Vampire Hexmage Discussion

Panman94 on Death by Vampire

I made a few changes based on suggestions. I'd love to be able to switch Kalastria Highborn with my Vampire Hexmage, but I can't justify spending the money at the moment.

Kalastria Highborn, Vampire Lacerator, Guul Draz Assassin, and Malakir Bloodwitch are all playable vampires under $5. I think Shadow Alley Denizen and Vampire Hexmage might be weak links, although the latter could certainly be sided in against the right opponents.

Birthing Pod and Yisan, the Wanderer Bard have each won me games by tutoring up whatever creature I may need.

I had Yosei, the Morning Star in the deck for a while, but it didn't feel like it had too much effect for how fast my meta has become.

Oblivion Ring is in there for non-conditional removal and has gotten me out of too many close calls to count.

Vampire Hexmage was originally put in the deck to take out planeswalkers, but I haven't had too many issues with them so it was recently cut.

Necromancy is just an expensive animate dead in my eyes since my curve is so low. I typically only need to play one creature from my yard per turn, so paying potentially more mana for a creature on the back foot is the last thing I need.

While I see the value of an early Iona, Shield of Emeria, the only real reliable way I have to put her in play is using Birthing Pod on my Commander, which I'm not particularly fond of doing. I have thought about her in the deck, but I only get 100 cards to work with and I feel like the slot is better used.

A dimir build would be nice indeed (Access to a lot of horrors when you add black, and also discard cards like Inquisition of Kozilek). About Dark Depths, I don't think it is modern legal (unless it changed recently), exactly because of the combo with Vampire Hexmage, the card -Counterspell- mentioned

cleandeceit I believe the card you are looking for is Hex Parasite (I assume tou don't want to add black, in which case I would suggest Vampire Hexmage). Also, although the subtype says otherwise, Hex Parasite seems pretty horror-ish to me.

Vampire Hexmage and Makeshift Mannequin don't work the way you would like it to. If you use Hexmage's ability to target a creature with a mannequin counter on it, that will go on top of the stack above the Hexmage's ability, so it would die.

Also, anything with Persist (plus Undying Evil) or anything that gives -1/-1 counters also work, since the +1/+1 counters and the -1/-1 counters will cancel each other out. Examples include Murderous Redcap, Carnifex Demon, etc.

121.3. If a permanent has both a +1/+1 counter and a -1/-1 counter on it, N +1/+1 and N -1/-1 counters are removed from it as a state-based action, where N is the smaller of the number of +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters on it. See rule 704.

Vampire Hexmage and Thief of Blood also work, although I don't think that the latter is Modern legal, and Hexmage is more used to get a 20/20 turn 3 with Dark Depths.

RedUndead40 on Isn't Aether Hub just a ...

1 month ago

In a proliferate deck at least.

Aether Hub is $3 and the counter cant be removed without your approval.

Tendo Ice Bridge is $8 and can potentially be ruined with something like Vampire Hexmage.

If I plan on proliferating the counters is there any reason Tendo is better? Maybe in a Vorel of the Hull Clade deck but otherwise I dont see a reason this $8 card should be played over the uncommon version
