Blood Baron of Vizkopa Discussion

Stuff I'd cut:
Duskborne Skymarcher - not enough impact
Erdwal Ripper - bad
Falkenrath Exterminator bad
Furyblade Vampire good for madness but not for this deck
Havengul Vampire not good enough
Kheru Bloodsucker bad
Licia, Sanguine Tribune only good as commander in a deck built around him. Here it's just bad for 8 mana
Nirkana Revenant not bad but not really that useful either since only about a thrid of your lands are swamps anyways
Voracious Vampire bad
Stuff I'd definitely add:
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodline Keeper Flip
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle
Butcher of Malakir
Shadow Alley Denizen
Stuff I'd consider adding:
Bishop of Binding
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Legion's Landing Flip
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Patron of the Vein
Urge to Feed
Blood Baron of Vizkopa
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Voldaren Pariah Flip
Details as for why I'd add certain cards and cut others I'll give you the next time we get to talk :)

Here are my recommendations: Cut: Defiant Bloodlord (7 mana for a lackluster body, decent effect, and no protection = meh), Manabarbs (Most people, if not all at the table will target you when you play this), Blood Baron of Vizkopa (Very specific second half of this ability makes it a 5 mana 4/4 lifelinker 99% of the time), Iroas, God of Victory (Your deck does not have enough creatures to make use out of the ability; the boros god shines really well in decks that go wide), and Odric, Lunarch Marshal (You mostly have lifelink and flying on your creatures. His ability won't get you too much value most of the time)
Add: Tymna the Weaver (Lifelink, early draw, and low mana cost), Crackling Doom (Insane removal that mardu has access to), Rakdos's Return (Phenomenal in 1v1; good in multiplayer and it helps finish players off after you whittled them down), Twilight Prophet (Life drain and card advantage-low cmc), and Test of Endurance (might as well, since you are running Aetherflux Reservoir and Felidar Sovereign )

Hey welcome to T/O arcrayne!
So if your struggling with early game being way too slow than yes your curve is way too high already. Since Markov makes tokens for you real quick, you want to use cards that are low CMC as well as give you a bunch of effects to make it worth. Here are some example cards that you don't have that can be considered using.
- Vicious Conquistador - 1 CMC as well you will be swinging.
- Twilight Prophet - Card Advantage (CA) as well as a vampire, and ascend won't be a problem for you.
- Metallic Mimic - Not a vampire but he makes your army stronger and 2 cmc.
- Bloodcrazed Paladin - In case of boardwipe, you'll have a huge vampire.
- Champion of Dusk - CA as well as a good creature with evasion.
Those are some examples of well costed creatures that are low to drop but does things as well. Cards that aren't useful are like these one below.
- Blood Baron of Vizkopa - Very rarely you will trigger his ability, too high cost.
- Butcher of Malakir - Too high cost and a down grade from a Grave Pact or Dictate of Erebos .
- Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief - As much as I love her (I have her as a commander of my deck), she is too mana intensive to use in a aggro build.
- Patron of the Vein - Too high cost for a weak ability.
- Sangromancer - For 4 CMC, it's ability is meh and a waste of a card slot.
Hope that kind of explains why these cards are not too great in this build. Also some tech card is Faith's Reward , absolute life saver when it comes to saving your guys from a board wipe!
Hope that helps and feel free to ask for any advice!

BW control generally involves discard spells. You can get some good ones with Duress , Despise , and Castigate . If your friends play mostly creatures, then Harsh Scrutiny is good too. Hymn to Tourach is relatively cheap, but it's very very very very strong, play it at your own risk of creating an arms race between you and your playgroup.
Healer's Hawk is definitely more of an aggro card, if you want an effect like that, I would recommend Vampire Nighthawk . Obzedat, Ghost Council is incredibly strong, as is Blood Baron of Vizkopa . Vona, Butcher of Magan is incredible too.
I love merciless eviction, but you should really only run one, I would recommend you play some copies of Day of Judgment , Languish , Wrath of God , and Ritual of Soot to get those wraths earlier and keep the board clear.
I cannot recommend enough some Isolated Chapel s, Temple of Silence , Concealed Courtyard s, Shambling Vent s, and Caves of Koilos . Fetid Heath has recently plummeted in price as well, but I don't know your budget.
You'll definitely want some card draw to refill your hand too. In these colors it comes at the cost of life, for the most part. My personal favorites in casual decks are Twilight Prophet , but she is ridiculously expensive, and Kaya, Ghost Assassin . Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , Damnable Pact , Dark Bargain , Read the Bones , and Midnight Oil .
Hope this was at least a little helpful!

... you know you're running several pieces that fits in as combo's right? In a casual game oloro often has you sitting at 60 life before anyone's really attacking anyone. In short this is probably less casual and closer to optimized maybe around 65-80% on this site's competitive meter.
nearly forgot I could just copy the deck and turn the meter on, it is currently 64%, probably due to the average cmc being on the higher end, still the deck is no longer on the casual end, if your goal is to make it casual cutting the tutors for some other big lifegain cards like Rhox Faithmender, Blood Baron of Vizkopa or maybe some ramp like Burnished Hart.
