Indulgent Aristocrat Discussion
12 hours ago
Hey, I suggest more one drop and two drop Vamps less five drop Vamps and six drops.
Consider adding (suggestions that have a (s) next them I consider staples for Edgar):
- (s)Indulgent Aristocrat
- (s)Shadow Alley Denizen
- Viscera Seer
- Vicious Conquistador
- Pulse Tracker
- Falkenrath Gorger
- (s)Legion Lieutenant
- (s)Kalastria Highborn
- Dusk Legion Zealot
- Adanto Vanguard
- Gatekeeper of Malakir
- Anowon, the Ruin Sage
- Bishop of Rebirth
- Black Market
- Bloodline Necromancer
- Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
- Cathars' Crusade
- Crimson Honor Guard
- Fell the Mighty
- Hour of Devastation
- Sanguine Bond
- Blood Tribute
These changes will drop the avg. CMC a lot, consistently more chances to get more Vamps into play before you cast Edgar. Curving out with a one drop, two drop, three drop Vamps can give you a very good aggressive board presence. These changes will help to be able to do this.
Other cards to consider adding:
- (s)Forerunner of the Legion
- (s)Sanctum Seeker
- (s)Bloodline Keeper Flip
- (s)Anguished Unmaking
- Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots
Other cards to consider cutting:
- Pawn of Ulamog
- Mathas, Fiend Seeker
- Worn Powerstone
- Kindred Boon
Good luck with your deck.

Looks good. Some suggestions for cuts: Warmth is kind of weak and can be replaced with Elenda, the Dusk Rose (when you get her), Dega Sanctuary can be replaced with Vampire Nocturnus, Arguel's Blood Fast can be replaced with Greed or even Erebos, God of the Dead. Or take the Necropotence from Rakdos and put it in here, it's better here anyways. You could replace In Garruk's Wake with Dusk, it does double duty here, giving you back a bunch of your creatures when you flash it back. If you don't like Dusk, then Kindred Dominance would work in the overcosted wipe slot too.
As for creatures, Annoited Deacon should probably come out, as well as Exulted Skymarcher, Paladin of the Bloodstained, Sadistic Skymarcher and Skymarcher Aspirant. Options to go in include Stromkirk Condemned, Bishop of Binding, Bloodline Keeper Flip, Dusk Legion Zealot, Twilight Prophet, Indulgent Aristocrat, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Mephidross Vampire, Necropolis Regent, Patron of the Vein, Shauku, Endbringer (less important than maybe other creatures), Soul Collector for giggles, Thief of Blood, Viscera Seer, Vampire Hexmage or Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter.

Hi! Here are some inexpensive cards to improve the pre-con!
For the mana base, check out this website. That'll give you all the options in your colors. It'll also tell you the artifact and ramp options! Remember, 37 lands, 10 ramp, 47 mana sources total.
Buffing Our Army: Indulgent Aristocrat(small cost for effect), Drana, Liberator of Malakir(+1/+1 counter theme, Vampire Nocturnus(only if you find yourself heavy in black), Guul Draz Overseer(again, heavy in black. run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth), Necropolis Regent(+1/+1 theme), Urge to Feed(removal, +1/+1, Eldrazi Monument(VERY important), Vanquisher's Banner(card draw!), Stensia Masquerade(+1/+1 counters), Cathars' Crusade(Important, +1/+1 counters), In the Web of War, True Conviction, Ogre Battledriver, the outlast lords Abzan Falconer / Mer-Ek Nightblade / Abzan Battle Priest, which synergize with the +1/+1 counter theme again, Elenda, the Dusk Rose(+1/+1 counter theme)

Im also trying to make a BW deck myself. Serra Avatar and Soul of Theros are really cool cards, but can only function in a commander deck since they cost so much to play. Id recommend removing them. Maybe replace them with Yahenni, Undying Partisan which benefits from the deathtouch and kill cards you have. Also, instead of Murder, I would use Mortify, since it does the same thing but also targets enchantments. Tragic Slip might also be helpful since your deck will be killing a lot of things anyways which will trigger its second ability. Youre going to want some one mana cost creatures if youre going to play this in modern. Since you have lots of vampires, I recommend Indulgent Aristocrat. He can pump up your other creatures, and has the added benefit of triggering tragic slips second ability. Lastly, for your mana base, put in a Vault of the Archangel or two. Boom, everything has deathtouch and lifelink.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions! Definitely added a few of those to the maybeboard. I'm not too interested in an infinite combo for this deck, since that's not really the speed of my playgroup. I can loop Mangara of Corondor with a sac outlet and Phyrexian Reclamation if need be, and the oodles of tokens I create are not quite infinite but definitely enough to remove any other creature from the board and any life out of opponents' totals, when combined with Dictate of Erebos and a few aristocrats.
That's basically why I didn't fully go for the vampire tribal - Edgar doesn't make quite as many tokens as other non-vampire cards do, and I wanted more of an aristocrat deck than a go wide and tall with vampires deck. The tokens very rarely attack, but Edgar/Vish Kal/Drana/Licia is plenty powerful with a Blade of the Bloodchief and Whispersilk Cloak when you sac 20 zombies, then sac 20 spirits, then swing and give lifelink while Sanguine Bond is up.
I'm really liking the look of Phyrexian Altar, Bloodcrazed Paladin and Indulgent Aristocrat though. Might need to cut something to make room for those. Also thinking of swapping the Crypt Ghast out for Nirkana Revenant, or just putting both in and tripling my mana. I also like Legion's Landing Flip but I used to run Trading Post which serves the same purpose but is more versatile. Cut for Ashnod's Altar at the moment.

Suggestions are below. Overall thoughts - while I know you're not a tribal deck, you're not playing to Edgar's strengths as a token and sac fodder generator by not maximizing your number of vamps. Given the choice between an equivalent vampire and non-vampire, I'd choose vampire any time.
Oathsworn Vampire + Bontu's Monument + Phyrexian Altar - Forms an instant-win infinite life loss combo. Each piece is also good on its own: Oathsworn recurs himself as fodder; Monument is effectively ramp for the majority of your creatures; and Altar is one of the best sac outlets for EDH.
Bloodghast - One of the best pieces of sacrifice fodder in the game, even outside of vampire tribal.
Bloodcrazed Paladin - If you want to sacrifice many tokens at once, he's excellent payoff. Also good insurance against boardwipes.
Indulgent Aristocrat - Another good sac outlet.
Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle - Another good token generator, albeit not as powerful if you're not constantly swinging out.
