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

asprinks on Synergy? *Pioneer*

Plz forgive if this is a stupid thing to ask: Is synergy a must have for competitive play? I’ve had mixed results with this mono black aggro deck over the past 5 or 6 weeks. Any comments/criticisms from anyone more experienced than me (everyone ha!) are appreciated.


1 drop - Pilfering Imp x2 - Vampire of the Dire Moon x3 - Foulmire Knight x3 - Banehound x4

2 drop - Order of Midnight x2

3 drop - Midnight Reaper x2 - Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Bloodthirsty Aerialist x2 - Murderous Rider x3

3*/4 drop - Spawn of Mayhem x3 - Rankle, Master of Pranks x2


- Fatal Push x4 - Thoughtseize x2 - Duress - Despise - Ultimate Price


- Swamp x18 - Mutavault x2 - Cabal Stronghold - Geier Reach Sanitarium - Rogue's Passage - Fabled Passage

Sideboard is a couple more removals, green countermeasures, and planeswalker removals

If this was a stupid question, I’m sorry for spam. TY for taking the time to read.

Suggested Additions -

Spark Double - Copies Marchesa 100% of games. Double dethrone, 2 Marchesas protecting each other, and the copy enters immediately protecting itself.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir - Essentially Commander #2 for you here. Reliably gets counters to your team without worrying about the Throne.

Glen Elendra Archmage / Goblin Bombardment - Best counterspell you can add here. Goblin Bombardment + Glen Elendra also enables an infinite combo with Mikaeus.

Midnight Reaper / Grim Haruspex - Amazing draw engines here.

Sadistic Hypnotist / Oona's Blackguard - Discard helps seal up games tighter than a Dolphin's butthole.

Sage of Fables - Immediately protects Marchesa, allows you to abuse wizard etb/death triggers every turn, and it enables an infinite combo with Ashnod's Altar and Flayer of the Hatebound. (See my list for explanations on both infinite combos I mentioned)

Last One Standing / Jokulhaups - More efficient boardwipes.

I can keep going on both additions and cuts... just let me know you're picking up what I'm putting down. Feel free to check out my list for ideas, it's one of the top rated Marchesa lists on this site. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Every Masochist Needs a Marchesa To Love Them

Well, suggestions based on: no money restriction..

Thirsting Bloodlord and Sanctum Seeker are not necessary.

Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a better choice than Bloodthirsty Aerialist .

You haven't any drop 2. Maybe Asylum Visitor , Gifted Aetherborn , Bloodcrazed Paladin .

Indulgent Aristocrat can be another good drop 1.

The artifacts are trash.

Nothing of Duress , pick Thoughtseize or go to another mechanic. Murder it the worst choice for this type of card, but Fatal Push is a good and not so expensive card.

At least, variation on lands, the Castle Locthwain , for example. Mutavault is required for any tribal deck.

Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim and Drana's Emissary might be solid additions to this deck. Drana's Emissary looks to be a particularly good fit. In the 4 mana spot, I think you're correct that Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet would be better. I love Cliffhaven Vampire , but Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is just sooooo much better. Even Drana, Liberator of Malakir is pretty good. It doesn't necessarily hit the theme you have, but it's pretty good. It's a bit weak (power) for what you get, but Vampire Envoy is yet another card that would fit your theme.

Hope these suggestions help! +1 from me!

While the can be difficult, I do think that Drana, Liberator of Malakir would be very useful. Of course, I think Drana, Liberator of Malakir is useful in every black deck, so... :-D

Not a bad start... I do have several suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.

Draw: You're lacking in this department. Necropotence , Twilight Prophet , Greed , and Herald's Horn . I literally run all those plus the draw creatures/Skullclamp you run.

Finishers: Drop Door of Destinies... it's a significant investment that does nothing for your current board and requires gas to get it to do anything after. Reconnaissance (2nd post dedicated entirely to this card) is your best finisher by far.

Board Protection: Teferi's Protection (if you have one). Boros Charm and Scapegoat are your next best options. Being able to quickly recover or dodge wraths outright wins games.

Ramp: It's worth running your Black Talismans. Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Indulgence , and Fellwar Stone

Creatures: Cordial Vampire and Drana, Liberator of Malakir

Misc.: Diabolic Intent and Austere Command

Rakish Heir , Vampire Nighthawk , Indulgent Aristocrat , Sanctum Seeker and Stromkirk Noble are all budget cards that would slot well into this deck. If you're willing to spend a bit more, Gifted Aetherborn , Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Knight of the Ebon Legion would be good additions. I'd also move Olivia, Mobilized for War into the main in place of Vampire Warlord or Markov Patrician

Not really sure what purpose Bubbling Cauldron serves here. Clear a Path seems a strange choice to me as well. Terminate would provide a much broader scope of removal for just more and be instant speed too.

Like the inclusion of By Force but Demolish seems a bit slow for an aggro deck.
