Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief Discussion
1 day ago
Interesting piece of tech Lil_Kalki but I don't think it works how you think. I can't really wrap my head around it... you're exiling your creatures and they don't blink back... they're just gone.
Frank_Glascock1. I don't like Butcher... too high of a cmc. I'd run Dictate of Erebos if you're going the Grave Pact route. Pariah is really good in that strategy too as it breaks parity and makes your opponents join you in sacrificing 3 creatures.
I've considered Wear // Tear but don't have room. I run Anguished Unmaking over Vindicate for instant speed and exile vs. sorcery speed and destroy.
Incubator is good but I feel it's better in higher cmc tribes like Dragons. Here I feel it makes you overextend unless you have several outlets for excess mana like Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief (same reason I tried but dropped mana echoes). This makes boardwipes even more painful because you're usually in topdeck mode after overextending and eating a boardwipe.
Too much tribal in my meta to run Coat of Arms. Monument I'd try if I still had one. I have enough lords, +1+1 counters effects, and evasive flyers to make Shared Animosity ok as a single finisher.
I just don't feel that 4 mana is worth an extra token in my buikd. I'd run it if I went the Grave Pact/Dictate route with some sac outlets though. I've considered Dark Prophecy but it wasn't viable due to too much life loss in my deck (24 cards in my list make me lose life). I may include it as the list evolves if life becomes less of an issue.

My zeal lead me to make an error. Indulgent Aristocrat should not be listed as it is one of the best one drops we play.
I count 37 other black cards in your deck besides Vampire Nocturnus. Has he been consistent enough for the mana cost?
I am playing New Blood and Captivating Vampire. Has Olivia Voldaren's theft effect been worth the heavy mana investment? If not, she has to be cut as there are too many good four mana creatures competing for that spot. Purphoros, God of the Forge is one along with Sanctum Seeker from Ixalan.
I agree with your cut of Olivia, Mobilized for War and Kalastria Highborn. Tithe Drinker seems lackluster. Mirri the Cursed, Blood Baron of Vizkopa and Drana's Emissary seem too expensive. The worst offender of this group seems to be Blood Baron of Vizkopa as he is expensive and conditional.
I have questioned 13 cards of which two you are cutting two and one, Indulgent Aristocrat, should not have been included. If you could only keep three of the remaining 10 cards what would they be?
You did not mention Sanctum Seeker as one of the new cards you wanted to test. It is the best vampire for your build from the new set.
I am playing Exquisite Blood and am glad you are putting it into the deck. I have been debating whether to pull it out of the deck. Exquisite Blood along with Cliffhaven Vampire form a infinite combo once one of our opponents take damage. I never tutor for it and was thinking of cutting one or both. Did you intentionally leave out combos?

Last_Laugh, I took your and others advice and put Teferi's Protection in the deck. I have only cast it once but it won me the game. I put Boros Charm in today. Has it been performing to your expectations?
I really like your enchantments and instants. I did have questions about several of your creatures. Some of these seem ineffective for the mana or just low cost but offer nothing else.
Can you make a case for the inclusion of these cards:
Vampire Nocturnus, Tithe Drinker, Olivia Voldaren, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Necropolis Regent, Mirri the Cursed, Kalastria Highborn, Indulgent Aristocrat, Drana's Emissary, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, and Anowon, the Ruin Sage?

I'm planning on making a Casual Multiplayer Mono Black commander deck and I was wondering what you guys think is the best general. I was thinking either Erebos, God of the Dead or Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief. Erebos is card draw in the command zone but I'm already planning on running a lot of card draw in the deck. Drana is removal and a wincon with commander damage but I'm not sure I want to spend an entire turn getting rid of one creature. Another general I was looking at was Razaketh, the Foulblooded but I don't like using tutors because I feel it makes game really linear and the same. However, it can help me get out of a tricky situation and find a finisher when the games gone too long. Anyways, what do you guys think?

You don't have a ton of draw power, so if you're depleting your hand really fast Olivia, Mobilized for War seems like she wouldn't do much here. Likewise, I'm not that much of a fan of Sangromancer: she doesn't trigger enough or do much within that.
Everyone's saying to run the outlast lords, but I disagree. They suck pretty badly if you don't have a counter source out, and there will be games in which you don't.
I honestly think that Iroas is better than Mana Echoes in this build. You don't have a ton of mana sinks (the only ones I can see are Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief and Mirror Entity), and Iroas is pretty awesome from an aggro standpoint.
Omitting New Blood seems like a mistake.

Plague Wind seems like to high of a price to play in my opinion, though if it does work its an win. Also Utter End or Anguished Unmaking are very good removal card to play. if your going budget Utter End is a cheaper option. Also if your looking for ways to give your vampires life link then try Whip of Erebos or even Abzan Battle Priest would get the job done. You could also use Loxodon Warhammer equip it to Edgar and swing away. For vampire creatures you could go with Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Malakir Bloodwitch, and Bloodsworn Steward. Hope some of this helps

And about pestilent souleater it's intended to kill by infect. Together with Jodah's Avenger , Stormchaser Chimera, Morphling, AEtherling and/or Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief it can be dealy. But you are right, there only utility for this card is to be caged by Mairsil. It is possible that it's just not worth it, but I'll give it a try.
