Forerunner of the Legion

Creature — Vampire Knight

When Forerunner of the Legion enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a Vampire card, reveal it, then shuffle your library and put that card on top of it.

Whenever another Vampire enters the battlefield under your control, target creature gets +1/+1 until end of turn.

You should had a Forerunner of the Legion so you can go fetch some vampire and a Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle so you put even more token on the board

If you decide to go Marbu with Vampire Nocturnus I would recommend using a few Forerunner of the Legion to help keep black on top of your deck and get the vampires you need. And if you use them, you don't need as many of any given vampire in your deck.

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.

Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.

Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:

You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.

Shared Animosity and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are two expensive price, but powerful cards with Vamps and Edgar.


Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.

Good luck with your deck.

I hear you Quadsimotto,

I am still not convinced that Sphinx of Foresight adds much value. Forerunner of the Legion could be useful to find your Paladin. I have Deputy of Detention as a side-board card, allowing me to play more counter-spells main-board. This deck is, however, new for me and I suppose that I will learn more as I begin to play it.

Adamant Will or Sheltering Light might just work out better than On Serra's Wings . Forerunner of the Legion is great and most people with similar decks seem to have missed it. See what you think of Endless hunger M

Hey, saw that you're looking for help.

In my opinion the Vampiric Bloodlust precon doesn't showcase Edgar's best ability which is eminence from the Command Zone. You want to take advantage of this with low mana cost Vampires, mostly one/two/three drops. With eminence you want to swarm the board fast with Vampires because each low mana cost Vamp you cast gives you 1/1 Vamp token. Eminence lets you establish an army of Vamps much faster if you're casting one and two drop Vamps.

I'm suggesting for you to consider completely changing the strategy of your deck? Reduce the avg. CMC which is currently high at 3.7, make it so you can play a lot more Vamps faster. Use Sanctum Seeker , Malakir Bloodwitch and Edgar as the top end Vampires and cut most of the rest. These three benefit a lot, can do a ton of damage with big armies of Vamps. For upgrades to the precon consider starting by add all the good one drop and two drop budget Vamps?

Budget Vamps ($2 or less each) to consider adding:

Can add all these cards for about $11.


In all Commander deck builds lands that can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped should be priority. Don't be afraid of including more basic lands instead of lands that ETB tapped. Budget lands to consider:

Can add all these lands for about $17.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Can add the rest of these cards for about $12. Total price of suggested upgrades is about $40.


I'm suggesting to make a lot of changes by cutting a large number of high mana cost cards replacing them with low mana cost cards especially Vampires. Except the lands most of the cards I'm suggesting to cut are good cards, but most have high mana costs. Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Boros Guildgate
  • Akoum Refuge
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Stone Quarry
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Kabira Crossroads
  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Cinder Barrens
  • Anowon, the Ruin Sage
  • Blood Baron of Vizkopa
  • Bloodline Necromancer
  • Bloodsworn Steward
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Crimson Honor Guard
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Heir of Falkenrath
  • Licia, Sanguine Tribune
  • Mathas, Fiend Seeker
  • Olivia Voldaren
  • Patron of the Vein
  • Sangromancer
  • Skeletal Vampire
  • Skymarch Bloodletter
  • Vein Drinker
  • Black Market
  • Kindred Boon
  • Alms of the Vein
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Blood Divination
  • Consuming Vapors
  • Kindred Charge
  • Syphon Mind
  • Fell the Mighty
  • Well of Lost Dreams
  • Worn Powerstone

If you like these suggestions, or have any questions I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.


saveen1 on vampire sorcerer infinite combo

3 months ago

Off to a slow start in my Arena plays.

There are three main points to the deck:

  1. the combo (paladin, wand, lifelink). Forerunner of the Legion and Deadeye Quartermaster help to get this

  2. DRAW. find the combo. Sprite helps here. Siren helps too when enchanted with curious obsession. I go back and forth with Anticipate and Shimmer of Possibility . I like anticipate's instant speed, but we can dig one deeper with shimmer.

  3. Keep the Paladin alive! at 3 toughness, he dies quick. Sirens and Dive Down save the day.

I can usually get the combo within 7 turns. It's got about a 50/50 win rate so far. It sucks against burn decks that can kill you in 5 turns, and black cards that make you sac creatures. A good sideboard would contain Spell Pierce and Negate .
