Duskborne Skymarcher Discussion

What is your budget for this deck? I can provide better suggestions with a budget in mind. But as it is right now, I would remove Vampire Revenant, Duskborne Skymarcher, Exultant Skymarcher, Glorifier of Dusk, Skyblade of the Legion, and probably Voracious Vampire. You definitely want a playset of Legion Lieutenant, Adanto Vanguard, and Skymarcher Aspirant. Also, go with a full playset of Dusk Legion Zealot. Again, with a budget in mind I can provide better choices.

Braingamer youre totally right about the Unclaimed Territory vs Forsaken Sanctuary. My build used to not be so creature heavy and I havent fixed the mana base and completely forgot! XD

As for Vicious Conquistador, Ive been on and off between him and Duskborne Skymarcher. The reasons why I chose the latter was 1) my build is more white focused with black splash and 2) I like Duskborne Skymarcher mind games. Who do you want to block? Oh, that one? Ok then I dmg boost this one! But Ill try Vicious Conquistador at your request. Thanks for the feedback! Any other suggestions?

OH and also instead of Duskborne Skymarcher you should run 4 Vicious Conquistador it's basically a 1 mana 2/2 vampires.

Champion of Dusk provides 2 or 3 cards and is a 4/4 body.

Duskborne Skymarcher may activate Mavren Fein quite safely because it flies but I'm not sure.

Ixalan's Binding in the maindeck may be better in your local meta, with 1 card you get rid of 3 - 4 threats.

Regarding your mana problems you could try Forsaken Sanctuary since you have no 1 mana drops

I'd suggest removing:- 2x Anointed Deacon: cost is too high for what it does - 1x Blight Keeper: ability cost is too high for standard - 4x Encampment Keeper: again, too high - 1x Lurking Chupacabra: not enough exploring for it to benefit - 1x Queen's Bay Soldier: much better creatures you could get for 2 drop - 1x Boneyard Parley: CMC too high, effect not that great - 1x Spreading Rot: land destruction isn't necessary - 1x Cobbled Wings: won't need this with vampires - 2x Dusk Legion Dreadnought: 5 drop vigilance, does nothing else - 2x Prying Blade: won't need the mana - 1x Raiders' Wake: will be taken out too quickly to be useful

So, this leaves you with 15 open spots. I'm assuming you want to stay in the XLN block? For additions, I'd suggest looking at cards like Adanto Vanguard, Bishop's Soldier, Gifted Aetherborn (not XLN but a great card), Sanctum Seeker, Vicious Conquistador, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodcrazed Paladin and Duskborne Skymarcher.

For removal, try things like Duress, Fatal Push, Walk the Plank, anything low cost but preemptive or quick.

Free creatures with lifelink? Always great. Try Queen's Commission and Call to the Feast. Legion's Landing also helps pump out tokens AND can give you , so feel free to add a second one.

There are a lot of options for your deck, especially if you're not staying in XLN specifically. Try some of the ones I listed above and see how it runs for you. You may be able to remove 1-2 lands after working on your creatures, which are very heavy. Aim for closer to 20. As a general rule of thumb for Standard, 5 CMC is high for any card, so keep that in mind when picking out cards. You can have one or two around 5 CMC but they have to be worth it.

Hope this helps!

You're running plenty of 3-drops, but no 1-drops at all. Exultant Skymarcher can probably be replaced with Vicious Conquistador, Skymarcher Aspirant, or Duskborne Skymarcher.

Sword-Point Diplomacy is pretty bad, I'd replace with either some kind of removal or Vampire's Zeal. It's a pretty nasty combat trick, especially if you can threaten profitable trades with any of your 1/1 tokens.

@Flyboarg, I go back and forth on Yahenni. I could go for more three drops, but Yahenni just seems to conditional. Yes it potentially gets huge, and if I was doing the boardwipe deck I drafted up on paper I would probably have it as a playset. But when it comes down to it, a 2/2 that only buffs itself for three doesn't fit a go-wide strat. I already have a couple so I plan on leaving them in while I build, but I don't know if they make the final cut.

@Apex_killjoy02, Vamps is a lifegain deck. Even without my tokens, I have 12 ways to gain life. Having a champion refill my hand turn six after I played everything really helps to close out the game. Duskborne Skymarcher fills a very interesting role in the deck. It is surprisingly common to go turn 1: Legion's Landing  Flip, turn 2 any two of Duskborne Skymarcher, Vicious Conquistador, Skymarcher Aspirant, turn three swing to flip LL into Adanto, the First Fort and play a four drop or two two drops, or heck even activating Adanto. I want to make sure I have enough one drops to make that consistently possible. Plus, if I have out a Legion Lieutenant or Sanctum Seeker, it's getting at least two damage in the air in every turn. Sometimes this deck, or decks like it, get into board stalls pretty quick and that flying chip damage really adds up. (I also have a bit of a soft spot for any art done by Seb McKinnon ever since my first attempt at competitive magic was a Debt to the Deathless deck)

I would say if it was an aggro deck or not. If it is then I would take out Yahenni, Undying Partisan,Twilight Prophet, and Martyr of Dusk. They all don't fit an aggro plan. If you took those out then you would just have to add Vicious Conquistador,and Duskborne Skymarcher. That also would give you space to add whatever removal that you think you should add. Regardless of what you add, bringing in more Sanctum Seeker is a must. It gives you a higher chance of hitting it when it matters most.
