Kalastria Highborn Discussion

Kalastria Highborn and Bloodghast are powerful vampires, kalastria especially regarding sac triggers. +1 for vampires.

Usually in an early attack plan deck I choose to have up to eight one drops, not including burn/kill spells such as Lightning Bolt, Lightning Axe or Tragic Slip. Why no Captivating Vampire's? At least one in the maindeck could be helpful, you could always sideboard them out for extra burn against decks with few creatures. Oh, Kalastria Highborn would be absolutely ridiculous alongside a Viscera Seer.

I changed a few things and just ordered the changes. Now Kalastria Highborn would have to replace Gatekeeper of Malakir idk if i wanna take out a possible 1 mana sacrifice kicker.

Add the bloodline keeper and remove Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief. Also, I wouldn't use either Kalastria Highborn or Blood Artist. They are both slow and weak.

Awesome deck!! Never thought that a vampire deck could be Orzhov and synergize so well. I think Kalastria Highborn would be a good addition. Since it would also with the tokens that Bloodline Keeper  Flip creates and works well with the theme of this deck.

Hi, I've put together a bunch of vampire lists. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of modern mono-black cards. First up, Blade of the Bloodchief. It makes lifelink into a game-stalling certainty. With decent creatures that you don't want in the 'yard Indulgent Aristocrat beats Viscera Seer for providing more lifelink and some pump. Vampire Envoy isn't great as a card- 1 or 2 drop removal is more practical, and Pawn of Ulamog a more flavourful option. Similarly, with all those little creatures with keywords Lashwrithe can do good stuff. Ratchet Bomb is a slow answer to many modern threats black can't answer and ends tokens,and so practical sideboard. I'll reccomend Imp's Mischief as combo and boggle disruption. Disfigure is a lot more practical than gut shot for defence, and Bump in the Night when attacking. Temporal Extortion is my preferred endgame- it usually puts out more damage than dropping Vampire Nocturnus even if the choice is your opponents rather than your topdeck. Fetches change that, but whatever. I find Blood Artist usually outperforms Kalastria Highborn, due to not having to keep mana open in a low instant-speed deck.

Long story shory, more lifelink, some card draw, hand disruption, win fnms. Duress is cheap and oh so practical. If in doubt splash green for Asceticism and Collected Company, just to frustrate those that outrange you.
