ZendikariWol Blood Baron of Vizkopa has protection from black and white--no straightforward destroy or exile. It's not quite that easy anymore. A couple of burn spells should do it, though.

My first thought was turn 2 Ascendant Evincar .

In general, my feedback is that you have too many one-shot lifegain effects for small amounts (1-3 life). These don't do enough - you have to have multiple other cards on board before they really help you/hurt others.

Cards to cut:

- Angel of Mercy - Angel of the Dawn - Angel of the God-Pharaoh - Seraph of the Suns - Serra Angel - Urgoros, the Empty One - Vampire Sovereign - Dark Ritual - Healing Grace - Fountain of Renewal - Manalith - Prowler's Helm - Behind the Scenes - Ill-Gotten Inheritance - Trespasser's Curse - Dovin Baan

A few cards to think about adding:

- Herald of War - (one of) Aegis Angel / Deathless Angel / Angelic Arbiter - Blood Baron of Vizkopa - Greed - Commander's Sphere - Alhammarret's Archive - Comeuppance

Last, I'll just note that Oloro is already not a beloved commander, and you're playing a lot of counter magic. You might want to think about inserting some W/U pillowfort, cause everyone is going to be coming for you.

Thanks for the reply lagotripha! Care to explain why you think Intangible Virtue is a bad choice? It's the cornerstone of any tokens strategy, and having that alternative source of pressure to make your tokens more relevant seems pretty strong against decks that depend on long games.

Blood Baron of Vizkopa seems like it could be a strong SB card, good one! Also just a side note, he's still vulnerable to discard since text doesn't do anything until the card is in play.

I wouldn't feel comfortable running Intangible Virtue unless I was seeing a lot of Illness in the Ranks . Even then you could probably run Anguished Unmaking /o-ring in those slots with little fuss. I'd also give some thought to a 1-of Blood Baron of Vizkopa in the side. He's not as 'immune to everything' as hexproof often offers, but he dodges the vast majority of removal and hand disruption in the modern format, easily slipping into the old 'serra angel' control slot.

Your manabase looks fine.

I've played a bunch of vamp variants- the battle is that mardu vamps (which is basically all B/R vamps decks that aren't secretly just a Stromkirk Noble and burn list, because the white vamps are really, really good) has several different ways it can go.

You can build around Stromkirk Captain in a go-wide strategy in which case maindeck Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and Legion Lieutenant , or around Blood Artist , Cartel Aristocrat and Falkenrath Aristocrat in a sacrifice strategy, or around discard outlets with Stromkirk Condemned , Falkenrath Gorger , Olivia, Mobilized for War , or around trading efficiently with Gifted Aetherborn , Stromkirk Captain and Vampire Nighthawk , or dip more heavily into spells, or lifelinker spam to land Blood Baron of Vizkopa . You can also split the difference between any of these plans, because there are cards to bridge basically any strategies.

Vamps is incredibly versatile, with a big pool of synergies to draw from. You can stretch from lurn-like aggro all the way to blood-baron control. So play with the tools, target a section of the game you want to win in and build to that. And don't be scared to switch it up.

The reason to go to mardu is the options it gives you (and bloodghast triggers)- not just in the sideboard, but throughout the deckbuilding process. You can absolutely bring a different vamps deck each friday, and your opponents will misplay because they were expecting what you've done before. That is incredibly strong.
