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.)

Dark Prophecy over Read the Bones. Your draw power needs some work... Necropotence , Herald's Horn , and Greed will help keep you out of topdeck mode.

Austere Command over Fumigate

Reconnaissance over either Coat of Arms . Coat is rather ballsy and it sucks to lose to your own card. Reconnaissance allows you to attack with EVERY creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana 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).

If you're picking up what I'm putting down I can continue. In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I have a few suggestions to help with your 'too aggressive' problem.

First, consider Reconnaissance . It allows you to attack with EVERY creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of your creatures untapped and ready to block and deter attackers.

It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana 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).

The other two things that will help are lots of repeatable card draw and a few anti-wrath measures.

Boros Charm and Scapegoat are your best anti-wrath cards. I run both in addition to Teferi's Protection.

Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Herald's Horn , Twilight Prophet , Champion of Dusk , and Greed . I literally run all this in addition to Skullclamp. Drop Reprocess though... sorcery speed.

Also consider Shared Animosity and upping your creature count to at least 30.

Reconnaissance over Throne of the God-Pharoah. Reconnaissance allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.

It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana 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).

An anti-wrath measure or 2 does wonders here. Teferi's Protection if you got one... otherwise Boros Charm and Scapegoat . More card draw can also keep you out of topdeck mode... Skullclamp , Herald's Horn , and Dark Prophecy .

Run Reconnaissance . It allows you to attack with every creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and then have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block.

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

Hi, today I thought about some changes that would make your deck faster.

That's my 2 cents, let me know what you think about these changes!

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.
