AkaAkuma on YOU get a car! And YOU get a car!

@wonderboyrox holdon! Tokens are very much able to change zones before they cease to exist, thus triggering abilities like Deathgreeter's.

Rule 110.5f: A token that’s in a zone other than the battlefield ceases to exist. This is a state-based action; see rule 704. (Note that if a token changes zones, applicable triggered abilities will trigger before the token ceases to exist.)

mikeb388 Thanks for the suggestion. But Deathgreeter would but far less effective in a deck like this than you may think since tokens do not enter the graveyard from play when they are killed.

Thank you KINGofORESKOS for the suggestions, Deathgreeter and Auriok Champion are ones I missed and I think will defiantly find a way into the deck. Treasury Thrull I have a copy but was worried it was a bit high of a CMC but I think I may throw it in for the recursion which I admit i over looked a tad. Athreos, God of Passage I will defiantly add just waiting on my LGS to get a copy.

PS. I accidentally hit the X for Auriok when i didnt mean to, my bad haha

Nice job with this deck! You seem to have all the key cards, I just have a few suggestions. Deathgreeter is the opposite of the soul sisters (Soul's Attendant & Soul Warden), but he makes your opponents think twice before hurting your creatures. Auriok Champion is basically another soul sister, so you want want to consider him. Athreos, God of Passage is just another fun way to make your opponents lose life. If you like cards with extort, Treasury Thrull might work its way into your deck. Keep up the good work!

-Cut Deathgreeter-Add Indulgent Aristocrat

Deathgreeter being a non vampire is a liability. I know he has killer abs and looks like Voldemort but I think we can do better.

-Cut Kheru Mind-Eater-Add Bloodline Keeper  Flip

You still have to pay the correct mana cost for cards exiled with KME, so any blue or green cards are dead draws. Seems underwhelming comparatively.

Plus the WB vampire from Ixalan block that gives all vampires +1/+1

Lurac on can i meren a man-land?

Please use double brackets to link cards.

Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Hissing Quagmire, Animate Land, Reanimate

A manland that is put into a graveyard counts as a creture as it moves to the graveyard, and triggers effects like the morbid mechanic or Deathgreeter, but as soon as it changes zones - i.e. goes to the graveyard, it ceases being a creature, and has no memory of its activation.

In the graveyard it is just a land.

I have a follow-up question, though, if that is okay: I played an Athreos, God of Passage deck in tiny leader, where I sometimes manifested cards with Qarsi High Priest. In the case that a noncreature card is manifested (say a basic land), and then dies, it was indeed a creature on the battlefield, and Athreos will trigger as it dies. Is it returned to my hand like any other creature if my opponent doesn't pay the 3 life?

Nice looking deck! I love "death-tricks."

I got a few cheap suggestions also:

Zulaport Cutthroat, Falkenrath Noble, Deathgreeter
