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.)

Try using Blood Moons instead of Damping Spheres in your sideboard. Also, maybe try to go for some more removal such as Dreadbore and Hero's Downfall. And for a bit of synergies maybe throw in some Falkenrath Gorgers and Collective Brutalitys. This isn’t me demanding this, it is just a suggestion to make this specific deck a bit more entertaining and look more scary. For a reference look at my personal vampire modern deck Vampire Bloodlust. Thanks for listening m8!

Personally, to start, you’ll want to drop out Blood Artist, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, and the Bloodline Keeper  Flip. After taking these out, you can look at some decent 1/3/4 drops for a Rakdos vampire deck. These include; Falkenrath Gorger, Vampire Lacerator, Captivating Vampire, and Vampire Nocturnus. All of these will prove to increase the power in your creature section. For your manabase, all I can say is it appears that you are budgeting it right now. If you get the time or money, try out maybe Blood Crypt. You already have the right idea with the Foreboding Ruins. And lastly, removal in a Rakdos deck is key. Personally, I’d swap out those Terminate’s with Dreadbores, and maybe the Lightning Bolts out for something like Fatal Push. I will admit, however, that your current brew looks very similar to my first brew. So I will say now, you are definitely on the right track. P.S. try swapping out Vampire Nighthawk with some Bloodghasts.

With Hero's Downfall handling the Creature/ Planeswalker avenue, I'd strongly consider Terminate in the place of Dreadbore. I myself prefer instant speed myself and as a 7-8 year player of vamps that's just my experience.

I would cut 1 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for 1 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

I would change Falkenrath Gorger but as you seem keen on keeping it, carry on. I would strongly consider putting in 1 or 2 Drana, Liberator of Malakir. Her first strike deals combat damage first, boosting other Vampire's damage when they deal normal damage. It gets pretty ridiculous.

Vampire Hexmage in sideboard for when facing Planeswalkers and jiving with Vampire Nocturnus.

The Falkenrath Gorger is there because he can provide decent power on turn one, plus he synergizes well with the Collective Brutality’s ability. This all allowing good early game attacks, and mid-range use of the discarded cards going into madness and being cast from exile.

Firstly, it doesn’t look like you have enougb discard effects for Falkenrath Gorger to be worth running. It’s a 1 drop which is nice but unless you put more discard effects in here I don’t think it’s worth the card slot.

Also, Door of Destinies may be worth replacing. I’ve used it in my own Edgar Markov deck and yes it can be amazing in the right situation, but for it to do work you have to get it early and you have to have gas once it hits the field. It costs 4 mana and does nothing for you immediately on coming into play and it’s a terrible thing to draw late in the game. I would recommend replacing it with something like Vanquisher's Banner, which immediately helps you and gives you card draw, which decks like this have problems with.

Speaking of card draw, you probably need more of it. While cards like Read the Bones and Skeletal Scrying are nice, they aren’t as good in this deck as something like Champion of Dusk or Twilight Prophet. You already have Phyrexian Arena and Necropotence, which both help immensely, but more card draw is probably necessary.

Another card that’s very good here is Herald's Horn. It makes your vampires cheaper, which is very nice, but in addition to that it also gives you a form of pseudo-card draw.

Some non-vampire creatures that can be incredibly helpful are Purphoros, God of the Forge, Iroas, God of Victory and Athreos, God of Passage. Purphoros and Iroas will most likely not transform into creatures since the deck is heavily black which makes them even more difficult to remove. Purphoros deals 4 damage to all of your opponents every time you play a vampire and Iroas makes attacking almost completely safe, as well as giving your army a form of evasion. Athreos isn’t quite as good as the others, but his ability to return stuff to your hand can be incredibly helpful. Often your opponents either don’t want to or just can’t pay the 3 life to keep your stuff dead so you can just keep bringing it back over and over again. Also, a 5/4 indestructible for 3 mana is definitely not bad.

A couple other cards you might want to consider are Boros Charm for some boardwipe protection and Radiant Destiny as another anthem spell that also gives your creatures vigilance.

These are just some suggestions I had for your deck based on my own experience with Edgar Markov. My deck is Edgar Markov tokens if you’re interested, you may find some other cards you want in there and maybe get some new ideas for your deck.

Why not Olivia, Mobilized for War with help from a little madness in Falkenrath Gorger?

To consider:

Rampaging Ferocidon; Ahn-Crop Crasher ; Pia Nalaar would be better top curve. Chandra Phenix is a little to cute and doesn't add that much utility or deep to the deck.I would also add more one drop, Bomat Courier (It's a bit expensive, but his price should drop when he rotate out of standard) Falkenrath Gorger; Village Messenger  Flip and Stromkirk Noble would had a vampire theme wich would reward you if you manage to clear the board for an attack.And Falkenrath Exterminator would be a nice two drop who add some reach

Ramunap Ruins Package with Sunscorched Desert wich "improve" a lot your mana base

+1 for B/R vampires (one of my favorite builds!)

I have a version, Succumb to Madness if you want any ideas. I would say max out on the best ones like Stromkirk Captain Gifted Aetherborn and definitely Bloodghast if you have the money. First strike deathtouch is sooooooooooo good and B/R vampires do it the best I believe.

I really like Falkenrath Gorger Asylum Visitor and Stromkirk Condemned if you are interested in a madness route.

Personally, replace Guul Draz Vampire with Vampire Lacerator. Personally, you dont want the game dragging long (not past 6-8 turns) and you can take the damage from Vampire Lacerator if you have lifegain through Gifted Aetherborn and Vampire Nighthawk.

Best of luck on the build!
