Undying Evil is actually meant to be used more as a combo piece than as one time protection or recursion effect; it essentially functions as a one drop creature with undying since it can make any creature in the deck gain undying. It's especially fun with something like Wurmcoil Engine, though at that point it'd just be overkill lol.

Fleshwrither is a great card to have since it puts creatures directly onto the field. Good for searching out things like Endling , Sengir Autocrat , or Vindictive Vampire for value or to close games out. It actually technically won me a game today by placing Vindictive Vampire on the field, after which I gave it Phyresis and finished an excessively long game out of nowhere.

I think that my cuts will be Deathgreeter and Bontu's Monument . I'm really kind of iffy about cutting them, but I have three other Artist effects that actually ping opponents. The cost reduction from the artifact is nice, but most of my creatures aren't terribly expensive and I haven't really had many issues in having sufficient mana for my turns.

I'd definitely welcome more cut suggestions, though, from you or anyone else who wants to comment. Anyway, thanks for your advice!

I think it would be funny to have one combodeck. Bontu's Monument / Vindictive Vampire , Reassembling Skeleton / Oathsworn Vampire , Pitiless Plunderer and Ravenous Harpy . The monument is from an older set, but i think it would be okay. A free sac-outlet was in Kaladesh, but i think the Harpy is fine. A tutor like Forerunner of the Coalition for more consistancy.

Like the brew!

Don't you think Cruel Celebrant would be better than Vindictive Vampire ?

Other suggestions would be to remove Ashen Rider it’s to expensive. You have Archon of Justice and that is enough. You don’t need both.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose should be in the deck.

Remove Sadistic Hypnotist only because de it’s not an instant speed sac outlet.

Other death trigger life loss cards need to be added Vindictive Vampire , Pious Evangel  Flip.

To help get lands in to play you should look at Burnished Hart and Knight of the White Orchid .

To help better control your opponents creatures I suggest Dictate of Erebos and gravepact

V6e6n6om I’d rather play Vindictive Vampire or Falkenrath Noble . Corpse knight’s not a death trigger so Teysa can’t double it, and I don’t have enough token cards to take advantage of it otherwise. I could see it in a list with 20-30 token generators, or something more budget, but right now, it doesn’t do enough.

My not a fan of Vindictive Vampire , because you play the card on turn 4 and it do nothing. The planeswalker give you vampires +1/0 and lifelink until your next turn and you have normaly Dome vampires to protect it.

Quag Vampires is a sleeper in your hand and in the late Game you need something more impactfull. 3mana for a 2/2 is to slow

Springleaf Drum seems strong i will try it

Mabye Bloodthrone Vampire for Goblin Bombardment ?

Falkenrath Noble is actually worse because it hits only one player per trigger and relies too much on your opponents to play many creatures. Stat-wise it might be better because of added evasion in form of flying but I'd actually stick to the ground with Vindictive Vampire dealing 3-4 damage and healing me for 1.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good but not here - it's place is in some more midrange decks rather than full on aggro. On the other hand Vampire Nocturnus has POTENTIAL to be amazing but... in 3-color deck it has too much % chance to whiff. I've actually counted and there are 41 black cards and it might not be enough to make it worth inclusion.

If I'd make it more similar to my Aggro/Aristocrats deck I'd swap:

  • Sorin, Solemn Visitor --> Vindictive Vampire - I see planeswalkers as sorcery spells because there's a very high chance that they'll be killed during the whole turn cycle. So this Sorin is for +1/+0 and lifelink OR 2/2 token... Is it worth 4 CMC? Unfortunately, I don't think so.
  • Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet --> Quag Vampires - low CMC aggro vampire that has potential to be unblockable with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and come with a few +1/+1 counters later in the game.
  • Adanto Vanguard --> Bloodthrone Vampire - white vampire for black one and I personally don't see this Vanguard as powerful, while with all those ping abilites on board we can easily machine gun opponents to death (or close enough to be taken down by buffed up vampire lady).
Also some ideas to consider: Springleaf Drum might be considered a ramp spell - tap token and this for a Birds of Paradise effect in non-green deck. For a more combo-oriented build or just pure value I'd maybe add Phyrexian Altar ? Besides combo with Oathsworn Vampire I've already told you about it can just enable Aristocrats effects or act as a ramp card, maybe for instant speed interaction?

Other than that I'm recently questioning the value of Stromkirk Noble since it's not card... What do you think about it?

Vindictive Vampire or Zulaport Cutthroat are good aristocrats cards but have a too high cmc for a aggro deck same as Falkenrath Noble (i think noble is a bit better. You drain just one opponent, but it trigger also by opponent creatures.

What do you think about Vampire Nocturnus for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet ? With 45 Black cards it is nearly 50% (good with tutors). Make your tokens 3/2 flyers for big swings.
