Hi_diddly_ho_neighbor on JLK's Shadowborn Apostle l Game Knights #18

Us_marine91 - that is tough since the Shadowborn Apostles alone will cost you around $100 for 30 of them. That being said, I would suggest looking for cards with similar effects to the non-budget options in JLK's deck. For example, Vindictive Vampire and Cruel Celebrant are budget alternatives to Blood Artist, or Butcher of Malakir is a budget version of Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact. Then I would look for cards that have effects which are "close enough" to some of the more expensive options. For example, Command the Dreadhorde, Bolas's Citadel, Pitiless Plunderer, and Dark Prophecy can all act as passable stand-ins for Remembrance (I can't believe that card has somehow crept up to $5!), Thrumming Stone, Black Market, and Phyrexian Arena respectively.

I'd also recommend checking out EDHrec's Shadowborn Apostle page. There you can see which commander's are used for that particular strategy. They also have a budget filter which may help you find some replacement cards.

i would trade Falkenrath Noble for Vindictive Vampire as it flies and causes loss of life instead of preventable damage, at the same mana cost

Hey, Vindictive Vampire is a unique aristocrat because it does damage not loss of life to opponents. If you equip/enchant Vindictive with a source of infect then any time it does damage to an opponent that damage is poison counters. With the aristocrat strategy Vindictive with infect can kill your opponents fast and Vindictive is still a good card without infect.

With the $400+ budget consider including more cards that are good with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth ?

Necropotence is black's best source of repeatable card draw in Commander. Since you start with 40 life then you can put a ton of cards into your hand and if you have Reliquary Tower on the battlefield keep them. Necro is busted with Phyrexian mana because for 6 life you can cast it for free.

Necropotence and Citadel interaction is excellent because you can see the top card of your library with Citadel and choose to activate Necro to remove the land from the top of your library. Then when you hit a nonland card you can cast it for free with life with Citadel. Citadel is also busted with Phyrexian mana because then it's not six mana it's three and 6 life.

Good luck with your deck.

Main things I'd cut: Sangromancer , Vindictive Vampire , Bloodcrazed Paladin , Blood Seeker , Temporal Extortion , Exquisite Blood . I don't think the lifegain does too much here.

Definitely add: Skullclamp (one of the best cards in the deck), Dusk Legion Zealot low impact, but you generally want to get a bunch of creatures out early, Viscera Seer super strong and again, this is a deck where you really want to start out strong, Painful Truths (the best draw spell in Mardu), Indulgent Aristocrat (super strong way to aggro people out while also getting a board presence early), Yahenni, Undying Partisan this just doesn't ever die and gets very big

I'd recommend: Nihil Spellbomb (I think this is almost always a mustplay in black.)

I'm thinking you could use Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven as a life gain engine to fuel your Bloodthirsty Aerialist . You also have enough cheap black creatures to ping someone with Ayara, First of Locthwain a few times per turn to help get +1/+1 counters on Knight of the Ebon Legion . Epicure of Blood and Vindictive Vampire might be good to add. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is going to help you power up your vampires and give them lifelink and deathtouch for the turn if they don't have it. Blood Burglar, Savage Gorger, and Dark Remedy would be my first cuts. I'd also see if there are good replacements for Disfigure and Sorin's Thirst.

I'd also might take it in another direction with Smitten Swordmaster and Lucky Clover , but then You'd need to swap most of your vampires for knights.

Of the X creature spells in Modern, Stonecoil Serpent fits this deck's strategy the best since it has relevant abilities and recurs as an artifact. I don't really want to be playing 0 CMC creatures just for death triggers.

There are other/cheaper drain effects, but they all have downsides that make them less relevant in this strategy than Falkenrath Noble (it has > 1 toughness, flying, and drains when any creature dies):

  • As you mentioned, 1 toughness creatures like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat don't work.
  • Vindictive Vampire doesn't have flying and only drains when our creatures die.
  • Cruel Celebrant requires a white splash, only drains when our creatures die, and its mana cost isn't improved with Heartless Summoning . This deck could be modified to be BW or BG, but I refuse to pay ridiculous money for fetch lands, so I stick to mono-colored builds.
  • I'm thinking Bontu the Glorified may be the best option since it drains, provides a sac outlet, and can be a difficult to deal with threat.

I've looked at Fecundity lists, but most of them are GR token aggro lists.
