Pulse Tracker Discussion
1 day ago
zephyr_chang how do I go about upvoting the comment you gave? ;)
I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into giving me advice and criticism. It was incredibly helpful and thorough.
I checked online about the the mono-black vampire builds that Tom Ross made and he literally said he was embarrassed about Pulse Tracker and Vampire Lacerator! I had never seen that discussion before so thank you for referring me to it!
To get straight to the point, I took your advice and rearranged the build. I substituted Viscera Seer in for Vampire Lacerator. I took out Indulgent Aristocrat and Captivating Vampire for Bloodghast and 2 more Sign in Blood. I hope this helps the build to be more consistent and more competitive. I wish Bloodghast was cheaper, but there is a reason it is expensive, being as good as it is.
As for the lands, I'm going to leave it the way it is for now, with the next big investment being Marsh Flats since I am a Mardu player through and through.
All in all, and everything considered, what do you think of the build? Is there anything else you would suggest for the sideboard? Thank you again for the dedicated response!

Edgar decks need to be fast. Replace the tapped lands with lands that don't come into play tapped as far as possible. Play lots of small vampires, since Edgar will make them big anyway.
You could probably cut some of the more expensive creatures. Put in cheaper Vampires like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodcrazed Paladin, Malakir Cullblade, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Indulgent Aristocrat, Stromkirk Noble, Vicious Conquistador, Pulse Tracker, Shadow Alley Denizen, Markov Blademaster to get multiple tokens. Inspiring Cleric doesn't have enough of an impact.
You could potentially replace Avacyn with Eldrazi Monument for the earlier indestructible and +1/+1.
Elbrus is too expensive and not very useful. You should also drop Angelic Destiny and Noble Purpose.

You can make this deck a lot faster without losing to much value by reducing some cards with hight mana cost, at this moment its sees like a mid range kinda trying to be aggro but to slow: Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin Markov, New Blood, Black Market,Bloodsworn Steward, Olivia Voldaren,Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Decree of Pain then you can add 1 mana drops, the presure you can generate is impressing, Pulse Tracker, Vicious Conquistador, Shadow Alley Denizen, Vampire Cutthroat. Consider Purphoros, God of the Forge for hard killing potential x 2 because of edgar and Erebos, God of the Dead as indestructible greed that cancels life gain and can hit eventually. with cheap vampires i would use Legion's Landing and Springleaf Drum instead of signets and/or 3 mana rocks. from here i would improve the quallity and refinement of some cards: do you really need Mindcrank? do i want to give lifes in an agroo deckSwords to Plowshares or better a land Path to Exile? is it worth a Dismember over Go for the Throat or Hero's Downfall?. Ultimatly it depends ond how you want the deck to work, this is an agrro recomendation but if you want to consolidate midrange, i would suggest to go with a ton of life link and life gaining gimmiks.

My friend has been running essentially the same list of Vampires since OG Zendikar through Innistrad, with a couple additions from Ixalan. Based on how difficult the deck is to beat, there's definitely some recommendations I can make.
A couple Blade of the Bloodchief gets absolutely backbreaking. Slap one on an Aetherborn or Nighthawk and you'll see.
Viscera Seer is a fantastic 1-drop; free sac outlet and top deck fixing through scry. Pseudo-card advantage.

Hey, I suggest more one drop and two drop Vamps less five drop Vamps and six drops.
Consider adding (suggestions that have a (s) next them I consider staples for Edgar):
- (s)Indulgent Aristocrat
- (s)Shadow Alley Denizen
- Viscera Seer
- Vicious Conquistador
- Pulse Tracker
- Falkenrath Gorger
- (s)Legion Lieutenant
- (s)Kalastria Highborn
- Dusk Legion Zealot
- Adanto Vanguard
- Gatekeeper of Malakir
- Anowon, the Ruin Sage
- Bishop of Rebirth
- Black Market
- Bloodline Necromancer
- Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
- Cathars' Crusade
- Crimson Honor Guard
- Fell the Mighty
- Hour of Devastation
- Sanguine Bond
- Blood Tribute
These changes will drop the avg. CMC a lot, consistently more chances to get more Vamps into play before you cast Edgar. Curving out with a one drop, two drop, three drop Vamps can give you a very good aggressive board presence. These changes will help to be able to do this.
Other cards to consider adding:
- (s)Forerunner of the Legion
- (s)Sanctum Seeker
- (s)Bloodline Keeper Flip
- (s)Anguished Unmaking
- Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots
Other cards to consider cutting:
- Pawn of Ulamog
- Mathas, Fiend Seeker
- Worn Powerstone
- Kindred Boon
Good luck with your deck.
