Sorin, Solemn Visitor Discussion

Pervavita on Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Lifegain Based

5 hours ago

I would start by dropping the single use card draw and creature return that gets 2 or less creatures back. You have better options in your colors for both. Though Sibsig Muckdraggers I do like as it can be just to cast, grabs a creature, and can sack for 6 life.

Reassembling Skeleton and Dread Wanderer I think you could cut as they only sacrifice for 1 life, have little to no impact on a game (unless your meta is supper agro but Ayli can block all day there) and if you use them to sack for Ayli's exile ability that works but I think you may have better options.

Sidisi, Undead Vizier is a cheap $$$ tutor and well she's a tutor.

I like Sorin, Solemn Visitor a lot as he can get you some life early on or give you creatures for board presence or sacrifice.

Aetherflux Reservoir is a great win con as it just gives you something to do with all that life you have.

I'm a big fan of board wipes in my Ayli deck and Magister of Worth is a fun one. drop her and most the time people just vote to wipe the board and then you sack to gain life every creature you have. If they let creatures come back... you in response sack all your creatures and gain a bunch of life.

Feel free to look over my Ayli deck for more ideas.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad lends itself more to the token plan you have, so essentially you would ask yourself if you are doing tokens or control, if you are going for more of the control route then Esper Charm over Sorin and even Thoughtseize which can just be surplus to requirements bar a tempo plan, and then if you are going tokens then Sorin is better and even Sorin, Solemn Visitor can be better for his synergy with Lingering Souls.

LuxCannonator on Knight Eclipse

I like it, looks fun!

I would swap Sorin, Solemn Visitor for Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. You can stack the +1/0 emblems. Visitor works well enough, I think that Lord would just function a bit better.

I would also (possibly) swap Infinite Obliteration with Memoricide. It's a turn slower but less color intensive and the major upside is you can get any card. I would at least sideboard it so if you're playing against a less creature heavy deck it wouuld be more versatile.

Kabira Vindicator could be a good option

Always Watching could be a good enchantment for you.

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge seems really good with Final Parting

Kinsbaile Cavalier a better Silverblade Paladin for this deck

Finally Hero of Bladehold

Liliana, the Ceasing of Light

Legendary Planeswalker - Liliana

+2 Each opponent discards a card at random. Each opponent who can't loses 2 life.

+0 You draw a card and lose one life.

-5 Destroy all creatures. They can't be regenerated.

-12 Search your library for up to three cards, put them into your hand, then shuffle your library. Search each opponents library for up to three cards, exile them, then each opponent shuffles their library.

Starting Loyalty: 5

I sadly don't know how to insert the planeswalker symbols. I once did, but I apparently forgot. I am aware that her +2 and her -12 are somewhat anti-synergistic, but that's okay for me.

I generally liked the idea of giving the her quintessential black abilities. As such, she has an edict effect, she's a Phyrexian Arena and a Damnation on a stick. Her ulti is a bit weird, but I figured if you get there, you're probably going to win off of that ultimate.

I liked the concept of the Khans returning we had a while back. Now, the fact that the Khans returned was largely due to something that Tamiyo did. Show me a two-coloured Tamiyo card. The two colours should be chosen in a way that she could be aligned to two one of two possible clans - the same way Sorin, Solemn Visitor fits into Mardu or Abzan.

Last_Laugh on Edgar Markov

I have a few different suggestion for you. Shared Animosity and Reconnaissance. Reconnaissance is just dumb (Look up the rulings, it's brokenness isn't readily apparent). Shared Animosity should take Door of Destinies slot. Door is slow and does nothing for your current board state and requires gas after it comes down.

Also, find room for Boros Charm for more boardwipe protection. I like Sorin, Solemn Visitor here a lot more for his lifelink your team +1 than I do your current Sorin.

Urza's Incubator I think belongs in big mana tribes like angels and dragons, not here. I personally think Herald's Horn is better here for 2 reasons... A lot of vampires are color intensive and don't get the full discount of Incubator and the pseudo draw of Horn is needed here. Which brings me to my next point... draw.

The one-time use cards like Read the Bones don't work very well here. Consider Greed, Dark Prophecy, and/or Erebos, God of the Dead in addition to what you already run. I literally run all those except Erebos and what you run. This deck needs draw power.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not budget friendly but it should still help. There's also over 100 comments worth of card discussion as well. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Last_Laugh on Edgar Markov tokens

Welcome. So to get Markov added as your commander edit your deck and add CMDR after the 1x Edgar Markov.

On to the deck itself...

Your finishers of Coat of Arms and Door of Destinies I have different suggestions for. Shared Animosity and Reconnaissance. Coat of Arms helps everyone and Reconnaissance is just dumb (Look up the rulings, it's brokenness isn't readily apparent). Door of Destinies is slow and does nothing for your current board state and requires gas after it comes down.

Also, find room for Boros Charm for more boardwipe protection. I like Sorin, Solemn Visitor here a lot more for his lifelink your team +1 than I do your current Sorin.

Urza's Incubator I see is on your maybeboard but I personally think Herald's Horn is waaay better here. A lot of vampires are color intensive and don't get the full discount of Incubator and the pseudo draw of Horn is needed here. Which brings me to my next point... draw.

The one-time use cards like Read the Bones don't work very well here. Consider Greed, Dark Prophecy, Twilight Prophet, and Champion of Dusk. I literally run all those and Necropotence. This deck needs draw power.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's not budget friendly but it should still help. There's also over 100 comments worth of card discussion as well. Feedback, upvotes, and ideas on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Ballzanya on Let's Begin With Control...

Disdainful Stroke is good in the mirror match, where Jace, the Mind Sculptor and the five drop gideon are often played. It's also good against Gurmag Angler, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Restoration Angel, Pia and Kiran Nalaar, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet etc.
