Right, "for each card drawn this way" is different because it actually does care about the result. Similar to effects that destroy some things and then have another effect based on how many of those things actually went to the graveyard ( Terastodon , Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , etc.).

Does Ghave, Guru of Spores have a "specific deck type, as in is he better as a combo oriented deck or straight out mid range ish token style deck? Or both?

I ask because I appearently have a copy of him, and I used to play black white tokens in modern back around 2015( obviously meta is way different now). Is ghave geared toward generic token generation, a few planes walkers, and anthem affects, or is he "better" as a sacrifice combo deck?

Imput please. I have cards laying around from modern and standard back then like... Spectral Procession , Lingering Souls , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Bitterblossom Sorin, Lord of Innistrad etc etc to name a few. I also understand cards like Grave Pact are good with him.

Vindicate from Eternal Masters, Mortify from Sorin vs Tibalt, Anguished Unmaking , Avacyn, Angel of Hope not a vampire but for Sorin tribal not vampire tribal it's a must, Mark of the Vampire from Sorin vs Tibalt, Heirloom Blade , Blood Tribute and if your going Sorin tribal i would recommend using Sorin, Grim Nemesis , Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord or Sorin, Solemn Visitor as your oathbreaker but if your going vampire tribal than Sorin Markov is fine.

Seems like a big planeswalker suite. I am generally not a fan of too many planeswalkers in commander decks unless they are really support a path to our wincon. Individually, they are all good cards, but I think you could pull at least 3 of them and get more token advantage with Teysa. For example, Ogre Slumlord , Pawn of Ulamog , Requiem Angel would all be solid adds. Personally, I'd get this deck down to 2-3 planeswalkers. Elspeth, Sun's Champion is an auto-include. Liliana, Dreadhorde General would be better than any other Liliana in the deck. For that last planeswalker spot I'd pick a Sorin - either Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad would work very well. All, IMO, of course :).

I have several suggestions for you. I'll try to break it down by category.

First, card draw: Herald's Horn , Dark Prophecy , Necropotence , and Greed .

Finisher: Reconnaissance (2nd post just for this card). I'd replace Door of Destinies... it does nothing for you current board, costs a ton of mana in aggro, and requires gas to get it to do anything.

Boardwipes: You want versatility here so they aren't dead draws. Merciless Eviction and Austere Command are you best bets.

Spot Removal: Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares over GftT and Vraska's Contempt.

Tutor: Diabolic Intent . Demonic Tutor #2 for a lot less $.

PW: Sorin, Lord of Innistrad over your current Sorin. This is mainly to offset the life loss from my suggested draw cards.

Suggested Cuts:

Throne of the God-Pharoah/Wound Reflection - definition of win-more... they do literally nothing when you're losing.

Entomb/Animate Dead/Reanimate/Strands of Night - You have like 3 ways to recur whatever you bin and the whole reanimator thing feels like an afterthought.

Walking Ballista- This just feels out of place, you aren't exactly ramping here.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's also over 130 comments worth of ideas etc. to sift through. Edgar's Dega Vampires

honestly, buddy. I think you are trying to stretch this too much. I would first try to cut down to 60 or closer by focusing on the main strategy, which seems to be the Presence of Gond + Midnight Guard combo. From there, you need to focus on how to protect that combo. 5 colors is not going to help this too much. Green and White are essential. I think you do need three colors here. Blue is an obvious choice to help protect the combo and supply draw to get to your peices, or, you could go Black. I'd personally go black because it allows you to still use Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and flashback a card you don't even have here, Lingering Souls . It also does allow you to protect your combo by giving you access to Duress and Distress . If it were me, I'd have a skeleton of this deck looking like this Nick's Tokens. Haven't figured it out too much, but you'd also want a 2-4 pieces of removal in it too.

Enral on Oathbreaker Estimated Tier List

I'm curious why Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is in the A list but Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is in the B list? I feel like they should swap positions because Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord with Entomb in the commandzone is very strong and can lead to easy assembling of any combos. This is my current list and is performing pretty well.
