Post subject:  Edgar - Beatdown

I put this together on paper and online, so far I have played 8 games and won 5, I lost to a Intet "turn 5 infinite turns snorefest", I lost to Mizzix "lots of boardwipes", and I lost to Darien, King of Kjeldor, mostly cause Athreos, God of Passage played kingmaker. I think the deck is in a good place, strong but not overbearing. I feel like I contribute to interesting board states and for the most part it is interesting to play against. Am I missing any good vampires? Are there too many of one thing or not enough of another? I have been playing for quite some time so I might have whatever you suggest or will acquire it if it is very important to the deck. Thanks!

Well...i tried to think of a good vampire you don't have, but you've got it pretty much all covered. All I have to wonder about is if you have enough card draw in the deck. I keep finding myself wishing I had more card draw in my RWB decks. Do you feel like you could use more?

I feel like I need more, I just want to keep the creature count high and only Vampires, but I really want to add Shared Animosity and something to draw... Just not sure what to add.

You can start with Skullclamp

Yeah, I looked through my Edgar deck and Skullclamp seemed like a pretty solid option.

Oh, yeah, keep the vamp count high (Count Dracula? Count Von Count? :lol: ).

I find both Falkenrath Aristocrat and Yahenni, Undying Partisan work very well in my Edgar deck to weather the board wipes. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet does good double duty as a beatstick and graveyard removal.

Since you're running a creature-based white deck, I'd also suggest True Conviction. With a creature-based token generating deck, I'd consider Eldrazi Monument.

Also, you definitely should have New Blood in there - stealing someone else's Lord or type-matters card can have a major turnaround effect on the game. I've taken Bonescythe Sliver, Galecaster Colossus, and Azami, Lady of Scrolls in various games to great effect.

One last suggestion: Put in Kher Keep (a.k.a. "Vampire McDonald's") to feed your sacrifice effect vampires.

Good points, I will have to acquire these cards online (I end up playing more there). Thanks!
