Vampiric Tutor Discussion

Heliogabale on Music of the Spheres | Jodah, Archmage Eternal

Thank you seshiro_of_the_orochi for commenting!

The platform shouldn't have let you suggest Maelstrom Archangel, it is already in the list. ;)

I had considered Sisay, but even with 7 power, it would have only 8 valid targets. Granted, these include Golos and Najeela, but then what would I cut to slot her in?

I feel single-use tutors are not optimal in this deck and effectively dilute the high mana-value I am aiming at for various effects. I actually just cut Demonic Tutor from the list; I would consider Vampiric Tutor , since it topdecks the card, potentially adding value to a trigger.

Feel free to suggest cuts or additional inclusions!

Cheers,

Mystical Tutor and Vampiric Tutor can go a long way in this deck as they allow you to manipulate the top of your library.

Fetchlands and shocklands are in quite a reasonable price range now and can help smooth out your land base as well, it’s usually pretty good to have some “free” shuffle effects. Or if that isn’t an option, at least Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are quite helpful for that as well.

A couple more big mana extra turn cards like Time Stretch could help.

I would for sure at least remove Golden Ratio as this card will almost always be a dead card since you have so few creatures and Blatant Thievery will be just a corner case for it.

Jace is ok here, but something like Saheeli, Sublime Artificer would be better as you’ll be casting a ton of non-creature spells and making a lot of tokens. Even Monastery Mentor can also help with that as well.

Hopefully this gives you some ideas to go with the deck if you want to keep it running. Good luck.

Dudeguy92man You're definitely right about Increasing Ambition , ideally it would be a Vampiric Tutor . Didn't realize Thespian's Stage was so cheap ill have to pick up a few copies. Arcane Signet is great, thanks for that one too. Fervor would be a good upgrade for Ogre Battledriver too. Hope to see you on untap again sometime!

Mick-Tis Scheming Symmetry is good in Anowon because it tutors to the top of the library, and you can just make them mill whatever they tutor while its still your turn so that they can't use it. In this case its basically Vampiric Tutor but without the life loss!

I'm tempted to upvote this just because you actually have a good creature count for Edgar. I'm so tired of seeing decks with only like 30 vamps and most of them being upwards of 4 mana.

That said, I think you're a little bit heavy on artifacts/enchantments. Some like tremors are good, some like Shared Animosity are vital, but in terms on non-creature permanents, the only artifact you NEED is skullclamp. You have more than ample sacrifices thanks to Edgar to reload your hand.

I'm a huge fan of stuff like Carrier Thrall , Martyr of Dusk and Dusk Legion Zealot for clamp targets that give extra value. And my big 4 of Edgar decks are Shared Animosity, Skullclamp, Mavren Fein and Mirror entity. Maybe Obelisk of Urd ? Edgar doesn't need a ton of mana acceleration if your creatures are all small.

And tutors for clamp such as Stoneforge Mystic , Steelshaper's Gift , Open the Armory , Enlightened Tutor , Demonic Tutor , Diabolic Intent , Vampiric Tutor , and a new personal favorite in Tainted Pact all help a lot. The only real mana ramp I run is Phyrexian tower, Ancient Tomb and Dark Ritual.

One last idea would be to toss in Demon of Death's Gate and Westvale Abbey  Flip. The demon can be effortlessly played as early as turn 2.

YamishiTheWickedOne on Edgar Markov (Needs Tuned)

Edgar typically doesn't need many artifacts. Ideally your vamps should be mostly 1-2 mana anyway. The only artifact I'd say you absolutely NEED is Skullclamp as vamps tend to play their entire hand very early and you have plenty of 1/1s to sacrifice to reload your hand. If you don't have the budget for Stoneforge Mystic (I assume this is budget due to the lack of utility lands) then I'd suggest Steelshaper's Gift and/or Open the Armory or just ordinary tutors like Demonic Tutor , Diabolic Intent , Vampiric Tutor , Enlightened Tutor and so on.

Your vampires actually seem to be pretty high-costed. For Edgar decks, it's pretty common to see upwards of 30 1-2 mana creatures and 40-46 or so creatures total.

I'm a big fan of Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Shared Animosity , Mirror Entity and Obelisk of Urd in vamps, along with optional tech in the form of Goblin Bombardment and Impact Tremors , also Nameless Inversion counts as casting a vampire spell, funny enough.

Best of luck, building on a budget can be tough.
