SefTheReject on Bordello of Blood

YamishiTheWickedOne, thank you for checking out the build and for the suggestions. Regarding said suggestions, I do have Thoughtseize in the sb, Inquisition of Kozilek is something I considered, but wasn’t sure if it should be part of the main or the side and how many. I agree Vampire Nocturnus is great, but a little slow for modern imo, even if it’s cheated out with sorin. Gatekeeper of Malakir was in an earlier build and is very solid, but only effective when kicked and if played on curve, it’s not the best turn 3 play since we’re already leaving mana open for Kalastria Highborn . Gifted Aetherborn is one of my favorite vampires, but didn’t seem to synergies as well in this particular build. Indulgent Aristocrat is another card I considered while building this, but decided against it because it’s a 1/1 and it costs 2 for the sac/buff effect, I do see a nice combo with Cordial Vampire tho. I could be completely wrong with the thought process, but will reevaluate things based on your suggestions.

Looks very similar to the Pioneer semi-meta build. Ok, so, since you have Sorin, I'd recommend running Nocturnus, especially since you have Viscera + Bloodghast. Or alternatively Kalitas for obvious reasons. Because of Viscera being a main component of the Aristocrats sacrifice engine, Nocturnus synergizes decently with it.

Honestly, the deck looks fine although a 4th Sorin would be a good idea. You've got decent card draw between Silversmote, Locthwain and Silent Clearing. I think you could stand to add another set of fetch lands if you can afford them.

Other vamps I'd recommend... hmmm.... Maybe Gatekeeper of Malakir for more removal. Gifted Aetherborn is a very good 2-drop but idk if he goes with this deck given the more midrange-ish structure. Perhaps Indulgent Aristocrat ? He suits you well.

Only other thing I'd do here is add some Thoughtseize and/or Inquisition of Kozilek .

Followup thoughts: You kind of already have the trifecta of level 1 vamps here being Viscera, Noble and Ebon Legion along with Bloodghast. I personally prefer to go one or the other between straight up aggressive or the more Aristocrats style sacrifice engine. Myself, I'd replace Highborn or maybe Cordial with Gatekeeper of Malakir and/or Gifted Aetherborn . Though between Sorin, Zagras and Ebon you already have a lot of deathtouch going around.

Other big creatures to consider: Vampire Nocturnus because you have fetch lands and Seer + Ghast, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet who has excellent synergy with the first strike + deathtouch interaction, and Champion of Dusk . Not a big fan of Yahenni here (Love him in EDH but trying to do too many things in Modern makes it feel cluttered).

Non-creature support: I like including Mutavault and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . Terminate is a good Rakdos creature hate spell that can be easily swapped for Dreadbore in your side game 2 if necessary. Maybe up your Thoughtseize count or toss in 2-3 Inquisition of Kozilek .

Vampire of the Dire Moon and Gifted Aetherborn for B and BB respectively?

Both have deathtouch which feels in-theme here

I agree with trying to capitalize on creatures a little more than noncreatures since you already have Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Liliana Vess caring about them to one degree or another. I think the best creatures to look into would be vampires since you already have a decent shell for them. Gatekeeper of Malakir or Feast of Blood could swap for Geth's Verdict , Gifted Aetherborn or Nighthawk Scavenger could supplement Vampire Nighthawk , Pulse Tracker or Vampire of the Dire Moon could replace Mardu Shadowspear , Blood Artist could replace Cutthroat, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose provides redundancy for Sanguine Bond , Pawn of Ulamog can provide sac fodder for cards like Ob Nix or Viscera Seer , Nullpriest of Oblivion is a flexible way to reanimate beefy monsters like Sangromancer , Vampire Nocturnus , Malakir Bloodwitch , Butcher of Malakir , or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . Finally, while not a vampire, I'd rather play Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor if you can't afford the OG 1-2 cost tutors. BTW, I'm not saying you should run all of these cards; just run what fits your playstyle.

Pathinfder97 on Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose Mono Black

For life link and death touch I like Vampire Nighthawk and Gifted Aetherborn over Blood Glutton . Because it’s mono black maybe Gray Merchant of Asphodel could have a place here?

Some budget removal would be Bone Splinters , Eliminate , Smother or Murder . Drag to the Underworld May be a good option as well.

Some lifelink enchantments are Vampiric Link and Eternal Thirst Dark Ritual isn’t modern but can help cast big creatures early if you’re playing kitchen table.

Duress can be helpful going up against faster decks and a peek at someone’s hand is always nice.

This looks like a fun deck to play!

Hey, good start on a budget.

Cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:

  • Beacon of Immortality
  • Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood
  • Vein Drinker
  • Defiant Bloodlord
  • Mirari
  • Grisly Spectacle
  • Archetype of Finality
  • Arvad the Cursed
  • Teysa Karlov
  • Captivating Crew
  • Bishop of Binding
  • Regal Bloodlord
  • Tempt with Immortality
  • Solar Blaze
  • Commander's Insignia
  • Congregate

The cuts to consider above will reduce the mana curve a lot, but consider reducing it even more by adding more low CMC Vamps: one drops and two drops? With Edgar you want an established battlefield of Vamps to attack before you cast him. Lower CMC Vamps gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each one also creates a Vamp token. Edgar is the high CMC Vamp you want to cast more the than the others therefore you don't really need lots of other high CMC Vamps or even high CMC nonVamp cards.

Vamps to consider adding that are $1-$2 each, most are less than $1:

If your budget allows more then these tribal Vamps are powerful upgrades:


Some budget land upgrades for the manabase:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

PhyrexianPreator - Phyrexian Arena is a better effect than Dark Confidant and most decks playing him run 4 of him. I know I'm running 3 as well, but most decks also don't have any sort of sustain with things like Gary and Gifted Aetherborn so I think it's fine. Also, given that this is a midrange deck with an average mana cost of around 2.5, drawing 2, 3, 4 cards for the price of a bit of life will almost always be worth it. Can help out trying to dig for an answer to anything. Gatekeeper to kill something and get a body, Dismember to kill something, Murderous Rider to kill a planeslwalker, Anguished Unmaking to get an enchantment / artifact off the board
