Culling the Weak Discussion

You need more ramp since you have a lot of expensive cards. For ramp you need: Arcane Signet , Charcoal Diamond , Jet Medallion , Nyx Lotus , Dark Ritual , Culling the Weak , Wayfarer's Bauble , Bubbling Muck . Take out Ugin, the Ineffable . I don't know why you have it, there are hardly enough colorless cards to make it effective. Also take out Josu Vess, Lich Knight , Abhorrent Overlord , and a couple more expensive cards that cost 6+ cmc. You also need to change your boardwipes. They are far too expensive to be effective. Trade Necromantic Selection for Shadows' Verdict , Deadly Tempest for Mutilate , Oblivion Stone for Soul Shatter . I would suggest Decree of Pain for Damnation or Toxic Deluge considering the deck price. Other cards to consider adding: Swiftfoot Boots , Defile , Phyrexian Arena , Sign in Blood , Read the Bones , Night's Whisper . Since you are already running good sac outlets, Exsanguinate and Torment of Hailfire consider adding an Infinite Mana Combo. Make these changes and the deck will be much faster and more competitive.

Epicurus on Syr Haakon's Big Sister

I have a decent amount of self mill, and sometimes lose more equipment than I lose Knights.

The ultimate aim of all that is to get Haakon into the graveyard as early as possible. Once he's there, it doesn't matter how many Knights are in the yard, because they're basically in my hand. However, the equipment has no such help.

I could probably cut Infernal Plunge for Dark Ritual or other ramp, but I wouldn't cut it for anything else. It made sense at the time I made the deck (because I can easily recur the creature I lose to it, much like Culling the Weak ), but there certainly are many more black pips in the deck than red. So that will happen for sure. Haven't ever really thought about it, to be honest. Good call.

You have Rograkh! Mox Amber is free, and it's easy to make Culling the Weak work! PS: I landed on your deck to find idead for my own version stole a couple of things, thanks!

Maybe Culling the Weak can be your replacement for Burnt Offering.

I like Bolas's Citadel because it combos with Sensei's Divining Top or Necropotence to win. A lot of people run Aetherflux with that combo but I cut Aetherflux and I have never not wok with just the Citadel and Top or Necropotence.

Chainer, Dementia Master is a fun one. He combos with K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth and any sac outlet to go (essentially) infinite with Kokusho and truly infinite with Gary.

Chainer and K'rrik are usually my targets for Buried Alive (along with Viscera Seer ) or Entomb or I use Final Parting to get one of them to graveyard and Reanimate to my hand.

Nim Deathmantle pairs well with Kokusho. Or it can just win the game with Su-Chi and Blasting Station .

Razaketh, the Foul-Blooded is a card I haven't yet added but intend to.

zAzen7977 Thank you for the comments! I'm actually saving up for Chrome Mox , Jeweled Lotus , Lion's Eye Diamond , Mox Amber , Mox Opal , Mox Tantalite , Mox Diamond , Lotus Bloom and Lotus Petal . I'm also going to pick up Culling the Weak and Cruel Tutor when I order the other cards. I'll probably cut a handful of basics for the fast mana.

TriusMalarky on K'rikk the big succ

You have an average CMC of 4(2.6 if you include lands). That's pretty high, and you have one low mana rock. You definitely have ways to get tons of mana, but they tend to be 4 or more mana, often they're 6 mana.

Personally, I'd want to ramp hard into things like Caged Sun and Crypt Ghast , and then use the huge amount of mana with card draw spells to draw extreme amounts of cards.

So I'd recommend the cards Dark Ritual , Cabal Ritual , Sol Ring , Mind Stone , Songs of the Damned , Charcoal Diamond , Worn Powerstone , Thran Dynamo , and Culling the Weak . You could have lines like turn one Dark Ritual, Worn Powerstone, and then cast Crypt Ghast turn two. You'd have 8 mana on turn three if all your lands were basic swamps. Of course that's a nut draw, though, so don't expect it every game.

You can then wield one-shot draw effects like Read the Bones , Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , etc. and add to your repeatable card draw effects with Greed and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip.

Also, I'd really recommend Tendrils of Agony , because after casting several spells in one turn with all your mana, you can cast it and do a bunch of draining. It is possible to oneshot the table with this, but it's difficult unless you're explicitly trying to.

You'll also want ways to fill your graveyard for Agadeem and such effects, but I don't have suggestions on that right now.

Dope deck!

You might find that replacing Drana's Emissary with Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose will net you a ton more lifegain, and potential win condition. Also, I understand you want to keep your vamps low cost, but you might consider playing Champion of Dusk instead of Painful Truths or Pact of the Serpent. For Two extra mana you get a vampire body and it has the same text as Pact of the Serpent.

Agadeem's Awakening  Flip is a great replacement for a Swamp

Legion's Landing  Flip is insane in Edgar. Vamp n Ramp baby

Culling the Weak can lead to some pretty insane turn two vamp storms

Enjoy
