Buckminsterfullerene on Dont arrest me plz. (extort)

3 hours ago

I would argue that Grasp of Darkness is better than Dead Weight , although Victim of Night or Go for the Throat would be better for a 2-drop. You're also going to want to thin up your creatures in favor of low-cost spells. 20 or fewer creatures would be best, with plenty of 1- and 2- drop instants, enchantments, and sorceries to maximize your extort potential. I'd keep 4x Crypt Ghast for sure, since the extra mana will be necessary for triggering all those extorts. If you really want to keep things like Vampire Nighthawk for offense, might I suggest Pontiff of Blight as a powerful wall that keeps your critters extorting? I'm digging Blood Scrivener , one way or the other, so defs keep him, though. Maybe think about adding some phyrexian spells like Dismember and Marrow Shards as the pain payment won't hurt so much, and keeps mana open for extortion. +1 for extortion fun, though! Keep up the good work! Try the Noble format out!

To answer your question, a general mono black aggro deck in modern will run Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , Disfigure , Liliana of the Veil , and then big creatures like Phyrexian Obliterator , Master of the Feast , Lashwrithe , Vampire Nighthawk , and Gatekeeper of Malakir .

How about adding Vampire Nighthawk , Bloodsoaked Champion , Bloodghast and Gravecrawler for some early aggression?

possible generals:

Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord when apostles are in the graveyard he'll be +6/+6 or better, then cast another one out and get 'em all back from the dead.

Savra, Queen of the Golgari totally wipe the board, you'll need some good life link critters though to make up for the loss of life to activate it. Eternal Thirst , Whip of Erebos and Vampiric Link would be good also the ever-awesome Vampire Nighthawk it is also a good rattlesnake.

Skullbriar, the Walking Grave he's just cool.

Pharika, God of Affliction just a strong card, not GREAT in the deck though.

good demons: Griselbrand , Ravenous Demon  Flip , Archdemon of Unx , Demon of Death's Gate (you can cast him via apostle-sac even if he is in your hand), Harvester of Souls , Infernal Denizen (take other commander) Lord of the Void , Ob Nixilis, Unshackled (mean) Pestilence Demon (could be useful) Reaper from the Abyss , Rune-Scarred Demon (this one is the best one because it is free if you have bloodbond out, just search up another apostle and boom hit it again), Shadowborn Demon , Spirit of the Night

also Dimir House Guard works as a tutor.

I think it makes a good deck, but maybe not. let me know what you think.

Drop Oblivion Ring , Darkblast , Hero's Downfall , Vampire Nighthawk and a couple of Pack Rat s

Add Liliana of the Veil , more Tidehollow Sculler , either Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Elspeth, Knight-Errant and another path to exile.

You might also want Marsh Flats in the mana base.

Bropocalyptica on Devotion to Darkness (Would like some feedback!)

Geralf's Messenger and Bloodghast work really well when you're ok with wiping your own board a lot with stuff like Smallpox and Mutilate while offering a lot of (recurring) devotion.

Consider Victim of Night over Go for the Throat so you don't get screwed against affinity on game 1.

I'd run Gatekeeper of Malakir over Ghastlord of Fugue any day for how economical it is. Kill spell + beater is always a plus. The Ghastlord of Fugue is kinda slow unless you have enough mana from Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . Even then, that's a huge mana commitment for something that doesn't really do anything when it hits the board. If it had haste or an ETB trigger, I'd say it'd be useful, but for that mana you might as well be dropping something else (Gray Merchant of Asphodel ).

I think you're going to find that between Dismember and Phyrexian Arena you may have some issues racing aggro decks without a Phyrexian Obliterator out. I found that running a 1 or 2 of Lashwrithe and a couple of Inkmoth Nexus (not a big deal to run if you have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth s) can help clutch out that extra lifelink from your Vampire Nighthawk s or provide an alternate wincon if your board gets wiped. This is, of course, if you feel you can make space for it.

Other than that, pretty decent list. +1 from me.

Vampire Player here whit a couple of sugestions

1.- Main Board Damnation. whit 1 Blood Artist you get a huge advantage in life points, whit 2 Blood Artist you win the game

2.- Change Captivating Vampire for Stromkirk Captain same CMC same +1/+1 bonus but the global First Strike is more usefull than the stealing efect, and deadly when combined whit Vampire Nighthawk deathtouch

3.- Try playing all 4 Vampire Nocturnus is a greath win condition. and maybe run a couple Viscera Seer to change the top card of your deck for something that trigers nocturnus (also a free sac engine is great for dealing the last dammage points whit blood artist)

4.- For the Red Splash i play 2 Blood Crypt and 4 Dragonskull Summit but i dont have Cavern of Souls 6 red sources work good for me ass i only run the Captains

Love a good vampire deck whit Blood Artist as an MVP Price
