Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief Discussion

It also depends on what kind of deck you are running. Aggro players know that every damage counts so Bloodghast T2, and after wraths is relevant. If you are playing more control Guul Draz Assassin is amazing. Personally I would always take Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief over the assassin since it's removal + beater + mana sink. Viscera Seer isn't bad, but playing Skullclamp + black draw packages makes more sense for me. If you play against blue or Threaten players Viscera Seer is irreplaceable.

Steel Hellkite, maybe Thundering Spineback, Scavenging Ooze, Deadeye Tracker, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Soul of New Phyrexia, Soul of Ravnica, Soul of Zendikar, Soul of Innistrad, Fertilid, Cryptbreaker, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Cemetery Reaper, Silklash Spider, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Memnarch, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Polukranos, World Eater, Chameleon Colossus, Heroes' Bane, Viral Drake, Ant Queen, Champion of Stray Souls, Sphinx of Magosi, Stitcher Geralf, Oviya Pashiri, Sage Lifecrafter
Deadeye Navigator would go infinite with a creature that produces 2 or more blue mana and a haste enabler, such as Concordant Crossroads. Kind of clunky as a 4-card combo, but it's on theme. ALso deadeye is just good to protect from removal.
Remember with these infinite mana combos that infinite mana means infinite Tasigur activations, so you draw your whole deck, and you can mill everyone out with infinite Reality Shifts, which is a good removal spell on its own.

I think Edgar Markov really shines in a deck with lots of vampires. According to some sources to have a critical mass of a certain creature type = having around 30 of that type in the deck, this seems to be true for Modern, but also for Commander (as 1/3 of your deck will be of the right tribe).
As you mentionned you have the precon, may I suggest to keep Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief into the deck? She is very good at removing opposing creatures and allows for huge swings. She also doesn't need to tap to use her ability, which is a nice bonus. Another card you could use is Sanctum Seeker as it triggers for every vampire that attacks !
In find that to win games in Commander having both mana and cards is important, so maybe you need some extra draw engines. Phyrexian Arena has been mentionned, but with all the lifegain, you might also be interested in Greed.
I would suggest taking out Anointed Procession as you will not be making super much tokens (they're a nice bonus, but not the main focus of the deck).

Hi there! I worked on a very similar build before the Commander 2017 Series, and I have a few tips.
this Olivia is stronger as a Timmy Aggro general, so you want to have some brutally efficient early game, rather than cards like Dark Impostor, which are high value but very slow. Also, it would be much better for you to add vampires and vampire synergy, rather than Madness cards, as they are less efficient. Here are my recommendations
CUT: Archfiend of Ifnir, Dark Impostor, Insatiable Gorgers, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Stromkirk Occultist. Vampire Cutthroat, Voldaren Pariah Flip, Faith of the Devoted, Gibbering Descent, Fiery Temper, Alms of the Vein, Gisa's Bidding, From Under the Floorboards, Blood Tribute, Cultivator's Caravan, Hedron Archive
ADD: Vampire Nocturnus, Bloodline Keeper Flip, Captivating Vampire, Olivia Voldaren, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Smuggler's Copter, Lightning Bolt, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Living Death, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Coat of Arms, Phyrexian Arena, Outpost Siege, Living Death.

Last_Laugh, what are your thoughts on the three signets and Talisman of Indulgence? I cut all four for Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, another land (37) and Stromkirk Noble. I am not sold on Stromkirk but he seemed the best of the one drop vampires I was not playing. This deck seems to need to go fast and both Moxes seem to fit that strategy.
I experimented with Glengarry's 29 Land Edgar deck. I could be wrong but I think it may be tough for it to win in a four person pod. I am trying to borrow some of the ideas that have synergy with your deck. Gone are some of the more expensive vampires:
These were replaced by mostly one and two mana vampires. I am playing Shared Animosity, Coat of Arms, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Eldrazi Monument. The first three really care more about the quantity of vampires over the quality.
I am also trying out Scapegoat which I borrowed from Glengarry. It seems in theory to be a card that mitigates the damage done from board wipes.
I am not playing Phyrexian Arena, Heirloom Blade or Greed. I have only cast Dark Prophecy once but it was effective. I am playing additional life gain vampires and may be able to negate some of the life loss.
What do you think? With which of the points are you in most disagreement?
