wisegreenbean on Life is a Useful Resource

Oh I guess you mostly need to cut cards:

Ageless Entity is just a big fat boy, no evasion, no +1/+1 counter synergy. He doesn't do enough for 5 mana. Baneslayer Angel is kinda in the same boat. Gains some life, but not super resilient, and not a super fast clock. Exalted Angel falls under the same category of medium beaters. Probably Gisela, the Broken Blade too?

All 3 soul sisters should go, they're pure dedicated life gain with no other upside in a deck that already gains plenty of life. They might be good enough for Karlov that gets immediate value off of repeated small incremental life gain, but not for you.

Gifted Aetherborn no

Sangromancer is pure dedicated life gain on a medium body. I don't think much of it but it can situationally gain crazy life. I'd cut it but I can see the argument for it.

Siege Rhino maaaaaaaybe? If you intend to go full on tempo agro? Doesn't feel like an amazing strategy tho, and the deck feels more grindy than agro.

Quiet Disrepair this is a comically bad way to get rid of a problem artifact or enchantment, and some of those faster, more certain methods gain life anyway.

Leyline of Vitality is basically just a soul sister.

Maybe trim a few pieces of your more mediocre spot removal? Molder sticks out as pretty bad.

6 field sweeps seems a little high considering you kind of want your field to stick, and your recursion isn't super strong. Day of Judgment at least seems like it could go.

You got like 10 ways to kill artifacts/enchantments, so Fracturing Gust might be overkill.

KingRamz on Edgar Markov

Good old Edgar! Sure, I'll give you some suggestions. For reference, here is my Edgar Markov deck. If you take a look at that to compare card choices, one thing to note is I'm running Vampire Nocturnus so I intentionally avoided nonblack cards, so you'll want to keep that in mind.

Manabase

Akoum Refuge is another lifegain dual land if you want a fourth. It was only an ally-colored cycle so that's the only one of those you can run. Myriad Landscape is great and goes in almost any deck. Since this deck is so heavy in black, you might want to look at Tainted Peak and Tainted Field.

Card suggestions

If you want to be aggressive, how about some one-drops? Viscera Seer is perfect for this deck. Easy include. I was also excited to discover Shadow Alley Denizen, though I haven't gotten to cast her myself in the deck yet. Getting intimidate off your Vampire tokens seems like it should be good for chipping in some extra damage.

Extort seems like it plays perfectly with your theme. Tithe Drinker would fit nicely. Blind Obedience is absolutely amazing.

Other cards, let's see... Sangromancer is very efficient and should play well here. Vampiric Rites lets you turn extra dorks into life and cards. It's not as efficient as Skullclamp, but you only get to run one of those. How about Mathas, Fiend Seeker? An evasive low-drop that draws cards and gains life sounds perfect!

Cut suggestions

Chalice of Life  Flip - Doesn't gain life very fast and even a Lava Axe every round gives your opponents plenty of time to respond. If you want a way to win outside the combat phase, kill the table with Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless.

Licia, sanguine Tribune - I think Licia is cool, but she really needs a deck built around her. You aren't going to want to spend 7-8 mana to cast her and your deck isn't set up to gain huge chunks of life without investing mana that turn. You've got a few ways to do it, but without those she's kind of a brick.

Damnable Pact - this card feels like a bad Braingeyser and a bad Blaze. Flexibility is nice, but I don't think the efficiency tradeoff is worth it in this case. If you want an X-spell finisher, see above. If you want to draw cards, there are plenty of efficient spells like Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Painful Truths, and Read the Bones. Or you could check out Vampiric Rites.

Diabolic Tutor - Four mana for a tutor is just so expensive. I'd rather just cast a card draw spell.

Defiant Bloodlord - Ok, so hear me out. I have had this guy in my hand in lifegain decks and man, I never want to spend seven mana on him. He's so much easier to kill than Sanguine Bond and, unlike Butcher of Malakir, you are unlikely to be able to make good use of his static ability the turn you cast him.

If you can get your hands on a Sanguine Bond, it goes wonderfully with Exquisite Blood or Sangromancer, if you're looking for combos. Cool deck idea, +1

EchoSpice on Jinxed Idol

Sangromancer would be a good addition, since they have to sac a creature to get rid of the idol, and then you gain some life. if they give it back to you, you still profit 1 life. another good addition would be Sanguine Bond, which combined with Sangromancer makes an infinite loop, if that's something you like. also, I think this deck is casual legal? I think.

Good luck! +1

Drakon562 on C17 Vampires - What are ...

1 month ago

I personally don't think Pawn of Ulamog deserves a spot in the deck, but that's because I'm playing a full out aggressive deck. I don't really like the life-gain aspect of vampires if it's front and center, so Licia, Sanguine Tribune, Tithe Drinker, Falkenrath Noble, and Vampire Nighthawk came out as well. I also cut Vein Drinker, Skeletal Vampire, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Kheru Mind-Eater, Bloodhusk Ritualist, Crimson Honor Guard and Sangromancer.

All of this is what I cut from my deck, because its a beatdown/swarm deck. Things that take away from that don't deserve a spot. Butcher of Malakir is still in because I can kill my things to make them lose things, so I can punch them.

All and all, I think that you definitely should play some games with the precon, and see what does and doesn't work for you. I have a friend who plays Licia, Sanguine Tribune and goes for more of a pillowfort/lifegain deck. It's really up to you. Hope this helped.

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on lifelink vampires blood drain

You probably need to add some more 1-drop Vampires to your list to start aggressing early. I've been playing a guy's casual Vampire deck since I first started playing Magic some 6 years ago, and I still have trouble beating it; it's just that powerful.

Viscera Seer is super great at filtering out bad draws, as well as being a sac outlet. Never underestimate sac outlets. Recommend as a 2-of.

Vicious Conquistador is the (almost) strictly better Pulse Tracker, and nothing's about as good as extra noncombat life loss. A playset is ideal.

For 2-drops, I see you have a playset of Gifted Aetherborn, which is top-notch, and I also recommend Kalastria Highborn for eking out the last bits of life from your opponent with suicide attacks. Gatekeeper of Malakir is also a beast; filling your curve and/or providing removal is efficiency at its finest.

Filling out Captivating Vampire to a playset would be the next ideal thing to do. Having all the lords you can always helps.

In terms of removal, Victim of Night technically hits the most creatures, but Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Grasp of Darkness, Dismember, and Disfigure are also all good choices.

Throw in an extra copy or two of Blade of the Bloodchief. Its damn cheap to play and equip, and it gets stupid fast.

If you want cutting recommendations, Bloodbond Vampire isn't fantastic, you're not running boardwipes or discard for Sangromancer, Alms of the Vein doesn't have a madness outlet, Dash Hopes doesn't always work the way you want it to (but keep it in if you want; it's always fun to play), and while Viridian Longbow is cute, it's a bit too expensive to equip, and more often than not, you want to be aggressive with your creatures.

Hopefully this helps!

Triton on Edgar Markov EDH

1 month ago

I'm surprised there's no Vona, Butcher of Magan. He costs less mana than Butcher and hits more targets for a mere 7 life. Also Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge are cheaper than Warstorm Surge.

As far as the cards go, I'd recommend non-taplands rather than taplands, since 3+ color mana bases are very intensive on color; so I'd advise foregoing the cycle lands.

Bloodline Necromancer and Falkenrath Noble are two creatures I'd recommend adding in from the list. Sangromancer and Skeletal Vampire are okay.

The deck as far as I have noticed loves draw power, so any cheap draw engines or cards like Phyrexian Arena are good. I also like Harsh Mercy as a board wipe, especially against non-tribal decks.

Here's my take on the deck, feel free to ask about cards and take suggestions from it:

Sangromancer seems like an auto include with all of your sacrifice effects.
