Maybe Drana, Liberator of Malakir? It seems good but it seemed like maybe a lower impact 3 drop, and definitely lower impact than Xenagos.

(I really like your list btw! Saskia is badass!)

Mabye you need some more anthem cards to pump up your little dudes. But it depends a bit of your play style. Here are some more of good cards for Edgar aggro decks.

This is what i would change:

  • Drana, Liberator of Malakir for Grasp of Fate. Grasp is a very good card but 3 Mana is very heavy for "just" 3 permanents. I rather take a early "anthem" effect before your other creatures deals or get damage (a bit like Edgar second ability).

  • Anje's Ravager for Necropotence. Necropotence is a absoulte broken card but it has the same problem as Grasp of Fate. It refresh your hand every turn, but you play a aggro deck, you don't really need a full hand every turn. Necropotence is a very good combo fishing card, and with 3 black pips isn't that easy. Anje's Ravager works very well in my deck, because your hand is like 2-4 cards nearly all the time, what is more than enough. ;-)

  • Throne of the God-Pharaoh for Smothering Tithe. Smothering Tithe is one of the best white cards in EDH, but with a lower CMC you will sit on a lot of treasures or a stax effects rather to kill your opponents. Throne to double your damage in nearly each of your turns for only 2 mana.

But that's just my opinion. Have a nice day :-) Feel free, mabye you finde some inspirations 99 problems but Edgar ain't one (Edgar-Commander)

Contamination is awesome. Probably a little too backbreaking for but it’s got a spot on the maybeboard for sure.
As for alternate commanders I really don't know. This is my first deep dive into Commander. I considered Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip when building the deck originally. But Sheoldred, Whispering One was always a favorite of mine.

Oh, not sure how I didn't think of this earlier, but Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord giving a +1 to Drana, Liberator of Malakir-- she'd have first strike and deathtouch, and she'd get a +1/+1 counter precombat! Then she'd have flying and lifelink on top of that? Nice combo to consider.

It seems like you have a lot of madness enablers, but only 9 cards with madness. Sure, Falkenrath Gorger can enable madness for your creatures, but you only have 2x of those. As a result, it looks like you'll have a lot of outlets for madness triggers, but few cards that can take advantage of it.

While they don't specifically trigger madness, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Drana, Liberator of Malakir would be excellent additions.

Hi there,

Just noticed you upvoted my sliver deck. Thank you. Had a look at this and I would definitely look at your land count and ramp. Would suggest about 36 to 37. There is also some real good vampires out there. Here's a few:

Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Ascendant Evincar, Butcher of Malakir, Elenda, the Dusk Rose,

And many others. Also some more draw effects like Phyrexian Arena and tutors like Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor and even things like Liliana Vess.

Hope this helps

Consider running Reconnaissance . It allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.

It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage is dealt (handy for getting counters from Drana, Liberator of Malakir to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's also over 150 comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires
