Tithe Drinker Discussion

KingRamz on Edgar Markov

2 weeks ago

Good old Edgar! Sure, I'll give you some suggestions. For reference, here is my Edgar Markov deck. If you take a look at that to compare card choices, one thing to note is I'm running Vampire Nocturnus so I intentionally avoided nonblack cards, so you'll want to keep that in mind.

Manabase

Akoum Refuge is another lifegain dual land if you want a fourth. It was only an ally-colored cycle so that's the only one of those you can run. Myriad Landscape is great and goes in almost any deck. Since this deck is so heavy in black, you might want to look at Tainted Peak and Tainted Field.

Card suggestions

If you want to be aggressive, how about some one-drops? Viscera Seer is perfect for this deck. Easy include. I was also excited to discover Shadow Alley Denizen, though I haven't gotten to cast her myself in the deck yet. Getting intimidate off your Vampire tokens seems like it should be good for chipping in some extra damage.

Extort seems like it plays perfectly with your theme. Tithe Drinker would fit nicely. Blind Obedience is absolutely amazing.

Other cards, let's see... Sangromancer is very efficient and should play well here. Vampiric Rites lets you turn extra dorks into life and cards. It's not as efficient as Skullclamp, but you only get to run one of those. How about Mathas, Fiend Seeker? An evasive low-drop that draws cards and gains life sounds perfect!

Cut suggestions

Chalice of Life  Flip - Doesn't gain life very fast and even a Lava Axe every round gives your opponents plenty of time to respond. If you want a way to win outside the combat phase, kill the table with Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless.

Licia, sanguine Tribune - I think Licia is cool, but she really needs a deck built around her. You aren't going to want to spend 7-8 mana to cast her and your deck isn't set up to gain huge chunks of life without investing mana that turn. You've got a few ways to do it, but without those she's kind of a brick.

Damnable Pact - this card feels like a bad Braingeyser and a bad Blaze. Flexibility is nice, but I don't think the efficiency tradeoff is worth it in this case. If you want an X-spell finisher, see above. If you want to draw cards, there are plenty of efficient spells like Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Painful Truths, and Read the Bones. Or you could check out Vampiric Rites.

Diabolic Tutor - Four mana for a tutor is just so expensive. I'd rather just cast a card draw spell.

Defiant Bloodlord - Ok, so hear me out. I have had this guy in my hand in lifegain decks and man, I never want to spend seven mana on him. He's so much easier to kill than Sanguine Bond and, unlike Butcher of Malakir, you are unlikely to be able to make good use of his static ability the turn you cast him.

Drakon562 on C17 Vampires - What are ...

1 month ago

I personally don't think Pawn of Ulamog deserves a spot in the deck, but that's because I'm playing a full out aggressive deck. I don't really like the life-gain aspect of vampires if it's front and center, so Licia, Sanguine Tribune, Tithe Drinker, Falkenrath Noble, and Vampire Nighthawk came out as well. I also cut Vein Drinker, Skeletal Vampire, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Kheru Mind-Eater, Bloodhusk Ritualist, Crimson Honor Guard and Sangromancer.

All of this is what I cut from my deck, because its a beatdown/swarm deck. Things that take away from that don't deserve a spot. Butcher of Malakir is still in because I can kill my things to make them lose things, so I can punch them.

All and all, I think that you definitely should play some games with the precon, and see what does and doesn't work for you. I have a friend who plays Licia, Sanguine Tribune and goes for more of a pillowfort/lifegain deck. It's really up to you. Hope this helped.

Alkadron on Death dealer, life stealer

If you're happy with the mana-base, then leave it alone. But keep an eye on it going forward - keep track of every time you miss land-drops, and every time you think to yourself "what terrible luck! not enough mana for what I want to do!" It may not be luck. ;)

Also, if you're gaining lots of life all the time (it looks like you are), you may want to consider Aetherflux Reservoir. The lifegain effect is nice, and the death-laser ability can be game-ending, if you've got the resources.

Other sweet vampires you may want to consider:

I can tell you put some serious work into this one; it looks good! The Sorin's and Olivia's are on point for sure. Good work!

Pieguy396 on Mad Dash: Vampires

2 months ago

Hey there! Nice deck you have here! Addressing your questions in order:

First, I would recommend cutting the following cards:

You may notice a theme with the above cards: They're mostly low-CMC Vampires with a small effect. While I rarely play super-aggro EDH decks, the fact that you're facing usually 3 opponents with 40 life each means that simply having a lot of creatures doesn't do a lot. Edgar Markov makes a lot of tokens on his own, which can all grow absurdly large, so I really don't think you should be focused on spending your cards on weenies when you can be doing better things.

As for your other concerns:

  • I really don't think Well of Lost Dreams has a place here. It's best in heavy-lifegain decks that lack other strong ways (and need strong ways) to draw cards, neither of which is a good descriptor for this deck.
  • Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Door of Destinies, on the other hand, absolutely belong in here. Door is one of the strongest cards tribal-aggro decks have in the format, and Purphoros is excellent in any deck looking to swarm the board.

Some other suggestions:- Bojuka Bog- Blade of the Bloodchief- Bloodcrazed Paladin- Vanquisher's Banner- Anointed Procession- Vampire Nocturnus (maybe)- Path to Exile

In any case, hope this helps! Good luck!

Pieguy396 on Kokusho the lifegain dragon

2 months ago

Hey there! Cool deck you have here! I'm not fully sure whether you want a Kokusho-focused deck with a lifegain subtheme, or a lifegain-focused deck with a Kokusho subtheme, so I'll give you tips for both:

Kokusho-focused:

You generally want a lot of ways to find your Kokushos, as well as ways to return them from the graveyard, so I'll focus on those two.

If you're focused on more of a lifegain theme, I'd go with some of the following:

I should also say that I'm generally not a fan of cards that do nothing but gain you life. Chaplain's Blessing and Alms of the Vein can be good, sure, but they generally don't actually do anything.

Regardless of which version you're actually looking for, I would also recommend adding in some more removal, probably at least 5 copies total of the following: Doom Blade, Murder, Oust, Condemn, Dismember.

In any case, good luck with your deck!

reelronin on Vampire Lifelink

I would suggest Blood-Cursed Knight, great for a 3 drop and is within your mana pool color combinations. Indulgent Aristocrat, allows the lifelink and an increase of counters for the late game. Same goes for Vampire Cutthroat nice to have if the other player has strong creatures. And this is a great card against a control scenario Tithe Drinker.

bem77 on Ayli Shutdown the Board

NV_1980 I was thinking of cutting Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Healer of the Pride for Tithe Drinker and Burnished Hart.

While Mikaeus is a beast of a card, I have 12 cards with the Human type line that this card does not synergize with.
