Elenda, the Dusk Rose occurrence in decks from the last year

Elenda, the Dusk Rose Discussion

Since you have a lot of the ping life type guys like Blood Artist and such, I'm surprised you aren't running the Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood combo.

Also you are missing some other good lords and tribal vamp stuff like Bloodline Keeper  Flip Bloodlord of Vaasgoth Champion of Dusk Elenda, the Dusk Rose Falkenrath Gorger Forerunner of the Legion Indulgent Aristocrat Kalastria Highborn Legion Lieutenant Legion's Landing  Flip Malakir Bloodwitch Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle New Blood Olivia, Mobilized for War Olivia's Bloodsworn Feast of Blood Patron of the Vein Sanctum Seeker Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord Stensia Banquet Stensia Masquerade Thirsting Bloodlord Urge to Feed Vampire Nocturnus Vampiric Fury

ok way more suggestions than I expected, but all good cards to consider! Obviously don't need all of them, it depends on your strategy and what you want to focus on. I would very highly recommend at least Bloodwitch, Mavren Fein, Sanctum Seeker, and probably Legion Lieutenant and Landing for good cheap value on the low end. There's a lot you can get into if you want to mess with madness strategies, or focus on lifegain type stuff and exsanguinate. Like typically you would run Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for an exsanguinate wincon, among other things. There are other Sorins you can dabble in if you want, but Imperious Bloodlord is probably the most value at 3 CMC and has strong synergy for straight vamp strategies.

"Nadier's Nightblade": Not strictly worse than Zulaport Cutthroat since it's "leaves" (watch out Cyclonic Rift!) and counts noncreature tokens like Treasures.

"Nadier, Agent of Twilight": Lena, Selfless Champion with some Elenda, the Dusk Rose sprinkled on top

Rakshasa Debaser: not bad on its own, and basically having aftermath: cast three Reanimate + some damage is pretty nice too

You have two copies of Ministrant of Obligation.

42 lands is way too many. 36 or 37 lands max.

Liliana, Dreadhorde General is a must.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose should not be in the "maybe" but rather in your deck.

Keeper is busted. Just saying, right now, any land deck that can run white needs it. Sylvan Safekeeper or any other sacrifice outlet and you will run out of basics, it's busted, Splendid Reclamation and it's a win. It's like Burgeoning met Land Tax and it's stupid good. Any token aristocrats deck like Elenda, the Dusk Rose gets an easy sacrifice per opponent's turn that has more than a few creatures, as you just sacrifice all the tokens to a Carrion Feeder or whatever and get right back to where you need it.

Better than Oracle of Mul Daya easily. Card advantage? Check. Mana advantage? Maybe not, but mana parity no matter how you abuse it.

New partners are scary. Hope they reprint the old ones for price concerns!

It’s some kind of mix of Prossh, Skyraider of Kher and Elenda, the Dusk Rose. Both of those are frankly better at generating a critical mass of tokens. I would think your commander would do well by having an ability to make more tokens by exerting when attacking while also having a tap ability to sacrifice rats. You wouldn’t have to exert the second ability since having the competition of attacking vs tapping is enough of a balance.

I have a 2/2 Elenda, the Dusk Rose out and 2x 1/1 vampires. Then someone plays a card (I can't remember what it is) that causes each player and creature to take 3 damage. Since Elenda gets a +1/+1 when a creature dies, does she survive or would she die to the 3 dmg?

i.e. Elenda takes 3 dmg, so is at 2/-1 then gains +2/+2 from the 2x 1/1 vampires dying, leaving her at 4/1 until of turn.. OR would she just flat out die?

I have noticed that the mouse-over for my Commanders is behaving oddly. Sometimes it works properly (Emiel the Blessed, Kels, Fight Fixer, Lyra Dawnbringer) and sometimes only a small section of the card appears, blown up to fill the whole allotted area (Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Riku of Two Reflections, Meren of Clan Nel Toth). I have not yet gone through all of my Commanders, but I have not found a specific trigger for what makes it fail.
