Vampire Nighthawk Discussion

casmiel on Extorting Mad Vamps

Most B/R Madness Vampires run 4 Fiery Temper and 3-4 Lightning Axes. Fiery Temper is basically a Lightning Bolt in dedicated Madness decks. Call the Bloodline is decent discard, Heir of Falkenrath  Flip is also really strong, Olivia, Mobilized for War is pretty good as well.

The problem with the new Vampires and the old ones is, that their strategies are completly different. New Vamps are extremely aggressive and fast-paced, the old ones and Extort make for drawn-out games. Most of them don't really mix all to well. Except for stuff like Stromkirk Captain, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Vampire Nighthawk or Gatekeeper of Malakir. Those are just all around great cards in my opinion. There are also Urge to Feed and Feast of Blood if you want to go deeper into a Tribal direction with this.

YourZombieFriend: Blade of the Bloodchief is really nice, been thinking about adding it in, but havent gotten to it. And yeah 4 Vampire Nighthawks is awesome, been playtesting with the playset. Thanks for all the suggestions, but Dark Ritual ain't modern legal and I got a playset of Doom Blades already in SB and I've had good results with the utility I got :)

AlucardZain: Dismember is really sweet, but I don't know if I need them atleast for now, we'll see what kind of decks I face in the future. Thanks for suggestion though!

I was thinking about it too, because gary is a key card in the deck indeed. I'll test it around a bit and see if it is useful to have a 5 cmc card 4x. About Geralf's Messenger, I know it is a great devotion card, but I have Vampire Nighthawk in the 3 cmc slot because he has evasion and lifelink (I need to recover lives so I don't lose to much with Phyrexian Arena and stuff). Neither do I own that card at the moment, so if I can get my hands on it, i'll see if he makes the deck. Thank you

Blade of the Bloodchief is fun, especially with a Child of Night or Vampire Nighthawk. Vampire Hexmage is one of my favorite vampires. (has great utility AND she has first strike) What you have looks great so far but you probably want to fiddle around and see which creatures work best for you and then swap some out for more utility spells like Sign in Blood, Ambition's Cost, Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, or Dark Ritual. Seriously try to add as many nighthawks as you can though, they are the best.

First thought is that you're probably going to need at least 2-3 more lands for your chances of using Elbrus, the Binding Blade  Flip. Second thought is Vampire Nighthawk--a solid card in its own right, and absolutely lethal with Thornbite Staff. How does free equip with ": Destroy target creature." sound?

While Temporal Extortion and Dash Hopes cede a lot of control over the next turn to your opponent, I see no problem with them in casual. I wouldn't use 4 and 3, of each, though; I would cut 2-3 each of those and add some basic removal, like Doom Blade or Grasp of Darkness. This will help get Avatar of Woe online faster as well.

Hope this helps!

@Bababad: I get where you are going, but I don't want to take out any Exalted creatures and I prefer Vampire Nighthawk as an extra blocker/exalted target. Thanks though.

Sadly, Captivating Vampire, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Marsh Flats, Orzhov Basilica, Dark Ritual, Dash Hopes, and both artifacts are all banned for Standard. (Since you posted this in the Standard forum.)

As far as a Modern deck is concerned, it looks pretty good with a few cards that I don't think work: Dark Ritual, Soul Warden and Soul's Attendant could all be taken out. I would look for cards that give you tokens, and raise your mana curve a little. All those are 1 drops so that will be easy.

I'd introduce lifelink or things to gain life more than once, maybe Rhox Faithmender, Vampire Nighthawk or Ajani's Mantra

Hope that helps!

There is also you can enter a card and it will show analytics on that card, like what decks it appears in most. Any of the commanders that show up are decent ideas, so just find a commander you like. I ran Vampire Nighthawk and it looks like it shows up most often in tribal vampires and Orzhov value decks.

Baron Sengir is the highest percentage at 100% but I don't like him as a commander. All of the commanders I mentioned earlier are on there, and I still think that any of them would be a good choice for a deck and that Vampire Nighthawk would fit well into them. Of the Orzhov value commanders I like Karlov of the Ghost Council the best.

Once you decide on a direction to take the deck let us know and we'll be happy to help.
