Tormented Soul Discussion

Its ultimately up to you, I'd say its creature heavy but it is the players preference. I do say the 4 drop lifelink Vampire Outcasts seems useless other than small life upkeep and another creature with +1 counters. Also if you can't get Goblin Glory Chaser renowned he is worthless.

Maybe take Tormented Soul out or add one more. A small poke but hardly worth deck space with just 2. I CAN see why it is in there though.

I like your thinking, but Diabolic Tutor pretty much covers for Treasure Mage, and cards like Tormented Soul, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Victim of Night, Vampire Nighthawk, and Consuming Vapors all kinda help clear the way for Mr. Unbound. As for Elvis (or El Bruce), the only reason I have three of them is so that I can still have a chance if my demon dies to something like Doom Blade, Day of Judgment or Supreme Verdict.

With some Lifegain due to Battlegrace Angel + Tormented Soul and exalted your deck would get really on some nerves. +1 I like the idea.

to be honest i am new to this site so i barley know how to change some shit like category view. and im guessing its for casual.Vraska the Unseen was something i was just going to try out planeswalker wise. the theme idek, just gains life and puts decent tokens out on the field. and for stuffy doll wise i just like the card in general. back in the day when my brother used to play he ran shit with Stuffy Doll, and it has came to use plenty of times within this deck. Mark of the Vampire works all around also, with Tormented Soul or even Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis since its best to attack with him alone.

but thank you so much for the help man

benfit on Creating a standard deck

Hey!So I just got MTGO yesterday and today I started with a deck building. I really like the game, but at this point I don't want to spend money on it that much. I want to see how it goes, how tournaments work etc.

So today I found a deck on TappedOut that really fits my play stile - fast, undead and dirty :PIt looks something like thisDauthi SlayerGurmag SwiftwingTormented SoulVampire NighthawkDoom BladeUndying EvilBump in the NightPredator's GambitUnholy StrengthLashwrithe

Now only after I purchased it, I realized that it does not fit to standard rule set. Can you help me to adjust it to the standard rule set? Cheap as possible would be the key.

Hey AwesomeK! I like the idea behind this deck! I too have experimented with this type of deck before. I see you are looking for some advice so I'm just going start spitting ideas and maybe one will stick!

First thing I worry about with this deck is inconsistency. I do not like the red. I say cut the red and keep it in black/blue. This will keep you more consistent and speed up your mana base without forcing you to spend money on a good tri-color mana base.

Cut Deathcult Rogue and in place of him and your Hellspark Elemental run 4x Tormented Soul. I would also cut your Murmuring Phantasm all together because defenders are generally slow and you are playing unblockable so you should be offering up such a fast beatdown you don't want to waste turn 2 casting a slow defender. If you are absolutely sold on the idea of a defender I would switch to Wall of Frost for the stun effect and the fact that it comes in a turn later so you develop your aggression first then settle into a defense.

If you do take my advice and cut red then Deviant Glee is possibly out. If you do cut it I would replace it with Spectral Flight.

A huge improvement would be cutting your Gridlock and replacing it with Icy Blast. It is still an instant and with your buffed creatures has potential for a stun effect.

I love Hands of Binding but I would also cut something else to run a few Hidden Strings. It doesn't have the stun effect but it allows you to untap mana for Mana Leak/Think Twice or untap a blocker if you need one.

Dimir Infiltrator seems forced because it doesn't really transmute into anything. I would probably replace him with 3x Think Twice for card draw. The fourth along with your Vampire's Bite could be easily cut to make room for Hidden Strings.

I love that this is a super budget deck and all my other suggestions still fit into that budget for the most part but my final suggestion would be add maybe 2x Creeping Tar Pit. It is a slow land but if you end up running into a lot of removal early and do end up in a longer game you can still enchant this animated land with cipher spells and buffs such as Dark Favor and continue your beatdown.

Wow. I didn't mean to critique so many items but like I said you were looking for some advice and I feel like all these are solid suggestions. Don't forget that if you do take this advice you can also cut to about 20 or 21 lands total because your curve will be much smaller and if you don't put in Wall of Frost then the only 3 cost in the entire deck is the flashback on Think Twice and of course you have the mana sink of Icy Blast.

Hope this helps! I will leave a +1 regardless because I love the concept! Let me know if you like any of my suggestions and let me know if you need anything else or stumble across more awesome cards for this deck!
