Maybe a Blood Baron of Vizkopa for value, a Greed for card draw, and some tutors for your combo enchantments?

Happy playing!

Blood Baron of Vizkopa seems like it could be upgraded

Sanguine Bond wants Exquisite Blood i think

maybe cut the Defiant Bloodlord the the exquisate blood

I think authority of the consuls will be a good addition once you get it

As far as synergy goes, first establish what the main game plan is.

So let's decide for example that the main game plan is to use the synergy of the vampire tribe with gaining and draining life.

Now what is the main point of gaining all that life? life gain doesn't win games on it's own but it does allow us to attack very freely and simply take the damage from incoming attacks in most cases, so it's a strategy for winning the damage race.

So the main focus apart from the life gain should be to build a fast wide board that can capitalize quickly on the life gain.

One of the best vampires in modern happens to be a very aggressive recursive 2-drop, namely Bloodghast. That card seems to fit the deck a lot better than defensive creatures like the gearhulk.

Path of Bravery that you thought about combos very well with Sanguine Bond and with a wide board state. Both of these cards are stackable with themselves, which means that they only get better if there are multiple copies in play. Therefore I suggest either run a full playset of Path of Bravery and 2 Sanguine Bond rather than using enchantment tutors which IMO are too slow for this style of aggressive deck. This is true of most anthem effects (cards that buff all your creatures) and they should normally either be run as full playsets or not at all.

Asylum Visitor is another good vampire that offers late game card advantage.

Blood Baron of Vizkopa is a powerhouse as well.

Bloodcrazed Paladin is an interesting sideboard card against control decks, they cast a boardwipe spell like Supreme Verdict and you flash it in afterwards with lot's of counters.

If you add Bloodghast and Asylum Visitor then Collective Brutality is a very good synergistic card to go in the removal slot.

As for other removal spells I would simply remove them all and put 2 Fatal Push and 2 Path to Exile in. You can sideboard more specific answers.

I personally don't think Pawn of Ulamog deserves a spot in the deck, but that's because I'm playing a full out aggressive deck. I don't really like the life-gain aspect of vampires if it's front and center, so Licia, Sanguine Tribune, Tithe Drinker, Falkenrath Noble, and Vampire Nighthawk came out as well. I also cut Vein Drinker, Skeletal Vampire, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Kheru Mind-Eater, Bloodhusk Ritualist, Crimson Honor Guard and Sangromancer.

All of this is what I cut from my deck, because its a beatdown/swarm deck. Things that take away from that don't deserve a spot. Butcher of Malakir is still in because I can kill my things to make them lose things, so I can punch them.

All and all, I think that you definitely should play some games with the precon, and see what does and doesn't work for you. I have a friend who plays Licia, Sanguine Tribune and goes for more of a pillowfort/lifegain deck. It's really up to you. Hope this helped.

-Birds of Paradise is legal in the Brew-Off. It's the best mana dork, no contest. I don't like Arbor Elf that much, as he's not always active. Given your wealth of mana dorks, Gavony Township might give you extra late game.

-Lingering Souls with your self mill is great. It stalls aggresssive decks and gives midrange decks fits. Control can deal with it a bit easier, but it's still card advantage. Did I mention those Gavony Townships?

-Sever the Bloodline is okay, but I'm not sure you want to be wasting a removal slot for it. That's just something that will be borne out in testing, and it's great at answering a lot of popular threats. Abrupt Decay, Putrefy, Hero's Downfall, Devour Flesh... so many options.

-If you need a discard outlet, instead of going for the rickety 4C plan, you could play Liliana of the Veil. She lets you bin cards, gains card advantage with the help of flashback spells, and stops Geist of Saint Traft/Thrun, the Last Troll.

-Fiend Hunter is similarly not exciting to me. This format has a lot of efficient removal, so all he does in a lot of games is give your opponent an extra ETB trigger and some tempo.

-Blood Baron of Vizkopa is amazing. Lifelink helps you stabilize against aggro, and it has protection from so many of the format's best spells. I remember your reaction to Stormbreath Dragon (and my reactions to losing to it a lot), and Blood Baron is the WB equivalent.

I like the list man, but I can totally see some sweet upgrades for you (EVEN BUDGET ONES!)

  1. Executioner's Swing should really be Swords to Plowshares, since you really want cheap removal, the lifegain won't really matter in the long run.

  2. I really like the Extort theme here, but since most extort creatures won't protect you from big scary opponents, I'd recommend playing Crawlspace over Marchesa's Decree since it really stops opponents from getting in hits on you.

  3. While I get that with all the tokens, Altar's Reap is like a Divination, I'd really want to see Well of Lost Dreams in here with all this lifegain you have, as it could make this deck seriously powerful. (If you do play the Well of lost dreams, I sense a Reliquary Tower in your future.

  4. To me, Blood-Cursed Knight is pretty much draft-fodder, becuase as 3 cmc you could be playing Loxodon Warhammer and just have a way to give Karlov and any other heavy hitters trample and lifegain.

  5. While yes, you can pitch your lands to make a 1/1 every turn, you could just play, I'd say this card should be swapped out for something like Aetherflux Reservoir, which can win you games. (While you are token heavy, Whip of Erebos could also be strong.

  6. I suppose that with enough tokens, Zealous Persecution would be decent, but if you were to play Authority of the Consuls or Blood Artist I think you'd have more success in the life you need to trigger other cards (I could also see Whitesun's Passage getting swapped for another card, but direct lifegain might be goof enough that it works.

  7. Throne of the High City could be fun if you want to continue keeping monarch as a fun theme to have.

  8. Some other cards for your consideration are Sun Titan, Banishing Light, Vindicate, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Divinity of PrideDictate of Erebos, and Rhox Faithmender

  9. If you'd like more suggestions, just let me know buddy ;)
