Creature — Vampire
Ascend (If you control ten or more permanents, you get the city's blessing for the rest of the game.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, if you have the city's blessing, reveal the top card of your library and put it into your hand. Each opponent loses X life and you gain X life, where X is that card's converted mana cost.
Twilight Prophet Discussion
10 hours ago
Hi! Some ideas. Lands: Temple of Malice , Path of Ancestry . Artifacts: Rings of Brighthearth or Illusionist's Bracers ( Olivia Voldaren likes it for sure). Card advantage: Champion of Dusk , Twilight Prophet + Doom Whisperer (to get City Blessing is not a big problem in EDH and these two cards are great together). Creatures: Markov Blademaster , Falkenrath Marauders . Removal: Bedevil . Board wipe: Damnation .

Mardu Heart-Piercer by Karl Kopinski is my absolute favorite.
TL;DR - my full thoughts on the piece. Mostly copied from a forum a few years back.
Mongolian aesthetic, armor and weaponry, and culture has always caught my eye, so it makes sense why this piece would stand out to me.
I love the decision to paint a female rider. Goes well with the Mardu theme, and taking one look at the rider tells you without a doubt that she's an experienced warrior, rider, and archer.
Kopinski's painting style is one of my favorites; the way he shows extreme detail while also holding a loose, unfinished feel really defines what a great painting is for me.
Kopinski's color pallet is extremely pleasing, simultaneously expressing warmth and action with oranges, browns and reds. The way the shiny silver and gold contrasts the earthy tones is great, and the way the ground blends into the sky at the horizon is masterfully done in a way that you don't realize it's happening at first.
The way Kopinski tilts the horizon adds such speed and motion to the piece. It gives you a disorienting feeling, as being in a battle riding a horse would. The way the armor, clothing, and hair are flap around in the wind and the riding motion of the horse add to this effect.
The contradicting directions of the horse and the rider fascinate me as well. The horse pulls you to the left, while the rider pulls you up and then to the right, and the horizon lines up with both, forcing you to examine the piece as a whole to really understand what's going on, then allowing you to look again and appreciate the separate parts.
I love the contrast between the horse and it's riders faces. The horse looks terrified, like this is it's first battle, but is still obeying it's rider faithfully. The Warrior on the other hand, is the definition of poise and serenity in battle. Calmly taking aim at an enemy, zero expression on her face as she's about to let fly and snuff out a life. Cold but understandable.
That makes me thing of how this piece would fit into a larger battle scene. Notice how there's no one else pictured. The horse seems to be going away from the battle on the right, where the archer is aiming. It's almost as if the experienced warrior knows her inexperienced horse couldn't handle the thick of the action, so has instead chosen to circle the battle and use her prowess with her bow to use her new horse most effectively.
I could rave all day about this work. Thank you magic Man Sam for featuring this in your video :)
I also really like Unfulfilled Desires by D. Alexander Gregory.

It's a pretty good list! If you want to see a deck list me and a buddy of mines, (TheErebos) brewed up here is the link to his deck!~

It's a tight list and super explosive, I would also highly recommend running Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle as he is a beast. Twilight Prophet is also a pet favorite card and helps you really draw. Champion of Dusk is also a great burst draw to refill your hand.
Hope that helps!

Twilight Prophet , Wear / Tear , Silence , and Faith's Reward are all great cards to run when encountering most situations. Skullclamp should also be added in for the powerful card advantage it gives.
Hope that helps!

Hi! I'm also a fan of Vampiric tribe and I like your deck. Some ideas. I think you can replace Razaketh, the Foulblooded with Doom Whisperer . Whisperer is a very powerful card especially when paired with Twilight Prophet . I also recommend to look at Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and Elenda, the Dusk Rose - both are great token generators. Not sure about Duress - it's fun in Standard but I think it's mediocre in multi-player format. Replace it with Vampiric Tutor (depends on the budget of course). Speaking about removals: Bedevil and Vraska's Contempt look promising. And don't forget about card advantage! It's vital in EDH. Phyrexian Arena , Necropotence , Underworld Connections , Vampiric Rites (by the way it works well with Blood Artist ) - you definitely need at least one of these. You also need Wrath of God or Damnation as board wipes and Unbreakable Formation as a protection against board wipes (optionally). Good luck in brewing!

Stuff I'd cut:
Duskborne Skymarcher - not enough impact
Erdwal Ripper - bad
Falkenrath Exterminator bad
Furyblade Vampire good for madness but not for this deck
Havengul Vampire not good enough
Kheru Bloodsucker bad
Licia, Sanguine Tribune only good as commander in a deck built around him. Here it's just bad for 8 mana
Nirkana Revenant not bad but not really that useful either since only about a thrid of your lands are swamps anyways
Voracious Vampire bad
Stuff I'd definitely add:
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodline Keeper Flip
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle
Butcher of Malakir
Shadow Alley Denizen
Stuff I'd consider adding:
Bishop of Binding
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Legion's Landing Flip
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Patron of the Vein
Urge to Feed
Blood Baron of Vizkopa
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Voldaren Pariah Flip
Details as for why I'd add certain cards and cut others I'll give you the next time we get to talk :)

Here are my recommendations: Cut: Defiant Bloodlord (7 mana for a lackluster body, decent effect, and no protection = meh), Manabarbs (Most people, if not all at the table will target you when you play this), Blood Baron of Vizkopa (Very specific second half of this ability makes it a 5 mana 4/4 lifelinker 99% of the time), Iroas, God of Victory (Your deck does not have enough creatures to make use out of the ability; the boros god shines really well in decks that go wide), and Odric, Lunarch Marshal (You mostly have lifelink and flying on your creatures. His ability won't get you too much value most of the time)
Add: Tymna the Weaver (Lifelink, early draw, and low mana cost), Crackling Doom (Insane removal that mardu has access to), Rakdos's Return (Phenomenal in 1v1; good in multiplayer and it helps finish players off after you whittled them down), Twilight Prophet (Life drain and card advantage-low cmc), and Test of Endurance (might as well, since you are running Aetherflux Reservoir and Felidar Sovereign )

If you can get them, Radiant Destiny and Sanctum Seeker are incredibly powerful, and would really help you if you're trying to be competitive. Also I would personally suggest Bishop's Soldier , Adanto Vanguard , and Sadistic Skymarcher as solid early drops. Also, Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Champion of Dusk , and Twilight Prophet are very powerful cards. Good luck, vampires are awesome! +1
