Patriarch's Bidding Discussion

Reconnaissance, always going to be one of the more broken cards in any deck that wants to attack.

Other than that, my thoughts run in 2 main areas:

Combat/play enhancements:
Patriarch's Bidding
Cryptic Gateway
Cover of Darkness
Mirror Entity
Taurean Mauler
Shared Animosity

Defend your army:
Faith's Reward
Rootborn Defenses
Boros Charm
etc, etc.

Your strategy of using his eminence and then buff sounds great! I'm working on a version of the same strategy. Check out Hyper Markov and let me know your thoughts on the differences and if it has the efficiency and explosiveness you are looking for!

You could sub out from it Patriarch's Bidding and Coat of Arms from Hyper Markov if those aren't going to work for you against those other tribal decks. With 51 vampire creatures, low cmc, and Edgar's eminence though you should have more tribal creatures than most opponents.

usaDiabetic I've updated the description. 30-35 lands is as trim as it can go, haha!

It is true that once there are more than 3 opponents this kind of strategy faces greater opposition. I've played most often with 1-4 opponents but 4, 5, or more opponents would be trouble!

To be fair to the deck, the card draw of Herald's Horn, Skullclamp, The Immortal Sun, Vanquisher's Banner, Asylum Visitor, Champion of Dusk, Dusk Legion Zealot, Forerunner of the Legion, Twilight Prophet, Dark Prophecy, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena and reanimation of Victimize, Patriarch's Bidding, Living Death, Bloodline Necromancer help sustain after board wipes.

Enough creatures have excellent effects as well to benefit from being knocked out including Kheru Bloodsucker, Paladin of Atonement, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Kalastria Highborn, Pawn of Ulamog, Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Bloodghast, Oathsworn Vampire, Viscera Seer, Blood Artist, and Falkenrath Noble.

And for disruption/removal there's New Blood, The Immortal Sun, Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Vampire Hexmage, Thief of Blood, Patron of the Vein, Captivating Vampire, Bloodhusk Ritualist, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Guul Draz Assassin, and Bishop of Binding.

I'm open to suggestion though. Any other removal options you might recommend?

This looks pretty good! I'm also going at the Hyper Markov strategy. Would you rather have the tutors or more vampires? Would you consider mass creature return to the board with Victimize, Patriarch's Bidding, or Living Death? Do you prefer mana ramp or more low cmc vampires? Looks like we've got different styles but could learn from each other; let me know how it goes with your deck!

nephiroth Also since you are making everything ninjas, I think Kindred Dominance and Patriarch's Bidding would be a nice complement. other than that +1 upvote, curious to know how fun the deck is when set is release!

you can use Scion of the Ur-Dragon as your commander to fuel the grave for Patriarch's Bidding.
