New Player: Mono-Black Vampire Help

Deck Help forum

Posted on April 13, 2019, 9:01 p.m. by smurfs1234

I'm a new player with some vampire cards and thinking about buying more. What would be an ideal mono-black vampire deck. Is this more of an aggro or midrange? Vampire

Honestly? You could go aggro or control with this. What's your preferred play style?

Is there a reason why you specifically want mono black? I don’t know too much about vampire tribal but from what I do know Edgar Markov is the best vampire commander.

@Spiderhead Don't really have a reason, just have all mono black vampires :/

@jconeil1988 I initially started with an aggro similar to the one you have on your profile, but I found that after a few turns I would have an empty hand. I decided to try to shift to midrange by adding some more control and draw cards ( Go for the Throat / Victim of Night / Sign in Blood ), and higher mana cost creatures ( Bloodline Keeper  Flip / Vampire Nocturnus / Twilight Prophet and maybe the ones in the sideboard). Is it still too much of an aggro?

I'm more of an aggro player myself, so I don't know if I'll be much help. I do think, if you're keeping Vampire Nocturnus , you wan't something that can make sure you have black on top. Land, even though a swamp, is still considered colorless. Viscera Seer is very good at this allowing you to sacrifice a creature to scry away the land.

You'll also want some hand disruption. Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek are really good at this. Duress is an okay budget option.

Vampire Nighthawk is an amazing defensive card. Don't sleep on it, especially with your lord effects.
