Have you considered any extort cards besides Blind Obedience ?

Crypt Ghast can act as ramp as well as damage/lifegain, and Thrull Parasite can have utility for targeted counter removal as well.

A very nice Deck that you have here looks like a good Edgar Markov aristocrat list. I would only make a few suggestions.

Before I get to cards that I would add that would be both very good and fun for the deck here are my removal suggestions.

First, Bloodcrazed Paladin I don't think is a very good card. It's not good at all to play on the curve for two mana so the only time your going to play it is after a board wipe or after combat where many creatures died. In the first case if you left open the mana for him you may as well play a Boros Charm effect to save your board rather than just get one big vampire. The second case seems very niche and probably doesn't justify playing the card over something with much more utility.

Second, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is a card that can have scenarios where it works out good it is most of the time just too clunky of a card to work out. The issue is unlike other lords Bloodlord of Vaasgoth doesn't immediately pump your creatures now but rather those in the future. Additionally, he is also expensive mana wise so it's difficult to immediately utilize the bloodthirst effect immediately. What normally happened in my experience with the card and what I imagine usually happens is that your opponents just counter or remove the card before it gets back to your turn when you can start taking advantage of it again. On top of all that it does not serve the aristocrat's strategy that much overall since it does not buff any of your tokens but only the main vampire bodies.

Lastly, I would recommend removing Tithe Drinker or Blind Obedience not because I have any issue with them but rather I just think my third recommendation for the deck is better than either card.

Also as an aside, I don't have any specific recommendations because I think a lot of removal preferences are just that preferences. But in my experience, Edgar Markov struggles much more with enchantments than artifacts just because of pillow fort cards and Humility to name a few I would potentially consider running more removal spells that hit enchantments.

My first Recommendation over Bloodcrazed Paladin is Bloodghast the card is a lot of fun and incredibly powerful in aristocrats. with fetchlands in your deck you can get up to two free sacrifice triggers every turn that you can use with Skullclamp , Attrition , Mana Echoes , Altars, etc. Additionally, your playing entomb which can use go and find Bloodghast and start getting free value off of it.

Instead of Bloodlord of Vaasgoth I would play Bloodline Keeper  Flip. It is very easy to get the transform because of Edgar Markov and provides a powerful static lord effect that will even buff your tokens. Additionally, the card creates 2/2 vampire tokens which are already great for your aristocrat's strategy.

Lastly, I would just recommend playing Legion Lieutenant over one of the two I mentioned just because lord effects are especially good in aristocrats and I think will get you a lot more value than the exhorts from the other two cards.

Well, thats all for my suggestions feel free to check out my Edgar Markov deck here A Vampire Storm *Primer*, if you're looking for inspiration for your deck and/or give your own thoughts on my list.

Hey! Maybe Thalisse, Reverent Medium and Blind Obedience should be in? I'd also recommend Favorable Winds over Empyrean Eagle or Thunderclap Wyvern since it's an enchantment. Gravitational Shift can be a game-ender, too, and Throne of the God-Pharaoh quadruples your combat damage.

I haven't actually built this in paper, but I brewed up an Alela deck a few months ago, so this might function as a list of cards to consider: Alela fun stuff

Where I might make cuts: Ravenform
Tezzeret's Touch and Ensoul Artifact
Witching Well
Tezzeret the Schemer
Fabricate since you don't have very powerful artifacts to look for
Sharuum the Hegemon
Animating Faerie

I'm against it.

"as the entire point of hybrid cards was that they represented an "or" state rather than an "and" state."

If we'd extrapolate that, we'd be able to play Reaper King in a Hope of Ghirapur deck. Because its color identity is colorless, or mono white, or sultai, or... well anything you like. Meanwhile, the mana cost has undeniably hidden in it's cost. And it's a slippery slope. Phyrexian mana was also designed for flexibility to reach out of your color restraints. Should the colour identity of Noxious Revival be colorless too? I wouldn't be keen to explain the rules of color identity to new or inexperienced players: basically, it's the colors you can find on the card, either in the mana cost or the rules text. Except when the mana symbols look wonky, there's separate rules for those.

There's already the nuisance of having to explain that reminder text (italic, in parentheses) does not define color identity. Trinisphere is not a black card, and Blind Obedience is not an Orzhov card. Let's not expand that to the actual rules texts please.

Looks like a fun starter commander! Black White lifegain is a definite fun archtype to build, maybe work up towards something like Karlov of the Ghost Council or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic ! I know starting out budget is important as you don't want to invest in cards you might not like, so I've made the recommendations with that in mind!

On the first look, your commander can filter through your deck fairly consistently, so some reanimation spells like Dread Return Unburial Rites Victimize might work out for you!

Revival / Revenge and Light of Promise are both fun cards that offer some utility and can get out of hand.

Spirit Loop seems like it could have a home in your deck, as it's a consistent 2cmc spell that you can keep casting and getting back to trigger your commander.

Well of Lost Dreams Dawn of Hope Cosmos Elixir Are all sources of card draw that synergize with your lifegain gameplan! Your commander's colors are notoriously known for lacking card draw and ramp, so these might help keep you in the game!

Soul Warden Soul's Attendant and Suture Priest are decent lifegain triggers, as they trigger on each creature entering the battlefield.

Blind Obedience seems perfect for your deck!

Vampire Nighthawk Indulging Patrician Basilica Bell-Haunt Angel of Vitality are creatures that seem to fit with your gameplan.

Lurrus of the Dream-Den offers consistent recursion and allows you to cast lower cmc permanents. Kami of False Hope could also pair with this really well, as it's basically a fog effect that you can cast for cheap over and over!

In your current list, it appears a little removal light (which to be fair is meta dependent). since you're playing white, you have access to cards like Darksteel Mutation and Reprobation , which can be a headache for your opponents to deal with if you enchant their commander. Also Victimize is a great catchall removal spell.

Colored mana seems at a premium in your deck, so I'd also look into getting some cheaper artifact ramp like Marble Diamond and Charcoal Diamond .

For cuts, I'd recommend evaluating your cards in terms of whether they actively win the game or help you do what you want. In your current list Fortified Rampart I've found to be underwhelming and doesn't further your gameplan. I'd also recommend replacing the following: Star-Crowned Stag Skeleton Archer Reaper of Night Kor Scythemaster Inspiring Captain Hailstorm Valkyrie Gargoyle Sentinel Fiend Binder Angel of the Dawn Courier Griffin Silverflame Ritual Chaplain's Blessing Splendid Agony Djeru's Renunciation Sinister Possession .

That being said, it can sometimes be fun just trying your best with whatever cards are lying around! Hopefully the suggestions can give your deck a little pep!

Heliod, God of Tanning

Commander / EDH plakjekaas

SCORE: 1 | 51 VIEWS


This deck uses Meekstone , Crackdown and Marble Titan in combination with Authority of the Consuls , Blind Obedience and Thalia, Heretic Cathar -like effects to neutralise most creatures, keeping them tapped down if they have power 3 or greater. This works especially well with Heliod, God of the Sun , because he gives your team vigilance, making sure your creatures are still able to attack.
