Vampires Love Blood on the Snow


Edgar, Charmed Groom is getting married!

Edgar, Charmed Groom // Edgar Markov's Coffin

However, despite shacking up with the title character in Innistrad: Crimson Vow as well as being a Vampire lord, it's interesting to note that Edgar actually does quite well by himself. A little too expensive to be used as a proper tribal lord, the best part of Edgar is that he's actually quite good as a standalone threat. He's well sized and unless your opponent can exile him, he's always ready to come back for more with some friends.

If only there was a Black deck in Standard that loved good value and having tons of great fodder creatures laying around...

Time Stamps:

03:48 - Match 1

27:35 - Match 2

49:04 - Match 3

This is the deck that won the first event of Crimson Vow Standard, played by Felipe Landim to first place in the Crokeyz Tournament that happened barely a day or two after the release of Innistrad: Crimson Vow.

Lolth, Spider Queen
Blood on the Snow
Fell Stinger

In it we see Edgar, Charmed Groom // Edgar Markov's Coffin slot perfectly into the already very solid Mono-Black shell based around Lolth, the Spider Queen. This engine of value creatures like Eyetwitch and Shambling Ghast paired up with sacrificial and grindy effects like Deadly Dispute, The Meathook Massacre, and the new Fell Stinger allows the deck to simultaneously apply pressure but also set up a monumentally excellent defense against creature decks.

[Vanishing Verse] [Professor of Symbology]

Vanishing Verse
Professor of Symbology

The addition of White of course adds Edgar to the deck, but also opens up Vanishing Verse as an excellent removal option, as well as Professor of Symbology for even more great creature-based card advantage.

This is an excellent update to an exciting archetype and a great first step for the format!
