Gorbah on Bloodline of an Ancient Coven

Thanks for the positive feedback DRmagic2017 really appreciated ! Crackling Doom will be added since i have that card in my collection, and Tutors are indeed needed and will be added later ;) i have Diabolic Intent on my mind aswell ! What are your thoughts on that one ? Saccing a 1/1 token for a powerful draw is something i would consider ...

DRmagic2017 on Bloodline of an Ancient Coven

Hello and welcome to EDH! Edgar Markov is a great choice if your strategy is to play fast and aggressively. But you need to improve your deck a little bit. EDH is a multiplayer format so you need strong board wipes: Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation. You also need something to deal with indestructible creatures: Anguished Unmaking would be a nice addition to Utter End and Swords to Plowshares. And take a look at Crackling Doom - it's a fun card too. Your creatures also need protection: Boros Charm is the first card on my mind. And yes, as soon as you play tokens Eldrazi Monument isn't a bad idea. I usually add Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton to my tribal decks. They can really boost your Vampires. Underworld Connections should be replaced with Phyrexian Arena. And finally - tutors. You really need them in EDH. Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen - the choice is yours. Good luck!

Crackling Doom, Mortify, Vindicate, and Utter End are all really good removal, and I would suggest some of them instead of Fire Covenant, Nameless Inversion, or the counterspells, which kinda seem a little out of place in a vampire tribal deck?

Legion's Landing, Blade of the Bloodchief, and Radiant Destiny are fun for the tribal help.

Patron of the Vein is removal, and continues to buff all your vampires. bloodline necromancer and Bishop of Rebirth are useful recursion, and Bloodlord of Vaasgoth and Necropolis Regent are just real nice for makin big dudes.

Really cool deck! Check out my Russian Vampire Mafia, it's cool to see how decks with the same commander and idea can feel so different sometimes.

Since the majority of cards in your deck are black, I suggest Vampire Nocturnus, while the buff is conditional it's very strong and fairly consistent, especially with any draw/scry effects.

Tithe Drinker and Olivia's Bloodsworn can be surprisingly effective, especially if you get them out early.

Blasphemous Act and Vandalblast can be effectively combined into Merciless Eviction.

Crackling Doom is really strong. Also, Blood Tribute. Blast 'em.

Legion's Landing could be put in maybe in place of a plains or something, since it flips into a land so easily? Also Radiant Destiny is good, especially once you get the vigilance, which isn't hard to do with the tokens.

Sorin Markov, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are all strong additions, and cool flavor because your commander is already his granddad :P

Really cool deck, check out mine! ==> Russian Vampire Mafia

I have a fond place in my heart for Saskia though my deck is long retired. I have a few suggestions of cards that I used to run which can ramp up your deck's explosiveness:

Haste is a Saskia deck's best friend, so: Ogre Battledriver, In the Web of War, and Urabrask the Hidden might all be solid inclusions (and are better than Fervor)

Cathars' Crusade is just busted alongside Assemble the Legion

Selfless Spirit is a better option over Dauntless Escort, but either are great.

You might consider Dolmen Gate or Conqueror's Flail for more protection. Also, the obligatory Lightning Greaves comment.

I'd replace Putrefy with Anguished Unmaking and then run Sunforger as it likely would be the best card in your deck. You could also run Crackling Doom, Path to Exile, and Aura Mutation (all tutorable by Sunforger).

Martial Coup might be a solid board wipe to include here and there are a bunch of token doublers in green and white you could consider.

Lastly (I know this is a lot of suggestions, sorry) I think your deck could use more card draw. 6 total cards that provide card draw seems a little low to me (I usually never go below 10 in my decks). Mentor of the Meek, Shamanic Revelation, and Skullclamp are all really powerful in this type of build. There are also other card draw staples in these colors like Sylvan Library, Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, etc. which you could consider.

I hope some of these comments help and happy deck building!

Looks like a good start! I don't think your land count is high enough to benefit from Azusa, so you should swap it out for something like Skyshroud Claim. Burnished Hart is also weaker than green options like Explosive Vegetation or even Kodama's Reach. Since you are playing green you have access to very good ramp spells like these, so you don't need so many of the tapped lands that produce multiple colors.

Crypt of Agadeem won't do much for you because you don't have enough black creatures or enough ways to fill your graveyard. Temple of the False God will produce 0 mana for the first few turns so is probably not worth including. Since your deck doesn't have many dragons Sarkhan isn't that helpful.

I don't think Spiteful Motives is good in EDH at 4 CMC either.

If you're playing with Sunforger, Crackling Doom is another good instant.

I'll leave it at that for now. Play with the deck and see how it goes. Good luck!
