When I was a learning player my Cmdr was Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . I had no problem with it, but the meta has shifted and that card is bad. I would suggest a Cmdr that's not confusing. One that does exactly what it reads. I think drawing cards is the funniest thing in magic so I suggest Selvala, Explorer Returned . Its low costed, it's not gonna break the bank, people like selvala because people like drawing cards, so it doesn't die to spot removal often, she can generate lots of mana to play big spells, and playing big spells is the next most fun thing you can do. It doesn't make you fo a specific theme, Plus it's my second Cmdr while I was a learning player.

If that's not good I think Queen Marchesa it another good option. For some of the same reasons.

Vedi tu cosa togliere, se vuoi ti mando una lista di cosa toglierei io su whatsapp. Inoltre, secondo me, potresti considerare un paio di terre in meno, siccome la tua curva di mana, per come è adesso il mazzo, è molto bassa. Tu nel caso cambia qualche carta, e ricontrolla la curva, poi ti adegui di conseguenza.

So I recently acquired a copy of Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet from my LGS. I thought the art looked very cool, and I never got a chance to play with the original zendikar block so I thought maybe I should try him out in EDH. Problem is, I have no idea where to use him. I'd like to lean away from Vampire Tribal so Edgar is out, and I can't decide if I should use him as a commander. I'm in a tier 2.5-3 meta and even though we're casual, he seems pretty slow. Anyone have any experience with him as the commander? Anyone have him in a deck at all?

Not a big fan of Torment of Hailfire, in a 60 card deck with small life totals.. it's a sketchy card, but in commander it's far to easy to "opt out" with it. Besides the cost is a bit too expensive for what it does.

I would look into replacing Licia, sanguine Tribune with Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet. Kalitas is a bit cheaper, doesn't require 3 colors and the effect is honestly more devastating.

This probably goes without saying, but the faster you get rid of those tap lands, the faster the deck improves.

The biggest issue I see here is the overall CMC of most of the creatures. It's fairly high and while many are good, Edgar works at his best when he has an army to work with. With 37 lands and the bulk of the creatures on the higher end of the curve, you will often find yourself struggling to get anything out. If anything I would look to reduce the number of 4+ CMC's to what is most in line with your objective for the deck.

Some of the spells are less efficient than they could be, but that's always something to work on. Cards like Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, and Ad Nauseam can provide a significant boost to your hand, as would cards like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor.

Lastly the interaction could be improved, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, Vindicate, and Path to Exile are staples in these colors that honestly should never be left out. Forced sacrifice is good, but outright removal is better and 3 of those 4 are very universal in application.

The deck is as you say it is, stock with improvements.. which isn't terrible and certainly serviceable. For now I would just work at improving the staple things (interaction, draw, and land) until you get a really good feeling for exactly what you want the deck to, then begin tinkering. When you figure that out and you still want help, update your description. It helps people to give you more precise advice.

FiendishElf, I really love Cabal Coffers as a card, and run it in all my mono black decks for obvious reasons. However, once you introduce a second or third color into a deck, the amount of basic swamps in your deck drops from 20ish to 1-5. Unless you have a consistent way to get Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and the coffers at once, the chances of you actually getting value from it is slim to none. If you like mono black vamp generals, such as Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, or either Drana, then I would heavily recommend it. Some casual, budget lists of Olivia Voldaren that have a lot of basic swamps can run it, but for the most part I would advise against it. Just run Urborg so you can get all the black mana you need, or even a Chromatic Lantern
