Right on, I added the Fatal Push. After investing in Bloodghast, I decided to make it a little less budget, short of Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord (for now). I also temporarily added two Yahenni, Undying Partisan for both the haste and sac opportunity. I honestly am not sure if this card is good or not, but it does help with the 3 cmc part of my mana.

DemMeowsephs on Sacrificing a creature to one …

1 month ago

Greetings everyone,

I'm aware that I can't sacrifice one creature to multiple separate abilities, but I was a bit confused about whether I can chose a creature to sacrifice from one ability, and then before that resolves sacrifice that very creature with a sacrifice ability IT has- kind of complicated so let me give an example.

If I have Yahenni, Undying Partisan, and Basal Sliver, can I for example, target Basal Sliver with Yaheeni's sac ability, and then also sacrifice Basal sliver with its own ability, giving me both outcomes? I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but just wanted to make sure. Thanks!

They basically went "No homo" with Chandra and Nissa in the War of the Spark novels, in a turn that peeved off the chunk of the fanbase that is LGBT+. Chandra is still canonically omni/pansexual. They screwed the pooch badly.

Niko Aris is nonbinary, going by they/them. They had a big part in the Kaldheim stories. Yahenni, Undying Partisan is nonbinary, from Kaladesh. And its not just because of their race being aether-elementals, Gonti uses he/him. Phenax, God of Deception is an example of a villainous LGBT+ character. He's attracted to men, though not sure whether he's ONLY attracted to them. But he will curse women he feels are taking "his" object of affection away from him.

Hey, nice budget version.

I prefer a lower mana curve with Vamps having Edgar and Ruinous Ultimatum as the high end. With Patriarch's Bidding and Haunting Voyage as major recovery.

Here's two combos that give you repeatable value or can potentially win the game without having to attack with Vamps which in some situations is helpful in Commander.

Oathsworn Vampire + Cruel Celebrant + Yahenni, Undying Partisan is a Vamp combo because of Edgar's eminence to create as many Vamp tokens as mana you have available from repeatedly casting Oathsworn from your graveyard. This combo makes die triggers from Celebrant by sacing Oathsworn which is what lets you cast Oathsworn from your graveyard. Combine these Vamps with Cordial Vampire to make your Vamp army powerful with +1/+1 counters. Combine this combo with Captivating Vampire to gain control of a lot of your opponents creatures.

Bontu's Monument is nonVamp card that can replace Celebrant in the combo and it reduces the cost of Oathsworn to only one black mana. Blood Artist can also replace Celebrant. Viscera Seer is another Vamp sac outlet that could replace Yahenni in the combo.

Throne of the God-Pharaoh combines with Captivating Vampire and other Vamps to drain all your opponents life by tapping Vamps. Captivating can gain control of a creature and that creature can be your own creature repeatedly which means that if opponents don't have creatures to steal then you can continue activating Captivating.

Here's some suggestions of how to improve the manabase on a budget.

Vault of Champions and Spectator Seating are excellent lands in multiplayer, but they be out of budget range.

Good luck with your deck.

Looks like a fun list! I have a Chainer deck on my profile if you wanna check it out. I've been playing him for a few years now, but I'm still working out some of the pending changes to my list.

Card draw to consider: Night's Whisper is a second sign in blood, and worth running as efficient card draw. Ransack the Lab has also felt really good. Treacherous Blessing has been worth the life loss (almost) every time I play it. Syphon Mind is decent, too. I also am not a fan of Reliquary Tower because usually you want to be discarding down to hand size to drop reanimation targets in the GY. I'd look at Castle Locthwain or basic swamp in its place.

Removal: Defile , Dismember , Feed the Swarm , and Force of Despair are all great to think about. I'd run any of these over Murder and probably Doom Blade.

Sac Outlets: I'd cut Nantuko Husk and Phyrexian Ghoul, as their effects aren't that great while costing 3 cmc. At 3 cmc, I'd prefer Woe Strider and Yahenni, Undying Partisan .

Ramp: Dark Ritual is a classic and probably worth running. Myriad Landscape is slow, but generally has pleased me when I see it. Nirkana Revenant is another source of big B mana. Expensive to cast, but cheap if you are reanimating it. Expedition Map gets you Cabal Coffers or Urborg.

Finally, I'm not sure that Liliana, Untouched by Death is pulling her weight here. Hope that is helpful :)

There are two builds for vamps as far as I am aware - go wide with Drana, Liberator of Malakir , and this type of 'sacrifice drain and grind' list.

A card worth considering as a 1-of in all those vampire brews - Blade of the Bloodchief . This equipment is a lot better than it looks in the tribe due to the way it works with lifelink to push out of burn range and lets you spread threats over smaller vampires in stalled board states.

In most of my time playing vamps, Kalistra highborn has been really clunky - keeping the mana up for it disrupts the deck a lot. Its fine when the game grinds out, but even then paying 1 whenever you sac hurts.

Aetherborn doesn't have straightforward synergies beyond vampire, but lifelink/deathtouch means it trades up with a lot of creatures and strategies. Valentin, Dean of the Vein  Flip deserves consideration, as does Yahenni, Undying Partisan .

Some aristocrats additions worth considering: Viscera Seer Bastion of Remembrance Vindictive Vampire Yahenni, Undying Partisan

Erebos, Bleak-Hearted can give you card draw and removal options.

The equipment package makes it look like there might be a Voltron sub-theme to get Elenda big and punch in. Fallen Ideal would give evasion and Dark Privilege would give protection in an aristocrats-y way. And Rogue's Passage could be a nice swap for Reliquary Tower if you're not drawing very much.

Swapped Yahenni, Undying Partisan for Daemogoth Woe-Eater for better beater value and it's own sac boon.
