Vampire of the Dire Moon Discussion

Mechanon on Mandatory Teambuilding Seminar

Definitely an interesting deck! I feel like you have some less useful creatures like the Vampire of the Dire Moon , Borderland Marauder and Griffin Sentinel . Having more creatures like Ankle Shanker , Legion Loyalist and Honored Crop-Captain would probably be better. Also, maybe swap out the Sorcery, Artifact and Enchantment cards for those good Instant cards you have. I always try to focus more on playsets (4) of my core cards, rather than try to have a bit of everything.

TheoryCrafter, K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth sounds excellent, I would love to add him in but am having a bit of trouble finding a spot. Maybe take out 1x Grave Titan and then either 1x Phage the Untouchable or something else? Banehound is wonderful and actually helps out a lot, will definitely replace with Vampire of the Dire Moon . Any other suggestions?

Vampire of the Dire Moon and Gifted Aetherborn for B and BB respectively?

Both have deathtouch which feels in-theme here

I agree with trying to capitalize on creatures a little more than noncreatures since you already have Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Liliana Vess caring about them to one degree or another. I think the best creatures to look into would be vampires since you already have a decent shell for them. Gatekeeper of Malakir or Feast of Blood could swap for Geth's Verdict , Gifted Aetherborn or Nighthawk Scavenger could supplement Vampire Nighthawk , Pulse Tracker or Vampire of the Dire Moon could replace Mardu Shadowspear , Blood Artist could replace Cutthroat, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose provides redundancy for Sanguine Bond , Pawn of Ulamog can provide sac fodder for cards like Ob Nix or Viscera Seer , Nullpriest of Oblivion is a flexible way to reanimate beefy monsters like Sangromancer , Vampire Nocturnus , Malakir Bloodwitch , Butcher of Malakir , or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . Finally, while not a vampire, I'd rather play Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor if you can't afford the OG 1-2 cost tutors. BTW, I'm not saying you should run all of these cards; just run what fits your playstyle.

I think the deck is very good but I see the potential for it to be that little bit better by honing in a little more on what you want your deck identity to be, Allow me to explain.

On the one hand, you run cards such as Vicious Conquistador , Pulse Tracker , Skymarcher Aspirant , Universal Automaton , Vampire Cutthroat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , these are all good cards in an Edgar Markov deck focused on trying to kill the table as fast as possible but with all the aristocrats you have, they are at best, 2 bodies for one mana. If you are trying to go for an aristocrats strategy Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Living Death , and Patriarch's Bidding , Blade of the Bloodchief are all going to give you significantly more bang for your buck in an aristocrats strategy

On the other is your many many aristocrat's pieces which I know can be good in an aggressive strategy, but these aristocrat cards are harder to justify when you have plenty of vampires in your deck that say, "I'm not a very good card, but I can kill you really fast if I build momentum." I think aggressive choices can be very much so be justified if the card itself is a very high-quality card.

Also quick side note why is Sphere of Safety in your deck? seems very unnecessary considering your playing go, wide aristocrats, Edgar Markov

But yeah I like the deck especially the fact that you recognize that just because your playing Mardu doesn't mean 15% of your deck should be removal spells. I have my own list that you can check out at this link where yes I also do try to balance two strategies at once but I think that my deck makes it work since most of the cards in the deck are not only great in there intended role but pretty good at getting the other job done.

BrassLord on Budget vampires black splash white

Splashing in white could give you access to Pillory of the Sleepless , which will just drain opponents over time! Would also give you access to the Black White vampires from Rivals of Ixalan like Forerunner of the Legion , Legion Lieutenant , Adanto Vanguard .

Asylum Visitor is a decent side deck card to have, as is Duress . Siding in Viridian Longbow synergizes really well with all the deathtouch creatures you have, which could help if you're going against something with bigger creatures. Nihil Spellbomb for graveyard hate.

Arterial Flow Seems like it should have a home in this deck too!

Creature recommendations Silversmote Ghoul and Dusk Legion Zealot . Vampire of the Dire Moon would also be an excellent inclusion, but I'm not sure how budget you're aiming to make it

I'm a fan of running Fungal Infection over Viper's kiss, as it either allows you to trade up to two toughness or create more tokens to keep your attacks rolling.

Cuts would probably be to some Nighthaze and Pooling Venom !

Hope those give you some ideas!

Hey, good start on a budget.

Cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:

  • Beacon of Immortality
  • Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood
  • Vein Drinker
  • Defiant Bloodlord
  • Mirari
  • Grisly Spectacle
  • Archetype of Finality
  • Arvad the Cursed
  • Teysa Karlov
  • Captivating Crew
  • Bishop of Binding
  • Regal Bloodlord
  • Tempt with Immortality
  • Solar Blaze
  • Commander's Insignia
  • Congregate

The cuts to consider above will reduce the mana curve a lot, but consider reducing it even more by adding more low CMC Vamps: one drops and two drops? With Edgar you want an established battlefield of Vamps to attack before you cast him. Lower CMC Vamps gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each one also creates a Vamp token. Edgar is the high CMC Vamp you want to cast more the than the others therefore you don't really need lots of other high CMC Vamps or even high CMC nonVamp cards.

Vamps to consider adding that are $1-$2 each, most are less than $1:

If your budget allows more then these tribal Vamps are powerful upgrades:


Some budget land upgrades for the manabase:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.
