Vampire Hexmage Discussion

austintayshus on Muldrotha (The commander is marit lage)

While Vesuva can copy your dark depths, it will also enter the battlefield as an exact copy of Dark Depths, meaning it will also have 10 ice counters on it. You'll still need to invest 30 mana to summon marit lage. Thespian Stage is better because it's a two mana investment. TS's copy ability does not cause it to re-enter the battlefield, therefore it does not have the ice counters and can immediately be sac'd for Marit Lage.

I think Vesuva is still worth keeping if you also add in Vampire Hexmage .

DemonDragonJ on Cards that Retroactively Became More ...

1 week ago

In this game, the power level of cards is variable; some cards remain either powerful or weak, but others may change, depending upon other cards that are printed in the future.

Therefore, this thread is for discussing cards that retroactively became more powerful.

The first two cards that I shall mention are Doubling Season and Pithing Needle , which both became much more powerful after planeswalkers became a card type, since they had significant interactions with those cards. Phyrexian Revoker , however, was printed after planeswalkers had become a card type, so it does not qualify for this thread.

The next card that I shall mention is Captain Sisay , who became more powerful after all planeswalkers were changed to be legendary, since she could now search for a planeswalker. The new version of her, Sisay, Weatherlight Captain , does not qualify, since she was printed after planeswalkers had become a creature type.

After planeswalkers became a card type, AEther Snap became more powerful, because it can eliminate them instantly.

When Vampire Hexmage was printed, Dark Depths became more powerful, because the hexmage could immediately removes its counters and summon marit Lage.

What does everyone else say about this? What are some cards that retroactively became more powerful?

Thanks for the suggestions hecubus333. Vampire Hexmage will probably go into the deck on the next update. Dark Depths and Demonic Tutor are a little out of my price range at the moment, but if I can find them for cheap or trade for them, those will also probably go into the deck.

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?

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:

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.

I see this same thing happening in alot of molly D decks. You use alot of instants and sorcery when you can use a permanent that does nearly the same thing. Boardwipes you should be running Bane of Progress Pernicious Deed Plague Boiler Tranquil Grove Phyrexian Scriptures Oblivion Stone

Mana ramp Wayfarer's Bauble Burnished Hart Command Tower Font of Fertility Deranged Assistant

Target removal Vampire Hexmage Seal of Removal Imprisoned in the Moon / Song of the Dryads

Draw/self mill Mesmeric Orb Chronic Flooding Jace, Memory Adept

Protection Darksteel Plate both boots Voidmage Prodigy Siren Stormtamer - this will protect from Bojuka Bog and alot of other gy exiles while also stopping target removal on muldrotha.

Good adds to think about Dismiss Into Dreams Animate Dead

And the only non permanent spell you should run in muldrotha Primal Surge combo with Laboratory Maniac for those games that just drag on.

These adds (especially the mana ramp) will make the deck run smoother and more consistent.

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.

Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.

Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:

You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.

Shared Animosity and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are two expensive price, but powerful cards with Vamps and Edgar.


Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.

Good luck with your deck.

While garagadon doesn't interact with hex parasite like that, it does like having a lot of bodies to sac, and interactions with persist and undying make Geralf's Messenger or Kitchen Finks combos a little smoother, providing an alternative 1 mana outlet to the usual Viscera Seer .

For cards that do interact with parasite, the most notable Dark Depths has been banned a long time ago due to Vampire Hexmage and Thespian's Stage making it too strong. Lost Auramancers , Quicksilver Fountain , Thing in the Ice  Flip and the ahmonket 'drop -1-1 counters on your creatures' cards are all interesting options.

Zubera tribal similarly has some pretty amazing lists built around Return to the Ranks and similar 'mass res' spells.

In the end, I will remove 1 Veteran Explorer in exchange for 1 Vampire Hexmage .

About Green Sun's Zenith , it's been a silly mistake to say that, but with the spoiler season and other decks and tests of other formats that I'm doing, I have many things on my mind.

Thanks Again,
