Last week I brewed up a synergistic Vampires list based off Tom Ross’.
Today I put it to the test in the tournament practice room on Magic Online. Here’s the list:
Vampires by Sean Ridgeley
The matches are Twin, Abzan Company, Burn, and Grixis Delver. See for yourself what happened below.
Company was the only true rough match here. The lesson I’m taking from it is we can’t keep weak hands against them, and should shy away from even mediocre ones.
Despite the poor record, I still feel good about Vampires, partly because the testing I did before recording these rounds went better overall (I’d estimate a 60% win rate, with some Abzan Company games included in that), most of the games were close, I misplayed a bit (as it goes with new decks), and I think cutting a Sign in Blood for another Victim of Night could make a fairly big impact.
Bottom line: I’ll be taking this to a daily soon. Until then!
