Also I forgot but if Vampire Hexmage kills a creature with first strike then counters can be added to my creatures before the normal damage is done.

she can be versatile. She can destroy a planeswalker while putting counters on my vampires. Also I think I have a good balance of deathtouch and lifelink. The option to equip a first strike vamp with the Blade of the Bloodchief can be strong. When I run out of cards there is Asylum Visitor for draw and Knight of the Ebon Legion to sink mana. Also she gives the option to kill my own creature at instant speed which could potentially save my vampires from Anger of the Gods or something. The other reason for Vampire Hexmage is to take a counter off of the Chalice of the Void and other nonsense like that.

How has Vampire Hexmage been working for you? Her ability doesn't exactly synergize with any of your other cards, and I don't know how often she is relevant against opponents' decks. I think higher curve threats like Captivating Vampire , Drana, Liberator of Malakir , or Nighthawk Scavenger might do better.

Vampire Hexmage might be a nice sideboard card against Planeswalkers and other cards with counters like Chalice of the Void or The Ozolith .

Also with all of your land tutors, why not add Dark Depths and Vampire Hexmage for some additional fun.

I ran a quick Gatherer search for ["enters the battlefield" + "counter" + "NOT +1/+1" + "NOT Energy" + "Creature"] and skimmed through it. The search was a bit over-inclusive, but was short enough to quickly read.

You can run that search to get more options, but I pulled out some notable choices--the below creatures have abilities above and beyond simply being "Vanilla/French vanilla with an ETB downside" (no other abilities, or just an evergreen ability).

  1. Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle
  2. Chronozoa - used with Solemnity and a sacrifice engine, you can build an infinite army of these guys (or just win outright if your sacrifice engine hurts opponents).
  3. Look into creatures with Persist, such as Kitchen Finks or Murderous Redcap . Combined with a sacrifice engine and Solemnity/ Melira, Sylvok Outcast , you'll be able to go infinite.
  4. Lost Auramancers can find you Solemnity, so you can get extra bang for your Vampire Hexmage buck if you target Auramancers.

Otherwise, you're mostly looking at creatures that enter the battlefield smaller and grow bigger.

I am looking into an EDH deck idea to see if it will work. I am trying to find creatures that enter with counters that are 'negative' or that want to be removed. Examples include Thing in the Ice  Flip and Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle . I am looking to pair these up with effects that remove all counters or prevents counters such as Solemnity , Vampire Hexmage , and AEther Snap in order to get the most bang for my buck. I do not have a commander yet so all colors are welcome.

I actually made an entire deck around this concept that works surprisingly well. Steve Argyle is a particularly great resource for this topic. In addition to Liliana of the Veil and Chosen of Markov  Flip, he's also done Deadly Allure , Guul Draz Vampire , Naya Battlemage , and Night Revelers . Other notable artists are Jason Chan ( Deathpact Angel , Fires of Undeath , Kiora, Master of the Depths , Mayael the Anima , Maul Splicer , Treasured Find ) and Volkan Baga ( Elspeth, Knight-Errant , Korozda Gorgon , Stoic Angel , Student of Warfare ). I ended up going with vampires + knights and some other cards I included are Hero of Bladehold , Knight Exemplar , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , and possibly the most ridiculous piece of Magic art ever created: Soul Collector . Some cards that came close to making the cut are Angel of Despair , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief , Knight of Dusk , Magister of Worth , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Vampire Hexmage , and Veteran Cavalier .

Other cards that I like (sorted by type) include Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch , Lyzolda, the Blood Witch , Kemba, Kha Regent , Sunspear Shikari , Elvish Champion , Gaea's Herald , Quirion Dryad , Nimbus Naiad , Dreamborn Muse , Mistral Singer , Shipwreck Singer , Siren of the Fanged Coast , Akroma, Angel of Wrath , Archangel of Strife , Basandra, Battle Seraph , Razia, Boros Archangel , and Ire Shaman . Looking at this list now, it's clear I've spent far too much time researching this subject.
