    vampire night(not hawk)

    …get it?

    • guest

      …because it doesn’t fly? …but is vampire knighthawk in every other way?

      • Daniel Kaine Allen

        Except that it is one mana less, so what you’re getting for your mana is really good.

    • Christopher Knighton

      Vampire Litehawk?
      Shampire Nighthawk?

    • TogetherAlone

      Vampaether Nothawk?

    • Dave

      Vampire Noflighthawk!

    • Zombie

      It’s Vampire Nightwalk

      • Dave

        I yield. This is perfect.

  • Ultramegalord

    So close to vampire nighthawk…………

  • magiccounters

    for 2 mana very good :D

  • Cthulhooo

    Isn’t this too strong? Isn’t green supposed to have strongest creatures? How the hell do you beat deathtouch, lifelink + good stats for 2 mana?!

    • TogetherAlone

      because its not as easy to cast, plus green is getting stuff like 3/3s and 3/4s at two mana

      • Cthulhooo

        Are you refering to Lambholdt Pacifist? It has nice stats but not without some strings attached. Also what has 3/4 stats for 2 mana in green currently? Can’t figure it out.

        • TogetherAlone

          The two new rares, greenwheel liberator, and greenbelt rampagerwhcih is actually 1 mana, it has some shenanigans, but could reliably be cast on turn two.

          • Cthulhooo

            So how’s that liberator looking in standard without khans fetches? Is it reliable?

          • james hegge

            i give you evolving wild/renegade map and implement of ferocity (for green). so theoretically 1 out 5 sounds pretty reliable.

          • TogetherAlone

            with green belt rampager and evolving wilds yes

  • Scathain

    Wow. I would rate this at about the same power level as Vampire Nighthawk, perhaps a tad better for modern, no flying but 1 less mana. I’ll probably have to get one for my monoblack commander deck. Perhaps monoblack modern will be making a resurgence.

  • Shagoth

    Vampire Night
    In terms of cards that weren’t broken but definitely didn’t need an upgrade, Nighthawk was pretty high on that list. As I’ve said before, I’m not sure if I like the power creep on already power creeped card. Also flying in modern is weird because it’s a MAJOR advantage for a mostly ground bound metagame, but if you loose the other two and keep flying, it won’t have as much oomph. Besides, death touch practically basically evasion.

  • Teddy Gillespie

    i like how all the best vampires in standard won’t be from SOI lol

        This is easily the best comment on this entire site

        • Zombie

          I feel so appreciated

  • Daniel Johnson

    Vampire Nightwalk!

  • Zombie

    The name currently being floated for this is:

    Vampire Nightwalk.

  • space-coyote

    Many a Child of Night will be kicked to the curb in casual vampire decks

  • Edwin Marín Castro

    I thought Yahenni was the only Aetherborn/Vampire.

    • Arcus Diabolus

      Its rare, but not unheard of. Gonti meantions he had a few in his service

      • Edwin Marín Castro

        Yes, you’r right.

    • Zombie

      Aetherborn becomes “vampires” when they start siphoning energy from living sources. They do it because it apparently lets them live longer than the normal Aether fuel they’re provided by the Consulate or something.

  • Deadly Berry

    Balanced!

  • Miles Rinesmith

    Almost a Vampire Nighthawk but no flying and 1 cmc less.

  • Vizzerdrix

    So flying is worth 1mana in the eyes of wotc

    • Mr.Mayhem631

      Not quiiiiite how that works.

      • Vizzerdrix

        Ttiton shorethief 1/2 for u, storm crow 1u 1/2 but it has flying, are you going to argue with a storm crow??!? I don’t think so, you will die!

        • Mr.Mayhem631

          Meren Storm wins in a fight

      • Hedronal

        I still want to eventually work out how much everything would be worth, just for fun. So much inconsistency there as that’s not the system’s base. It’s like doing the same thing with english pronunciation from letters.

        Step 1: Fish
        2: Replace F with gh, like in tough: ghish.
        3: Replace i with o, like in women: ghosh.
        4: Replace sh with ti, like in action, function, etc.: ghoti.

        Like that, but in mtg.

    • Deadly Berry

      Ornithopter is 0 mana. AWWWW…

    • xavi

      penguin nighthawk: penguins do not fly.

  • Phoenix UNBENCHED

    i literally just came

    to the conclusion that I really love this card

  • Jude

    …bfz vampires: existed
    Soi vamps: tried….?
    Kaladesh vamps: looks like this game needs helps from….oh….i dunno, realf***ing vampires?
    These things….theres only two but theyre highly impactful and its scary

    • Zombie

      Trying to copy my majesty and failing miserably.

      CAN’T BEAT THE BEST BABY NOT EVEN CLOOOSE

  • Daniel Kaine Allen

    I think Vampire Nightwalk is the clear winner here.

  • Happy The Cat

    well they gave red back shock, better give black a new nighthawk. that’s fair

    • Zombie

      “Oh but it doesn’t have flying, that means it’s fair!” – WOTC

      But it still has 3 toughness…

      “F*ckin deal with it you dumb Red player!”

      • Happy The Cat

        I could… if you reprinted lightning bolt…
        “haha, what? are you serious? why would we give red a card that sees play in modern?! none of us play red in our Junk decks”
