Martyr of Dusk Discussion
1 month ago
Thank you very much, MontaukMonster
I plan on using my 1-drop Duskborne Skymarcher in the beginning, 2-drops Martyr of Dusk or more Duskborne Skymarchers, and saving up enough mana so that I can counterspell with Negate or especially Essence Capture which would give me time to gather more Lands and give +1/+1 to whoever needs it. Then hopefully I will be able to cast, most of all Benalish Marshal , or Radiant Destiny which would be somewhat helpful as long as I still have some Vampires on the field, or Queen's Commission or even Squire's Devotion . As long as I have some 1/1 Vampires with Lifelink, I'll be able to block enemy creatures without trample for some life and more time for Lands. The main problem I have is Mana cost, as most of my cards are 3 and 4 drops: Unbreakable Formation , Sanguine Glorifier , Benalish Marshal , Radiant Destiny , Squire's Devotion , Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Queen's Commission . I'll have to change my deck entirely in order to make a better Azorius Deck as those are my main White Vampire cards to choose from.

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 :)
(based on mana that is)
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 :)

I'd be looking at cutting:
- -1 Judith, the Scourge Diva
- -1 Teysa Karlov
- -1 Elenda, the Dusk Rose
- -3 Imperious Oligarch
- -2 Rix Maadi Reveler
- -4 Seraph of the Scales
- -4 Martyr of Dusk
And adding some number of:
Better cards for the archetype in my opinion!

The issue with Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper is that they don't affect token creatures, which are a lot of your deck. Regardless, it's probably a good idea to include them anyway. I might cut Hunted Witness and Martyr of Dusk in favor of 4 Zulaport Cutthroat and 3 Viscera Seer.
While I like the flavor of Dictate of Erebos, cutting them for a 4th Viscera Seer and 2 Grim Haruspex might be a good idea. That lowers both your mana curve and the price of the deck. In addition, I'm not sure how well it performs in modern. The 5 CMC is a little high for modern, and it would most likely get blown up before it saw any use. This would get even worse after sideboarding.

Did not even know about Vona, Butcher of Magan, I run a similar deck on Arena. The thing I did that isn't here is to run Divine Visitation in the hopes of popping all the tokens you get from vampire lifelinkers into angels. Even without getting that combo off, the deck is still strong. You need Call to the Feast for buffing the Pridemade.
If you go the angel token route, you will start to axe cards that don't contribute. I don't run Diamond Mare, Chupacabra. I do run Martyr of Dusk which fits your budget theme. Conclave Tribunal is better than Seal Away.

Have you considered stuff like Legion Lieutenant or Radiant Destiny? You have very few early drops in the deck and a ton of 4/5-drops, Vanquisher's Banner is expensive and doesn't work very well with tokens. If your plan is to go wide, you might want to fully commit to that. Going 4x Queen's Commission, Dusk Legion Zealot(or Martyr of Dusk) and use Skymarcher Aspirant as your 1-drop for the early ascend plus an evasive 2/1 body might be the way to go. I just feel you're going in multiple directions with the list, going Vicious Conquistador -> Queen's Commission -> Ritual of Soot doesn't look like a good idea. Maybe try Golden Demise if you want a sweeper main deck that's a complete blowout with your early ascend. Golden Demise acts like a more versatile Pride of Conquerors if you're playing black. Also, enchantment based removal becomes better than things like Murder with that plan. Baffling End and Conclave Tribunal will help you towards ascend while dealing with your opp stuff, Conclave Tribunal especially to make use of your sorcery speed tokens, going turn 4/5 Call to the Feast into 0/1 mana Conclave Tribunal seems pretty good.

Your mana curve is way too high to just have twenty lands for mana, even with The Immortal Sun. Vicious Conquistador, Famished Paladin, Adanto Vanguard, Dusk Legion Zealot and Martyr of Dusk would bring your mana curve way down. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Bishop of Binding, Vanquisher's Banner and Radiant Destiny should also be considered here.
- Cut 4 Epicure of Blood for 4 Conquistador.
- Cut 4 Paladin of the Bloodstained for 4 Martyr of Dusk.
- Cut 4 Vampire Sovereign for 4 Zealot.
- Cut 4 Bishop's Soldier for 4 Vanguard.
- Cut 4 Inspiring Cleric for 2 Mavren Fein, and 1 more Elenda and Legion's Landing.
- Cut 4 Call to the Feast for 2 Radiant Destiny, 1 Banner and 1 more Profane Procession.
