Ah, so theyre meta picks. My meta is devoid of any version of land hate so Ill probably stick to Arbor Elf just because he can get value without killing him self. (Makes Diabolic Intent and Culling the Weak a lot better) PS: Baral, Chief of Compliance also reduces sorceries

Since you are already running Culling the Weak, Myr Moonvessel is great. Makes Ad Nauseam very easy to cast early.

Culling the Weak is an instant, and can only sacrifice one creature.

This deck I feel can be made into a powerful combo deck, by abusing Grave Titan effects with Thornbite Staff, and a few other comboes as well.

The main cards to add for this effect would be:

Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed for the most straightforward combo, and the Buried Alive you have to put them in, preferably with Rune-Scarred Demon. You recur the Demon fetching Vindicate, then bring the Mikaeus/Triskelion Combo out by sacing the Demon. This means Buried Alive can win the game with the commander as a one card combo. Phantasmagorian can be used if you end up with any number of the combo pieces in hand.

Other cards to add include Imperial Seal, Grim Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Culling the Weak, Dimir Machinations, Corpse Connoisseur, Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, Grim Monolith, Phyrexian Walker, Chrome Mox, Lotus Petal, Defense Grid, Dark Confidant, etc.

Some cards I'd just say to look at, but not definitely include are as goes: Toxic Deluge (The best board wipe in the game), Read the Bones, Night's Whisper, Withering Boon, Sign in Blood, etc.

Cards you can drop:

Skirsdag High Priest

Gray Merchant of Asphodel

Kokusho, the Evening Star

Noosegraf Mob

Overseer of the Damned

Skirk Ridge Exhumer

Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger

Vindictive Lich

Malicious Affliction

Revel in Riches

Phyrexian Arena

Black Market

Call the Bloodline

Dictate of Erebos

Grave Pact

Ancient Craving

Hello wraya2 and Podkomorka,

thank you so much for actively helping me improve the deck. I have been closely looking at the large pile of commons which I own more closely. As well as paying good attention to all the suggestions you both made. I came up with the following list of changes to improve the overall strategy and consistancy of the deck.



Thank you both for all the great recommendations. I have put a few still on the maybeboard, as I do not own them yet. But these changes feel like a mayor improvement to the deck already and I can't wait to see this build into action. If anyone still spots possible upgrades or weak links, then I love to hear you about it!

If anyone wishes to chat with me or other fellow magic players about EDH, Pauper EDH or any other format, I can also be found in here most of the time. Feel welcome to join this discord channel at any time.

Best regards,

Culling the Weak? Its a stronger dark ritual that also lets you sac a creature for your Kalastria Highborn.

This is a pretty good deck! I have a vampire deck that I am working on Rn and I am trying to use my regular vampire deck and use it as inspiration for my new commander deck. Also IMO I think some mana ramp wouldn't hurt. Maybe a card like Culling the Weak and Liliana of the Dark Realms. Is there anything specific you want to improve in this deck???
