Flashback Friday: BR Vamps GP Singapore 2011


It is pretty obvious that the Vampires deck archetype will have a comeback in Standard in Shadows over Innistrad. As a tribute, I am recalling and sharing the decklist that I loved which gave me my first professional point in Magic in my first ever Grand Prix tournament. The event was GP Singapore way back in June 2011 and I finished in 54th place out of the 600+ participants.

Here is the BR Vampires that I played:

4 Bloodghast
4 Gatekeeper of Malakir
4 Kalastria Highborn
4 Vampire Lacerator
3 Pulse Tracker
2 Viscera Seer
2 Hero of Oxid Ridge
2 Manic Vandal

2 Arc Trail
4 Go for the Throat
4 Lightning Bolt
1 Dismember
1 Dark Tutelage

4 Blackcleave Cliffs
4 Dragonskull Summit
4 Lavaclaw Reaches
3 Marsh Flats
2 Verdant Catacombs
6 Swamp

1 Manic Vandal
1 Arc Trail
1 Dark Tutelage
1 Dismember
2 Act of Aggression
1 Batterskull
1 Doom Blade
4 Duress
2 Skinrender
1 Shatter

The GP Singapore 2011 Coverage can be found here.

I am looking forward to play this archetype again in Shadows over Innistrad Standard with the new creatures and spells to utilize. I can already foresee the look of the deck given the card spoilers that I have checked. Speaking of which, I think the full SOI card spoiler is already out so I might check that one in detail and come up with a draft decklist so stay tuned for that one.

That is about it for this Flashback Friday post. Until the next one and thanks for reading.
