Quote from OCPunisherThis isn't Lorwyn/Shadowmoor Standard. People play Titans and Dragons and Eldrazi (oh my).
Quote from ArdeynHi there!
Since I do play a Bleeder Version Drana with a Vampire Subtheme I'd like to share some experiences I had playing the deck.
Try to get more draw/card advantage into the deck. Recently, when I played the deck I drew a fistful of cards with Well of Lost Dreams which fits perfectly into the theme and is a nice mini-combo with the talisman you're running. MVP however was Decree of Pain, which reset the board and drew me a dozen cards.
The massive draw led to a Demonic Tutor finding Sorin Markov followed by a Corrupt taking out one player, and almost killing another through Sanguine Bond. ... and Yawgmoth's Will let me do this again, despite Sorin getting killed after the first stunt.
All this was fueled by Cabal Coffers, which is definitely a great investment if you like playing mono black.
This is just a short recap to give you some ideas, what would be great inclusions in your list.
Also good cards in a (draining) vampire build are:
Drana, Kalatria Bloodchief(removal on a stick), Kalastria Highborn, Patriarch's Bidding, Syphon Mind (which happens to work great with the surprisingly good Sangromancer), Ambition's Cost, Plague Wind and Enslave (for those opposing generals, indestructibles or other creatures that are nice to have).
I'm curious as to where you're headed with your list!
Quote from Sanity"s_EclipseHow has Bloodghast been for you? I have a set of them, I just haven't bothered in EDH 'cause I don't have any stax pieces, which seems to be where you usually find him. And speaking of Highborn, these two vamps plus that one mana scry vamp wizard was a mini-combo, at least in 60 card. Sac the ghast to scry, pay B for the Highborn, play a land and get the ghast back. Like I said on my build, I never saw Highborn and Falkenrath Noble as competing for the same spot, I just saw them as redundancy on different points of the curve.
You thinking about adding Dark Imposter? Maybe over Child of Night, since Markov Patrician is slightly stronger?
2 things on your mana: I'm thinkin' I'll add Temple of the False Gods to my build, thanks for that :). And, 36 just seems low to me, especially with 7+ mana spells. Maybe I just need to slot in some draw over a land in my build...
Quote from CrabManWhy do you numerate cards in deck like that? It's very bad because I can't import such deck. Please dont do it.
Also if you have 30 swamps in the deck, you get 101 card.
Quote from GFireflyEI numerate cards like this so that I and those viewing my build can visualize my curve easier. Others do this aswell, and it's a growing trend. Get used to it.
The deck isn't meant to be imported so you can cockatrice it or whatever online. It's meant to be collected and built. Talked about and discussed. Enjoyed and played with.
Thanks for pointing out a possible extra card....I'll look into it.
Cavern of Souls is way out of budget and not even released yet. Couldn't add it to my deck, even if I wanted to.
Hall of the Bandit Lord is a good thought, though I only have 1 copy of that card and it's going into my Intet 'go big or go home' build.
Thanks for the suggestions.
Quote from CrabManYou can use deck http://deckstats.net/ to visualize, it would be much better.
Quote from Sanity"s_EclipseOr, we could numerate it like we do on this site so we don't have to jump between multiple sites. And to make it harder for someone to netdeck us, of course :p. lol
On topic...I don't remember if we've talked about this, but I feel that Lashwrithe is a much superior card to the original one. It comes in with the germ, so it's automatically a threat, and you can mix and match the cost you pay to equip it. No mana? Pay some life. Split it, since it's early game? No problemo. Have the mana? Pay a simple BB and you're golden.
Quote from NC_JustinI run with vampire tribal but use Olivia Voldaren as my commander. Have you thought of using her? There are some good red vampires like Markov Blademaster and Rakish Heir. Plus Olivia costs less than Anawon. Just a suggestion
Quote from TylerStegmanSince ur on the whole loss of life thing... Have you throught about adding sanguine bond and exquisite bond combo?
Quote from TylerStegmanmy bad for the oversight. I thought it was called exquisite "Bond" not blood hints my mistake.
