Stromkirk Condemned Discussion
1 month ago
Happymaster19 I agree that Stromkirk Condemned is way overlooked. Thats why I have it in the side deck. I usually sub them in if Im facing a control deck and need to put out as much damage as possible in a few turns.
Since my build is more beatdown, Smuggler's Copter hasnt been as useful, but Im willing to try it out. I found Id rather have the vampire type to have synergy with and I dont get that as much with vehicles.
I think Liliana of the Veil will always be out of my $ range. Shes great in madness, no doubt!
As far as fetches and Fatal Push I agree that it is what black does best right now. Maybe after saving, fetches will be possible. I know my build isnt 100% competitive/top tier. But with the lands what theyre at, I havent had too much of a problem.
For sideboarding, what do you recommend with common matchups? From vampire player to vampire player, any tips? Thanks in advance!
Ps: I saw your True Blood vampire build. I think Im in love! It looks so good! Very synergistic and flavorful!

Stromkirk Condemned is way better than people give it credit for. And Smuggler's Copter is nuts with madness. I feel like theres a budget here too. Otherwise, Liliana of the Veil, also absurd with madness. Fetches and Fatal Push.

Looks good. Some suggestions for cuts: Warmth is kind of weak and can be replaced with Elenda, the Dusk Rose (when you get her), Dega Sanctuary can be replaced with Vampire Nocturnus, Arguel's Blood Fast can be replaced with Greed or even Erebos, God of the Dead. Or take the Necropotence from Rakdos and put it in here, it's better here anyways. You could replace In Garruk's Wake with Dusk, it does double duty here, giving you back a bunch of your creatures when you flash it back. If you don't like Dusk, then Kindred Dominance would work in the overcosted wipe slot too.
As for creatures, Annoited Deacon should probably come out, as well as Exulted Skymarcher, Paladin of the Bloodstained, Sadistic Skymarcher and Skymarcher Aspirant. Options to go in include Stromkirk Condemned, Bishop of Binding, Bloodline Keeper Flip, Dusk Legion Zealot, Twilight Prophet, Indulgent Aristocrat, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Mephidross Vampire, Necropolis Regent, Patron of the Vein, Shauku, Endbringer (less important than maybe other creatures), Soul Collector for giggles, Thief of Blood, Viscera Seer, Vampire Hexmage or Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter.

I run a vampire deck and I use Blade of the Bloodchief and Yahenni, Undying Partisan along with Call the Bloodline for some super cheese, but I highly recommend Stromkirk Condemned and some madness cards.

This is a really interesting deck for vampires, especially with the addition of Aether Vial, and Legion Lieutenant is really aggressive as a two drop lord, we do have Stromkirk Condemned but that's only a pseudo lord so i am excited to see how well this does. +1

Izu_Korasu I know I have a Gatekeeper of Malakir to replace the Stromkirk Condemned with. I had originally chose not to run it since it only affected a single player, but removal on a stick is always nice. I'll cut a mana rock for Asylum Visitor, as I noticed this deck struggles with draw power but has relatively solid ramp.
Thanks for the suggestions!

you probably drop a rock or two with a Stromkirk Condemned to make room for a few picks.

So... As for the rest, in order: I ran Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic in my first draft. Automaton underpreformed, whereas Mimic was hit and miss. Markov only triggers on CASTING vampires, so I ended up dropping both of them for more vampires.
Eldrazi Monument and Akroma's Memorial are both great, but again, I wanted to cast vampires. They'll help you get further ahead, but having a vampire can help you catch up or rebuild. So, its a matter of taste. I wouldn't run too many of these artifact "lord" effects, Vanquisher's Banner only makes the cut because it draws me cards.
But DUUUUDE. I never even heard of Stoneforge Masterwork. Not sure what to cut for it either, at this point the deck is pretty tight, and there isn't room to cut another mana land. Still, that definitely IS in the ideal Markov build. I'll have to find room for it.
Malakir Bloodwitch is cool, but this also isn't the sort of token deck where you have 40+ tokens, it's the sort of deck where you have 5-8 vampires and they're all getting huge. Still, the protection from white is solid, and you'll gain a lot of life. I'd say run it over Soul Collector to taste.
Anowon, the Ruin Sage eats my +1/+1 lords and my goats. I don't like that, especially the lord part. He's cool, but I think he's more of a stax stack guy than a Vampire lord.
Gatekeeper of Malakir is cool, but he's situational. If opponents are relying on a single hexproof creature he's your guy, but other than that... Underwhelming IMO. At least, without other stax pieces.
Olivia, Mobilized for War very nearly made it, for having madness and providing haste. But there are only 3 non-vampires in the deck for her vampire making effect, and I only have a little splash of madness. Also, you can only discard as you cast, meaning instant speed madness shenanigans don't work with her. Stromkirk Condemned made way more sense as a madness enabler/lord. Still, she's a 3 drop vampire, and there are several creatures that she could be swapped out for in a deck with more reanimation/madness.
