Hexcimal on Mono Black Vampire Deck

1 week ago

It's always nice to see a mono black Vampire list. I used to run one myself before I repurposed the deck into others, and seeing them brings nostalgia. Out of curiosity, have you considered running B/R for the deck to be better competitively, or are you certain that you want this to be a strictly mono black build? Regardless, just a couple thoughts.

Consider running more 1 CMC cards to give yourself turn 1 plays. Whether it be more removal, more buffing/utility spells, or more creatures, Vampires as a tribe prefer aggressive builds that start quickly.

Some stragglers to consider replacing include Child of Night and Vampire's Bite.

Also, wanted to point out that I love the synergy with Quag Vampires and Contaminated Ground.

I don't know if you're looking for cards that your local game store doesn't have, but if you just want general recommendations, I have a few.

Some highly recommended burn spells: Incinerate, Searing Blood, Magma Jet, Magma Spray, Pillar of Flame

Some good creatures: Ash Zealot, Stromkirk Noble, Firedrinker Satyr, Zurgo Bellstriker, Vampire Lacerator

Some other strong options:Duress, Doom Blade, Tragic Slip, Disfigure

This is if you want to make an extremely aggressive deck. All of these recommended cards are somewhere in a budget range, with nothing over 50 cents (on TCG player).

You also should cut 4 cards no matter what, because you currently have 64. You should probably get rid of Seismic Stomp, Madcap Skills, Mugging, and Act of Treason. The first 3 are sub-par, the last one is a more niche card.

If you're going to make that hyper-aggressive deck, I think 19-20 lands is preferable. And the 3 and 4 drops aren't going to cut it.

If you want to keep Exava and add planeswalkers, the deck is going to be a lot slower. If you do go that direction you should add some of the control elements like doom blade and duress. You should also probably take some of the 3-drops from the deck you linked to: Shambling Remains, Hellhole Flailer, Ashenmoor Gouger.

Just my 2 cents.

Anguished Unmaking and Path to Exile are your best options for removal, also consider running a single Immortal Servitude for those long games.

I would cut the two Chief of the Scale to max out on Chief of the Edge and Blood-Chin Rager.

This seems like the perfect deck for Vampire Lacerator, with some upgrades to you manabase Gatekeeper of Malakir becomes a nice option, Blood-Chin Fanatic can Fling your warriors at your opponents face for added reach while gaining you some health.

Dark Ritual isn't modern legal, the effect was moved to red with modern, a colour which also has a fair few good vampires...

Staying mono black for the moment, I'd recommend another 1 drop, either Indulgent Aristocrat or Vampire Lacerator, possibly both. I'd also swap Vampire Lacerator with Malakir Bloodwitch as it is essentially a Gray Merchant of Asphodel for vampires which also passes the bolt test and has protection from white...

Your playing mono black so 4x Gifted Aetherborn is always a better choice then 2x Child of Night or 2x Markov Patrician since it is Nighthawk without flying.

You will rarely do anything on turn 1, which isn't a good thing. I'd suggest 4x Indulgent Aristocrat and 4x Vampire Lacerator. To make room remove all the Enchantments, Sip of Hemlock, 1x Markov Patrician, Liturgy of Blood and 1x Swamp also a 1 drop is Blade of the Bloodchief.

Your removal suite could also be improved by replacing Murder with Victim of Night and Reave Soul, Ultimate Price with Urge to Feed it will help make the deck a bit more efficient.

Finally I'd suggest Malakir Bloodwitch as a finisher, in preference to Kalastria Nightwatch and Sengir Vampire, the Bloodwitch is just a better card. Hope this is of some help.

OK, so mono black vamps. You'll live or die on sideboard, I'd reccomend a set of Pithing Needles, Ratchet Bomb and as much hand disruption as you can afford. highborn I've always found to underperform outside of Blade of the Bloodchief/Bloodchief Ascension because of the mana investment. Keeping mana up like that really doesn't go well with the spam creatures plan. If you're running Vampire Lacerator go all in with the Indulgent Aristocrat and Bloodthrone Vampires with something like Whip of Erebos or swap it out for something better at stalling- Gifted Aetherborn is a better Vampire Nighthawk in any meta that doesn't care about the flying. Run both if stalling to midgame and not running whip. Vampire Hexmage while great, should be sideboard for times when first strike matters or plainswalkers. Consider more Gatekeeper of Malakir- they trade excellently, and win games. Lillana of the viel is fantastic if you plan a sideboard to functionally turn this into 8-rack, or run more disposable creatures, but might be a wasted investment unless you have them already from another deck- Ensnaring Bridge and Call the Bloodline normally performs better in this tribal if games stall like that. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of modern mono black cards- if you think something is missing please let me know, and remember to playtest extensively before diving into bigger budget cards.

Michae1JCaboose Stromkirk Captain Captivating Vampire Bloodghast Kalastria Highborn Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Cavern of Souls Feast of Blood SB Vampire Lacerator Guul Draz Vampire Viscera Seer Shared Animosity Olivia Voldaren should replace liliana, or more kill spells like Terminate or Fatal Push. Vampire Tribal is generally very aggressive and you dont' want you curve to be too high. Dark ritual is not modern legal. replace them, and tragic slip with Lightning Bolt. it'll give you that extra damage push. there are several ways to build BR vamps, but these are usually core cards to work with.
