Burningdragon91 I used to run with Reconnaissance and Nahiri's Machinations but they were both dead cards. With 3 opponents, someone is ALWAYS open or has 1 creature to use any of the single target removal, OR first strike just overrules their blocker. Narset games don't last long. HOWEVER, if they "do," there are 2 creature board wipes to cast to remove what you need: Catastrophe , Cyclonic Rift (also single target), and Cataclysm .

Good question.

well somehow my comment broke. that sucks. Recommend to remove: Voltaic Servant Sprite Noble Empyrean Eagle Golem's Heart Cathedral Membrane Heraldic Banner Journeyer's Kite One of the things you have that makes things enter tapped. Maybe. And some lands.

Highly recommended: buffs creatures Reconnaissance Path of Bravery Makes stuff cost less Semblance Anvil Etherium Sculptor Recursion Dance of the Manse Stall Standstill

Recommend: Anthem(1-2 more of at most) Spear of Heliod Obelisk of Urd Leonin Sun Standard Stuff cost less Helm of Awakening Jhoira's Familiar Hatefull Diversionary Tactics Suppression Field Protec Retract Draw Slate of Ancestry Etherium Astrolabe Does Everything The Immortal Sun

Dark Prophecy over Read the Bones. Your draw power needs some work... Necropotence , Herald's Horn , and Greed will help keep you out of topdeck mode.

Austere Command over Fumigate

Reconnaissance over either Coat of Arms . Coat is rather ballsy and it sucks to lose to your own card. Reconnaissance allows you to attack with EVERY creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain / Stensia Masquerade ), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an attacking creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

If you're picking up what I'm putting down I can continue. In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I have a few suggestions to help with your 'too aggressive' problem.

First, consider Reconnaissance . It allows you to attack with EVERY creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of your creatures untapped and ready to block and deter attackers.

It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain / Stensia Masquerade ), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an attacking creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

The other two things that will help are lots of repeatable card draw and a few anti-wrath measures.

Boros Charm and Scapegoat are your best anti-wrath cards. I run both in addition to Teferi's Protection.

Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Herald's Horn , Twilight Prophet , Champion of Dusk , and Greed . I literally run all this in addition to Skullclamp. Drop Reprocess though... sorcery speed.

Also consider Shared Animosity and upping your creature count to at least 30.

Try Reconnaissance .

Recon allows you to attack safely with every creature you have, deal combat damage in most situations, and have everyone untapped and ready to block to deter aggro. It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage is dealt (handy for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain/Stensia Masquerade), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an attacking creature until the end of combat step ends (untap in the middle of this step).

Another great card for low costed vamps is Scapegoat . It allows you to sac a token to dodge tuck, exile, -X-X, sacrifice, and other hard to dodge wraths. With Purphoros, God of the Forge it also allows you to just bounce your board to replay and murder everyone. Great secret tech people won't see coming... I'd rather eat a personal Evacuation than end up in topdeck mode.

A few of your current finishers I question. Dolmen Gate/Door of Destinies/Coat of Arms. Gate helps on only offense but does nothing to deter the inevitable revenge (Recon is a direct upgrade). Door does nothing for your current board, costs a lot of mana for aggro, and it requires gas after you play it to get it to do anything even then. Coat is ballsy and most token decks (and some tribal like elves) will destroy you with your own card (the ultimate feel-bad moment).

Not a bad start... I do have several suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.

Draw: You're lacking in this department. Necropotence , Twilight Prophet , Greed , and Herald's Horn . I literally run all those plus the draw creatures/Skullclamp you run.

Finishers: Drop Door of Destinies... it's a significant investment that does nothing for your current board and requires gas to get it to do anything after. Reconnaissance (2nd post dedicated entirely to this card) is your best finisher by far.

Board Protection: Teferi's Protection (if you have one). Boros Charm and Scapegoat are your next best options. Being able to quickly recover or dodge wraths outright wins games.

Ramp: It's worth running your Black Talismans. Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Indulgence , and Fellwar Stone

Creatures: Cordial Vampire and Drana, Liberator of Malakir

Misc.: Diabolic Intent and Austere Command

Not a bad start... I do have several suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.

Draw: You're severely lacking in this department. Drop one time draw like Read the Bones and replace it with things like Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Herald's Horn . I literally run all those plus the draw creatures/Skullclamp you run.

Finishers: Drop Door of Destinies... it's a significant investment that does nothing for your current board and requires gas to get it to do anything after. Shared Animosity , Reconnaissance (2nd post dedicated entirely to this card), and depending on your meta Cover of Darkness .

Board Protection: Teferi's Protection (if you have one). Boros Charm and Scapegoat are your next best options.

Ramp: It's worth running your Black Signets and Talismans. Talisman of Hierarchy , Talisman of Indulgence , Rakdos Signet , and Orzhov Signet

Misc.: Diabolic Intent and Austere Command
