Demarge on Oloro-Till life do us part

... 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.

lagotripha: Thank you for the idea of using Blood Baron of Vizkopa. I kind of forgot about him because I couldn't target him with edge. I'm also trying to stay clear from tokens.

I'd look at playing it as more of a midrage list, making use of resilient threats like Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Stillmoon Cavalier and a lot of disruption- Tidehollow Sculler, Sin Collector, kill spells etc. Things like Conjurer's Ban will do a lot to help the game reach that later stage.

There are also some powerful sac effects in B/w, with Cartel Aristocrat, Hidden Stockpile, Teysa, Orzhov Scion and powerful token generation in both colours- a Promise of Bunrei list is very playable.

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.

Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Captivating Vampire and Drana, Liberator of Malakir are awesome cards, but kinda expensive. I will try cheaper cards first and then move to them if needed.

I see Defiant Bloodlord as an expensive version (regarding mana cost) of Cliffhaven Vampire, so this is why I opted for the latter.

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.

You could add Bloodline Keeper  Flip maybe its out of budget.

Some other cards to think about adding: Drana, Liberator of Malakir. Defiant Bloodlord a high cost so maybe not good for 1v1. Captivating Vampire another lord to consider.

Blood Baron of Vizkopa maybe a win more card, haven't played it myself.

I am thinking your deck maybe needs some more removal, maybe Murder andGrasp of Darkness or something like it.

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.

This can also help a vampire tribal plan built around stuff like Forerunner of the Legion seasrching for Blood Baron of Vizkopa and Bishop of Rebirth.

If you want archangel of thune's effect, but are running less Kitchen Finks effects, then Drana, Liberator of Malakir.

There are also demon tribal options if you want to go an angels/demons route, with Blood Speaker posessing immense Heartless Summoning synergy.

Auramancer, Heliod's Pilgrim and Ironclad Slayer all point towards an aura strategy, but it is far too easily disrupted to generate the card advantage it needs.
