Geth's Verdict Discussion

I would reduce the amount of Blazing Volleys, and Smash to Smithereenss to add a couple of Duresss to your sideboard. And why not use Geth's Verdict instead of Diabolic Edict? yes it's casting cost is but it makes your opponent lose 1 life.

Dangerwillrobinson79 I do really like the Gifted Aetherborn swap. The original concept of the deck was to have every single creature be a flyer to maintain evasion at every point of the curve to maximize the impact of the equipment. Tormented Soul is an exception, as his unblockability allows him to carry your equipment straight through enemy lines unhindered. I still think evasion is important, but Aetherborn is so good, he would definitely be worth the swap if you wanted. I would probably swap him in for the Tormented Soul if I wanted to make the deck slightly more defensive, maybe against another aggro or stompy deck, where having an extra blocker with deathtouch would make a bigger impact than an unblockable that can't block.

Also, unrelated to that suggestion, just a general note: since swapping in Geth's Verdict and changing Doomblade to Go for the Throat, this deck plays a much stronger midrange game and can hold up against more deliberate tempo/control-y decks (unless they're creatureless, then you just need to go aggro and pray for a good curve). So, in those situations, don't be afraid to save mana for your control cards instead of throwing down more creatures and equipment. Gurmag Swiftwing can wait to get his Grafted Wargear next turn!

Okay, some thoughts:Sinkhole was never printed as a Common on MTGO, so outside of places that will let you play things banned online in paper tournaments (and therefore also Hymn to Tourach, which I would play in a hot second), it is not legal.

How do you deal with aggro decks that go wide or have hexproof? IMO, you need to address it either with a sweeper main or cheap deathtouch creatures plus some main deck edicts. Since you are already on the burn plan, 2-3 main deck Geth's Verdict seem perfect. Again, since you are on burn, maybe 2

I'm guessing most of your wincon is burn? I would consider Rancid Earth over Icequake. Once you hit Threshold, it is 1 damage to all creatures (mini-sweeper) and 1 damage to each player.

I think this is a deck that makes a really good case for Thermo-Alchemist, though if you do that you might want to add 4 Duress and drop the Rats. Phyrexian Rager as a 2-of seems less good than 2 Gurmag Angler.

I like the design though. It is a burnier version of my build.

Geth's Verdict perhaps?

Blood Artist is one of the best vampires ever printed! Id recommend 4 of them

Bloodghast is an early game attacker that seldom dies for long and is a late game BEAST

Blade of the Bloodchief at least 2 of these is essential for competitive vampires

Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Kalastria Highborn are cheap in mana yet very potent threats even in modern

Gatekeeper of Malakir vampire Geth's Verdict on a stick!

Olivia, Mobilized for War haste outlet

Bump in the Night, Lava Spike with flashback

Pulse TrackerShadow Alley DenizenVampire CutthroatVampire Lacerator are all relevant turn 1 vampires

Lastly, Vampire Nocturnus is a SCARY finisher if not removed by your opponent


Cavern of Souls no more countering vamps

Vampire Hexmage kills planeswalkers, Arcbound Ravager and many more

Fatal Push kill spell

Blood Moon mess with opponents lands

Relic of Progenitus/Tormod's Crypt/Leyline of the Void graveyard hate

Shatterstorm/Shattering Spree artifact/affinity hate

Rain of Gore anti-lifegain

Inquisition of Kozilek/Surgical Extraction to hit combo pieces

+1 from me! I used to run modern vamps and rhe creature base looks similar, just took it out of storage to look for suggestions on what you dont already run :)

In terms of going against a creature based opponent then yeah seems legit however if facing an opponent with little to no creatures/they have little to do with their win condition then a lot of that removal may be dead in your hand... things like Necrogen Mists or Smallpox/Surgical Extraction and Sign in Blood are something to think about .. but in terms of just talking about the removal you have you might want to consider more efficient spells for a "board wipe effect" such as Languish or Mutilate which are both suitable poor mans versions of Damnation (which apparrently is 30 bucks cheaper than it used to be) and they also get around effects that make a creature have shroud/hexproof and even indestructibility.... the thing i dont like about "target player sacrifices a creature" effects like seen with Geth's Verdict is the fact that the will choose the least important/threatening creature to you.

i also dont under stand the synergery with the AHK enchantments.... explain?

Geth's Verdict over Devour Flesh in the sb if your mana can handle it. Also maybe Crucible of Worlds and Death Cloud.
