Hey I give you respect for using only cards on hand I do the same thing. A few ideas I would offer are Intangible Virtue, Always Watching and Mycosynth Lattice. Also the Felidar Guardian combo.

Unlife, thanks for the comments!

Mox amber is, weirdly enough, not something the deck wants - it only does something once after you cast and retain your first legendary. I really want to fix ramp prior to casting legendaries. The legendary land would definately be here, if I had it. Day of Destiny is cool, but I feel like the keyword vigilance from Always Watching . Heroes' Podium is something mandatory for this deck that I have not seen until now and plan to get soon now that I have seen it. And it is 30 cents, a steal for this deck!

So first of all I'm going leave a link to mine on your userpage wall I turned it into a bit of a primer so hopefully you can get some ideas off of that.

I found this Commander to be extremely fun and a joy to just play. Good enough to have a Fighting Chance with anything thrown at it but at the same time not such a glaring threat that everybody and their mother saves counterspells for you. And I think you have the bones of something really good here.

Couple things.

takeout Rolling Stones you don't need it if you're commanders on the field and if your commander isn't on the field it's not helping you. It will let your walls attack but not with their toughness so you're going to be swinging in with powers of zeros and ones and twos.

your opponent's going to take that and then swing into an empty board State the next turn.

With the upside of playing low-power creatures you could probably swap out that wrath of God for something like Dusk or Meekstone with no real downside to you.

I switch out that howling mine for Brago, King Eternal.

the howling mind would help everyone where swinging in with brago to flicker all your walls will allow just you to draw extra cards equal to the amount of walls flickered.

seeing how this is a deck that definitely cares doing damage getting in your attached are key. I suggest looking for more walls with flying allowing your attack phase to have more Target without the worry of being blocked.

Last thing, maybe look into some enchantments that will give your creatures vigilance so you can attack and still block with your walls cards likeAlways Watching and Brave the Sands hell, maybe even Masako the Humorless.

Giving Vampires Bigger Muscles

Urge to Feed Use at end of turn to remove target opponent's creature and beef your army.

Shared Animosity so your 1/1 tokens become a force to reckon with.

Always Watching or Intangible Virtue depending on your strategy. If you plan to go the token strategy, then the latter is better.

Spear of Heliod Anthem and removal 2 in 1.

There're other creature anthems but I think these should suffice as you're already running a few vampire lords.

I'd consider Evolving Wilds/Terramorphic Expanse over Blossoming Sands, as it fixes all colours and dodges Blood Moon if you crack them before turn 3. Naya Panorama is also interesting, but less amazing in such a colour-intensive deck. Brushland, Karplusan Forest, Battlefield Forge exist, but only one has been printed recently enough to smoothly slot into budget lists.

Radiant Destiny- compared to Always Watching its more expensive beacause its in standard, while more difficult to turn on, so I'd consider a switch. Beastmaster Ascension is on-theme and slightly cheaper, and my personal preference. Mayael's Aria can also be fun.

Beast Within is on-theme premium removal.

Garruk Wildspeaker's various incarnations all make beast tokens, which can work well.

Pulse of the Tangle is a good card advantage tool in more midrange lists featuring Thragtusk and Obstinate Baloth maindeck.

Good luck, and I hope that you get that streamlined deck of your dreams. Its always good to see more weird tribal lists around.
