Duskborne Skymarcher Discussion

Thoughts on having Duskborne Skymarcher, Adanto Vanguard and Bloodcrazed Paladin in this? Duskborne is really great for having 1 mana I think, with flying and giving some other creatures a +1. 2 bloodcrazed in main and in side. And Adanto is a very hard kill to get rid of. Saying you have the extra life.

I presume you're running the Skittering Heartstopper because of deathtouch. Whilst it's more mana expensive, Gifted Aetherborn is a better fit for your deck. It's one of the strongest vampires in the format period, and will trigger Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle where the heartstopper doesn't. It's also a great target for your Duskborne Skymarcher due to the lifelink.

You may want to have a look at the volume of creatures you're playing and the numbers of each. I'd say that you should be concentrating on some as four-ofs to help with variance. Playing one and two of each will mean that your deck will play very differently each time you play it. Plus, I think it will allow you to bring the average curve down from 2.58.

Adanto Vanguard, Duskborne Skymarcher, mavren fein probably want to be four-ofs in your deck? I love Kambal, Consul of Allocation and depending on your local meta he may a rock in the main board. But if not, he may be someone you want to have in the SB for 'spell' heavy match-ups.

All in all, I really like the shell - gotta love Vampires! But playing more four-ofs and taking some of the other creatures out will probably help make the deck more consistent.

Oh, and I can't speak highly enough of Gifted Aetherborn though he does suffer with the rampant removal in Standard currently. Which is why Adanto Vanguard is so good!

I'm personally not a fan. I've been trying to keep my deck really low. Nothing more than 4 Cmc. Sanctum seeker is definitely my wincon. But if you really want to keep bishop of rebirth, you should think about cards like, Duskborne Skymarcher and Adanto Vanguard. Having some air support and something that is hard to kill can be a real nuisance played the right way. Id also think of Bloodcrazed Paladin for side board. For board wipes.

I would runat least a 2 of Legion's Landing  Flip over Duskborne Skymarcher. The ability to keep the pressure on is critical for agro decks if they get pushed to mid game. I would also use something like Costly Plunder to keep you hand loaded for the same reason. You could remove 1 oketra, both yahenni, and 1 harvester for a playset of some draw. The digging will help compensate.

Im a huge fan of God-Pharaoh's Gift in these weenie decks as a solution for mid and late games. A 2 of goes a long way in solving the problem of gasing out later on, and would still allow you to pump out tokens with landing.

Hey, because of the manabase and the budget here consider mono-white Vamps?

Playing just white is easy on the manabase all Plains and by the looks of it other than Aetherborn and Dusk you're playing all Ixalan cards. There's a nice amount of budget white Vamps in Ixalan. There's one good one drop: Duskborne Skymarcher. One good and two playable two drops: Adanto Vanguard and Bishop's Soldier, Skyblade of the Legion. Mavren and Legion Conquistador as three drops. Dusk / Dawn, Settle and Binding as four drops. All these white Vamps work with Dusk which is a powerful interaction.

Here's a possible list:

  • 4x Duskborne
  • 4x Adanto
  • 4x Soldier
  • 3x Skyblade
  • 4x Conquistador
  • 3x Mavren

  • 4x Zeal
  • 3x Dusk
  • 2x Settle
  • 2x Binding

  • 23x Lands

Budget cards not in Ixalan that you can add to this are Shefet Dunes and Oketra's Monument.

Adderite Thanks for the advice. Adding more Call to the Feast and Queen's Commission is a great idea for this deck. Also, I do like the call of Vicious Conquistador over Duskborne Skymarcher

the main reason for taking out a Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle out and replacing it with a Yahenni, Undying Partisan is that Yahenni has the ability to stick to the board, and since it's a legendary and you can only have 1 of those cards on the field at a given time is important. Also, if you're going for a budget build (was just trying to make it more efficient, didn't look at much cost) I'd at least recommend 4 Bishop's Soldiers, the reason you at least want 4 of either of them is A. 2 drop with lifelink, B. (just for the gifted) you get a 2/3 for 2, automatic value, with the addition of deathtouch. So you get a cheap and efficient body.

To address the comment on vampire generation, 3 or 4 Call to the Feast is auto, with Queen's Commission is a good way as well. The deck is also an aggro focus, Duskborne Skymarcher just isn't a good one drop, meanwhile in black, Vicious Conquistador is a 1 drop with black mana that immediately has an extra toughness, AND deals confirmed damage to the opponent, and it doesn't add a nickel to the cost. Inspiring Cleric also has alot of extra potential for a different 3 drop. Hell, drop them to make a 2, 3, or 4 set of Essence Extraction, the vampires with lifelink will give you health, sanguine sacrament gives you a MAJOR bonus in early and late game, and overall it's not the greatest body ever. 4 health can be good, but you'll gave so much lifegain off of tokens you're not gonna need it.

And as a final note: Forsaken Sanctuary got a reprint i did not catch, the card had art from SoI, and I didn't remember it in Amonket at all. (maybe cause I skipped it over and played red black till ramunap red caught on). That card can be useful, and you can put it in the deck so save cash. That's a fault on my part. (but yes, max is 4. And if you're going budget, may be a good replace with Concealed Courtyard)

Adderite, I'm putting this together for laid back non-competetive play. Also, I'm trying to keep it budget.To address a couple of things: I like having Duskborne Skymarcher and Inspiring Cleric to have extra vampires to throw down to combo with Bishop of the Bloodstained and Sanctum Seeker.Why would I take out a Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and replace with another Yahenni, Undying Partisan?

Putting in extra Call to the Feast and Queen's Commission is something I really should do because I like the combo power.

Also, I don't necessarily see the desire for more Gifted Aetherborn, and my reasoning for going with other vampires is mainly budget.

Also, the sidebar on my deck is telling me that this deck is Standard legal, so I'm a bit confused on who to trust since you're saying Forsaken Sanctuary isn't legal (although I'm inclined to trust that I can't have 8 since its not a basic land).

I appreciate the advice and your reference deck looked like a similar strategy for me to refer to.
