Vampire Nighthawk Discussion

Bababad on Competitive Mono-Black Vampires

Does Captivating Vampire do consistent work for you? Been awhile since I took my mono black vampies to game night, but I know I couldn't get 5 bodies on the field super consistently back then.

Rounding out Gatekeeper of Malakir, Vampire Nighthawk, or throwing in a Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or two seems tempting over them.

I've been playing with the deck online a lot, and have updated it and narrowed the maybeboard.

I really like Baral, Chief of Compliance since it makes instant and sorcery cost 1 less, which can give a huge tempo gain if left unchecked by the opponent. In addition, it also let us draw cards every time we counter an spell. Having a cc of 2 also helps.

Grim Flayer: This card looks like a mini-Tarmogoyf to me, it's a 2/2 that can potentially become a 4/4, and also has trample and let us fix our draws. As I don't own him yet, I haven't had the opportunity to test him, but he may replace Vampire Nighthawk.

The other cards that I really want to squeeze in the deck are Damnation and Mystic Confluence:

  • While testing the deck, I've noticed I don't usually have more than 2 creatures in the battlefield at the same time, so I don't think Damnation will interfere with our beatdown win con strategy.

  • Mystic Confluence sounds really really good, having the ability of being a hard counter, or removing creatures or drawing as cards, at instant speed.[/list]

I would suggest going down 3 Vampire Nighthawks and 1 Bloodsoaked Champion and then up 4 Zulaport Cutthroat

Why Quest for the Gravelord? and only 1 Nighthawk? There are a lot of cool vampires out there. I run a nontraditional Vampire deck based around Vampire Nocturnus but the others are pretty traditional. I went Rakdos instead of mono-black for Stromkirk Captain who combos nicely with Vampire Nighthawk and Gifted Aetherborn. Deathtouch/First Strike is impenetrable defense! Check it out if you want, Vampires are a fun Tribal deck to play.

Countersquall is a great card. I have it in the sideboard, for more control based matches. I also use it against Tron and Scapeshift.


Hello. I have only been able to use Vampire Nighthawk about 2 times, so far. he is alright. It does not really enable Rhonas the Indomitable on it's own, but it is a great blocker, and may act as "spot removal." The interactions between the 3 are fun; Nissa sets up liliana and kiora, for some sweet card advantage, or the creature you want. They bring them back, and cast them for almost free (Nissa). It is a personal combination that I am testing out and enjoying. I play Magic almost every other day, so a lot of my stuff is subject to change. That is why I constantly update the deck.

I had results up--you guys know that, but it made the mage ugly, lol.

APPLE01DOJ thanks. you're probably right regarding the removal suite. ill add some Fatal Push (also helps with my turn 1 problem) and mix up my removal. Bile Blight seems like a fantastic card! ive actually never heard of it before and im extremely greatful for that tip because i suffer against Lingering Souls type of decks.

ima try a few copies of Gurmag Angler in the deck and see if i can fit the big beast in. other than Vampire Nighthawk (which iv strongly been considering other than the fact its another 3 drop) the others dont fit my theme of board controll to much and i dont know if would fit too right in here.

i like Lashwrithe because of the germ token and instant equip possibility. plus it can get huge in grinded games i guess. but i would try swords since theyv dropped in price. which would you suggest?

ill work on a sideboard as soon as i can =0 thanks for the tips on it appreciate it alot man.

I've been testing this, and I'd reccomend tightening up the creatures. Make the Rhonas a fourth Flayer, and I'd have another Bauble if it were me, they are so useful for Goyf. Mabye the Vampire Nighthawk could go for it?

I'm also having issues with Delve and Goyf paired up. Maybe you could run Traverse the Ulvenwald instead of Tasigur, as I think you should only run two of the following effects: Delirium, Delve, and Goyf. Goyf and Delirium synergize because they don't touch your yard, but still take advantage of it. Cheers, I love the deck otherwise!
