    This is the discard outlet vampires needed

  • Jacob Kodicovic

    I like this guy. He’ll go great as an inexpensive lord in my B/R Vampire deck

  • Dr. Burn Crow

    I don’t fully understood this. But okay.

    Is it me or rakdos vampires are extremely competitive on standard. We going to see a vamp top 8?

    • Zombie

      This just effectively turned on the R/B Vampires archetype, it’s the reliable engine the deck needed.

      But is the deck still strong enough to top 8? Maybe? But we’ll have to see what other decks come out of EMN as well, because tbh it looks like if a Big Green/ Ramp deck exists in the upcoming Standard, then Decimator of Provinces is going to warp the new Standard around itself.

      If that’s the case, then a R/B Vampires Madness deck likely won’t be fast enough to beat decks that ramp into Decimator of Provinces or the decks built to beat it.

  • Zombie

    What an incredible R/B Vampires Madness engine.

    This is the primo card that Falkenrath Gorger was looking for to enable the deck.

    Gorger gives all your Vampires Madness, this lets you trigger Madness on demand while pumping your team.

  • Kevan Kramer

    As a vampire player, I love this card. I still hope/want more great vampires.

    Turn 1
    Land, Falkenrath Gorger
    Turn 2
    Attack (-2), Land, This
    Turn 3
    Land, Activate – Stromkirk Comdemned, Discard – Incorrigible Youths, Resolve Madness, Resolve +1/+/1 to Vampires, Attack with 3/2 + 3/3 + 5/4.
    And the rest is up to you…

    • Hedronal

      Being fair, it gets harder when you realize you need a turn one untapped land that gets black and red mana, not that that doesn’t exist in standard.

      • Hillbill

        With 4 Foreboding Ruins, enough lands of both colors and a bit of luck ;-). No seriously, I had this same play (without this new vampire of course, instead using Heir of Falkenrath/Ravenous Bloodseeker) more than once and had very cool games using a underdog deck a my LGS.
        No star-alignment needed
