Nighthawk Scavenger

Creature — Vampire Rogue

Flying, deathtouch, lifelink

Nighthawk Scavenger's power is equal to 1 plus the number of card types among cards in your opponents' graveyards.

Cool build! I see Vampire Nighthawk much more frequently than Nighthawk Scavenger in EDH builds - is there a reason for this? Nighthawk Scavenger seems like a much better card to me, but I’m also pretty new to MTG.

HelloGrends27, I 100% agree! I have a Pioneer version of the deck that uses Nighthawk Scavenger and Vampire of the Dire Moon and they make the deck much better! I am curious to see what other Vampires we see in Standard with the next few sets!

For Standard, I have been trying out Falkenrath Forebear instead of Voldaren Bloodcaster  Flip and seems to work better.

It’s a shame that Nighthawk Scavenger isn’t standard legal to replace Midnight Assassin (even Vampire Nighthawk would be an upgrade)

I have replaced Nighthawk Scavenger with Verrak, Warped Sengir; I understand that this deck does not contain any cards that use payment of life as a cost, but he better synergies with Deathbringer Liege than did the scavenger and he also provides a legendary creature to serve as the face card of this deck.

Hey there you two, thanks for responding! I have changed it to be default now, but that is a good trick to know!

As for your suggestions, Blue, yeah Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is fantastic, I see why it's an expensive card. As for Desecration Demon, I may need you to sell me on it a bit. I just filled in my 4 mana drops on my curve with Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Rankle, Master of Pranks as card draw, but I'm open to suggestions for that slot. However, it seems like Spawn of Mayhem would be a better flying beatdown creature for the same mana or less (with Spectacle), right?

Also, I have 4x of both Vampire Nighthawk AND Nighthawk Scavenger, that's the core of the deck, those two as well as Vampire of the Dire Moon and Gifted Aetherborn.

I really like the sound of mono black devotion, what would that look like? What cards go into it? I assume Gray Merchant of Asphodel is a 4x of as a finisher, but what else?

Man it’s really hard to tell what’s going on based off the way you have your deck organized, may I suggest just using the default sorting method?

As for finishers if budget wasn’t a concern then Sheoldred, the Apocalypse is where it’s at right now

Since it is though how about Desecration Demon?

You could probably swap Vampire Nighthawk for Nighthawk Scavenger

Honestly I’d just build mono black devotion

Welcome to the club, RockIV!

With a full playset of Phyrexian Obliterators, I'm going to assume you have good access to cards. The new Sheoldred, the Apocalypse feels like it could fit in well here.

Your land count is on the low side, I would add maybe three more. If you have the budget and want to get fancy, Cabal Coffers would be a good addition. Otherwise, basic Swamps work perfectly well.

Feed the Swarm is another removal option that extends your reach to enchantments.

On the maybeboard, Vampire Nighthawk got an upgrade in Nighthawk Scavenger.

I can offer more thoughts, but I'd like to know what kind of decks you regularly go up against.

Salutations, multimedia! So sorry for getting back to this so late, but thank you very much for this well thought-out and highly informative feedback on my deck! :D

Right off the bat, this is gonna be difficult if I'm more familiar with MTG Arena and need to explain anything. So I apologize in advance seeming long-winded at times! ;^w^

Regarding 1x and 2x vs. 4x, lots of the Rare and Mythic cards require Wildcard tokens to spend on cards to get multiple copies of, and I only have a select few of those tokens whilst owning a crap-ton of Common and Uncommon Wildcard tokens (but if there's one thing we all learn in TCGs, unless you're rich, you won't win with bottom-of-barrel stuff. .< And well, being a guy who can't afford anything anyway (unless I'm fortunate every other month to afford an online Mastery Pass [which basically means I get more rewards the more I play online], I'm used to being poor. ;u.u).

Hey, personally, I wouldn't even mind high budget either or even medium budget. Just anything to give me an idea what it'll take to have me never suck at the game again. 'Course that's too much to ask considering this game is always constantly changing, especially for Standard. Not that that's a bad thing mind you, it's just hard to keep up all the time.

Tribe? Reason? I never really go for any reason other than going with archetypes and sets that are cool in art and effect. Lame, I know, but I don't care. X3 lol I just wanna have fun! And a good way to have fun in this game is to win a lot from understanding everything. I understand how effects are played, yet it's always against me 90% of the time, and I get so easily discouraged and frustrated no matter what deck I put together. :( But as far as reasons for playing Vampires... I guess I wanna gain life like how they do so by sucking blood and swarm the field? 'Cause, y'know, bats? lol Even with wuffs/werewuffs, wanna play them 'cause they're cute and badass. lol

With that said, yes, I'd like to believe Edgar's pretty darn decent even if I can't have more than one of him on the battlefield (learned that the hard way one time with another deck). And well, I have that Instant in there just in case I come across any card that I need to take down even if I gotta lose a creature through battle along the way even if that deck I'm up against isn't an aggro deck (I assume aggros have 1-2 toughness each time???). But okay then, so sideboard only for Vengeance? Huh... Thought it'd be praised.

See, I didn't see Socialite as useful. O.o If I wanted a Vampire dealing with counters, I'd rely on Edgar or perhaps Tenured Inkcaster or evenSlaughter Specialist. Besides, I thought Uncommons would be like Commons and let me down, especially if there are four of them. o: And here's the thing: Socialite gives those counters out if I made the opponent lose life. What if that didn't happen? What if it doesn't happen for the whole game? A waste. >.< Harvester makes sense kinda, I just never figured putting four in would be better. O.o

Four of Florian? Again, what if I'm not able to discard him? D:

Again, I never know the different between any Vampire factions/families and stuff. They're all the same to me. TwT lol And as for Bloodcaster, she's got, like the worst toughness. I need to protect her somehow. D: Four of them having the same 1 toughness would be difficult to maintain, especially if the opponent is all Reach. Plus as much as Pit Fighter would be brutally beneficial to wanna get more cards in the hand, she's still just as frail as Bloodcaster. >.< You sure that's safe?

Okay, so from what I understand, don't have Vamp Tribe and Vamp Support in the same deck? How come? I thought it'd be more beneficial that way??? Okay, that first creature I can kinda understand having more of, especially if I have a lot of other Vamps with 1-2 power! And my only defense for Scavenger and why I love her is not only does she have a helpful lifelink in a pinch, but when combined with Odric, Blood-Cursed, you get a slew of Blood Tokens at once which is extremely grateful to have come to fruition, especially if I have other Vamps with different mechanics on them!

Edgar after that other reasoning with splash lands... Okay, that makes sense.

Dispute won't work for me going into the next season after this month sadly; the set it's from will be put to Historic then and therefore unusable in Standard. Absence I was fortunately well on top of, but are you sure Grasp would be good, too? I mean, I lose life as a result. And if I can't gain life with my Vampires, then what? o:

Courtyard, eh? Okay, well... I'll see what I can do then as far as those lands.

Still, I'm a little concerned with these choices overall. Do I go for tribe or support? And how will I know they'll give me a better win rate than what I'm enduring now? ;w; For the record, I'm not looking to be a Spike or anything, I'm more of a Timmy-Mel mix; not aiming to be a pro, but I'm tired of losing and wanna win enough each set to at least get base Platinum rewards. X3 lol

Thank you so much for getting back to me as far as my Vampire deck, multimedia! I'd very much love your help on the other decks I've got on my profile if it's at all possible, please! >w<
