Hey, saw that you're looking for help.

In my opinion the Vampiric Bloodlust precon doesn't showcase Edgar's best ability which is eminence from the Command Zone. You want to take advantage of this with low mana cost Vampires, mostly one/two/three drops. With eminence you want to swarm the board fast with Vampires because each low mana cost Vamp you cast gives you 1/1 Vamp token. Eminence lets you establish an army of Vamps much faster if you're casting one and two drop Vamps.

I'm suggesting for you to consider completely changing the strategy of your deck? Reduce the avg. CMC which is currently high at 3.7, make it so you can play a lot more Vamps faster. Use Sanctum Seeker , Malakir Bloodwitch and Edgar as the top end Vampires and cut most of the rest. These three benefit a lot, can do a ton of damage with big armies of Vamps. For upgrades to the precon consider starting by add all the good one drop and two drop budget Vamps?

Budget Vamps ($2 or less each) to consider adding:

Can add all these cards for about $11.


In all Commander deck builds lands that can ETB (enter the battlefield) untapped should be priority. Don't be afraid of including more basic lands instead of lands that ETB tapped. Budget lands to consider:

Can add all these lands for about $17.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Can add the rest of these cards for about $12. Total price of suggested upgrades is about $40.


I'm suggesting to make a lot of changes by cutting a large number of high mana cost cards replacing them with low mana cost cards especially Vampires. Except the lands most of the cards I'm suggesting to cut are good cards, but most have high mana costs. Cards to consider cutting:

  • Rakdos Guildgate
  • Orzhov Guildgate
  • Boros Guildgate
  • Akoum Refuge
  • Bloodfell Caves
  • Wind-Scarred Crag
  • Stone Quarry
  • Scoured Barrens
  • Kabira Crossroads
  • Forsaken Sanctuary
  • Cinder Barrens
  • Anowon, the Ruin Sage
  • Blood Baron of Vizkopa
  • Bloodline Necromancer
  • Bloodsworn Steward
  • Butcher of Malakir
  • Crimson Honor Guard
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Heir of Falkenrath
  • Licia, Sanguine Tribune
  • Mathas, Fiend Seeker
  • Olivia Voldaren
  • Patron of the Vein
  • Sangromancer
  • Skeletal Vampire
  • Skymarch Bloodletter
  • Vein Drinker
  • Black Market
  • Kindred Boon
  • Alms of the Vein
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Blood Divination
  • Consuming Vapors
  • Kindred Charge
  • Syphon Mind
  • Fell the Mighty
  • Well of Lost Dreams
  • Worn Powerstone

If you like these suggestions, or have any questions I offer more advice.

Good luck with your deck.


hungry000 on Decks for new players

Alright, I finished a few decks over the last couple hours or so.

Humans: $15 Humans (Elite Inquisitors are for some spicy Vampire/Werewolf/Zombie hate)

Vampires: $15 Madness Vampires (Stromkirk Noble in place of Vampire Lacerator/Indulgent Aristocrat can be cool against the humans deck)

Here's a bonus Kor equipment deck I made for fun a while ago but never posted on tappedout: $15 Kor Equipment

I tried to make a decent zombies deck that fit within the budget but it's such a popular tribe that all the semi-good cards are over $1 each, which made it nigh impossible to make something good. If you're fine with pauper decks though, here's a zombie deck I made in that format: Suicide is occasionally the answer. It's like 10 bucks without the sideboard and can hold up pretty well against other non-competitive modern decks (and is really fun in multiplayer with Shepherd of Rot heheh).

If you don't mind using non-pauper legal cards, I suggest you make these edits:

The last two add $8ish to the price tag but with them the deck becomes more competitive and easier to play. That said, managing your life total is pretty fun if you enjoy a challenge, and chaining together Maggot Carriers with Ghoulcaller's Chant to hit the opponent for the last few points of damage is pretty satisfying. Do what you want with it.

Here are some suggestions: Legion Lieutenant, Kalastria Highborn, Skymarcher Aspirant, Vampire Lacerator

The only one of these that I think you really need is Legion Lieutenant, but Kalastria Highborn can be good in the sideboard as a counter to sweepers (it's probably better than Oathsworn Vampire at least), and the two one-drops are both better than Vampire Cutthroat here imo. Other than that I think you should at least run a 2/2 split of Fatal Push and Path, just because Push is a black card and Path isn't.

SamsWrath on Papa Markov (Budget)

The most brutal way to build a Markov deck is to abuse his Eminence ability by playing as many low-cmc Vampires as possible. If you couple that with mana rocks and some Ramp you can drop a handful of 1cmc Vampires each turn and get free triggers for even more Vampires from Markov! This will also allow you to cut your lands down to around 30.

Here are some low-cmc Vampires to consider:

Ramp:

Mana Rocks:

You can also try throwing in these HUGE buff effects for your Vampires:

Hi! I think you'd better change this deck into Modern or Casual `cause many cards are not standar legal: Olivia Voldaren, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Vampire Lacerator etc. It's a fun deck anyway. It's a Vampire tribal so Stromkirk Captain would be a very nice addition. Good luck!

you definitely need the 4th Bloodghast, you should cut the Vampire Lacerator as it is too low impact and Dusk Legion Zealot does not seem particularly good unless you are going wide. Suggest Viscera Seer for blanking removal+fixing your draw+combo with Bloodghast+combo with Kalastria Highborn. And if you are playing 4 Fatal Push, you'd want some number of fetches. You can also fit Mutavault in as an honorary vampire. Since you have access to white, you'd want powerhouse sideboard cards such as Stony Silence.

YamishiTheWickedOne I really like the Zealots, gets you instant card draw and a body; however I do think you're right with Asylum Visitor, I should give her another shot.

I think I want to lean more heavily on the midrange/control aspect, but it's been difficult to find the balance between the two. I feel full aggro might suit vampires better, with playsets of Bloodghast, Vampire Lacerator, Stromkirk Noble, and powerful lords; however, I don't find that as fun to play as building a board state, controling theirs, and then gambling on topdecking something black with Nocturnus. That way, though, can fall apart quickly and is broken down by any removal. But as I said, finding the middle point there has been tricky - for me, at least.

Thanks for the tip Silverdrake! I have been taking your comment to heart. When I made this deck I was using cards lying around. I have updated the list and made it a bit more consistent. I just dont know how much work Vampire Lacerator and Ruthless Cullblade is going to put in. Any thoughts on how to get ahead with Aggro early and with Vampires?
