Martyr of Dusk Discussion

KibaAlpha Thanks, i took a look and there are some cards that i find interesting, mainly as sac material because i think i neeed some more and also better ones. I might change Dutiful Attendant for Orzhov Enforcer and Black Cat for Martyr of Dusk . It also makes me consider even more changing Shadows of the Past for Falkenrath Noble since i was considering that already.

two of these drop tokens on death, and one does damage. We can also add in Seraph of the Scales for a total of three creatures to sacrifice.

Carrier Thrall gives overall 3 bodies for , if you really want all of these to be Vampires then there's Martyr of Dusk HOWEVER, we'd be better off with sticking to as much as possible, that's why I recommend the former creature more.
About changes you've made: basically speaking you've changed nothing FUNCTIONALLY while significantly lowering the CMC of cards you use, so the damage from Ad Nauseam / Bolas's Citadel is lowered in the long run, which means more card advantage from them or more life as a resource to spend. There's only one word that can describe this - "marvelous" :)
Another thought that hit me this morning - do you really need Land Tax here? With 7 basics it might very fast run out of cards search for and when cast later in a game doesn't provide enough immediate results (if any at all). There's Chrome Mox for about the same price and no matter when you use it it's great or if you want huge start of casting something big with Winter Orb on the field then there are the rituals I've already mentioned.

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.
