Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord Discussion

Noa on Vamp Helix

My bad match ups have been 8 Wack Zoo (or any creature deck that fast), 2 card combo (like Ad Nauseam / Through the Breach ), and even though I haven't faced it yet, Tron. Cabal Therapist might be good against combo and tron, but discard is quite bad in modern right now. Particularly against Hogaak and Phoenix, as they're trying to get cards in their graveyard. It's also not a vampire, so it doesn't benefit from Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord . Plus 1 toughness isn't great against Wrenn and Six .

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is there to help me stabilise against creature decks and stop sacrifice based combos ( Carrion Feeder + Gravecrawler in Hogaak, Kitchen Finks + sac outlet + no -1/-1 counter card in Coco, etc). Plus it's a vampire. However he's not a must in the sideboard, I've just found the need to have a few more non-graveyard based threats in some match ups.

There is an argument for taking out Wear / Tear , as Stony Silence might be better. It's more useful against Tron and I lost to Goblin Charbelcher last night, not that I'm expecting to see that deck often!

Long story short, I don't think there's anything I'd take out for Cabal Therapist . It's not amazing in the meta at the moment, and doesn't put on a lot of pressure. If I were to put it in, what would you suggest I remove?

I just get the feeling that Sword-Point Diplomacy or Risk Factor would do more for this deck than Experimental Frenzy . I like the idea of doing some direct damage to put +1/+1 counters on Knight of the Ebon Legion , but you might need a few chump-blockers early in the game. Maybe Bladebrand in place of Light Up the Stage to both reduce your mana-curve and let Viashino Pyromancer also clear out an opponent's creature. I also like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord over Chandra, Fire Artisan

Looks like pain to play against :) maybe here some ideas:

Remove the pay aspect. Otherwise you run 3 decks in one I guess.

My Oppinion:

remove 2x Font of Agonies

remove 2x Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip

remove 2x Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord (here you run too less vamps I guess)

remove 4x Scoured Barrens

Add 2x The Haunt of Hightower

Add 4x Discovery / Dispersal (good carddraw)

Add 4x Isolated Chapel

I like the direction you are taking the deck a lot. I agree with danielisaias about the Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Knight of the Ebon Legion . When I comes to "how many copies should I put in?" My go-to rule of thumb is:

1 copy if you plan on tutoring for it, or only need to see it maybe at some point during the game, (alternate win cards, specific answer cards, etc)

2 copies if you definitely want to see it every game, but don't need it early. (A big late game bomb)

3 copies if you want to guarentee to see it every game, sooner than later (core combo cards)

4 copies if you need the card As soon as possible, preferrably in your opening hand (ground work cards, like mana rocks, early creatures, or land ramp)

I would recommend removing Sorin's Guide , because it only works for specifically Sorin, Vampire Lord .

To give the deck an extra boost of mana a single copy of Cabal Coffers could be a massive addition. Obviously it is a bit pricey, so it may be a card to look at later.

Hey! I like the deck, and vampires are always fun to play.

I would increase the number of Knight of the Ebon Legion and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord to four of each. It's expensive, I know, but those two cards are just too good to ignore.

Vicious Conquistador , Vampire of the Dire Moon , and Dusk Legion Zealot are great vampire cards that would work really well in this deck. Champion of Dusk can also help you draw more cards and speed up your game quite a bit!

Honestly, I think the biggest cut candidates are the red cards and the ones that are supported by them. I think Cordial Vampire just puts in so much work that it might just be better than Gifted Aetherborn , given some supporting changes are made. I'm thinking Legion Lieutenant for Stromkirk Captain , with some other removal spell going in for Terminate . I think for 3 mana, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord puts in a lot more work than Gatekeeper of Malakir as a turn 3 play, because he is just about the best way to stick Nocturnus or Kalitas this early in BW. White has been known to be a great color to board with, so I think these color changes could seriously impact your game 2/3 win percentage as well.

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is plain nasty. Consider the value of combining it with another new card, Cordial Vampire Sorin also combos quite nicely with Bloodghast , and can generate insane value by turn 3. Also, he shortcuts to nocturnus altogether, and is overall very mana-efficient.
