Pulse Tracker Discussion

Okay, I guess the next place to start is by going over the various archetypes for vampires in modern. They are a pretty flexible tribe, so there are lots of directions you can take them. Aggro, midrange, control, and even combo-esque strategies are pretty viable avenues to explore.All the lists are pretty much comprised of the following creatures depending on which direction you want to go: Bloodghast, Vampire Nocturnus, Stromkirk Captain, Stromkirk Noble, Captivating Vampire, Shadow Alley Denizen, Pulse Tracker, Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn (AKA Vampire Nightwalk), Vampire Lacerator, Vampire Cutthroat, Stromkirk Condemned, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Olivia Voldaren, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Insolent Neonate, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Indulgent Aristocrat, Falkenrath Gorger, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Artist, Viscera Seer, Blood Seeker, Asylum Visitor, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and Gatekeeper of Malakir.

Aggro lists generally stay super low to the ground in regards to CMC and include a lot of lords. Given the low CMC. Aether Vial also starts to become very good -- especially since all the lords tend to hang at 3 CMC.

There are multiple routes to midrange. One route is to to try and abuse the madness effect to turn Liliana of the Veil's +1 into a 1 sided effect.

The other is slightly more combo-y. Aristocrats is an interesting archetype that abuses the recursiveness of Bloodghast, the life-loss triggers from Blood Artist, and the instant speed sacrifice effects of Viscera Seer, Bloodthrone Vampire, Falkenrath Aristocrat and Indulgent Aristocrat. I also personally like Reassembling Skeleton, Gravecrawler, Doomed Traveler, and or Bloodsoaked Champion in the list to further be able to abuse the Blood Artist triggers with more sacrifice fodder. White also gives access to things like Rally the Ancestors -- which can be a brutal play to ping for a lot of dmg with Blood Artist triggers.

There is also more traditional midrange which just aims to play threats that if left unanswered -- typically win you the game. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and Olivia Voldaren are all very dangerous cards for your opponent to leave in play, and Gatekeeper of Malakir can be a huge pain given his ability to not only provide a decent body, but also take down an opponent's creature with his kicker cost. Vampire Nighthawk and Gifted Aetherborn are also good for similar reasons. they trade profitably wirh almost any creature and have the benefit of giving you back some life.

There are 3 routes for combo that you can also go -- the first involves Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Intruder Alarm. The second route is Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood + vampire's ability to easily ping for 1 somehow to trigger the combo. The third is Mindcrank or Duskmantle Guildmage + Bloodchief Ascension.

Control would likely play vampires that double as control (Gatekeeper of Malakir, Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn), lots of kill spells and discard, and some planeswalkers.

I can definitely help you refine a list once you have a basic archetype in mind. Right now you seem to be in between aggro and midrange. Which is perfectly fine. You can mix and match a little bit. Devotion, as another user suggested, is also viable -- however vampires do not really have a ton of super good ways to use oodles of mana.

Hey, thanks bro. Dreadbore is defiantly awesome, if I have the money when it comes time I would love to purchase them instead.

Pulse Tracker looks cool as well, I'll defiantly consider him. Thanks man!

Before you purchase the Terminates, I would consider Dreadbore for some plainswalker control as well. For one drops I personally enjoy Pulse Tracker. Good Luck, hope this helps!

Dark Ritual isn't modern legal; you'll either need to replace it with something else, or change your deck label.

Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet is too expensive for modern unless you're using ramp, and Dark Ritual is about to get the axe.

Diabolic Revelation and Diabolic Tutor need to be replaced with removal; unless you're running a specific combo, paying four mana to set up a turn is too much disadvantage.

Overpowered Vampires to consider:

Gatekeeper of Malakir is a removal package on a Vampire body, and costs too little for his ability. Playset needed.

Since you can't rely on Dark Ritual to explode your creatures into play anymore, you're going to need to think about your curve more. Vampire Cutthroat, Viscera Seer, and Pulse Tracker are all very powerful 1-drop Vampires. I would run 4 Trackers, 4-2 Cutthroats, and 2 Seers.

Captivating Vampire needs to be included as a 4-of. I hate that card so much.

In the upcoming set Aether Revolt, there are two Vampires that should catch your attention; Gifted Aetherborn and Yahenni, Undying Partisan.

For your removal suite, probably a mix of Go for the Throat and Doom Blade; maybe split 3-1, or 4 Go for the Throats and sideboard Doom Blade.

Since you're not running any fetchlands, or cards that care about having a Plains or Swamp, you'll either want to swap Godless Shrines for Isolated Chapels if you want to play more aggressively, or Concealed Courtyards if you're playing midrange.

You can probably survive on twenty lands to maximize topdeck value.

Thank you for the comment/suggestion, cplvela0811, I have been considering switching Pulse Tracker out for a different one drop. The main advantage I have with pulse tracker is that I play a lot of multi-player and two headed giants with the friends I play with, I will probably put gorger in the side board if I can't fit him onto the main

Thanks again!

ciao leo sono luca.Stavo guardando il mazzo, secondo me non male, molto veloce ma ha tre difetti principali:1- tutti quegli incanta-creatura ti rendono vulnerabilissimo a rimozioni e pesanti 2x1 o peggio oltre a rendere mooolto prevedibile il tuo gioco e facilitare all' avversario la scelta del bersaglio da esplodere.2- non hai praticamente nessun modo per pescare. Se il tuo avversario ti riesce a contenere per i primi 4-5 turni poi tu finisci il carburante e per lui diventa semplice recuperare il vantaggio. specialmente per mazzi come il the rock del nostro comune nemico matteo.3- molte delle tue creature non sono evasive eccetto il Insolent Neonate (che anche l'unica carta che ti permette di pescare oltretutto)e il Vampire Interloper.

Possibili idee per la soluzione:

1- eliminare tutti gli incanta creatura e sostituirli con istantanei da usare dopo la dichiarazione dei bloccanti per rendere pi imprevedibile il mazzo. Ad esempio Grotesque Mutation, AdreNaline Rush, Uncaged Fury, Otherworldly Outburst, Distemper of the Blood, Expedite, Unnatural Endurance, Borrowed Hostility....in questo modo oltretutto rendi anche molto pi utile Raid Bombardment poich nel momento in cui tu dichiari gli attaccanti le creature non sono pompate e porti a casa uno sfracello di danni (soprattutto se ne hai in molteplice copia).

2- per pescare ci sono molte spell. A mio parere, vista la forte meccanica di follia che fa da linea conduttrice nelle pi recenti incarnazioni del B/R vampire, ti suggerisco di tenere in forte considerazione Tormenting Voice e Cathartic Reunion. L'uso di queste carte ti permette di improntare il deck in modo da rendere vantaggioso l'impiego di cose come Olivia's Dragoon, Bloodmad Vampire, Fiery Temper, Macabre Waltz, Prophetic Ravings, Skirsdag Supplicant e molto altro. altrimenti ci sono i pi classici Sign in Blood e analoghi.

3- La Guul Draz Vampire non mi piace per nulla. fa troppo poco troppo tardi. Belli il Vampire Lacerator e Pulse Tracker.io, qualora decidessi di aumentare la parte di pump/burn spell a velocit istantaneo del deck, ti consiglio Sanguinary Mage.infine come burn spell potrebbe piacerti Galvanic Bombardment si sposa abbastanza bene con lo scartare carte e l'idea di sparare 6 danni a una creatura a velocit istant per un mana rosso sempre stuzzicante. Molto belli Bump in the Night che in un' eventuale deriva follia potresti rimpiazzare con Alms of the Vein

spero che in questo trattato tu trovi qualcosa di utile xD Buona fortuna con il tuo mazzo! Luca

You want fetch lands that can bring into play untapped, such as Bloodstained Mire and Polluted Delta. Victim of night isn't great with Kalitas everywhere. Drown in sorrow to me is a sideboard card. Grasp of darkness is outclassed by Tragic Slip and Dismember. I'd invest in a set of Bloodghast and a single Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, bring Captivating Vampire up to 4. As much as I love Pulse Tracker, I'd just use 4 Lacerators. And a 4th Nocturnus will add a lot of power. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is one of the best creatures in modern right now, I'd try to get 2, though he's expensive.
