mana for a lackluster body, decent effect, and no protection = meh), Manabarbs (Most people, if not all at the table will target you when you play this), Blood Baron of Vizkopa (Very specific second half of this ability makes it a 5 mana 4/4 lifelinker 99% of the time), Iroas, God of Victory (Your deck does not have enough creatures to make use out of the ability; the boros god shines really well in decks that go wide), and Odric, Lunarch Marshal (You mostly have lifelink and flying on your creatures. His ability won't get you too much value most of the time)

Add: Tymna the Weaver (Lifelink, early draw, and low mana cost), Crackling Doom (Insane removal that mardu has access to), Rakdos's Return (Phenomenal in 1v1; good in multiplayer and it helps finish players off after you whittled them down), Twilight Prophet (Life drain and card advantage-low cmc), and Test of Endurance (might as well, since you are running Aetherflux Reservoir and Felidar Sovereign )

nerva90 on The Price of Blood

hkhssweiss, she really is a ton of fun! The colors, the flavor and how much a table underestimates her are all things that I love about her.

Weathered Wayfarer is definitely better, that's true. I have my single copy tied up in my Iroas, Hate Bears list at the moment, which is one of my more competitive builds. Will definitely add him in in the coming months.

Regarding the other suggestions. I've had Dawn of Hope, Crackling Doom and Wear / Tear in the deck before. The latter two could make a comeback sometime, it's just a matter of preference for the removal package really.

I really wanted Dawn of Hope to be good in the deck I really did, but it always underperformed. We have such powerful draw engines in the deck that it paled in comparison and didn't work with the mass lifegain plan. Would work better with a deck that gains life frequently in smaller chunks.

The Partners are amazing and I've been thinking about Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder as an addition for a long time. They'd both do a lot of work in the deck but the creature count might be a little on the low side for Tymna the Weaver. Only one way to find out though.

Archangel of Thune is great but very expensive, honestly I'd probably play something like Baneslayer Angel instead but there's no denying the Archangel is strong. The ceiling is of course much higher on her.

Bloodchief Ascension could be a nice win condition / inevitability for the deck! I have a copy of it but it's in use at the moment. Definitely a good suggestion!

Toxic Deluge is great as well and fits the theme of the deck. I'm opting for Pestilence instead at the moment since it has nice versatility since it can win the game on its own.

Finally Chaplain's Blessing used to be in the deck and it's a nice ritual for our commander which can give us explosive starts, which is still by no means necessary and sometimes felt lackluster to be honest. I'm liking the lifegain cards that can gain us life repeatedly over many turns a bit more but it could find it's home into the deck again. I'm a little bit of a hypocrite though since I'm running Icatian Moneychanger that does similar things and can get Licia down on turn 3 for example. Just hard to find what to cut instead.

Thank you again for the comments!

No worries nerva90!

I always wanted to build a Licia deck, she seems so much fun. Instead of Oreskos Explorer, you can actually run Weathered Wayfarer if you want a body. In addition it lets you tutor for any land, only downside is that an opponent has to have more lands than you.

Here might be some additional cards that can be considered that will work well with Licia that I didn't see in your list.

Yeah Faith's Reward is one of my favorite cards in white. Have you also thought of using "ritual" like effect for Licia? Like a Chaplain's Blessing is like a better Dark Ritual for us.

Hey buddy!

No worries on the cards I listed, those are just ideas that I have seen and not tuned just yet! I agree why you wouldn't run most of the ones you listed. Crackling Doom is a meta call as I'm unsure what your exact meta is like, but I absolutely love that card because no one ever sees it coming! Bloodghast was more for the reanimation theme but that's not what we are going for in this deck build.

I'm actually a fan of Kheru Mind-Eater it's not to actually cast cards from your opponents but to deny them of CA. Plus you can also play their lands if they choose to exile lands from their hands!

A few cards I would consider out atm, probably Dictate of Erebos (I like it because it has your name on it but for efficiency sake it's that or Grave Pact), Vampire Nighthawk, Olivia, Mobilized for War, and Bloodghast.

I would actually consider cutting out all the non-efficient one drops as well like Vampire Cutthroat, Skymarcher Aspirant, Falkenrath Gorger. Further refinement also would need cuts for cards like Asylum Visitor as it will dilute your deck.

Your thoughts?

hkhssweiss There are some cards that I've added and later rejected for ex:

Legion's Landing  Flip - it may be good at Standard, but in EDH I don't feel like spending 3 mana for 1 token in aggro deck like this is worth it. Multiple draw engines will let me cast better stuff for that 3 mana most of the time.

Kheru Mind-Eater - since I will be playing on a curve, I don't think that I will have "time" to cast my opponents stuff.

Bloodghast - I love playing this guy in modern, but in edh it's not that "impactful" I think...

The Immortal Sun is great and I've felt like it's auto include at first, but later I've realised that 6 mana is a bit high tho.

Crackling Doom - I have mixed feelings about this one.

You've included some cards that I've been using in my Meren deck (Abomination, Vampiric Rites etc) and I wanted to put them here also.

It's not an easy task to choose what to include since there are so many good cards to choose from that are great in that kind of build. I will trim it several times, and let you know.

Hey TheErebos!

Alright so cards off the top of my head to definitely keep for the vampires.

Now moving on to the card types, for anthem/doubling/synergy token effects:

Now going for the interaction suite:

Now for card draw engines:

No good deck is left without tutors as well:

So far those cards are to be considered, sort through the cards and we can refine them to a playable deck list. Add in 36 lands to start, I feel that eventually we can cut it down to 34-35 since Markov will run a low curve. The basic lands should be good along with the basic multicolor mana base like Command Tower, Reflecting Pool, Mana Confluence, Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, the shock lands (Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt, Sacred Foundry), and also the painlands for now (Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Sulfurous Springs).

Let me know when you update it!
