Cliffhaven Vampire occurrence in decks from the last year

griffstick on Soul Sisters Machine Gun - Pauper (Update Friday!)

This is neat. Mayne take a shot at pauper edh. It's the same rules and ban list ad edh except every card in the 99 has to be a common card at some point in history just like pauper rules. And the cmdr has to be an uncommon at some point in history. A commanders you could build around using this deck idea are. Vizkopa Guildmage, Cliffhaven Vampire, and Regal Bloodlord

You could definitely add some pay offs for your life gain triggers like Dawn of Hope, Well of Lost Dreams, Cliffhaven Vampire, and Boon Reflection.

There are also tons of other cards that get counters when you gain life such as, Sunbond, Light of Promise, Ajani's Pridemate, Wall of Limbs, and Bloodthirsty Aerialist which can all become problems very quickly since its per trigger of life gain.

You could also look into more spells that trigger at the end of turn if you gained a certain amount of life. Resplendent Angel, Regna, the Redeemer, Regal Bloodlord, Angelic Accord, the new Witch of the Moors, and Griffin Aerie.

And then adding more consistent forms of life gain will let you get more triggers therefore making you a bigger threat. Drana's Emissary, Shattered Angel, Soulmender, Nyx-Fleece Ram, Ajani's Mantra, Ajani Goldmane, and Palace Siege.

Finally, I've seen enough people win with Felidar Sovereign not to recommend it to any life gain deck.

I had removed Vizkopa Guildmage and Cliffhaven Vampire the other day as they weren't as strong as the other cards I added (still very difficult to pick which to replace). Thank you for the other suggestions! I will look at them to see if they fit/appeal to me. Appreciate the help :)

Thank you for your suggestions Peoyogon!

Rhox Faithmender is definitely interesting. It's 1 cheaper than Alhammarret's Archive, which I have also seen some people run. Maybe I should run both?

I can't believe i forgot about Exsanguinate, I need to get me one of those. Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Indulging Patrician are already planned to go in, once I can visit my friend and trade for them. And yeah, Cliffhaven Vampire and Aetherflux Reservoir are definitely going on my list of cards to acquire!

The big challenge is probably going to be what to cut. I know i'm probably going to have to cut some of the non-lifegain related firepower, but I kinda still want my creatures to be a threat. Something to think about for sure.

Peoyogon on Edgar Markov drains your life

I really like that you are taking a different direction with Markov than most people! I have a couple cards I thought might be interesting to consider...

For general lifegain goodies, I really like Rhox Faithmender. It breaks away from vampire tribal but it might give your life-matters theme great support!

Here are a handful of syphon effects that you might want to consider as well: Exsanguinate, Subversion, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Polluted Bonds, Kalastria Highborn, Indulging Patrician, Foul-Tongue Shriek, Epicure of Blood, and Cliffhaven Vampire.

Finally, if you want another way to turn all that life into fire-power, Aetherflux Reservoir can be a great way to blowup your opponents' face :)

Alimon238 on Girls Get Everything (Sen Triplets EDH)

I want to make a Sen Triplets deck that plays with life gain and drain, for example using the triplets ability of allowing you to play spells from opponents hands to cast their creatures and having a Soul Warden to gain life and a Cliffhaven Vampire and/or a Epicure of Blood out to drain them. Then when you have enough life, blow the opponents up with Aetherflux Reservoir. Or if that dont work go for the infinite life loop with Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood. What cards should I get to best make that kinda strat possible to pull off?
