Vampire of the Dire Moon Discussion

Well, I'm 16, so I'm not very dependant on my job.

Vampire of the Dire Moon most of the time was just a stall card, and not a very good one. A lot of the time I was hesitant to trade him for someone else's 1/1 and he ended up doing a whole lot of nothing. Anyway, since Sanguine Bond is only a one-of in this deck, I think I shouldn't build too heavily around it, but the lifelink is sad to lose for Bloodthirsty Aerialist . But, since I have other methods of lifelink, I hope this'll be good.

Sorin_Markov_1947, sorry to hear about your employment situation. Hopefully it will improve soon. As for your suggestion of Divest , I think it's a good one- but you need to be extra mindful of your meta. Now, what to cut? I think you will need to play test and see what works, but it appears you've already worked things in already.

  • Cutting Anowon, the Ruin Sage seems like a good idea. He's very high cost for relatively little pay off- having to wait til the opponent's upkeep to sacrifice one creature hardly makes much of an impact.

  • Cutting Vampire of the Dire Moon , i'd be a bit hesitant to cut this one as it enables your lifelink synergy with Sanguine Bond - but again it depends on how things go as you playtest.

I think the changes you made look great. Good luck at your next Modern Event.

Possibly instead of Gutterbones you use Vampire of the Dire Moon ?

A good early chump-blocker for this deck like Vampire of the Dire Moon might help you get established.

Although Narcomoeba does provide a back-stop to help always keep a creature on the field, I rather like Clear the Mind to recycle your own graveyard back into your library.

Have you considered something like Thief of Sanity over Connive / Concoct ?

Kaya's Wrath just seems like you are admitting defeat - kill all your own best creatures for a possible extra turn of play. I would tend to go with something like Aid the Fallen to support your Forever Young and this would simplify your lands.

Gifted Aetherborn should be main, Blacklance Paragon . in place of hired poisoner, if you want it to be a 1 drop, add Ruthless Ripper or Vampire of the Dire Moon .

I'd suggest you correct the tags to show that this is a Casual deck, not standard. That way people aren't confused when searching for the deck!

Below I've included a few suggestions that might help guide your deck building process:

  • Playing 3/4 copies of a few cards instead of playing 1/2 copies of many cards will help to improve your consistency. This will also aid in determining which synergies you should strive to focus on. For example; if wanting to focus on using life-gain as a means to pump your creatures, I would run 4 copies of Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Twinblade Paladin type cards, and cut cards that don't work well with them such as Duskborne Skymarcher . A card that I would also include if going this route would be Ajani's Pridemate .

  • When it comes to determining what your deck's focus is, be sure to only include cards that will benefit that plan. For example; following the previously discussed strategy of pumping creatures lends itself well to an aggressive style build. You are looking to attack your opponent each turn, and for that reason your creatures will be tapped more often than not. Due to this, running a card like Sunblast Angel will only work against you. Your opponents will try to leave their creatures untapped to block yours, and when Sunblast Angel enters the battlefield, it may only end up destroying your side of the board. For that reason I would shy away from playing cards like this, regardless of their individual power level. Cards I would suggest instead would be more copies of creatures like Vampire of the Dire Moon or Impassioned Orator , as they provide a means for additional "Whenever you gain life" triggers.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you need help with any more changes.
