Vampire Cutthroat Discussion
1 week ago
Thank you Specterforge for all of those suggestions! Vampire Lacerator definitely isn't too hard for me to take out of the deck, and I can't believe I forgot Legion's Landing Flip!! I am putting it at 2 just to see how that goes with the Legendary part of it but I think that or 3 is definitely where I want it. Also I don't really care about having no 1 drop vampires in the deck, so taking out Vampire Cutthroat seems fine, especially with that Urge to Feed removal being so-so sweet. 12 sources of removal, one having a lord-like effect, definitely seems fine for a midrange deck, at least to me. Especially when one of the lords encourages said removal! Definitely excited to try out this updated list in the next few weeks.

So first off. I love your deck! I make budget and kitchen table decks for people all the time and actually just recently started getting into competitive building (Memory Dissolution) and I love helping people with their deck. Now to my suggestions. You should cut out Vampire Lacerator . He really only hurts you unless you are already winning. I would put in 2-4 Legion's Landing Flip in place. It enters and creates a 1/1 with lifelink that can flip and make more vampires with lifelink fueling your Cordial Vampire and Captivating Vampire engines as well as allow you to use any extra mana you have at the end of your opponents turn or just to dump mana into. This will also help in Grindy games by giving you a 1/1 with lifelink every turn (once flipped of course lol). Second is I would cut out Vampire Cutthroat . While his skulk ability is good, it becomes useless once you get any lords out. The lifelink is made up for with Legion's Landing Flip I previously mentioned. In its place I would put in Urge to Feed . It's a possible removal and allows you to buff any and all vampires you currently control. Do it at the end of your opponents turn to possibly kill a creature and then buff every vampire you have with no drawback since they will untap. BONUS!! Create a 1/1 vampire with Legion's Landing Flip, cast Urge to Feed targeting that vampire and trigger Cordial Vampire AND tap all your vampires for a total of 2 +1/+1 counters on all your vampires (on top of your lords!). Finally I would find where you could fit in Feast of Blood . Yes there's that condition where you need 2 vampires to cast it, but that's easy for this deck. This is a cheap catch all removal with the bonus of gaining 4 life. These suggestions would increase efficiency of the deck, make it so that you could interact with your opponent better and go to the long game if needed, and best of all: IT STAYS BUDGET! XD. Thanks for visiting my Ted talk lmao. (Also feel free to completely ignore my suggestions if you want lmao, and feel free to reach out to me if you want more suggestions or help with other/future decks!(And that goes to everyone who has made it this far lol))

This is now the 3rd revision. In this revision I removed Olivia's Dragoon , Succumb to Temptation , Murderous Compulsion , Abundant Maw , Fiery Temper , Pale Rider of Trostad , Stromkirk Condemned , Vampire Cutthroat , Bloodrage Brawler , Call the Bloodline , Sanguinary Mage , Furyblade Vampire .
Instead more powerful vampires were added as well as cards that were cheaper with a draw mechanic.

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of brew cards for mono black in modern.
Powerful enablers for them are cards like Blade of the Bloodchief Lashwrithe or Vampire Nocturnus / Drana, Liberator of Malakir which let you 'outsize' the majority of modern midrange. Yes, mono black can reliably eat goyfs.
Finally, you want disruption. Jam a ton of Duress variants, its what mono black does best, and stripping their removal options and card draw makes that 10/10 lifelink token you made by discarding a land and equipping lashwrithe very effective. Past that, plan your sideboard- ratchet bomb is basically mandatory as your only enchantment removal, but the rest is more standard modern fare.

Hey, keeping your overall deck heavy black is good, the right direction, because of the low budget white and red are better as splashes mostly just for Edgar. You have about $50 to spend before you reach $100. All my card suggestions will cost half that. For the manabase consider a few more budget dual lands?
- Unclaimed Territory
- Exotic Orchard
- Caves of Koilos
- Battlefield Forge
- Tainted Field
- Foreboding Ruins
- Smoldering Marsh
- Tainted Peak
Can cut basic Mountains and Plains for these dual lands.
Most of my Vampire suggestions are one and two drop Vamps because I think you need more of them since they give you board presence faster because of eminence. The 10 budget Vampires to consider including:
- Shadow Alley Denizen
- Vampire Cutthroat
- Viscera Seer
- Pulse Tracker
- Yahenni, Undying Partisan
- Kalastria Highborn
- Gifted Aetherborn
- Vampire Hexmage
- Vampire Lacerator
- Bloodthrone Vampire
Adding all these additional cards will cost about $24. This leaves another $20+ for a few higher end cards with Edgar such as Bloodline Keeper Flip, Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Shared Animosity . Good luck with your deck.

If i were you, i would get rid of the banneret. its got some value dont get me wrong but everything already costs like 2 or 3. if you swap it for Slither Blade or Vampire Cutthroat then you wouldnt really need it.
personally i would run Countersquall of like a 2 main and 2 in side but thats mainly cause my meta has like 80% either esper or jeskai control bullshit.
also personally i would do Dismember over go for the throat but hey theres like 4 different options just kinda depends what you like
Sygg, River Cutthroat is a pretty good card to that allows more card draw easily. Rogues have some of the best card draw that you can get aside from merfolk and is a really underrated tribe but really good.
Grimoire Thief is also a really good card if you looking for a more midrange option instead of aggro but even if it is aggro would atleast run some in the side just incase.

Added some things to the maybeboard, have been testing them out for tweaks to the early game.
While Aether Vial is fantastic to have for all the benefits it gives but I decided to remove them for 4x Fatal Push or 4x Blade of the Bloodchief . I also changed the Vampire Cutthroat out for 4x Indulgent Aristocrat for a little extra boost for the group in early game scenarios while using the Bloodghast as fodder. These changes have worked rather well due to the synergy between Indulgent Aristocrat , Fatal Push and Bloodghast .
The deck leans more to the aggressive side at this point and relies heavily on the Life generated from Lifelink. While having an overabundance of life is great, I still feel that the deck requires something more defensive.

I would change Murder for Never / Return , they do the same, but the later can affect Pw and gets recursion. Diabolic Tutor would also go in place of Mastermind's Acquisition , and would replace some copies of Alms of the Vein with Ill-Gotten Inheritance .
Side boarding some “Hand Destruction” and “Removal” spells would be a good idea as well.
