Tithe Drinker

I agree with cutting Archetype of Finality and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite. I'd also cut Tithe Drinker and Baleful Strix, they seem relatively low-impact all things considered.

Hey, you're welcome. Nice, those are good changes to make :)

Think bigger when it comes to your gameplan and card quality? Gideon's Avenger and Vampire Scrivener are low power level creatures who need other cards to make them good and to fit with the deck's strategy. Their game impact is very low. Vampire Scrivener being a five drop 2/2 flier is worse because it doesn't do anything for five mana. Which is not good when you have other five drops like Liesa, Stinging Study, Liesa, Forgotten Archangel, casting + equipping Sword of Feast and Famine, etc. can impact the game for five mana right away.

Your best attacker and life gaining is Liesa since she has flying, lifelink and she's your Commander meaning she does Commander damage. If you need a blocker then give Liesa vigilance which is what Loyal Unicorn does and it's a good card to keep for this reason. I don't think attacking with lots of creatures or building creatures to be attackers should be your game plan here. Liesa as attacker yes, but instead the creatures you play should support the life gaining strategy for value, draw, protect Liesa, make Liesa a better attacker, be sacrificed to keep Leisa alive, etc. Creatures with lifelink are preferred since if they get to attack they might gain life, but think of that as a bonus.

Liesa, Forgotten Archangel is your second best attacker/life gaining and her other abilities are excellent. Markov Purifier is a good example of a quality budget support creature with Liesa since he can be repeatable draw and if you get to attack with him then he might gain life, but you really play him because of his repeatable draw not because he may do combat damage to gain life.


You have a lot of budget filler creatures here who you don't need to play because they aren't helping gameplay enough to take up a deck spot. As a lesson in Commander deck building try to limit to only quality creatures here. This is not about adding/upgrading creatures, except a few that are in the precon, but instead about choosing only the quality creatures you're currently playing.

What we are looking for in creatures is how they interact or support with the deck strategy. If they're good enough support keep them, but if not then cut them. Even budget filler creatures such as Infantry Veteran can be quality, Veteran is not quality.

This list I've made below is not a knock on your deck building, you're using cards you have available to you, that's great and everyone has this same start. This advice is to how to improve the cards that you play to fill in the rest of the deck spots to have a full deck. Filler cards can also be quality, but you first have to know which cards are not as good as others so that you can improve them within budget.

I have reduced the creature base down to 11 of the quality creatures your currently playing. We are looking for good impact from creatures to make when they are played the first turn which means they have some kind of helpful abilities. Less high end creatures because both Liesa are your best high end creatures who are five drops.

If you're still interested I can continue with advice in another comment. Shall I continue?

Hi)

This looks like a great build! I have a some suggestions: I'd run some number of Dead Weight or Gift of Fangs, because it's a removal you can tutor with Heliod's Pilgrim. You can also enchant Tithe Drinker with Gift to give it a buff. Also, during playtesting, I found the deck to have slight difficulties with lands on the early turns. Since you have actively decided not to run Dark Ritual, I'd maybe suggest adding one basic. And one more note: because a lot of mana symbols in the deck are hybrid anyway, maybe i'd cut some tapped duals for just normal basics.

But overall, it seems like a great list! Keep it up)

Allan-Chefa- on Life Gain and Artifacts!

6 months ago

Good Morning! I tested the deck against some metas and did well, I won against the mono R Burn, Rakdos combo and the Orzhov pestilence, and lost against Mono B fairies. All the matches I lost were for lack of removals to get that annoying blocker out. So I decided to add 2 Cast Down and 1 Suffocating Fumes. I was short of creatures in some matches and the 2x Tithe Drinker let me down. That's when I remembered this guy Vault Skirge who is perfect in the deck... Artifact, lifelink, 1 mana colorless and especially Fly as an evasion and block some fairies. Vampire's Kiss ran well and I decided to close the set. as the game usually goes on and the graveyard ends up filling 1x Gurmag Angler and 1x Blood Fountain were added and for the same reason I will put 1 Bojuka Bog. Duress was successful in every game. Trespasser's Curse and Sanctify I need to test more often. Overall the deck increased 3 Creatures, I hope it doesn't hurt Prowess. I'll test it like this and later I'll give another feedback. Thanks!

Step 1: Cast Worldfire.

Step 2: With Worldfire on the stack, activate ability of either: Blisterspit Gremlin, Brimstone Trebuchet, Lightning-Rig Crew, Lobber Crew, Nettle Drone or Thermo-Alchemist.

Step 3: With ability and Worldfire on the stack, cast either: Dualcaster Mage, Fork, Fury Storm, Increasing Vengeance, Reiterate, Reverberate or Wild Ricochet targeting Worldfire.

Off-color options: Basilica Guards, Basilica Screecher, Blind Obedience, Crypt Ghast, Kingpin's Pet, Syndic of Tithes, Thrull Parasite, Tithe Drinker, Witherbloom Apprentice, Refuse / Cooperate, Insidious Will, Narset's Reversal, Twincast, Naru Meha, Master Wizard.

(This is by no means an exhaustive list, it just happens to be the best mana-cost effective cards I could find.)

Skysurfer on Vito & Vamps

Right off the cuff I would cut Blood Seeker , Voracious Vampire and Brave the Sands as they dont help you win with your life shenanigans. Keeping 1 copy of Blood Seeker may be decent against token or creature decks but that's up to you. Blood Burglar to me seems like a sub-optimal version of Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tithe Drinker so I would swap those. If you have the wallet, Exquisite Blood makes you go infinite with Vito so its an easy swap with Boon Reflection and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is insane, especially when combined with cards like Champion of Dusk and Sanctum Seeker . Indulging Patrician and Silversmote Ghoul is a path if you can consistently get to 3 life each turn. Some copies of Fatal Push or Heartless Act may do you some good because spot removal is nice in modern. You could also be spicy and go Abiding Grace + some decent one drops like Knight of the Ebon Legion , Indulgent Aristocrat , Guul Draz Assassin , Guul Draz Vampire and Vampire Cutthroat . That aside, Nighthawk Scavenger , Blood Artist , Legion's Landing  Flip, Legion Lieutenant , and Drana's Emissary seem like they would fit nicely. I might cut some Cleric of life's bond as well, because its almost purely overshadowed by faster growing cards like Ajani's Pridemate and Sprite Dragon atm. I might also consider cutting 1 Boon Reflection and 1-2 lands to fit the mana curve a little more nicely. A lot of these are just pure suggestions, so the choice on what path is up to you. All in all, very cool deck. I am a big fan of trying to make Vito work, I hope you are successful in your journey and I hope this helps.

VampRamped on Edgar's Value Engine: Vicious Vamps (Tuned EDH)

A very nice Deck that you have here looks like a good Edgar Markov aristocrat list. I would only make a few suggestions.

Before I get to cards that I would add that would be both very good and fun for the deck here are my removal suggestions.

First, Bloodcrazed Paladin I don't think is a very good card. It's not good at all to play on the curve for two mana so the only time your going to play it is after a board wipe or after combat where many creatures died. In the first case if you left open the mana for him you may as well play a Boros Charm effect to save your board rather than just get one big vampire. The second case seems very niche and probably doesn't justify playing the card over something with much more utility.

Second, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is a card that can have scenarios where it works out good it is most of the time just too clunky of a card to work out. The issue is unlike other lords Bloodlord of Vaasgoth doesn't immediately pump your creatures now but rather those in the future. Additionally, he is also expensive mana wise so it's difficult to immediately utilize the bloodthirst effect immediately. What normally happened in my experience with the card and what I imagine usually happens is that your opponents just counter or remove the card before it gets back to your turn when you can start taking advantage of it again. On top of all that it does not serve the aristocrat's strategy that much overall since it does not buff any of your tokens but only the main vampire bodies.

Lastly, I would recommend removing Tithe Drinker or Blind Obedience not because I have any issue with them but rather I just think my third recommendation for the deck is better than either card.

Also as an aside, I don't have any specific recommendations because I think a lot of removal preferences are just that preferences. But in my experience, Edgar Markov struggles much more with enchantments than artifacts just because of pillow fort cards and Humility to name a few I would potentially consider running more removal spells that hit enchantments.

My first Recommendation over Bloodcrazed Paladin is Bloodghast the card is a lot of fun and incredibly powerful in aristocrats. with fetchlands in your deck you can get up to two free sacrifice triggers every turn that you can use with Skullclamp, Attrition, Mana Echoes, Altars, etc. Additionally, your playing entomb which can use go and find Bloodghast and start getting free value off of it.

Instead of Bloodlord of Vaasgoth I would play Bloodline Keeper  Flip. It is very easy to get the transform because of Edgar Markov and provides a powerful static lord effect that will even buff your tokens. Additionally, the card creates 2/2 vampire tokens which are already great for your aristocrat's strategy.

Lastly, I would just recommend playing Legion Lieutenant over one of the two I mentioned just because lord effects are especially good in aristocrats and I think will get you a lot more value than the exhorts from the other two cards.

Well, thats all for my suggestions feel free to check out my Edgar Markov deck here A Vampire Storm *Primer*, if you're looking for inspiration for your deck and/or give your own thoughts on my list.

Have you thought about extort cards? Like Basilica Screecher or Tithe Drinker ?
