Blood Baron of Vizkopa Discussion

If you face a lot of black and/or white decks heavy on removal, Blood Baron of Vizkopa can also be a great card.

CasualCucumber, thanks for your suggestions!
I didn't buy Gifted Aetherborn yet just because it was sold out in the nearest shop here, but definitely gonna order it online.
I have a Blood Baron of Vizkopa but it's difficult to achieve both conditions to buff him when playing against nearby players (>=30 life for you and <=10 life for opponent) and Bloodbond Vampire has been responding better, so this is why I took it out of my deck.
Felidar Sovereign would not fit in the theme =/ In addition, it is difficult to achieve >=40 against the opponents I played, but for multiplayer it could work!
About the removal, do you think I should take out some creatures to add them? or take out the Elixirs?

Gifted Aetherborn would definetly fit right in as you suggested.
Blood Baron of Vizkopa maybe a win more card, haven't played it myself.
Felidar Sovereign is a alternative win card but it is not fitting your vampire theme.
You're welcome to dismiss any of my suggestions :)

Too many dead cards in the current list. Pick a strategy and go all-in on it. You don't win matches by being sorta good at two things sometimes.
You can cut lightning greaves , summoning and soldier, run Indulgent Aristocrat, Blade of the Bloodchief and Vampire Cutthroat for an aggro/lifegain strategy that lets you focus on getting black mana turns 1-2-3 then white can be tapllands without losing too much.
Alternatively, build around Heartless Summoning, with more cards in the 3/4 slot (Aven Riftwatcher, Bygone Bishop Eidolon of Rhetoric and Eldrazi Displacer coming down turn three in multiples is devastating), and acceleration like Pentad Prism to ensure you can get them onto the field. You can also put resto back in, run lots of etbs.

One more lingering souls. Rest looks fairly soli- I prefer stuff like Blood Baron of Vizkopa for the high end, as even indestructable isn't too reliable and there are plenty of options with protection.

The simple rules of simple deckbuilding that i just came up with simply on the spot:
1/ Identify how you want to win.
2/ Play 4 copies of the 9 cards that best support that.
3/ Add 24 lands.
In all seriousness, this is good way to start out in deckbuilding without too much hassle. From what you have currently, lifegaining and extorting are your key players and the deck has a low curve and is aggressive. lets focus on that. Fair warning, I am introducing some new cards! Lets see:
4 Tithe Drinker - extort
4 Kingpin's Pet - extort
4 Nightsky Mimic - key player!
4 Edge of Divinity - key player!
1 Blood Baron of Vizkopa - you have it already, but 5 mana is a lot, so 1 copy is plenty.
3 Gift of Orzhova - makes racing so much easier.
4 Unmake - key removal!
3 Orzhov Charm - small dudes removal.
1 Anguished Unmaking - pricy, but quite good!
4 Tidehollow Sculler - gets their hand and is another BW creature.
6 cards of your choice between Sin Collector, Pillory of the Sleepless and Drana's Emissary, Undying Evil, Ulcerate, Castigate, Sign in Blood, Ajani's Pridemate or mix betweeen them.
What is deck doing and why am I not following my own advices? The 4x9 non-lands + 24 lands is a good thing starting out. As you continue building more decks, you realize it is good, but limiting. In a deck full of 2 and 3 drops, you have no need for 4 Blood Baron of Vizkopa, for example. Same with lands - if you have only 1 card that costs 5 to cast, 24 lands is a bit too much.
TLDR: 9X4 + 24 is good basis, just make some tweaks from there.

This looks pretty good! I would like to suggest the following vampires for you. Some of my suggestions are a bit more expensive (and I know you want to keep this deck as budget as possible). The only reason I am suggesting them is that they are great value in your deck and can truly be game-changers for you (imho):
- Falkenrath Exterminator; very nice zap ability that does not require tapping; especially when you start to gain those useful +1/+1 counters.
- Malakir Cullblade; can get strong pretty quickly, especially when playing against multiple opponents.
- Kalastria Highborn; a bit expensive, but makes you less of an interesting target for spot removal or board wipes.
- Drana, Liberator of Malakir; very powerful vampire and not too expensive for what she can do.
- Bloodline Keeper Flip; you want tokens? You'll get them.
- Sangromancer; in case life-gain is an intricate part of your strategy for this deck.
- Necropolis Regent; counters for everyone! Well, for you anyway.
- Olivia Voldaren; if you can't beat it, persuade it to join.
- Blood Baron of Vizkopa; pretty strong without the buff; insanely powerful with it.
Hope this helps any. And should you have the time and inclination, I would appreciate any suggestions you might have for one of my EDH decks (just pick one (or more)). Happy brewing and playing!
