MTG: Top 10 Vampires
Taking a look at the best vampires ever printed.
Now that the Twilight fad has died down a bit, I feel that it’s safe to finally make this list. Let’s take a look at the top ten vampires ever printed!

#10 Szadek, Lord Of Secrets
One of the most annoying mill cards, this card will get your opponent’s library down to nothing in only a few turns. If it becomes clear that they won’t be milled, use Snake Form and then have an X/X creature that can come in for some big damage! Of course, it will turn back to normal at the end of the turn, but if you play your cards right you’ll be able to surprise your opponent and do some serious damage. Despite this card’s mana cost, it still sees some play. It’s especially popular in EDH and I’ve seen it in many casual blue/black decks.
#9 Skeletal Vampire
A vampire that makes bats when it comes into play, can regenerate by sacrificing bats, and can take one bat and turn it into two. This card is sweet! It’s a little expensive to make extra bats, but that can sometimes really make a difference!
#8 Malakir Bloodwitch
Now we’re getting into the Zendikar block vampires. After that block many many cards were wiped off this list because of Zendikar’s heavy tribal vampire theme. Anyway, this card is sweet. It’s a solid body with flying for only five mana. Not only that, it has protection from white, meaning it isn’t likely to get removed from the game. However, when you tack on its last ability, you’ll find a card that is truly terrifying to see hit the board.
This card makes each opponent lose life equal to the number of vampires you control. That’s each player, not just one. Not only that, but you gain life equal to the amount of life lost this way. In multiplayer, this card is devastating. Even in a regular game it still has a large impact. It’s really only for tribal vampire decks, but it’s power is overwhelming!
