- Are cards in exile (suspend), considered permanents?
- Can you activate a creatures ability with no actual target?
- Can instant-speed sacrifice effects be used on creatures that enter the battlefield with 0 toughness?
- Does paying a card's cost to activate an ability resolve before the stack is triggered?
- What does Cathar's Crusade trigger on first if I have Edgar Markov as my commander?

Vampire Hexmage Discussion

I would say if cuts were made and I was choosing:
I would go with Bloodcrazed Paladin as every time I had him in hand I found myself waiting for the 'right moment' which is not what I want in a more aggressive deck.
Maybe Rakish Heir or Vampire Hexmage could be expendable as well as Stensia Masquerade or Phyrexian Reclamation...not that they would not be useful in some situations. I just try to distill down iterations of my decks to cards that are as useful as they can be every time I draw them. If possible. Sometimes that is possible and sometimes it isn't. Sometimes I play with a card for a year and I really want it to be part of my deck because it fits my theme or gimmick even though I know I could probably add a better synergizing card in that adds utility.
I get weirdly sentimental about some cards being in a deck.
Hope that helps! If it helps you can check out my vamp deck. Mine is less creature heavy and focuses with a bit more equipment and such things to help Edgar or a big body wreck the field. But vamps are still vamps!

@SynergyBuild - That is some pretty sweet tech. I'm gonna have to look into that little guy. Thanks!
@Aiding - Sorry this took awhile, really appreciate the recommendations...let me break them down.
Spore Frog going in as soon as I get one.
Night's Whisper is good, but I dump my hand so fast, and my meta is actually pretty slow, so the three cards ultimately just outweighs it for me personally.
Harmonize on the other hand is strictly better, so it will replace Cravings as soon as I acquire one. :p
Life // Death - Another meta call, board wipes are often at instant speed in my meta due to other effects and getting my entire mana base scrubbed would be devastating.
Both Zeni...Zeniths?...are great, I just don't own them and while I do ramp, it seems little underwhelming unless I buff my ramp package.
Triumph of the Hordes - I absolutely adore giving people poison counters! This has been on the acquire list for awhile, I just haven't gotten there yet. :p
Birthing Pod should be here...just Another case of I yet to own it. Haha.
Dark Prophecy is another card on the acquire list...along with Necropotence I don't really have a budget constraint...I'mjust not gonna pick up something like Gaea's Cradle. Anything under like $50 is probably cool tho.
I actually have Kokusho, the Evening Star in another deck...but he fits much better here. I'll make that swap for sure. What would you take out?

So personally, I love Meren and all that she does. Because of that, I have a good amount of cards that I really enjoy that you may also like..
Vampire Hexmage is a free sacrifice that can kill walkers and make some permanents bad - but its totally a meta call.
Spore Frog AKA fog frog should be in every Meren deck because of how BEAUTIFUL he is in negating combat.
Night's Whisper I think is better than ambition's cost. It's half the mana for one less card. Usually, you want 4+ mana things to be doing big stuff and taking the turn off to draw 3 is medium sometimes. If you are looking for that kind of effect, Harmonize does the same thing in a different color.
Carrion Feeder can be seer #2
Triumph of the Hordes is a personal favorite of mine, but if you dislike infecting people, I understand.
Birthing Pod I think should be in all the Merens, but that also depends on budget and how your people react to that sort of thing.
Pattern of Rebirth can be a tutor for combo-y things if you ever go that way or you can just get a big dumb thing by trading in a little guy.
Kokusho, the Evening Star is my favorite card in MtG and he has a home in all my Meren builds. CoCo Puffs the dragon is a house!
Sorry for the wall of words.. I just enjoy naming cards I enjoy in decks I also enjoy! Make your choices around what you want your deck to remain and make your friends fear the swamp lady!

What do you think of Runic Armasaur as a draw engine for the deck? Also I was thinking to include a Living Wish package since may playgroup is fine with it, including some finishers in case I draw it lategame without gas, some hatecards for certain decks, some value cards some cycling cards in case I have humility out. For lategame finishers I was thinking of Tidespout Tyrant, as it easily produces infinite mana with some positive rocks, Muldrotha, the Gravetide, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter or Sun Titan as big value cards. For specific hate cards Faerie Macabre,Notion Thief or Spirit of the Labyrinth, Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Dosan the Falling Leaf or Grand Abolisher, Hex Parasite or Vampire Hexmage against teferi, animar or marvyn and Phyrexian Revoker Other options include Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Snapcaster Mage ,Reclamation Sage, Spellseeker, Gilded Drake, Seedborn Muse, ... the list goes on. The thing is that living wish gives you the option to have all those creatures available with the wish, but you don't need to stuff your deck with cards that hurt of adnaus and are horrible with humility. In case of humility beeing tutor target no1. in all your games you could consider adding Street Wraith to avoid the wish beeing dead So please tell me what you think of the with and the dinosaur!

I just don't understand why I didn't see more of it when Temur Energy was wrecking the landscape.
Maybe it was being used and I missed it, but in my area nobody played it. Like... You literally shut down the entire Wincon and spine of the deck all in one fell swoop.
But as far as your question goes: 5C barely deals with counters. There's like two creatures in the deck that grow. Easier to run spot removal than a condition that may or may not be needed.
I don't have much experience against affinity so I can't help you there, unfortunately.
And as for a spot in your 15, even if you use some for the possibility of them running Planeswalkers, there's literally better cards. Dreadbore, for example, and Vampire Hexmage both work perfectly fine.

Neat deck, never thought of playing Hunted Horror with Thing in the Ice. Have you tried Aether Vial? All your creatures are 2 mana so it seems really good here. Other than that, you should definitely play cantrips (~8) as they're the easiest way to get the counters off Thing after Vampire Hexmage, plus they'll help you find Hunted Horror or Thing if you have one on the battlefield but not the other.

With Hero's Downfall handling the Creature/ Planeswalker avenue, I'd strongly consider Terminate in the place of Dreadbore. I myself prefer instant speed myself and as a 7-8 year player of vamps that's just my experience.
I would change Falkenrath Gorger but as you seem keen on keeping it, carry on. I would strongly consider putting in 1 or 2 Drana, Liberator of Malakir. Her first strike deals combat damage first, boosting other Vampire's damage when they deal normal damage. It gets pretty ridiculous.
