Araignee on Pauper Golgari Tron

Hm, in the Golgari colours, repeatable, and pauper. Not easy, dude. I found multiple one-time solutions, though, if you pile them, it might do the trick.

For green, Elvish Visionary. He could replace the Zealot or you could play him as well instead of the Boa (I would put them to side against blue decks, because she does not help you to either draw or ramp, but is a good pillow, though.) But I could also see Viridian Emissary replace her to ramp for a land. Another stuff you might use: Explore = land ramp + draw. Abundant Growth: I sort of see it on the Urza lands.

In black, Read the Bones or Sign in Blood are classic. Or Altar's Reap that can also trigger Viridian Emissary. Another way is Aphotic Wisps. (For a multiplayer game, there is Syphon Mind).

SoulsSlayerKnight on Edgar Markov's Vampires and The Light

kamelyan Thanks for the ideas, yeah Mathas, Fiend Seeker was one I was going to replace after the next few cards I got since what you mentioned is the same reason I thought on why. Might have an Impact Tremors somewhere, I'll see. That Sword of the Animist sounds like a good card as it builds up the mana you'll need to summon more and it builds it up quicker. Thanks for the advice, I'll see about searching for some of these, Syphon Mind I have but mana cost is a bit high, 3 cards draw is a good effect that can make up for it however. I'll give a look, Thank you

In my vamp deck, I have Sword of the Animist and Purphoros, God of the Forge. The latter is an indestructible Impact Tremors, and extra mana can be used for some fire-breathing.

I would have kept Syphon Mind from the precon; it draws you three cards and offers hand disruption (but it also activates my Mindcrank and Bloodchief Ascension combo, so I'm a little biased (have to find workarounds to decks that don't let you swing)).

The only other card I can recommend to cull would be Mathas, Fiend Seeker. If you works for you, fine; but the giving of cards and life seems to be a huge drawback.

Saljen on Rat deck

Crypt Ghast would give you some ramp

Hollowborn Barghest isn't a rat, but the ability is quite good with your game plan.

Rackling same with this guy, another Rack but tied to a non-rat creature

Gibbering Descent, Bottomless Pit, Creeping Dread, and Necrogen Mists each give you reliable discard every turn

Oppression, painful quandry, and Geth's Grimoire give you more rewards when someone discards

Syphon Mind, Dark Deal, Smallpox, and Myojin of Night's Reach are all some good discard cards you're missing

Phyrexian Reclamation can let you re-play annoying creatures once people remove them, as well as provide draw for when you're top decking

Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a super solid black finisher and can keep you in the game a lot longer

Geier Reach Sanitarium gives you a discard trigger for everyone, and draws everyone another card which you can make them discard again

Attrition lets you use those rat tokens for repeatable removal

These are the cards that are probably under performing in your deck: Bone Splinters, Coercion, Death Stroke, Duress, Kaervek's Hex, Ostracize, Waking Nightmare, Ichor Rats, Typhoid Rats, Simulacrum, Subversion, Ordeal of Erebos,

Syphon Mind and Library of Leng might be good? Your meta might be more competitive than mine. Also you have Sire Of Insanity as your feature card and it's not in the deck...

kamelyan on Don’t Fear the Reaper

Meren can be nasty when you include cards like Dictate of Erebos, Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Sheoldred, Whispering One, and even something as simple as Awakening Zone.

You may also want to consider some more card draws; Phyrexian Arena and Syphon Mind are decent choices.
