Creature — Vampire
Whenever Blood Artist or another creature dies, target player loses 1 life and you gain 1 life. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield, tokens enter the graveyard before they cease to exist.)
SefTheReject on Mono-Black Exquisite Vito
3 days ago
Nice little build, ignore any suggestions that are not budget friendly, giving everything I can think of. Increase Sorin to 4, he’s very powerful and gets hate quick. 2 Vito should be fine. 4 Cordial Vampire, his ability is universal, not just your creatures dying. 2 Silversmote Ghoul work extremely well with Sorin’s second ability and comes back. 2 Vraan, Executioner Thane works great with Vito. Knight of the Ebon Legion is pump-able and doubles as a removal spell in the late game. Blood Artist combo’s well with cordial and several others. If you’re looking for a lord, Captivating Vampire is great with a decent second ability. Bloodghast is nice and comes back. 4 locthwain is perfect. 2 Cavern of Souls for tribal and protection. Fetches thin out your deck, Prismatic Vista works since this is mono colored. Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats & or Bloodstained Mire work too.
Delphen7 on Yawgmoth Combo Question

I understand the general idea behind the deck; looping undying creatures with Yawg for infinites, but in this video (timestamp 13:20-13:40) I saw AspiringSpike scoop as soon as Yawg hit the table with Young Wolf and Strangleroot Geist, and I don't understand why.
The Yawg player could only loop the two undyers back and forth, essentially paying a life to draw a card each iteration; they had no payoffs on the field, and last I checked there was no Blood Artist effect in red. They didn't even have the mana to Chord of Calling
Is there something in the deck they can cast that wins them the game, or did Spike prematurely scoop?
Best I could tell, they'd loop a couple times, draw some cards, and then Spike could burn them out of the game.

Thanks for the insight jdogz32!
I actually even have a version of the deck with Thran Vigil where I replaced Young Wolf with Putrid Goblin to utilize Thran Vigil's effect. However it massively alters the mana-curve from from a 1-drop, two 2-drops and two 3-drops to literally zero 1-drop but four 2-drops. Taking into account the Profane Tutor you have way to many options for turn 2 while completely giving up the chance to do something significant on turn one. With Thran Vigil you eventually even give up on the chance of a natural turn-3-win.
I like the idea to add either Zulaport Cutthroat or Blood Artist at least to the sideboard to circumvent hexproof/shroud. When checking for reasonable or expectable hexproof effects in modern, only Leyline of Sanctity came to mind, which I can get rid of rather easily with maindeck Boseiju, Who Endures or Prismatic Ending. I can ignore Veil of Summer since both win conditions are artifacts.
In the mentioned alternative version I actually considered Kitchen Finks. However it doesn't constitute a win condition in itself and therefore will still falter to e.g. mill or decks with other unconventional win conditions. It might be interesting against burn-type, but even then I rather win the game directly.

Hi Masterful love the guide! What are your thoughts on Tombstone Stairwell? Just having 2-3 minions in the grave represents 8-12 death triggers per turn cycle. Playing this in the mid to late game might just win us the game with a Blood Artist effect on board.
Unlife on Tribal Vamping

I think with Strefan, Maurer Progenitor you need a lot of effects like Blood Artist and Bastion of Remembrance paired with some token generators and kill spells so early game you're just draining your opponents a bit and making blood tokens. Later on you can start swinging and dropping big bodies, maybe with Lithoform Engine and Strionic Resonator to double the triggers.
In a slightly different vein you could look at a soul sisters token build with Elenda, the Dusk Rose. Anointed Procession and Mondrak, Glory Dominus doubles your tokens, things like Soul Warden gain you lots of life, if you run tribal effects throw in a copy of Conspiracy so everything's a vamp anyways, and white has a lots of anthems to help boost your boardstate.
On a completly different end of the spectrum is Rayami, First of the Fallen You get black for the good vamps, green for ramp and blue for control, plus plenty of kill spells can suddenly turn your commander into a voltron beatstick.

carpecanum, thank you so much for your feedback!
I'm completely new to commander (besides playing 2 games), and after a hiatus from MTG I thought I'd make a commander deck to join into the hype ^^
I got rid of some cards that didn't have anything special (Blood Artist), didn't fit the commander's color (Nahiri's Machinations), or were being replaced by others abilities (Engineered Might and Lunarch Mantle); to add Dolmen Gate, Contagion Clasp (for good measure), Contagion Engine, and Pollenbright Wings.
Thank you again for the comment!

IF you want to move to sacrifice triggers, Blood Artist is super powerful when it's not attacking.
multimedia on Cards that buff zombie tribal?
2 months ago
Zombie Master and Filth don't buff, but instead they can make your Zombies unblockable. Noxious Ghoul can wreck your opponent's creatures since it triggers each time a Zombie token is created. This effect is essentially giving your Zombies evasion since it will clear away opponent blockers.
Zombies can have an advantage using your life as a resource for repeatable draw. Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, Undead Augur is Zombie tribal draw using life. Bolas's Citadel is powerful black card that uses your life which can also be a sac outlet for 10 Zombie tokens.
Augur/Dark Prophecy/Erebos, Bleak-Hearted + Blood Artist/Bastion of Remembrance/Zulaport Cutthroat pairing these cards can be a draw engine with Zombie tokens.
Plague Belcher, Vengeful Dead are Zombie tribal aristocrats and with Zombie tokens they pair well with a free activation sac outlet such as Carrion Feeder, Phyrexian Altar, Viscera Seer, Blasting Station, Ashnod's Altar.
Gravecrawler is Zombie tribal repeatable sac fodder for Gisa. Skullclamp is nice draw with tokens, when you're sacing creatures and with Gravecrawler.
