Bleak Coven Vampires Discussion

Egrystal the reason for those two in the main is because they can be fetched with Trinket Mage in the relevant matchups or sacced for cards when they're useless

Origin Spellbomb being edict fodder is a neat idea that I'll look into, but pyrite spellbombs can just be found with trinket mage and ressurected with most of the creatures.

Drafna's Restoration empties my yard, which I don't want to do. Bleak Coven Vampires are only a one-shot effect, and Disciple of the Vault only hits for 1 and on death, while the plan is to drain for 4-6 on the turn it comes down and make it a must-kill threat while incidentally draining with Sanctum Gargoyle or Etherium Sculptor

Snogglesworth Maybe a sacrifice Artifact themed deck with...

Ichor Wellspring, Defiant Salvager, Disciple of the Vault, Costly Plunder

or maybe "play many Artifacts" and use...

Golem Foundry, Bleak Coven Vampires Glaze Fiend

maybe this could work with Cabal Paladin

Enral on Pauper? Pauper? i love it!

Have been brewing a mardu metalcraft deck abusing Costly Plunder andIchor Wellspring to give an Ancestral Recall effect. Bleak Coven Vampires is a great finisher and provides late game inevitability. If you like boros kitties this uses a very similar shell.

I'd probably add a couple Angelic Purge for some super strong, versatile removal. Aether Spellbomb is also an all-star that can be followed up with a counterspell, get an extra Bleak Coven Vampires trigger, or make infinite blocks with Leonin Squire.

You also might consider a singleton Wail of the Nim in the sideboard to deal with creature swarms.

The only problem I have with this deck is that I feel like Gurmag Angler is useless here and I feel like there should be something more impactful than Bleak Coven Vampires that could fill that slot. Otherwise, this looks like and awesome deck and the include of black allows for such awesome things as Terminate. Keep up the good work.

A bit of both. I have a couple of options in my affinity decks. I run Grixis for Bleak Coven Vampires, or white for Auriok Sunchaser and Ardent Recruit. If you want to break away from the mold, Kaladesh has some great options - Reckless Fireweaver, Salivating Gremlins and Cogworker's Puzzleknot for triggering all of those. They work great with Atog too.

The reason to go grixis is by far Bleak Coven Vampires which act as even more reach, attached to a body.

With Multiple 4 and 5 mana cards, how do you do with only 20 lands, most of which are cipt? With only 1 prism as fixing, you will struggle to have the right colors.
This deck has very little late game and has space weird additions like Delver and Augury Owl and Palace Familiar and Gravepurge, which do not serve much purpose/are lackluster in the deck.
Lack of any engine to fuel the deck lategame can make it feel like it does nothing in the lategame and is delaying it, making it tough to finish games on time.Scattered spells and lack of playsets of pretty much anything dilute reliability, which is crucial for a control deck.

I would suggest to start over and choose an engine to be the starting point of the deck. Trinket Mage package, Mystical Teachings, Rolling Thunder with recursion, metalcraft with Bleak Coven Vampires and Galvanic Blast and Stoic Rebuttal...

Any kind of theme would work, but as is, it is a pile of cards that have trouble working together.
