Tribute to Hunger Discussion

I don't really know modern well but here's some random thoughts/suggestions

Skeletal Scrying, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx

tormod's crypt over Bojuka Bog only makes sense to me if being able to activate at instant speed is important

Smallpox plays well with bloodghast (but not 6 drops)

tombstalker over Gurmag Angler or Tasigur, the Golden Fang?

Lashwrithe - cut shizo for a swamp if you play this. Actually, mutilate is probably reason enough that it should be a swamp. I think this card is possibly actually better than obliterator?

I'm kind of surprised at your lack of turn 2 plays. Relentless Dead is probably worse than bloodghast, but being able to block matters a lot when it matters. Bitterblossom also exists

possible things to help against aggro: Drown in Sorrow, Tendrils of Corruption, Tribute to Hunger, Consuming Vapors, or just more cheap removal probably.


Uri on Need deckbuilding help / advice ...

So I'm playing MTG now for almost two months, but I keep having one big struggle; making a deck that actually meets a decent strength level. Right now, my decks are constantly just 'looking' nicely (in my perspective...) but when actually coming into play, they are absolutely horrible. But hey, lacking is learning.

So what I'm trying to do, is actually build some themed decks. While my arsenal of commons/uncommons is pretty big, I do have to add a big sidenote that I'm definetly not gonna spend hundreds of euros into a single deck (I've already went pretty far on this hobby.) For this thread, I'm seeking for advice on a Vampire themed deck.

The vampire deck is majorly Black, containing some card-discarding spells to activate Madness. The other vampires usually do some strong damage, or buff other vampires. It also contains a tiny amount of zombies/skeletons that can be returned from the Graveyard, to feed the Indulgent Aristrocrats, as well as a tiny bit more healing.

Below are some cards that I have available, that are (i think?) suitable to play in a vampire deck:

Black:Heir of Falkenrath  Flip - Vampire Noble - Sinister Concoction - Murderous Compulsion - Grotesque Mutation - Macabre Waltz - Sanitarium Skeleton - Carrier Thrall - Kalastria Healer - Nirkana Assassin - Kalastria Nightwatch - Vampiric Rites - Stromkirk Mentor - Twins of Maurer Estate - Alms of the Vein - Farbog Revenant - Olivia's Bloodsworn - Indulgent Aristocrat - Falkenrath Noble - Tribute to Hunger - Barter in Blood - Mark of the Vampire

Red:Markov Blademaster - Stensia Masquerade - Insolent Neonate - Vampiric Fury - Bloodmad Vampire - Falkenrath Gorger -Rakish Heir - Voldaren Duelist - Tormenting Voice - Madcap Skills -Act of Treason - Traitorous Instinct -Burn from Within -Viashino Racketeer -Sanguinary Mage - Avacyn's Judgment

You're not going to use the Mad one drop vampire or the new Olivia?

Plus the deck should have Tribute to Hunger in here for flavor and good use against Bogles.

Yeah, that would crazy, but I was meaning like Tribute to Hunger, Geth's Verdict, Devour Flesh, etc.

Unless budget is an issue Dismember is much better than Grasp of Darkness and Go for the Throat. It kills bigger things like Reality Smasher, and can be cast for only 1 mana. I'd take out 2 of each personally, since Go for the Throat is generally better, but is dead against Affinity. Terminate would be my choice to fill up the other removal slots over what you have now, but it is also a bit pricey comparatively.

I don't believe Diabolic Edict is modern legal? Tribute to Hunger is a solid option, but I like Devour Flesh over Cruel Edict at least, instant speed let's you bait them into playing more auras before you kill their guy during combat. However as a previous poster suggested, Gatekeeper of Malakir is better than all of these, and possibly deserves some mainboard slots even due to its potency against all creature decks, but especially Eldrazi.

I think you want the playset of Vampire Nighthawk, card is just too good in so many matchups, and is never really a dead card. I'd cut some of either Pulse Tracker or Guul Draz Vampire, both seem a bit eh.

Finally, I think you want more Duress and some Nihil Spellbomb, and maybe even Memoricide, in your sideboard to help deal with combo decks, which seem tough for you otherwise.

I only play Tiny Leaders but wouldn't Sadistic Sacrament be useful here too? Creature-hate cards that are flavorful: Feast of Blood, Tribute to Hunger, and Go for the Throat. How about adding Blade of the Bloodchief? A vampire that equips that can get crazy big fast specially if you have cards like Bloodthrone Vampire or Bloodflow Connoisseur. Consume Spirit as another finisher/creature killer? You can check my TL deck (Drana's Diminutive Denizens) for other vampire-centric cards that you may like.

to put some more life gain in your deck i would suggest Feast of Blood, Tribute to Hunger, and Whip of Erebos. my vampire deck seems to always benefit from those

hope this helps.

Try out Devour Flesh or Tribute to Hunger. They are vastly superior.
