Tainted Field Discussion

I'd cut: Tainted Field and Tainted Peak . You need way more swamps for these to not be colorless lands a lot of the time. Basilisk Collar seems pretty marginal. It's just low impact, especially without pingers. Bloodcrazed Paladin also seems pretty bad. Diamond Knight isn't really playable in monocolor, much less three color. Cabal Paladin is also bad. Prismatic Lens isn't a good 2 cmc mana rock. Add the Talismans over it. Righteous Confluence is on theme, but also just kinda terrible. 3 knights for 5 mana at sorcery seems bad, even if you're exiling an enchantment as well. Steelclaw Lance seems too low impact as well.

I'd add: Nomad Outpost . And just generally, since so many of your knights have heavy color requirements, I think you need a very good mana base. I like all of Gus's suggestions for knights to add. Sylvia Brightspear should also probably be played if you're playing her partner. She's also solid with the swords of. Danitha Capashen, Paragon and Silverblade Paladin seem better than a bunch of your other knights. Balan, Wandering Knight also seems pretty decent. It's better than Twinblade Paladin at the very least. I think you should also be running a bunch of the good non-knight equipment creatures. Sram, Senior Edificer is great card advantage as is Stonehewer Giant . Merciless Eviction is imo a must play in w/b. Likewise, I think Sunforger is a must play in W/R

Hey, interesting version of Varina, but why only 21 Zombies?

DemMeowsephs has the right idea try to make all your sources of white and blue come from dual lands that can make black mana or fetch you black mana. Budget lands to consider adding:

Adding these dual lands can let you cut Plains and Islands for more Swamps. Or some could replace lackluster dual lands such as Tranquil Cove and Sejiri Refuge.

Zombies within the budget to consider adding:

Varina can gain you life which can make Command the Dreadhorde a powerful mass reanimation spell since it can also reanimate your opponents' creatures/Planeswalkers. Liliana, Death's Majesty is good for Zombies; all of her loyalty abilities are busted repeatable effects. It's helpful to play at least one Planeswalker if choosing to play Command the Dreadhorde.

Wonder and Filth can be good support since Varina is an enabler to get cards into your graveyard making these essentially free effects. Giving flying or Swampwalk to your Zombie horde can be game winning. Cut more Plains than Islands if choose to play Wonder.


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Tranquil Cove and Sejiri Refuge
  • Macabre Waltz
  • Cemetery Recruitment
  • Hedron Archive
  • Greed
  • Ever After
  • Geralf's Mindcrusher
  • Swiftfoot Boots
  • Graf Harvest
  • Fumigate

Good luck with your deck.

Since you are playing Vampires with Daddy Markov at helm, you will find out that your deck will have a low curve (mostly 1-3 mana to get the most out Edgar Markov 's token creation) and will lean heavily on black (like 75%+ black). So it's better that your nonbasic lands enter the battlefield untapped and can generate black mana.

Some suggestions of cheap, untapped lands for Markov are Unclaimed Territory , Battlefield Forge , Caves of Koilos , Tainted Field , Tainted Peak , Foreboding Ruins , Smoldering Marsh , Graven Cairns , Concealed Courtyard .

The first lands I would take out would be Boros Garrison , Wind-Scarred Crag and Temple of Triumph , because they always enter the battlefield tapped and don't generate black mana.

I agree with SP3CTR3_chelts I think you can go down to 36-37 lands pretty easily. I would also look at getting a few dual lands as well. Some fairly budget ones are Tainted Field , Scoured Barrens , Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard , Caves of Koilos and Shambling Vent . They will help make sure you have the colors you need and let you get away with having less land. I know buying lands is not always the most fun way to spend your money, but it's almost always worth it.

I noticed you only have 1 board wipe, and would suggest a couple more. I really like Fumigate and Phyrexian Rebirth since they either gain you life or leave you with a big creature token. Also, Swords to Plowshares is only a couple bucks and the best creature removal you can get for commander.

Hey, good first version, nice Avacyn, Angel of Hope :)

29 lands is unfortunately not enough land especially since Tariel is seven mana... The priority for deck changes to consider is to add more lands and add more ramp. I recommend 38 lands and 5 more additional mana sources. You don't just need more lands for Tariel you need them to be able to consistently play the other Angels in your deck since many of them have high mana costs.

Budget cards ($3 or less each, most are $1 each) to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Angel's Feather
  • Scroll of Avacyn
  • Pious Interdiction
  • Angelic Gift
  • Increasing Devotion
  • Syndicate Guildmage
  • Cathar's Companion
  • Angelic Wall
  • Ritual of Rejuvenation
  • Flameblade Angel
  • Angel of Renewal
  • Teyo, the Shieldmage
  • Kaya, Bane of the Dead
  • Replenish

Replenish is an amazing expensive price card, it's great you have it, but it's not doing much here because there's only seven enchantments. Because you have Replenish you should consider building an enchantment matters deck with lots of enchantments.


Other budget upgrades to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

I think you meant to put in Tainted Isle instead of Tainted Field
