Viscera Seer Discussion

Rurik on Ghave, Guru of +1/+1

A friend of mine plays a Ghave commander deck. Here are some suggestions:

Mycoloth.

Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + creatures with persist such as Kitchen Finks, Woodfall Primus and Puppeteer Clique if you have a sacrifice outlet like Viscera Seer creates infinite effects.

Prismatic Omen + Emeria, The Sky Ruin for which you might need Idyllic Tutor and Sylvan Scrying.

Genesis + Eternal Witness.

Archangel of Thune.

Armorcraft Judge.

Cathars' Crusade.

Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Deathgreeter.

Sigil Captain.

Reveillark + Karmic Guide + Clone Shell + Altar of the Brood + a sacrifice outlet.

Hopefully you found some of these suggestions useful. GLHF.

Twilight Drover goes infinite with Phyrexian Altar and Ashnod's Altar, I think?

Mentor of the Meek is really good.

Viscera Seer is good for deck cycling.

Butcher of Malakir, Dictate of Erebos and Grave Pact are soft locks in this deck.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose MIGHT be a better commander. Whilst she costs more mana, she comes online a bit quicker, potentially.

Karmic Guide, Reveillark and Blasting Station is an instant win. Both creatures are good enough to include on their own because value, but they can also just single-handedly win games. They create sacrifice-recursion loops where you can sacrifice them then one reanimates the other and then you rinse and repeat.

Sun Titan isn't optional. It just wins games.

Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are good token producers. So is Elspeth, Knight-Errant.

Fleshbag Marauder is pretty great. You can just keep playing it and renimating it for some soft locks. Particularly with cards like Sheoldred, Whispering One.

Unburial Rites is great because you cast it twice. So is Lingering Souls.

Buried Alive is a really good tutor-thats-not-a-tutor kind of thing.

Victimize is just value.

Nim Deathmantle protects everything from death.

You can play Smokestack in decks like this if you want to be a dick.

Cathars' Crusade is a great win condition. Combined with like Lingering Souls it's just insane.

Attrition is just borderline unfair.

That's about all I can think of.

Cool deck! I play an Edgar Markov deck myself, it’s probably my main deck, so I’ve got plenty of suggestions but before I get to that I wanted to say that I like this deck.

Firstly, while Door of Destinies can be absolutely amazing in the right circumstances (you get it out early and have plenty of vamps to follow it up with) if you get it any other time it’s just not very good. It needs you to have gas in your hand once it comes down and you never want to draw this late in the game, since it doesn’t have any effect on your boardstate immediately on hitting the field. One potential replacement is Shared Animosity. It costs 1 less to cast and it has an immediate effect, and it is very very strong in this deck. Coat of Arms is also super strong here but that one depends on your meta; if you have lots of other tribal decks around it may not be worth running it, since it’ll help all of them as well. If not, or if you think that it’ll benefit you more than them most of the time, it’s absolutely worth putting in.

A couple other cards I’d say you should drop are Licia, Sanguine Tribune and Mathas, Fiend Seeker. They’re both good cards, but there are much better options for this type of deck. Licia depends too much on lifegain to be consistently effective (which, admittedly, there will be a fair bit of in a vampire tribal deck) and Mathas doesn’t really fit with the aggressive swarm theme of the deck.

A few other vampires I personally dislike are Pawn of Ulamog, Sangromancer, Balustrade Spy, and Bloodhusk Ritualist. Pawn of Ulamog is alright, but there will probably be more tokens than non-tokens and there are just better things to include here. I took much of the lifegain out of my deck (personal preference really, it doesn’t seem to work as well as pure aggro for me) so Sangromancer came out of mine for that reason. Balustrade Spy costs too much for what it does; 4 mana for a 2/3 flyer isn’t great plus it’s ability doesn’t really synergize with the deck as a whole, and there are better inclusions. Bloodhusk Ritualist just doesn’t seem very good to me; sure it’s a decent mana sink late game, but besides that it doesn’t seem to do much. I much prefer Mirror Entity as a mana sink if that’s what the Ritualist is for; it is technically a vampire and it can pump your whole team a ridiculous amount, which is really what the deck wants.

Another thing decks like this want is consistent card draw. You’ve already got Twilight Prophet, which is good, but in my experience you need more than that. My deck historically had problems drawing cards and I was basically playing off the top of my deck, which is far from ideal. I’d recommend you add some more cards like Champion of Dusk, Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence, or Greed. These are very strong and consistent card draw options, and since you’re in vampire tribal and have a basically guaranteed lifegain subtheme it helps mitigate the life loss from these (which is worth paying anyway).

Also, I’m not really sure why Ghostly Prison is in here; it doesn’t synergize at all with the deck and doesn’t make much sense to me.

As for cards to add, there are tons of great options to choose from. Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief are both good; Viscera Seer is one of the bests one drops in this deck by far; Indulgent Aristocrat is another amazing one drop; Legion Lieutenant is a good, cheap vampire lord; Sanctum Seeker basically is your deck in one card, since he hits your opponents super hard every time your army attacks as well as gaining you a whole bunch of life; Stensia Masquerade is a very good anthem-type effect; Terminate, Anguished Unmaking, and Utter End are all amazing spot removal cards; and there are plenty of other great cards I can’t remember right this second.

Sorry about the wall of text, but these are some suggestions for your deck based on my own experience with Edgar Markov. Whether or not you make these changes is up to you of course. Here’s my deck if you’re interested; you may find other things I forgot to mention in there that you may want to put in your deck: Edgar Markov tokens.

No Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, etc? It's rather good synergy for Kresh. Sac outlets>all

Viscera Seer is one card i have to put World Shaper in the graveyard so its very effective.

Hunson_Abadeer on Fun With Lifelink Vamps

Kalastria Highborn works very well with Viscera Seer; also, Bloodghast is great sacrifice target.

Another bonus with Seer is that when/if a creature of yours gets kill spelled then you can sac in response to get a scry.

Cool list!
