Looking forward to seeing this completed. Here's some cards to consider;Ghoulcaller's Chant, Zombie Infestation; beneficial sac outlets like Vampiric Rites, Malakir Cullblade, Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, Sadistic Glee; things that benefit zombies like Gravespawn Sovereign and Graveborn Muse; and to make sure Endless Ranks of the Dead is an insane card you could consider Conspiracy to make sure every creature is a zombie.

Coco works decently however it does sometimes fall flat but that is the risk we run, as for Torpor Orb I will not be running it ever in the deck as it shuts down the core purpose of this deck. Finally for Golgari Charm I know that it can kill my low cost creatures but I like this aspect of the card as I sometimes use it to trigger Blood Artist for a cheeky cluth victory.

hubatish thanks for the feedback! I see what you're saying about how Blood Artist and Falkenrath Aristocrat need more synergy together. I would like to leave both of those cards in the deck however, as Blood Artist is a great 2 drop and Falkenrath Aristocrat can really do some damage in the air. Are there any cards you think I should specifically take out, and if so, any that I should put in?

I don't think you really have enough cards rewarding you for playing vampires. Basically 4xStromkirk Captain and 1x Feast of Blood are your only "vampires matter" cards? Put another way - many of your cards are individuall powerful, but they don't have much synergy.

I guess, this is especially obvious to me with the 4xBlood Artist and the 2xFalkenrath Aristocrat. The Aristocrat goes ahead & spells what it wants to be played with - some token makers, ideally human ones, and I think that's really the kind of list both of those cards want to be played in - something with lots of 1/1 tokens, not necessarily with lots of other vampires. Without building around it, Blood Artist is comparable to a mere Child of Night, who can maybe get in for 2-point life swings before trading with something. Except Child of Night would actually love to be a 3/2 first striker courtesy of Stromkirk Captain

Right on. I didn't know if you had tried it and it has good synergy with Blood Artist and Festering Goblin so I figured I'd throw it out there. Doesn't look like you have a sideboard yet, but Tragic Slip is the absolute best removal spell you can find for this style of deck. It kills almost anything that doesn't have protection from black or hexproof for . I would definitely run them in the sideboard if you don't think they warrant inclusion in the main.

Oh, wow. Just realized that the ability from Blood Artist would more than mitigate its possible cost from Dark Confidant... Even better suggestion than I thought!

I thought about Blood Artist as a replacement for Mortician Beetle actually, but my only gripe is the 2 CMC cost :P It just feels like a slippery slope to include more 2 CMC cards than I already have because Dark Confidant is fickle. Honestly, I might test to see how it goes though. It would certainly burn more quickly than waiting for Mortician Beetle to get fat, and it would have good synergy with Skred. Good suggestion!

Maybe I can be of assistance as I play 60 and 100 card formats. My advice on making this a 60 card deck is to pick between 9 and 16 of the spells that you think work best (including Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim) and adding multiples. For example if you really like how Athreos, God of Passage plays with Blood Artist and Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim then start with 2-3 Athreos, 2-3 Ayli and 4 blood artists. Then pick more cards from the list that you want to keep and continue from there! I hope this helped!
