Black Market


Whenever a creature dies, put a charge counter on Black Market. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens enter the graveyard before they cease to exist.)

At the beginning of your precombat main phase, add for each charge counter on Black Market.

Everything seems to fit thematically and mechanically, so which cards are pulling a little less weight or have enough redundancy? My thoughts are Regal Bloodlord (lots of token producers, and this looks like the most restrictive trigger, 5-mana 2/4 isn't great), Black Sun's Twilight (good 2-for-1, but less impactful at lower costs and you have several other recursion and reanimator cards), Utter End (versatile but mana-heavy), maybe Black Market (do you need piles of during your main phase?), maybe Debt to the Deathless (how big does it get?), and something else that just does a little bit less than everything else. Those are my picks for cuts, but live testing is the best way to know for sure.

Cool deck! I think Blade of the Bloodchief goes amazing with this commander, and edict effects like Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos do wonders do keep opponents' boards clear for your commander go swing through.

Black Market nets you a ton of mana over a couple turns, and Greed is excellent card draw for black. Vampiric Rites would also work great and gives u a (kinda) free sac outlet.

overall, really neat deck, kinda wanna build vampires again now 'u'

EchoSpice good catch! That was actually just supposed to be a basic swamp. Thank you for pointing that out!! So, I've used Black Market in the past and have found it not to my liking. It's 5 mana and doesn't actually do anything once it hits the board. It needs creatures on board, and is then operating under the assumption that it will last an entire turn around the table before it even starts to generate any value. Not my bag, but I do appreciate the suggestion!!

I've run decks like this before (albeit with green as well), they can sometimes get pretty tough to edit or improve once you make your initial roster. I can't help you choose what to swap in/out or with what, especially since this isn't a color combo I'm 100% familiar running, but I have some recommendations to expand your maybeboard...

Overall, Daxos the Returned would be a good way to take additional advantage of and further feed your experience counters, though I'm unsure if it fits the deck strategy itself 1:1.

There are any number of cards that can take advantage of a sacrifice engine, some mainstays in decks I made a while back (and since scrapped) would be Smothering Abomination, Sifter of Skulls, Blood Artist, and Zulaport Cutthroat, though countless more exist for sure, and these are all single cards.

I also would point you towards "Emerge" cards (such as Distended Mindbender), co-opting your opponent to sacrifice things as well (such as with Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Rankle's Prank, etc), and even some stat balloons like Elenda, the Dusk Rose (or DIY a stat balloon with Sadistic Glee).

Personally, some good supporting cards might be Shadows of the Past, Black Market, Moonlit Wake, and Inheritance, though these are just some examples of directions you could go in.

Lastly, I encourage you to take a look at some of the more recent sets in general, especially Wild of Eldraine's "Bargain" mechanic. It might have a good amount of synergy here.
