Tragic Slip Discussion

nlidmaster on B/W Lifelink Deathtouch Vampires

Im also trying to make a BW deck myself. Serra Avatar and Soul of Theros are really cool cards, but can only function in a commander deck since they cost so much to play. Id recommend removing them. Maybe replace them with Yahenni, Undying Partisan which benefits from the deathtouch and kill cards you have. Also, instead of Murder, I would use Mortify, since it does the same thing but also targets enchantments. Tragic Slip might also be helpful since your deck will be killing a lot of things anyways which will trigger its second ability. Youre going to want some one mana cost creatures if youre going to play this in modern. Since you have lots of vampires, I recommend Indulgent Aristocrat. He can pump up your other creatures, and has the added benefit of triggering tragic slips second ability. Lastly, for your mana base, put in a Vault of the Archangel or two. Boom, everything has deathtouch and lifelink.

I would suggest moving the 2 Killing Wave to your sideboard and replacing them with Tragic Slip. In modern you'll typically have more creatures than them, so it hurts you more. In addition you already have tons of kill/sac abilities, a few more removal could round it out nicely. Everything is dying anyways! :D

Stuff like Tragic Slip will kill indestructible creatures (unless they have more than 13 toughness). Oblivion Ring type effects will also work, as will Swords to Plowshares and Burn from Within. These are examples of cards that interact with it.

I'm not too sure how much there is to be gained by staying exclusively human tribal. It seems like there's already a heavy token theme to the deck, which makes Intangible Virtue a better option than trying to build around Mayor of Avabruk and Champion of the Parish.

If you branch out more into token-territory, you can play stuff like Promise of Bunrei, Lingering Souls, or Voice of Resurgence. Just think of a play where you sacrifice Young Wolf to Bloodthrone Vampire, triggering Promise of Bunrei, sacrifice the tokens to Bloodthrone Vampire, then activate Skirsdag High Priest, then finally casting Tragic Slip/Fatal Push to clear away any blockers.

What is your budget for the deck? I think regardless you should make an exception for a Cabal Coffers at least. But theres heaps of good cheap/moderately priced black cards you could run; Contamination Yahenni, Undying Partisan Victimize Torment of Hailfire Patron of the Vein Bloodghast Painful Quandary Necropotence Exsanguinate Kindred Dominance Tragic Slip Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

Yep, i have two opponents: one have a red dragon/burn with the biggest threats be the likes of Ball Lightning, Thundermaw Hellkite and Vexing Devil on turn one every single time lol. The other one has a green elves but i already beaten him easily with some mass removal like Infest.

I've got one Tragic Slip, but i think it's a lot situational, since if it is the only spot removal in my hand i'll be in trouble with a mere -1/-1. I've 4xVictim of Night sideboarded and well, i think i must try first and see if the Fatal Pushes can be good or replace them.

I've got even 2xSurgical Extraction sideboarded and i find it really useful... but i'm afraid to find it when i would need better a discard. Even this i must try first!

So if you agree that 4xVampiric Link is better than 2xVampiric Link+2xIvory Tower, i'll change them!

Thanks bro!

You know, I was thinking about Tragic Slip also for some of the bigger creatures you may deal with. Fatal Push is nice as a one drop for sure but there are a lot of Doom Blade types cards as well such as Walk the Plank, Murder and Go for the Throat. Those could be something to consider as well.

I like your thinking on getting rid of Ivory Tower for two more Vampiric Link's. What about Surgical Extraction? That seems like it could help you out with removing some threats in the deck as well. I remember you saying you were running this deck against cards like Ball Lightning correct?
