Patron of the Vein

Creature — Vampire Shaman

Flying

When Patron of the Vein enters the battlefield, destroy target creature an opponent controls.

Whenever a creature an opponent controls dies, exile it and put a +1/+1 counter on each Vampire you control.

Hey dbpunk thanks for the advice!

I don't feel that my meta allowed me to use Mycoloth or Bloodspore Thrinax to much Value, always got removed before any profit on my behalf and were always too slow/too much mana for them.

Avenger of Zendikar and Abhorrent Overlord are good idea's, i'd probably opt for Abhorrent Overlord over Avenger, though with me trying to trim down the mana curve for this deck and help make it flow better and have more synergy, I doubt either will find a place in the deck, unfortunately.

Patron of the Vein is there purely for the "Whenever a creature an opponent controls dies, exile it" wording. Since i can always guarantee forcing opponents to sac their boards, It's good anti graveyard decks for opponents.

Some Persist creatures may be an idea, but idk which ones i'd run. I don't just want purely exp booster persist creatures, I like having decent ETB effects or something that helps my board.

Probably should get Avenger of Zendikar or Abhorrent Overlord . Both do great work in a BG deck. Also Mycoloth is great in this type of deck.

Since you're already running Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , you should also run some creatures with persist. You can also double down on that using Bloodspore Thrinax .

Also, since you only have 4 vampires including Patron of the Vein , it might be a good idea to switch it out for something else.

Nice Deck, Vampires are a good choice for a tribal deck! I only have a few suggestions, but even then they are sort of smaller less important things. First off, add some more tribal cards: Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Patron of the Vein , Rakish Heir , Bloodlord of Vaasgoth , Indulgent Aristocrat , and maybe Blade of the Bloodchief . However, Modern isn't the best tribal format. I would recommend switching your format to Legacy, which would allow the following great vampire cards: Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Urza's Incubator , Vanquisher's Banner , Herald's Horn , Sanctum Seeker , Legion Lieutenant , etc. You could also add Bloodstained Mire , Smoldering Marsh , Dragonskull Summit , Canyon Slough , Blackcleave Cliffs , and maybe Foreboding Ruins . But nonetheless, most of these aren't legal in modern (Which is the Format your deck is in as of now) so I would recommend switching. If you find these cards and suggestions helpful, please upvote my deck: A Deal With the Devil EDH. Thanks, hope these help, and have a nice day.

Anowon, the Ruin Sage Elenda, the Dusk Rose Captivating Vampire Vanquisher's Banner Coat of Arms Bloodlord of Vaasgoth Door of Destinies Indulgent Aristocrat Patron of the Vein Legion Lieutenant Malakir Bloodwitch Herald's Horn Sanctum Seeker . These are all good Vampire Tribal or Any Tribal Cards. I would not add Damping Sphere, it has nothing to relate to vampires, along with Nihil spell bomb. If you need to take out cards to add the cards above, I would maybe only have 3 Blades of the Bloodchief, 2 Duress's, and maybe do the same for the non tribal vampires. However, some of the cards above are not legal in modern, so if I were you, I would switch to legacy or vintage which give you a wider variety of choices.

Love that deckname :D

I accidentally only just yesterday build my own massacre girl, but with a little twist: I included lots of discard so my opponents have to choose if they keep their cards in hand to have them discarded, or if they commit to the board and run into the visible wipe from the command zone.

Yours is very cool as well though. Just kill everything. Swarm of Bloodflies and Patron of the Vein might be very useful for you. Also how about Akroan Horse ?

Agent of Erebos fair enough, build to your meta.

You may find that other cards like Deadeye Tracker give you a bit more utility though. card draw and giving itself counters are nice upsides.

My main concern with the Cephalid Constable is that you don't really have any ways to give him evasion, so actually dealing combat damage to get the trigger seems somewhat difficult.

Patron of the Vein If you need the grave hate then I suppose, but CMC6 is fairly high up there for this. You might be better served with a lower CMC method of dealing with this issue, especially where creature removal is fairly easy to come by with cards like Plaguecrafter Fleshbag Marauder Grave Pact and hundreds of black removal spells. Withered Wretch might be a better option in some ways, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is definitely a better bang for your buck.

instead of Dross Harvester you may want something you have a bit more control over such as Wurmcoil Engine or Basilisk Collar that way you can directly manage your life total rather than letting it change by happenstance. not to mention that wurmcoil is extremely good when you can repeatedly sacrifice it.
