Malakir Bloodwitch Discussion
23 hours ago
I would do:
- Vampire Nocturnus out for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (a ~50/50 eff vs grave hate + free creatures)
- Bloodcrazed Paladin out for Zulaport Cutthroat (situationally big vs more Blood Artist fun)
- Dictate of Erebos out for Impact Tremors (bigger Grave Pact vs literally SHIT TONS of chip damage)
- Necropolis Regent out for Malakir Bloodwitch (WAY overcosted and only works on successful atks vs big chip damage)
- Child of Night out for Brutal Hordechief (ok Vamp vs more chip damage + late game combat control)
- Maybe Damnation out for Blasphemous Act? (4 CMC vs probably 4 or less CMC)

I have DEF found copter to be better than Call the Bloodline. It gives massive card advantage being able to cast the card I discard with madness while drawing me another. I was trying to steer clear of it being all "standard" (I know they rotated) Lightning Axe def in the sideboard I haven't added onto here yet, but after a good few playtests I don't think Fiery Temper is necessary. Terminate really does work, and Blightning is a good way to force people to discard removal or threats to my army of smalll dudes, which can then usually finish people off when I play Malakir Bloodwitch.

What do you think of these board wipe protection cards that I am playing? They are:
I am surprised you are not playing Phyrexian Reclamation.
You have Malakir Bloodwitch which I also play. My curve is 2.54 so I try to avoid the higher cost vampires. I am playing Voldaren Pariah Flip, Bloodline Necromancer and Vampire Nocturnus? Have you tried any of these? What would you cut?

In my experience, Tokens don't do a whole bunch of work. Because you'll need at least 5+ creatures to hit once or twice. Although it of course depends on what your friends play! First off just some cuts I'd recommend; Bishop of the Bloodstained Is an OK vamp, but Malakir Bloodwitch is way better, Bloodghast is ok but he's only a 2/1 with maybe haste, granted he essentially keeps comming back, but he dosnt have a great threat level that needs an answer for and he dosnt proc Edgar each time he ETB theres a lot better vamps out there who can fill this slot. Bloodthrone Vampire is ok but sacing a token just for a +2/+2 seems meaningless for me, sure it's a 3/3 but you have to burn a token that could be attacking instead, so you're really just getting one more damage...Falkenrath Gorger is a great card, but you kinda need to play around it so to speak, you cant cast madess as a regular cast and you're not benefiting from discarding in this deck so it seems a little out of place, if you were to have say Olivia, Mobilized for War and other discard theme's then I'd be for it but unless your playing against heavy discard decks I'd say no, Journey to Nowhere and Oblivion Ring are nice enchantments sure, but with black,red AND white as card sources, you're already in the BEST removal in the game, I'd but more usefull cards like the new Kindred Dominance or something like Crackling Doom to get more bang for your buck so to speak. (although granted you could get back the Journey to Nowhere and Oblivion Ring through some recursion, but recursion is not the main theme of this deck. (if you wana go that route, i'd say go Patriarch's Bidding, Go for the Throat, love this card for 2 mana but there is a better card out here, and since Edgar is a heavy black deck, I havent had ANY issue casting this, Malicious Affliction if just a fabulous card, for only TWO mana you can kill TWO things, simply marvelous, and since you're in heavy removal colors the Morbid hasnt been hard to trigger, or killing creatures (i.e your own tokens or so). Also I love Mortify and its flavor, but there is an upgrade, its called Wear / Tear kills both an enchantment AND artifact, for the SAME MANA COST. It's simply better. Sorry for such the long post! But some cuts/ rec's i'd give to you. I personally think that a tribal theme deck's are weak because they focus more on a timmy strategy and have no answer's to anything because they want to barf out their vampires, werewolfs, merfolk, w/e and just flood the board! (like those damn elves) But we as vampires are more powerful and cunning than that! I think the best vampire is to focus more on a control/good vampire strategy.

Feast of Blood needs 2 vamps in play to kill 1 card. Even if you have 2 low costed vamps, that's turn 3 earliest if they both survive. With Bolt, Path and Push being so omnipresent in Modern, Feast is seriously unreliable, especially since it's a sorcery and not an instant.
Sorin really isn't played at all in this format, unlike EDH where he was almost banned at one point. He was really good in original Zendikar standard, and was a one-of in the deck that won 1st place world that year (UB control, though vamps made top 8). In Modern he's too much mana to cast in midrange, he's the wrong color for ramp aggro which is usually GR, he doesn't fit into Tron unlike Karn or Ugin and control runs 3-4 Bob (Dark Confidant). If you want an amazing planeswalker, though she's expensive and more midrange-y anyway, one of the best cards in the format is Liliana of the Veil or not far behind, Liliana, the Last Hope. If You wanted a budget alternative that's still admittedly a little slow, there's Ob Nixilis Reignited, but 5 mana in vamps is really pushing it unless the card is seriously gamebreaking like Voldaren Pariah or back in the day Malakir Bloodwitch.
By the way I just realized the new set coming out has Vicious Conquistador who is literally a better Pulse Tracker.
My recommendations for an aggressive monoblack list in terms of creatures is something like: 4 Vampire Lacerator, 4 Vicious Conquistador, 2 Viscera Seer, 4 Bloodghast, 4 Gifted Aetherborn who I've dubbed Vampire Nightpenguin, 4 Gatekeeper of Malakir, 2 Captivating Vampire, 4 Vampire Nocturnus, 1 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, 1 Sanctum Seeker, 1 Asylum Visitor. If space is too tight cut the captivatings and visitor and lower Aetherborn to 3. This is similar to my first build, and has a pretty low curve lending way to speed and damage. Seers are here to ensure consistency for Nocturnus and get you the topdeck you need in an emergency as they can sac as they block.
Fetch lands do a lot actually. A land you pull from your deck is a land you're not topdecking at a critical moment when you really don't want one. They also let you double dip on Bloodghast and provide incentive not to chump block him. They also let you shuffle your deck for Nocturnus if you topdeck a land, which are cololess due to no mana cost.

I would cut the following cards due to their high mana costs and because they offer little other than their bodies to the deck: Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Licia, sanguine Tribune , Malakir Bloodwitch, Nirkana Revenant, Patron of the Vein, and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter. Additionally I would cut Black Market, Cathars' Crusade, and Blood Tribute for more or less the same reasons. I would cut these for more ramp, which in mardu is just mana rocks, and lands in general, even if you kept 1-3 of your big beaters and cut the rest it would improve the curve and draws considerably.
