Vampire Nighthawk Discussion

Bitterblossom is better than Gather the Townsfolk, as is Lingering Souls to Spectral Procession, although they are often run side by side. This deck looks like it's half B/W tokens, half B/W control. You need to decide which one you are, as running cards like Vampire Nighthawk and Intangible Virtue in the same deck isn't ideal.

Hey there! I've been playing my Kaalia deck for a long time. I'd like to offer more specific advice, but first I must know, what's your budget, level of competition, and theme you're going for? They'll effect my specific card recommendations. Either way, consider looking at my list for a small primer and some inspiration. For now I'll offer thoughts based on a more typical Kaalia-centric build.

I think you're a bit creature heavy. A fair number of your creatures either can't be cheated out with Kaalia, offer little impact when played, or don't lend themselves well to Kaalia's overall goal. A typical build wants to cheat fatties out as quickly as possible. I can see a certain theme you're going for, soldiers and aggro, but again, I'd need to know your design goals before going too deeply into cuts/suggestions.

I will say, though, that I don't think that smaller creatures like Typhoid Rats, Vampire Nighthawk, Spike Jester, Mirran Crusader, Truefire Paladin, Stormblood Berserker, Loyal Sentry, Duty-Bound Dead pull their weight in EDH. Additionally, creatures with Battalion or Soulbond might prove difficult to trigger for their reward.

Planeswalkers can be a bit of an awkward include in Kaalia. Typically you're swinging all-out with witth way to protector them. Still, they lend themselves better to how you're currently built than a typical build.

You may look into mors selective wraths. Akroma's Vengeance over Planar Cleansing is not only cheaper but preserves your Planeswalkers. Austere Command and Merciless Eviction can answer certain threats while preserving your own.

Consider some more unconditional spot removal such as Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, or Anguished Unmaking. You might want more removal for non-creature threats as well.

Artifact wise, you may do well with some ramp and the "two boots", Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots. Kaalia has a lot of high-value-targets and is often one themselves. The ramp on the other hand helps you get your threats out faster should Kaalia be hated on, and helps color fixing in a color-greedy deck.

Ways to refill your hand will do you well. Phyrexian Arena's getting a reprint in Conspiracy, Necropotence is pretty cheap following EMA, Wheel of Fortune is a little expensive, but Dragon Mage is Kaalia playable and is under a couple bucks. There's other cards, such as Night's Whisper, Bloodgift Demon, or Read the Bones, but none as powerful as the aforementioned.

Lands can obviously be upgraded to their quicker, more expensive counterparts. I won't touch on those, but I advise looking at the Utility Lands that other decks use and find what's of value to you. Homeward Path, Vault of the Archangel, Volrath's Stronghold, Mystifying Maze are a few among many.

Yeah, just let me know where you want to go and I'll give you some more specific advice. I tend to be a hyper competitive player but i recognize someone who values fun more than playing something more ruthless. I do have to say, what you're tryign to accomplish with the lower part of your curve, the soldiers and aggro, may lend themselves well to a Queen Marchesa build. I'd take a look into building around her if you want to run too more stream-line decks.

aholder7 I think you may have been right. I decided to just go ahead and drop the Disfigures with my new addition of Vampire Nighthawk and put in another Victim of Night

I'd add Vampire Nighthawk because he is Frank Millar's Dark Knight.... as a vampire.

I think this is a fantastic meta to be packing sideboard or even mainboard boardwipes for company and eldrazi matchups. The risk with only BW is only having discard and path as your interaction - lacking decay or bolt or terminate leaves you a little vulnerable.

I'd also consider Vampire Nighthawk since infect and affinity both nearly fold to it and it's a great start to beating burn.

"I want something like her, but cheaper." I want millions but I still have to get up every morning to get paid :)

No offense but I mean by that we still don't know what's her purpose in your deck. There is no other 'thing like her but cheaper' since it's a planeswalker with a very particular design. You can find creature replacement such as Vampire Nighthawk, but for the rest of her abilities it's gonna be really hard to find something that fits considering all the actions she can do on her own ;)

Golgari Rot Farm and Gravecrawler are probably not ideal, to help you take some cards off the list. Full art lands would be cool, like the bowl islands from Zendikar.



Vampire Nighthawk

Brisela, Voice of Nightmares

But actually, in black and white, I'd do Emeria Shepherd. That looks pretty awesome.

Hey man, thanks for the help on the Tariel, Reckoner of Souls EDH advice you gave me. I appreciate it. What do you recommend over Titan's Strength Vampire Nighthawk and Knight of Infamy? I have most of the things that you recommended so far. So the way it stands I may go off and start the editing process sometime today. :D

Thanks again.
