Vampire Nighthawk

Creature — Vampire Shaman


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.)

Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose pairs well will Exquisite Blood and I recommend Nighthawk Scavenger as an upgrade over Vampire Nighthawk and I’d remove Dark Impostor (it’s expensive for what it does). Feel welcome to check out my upgraded Vampiric Bloodline deck Innistrad’s Hottest Club: Voldaren Estates for some more ideas

I like what you have going here.

Unfortunately, you'll need to splash to get access to "fight" spells & Lure shenanigans. But, I would recommend a couple of sources of vigilance & trample to complement the deathtouch from another angle.

Personally, I would cut 1x of each of your three equipments and 1x Vampire Nighthawk for a combination of...

All suggestions are mono black vampires and fit more of an aristocrats build.

Lords - Captivating Vampire buffs the squad and gives the ability of stealing an opponent’s creature

Vampire Nocturnus buffs the squad, gives evasion and since you’re mono black can play with the top of your library visible

1 drops - Knight of the Ebon Legion is the best 1 drop vamp imo. Can buff itself, gains permanent buffs and doubles as removal mid-late game

Viscera Seer a great sac target and let’s you scry 1

Vampire Cutthroat has skulk and lifelink

Vampire Lacerator a 2/2 for 1, you take one damage unless your opponent has 10 or less life

Indulgent Aristocrat a decent buffer with a sac engine

Guul Draz Vampire gains a buff if the opponent has 10 or less life

Pulse Tracker opponent takes 1 damage when it attacks

2 drops - Cordial Vampire not a lord in name, but has that buffing ability and triggers when ANYTHING dies. Buffs the team more efficiently than any lord imo.

Bloodghast a vital piece imo, it can’t block, but comes back when you play a land

Blood Artist a key piece for an aristocrat build, combos great with cordial and Vito

Asylum Visitor for card draw and the ability to come back

Kalastria Highborn great addition for a drain and gain/aristocrat build

Vraan, Executioner Thane combos great with Vito

Stromkirk Condemned can buff the team for a turn

Vampire Hexmage great sideboard piece for dealing with counters

Gifted Aetherborn might be favorite vampire, but doesn’t fit an aristocrat build

3 drops - Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord the only walker you need. Buffs, gives deathtouch & lifelink to a vampire, acts as a Lightning Helix and you cheat out a vampire

Silversmote Ghoul is a perfect target for Sorin’s second ability and comes back at the end of your end step

Vampire Nighthawk one of the best vampires imo, has evasion, deathtouch and lifelink, but doesn’t fit the aristocrat build

Nighthawk Scavenger a vampire goyf

Drana, Liberator of Malakir has evasion, first strike and buffs attacking creatures

Lands - Cavern of Souls an absolute MUST for any tribal build

Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth flips things to swamps

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is great for all devotion the build will have

Castle Locthwain for card draw later

Prismatic Vista, Verdant Catacombs, Polluted Delta, Marsh Flats & Bloodstained Mire to fetch and thin out your deck to keep the gas flowing.

Ninjas are awesome: one of my EDH decks is a Yuriko deck that makes people "very happy". And it's a good start that you have! Some thoughts about things to add that vary in budget-friendliness:

Vampire of the Dire Moon -> Vampire Nighthawk or Murderous Rider are budged replacements. Even a Graveyard Trespasser  Flip fit's in for the value.

Legion's End & Go Blank are good sideboard options.

Cool build! Might I recommend Nighthawk Scavenger over Vampire Nighthawk?

I built a Strefan deck too (Vampiric Bloodsport) and it’s fun to see the other directions/tweaks people take with him as the commander.

Cool build! I see Vampire Nighthawk much more frequently than Nighthawk Scavenger in EDH builds - is there a reason for this? Nighthawk Scavenger seems like a much better card to me, but I’m also pretty new to MTG.

It’s a shame that Nighthawk Scavenger isn’t standard legal to replace Midnight Assassin (even Vampire Nighthawk would be an upgrade)
