Elenda, the Dusk Rose Discussion
22 hours ago
usaDiabetic I've updated the description. 30-35 lands is as trim as it can go, haha!
It is true that once there are more than 3 opponents this kind of strategy faces greater opposition. I've played most often with 1-4 opponents but 4, 5, or more opponents would be trouble!
To be fair to the deck, the card draw of Herald's Horn, Skullclamp, The Immortal Sun, Vanquisher's Banner, Asylum Visitor, Champion of Dusk, Dusk Legion Zealot, Forerunner of the Legion, Twilight Prophet, Dark Prophecy, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena and reanimation of Victimize, Patriarch's Bidding, Living Death, Bloodline Necromancer help sustain after board wipes.
Enough creatures have excellent effects as well to benefit from being knocked out including Kheru Bloodsucker, Paladin of Atonement, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Kalastria Highborn, Pawn of Ulamog, Voldaren Pariah Flip, Bloodghast, Oathsworn Vampire, Viscera Seer, Blood Artist, and Falkenrath Noble.
And for disruption/removal there's New Blood, The Immortal Sun, Voldaren Pariah Flip, Vampire Hexmage, Thief of Blood, Patron of the Vein, Captivating Vampire, Bloodhusk Ritualist, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Guul Draz Assassin, and Bishop of Binding.
I'm open to suggestion though. Any other removal options you might recommend?

A lot of things have changed since you last played. No worries though. Just to let you know, Kaladesh/Aether Revolt and Amonkhet/Hour of Devastation will rotate out of Standard in October to make room for Guilds of Ravinica. I will be excluding cards from those four sets so you don't invest in cards cycling out of a format.
I also need to know if you're going for a budget, mid-cost or no limit in cost deck.
Here are some Artifacts, Colorless, Lands and (B/W)Orzhov to look for in Standard are as follows in no particular order.
Cleansing Nova | Vraska's Contempt | Cast Down | Seal Away | Twilight Prophet
Karn, Scion of Urza | Isolated Chapel | Field of Ruin | Arguel's Blood Fast Flip | Settle the Wreckage
Invoke the Divine | Sovereign's Bite | Arvad the Cursed | Take Vengeance | Aryel, Knight of Windgrace
Baird, Steward of Argive | Benalish Marshal | Danitha Capashen, Paragon | Divest | Duress
Shalai, Voice of Plenty | Resplendent Angel | Axis of Mortality | Bishop of Rebirth | Call to the Feast
Vona, Butcher of Magan | Champion of Dusk | Profane Procession Flip | Elenda, the Dusk Rose | Legion Lieutenant

You're off to a decent start, I'd say. Your curve looks good, though you're mana base is a bit weak at the moment (you should be running about 40 land for consistency). Some commentary as I took notes:
Heliod, God of the Sun doesn't seem to fit with the overall theme of the deck. You'd be better off with a card that will give you lifelink creatures or something, to help offset the life-loss from your various effects. Whip of Erebos would be my pick for this deck.
Blood Tribute is going to want more vampires, which are kind of slim in your deck at the moment.
Brainspoil is...poor removal. I would remove it. Killing Wave, on the other hand, is a good choice for sweep, and Remorseless Punishment and Temporal Extortion are nice. I like Near-Death Experience as an alternate win-con, but Path of Bravery is going to hamper that, especially since you don't appear to have super-consistent lifegain.
You have...two? infect cards. I would remove them since infect is really an alternate win-con that you aren't geared toward. Diseased Vermin might make for an alternate rat if you must have a rat, especially if you can give it evasion somehow, and it works with lifelink. It's not a strong pick for the deck, though.
Seekers' Squire doesn't really seem to fit any of your themes.
Ones that work somewhat with the life drain: Defiant Bloodlord, Retreat to Hagra, Thrull Parasite, Bontu's Monument, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Underworld Coinsmith (this would be a reason to keep Heliod, actually), Zulaport Cutthroat, and maybe Vizkopa Confessor
Others that pay life or give you life somehow: Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Chainer, Dementia Master, Cruel Sadist, Phyrexian Reclamation, Vona, Butcher of Magan, and Elenda, the Dusk Rose (for working with your creatures dying).
All of this, of course, is subject to what you're willing to buy, and you don't have to listen to anything I say. It's your deck, after all.

Thanks for the suggestions! colinnzflakk, you don't come off rude at all! I agree with what you're saying about Vicious Conquistador, Champion of Dusk, and running 22 lands in the context of an aggro deck. I don't really know what I want to do with this deck yet (though I'd say the current decklist probably reveals a more midrangey though process), so I'm going to make a copy of this deck and modify the duplicate into an aggro version and see which I like playing with better.
I like the idea of the single Legion's Landing Flip. I think I might cut one of the Cast Downs for that. It's aggravating how often I've had them dead in hand due to The Scarab God or Hazoret the Fervent or UW control decks in general.
I'll make a note to put Elenda, the Dusk Rose on the chopping block, but she's been so great for me so far that I was considering whether I wanted more, not less. I'll take notes on what happens every time she shows up in my games.

I recommend adding Skymarcher Aspirant, as you can get the City's Blessing pretty easily with vampires and then you have a flyer. I'd cut Elenda, the Dusk Rose, as most meta decks are able to outrace you and get you down low enough to where Elenda won't serve any use. If you're going for more aggro, Vicious Conquistador is also a good one to get in with damage that can't be prevented. You can probably cut out a few lands if you cut out some of the four and five drops, but make sure to keep in at least two Sanctum Seeker, because that makes the deck very powerful. My deck runs 22 lands and doesn't run Champion of Dusk at all. If you're going for aggro and have a bunch of little vampires, you shouldn't need to worry about card draw, since you'll be drawing gas for most of the game regardless. If you want card draw, keep in the Dusk Legion Zealot. I'm sorry if this is a little too over the top and rude, I don't intend to come off that way. :)

lets say i have Elenda, the Dusk Rose with 9 +1/+1 counters on her. And someone would put 10x -1/-1 counters on her. So she will die because of state based action by 0 toughness. Will she gonna make any tokens ?
Same question but with Tragic Slip with morbid
Thank you very much.

My EDH cube has a +1/+1 counters theme running through it. Below are a list of the legends I use in it to push the cube in different directions.
It’s obviously supported with on-theme filler and not all the colors are represented here. White and green are probably the best places to get counters, and are slightly underrepresented in this list, but Voltron obviously fits into the +1/+1 counter theme well. Anyway, do what you will with this, and let me know if you have any questions.
