Gifted Aetherborn

Creature — Aetherborn Vampire

Deathtouch, lifelink

Gifted Aetherborn Discussion

JuQ on A Caress of Steel

5 hours ago

Deathtouch works wonderfully together with trample (you only need to asign 1 point of damage to the defender and trample the rest), so cards like Overrun would be a nice finisher in the deck. Revenge of the Hunted is a nice alternative/redundancy to Destined / Lead

Frist strike and deathtouch is also a broken combination: Glissa, the Traitor is absolutely badass because he already has the combo on herself and her triggered will help you retrieve some of your important artifacts. Equipments that give you first strike are also a good choice Chariot of Victory , Bladed Pinions , Sword of Vengeance ...

Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Pharika, God of Affliction create more deathtouchers. Hapatra may need some help to get through, but Pharika is pretty good on her own, your deck already has a lot of creatures, and it can be used also as graveyard hate if needed.

Acidic Slime , Liliana's Reaver , Gifted Aetherborn , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Skullwinder , Vengeful Pharaoh and The Gitrog Monster are some other of my favourite deathtouchers.

Hey, nice midrange version, but consider some more one/two drop Vamps who can fit in with a midrange strategy? Two of them are in the maybeboard.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Voldaren Pariah
  • Deathbringer Liege
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
  • Tithe Drinker

Midrange benefits from a good three drop consider more three drops? Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a good three drop Vamp, flying and pumps your attacking team of Vamps. Forerunner of the Legion is a three drop Vamp tutor and it's other ability is also good with eminence. Shared Animosity has a powerful repeatable effect for attacking Vamps. Painful Truths is a draw spell upgrade. Read the Bones is another draw spell upgrade.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Damnable Pact
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Teysa Karlov
  • Elenda, the Dusk Rose
  • Requiem Angel

Swords to Plowshares is handy efficient exile creature removal, a staple card of Commander. Boros Charm can at instant speed save your Vamp army from most board wipes and it's other modes are also relevant. The Talismans: Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Indulgence are upgrades for the Signets because Talismans can be used the turn you play them to make mana (colorless or colored) without needing another mana source.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Sangromancer
  • Kheru Bloodsucker
  • Rakdos Signet
  • Boros Signet
  • Orzhov Signet

Lands to consider adding:

Lands to cut for these:

  • Stone Quarry
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • 3x Plains
  • 1x Mountain

Ripwater on Queen Marchesa: Politics, Aikido, and Control

precociousapprentice, ah okay. Don't get me wrong, but is winning with that combo any different than helm + Leyline? I admire your decision to make the deck in a more aikido way, it's the spirit of the deck. But it still feels like you are forced to deal with a very competitive meta and thus playing these kinda (in my opinion) a bit cheap combo's and in no way in the aikido spirit you claim trying to go back to.

I've played I think over 30 games (a lot less then you have ofcourse) with your old build and I agree with your opinion about the previous build. I also often had the feeling we played more stax and too much big flashy things. But at least Gisela, Blade of Goldnight did exactly what we want to do, use our opponents power against each other AND serving as a wincon.

Also cards like Comeuppance already won me games, of in worst case scenario set my opponent a lot back. Where you choose to ignore these, in my opinion again, very good and thematic cards for the deck.

And things like Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder , Gifted Aetherborn or Serra Ascendant in what way to these add to the spirit off the deck? Putting those in while taking out Master of Cruelties for example? Also wouldnt Duelist's Heritage not be a better option for bruce? And also more in line of the deck? And card's like Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker ?

Yes, they are maybe less competitive, or at least more expensive to put down. But again I kinda have the feeling you are maybe in a very competitive meta.

Dualcaster Mage is something I'm still curious about as well... I love the Reverberate effect's. To the point where I run Fork , Reverberate and Reiterate (the buyback is worth it)

Also Rebuff the Wicked has proven very very valuable for me, when they try to go after your Sunforger

Again I'm in no way trying to bash on your choices or making fun of them. If it comes out like that, then I am sorry in advance. I'm just trying to have a healthy discussion with you :)

Another question, how do you deal with people smacking you in your face either way? I had moments where I really tried to lay low. Only having marchesa out (sometimes I was the monarch, sometimes I wasn't). But then still people tend to attack me for no reason what so ever. Or even worse take Marchesa out, leaving me basically open.

TheVectornaut on A MonoBlack (Need Suggestions)

By using your own spells to kill off a Gray Merchant of Asphodel just to reanimate him, you'll be giving up a ton of card advantage and losing tempo. If you're really interested in abusing the Merchant's ability by getting it to trigger multiple times, I'd consider running blue for bounce effects like Unsummon , or better yet, white for flicker like Cloudshift . You could also set up a Panharmonicon to double the trigger automatically. However, there really isn't any need to do so. The better option is to just invest in the mono-black devotion plan enough that Gray Merchant will kill in one hit. I recommend looking up black devotion lists to get an idea of cards to add. I've had a lot of fun with a devotion zoo deck using 1 drops like Gravecrawler , Gutterbones , and Bloodsoaked Champion with Midnight Oil and Phyrexian Arena to refill. In general, you just want to include the most black mana symbols for the lowest cost (while also bearing card power level in mind). Vampire Nighthawk and Despoiler of Souls are two cards you already have that fit the bill. Some other favorites are Gatekeeper of Malakir , Phyrexian Obliterator , Gifted Aetherborn , Dread Shade , and Geralf's Messenger . These decks can be a little pricey, especially if you include a set of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . If you're looking for a more gradual form of life drain, Orzhov lists are a popular way to do so. They run cards more in the vein of Obzedat, Ghost Council , Wall of Limbs , and Kambal, Consul of Allocation . They might also take advantage of lifegain with Ajani's Pridemate , Felidar Sovereign , or the Sanguine Bond / Exquisite Blood combo. One of the reasons these decks are so popular is that they can easily be built on a budget. As a final note, I'd like to point out that you're currently lacking the mana needed for the curve you have. I'd want at least 20 lands here and maybe as many as 25 to avoid constant mana screw. Good luck with your build!

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of brew cards for mono black in modern.

For lifelink vamps, Indulgent Aristocrat , Gifted Aetherborn , Vampire Nighthawk , Call the Bloodline and Vampire Cutthroat should make up the backbone of your deck.

Powerful enablers for them are cards like Blade of the Bloodchief Lashwrithe or Vampire Nocturnus / Drana, Liberator of Malakir which let you 'outsize' the majority of modern midrange. Yes, mono black can reliably eat goyfs.

Finally, you want disruption. Jam a ton of Duress variants, its what mono black does best, and stripping their removal options and card draw makes that 10/10 lifelink token you made by discarding a land and equipping lashwrithe very effective. Past that, plan your sideboard- ratchet bomb is basically mandatory as your only enchantment removal, but the rest is more standard modern fare.

multimedia on EDH - Budget Vampire Tribal

Hey, keeping your overall deck heavy black is good, the right direction, because of the low budget white and red are better as splashes mostly just for Edgar. You have about $50 to spend before you reach $100. All my card suggestions will cost half that. For the manabase consider a few more budget dual lands?

Can cut basic Mountains and Plains for these dual lands.

Most of my Vampire suggestions are one and two drop Vamps because I think you need more of them since they give you board presence faster because of eminence. The 10 budget Vampires to consider including:

Adding all these additional cards will cost about $24. This leaves another $20+ for a few higher end cards with Edgar such as Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Shared Animosity . Good luck with your deck.
