Ob Nixilis Reignited Discussion
1 day ago
I suppose I have 2 different Recommendations. If you want to hang with the atraxa counters on creatures I might recommend Herald of Secret Streams to get your big guys past those pesky blockers.
My favorite thing to do with atraxa is to play planeswalker superfriends. Proliferating and Ulting folks like Dovin Baan, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets Teferi, Temporal Archmage Ob Nixilis Reignited and so forth (Think Mean Emblems) can be incredibly fun.

For the same reason I would cut Ob Nixilis Reignited. At 5 CMC it doesn't usually do enough. Most of the time, it will draw you a card or takes care of a creature before it dies, which is not great for that cost. Having to do it at sorcery speed doesn't help.
Consider adding Mindslicer. It can be back-breaking and really seal the deal.

@NiTRoBoX personally though I feel like the deck can be optimised. Drana's Emissary for example is pretty meh, especially how I don't see a sac engine, along with Grave Pact when you already have an Attrition.
This can be fixed with a Skullclamp and an Ashnod's Altar. Both of them are pretty insane EDH staples, and the Clamp can get you a lot of value off of the 1/1s Edgar makes, while the Altar gives you access to Rout which I believe is better than Merciless Eviction (I assume you'd want those vampires back since you're playing reanimator cards) Utter End can also be replaced with a Path or Swords to Plowshares.
This one is purely personal preference, but I like Coat of Arms much more than DoD jus because it gives the instant board buff that can win games.
Also (and this is pretty big) I feel like your deck isn't very focussed on Vampire synergy. For example, what is Sorin, Grim Nemesis doing in here when he only synergises with his ultimate? You can replace him w Ob Nixilis Reignited for the card draw and removal utility. Westvale Abbey Flip is another one. I get that the Demon is really cool and it's just a land so you can probably keep it, but it feels really out of place. Also, Contagion Engine just feels out of place too. The proliferate effect is not worth the mana cost and the 4 mana each turn imo.

Tezzeret the Schemer is there for a couple of reasons:
It can help to mitigate the effect of Bontu's Last Reckoning.
It also provides a way to ramp into Torrential Gearhulk and allow more than one spell to be cast a bit earlier.
It's ultimate provides another win con.
It's kind of an "Argy" card - a bit outside the box. If it works, it will be brilliant. If it doesn't, I will replace it.
Yahenni's Expertise won't clear the board if Creatures have gotten too large.
Does that change your feedback?

So I copied your deck and fiddled with it until I could get it under 100$ and I know this sounds crazy but I came to the conclusion of cutting Nykthos. You don't have anything huge (your curve ends at 5) and you have no mana sinks so I'm not sure it would be worth it. I also took out the fatal push since you can trigger revolt with fetches and took out the 1 Kalitas, the Gravecrawlers, and 3 Persecutor's since they could become a problem you cant deal with. This put me a decent amount under 100$ but instead of squeezing in 1-2 Nykthos I put in other powerful creatures. I made the 1 drop Vampire Lacerator since it's not 5$ and is still very powerfull. You could also use something like Bloodsoaked Champion. I added 4 Geralf's Messenger which I think are a better investment for mono black devotion than Nykthos in a deck that has a low curve. lastly I added 2 Ob Nixilis Reignited which serves the purpose of Arenas 3 and 4 as well as removal and win condition and went the full 4 Gifted Aetherborn. Hope this helps!

So an edit for rotation:

Han4x, I've been shuffling around my lands a lot. I tested out 24 at the last FNM and granted, it was only 4 rounds of play, but I flooded nearly half of my games. I'm debating between 22 and 23 myself, I just need to do some more testing. I am going to go up to 6 swamps for 1 more basic, at the very least. My personal experience says Faithless Looting messes with the normal math for land count, but I'm not sure how much it actually effects it.
If I did add in Ob Nixilis Reignited to your deck, it would probably be in place of one Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. That is mainly depending on your meta. My local meta doesn't have as many creature decks, so Kalitas doesn't do much work for me maindeck. However, if he does work in your deck, then he may very well provide more advantage over time than Ob Nixilis Reignited, and you're gaining life as opposed to losing life.
As far as Night's Whisper goes, I found I was often happy to play it when I drew it, and missed it when I removed it, but it's your call in the end. With the control variant, the curve is higher than the Midrange Rakdos Moon, so we can't run Dark Confidant but I like having at least a little card draw that isn't just Faithless Looting.

severininfurs, thanks for the upvote! I get your point, but actually so far i haven't faced this kind of problem, still, Night's Whisper looks like a solid choice for the deck, maybe i will try it out in the future. I never thought about Ob Nixilis Reignited, but maybe with him the mana curve will get too high, i think. And talking about it, since you even run a 6 drop, don't you think it's better to run this archetype with 23 lands beeing 5 of them swamps?
