Scytec Bloodlord of Innistrad

Hey, my name is Jacob. I recently took a few year hiatus from MtG for personal reasons. I am currently trying to catch back up though, I love the puzzles this game presents. I am predominantly an EDH player. I enjoy helping people deck tech. I am definitely a fan of black, whenever I plan a new build, it virtually always starts as B/x. Sometimes I branch out, but not very often...and I can not play Izzet...just can't stand the playstyle. My favorite creature of all time is Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, this is the first legendary vampire I owned, and my first introduction to vampires. I have made 3 different vampire decks, 2 for real, 1 online.

Vish Kal's Vampire Legion

Casual Scytec


is my first vampire deck. It isn't designed to be consistent, or devastating. It is designed for fun. So feel free to offer advice, but only for fun, nothing about making it more consistent.

This is my current modern deck:

Hey! LISTEN!! (Please Help) :p

Modern Scytec


I love this deck, and am currently trying to improve the consistency. I will gladly take suggestions on it as well.

My favorite EDH deck, and my best to date is

Night-Clad Terrors

Commander / EDH Scytec


. Of course, any and all suggestions are welcome. This is one of my favorite decks to play and I'd love to make it as strong as possible. I recently acquired some powerful cards that will make the list, just need to break it down and get it modified.

Lastly, 2 quirky things:

1) I collect Swamp F

2) My favorite non-creature card of all time is Havoc Festival. Not only is the art AMAZING, the abilities of the card are insanely hilarious. Haha. If you can't tell I'm pretty laid back, for questions, tag my name in your thread or deck, or pop by my wall and say "Hey, check this shizz out: (insert deck link here)." Always here to discuss whatever as well, philosophy, work, guns, life, video games, etc. Really anything at all. Just let me know if you need a hand.

Scytec Was browsing SynergyBuild's profile and saw you asking about ideas for Bant enchantment decks.

I made a Bant Enchantment Deck helmed by Derevi back in 2017 and have been enjoying how the deck runs so far. Am still tweaking it as new cards are released, here's the decklist in the spirit of sharing. Suggestions and feedback are welcomed too!

Yeah I know about the karametra GW enchantress build, I just won FNM pods with a semi-competitive Selvala, Explorer Returned varient at my LGS.

If you are running blue, Copy Enchantment, Rhystic Study, Estrid's Invocation, Enchanted Evening+Aura Thief, cantrips, and counterspells, along with some good removal like Chain of Vapor!

Hey, Scytec:

It's shocking I had a supporter for my cause for Boros in cEDH. But even though I learned a lesson at first; I just need your help on something: my Gisela deck has suggested 4 cards to cut for the following

Personal Sanctuary (Not even Mana Crypt can phase me.)

Manabarbs (Deals damage just by tapping a land when Rocks, much less Dorks aren't enough.)

Sulfuric Vortex (Locks down Lifegain, as if it matters; but the tax is pointless with Personal Sanctuary.)

War's Toll (Mixed with Manabarbs can dish out hell, add Gisela herself, it will be crippling...)

What do you think are good for cuts? Thanks again for the help man. I'll see what I can do after this... ^-^

Hey man, not sure if you're interested, but I built a Mayael the Anima deck I think you may like. With a few substitutions I think it's pretty budget too. I haven't added it yet, but I will soon. Would you like me to tag you in it? Also, you may look into Nekusar, the Mindrazer if you like punishing your opponents. The whole deck is basically just answers, and forcing your opponents to draw tons of cards which makes them lose life through Nekusar himself and Psychosis Crawler. There are a few more cards that do the same thing as well.

Looks ok, couldn't tell you much about standard though, how does it play? That's what really matters.

Hey man, are you familiar with the EDH build enchantress that's currently helmed by Karametra, God of Harvests? I am looking to build an Estrid, the Masked version of it, and I was wondering what cards in the color blue other than Mystic Remora and Cyclonic Rift you'd recommend. Those are staples, and an obvious inclusion, but blue enchantments is not something I am intimately familiar with. If you have the time I'd appreciate some suggestions, if not, no worries. :p

Hey man, how's it going? Still rocking those FNM's? :p I love Triplets, but he's right, it is another douchey deck people won't appreciate playing consistently. Merieke is another option, especially in conjunction with tap and untap effects, but you run into the same issue. Honestly if you want to go artifacts, I'm a big fan of Sydri, Galvanic Genius. Her plus Aetherflux Reservoir with more than 50 life just wins the game. I've always been fascinated with Ertai, the Corrupted as well.

As for staples, besides the typical Cyclonic Rift, Sol Ring, Solemn Simulacrum, Sensei's Divining Top, and Command Tower I'd have to know what deck and strategy you intend to employ. :p Very few cards are universal to all strategies.

About the best removal package I've found is your sac creatures. You can recur Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, and Slum Reaper to keep most people board states clean. Those trying to go wide you already have covered with Massacre Wurm. To be honest, I found the token package a little win-more, I ended up dropping Mazirek, Kraul Death Priest, Mycoloth, and many more. I don't use the Scions either. I do use Altar of Dementia as it is a free sac outlet, and allows me to mill myself or use it as an alternate win con later with either Nighthowler or Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. You may also consider Greater Good as it allows you to draw and pitch what you don't need or specifically want in the graveyard. Another thing I highly recommend that you don't see very often is Void Winnower it turns off on average half of people's decks, and a lot of times more, my meta in particular is full of powerhouse 3 drops. Hornet Queen actually seems great here though, how is it running for you? I have a nest laying around, but I've never considered picking up the Queen.

Unfortunately piloting Meren is a dangerous game as people are familiar with her as an absolute powerhouse. Haha. A decent Meren deck will destroy many other GOOD decks. The key is to know your group and constantly update your list to fair well in your meta. My meta doesn't run much graveyard hate as I play the only graveyard deck, so I'm not familiar with working around it. Perhaps run a few shuffle effects that allow you to place your graveyard back in your library as opposed to being exiled? You'd have to re-mill everything, but at least you wouldn't lose it.

No love for Atraxa, Praetors' Voice? I've had great luck with

Hello! Always glad to see another Meren pilot. If you've played thus deck many times I'm sure you've noticed some recurring issues. Would you mind sharing them so that I may give better suggestions? Are you always emptying your hand, not hitting your lands or not able to play your things fast enough, unable to interact with your opponents efficiently in the late game when people start to "go off", things like this?

Said on Kitchen Catch-All!...


It isn't even in a deck yet. Haha. It doesn't slot into any of my constructed decks. However, I am thinking about building Tasigur Control/'ll fit straight in there. I decided not to take Meren the combo route, I'm just going to maintain my value plan. Ill go combo with Tasigur as that gives me a better color scheme anyway. :p

Vela the Night-Clad is good, I absolutely adore Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and she isn't absolutely necessary, though she is super powerful. Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Mayael the Anima is slap full of ramp allowing you to hardcast as well, I'll throw in another vote for Edgar Markov because he is just SICK, last one I'll throw out is Karametra, God of Harvests...just look up her Enchantress list. It's excellent.

I've also gotten 6 planeswalkers and a Mana Drain F in the last month and a half since I started playing again...I've basically just had god pulls quite a bit. My M19 prerelease pack I got Death Baron Promo, Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants.

Today or in total? I opened 6 today, I think I've opened 30 in total? Land Tax F, Sea of Clouds F, Brightling, and Doubling Season are the most notable. Also got a few Mind's Eye, a couple of the commander lands, Magus of the Candelabra F, Diabolic Intent, Greater Good, Vigor F, and Archfiend of Despair.

Finally pulled a Doubling Season from battle bond, that set was phenomenal and I've had great pulls from it. So it slotted straight in over Cauldron of Souls. I feel like this deck is getting stronger all the time.
