kamarupa How many lands do I need to splash in mana for blue and white? The only card I'm going tp play for blue mana is traumatize since I'm going to play Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur from the grave. So this far it is 8 lands for spending it on two cards. However, I still think splashing in some white could be a good idea.

Like I mentioned before, the card Tithe Drinker could be an idea or something similar with extort. I guess there could be some cards that I can use to gain life from the taxing of my opponent.

Also, you may have noticed I added Dark Petition to the deck.

kamarupa I have slept on my decision, and decided to add your suggestion Painful Quandary to the deck. Because I think you are right about it being a strong card for "taxing" your opponent. As for taxing, it's all about punishing your opponent for doing certain moves and making it harder for him to play cards as well as absorb his life. So that's why this card feels strong for me right now. It would also be nice with some combo in the deck that triggers effects that makes painful quandry go off. That's why I want to build this deck around gitaxias. Got any suggestions for other taxing cards? Two cards that I can think of that tax the opponent by an ultimatumare Dash Hopes and Temporal Extortion. They give the opponent a choice and then he gets to chose between losing life or something else.

The reason that i think Traumatize still may be a good choice is that, I need to get stuff from the grave, true, however, step one is getting them to the grave. I need something that mills my deck so i can get stuff from it. The ultimate would be playing a deck which both lets me play stuff from the grave and tax the opponent.

One simple example of a card that "taxes" the opponent could be Gnat Miser and is a classic one drop for decks that use discard and cards similar to that. I don't know whether you think that card is good and the reason it's excluded from the deck is that there are other solutions for making the opponent discard. Another thing that I'm considering for the deck is having some creatures with extort that lets you gain life and extort the opponent when he plays cards is Tithe Drinker. I know it's a black-white card, however there are some who play black-white extort aswell.

You're wise to be running cards that let you gain a bit of life multiple times rather than a big amount all at once, since of course Karlov triggers every time you gain life, no matter how much. In that vein, you might also appreciate some more cards with Tithe (Thrull Parasite gives you a potential use for all that life you're gaining, and Tithe Drinker comes with another way to gain life.) There's also Archangel of Thune, who presents a win condition that goes hand-in-hand with what you'll be doing anyway. I also can't resist suggesting Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant in any sort of white EDH deck!

All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.

Add the following Lands. They will trigger Regna, the Redeemer the turn she comes into play.
Blighted Steppe
Scoured Barrens
Seraph Sanctuary
Springjack Pasture
Kabira Crossroads

Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)

Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board

Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.

Create Mana
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.

You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.

Your enchantments are good.

Artifacts should be replaced with mana rocks or mana reduction effects like Sol Ring, Commander's Sphere, Oketra's Monument, and Bontu's Monument.

not feeling Falkenrath Gorger and Asylum Visitor since the creatures themselves have to be discarded first then you can pay the madness cost and you dont have self discard; Quag Vampires if you really need that one attacker to get through works with the play group; Tithe Drinker feel there are better vampires than this....

Bloodlord of Vaasgoth to help with late game and Kindred Charge for multiple triggers going off since the tokens are copies of the creatures and where is Panharmonicon

Since the majority of cards in your deck are black, I suggest Vampire Nocturnus, while the buff is conditional it's very strong and fairly consistent, especially with any draw/scry effects.

Tithe Drinker and Olivia's Bloodsworn can be surprisingly effective, especially if you get them out early.

Blasphemous Act and Vandalblast can be effectively combined into Merciless Eviction.

Crackling Doom is really strong. Also, Blood Tribute. Blast 'em.

Legion's Landing could be put in maybe in place of a plains or something, since it flips into a land so easily? Also Radiant Destiny is good, especially once you get the vigilance, which isn't hard to do with the tokens.

Sorin Markov, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are all strong additions, and cool flavor because your commander is already his granddad :P

Really cool deck, check out mine! ==> Russian Vampire Mafia

Honestly I'd leave in Rain of Filth as its just an absurd amount of mana as you're going off usually, though it is very all in. Unless I'm missing something maybe Lotus Petal is a better cut?

Cantrips are pretty amazing, so I'd say cut Thermo-Alchemist or Tithe Drinker for Fury Storm. You'd know which one you prefer but off the top of my head drinker doesn't need to somehow get haste or last a turn so there is that.

Hey all!

@jonfehl thank you so much for the kind words! Dude, that Edgar Markov storm deck sounds insanely fun to play. I feel like our decks are two shades of the same color!

@jj4622 it seems our minds are always going to the same place after new sets! I’ve had Fury Storm sitting in the que on my deck building spreadsheet ever since it was spoiled! I absolutely agree with you - during a Licia/Burnt Offering sequence Fury Storm let’s us go ham salad.

I am thinking of either cutting into the cantrips, cutting Tithe Drinker, or cutting Thermo-Alchemist. None feel great, and I think Fork, Reverberate, and Bonus Round all deserve to stay. Any ideas?

As a side note, I’m considering a few other changes. I recently acquired a revised Wheel of Fortune which is 100% going in. I am also planning to cut Rain of Filth for Sacrifice, as I realize now I definitely want two Burnt Offerings. Also, I’m adding Rugged Prairie because the price came down.
