Vampire Nighthawk Discussion

I think Feast of Blood would be good here.
I also think 4 Nocturnus is slightly excessive and high on the curve. I would maybe go down 1-2 and add in more Captivating Vampire and other 1-3 drops. Gifted Aetherborn and Vampire Nighthawk come to mind.

This is my 20 creature suggestion.

If you're going to go for a similar creatures to what you already have in your deck currently. My top pick is
Another card out that list I like is Arrogant Bloodlord. It only costs 3 mana and it's a 4/4.

This is pretty cool. I really think some protection against flyers would be important, just in case. Maybe, just maybe, try out Vampire Nighthawk or something similar in place of Drinfting Shade? If it's out of budget, how about Fetid Imp?

I also have adapted the Edgar deck, but mine is more casual. Haha. The only suggestion i have for you unfortunately is Nighthawk Scavenger over Vampire Nighthawk currently. I have been out of MtG for a little under a year, so I've forgotten most of my vampire clan. Haha. I'll get back into it though. Good luck!

libraryjoy, do you think I should add more dark rituals then? But ok, no twilight mire it is. I also do have the 4 Phyrexian Obliterator . The cards I don't have are Torment of Scarabs , Archfiend of Depravity , Eradicator Valkyrie , Vampire Nighthawk , Dauthi Voidwalker , and Epic Downfall but I can purchase these.
Would I just put one of those Gray Merchant of Asphodel ? One? I don't think I would use Archetype because of the mana cost, like you said. Honestly, Revenge of Ravens would go amazing with this. Tell your friend I say thank you! I was thinking of Stab Wound , but wasn't sure how well it had fit.
I was also thinking of adding possibly Erebos, God of the Dead .

I've played a bunch of budget modern lists - Nighthawk's competition is Gurmag Angler . They require similar setup, but angler doesn't die to push/bolt and doesn't need the graveyard to stay stocked.
To pick scavenger over angler, you need to take advantage of its typing, keywords or cmc - ideally all of them. Vampire/rogues have some neat synergies, but vamps already have good tools for 'getting a big creature' while rogues tend towards a more aggressive build that wants 1 drops. It does form part of a set with the other Vampire Nighthawk clones, but using deathtouch/lifelink well enough to justify all of them is trickier than it sounds - a 3 drop is high mana in modern, and deathtouch makes it want to trade up.
I could see a jund list with nighthawk built around using both Bloodbraid Elf and Collected Company to power out 3 drop creatures. If there is a card that lets your creatures ping stuff or says 'everything has trample' strong enough, it might make it to teir 2, but that doesn't exist yet.

love the idea and got a lot of great cards you should consider: Erebos, God of the Dead i might run 3 of these boys. obv choice with black devotion.
Crypt Ghast is gonna pop off in this deck, no doubt. Royal Assassin as well. I'd ditch the Nightveil Specter since they could easily be replaced with Vampire Nighthawk for way more value. also consider Bloodsoaked Champion
