Vampire Nighthawk Discussion
1 hour ago
Hi. I really do enjoy this type of deck; in fact, I made one just like it not too long ago. I would recommend putting in some beaters, or perhaps some more extort creatures. 12 is not very many. Also, Demon's Horn can prove to be a fun interaction when put with Sanguine Bond. I personally enjoy Vampire Nighthawk here as well.

I see the Vault Skirge you have going there, but have you considered Vampire Nighthawk? Flying, Lifelink, and Deathtouch. I don't know if that's a priority for you or anything, but I'd be interested in getting as many abilities as possible onto the Flayer when you cast him. This means finding cards with 2-3 abilities each, rather than one or two useful ones. That's why I like to see you including that Akroma and the Reaver.
Another thing to consider is getting those creatures into your graveyard so that you can use them. If you draw yourself a Flayer with only a Lotleth Troll in your graveyard, it will be a disappointment at best. But, if you've T5 Traumatized yourself, you're going to have a lot more options. Also take a look at Corpse Connoisseur to select a couple particularly juicy things to feed it, or be especially brave and go all the way with a Morality Shift. There's the obvious ones like Entomb and Buried Alive that also cover this. You might be able to make cards like Gifts Ungiven and Intuition work as well. Survival of the Fittest is an excellent candidate to fuel this deck overall.
If you accidentally draw into one of your juicy things, there are cards like Careful Study that put them where they belong. I see you already have Faithless Looting; that's good. There's also Thirst for Knowledge.
Another thing to consider: I know the deck is only 60 cards, but, coming from an EDH player, what if you don't ever draw the Soulflayer? It's possible, and your deck needs to do something without it. Look for cards that benefit a lot from having things in your graveyard. I like the two Golgari trolls you've got, but don't be afraid to dream a little bigger. Cards like Splinterfright, Mortivore, and Nighthowler come to mind.
Something that might not exactly fit, but is still interesting and in this same vein, is Necrotic Ooze. You don't have too many activated abilities, but you might be able to find room for it.
Overall, I really like the deck. I was intrigued by the idea of Soulflayer when I first saw it, and I'm happy to see someone is actually going to make it happen.

Maybe cut Sands for Memory Erosion, since it has a nimial investment after it hits.
Also, do you think a Darkness would help instead of a Darkblast if not just a way to survive an extra turn?
Or running Vampire Nighthawk to help with races? Could at least be a good sideboard card.
Hope it helps! Happy Milling!

thanks for commenting :)
this deck definitely is more creature heavy. if you splash 4 blue black lands you could use Plea for Power instead of Underworld Connections. draw three or take an extra turn which is deadly in a tempo vamp deck. all for 1U mana. technically wouldn't be splashing blue or slowing the deck down if you use innistrad lands. Vampire Nighthawk and Sorin Markov definitely help with the underworld connections though. why not use Feast of Blood for life gain? also Butcher of Malakir is a 7 drop. takes way too long to get it out and if someone counters it theres your turn wasted. why not drop in a stronger vampire creature that buffs the rest of your vampires? Bloodlord of Vaasgoth or Necropolis Regent. also why not use Vampire Hexmage? your deck is more creature heavy to handle it unlike mine. someone drops a planeswalker you sac hexmage and the planeswalker is gone. also goes for divinity counters, or any other pesky counters in play that interfere. I don't really use them because I focus on cruel control; however, they aren't to be overlooked.
also EVERY mono black deck needs to run Dark Ritual. it became a mythic for a reason, and not a shitty mythic either. solid inexpensive card. turn 2 sorin markov in play or turn 2 Vampire Nocturnus in play or even Bloodline Keeper Flip to drop in tokens.

What i find really hard to decide:

In this thread: people suggest decks they don't play can be built on a budget. People who actually play those decks point out why that's not true.
Izzet delver is doable. Sure it's not tier 1 but it's totally not bad.
Rakdos kiln fiend is possible. It's basically Kiln Fiend and red pump spells, of which there are a fair few, along with burn spells. Splash black sometimes for an infect win.
Azorius tempo and fliers. Judge's Familiar and efficient 2 mana fliers with counter spells.

Honestly I think you can drop the Blood Artist, Sangromancer, and maybe even Duress for those two bad boys. You could also drop 1-2 copies of Vampire Nighthawk, because both Captivating Vampire and Vampire Nocturnus are better than all of those cards.
