Hello. Unfortunately, I could not find anything listed that I wanted in exchange of the Plateau. However, looking over you want list, I saw that you wanted Bitter Ordeal and Serra Ascendant. I came up with:
Bitter Ordeal ($7.64) + Serra Ascendant ($18.9), $26.54 total; for your Thoughtseize ($23.15) and Burgeoning (3.49), $26.64.


prices were taken from tcgplayer mid, assuming burgeoning/thoughtseize are conspiracy/theros respectively.

Some suggestions for your current lifegain strategy.

I like the look of this. Easy way to gain a lot of life and efficient. I'm assuming your win-cons are Vizkopa Guildmage and hoping to beat with Serra Ascendant? Is it worth trying to add in another beater of some kind, or?

I mean, either way, deck looks NASTY. Upvote from me!

Showers are amazing, always get the best realizations.

I'm putting the Serra Ascendant in, it's a potential T3 Licia.

Oh Akuma, You're right. Had a bit of a brainfart there but was under the impression you would have to target Licia - which you don't, so it's all good. Edgar Markov is really the Vampire tribal overlord yeah - I don't make that many tokens in this deck. Think it's just Bloodline Keeper and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad that have the potential. Mynea is a nice addition from Ixalan, now that I looked.. so is Sanguine Sacrament. And I thought waiting for C17 was bad :'(.

Chiri! deathtouch and lifelink are certainly formidable! especially when you have first strike too hehe. I'm not sure about adding Serra Ascendant, it's a great 1-drop that is basically a 6/6 always, but it being a monk bothers me a bit - this is just me being petty though! it's a great card. As for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.. not a fan of the Zombies. Yes you get them for free, and you can even sac them to make Kalitas stronger, and he's a 3/4 for 4 with lifelink. Tons of value and I should really be playing him.. but I won't, for now.

I was looking for Sunbond, should add more value to our lifegain spells as well.

I agree Bou! Still i have to see how well Licia sustains our life. But Favor of the Mighty does not counter Licia's selfpumping ability? I've done quite some more brainstorming and came to the conclusion that Licia actually does not fit the tribal ideas so much, that is Edgar's game. To add to this I miss green haha. but still I want to make it work!

So even though Edgar would profit more from these, Anointed Procession, Coat of Arms and Shared Animosity would help our vampires. "Mynea frian, dark apostle", a card from the upcoming Ixalan expansion also helps with creating tokens. (I forgot about Kalitas! Thanks Chiri)

While not fitting the theme Martyr of Sands, Rhox Faithmender and as mentioned above Serra Ascendant would help throwing Licia out asap. I also might add a Paraselene.

To support Licia's pumping Sunbond, Rings of Brighthearth and Illusionist's Bracers would be good additions.

I think Serra Ascendant fits nicely here. Same with Archetype of Finality. Deathtouch and lifelink are a great combination.

Have you considered Serra Ascendant? It makes you a target but it more often than not gets a hit or two in and gets you a lot of life early.
