Anowon, the Ruin Sage Discussion

I think you could add the following: Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Necropolis Regent, Rakish Heir and Stensia Masquerade? There are other options that require a bit more budget like Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Captivating Vampire and Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet.

I see. I only ask as I actually have the opposite issue in my Ravos, Soultender vampire sac deck. I found that if I ever managed to play Anowon, the Ruin Sage My commander would die instantly, not being a vampire and all. So I had to add a load of protection for him in the form of shroud effects as hexproof wasn't sufficient.

Anowon, the Ruin Sage is an obvious vampire tribal card.

Vampiric Link has tribal flavor and has three cool features :
1) you can cast it on a opponents creature and you get the life from it

2) it works on any damage not just combat damage

3) it stacks with lifelink on your creatures.

The Whispersilk Cloak stops things from Targeting, not from Triggering. Unless a card literally has the word "target" the cloak has no effect. You could not use Drana's ability to target something wearing the cloak, but it would not stop her from equipping the cloak and targeting something else.

I am definitely a fan of Anowon, the Ruin Sage! Nothing says vampires like sucking the lifeforce out of other creature-based decks while still getting full value from cards like Vampire Nocturnus.

Sample decklist.

Olivia Voldaren is the vampire's red/black commander. gives you access to more vampires, and things like Mob Rule and Insurrection.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - can be good, and hoses recursion decks.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan - is also a fun vampire to take the mono black helm.

I have not seen him used for a while, but Anowon, the Ruin Sage also works as a good mono black choice.

Nice deck. I play something similar. Have you considered adding Pulse Tracker , Kalastria Highborn , Anowon, the Ruin Sage,Nirkana Revenant and Malakir Bloodwitch to the list? And if you add Whip of Erebos , Bloodchief Ascension as well as Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond you get multiple mid- to late game finisher as well as a possible infinity-combo
