Baron Sengir Discussion

Kogarashi on Would primal vigor affect infect ...

5 months ago

Primal Vigor only doubles tokens (A marker used to represent any permanent that isn’t represented by a card. See rule 110.5.) and +1/+1 counters. Any other type of counter is ignored by Primal Vigor , including both kinds of counters from infect (which are not tokens).

Infect does damage to creatures in the form of -1/-1 counters, and to players in the form of poison counters. Neither of these are +1/+1 counters.

Other counters that may seem like they should be doubled but aren't:

  • The +2/+2 counters from Baron Sengir and several other cards. These are not +1/+1 counters, and are not doubled.

  • The +1/+2 counters from Armor Thrull . Again, not +1/+1 counters.

One of the State-based Actions that are routinely checked and performed is that if a creature has both +1/+1 counters and -1/-1 counters an equal number of each are removed until only one type remains. Keep in mind again that counters are only placed if the effect specifies counters, and that other types of P/T changing counters (usually from older cards) are not included in this.

Blur of Blades and Battlegrowth WILL remove each other's counters.

Afflict WILL NOT remove the counter from Battlegrowth .

The counters from two Blur of Blades and the counter that Baron Sengir gives himself WILL NOT remove each other.

I'm hoping that one of the antagonists is Baron Sengir. The last we saw him it appeared his new army was ready to venture through the dwarven gate on ulgrotha. Its never been revealed where the gate leads, though the baron has sent minions through the gate before and none have returned. This could account for the fact that we have see Sengir Vampire on dominaria before when they shouldn't really be there.

Without going into detail we are currently about 60 or so years in the timeline AFTER leshrac saw Ihsan's Shade readying a vampire army to cross the gate. Which would mean, if the gate did in fact lead to dominaria, the Baron could have established a foothold here and become a player in whatever is going on. It would also better explain Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood being in the set.

Not to mention there would be a vampire army to fight Bolas's zombie army and how awesome is that!

I'm not the biggest fan of Baron Sengir. For example, look at EDHREC's page on him: . Only 169 decks use him, and EDHREC's website looks at 200,000+ decks! In contrast, Sol Ring is used in 229,537 decks that EDHREC analyzes.

MizzMizz, glad you were finally able to upload your deck! Looks pretty good! Here are some cards you may not have considered yet!?

Tribal synergies

Patriarch's Bidding (helps against a lot of board wipes, Athreos, God of Passage and is also very good for that)

Baron Sengir

Vanquisher's Banner

Feast of Blood

Coat of Arms

Cavern of Souls

Having a sac outlet like Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Ashnod's Altar or Falkenrath Aristocrat can be great with other Blood Artist effects if you wanted to also add Falkenrath Noble and Zulaport Cutthroat as well. Its also very good with cards like Insurrection.

You should check out any of the new cards from Ixalan too and keep an eye out for Rivals for more vampires. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Sanctum Seeker, and Legion's Landing  Flip are all great new additions

OK, here's another quick run through. Consider the following changes:
These cards aren't that good, but I do see why they are in the deck. Except Spellbook, that needs to come out right now. Skeletal Scrying - do I need to exile my graveyard?, I would rather have some way to get them back via a reanimate effect or a shuffle effect. The card draw is nice, but there are better options. Final Reward - Five mana to exile one creature. Just doesn't seem as efficient as this deck wants to be. Spellbook - This is crap. Just take it out. Outpost Siege - Once again, there are better options.

These cards are kinda good, kinda bad, not sure if they should stay or go. Ambition's Cost - I don't mind trading life for card draw, but is this a keeper or should it get swapped for something else. Ashes to Ashes - This card is a great two-for-one but the five life might be a problem in some games. Disrupt Decorum - really not sure about this one. With a couple of other changes, this one might stay in. I like the tokens but it is a worthless draw after a Wrath of God. I know Baron Sengir and Irini Sengir are 'classic' Magic vampires, but they really aren't that good. I think they were just thrown in to the precon for flavor.

Here's the cards I think you should find as soon as possible. Blood Artist, Blood Seeker, Bloodline Keeper  Flip (kinda expensive), Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Cliffhaven Vampire, Kalastria Highborn, Markov Blademaster, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Soul Collector, Vein Drinker, Viscera Seer are all good creatures. Vampiric Fury and Urge to Feed look like useful pump spells. Stensia Banquet and Stensia Masquerade also look pretty good. Anguished Unmaking looks like a good replacement for Final Reward. Yes there is a 3 point life loss, but it hits more targets. Oh, and let's not forget the almost mandatory Elixir of Immortality. Loxodon Warhammer or a Basilisk Collar would be great ways to get some life back. Devil's Play could be useful. Oversold Cemetery and Grave Pact are really useful and fit the theme. I know Geth, Lord of the Vault isn't a vampire, but the reanimation effect is nice.

I would defintely replace the Spellbook with Viscera Seer as soon as possible. Let me know what you think.
