Balaam__ on Gary is back...on a budget!

Vampire Nighthawk might be worth considering. It meshes well with what you already have going. It’s also 2 more black to count toward your devotion.

ANub1s90 Very nice deck. I just have a few suggestions listed below.

Duress and Vicious Rumors are decent discard spells, but a bit lacking when compared to other discard spells. Try out Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek or even Appetite for Brains.

Why not 4x Nighthawk Scavenger in the mainboard? It's a better Vampire Nighthawk.

Last thing, mana base. Fetchlands are good for getting basics and increasing your chances of getting a non-land card. Nurturing Peatland is card draw in the late game, and you might want some "Man-Lands" such as Mutavault to keep the hits coming even when you are at the late game with no cards in hand. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is great with colourless lands as it turns them into swamps if needed. Another spicy thing you could try out is Cabal Stronghold, a modern-legal, slightly worse Cabal Coffers.

+1 from me.

StopShot on Did you like zendikar?

Was hoping for Trap cards to return. Ended up disappointed.

As someone who plays only Alesha in EDH I was disappointed to see yet another new Fleshbag Marauder creature with power 3. There’s now 5 creatures with this effect, all of which with 3 or 4 power which feels like I’m getting dunked on at this point. Skyclave Apparition at least makes up for it and Soul Shatter is cool too.

I’ve been wanting Vampire Nighthawk to be reprinted into Pioneer, so Nighthawk Scavenger was really cool.

As a Modern burn player Wayward Guide-Beast is unplayable. Maybe if they gave it +1 power instead of Trample I would have to reconsider as it’s drawback is too severe despite trying to be a throwback to Goblin Guide.

Skyclave Shade is absolutely cool. Half-tempted to build a Modern or Pioneer deck with it, Phoenix of Ash and nothing but hard removal spells to back them up.

Party mechanic is kind of cool. White was clerics, Blue was wizards, Black was rogues, and Red was Warriors. Why they didn’t make Green be Archers is very disappointing to me though.

I guess it in all was alright.

I have replaced Vampire Nighthawk with Nighthawk Scavenger, since the latter card is superior in the majority of situations.

So, looking at spoilers for Zendikar Rising. There are a few vamps in the set, 2 are only viable with Sorin.

But there's a callback to Vampire Nighthawk. It's literally nighthawk but it has a Tarmogoyf effect but only for its power and only counting your opponent's graveyard. This would be absolutely fantastic in a more control-leaning vampire or just black deck in general.

DemonDragonJ on Zendikar Spoilers!

That new vampire, nighthawk scavenger, is almost entirely better than Vampire Nighthawk in the same way that Swiftblade Vindicator is almost entirely better than is Boros Swiftblade, an even uses the same naming convention. The original nighthawk was a great card that some players felt was too powerful, but this card is even more so, and I feel that it is a blatant example of power creep.
