Vampire Nighthawk

Creature — Vampire Shaman

Flying

Deathtouch (Any amount of damage this deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)

Lifelink (Damage dealt by this creature also causes you to gain that much life.)

I can tell when you played xD

And hey, don't sell yourself short, casual 60 card is the epitome of magic.

Budget Suggestions (≤ $10): Griselbrand because he's awesome, Dark Ritual because speed, Go for the Throat or alternatively: I see you're running Bone Shredder. Perhaps considering replacing with Shriekmaw? He's less hardcastable, but he does throw himself into your graveyard in a hurry. Consider Buried Alive to fill the GY? Vampire Nighthawk has been replaced with Nighthawk Scavenger I know, the powercreeper has been powercrept.

Non-Budget Suggestions ($10+): Archon of Cruelty. I mean, read what it does. Right? That's ridiculous.
Recurring Nightmare It's pricey, but it's absolutely busted. (It sacs a dude and bounces to your hand as an additional cost) It never goes away.
Atraxa, Grand Unifier Honestly not my cup of tea, but she's very powerful. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth Only because: It's just good in this deck. You're already running Liliana of the Dark Realms x2 and Coffers. Maybe find some heavily played ones?

Make Room: The most unfun part of coming back to any old deck. Well, Liliana Vess is just too expensive now days (even back then she was kinda pricey), but most of the time she ends up being a 5 CMC vampiric tutor at sorcery speed anyways. She never lives long.

Sorin Markov kind of falls under the same boat, at least in this deck imo. Usually by the time you can cast him, opponents aren't at 20 life anymore, so the appeal of "10 dmg" can be somewhat deceptive.

Anyways, welcome back, and I hope you enjoy yourself

personally i would replace Vampire Nighthawk with Glissa Sunslayer if the theme here is deathtouch. plus having two glissa's is kinda fun.

Flying Deathtouch is nice. i wont deny that. Sunslayer has 3 abilities that are all nice tho.

solid deck. love the theme!

Great concept! Looking to build a casual vampire tribal deck myself. I found 20 lands to be on the low side for this deck when play testing, but I suppose that depends on how loose your mulligan rules are within your playgroup. Vampire Nighthawk has long been a favorite of mine, but you might look into Nighthawk Scavenger instead. You might consider Thoughtseize in lieu of a few removal spells to help protect against board wipes. Food for thought for other possible inclusions: Indulgent Aristocrat pairs nicely with Bloodghast. Blood Artist is always a favorite in vamp decks. Hope this helps!

These are some other cards to consider for the deck and theme. I would suggest using a 24/36 ratio (24 lands to 36 non lands). This gives you the best probability to draw a land every third or fourth turn, which will let you work your way up the mana curve. You should also strive for a nice bell curve on the mana graph if possible. A couple of 1 drops, a few 2 drops, a handful of 3's, a handful of 4's and then back down to a couple of 5 or 6's. Anything more costly than that can be hard to play or not quick enough for some games. And a couple of "responses" is good, ie "destroy target creature" or "exile target enchantment" Probably don't need more than 4-6 in a 60 card deck. I would pick 3-4 really important creatures, like Vito and indulging patrician and bloodthirsty aerialist, for the deck's theme and include 4 copies of them (except legendary creatures since you are only allowed to have one of them on the board at a time and you don't always want to draw a second one to just hold in your hand forever, so maybe drop it to 3(?) or keep at 4 if you think it's important enough). Then pick some "support" cards that help the theme along. In this case stuff like your card draw vampire would be a good choice. A couple of card draw type cards is great. For really expensive costing cards, 6+ mana, they should be your finishers. Once they hit the board you should be on your way to victory, so hopefully just 1 or 2 copies is enough. For a life gain theme, your defiant bloodlord or sanguine bond, is perfect. For a +1/+1 counter theme, you may want to look at splashing red for those vampires instead of white. I would focus on one or the other to streamline the deck to help you narrow down your choices for cards. I've mostly included the vampires with life gain/drain mechanics, but I can look into the +1/+1 counters vampires if you want as well. I like the vampire themes! A powerful tribe in magic!

Dazard on Everybody in the Club Gettin' Keywords

8 months ago

I would suggest adding Bassara Tower Archer because it is cheap and it adds the powerful keyword "hexproof" to your graveyard. I play a kathril deck for myself: Who wants some keyword soup? where basically all you need is Buried Alive to put Zetalpa, Primal Dawn, Bassara Tower Archer and Vampire Nighthawk in your graveyard. (if you want to overkill the whole thing, also add Assault Intercessor to make your commander even bigger and less blockable) Now you can summon your commander with 9 (11 with assault intercessor) counters on it, so it becomes an unstoppable beast that usually oneshots your opponents due to commander damage. You don't even need that much creatures with keywords. Focus more on creatures that can tutor creatures into your graveyard like Corpse Connoisseur, Gravebreaker Lamia, Oriq Loremage or Vile Entomber. Add spells like Jarad's Orders or Final Parting and you will get your most valuable keywords in your graveyard easily. Also add some flicker spells (as already mentioned) to maximize your (commander's) etb effect and to give some sort of protection (f.e. spot removal)

8cardalchemy on Help me Build a Basic …

Hi All,

I want to build an Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper // Tymna the Weaver life gain commander deck. It will be used for semi-casual play at a LGS, so good players with decent decks but not a lot of bonkers combos going off by turn 5.

I have never been amazing a cooking up commander decks that actually function, especially on a budget. Can anyone help me put together a basic/affordable decklist that I can expand on with more expensive cards later (let's say sub $200, preferably closer to $100, price is a little flexible)?

So far, I have the following cards that I know will work here:

Deathrite Shaman Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose Swords to Plowshares Dina, Soul Steeper Voice of the Blessed Kambal, Consul of Allocation Willowdusk, Essence Seer Vampire Nighthawk Drana and Linvala Rodolf Duskbringer Rampant Growth Farseek

I also own both commanders, so that's $30 I don't need to worry about.

Any help is appreciated.

I was playing back in 5th edition and I remember the very first time I saw a HUGE creature. That creature was Scaled Wurm

But I stopped playing that day. I played maybe on three occasions when I was young. I didn't start playing again until after the military when a good friend reintroduced me into it. At that time the set was gatecrash, and the first card I remembered wasn't from gatecrash it was from zendikar it was Vampire Nighthawk. But since you are asking for a card that I remember from gatecrash that card is Rubblebelt Raiders. It was my 1st pack rare
