Oh snap. Thanks for your ideas!! You're right about Animate Dead. I thought that was in here. That's fixed. And I like Nezumi Graverobber-it's a mana sink and the flip would work pretty well in my meta. (The graveyard shenanigans are intense). I love Emeria, The Sky Ruin but I've played it in a bunch of decks and never been able to hit that Plains sweet spot so I ended up taking it out. After play testing I'll probably fool around with the mana base again.

For recurring Lurrus there's Apprentice Necromancer, Eternal Taskmaster the Nezumi Graverobber (if he's flipped and thank you! he's doing double duty already), Phyrexian Reclamation and then I added in Omen of the Dead and Unburial Rites. I like those over some of the other reanimate spells because Omen of the Dead is recurrable and Unburial Rites you can cast twice. But I do have an Unearth floating around I can work in after some play testing.

Looks cool,
some more ideas for your maybeboard: i like the recursion options Trading Post, Phyrexian Reclamation.
also i dont know if you are running any specific combos or if you are avoiding tutors but seems like Unwinding Clock is powerful enough that you would like to search for it - Fabricate and Tezzeret the Seeker and Whir of Invention are all playable

Hey, very good upgrade of the precon. You don't really need to change anything for this deck to be a winner. However this deck is not aggro, it's midrange since it has 24 cards 4 CMC or higher. That's too many if you want to play aggro Vamps. Something to consider for aggro is cutting some high CMC Vamps/cards for more low CMC Vamps/cards and replacing some lands that can ETB tapped with ones that don't.

Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

MindAblaze on Edgar markov Drain and Gain

This deck feels like it’s trying to do a lot of different things. I ran a couple of sample hands and I saw some glimmers, but also like it runs out of gas. Toxic Deluge felt counter productive when you’re not getting stuff back often or drawing a lot of cards. Although if you’re on your heels I see the benefit.

One hand I did get Phyrexian Reclamation and a sac outlet. But I also got Oathsworn Vampire, Purphoros and Exquisite Blood, so that line took precedence. I love me some Olivia Voldaren and Mirri the Cursed but I drew them both in my test hands and they’re just so underwhelming without a shell that supports them.

Like I said, some nice glimmers with a solid foundation, but I think the problem with vampire creatures is they don’t have much to unite them other than Edgar himself. The madness line of play doesn’t lend itself to this deck very well though, so drain and gain it is, but then you’re not really synergizing with Edgar. Other than etb triggers and swinging away with tokens.

Cruel Celebrant could fit here, and Malakir Bloodwitch. I’m not a big fan of Vampiric Rites but I have very high expectations of that role, I’d rather just see Dusk Legion Zealot and a way to return him to hand after sacrificing him. But again, that’s just me. I was excited about vampiric rites at first but it never did enough in the environments I’ve played it in. Maybe Stensia Masquerade and Angrath, Captain of Chaos to make your dudes harder to block?

I have a lot of thoughts, and a lot of potential directions to go. Even Call the Bloodline and Bloodline Necromancer seem interesting. A deck built with Olivia, Mobilized for War and Anje Falkenrath as lieutenants and a madness/reanimating subtheme could be fun. Strong? I dunno though.

What do you think?

Ok multimedia - work is done, time for some brewin'!

For $25 you can make big upgrades to the manabase.

I added all of those, but unsure what to remove. If I had to swap out 4 other lands:

Consider a few more low CMC creatures who have interaction with Karlov?

  • Suture Priest - This was a hard cut for me as it does combo really well with Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, what do you suggest removing in its place?
  • Mother of Runes - Decided to cut this based on having other protection but happy to hear suggestions
  • Vizkopa Guildmage - He's part of my combo/loop category there, but again had to trim one card from all areas to keep it balanced.
  • Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim - At first I was going to skip her, but as you mentioned below with Phyrexian Reclamation, she's OP with her ability to Sac Karlov + exile non-land permanents. Suggestions on what to remove to fit her in? (She's on Maybeboard right now)

Walking Ballista with Heliod, Sun-Crowned and Phyrexian Reclamation is a combo with cards that are individually better vs Exquisite Blood

Hmmmm I am on the fence here too. I did have Ballista, and took it to cut some costs, and I see that if Exquisite is out, it has so much value and can trigger so many times in EDH. Do you have some good scenarios outside of those two cards? And what would come out for it if I wanted to keep both eventually? I can see how it can just pop-off and get huge though...

Phyrexian Reclamation can help to keep Karlov out of the Command Zone since you can recur him and cast him from your hand instead of the Zone.

Agreed, I actually didn't know you can opt to let your Commander hit the Graveyard, so I have added Phyrexian Reclamation but not sure what I can remove to fit it in? Gotta remember that Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord has a similar ability to retrieve from Graveyards too. One other thing I added which I need feedback on is combining Curse of Fool's Wisdom with Geier Reach Sanitarium - If this isn't worth it, it saves 2 card slots. For now I just removed a swamp.

Another expensive price combo option is Necropotence which is a combo with Bolas's Citadel. Necro can exile lands on the top of your library to allow you to keep casting cards with Citadel.

This one of the ones I do see value in, but I feel like it will overly complicate the deck and the mechanic doesn't appeal to me as much. I might bench this as a future upgrade or potential modification for now, and try use it with Krrik's Phyrexian mana ability, Aetherflux and Serra Ascendant.

Ruin Raider and Dark Tutelage are cards to consider adding since they're repeatable draw sources for no mana cost and give you value using life. Swords to Plowshares and Generous Gift are budget removal spell upgrades.

  • Ruin Raider / Dark Tutelage - these appeal to me but I am very stuck on what I can take out for these.

  • Swords to Plowshares - although I see how it can be useful, I think the removals I have work better. Is there a way to use this with Karlov but bounce him to anywhere EXCEPT exile?

  • Generous Gift - I already have cheap removals, so I might pass here unless there's other ways I can save some $?

I haven't given any suggestions of cards to consider cutting. I can in another comment if you would like?

I would LOVE this! That's the hardest part!

Hey, currently your deck doesn't have an official Commander. In the deck editor after 1x Karlov of the Ghost Council text put the CMDR tag.

1x Karlov of the Ghost Council *CMDR*

Doing this shows Karlov card in the deck list and officially makes Karlov the Commander of your deck. I also suggest turning off the competitive meter. Which can be done in the deck editor by unchecking show competitive meter. The meter is not an accurate gage of how competitive your deck is. It's currently at 22% competitive which if it was accurate is not good, but it being false low is a distraction right now for your deck building. The lands in the manabase are a big reason for the low % of competitive.


I like your version of Karlov and you've decided to go the extort direction which is unique, good choice.

The first thing I do when building budget decks is allocate enough of the budget for good lands in the manabase. Sometimes this requires using more of the budget than I would like, but I figure I need good lands to actually consistently cast cards. For $25 you can make big upgrades to the manabase. Dual lands that can ETB untapped are wanted with Karlov because he's a two drop and you want to be able to consistently curve white one drop into white/black Karlov which will be difficult without more good dual lands.

Consider a few more low CMC creatures who have interaction with Karlov?


I see Exquisite Blood and if you're wanting to add an expensive price card for a combo then Walking Ballista with Heliod, Sun-Crowned is a combo with cards that are individually better. In my opinion Exquisite is not worth $32 and Ballista can have many more scenarios where it's good outside of the combo. Ballista can also be more easily recurred with Phyrexian Reclamation which is in the Mystery Booster set, that version is $1. Good source of repeatable value using life for some resiliency.

Reclamation can help to keep Karlov out of the Command Zone since you can recur him and cast him from your hand instead of the Zone. Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim + Karlov is good with Reclamation and life gain being able to recur the creature, Karlov, you sac. Karlov can exile creatures with his ability, but Ayli as long as you have 50 life can exile a nonland permanent which as a repeatable ability is powerful in multiplayer Commander.

Another expensive price combo option is Necropotence which is a combo with Bolas's Citadel. Necro can exile lands on the top of your library to allow you to keep casting cards with Citadel. Necro is a great way to use life for value and is one of the best sources of repeatable pseudo draw in Commander. It's definitely worth $17, it's good with Krrik's Phyrexian mana ability and Aetherflux. For $32 instead of Exquisite you could get Necro and dual lands or Serra Ascendant. Ascendant is a one drop 6/6 flying/lifelink creature in 40 starting life Commander.

Ruin Raider and Dark Tutelage are cards to consider adding since they're repeatable draw sources for no mana cost and give you value using life. Swords to Plowshares and Generous Gift are budget removal spell upgrades.

I haven't given any suggestions of cards to consider cutting. I can in another comment if you would like?

Good luck with your deck.
