Our second list is the WB Blood Rites precon. It's a Vampire typal deck with lifegain and sacrifice subthemes. Duty-bound to lead with Clavileño, First of the Blessed is a growing reanimator. Decklist is here.
Charismatic Conqueror seems like an odd fit for a commander deck. In the format where bears have the least relevance, it's an easier to destroy Blind Obedience that gives your opponents an option and doesn't have extort. Then the card's effect is notably not worse than Blind Obediencein multiples.
If there's a way to easily keep bringing back Dusk Legion Sergeant (give each vampire "Persist" until end of turn) with a free sac outlet, Nearheath Stalker and Vengeful Vampire both have "Undying," which will cancel out the Persist counter. A fun little engine for anyone running a Mardu Vampire build.
did they seriously made Master of Dark Rites knowing that means 99% Edgar Markov casted Turn 2? Wow.
Not complaining, but....perplexed.
How do you get to 3WRB for Edgar by turn 2 with this? A simian spirit guide or mox/petal?
Not that a turn 3 Edgar is slow or anything, I just don’t see a reliable turn 2 with this.
You're right, for some reason I tought Edgar was a mana value 5 cards, not 6. Is still impressive they pushed so much of a mana dork especially for vampire decks.
Still crazy this can let you cast any Vampire, Changeling or Demon around CMC 5 or less turn 2 anyway.
