Drana's Emissary Discussion

I think Ensnaring Bridge would actually assist this deck more than hinder it, as its effect doesn't target only the opponent nor stall defenses. Since the object of this deck isn't high power attacks (it's the low level triggers that drain the life of your opponent on a steady basis that do the damage) they could have no cards in their hand and it wouldn't stop anything, but at the same time, it would hinder their own attacks.

For example, if I had Cliffhaven Vampire and Exquisite Blood on the field and used ANY trigger ( Ajani's Welcome , Piranha Marsh , etc) then the infinite loop would trigger and the game would be over - Ensnaring Bridge would have made no difference. Or if I didn't have the infinite loop out, but had something like Drana's Emissary on the field - attacks would be limited, defenses would be the same as usual, but life drain would be continuous.

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!

Adaptive Automaton for Arvad the Cursed (Not enough legendary creatures in the deck, taking a static pump for all better than +2 for commander, also way easier to cast)

Authority of the Consuls (helps fuel reservoir) -> Drana's Emissary (You'll find Authority scales way better than this)

Extra suggestions:

Victimize -> Sanguine Sacrament

Path of Ancestry -> Swamp

Anguished Unmaking -> Sorin's Thirst

Utter End -> Blood Tribute (I won't fault you for choosing flavor here)

Bloodlord of Vaasgoth -> Regal Bloodlord

Graveshifter -> Font of Agonies

Cave of Temptation -> Swamp

So I want to start by saying everything in my previous comment still stands, so I won't go over anything I already discussed there. That said, let's take a look at what you've changed.

SideBae Thanks so much for your very detailed notes. I was thinking of adding Drana's Emissary and Agent of Masks for some additional damage and time bombs. Bitterblossom looks like a fun add and seems like it could proove useful for blockers/attackers, triggers for soul sisters, and sac outlets if need be. Did you feel that theres a definite lack of counter spells withing the deck? With what I have in there, its becoming super hard to make cuts. I like having all the tutors in there, but maybe there are better things? Additionally, are Approach of the Second Sun and Test of Endurance other good wincons? Or just cheesy?

I pulled Vampire Envoy . Drana's Emissary is fine flyer with better static effect and the same CMC and I feel more sentimental about her :)

Put in a bit more Land, you should be running 22-24 land depending on how much your CMC is. As SynergyBuild says, you should definitely be running 4x Godless Shrine. Also, in two color decks, you shouldn't be running lotus field. Run Vampire Nighthawk instead of your Bloodthirsty Aerialist . Also, run 6 swamps and 3 plains instead of 3 swamps and 6 plains. Maybe throw in a few more swamps while you're at it. In my opinion, I wouldn't run any plains, just more swamps. You should get more dual lands that don't have to be tapped on their first turn. Also, your cards have a very high mana cost so I would throw in a few Bontu's Monument Also, your creature cards should work well together, but your's don't seem to work while together. I would get rid of Call to the Feast and replace it with some creature cards that can summon vampires, such as Bloodline Keeper  Flip or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet , but if you run them, only run 1-3 as they are expensive. I would run fewer Champions of dusk,as they are expensive and you don't have much lifegain. Also, run 1 less Bolas's Citadel and maybe run some more lifegain, like Drana's Emissary , Rest for the Weary or Chaplain's Blessing
