Drana's Emissary Discussion

MrHighscore on Karlovation - Taxation is extortion

@CelineT good point. I'll take out Academy Rector (I should probably also remove Debtors' Knell, but on the ohter hand: fun stuff).

Minor tweaks basted on cards I have in stock

I would take out Sanguine Bond and replace it with Drana's Emissary. The bond doesn't come in early enough for it to be effective, whereas your Emissary can be played on turn 3 at the earliest and triggers some of your vampire abilities. I only playtested a little bit, but what you have is pretty cool. I would be careful around control as sometimes they could freeze you up, but I haven't really seen much of that. Good deck so far.

Drana's Emissary and Recumbent Bliss fit right in

Wound Reflection (maybe)

Vampiric Link or Spirit Link (these do not rely on combat damage and can be placed on opponents creatures if need be) Spirit Loop (only your creatures)...

I would consider dropping the infect sub-theme and going full life gain/drain unless you go full on infect (an unpopular choice).

Aetherflux Reservoir should be hilarious

You seem to have lost Drana's Emissary somewhere along the line. I would tend to lose the Gearhulks (which have very high cmc) and try to keep at least 3 Emissaries, which always have a presence on the board.

I am not sold on Pressure Point, sure it gives you some card advantage, but with Electrostatic Pummeler decks being so popular at the moment, I would want to keep something like Immolating Glare in my hand to counter the killer combo. Pressure Point would also do the trick, but the temptation to play it prematurely will be high.

With the advent of AER, you would want some copies of the consulate card that is a board-wipe for your opponents artifacts (can't think of the name right now)

@icedog I have plenty of experience with this deck. I basicly main this deck. I try to make this Deck consistent as possible, By having playsets of Cards like Cliffhaven Vampire or Drana's Emissary. My favorite experience is gaining 90 life with Blighted Steppe and Sorin, Grim Nemesis's Tokens (I own sorin in this Deck irl). I recommend to proxy this deck before buying, just like any other Deck. Ps Thank you Icedog for the upvote it helps alot.

Lots of gain life! My questions is what do you do with it? How do you win the game? A Felidar Sovereign would definitely help out. What about adding in a Serra Avatar, Ajani's Pridemate, Test of Endurance or something like those. You want to find something that will win or help you win. I also agree with running Sanguine Bond. And if you run them might as well run Exquisite Blood for the combo kill.

I'm not too sure on the win strategy so apart from the stuff above you might like these options. If you want to bleed them look at Drana's Emissary. And other cards that deal damage slowly, yet effectively. If you want to make a janky burn run stuff like Tainted Remedy and False Cure.

Just a heads up, the deck your running is casual. Might want to change that setting. Modern is anything 8th edition or newer, you have some older cards in there. Also, your consistency seems like it might be a little off. You might want to think about running 4 of on your favorite cards.

Lone Rider  Flip and Drana's Emissary are both cards I had in earlier builds of this deck. I pulled the former to add in Aerial Responder and the latter to make room for more removal. As for Noxious Gearhulk, it's definitely on my list of possible adds. I only have one so far, and would like at least one more before adding them in.

Drana's Emissary in place of the marauder seems good.
