- Dealing with indestructible creatures in standard
- Does removal stop crewing?
- Can I play Grasp of Darkness in response to them playing a pump spell?
- If I have Eldrazi Mimic in play and play another colorless creature and in response to the trigger my opponent casts Grasp of Darkness and remove the target, will the mimic die?
- Is Priority maintained between after my draw step and beginning of my first main phase?

Grasp of Darkness Discussion

Marcus_Licinius_Crassus the reason i didn't play fatal push is because i wanted some more control against creatures with higher power like a 4/4 and that gives me the option for Disfigure or Grasp of Darkness.i will add Beseech the Queen and Gifted Aetherborn to the deck.thx for the suggestions.

My friend has been running essentially the same list of Vampires since OG Zendikar through Innistrad, with a couple additions from Ixalan. Based on how difficult the deck is to beat, there's definitely some recommendations I can make.
A couple Blade of the Bloodchief gets absolutely backbreaking. Slap one on an Aetherborn or Nighthawk and you'll see.
Viscera Seer is a fantastic 1-drop; free sac outlet and top deck fixing through scry. Pseudo-card advantage.

Mmmm.... why play Unclaimed Territory in a monocolored deck with different creature types?
Black Knight seems random. Could be Geralf's Messenger (for resilience to removal), could be Gatekeeper of Malakir (for removal with legs), could be Vampire Nighthawk (for lifegain and deterring attackers)... or something else.
Do you have a plan for flipping Chalice of Life Flip? Or is it just there to give you 1 life every turn? This might seem a bit abstract, but the lifegain from Duress could be a good bit better than either of the lifegain cards you're using, simply because it might remove a card from your opponents hand, that will cost you a lot more life than the lifegainers will give in any game where they don't come down right away. Or you could play Tendrils of Corruption in place of some of your removal, for even more swamps-matter, removal, and lifegain (in one bundle).

I only started back with Journey into Nyx, and so I would happen to say Oath, of the gatewatch and Eldritch Moon were my favorite sets.
Getting to play with cards like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Reality Smasher, Thought-Knot Seer, Bearer of Silence, Grasp of Darkness, Shrine of the Forsaken Gods and Oblivion Sower (bfz) and others were a lot of fun in this midrange mono black eldrazi deck I use to play for standard.
Eldritch Moon I got to build my most competitive (and expensive) to date standard deck around Delirium, featuring my foil Emrakul, the Promised End I had from a prelease kit, Traverse the Ulvenwald to search up things like Ishkanah, Grafwidow, Noxious Gearhulk, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet usually if not Emrakul. It was my first time playing a graveyard centric deck, with a lot of synergy, and overall it was the most fun I had with a standard deck since I started standard close to the end of Khans block being about to rotate. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet I would say is one of my favorite mythics of all time, I played the card from shortly after the time it was printed to the very day it rotated.

Thank you for the suggestions to the deck! I really like Diregraf Ghoul as a strictly better replacement for the Vampire Lacerator. I am going to pick some up and swap them out. I also like the other removal suggested in case Grasp of Darkness does not cut it in game 1.
Thanks again and I will add that stuff in the side and maybe boards.
