Creature — Vampire
Flying Whenever a creature you control deals combat damage to a player, put that many +1/+1 counters on it.
Necropolis Regent Discussion
1 month ago
Interesting budget cards that interact with +1/+1 counters:
- Animation Module
- Curse of Predation
- Forgotten Ancient is marvelous if combined with all the other creatues that obtain free counters, like Managorger Hydra .
- Feast on the Fallen
- Increasing Savagery
- Loyal Guardian
- Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest
- Mighty Emergence
- Necropolis Regent
- Primeval Bounty if you have a good amount of noncreature spells.
- Rite of Passage
- Soul's Might

I personally run 34 lands with a cmc of 3.64, but sometimes have a game I wished i included one more. You have a few more rocks and dorks in your deck, so perhaps 34 is fine. But the cmc is a bit deceiving, I think your creature cmc cuts around 4, but the tutors and cheap removal you run holds it low.
On cuts, I think your deck looks in a good shape. Just quite spread with good stuff. You perhaps can narrow your focus down some more towards your wincons, especially since you run so much tutors.
E.g. Abzan Battle Priest is a good herald, but lifelink adds nothing to your strategy apart from survival.
How often do you play Necropolis Regent over other stuff? She's good, but I'd probably played something else for 6. You already adopted my Rite of Replication plan, Mirror Mockery does nearly the same thing on Reyhan attacks.
Is Tymna the Weaver the optimal choice for card draw here? It's not that you run bleed effects.

Sooo, how often are creatures of you going to connect? You have quite some cards that want to beat face (e.g. Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Necropolis Regent , Bred for the Hunt and Thrummingbird ). Most are small but could be good though! Personally I haven't been able to profit much from bred for the hunt, but I never run the flying creatures and the heralds that you do.
But on to the questionable cards. Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest wants the Butcher of Malakir , Cataclysmic Gearhulk or Slaughter the Strong kinda effects. But Yehenni seems like your only man. So why play him?
You run allot of instants and sorceries for a deck that cares about creatures and counter-interaction, but you miss the Reyhan staple Living Death . Really, it's gorgeous (and also works with Mazirek)!
"When an effect happens or card becomes played this is put on top of an imaginary stack.
However, when a card is in the middle of being resolved, any new effects cannot take place until the card is done. So Reyhan's ability can only be placed on the stack when Living death is resolved.
Thus, Reyhan can choose new targets for all the counters that would've been lost otherwise!"
Stipped right off my primer: Reyhan&Ishai | Where Unstoppable Meets Immovable!
You have an expensive taste, maybe Assassin's Trophy is an option?
Together Forever does not only score points on it's amazing flavor between Reyhan and Ishai, creatures "die" before returning to your hand. It's all Reyhan ever needs to hear.
Lastly I'd like you to take a look at your creatures and their base power and toughness, and then take a look at Octopus Umbra . It's off-theme, but packs quite a package. Just saying.

Wow, super budget...
Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord - Good alt win-con here that doesn't rely on combat.
Herald of Secret Streams - Another finisher here.
Necropolis Regent - Close enough to your price lol.
Thrummingbird - Really good here.
Winding Constrictor - Another good cheap card here.
Now just a few all-stars in the $2-$3 range.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not budget but has plenty of budget options. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Atraxa-less Atraxa (Reyhan/Ishai +1+1 counters)

Personally, I don't like the rate on Banewhip Punisher , Oathsworn Vampire (It's just really bad Bloodghast ), Sadistic Skymarcher , Tragic Poet , Foul-Tongue Shriek , Chalice of Life Flip, Fountain of Renewal , Bishop of the Bloodstained (Anthems and Sanctum Seeker will just be a lot more damage over the course of a game), Ravenous Chupacabra , Profane Procession Flip, or Underworld Connections . They're all just very low impact in a 40-life, 4-player format, with the exception of the last two. Profane Procession Flip is just so much more expensive than something like Rise of the Dark Realms , and while you're not the first person I've talked to who seems to think Underworld Connections is an acceptable substitute for Phyrexian Arena , man is it ever worse.
I don't like the rate on Call the Bloodline , either, unless you want to go deeper on a Madness or Reanimator theme, which could work, since you might want Voldaren Pariah Flip, anyway. If you did that, Call to the Netherworld gets back Elenda, Big Game Hunter is a nice replacement for Banewhip Punisher , Bishop of Rebirth could be decent, and bigger vamps like Nirkana Revenant , Patron of the Vein , Necropolis Regent , Guul Draz Overseer , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , and Butcher of Malakir become much more attractive. That would require a lot of changes, though. You could keep Profane Procession Flip and get a lot more out of Crypt of Agadeem that way, though, so maybe don't rule it out.
