Vampire Cutthroat Discussion
2 days ago
Just gonna throw out some interesting vampire potentials for the sake of discussion.
Vampire Cutthroat 1 mana, pseudo-evasion, lifelink
Adanto Vanguard 2 mana, attacks as a 3/1 with potential indestructible
Martyr of Dusk 2 mana, 2/1, leaves a vampire if it dies
Markov Blademaster 3 mana 1/1, double striking self pumper. (2 red cost is a downside)
Of the pack, I feel like adanto has the highest output for cost ratio and I'm actually a little surprised he's not in the list as he's a very aggressive 2 drop. Markov blademaster has the potential to get out of hand quick and really deliver some serious punches, but he can also flounder as well due to his baseline stats. Cutthroat is intriguing and a potential replacer for something like pulse tracker but probably not any other 1 drop. Martyr is kinda just a standard decent creature but it doesn't really help you in the face of a wipe when you lose everything but a 1/1 vampire.

ZorrosRage I actually saw that Rogue deck earlier, I was going to comment but I was on break at work and I completely forgot haha.
I specifically designed this deck to be built around unblockable creatures with equipment, so I think I would want to keep Deathcult Rogue in the deck. Having equipment on him is just too good in the games I've played with this deck.
I originally had Vampire Cutthroat in the deck but I felt like having the Slither Blades were enough for the one drop. I already have too much stuff to play turn 2 to cast him turn 2, and turn 3 I would rather have the extra power to push the damage through. But I've kept him in the back of my mind and will continue to do so.
I honestly am not a big fan of Auntie's Snitch, and I've toyed with Oona's Prowler, but I like having the guaranteed damage that other cards provide. They're both exellent cards, but I just choose to have the deck built this way.
All legitimate recommendations, but I need to do a few more games with my playgroup with this iteration before I consider swapping from my unblockable build. I'll keep them all in mind though :)

How do you like Vampire Cutthroat? just felt like he was super weak when I tested him. Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive wasn't available then butwith me using 3 Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive he might be worth it. Let me know how your testing goes. I preferred Slither Blade over him in the initial testing with 1/2 power unblockable. Just felt more useful more often than the occasional life link

akkd Thanks man! A lot of good ideas actually came from here so I have to thank those that helped me build this deck.
Anyhow, the creatures line-up would surely benefit from an update. The thing is that this deck is still only a prototype and I'm not playing these days (months, actually...). I try to keep as "generic" as I can, so Inkfathom Infiltrator is better than Oona's Prowler because the former can never be blocked. The latter would make a great sideboard card, though (that's another thing I haven't tweaked for a long while, btw). Same for Cold-Eyed Selkie. Also, Aqueous Form would come in handy whenever I might need more sneakiness. This is something I will surely review in the future.
Maybe they are too many, but hexproof is damn great and I hate to see a creature with like 7 mana of equipment wiped away by a spell. 3 might be ok all the same, however.
People here tells me to withdrawn my trusty Royal Assassin but I like it so it gets to stay. (Also, the nice killing spells cost too much.)
I don't know about Tetsuko Umezawa. I believe once rogue effects trigger basically any creature of mine is out of reach of her effect.
I like the Vampire Cutthroat. I'm not going to overhaul the deck soon but I'll surely keep your suggestion in mind when I'll do. Thanks again :-)

Awsome deck man+1 definetly! I've made a couple of changes of my own regarding the creatures (will have a look later on the lands and the Dispell ).
I believe we are on to something . Let me know what you think:
-I've replaced 4x Inkfathom Infiltrator for 4x Oona's Prowler ( personally, I believe the trade off between being "unblockable" for a bigger dmg (3/1) + possiblity of hand disrupt + its mana cost is 1 colorless and 1 black(so we are able to decrease its cost through Frogtosser Banneret , which we didn't manage to do w/ Inkfathom Infiltrator due to their 2 CMC being both blac/blue) + keeping the rogue tribal aspect, preserving that way the possibility of getting pumped like every other creature we have better in an overall way.
-I've replaced 2x Triton Shorestalker for 2x Vampire Cutthroat. The tradeoff between being only unblockable, compared with her skulk hability + lifelink + preserving its rogue aspect, which enables her to get pumped as well better.
-I've decreased 1 unity of Invisible Stalker, I thought 4 was too much.
-I've withdrawn the 4x copies of Royal Assassin
-I've added 1x Aqueous Form + 3x Cold-Eyed Selkie for draw engine, and again, preserving its caracteristics of being a rogue (able of getting pumped) and able of having its CMC decreased by 1 due to its colorless mana.
- And, I've added 2x Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive. It basically looks like this card was created for rogue/farie/tribal haha
Again, tks for the inspiration
