Dark Prophecy Discussion
1 week ago
I dont think Strionic and Voltaic are a great combo in an Aggro deck at all. Thats up to six mana to create the desired combo effect, and in Aggro that should be spent putting creatures on the board.
Maybe adding Dark Prophecy as a one or two of could be good, it adds card draw and you have a good amount of token generation.

Thank you guys again for the feedback Josh_Estrella,Last_Laugh,Lil_Kalki and Frank_Glascock! I didn't know Panharmonicon worked like that, I was told otherwise by some people at my card shop so I guess that'll be an easy cut. Going with what you said guys have said so far and to respond to Frank_Glascock-
Cools, I'll get a Necropotence. I had Herald’s Horn as a maybe because I didn't know if it'd be better than Urza's Incubator but I see what you mean with the card draw, so I'll get one of those and make that swap. I have a Dark Prophecy at home, so I can get that sent to me with my other cards. Athreos, God of Passage is a cool card, I didn't know about that. I want to try him out sometime. What should I cut to put my Skullclamp back in? I did want to keep it, but I wasn't too sure on what to take out.
I need a Shared Animosity. Purphoros, God of the Forge is like a really cool upgraded version of Impact Tremors that I didn't know about, I'll have to get him too. I wanted to try to use Impact Tremors somehow, but Purphoros, God of the Forge is way better. Also, I wasn't too much of a fan of Bloodlord of Vaasgoth either, so I could cut him for something. I wasn't sure about Anowon, the Ruin Sage. Should I have a Sorin, Solemn Visitor in place of one of the other two I am currently using? Also, I thought that Stensia Masquerade would be a better alternative to Rakish Heir. Same mana cost but it's an enchantment instead of a creature, and it can give first strike. I could be wrong though, I know we need to be having a lot of vampires. What do you think about the low cost vampires I have so far? Lil_Kalki mentioned cutting Stromkirk Noble, and you said something about Vicious Conquistador. I was going to put Pulse Tracker in but I saw Vicious Conquistador was essentially the same but it's a 1/2 instead. Maybe my Sanctum Seeker is already doing the same job but a bit better...
Should I exchange the two tutors I have for the ones you mentioned, or find a way to squeeze in two more?
Ok so far this is what I'm at so far...

TheFateless, thanks for the opportunity to further discuss Markov. I learned most of what I shared on the other Markov threads from much smarter Magic players. Last_Laugh and Josh_Estrella are the first two that come to mind.
I believe this rules interpretation for Panharmonicon is correct:
"The text of Panharmonicon is the following:
If an artifact or creature entering the battlefield causes a triggered ability of a permanent you control to trigger, that ability triggers an additional time.
Panharmonicon will not trigger for eminence from the command zone, as it isn't the triggered ability of a permanent you control."
If this is correct, Edgar Markov would need to be in the field for Panharmonicon to net the additional vampire token.
This deck is going to get board wiped. You need draw. Necropotence is an autoinclude. I would switch Urza's Incubator for Herald’s Horn. I am playing Greed, Dark Prophecy, Athreos, God of Passage, and Skullclamp.
I flood the board with a lot of low cost vampires and attempt to win with Mirror Entity, Edgar Markov, Shared Animosity, Coat of Arms, Purphoros, God of the Forge and to some extent Eldrazi Monument. Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Rakish Heir and Vampire Nocturnus (testing) are a few other cards that buff the 15 one and two drop vampires I am playing. It seems you are right on the edge with ten creatures that cost one or two mana. Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Butcher of Malakir, and Bloodlord of Vaasgoth are some potential cuts if you go further with the low mana cost vampires. You are playing Vicious Conquistador which is a functional reprint of Pulse Tracker.

Another local player has extolled the virtues of Dark Impostor. I could cut one of two higher cost vampires. My average mana cost per card is at 2.5 and there are 37 black cards in the deck other than Vampire Nocturnus along with nine fetchlands. Is he worth running?
Or would you cut Voldaren Pariah Flip? She in theory is one sided removal. Losing three vampire tokens undercuts the going wide strategy of the deck. I cut all the aristocrat cards in the deck. Like your deck there are cards that depend more on the quantity of creatures and not the quality. Shared Animosity, Dark Prophecy, Sanctum Seeker, Coat of Arms and Mirror Entity are some examples. Is she the better cut?

In terms of board wipe protections - Eldrazi Monument is very close to being included in my deck. I've been looking into it for awhile and I may just pick up a copy and see how it does. The evasion it gives and protection is perfect.
Phyrexian Reclamation is going in. Not sure what it is replacing yet, but I do need it. I was neutral on the card at first but after the last two weeks of more play-testing I realized it should be an auto-include. Luckily, my deck has been going off in every game I've played and my board state quickly gets out of control. Phyrexian Reclamation makes sure I can come back to that state if I lose it - and with low CMC vamps it is worth it.
For this version of the deck in particular I don't find that Sangromancer or Pawn of Ulamog are worth it. I would consider dropping a two CMC vamp for Bloodcrazed Paladin and Dark Prophecy & Scapegoat are both solid cards that could be considered in the future.
I would definitely cut Bloodline Necromancer. Sweet that it enters the battlefield but 5 CMC is way to high for a creature in this deck that doesn't anthem your whole board. Plus, with mostly low CMC vamps that is not worth it.
Love Vampire Nocturnus, but I think he is too risky in mardu. That is your call though, depending on your deck. He could be worth it.
So far, I havent used Reconnaissance to its full potential, but I'm confident it will be strong. Lately I've been winning my pods with Cover of Darkness combined with Shared Animosity. Together, I take out one or even two opponents in one turn.
