Vampire Nighthawk Discussion

Hey -Bean-, I like Stromkirk Captain, but I really think Vampire Nighthawk is much more of a threat on curve three and he is really a pain in the ass with the Blade of the Bloodchief.

I agree that Night's Whisper is easier to cast, the only reason that I am using Sign in Blood is because I already have them.

Hey, Vampire Nighthawk is always going to be great! You might want to have a look at red spells like Stromkirk Captain, too.

Hopere on So many colors.

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Instead of swamp. It turns Ancient Ziggurat into a swamp, and it also helps with anything that costs 2 black, like Vampire Nighthawk. Having one wouldn't hurt if nothing else. Oh and fetches, maybe even evolving wilds should also be considered. Even the tap budget fetches.

There are just a few cards that have another one that does it better. Mark of the Vampire can be Basilisk Collar, Vampire Nighthawk would do some work in here. I would cut the landfall and delete cards as they don't really helps your game plan.

By the time something like Ampryn Tactician your opponent may have played Wrath of God, targeted removal, or the temporary boost won't win you think game.

Shadow Slice is a favourite of mine but it's so slow and hard to get value out of, it is also a late game card that demands a board state to be useful, without winning the game, those two things together in a late game card is what you don't want in a high cost (3+) card.

Some really good early life gain in these colours are Suture Priest, Soul Warden, and Soul's Attendant.

A black white midrange deck with some life gain has a powerful tool at it's disposal. Anguished Unmaking. That card is intense! Instant speed bum fuck a permanent so hard it doesn't hit the grave! Only at the cost of 3 life. With this said that's why Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is so great, one your ahead she lets you stay ahead. A deck like this could use Bitterblossom well now that I think about it.

Good luck!

Draft 3.0 Looks good, no obvious bad cards. The only thing I could think of is adding more ramp and card draw, Deathreap Ritual, for example. Also some flying defense. I can give you a Stinkweed Imp. Vampire Nighthawk can help also if you don't mind losing the theme a bit. The deck may have a bit too many 6+ casting cost cards, but that might be a "play it and see" thing to get a feel for the curve.

Looks good!

Also replace those Vivid lands with the Shockland, a myriad landscape, checkland, etc... basically any dual that comes into play untapped somehow or is ramp in it's self. Oh, and the Manland. You won against Maelstrom because of that card.

I like this. What about some durdle like Vampire Nighthawk, a 3/3 with that suite of abilities?

Possible options as well could be:

  • Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet: great value and get something with your kill spells, plus you can repeatedly sac gravecrawler and other zombies/vampires to buff him
  • Vampire Nighthawk: could turn 3 into turn 4
  • Lashwrithe pay the equip in life and gain it back on the swing (plus 2 to devotion)

Maybeboard options:

So, I can be a goofy bastard sometimes. I like witty and "random" humor, but sometimes it just gets out of hand...

As proof, here are several parody songs I wrote about The Game of Cardboard Crack. Most of them are old-school hip-hop. Hope that's okay.

  1. "Bolzter-N-The-Hood," by Weezy-G, theme song for Bolster a Corpsejack Menace to Society...

    Drew 7 quick, at about noon
    Gotta play a Corpsejack Menace or two
    Cast Hardened Scales before the play begins
    Then get ready for the bitchin' from my friends
    Simic Initiate, turn two, trigger-time
    Cuz nerds at the path can't Interpret the Signs
    Abzan Falconer, a whole playset
    And some Charms and Battle Priests to fill out the rest
    Bailed out some turns, bolstered my weapon
    Just as I thought target fool kept steppin'
    Jumped on T4, hit the juice on T5
    I got counters front back, and side to side
    Then I played an MP3 (3)
    While buyin' new shit from WotC
    It was Bolster Bolster and the Abzan Menace
    Then I made my own deck and it looks somethin' like this
    Feat of Resistance beats your 6/4
    Mutant's Prey bitches, Burst of Strength hoes
    Mulligan or draw, it's all the same scoop
    Knuckleheads out there cold playin' to first-to-two
    An opponent rolls up, who can it be
    A fresh, bling deck worth a whole pound of weed
    He came to the game table and started to say
    It's all about makin' them R.T.F.C.
    [chorus]Cuz nerds in Modern are always hard
    You come talkin' that trash, we'll pull your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life, but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    That's E. is the spot where I cast my stack
    My man E is on that cardboard crack
    My man used to be a friend of mine
    Till I caught him in my 'yard tryina' steal my Hydra
    Cast Treasured Find after I sided it in
    He got 2-for-1ed when he did it again
    Little did he know I got the mana to play
    Planeswalker dead, Top 8, Good Game
    [chorus]Cuz nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll mill your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    Bored as hell and I wanna cast spells
    So I went to a spot where other nerds dwell
    The kids out there jockin' Deathmist Raptor
    You're lucky I ain't playsettin' Siege Rhino, ya bastids...
    My life hits 40 and I start thinkin'
    I got 8 8/8s, your battlefield's shrinkin'
    Tap to Outlast, Phalanx Leader gets cast
    Before I pass, Jack Forcefully Adapts
    Ya go into ya bag, and ya get out ya pad
    Thinkin' you would go 2-and-0, and go online and brag
    You write it all down like you can't believe
    You about to R-A-G-E-to-the-Q-U-I-T
    You go, "no attack, pass," wouldn't ya know
    Jack icey like a pimp, attack you bro'
    Got the judge pumped up, like he's booin' for you
    Bioshift Scute Mob, give him a +1 counter, too[chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    You come talkin' that trash, we'll discard your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    I'm castin' hard like I'm playin' control
    Strive for Solidarity of Heroes
    I looked at my opponent and he said, "Oh, brother"
    He countered my hydra, but I cast another
    Flyin' in ya' face, I spin-down ya' die
    Green, black, white, Temples of Scry
    Did I forget to mention Primordial Hydra?
    Gotta mention all my cards before I finish my rhyme
    Faces get beat for resistin' my deck
    Dromoka's Command sac's your enchantment
    My deck is broken, attackin' me is a crime
    Sure, 3-out-of-5, if you got the time
    [chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll play your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't quote me boy, I ain't win shit[/chorus]
    My opponents go to block, but they got no 'field
    Plus I got protection from your Repeal
    Two corpsejacks, and your response?
    Mill my deck? I'll 'board in Varolz
    Be a good sport, said the judge
    Don't mainboard Abzan Advantage
    Use a calculator to confirm the damage
    And a 100/100 is more than most can manage
    I don't use fetches, I do it wit' painlands
    I could do wit' basic Forests, Swamps and Plains, man
    No Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit yet
    But get ready to mainboard that Murder
    [chorus]Cuz the nerds in Modern are always hard
    Come talkin' that trash, we'll counter your card
    Knowin' nuttin' in life but to win legit
    Don't play Legacy, it's competitive as shit[/chorus]
  2. "Pump Around," by Evercast, theme song of eyes2sky's Pimpin' Up Wall of Zombie limbs!!!

    Life is up, counter in
    Let me begin
    I came to win
    Attack me, that's a sin
    Drown in dice when I sack up
    Spike, ya better back up
    Try to play the role and Suture Priest will act up
    Life up, Wall up
    Touch of Moonglove up
    If you got removal then, punk you better use it
    Wall of Limbs, Nyx-Fleece Ram
    My Dying Wish
    Is Murder Investigations
    Block it, pump it
    Sac it anyway
    And I deal more damage than nerds at ya Local Gaming Shop
    Sho nuff, I got lots of Exquisite Bonds
    Plus Vampire Nighthawks
    [chorus] I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Dump 'em out, dump 'em out, dump 'em out
    Dump 'em out, pump up, and win now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]
    I'll cut your deck like Mike Holmes' show
    If Jimmy steps up, infinite combo
    Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond
    And I got more triggers than North Korea got bombs
    Just like Prodigal Sorcerer I've returned
    Got no blue or red spells, still you'll get burned
    'Cause I got life and you ain't got none
    If you come to battle bring Protection
    But if you do you're a fool, 'cause I deal to the face
    Try to go 50 with me, you come in last place
    I got the Wall, come get your Limbs
    'Cause when I play Magic, I play like Tims
    [chorus] I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Dump 'em out, dump 'em out, dump 'em out
    Dump 'em out, pump up, and win now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]
    I Consume Spirits, and Doom Blade a lot
    I never Diabolic Tutor 'cause I get what I want
    Ya better get a Tournament player
    Like Andrew Cuneo
    To try and play me out like as if my name were Yu-Gi-Oh
    But I ain't goin' out like no kid-game
    Get used to one style and I might have to make
    The change up up and around, new strategies now
    Take all your life and ya' wake up in your own graveyard
    Lingering Souls, Lingering Souls
    I'm spittin' out 1/1 Spirits and 1/1 Soldiers too bro
    [chorus] But I came to get counters, I came to get counters
    So get out your dice and help me count 'em
    Help me count, help me count, help me count
    Help me count my counters up now
    Pump, pump, pump (only Wall of Limbs) (3x)
    Pump up, pump up, and win now [/chorus]
