Agadeem's Awakening Discussion

Aight so we've got some cuts to make! So I think a good benchmark to shoot for off the bat is 36 lands and 64 non-lands, though with the sheer number of transform lands you have you might be fine at 34 or 35 - I would NOT recommend going that low until you've played a respectable number of games or playtest hands (probably at least 4 games and 30 playtest hands) and you have a solid understanding of how consistently you come in with too few lands.

As far as the cuts, I'd say drop: Rushed Rebirth , Ecological Appreciation , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Silent Sentinel , Resolute Archangel , Aegis of the Gods , Path of Discovery , Shapers' Sanctuary , Springleaf Drum , Perpetual Timepiece , Accomplished Alchemist , Call for Unity OR Collective Blessing (probably the latter), Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant / Rune-Tail's Essence , Elixir of Immortality , Heliod, God of the Sun , Huatli, Radiant Champion . I can give you my rationale one-by-one if you like.

Then add three lands, possibly modal spell-lands like Agadeem's Awakening  Flip. Ideally, more of your lands should be multiple colours, as you have a large colour cost burden in black and white especially (lots of cards that need two or three of the same colour). The cheapest options are the snow taplands, guildgates, refuge lands (give 1 life when they enter the battlefield), and the showlands from Shadows over Innistrad and Strixhaven. There are definitely some mid-range lands that you can pick up for less than $10 that should be a high priority for you: Sunpetal Grove and Godless Shrine to fill out your buddy and shockland sets, the three scrylands a la Temple of Malady , Murmuring Bosk , Canopy Vista , and Scattered Groves . Since your deck doesn't currently have many ways to fetch basic lands, you really shouldn't have many since your colour demands are so high. Also definitely be on the lookout for legendary lands that fit into the deck well! Those will be sweet.

Hi! My advice is replace some of the creatures with cheap or free counter magic. I would defiantly cut Wonder , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Spark Double and Throatseeker the rest is up to you. Don't under estimate free creatures without evasion like Memnite and Phyrexian Walker .

Some disruption spells i would recommend are Commandeer , Chain of Vapor , Flusterstorm . Their expensive so some budget options are Fatal Push , Misdirection , Murderous Cut , Spell Pierce . Also i would recommend some library manipulation like Spy Network , Ponder , Mission Briefing , Lim-Dul's Vault (its good but expensive). Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top are also great top deck manipulation but probably no worth the money.

I recon Access Tunnel , Blinkmoth Nexus , Halimar Depths and Mystic Sanctuary should replace Path of Ancestry , Temple of the False God , Isolated Watchtower , High Market .

Finally i would recommend some better high CMC cards to reveal with Yuriko activation's. Some of the cards i recommended already double as good reveals but you could add: Sea Gate Restoration  Flip, Nexus of Fate , Time Warp . Their not budget friendly but there good. Take out two lands if you use Sea Gate Restoration and Agadeem's Awakening  Flip for obvious reasons.

I hope this helps :D

Thanks for the tips

I already have Legion Lieutenant in the deck. But as far as Mirror Entity I made a rule for myself that all the creatures in my deck have vampire as their creature type. Adaptive Automaton is the only exception cause I think of it as my vampires making it.

I’ll definitely have to test Agadeem's Awakening  Flip vs Haunting Voyage and see how both work in my playgroup.

Thanks again

Hello!

Agadeem's Awakening  Flip would be a great substitute for Haunting Voyage, and it's a land. If you want graveyard recursion, I would suggest much cheaper options such as Phyrexian Reclamation or Underworld Breach

Adaptive Automation does not trigger a vamp token from Edgar when cast, and it does not buff itself. I think Legion Lieutenant would net more value

Thirsting Bloodlord is relatively low value in this deck at 4 mana, I would suggest replacing with Mirror Entity or a turn one vamp like Vampire of the Dire Moon for more reliable early game momentum

Enjoy!

Dope deck!

You might find that replacing Drana's Emissary with Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose will net you a ton more lifegain, and potential win condition. Also, I understand you want to keep your vamps low cost, but you might consider playing Champion of Dusk instead of Painful Truths or Pact of the Serpent. For Two extra mana you get a vampire body and it has the same text as Pact of the Serpent.

Agadeem's Awakening  Flip is a great replacement for a Swamp

Legion's Landing  Flip is insane in Edgar. Vamp n Ramp baby

Culling the Weak can lead to some pretty insane turn two vamp storms

Enjoy

From your current sideboard i would only keep the 3x Feed the Swarm - its a great card for creature AND enchantment matchups.




Seeing that you run Agadeem's Awakening  Flip i would surely play some creature based hate cards.
- 2x Blight Beetle - hates out heliod, humans & hardened scales & decent blicker against green fatties like Tarmogoyf , Elder Gargaroth , Tireless Tracker ... etc.
- 2x Yixlid Jailer - good grave hate
- 2x Plague Engineer - against tribal, tokens (and bloodghast)


For the rest 6x slots i would play:
- 2x Ashiok, Dream Render - good against grave decks,tutor decks (tron to a degree, titan, heliod, STORM ...etc.)
- 2x Bontu's Last Reckoning - fastes boardwipe in the format, you should only need languish in situations where you give up your board for better topdecking - in such situations, the drawback is minimal, while the cmc 3 means you can play it in time (for example even if you fail to hit land drops, or thalia is on the field ...etc.)
- 2x Damping Sphere - decent against storm, tron, izzet blitz, and the now OMNIPRESENT boros blitz.



In your maindeck you can do much better.
Viscera Seer is very underwhelming if you only have bloodghast to go with it - i would repkace them with 1x more fatal push, 1x targeted discard & 1x Vampire of the Dire Moon / Vampire Cutthroat / Shadow Alley Denizen (latter gives evasion).

And for now maindeckable lifegain is king, so contemplate running a number of Feast of Blood or Collective Brutality (i recommend the former, as its harder to partially fizzle with prowess & less punishing when countered)

And sincyou are monoblack you can affor to run decent black utility lands. Ghost Quarter & Field of Ruin is a must in some number. Castle Locthwain is great in topdeck wars.

And since you run fetches, i woul advise getting 1-2 Witch's Cottage for more recursion.




So for sideboard:
- 3x Feed the Swarm
- 2x Blight Beetle
- 2x Yixlid Jailer
- 2x Plague Engineer
- 2x Ashiok, Dream Render
- 2x Damping Sphere
- 2x Bontu's Last Reckoning

Rellos I never like to play tap lands if I can help it but Malakir Rebirth  Flip is one I've run in other decks, might be worth including here too.

I very much like Agadeem's Awakening  Flip that's a great idea. Maybe Symbiosis too but I always thought that was a lot of mana for very little payoff.

Agadeem's Awakening  Flip and Turntimber Symbiosis  Flip feel like they should be in here simple because at worse they are a land. maybe Malakir Rebirth  Flip also to protect Lathriel. Also I LOVE Bolas's Citadel in here!
