Dark Prophecy Discussion

I haven't played too much since the swap, but I think Liliana, Dreadhorde General is one of the best cards in the deck. She's a combination of Grave Pact and Dark Prophecy , and with a Phyrexian Altar out you can draw a ton of cards and trigger a ton of "dies" effects from Blood Artist to actual Grave Pact and the bonus card draw can even lead to extra Purphoros, God of the Forge triggers. While she's good on her own, she really shines when you have at least one or two of the above cards (esp. Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar) to keep the engine going.

I'm sure Bolas's Citadel would be nuts, too, but I've already got it in two other decks and didn't want to go too overboard on it. Definitely slot it in if you've got one. If you're going to swap one of the cards out for Citadel, though, I would definitely remove God-Eternal Bontu before Liliana.

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with everyone safely (yes, even that 0/1, why not), untap each creature at the most opportune time for pseudo vigilance, and still deal combat damage in most situations.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (obvious face value of the card), it untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt (great for getting +1+1 counters from Drana, Liberator of Malakir to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain ), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step). Shared Animosity also 100% deserves a spot here.

This combination of full tilt aggro with everyone available to block makes Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 really good here (Note, 'until your next turn') and it more than offsets a few of my next suggestions.

As far as the decks inherent card draw weakness goes, consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , Necropotence , Herald's Horn , and Twilight Prophet . Drop your 1 time draw like Read the Bones. Protecting your board also prevents topdeck mode... run Boros Charm (and Teferi's Protection assuming you got the precon).

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration, it's one of the top rated Edgar lists on the entire site. There's also over 130 comments worth of feedback and suggestions to sift through for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

They do nothing when they come down, cost a ton of mana in aggro, and they require gas to get them to do anything. Coat of Arms is also pretty ballsy.

Cathar's Crusade and Door of Destinies should be replaced with Reconnaissance and Shared Animosity . Crusade and Door do nothing when they come down, cost a ton of mana in aggro, and need gas to get them to do anything.

I'd also replace your one-time draw like read the bones and damnable pact with Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Twilight Prophet .

You're a bit high on your avg. cmc for aggro (closer to 3 to 3.3 will work much faster), you might want a few more pieces of removal and ramp, a lot more draw, and different finishers. What kinda budget are you working with?

Shared Animosity , Reconnaissance (look up the rulings, this is one of the best finishers in this deck), Swords to Plowshares , Austere Command , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Rakdos Signet , Orzhov Signet , Fellwar Stone , Diabolic Intent , Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Herald's Horn , Greed , and Enlightened Tutor to search up your draw engines.

In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires.

I saw your deck earlier and I saw you'd obviously either already seen my deck or my posts for other peoples decks so I didn't post here. You asked for help though, so here I be. Only a few changes that I'd immediately make.

Talisman of Indulgence and Fellwar Stone are both good rocks here.

Austere Command is a flexible modular boardwipe.

Necropotence and/or Dark Prophecy for more card draw. You have lifegain to offset the life loss, but Sorin, Solemn Visitor if you feel you need more.

Ok, first I'm still advocating Reconnaissance . I'd replace Cathar's Crusade, it does nothing for your current boardstate, costs a ton of mana for an aggro deck, and essentially requires gas after to get it to do anything. Thank me later, Reconnaissance will seriously be the best card in the entire list by far.

Fellwar Stone and Talisman of Indulgence are 2 excellent pieces of ramp here.

Your card draw also needs a bump. Dark Prophecy , Necropotence , and Greed are really good here. They do need big lifegain to offset the lost life though (especially the first 2)... Exquisite Blood and Sorin, Solemn Visitor are your best options here.

Austere Command and Diabolic Intent are worth considering also.

Now cuts... Sorin Lord of Innistrad, Night's Whisper, Throne of the God- Pharaoh, Coalition Relic, Theater of Horrors, Street Riot, Chromatic Lantern (unless you feel the color fixing is really needed), and Cathar's Crusade.
