Sorin, Lord of Innistrad occurrence in decks from the last year

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

Austin_Smith_of_Cards on Deathmonicon - Teysa Karlov Aristocrats EDH

3 weeks ago

Change log after not investing in this list in a while:

-1 Ashen Rider +1 Path to Exile

-1 Boreas Charger +1 Cruel Celebrant

-1 Sadistic Hypnotist +1 Altar of Dementia

In terms of creature swaps, Ashen Rider is incredibly strong and a hard cut, but I’d rather have the cheap efficiency of Path. Archon of Justice costs less and is about as good.

Boreas Charger has always kinda sucked even if I get double death triggers, so in goes Celebrant as an additional wincon.

Sadistic Hypnotist is pretty good, but Altar costs less, can sacrifice at instant speed, and is a wincon.

-1 Worn Powerstone +1 Talisman of Hierarchy

Just an upgrade to a mana rock. I’d rather curve into Teysa on turn two than have an extra colorless mana a turn later.

-1 Dark Prophecy +1 Village Rites

-1 Martyr's Bond +1 Bastion of Remembrance

This list really badly needed a way to just draw cards instantly; we have plenty of card draw value engines. I decided Dark Prophecy competed with Necro for its slot and got the cut.

Martyrs Bond I never really saw while playing, but I’d rather have another drain effect than something that stalls the game.

-1 Sorin, Lord of Innistrad +1 Grim Tutor

Sorry, foil original print Sorin, he’s a little slow to generate tokens for his mana cost. The deck needed a fourth tutor to more consistently pull together its combos anyway, and Grim is a spicy recent reprint.

-1 Orzhov Guildgate +1 Brightclimb Pathway  Flip

-1 Swamp +1 Silent Clearing

And just some upgrades in the manabase. Overall, can’t wait to see how this list can perform even better!

Any reason why you're not running any Sorins?

Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord plays into your gain life, hurt them strategy perfectly.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad consistent token generator.

And lost but not least Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord lets you play free vampires.

I feel like the moxes don’t really fit here too well. You need to have Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as must-run token planeswalkers. I would also seriously look into Vindictive Vampire, Woe Strider, and both of the Athreos gods.

Also, Giver of Runes seems out of place here. Is there really a point? Weathered Wayfarer is also a somewhat odd choice. You’re at 36 lands and are only in two colors - one being black. I don’t think you need this kind of land tutor (but that’s just me).

There are some other things I’d change (I used to run Teysa, Orzhov Scion for a very long time and enjoyed her before I switched to Teysa Karlov), but I don’t want to sound mean or anything like that. It’s a nice deck, but some of the choices give me the try-hards (like the moxes for example). But hey dude, if you dig it and it brings you joy, keep doing what you’re doing!

Tzefick on Markov Manor

We get relatively close to a depiction in Declaration in Stone. I cannot confirm it, but I do believe that we see Markov Manor in the background of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad.

I don't think it's right to allow a continuous creation of deathtouch tokens from a land, but the flying and lifelink are good.

It would be kinda daunting to see this land untapped with 3 available mana whenever you would attack with a land walker.

Why only 1xsorin?

Sorin Markov

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord

Sorin, Vampire Lord

Sorin, Grim Nemesis or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord if you wanted to splice in some White through either Duel Lands or Artifacts. Hell, a couple Lotus Field s would work even Unknown Shores could do the trick.

I'd lose one to three Swamp s This is a Mono-Black deck. Mono decks only need 16-18 of their Primary Mana source, this frees up room for either more Spells, Creatures, or Planeswalkers.

Also, I'd trade in Barren Moor Bojuka Bog Castle Locthwain Piranha Marsh for 4x Westvale Abbey  Flip They'll never see that coming and it plays into the story of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and since the Shadowspear is made from pieces of the Helvault you could add one of them.

Indulgent Aristocrat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , & Vampire Outcasts I would personally replace them with 3x Bloodthirsty Aerialist s but they can be replaced with Knight of the Ebon Legion , Dark Impostor , & Child of The Night for a much better effect.

Also, I really dont think Sorin, Lord of Innistrad should be in the deck. He has no value except for pumping out tokens, and honestly, Liliana, Dreadhorde General is just way more value plus she draws cards and has an explosive ult that can win games, especially in a deck like yours.

Death Metal Mosh Pit

Have you thought about Painter's Servant / Darkest Hour to combo with Teysa, Orzhov Scion .

Or Blasting Station / Cartel Aristocrat / Carrion Feeder as free repeatable sac outlets.

Nim Deathmantle also combos real nice with Ashnod's Altar. Karmic Guide plus Reveillark also make for a fantastic Infinite loop for you Blood Artist effects plus the ability for standalone utility as recursion pieces.

Altar of the Brood makes for a low cmc finisher for infinite loops as well.

In general I strongly recommend lowering your average cmc to present more early game relevance.

Also a couple specific Planeswalkers help with a backup plan when primary combo fails and you gotta go token beatdown.

Gideon, Ally of Zendikar immediate ult, buffing all dudes and impossible to remove.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad again immediate emblem buff.

Ajani, Strength of the Pride that 0 ability ult is easily obtainable and puts us in a prime position to win.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion board wipe, massive token producer, and back-breaking ult with token swarm.

Thumbs up and an upvote for the Primer.
