Description

"Daddy, why did you eat my fries? I bought them, and they were mine. But you ate them, yeah, you ate my fries... And I cried, but you didn't see me cry. Daddy, Do you even love me? Well, I wish you'd show it, 'Cause I wouldn't know it. What kind of dad eats his daughter's fries, And doesn't look her in the eyes? Daddy, there were tears there. If you saw them would you even care?"

WELCOME TO THE FRY BASKET

Let me start off by saying vampires are my favorite tribe and when I decided to pick magic back up during innistrad, I felt right at home. Olivia Voldaren quickly became my favorite card, despite her HUGE lady boner. My first standard deck was vampires so I turned it into an EDH deck when the Innistrad block rotated. Plus I adore a majority of the art on vampires, probably tied with Angels as far as art goes. This deck is pretty simple, try to control the board state as much as I can with kill spells, creature sac and board wipes. Olivia, Mobilized for War (was the older Olivia Voldaren, but I feel the new one fits better with my playstyle) is the star of this deck and I try to keep her on the board as much as I can.

DECKTECH

Nirkana Revenant + Caged Sun + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers = insane amounts of black mana to spend. Spending it on cards like Exsanguinate makes for good win conditions. Exsanguinate being for multiplayer matches of course :)

Is the card not a vampire? GOOD, I let Olivia, Mobilized for War's , Olivia Voldaren's & Mephidross Vampire 's ability can make my creatures into vampires if needed.

Tutors help me get the cards I need so Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Liliana Vess and Rune-Scarred Demon take care of that for me. I use Expedition Map for either Cabal Coffers or Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

REANIMATING ISNT ONLY FOR ZOMBIES so my deck just loves graveyards. Reanimate, Animate Dead, Beacon of Unrest, Living Death, Sheoldred, Whispering One + Entomb. Gets creatures I want from my and my opponent's graveyards. Yawgmoth's Will is also another card that benefits from me having a graveyard.

not blue but want "card draw"?! Necropotence is here to save the day. Just draw your whole deck if you damn well please.

Now if I wanted to be a complete dick I could run the Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension combo but I like to try to keep my friends soo... same goes for Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood combo. I try to keep this deck infinite combo free. Since it's mostly played as a "kitchen table" deck I play casually with friends.

Most of the kill spells and board wipes are pretty standard as far as Rakdos goes.

I prefer Door of Destinies over Coat of Arms mostly because I don't want to help out other tribe decks.

Some card interactions I like:

With the new Olivia, There are some new stuff I can add.

Olivia, Mobilized for War + Falkenrath Gorger Lets me discard a vampire with her ability then play its with the madness cost.

Olivia, Mobilized for War is now basically Fervor for vampires.

Olivia, Mobilized for War with any of my equipment is really nice.

Old Olivia interactions:

Olivia Voldaren + Basilisk Collar, her poke just became ALOT more useful

Olivia Voldaren + Blade of the Bloodchief poke things and she gets bigger, if you know what I mean

Feel free to comment or +1, I'm always open to new suggestions. And remember watch out for Marceline's dad, he might eat you ;) Thanks for stopping by and keep on rockin'

card:Patriarch's Bidding would do really well in here. Its not super expensive to buy either if you cant find someone to trade for it with

August 17, 2012 4:58 p.m.

Ive always liked Falkenrath Noble

September 17, 2012 3:04 p.m.

How about Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank combo? Its even flavorful to the deck!

September 18, 2012 2:28 p.m.

I had that combo in my deck, but I took it out because I mostly play with friends and its a Dick move.

This deck needs more land 5-6 might do it. A good number of your spells are quite mana intensive, also more lands means more times you can ping or steal creatures with olivia.

September 23, 2012 7:50 p.m.

I've considered more land but ot sure what I would take out for them.

Demarge says... #8

it's probably good idea to cut down some from the top of your curve, and/or cards that do underwhelming effects. Also effects that are expensive but don't really go towards winning you the game like Wound Reflection , Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond also fit into this catagory until you get both on the field. All 3 of these will also put a nice target on your head (unless your playgroup is a bunch of idiots/people who like to lose) and unless you're about to win in a couple of turns, multiplayer politics will probably get you eliminated... on another note I wonder if anyone has ever build a w/b deck that will put those to combo enchantments in the graveyard and then use one of the "return all enchantments onto the field" spells, I wonder if they'd need to add blue to maybe mill themselves.

@Demarge I also run Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood and I'll tell you this: It's a backup plan and I have never played one without the other and enough mana to play them. You never play them individually, that gets you too much hate. Bond+Blood with three extra mana for something like Exsanguinate is always my play and that's after the game has dragged past the point of the primary win con of beat down.

BearCounters says... #12

If you're looking to cut lands, you have 7 targeted removal spells, could probably cut it down to four. Dark ritual will rarely alter the game in a significant way (you can cast nirkana revenant turn three, but it gets swords to plowshares'd almost immediately, for instance). You could even replace it with a Phyrexian Tower which synergizes pretty well with your bloodghast. Another cut that you could consider is bonfire of the damned, as it misses fatties more often than not.

December 10, 2012 2:50 p.m.

Thanks for the tips. I forgot about Phyrexian Tower . I had the same feeling about bonfire.

You've got several cheap casting cost instances, why not Isochron Scepter ?

July 10, 2013 7:35 p.m.

i could, thought about it, not sure what i'd drop.

Formortiis says... #18

I need to watch Adventure Time one of these days.

July 12, 2013 11:29 p.m.

its a good show, if you ever got the time give it a watch.

July 13, 2013 3:58 a.m.

Formortiis says... #20

The fact that Jake the Dog is voiced by Bender alone seems like a good reason to watch it.

July 13, 2013 4:06 a.m.

All around a good cast, ice king is voice by the guy who does spongebob. The show has my kind of humor plus i like pendleton ward's work.

+1 for a good deck that made me laugh :Dmind helping me with my EDH deck? Rith's Army (any advice?)

Lhurgyof says... #23

+1 for a cool deck with an awesome name. I would run Necropotence over Underworld Connections . Lethal Vapors can lock down the field after Olivia hits the board.

If you could, please check out my Karador deck: Karador, ETB Chieftain.

Ulturas says... #24

I would probably drop Mephidross Vampire, Conspiracy is cheaper and could be better against board clears. Olivia also offers the exact same thing but easier/cheaper with board clear as well. Phyrexian Arena seems like it would be stronger in this deck especially with the recursion you're running, Necropotence is one of the best card draws for Black but I feel it would screw you over because you can't use your graveyard to its strengths at all if you get board wiped you wouldn't be able to recover very well, makes cards like Reanimate/Animate Dead/Beacon of Unrest/Phyrexian Reclamation/Sheoldred, Whispering One/Entomb/Yawgmoth's Will kinda pointless. I'd also probably put in Mikaeus, the Unhallowed with the amount of recursion you have he also works well with Retribution of the Ancients, Erebos, God of the Dead stops life gain and is another one for card draw too.

January 25, 2015 7:18 a.m.

For 1 more mana I prefer Mephidross Vampire. Plus for its second ability to help make my vamps bigger. worst case scenario I could run Phyrexian Arena AND Necropotence but that seems redundant. Bloodgift Demon was a good re-placer for Phyrexian Arena but I never have issues with or without it. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed probably should be in this but I need to go pick one up. This deck is made with cards I have. Thanks for the suggestions :)

January 25, 2015 7:30 a.m.

Ulturas says... #26

CharismaPotion Np, with Mephidross Vampire most of the time you won't get use out of his secondary ability though with Vampire Nocturnus giving Flying to everything plus with board wipe he's gone for good with Necropotence. Ascendant Evincar/Eldrazi Monument were other ones that came to mind as well. Yea that's fair enough I just generally buy a whole bunch of cards and figure out what I can add and what's worth adding or not haha. I liked the Adventure Time reference too so gave you +1 :).

January 25, 2015 7:38 a.m.

Yeah, that's true, but even having the option to have it work makes me like having Mephidross Vampire in. plus I could use the same argument for Conspiracy since most of the people I play with run a lot of enchantment destruction. So in this case I just prefer having a creature over an enchantment. Ascendant Evincar was defiantly another card I need to pick up. But thanks for the +1 :)

January 25, 2015 7:47 a.m.

Ulturas says... #28

CharismaPotion Yea definitely more befitting in those situations xD. If you were facing a lot of creature destroy would be an argument to have both for those scenarios just in case lol.

January 25, 2015 8:02 a.m.

Robotoken says... #29

Venser's Journal to combo with Necropotence. It would negate the life loss from Necropotence and allow for unlimited hand size.

February 2, 2015 1:35 a.m.

I'm not worried about that too much, plus I have Reliquary Tower in my deck. Thanks for the suggestion though!

Galaxiancam says... #32

Is [Badlands] necessary? It's pretty expensive for a land card.

March 24, 2015 4:17 p.m.

Also a great land card, it isnt necessary, but it's very useful if you have it.

March 24, 2015 11:57 p.m.

Maybe out with Chaos Warp because of the new tucking bs?

March 26, 2015 2:46 p.m.

Lhurgyof says... #35

Yeah, but it hits enchantments.

March 26, 2015 3:13 p.m.

It hits everything, obviously, but with people playing Divining Top, it can sometimes hit really bad things. And what made it so good was tucking.

March 26, 2015 3:19 p.m.

Chaos Warp is worth the risk in my opinion. I'd rather take the risk to remove a threat on the field and risk them getting a different card. plus from my experience it is almost never better than the card they had before.

March 27, 2015 12:31 a.m.

Grantley91 says... #38

What about Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet? He's a fun kill card.

March 27, 2015 7:38 a.m.

I've considered him, but I find for his mana cost other 7+ drops are more efficient than him. I think I'd like him more if he was flying personally.

filoito says... #44

Man, I love MTG, Vampires, Olivia Voldaren and Adventure Time, of course. This is the easiest +1 I've ever given in this site. Great deck and even better description! I have a similar modern deck if you wanna ckeck out: Vampires' Power of Destruction. Cheers!

I am going to build this same deck with maybe one or two modifications but in other then that it looks like a lot of fun to play! Also +1 because ADVENTURE TIME!

March 1, 2016 6:37 a.m.

LPfan2000 says... #46

Since you've got mostly vampires, maybe a Rakish Heir if you've got room? Serves as a cheaper Mephidross Vampire and having that trigger twice might be cool

March 21, 2016 4:09 a.m.

Nice vampire tribal deck CharismaPotion.

You should check out my zombie tribal or my edh stax primer. both have cards that you might want to try out.

Grave Pact or No Mercy are very good with some drain. Since you are reanimating I would suggest one of my all time favorites Kokusho, the Evening Star. What are your thoughts on the new kalitas

March 22, 2016 1:46 a.m.

jonfehl says... #50

Since you have so much reanimation and madness in this deck, have you thought about Insidious Dreams?

November 4, 2016 6:32 p.m.

jonfehl says... #51

Is there a reason you don't run Palace Siege?

Instant upvote for the adventure time reference. I see you are a man of culture as well. I just pulled Olivia Voldaren from a Modern Masters pack and want to build vampire tribal EDH with her. What should I be looking to get? Thanks in advance. Here's some fries.
