Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Discussion

Oloro_Magic on Weak in the knees

I have to agree with the earlier suggestion of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, it is a card that fits well with your deck. I still don't see Diabolic Tutor being fast enough however, I would cut it for the previously mentioned Incendiary Flow or Fatal Push to deal with creatures burn damage can't.

OK I've played around with this a bit and would suggest something like this:

2x Drana, Liberator of Malakir
2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
4x Soul-Scar Mage
4x Thermo-Alchemist
2x Voldaren Pariah  Flip

10x Mountain
4x Smoldering Marsh
8x Swamp
(it would make the mana more consistent if you added 4 Canyon Slough instead of 2 Mountains and 2 Swamps)

2x Abrade
4x Fiery Temper
4x Lightning Axe
4x Magma Spray

2x Diabolic Tutor
2x Incendiary Flow
2x Sweltering Suns

4x Nest of Scarabs

I agree that Outnumber is very situational. Incendiary Flow stops Lord of the Accursed from recurring.

You also need a Sideboard.

I would build something like this:

3x Grasp of Darkness - excellent against gods
4x Lay Bare the Heart - the only way to deal with Enchantments in these colours
4x Never / Return - killls Planeswalkers and big Creatures
2x Sweltering Suns - more board wipes
2x Unlicensed Disintegration - kills big Creatures, and the colours are easier to get than Murder, although you could use that instead

I haven't playtested this yet but, thinking about this current build, you would get value from board wiping your Creatures if you ran some Zulaport Cutthroat.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet would be another way to go as it sees your Opponent's Creatures get board wiped, and makes that many Zombies.

I also think you could try Thermo-Alchemist.

It provides you with a way to get extra value out of your Non-Creature spells, which mostly do damage to Creatures. Every time you play one of your Instants or Sorceries you untap it, then retap it to deal direct damage to your Opponent.

Thanks you for your help! You got a lotta good suggestions.

First and foremost, im gonna be trying this combat damage get counters theme of the vampires. The deck wants to be fast and play vamps on turn 1. Since I wanna refrain from discarding im gonna refrain from using madness things. Cards like Stromkirk Noble are gonna stay.

I do like Worn Powerstone because I can play this on turn 3 and play my commander on turn 4. Urza's Incubator does the same thing and is overall great or even better so its definitely going to be in.

So since I wanna be fast and stuff, i thought Olivia Voldaren was gonna be too slow. You gotta pump mana in it to be good while I wanna play more vamps or draw or whatever, so im gonna think about it.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is amaazing, but sadly I can't get my hands on that one just yet.

For the rest of the enchantments, those are also really good. Im gonna make room for Eldrazi Monument first and then ill see where I can put those in.

Bou on EDH Licia, Tribute for the Tribune

Oh Akuma, You're right. Had a bit of a brainfart there but was under the impression you would have to target Licia - which you don't, so it's all good. Edgar Markov is really the Vampire tribal overlord yeah - I don't make that many tokens in this deck. Think it's just Bloodline Keeper and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad that have the potential. Mynea is a nice addition from Ixalan, now that I looked.. so is Sanguine Sacrament. And I thought waiting for C17 was bad :'(.

Chiri! deathtouch and lifelink are certainly formidable! especially when you have first strike too hehe. I'm not sure about adding Serra Ascendant, it's a great 1-drop that is basically a 6/6 always, but it being a monk bothers me a bit - this is just me being petty though! it's a great card. As for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.. not a fan of the Zombies. Yes you get them for free, and you can even sac them to make Kalitas stronger, and he's a 3/4 for 4 with lifelink. Tons of value and I should really be playing him.. but I won't, for now.

I was looking for Sunbond, should add more value to our lifegain spells as well.

Delta-117 on Edgar minor upgrades

Hey there, thanks for the suggestions on my own decklist, now here are some for yours.

Swap Stromkirk Noble for Insolent Neonate.

Swap Worn Powerstone for Urza's Incubator or Thran Dynamo.

Swap Blood Baron of Vizkopa for Olivia Voldaren.

Swap Pawn of Ulamog for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (Wait for him to drop a bit lower in price if your uncertain still, after he rotates out of standard).

Iroas, God of Victory I would make room for here along with Anointed Procession somewheres.

As it's rather late for me when i'm writing this, I will continue to think up some more suggestions tomorrow, but this looks like a good start for sure.
