Adanto Vanguard looks perfect for this.

xStormyx Thank you very much for the feedback! I am definitely going to invest in Radiant Destiny and Sanctum Seeker , as well as Adanto Vanguard . I would absolutely LOVE to run an Elenda, the Dusk Rose if I can budget it someday.

And as much as I like them, I think you're right about the enchantments. Creature creation is more what I'm going for.

Thanks again!

If you can get them, Radiant Destiny and Sanctum Seeker are incredibly powerful, and would really help you if you're trying to be competitive. Also I would personally suggest Bishop's Soldier , Adanto Vanguard , and Sadistic Skymarcher as solid early drops. Also, Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Champion of Dusk , and Twilight Prophet are very powerful cards. Good luck, vampires are awesome! +1

Hey man! Nice deck. One main suggestion, with a few others too.

  • Have you considered splashing Green for ramp, colour fixing, and card draw? I just think that Green has some answers to the problems that you might face, such as big flyers and grindy matchups such as Control and Golgari. If you want to, I could remake this deck to have Green in it, along with a sideboard. This remake would include cards like District Guide , Incubation Druid / Drover of the Mighty and Vivien Reid if that sounds cool to you.

If you don't like the idea of splashing Green, here are some other suggestions

  • I would swap the Angel of Grace in the mainboard with the Lyra in the sideboard.

  • I'd take the two Adanto Vanguard s and add in 2x Shalai. This is so you can protect your guys. It also gives a mana sink late-game.

  • Have you tried putting in a single Shalai in your sideboard instead of anything else? I think it would really helpful against decks with a high amount of removal.

Good Luck,

Definitely helps! I'm starting to wonder if the Cast Down are necessary. I could get rid of those and the Adanto Vanguard and put 3 Knight of Malice and three Imperious Oligarch . I like the Malice a little more because of all the white enchantment removal.

Thanks for the feedback FullmetalWess! I agree with Adanto Vanguard . It just seemed like a powerful 2 drop. The more I play with Imperious Oligarch the more I like her. The afterlife helps set up the mid game and the vigilance turns out quite useful. I guess I'm running black mainly so I can try to stick to my game plan as much as possible, instead of playing another decks game.
