I'd cut: Tainted Field and Tainted Peak . You need way more swamps for these to not be colorless lands a lot of the time. Basilisk Collar seems pretty marginal. It's just low impact, especially without pingers. Bloodcrazed Paladin also seems pretty bad. Diamond Knight isn't really playable in monocolor, much less three color. Cabal Paladin is also bad. Prismatic Lens isn't a good 2 cmc mana rock. Add the Talismans over it. Righteous Confluence is on theme, but also just kinda terrible. 3 knights for 5 mana at sorcery seems bad, even if you're exiling an enchantment as well. Steelclaw Lance seems too low impact as well.

I'd add: Nomad Outpost . And just generally, since so many of your knights have heavy color requirements, I think you need a very good mana base. I like all of Gus's suggestions for knights to add. Sylvia Brightspear should also probably be played if you're playing her partner. She's also solid with the swords of. Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Silverblade Paladin seem better than a bunch of your other knights. Balan, Wandering Knight also seems pretty decent. It's better than Twinblade Paladin at the very least. I think you should also be running a bunch of the good non-knight equipment creatures. Sram, Senior Edificer is great card advantage as is Stonehewer Giant . Merciless Eviction is imo a must play in w/b. Likewise, I think Sunforger is a must play in W/R

LadyZ, thanks for comments.

Maybeboard for this deck is some randome stuff near vampire theme from my card pool. So, I indicated that it is possible to advise cards not only from there. And I don't consider Duskmantle Prowler or Famished Paladin too.

Change Sangromancer on Bloodcrazed Paladin seems good. I think about change vampires with big manacost on more simple.

Think I don't need Anguished Unmaking right now. In our playgroup I don't see deck with graveyard interaction. So don't need change simple "destroy" on "exile".

About lands - best way to put in the deck both, Luxury Suite and Blood Crypt and something like Godless Shrine , but not right now.

I can see a few cuts as well. I don't like Sangromancer for this deck, life gain isn't necessarily something you want to worry about. More an incidental benefit. I'd replace Mortify with Anguished Unmaking .

From your maybeboard, I looove Bloodcrazed Paladin . Excellent way to rebuild from a boardwipe. There's some cards there that I wouldn't consider personally. Duskmantle Prowler for example. 4 mana for a 2/2 haste? you probably won't be using Exalted ever. Depending on how you build your deck, you won't always be able to untap Famished Paladin

I would also suggest taking out Bloodcrazed Paladin unless you have ways to consistently sac creatures as otherwise you're playing 2 for a 1/1 and Bloodsworn Steward , as it only affects your Commander and there are better ways or creatures to put in, instead of it. Such as Ashenmoor Liege or any of my other above-suggested creatures.

Alright I moved the Open the Graves to the sideboard, cut a Vindictive Vampire , and added two Spawn of Mayhem .

As much as Bloodcrazed Paladin doesn't directly fit into the theme of the deck I started with it as a sideboard card and found myself constantly sideboarding it in over other cards. Added two more to the sideboard, and eventually moved three of them into my main. With one activation of Priest of Forgotten Gods it is already a 4/4 for 2 mana drop which can be dropped during an opponents turn even if you are tapped out of mana. I also have twice had the situation where in response to a board wipe I use Priest of Forgotten Gods and after the wipe resolves have used the two black mana to cast Bloodcrazed Paladin . One time as a 10/10 which was a win-con as the turn passed to me so I've found him to be a very reactive card in a deck which puts out a lot of creatures (often asking to be board wiped).

I am definitely going to keep Drill Bit in the back of my mind next week at Standard and will try it on and off in Arena where it is easiest to adapt changes.

I mean, one-ofs already get pulled so rarely, it's probably worth cutting Open the Graves . If I like a card a lot in a particular situation, I'd rather run two or three in the side than one in the main. I think Bloodcrazed Paladin is probably your least thematic card, and Vindictive Vampire is a bit much at 4 CMC. All that said, if I were trying to add Spawn of Mayhem to your deck in a meaningful way that doesn't compromise the integrity of what you've already built, I'd cut one of each of the cards above and add three Spawns.

If you really want Open the Graves against control, I'd put two or three in the side, and cut some one-ofs, there.

If Duress always let's you discard the card you want, no need to compromise your playset with Drill Bit . I think a fun thought experiment might be to take note of every time you use Duress , and see how often you wish it was Drill Bit , instead. Easy enough way to figure out if it'd be a valuable swap.

Hey welcome to T/O arcrayne!

So if your struggling with early game being way too slow than yes your curve is way too high already. Since Markov makes tokens for you real quick, you want to use cards that are low CMC as well as give you a bunch of effects to make it worth. Here are some example cards that you don't have that can be considered using.

Those are some examples of well costed creatures that are low to drop but does things as well. Cards that aren't useful are like these one below.

Hope that kind of explains why these cards are not too great in this build. Also some tech card is Faith's Reward , absolute life saver when it comes to saving your guys from a board wipe!

Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice!

Hey TheErebos!

Alright so cards off the top of my head to definitely keep for the vampires.

Now moving on to the card types, for anthem/doubling/synergy token effects:

Now going for the interaction suite:

Now for card draw engines:

No good deck is left without tutors as well:

So far those cards are to be considered, sort through the cards and we can refine them to a playable deck list. Add in 36 lands to start, I feel that eventually we can cut it down to 34-35 since Markov will run a low curve. The basic lands should be good along with the basic multicolor mana base like Command Tower, Reflecting Pool, Mana Confluence, Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, the shock lands (Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt, Sacred Foundry), and also the painlands for now (Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos, Sulfurous Springs).

Let me know when you update it!
