Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

Dovar on Official missing/incorrect card/token thread

New Blood is displaying the wrong legality for legacy.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Legion's Landing  Flip, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Queen's Commission, and Call to the Feast all seem to give the wrong vampire token.

I'm not too sure on why I did the color combo. I guess I wanted to diversify my deck if that makes sense, and picked the white and black since vampires seemed to have both.

I'm thinking of what I want my deck to do... Probably trying to get a bunch of Vampire tokens out with lifelink, and try to control.

So far, I'm planning on taking out Liliana, Death Wielder, Bontu the Glorified, Deathless Ancient, Dire Fleet Ravager,Forerunner of the Legion, Sanguine Glorifier for the creatures.

Taking out Vanquish the Weak, Gravepurge, Rallying Roar,Renewed Faith.

Going to be adding some of those lands you mentioned.

I want to add 4xSorin, Lord of Innistrad, one more Vona, Butcher of Magan. 2 more Sanctum Seeker, Gatekeeper of Malakir. So far that's all I have.

I want to focus on the synergy. I'm not sure what I could possibly have the deck do. I'm thinking about adding 4xElenda, the Dusk Rose to build her up and sacrifice the creatures from the planeswaker. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks for your help.

Ehh.... stupid question, maybe, but exactly what is the combo?

Other than that Dark Ritual is not modern legal.

Some of the cards chosen are pretty weak. Liliana, Death Wielder is not something you can play until turn... hmmm... I don't know... 10? 12? Roughly speaking, you need to draw 20 cards, give or take, into your deck on average to find 7 lands. Wouldn't Ob Nixilis Reignited pretty much do the same, but better and cheaper? Or maybe, since you are playing BW vampires, either Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor would be even better yet? Their tokens would certainly go well with the vampire special abilities.

Speaking of vampires: Gatekeeper of Malakir is a nice, and budgetfriendly, addition. Removal with a body, and with a relevant creature type - what's not to like? Besides, you have some really underpowered creatures, like Sanguine Glorifier (4 mana for a 3/3 creature with a very low impact special), Dire Fleet Ravager (lifeloss is ok, but only if you are REALLY sure that you are going to be ahead) or Exultant Skymarcher.

Lands: there are SO many other lands, you could play, both for utility and mana fixing. Isolated Chapel, Vault of the Archangel, and Shambling Vent are pretty good ones.

Why play Luminous Bonds over more regular removal? Is there any situation, where you wouldn't rather have an extra copy of Path to Exile? On the same note: Vanquish the Weak is terribly overpriced - Fatal Push is a lot better, or Victim of Night if you want a cheaper card.

A bit of 1 cmc targetted discard could also be good - a bit like Dark Inquiry but from the first turn. You could try Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize, or Duress if budget. Play a full set, so they should replace Cleansing Ray and Dark Inquiry.

Lands: Your lands are a little on the... boring side. You could add things like Godless Shrine, Isolated Chapel, and Concealed Courtyard for a better fixed mana base. And lands like Vault of the Archangel and Shambling Vent for utility.

Token generators: Captain of the Watch is really slow for a deck with 22 lands and a bunch of other mana heavy cards. Have you considered Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and/or Sorin, Solemn Visitor instead?

Speaking of mana heavy cards: you could drop at least 2 Call for Unity for 2 more Intangible Virtue.

Grand Abolisher seems unusually present. Do you really need 4? Is your local meta full of counterspells, but no removal (since you have no cards to stop your opponent from killing your creatures after they have resolved), or discard (no Aegis of the Gods or Leyline of Sanctity)? Under most normal circumstances, Grand Abolisher would be a sideboard card, brought in to shine against blue/X control decks, but not really against anything else.

You could also really use some removal, either Path to Exile or Anguished Unmaking. You have some lifegain already, so Anguished Unmaking could actually be quite good, since it also takes opposing planeswalkers, lands and artifacts.

What is the super-value-grindy-win card, you have Sun Titan bring back from the grave?

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Solemn Visitor are awesome in token decks. You could replace elspeth and those other 6 drops with them

bitterblossom for sure. expensive, but you've broken the $30 barrier with your marsh flats already. I personally play a liliana tempo build, which runs two of her, a playset of sorin lord of innistrad, and 3 Gideon, Ally of Zendikar. Also more removal (2 Dismember, 2 Fatal Push, and a Murderous Cut) so its a tempo value build, and Bitterblossom really gets that engine going if you t1 Thoughtseize, t2 Bitterblossom, t3 Liliana of the Veil discarding a Lingering Souls or dropping a Spectral Procession or an anthem, and its basically gg against most aggro decks, as you can chump for days and gain some life. Obviously, the Auriok Champion's in your 'board will help with Bitterblossom, making them essentially free life wise, with Sorin, Lord of Innistrad providing some lifelink if you go anthem>token>anthem and swing for three or four lifelink power which buys you a few turns.Anyway, hope this helps, and good luck with the deck! it has served me well, as i hope it will to you.

Looking good. Have you considered any of the Sorin planeswalkers?

-Sorin, Lord of Innistrad

-Sorin, Solemn Visitor

-Sorin, Grim Nemesis

-Sorin Markov

Also is Licia good? I figured she'd be a good commander, but that Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter could do the same with the tokens Edgar makes. Plus he flies and can be removal. But maybe I'm wrong. Either way, looking great! =)

Feel free to look at mine as well: Masters of the Night

Your deck looks great, mine is pretty similar but I'm still fine tuning it. Here's a few recommendations from my experiences:

Kindred Dominance can be game ending, but getting to 7 mana can be difficult, and most of the time I find that the board is already clear because all the other players are casting board wipes in order to stop my army. I find Fell the Mighty to be easier to use, and has nearly the same effect most of the time when it matters.

While Sorin, Lord of Innistrad give a permanent +1/+0, and may stick around long enough to do more, I find that he never survives to be able to do so. The new Radiant Destiny might be a good replacement. Sure, it can removed, but the vigilance can be a life saver.
