Intangible Virtue Discussion
1 day ago
This is a great start. Here are some suggestions from a Trostani deck that I use, organized by pricing tiers to help keep this deck budget:
3/3 Tokens and another way to populate
Alternate Win Condition. Probably works better with Trostani as commander due to the increased life gain, but there's quite a bit of life gain in this deck regardless, so it may work.
Some token protection
Get a variety of tokens out quick
Advent of the Wurm
Just a decent token to populate later
Fog with populate. Optional, but not too bad
White Sun's Zenith
Utilize that mana and go wide
Speaking of going wide, mega populate
Just get some dudes on the board
Board wipe with a token upside
Go wide with a little extra damage, and still have some blockers left
Tamiyo's Journal A slow tutor, but might draw you some cards if you can't get to the tutor
$1 - $5
Potentially double your board, with 4/4 fliers!
Another mass token maker, but with 1/1 fliers (evasion is nice)
Alternate win condition. Probably better with Trostani as commander as you need to be able to absorb a loss of 50 life, but even in commander, most other people won't be able to say the same.
Win condition. With a wide board, +5/+5 is huge. Also creatures enter the battlefield with the +5/+5, so with Trostani out that's some good extra life gain.
Consistent way to get some decent tokens. Also protection from flying
Life gain, removal, mill protection, and tutor? This card just has value.
Again, designed for Trostani to double up on life gain, but helps with any ETB effects you have, of which there are a couple
Should be in any white token deck
Elspeth, Sun's Champion
Create creatures, get rid of big threats, maybe get your team in the air
Often a one-sided boardwipe, makes a ton ot tokens, and will sometime just win the game
Chord of Calling
Green tutor with convoke. You have a bunch of tokens, why not?
Green Sun's Zenith
Potentially reusable creature tutor. have to have the mana available, but it will find answers for you.
Not exactly budget, but valuable in a token deck
Artifact and Enchantment Tutor. Again, not really budget, but likely worth it in your deck

i'm seeing a mix up of new and older cards are you using what you have only or are you up for suggestions? Trostani Discordant would also work here Dawn of Hope is great cause you gain life from creatures coming into play Emmara, Soul of the Accord is quite useful with a tap mechanic like convoke. Kodama's Reach, Cultivate cause its a good cheap ramp card Anointed Procession is a bit expensive but it'll make more wurm tokens for you Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage is another token spawner so it should speed up life gain and blockers Wayfaring Temple can get crazy with how fast it can get out of control. Intangible Virtue to make tokens faster. Cathars' Crusade cause when you spawn 3 tokens a turn minim your creatures become unstoppable

Cool deck! I thought I'd take a glance at your deck since you were kind enough to upvote mine. I love vampires too, and my Edgar Markov deck has gone through about a million different variations haha. I'll throw out a couple suggestions. I tried to keep my suggestions cheap, since you said you are on a budget.
Radiant Destiny: This card seems like it would be a better version of Intangible Virtue. It can buff all your vampires, not just the tokens, and give your whole board vigilance. It should be easy enough to trigger ascend, since you will have a bunch of free vampire tokens to get to 10 permanents in play.
Dark Prophecy: The triple black casting cost can be tricky when building a tri-color mana base on a budget, but this will trigger on your token deaths as well. For that reason, I think it could replace Midnight Reaper, since the reaper doesn't draw for your token deaths. It can be a bit risky with a large board, but it would ensure you will never run out of cards in hand again. Plus, it is pretty cheap!
Divine Visitation: This might be a fun option for you to consider. It would turn Edgar's eminence ability into providing a flying angel on every vampire cast! It doesn't fit with the vampire tribal theme, but it would be a fun card.
As far as card draw goes, I think you should strongly consider Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Painful Truths, and Read the Bones. Bloodtracker is also a good option to consider, and also turns Edgar's +1/+1 counters he gives into card draw. You might also consider Dusk / Dawn, Fell the Mighty, and Citywide Bust as boardwipes. These tend to let smaller creatures live, and many of your vampires (especially the tokens) would be small enough to survive the boardwipe. Dusk / Dawn could also function as card draw if you are desperate, since you can cast it from your grave to return a bunch of vampires to your hand.

All of the Leylines are great if you can bank on laying them Turn 1. Unfortunately this means one is generally left in the position of needing to "mulligan down" until getting one, resulting in the need to run 3 or 4 copies. All of the Leylines are remarkably underpowered for their mana costs, with each having much cheaper mana costs and better options for any turn other than #1 (like Intangible Virtue vs. Leyline of the Meek, making their only real advantage being the freebie Turn 1 drop. Unless I'm running a specific combo off of them and have room for 4 copies, I generally leave Leylines out of my decks.

- I definitely think Intangible Virtue would be a good fit at least, possibly even over Leyline of the Meek since you've only got one copy in there anyway.
- The other suggestions may or may not work for you on mana costs for their yield depending on how the deck plays, but I think beefing up the tokens even before they all become dragons (at which point they're still tokens too obviously) is a solid move.

Oh and these are two VERY food cards to have in this deck, I'm linking them how ever I haven't checked the price before linking, I wouldn't be surprised if one is kinda expensive due to it sees SOME modern play...

gandalfguyysnp thanks for the suggestions. The problem I have with Wake the Reflections is that it is too inconsistent. While sometimes it can be explosive, other times it's just a dead draw. I feel this card would be better if it was an instant instead of a sorcery, which is why I went with Rootborn Defenses (even though Rootborn can be a dead draw too). That way I don't have to commit to going wide on my main-phase, where it will be more susceptible to my opponents sorcery sweepers. However, you're right that Intangible Virtue is pretty bonkers in this deck, so it probably makes more sense to move Rootborn to the sideboard.
I feel that Path to Exile is just too good to pass up. I'd say it's necessary for almost any deck that plays white. The card is just too much value, and there are too many threats that dodge Selesnya Charm. That's just my opinion though.

This is a pretty good deck, it really caught my eye, since I recently started on a deck similar to this spamming those tokens. A couple suggestions that I have found from my deck. Wake the Reflections is a really good card in this deck, just imagine creating a 5/5 or 3/3 for 1 mana. Also I'd put the Intangible Virtue into the deck, it is really powerful. I'd suggest taking out the Rootborn Defenses, since, you should be creating tokens fast enough that you won't need to protect them. Also the path to exile could be taken out, since that really could just be on the sideboard, and you already have a remove card with Selesnya Charm. Lastly, I'm not sure if you already own all these cards, but Anointed Procession does the same thing as Parallel Lives, but for about half the price.
