"♫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?♫"

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 Voldaren is the star of this deck and I try to keep her on the board as much as I can.


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 good 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 abilities 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'
