Pulse Tracker Discussion

Raime on Custom Nicol Bolas (Archenemy: Nicol Bolas)

TheWallinator74, the reason i've removed my Blood Tyrant from the box was exactly what you typed. He was growing too much on each game that i had him on the field and it started to get boring to my opponents. I'll take a look at Pulse Tracker and Infectious Horror.

I'll take a look on the "sweepers" as well but i'll replace Exsanguinate for Blood Tithe. I would love to put the God-Pharaoh in place of the Deciever but he's really expensive in my country at the moment so for now the Deciever shall be the walker card of this deck.

Lastly, this deck didn't have any mana problems in the matches i've played so i see no need to put other lands on it for now. Thanks a lot for the suggestions.

An excellent creature you don't have is Blood Tyrant. He can get massive so quickly in this format, and losing one life every turn shouldn't be a big deal to you. I'm also personally a fan of Guttersnipe and Infectious Horror, though Pulse Tracker and Mardu Shadowspear achieve a smaller version of that ability if you want cheaper bodies.

Two spells you might consider for the deck are Cyclonic Rift and Mizzium Mortars. Their versatility in being both spot removal and boardwipes can be invaluable depending on the current boardstate. Also, Exsanguinate. It's a potentially game-ending spell on its own, being able to bring you back from the brink or being the finishing touch on a curbstomp victory. You might also want to upgrade Bolas to his God-Pharaoh card. Deceiver's +3 is not as useful as you may think.

As far as lands go, I like both Sunken Hollow and Smoldering Marsh. Their untap clause can be useful in three colors since they don't specify what kind of basics you need.

How about Gonti's Machinations, Tattered Mummy, Thornbow Archer, or Pulse Tracker (over lands)? They're more black cards to pitch to Soul Spike, and they can deal consistent "ping" damage to close out the game.

Gonna go out on a limb and say Liliana of the Veil is just going to be an expensive Doom Blade most of the time due to her not getting her ult off. And without even having Red Madness Vampires or a few grave-based cards (Excluding Driver of the Dead) to take advantage of her +1 Discard effect, it could be hard to even get her to 6 Loyalty without her being targeted. I'd also look at some 1 drops like Guul Draz Vampire, Pulse Tracker, and/or Shadow Alley Denizen so you can have some immediate pressure (Excluding Thoughtseize).

If you really want to include a Planeswalker though, Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip/Liliana, Defiant Necromancer  Flip or Ob Nixilis of the Black Oath might be good includes. On flip, Liliana gives you a zombie token and her -X ability can return a desired creature back to the field first turn (Plus she can be flipped by any way your creature dies, so sac away). Ob Nixilis -3 can summon a 5/5 flying demon when he comes out, at only the cost of 2 life. These give different effects though, whereas Liliana of the Veil fits a very specific niche of sacriifcing getting around specific abilities and isn't always important. not to mention if they have multiple creatures they can just sac the least important one.

It's always nice to see a mono black Vampire list. I used to run one myself before I repurposed the deck into others, and seeing them brings nostalgia. Out of curiosity, have you considered running B/R for the deck to be better competitively, or are you certain that you want this to be a strictly mono black build? Regardless, just a couple thoughts.

Consider running more 1 CMC cards to give yourself turn 1 plays. Whether it be more removal, more buffing/utility spells, or more creatures, Vampires as a tribe prefer aggressive builds that start quickly.

Some stragglers to consider replacing include Child of Night and Vampire's Bite.

Also, wanted to point out that I love the synergy with Quag Vampires and Contaminated Ground.

Got a chance to test the deck in a casual FNM event, and it did fairly well, getting me in third place out of eight against some pretty good decks (I don't have all the cards I need yet, so I put 4x Pulse Tracker in the place of 1 Blade of the Bloodchief, 1 Bloodghast, 1 Viscera Seer and 1 Vampire Nighthawk. Pulse Tracker actually appeared to do really well). From this I didn't see much action concerning the sideboard, so maybe there could be some changes to it so it can play better.

Oh I forgot to mention it befor, but you might be interested in either Sanguine Bond or Vizkopa Guildmage.

Here are what i think are the weaker cards in your deck. I'm not saying that everything I don't mention is ideal or that the ones i'm suggesting cutting are awful but this is where i'd personally start if I was trimming my own deck as possible cards to consider cutting:

Cliffside Lookout: This card seems a bit out of place. If you want a 1-drop ally Hada Freeblade is better. If you want to focus more on life gain, Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, or Serra Ascendant would be a better fit.

Angel of Renewal/Conclave Phalanx: While they can gain you some life, they cost a bit more mana than i'd like. I feel that for 6 mana Sorin, Grim Nemesis is a better threat as it can still gain you life while taking down a creature the turn it comes into play or draw you some cards. Either way 6 mana is still a lot so be careful you don't but too many high cmc spells in the deck. Conclave is a bit better since it has convoke but i still don't think it does enough.

Court Street Denizen: In a two color deck you will still get some value out of this but I prefer cards like Gideon's Lawkeeper/Goldmeadow Harrier as you can tap them on your opponents "Declare Attackers" step to prevent them from attacking you, and they remain tapped until their next turn meaning they can't block either.

Pulse Tracker: This is a pretty aggressive card for your deck. Also even if they play a 1/2, you can't attack safely into them anymore.

Landbind Ritual: A 5 mana spell that doesnt affect the board and only gains you life is not where you want to be. Rest for the Weary is usually more efficient.

Eliminate the Competition: I'd rather just run Crux of Fate, Wrath of God. (Damnation is also a card but it's not exactly wallet friendly)

Curse of the Forsaken: Good in multiplayer games but in 1v1 it's not ideal.

Maybe take out a Bogbrew Witch or two for that matter for 2 more Mortician Beetle. Then i would take out 2 Ultimate Price to put in 2 more Smallpox. I would keep other 2 drop kills spells like Ultimate Price and Kiku's Shadow in your sideboard along with Pulse Tracker and i wouldn't run Thoughtpicker Witch your Trepanation Blade is better in my opinion! <3
