Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle Discussion
5 hours ago
I guess my deck really isn't go-wide in the normal sense, but more of a "put a half dozen" low CMC vampires out and go to town, since the only token generators are a flipped Legion's Landing Flip and Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle.

I gotta say, I think you're grossly underestimating Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle. He's been nothing but stellar in every game I've used him.
I think you might be right about Legion's Landing Flip though. The deck started out having a focus on city's blessing, so getting 2 permanents for 1 mana that was also within the tribal link made it a lot more valuable.
That also frees up a bit of the mana constraint we had that kept us from using Gifted Aetherborn. It's still not perfect... We need 14 white sources that won't come into play tapped in order to be 90% sure we can cast Skymarcher Aspirant t1. We need 20 black sources in order to have 90% confidence for Aetherborn t2. It's tough to accommodate that in a deck with so few lands, but I think it could be workable...

Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle is not in the deck due to the fact that it only creates one vampire token and only creates it if you attack with a nontoken vampire. most of my non token vamps will probably used as utility and therfore will not be attacking

I see a few problems with this.
To start, why not play 4 Legion Conquistador? Having more means that you get more value with casting them.
Same with Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, you want another one of him.
Don't forget, you are allowed to have a 15 card total sideboard, and moving some of the enchantments there would make it so you don't draw Ashes against an aggressive red deck where it is useless. It also doesn't work on the main form of graveyard interaction in standard, God-Pharoah's Gift. Try adding Crook of Condemnation in the sideboard.
Axis of Mortality does nothing. As an aggressive deck, the only time you would ever get advantage from it is when you are losing to another aggro deck and in that case, turn 7 will not come.
More removal in Ixalan's Binding or Cast Out is good, since right now there is no interaction.
Oketra's Monument is also good with Legion Conquistidor.
Bishop of Rebirth dies easily and doesn't do enough, I would cut it in favor of more Adanto Vanguards.
Ritual of Rejuvenation, Sanguine Sacrament, Sheltering Light and Vampire's Zeal are not great cards, and overall would be better off as some that keep the deck towards a single plan. Possibly another Legion's Landing would help with the aggressive plan mono white has.
Metallic Mimic serves as a lord, which is especially useful with an aggressive go wide strategy.
You also want about two more lands. I recommend 2 or 3 Shefet Dunes over basic Plains since you will almost always have the mana you need without paying life.

Suggestions are below. Overall thoughts - while I know you're not a tribal deck, you're not playing to Edgar's strengths as a token and sac fodder generator by not maximizing your number of vamps. Given the choice between an equivalent vampire and non-vampire, I'd choose vampire any time.
Oathsworn Vampire + Bontu's Monument + Phyrexian Altar - Forms an instant-win infinite life loss combo. Each piece is also good on its own: Oathsworn recurs himself as fodder; Monument is effectively ramp for the majority of your creatures; and Altar is one of the best sac outlets for EDH.
Bloodghast - One of the best pieces of sacrifice fodder in the game, even outside of vampire tribal.
Bloodcrazed Paladin - If you want to sacrifice many tokens at once, he's excellent payoff. Also good insurance against boardwipes.
Indulgent Aristocrat - Another good sac outlet.
Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle - Another good token generator, albeit not as powerful if you're not constantly swinging out.

It looks like it's missing some kind of finisher / closer. Even something like Zetalpa, Primal Dawn could work as a one of. Oketra's Monument would make it to where it'd be one less and you could actually cast Settle the Wreckage after damage and before moving to out of combat on your own stuff to ramp.
I would probably go down a Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle to help with the curve and not get into a lot of multiple copies. Cast Out helps with either cycling or removal as well. I'm personally not feeling the Cartouche of Solidarity, though it looks like it might work.
I would like to know what you think and how the deck has been working. Most white weenie decks I've seen have a lot of low curves, creature heavy, and have one kind of finisher.

EDIT:: I misread what you asked was what. Martyr of Dusk is a 1W 2/1 that when it dies you get a 1/1 lifelink vamp. the replace itself effect makes it natural card advantage. The deck has a ton of cards that give a natural card advantage. Sacred Cat, Martyr of Dusk, Legion's Landing Flip, Cartouche of Solidarity, Oketra's Monument, and Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle all give us card advantage. Playing against a deck with spot removal does nothing because they can 1 for 1 us and each of our cards gets us .5+ cards by tokens, embalm, etc. After a boardwipe like Fumigate its easy to rebuild, Settle the Wreckage isnt all that scary if you play around it. An aside though, Adanto Vanguard is actually really good. Its in the current, Pre-ROI build. We gain enough life that we are able to use it as a 4 life spell that says "target player sacrifices 3 toughness creature or takes 3 damage". I played a game today where i was able to attack into a board and the opp kept choosing to block it instead of my smaller tokens.
