So, on the subject of a monoblack land base...Let's see...

4-8 fetches. As long as it can fetch a basic swamp it's fine.

6 swamps

4 Castle Locthwain

4 Mutavault

2 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

if you can fit them, 1 Cabal Coffers 1 Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

Shizo, Death's Storehouse is ok if you can fit it.

total 23 lands is the sweet spot for your curve. Maybe 22 because Sorin can mitigate the costs of 4-5 mana vamps.

Speaking of Sorin, if you JUST want a really beefy vampire to drop with him the answer is Chancellor of the Dross. I really prefer Champion though.

Cavern of Souls is nice to have here just as mainboard blue hate, but it's not necessary. I run 2 because I own them irl.

Mortlocke on New hubs to be added

Hello legendofa,

I propose a new hub to be added: Phyrexian. During Modern Horizons 2, 225 creatures were retconned into having the Phyrexian creature subtype to join Vorinclex, Monstrous Raider . Additionally, there were a smattering of Enchantments, Artifacts and etc that ether have the Phyrexian subtype or create creature tokens that do. Thanks to this retcon I now have a deck that has a Phyrexian tribal theme. For your reference, below is a full list of spells that were affected by WotC's Phyrexian errata.

It feels kind of unfocused still. idk if Anowon or Nirkana Revenant are the best Sorin -3 targets. If you want big vamps in monoblack to drop via Sorin, Champion of Dusk , Malakir Bloodwitch , Bloodlord of Vaasgoth and Chancellor of the Dross are probably better choices, and the really good vamps should be 4-ofs. At least up Ebon to 4. That card is seriously good. Also in place of Yahenni I'd add 2 Captivating Vampire , and add one Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx if you're going the monocolor route.

Neat trick you can pull off completely free is using Urborg to sit on your fetch lands and tap them for mana until you need to force a shuffle for Nocturnus or to revive Bloodghast.

Agadeem's Awakening is fine. I think it's a good card that can be a land in an emergency. I run 1 in my Pioneer vamps.

Oh and seriously try out Mutavault . It's good. Also Monoblack wants Castle Locthwain .

Zagras may actually be easier to slot in regardless of "party" mechanics thanks to Sorin. I think he's a good compliment to lots of low-cost aggressive vamps given the inceased number of viable walkers in Modern now. For a big beater that you can just drop via Sorin's -3 I'd look at Chancellor of the Dross .

Also I can't help but feel like Zagras makes a particularly terrifying partner for Stromkirk Captain .

Sol Ring is about banned everywhere except Vintage restricted and Commander. (All other formats are so unpopular it's not even worth mentioning) It's just a suggestion, i mean sooner or later someone in your playgroup will come up with broken shit, just because everything is legal and this is where the fun ends. As long as everyone enjoys it, no worries there. Mostly it ends there like everyone thinking about a 60x Chancellor of the Dross deck.

Daveslab2022: yeah he won the game, and i immediately left without finishing the match. but not before giving my opponent and the tournament organizer a piece of my mind. it didnt have an entry fee thankfully. it was just some average joes at an anime convention. but to me it seemed quite obvious those guys knew each other. because who builds a deck of 60 Chancellor of the Dross without knowing in advance they'll have an opportunity to use it?

i once played in a game in an small "anything goes" tournament, which i thought would be something like this. i saw "anything goes" and i immediately thought "vintage with no restricted cards or banned cards".

turns out it was quite literally "anything goes" and my very first opponent had a deck of 60 Chancellor of the Dross.
