Gifted Aetherborn Discussion

Argy on Kill 'em All

Control decks generally only run and handful of Creatures and Planeswalkers.

This deck feels like it has too many of both types, to me.

You need a whole more cards that kill Opponent Creatures in the early game. You only have 16, and two of those are draw cards.

That is the other problem - you have no mechanic that lets you keep drawing cards in the mid to late game, so your hand is often empty at those stages.

A card like Key to the City might help.

I would remove Gifted Aetherborn and bring in 2x Fatal Push and 2x Key to the City, for a start.

See how that tests, then adjust from there.

NOTE: You can activate Key to the City on your Opponent's End Step by targetting one of their Creatures, if you don't have any on the field.

You should consider adding Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn, Serene Steward and Authority of the Consuls, one of the best lifegain cards out there, and can make pretty damn good combo with that Serene's ability :)

Hi! Since you play aggressively, i suggest you to reduce the mana curve, maybe replacing some 3-4 drop with a playset of Gifted Aetherborn. Then, thanks to your manabase, i would consider a mix of Victim of Night and Go for the Throat over Doom Blade because they hit more targets (Namely Death's Shadow and Tasigur, the Golden Fang). Talking about sideboard, i suggest you to put in a pair of Duress to use with IOK against combo and some graveyard hate like Nihil Spellbomb or Relic of Progenitus. But it really depends by your meta, so...

i hope i have been of some help.

Nice list/description! I've been a big fan of vampires ever since I built my first commander Olivia Voldaren, so now I'm rebuilding that deck into Edgar Markov!

So first, I suggest that you choose whether you want to build this as either 1. control & lifegain OR 2. aggro / vampire tribal because I personally think Edgar is good for a aggro tribal theme, but Licia, sanguine Tribune is actually better for a control/lifegain or even voltron build.

I think you have more lifegain stuff so I focus on that build and suggest cards that I think might want to remove for more control/removal or your combo win strategy:

Blood Baron of Vizkopa - this guy just seems hard to turn on for him to be revelant, but I've never played with him before!

Gifted Aetherborn - while he is basically Vampire Groundhawk, there might be better 2 drops

Guul Draz Assassin - he's usually pretty underwhelming in commander/takes a lot of mana to level up and be useful

Mirri the Cursed - maybe better for a more aggro build? Even I haven't included her in my list

Yahenni, Undying Partisan - kinda same as Mirri

Crackling Doom - depending on playgroup, this could be underwhelming. I'd prefer a wrath or more removal like Anguished Unmaking/Utter End

Blood Mist & Nahiri's Machinations - more of voltron cards? Not sure..

Brave the Sands - also not sure how great this would be in commander, probably depends on your playgroup

Curse of Disturbance - make vampires not zombies! lol

Just some ideas, I hope it helps! Feel free to check out and comment on my Edgar deck too!

Wadap storm, thank you for the reply!

I thought very long about including Exquisite Blood. Its beyond powerful but I just dont like using it. Its another 5 drop doesnt do anything to the board state or help your vamps and is basically only used for the infinite combo.

As for Gifted Aetherborn, its an amazing card. Little hard to play on turn 2 because of the double black. I dont think I got room for him since im happy with how my 2drops are atm.

I can't wait to use Shadow Alley Denizen. It comes with a 1/1 vampire and every vampire you play nets you a free black 1/1 vampire, so thats even more intimidate triggers.

Might I suggest adding Exquisite Blood since it combos with Sanguine Bond (Also with Defiant Bloodlord if you are willing to add that card.)

I'm also a big fan of Gifted Aetherborn aka. Vampire Groundhawk.

Your deck looks, I will probably build my deck similar to your's.

Man, I'm so happy i decided against building a Olivia Voldaren deck at the beginning of this summer when Edgar was Spoiled
