I also run 36 lands but with all 3 signets, sol ring, talisman of indulgence, and mana crypt and our avg cmc is very similar... 3.00 for you and 3.06 for me.

I'd personally drop Kalastria Highborn, her ability doesn't do much and I rarely had the mana open to use her. However you're only at 29 creatures so if you drop her I'd replace her with Yahenni.

I'd try Reconnaissance in Door of Destinies slot. I'm not a huge fan of Door or Cathar's Crusade here because of a huge mana investment for something that typically does nothing the turn it comes into play and then requires you to have cards to essentially feed it to get them to do anything.

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):

Consider cutting:

  • 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:

Other cards to consider cutting:

  • Pawn of Ulamog
  • Mathas, Fiend Seeker
  • Mortify
  • Worn Powerstone
  • Kindred Boon

Good luck with your deck.

cards i would strongly consider

cards i would cut:

  • any of the equipment, it feels like more of a swarm deck, which makes the equipment less worthwhile
  • Licia, Sanguine Tribune, shes an ok card, but better as a voltron commander than in the 99 of a swarm deck.
  • Mirri the Cursed seems weak to me
  • Comeuppance and Delerium have way better and lower CMC options
  • i would also cut down to 38 lands, frees up 4 card slots and, with Urza's Incubator and a 3.77 average CMC, i dont think mana will be that big an issue.

Gotta spread love for mono-black players, so +1 from me.

My first suggestion would be to cut out the common fetches (Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse) even though they could possibly help you with Vampire Nocturnus.

  1. Modern has some great vampire cards available to you, the most obvious being Captivating Vampire and Kalastria Highborn. This deck wants be very aggressive and you will probably want stronger vampires to play competitively.

  2. Interaction. Modern is a turn 4 format, and you are going to need discard and a sideboard to have any chance of dealing with decks like Tron and whatnot. The best options for the moment are Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek.

  3. Play 4 copies of Vampire Nocturnus, it is by far the best card in the deck, and you'll want to draw it every game.

  4. If you want a full primer on mono black decks in general, you can find mine here:

  5. A well-known deckbuilder named SaffronOlive made a great vampire list with options and whatnot a while back, you can find that here: SaffronOlive Vampire List Link

  6. If you want suggestions like cuts and whatnot, feel free to post on my wall @ Sargeras.

Yeah, I guess a solid sideboard is pretty essential here to keep your main combo pieces alive. I got to playtest my own newly built black/white vampire deck a few times today. Metallic Mimic and Legion Lieutenant put in serious work since they dropped so early into the game at turn 2.

I played 2 times against a red/black aggro, and the only way I won that matchup was due to some timely creature removal. Sadly, as I find with most games in today's meta I never got to hit off any cool combos with Kalastria Highborn.

Lifelink OP.
