Vampire Nighthawk Discussion
22 hours ago
Hi, today I thought about some changes that would make your deck faster.
- Stensia Masquerade --> Changeling Outcast - this enchantment hurts more than it helps in my opinion. You're better off with "Vampire" that is unblockable so creates an early threat.
- Twilight Prophet --> Minions' Murmurs - not a vampire this time but you get more immediate draw as opposed to slow effect that requires at least turn cycle to start working.
- Metallic Mimic --> Bloodthrone Vampire - Mimic is not a vampire and it's help is minescule, I'd rather put nice vampire that can work as a sac outlet for all those Blood Artist effects.
- Vampire Nighthawk --> Olivia's Bloodsworn - best vampires for Edgar are low costed so you get the same evasion and potential to give some key creatures haste. Also it hurts less from Ad Nauseam .
- Vanquisher's Banner --> Wheel of Fortune or Dark Confidant or Night's Whisper (depending on budget you have) - I personally don't like banner for it's high cost and if you really want better card draw there are way better and cheaper (at least CMC-wise) cards.
- Sunbaked Canyon --> Caves of Koilos - just minor change, I personally think that your deck just like mine needs lands that provide first and then fixing since turn 3 Necropotence sets you up for an amazing game.

Hey I came here from the Deck Help. Definitely like the life gain +1 Epicure of Blood really pings slow. I suggest replacing it with Felidar Sovereign . Vampire Nighthawk and Palace Siege are very good choices.

By using your own spells to kill off a Gray Merchant of Asphodel just to reanimate him, you'll be giving up a ton of card advantage and losing tempo. If you're really interested in abusing the Merchant's ability by getting it to trigger multiple times, I'd consider running blue for bounce effects like Unsummon , or better yet, white for flicker like Cloudshift . You could also set up a Panharmonicon to double the trigger automatically. However, there really isn't any need to do so. The better option is to just invest in the mono-black devotion plan enough that Gray Merchant will kill in one hit. I recommend looking up black devotion lists to get an idea of cards to add. I've had a lot of fun with a devotion zoo deck using 1 drops like Gravecrawler , Gutterbones , and Bloodsoaked Champion with Midnight Oil and Phyrexian Arena to refill. In general, you just want to include the most black mana symbols for the lowest cost (while also bearing card power level in mind). Vampire Nighthawk and Despoiler of Souls are two cards you already have that fit the bill. Some other favorites are Gatekeeper of Malakir , Phyrexian Obliterator , Gifted Aetherborn , Dread Shade , and Geralf's Messenger . These decks can be a little pricey, especially if you include a set of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . If you're looking for a more gradual form of life drain, Orzhov lists are a popular way to do so. They run cards more in the vein of Obzedat, Ghost Council , Wall of Limbs , and Kambal, Consul of Allocation . They might also take advantage of lifegain with Ajani's Pridemate , Felidar Sovereign , or the Sanguine Bond / Exquisite Blood combo. One of the reasons these decks are so popular is that they can easily be built on a budget. As a final note, I'd like to point out that you're currently lacking the mana needed for the curve you have. I'd want at least 20 lands here and maybe as many as 25 to avoid constant mana screw. Good luck with your build!

I dont know your meta, so might be a non-issue, put play tested your deck a couple of time. The turn you normal start to be able to really impact the board (defend yourself, attack etc) is turn 5 or 6. That is a bit late if your opponents are doing stuff those turns.
Your decks starts going after that but is still not doing anything insane. To really get things started you need to get to +t10
Id try lower your curve a bit. Replace some of these cards (not all) with things that ramp or have some impact early game. Reiver Demon , Lord of the Void , Exsanguinate , Army of the Damned , Dread Cacodemon , Demolition Stomper , Marionette Master , Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Spine of Ish Sah , Scour from Existence , Silverskin Armor , Revel in Riches , Demolition Stomper , Glaring Spotlight .
Some suggestion that gives you some early game plays Mind Stone , Palladium Myr , Voltaic Servant , Foundry Inspector , Vampire Nighthawk (people hate attacking in to that) Plague Myr , Filigree Familiar or really whatever mana stones you have at hand.

Dark Prophecy could be something to consider for opponents who have a lot of removal/board wipes... I think Profane Command with Liliana of the Dark Realms would be great for putting out swamps to consistently get creatures/devotion enablers in play... and then wi5th the "choose 2" from command you can get Gray Merchant of Asphodel from the yard as well as just drain life from the opponent.... Lashwrithe might be great to slap onto Vampire Nighthawk as well.

Also, if you want to annoy your opponent:
Elegant Edgecrafters has the amusing effect that it can't be blocked by common deathtouching vampires.
Giant Adephage can also trample over deathtouching blockers, and creates a copy of itself, effectively surviving.
Precursor Golem is unusually punishing to non-targeted removal: a Murder will kill all of them, but a Cruel Edict only kills one. They also get really fun with the Prey Upon or Giant Growth you have in your deck.

I've got something similar in the works myself LOI is defo the best Sorin for vamp tribal. I used Anguished Unmaking for my signature spell myself mainly for flavor reason but also because having instant speed cheap removal for almost anything is nice. If you are sticking with 21 lands i would honestly remove all the 5cmc+ things that don't do much when they hit the battlefield. Personally i don't even have Sorin, Grim Nemesis mainly because the game should already be over or mostly over by the time you play him especially with 21 lands. Personally i would remove him as well as Defiant Bloodlord , Epicure of Blood and Necropolis Regent . You defo need to make room for Bloodghast , Bloodthrone Vampire , Blood Artist , Vampire Nighthawk and New Blood . I'm probably forgetting some others myself. Orzhov Signet as well if you face mana issues.
