Nirkana Revenant Discussion
3 days ago
Blade of the Bloodchief fits great with Kalitas (who, if I recall correctly, is/was the Bloodchief of Ghet). Although creatures your opponents control won't "die" while Kalitas is out, the Zombies you make can serve as fodder to further grow your general. I'd also recommend Rogue's Passage to help your general get through when you need to. Sometimes, you can convert your zombie army into a big power spike for Kalitas, and then take out an opponent with commander damage.

Stuff I'd cut:
Duskborne Skymarcher - not enough impact
Erdwal Ripper - bad
Falkenrath Exterminator bad
Furyblade Vampire good for madness but not for this deck
Havengul Vampire not good enough
Kheru Bloodsucker bad
Licia, Sanguine Tribune only good as commander in a deck built around him. Here it's just bad for 8 mana
Nirkana Revenant not bad but not really that useful either since only about a thrid of your lands are swamps anyways
Voracious Vampire bad
Stuff I'd definitely add:
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodline Keeper Flip
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle
Butcher of Malakir
Shadow Alley Denizen
Stuff I'd consider adding:
Bishop of Binding
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Legion's Landing Flip
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Patron of the Vein
Urge to Feed
Blood Baron of Vizkopa
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Voldaren Pariah Flip
Details as for why I'd add certain cards and cut others I'll give you the next time we get to talk :)

Voldaren Pariah Flip, Nirkana Revenant , Patron of the Vein , Big Game Hunter are great additions, will look to pick these up I think. Tragic Poet is just in there as a reusable way of getting back enchantments, maybe it's unnecessary.
Thanks for the tip on the screen name, didn't realise it would be an issue. And again, thanks for the help.

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.

Drana has been one of my favorite decks to play as of lately. I would recommend a couple cards that increases your mana as Drana is very mana intensive. You can consider cards like Expedition Map to find your Cabal Coffers / Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth quicker. Extraplanar Lens although ricky is a great card to have access to more mana. Nirkana Revenant doubles as another Crypt Ghast as well.
You can check out my version of Drana for more insight!
Feel free to ask for any advice, glad to help!
P.S. also set your deck to EDH/Commander in the edit menu for deck building!

dritchie thank you for the suggestions ! Let me explain why some of these did not make it into my deck,
Necropolis Regent: Same as the above ^
Door of Destinies: 4 mana , No value again in the turn i play it , can be a powerhouse after some turns and many casts but thats not my playstyle.
Thx again for the comment ! really appreciated mate !
