Stensia Masquerade

Enchantment

Attacking creatures you control have first strike.

Whenever a Vampire you control deals combat damage to a player, put a +1/+1 counter on it.

Madness (If you discard a card, you may cast this card for its madness cost instead of putting it into your graveyard.)

No problem! I'm glad to help. Edgar Markov is one of my favorite commanders!

Just a short list of cards that I find really do work in my list. Even better they are all three mana or less!

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with everyone safely (yes, even that 0/1, why not), untap each creature at the most opportune time for pseudo vigilance, and still deal combat damage in most situations.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (obvious face value of the card), it untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt (great for getting +1+1 counters from Drana, Liberator of Malakir to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain / Stensia Masquerade ), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

This combination of full tilt aggro with everyone available to block makes Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 really good here (Note, 'until your next turn') and it more than offsets a few of my next suggestions.

As far as the decks inherent card draw weakness goes, consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , Herald's Horn , and Twilight Prophet . Protecting your board also prevents topdeck mode, consider Boros Charm and//or my favorite piece of secret tech here, Scapegoat . This gets around -1-1, exile, tuck, sacrifice, and -X-X type boardwipes while keeping our hand full and we get eminence triggers again. I'd rather sac a token and eat a personal evacuation than be in topdeck mode post boardwipe.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas, it's one of the top rated Edgar lists on the entire site. There's also over 130 comments worth of feedback and suggestions to sift through for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Thank you for the feedback! I'm adding an extra mana and swapping out a Stensia Masquerade (Having one should be enough, anyways). I'll swap in a Cavern of Souls for the mana once I can afford it.

Hey TheErebos!

Alright so cards off the top of my head to definitely keep for the vampires.

Now moving on to the card types, for anthem/doubling/synergy token effects:

Now going for the interaction suite:

Now for card draw engines:

No good deck is left without tutors as well:

So far those cards are to be considered, sort through the cards and we can refine them to a playable deck list. Add in 36 lands to start, I feel that eventually we can cut it down to 34-35 since Markov will run a low curve. The basic lands should be good along with the basic multicolor mana base like Command Tower, Reflecting Pool, Mana Confluence, Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, the shock lands (Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt, Sacred Foundry), and also the painlands for now (Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Sulfurous Springs).

Let me know when you update it!

Nice deck but most have just an effect on themself. I would choose True Conviction over Mark of the Vampire And you might like Sanctum Seeker, Shared Animosity, Stensia Masquerade, Rakish Heir, Patron of the Vein, Necropolis Regent, Indulgent Aristocrat, Blade of the Bloodchief, Vein Drinker Argentum Armor is way too expensive and draws too much attention in my opinion.

Some other suggestions:

MAIN DECK:

IF YOU RUN IT IN LEGACY INSTEAD OF MODERN:

  • Putrid Imp (I'm in love with this card, even in decks other than Madness; unlimited manaless discard ability is seriously OP; with this in play you can just pay Madness costs on every spell - adding him would significantly change the value of quite a few cards should you concentrate on only paying Madness costs for no additional cost to discard.)
