TheFateless on Cleanse the Bloodlines

Josh_Estrella Thanks for the response! :D Also thank you, this is my first EDH deck I've ever made, and everyone here is being incredibly helpful :) I actually just got some of my cards in the mail today. I added in my Viscera Seer, Tainted Field, Tainted Peak, Gifted Aetherborn, Vault of the Archangel, Isolated Chapel, Bishop of Rebirth, Stromkirk Noble, and my Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I still need all 4 tutors (which is going to murder my wallet) Necropotence, Shared Animosity, and a couple of others. I'll update my list tomorrow morning, it's pretty late right now. Anyway, I'll look into Toxic Deluge since I haven't gotten a Damnation yet. I was looking into Bloodghast, but I wasn't quite sure on it since I hadn't seen anyone mention it until now. Also, I already have a Necropolis Regent in there :) I had a Mephidross Vampire, but I opted for the Necropolis Regent instead. I do see what you are saying about the Butcher of Malakir though, 7 cmc for a 5/4 even though he does fly... I think something better can go there. Some stuff I have on hand right now is Vampire Cutthroat, Pulse Tracker, Tithe Drinker (not really a fan), Voldaren Pariah  Flip, and Olivia Voldaren just to name a few off the top of my head. I was thinking maybe one of the 1 drops? (kinda leaning towards Vampire Cutthroat maybe) I'm all ears for suggestions though. Anyway, I'm kinda worried that my list a little bit light on the vampires compared to what I hear you guys say you have. I think Frank_Glascock said he has 33 creatures 30 being vampires if I remember right... Oh, lastly have you guys considered a Vanquisher's Banner? I thought that might be an ok card draw tool... You guys are the experts though

Dark Impostor, Necropolis Regent, Vampire Lacerator and Stromkirk Noble are possible replacements for Voldaren Pariah  Flip. I counted today and I have 33 creatures, which include 30 that trigger Markov's eminence ability and 15 that cost two or less mana.

Before you decide, consider that Sorin, Solemn Visitor is the only planeswalker I am playing.

Frank_Glascock If its between Vampire Nocturnus and Voldaren Pariah  Flip, I would cut Voldaren Pariah  Flip. Nocturnus is mildly risky, but when he does get the check and buffs your board it is so much better than Pariah could be imo.

Downside of Vampire Nocturnus? Might not go off some turns. Down some of Voldaren Pariah  Flip? By killing three of your vamps, it actively works against your goal. For me at least, with cards like Sanctum Seeker and Shared Animosity I want to have as many vamps as possible, even if they are just 1/1s.

How has Vampire Nocturnus been performing? Has Voldaren Pariah  Flip ever been tested? Those are two higher cost creatures that may be replaced. I play 37 black cards other than Vampire Nocturnus.

Bloodline Necromancer was cut to test New Blood. If testing goes poor, Dark Impostor may slide into this spot or another one or two drop vampire. Any thoughts on any of these cards?

Ok, I think New Blood for Pawn of Ulamog is an easy switch.

Another local player has extolled the virtues of Dark Impostor. I could cut one of two higher cost vampires. My average mana cost per card is at 2.5 and there are 37 black cards in the deck other than Vampire Nocturnus along with nine fetchlands. Is he worth running?

Or would you cut Voldaren Pariah  Flip? She in theory is one sided removal. Losing three vampire tokens undercuts the going wide strategy of the deck. I cut all the aristocrat cards in the deck. Like your deck there are cards that depend more on the quantity of creatures and not the quality. Shared Animosity, Dark Prophecy, Sanctum Seeker, Coat of Arms and Mirror Entity are some examples. Is she the better cut?

Frank_Glascock Awesome, both Cover of Darkness and Bloodghast are fantastic in this deck.

In terms of board wipe protections - Eldrazi Monument is very close to being included in my deck. I've been looking into it for awhile and I may just pick up a copy and see how it does. The evasion it gives and protection is perfect.

Phyrexian Reclamation is going in. Not sure what it is replacing yet, but I do need it. I was neutral on the card at first but after the last two weeks of more play-testing I realized it should be an auto-include. Luckily, my deck has been going off in every game I've played and my board state quickly gets out of control. Phyrexian Reclamation makes sure I can come back to that state if I lose it - and with low CMC vamps it is worth it.

For this version of the deck in particular I don't find that Sangromancer or Pawn of Ulamog are worth it. I would consider dropping a two CMC vamp for Bloodcrazed Paladin and Dark Prophecy & Scapegoat are both solid cards that could be considered in the future.

I would definitely cut Bloodline Necromancer. Sweet that it enters the battlefield but 5 CMC is way to high for a creature in this deck that doesn't anthem your whole board. Plus, with mostly low CMC vamps that is not worth it.

Voldaren Pariah  Flip is fine, but again, for that CMC, I need the creature to be a type of lord. Or have an effect like Malakir Bloodwitch which is a win-con in itself.

Love Vampire Nocturnus, but I think he is too risky in mardu. That is your call though, depending on your deck. He could be worth it.

So far, I havent used Reconnaissance to its full potential, but I'm confident it will be strong. Lately I've been winning my pods with Cover of Darkness combined with Shared Animosity. Together, I take out one or even two opponents in one turn.
