Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Discussion

Yacube on Why use your hand if you got a library?

This is a super promising build!! I would like to make a few recommendations though. First and foremost, you have too many big drops. They are all really good, but there will be a time during the game when you will won't be able to get any value off of your creatures because they will all be moderately expensive. I would recommend making the average CMC a little lower. Cards like Coiling Oracle and Courser of Kruphix are lower costed, fit in with your top of the library theme, and also work better with a ramp/value based strategy than cards like Master Biomancer and Murkfield Leige. Also, I'd add in a few copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Essentially, it can only help you. All of your creatures except Glen Elendra Archmage are green, and Nkythos can turbo out a number of your value generators turns before they would normally come out. Also note that Nykthos is incredible with Arbor Elf + Utopia Sprawl .

All in all: love this deck, easy +1 from me.

Cafelattis on vampires NEED HELP!!!

If you are trying to make this competitive and if you have the money Bloodghast is right on the money, just sack it and get counters with aristocrat and then return it. I also think that Vampire Nighthawk is better than Gifted Aetherborn just because of the flying, which is so important in comp. Cut down Bishop's Soldier and add Gatekeeper of Malakir, such a better card. One of the thing you need to think about is the competitive advantage that this tride has over other tribes. One such advantage is Vampire Nocturnus, he is a must in this deck, he is so incredibly powerful. And with him comes the other part, maybe consider making this a mono black competitive deck, and by doing so you can add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to get some devotion. The Sorins are nice but competitive is usually very fast so you wont really have a chance of utilizing him. Also, cut down of Drana, four of her seems a bit excessive. Maybe add or upgrade some for your removal package, Dismember, Fatal Push and even Victim of Night might work in this deck. I hope this helps and good luck.

Without Cradle, Crop Rotation and Sylvan Scrying lose some value but if you also still have lands like Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Ancient Tomb, Cavern of Souls, and Strip Mine, you can still get enough utility to run them.

Funkydiscogod on A Simple Case of Extortion

Ghostly Prison is a modern staple for preventing opponent attacks.

I can't think of very many good ways in modern to get enough mana to extort. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx might be the best way to create tons of mana for use in extorting. Things like Whitemane Lion with Oketra's Monument can give plenty of extortion triggers. In black, the options are much more limited, since Bontu's Monument isn't as good, but Sedraxis Alchemist looks like the only one that can bounce off the battlefield. Two Pit Keeper or Cadaver Imp can do it if you have a a sacrifice outlet on hand to keep the graveyard going. Relying on the graveyard in modern is dangerous.

Maybe Extraplanar Lens, Crypt Ghast, Liliana of the Dark Realms, Nirkana Revenant can help produce mana for extortion?

I don't know, I'm just trying to think of the best way to extort.

Since Boros reckoner and Furnace of Rath are high in devotion, why not try going with Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx?

Hmmm... how about x2 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx to ramp into an Army of the Damned? Honestly you could drop 2 swamps and 1 other thing. Also from my experience, Curse of Shallow Graves has been amazing. I run 4 in my old zombie deck and it did some serious work with Attrition on the field. I also run Liliana's Reaver and theres good synergy with Attrition there too (Gravecrawler and Attrition is good too).

As for Stromgald Crusader, he could actually be a good finisher for your deck if you run Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Give him flying and then just jump over your opponent's stuff and hit for a bunch because you've got all that sweet devotion mana.

Noxious Ghoul is a beast too, if you run Endless Ranks of the Dead, he wrecks the board every turn.

Other fun zombie cards... Zombie Apocalypse, Corpse Harvester, Diregraf Colossus, and Zombie Master.
