Dusk Feaster
 
For Thanksgiving, we're looking at a couple of cards with themes relevant to the week (and in this case, pretty scary artwork). This particular vampire doesn't really make use of the tribe's usual mechanical themes of consumption, but it does like to get together with friends and varied card types, which is just as good for Thanksgiving. It lacks the pure efficiency of Tombstalker or Necropolis Fiend, and so is unlikely to show up in high-level constructed settings, but does have pretty good stats and a relevant creature type, especially for limited settings (and delirium is surprisingly easy to use in draft and sealed).

Dusk Feaster is pretty much meant as a Limited toy, but it’s actually a pretty decent one. 7 mana for a 4/5 flying creature seems inefficient…but 5 toughness puts it out of range for a lot of kill spells, and it's sufficiently evasive. Shadows Over Innistrad isn't especially fast in Limited, either, so you have time to cast a 7-mana creature.
 
Of course, the second half of this is Delirium, which make this a 5-mana 4/5. The payoff isn’t amazing on the surface…but it’s an evasive creature that can close the game out. It’s not the easiest task to assemble Delirium to cast this on-curve, but it’s a solid bomb to build to.
 
Also, this is not too bad in Vampire decks, for those of you so inclined. Vampires never mind having another decently powerful beater at the top of their curve.
