Dusk Legion Zealot Discussion

Seeing as this deck top end of the mana curve is 3 I feel that deathtouch on a creature for removal isnt really a good point to keep the creature in, as you are an aggro deck and you will want to be attacking each turn if able and not leaving creatures back to block with.
Being an aggro deck is why I think Gatekeeper of Malakir is a better inclusion than Dusk Legion Zealot as you can curve out a 1/2/3 drop and use the kicker ability to hopefully clear the way to carry on attacking with vampires. Dusk legion fills the board with smaller vampires and makes the game go longer giving your opponent time to find a additional creatures or a sweeper like Wrath of God or Supreme Verdict .

I'd slot Shared Animosity in over Door of Destinies. Door does nothing when it comes down and needs gas to essentially feed it to get it to do anything. I have the same opinion of Cathar's Crusade here actually Instead for finishers I ran Shared Animosity, Mirror Entity , and Reconnaissance (I'll make a 2nd post just for this card to explain how busted it is).
I'd also run more card draw, this deck can end up with no hand in topdeck mode pretty fast. Drop your 1 time draw like read the bones and syphon mind and consider Greed , Dark Prophecy , Herald's Horn , Twilight Prophet , and if you feel your manabase can handle it, Necropotence . I literally ran all of those + skullclamp and Dusk Legion Zealot because this deck needs draw power to not fold to the first boardwipe you see.
On the note of folding to boardwipes... consider Boros Charm to protect your entire board instead of just creatures like Rootborn Defenses. (Or both, you run a lot of boardwipes yourself. Consider Last One Standing instead of Phyrexian Rebirth)

My thought process is that Nighthawk is like an addition set of Gifted Aetherborns. I have been testing around with looting to mixed results. Definitely wanna try Vial the more I dwell on it, as well as Tormenting Voice. Also been finding myself looking at Dusk Legion Zealot I played a lot of Merfolk back in the day that it's similar to silvergill.
Also considering main board Asylum Visitor

I use Glint-Sleeve Siphoner in an energy build to replace Dark Confidant. But I don’t think you want that here. Asylum Visitor is meh early on. Phyrexian Arena is also meh and doesn’t have a body on it. Dusk Legion Zealot can be a one shot, but cards like Sign in Blood would be better if that’s the route you want to go down.

Thanks for the input Jaego! I'm gonna run that through MTGA myself and try it out! I do enjoy the card draw off of Dusk Legion Zealot but I can see some situations I wish he would have been a Goblin Motivator

I have been playing this deck on Arena some, but subbed in Goblin Motivator in place of the Dusk Legion Zealot and it feels really good. It really ups the tempo of the deck. It allows Legion Warboss to mentor on T3. It hastens a T4 Demon of Catastrophes to swing for a quick 6. And it allows your Rite of Belzenlok Demon or Torgaar, Famine Incarnate to attack immediately. Goblin Motivator has been a win con multiple times for me. The last game I played before typing out this comment, I was one turn away from death when I top-decked Torgaar, Famine Incarnate, hastened him with Goblin Motivator, and attacked and sac'd with Thud to swing for 14 and snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Plus it just goes better with the whole Goblins&Demons theme.

Hey, I'm actually playing a pretty similar deck in MTGA right now (or at least I think so ^^). The main difference in my deck is that I go heavy on the Muldrotha, the Gravetide game plan with a lot of permanents to cast from my graveyard once Muldrotha is on the field.
Some exaples which you don't have in your list are: Show
Evolving Wilds: Thinning your deck from basics every turn seems nice... (well I'm also playing much more basics than you)
Burglar Rat: Hand destruction, replayable from graveyard
Dusk Legion Zealot: Card draw, replayable from graveyard
Connive / Concoct: this card is great, it let's you steal your enemies small stuff and also enables you to pull important creatures from your graveyard (Ravenous Chupacabra; Doom Whisperer; Carnage Tyrant, Muldrotha, the Gravetide). Also from my experience most players seem to not "know" this card or don't expect it
Whisper Agent: another mostly unexpected card, goes well with the "get good stuff into the graveyard for later" plan and triggers Disinformation Campaign, I mostly use it as a 3cmc "deal 3 damage to target attacking creature" spell
As mine is a Bo1 List and there are no permanents working as boards-wipes I usually struggle with decks going wide with creatures. Also from my experience Hostage Taker underperforms a bit compared to Ravenous Chupacabra as for me it mostly comes "online" after the 6+cmc mark so you can actually play the stolen creature/artifact the same turn to avoid removal.
