Raremeeet on Returning player looking for optimization ...

3 months ago

Hey guys I'm new to the forum and returning to Magic from a long break. The last set that came out before I gave it up was the Urzas set.

Anyways, out of boredom I started playing magic duels on my Xbox and then reconnected with some of my old friends who still play magic. I'd like to get a paper version of the my favorite deck from duels but am so out of touch with the game I'm not even sure what's out there. The format is pretty casual, but from what I can tell most of the decks my friends use would likely fall into modern format, but there are also some really old cards too, so im pretty flexible as far as sets I can use. Lastly I'd like to keep this fairly budget, I like the game but am not sure I'm ready to sink real money into it yet... and yes I realize that means the the liliana in the deck list has to come out.

The main thing I like about this deck is the interaction between the ruthless snipers, the various discard enablers and the madness mechanic. So I'm hoping you all could make some suggestions to take further advantage of that. I realize some cards in there aren't great but they're what i have available on the video game.

2 Cryptbreaker, 3 Ruthless Sniper, 2 Sanitarium Skeleton, 2 Lightning Axe, 3 Furyblade Vampire, 2 Call the Bloodline, 2 Macabre Waltz, 1 avacyn's judgement, 2 Distemper of the Blood, 3 Bloodmad Vampire, 1 Olivia, Mobilized for War, 4 firey temper , 1 Liliana, the Last Hope, 1 Avaricious Dragon, 2 Bloodhall Priest, 2 Merciless Javelineer, 1 Biting Rain, 1 Cut / Ribbons, 2 Horror of the Broken Lands, 1 Incorrigible Youth,

9 swamp, 9 mountain, 2 Dragonskull Summit, 2 Geier Reach Sanitarium,

Madness vampires are one of my favorite decks, but let me give you a few suggestions. Bloodhall Priest was always less impactful than I wanted her to be when I first had her in this deck, I instead replaced her with Falkenrath Aristocrat, who has won me countless games since. Also, Falkenrath Gorger is definitely a card you should consider having 4 of in your deck. Its never not useful. Heir of Falkenrath  Flip is another card to consider. Shes one of my favorite vamps in the deck, and doesnt cause you to fizzle our as quickly as Furyblade Vampire, who requires a discard every turn. Heir has also won me many games. Stensia Masquerade is another card I had in my original deck but never proved as useful as just having more Stromkirk captains. They provide more bodies and an immediate boost in power to our other vampires. Lastly, at least in my meta, Lightning Axe and Dark Withering proved far more useful to have more of in this deck than Alms of the Vein, which is best against burn type decks. Also checkout Big Game Hunter for sideboard options. Hes a lot of fun.

Personal note: in addition to Falkenrath Aristocrat I added Bloodsoaked Champion to provide a sac outlet for her. Hes also an easy discard who you can play later on anyways.

Hope you find my thoughts useful and happy blood sucking!

Pheardemons, thank you so much for your feedback!! Your suggestions really help me out. The deck is budget for now, but I definitely wanna work towards its final form eventually.

If I play board wipes (which I definitely wanna do), I'd wanna keep Boros Charm just so that I can keep my side of the board intact. I think Sweltering Suns is perfect for this deck, as well as Collective Brutality (thanks 22edinkel!).

I think I'll be taking out Furyblade Vampire, Stern Constable, and maybe one or two Tidehollow Sculler for the cards you suggested. Essentially this deck is turning into mardu control with Master of Cruelties as the main win-con. However I would love cards that synergize with Alesha, Who Smiles at Death, which is why I have Gonti, Lord of Luxury in the deck, in case I don't have Master of Cruelties out I can bring him back and deal some deathtouch damage and have fun with my opponents spells.

Either way, I will work something out to make this deck really nasty, thank you again for your help!!

I understand that you wawnt to discard, but I think cards like Faithless Looting will allow you to utilize that better. Plus, you also have Key to the City which helps as well. I'd actually recommend YOU playing some board wipes. Going wide seems like it would kind of hurt this deck. I think you should try to capitalize on your main win condition as much as possible. Wipes like Anger of the Gods (the exile effect I understand can hurt you) or Sweltering Suns so you can cycle if you don't need it. Then, you can use the targeted single creature destruction spells if they play anything on the back swing. I second Generator Servant because all of a sudden your opponent HAS to deal with a hasty Alesha, Who Smiles at Death or a hasty Master of Cruelties which can always be a problem for anyone.

Stern Constable, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Furyblade Vampireand Tidehollow Sculler I think should be take out for Faithless Looting, and some mainboard Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize. I also believe Boros Charm could come out, although I do recognize the synergy. I think Glorious End should be able to be a one of mainboard. Just in case.

I second the notion to get Fetch lands (Bloodstained Mire, Marsh Flats, and Arid Mesa) and shocklands (Blood Crypt, Godless Shrine, and Sacred Foundry) as to fix your colors early. However, if you don't want to, Blood Moon could be a decent alternative here to take your opponents off colors and stall them until you get to do what you want to do. You can also play Blood Moon with the fetches and shocks, you just need to be more mindful that you get a correct mana base before playing it cause it could hinder you as well.

Because you're in black, another great targeted removal spell is Fatal Push. Definitely look into that.

Your sideboard needs serious work. You need cards to help against Jund, Death's Shadow, control, affinity, ect. If you take my advice on some of the cards above, then you already have some help with them (Death's Shadow cries at Fatal Push, Hand disruption helps against almost any deck, ect). I think you should look into a sideboard that is similar to this

3X Fatal Push3X Leyline of Sanctity2X Disenchant1X Shatterstorm1x By Force2x Thoughtseize2x Nihil Spellbomb1x Blood Moon

This sideboard has some assumptions. 1) You are playing some mainboard Blood Moons. If you're not then I'd recommend having more in the sideboard. At the very least Stone Rain, Molten Rain, or Crumble to Dust. These are against tron, which is greatly needed. Karn Liberated is hard to face down with a midrange style deck that can't take him out of the hand early, or have haste cards to hit him fast. Only two Thoughtseize with the assumption that Inquisition of Kozilek will be put mainboard. There are two extra for those fast combo decks, or big mana decks (tron) to consistently take the threat out of their hand before you have to deal with it. Fatal Push is there assuming you're not going to put it in mainboard because you don't play fetches. If you're not going to get fetches at all, then maybe up the Path to Exile count.

Leyline of Sanctity is there for decks like Ad Nauseam, Burn, other hand disruption type decks, ect. Nihil Spellbomb is graveyard hate for Tarmogoyf, control decks, dredge, ect. Shatterstorm, By Force, and Disenchants are there for artifact hate, with some enchantment hate as well. Affinity is still running around, and Lantern control is such a bitch to fight against.

Hope this helps.

Thank you so much for your feedback MrSilk!!

All of those cards go great with my game plan, especially Wrath of God.

The problem I am having is that I don't know which cards to take out; all of these cards synergize so well with each other. I was thinking about taking out Furyblade Vampire for Generator Servant but I'm not sure. I need discard effects to fully utilize the deck so I don't wanna take out too much.

Do you have any suggestions?

darmpark on The 'Good' Type of Suck

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 R/W we have more combat oriented cards, but usually with a more defensive twist. Things like Glory of Warfare or Boros Charm. Things that help you protec but also attac.

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...

Other cards to consider:

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:

-2 Refurbish

-1 Tormenting Voice

-1 Lightning Axe

-2 Marionette Master

+3 Cryptbreaker

+3 Furyblade Vampire

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!
