Epicure of Blood Discussion

EdCartman on Vampire Life-Gain

considering this deck says "modern", here are some considerations:

if you intent to keep baking the cat you should consider: Cordial Vampire to get extra +1/+1 on all vampires.

also

Midnight Reaper ? why? there is something better without the life loss Grim Haruspex !!

Epicure of Blood it's ok for mono black but there is also a white/black vampire that has the same effect Cliffhaven Vampire (for 1 mana less... however is dual color B/W)

Wall of Shards + Tainted Remedy , or Exquisite Blood + Epicure of Blood + Brainspoil to help pull off the combo. Tree of Perdition + Transmutation if you order the mechanic in proper order, can one shot your opponent as things resolve on the stack. must be played properly though.

i see that you heavily focus on gaining life in your deck, but don't utilise it a lot (except for having a ton of life). the only cards that benefit from you having/gaining much life are, as far as i can see Resplendent Angel , Ajani's Pridemate , Dawn of Hope , Storm Herd and Ajani, Strength of the Pride .

if you really want to play around gaining life/having a ton of it, i would recommend Sanguine Bond , Felidar Sovereign , Greed , Ambition's Cost , Night's Whisper , Defiant Bloodlord , Phyrexian Arena , Epicure of Blood and/or Exquisite Blood .

remember that life is a resource in this game. just gaining a lot of it makes it harder for you to lose the game, yes, but you should also trie to use it to win the game.

if you are looking for any other kind of inspiration, feel free to check out my kaalia deck:

You might like these cards: Drogskol Reaver , Archangel of Thune , Cradle of Vitality (very good with big lifelinkers, of which you have many!), Zur's Weirding (with this and enough lifegain effects, you can stop your opponents from ever drawing another card), Regna, the Redeemer , Krav, the Unredeemed , Words of Worship (this results in crazy lifegain + drain when Oloro is out), Epicure of Blood

Don't forget Vampire Hexmage ;) There's also that new Vampire; Epicure of Blood .

I feel that they will never intentionally print another Exquisite Blood because then the combo would be too easy to kick off in Modern. If they did, it would be on a very high CMC creature to sway players from building it.

They might, however, do it as a Planeswalker emblem. Then it takes time and investment into getting it.

I think eventually they will, but it will be by a mistake / oversight of R&D, not something they explicitly print for the sole purpose of panning out the combo.

I would definitely add 4x Knight of the Ebon Legion and 4x Adanto Vanguard . Those are two of the best cards vampires have to offer right now. I'd probably cut Epicure of Blood and Skymarch Bloodletter right away. Other suggestions would be to add another Sorin for the full set and a few more Champion of Dusks and a little less Sanctum Seekers. I'm running WB Vampires a lot on arena right now and that's worked for me.
