Nice build!

I agree with rambunctiousOrator, your actual mana curve is actually pretty good. 50 total cards in your deck are 3 drops or less, which is a respectable number. If you really wanted some cheap ideas, however, perhaps Black Market, Bontu's Monument or Dark Ritual could help for black. Seething Song is a nice cheap ramp for red. If you're willing to put a few extra dollars into the deck, I'd suggest finishing out the filter lands with Graven Cairns and Rugged Prairie. Chromatic Lantern is also nice and still under $20.

Your creature count is pretty high in terms of card type ratio, and this may be an area you can cut out to add more mana ramp - but that's my personal opinion. The cool thing about your deck is a lot of the vampires are cheap, so as long as you can protect them you'd likely have a massive army on the board (with tokens from Edgar), and recover from a board wipe very quickly.

I also have an Edgar deck, which is 40% cards I added from my own collection and the other 60% is the pre-con from the 2017. Maybe it could spark some ideas for you - but keep in mind mine is designed to go wide and add +1/+1 counters.

The mana base is a bit slow all the tap lands. You will consistently find yourself behind a turn due to the lands coming into play tapped. it would be best to replace the guildgates and cards like Akoum Refuge with lands like:

Sacred Foundry, Godless Shrine, Blood Crypt, Graven Cairns, Fetid Heath, Rugged Prairie, and Savai Triome. some fetches can help with consistency too: Marsh Flats, Arid Mesa, Bloodstained Mire

Idk why I keep commenting here, but the manabase is wack. 2 Godless Shrine?? You're probably not going to need to shock yourself more than 4 times with Blood Crypts so I don't think Shrines are needed. Fiery Islet is pretty terrible in a deck that runs 4 Dauthi Voidwalker.

1-2 Graven Cairns could be decent for manafixing. 1 Shizo, Death's Storehouse is good for making monke unblockable. Den of the Bugbear is a good manland and also gives fast mana (yes I know I just roasted islet for not making black mana, but the added utility from Den is worth it imo).

2 Tourach, Dread Cantor should absolutely be in the sideboard, he's very strong against UWx and 4c blink.

Hey, good work in progress so far for a first deck with an interesting concept.

Command Tower and Arcane Signet are two staples to consider adding. Consider adding some flying creatures who can disrupt your opponent to help you do keep the monarch and some repeatable sources of flying creatures?

Blind Obedience can be opponent mana rock ramp disruption and shuts off haste of opponent's creatures who might want to attack you. With Cunning Rhetoric opponent may not want to attack you because then you'll exile card from top of their library.


The mana curve is very high here since you have so many 5 CMC, 6 CMC or higher cards. Cutting some of them for lower CMC cards and more ramp would help gameplay. More two drop mana rocks can make it easier/faster to cast Marchesa. Since she's a 4 CMC creature then a turn two mana rock can potentially let you cast her turn three if you make your land drops.


Some lands to consider adding in place of some basic lands that are within your budget to improve the manabase:

If you're playing Dark Depths then consider Thespian's Stage? Stage is the land that combos with Depths to get Marit Lage. When you control Depths and Stage pay 2 mana to copy Depths with Stage. Stage becomes Depths with no ice counters on it and the legendary rule will take place since you can't control two legendary Depths at the same time. Choose to keep Stage and remove Depths. Since Stage has no ice counters it's saced to create Marit Lage.

If interested I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

I think this is great, I love the new take on infect. Most of my suggestions have to do with the manabase, I know you're running a fairly limited base but I would consider Inkmoth Nexus, just so you have one more option to get infect damage through along with Tainted Strike and Phyresis. I think you could also lose a Sunbaked Canyon and an Inspiring Vantage for a Silent Clearing, and either Fetid Heath or Graven Cairns, so you can turn red or white mana into more black sources.

How's your luck been in drawing creatures overall?
