Rivals of Ixalan Brews, pt. 6 – Midrange Vampires

What did we have before Rivals?

[draft]Gifted Aetherborn
Metallic Mimic
Yahenni, Undying Partisan
Inspiring Cleric
Legion Conquistador
Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle
Sanctum Seeker
Vona, Butcher of Magan
Legion’s Landing[/draft]

Yes, there are other good ones as well, like we saw during the Pro Tour in a monowhite aggressive deck, but we are going for a more midrangish version here, albeit with some synergies.

What does the new set bring? Quite a few cards… but much too concentrated on four. We have [card]Elenda, the Dusk Rose[/card], [card]Twilight Prophet[/card] and [card]Bishop of Binding[/card] on that coveted spot, while we have [card]Champion of Dusk[/card] on five and [card]Legion Lieutenant[/card] on two. It actually depends highly on which way we want to go when we make decisions on these. But we are here to midrange value our opponents out, so let’s go that way.
