Falkenrath Gorger Discussion

I've run vampires before but they are a tricky tribe since they do have some support but not as much as other tribes. The biggest problems I've found are that the best vampires are expensive (mana and money wise) and the game is a bit grindier. So you have to be ready to play the long game but their life-gain abilities help keep you in the game.

Budget pending, I would recommend cutting out some of your weaker non-vampire creatures for the following:

Captivating Vampire
Drana, Liberator of Malakir
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
Nirkana Revenant
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Necropolis Regent
Vampire Nocturnus
Malakir Bloodwitch
Dark Impostor
Blood Artist
Markov Blademaster
Kalastria Highborn
Falkenrath Gorger
Falkenrath Aristocrat
Stromkirk Condemned
Gatekeeper of Malakir
Pawn of Ulamog

The thing to keep in mind with vampires is most tribal decks that use Olivia will be mostly Black with a bit of Red. So you need to accelerate your Black mana production more. You've got some solid mana rocks but here are a few additional ideas:

Nirkana Revenant
Crypt Ghast
Caged Sun
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers
Crypt of Agadeem

Increasing your card draw is my final recommendation. Black offers tons of ways to draw cards but I recommend Phyrexian Arena the most.

I hope this helps! Best of luck!

jaylawlerrr: I always wanted to test Collective Brutality but it's always so expensive that I don't have the courage to buy them. I got Liliana last year and she wasn't that expensive back then, and it's the most costly card on the deck. Other than that the deck is pretty budget.

When you mix in Red, the madness archetype is normally way more agressive, so cards like Alms of the Vein are pretty good. I tried it as well but it was a coin flip. As I mentioned this deck sometimes run agressive and sometimes defensive depending on game, hands, draw, etc. So I felt Alms of the Vein didn't fit too well...

I did make a casual and budget monored aggro vampires, which is Standard with just 4 copies of everything, nothing special, focusing more on creatures.

But still, I just prefer playing the black version a lot more.

Hope to hear your feedback after you test your versions!

Some combo's are:1. the ususal Falkenrath Gorger + Furyblade Vampire2. Discard engin + Avacyn's Judgment or Distemper of the Blood3. Liliana's Indignation + Rally the Ancestors

I was also thinking about Cryptbreaker but hey I'm not rich.

Anyway the manabase needs some love, but the total should stay under 50 moneys.....

I have given a lot of thought to both of them actually. Ahn-Crop Crasher is similar to Lathnu Hellion imo but worst. You have argue that Lathnu Hellion dies after 2 turns but Ahn-Crop Crasher will too in almost every situation because removal. His exert ability isn't good enough because you don't want to lose him for a turn. I do like Bloodrage Brawler, but I haven't playtested with him at all.

If I played it, my list would look as follows I think:

I would remove -2x Falkenrath Gorger, -2x Built to Smash, -4x Shock.

And instead play: +4x Bloodrage Brawler and +4x Fiery Temper.

Thanks for the discussion and interest! +1 if you like the list :)

What's everyone think about more vamps vs the artifact creatures?. 1 drop could be Falkenrath Gorger, 2 drop could be more Bloodrage Brawler's and/or Asylum Visitor, or Heir of Falkenrath. Of course then Built to Smash would need to change as well, which might slow it down a notch.

sloth.the.holy Hey man, thanks for the inquiry. You're right Falkenrath Gorger is pretty trash and his ability does nothing in most of the decks people are running him in. Unfortunately, the reason he is currently being used is solely because he's a 2/1 for . Sounds ridiculous - but in my deck for instance - I need to have a 2 power creature on turn 1 as often as possible so that on turn 2 and 3 I can hit hard with Consuming Fervor and/or Cartouche of Zeal + Falkenrath Gorger. He functions as a bad Goblin Guide and sorta on par with Zurgo Bellstriker. He's the 1 drop that you're happy to have in your hand if you have no others but is not generally your go-to if you have a variety.

As I said, he's more often than not used in conjucntion with other spells/pieces like Consuming Fervor, Built to Smash, Cartouche of Zeal.

I've seen alot of decks use Falkenrath Gorger just curious as to why? You have no discard for the effect is it just the 1 mana 2/1?
