Vampire Cutthroat Discussion

I would definitely recommend a few one drops: Soulmender is just a good drop in the deck, giving you a free lifegain trigger every time.Vampire Cutthroat is another great, especially as a T1 drop, because its presumable he can swing in for some sweet, sweet lifelink damage after you drop Karlov on T2.God-Pharaoh's Faithful could also be useful with a high enough density of black spells.Nyx-Fleece Ram is also an all-star in this deckAuthority of the Consuls proves to be another effective drop, providing similar effects to both Blind Obedience and Soul Warden

Hey it's me from untap, Ok so mono-black vamps is fun and can get crazy. Cards to consider - Pulse Tracker, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Lacerator, Guul Draz Vampire, Vampire Cutthroat, Bloodghast, Malakir Bloodwitch and there are tons of other dudes to look into. Also, Sign in Blood is black card draw. As is Night's Whisper.

@Dave-writer90 If you had some way of tutor Sorin Markov, I would suggest a cute interaction with Sorin's Vengeance, it hits the field 1 mana after Sorin itself.

After a little analysis, one question comes to mind, isn't Stromkirk Noble better than one of your one drops like Vampire Cutthroat? Because if you can drop it at first turn, it's a pain, since your opponent have to deal with it. That's my opinion :)

Best Regards

um Concerted Effort feels mandatory here,Cairn Wanderer feels especially powerful, Bone Picker isnt bad, and Vampire Cutthroat is worth a look especially with all your creatures having low power to compensate for keywords at low cmcs.

Quilled Sliver,Crossbow Infantry ,Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile and Steadfast Armasaur seem like decent (but more fragile) replacements for longbow, but Heart-Piercer Bow might be better.

Go down to 60 cards and 4 copies of Legion's Landing  Flip. 60 cards immensely improves the consistency of your deck. There is never a reason NOT to run the minimum amount of cards. I can tell that you're pretty new to the game or just play casually. Here's a tip, lifegain does nothing. If you have 1000 life and your opponent is at 1, he can still be very much in control of the game. The only time lifegain REALLY matters is when you're racing for the win against another aggressive deck. With that in mind, look for way to deal damage rather than gain life. I usually use Bogles as a measuring stick to determine whether a card is viable in Modern. Here's a list:

Bogles...So Aura Tribal?

Modern DarkStarStorm


Take out Altar of the Brood. It does nothing in your deck.

Add four copies of Vampire Cutthroat

Gatekeeper of Malakir is good interaction.

Vampire Nighthawk if you just want an incredible body.

Vampire Nocturnus is the best vampire lord in the game.

Pieguy396 on Mad Dash: Vampires

Hey there! Nice deck you have here! Addressing your questions in order:

First, I would recommend cutting the following cards:

You may notice a theme with the above cards: They're mostly low-CMC Vampires with a small effect. While I rarely play super-aggro EDH decks, the fact that you're facing usually 3 opponents with 40 life each means that simply having a lot of creatures doesn't do a lot. Edgar Markov makes a lot of tokens on his own, which can all grow absurdly large, so I really don't think you should be focused on spending your cards on weenies when you can be doing better things.

As for your other concerns:

  • I really don't think Well of Lost Dreams has a place here. It's best in heavy-lifegain decks that lack other strong ways (and need strong ways) to draw cards, neither of which is a good descriptor for this deck.
  • Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Door of Destinies, on the other hand, absolutely belong in here. Door is one of the strongest cards tribal-aggro decks have in the format, and Purphoros is excellent in any deck looking to swarm the board.

Some other suggestions:- Bojuka Bog- Blade of the Bloodchief- Bloodcrazed Paladin- Vanquisher's Banner- Anointed Procession- Vampire Nocturnus (maybe)- Path to Exile

In any case, hope this helps! Good luck!

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?

reelronin on Vampire Lifelink

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.
