Cathar's Crusade and Door of Destinies should be replaced with Reconnaissance and Shared Animosity . Crusade and Door do nothing when they come down, cost a ton of mana in aggro, and need gas to get them to do anything.

I'd also replace your one-time draw like read the bones and damnable pact with Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Twilight Prophet .

I think u got a similar story:

Back when I first started playing magic, specifically edh, I ran a Anafenza, the Foremost +1/+1 counters deck. One time, I was playing against a friend's super proxied deck. When I say super proxied, I mean it had about 500-600$ worth of cards proxied. The best of the best.

Everytime I laid down a threat, he killed it. Everytime I got a swing in, he managed to destroy it right afterwards or before. This happened up until turn 30 or so, a full hour in of back and forth. My board had about 5 tokens with +1/+1 counters on them and a High Sentinels of Arashin with 4 +1/+1 counters on it. His board had 30 zombie tokens which just entered the battlefield. He was at 10 life (he used Necropotence since pretty much the beginning of the game) and I was at 5.

So I was worried I was gonna lose cause next turn he could swing at me and kill me when I noticed something. I asked "Do you have any fliers?" Before swinging with my Sentinels.

Don't give up, swing with your High Sentinels.

All around, you have a pretty solid deck that's very resilient, but in your post, you wanted to regard it as a cEDH deck. Unfortunately, to qualify it as a cEDH deck perse, you'd have to go more along this route: Nath of the STAX-Leaf | cEDH | Primer.

Now, this isn't my attempt to be harsh, just to inform. I had a harsh reality when I, in my head thought that my Teysa deck was cEDH when I was horribly wrong and all I had was a modular/cluttered combo deck.

Your deck is in no way bad, I just believe some people have misconceptions over what cEDH is. What I can do for you without radically changing the deck is give you a better card suggestion for some slots and what that slot is trying to do.

  1. Eyeblight's Ending -> Snuff Out : Free is always better. Also a prevalent motif in cEDH

  2. Blightsoil Druid -> Heart Warden : Same cost this one can draw in a pinch

  3. Phyrexian Arena -> Necropotence : See more of your deck

There's a bunch of other cards I think you should include, but I don't want you to have to revamp your whole deck, so here are my suggestions:

  1. Beast Whisperer
  2. Priest of Titania
  3. Earthcraft
  4. Nature's Claim
  5. Skullclamp
  6. Dismember
  7. Ezuri, Renegade Leader

To be more specific about why I don’t run Cavern of Souls and Unclaimed Territory :

They interfere with casting Necropotence , the mana cost of which is the sole reason we can’t go bananas with the nonblack utility lands.

Even if I didn’t run enough tutor to see necropotence a lot, I still wouldn’t run unclaimed territory. The fixing isn’t much more helpful than a basic swamp since our vampires are heavily black, so its probably not worth being colorless sometimes and being yet another nonbasic. I think the second ability on cavern makes it better than a swamp even though our deck runs so few vamps worth countering. I would run it if not for necropotence.

Made some changes before playtesting:

Out:

Necropotence ;Discarding to the grave is quite important in this deck so I figured it had to go.

Evolution Sage ; I cant see this ever being good. Chandra, Torch of Defiance and Liliana of the Veil will probably soon follow

In:

Erebos, God of the Dead ; Replacement for Necropotence , also negates the lifegain from all the Aetherflux Reservoir running around and it's indestructible to boot.

Zuran Orb ; Mostly to mitigate the lifeloss from fetches, shocks, card draw, removal and mana rocks. Also gets Dakmor Salvage back in the grave and lets me draw cards from The Gitrog Monster

Daedalus19876 I will look at the tapped land situation and add another 2cmc rock too. Probably Fellwar Stone but I also like MindStone and even Thought Vessel is tempting because then I don't have to discard my Necropotence cards but that's probably a trap and one of the first 2 is better.

I will say it's not a very fast meta generally.

One more thing. Do you rate Animation Module in this deck?

Cut Oathsworn Vampire for Cruel Celebrant . Don’t see myself recasting oathsworn very often and something had to go.

Cleaned up the manabase. I ran too many colorless utility lands because the deck is primarily black. However this made it too hard to cast Necropotence or cast multiple cards.

Out: Vault of the Archangel , Cavern of Souls

In: 2 basic swamps

I never use vault and am never happy to draw it. Casting cards is always better. Vault has slight value as a threat but is usually no better than Wastes .

Cavern is Command Tower about 2/3 of the time, but it can really cause problems when it counts, which is why I never ran Unclaimed Territory . The uncounterable creatures ability is not very helpful as our vampires are mostly trash and we would still get a token anyway. Some vampires are worth countering but aside from Champion of Dusk I would actually prefer they counter a vampire since that increases the odds of resolving something important later on.

You're a bit high on your avg. cmc for aggro (closer to 3 to 3.3 will work much faster), you might want a few more pieces of removal and ramp, a lot more draw, and different finishers. What kinda budget are you working with?

Shared Animosity , Reconnaissance (look up the rulings, this is one of the best finishers in this deck), Swords to Plowshares , Austere Command , Sol Ring , Boros Signet , Rakdos Signet , Orzhov Signet , Fellwar Stone , Diabolic Intent , Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Herald's Horn , Greed , and Enlightened Tutor to search up your draw engines.

In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires.
