Description

Hey, this is my vampire deck. I know its not the best but i have a limit on what everything costs. Was wondering if you could help me fix it up, add stuff and take stuff out. My maybe board is what im considering using to replace some stuff in the deck. Thanks for your help.

Have changed it a lot now. Put in some Gatekeeper of Malakir for filling in the 2 drops, and to get rid of some creatures before I attack. Added 3 Lightning Bolts for more 1 mana drops, considering I had hardly any. With that, I have put in Stromkirk Noble to hopefully get a creature out on turn 1. Please give me any more advice on what i should be doing to this deck to make it better. I like the idea I'm running, so I don't want it changed too much. But I am open to all opinions.Thanks in advance.

You cant use 5 Stensia Bloodhall . only 4 max. But 2 should be fine. Try getting Dragonskull Summit for dual lands.

check out the vampire deck I have on my page. It runs really well and you will be able to get some other ideas for your deck.

Stromkirk Captain is great with Vampire Nighthawk just laugh with first strike, death touch, and flying.

that's what i was going for. give them all first strike and target the player to get +1/+1 on most of my other vampires.

Quag Vampire's aren't standard. Neither is Terminate, Dark Ritual and Sadistic Sacriment.

My deck, deck:leas-friday-night-vampires, is an example vampire deck that is fast and aggressive.

But there are other cheap vampire drops. You want to be running about 8+ 1 drops (a playset of Stromkirk Noble s, 2-4 Vexing Devil s or Diregraf Ghoul and 4 Tragic Slip . 6-8 2 drops. (For example, a 2 Child of Night and 2 Blood Artist or 2 Falkenrath Exterminator , and 2-4 bits of removal like Doom Blade or Go for the Throat . 6 3 drops (Stromkirk Captain is a must, Rakish Heir Markov Blademaster or Vampire Nighthawk are also good.)) Then 2-5 4 drops ((Falkenrath Aristocrat , Olivia and Vampire Nocturnus but only Nocturnus if you run mostly to mono black.

thanks for the feedback. i took out a few things like Sadistic Sacrament and put in Stromkirk Noble , which i think will help me a lot with the one mana drop. also i put in Lightning Bolt as a quick way of dealing damage.

Bloodline Keeper  Flip ? It's a great card.

Bloodline keeper is a very nice card, but its a bit pricey for me.

+1 for building strong on a budget!

Are you trying to keep this type 2? I ran blue/red proliferate vampires for a while, and Volt Charge is your best friend. Killing chump blockers and pumping your vamps with existing 1/1 counters at instant speed is fun.

Falkenrath Marauders is an amazing later game vampire, and still comes fast and hits hard. Sorin Markov might not be too expensive as well.

Thanks Stalin. It was actually tough trying to find cards that matched my budget, but I think I got it in the end. Those are great cards that could go really well, especially the proliferate. Thanks for your advice, and I'm gonna see how it works out with this, then probably add in Volt Charge s, because it seems like a great way to really give my vamps that extra boost.

I run a vampire deck too. Here is something you can try add in Bloodthrone Vampire they are cheap with Essence Harvest which is cheap to. This is a good combo and it it standard. And I would add Bloodline Keeper and maybe Falkenrath Exterminator he is cheap

October 3, 2012 9:07 a.m.

Anytime! Building on a budget is tough, I know how it goes. He doesn't have the vampire tribal synergy, but Stormblood Berserker Is a fantastic proliferate target, who is also tough to block. Shrine of Burning Rage is amazing, and card:Tezzeret's Gambit might possibly be worth running.
