    Giving PW deathtouch and deathtouch to everything is pretty crazy.

    silversmote ghoul seems pretty underrated. it basically offers our deck with another bloodghast. Things really add up when that and bloodghasts start getting saced. Also it works as Pay 2 to draw a card and boost our vamp with cordial vampire out.

    With the current meta of Uropiles and the like. I think we can go for the grindy route. With thoughtseize and stuff like Kalitas, traitor of ghet it allows for us to deal with uro decks. What do y'all think?

    how do you feel about these cards?:
    vampire nocturnus? i always see it as a great card but not constant +2/+1 and evasion is amazing but about 50% of the time ( vial plus lands ) is just a 3/3
    champion of the dusk?even at 5 cmc with sorin can be very strong, be able to play it and draw an average of 2 cards is great, is worth a slot even a 5 cmc ?
    aether vial? considering you can't cast sorin,and late game is a dead card is worth running it?


    Nocturnus is pretty great. he comes in and usually can finish a game depending on your board at the time. With tools like Zealot, Castle Lochtwain, horizon lands and fetchlands it can basically cause a shuffle, so you should have multiple opportunities in activating Nocturnus.

    Champion of Dusk can work but I feel with all these draw tools, it's not a must have. However, a 5cmc 4/4 with card draw is pretty good and could be cheated in by Sorin.

    Not a necro I think most of us were waiting for this Zendikar set to see of any fun vamps on the horizon. Smile

    SO far I havent seen anything that is modern playable.

    "what do you think about Nullpriest of Oblivion?"


    The one downside of the Kicker mechanic is that its anti synergistic with vial and Sorin.

    Nullpriest of Oblivion is cool, but if you can ever get to 6 mana in vamps, you're probably not going to win anyway.

    On top of that, we dont have super scary creatures to bring back. A Nocturnus is cool but other than that I dont see this being value town.

    This card strikes me as great for Commander tho, where the game is slower with scarier creatures.

    -

    However, this card does make me think about Morophon the boundless.

    Sorin can get him out turn 3, and null priest can bring him back later.

    This seems more like kitchen table magic now, but maybe theres something here.

    -

    New drana is cool, but 5 mana, no evasion, takes a turn to swing before doing anything...

    With sorin maybe shes better, but cards that rely on other cards to be useful usually arent. (Unless its a backbreaking effect)

    The 5 drops I think that are good for vial/sorin vamps would be bloodwitch and blood baron since they have great evasion.

    -

    The new nighthawk has potential but I think he would be the finisher.

    Id imagine a weenie vamps deck, with the new nighthawk as the finisher, with IOKs and Thoughtseize to eliminate threats and fill the opponent's graveyard.

    Ex: 4/3 Flying, Lifelink, Deathtouch makes racing an absolute Nightmare for the opponent.

    -

    The Nighthawk is slow, but if you build a hand hate, control style of deck I think he would shine.

    Part of me wonders what Jund would think of this card...








    What are your thoughts on Zargas? Since right now there are always some PW going on, a Sorin'd in Zargas can ding a planeswalker after a boardwipe. Depending on your deck, it can come in at 4 or 5.

    Also I've been having some fun with Silversmote, bloodghasts and Sorins. Helix for 3, sac smote for card draw and the ghoul comes back by end of turn. With Cordial in the field it's basically pay 2 to draw a card and give all your guys +1s

    I know, it's basically a necropost but what is everyone's thoughts on the new toys we got in M21 and Zendikar Rising? The new Nighthawk seems like a really dangerous toy especially with how most decks is guaranteed to have at least 3 card types in the graveyard.

    Would this work with Sorin Imperious Bloodlord's -3? Like -3 Sorin, and then pay kicker cost? If it doesn't, it still works as an Gifted Aetherborn replacement at 2 if you want to vary things out.
