Asylum Visitor Discussion

Feast of Blood needs 2 vamps in play to kill 1 card. Even if you have 2 low costed vamps, that's turn 3 earliest if they both survive. With Bolt, Path and Push being so omnipresent in Modern, Feast is seriously unreliable, especially since it's a sorcery and not an instant.
Sorin really isn't played at all in this format, unlike EDH where he was almost banned at one point. He was really good in original Zendikar standard, and was a one-of in the deck that won 1st place world that year (UB control, though vamps made top 8). In Modern he's too much mana to cast in midrange, he's the wrong color for ramp aggro which is usually GR, he doesn't fit into Tron unlike Karn or Ugin and control runs 3-4 Bob (Dark Confidant). If you want an amazing planeswalker, though she's expensive and more midrange-y anyway, one of the best cards in the format is Liliana of the Veil or not far behind, Liliana, the Last Hope. If You wanted a budget alternative that's still admittedly a little slow, there's Ob Nixilis Reignited, but 5 mana in vamps is really pushing it unless the card is seriously gamebreaking like Voldaren Pariah or back in the day Malakir Bloodwitch.
By the way I just realized the new set coming out has Vicious Conquistador who is literally a better Pulse Tracker.
My recommendations for an aggressive monoblack list in terms of creatures is something like: 4 Vampire Lacerator, 4 Vicious Conquistador, 2 Viscera Seer, 4 Bloodghast, 4 Gifted Aetherborn who I've dubbed Vampire Nightpenguin, 4 Gatekeeper of Malakir, 2 Captivating Vampire, 4 Vampire Nocturnus, 1 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, 1 Sanctum Seeker, 1 Asylum Visitor. If space is too tight cut the captivatings and visitor and lower Aetherborn to 3. This is similar to my first build, and has a pretty low curve lending way to speed and damage. Seers are here to ensure consistency for Nocturnus and get you the topdeck you need in an emergency as they can sac as they block.
Fetch lands do a lot actually. A land you pull from your deck is a land you're not topdecking at a critical moment when you really don't want one. They also let you double dip on Bloodghast and provide incentive not to chump block him. They also let you shuffle your deck for Nocturnus if you topdeck a land, which are cololess due to no mana cost.

Devotion can be a more controlling deck with a ton of discard and permanents like Phyrexian Arena to fuel a Gray Merchant for the win-con. Or it can be a more agro list that curves into Gray Merchant. Bob effects like Asylum Visitor and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyxare worth a look in the deck.

You want 4 gatekeepers if you don't have Liliana. The duals aren't needed in monocolor. I say try and find focus with the better vamps, as in more 4 ofs once you sort out what works. Alms and Call the bloodline are terrible btw. Yahenni is really mediocre. I would say for your non-creature spells try 4 Fatal Push, 4 Go for the Throat or Urge to Feed, 2 Phyrexian Arena, and consider more one-drops in terms of creature. 4 Vampire Lacerator 4 Pulse Tracker 2 Viscera Seer is one idea. 4 Nocturnus 1 Kalitas 2 Captivating 1 Pariah is just fine as-is. Cutthroat is awful. As amazing as Falkenrath Heir and Condemned are, they need both Bloodghast and Asylum Visitor to not slow you down and get any real mileage out of. I say pick one: madness engine or weenie rush with lords and that one Pariah as your wincons.
Some food for thought.

Last_Laugh: Vampiric Rites may be up your alley if you want more card draw. Would also suggest Painful Truths and Night's Whisper if you want one-shot effects, or Asylum Visitor if you find yourself hellbent more often than not.
May also want to consider Mynea Frian, Dark Apostle from Ixalan when she drops. She's overperformed in testing.

Thank you willspower3! I usually like playing blue so when I brewed this deck it felt really weird to not have card draw. And I'm already loving the synergy of Collective Brutality with Bloodghast and Asylum Visitor. These were excellent suggestions!

I'm not sure what direction you are trying to take the deck in, but some cards seem a little weaker than all the others.
Queen Marchesa is awesome, but doesn't have any vampire synergies.
Bloodghast isn't as impactful in Commander and doesn't let you play him to trigger Edgar's Eminence ability.
Asylum Visitor is best when you have a lot of forcing discards, but you only seem to have a few. Otherwise it's only relevant if you have played your entire hand.
Urge to Feed While thematic, I don't think its the best removal and tapping all your vampires with only a small gain could be a bad idea.
Falkenrath Aristocrat doesn't seem like it will have the most impact since you can't really sac humans to it and it will take a long time for Edgar to pump it to a dangerous level. It is really good if you give it first strike though.
I also think you could cut down on a couple lands or so i you wanted.
Hope this helps!
