GearNoir on Do i have to reveal ...

As examples of reveal vs. not needing to reveal:

  • Enlightened Tutor text specifically states to reveal the card you've searched for and are going to put into your hand.

  • Demonic Tutor text simply says to search for the desired card and put it into your hand.

Looks good! However, a few quick suggestions:

1) I generally prefer Anguished Unmaking over Vindicate. Of course, you could always play both...

2) Could use a Corpse Dance, Shallow Grave, and Grim Return

3) No Living Death?

4) Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor are always nice, if you can fit them into your budget.

Happy deckbuilding! :)

Oh and thank you for not suggesting Demonic Tutor.

Demonic Tutor and Volrath's Stronghold do not show up as banned because they were never legal for modern. Modern is 8th edition is sets that were in standard from 8th edition on. They were not printed in a standard legal set in that time, so they have never been legal. And since they were never legal, they would not show up on the ban list.

As far as what to suggest, what is your budget like? I am assuming fairly high given the Dark Confidants. Also, how sold are you on sticking to the vampires theme?

Yeah I know about those combos, the thing about putting in some of the better tutors is I still want this deck to be somewhat casual friendly, my playgroup doesn't really run any decks with heavy amounts of tutors to reach their combos quicker, I'm ok with a few inexpensive ones and just durdling around until I can assemble a winning combo. I guess to that end I want the deck to be somewhat grindy? Regardless, I don't plan on buying a Demonic Tutor anytime soon and Increasing Ambition seems too overcosted to be worth it to be. But thanks for the input!

Entomb, Codex Shredder and cards with dredge like Stinkweed Imp, Golgari Thug, & Dakmor Salvage are great for decks that have graveyard shenanigans.

You are probably aware of it already but you do have an infinite combo in the deck (Goblin Bombardment/ Sun Titan/Fiend Hunter) In decks with infinitite combs especially i like tutors but i think all decks should hvae them. Demonic Tutor and Increasing Ambition are two to consider.

Karmic Guide/Reveillark/Goblin Bombardment also goes infinite and those two fliers also synergize with alesha making them worth it even if it wasn't for the combo

Metallic Mimic pairs well with Adaptive Automaton

Ascendant Evincar seems too expensive but not terriblesame with Dread Slaver

Helldozer is slow, but if he comes online he seems legit. you'll probably need to test him out in your meta.

Lightning Greaves>Swiftfoot Bootsif you can afford em.Graf Harvest>Cover of Darkness

Scourge of Nel Toth is just too expensive for my taste, but hey he is a flyin' Zombie..I could see it getting cut in favor of a more efficient card.

Diabolic Tutormy least favorite tutor, should be replaced by a more efficient one, like Vampiric TutorDemonic TutorBeseech the QueenRune-Scarred Demonor any other one. There are probably 8 more I can't think of right now. BtQ being one of the budget option.

Forced Marchseems like there are better board wipe options, especially since this pretty much guaranties killing all Z's. Toxic DelugeDamnationLife's FinalePlague Wind

Jet Medallion> Mind Stoneor another rando rock

remove Smother for kill with life gain like Consuming Vapors.

You have a lot of life loss but I am not seeing life gain, consider cards like Whip of ErebosExquisite Bloodor any other cards that have lifelink tacked on them.

that should give you some options to trade for. I would also check out the other Gisa lists on EDHREC for ideas, she is a very popular commander. Have Fun :)

I do love dragons. Dragons are my second fave tribe next to rats.

You have a lot of great cards in here, but I notice some things are lacking.

Tutors: Since you run all five colors, why not run some tutors. You already have Sarkhan's Triumph, but why not run a few others. Your commander works as a tutor, but you have to get him out first, and hope that no one messes with your graveyard. I would add at least four more to your deck: Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Increasing Ambition are some of my faves that let you add a card right to your hand. The last two are pretty cheap, while Demonic is a bit pricey.

Recursion: I see that reusing your dragons is a theme, but you only have a few cards that do it and they are all one offs. Palace Siege, Phyrexian Reclamation, and Volrath's Stronghold all stay on the field and let you use their effect over and over again. In tribal decks, I find Patriarch's Bidding to be great.

MORE Dragons: Utvara Hellkite, Hellkite Tyrant, Hellkite Charger, Scourge of Valkas, and Tyrant's Familiar are some of the better Dragons I've noticed you are missing.

Other helpful cards: Dragonspeaker Shaman and Urza's Incubator will help lower the cost of your dragons, making it easier to summon them. Dragon Tempest is just like Scourge of Valkas only it's an enchantment.

I have a LOT of other card suggestions, but I don't want to overwhelm you. I hope these suggestions help you out and if you want more help let me know. EDHREC is a great place to go to get ideas. I go there when first constructing my decks for ideas on what to put in the deck.
