Why no Malicious Affliction? It's a 2 for 1 when paired with another one of the many removal spells.

I don't see why Mindcrank and a few other cards are in there if you aren't planning on milling people down, from your description it seems like thats not what you're going for, if you are, Traumatize. But I'd recommend sticking with lifedrain and good old fashion beating people over the head with lots of zombies. Phenax, God of Deception is cool, but don't try to do that and lifedrain zombies.

If you are going for a lifedrain deck look at Bontu's Monument, Whip of Erebos is good.

Look at Dralnu, Lich Lord because its amazing, same goes for Semblance Anvil, Possessed Skaab, Call to the Kindred, Ever After and Lim-Dul's Vault is broken. Obelisk of Urd is a tribal deck's best friend.

There are better wipes for this deck than Coastal Breach and you are a bit low on removal. Malicious Affliction and Dash Hopes are very good and fun. Get rid of Imprisoned in the Moon. Another thing you can do for removal is use Fleshbag Marauder, have it sac itself, then cast it from the graveyard. Stronghold Assassin too. Cauldron of Souls Can help you dodge board wipes and is a cool card to have. Perplex is fun too. And Mimic Vat

Arcane Adaptation is neat but there are much better cards that you can use. Black Market isn't as good as it seems because your mana empties before you can use it for anything good most of the time. Empty the Pits is very expensive, but if you can make it work, do it.

Your nonbasic lands are also really slow and you may need more lands in general, 36ish is about where you want to be. Look at Choked Estuary and Command Tower or cards that lower costs like Jet Medallion.

I know I've suggested to add a lot more cards than I suggested to take out, and I've never really even tried to give deck advice before, but I hope I at least gave you some ideas.

What are your thoughts on Duskmantle, House of Shadow?

Also Malicious Affliction isn't modern legal, it's from one of the commander sets.

First of all, you're not running a Sol Ring which is a must have for every commander deck. You should also be running a Cemetery Reaper, Risen Executioner, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Ghoulcaller Gisa, Orzhov Signet, Endless Ranks of the Dead, Malicious Affliction, Swords to Plowshares, Oblivion Ring, Banishing Light.

Extractor Demon is very underwhelming for this kind of deck.. I would take it out for say a Malicious Affliction or a Dictate of Erebos

Chiberia on Erebos, God of the Dead - Discard

You could definitely use some more efficient discard spells, look up an 8rack deck to get a few cards you could use. Also your commander choice for this deck is rather strange, she's not a good commander and seeing as how most of your creatures are not gorgon shes terrible. Seeing as how this seems to be on a tight budget Id recommend:

Commander You Should Go With In my Opinion:Greel, Mind Raker

Good Discard Spells and Synergy:

The Rack, Liliana's Caress, Dreamstealer, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Larceny, Rackling, Cao Cao, Lord of Wei, Dark Ritual, Mind Twist, Mind Sludge, Mind Shatter, Read the Bones, Raven's Crime, Mind Slash, Scepter of Fugue, Malicious Affliction, Go for the Throat, Walk the Plank, Shrine of Limitless Power, Necrogen Mists, Black Market, Underworld Connections, Greed, and Archfiend of Ifnir

Thats a lot I know but this deck seems to be just what you had lying around (not a bad thing thats how my decks start) so I thought Id try to help a bit, good luck!

Looks pretty good overall :) I build Edgar as well, and he's pretty fun haha. A few small suggestions, though:

  • I'd run Austere Command over Merciless Eviction. I find the modularity of big/small creature removal to be handier than the option to exile planeswalkers, but it depends on your meta.

  • I'd definitely run Phyrexian Arena over (or in addition to) Underworld Connections. It doesn't force you to keep a land tied up in order to draw cards.

  • Anguished Unmaking is one of the best pieces of removal in the game. I'd definitely run it in this deck, probably over Hero's Downfall.

  • Harsh Mercy and Patriarch's Bidding are your best friends. Punish your opponents for not playing tribal cards!

  • I've been considering Cloudstone Curio for my list. It lets you bounce between cheap vampires, so that you can get repeated cast triggers from Edgar :)

  • Malicious Affliction is also a great piece of removal unless your meta is heavily black, haha.

  • I feel like you need some more card draw in the deck. I would recommend Wheel of Fortune, but recent buyouts have pushed it into the stratosphere. Accordingly, I'd go for something like Reforge the Soul?

And as a final suggestion, I'd try running a lot more 1-cost vampires. The ability to flood out creatures in the early game is why Edgar got banned in 1v1 ;) Pulse Tracker, Insolent Neonate, Shadow Alley Denizen, Vicious Conquistador, Vampire Lacerator...All good options, and all very low curve :) I'd try to pull your overall average curve down to 3 or lower if you're able to, so that you can kill your opponents before they put up defenses.

As for cuts...I'd remove Teferi's Protection, Kindred Boon, Blind Obedience, and probably Sorin, Grim Nemesis. They don't pull their weight enough to warrant a slot, or so I've found.

Hope this helps, and happy deckbuilding!
