Indulgent Aristocrat Discussion

TheVectornaut on Black and White - please help!

To stay more in black, I would consider some sort of vampire sacrifice, counters, and/or lifedrain strategy. Your black cards that could work well in such a deck would be Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Embodiment of Agonies , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Mortician Beetle , Souls of the Faultless , Castigate , Disentomb , Gerrard's Verdict , Revival / Revenge , Despark , and Grim Return . Most of the other black cards are at least playable as well. The only two I'd cut in most circumstances are Underworld Dreams and In Garruk's Wake . The former needs more build-around while the latter just costs too much to be a consistent boardwipe.

Cards I'd look at adding for such a build might be Gatekeeper of Malakir , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Sangromancer , Dictate of Erebos , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Victim of Night , Indulgent Aristocrat , Pawn of Ulamog , Grim Haruspex , Silversmote Ghoul , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Malakir Cullblade , Blood Artist , Urge to Feed , Feast of Blood , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Archangel of Thune , Cruel Celebrant , Drana's Emissary , Indulging Patrician , Malakir Bloodwitch , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanctum Seeker , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Pious Evangel  Flip.

As a side note, to go infinite with Sanguine Bond , Vizkopa Guildmage , or Vito, the card you need is actually Exquisite Blood which is unfortunately quite expensive.

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 .

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.

Hey, good work for your first Commander deck on a budget. You have several nice cards, but also many stinkers :)

There's 2x Inscription of Ruin which you can't have in Commander. Jungle Shrine has green in it's card color identity thus you can't play it because Edgar isn't green. With Edgar you want to lower the mana curve with more one/two/three drop Vamps. Edgar and Coat of Arms are the high CMC cards you want to cast, but before you cast them you want a more established army of Vamps which means the majority of the Vamps you play should be one, two or three drops. Low CMC Vamps are easier to cast thus you get faster token value from Edgar's eminence.

These one drop Vamps are fine plays in the early game while also being useful in the later parts of a game too.

Drana is the most expensive price Vamp I'm suggesting, it's worth $5. Most of these Vamps have repeatable effects or flying which is helpful evasion for attacking in Commander. More low CMC Vamps makes Skullclamp better and it's one of your best sources of repeatable value to get ahead or recover to draw more Vamps; Open the Armory can tutor for it.


Consider more budget dual lands that ETB untapped?

Ancestry and Outpost always ETB tapped, but that's fine since next turn they can make any color of mana you need to cast cards. On a budget this color fixing is helpful.

I offer more advice including what cards to cut. Would you like more advice? Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice first brew of Edgar.

Consider adding a few more black one drop Vamps? Knight of the Ebon Legion and Indulgent Aristocrat are one drops who can be good with aggro or midrange Vamp strategies. Cards you could cut for these are Mortify and Tithe Drinker.

Diabolic Intent is another tutor to consider adding replacing New Blood. Ruinous Ultimatum wrecks your opponents in multiplayer Commander, it could replace Fumigate. Champion of Dusk's ETB effect is excellent draw with eminence, it could replace Falkenrath Noble. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is good with aggro and midrange Vamp strategies especially with Edgar, it could replace Dark Impostor.


Consider adding some more dual lands that can ETB untapped turn one to make black and some dual lands that can make white to replace some Plains?

Lands to consider cutting for these are 3x Plains, 1x Mountain and Reliquary Tower.

Good luck with your deck.

Thanks again for your help. When I first started with this deck I wanted something aggressive and ended up playing my hand very quickly, which is why I needed Asylum Visitor and then Stromkirk Condemned to capitalize on that. But I'm not sure if it's working as well as it could, so I will definitely try out some cards you suggested!

I want to avoid an aristocrats type deck, and I didn't want a deck that only plays small creatures and then buffs, I wanted a little more variety but still competitive.

I'd love to include Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet but unfortunately, he breaks my budget. I'm only hesitant with Indulgent Aristocrat because I never really find the creatures I want to sacrifice besides Bloodghast...

I've been thinking about the auto-includes for monoblack vamps in Modern.

4 Bloodghast, 4 Gifted Aetherborn, 4 Gatekeeper of Malakir, 4 Knight of the Ebon Legion is a base to build from.

Viscera Seer is absolutely amazing for more midrange-y builds (not strictly necessary but he's a very good card, ditto for Indulgent Aristocrat) and I'd go for 4 Vampire Nocturnus and some mix of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and/or Champion of Dusk if you're looking to capitalize on Sorin.
