Vampire Nighthawk Discussion

Burn can be rough. Having all basics does help a lot because we aren't giving them 2 free Lava Spike each game through fetch shock, but a smart burn player can easily play around the Gray Merchant of Asphodel now that they have access to Atarka's Command in addition to Skullcrack.

I thought the Grey Merchant would be enough to get there but the burn matchup is really slow. That's why I added the 2 Dragon's Claw to the sideboard. Burn is definitely easier for this deck to deal with than some other midrange decks, but it just needed a little something extra to push the game on until the Merchants can take it home. Maybe extra Vampire Nighthawk would be better. In fact, I'm going to make that change right now.

well, that's a tough question. I always look to cut higher CMC cards, because those are the cards that are hardest to play. The cards I suggest considering cutting back: Archangel of Thune, Whip of Erebos, Vampire Nighthawk.

I'd say these cards would be other options: Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Liliana of the Veil, Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, and Bitterblossom.

I think Precinct Captain is close to Bitterblossom - same CMC, both token generators. If you decide to add the Captain, I'd cut that number of Blossoms. Or try it with both and see which works best. I'd wager the Blossom, for tokens, the Captain for creature strength.

Rakdos Cackler would be a great addition. Child of Night is great, and whether you wanted to ebb into vampires or not, Vampire Nighthawk is great. Kragma Butcher keeps the aggressive attitude well. Also see Borderland Marauder.

not a bad frame here so far. Just needs a little love and some polishing :)

VampireNighthawk999 I have thought about this card as an option for a while now but I think it will tip the balance of color to black too far. I want to keep it around half and half for the turn one creature chances. I mainly have Markov Blademaster in here as a finisher to combo with Whispersilk Cloak and Curse of Stalked Prey it seems like a nice combo to get an insane amount of counters sense she has double strike as well. Do you have any ideas on changes to keeps the half and half style if I added Vampire Nighthawk

fatdroid13 I like Blade of the Bloodchief but I feel that its not needed because I have Curse of Stalked Prey unless you think I still should put it in to have even more counters, I thought that it might just be too much focus on counters. the only thing is I don't know what to remove to add Blade of the Bloodchief I don't want to remove my 2 artifacts because they go with my combos, do you have any ideas?

Hi!I played vampires for a long time in various formats and I found that Vampire Nighthawk worked better than Markov Blademaster, so I might suggest you make the switch.

Good luck!

Interesting deck. From past experience, I suggest switching the Stromkirk Nobles for Vampire Lacerators. You may also want to try out Vampire Nighthawk.
