Witch's Clinic: Make Demonlord Belzenlok safe for some extra mana. If you want to, you can target Planeswalker commanders with this, or even noncreature ones like a dormant Purphoros, God of the Forge . Put it on an enemy commander for brownie points?

Purphoros, God of the Forge is worth running. Every vamp you cast will dome each opponent for 4.

Not a bad start but there's 3 areas I immediately notice need some work. Finishers, draw, and board protection.

Finishers: First off, drop Cathar's Crusade and don't add Door of Destinies. Both do nothing for your current board, require gas after they come down, and require a hefty mana investment for an aggro deck. Shared Animosity , Reconnaissance (2nd post dedicated entirely to this card), Purphoros, God of the Forge , Cover of Darkness , and Mirror Entity .

Draw: Twilight Prophet , Skullclamp , Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Herald's Horn . I run all these in addition to what you already have.

Board Protection: Don't overextend into the first boardwipe and lose! Boros Charm , Teferi's Protection , Flawless Maneuver , and Scapegoat are your best options but there's also budget ones like Rootborn Defenses , Unbreakable Formation , etc.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Out: Purphoros, God of the Forge In: Peregrine Drake

Purphoros is probably plenty good in this deck but I needed him in another deck and peregrine drake can provide some good mana surge

I do enjoy a good mana sink...

This card is inspired way back from OG Theros, when the Minotaur invaded Akros during Xenagos' scheme for ascension. Not gonna lie, it's essentially Flurry of Horns on an enchantment, but this makes it replayable.

Assault on Akros


When Assault on Akros enters the battlefield, create two 2/3 red Minotaur creature tokens with haste.

Minotaur you control attack each turn if able.

: Create two 2/3 red Minotaur creature tokens with haste.

Okay so the enchantment is the same mana value as the sorcery, but it costs an additional which makes it slightly more restrictive in play. Then, the activated ability also costs the same, but now it has another additional , making it even more restrictive.

The idea is that you get more if you're invested more. Mono-red decks won't struggle but others will. It's sort of a means to balance it over regular ramp methods.

I'm not sure if it would work the way I intended, but I think it's better than adding +, + or even a .

Beautiful card for a Purphoros, God of the Forge , especially comboing with Mana Echoes . You can go infinite if you have enough Minotaur on the field and either a color-fixer such as Prismite or Chromatic Orrery .

Another mana sink, and explain how you'd abuse it. Bonus points awarded if you stay away from .

Purphoros, God of the Forge deserves a spot. Make every vamp you cast dome each opponent for 4. It also makes Scapegoat double as a finisher w/ Purph out.

I'm guessing you've already seen it but here's a link to my list. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires
