Furyblade Vampire Discussion
1 week ago
I'm a red novice myself but I'll do what I can. Red is a very fast, combat centric color. A lot of red vamps, like Bloodcrazed Neonate, Erdwal Ripper, or Falkenrath Marauders reward you for hitting your opponent's face. Since red is one half of Rakdos colors, there are also red vamps that encourage you to discard cards, like Furyblade Vampire, the above mentioned Olivia, Mobilized for War, or any of number of them with the "Madness" keyword, which lets play them for a special cost if you would normally discard them.
As for non-vamp cards to toss in, I've already discussed damage amp. Most vamps reward you for either hitting face or killing creatures, and damage amp will make both easier. Another nifty trick in red is extra combat phases with cards like Relentless Assault, Aggravated Assault, or Fury of the Horde.
In essence, Red and all its subsidiaries are all about one thing: swing. Swing hard and Swing often.
This all seems like basic info to me and I'm not sure it helps, but it's what I've got for you. I hope you get something out of it.

I recommend a slightly more aggressive approach, focusing a little more on the madness mechanic. For that, you could add Furyblade Vampire or Ravenous Bloodseeker to enable madness and Incorrigible Youths as a payoff. Further, i suggest Insolent Neonate as a better one-dropt. To not run out of steam, you can add more Tormenting Voice and 2-3 Asylum Visitor.
Things to get rid of:
- Defiant Bloodlord -> this is not primarily a lifegain deck & the mana cost are way too high.
- Zulaport Cutthroat -> only useful with mass creatures (e.g. token strategies) or sac strategies.
- Visions of Brutality -> i don't see any synergy
- Diabolic Tutor -> make your deck consistent by playing 4 of each important card and you don't need tutors. they slow you down too much.
- Pick the Brain -> sideboard
- Blood Mist -> unsure about this one. you already get first strike from Stensia Masquerade but the cards work well together. But you want more creatures. So at least go down a copy...

I playtested this list a little bit myself (which I should have done earlier) and I realized you don't really need Refurbish. So I would do:
and see how that plays out. But ultimately, at this point, it's up to you, and I'm not sure I'll be able to offer advice you couldn't get through playtesting. However, let me know how it turns out and if I can ever be a resource!

Short answer, yes. I wonder what would happen if you put in Heir of Falkenrath, Furyblade Vampire, or Bloodrage Brawler over Marionette Master. Furyblade even seems okay as a 4/4 Zombie with trample and a relevant ability.
Then, maybe you could test Cryptbreaker over some combination of Tormenting Voice? I know R mana is really important for your early game, but he would be great at any stage of the game, as either card advantage on a board full of GPG zombies, or early-game grave-filling.
Glad to hear you're enjoying the build. It's my pleasure to help out a bit. Best of luck!

add in Geier Reach Bandit Flip to replace speedway fanatic, and Kessig Forgemaster Flip to replace kari zev and this deck becomes much bigger but still retains its speed. if you remove deranged whelp and add Furyblade Vampire you would get much more synergy out of your falkenrath gorger. to push that synergy even further you could take out two shock and add Lightning Axe and/or take out built to smash and add in Fiery Temper these work really well with madness and as discard outlets. tons of turn four synergy to clear their board and boost everyone you have with bushwhacker.

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!

Furyblade Vampire would work pretty well. Discard a card every combat phase and it's gets +3/+0 while being a 2 drop.

Hi yoni24 ! Thank you for commenting on my deck, I appreciate all suggestions!
Yeah i love olivia but i'm not sure what to cut for her, bloodrage is cool but kinda mana intensive I feel that Furyblade Vampire is a fair compromise since it's basically a Bloodrage Brawler when it needs to be, but I don't have to dump a temper or something like that on turn 2 instead of taking advantage of the madness trigger
Amonkhet had some really cool cards, but i found the cards like archfiend etc to be too slow in this aggro build
