Indulgent Aristocrat Discussion

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

Hey if you want consistency with this deck better increase your cards 3s and 4s here. A deck with just one-ofs of random cards isn't gonna get you anywhere my man. I got some cards w/ number of copies you could work around with:
4x Legion Lieutenant ; 4x Vicious Conquistador ; 3x Indulgent Aristocrat ; 4x Concealed Courtyard ; 4x Bump in the Night ; 4x Thoughtseize ; 3x Martyr of Sands ; 3x Captivating Vampire ; 4x Skymarcher Aspirant ; 3x Yahenni, Undying Partisan .

Added some things to the maybeboard, have been testing them out for tweaks to the early game.
While Aether Vial is fantastic to have for all the benefits it gives but I decided to remove them for 4x Fatal Push or 4x Blade of the Bloodchief . I also changed the Vampire Cutthroat out for 4x Indulgent Aristocrat for a little extra boost for the group in early game scenarios while using the Bloodghast as fodder. These changes have worked rather well due to the synergy between Indulgent Aristocrat , Fatal Push and Bloodghast .
The deck leans more to the aggressive side at this point and relies heavily on the Life generated from Lifelink. While having an overabundance of life is great, I still feel that the deck requires something more defensive.

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.
Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.
Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:
- Indulgent Aristocrat
- Shadow Alley Denizen
- Legion's Landing Flip
- Vicious Conquistador
- Pulse Tracker
- Legion Lieutenant
- Kalastria Highborn
- Gifted Aetherborn
- Vampire Hexmage
- Olivia's Bloodsworn
- Dusk Legion Zealot
- Drana, Liberator of Malakir
- Forerunner of the Legion
You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.
Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:
- Unclaimed Territory
- Caves of Koilos
- Concealed Courtyard
- Battlefield Forge
- Inspiring Vantage
- Smoldering Marsh
- Sulfurous Springs
- Graven Cairns
- Tainted Field
- Tainted Peak
These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.
Good luck with your deck.

Thank You for your advice.
Sadly my friend who gave me this deck took Teferi's Protection out, so I don't have it. Boros Charm and Sorin, Solemn Visitor are two cards I had bought online earlier this week, and I plan to add both of those cards.
Other Additions I was planning on including were:
Oversold Cemetery : My friends play alot of board wipes, so being able to reuse vampires over and over again can help.
Eldrazi Monument : Giving everything indestructible is really nice. Plus by creating a bunch of tokens I always have a sack outlet.

I have a few vamps lists in the back catalogue. I've tended towards mono-black because I like to pretend to be 'the rack' for bad matchups, but I've played with mardu too.
The big question is what payoff you are looking at. You can go anywhere from pure aggro to midrange value, and since so many of the pieces work well together, the majority of options are viable.
If you have even a modest collection of vamps you can always bring something fresh to FNM which plays off the same manabase and uses the same hand disruption. This means that there is a vamps list that will work well in practically any meta, and sitting down against vamps you could be facing almost anything from pure 'small vamps/discard/burn' aggro right up to 'solemnity/unlife/ad nausiem/blood baron'.
I'm gonna try and give a quick overview of sets of cards and what they do. None of these sets are perfect, so tournament play is patchy, but some may sit in your local meta in a dominant position- use judgement and don't be scared to mix and match.
With all the small lifelinkers ( Indulgent Aristocrat , Gifted Aetherborn , Vampire Cutthroat do a lot). You play a very grindy game going over most aggro with lifelink and under most midrange with sac value. Card filtering makes a lot of value here, and things like Bloodghast / Faithless Looting (despite the meta being all graveyard hate all the time) put a lot of work in.
Madness vamps has Bloodghast engines and obscenities like Olivia, Mobilized for War / Haakon, Stromgald Scourge for vampire knight tribal, and similar 'high synergy/bad combo' setups can pack massive amounts of hand disruptiuon while cheap lifelink/deathtouch gums up the board.
Gaining a lot of life with more disruption into cards like Blood Baron of Vizkopa / Elusive Tormentor Flip is also viable, if you are comfortable executing a more old-school control list in your meta.

Thanks so much! I agree about Twilight Prophet . It seems like it would be a really powerful card in here, as well as the Greaves!
I'd have to do some playtesting with Mirri, as I have eyed other cards like Indulgent Aristocrat that would seem powerful in the deck as well.
Thank you so much for your upvote!
