Mikaeus, the Lunarch Discussion

Your cards with Outlast are going to be a whole lot stronger if you can find ways to give all of your creatures +1/+1 counters other than using Outlast. Popular ways to do so would be: Citadel Siege, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, and targeting a Phalanx Leader with some friendly spells.

You could also consider adding Brave the Sands for a further buff to your creatures.

Armorcraft Judge can be an insane card draw spell with legs. Same with Fathom Mage.

Before I went full superfiends with my Atraxa build I loved(and still do love) Tamiyo, Field Researcher. Also Djeru, With Eyes Open xan be a great tutor for walkers.

If you stay creature based Winding Constrictor can be a 2 CMC Corpsejack. Scavenging Ooze is almost always great, double great if your meta has a lot of graveyard dependant decks.

Random great counter creatures, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Hangarback Walker, Rishkar, Peema Renegade

Finally a card I recommend to almost every deck with white in it, Austere Command, man do I love that card.

Cuts i would make:

-Hangarback Walker He really seems out of place here, no buffs for creatures and not the best Token generator with the very small Landbase you play

-Silence a good card but doesnt have a place in this kind of deck i feel like

-Mikaeus, the Lunarch you have some tokens in the deck, but since they're mostly soldiers more copies of Preeminent Captain are faster and more consistent

-Goblin Guide Cut for more copies of Champion of the Parish.since you're not playing aggro,the Champion will be way bigger then the Goblin only 1 or 2 turns later, and ramping your opponent in longer games is not quite good.

Apologies ahead of time; this will be a long post. Edgar is my introduction to the commander scene and he came at a great time, since I've been wanting to rebuild my old vampire tribal. A couple things to consider (as I've been looking into it, too).

Regarding the counters, Metallic Mimic naming Vampire would help by immediately pumping any vampires you cast and each token you produce. Cathars' Crusade would be bonkers with Edgar. Mikaeus, the Lunarch boosts all creatures, too. I wouldn't be too concerned with removing vampires for non-vampires honestly. It can still be tribal with a few helpful "thrulls" if the cards work too well not to include. (Also Mephidross Vampire and Voldaren can change them.) Urge to Feed is spot removal with the possibility of pumping.

You could also consider some of the Abzan cards that would benefit all of your creatures with counters on them, such as Abzan Falconer and Mer-Ek Nightblade. I believe Whip of Erebos is strictly better than the Battlepriest, though. Along the same lines, Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch provides another haste card, which is scary (and she fits the flavour while not being a vampire herself).

Other thoughts are the use of Ajani planeswalkers in tandem with (or in place of) some of the Sorin planeswalkers. Fits the flavour? No. Fits the theme? Hell yes.

Final considerations. Anointed Procession is also crazy with Edgar. While it would appear underwhelming on its own, Edgar's eminence effect will always make it a threat. Collective Effort is great utility with versatile removal or pump spell in one. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is a pricey card, but amazing. And I feel Coat of Arms is superior to Door of Destinies.

Good luck with everything and let me know if you make any changes that work!

Looks very cool; however, I know from experience that Daghatar's 4 +1/+1 counter can be underwhelming. I recommend Corpsejack Menace, Cathars' Crusade, Forgotten Ancient, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Managorger Hydra, and Cauldron of Souls.

It's a weird one but have you heard of the deck-in-a-deck idea? In this case you could shell it into Ramos, Dragon Engine . This would give access to green and white (two of the best colors for +1/+1 counters). You would have access to stuff like Ghave, Guru of Spores, Animar, Soul of Elements, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, or Marath, Will of the Wild. The outlast cards like Abzan Battle Priest gives some combat edge and or evasion.

another adevantege here is you could activate abilities of stolen creatures more easily (chromatic lantern does this too though)

Hey! Thanks for the input. I really like Enduring Scalelord, and have been thinking about using him quite a bit recently. He'll definitely make it in with Mirage Mirror. I like Mikaeus, the Lunarch as well, and will definitely be making room for him in the final build.

As far as removal: My playgroup rarely plays very threatening creatures, (as I'm one of two Timmy/Spike players in a large group of Johnnys) so most of the "removal" cards that will eventually find their way into the deck are things like Disenchant and Naturalize. Perhaps Return to Dust?
