Fair point on Stromkirk Captain and Rakish Heir!

Do you ultimate Sorin, Vampire Lord often enough to be worth the slot? If not, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord might cool for getting out any of the Mana Value >3 vampires. He also includes some fun lifegain, too.

Thank you, Vessiliana! For your second comment, I hadn't seen Malakir Bloodwitch, but it seems like a great inclusion! As far as Licia, Sanguine Tribune goes, I've found her to be a very good commander. Using cards like Chaplain's Blessing allows you to get her out as early as turn three, as you reduce her cost to just . In addition, some of the red cards are very fun to use, with cards like Stromkirk Captain, Rakish Heir, and Stensia Masquerade boosting all your other vamps.

Hey, nice budget version of Edgar.

You have the right idea with wanting to cast Vamps quick to take advantage of eminence, but the manabase also needs to match this strategy. There's too many lands that will always ETB tapped which reduces the consistency of casting Vamps quick. More dual lands that can ETB untapped would speed up game play.

Some budget land upgrades to consider:


Some other budget cards to consider adding:

Higher CMC Vamps as less needed because you have Edgar who's the six drop you want to cast more than the others, but Necropolis Regent is a budget second. Like Edgar, Regent is also good with a Vamp swam as well as with Edgar and other flying Vamps.


Some cards to consider cutting:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, good work for your first Commander deck on a budget. You have several nice cards, but also many stinkers :)

There's 2x Inscription of Ruin which you can't have in Commander. Jungle Shrine has green in it's card color identity thus you can't play it because Edgar isn't green. With Edgar you want to lower the mana curve with more one/two/three drop Vamps. Edgar and Coat of Arms are the high CMC cards you want to cast, but before you cast them you want a more established army of Vamps which means the majority of the Vamps you play should be one, two or three drops. Low CMC Vamps are easier to cast thus you get faster token value from Edgar's eminence.

These one drop Vamps are fine plays in the early game while also being useful in the later parts of a game too.

Drana is the most expensive price Vamp I'm suggesting, it's worth $5. Most of these Vamps have repeatable effects or flying which is helpful evasion for attacking in Commander. More low CMC Vamps makes Skullclamp better and it's one of your best sources of repeatable value to get ahead or recover to draw more Vamps; Open the Armory can tutor for it.


Consider more budget dual lands that ETB untapped?

Ancestry and Outpost always ETB tapped, but that's fine since next turn they can make any color of mana you need to cast cards. On a budget this color fixing is helpful.

I offer more advice including what cards to cut. Would you like more advice? Good luck with your deck.

LordBlackblade, that is very good advice, although I do have another question; why is nudity in artwork from centuries ago acceptable and seen as classic art to be viewed by all, whereas nudity and sexuality from the current century is acceptable only to certain audiences?

Caerwyn, in that case, what is an appropriate way to express admiration for women? Also, how do you explain the artwork on Rakish Heir or Enthralling Victor?

If you're running red in modern, you should have a playset of Lightning Bolt. They're great removal, as is Terminate. Additionally, I think that Rakish Heir or Assault Strobe would be a great combo with the amount of attacking you're doing. Lastly, while I love Olivia Voldaren as much as the next guy, she requires an immense amount of mana to get going, and I feel like if you take her out, you can also get rid of Lash of Thorns, which both streamlines the deck and allows you to add in other cards and some removal in the mainboard. Hope this helps!

Pain Magnification, Fervor, Rakish Heir, and In the Web of War are all decent red cards I run in mine, with Larceny and Oppression to add to the discard theme.

You need more creatures to get more use out of the eminence effect of edgar. Perhaps try Bloodsworn Steward or Olivia Voldaren or Rakish Heir
