Tragic Slip Discussion

With the relatively high number of 4 and 5 drop creatures youre running, you should maybe consider adding Dark Ritual to your deck so you can drop them on turn 2/3 instead of having to wait til turn 4/5 to get them out. Pther than that though, my only other suggestion is switching your Vampire Hexmage into the sideboard as they really are situational to what youre fighting against and putting the Blood Artists in their place as they will synergize with the very nice amount of kill cards youre running, being more consistantly useful against nearly every deck you face.

Thank you for your feedback. Especially about Tragic Slip, as it had never occurred to me. I thought id return the favor as an experienced vampire player :)

Also, i will definitely do some playtesting with Tragic Slip. My playset is currently being put to very good use in my Modern Fairies prototype, but i may consider picking up another set if it synergizes well.

solid deck. the only thing is I'd add more lands and try and get it to 60 cards. WI have a fairly similar deck except I don't have some of the more expensive cards. have you considered Tragic Slip? It's pretty easy to activate its morbid ability.

nice idea! +1

I am playing a mono black sacrifice deck with different mechanics but similar aim, you can find it over here: Nihilistic Pulse - MonoBlack sacrifice at its best

some of the cards i think you should consider are Grim Haruspex or Altar's Reap, Mortician Beetle could also be a nice one-drop in here, it would also synergize well with Retribution of the Ancients to create a solid removal barrage.

i've been trying Bone Splinters myself but i realized that sorcery speed is too limitating when it comes to removal spells, so i just replaced them with Go for the Throat.. maybe a Fallen Ideal could also be nice in here, or a cool removal might be Tragic Slip. many of the cards i mentioned are or were part of my deck, i'd like to hear your opinion about it :)

cheers buddy

I've considered Champion of the Parish. My main thing is that I really really would like to stray away from him. Almost all the decks I build are human based and he is always the first to be included, for obvious reasons, but I don't want my play style to get stale, if that makes any sense? Also, I do not want to rely on Cartel Aristocrat as my only sacrifice engine. You shouldn't underestimate the power of Viscera Seer's scry ability.

If I did include another sword, which would you suggest? I chose the Sword of Light and Shadow more so for the ability to reuse my creatures and gain life over the protection, which happens to be a nice little bonus.

If I took out Altar's Reap, I'd really like to replace it with another form of card advantage or a creature over Tragic Slip. Don't get me wrong, I like the removal it has, but to make it useful, I'd have to have Cartel Aristocrat out and really the only time I want to use her sac ability is when I'm attacking with her, or need to protect her, which is also why the Viscera Seer is in here, so my saccing always has a purpose.

Viscera Seer should probably just be Champion of the Parish. Also give some thought to Tragic Slip as a removal spell, perhaps instead of Altar's Reap, which isn't really card advantage. Other swords in the sideboard also seems good, as you can choose what colors you want to be protected from.

Hey there! I love this deck, especially because it's exalted (my first deck ran exalted). In general, you have a good deck but I do have some suggestions: You need to be running more Ajani, Caller of the Pride. His -3 is a game winner, as I'm sure you know, and drawing into him has saved me multiple times, and only having one severely limits the odds of that happening. Additionally, I would drop the numbers of creatures overall to add removal and hand hate. Tragic Slip is a great card, but it doesn't always work when you need it too. I run Path to Exile, but hey, there are several good candidates. Additionally, I would sideboard Duress to hit things that Inquisition of Kozilek can't, like Birthing Pod or Splinter Twin. Finally, I would run Vault Skirge instead of Vampire Nighthawk as you can turn one a Skirge and start beating your opponent. Great deck, +1! Here's my deck if you want to look: History Exalts a Chosen Few.
