What is a Man? (a hyper aggro Edgar Markov EDH)

Commander / EDH* Aggro RBW (Mardu) Tokens Tokens Vampires



"It was not by my hand that I am once again given flesh... I was called here by humans, who wish to pay ME tribute."

My first foray into Commander. I'd been feeling a creative mental block with my Modern vampires... and then I saw Edgard Markov, and that evil smile began to creep its way back onto my face. I'm used to thinking of EDH as a slow, grindy format. But holy mother of Alucard, a fast Commander deck, and lo and behold it's my beloved tribe.

Very much a work in progress, as I'm new to the format. The idea here is to abuse Edgar Markov's token generating ability as much as possible to flood the board. Not much mana is necessary unlike other EDH decks so I don't need much as far as rocks go, so space is freed up for removal spells.

Boros lands are surprisingly good at showing up when I need them the least. So going forward, most of my lands are going to be Rakdos or Orzhov. I tried to stay at 40 creatures but I can't help it, there are some who are simply too good to not use. Still trying to squeeze in Falkenrath Pit Fighter and Blood Artist. Not super into the Aristocrats theme but I'd be lying if I said there wasn't some degree of synergy.

Also why in Edgar's name did I wait so long to give Necropotence a try? You guys in the comments were right. Might actually be even better card draw than the Clamp.

I know low cost creatures can be weak draws in longer games and yeah, I do need some power cards. But in a deck where with a good hand I start oneshotting people on turn 6 if I'm not stopped, I really do want to hit the ground running early game.
