YellaFeva on You Have How Much Life?!?!?!

Nice deck! I would suggest Tainted Remedy because it combos with Beacon of Immortality for a one shot kill and it also shuts down any life gain opponents have.

TheRedMage is right, but if you want to do that, I would use Tainted Remedy.

cool skywatcher! I actually stumbled across the idea in a three player game in which an opponent put a Tainted Remedy out and I was able to use my lifegain to strike the other opponent. That said, I'm not the first to explore this concept. I think people usually run more black.

I think as a sideboard idea Tainted Remedy would fit comfortably somewhere in here.. Suggestion only

recommend Smoke and Crawlspace. pretty cheap for massive payoff. Subversion or other extort cards work pretty well with this type of deck - I would cut out some of the anti-life gain though, as it hits you. erebos and Tainted Remedy would be enough in most decks. lastly, since you seem to run alot of artifacts, could I reccomend Underhanded Designs? it's a drain source that triggers off artifacts, and doubles as a kill spell mid to late game.

venok I have thought about Palace Siege and after seen how effect Tainted Remedy is against my Pain & Life i think it might be a good idea, though very few players in the group i noramlly play with gain life in that high a quatity but i will keep it in mind and see how the decks i play against do with the life gain.

NV_1980 thank you for comment. its the type of comment i find usful as i stuggle to find cards to take out for the ones that have been sudjested. i definalty like the idea of Pariah's Shield. With Waste Not i can see where it has its uses but as im not primeraly making players discard cards i belive it will have a limited effect. Bloodchief Ascension on the other hand can be very effective early on thanks for the idea.

I've been trying to cut cards for the past +-4 hours now, and I just now realized.. this deck would be so much better if I focused on soldiers instead of vampires. Maybe even a hybrid deck where we sacrifice soldier tokens to make vampires stronger. I still want to keep the life gain in there though.

@PaulaTicks That wording bothered me though, if it still work then it would be nice, especially in a more voltron-ey deck with more activiated abilities. But, as it is now, I don't have enough to make copy cards worth the inclusion. Also, Chandra's Ignition is going to be a game-winning card, what the hell.. the potential on that is insane, coupled with lifelink even more so.

@greatgoofini: Oh I was typing this up as you posted, good timing :D.

I took Congregate out earlier! but if I do switch to a soldier-vampire hybrid like I'm thinking of.. I'll definitely take it back in because it's going to be just way too good. if so, War Report can join in as well , nice find :)

Tainted Remedy is something I'll have to watch out for as well.. could totally break this deck.
