Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

DRmagic2017 on Vampiric Bond

Hello! Edgar Markov is the best Vampire commander. Good choice. But why did you exclude Blade of the Bloodchief? I think it works well in Vampire builds. I also think you need more token generators like Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Grim Nemesis. And something to boost your Vampires. For example: Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Door of Destinies, Coat of Arms, Vanquisher's Banner, Obelisk of Urd etc. And don't forget about board wipes. I see Merciless Eviction here but I also recommend to think about Wrath of God, Day of Judgment and/or Damnation. Good luck!

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Serra Ascendant in a Vampire deck? Seems a little bit weird. Conspiracy maybe... I also recommend to find a place for Blade of the Bloodchief. Not sure about Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - I use it in monocolored decks only (just like Vampire Nocturnus - this guy is great in mono B Vampires but he is much less effective in Mardu builds). What do you think about Maze of Ith? Or Vesuva? Seems a little bit more interesting. I also see Sorin Markov in your maybeboard. You added Eldrazi Monument so token generators are much more preferable. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor for example. And yes, don't forget about Anointed Procession if you want to get tons of tokens. I also recommend to think about board wipes: Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation, Languish etc. Even Obliterate. Why not? Eerie Interlude + Obliterate and a very big surprise is guaranteed :)

Hey DRmagic2017, no matter how kindly Anowon, the Ruin Sage behaves, I don't see him in this deck. CMC is just too high for what he's got to offer since he's easy to remove and often doesn't survive till my next upkeep. I'm thinking about adding Sorin, Lord of Innistrad instead of Sorin, Solemn Visitor. I think I'd rather have a permanent boost for my creatures plus the token he provides don't need loyalty counters to happen. In my opinion Sorin Markov is superior in pretty much every way to Blood Tribute. For 6 CMC I would only consider cards that could possibly end the game and I just don't see Blood Tribute as such. I'm not sure about Blade of the Bloodchief because there is no instant effect but maybe I will add it to the deck. I see Coat of Arms as a finisher whereas Vanquisher's Banner just doesn't do the trick. The carddraw is too random and the boost is too low to make a huge impact most of the time. Sooner or later other Tutors will find their way into this deck but for now they're simply out of my budget. ;) Thanks a lot DRmagic2017 for your suggestions!

hejtmane on Edgar: are there any (no ...

We just built my son a tribal vampire commander waiting for some cards to fill in for mana. Vampires have a lot that stacks with Sanguine Bond add in Drana's Emissary, Cliffhaven Vampire, Gifted Aetherborn and a ton more with lifelink, Sanctum Seeker which with the token spam can get crazy add in Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Olivia Voldaren to steal creatures as vampire and attack them with their own creature. That is not even counting Vampire Envoy

All that will help stack with that combo you can have some crazy fun with Vampire tribal

Since the majority of cards in your deck are black, I suggest Vampire Nocturnus, while the buff is conditional it's very strong and fairly consistent, especially with any draw/scry effects.

Tithe Drinker and Olivia's Bloodsworn can be surprisingly effective, especially if you get them out early.

Blasphemous Act and Vandalblast can be effectively combined into Merciless Eviction.

Crackling Doom is really strong. Also, Blood Tribute. Blast 'em.

Legion's Landing could be put in maybe in place of a plains or something, since it flips into a land so easily? Also Radiant Destiny is good, especially once you get the vigilance, which isn't hard to do with the tokens.

Sorin Markov, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are all strong additions, and cool flavor because your commander is already his granddad :P

Really cool deck, check out mine! ==> Russian Vampire Mafia

Came here from your comment on The Partnership.

I really like Patriarch's Bidding in here! I may actually add that to my version.

You are missing one of the best vampires, Falkenrath Noble. It is also a sacrifice outlet and indestructible as long as you generate tokens, like Yahenni. I would alson include Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief in place of one lesser vampire.

You have not included any Planewalker; Sorin, Solemn Visitor and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad would both work great with your creature-focused theme.

How have you fared so far off only 31 lands? I know your curve is low, but that seems risky to me; I would bring that to at least.

Unless you are mainly playing duels, you don't really need a Sol ring in there; it could be a dead card mid game. Legion's landing has not been great for me, I think I may cut it for my update.

Hope this helps!

This is my first impression. 1x Sorin, Lord of Innistrad should be switched out with a different Sorin like a Sorin Markov or something. Also I think you should take out at least on Call to the Feast. And switch the two Duress's from your sideboard for two Thoughtseize's. One or two of the Serra Avenger's should go as well, the chances of picking one up on turn 1 2 or 3 are just to high. One Indulgent Aristocrat as well they are pretty good but you could switch it for something better. All of the Child of Night's have to go. And MAYBE one high cost card to balance the mana base a bit more. Okay. Now for the add-ins. Captivating Vampire is a must have for a vampire deck, but seeing how this mostly angels I could see why if you said no. Sangromancer is terrific lifegain. Bloodghast. New Blood. Blood Artist. And definetly Whip of Erebos if your going for lifelink. Also Heirloom Blade is a good tribal card too. All in all I really like this deck you've mixed up two of my favorite tribes and make a great deck with it!

If you make it based on the life opponents gain, you’re going to enable a number of very dangerous combos, such as with Sanguine Bond, while also making one of the combo pieces immune to removal.

My main issue is that you took an already problematic ability and took it to the extreme. There’s a reason that, of the forty-two planeswalkers that create emblems, only two - Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Gideon of the Trials - do not require an ultimate.
