Murphy77 Deckling

Started collecting and playing MTG in September 2015. Still very much a nooby. I have a limited number of pre-origons cards and am trying to build a competitive deck/s with cards that I do already have.

You seem to have a large number of expensive (to cast) cards that will tend to clog up your hand early in the game. You seem to be missing a few staples, like Elenda, the Dusk Rose, which really make a vampire token deck. Take a look at Vampire Ramp M, which might give you a few ideas.

I have been watching this deck for a while and have always felt that it needs some minor tweaks to become a really competitive deck. I worry about the costs of Dusk Legion Zealot and Live Fast and about the cost/benefit balance.

Tomb Robber in place of Dusk Legion Zealot would give you an added sac outlet, allow you to explore and run through your deck quicker and doesn't cost you life.

Recover in place of Live Fast allows you to choose a card that you add to your hand (which is often better value). With 4 Fatal Push and 3 Ravenous Chupacabra in your deck, I do, however, still like the idea of Dead Man's Chest in this slot, combining disruption and card steal (which should work against most agro decks).

Maybe Tomb Robber would be better than Deadeye Tracker, which relies on your opponent having cards in the grave.

I actually like Vizier of the Menagerie in the deck - if you have mana spare, you get an extra free chance to draw and play a creature. Granted it works better in a deck with lots of cheap creatures, but I thing that it adds depth to the deck. I would rather cut a high cmc card, or two and try to get swinging a turn, or two earlier.

I considered Ghalta, Primal Hunger - it could work, but this is the only deck that I can think of where Tetzimoc, Primal Death could work. Just mark all your opponent's creatures - then kill them in one foul sweep. I really want to try and win at least 1 game with Tetzimoc, Primal Death. I only have 1 copy at the moment, but might eventually add a second.

OK - I have all the cards. Now I just need to play-test to decide between agro-exert with God-Pharaoh's Exertion, agro-explore with Explore aggressively and agro-enrage with Raptor Forerunner, they all feel good.

I can't help but to think that Throne of the God-Pharaoh needs to be in this deck. I would be tempted to replace Honored Hydra, which really only comes into play late in the game as a win-more card (you should already be in a winning or losing position before you get to play this card). Honored Hydra and Trueheart Twins can, however be cheated out by Champion of Rhonas. I want to try and build a Throne of the God-Pharaoh version of this deck (possibly also trying to accommodate Rishkar, Peema Renegade and Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip without losing the agro-exert feel of the deck)

Thanks for the comment iano9. I had Deadeye Tracker in the slot currently occupied by Ramunap Excavator and found it to be fairly useless in the early game when your opponent had nothing in the graveyard. Later in the game it just seems very fragile and doesn't seem to last too long on the field. Yes, it probably commands a position in the side-board ahead of March of the Drowned, but Kambal, Consul of Allocation is also competing for that spot (against control decks). I need to think this one out a bit more.

I can understand Throne of the God-Pharaoh in an exert deck, or if you have an effect that allows you to tap creatures for mana. I don't understand it in this deck. I would instinctively suggest that you replace it with Settle the Wreckage, but your mana curve is already heavily skewed toward 4-drop cards. Maybe 3 Paladin of Atonement and 1 less Call to the Feast would be a better balance. I would also consider Metallic Mimic in place of Throne of the God-Pharaoh(although it is not a knight)

Yes, I had Yahenni, Undying Partisan in the deck and somehow lost it when I was increasing the creature removal. I agree - Yahenni probably works better than Gonti - change made.

I won't ever have more than 1 artefact on the field, so Underhanded Designs really doesn't work.
