Tithe Drinker Discussion

chaoticsoldier on I Can't Believe It's Not Not Pauper!

Some very outdated replies below. Thanks for your input everyone!

Thanks KoriAne! I tested it quite a bit and I have added 2 Beckon Apparition based on your suggestion.

gabrielguieiro, I had a go with Gift of Orzhova but I found it to be a little slow. All my other enchantments cost 1 and I prefer the speed. However it is excellent later in the game to make more flyers when I need them. The evasion sometimes makes all the difference.

Hey festerfizzle. I'd prefer to have Tithe Drinker over Putrid Warrior because the extort often gets used multiple times per turn, and where the opponent loses the life, I gain it. It also has lifelink too. If you're making a similar deck, one playset of creatures is probably enough as creatures can be cast more reliably.

eyes2sky, my deck also fares poorly against burn. If they're tapped out early and I can cast a lifelinker and enchant it enough in one turn so it's too big to kill with a few burn spells, I might stand a chance. But by game 2 they'll catch on and leave some lands untapped and I'll have trouble retaining my creatures. I side in Pay No Heed and Castigate against burn players, but that's all I've got. It helps a little. Ideally, you should use some Circle of Protection: Red. That's your best bet. I rarely encounter pauper burn though, so my sideboard doesn't have it.

Trollordz, well this might be part of the problem, you are wanting to do too much in a single deck. A focused deck tends to be more efficient, for a couple of reasons. First every card in your deck is working towards the same central goal. Second you tend to be running fewer colours, so your mana base is more reliable.

Control decks which are also aggro focused would tend towards being red blue. Red has lots of hasty creatures and blue has lots of counterspells, they also both have cards which care (examples include Goblin Electromancer and Kiln Fiend) about sorcery and instant card types. However neither blue nor red care about lifegain. White and black care about lifegain (lifelink examples include Tithe Drinker and Gifted Aetherborn) and it is possible to build a black white control deck or a black white aggro deck, but it would be a challenge to do both.

Ingest is in effect a mill (named for Millstone, but also cards like Altar of the Brood) trigger that happens to exile and is reliant on creature damage. It's fine for what it is but it only appears on 9 cards and milling an opponent isn't really the most efficient way to win.

I guess my core advice to you is to refine what it is you really want as the focus of your deck and then once you have that answer it should be easier to bring the deck down to the normal 60 cards and either mono coloured or two colours.

These would be on my shortlist to replace: Crimson Honor Guard, Kheru Mind-Eater, Licia, Sanguine Tribune, Mathas, Fiend Seeker, Skeletal Vampire, Tithe Drinker, Vein Drinker, Skeletal Scrying, Kabira Crossroads, Curse of Disturbance, Curse of Vitality, Outpost Siege, Sanguine Bond, Consuming Vapors, Damnable Pact, Well of Lost Dreams

These are the first things I'd try to find a place for: Legion Lieutenant, Forerunner of the Legion, Champion of Dusk, Indulgent Aristocrat, Sanctum Seeker, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Bishop of Rebirth, Mirror Entity,Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Vanquisher's Banner, Stensia Masquerade, Cathars' Crusade

If you're willing to spend the money these seem worth it to me: Shared Animosity, Anointed Procession, Phyrexian Arena, Twilight Prophet, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Drana, Liberator of Malakir

You can also go to edhrec.com and look up your commander to find a list of suggestions for the deck.

In general, it's a good idea to replace a card with one that does something similar. Like replace something that draws cards with something else that draws cards, or something that removes you opponents' stuff with something else that does that. The deck is already well balanced so you mostly just need to put in some upgrades and take out the cards that aren't focused. Also try to be careful not to replace too many cards with other cards that cost more mana.

You can spend almost as much money upgrading a mana base as you like. In particular, you want to replace lands that come into play tapped with ones that don't. These are some lands you could get that are relatively cheap: Unclaimed Territory, Caves of Koilos, Battlefield Forge, Smoldering Marsh, Graven Cairns, and Foreboding Ruins

Vault of the Archangel doesn't get you colored mana but it offers some great utility.

Sorry for the late reply; I've been on vacation. Some thoughts on the cards you mentioned:

Stensia Masquerade - Is a pretty solid card and I've thought about running it multiple times, just not entirely sure what I'd take out in its place. I would say that currently I prefer anthem effects that buff immediately.

Reconnaissance - I think this is a really awesome card for Edgar decks and now I'm trying to see if I can find a slot for it in my own list. Thanks for reminding me this card exists.

Markov Blademaster - I did have it in the deck at one point and I think it's a great inclusion for some of the flex vampire slots in this deck.

Kheru Bloodsucker - I'm personally not a fan of this card. I think it's way too situational and there are much better aggressive you could be running over this card. The art also creeps me out; Tarkir vampires fuel nightmares.

Tithe Drinker - I've tested this card and IMO if you want to run a extort effect, Blind Obedience is a much better inclusion (even though it's not a vampire for Edgar triggers) as it is far more cohesive with the aggro strategy of this deck. I think Tithe Drinker performs much better in an aristocrats style deck.

Gifted Aetherborn - Honestly I can't give you a good explanation as to why I don't run this card; it's got so much value attached to it for 2 mana. I know I've considered adding it to my list, not sure why I haven't done that yet. Run this card, it's pretty fantastic.

Sorry for a second post. I really wish that we could edit posts...

How do you feel about these four vamps?

Markov Blademaster- Extra +1/+1's for first strike and regular damage (and we have other cards that offer this buff, which makes it even better)

Kheru Bloodsucker- It's not uncommon to have all of our vamps have 4 toughness.

Tithe Drinker- Lifelink. Also, a little extra reach every time you play something.

Gifted Aetherborn- Just seems decent for 2cmc.

Elrias on Sisters of the Monument

I would actually consider Bontu's Monument. It's essentially another Soul Sister that also helps you win, and you could reduce some of the Oketra Monuments for it, as they are legendary anyway and dead in multiples. Of course, Bontu's Monument also creates the idea for a black splash. Sadly there don't seem to be many multicolored black and white cards that would seem to do much for the strategy, safe for some Tithe Drinker's maybe.
