Maybeboard


Description

I like vampires. Update: Changing the deck since RIX Spoilers are coming out. So this deck is a work in progress. All the panels will still have stuff from the original deck until the new version begins to give more of a shape and direction. The original deck will be in the Maybeboard section until the changes are complete.

Basically this deck is built wanting to kill as many creatures as possible. Often that means your own creatures, but that's ok, they are vampires, they'll come back. So you kill a bunch of creatures with Dusk or Yahenni's Expertise and then drop Bloodcrazed Paladin on the mostly empty board as a strong, powerful beater. Then later in the game, you can play cards like Dawn or Bishop of Rebirth's effect to recur some of those creatures again.
Metallic Mimic & Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle serve as lords (hoping that the set gives us another one) pumping and establishing more and more of a board presence. Have them both of the battlefield and you get 2/2 lifelinkers! I'm still holding out hope for another "real" Lord. Metallic Mimic is fine, but it's only is really great with another lord. Since a lot of the vampire's flavor text keep referencing a queen, I'm assuming we have another lord coming. I guess the only question is whether she will be making an appearance this set or next. Regardless, I'll make due what what I have. Update: Next set. HEAVY SIGH
So one of the things I've thought about for this deck is ways to get around the fact that they are mostly 1/1 creatures. Looking a the meager Vampire support I came across Vampire's Zeal & Sheltering Light. Now neither of these cards are great, but I think maybe I could make room for one? Why or why not? Tell me what you think in the comments.
Main issue, the entire deck is pretty much 1/1 creatures. Part of me thinks that this deck is going to be kinda painful to play. But I still wanna play it. So if you can help me think of a different way to kill my opponent's with some combinations of these cards, I'll probaby love you forever. Or just find you and suck your blood or something. I dunno, vampires.

Another problem: Rampaging Ferocidon. This card can flip my entire deck on me if I can't remove it. Fortunately it dies to Dusk, Yahenni's Expertise & a revolted Fatal Push. But I still acknowledge it as a problem.

This deck looks pretty fun, I can't wait to play it, but it's still a work in progress. Hit me with any suggestions or comments you have!
