Oathsworn Vampire Discussion

Omniscience_is_life on Steep Price to Pay (Dina, Soul Steeper)

BrassLord goodness gracious this'll take a second to go through!

Crypt Ghast seems perfect, that one's going in. Urborg --why not?

Mox Amber seems like it would just draw hate, most of my ramp sits at two anyway so I don't think it accelerates me too much.

Veinwitch Coven looks like fun, I should be able to find a place for it.

Oathsworn Vampire is ideal, 100% going in.

As far as the AltarMantle combo goes, I think I like it! I'll use Callous Bloodmage .

Sensei's Divining Top sure is a good card. I always forget about it, because--to be quite frankly honest--I don't want to buy one. But this is my no-holds-barred deck, so it should definitely go in!

I'm definitely trying to keep the average cmc down as much as possible, but I'll consider Savra .

Thank you so much for taking all that time to make such a detailed comment!

Crypt Ghast and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would be a good way to generate a bunch of mana in addition to getting lifegain triggers from extort! With any 2cmc commander Mox Amber is a decent ramp spell for 0! Also I saw Veinwitch Coven put in a lot of work at prerelease!

Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Scion of the Swarm also seems to gel really well with your deck, getting HUGE with lifegain triggers and also providing a big body for your commander's other ability! Something like Sanctum Seeker also seems like it'd work, doubling down on your commander's trigger.

Oathsworn Vampire also seems like it should go infinite somehow in your deck, I'm trying to find a way!

I don't know if I don't see it, but you have both the altar and Deathmantle in the deck, which also goes infinite with any creature that can make tokens, something like Grave Titan or anything with Fabricate like Marionette Master , which if you can make enough tokens can get you infinite ETBS as well as make your commander infinitely big!

You're also running both Aetherflux and Bolas's Citadel, you can make it an infinite with Sensei's Divining Top , where you cast it then do the draw trigger to put the top on top of the library, then cast it again, all while gaining life from the Resovior. Though running any combos comes down to preferance!

While a little more CMC Noxious Gearhulk Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper and Savra, Queen of the Golgari all seem to be what you'd like in the deck! And if you lean into the sacrifice, Black Market can be another decent way to get a lot of tokens!

VampRamped on A Vampire Storm *Primer*

Gorbah To answer the first question it is very powerful, as a part of the storm combination you can win immediately if you have 5 mana available Skullclamp or Heirloom Blade in play and Mana Echoes , Phyrexian Altar , 1 mana vampire in your hand, otherwise if you don't have Phyrexian Altar you can probably win the game if you just play mana echoes and it makes it all the way around the table as long Skullclamp or Heirloom Blade + any sac outlet is out.

Entomb is a new inclusion that I'm trying out that you can use to get Oathsworn Vampire to combo, or just get Bloodghast , or if you have Bloodline Necromancer or Nullpriest of Oblivion you can get any vampire you want right into play.

VampRamped on Edgar Aggro

2 months ago

This is a decent Edgar Markov list I just had a few questions and comments about choices

  1. You are playing swords to plowshares and path to exile in your deck what creatures are you worried about dealing with.

2.I know you have in maybe board but for 1 mana more than Vampire Aristocrat you get a much better card in Falkenrath Aristocrat as it has much better stats, evasion, and protection in addition the new Immersturm Predator is also a very good vampire sac outlet that is targeted graveyard hate.

3.What is your goal with this deck you say it's more and more a combo deck but it still has vampire aggro elements of it. While I think having multiple strategies within Edgar Markov is actually a good strategy with Edgar Markov. For example not only is Oathsworn Vampire a component of a decent combo but is actually pretty decent for the aggro beatdown Worldgorger Dragon while technically part of a more efficient combo is actually terrible for your vampire aggro deck. My suggestion would be to remove Worldgorger Dragon from your deck. doing so also allows to remove Heir of Falkenrath  Flip and Olivia's Dragoon which are not very good cards and are only really in for worldgorger in the first place.

Things I like about your deck

  1. Living Death : I think it is arguable the best card in an Edgar Markov deck not only an immediate board reset after a wipe but with a sac outlet you get a one-sided board wipe with all the effects of the sac + death triggers

  2. Multiple win cons: I did sort of mention this before but you also seem to recognize that Edgar Markov is a deck that can benefit exceedingly from a multitude of win conditions. This I think is because Edgar Markov identity is a momentum-based strategy, and thus is at its worst when your ground to a halt, or when you divert attention away from building momentum, which is also why I asked about your choice of strictly creature removal.

If you wanted to get some insight into how I personally balance multiple strategies in my personal deck, in addition to some very interesting vampire combo's I will put a link here.

A bit of a long comment for you to chew some ideas over. I'm just going to throw out some cards that work for the aristocrats strategy that I think the commander would work well with. Then I'll give you some combos that could work here. Most of the combos rely heavily on white cards, so I think they are all pretty cheap. I'm sure there's a lot more that you could use, but these are the ones that come to my mind.

Pitiless Plunderer , Sifter of Skulls , Nether Traitor , Pawn of Ulamog

Recursion

Reveillark , Karmic Guide , Sun Titan , Gift of Immortality , Angelic Renewal , Luminous Broodmoth , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord , Nim Deathmantle

Vampires

I'm sure these fit into combos, but I'll leave them to you to evaluate.
Marauding Blight-Priest , Famished Paladin Epicure of Blood Defiant Bloodlord Cliffhaven Vampire Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose

Reveillark can also return another small creature to the battlefield in addition to Karmic Guide.

Omniscience_is_life on Altar Combos!

Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are some of the most combo-tastic cards in EDH, so I want to see just how many of those combos we can put together here. Who knows? I might build a deck with all of them afterward :)

I'll start: Oathsworn Vampire, Thalia's Geistcaller, and Phyrexian Altar=infinite etb/ltb triggers.

To make the thread more exciting, let's make it so you can only post one combo at a time, and have to wait for at least 2 others to comment before saying another. Please read the comments prior to yours for no repeats!

I would recommend replacing Ruinous Ultimatum with some easier to cast removal: Curtains Fall, Ashes to Ashes, Heliod's Intervention, By Force, Crush Contraband, Anguished Unmaking. Springleaf Drum is solid ramp. I don't see what's the point of Phyrexian Altar when you aren't running either Oathsworn Vampire or Cloudstone Curio. I would have several more suggestions, but rather then write them all, I'm just going to direct you to my list: Edgar Aggro
