Vampire Nighthawk Discussion

loricatuslupus on Kalitas, Traitor of Zombie and friends

First of all I'd suggest immediately cutting the Infectious Horrors, Diamond Mare, Urgoros, Skymarch Bloodletter and Knight of Malice - these don't really seem to fit (especially as one-ofs). Since you're playing Dark Ritual three is definitely a magic number and you should get some more threatening creatures here, at the very least another two copies of Geralf's Messenger and perhaps three Vampire Nighthawks. Your other creature slots have lots of options depending on how you want to use Kalitas and other powerful creatures. If you keep the broodlord then you want more cheaper vampires like Gatekeeper of Malakir or Gifted Aetherborn (with their built-in abilities allowing you to free up spell slots); while swapping your Liliana to her "of the Dark Realms" incarnation and adding playsets of Leechridden Swamp and Korlash, Heir to Blackblade would build on the "lands matter" subtheme Ob Nixilis, the Fallen plus the Blackblade have in common. Leechriddens have won me games. Speaking of mana, I wouldn't bother with the Jungle Hollows: this is Legacy, so if they're only there to enable flashback on one card you're probably better off with basics as they'll always come in untapped and have synergy with other cards like Corrupt and Mutilate. For Kalitas, the first thing that comes to mind here is Call the Bloodline plus any of the many graveyard-castable zombies (e.g. Gravecrawler) plus Blade of the Bloodchief/Eternal Thirst to maximize those counters. Plus maybe Grave Pact? Finally, here's the obligatory link to_my_mono-black legacy deck: The Discard Dominatrix, which might give you some ideas even if it's based more around discarding. Hope that helps!

Just because I love Neheb, the Worthy and Neheb, the Eternal. Also, Minotaur are tied for my most beloved tribe, right there with Dragons. So the fact we got Angrath, Minotaur Pirate and Angrath, the Flame-Chained really excited me, but I want to make a Rakdos Planeswalker that isn't so narrow / broad. The issues I take with Angrath is MP is just a tribal quagmire that isn't really useful since Pirates aren't really even that good. And FC's is decent, but by the time you get him to ult you should probably have already won with Rakdos. Setting up a lingering wincon that far out in the game is just tedious. Even when I do get him out, I tend to win by other means before then.

Neheb, Firestriker

Legendary Creature - Neheb

+1 Neheb, Firestriker deals 3 damage to target creature. If that creature would be destroyed, add to your mana pool.

-4 You may discard any number of cards from your hand. For each non-land card you discard, target creature gets -2/-2 until end of turn. For each land card you discard, target opponent loses 3 life unless they discard a card.

-8 You get an emblem with "Creatures you control have firststrike and deathtouch. Whenever a creature an opponent controls is destroyed during your combat phase, return it to the battlefield under your control."


Now you're cooking with Rakdos!!

Same challenge, because I feel bad for doing a few back-to-back. Ignite the spark of your favorite non-Planeswalker creature. Bonus points if it's something that doesn't have a proper name or isn't Humanoid, such as Tarmogoyf or Vampire Nighthawk, though don't feel like you must be restricted in this manner. Just opening the box a bit more for ya.

City of Brass is too good not to use in this kind of deck also if your running the best creatures in each color you should have Kitchen Finks and Vampire Nighthawk maybe Phantasmal Image too

With any devotion deck I see, my first recommendation is to add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. Its purely better than Cabal Stronghold in that it can give you loads of extra mana as early as turn 3 or 4, where Cabal Stronghold cannot generate more mana than you sink into it until about turn 5-6, which is usually before the game is decided in modern. It would probably be my #1 choice to save for, since its not the cheapest card and you did mention you want to keep this budget.

You also need some one-drop creatures, outside of removal or the few hand control stuff you have, you have literally no turn one play. I recommend stuff like Diregraf Ghoul or Rakdos Cackler or even Vampire Lacerator. I would also recommend Vampire Nighthawk and Bloodghast.

Also, try to get a full playset of Fatal Push into this deck.

Great cards. I went with Gifted Aetherborn over Vampire Nighthawk only for the lower mana cost. I'm hoping Bone Picker works as my flier. Phyrexian Obliterator is awesome and I would definitely play it if I was topping out with Gray Merchant of Asphodel. A Devotion style list looks really cool and I'd like to try it out. Thanks for the ideas!

Im sure you have considered them already, but what about Vampire Nighthawk or Phyrexian Obliterator?

If you're running Heartless Summoning you should really be trying to maximize its effect. Shalai, Voice of Plenty is the only card in your main that gets the full discount, Vampire Nighthawk and Bishop's Soldier get cheaper but their power is halved which is pretty bad. For the sake of argument, you play Heartless Summoning and Bishop's Soldier, you used 2 cards to produce a 1-mana 1/1 with lifelink... eh? Gifted Aetherborn doesn't get cheaper at all but also has its power halved. Its possible you should just cut Heartless Summoning.
