Creature — Vampire Soldier
As long as Adanto Vanguard is attacking, it gets +2/+0.
Pay 4 life: Adanto Vanguard gains indestructible until end of turn. (Damage and effects that say "destroy" don't destroy it.)
Adanto Vanguard Discussion

Ok, so I cracked vampires code on arena. You need Adanto Vanguard , Benalish Marshal , Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord , Skymarcher Aspirant , Vampire of the Dire Moon , and maybe Knight of the Ebon Legion , Godless Shrine

I would definitely add 4x Knight of the Ebon Legion and 4x Adanto Vanguard . Those are two of the best cards vampires have to offer right now. I'd probably cut Epicure of Blood and Skymarch Bloodletter right away. Other suggestions would be to add another Sorin for the full set and a few more Champion of Dusks and a little less Sanctum Seekers. I'm running WB Vampires a lot on arena right now and that's worked for me.

Hey there. I got to say, I really like your take on this tribe in standard. I tried to make it work back in the day when Rivals came out, was rather casual fun but still fun. ;) (Before that I used the vampire tribe shell with Crested Sunmare shenanigans. Great times.)
There are only a few things I'd like to point out I might do differently here. Probably things you already considered but nontheless here you go.
I very much like the idea of somehow draining the opponent out with Cruel Celebrant but adding it as a four-of seems kinda odd in a aggro deck to me. In this slot I personally would prefere the good ol' Adanto Vanguard . Yeah, I'm aware of the hate she is facing, but still. In a aggro build absolutely mandatory. ;)
Second thing I noticed is that I might play a mix of Icon of Ancestry and Radiant Destiny . Because former seems more like a lategame card and you surely don't want to end up there with an aggro build. HEHE. Maybe I'm just wrong here but maybe even Unbreakable Formation would be an option for this spot. (Or even Pride of Conquerors ?)
Besides that I might cut one plains for an additional Isolated Chapel .
I hope this was of some help to you. I'm seriously considering to go back to full scale vamps for this season. If only the playset of the new Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord wasn't like at least 50 bucks.
Have a good one.

I see the ramp now. The cluestones and outpost don't fit well in my opinion I'd replace them with something like
or remove them completely. I understand
I'd consider adding Path to Exile , something like Soul Snare (idk the good cards), Oblivion Ring , Darkness or Deafening Clarion instead of Rakdos Cluestone , Veinfire Borderpost , Gatekeeper of Malakir (hard to cast with 3 black) or Syphon Mind .
Good ones to add from your maybeboard could be Blood Artist , Adanto Vanguard instead of e.g. Falkenrath Marauders , Gatekeeper of Malakir .
I'd also replace the ETB tapped lands Urborg Volcano , etc. with basic lands, the tapped lands are slow.

Falkenrath Noble is actually worse because it hits only one player per trigger and relies too much on your opponents to play many creatures. Stat-wise it might be better because of added evasion in form of flying but I'd actually stick to the ground with Vindictive Vampire dealing 3-4 damage and healing me for 1.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good but not here - it's place is in some more midrange decks rather than full on aggro. On the other hand Vampire Nocturnus has POTENTIAL to be amazing but... in 3-color deck it has too much % chance to whiff. I've actually counted and there are 41 black cards and it might not be enough to make it worth inclusion.
If I'd make it more similar to my Aggro/Aristocrats deck I'd swap:
- Sorin, Solemn Visitor --> Vindictive Vampire - I see planeswalkers as sorcery spells because there's a very high chance that they'll be killed during the whole turn cycle. So this Sorin is for +1/+0 and lifelink OR 2/2 token... Is it worth 4 CMC? Unfortunately, I don't think so.
- Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet --> Quag Vampires - low CMC aggro vampire that has potential to be unblockable with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and come with a few +1/+1 counters later in the game.
- Adanto Vanguard --> Bloodthrone Vampire - white vampire for black one and I personally don't see this Vanguard as powerful, while with all those ping abilites on board we can easily machine gun opponents to death (or close enough to be taken down by buffed up vampire lady).
Other than that I'm recently questioning the value of Stromkirk Noble since it's not card... What do you think about it?

I like the deck. I remember starting a brew on naya tokens a while ago, and I'm happy to see a list on it!
Just a quick Note. You might want a few Adanto Vanguard just as mini beaters or blockers before the tokens get made.
