Vona, Butcher of Magan Discussion

Uragbonebreaker on w/b Vampire Horses revision

Vayephenom you wont be able to make a lot of horses with it but you will be able to kill you opponents with the vampires you have, the side board is wher i put Vona, Butcher of Magan who is a fantastic card that takes the mana curve more seriously if SOI was still standard Odric, Lunarch Marshal would be in the deck in the main board.

Mono-black IS good for vampires to be sure, but since Edgar Markov is a thing, going multicolor wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. Anowon, the Ruin Sage is a strong commander to be sure, but Ed would give you more colors and more options.

Even Just splashing some red and going with Olivia Voldaren or Olivia, Mobilized for War wouldn't be a terrible idea, as it opens up the door for damage amp cards like Gratuitous Violence or Curse of Bloodletting, not mention plenty of vamps that put +1/+1's on themselves.

Splashing some white and going with Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter or Vona, Butcher of Magan would allow for some more life based cards like Campaign of Vengeance or Sorin, Solemn Visitor. Plus, if I recall correctly, B/W vamp cards have a lot token generation.

This may be a lot to take in at once and if it is, I'm sorry. Don't get me wrong, what you have here is really good as far as I can tell. Just be aware of your options if you weren't already.

I could see something like Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet to support a possible 2/1 split of Blood Baron of Vizkopa and Vona, Butcher of Magan. Maybe? I dont know. Im not sure I have enough confidence in any of the white vampires but it is something to be explored. All that lifelink can give you a little more room in playing cards like Sign in Blood, Thoughtseize, Dismember, and Anguished Unmaking.

Alright, let's see... there's a number of ways you can go from here...

Entity's an amusing addition and Gleam is cute. If you're planning on keeping Campaign in your deck, then Sanctum Seeker's a good place to start. Vona, Butcher of Magan is another girl to take a look at. =3

Seeing as how you have Pact and Butch, I'd also recommend Dictate of Erebos as an additional backup. Condemn is a nice second swords that everyone seems to ignore, much to my chagrin. It's cheaper than Path, money-wise, though, and doesn't run the risk of your opponent being able to cast something bigger and scarier next turn. A bit of an unsung hero, that one, lol.

Another card that is highly sought after in decks like this is Anointed Procession. as is Bloodline Keeper. A few sweepers and ways to get your critters back would also be strongly advised.

Just tossing ya food for thought, though. :) If you clarify which direction you wanna go in, I'll see what kinda tips I can give ya. =3

@HeavyR and @munky702 - Thank you very much for your comments, I really appreciate it.

I've decided to completely remove Vanquisher's Banner. Would you suggest replacing it with the token creation cards like Call to the Feast and Queen's Commission, or placing those in the sideboard in case of encountering removal?

I think keeping one Bishop of the Bloodstained and one Bishop of Rebirth may help me get out of tight situations. What are your thoughts on Vona, Butcher of Magan?

So this is how I made the deck without Chandra. I would just list the ones that are different in your current build:

2x Vona, Butcher of Magan

1x Noxious Gearhulk

3x Painful Lesson

2x Fumigate

2x Settle the Wreckage

3x Gonti's Machinations

1x Arguel's Blood Fast

1x Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip

what do you think on those cards?

Fair enough, that's probably sufficient. I had Vona, Butcher of Magan on the mind for other reasons, and figured I'd include it on my little list.

Fun deck, delightfully evil!

I noticed your deck had an overarching lawful-evil theme going for it, so you may have considered the following cards already. That said, here would be my suggestions:

  • Felidar Sovereign is a pretty solid card in a white/black lifegain deck, particularly in commander. Susceptible to creature removal, but might still be worth playtesting.

  • Serra Ascendant will often be a 6/6 with lifelink for . A very good bargain.

  • Crested Sunmare. Considering you are gaining life pretty frequently, you can spawn a large number of 5/5 indestructible horses.

  • Vona, Butcher of Magan thematically fits with your deck. 7 life is pretty steep, but non-land permanent removal is a pretty powerful tool, and you have significant lifegain potential to offset this payment.
