Vampire Cutthroat Discussion

landofMordor on Your Opponent Hurt Themselves in their Confusion

1 day ago

Hm. For life gain, Vampire Nighthawk or Gifted Aetherborn all day long. Or Vampire Cutthroat even, to help in a damage race. To help with card draw, I'd cut the Kazuuls, since they are kinda a win-more condition. You could also experiment cutting the Arbiters or the Dragons, since deathtouch will trade with an opposing creature and you won't need to worry about minimizing the attacks.

Also, for the record, indestructible beats trample. Since there's no "lethal damage" dealt.

Perhaps a spell like Burn at the Stake would give you some late-game reach?

I would suggest Blood-Cursed Knight, great for a 3 drop and is within your mana pool color combinations. Indulgent Aristocrat, allows the lifelink and an increase of counters for the late game. Same goes for Vampire Cutthroat nice to have if the other player has strong creatures. And this is a great card against a control scenario Tithe Drinker.

Josh_Estrella Thanks for the response! :D Also thank you, this is my first EDH deck I've ever made, and everyone here is being incredibly helpful :) I actually just got some of my cards in the mail today. I added in my Viscera Seer, Tainted Field, Tainted Peak, Gifted Aetherborn, Vault of the Archangel, Isolated Chapel, Bishop of Rebirth, Stromkirk Noble, and my Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I still need all 4 tutors (which is going to murder my wallet) Necropotence, Shared Animosity, and a couple of others. I'll update my list tomorrow morning, it's pretty late right now. Anyway, I'll look into Toxic Deluge since I haven't gotten a Damnation yet. I was looking into Bloodghast, but I wasn't quite sure on it since I hadn't seen anyone mention it until now. Also, I already have a Necropolis Regent in there :) I had a Mephidross Vampire, but I opted for the Necropolis Regent instead. I do see what you are saying about the Butcher of Malakir though, 7 cmc for a 5/4 even though he does fly... I think something better can go there. Some stuff I have on hand right now is Vampire Cutthroat, Pulse Tracker, Tithe Drinker (not really a fan), Voldaren Pariah  Flip, and Olivia Voldaren just to name a few off the top of my head. I was thinking maybe one of the 1 drops? (kinda leaning towards Vampire Cutthroat maybe) I'm all ears for suggestions though. Anyway, I'm kinda worried that my list a little bit light on the vampires compared to what I hear you guys say you have. I think Frank_Glascock said he has 33 creatures 30 being vampires if I remember right... Oh, lastly have you guys considered a Vanquisher's Banner? I thought that might be an ok card draw tool... You guys are the experts though

Thanks for the response Lil_Kalki :) I put Captain Kirk Stromkirk Noble in there just to have another one drop vampire. I like how he can +1/+1 himself too. I think the other ones I was considering as far as 1 drops go were Shadow Alley Denizen or Vampire Cutthroat. Also, I wasnt completely sold on Viscera Seer being in there... Reconnaissance is pretty cool though, I just have to find a way to get one so I can try it out. Also, a I saw you guys mention Necropotence a few times, I forgot to put that in my maybe board or ask about it. Do you think that could replace something (like maybe Viscera Seer) for a card draw option?

as i learned with Vampire Cutthroat skulk on a 1/1 is basically unblockable.
Most deck don't run creatures with 1 power.
And even the ones that do, only run 4x, like burn with Monastery Swiftspear, or mono white death&taxes with Thraben Inspector

The only question about the creature is spending on turn 3, and the fact that it dies to removal (but that can be said about everything else).
Still considering that for , you get to draw, play a 3/2 colorless creature, and put a body in the grave for Skaab Ruinator i would say it's probably worth running.

Hello, from your post i just realized that i am not the only person who is tinkering with a deck built around Skaab Ruinator
So here is what ideas i came up with till now:

1# Build an all in deck with the best cheap mill spells, Hedron Crab, Minister of Inquiries, Shriekhorn (a few - as its sadly an artifact), Dream Twist, Contingency Plan - ad 3 playsets of "real" creatures Narcomoeba, Skaab Ruinator, Eternal Scourge - and a flex slot, that at the moment i fill with Stitchwing Skaab, but it could be Magus of the Bazaar.
The problem is that this version has obvious problems with stuff like Path to Exile, (and grave hate) despite being really fast.

2# Build a deck that abuses Gifts Ungiven with Skaab Ruinator as win condition (since this creature doesn't need slots devoted to Unburial Rites.
In such a shell Mulldrifter, Shriekmaw, Plaxmanta + Pit Keeper as a worse Snapcaster Mage would do well.
For turn one stuff like Siren Stormtamer/Martyr of Frost or stuff like Vampire Cutthroat would be ideal.

P.s.:Laboratory Maniac is a trap - for this deck.
There are alternatives that are a lot better - like Psychic Spiral + Mystic Retrieval which can work out of the graveyard, and mill the opponent out of nowhere.

Hi there! I worked on a very similar build before the Commander 2017 Series, and I have a few tips.

this Olivia is stronger as a Timmy Aggro general, so you want to have some brutally efficient early game, rather than cards like Dark Impostor, which are high value but very slow. Also, it would be much better for you to add vampires and vampire synergy, rather than Madness cards, as they are less efficient. Here are my recommendations

CUT: Archfiend of Ifnir, Dark Impostor, Insatiable Gorgers, Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Stromkirk Occultist. Vampire Cutthroat, Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Faith of the Devoted, Gibbering Descent, Fiery Temper, Alms of the Vein, Gisa's Bidding, From Under the Floorboards, Blood Tribute, Cultivator's Caravan, Hedron Archive

ADD: Vampire Nocturnus, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Captivating Vampire, Olivia Voldaren, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Smuggler's Copter, Lightning Bolt, Mogis, God of Slaughter, Living Death, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Coat of Arms, Phyrexian Arena, Outpost Siege, Living Death.

Thank you so much for your advise ScSabella It really helps the mana flow and I think Vampire Cutthroat played very smoothly with my deck. :-)
