PoundTown on Vampiric Bloodlines 2.1

1 day ago

I accuelly removed Butcher of Malakir as I found him often to be less impactful and strictly worse then other vamps in his price range, in addition his cost is often more then I care to pay for what amounts to a gravepact on a stick. I do in fact have a gravepact in the physical version I am running, and it is good fun sacking things to Yahenni, Undying Partisan ,Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter and Voldaren Pariah  Flip. I was considering removing it for other things, but I think I will keep it for now, possibly even adding Dictate of Erebos, as I seem to play against a fair amount of wipes, and flashing that down could be rather me >=D

I do have a Mirror Entity around here somewhere and may have to give that a try. I had one in an old kithkin deck for just that purpose and it seems like a good fit here.

Hazoret's Monument I dont feel will pull its weight, as more often then not I am only going to get to use half of the card. The red sources are simply not large enough for it to warrent a spot. It would be nice if I was running Rakdos Vamps, but its mainly Orzhov, with a few red splashes for must haves, like Olivia Volderan and Stromkirk Captain. I was thinking of trying out

I like the mana suggestions, and I feel I need to get some more lands that dont come in tapped, to help get online ASAP and pumping out vamps. Thats probably my biggest complaint is all the down time waiting for lands to start working, putting me behind, and just honning in the correct number of them, along with better color managment. I will certianly be looking into picking up the suggested lands and finding room for them.

Something else I was considering was Rogue's Passage and Necropotence

Thanks for the suggestions! B/R vampires was my first build a few months back when I started playing again, and this has grown out of that first deck.

I'll cycle in a fourth Stromkirk Captain that I have on hand now. Unfortunately I only have one Bloodghast atm but more copies are next on my list to acquire. Also love the Vampire Lacerator suggestion! Felt like I needed a 1 drop in there and Guul Draz Vampire was all I had on hand; honestly I've not had a lot of luck with it anyways.

+1 for B/R vampires (one of my favorite builds!)

I have a version, Succumb to Madness if you want any ideas. I would say max out on the best ones like Stromkirk Captain Gifted Aetherborn and definitely Bloodghast if you have the money. First strike deathtouch is sooooooooooo good and B/R vampires do it the best I believe.

I really like Falkenrath Gorger Asylum Visitor and Stromkirk Condemned if you are interested in a madness route.

Personally, replace Guul Draz Vampire with Vampire Lacerator. Personally, you dont want the game dragging long (not past 6-8 turns) and you can take the damage from Vampire Lacerator if you have lifegain through Gifted Aetherborn and Vampire Nighthawk.

Best of luck on the build!

Uncanny_Ghoul I used to play Heir of Falkenrath  Flip. Two things i found: I would rather pump the whole team with Stromkirk Condemned and Vampire Nighthawk is one of the best cards in modern, and combod with Stromkirk Captain, makes it VERY difficult to deal with.

Heir of Falkenrath  Flip is one of my favorite vampires, I just think it belongs in a build more centered around madness, whereas this build is more tribal beat down. I do appreciate your comment!

Docvegan, this deck is awesome. I love vampires and I absolutely love how fast this deck is. You said you needed some red vamp ideas; Falkenrath Gorger and Stromkirk Captain are super fun in vampire tribal. Also, I absolutely love Gifted Aetherborn; it's like the little wingless cousin of Vampire Nighthawk. (Shameless plug: I also have this vampire deck I've been working on for a while, and would appreciate any suggestions or tips!)

Sweet deck, I was considering making a Mardu vamps list myself. I wanted to play 4x Legion Lieutenant and 4x Stromkirk Captain to have 8 lords.

@nlidmaster, thanks for the suggestions mate, really appreciated!

Falkenrath Aristocrat looks really spicy, love it.

I know what you mean, but Stensia Masquerade has been working out really well for me; in my playgroup there is simply way more creature removal than enchantment removal.

I can definitily see the case for +1 Falkenrath Gorger and +2 Stromkirk Captain instead of stensia masquerade though. I'll proxy that and see how it goes!

i tried out Heir of Falkenrath  Flip in an earlier build, but it didn't do as much work as the falkenrath gorger, because i was aiming hard at utilizing the +1/+1 counter effect of Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Stensia Masquerade. The furyblade seemed better in this regard. When you put it like that though, it does sound more appealing, especially if the masquerades are repalced with stromkirk captains. I'll give it a shot.
