Vampire Nighthawk Discussion
19 hours ago
Dark Confidant is a great card. In this build, I just could not find the space for him. I was considering 2 (in place of Courser) because 4 would be too much damage in concert with: 4x Phyrexian Obliterator, Tasigur, the Golden Fang, 3x Thoughtseize, Spellskite's activated ability, etc.
Scooze is too slow to get any real life back and is just killed immediately in the meta where I play. Vampire Nighthawk is great but a singleton is difficult for me to depend on when I rarely see it once sided in for G2-3.
The reason for -2 Dark Confidant and +2 Courser of Kruphix is that courser is simply bigger and needs at least 2 Lightning Bolts invested to remove. The incidental card advantage will never be as great as DC, but she will have to do.

I'd throw some Vampire Nighthawks in for Soulflayer.

Don't replace Vampire Nighthawk, the guy is a stud.
But if you really want to, the turn 1 Hypnotic Specter when you draw Dark Ritual is a game winner. There's a reason the sister has been in print for like 20 years and is legal in all formats. He's a well designed card. I run nighthawk in mine, though.
If you want to check my modern competitive version of this kind of build, you can look here: Phyrexian Face-Desecration. It's still a work in progress, and I could use any advice you got.

I am new to magic and I am trying to optimize my deck so I can answer my opponent as quickly as they play. I currently run a UB theft midrange deck that usually becomes stable after turn 6-8.
I want to optimize my spells to maximize their effectiveness but balance them with speed. At the moment my deck feels too slow, but I am too new to know for sure. At the moment, it's first big play is usually on turn 3 or 4, and by big play I mean Drown in Sorrow or Vampire Nighthawk.
At best I play a Duress turn 1, and at worst my first 2 lands enter tapped and I have no cmc=1 or 2 cards in hand.
So here's my question: When do the fastest decks win (on average, not a 1 in a million hand / coin flip) and by what turn do the majority of decks get out of hand? Basically, how fast is modern? Do I need a turn 1 play every game, or is a land then pass just fine? What about turn 2? I usually transmute on turn 3 for a turn 4 play, but that feels way too slow to be competitive. If I play a removal or counter on turn 2 then a wipe on turn 4, is that fast enough?
Thanks for any help, it's all appreciated. I know this should probably be on deck help, but I'm not really asking about my deck in particular. I only included a few of my cards to give an idea of how fast I currently play and how that compares to the meta. Thanks again!

You know, I actually really like this. I would take out the Spire Tracers for more Bitterblossom or maybe some life gaining (not entirely sure what to put in for that kind of effect, maybe Vampire Nighthawk??) but it just has this ding effect that I love.

You need to cut some cards.
IMO these are some of the weaker ones, or ones that don't support the theme:
Lightning Storm - WTF? This is a weird card
Chancellor of the Dross - Too expensive to not be a win-con
Markov Blademaster - Awesome in standard, too small in EDH
Vampire Nighthawk - BROKEN in standard, too small in EDH
Burning Earth - You traded that card to me, besides, you have 2 showing in this EDH deck!
Crypt Ghast - GREAT card, better in monoblack, not even close to a vampire
Curse of Stalked Prey - Fun card, on theme, great in standard, Bad in EDH...
Helm of Possession - Not really on theme, you have no crappy tokens to feed it, so not being used to it's potential... I'd leave this one alone for now. I'd trade it for Glaring Spotlight so Olivia and friends can get at ANY creature they want, anytime.
