Stromkirk Occultist Discussion

MasterWithAPlan on Amonkhet mono-red deck

I'd be willing to bet there are more red cards with madness that may have a place here. Abandon Reason, Distemper of the Blood, Avacyn's Judgment, or Stromkirk Occultist possibly.

I'm unsure if this is out of your budget but Captivating Vampire is amazing! I also suggest finding room for these cards:

Dark Impostor, removal on a stick, with exile to boot. Can take over games if left unchecked.

Indulgent Aristocrat A nice sac outlet that buffs your vampires.

Dictate of Erebos with a sac outlet is insane. Grave Pact also belongs here but is a bit more expensive.

Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet removal on a stick, and creates more Vampires.

Stromkirk Condemned can buff your vamps and works well with graveyard synergies and discard synergies.

Voldaren Pariah  Flip is a big vamp and works well with Dictate of Erebos/Grave Pact.

Olivia, Mobilized for War makes non vamps into vamps. Gives haste and buffs them up.

Stromkirk Occultist can create card advantage. Hard to argue with that.

Sengir Nosferatu because this is the single most flavorful vampire in mtg.

Hope these suggestions were helpful! Let me know if i could do anything more to help!

I'll throw in Furyblade Vampire, I like that I can discard a card and it can become a 4/2. I still need more madness cards. I'm not a fan of Stromkirk Occultist because it makes me exile cards that I could be discarding. Should I keep Olivia's Dragoon or should I replace it with a madness card? Perhaps Bloodhall Priest

i like Furyblade Vampire more than Bloodmad Vampire but i think it would still be solid for your deck, the madness is great on Stromkirk Occultist

Should I add Bloodmad Vampire to the deck? I like the fact that when it deals combat damage to a player I can add +1/+1 counters to it. Or should I add Stromkirk Occultist? The trample would be nice for only 2 mana.

Bomat Courier generally dies real easy and becomes useless towards the late game, so I would neglect to run a play set of them. Also Flameblade Adept as a card is a little underwhelming I don't think it is any better than 1 drops like Dread Wanderer.

Amaizing cards in these types of decks would be Olivia, Mobilized for War and Bloodhall Priest. Olivia, Mobilized for War has synergy with every other creature and Fiery Temper, and Bloodhall Priest can shoot down small blockers they have or just get that extra two damage to their face to finish them off.

Im also not a fan of Alms of the Vein. it just doesn't do as much as some of the other madness cards like Stromkirk Occultist which gets around the problem where heckbent decks generally run out of cards to play.

Key to the City also seems pretty useless to me, in control matchups there wont really be any creatures to get around, and in agro matchups good removal like Fatal Push or Magma Spray (If you need to stay with a low budget) can effectively make your creatures almost impossible to block and reduces the counter attack your opponent will have.

Over all I really think your only missing to must haves which are the Olivia, Mobilized for War and the Bloodhall Priest. I would run a play set of both of those easily.

You also don't have a sidebored which can easily lose you games at Friday Night Magic. Your worst matchups are probably going to be any Zombie or marvel deck. A few sidebord cards can fix you up against these two types of decks though. In my black-red agro deck I run a play set of Magma Spray in the side, because it deals with Scrapheap Scrounger, Dread Wanderer, Cryptbreaker, and significantly reduces the power of Diregraf Colossus. I also would run at least three Release the Gremlins because it is your only real good answer to Aetherworks Marvel. The last real card you absolutly need in your Sidebord is Transgress the Mind, because its just good against control decks that like to hold onto big scary gearhulks. the rest of your sidebord you can play around with.

Overall great deck for only being sixty dollars, you have some great stuff going for you. You seem like a fun magic player. :)

Kevaka on Hazoret's Madness

Run Archfiend of Ifnir in place of Glorybringer.

Run Fiery Temper in place of Ruthless Sniper.

Run Heir of Falkenrath  Flip in place of Olivia's Dragoon

Run Incorrigible Youths in place of Stromkirk Occultist

Run Flameblade Adept.

Sideboard Lost Legacy.

Cut Stromkirk Condemned for 3 lands.

Think about Asylum Visitor and Biting Rain

Key to the City is always nice.

Sweltering Suns is good if the board gets to out of control.

Possibly run one Hazoret's Monument.

Scarab Feast is good against graveyard decks.
