Mana Echoes


Whenever a creature enters the battlefield, you may gain for each creature you control that shares a creature type with it.

VampRamped on A Vampire Storm *Primer*

6 days ago


Wow those are some good questions let me do my best to answer them. Yes I have an integrated list so I enjoy having the ability to have the option to do either strategy in a game. A more dedicated list is going to be marginally better but because the storm strategy only needs you to play Mana Echoes and Phyrexian Altar you do not really do anything that negatively impacts the aggressive gameplan.

I have had no problems playing Urza's Saga in this list my mana base is very good even without all the dual lands (I only have scrubland) The way to see urza's saga is a very versatile tutor that gives access to mana in sol ring if you really need it or Skullclamp and Sensei's Divining Top which are excellent combo pieces.

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is good because my list has a few higher mana value vampires in the deck and cheating them into play is worth losing the vampire token in many cases. Additionally having the flexibility of gaining life and getting some attacking power or having a recurring removal spell are both quite good tools to have.

Scion of Opulence I have found actually carries it's weight very well. Helps out the storm lines if you do not have Phyrexian Altar yet by recouping colored mana in the storm lines. In aggro lines you can sac for mana in a pinch if you need to use a protection spell to save your board. A 3/1 body is also not bad for 3 mana to be aggressive with, and it is really great with Bloodghast so overall good card in my experience.

Signets are roughly as strong as talismans but the main advantage is that if you are going for the storm with just Mana Echoes and Skullclamp you can hit the signets off the draws and you can filter colorless off of Mana Echoes into more colored mana than what you get with the talismans.

Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle is ok he is in a vampire flex slot and I will frequently cut him for access to different vampires, he doesn't trigger off tokens but you usually have a nontoken vampire that is attacking. Even though his stats aren't great you usually have a lot of lords and sac outlets you want to use so the bodies are useful for both those occasions

Right now would admit Butcher of Malakir is on this list for fun he probably isn't that good especially if you are curving out with an aggro strategy. Bloodline necromancer however is good because you have great ETBs that you can recur in this deck in Champion of Dusk and Malakir Bloodwitch.

Shared Animosity is very good and definitely playable I'm only not playing it because it is not useful if you are storming off. Idol of Oblivion is too slow, and if I need card draw I will get Necropotence or Skullclamp as much stronger options. Protection spells are definitely better in more aggressive list but I play reanimator spells because they are strong with both strategies. I can sac my board for value in storm and then bring all the creatures back to net value, and also mass reanimation lets me spend all of my mana every turn and does not require me to hold up mana if I am worried about a board wipe. Though again I think you want to play a critical mass of protection spells in aggro of 5-7.

Thanks for the input and was nice to be able to engage with you

NV_1980 Good thoughts, thanks. Bontu's Monument and Mana Echoes have been underperforming recently. Chromatic Lantern is worth a shot. Black Market Connections seems like the best new option, as far as card draw goes, so I'm going to try that alongside Phyrexian Arena.

Because I didn't see them, I wanna recommend:

I do appreciate the variety of spells and associated "put demons on board" vibe. In response to your question about Kaya's Ghostform, the value can't be over-stated because no one is gonna Path to Exile or Swords to Plowshares that shit.

If protecting your bois is important maybe consider Swiftfoot Boots or Winged Boots.

Best of luck with your build!

Cool idea. I personally would build this more into Plant tribal than land shenanigans, but there are a few cards that I think would work really well in your build, too:

  • Creeperhulk can pick up +1/+1 counters from your general and buff up your plant tokens to have another go-wide pump.
  • Arachnoform, Amorphous Axe, and/or Runed Stalactite can let you put counters on any of your creatures with your general. Same with Maskwood Nexus, but that option is a little slower.
  • Mana Echoes can be some nuts ramp when you're making lots of plants simultaneously.
  • Coat of Arms and Obelisk of Urd can give some great static pumps.
  • Tribal Unity can give a surprise knockout with your existing ramp and go-wide strats. It also pumps creatures your opponents' control and can be a cheeky dogpile play when there's a dedicated tribal or token strat at the table.

TheOfficialCreator Thanks for the great suggestions I'd like to keep the Goblin tribal flavor but Impact Tremors and Mana Echoes are fantasic additions.

Impact Tremors, Witty Roastmaster, and Mana Echoes are all good additions imo.

Mana Echoes would be really funny with all the Kobolds dropping. Might also have the potential to go infinite if you have a sack outlet and something like Chromatic Orrery.

Jadar, Ghoulcaller of Nephalia is a card I've seen cropping up a lot lately as well. It seems to be pretty decent, creating a consistent slew of Zombies. Ophiomancer is another decent option.

Triumph of the Hordes would make dealing lethal damage more than twice as easy, and it would work well with Doubling Season (another good card for your deck).

Cultist of the Absolute is a massive stat boost.

Mass Hysteria might be able to replace Hammer, but I'm not sure if you want to risk making your opponents have that option.

Finally, Garruk's Uprising gives some good card advantage plus the added bonus of trample which is something Prossh lacks. Rancor could also work to the same effect.

Fervor -> Mass Hysteria?

Also, Rite of Flame, Pyretic Ritual, Desperate Ritual, Mana Echoes, and Simian Spirit Guide can help you ramp. Mana Echoes is really only great with X-burn spells and such, though, so it's not for every Krenko deck. It would be fire with Staff of Domination, though ^^
