i should be able to help you as i have been playing on and off since the 6th edition and have quite an extensive collection of magic cards.

what format is the deck, ie standard, modern, extended, commander etc

If you can list your deck with number of each card you are using it would make things easier.

also a basic idea of what you want the deck to do will help

and a rough idea of what you can budget for the deck is a plus.

PS.. without seeing your deck i can recommend 2 or 3 cards straight up.

cavern of souls: while an expensive card to buy it is a must have in almost any deck or format.

lingering souls: almost every deck that i have gone up against has 4 of these for the cheaper flashback cost.

vexing devil: a turn 1 4/3 that puts your opponent on the back foot from the start is always good

there is no 'overkil'l, there is only 'open fire' and 'time to reload'
It's an age old dilemma. You want to set everything on fire, but you can't steal stuff while it's burning. Don't let your passions run away with you! Do things in the correct order! Pillage, THEN burn!

this is a vamps deck which i built for a friend about 3 weeks ago and it seemes to work quite well against most decks. its aggro

4 Blood Artist
3 Child of Night
2 Falkenrath Aristocrat
1 Markov Blademaster
1 Olivia Voldaren
2 Rakish Heir
4 Stromkirk Captain
4 Stromkirk Noble
Creatures [21]

1 Curse of Bloodletting
3 Doom Blade
1 Exquisite Blood
2 Pillar of Flame
4 Thatcher Revolt
3 Thunderous Wrath
1 Sorin, lord of innistrad
Spells [15]

4 cavern of souls
3 isolated chapel
8 Mountain
1 Stensia Bloodhall
8 Swamp
Lands [24]

the problem is that some of the cards you bought are no longer legal in standard, however they are usable in a modern vamps deck.

currently standard decks can only be made up from the following:
•Scars of Mirrodin (until October 5, 2012)
•Mirrodin Besieged (until October 5, 2012)
•New Phyrexia (until October 5, 2012)
•Magic 2012 (until October 5, 2012)
•Innistrad
•Dark Ascension
•Avacyn Restored

what is the difference between standard and modern games? however usually we dont care about whether cards are "legal" or not, we just like playing games.

however i keep getting trashed by a friend who uses a primordial hydra then soul bounds it to something which give it hexproof and my other friend uses chandras outrage to do 2 damage to every card on the field

the main problem i have with the deck is that it usually takes a while for anything to be brought out, which is why i ordered quite a few 1 or 2 mana summons

standard is the latest 7 sets cards, where as modern is made up of 37 sets of cards all the way back to 8th edition.

obviously one of your friends runs a green/blue deck and the other sounds like a red/? agrro.

to deal with your two friends decks i would include either of the following:
oblivion ring(exile card from the field) or surgical extraction(target a card in players graveyard and remove every copy they have in the game)

and if you really want to be a bastard run this card and pay 6 mana on your turn when they have 4 or more creatures in play. http://store.tcgplayer.com/Products....c&Name=Killing Wave&partner=MTGTCG

ah ok, thanks for the info.

the oblivion ring wouldnt work on the hydra or chandra's outrage, as the hyrda is hexproof, and outrage is a sorcery.

sergical extraction isnt that usefull either as they only have one of each card in their deck

would killing wave bypass the hexproof-ness of the hydra? if so, thats awsome

you use oblivin ring on either the hydra or the Elgaud Shieldmate before the other comes into play, or something with deathtouch and first strike will make mince meat of the hydra.

another card to consider is wurmcoil engine because of the extra creatures

there is no 'overkil'l, there is only 'open fire' and 'time to reload'

but when oblivion ring is removed then the creature comes back, and he has several nutralizes in his deck

the thing is that anything with deathtouch, means that he just wont block it if i attack.but i agree that they are usefull for defending.

wurmcoil engine looks EPIC, however the cost puts me off for a while
