Viridian Longbow Discussion

The Viridian Longbow is key, it lets you tap the nighthawk for free, then when he kills their creature he untaps. Mega broken. Also, I didn't even know people knew those two cards were an amazing combo

You probably need to add some more 1-drop Vampires to your list to start aggressing early. I've been playing a guy's casual Vampire deck since I first started playing Magic some 6 years ago, and I still have trouble beating it; it's just that powerful.

Viscera Seer is super great at filtering out bad draws, as well as being a sac outlet. Never underestimate sac outlets. Recommend as a 2-of.

Vicious Conquistador is the (almost) strictly better Pulse Tracker, and nothing's about as good as extra noncombat life loss. A playset is ideal.

For 2-drops, I see you have a playset of Gifted Aetherborn, which is top-notch, and I also recommend Kalastria Highborn for eking out the last bits of life from your opponent with suicide attacks. Gatekeeper of Malakir is also a beast; filling your curve and/or providing removal is efficiency at its finest.

Filling out Captivating Vampire to a playset would be the next ideal thing to do. Having all the lords you can always helps.

In terms of removal, Victim of Night technically hits the most creatures, but Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Grasp of Darkness, Dismember, and Disfigure are also all good choices.

Throw in an extra copy or two of Blade of the Bloodchief. Its damn cheap to play and equip, and it gets stupid fast.

If you want cutting recommendations, Bloodbond Vampire isn't fantastic, you're not running boardwipes or discard for Sangromancer, Alms of the Vein doesn't have a madness outlet, Dash Hopes doesn't always work the way you want it to (but keep it in if you want; it's always fun to play), and while Viridian Longbow is cute, it's a bit too expensive to equip, and more often than not, you want to be aggressive with your creatures.

Hopefully this helps!

Viridian Longbow attached to a snake allows you to pick off problematic creatures.

Eldrazi Monument because why not.

Craterhoof Behemoth finishes games.

I really like Viridian Longbow as a one of target to get with Trinket Mage. It can really do some work against decks with one toughness creatures.

Firebones675 somehow i missed that wording, numerous equipment like Viridian Longbow, or Thornbite Staff use that wording, and even Mortarpod must just assumed (probably couldnt be an uncommon if the creature had the trigger) my mistake

your probably testing out a number of the 1x/2x creatures, but i would pick a few creatures to make 3-4x, maybe keep Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile at 2, and cut the rest for greater consistency.

Viridian Longbow would would work very well in this deck.

I been using Eternal Thirst on smaller creatures and then using the Deathtouch + Viridian Longbow combo to make them stronger. Not effective enough?
