Olivia's Bloodsworn Discussion

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.

Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.

Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:

You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.

Shared Animosity and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are two expensive price, but powerful cards with Vamps and Edgar.


Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice deck, tons of great cards here :)

There's a lot of one drops here which is good, but it's deceiving because there's only five one drop Vamps. Two drops are the same, there's only six two drop Vamps. A total of 11 one and two drop Vamps is not enough for aggro. Consider more early game Vamps?

In multiplayer Commander aggro is difficult to play because you don't have to just kill one opponent you have to kill three with 40 life each. Because of this playing more cards that can damage all opponents at once gives you more reach. Cards like Impact Tremors , Throne of the God-Pharaoh , Zulaport Cutthroat and Price of Progress are low CMC cards that can add a lot of reach. Cutthroat is not a Vamp, but he punishes each opponent when a board wipe or removal happens. Mass Hysteria with haste and Blind Obedience making opponents creatures ETB tapped are low CMC cards that can increase your aggression. Obedience's extort is also reach.

For the manabase Pain lands and Rainbow lands are better than Filter lands and Scry lands because of one drops. Command Tower , Mana Confluence , Caves of Koilos , Battlefield Forge , Sulfurous Springs are helpful with one drops. The Scry lands ETB tapped which is not what you want with aggro. There's not enough basic lands to support Smoldering Marsh; it's consistently going to ETB tapped. It looks like you can afford just about any land so no reason to play any lands that ETB tapped.

There's only 34 black cards here compared to 65 nonblack cards this makes Vampire Nocturnus unreliable and your four drop needs to do a lot and be reliable. Top and Rack do help with Nocturnus, but this is too slow especially when you already have Bloodline Keeper who you don't have to jump through hoops to use. Exquisite Blood , Merciless Eviction and Kindred Dominance are good cards, but not with aggro. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Heirloom Blade and Mortify are also good cards, but lackluster here compared to the all the other cards.

I have more advice, but I'll stop now. Good luck with your deck.

Any thoughts about some of these? Bloodhusk Ritualist (if pox is viable in commons only idk these are what i found in my search for a first pauper commander deck), Zulaport Cutthroat , Deathforge Shaman , Viashino Slaughtermaster , Curious Homunculus  Flip (monoblue tempo/control could be awesome with this), Olivia's Bloodsworn .

Hey, saw that you're looking for help.

In my opinion the Vampiric Bloodlust precon doesn't showcase Edgar's best ability which is eminence from the Command Zone. You want to take advantage of this with low mana cost Vampires, mostly one/two/three drops. With eminence you want to swarm the board fast with Vampires because each low mana cost Vamp you cast gives you 1/1 Vamp token. Eminence lets you establish an army of Vamps much faster if you're casting one and two drop Vamps.

I'm suggesting for you to consider completely changing the strategy of your deck? Reduce the avg. CMC which is currently high at 3.7, make it so you can play a lot more Vamps faster. Use Sanctum Seeker , Malakir Bloodwitch and Edgar as the top end Vampires and cut most of the rest. These three benefit a lot, can do a ton of damage with big armies of Vamps. For upgrades to the precon consider starting by add all the good one drop and two drop budget Vamps?

Budget Vamps ($2 or less each) to consider adding:

Can add all these cards for about $11.


In all Commander deck builds lands that can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped should be priority. Don't be afraid of including more basic lands instead of lands that ETB tapped. Budget lands to consider:

Can add all these lands for about $17.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Can add the rest of these cards for about $12. Total price of suggested upgrades is about $40.


I'm suggesting to make a lot of changes by cutting a large number of high mana cost cards replacing them with low mana cost cards especially Vampires. Except the lands most of the cards I'm suggesting to cut are good cards, but most have high mana costs. Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Boros Guildgate
  • Akoum Refuge
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Stone Quarry
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Kabira Crossroads
  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Cinder Barrens
  • Anowon, the Ruin Sage
  • Blood Baron of Vizkopa
  • Bloodline Necromancer
  • Bloodsworn Steward
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Crimson Honor Guard
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Heir of Falkenrath
  • Licia, Sanguine Tribune
  • Mathas, Fiend Seeker
  • Olivia Voldaren
  • Patron of the Vein
  • Sangromancer
  • Skeletal Vampire
  • Skymarch Bloodletter
  • Vein Drinker
  • Black Market
  • Kindred Boon
  • Alms of the Vein
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Blood Divination
  • Consuming Vapors
  • Kindred Charge
  • Syphon Mind
  • Fell the Mighty
  • Well of Lost Dreams
  • Worn Powerstone

If you like these suggestions, or have any questions I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.

Seems like a decent list, Rakdos unusally isnt my forte but here we go:

Bloodtracker - benefits your board and keeps up the sweet black card draw too!

Olivia's Bloodsworn - again benefits the board

Torment of Hailfire - good in 1v1 really shines in a full pod

Phyrexian Arena - Sweet black card draw

Exquisite Blood - goes infinite with Sanguine Bond

Good luck! :)

Hey, this is a good start, but consider being even more aggressive with Vamps and eminence?

One drop Vamps are pretty important to the strategy with eminence, but the manabase here can't support them very well. Consider more lands that can ETB untapped turn one especially to make black mana for Vamps?


Consider more one drop Vamps?

Consider more two drop Vamps?


Other cards to consider:

If you like some of these suggestions then I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

Padbras Well since your going for a more aggro approach, I would cut out the Call the Bloodline since it can be slow and is better suited for a tokens approach. I have a deck similar to this and was never able to make Avacyn's Judgment work since it requires quite a bit of mana to really be effective, so I would cut those as well. Not sure how good Incorrigible Youths, Olivia's Bloodsworn and Furyblade Vampire have been for you, but you might look at cutting some of them.

You should really think about adding a 4th Falkenrath Gorger as well, since giving all your vampires Madness is something you want to do every game. Being able to string Falkenrath Gorger into Stromkirk Condemned and Madnessing in Stromkirk Captain on turn three while attacking for 8 First Strike damage can really put you ahead and possibly set you up for a turn 4 win.

Also Unclaimed Territory is a relatively cheap way to fix your mana base.

Since the majority of cards in your deck are black, I suggest Vampire Nocturnus, while the buff is conditional it's very strong and fairly consistent, especially with any draw/scry effects.

Tithe Drinker and Olivia's Bloodsworn can be surprisingly effective, especially if you get them out early.

Blasphemous Act and Vandalblast can be effectively combined into Merciless Eviction.

Crackling Doom is really strong. Also, Blood Tribute. Blast 'em.

Legion's Landing could be put in maybe in place of a plains or something, since it flips into a land so easily? Also Radiant Destiny is good, especially once you get the vigilance, which isn't hard to do with the tokens.

Sorin Markov, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are all strong additions, and cool flavor because your commander is already his granddad :P

Really cool deck, check out mine! ==> Russian Vampire Mafia
