RambIe on Best Play I Have Seen …

granted this year is only 12 days so far
but in last Saturdays games my buddy Silverbutters made one of the most epic plays!!!
faced off against a Edgar Markov deck poor Silverbutters was taking an onslaught of flying lifelinking vampires to the face every turn!!
but when Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose hit the board Silverbutters immediately recognized the threat
his opponent moved to combat and swung all out for the win.
Silverbutters finally released his tight grip and dropped Chaos Warp targeting Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose
Silverbutters could barely contain his laughter as his opponent freaked out.
after a about 10 mins of arguing and laughter Chaos Warp finally resolved
Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose was placed into the deck, the deck was shuffled, then passed to Silverbutters to be cut, then the top card was flipped and

fuxx it does pretty decently against other midrange decks, but it would lose to stuff like Edgar Markov in 1v1. I haven't played it in nearly as much 1v1 as I have in 4-player

You're mana curve is unusually high for an Edgar Markov deck. I would recommend more 1-2 drops, and only a few high costing vampires. Edgar is popular because he does something that's hard to do, and that's reward aggro decks for playing low costing threats to overwhelm your opponents early.

Edgar Markov - here is art where all pieces are fleshing out a character story without being over-wrought fantasy action-pose stuff. Just a badass dude getting dressed for war by his subservient subjects.. All around great when art can tell a story without an extreme action pose. I like the same thing about Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis

Feast of Blood might be nice because any vampire gives you another with Edgar Markov, and from there it is a two cmc removal spell with an additional 4 life attached.

I've been pretty lucky but did give away two in-the-box precons of Edgar Markov, which had a ton of value and even at the time the only way to get Teferi's Protection to some friends. They loved it, and I thought it was one of the better precons that year, but in hindsight could have given them the cat one (same power level out of the deck, poor wizards and dragons deck just couldn't compete) and while I don't really mind since they were happy, it's funny that I gave what I think is 200 dollars of cards out now lol.

Congrats on the sword! I'll toss you any other suggestions so feel free to ask if you want more!

Hi HannahBarbera, thanks for your suggestions. Anointed Procession tends to annoy me since it doesn't do a lot when the whole board is already set up (unlike Teysa, Orzhov Scion) but for now I moved it back in. Shared Animosity is a powerhouse for Edgar Markov decks but I feel it doesn't really suit the aristocrats-style enough. I might end up putting it in later though. Once again thank you for the suggestions! ;)

@Coward_Token: As the title says, it's jank, slow and a gamble. It looks very fun but not like "high power edh" This is about who's the best commander and whether Mishra, Artificer Prodigy is stronger than Sliver Hivelord / Edgar Markov. And he just isn't.
