Theater of Horrors is a card I've thought a lot on, I don't think it fits this deck but it seems powerful, you could try the new Castle Locthwain which seems pretty potent. If you're also worried about winning you could try the one and done effect of Sign in Blood . Depending on how easily you become hellbent Asylum Visitor has the potential to draw two cards per round of the table plus the one card per turn. I hope this has helped but most card draw in are going to deal damage to you.

SP3CTR3_chelts Oh, I see. Thank you! Since my local meta is either burn (which I consider a form of control, as they blow up your threats much as a counter spell counters them) or vanilla control I usually run Asylum Visitor .

What about sideboarding out removal for ramp? e.g. Remove the pushes and paths for 4x Dusk Legion Zealot mainboard?

SP3CTR3_chelts Would it be better to have 2x Asylum Visitor s and 4x Dusk Legion Zealot s for immediate card draw?

For budget rack, Delirium Skeins is great, as is card draw like Sign in Blood . Getting into topdeck mode then winning there offers you a lot. Also, Davriel is better than a lot of other options- run four, he's a clock and discard two. Its really good.

Remember your sideboard- planning those cards lets you figure out where you are packing all your graveyard hate/combo hate/tron hate etc, leading to a much more complete plan. A transformative sideboard that becomes Blood Scrivener / Asylum Visitor / Liliana's Reaver / Abyssal Nocturnus creature aggro also informs the state of the mainboard, for example.

On the note of lands, I've had success with Sea Gate Wreckage . The colourless requirement does require working around, but it can be good.

Finally, for the sake of fun, Waste Not . Its great.

good points. thanks for linking the new cards. i dont remember seeing them on cardkingdom. the knight squeezes in just under the budget, and i added some spot removal. I am not sold on the removal spells, but it does seem silly not to have some in a black deck. Asylum Visitor was on my mind. I thought i would rather have the immediate draw from Dusk Legion Zealot , but multiple possible draws is better, considering draw is most important on an empty hand anyway. It is also 3/1 with madness, obviously. I removed the Graveshifter so there will not be anything in the way. thanks again

Vampires can actually be quite competitive, especially with the printing of Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord . But you are right, it won't be cheap to build the best version of the deck.

You could play some Viscera Seer in the deck. It gives you late game reach together with Kalastria Highborn . The ability to instantly grow your entire team with Cordial Vampire is also not bad. If nothing else, he allows you to at least get a scry off opponent's removal, and switch off Path to Exile so you can get your creatures back from the graveyard. Seer is often used with Bloodghast to great effect in typical Vampires builds.

Knight of the Ebon Legion is a great addition to the archetype from the latest set as well. Other cards you can consider are Stromkirk Condemned and Asylum Visitor . They work well together. Visitor has 3 power and represents card advantage, which is always useful.

Kogarashi on What is a Madness cost ...

2 months ago

As a note, not that it applies to Anje Falkenrath but it could apply with other cards: a card could have a madness cost equal to its mana cost. There is nothing that says it can't. Falkenrath Gorger gives your Vampire creature cards madness, equal to their mana cost. There are also cards that have a madness cost equal to their mana cost, such as Asylum Visitor and Obsessive Search .

It's important to note that a card that grants an alternative cost or similar ability such as madness, flashback, scavenge, etc. will actually tell you what that cost is.

Probably some of your creatures that either don’t do much or cost too much for what they do. My suggestions are Asylum Visitor , Blood Baron of Vizkopa , and Bishop's Soldier
