Vampire Lacerator Discussion
1 week ago
Fatal Push is a thing. I used to run black tribal vamps and i would spit out Vampire Nocturnus on T3 with Eldritch Evolution. Vampire Nocturnus is a must i would say for any vamp deck. The buff is just too great. But, with your splash of red, he is eh. So i understand not putting him in. Pulse Tracker, Guul Draz Vampire, and Vampire Lacerator are awesome one drops to consider, plus they are super affordable. An AWESOME 2 drop is Kalastria Highborn. Deal damage and gain life, why not? Captivating Vampire is not as great as it is hyped up to be. He is just too slow. Perhaps look at Bloodchief Ascension too? You've got a really nifty idea here and i think you'll be happy with it. I'm just glad to see other people playing vampires again! I hope my input is helpful.

First off this deck isn't standard. Modern maybe, but it looks like to me you just play casual with friends.
That url will take you to the official wizards of the coast how to build a deck guide. Lots of tasty knowledge there. Some of the basics though: I usually start at 24 land and decide if I need more or less. This decision is based on the average converted mana cost of the cards in your deck. I can see your deck has lots of 2 mana cards, but also some 5, 6, and even 7 mana cards. At only 20 lands you can't really expect to cast these higher cost cards. I would play at least 22 lands. A consistent deck is a better deck. You have lots of cards at one copy. You should play more copies of your better cards and cut some of these lesser cards.
Some changes to this deck I would make. Take out the artifact, and some of the high mana cost cards and add 2 more lands. And some lower mana cost vampires. Like Gatekeeper of Malakir, Pulse Tracker, Vampire Lacerator, Indulgent Aristocrat.

taiga277677, I've been playing around with the idea. I had Indulgent Aristocrat and Stromkirk Noble for a while, but they just didn't seem to mesh well with the deck. I've also considered Insolent Neonate, Vampire Lacerator, or even Guul Draz Vampire or Guul Draz Assassin but so far, they just haven't play tested all that well. Also considered Falkenrath Gorger, but the ability doesn't work well with this deck since it's not really built to discard much. I think I'll see what Ixalan has for vamps.

Hey IRNMN! Thank you for your response. Yes, I've tested the Vampire Lacerator. He is a good one-drop but the lifeloss is hard to compensate when you fetch a couple of times.
The Vampire Cutthroat is evasive, sneaks in a couple of damage points which generates a little lifegain.
I'm looming forward to Ixalan, which might provide one or two good BW Vampires. I'm desperatly looking for a good 2nd Lord to come in the new Set because the Captivating Vampire is not good at all

Love it, upvoted! Have you tested running Vampire Lacerator in place of Vampire Cutthroat? Having a slightly bigger 1 drop gives you better tempo and clock, and Lacerator is significantly better with the first strike given by Stromkirk Captain. Just a thought

There's the beginning of an idea for a good deck here, but you need focus, and your mana curve is way too high. You also have an illegal card in your side. I'd add maybe 2 nighthawks, Captivating Vampire and maybe Vampire Lacerator. Early game power = good. I'd cut everything over 3 mana here and also ditch Sign in Blood as you do have better draw power. Also this is begging to run 4 each of Fatal Push and Tragic Slip mainboard. Killing Wave could actually work here, and I suggest sideboarding Demon of Death's Gate. My initial two cents. Good luck, young neophyte.

If you have the budget for it, playing some fetches (yes, even in a mono-black deck) will greatly help trigger Bloodghast as well as make Vampire Nocturnus's ability come on more reliably. It also triggers Fatal Push's Revolt. You probably also need a slightly higher land count if that is the case.
Vampire Lacerator is unfortunately too weak for Modern and should be cut. He belongs to an aggro shell (maybe Rakdos Madness Vampires?) but I'm not sure your deck is considered aggro. Yahenni, Undying Partisan is probably also too weak and doesn't seem to see much play. Instead of having Bloodline Keeper Flip in the side, I'd rather go with Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet as it can survive better and has more utility.
(I have played and refined a Vampire tribal list in Modern for quite some time. This is just my personal opinion. I won't post my decklist here but will be glad to share it with you if you want.)

I'd push for more vamps in the deck tbh. You're missing out on some old goodies. Like maybe go 2/2 of Captain and Captivating Vampire? Most tribal decks run 4-8 lords. And if you can get a hold of Cavern of Souls all the better. Another idea can to play Vampire Nocturnus as a 1-2 of. He is your mono black overrun. And aside from moons and land, it seems you'll have a black card always. I'd also try to run some more 1-drops mens(Vampire Lacerator), unless you're trying to be controlling. I used to play vamps for the longest time and I like your take on the deck.
