Martyr of Dusk Discussion

So I want to start by saying everything in my previous comment still stands, so I won't go over anything I already discussed there. That said, let's take a look at what you've changed.

I really want to get some Priest of the Forgotten Gods for the deck. I’ve considered Judith, the Scourge Diva and Cruel Celebrant but initially dismissed the life drain effect since I like be more aggressive with cards like Falkenrath Aristocrat . I’ll definitely look into getting a few copies of them both.
I thought about using Fatal Push , but for my playgroup meta Tragic Slip is going to more effective against my groups Dino and indestructible focused decks. Spark Harvest replaced Bone Splinters since my playgroup uses a lot of planeswalkers. Dreadbore could be good so I’ll keep an eye out for those as well. My main goal is to get two more copies of Falkenrath Aristocrat and focus on sacrificing the humans like Doomed Traveler and Hunted Witness . Seraph of the Scales is awesome, but is also out of my budget. I like having Martyr of Dusk just in case my opponent has a way around Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet ’s zombie engine and it’s saved me a few times. Same with Shamble Back but I am looking for a better alternative since I don’t always have a creature ready to exile for it.
Thank you for the recommendations!

Personally I would consider using 2 or 3 copies of Judith, the Scourge Diva and a playset of Priest of Forgotten Gods . If the budget is not an issue a playset of Bloodghast would work splendid in this deck, though you would need to rework your mana base with some fetches and shocklands.E.g Blood Crypt , Bloodstained Mire , Sacred Foundry and Arid Mesa . Perhaps 3 Seraph of the Scales instead of Hunted Witness and more copies of Cartel Aristocrat as your sac outlets. I would remove Shamble Back and Spark Harvest completely. I would use 3 Fatal Push and 2 Dreadbore instead as a removal package. In place of Utter End and Raise the Alarm I would use playset of Cruel Celebrant or Blood Artist as the main drain engine of the deck. I would also run Tithe Taker in place of Martyr of Dusk . As for the sideboard 2 copies of Grafdigger's Cage for graveyard hate, 2 copies Vandalblast for artifact hate, Bedevil and an extra copy of Anguished Unmaking

KibaAlpha Thanks, i took a look and there are some cards that i find interesting, mainly as sac material because i think i neeed some more and also better ones. I might change Dutiful Attendant for Orzhov Enforcer and Black Cat for Martyr of Dusk . It also makes me consider even more changing Shadows of the Past for Falkenrath Noble since i was considering that already.

two of these drop tokens on death, and one does damage. We can also add in Seraph of the Scales for a total of three creatures to sacrifice.

Carrier Thrall gives overall 3 bodies for , if you really want all of these to be Vampires then there's Martyr of Dusk HOWEVER, we'd be better off with sticking to as much as possible, that's why I recommend the former creature more.
About changes you've made: basically speaking you've changed nothing FUNCTIONALLY while significantly lowering the CMC of cards you use, so the damage from Ad Nauseam / Bolas's Citadel is lowered in the long run, which means more card advantage from them or more life as a resource to spend. There's only one word that can describe this - "marvelous" :)
Another thought that hit me this morning - do you really need Land Tax here? With 7 basics it might very fast run out of cards search for and when cast later in a game doesn't provide enough immediate results (if any at all). There's Chrome Mox for about the same price and no matter when you use it it's great or if you want huge start of casting something big with Winter Orb on the field then there are the rituals I've already mentioned.

Thank you very much, MontaukMonster
I plan on using my 1-drop Duskborne Skymarcher in the beginning, 2-drops Martyr of Dusk or more Duskborne Skymarchers, and saving up enough mana so that I can counterspell with Negate or especially Essence Capture which would give me time to gather more Lands and give +1/+1 to whoever needs it. Then hopefully I will be able to cast, most of all Benalish Marshal , or Radiant Destiny which would be somewhat helpful as long as I still have some Vampires on the field, or Queen's Commission or even Squire's Devotion . As long as I have some 1/1 Vampires with Lifelink, I'll be able to block enemy creatures without trample for some life and more time for Lands. The main problem I have is Mana cost, as most of my cards are 3 and 4 drops: Unbreakable Formation , Sanguine Glorifier , Benalish Marshal , Radiant Destiny , Squire's Devotion , Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Queen's Commission . I'll have to change my deck entirely in order to make a better Azorius Deck as those are my main White Vampire cards to choose from.

Hi :), I first started with vampires and its a load of fun. not a bad vampire deck to start, although I have a couple suggestions that I hope may be able to help out.
The first suggestion I have is a card called Radiant Destiny which is very useful if your going the full on vampire creature route. 4x Radiants would be very well what you need to help those vampires to become stronger.
My biggest concern is your mana curve, capping at 5 being the most is similar to the opposite of what vampires are kinda meant to be. Quick and deadly.
Maybe try something more like this. Hope it helps out a bit more :)
(based on mana that is)
Thats about all i can think of. I don't think it completely adds up to 60 cards but slightly more but vampires do not need lots of lands because they-re generally fast but around 20-22 lands should work hopefully. 24 is best to if you can find stuff to take out extra.
I hope some of this helps out from an previous vampire player. I wish you the best of luck and hope the matches will play out well :)
