Dark Ritual Discussion

xyr0s Wow thank you for your reply! I do plan to take to out Dark Ritual as it is not legal.

You're absolutely right on the Liliana, Death Wielder. I have yet to play her in a game ever.

Thank you for your suggestions. Many of the cards, I did notice were very weak. I also noticed that the synergy was not necessarily there. I really like the suggestions, and I noticed that I also need to repeat my cards a bit more. Thank you for help!!!

Ehh.... stupid question, maybe, but exactly what is the combo?

Other than that Dark Ritual is not modern legal.

Some of the cards chosen are pretty weak. Liliana, Death Wielder is not something you can play until turn... hmmm... I don't know... 10? 12? Roughly speaking, you need to draw 20 cards, give or take, into your deck on average to find 7 lands. Wouldn't Ob Nixilis Reignited pretty much do the same, but better and cheaper? Or maybe, since you are playing BW vampires, either Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor would be even better yet? Their tokens would certainly go well with the vampire special abilities.

Speaking of vampires: Gatekeeper of Malakir is a nice, and budgetfriendly, addition. Removal with a body, and with a relevant creature type - what's not to like? Besides, you have some really underpowered creatures, like Sanguine Glorifier (4 mana for a 3/3 creature with a very low impact special), Dire Fleet Ravager (lifeloss is ok, but only if you are REALLY sure that you are going to be ahead) or Exultant Skymarcher.

Lands: there are SO many other lands, you could play, both for utility and mana fixing. Isolated Chapel, Vault of the Archangel, and Shambling Vent are pretty good ones.

Why play Luminous Bonds over more regular removal? Is there any situation, where you wouldn't rather have an extra copy of Path to Exile? On the same note: Vanquish the Weak is terribly overpriced - Fatal Push is a lot better, or Victim of Night if you want a cheaper card.

A bit of 1 cmc targetted discard could also be good - a bit like Dark Inquiry but from the first turn. You could try Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize, or Duress if budget. Play a full set, so they should replace Cleansing Ray and Dark Inquiry.

suggestion if you want to try: cancel red.

instead of 4x Lightning Bolt take in 4x Sadistic Sacrament

instead of 3x Pyroclasm take in 3x Zealous Persecution

instead of 2x Chandra, Torch of Defiance take in 2x Dark Ritual

Altar's Reap? You probably ran out of them! And no Dark Ritual? jk

Always loved Mirko Vosk as one of the 99 in my mill decks- very cool to see him here as a Commander!

Your list seems very solid as a budget list but here are my suggestions:

More ramp. Since your general costs 5 and your avg CMC sits at about 3.32 you could use at least 6-8 pieces of ramp. Sol Ring has gotta go in as fast as possible but I'd also suggest Dark Ritual, Mind Stone, and Thran Dynamo.

In terms of mill, it would be very cool to see Fraying Sanity in here.

Other than that, maybe some more card draw? Brainstorm?

Hope my suggestions are helpful- good luck to ya!

Craven183 on Heavy Grinder

With an average CMC of 4.02 it looks like you could use more mana ramp like Mind Stone, Thran Dynamo, Dark Ritual, etc.

Might I suggest Wall of Blood as a risky, but delicious creature you can abuse? Also Paradox Engine would work absolute wonders in here- especially with more mana rocks!

Love the list and am a big fan of your inclusion of Wrexial, the Risen Deep! Good luck and I hope my suggestions help!
