Gilver on A Miserable Little Pile Of Tokens!

New Blood is a fun and flavorful card and one can dream of pulling your given example out xD. But yeah, that card can help me disable my opponents' commander and steal scary creatures (my meta consists of decks which can cheat in fat scary creatues) so it is fair to keep that one. Vampire Nocturnus is a gamble, and us Magic players already have a severe gambling addiction. I have Viscera Seer, Bolas's Citadel, Forerunner of the Legion, Florian, Voldaren Scion and simple card draw to help me manipulate my top deck. It is risky but also highly rewarding, giving your tokens a big buff and making them evasive. I am probably gonna cut Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim, since it is not a vampire and not that synergistic.

Really appreciate your input!

AsteriskReaper on Edgar Markov's Eminence of the Blood

Oh I love Vampire Nocturnus my 4drop slot is currently incredibly tight as I'm trying to lower it. I did have him in here for years

Definitely have to consider the Scavenger, That does look sick

The one drops were in here but sucked and replaced them with other 1 drops

Mana Echoes is definitely in my maybelist to get and find room for.

Love my Diabolic Tutor but I will have to remove it one day

Sorin Markov has won me way to many games to ever cut. Especially against esper control/life gain decks that have gotten oppressively high life totals

The Bloodcrazed will eventually be cut

VampRamped on Edgar Markov's Eminence of the Blood

Cool nice to see you had a list on tapped out for Edgar Markov you had mentioned you had an Edgar Markov deck in the comments of my deck.

I think this is a very well-constructed mid-range Edgar Markov list and would like to only offer a few card suggestions for your consideration for the deck.

Vampire Nocturnus in my experience is the most powerful vampire lord giving your whole team massive power boost and evasion as well as itself. In addition you already have an excellent mana base to accomadate the card in your deck, and Vampire Nocturnus synergizes well with Viscera Seer, Sensei's Divining Top, and Fetch Lands.

Nighthawk Scavenger is strictly better than Vampire Nighthawk which you play in this deck even in the early game if an opponent cracks a fetch land it is at least as good but with way more upside.

Living Death is an absolutely amazing card and one of the best cards in my own Edgar Markov list, I will not go into all the details here but I have an entire section under my powerful cards and synergies dedicated to this card.

Knight of the Ebon Legion and Falkenrath Pit Fighter, are just higher quality one drops than cards like Pulse Tracker, and Vampire of the Dire Moon.

I will also echo an earlier comment by Sandwitcher and say definitely include Olivia's Wrath it is a fantastic board wipe.

Also you have all the combo pieces already so just slot in Mana Echoes, and funnily enough you could actually cast Ulamog with it in some of your games.

Cards that I would recommend you consider removing: Diabolic Tutor there is not any card worth spending 4 mana to have in your hand, and if there is a spell worth spending 4 mana to find then it will likely not resolve.

Sorin Markov while OG Sorin is pretty cool he is likely not worth playing. The deck is already very efficient at killing people and if you have the 6 mana and the confidence to cast Sorin then you might as well play Edgar Markov instead.

Bloodcrazed Paladin I see many people that do play this in their deck but it is just not worth it. This card is at its best when the board just got wiped so it comes in as a big creature but at that point, you might as well just play Boros Charm and save your board instead of getting a derpy vampire. Also playing this card on curve is also bad so just all around would not recommend playing.

     lukas96: It's funny, I actually just cut Dusk Legion Zealot in favour of Night's Whisper lol. Honestly I might end up switching it back, but I've also been considering re-adding a couple of the Village Rites/Deadly Dispute/etc. style of cards.

     Patriarch's Bidding is a card I used to great effect back in the day. I hadn't really thought about it here but I think I'm going to consider it, too. Effects that return from my Graveyard to my Hand are generally better as I get to trigger Eminence again, but as a game goes longer that Patriarch's Bidding just gets more and more valuable.

     Vampire Nocturnus is soooo good. Love this card! Despite being predominantly a Black build I just found this card was more often than not not doing it's thing, and it was regretfully cut.

     Between Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Goblin Bombardment, Yahenni, Undying Partisan and the more narrow options like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Skullclamp, I tend to get quite a bit of value out of Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos. They're also really nice as a way to get rid of Indestructible blockers.

     Herald's Horn is actually a new addition that I haven't casted yet, so it may be that I agree with you but I don't have that data yet. I do like that it can act as a pseudo-draw tool, though.

     Great suggestions! Thank you. =)

You have a pretty agressive creature base with a low mana curve which I definitely like. There aren't a lot of sac outlets in your deck so I don't think that Gravepact and Dictate of Erebos do much for your gameplan tbh. Your Vampires are so cheap I don't think that Herald's Horn does much.

I'm currently playing Night's Whisper in my deck as well but plan to replace it with Dusk Legion Zealot. Only draws one card but ads to your gameplan much better so maybe you want to consider that. What do you think about Patriarch's Bidding and Vampire Nocturnus (maybe you don't habe enough black cards for that one)

in your deck editor with your card list is that line of code written after Vampire Nocturnus? or is there some sort of box checked?... because if that code is there simple delete it or remove the card from the deck altogeter.... update the deck with a filler card and then go back into the editer and replace the filler card with Nocturnus... that should do it?

Village Rites is an auto-include, it's strictly better than Altar's Reap. i built the deck before it was printed, and forgot it was printed. thanks!

i'll have to consider the +1/+1 counters plan. i don't know if it integrates the way i want it to. Vampire Nocturnus actually does, as the reveal, scry, and fetch mechanics work together very well for fishing through the deck. and it's a bomb that frequently just wins the game, or gets close enough the sac plan does. Vampire Nighthawk wasn't an original include, but got added because i was having a problem with a missing mid-range, and it's just value. maybe some of the counter generation can work in that spot, but the lifegain and deathtouch are pretty useful in practice. the three and four drops are mostly flex spots, though, and i'm definitely going to find a place for Pawn of Ulamog. the acceleration and saccable token seems like a perfect fit.
