I like the idea of a vampire subtheme, it unintentionally works very well with what I feel like you're trying to do, and there's a ton of great support and synergy from the precon and ixalan stuff.

Thanks for the suggestions Braingamer! I think you're definitely right that Gideon's Resolve isn't worth keeping in. Sanctum Seeker has been basically gold, especially for getting the turn 4 or 5 win, so I will probably keep those in. I might be taking out Bishop of the Bloodstained and Call to the Feast to lower the general CMC of the deck, and will consider adding Gifted Aetherborn and Cartouche of Solidarity!

Nice deck! Bishop of the Bloodstained works great at draining the life f your opponent and can win the turn it is dropped, especially curving out by playing Sanctum Seeker into Bishop. Why is Aether Hub in the mana base? Just curious. Shefet Dunes work well in this deck. Maybe taking out a few copies of Concealed Courtyard?

You should consider adding Bishop of the Bloodstained. With all of those tokens and the relatively low cost of each vampire I feel this is a fun and economical deck. My wife runs a Standard Vamp deck and she really likes kicking my butt with it.

Hi! Here are some inexpensive cards to improve the pre-con!
For the mana base, check out this website. That'll give you all the options in your colors. It'll also tell you the artifact and ramp options! Remember, 37 lands, 10 ramp, 47 mana sources total.
Buffing Our Army: Indulgent Aristocrat(small cost for effect), Drana, Liberator of Malakir(+1/+1 counter theme, Vampire Nocturnus(only if you find yourself heavy in black), Guul Draz Overseer(again, heavy in black. run Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth), Necropolis Regent(+1/+1 theme), Urge to Feed(removal, +1/+1, Eldrazi Monument(VERY important), Vanquisher's Banner(card draw!), Stensia Masquerade(+1/+1 counters), Cathars' Crusade(Important, +1/+1 counters), In the Web of War, True Conviction, Ogre Battledriver, the outlast lords Abzan Falconer / Mer-Ek Nightblade / Abzan Battle Priest, which synergize with the +1/+1 counter theme again, Elenda, the Dusk Rose(+1/+1 counter theme)

I'm sorry, but after last update, how about some draw a card, except Syphon Mind? It's so necessary in multiplayer games. Maybe Bishop of the Bloodstained (replace by) -> Champion of Dusk, at least? :)

cut the 5 mana stuff and play some kaladesh vampires like Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Gifted Aetherborn. also, if you can afford it, the removal could see some uprgrades. Fatal Push, more copies of Vraska's Contempt, and even Thopter Arrest and Ixalan's Binding. the only five drop i could see you keeping is Bishop of the Bloodstained and just a 2 of if any. you could play some of the monuments to increase your clock and cut Demystify for Fragmentize. fragmentize is only a sorcery, but it hits all of the important enchantments and hits artifacts as a bonus.for additions to the manabase, the only good duel in your colors is concealed courtyard and that's about $5-7 each. for the sideboard, i would play Crested Sunmare for the temur energy matchup, Gideon's Intervention against approach, Sentinel Totem against anything playing the scarab god, and Kambal, Consul of Allocation against every control deck. angel of invention might get in against things like u/b as an anthem effect, but the five mana might make it unplayable as you would hopefully be tapping out for it on turn 5. one final thing for the maindeck if you are going to play monuments is Legion Conquistador. this card has been severely underestimated in the few months it has been out.
