Vicious Conquistador

Creature — Vampire Soldier

Whenever Vicious Conquistador attacks, each opponent loses 1 life.

I would play Vicious Conquistador instead of Bloodhall Ooze if you want a 1 mana creature. I understand wanting to play as many low cost creatures to get the deck going but it doesn't synergize with the deck at all. Radiant Epicure has too little impact for 5 mana and the same is true for Astarion imo. Blood Tribute is pretty bad imo super situational and might be completely useless. Patriarch's Bidding is really good and can straight up safe your ass after a boardclear.

Your generally not so much concerned with protecting a single creature but your whole board in this deck so I wouldn't play cards like Beaming Defiance or or Feat of Resistance. Boros Charm is pretty good and preserving your boardstate. I would also cut Bedevil, Hero's Downfall and Poison the Cup and replace them with Vindicate Anguished Unmaking and Swords to Plowshares they are much better spells in general

Pain's Reward deck? lol

For real though, I think Cast Down not hitting legendary creatures is sort of a big deal because of Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer and Omnath, Locus of Creation seeing so much play. Maybe Bloodchief's Thirst, Murderous Rider, Profane Command, or Dismember fit the budget?

Then, I would say you want a more creature focused deck if you're playing Zulaport Cutthroat or to just drop that card for more spells like Smallpox or something. I think playing more creatures along with Warlock Class could be fun, though. You could throw in Ruthless Ripper, Vicious Conquistador, Spawn of Mayhem, and maybe even Reaper's Talisman to just be really aggro with the creatures.

Finally, I think Soot Imp and/or Killing Wave could work for the sideboard.

I'd recommend checking out Signal Pest and Vicious Conquistador if you want a couple more options for cheap creatures that pack a punch. Hellrider is also great in Isshin decks.

This is my personal preference, but I recently swapped out Coastline Marauders for Unquenchable Fury in my Isshin deck. Unquenchable Fury basically makes any of your creatures into a Coastline Marauders, and has less mana investment for its built-in recursion. I found that my Coastline Marauders often got multi-blocked. Unquenchable Fury front-loads that damage instead.

     NerdPounder: Both Vicious Conquistador & Pulse Tracker are 1/1 and 1/2 creatures that make each opponent lose 1 life on attack - not sure what you mean by "no text" lol.

     The token doublers are really good with Edgar's Eminence trigger, turning each Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge trigger into three hits instead of two. Have yet to play Kaya and Anointed Procession together at the same time, but really looking forward to dealing 10 damage with Purphoros up front for each cast. xD

     Last_Laugh: I used to run Reconnaissance in my old Kaalia deck and it was super good! Good call! =)

     NerdPounder: I like pretty much all of your suggestions! =D

     Vampire Socialite & Falkenrath Pit Fighter both used to be in the deck. They were actually both cut in favour of the instant speed draw spells (Village Rites, etc.), as I often found I pretty much always have creatures to sacrifice, but didn't always have cards to discard. The instant speed draw is pretty nice to have in response to board wipes as well, but since then I've also added Pact of the Serpent and Phyrexian Arena, so perhaps I don't need them anymore.

     There are a few life gain decks in my playgroup which was the inspiration for the inclusion of Sorin Markov, but you're right that he doesn't really add any value beyond that. Probably he'll be replaced with Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord.

     Smothering Tithe is just a really solid card, and really good with Anointed Procession, but you're right that it is distracting from my strategy and could likely be cut. Olivia Voldaren is definitely in that camp as well. In the couple months this deck has been together I've cast her a number of times but have never activated her lol.

     I do disagree about cutting Vicious Conquistador, though. Between it and Pulse Tracker in combination with Impact Tremors, Purphoros, God of the Forge and Sanctum Seeker they can really help with piling on damage over the course of the game.

     I used to use Legion's Landing  Flip when Ixalan was in Standard but had kind of forgotten this card existed haha, good call! Adanto Vanguard was also in that same deck, and it was a really great beater with great sticking power. I think it's going to find a home here as well.

     Thanks again for all the great suggestions and the upvote! =)

I changed my mind about Patron of the Vein, I misread it. I would probably cut Vicious Conquistador instead, as I think Legion's Landing  Flip would be a better 1-drop for EDH.

Thanks for the comment! As you alluded to, Aspirant is very much out of place and it is pretty weak in a vacuum. This deck had some notable changes in recent times to make it work more freely. I agree that card advantage is a massive deal, so that's why i have added cards such as Champion of Dusk with the combination of Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord which is an absolute powerhouse. Vicious Conquistador, Skymarcher Aspirant, Captivating Vampire, Dusk Legion Zealot and Unclaimed Territory have since been removed because they felt as they weren't making a big enough impact so i added 3 Viscera Seer to help manipulate the top of my deck along with 3 Cordial Vampire which if left unanswered can get out hand.

It would be nice to see another lord from Crimson Vow which doesn't just give a buff, like we saw with Captivating Vampire. I have also been thinking how good Aether Vial is here, it feels clunky a lot of the time with Sorin and my curve isn't the lowest but they have been some instances where it has shined so they are still some things to test!

I know this is a late response but i haven't been on here in some time. I hope to get an updated version out soon when i feel i am happy with where it is.
