Falkenrath Gorger

Creature — Vampire Beserker

Each Vampire creature card you own that isn't on the battlefield has madness. The madness cost is equal to its mana cost. (If you discard a card with madness, you may cast it for its madness cost instead of putting it into your graveyard.)

Falkenrath Gorger Discussion

multimedia on Edgar Markov EDH

Hey, I suggest more one drop and two drop Vamps less five drop Vamps and six drops.

Consider adding (suggestions that have a (s) next them I consider staples for Edgar):

Consider cutting:

  • Anowon, the Ruin Sage
  • Bishop of Rebirth
  • Black Market
  • Bloodline Necromancer
  • Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
  • Cathars' Crusade
  • Crimson Honor Guard
  • Fell the Mighty
  • Hour of Devastation
  • Sanguine Bond

  • Blood Tribute

These changes will drop the avg. CMC a lot, consistently more chances to get more Vamps into play before you cast Edgar. Curving out with a one drop, two drop, three drop Vamps can give you a very good aggressive board presence. These changes will help to be able to do this.


Other cards to consider adding:

Other cards to consider cutting:

  • Pawn of Ulamog
  • Mathas, Fiend Seeker
  • Mortify
  • Worn Powerstone
  • Kindred Boon

Good luck with your deck.

How do you feel about trying Mardu? I don't play standard but you haven't had Stromkirk Captain for quite some time and Falkenrath Gorger's cycled out. There's a white vamp savannah lions-type creature (a 2/1 for 1 mana in other words) and vamps officially now have their own equivalent to all those 2 mana lords that made me so jealous of merfolk for years.

Thanks for the warning, I confess I did not remember that part when building the deck. Luckily it's just inconvinience that I can work around.

Here is some cards I think you could remove: Braid of Fire, Ghostly Prison, Rakdos's Return, Fire Covenant, Debt to the Deathless, sanctum seeker, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Falkenrath Gorger and Bloodlord of Vaasgoth.

I tried to keep in mind what you are trying to do do but maybe it's too much? To my eye your deck is Vampire tribal with comboes with a lot of removal, return from the grave thingies and pillowfort.

For the lands, that's for you to decide and test out what works but I would suggest at least to add the mardu colored pain lands: Caves of Koilos, Sulfurous Springs and Battlefield Forge. If you make a lot of tokens Westvale Abbey  Flip would work, also I would use Temple of the False God.

hey cool deck! Falkenrath Gorger is good in vamp decks when paired with Smuggler's Copter. Attack with the copter and cast a creature card for madness and get a free draw, copter can also help bloodghast "block" as he can crew the copter. I would cut Captivating Vampire if you are also playing Olivia. CMC of 2.33 is a little high for only 19 lands and no way to draw and tutor them, a few more might help with consistency. I'd agree that inq. of kozilek can come out if you have a playset of thoughtsieze, same with scavenging grounds if you already have the cage and relic. Dismember could be a good add to remove indestructible. some artifact removal could also help, Kolaghan's Command/Vandalblast. Good luck with the deck!

Hey there! Nice deck you have here! Addressing your questions in order:

First, I would recommend cutting the following cards:

You may notice a theme with the above cards: They're mostly low-CMC Vampires with a small effect. While I rarely play super-aggro EDH decks, the fact that you're facing usually 3 opponents with 40 life each means that simply having a lot of creatures doesn't do a lot. Edgar Markov makes a lot of tokens on his own, which can all grow absurdly large, so I really don't think you should be focused on spending your cards on weenies when you can be doing better things.

As for your other concerns:

  • I really don't think Well of Lost Dreams has a place here. It's best in heavy-lifegain decks that lack other strong ways (and need strong ways) to draw cards, neither of which is a good descriptor for this deck.
  • Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Door of Destinies, on the other hand, absolutely belong in here. Door is one of the strongest cards tribal-aggro decks have in the format, and Purphoros is excellent in any deck looking to swarm the board.

Some other suggestions:- Bojuka Bog- Blade of the Bloodchief- Bloodcrazed Paladin- Vanquisher's Banner- Anointed Procession- Vampire Nocturnus (maybe)- Path to Exile

In any case, hope this helps! Good luck!

I don't think two instances of madness is enough to justify 6 discard outlets. Heir of Falkenrath  Flip could be Vampire Nighthawk and Call the Bloodline could be Gifted Aetherborn, and you'd probably create more tempo that way. All in all, I don't even think red is necessary if you're not going to use Falkenrath Gorger, Olivia Voldaren, etc. Vampire Lacerator, Kalastria Highborn, Sangromancer, and Gatekeeper of Malakir are some potential alternatives to Stromkirk Captain and Stensia Masquerade. Urge to Feed and Feast of Blood might be replacements for Lightning Bolt and Stensia Banquet. Or if you needed the burn to go face, maybe try Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire.

The thing about Modern is unless you're playing a monocolored deck you can't really get away with using all basic lands and expect good results. If you have anything resembling a budget, the place I recommend starting is finding the cheapest fetch lands in your colors, possibly trading up, and getting ahold of a set of the fast lands and shock lands. In plain terms you'd at least want 4 each of Bloodstained Mire, Blackcleave Cliffs and Blood Crypt. In interest of working on a budget I'll mention Dragonskull Summit isn't the best dual land but it did just get reprinted. Yes... Modern unfortunately has a pretty steep buy-in, mostly in lands, but once you have them they'll be used in many, many future projects.

Now... Where to start with your card choices? I understand and can very much see this is a work in progress, so I'll just be honest with you and say most of these are just... kinda bad, no offense.

Okay, I'll list off some better choices with synergy: you have Falkenrath Gorger. That's a step in the right direction. Next up I'd take a look at the following cards: Stromkirk Condemned, Stromkirk Captain. These two plus Gorger lets your guys get huge fast and makes them significantly harder to kill in combat, especially since off of Gorger you can flash in Captain as you're attacking so your Gorger and Condemned are suddenly a pair of 4 power first strike fatties on turn 3. The next two are Bloodghast and Asylum Visitor. Both are good discard options with or without Gorger and Visitor is 3 power for 2 CMC, and also a pseudo Dark Confidant if you play her correctly. Almost literally everything this deck could want in a 2 drop. The next two are beaters that function as discard outlets to keep the flow of your deck running steady: Heir of Falkenrath and Smuggler's Copter. Yes, a vehicle. I recommend Heir to anyone who can't afford Liliana of the Veil. It's a cheaper and much more aggressive way to discard, besides being a 2 mana version of Delver of Secrets for vamps.

Those enchantments are terrible. Call the Bloodline is my pick for the worst vampire support card in existence that's not Feast of Blood (that card is all kinds of terrible). For your noncreatures, it's your call in regard to draw spells but I'd only keep Faithless Looting at most. For removal, you want mostly generic stuff. Try and trade for a set of Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt and Terminate, then mix/match them as your meta dictates. Kolaghan's Command if you can get one might be useful as a one-of. It's not a great card but for flavor/support you can play around with Urge to Feed as well.

After all is said and done, with any space you have left, you can try to squeeze in as many Vampire Nocturnus, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, or Olivia, Mobilized for War as you want. I like the idea of a one-of Captivating Vampire if most of your guys are small. You could main or even side Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Olivia Voldaren, both of which are strong enough to side or sometimes main in non-vampire meta decks. Kalastria Highborn or Viscera Seer can be okay insurance cards if you're fearing a boardwipe.

I think the most important thing I'll tell you here is that too many discard outlets is bad. Don't fret too much about madness or not, you have gorger, and if you can save up for bloodghast/visitor you should be fine. You don't wanna be casting your killspells at sorcery speed too often. This is why if you can only take one Bolt is better than Fiery Temper.

Perhaps,

1-drop: Stromkirk Noble, Vampire Lacerator, Vicious Conquistador, as well as Falkenrath Gorger

2-drop: Blood Artist, Bloodghast, along with all the others?
