Vicious Conquistador Discussion
2 weeks ago
Great deck, especially for someone new to magic! However, I do recommend swapping out one swamp or the Aether Hub for either a second Vicious Conquistador or a second Vraska's Contempt. Secondly, I find Fungal Infection kinda meh. I suggest swapping them for more Golden Demises, though if you like them and they work for you, then keep them in! Finally, if you want to get to exactly 60 cards, I recommend dropping either a Cast Down or a Bone Picker.

Thank you for the suggestions. I could see Captivating Vampire, I have two of those and I like getting more boosters. Vampire Nocturnus, like you said, is only if the budget is there for it. The deck would also have to be retooled to be more black-centric, right now it stands at 13 black cards, which neutralizes its effectiveness.
I do really like Terminate though, I'll have to pick some of those up. Thanks for the suggestions, and the video! I might switch out the Vicious Conquistador for Indulgent Aristocrat, as that video has.

Thanks, Alookeva, these are some very useful tips!
Dusk Legion Zealot is something I kept considering for a long time now, but I just can't decide which cards to remove to make a place for it. Maybe I should get rid of Vicious Conquistador, even if it would slow the mana curve a bit?

Thank you liljramos88. I'm pretty undecided between Skymarcher Aspirant and Vicious Conquistador, as the second one needs just one Legion Lieutenant to survive a Golden Demise. I think I'll have to run some tests.
Regarding Cartouche of Solidarity, I can see the advantage of it, although I would like to keep this a lifelink deck. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle sounds like a very fitting suggestion, I'll see if I can get my hands on a couple of them!

Edgar decks need to be fast. Replace the tapped lands with lands that don't come into play tapped as far as possible. Play lots of small vampires, since Edgar will make them big anyway.
You could probably cut some of the more expensive creatures. Put in cheaper Vampires like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodcrazed Paladin, Malakir Cullblade, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Indulgent Aristocrat, Stromkirk Noble, Vicious Conquistador, Pulse Tracker, Shadow Alley Denizen, Markov Blademaster to get multiple tokens. Inspiring Cleric doesn't have enough of an impact.
You could potentially replace Avacyn with Eldrazi Monument for the earlier indestructible and +1/+1.
Elbrus is too expensive and not very useful. You should also drop Angelic Destiny and Noble Purpose.

Nice looking deck! I've been playing around with something similar for a while now with a few friends. Have you considered adding Vicious Conquistador? If your going aggressive he is a lovely turn one play, even better if you can follow it up with a Legion Lieutenant turn two. The board wipe I've been using is Dusk / Dawn as it misses most of my vampires and can recur a ton of creatures. Also, I hate that Moment of Craving is now meta -.-

I have a few suggestions after looking at your set up here.
Mana Base: (24)
2x Field of Ruin - optional but handy in a pinch to fetch a color you are getting screwed on
3x Ifnir Deadlands - sac a desert to take out a threat of your opponents. (I like this desert)
4x Shefet Dunes - Lets you sac a desert late game to make a big push, and you really don't care about paying a life for a mana.
Explanation: Fill the remaining spots with basic mana, Personally feel like 20 is too low, you have little ramp and not much card draw - 24 is a much safer bet. Plus some of the deserts fill in nicely to give you an extra push to victory.
Explanation: First off Vicious Conquistador seemed super out of place, especially as a one-of. I would replace this with another Dusk Legion Zealot. Also personally not a huge fan of your other one-of Bishop of Binding. You are exiling a creature, GREAT! But in order to really make him shine you need to swing in with him, making him open to removal (Fumigate, and other attacking instants) I do think he is a good sideboard creature. I also feel like Famished Paladin might be wasted for reasons I will explain later. Although leaving him in and taking out some Instants or Sorceries, might be ok. But that Would be personal preference.
I think you want to focus on your core creatures being: Dusk Legion Zealot, Legion Lieutenant & Martyr of Dusk. Where Twilight Prophet & Champion of Dusk are nice late game closers, one gives you draw and the other takes life and gives it to you. The extra fluff in the Chupies and Forerunner is probably better as some extra enchantments.
TBH I think your spells and artifacts need to go. Pride of Conquerors is better off as a radiant destiny, Azor's Gateway Flip with you current curve you would need to hit and exile one creature from each CMC including your Vraska. Moment of Triumph is OK but wouldn't it be better to pump out some tokens instead??
2x Fatal Push - great removal, takes care of a lot of early threats
4x Queen's Commission - The most annoying thing about the vamp decks is the ability to create lifelink tokens and pump them up
4x Call to the Feast - These will give you such a crazy board state.
Your enchantments are looking great only have a couple suggestions here.
4x Radiant Destiny - Should be your gameplan, get ascended and win
