SoulsSlayerKnight on Life of a Vampire

Hi :), I first started with vampires and its a load of fun. not a bad vampire deck to start, although I have a couple suggestions that I hope may be able to help out.

The first suggestion I have is a card called Radiant Destiny which is very useful if your going the full on vampire creature route. 4x Radiants would be very well what you need to help those vampires to become stronger.

My biggest concern is your mana curve, capping at 5 being the most is similar to the opposite of what vampires are kinda meant to be. Quick and deadly.

Maybe try something more like this. Hope it helps out a bit more :)

Small drops

4x Vicious Conquistador 4x Legion Lieutenant 2x-4x Dusk Legion Zealot 2x-4x Martyr of Dusk 2x Ajani's Welcome

medium drops

1x-3x Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle 2x Inspiring Cleric 3x-4x Murder 2x Sanctum Seeker 1x Twilight Prophet 1x-2x Elenda, the Dusk Rose 4x Call to the Feast 4x Radiant Destiny

Large drops

1x Champion of Dusk 2x Epicure of Blood 1x The Eldest Reborn

lands

4x Godless Shrine 4x Isolated Chapel 10x Swamp 6x Plains

(based on mana that is)

Suggestions

Midnight Reaper Radiant Destiny Elenda, the Dusk Rose Queen's Commission Vicious Conquistador Skymarcher Aspirant Unclaimed Territory

Thats about all i can think of. I don't think it completely adds up to 60 cards but slightly more but vampires do not need lots of lands because they-re generally fast but around 20-22 lands should work hopefully. 24 is best to if you can find stuff to take out extra.

I hope some of this helps out from an previous vampire player. I wish you the best of luck and hope the matches will play out well :)

Hey, saw that you're looking for help.

In my opinion the Vampiric Bloodlust precon doesn't showcase Edgar's best ability which is eminence from the Command Zone. You want to take advantage of this with low mana cost Vampires, mostly one/two/three drops. With eminence you want to swarm the board fast with Vampires because each low mana cost Vamp you cast gives you 1/1 Vamp token. Eminence lets you establish an army of Vamps much faster if you're casting one and two drop Vamps.

I'm suggesting for you to consider completely changing the strategy of your deck? Reduce the avg. CMC which is currently high at 3.7, make it so you can play a lot more Vamps faster. Use Sanctum Seeker , Malakir Bloodwitch and Edgar as the top end Vampires and cut most of the rest. These three benefit a lot, can do a ton of damage with big armies of Vamps. For upgrades to the precon consider starting by add all the good one drop and two drop budget Vamps?

Budget Vamps ($2 or less each) to consider adding:

Can add all these cards for about $11.


In all Commander deck builds lands that can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped should be priority. Don't be afraid of including more basic lands instead of lands that ETB tapped. Budget lands to consider:

Can add all these lands for about $17.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Can add the rest of these cards for about $12. Total price of suggested upgrades is about $40.


I'm suggesting to make a lot of changes by cutting a large number of high mana cost cards replacing them with low mana cost cards especially Vampires. Except the lands most of the cards I'm suggesting to cut are good cards, but most have high mana costs. Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Boros Guildgate
  • Akoum Refuge
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Stone Quarry
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Kabira Crossroads
  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Cinder Barrens
  • Anowon, the Ruin Sage
  • Blood Baron of Vizkopa
  • Bloodline Necromancer
  • Bloodsworn Steward
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Crimson Honor Guard
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Heir of Falkenrath
  • Licia, Sanguine Tribune
  • Mathas, Fiend Seeker
  • Olivia Voldaren
  • Patron of the Vein
  • Sangromancer
  • Skeletal Vampire
  • Skymarch Bloodletter
  • Vein Drinker
  • Black Market
  • Kindred Boon
  • Alms of the Vein
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Blood Divination
  • Consuming Vapors
  • Kindred Charge
  • Syphon Mind
  • Fell the Mighty
  • Well of Lost Dreams
  • Worn Powerstone

If you like these suggestions, or have any questions I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.

In commander, the mana base is usually the thing that costs the most to get right. But it's one of the first things you should address to make any deck better. By mana base, I include things like Sol Ring , the signets (such as Orzhov Signet ), Chromatic Lantern , and limit the lands that always enter tapped. Such as Dragonskull Summit . Land count of about 36 should work. To start, I'd stick to mainly low cast vampires with good abilities, cards that pump your creatures up, or benefit from them dying.

Commander decks like things that speed up your mana(ramp), draw you cards, recur cards from graveyard, and having removal for threats.

Here are some suggested additions to base deck (most budget, some not):
Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Indulgent Aristocrat , Legion Lieutenant , Swords to Plowshares , Sanctum Seeker , Forerunner of the Legion , Olivia Voldaren , Twilight Prophet , Bishop of Rebirth , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Shadow Alley Denizen , Mirror Entity , Vanquisher's Banner , Metallic Mimic , Herald's Horn , Anointed Procession , Legion's Landing  Flip, Cathars' Crusade , Shared Animosity , Dictate of Erebos .

PS, don't know why bloodline keeper showed up as foil. You can get regular version. JS. I also over looked you having a list up. Some suggestions I see are in the deck. Oops.

Here are some suggestions: Legion Lieutenant, Kalastria Highborn, Skymarcher Aspirant, Vampire Lacerator

The only one of these that I think you really need is Legion Lieutenant, but Kalastria Highborn can be good in the sideboard as a counter to sweepers (it's probably better than Oathsworn Vampire at least), and the two one-drops are both better than Vampire Cutthroat here imo. Other than that I think you should at least run a 2/2 split of Fatal Push and Path, just because Push is a black card and Path isn't.

Hey TheErebos!

Alright so cards off the top of my head to definitely keep for the vampires.

Now moving on to the card types, for anthem/doubling/synergy token effects:

Now going for the interaction suite:

Now for card draw engines:

No good deck is left without tutors as well:

So far those cards are to be considered, sort through the cards and we can refine them to a playable deck list. Add in 36 lands to start, I feel that eventually we can cut it down to 34-35 since Markov will run a low curve. The basic lands should be good along with the basic multicolor mana base like Command Tower, Reflecting Pool, Mana Confluence, Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, the shock lands (Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt, Sacred Foundry), and also the painlands for now (Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Sulfurous Springs).

Let me know when you update it!
