Valentin, Dean of the Vein

Legendary Creature — Vampire Wizard

Menace, Lifelink

If a nontoken creature an opponent controls would die, exile it instead. When you do, you may pay . If you do, create a 1/1 black and green Pest creature token with "When this creature dies (is put into the graveyard from the battlefield, tokens are put into the graveyard before they cease to exist), you gain 1 life."

Looking good! As you're already running Plagiecrafter and Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner and Revel in Riches would be perfect additions. Spawning Pit is another great sac-outlet. Pest Infestation is a match made in heaven with Savra. In that regard, Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip is very fitting, as well.

You… do know Wizards already did that, right? On Strixhaven, the 10 deans of the colleges are mdfc’d with the other dean of the college.

Plargg, Dean of Chaos  Flip

Shaile, Dean of Radiance  Flip

Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip

Kianne, Dean of Substance  Flip

Uvilda, Dean of Perfection  Flip

Anyway, carry on.

I see Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip in here, which just looks out of place, the only thing it really has going for it is legendary, so on that note...

The Reality Chip should probably find a place in here, since it is an equipment, it's legendary, and it has a color for Mox Amber. It basically checks all the boxes. If you are able to equip it... it just helps a lot.

Here's some other legendary creatures that are half suggestions - Lavinia, Azorius Renegade could be a form of hate. If you wanted to be more combo oriented, Lazav, the Multifarious is a decent idea, since he lets you copy stuff in the grave still. Niambi, Esteemed Speaker lets you bluff being a control deck, while still playing him. Valki, God of Lies  Flip just has decent value.

Swapped in 2 more Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip, 2 more Daemogoth Titan, and 2 more Poet's Quill; Swapped for Culling Ritual and Rushed Rebirth, and updated sidebar. Fielding one Witherbloom Apprentice, might replace him with something lifelink.

LMK if I should take out Moldervine Reclamation, Sanguine Indulgence, and Village Rites (and lands) to make it standard format... feel free to suggest replacements. currently feeling Village Rites -> Deadly Dispute, Sanguine Indulgence ->??? Moldervine Reclamation -> Poet's Quill Moldervine Reclamation -> Essence Infusion

Love it
Since it's golgari you could squeeze Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip + Savra, Queen of the Golgari + Ashnod's Altar in the deck also

I'm glad you like it!

The deans from Strixhaven make perfect pairs to build around for 2HG. My playgroup has a pair of players who built around Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip and Lisette, Dean of the Root .
