Arid Mesa Discussion

for you´re manabase I would put more Flooded Strand ´s and Windswept Heath ´s, the reason is that fetches lower you´re overall libary cards so you´re chances for getting better cards are much higher if you fetch ech turn, obviously Arid Mesa ´s are better, but I think you excluded them for beeing to pricey.

I'm a big fan of Realm Seekers in Windgrace, specifically because its land tutor isn't just for basics.

Thank you for those options; I keep forgetting just how diverse you can get with Vampire strategies.
Try as I may I keep wanting to go back to Madness; I love the mechanic and people aren't usually expecting it. Plus, it's a built in defense against 8-Rack, aggressive card draws (I won a round in Legacy against a Howling Mine because of Madness) and other disruption.
Could the following list work?
2x Arid Mesa
2x Blood Crypt
4x Bloodghast (playing for 0cmc as discard)
2x Incorrigible Youths (playing for 3cmc madness)
I will work on the sideboard after I've nailed down the main board, which is hard because Vampires don't like being nailed to anything.

"Just like with all other burn decks, its tends to be fast enough that it doesn't matter against most decks, and against fast decks, like phoenix - which want to go through a lot of spells early game, it can be absurdly strong."
- Xica is absolutely correct.
Hey. Wooded Foothills is the slightly budget alternative to Arid Mesa . The point is that instead of 7+ fetchlands, we only play 6x to deck-slim, for increasing our probability of drawing into damage spells, rather then lands. I hope this answers your question. I will be changing the deck a tad.

What's the point of cards like Arid Mesa if you have no plains? wouldn't you just use a regular mountain?

hungry000 hey thanks for the comment!
Chalice of the Void in my personal opinion is slightly overrated and is amazing in decks like "death & taxes" but I've found in my local meta and in general isn't quite as effective whereas Surgical Extraction blows decks out of the water as early as my turn 0 while my opponent goes first and discards an Arclight Phoenix or tries for a dredge combo. I also use this deck for casual matches against legacy decks or just casual decks and I tend to get better use from the Surgical Extraction . I still sideboarded Chalice of the Void , but I don't think I would run them mainboard just from experience. I'll definitely consider the Simian Spirit Guide however as a means to a turn 2 land destruction other than Boom / Bust or a turn 2 Trinisphere (much more effective and widely annoying when you are limiting their lands than Chalice of the Void in my personal opinion). If I ever bump into some foil fetchlands for trade I'll pick them up. I'll add a couple into this even though I don't have them just to show best form.
