OUT: Lotus Petal, Chrome Mox, Thought Vessel, Blind Obedience, Trelasarra, Moon Dancer

IN: Ethereal Armor, Daybreak Coronet, Angelic Destiny, Spirit Mantle, Kor Spiritdancer

I'm trying to put in some more power to be able to close out games since my play group says this deck durdles too much.

I'm also trying to move this into more of an Ellivere of the Wild Court deck with Sythis, Harvest's Hand as one of the 99.

If I'm not mistaken a card like Blind Obedience can legally be in a mono white or any other EDH deck that does not even use black correct?

But a card like Torrent Elemental which I used in my toughness matters/defender modern bant deck that did not even use black but I legally couldn't use in my Arcades EDH deck kinda made me sad as it was like a pet card to me.

I have replaced Armadillo Cloak, Favor of the Overbeing, Shield of the Oversoul, and Steel of the Godhead with Blind Obedience, Cosmic Rebirth, Sylvan Library, and Trelasarra, Moon Dancer, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.71 to 3.68, since those cards far better fit the theme of this deck.

I have replaced Clout of the Dominus, Scourge of the Nobilis, and Steel of the Godhead with Blind Obedience, Comet Storm, and Triskaidekaphile, which reduced this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.71 to 3.69, since the latter cards better fit the theme of this deck; that is one less card that synergizes with Whirlwind of Thought and Wandering Mind, but it is always nice to have an additional win condition in a deck, especially one that provides fuel for itself.

Gidgetimer on Clarification on stack resolution

Correct, all triggers that ask for a mana payment are phrased as "you may pay" and so fall under 603.5 for optional effects of triggered abilities. You referred to the first ability on Leshrac's Sigil as a trigger, so I assumed you were familiar with the eratta on the card. In case you aren't or if someone else looking at the thread isn't; the current Oracle text on that first ability is "Whenever an opponent casts a green spell, you may pay . If you do, look at that player’s hand and choose a card from it. The player discards that card." This wording makes it a trigger and as you can see, it says "you may pay".

The triggers for Leshrac's Sigil, Aerie Worshippers, Yasova Dragonclaw, and extort (Blind Obedience) go on the stack no matter if you intend to pay the optional cost, or even have the resources to.

603.5. Some triggered abilities’ effects are optional (they contain “may,” as in “At the beginning of your upkeep, you may draw a card”). These abilities go on the stack when they trigger, regardless of whether their controller intends to exercise the ability’s option or not. The choice is made when the ability resolves. Likewise, triggered abilities that have an effect “unless” something is true or a player chooses to do something will go on the stack normally; the “unless” part of the ability is dealt with when the ability resolves.

I have replaced Helm of the Ghastlord and Steel of the Godhead with Blind Obedience and Keen Duelist, which reduced this deck's average converted mana cost from 3.94 to 3.89, which is very nice, because the latter cards far better match the theme of this deck than did the former cards.

My vote is for Ral, Caller of Storms. Considering the choices of the first two loyalty abilities, I don't think the power level justifies a 6 mana cost. That and I honestly believe you can get more bang for your buck with Guff's second loyalty ability.

Other cards that occurred to me and may want to consider adding are Reliquary Tower, Rowan, Scholar of Sparks  Flip and Teyo, the Shieldmage. I'm not entirely sure what you can remove to make room for these, but don't forget you have a commander who can get mana dorks on the battlefield for you and can draw you cards so don't be afaid to lean into that a bit.

While I was taking a another look at your deck, I noticed you have Blind Obedience. Even though the rules changed several years ago to allow it, the cost in the extort ability may be seen by some players as a violation of the color identity rule. I had a mono-black commander deck with a few extort cards and an opponent got really salty about it before another told him of the rule change. So I took them out to avoid future conflict.

If you choose to do the same, I'd recommend Lion Sash. Not only it will give you much needed graveyard hate without affecting your graveyard, but you'll be able to attach it to Gideon of the Trials while he's a creature and it can be tutored by Tezzeret the Seeker. Yes, I know its a creature, but Calamity's Wake and Rest in Peace will devastate your graveyard as well.

I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

artaud21 on Markov's Vampire Apocalypse

Lost Caverns of Ixalan new cards:

Master of Dark Rites - 1CMC mana producer is a perfect fit for Markov and perfect T1 drop

Order of Sacred Dusk - interesting option to change quantity into quality. Relevant if low on life or when ground forces face other token strategies or are not pumped enough to win combat

Charismatic Conqueror - it's like Blind Obedience on legs but I'm sure there will be times opponent chooses to give us more vampires instead of tapping. Tokens are though which does not please Ascendant Evincar

Bloodletter of Aclazotz - damage doubler is always nice if one can afford its high starting price

Queen's Bay Paladin - repeated Vampire reanimation can be relevant (Malakir Bloodwitch,Dominating Vampire) especialy with sac outlet but 5CMC can be too much for such a fast deck

Tarrian's Journal  Flip - repeatable draw effect is always nice especially when it can turn into double use of our dead Vampires. Mana is also nice.

Bartolome del Presidio - free sac outlet that pumps itself looks good although it doesn't help other vampires except for occassional combos (see Queen's Bay Paladin)
