Necrosis24 on Tribal Vampires Help Wanted

Necrologia is a fun card for life gain decks, it allows you to dig deep for a combo piece or key removal if needed. Best paired with recursion since it draws at your endstep, otherwise Thought Vessel or Library of Leng can mitigate the downside of discarding to 7.

Five boardwipes seems a bit much but I guess it is meta specific so whatever fits your meta is best at the end of the day. Crippling Fear is solid, won't kill big threats but shuts down a lot of tokens or can potentially save you from a Pathbreaker Ibex swing out.

Whip of Erebos for extra life gain and it's activated ability helps quite a bit when you least expect it to.

glhfJKiHax Oh shit I didn't even think to copy my opponents stuff! You're right, it's going in. I'll have to take a look at options tomorrow. Don't think I'm a huge fan of Expedition Map though. It's a bit slow and Thought Vessel isn't there just for the hand size perk, it's also ramp, and one that I think is good in a deck that is already low on artifact ramp due to being landfall based. It's not really worth dipping into with Gretchen as commander because hypothetically, the deck is designed to just start pumping out land after land after land from card draw loops. If I need to search my library for lands to put into my hand, my commander failed to do what she is supposed to do, I think.

I think Nylea's Intervention is too slow as well although I do think Sylvan Scrying is a good option. Not sure what I'd replace, though. I don't think it's more valuable than the other 2-mana ramp spells in my deck, even though they only look for forests; can always tutor forest islands these days and if I can't, then I've ramped to oblivion already. I would for sure take it over Rampant Growth though, and I was considering putting that back in the deck as well, so it's probably my new consideration.

It can be frustrating hold on to it but a favour combo of mine in my Aesi deck is to drop it targeting my Avenger of Z and having all the plants enter as copies of it creating even more plants. Then just drop a land and get +7 A of Z triggers making a forest of swole plant tokens.

As I mentioned as well, it doesn't need to target something of yours. I have had an opponent drop a huge power creature only for me to turn it into a vanilla token, so it can work that way as well.

Double Major is def a great cloner though.

Expedition Map is a great turn one play that would replace Thought Vessel and help you search for Reliquary Tower getting you a land drop to help with landfall triggers. Nylea's Intervention and Sylvan Scrying would also be beneficial i think as they can also help search out non forest lands that you might need.

Suggestions ans thoughts regarding your development based on my games and changes so far so far:

Plaguecrafter I found it to be immensely useful against planeswalker-focused decks which I didn't really have an answer to before but is still perfectly fine as a mini sacrification forcer. I just got Graf Reaver from a booster, but I don't know if the targeted removal will do any better. I think not, mostly because most players habe three planeswalkers at most.

I also use Reassembling Skeleton to make my life easier while I haven't found Winding Canyons or Vedalken Orrery yet. Sacking it in loop for two mana a pop to force the enemies to sacrifice is much easier than to try and spare my creatures for the perfect moment. If no sacrifice pact is on the field, it still makes good use of excess mana.

Helm of Possession is also nice to get rid of opponents creatures, or just to pull in more sac fodder that isn't even ours. It's not as cheap as I'd like though and doesnt scale particularly well. I haven't tested how it plays but I think it could work out.

Mind Slash works as a supplememt to sadistic hypnotist and replaced grief for me. I didn't like grief for its high recasting cost, so I put this in and throw cheap stuff at it.

Consider Library of Leng to make the effect of Mindslicer completely irrelevant to you. I saw that you removed the reliquary tower; I did the opposite and additonally play a Thought Vessel. Is there a reason you removed the tower? I think it has no downsides.

For the last part I currently run Nullpriest of Oblivion but consider replacing it with Doomed Necromancer. They're both cheap enough and I like to have yet another cog to protect Liesa (well, or get her back for cheap), as well as fetch stuff that went in the graveyard unprotected.

I really like the Tourach, Dread Cantor you put in, I think I'll get him as well. Not sure if I'm willing to pay the 25 bucks for the Stoneforge Mystic, it doesn't seem powerful enough to me. I also removed Alms Collector and didn't miss him so far.

I have replaced Temur Ascendancy and Deus of Calamity with Thought Vessel and Vithian Renegades, which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.98 to 3.94. As much as I liked those two cards, I did not have a sufficient number of creatures with power 4 or greater to justify the ascendancy and the deus's land-destroying ability could annoy my opponents, and the additional source of mana will be nice, as well.

So I have Chromatic Orrery and Void Mirror in play, can I add colorless mana to my pool, then use it as if it were colored mana to cast a spell and not have it countered. Like if I tapped a Thought Vessel to cast a Sol Ring could I instead spend the mana as if it were blue and not have to lose my thing?
