Quag Vampires Discussion

I like many of your cards and others, not so much. Ill start with the good part.
Shivan Harvest: Awesome, gonna have to include that in my own deck. I keep forgetting this card exists.
Mardu Ascendancy: Yes and no. The first part of the enchantment is decent for an aggro deck, but the second part will be mostly useless. Your biggest enemy will be wraths, not combat. If you're running Edgar, you will probably have the most creatures.
Obzedat's Aid: A great card.
Lapse of Certainty: It always helps to be a little tricky. A spell like this will never go unused if you draw it during a game.
Bitterblossom: An excellent card for Edgar. I'd run it myself if I had one.
Now for the bad:
Quag Vampires: I would swap those guys with a
Shadow Alley Denizen, who gives more utility.
Vedalken Orrery: Why? You'll not generate a large amount of mana with this deck and your sorcery count is also low. Not worth the slot in this deck.
Ghostly Prison: You're gonna have a buttload of creatures, so it's just better to block with those, instead of a 3 cmc enchantment that you could replace with Vindicate, Shared Animosity, or a Boros Charm to protect yourself from wraths, which will make you cry. Also, you could fetch that last card with your sunforger, so there's that.No Stromkirk Captain? You just HAVE to run this guy, no way around that.
Ranger of Eos: Your one drops are not that impactful to warrant him being here.
Lastly, as suggestion, I would run Phyrexian Reclamation. You could return a vampire to your hand, cast it again, and activate Edgar's eminence in a recurring fashion.
Hope this helped!

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.
- Creatures: A card I enjoyed running was Pulse Tracker, but I know popular choices include Vampire Lacerator and Guul Draz Vampire. More cheap creatures would make it easier to utilize Captivating Vampire and Feast of Blood.
- Spells: Additional hand disruption via duress-like effects (you know the list, I don't need to list them). Additional cheap and effective removal such as Ulcerate or Fatal Push (more Dismember effectively fills this slot too).

Sea's Claim and Spreading Seas could make good sideboard cards against black, which doesn't really care about having its lands turned to swamps. Corrupted Roots could be sideboarded as additional land enchants, or cheaper land enchants against certain decks.

Thanks for the suggestions bro. I would defiantly love to run Kalitas if he wasn't so expensive. Bloodline Keeper Flip is great too, but I think they both would be a little slow for the deck. Mirri the Cursed is the top of my curve, and she's mostly in here because she can come in with flying and haste and surprise the shit out of people.
I like those 1 drops too, I've tried a lot of different ones and nothing seems quite right except Stromkirk Noble. The Quag Vampires aren't bad, get them out early and they can grow with the other Vamps or late game you can kick it a few times. I'll try out some of the ones you mentioned too. Probably gonna go up to 4x Stromkirk Noble and 2x of whatever other 1x drop I decide on. But I feel I defiantly need 6x 1 drops to get things going early on.
Thanks for the comment man, this deck has been rebuilt many times and has had many different strategies but I'm liking it this way the best.

For 1 drops I run Stromkirk Noble and Quag Vampires. The latter are really effect against black and can also be kicked for extra power later in the game. I want to get some Gatekeeper of Malakir as well.
Oh and is there any reason you are only running 1 Terminate? It's a great kill spell.

Balthor the Defiled, Underworld Cerberus, Library of Leng for yourself while having out Anvil of Bogardan, either of the "tempt" cards (which you already have 1), Geier Reach Sanitarium, since you already have Abyssal Persecutor you should throw in Platinum Angel so no one can win or lose. You also need a win-con that's (semi) reliable, id suggest Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth with a hexproofed (by lightning greaves or something) swampwalker like Quag Vampires with Aggravated Assault and Sword of Feast and Famine then sac the abyssal persecutor for win

Hi, Shadow_Tack, thanks for the advice. But I usually play 'paper pauper' - that's why Sinkhole is there. And yes, I'm collecting nice results against most decks. But i think it's a bit slow yet. Usually T1 and T2 I'm dealing with opponent's lands. So, except when Quag Vampires hit the table early, I begin to hit at 4th turn...

I've made some changes and worked in some cards I had purchased before posting this, does it look better or do I need to rethink this change?
I do agree on needing more of Gatekeeper of Malakir, but can't say I want to take out Feast on the Fallen I have had really good results with it. Quag Vampires is on my list of needed cards, as is Kalastria Highborn. After looking at my artifact cards I did decide that all three just weren't as good as some of the enchantments I owned and removed those, adding in the Fleetfeather Sandals. This is more for the kind of decks I face, they have no defense for it and I have cards that benefit from direct damage to a player, and the haste it useful. Considering the tokken decks I play I've seriously been considering Crawlspace and Killing Wave for my deck, just to help with crowd control. Whip of Erebos and Sanguine Bond are cards I'm seriously considering.
