Blood Tithe Discussion

With you're description I'm not sure you fully understand how Baron Von Count works. He doesn't care what their converted mana cost is. All he cares about are the numerals printed on the card. For example Nirkana Cutthroat has 1,2,3,4,5 printed somewhere on the card. So no matter where the counter is on the Baron it would go down one. Shriekmaw only has 1,2,3,4 printed on it. Also be careful as the Planeswalker starting count does NOT count as it is not within what Baron looks at. For example Sorin Markov only has 1,2,3 printed on it, and the 4 does not count (yes the numeral 1 counts from the printed "life total becomes 10").
You have a lot of Un-cards that don't really help Baron. If you're just looking to play the cards then they are fine to keep in. You also have a few ok cards in the deck that also only provide a few numbers for the Baron.
Not really useful Un-cards (only provide up to 2 numbers): Show

I've tried building my own deck Count from 5. I've also compiled a spreadsheet to help me add cards to my deck counting the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 on different cards: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1i77tFtrQXR7FkVuaYcrp-ICaJS_BUzCfbnI6TfwYXTo/edit?usp=sharing

TheWallinator74, the reason i've removed my Blood Tyrant from the box was exactly what you typed. He was growing too much on each game that i had him on the field and it started to get boring to my opponents. I'll take a look at Pulse Tracker and Infectious Horror.
I'll take a look on the "sweepers" as well but i'll replace Exsanguinate for Blood Tithe. I would love to put the God-Pharaoh in place of the Deciever but he's really expensive in my country at the moment so for now the Deciever shall be the walker card of this deck.
Lastly, this deck didn't have any mana problems in the matches i've played so i see no need to put other lands on it for now. Thanks a lot for the suggestions.

Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough
Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy
Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.
Contemplation, combo off!
Honor the Fallen - on theme graveyard hate that's also a combat trick
Mastery of the Unseen this needs a lot of mana to be great, but maybe you'll get some good use out of it. It's kinda iffy though
Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white
Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov
Exsanguinate is good
Use all the life you gain for benefits, like card draw! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections
or recursion Phyrexian Reclamation
Some possible cuts
Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander
Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?

Also, I feel like cards like Voracious Hatchling and Soulmender will disappoint you. I imagine them dying a lot without accomplishing much. Scholar of Athreos seems much better than the Soulmender, at least - late game you can drop it and use it in the same turn, or use it multiple times each turn.

Here are some upgrades that could be made,
Unbudgetizing the manabase, playing cards like Godless Shrine to help increase consistency in mana.
Serra Ascendant can easily find a place in this build.
Other options that I don't know what to replace with are Ravos, Soultender, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Noxious Gearhulk, Enlightened Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Debtors' Knell, Sorin Markov, and Liliana Vess.

Fatal Push is a very powerful removal spell, especially in Modern. I'd take out the Doom Blades and add at least 2 of those in, might even remove the Ultimate Prices as well. The other big issue I'm seeing is that your mana curve is very high. You're hardly ever going to run into a situation where you need to cast Blood Tithe, it barely does anything for you in a 1v1 scenario like a Modern tournament. I'd also remove Duress for Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek, which are all-around better cards. Perhaps adding in some lower-drop creatures like Bloodghast and taking out your nearly-uncastable 7-drop Defiant Bloodlords. Any vampire deck should also be running Vampire Nocturnus since he's a powerhouse and does a lot for you. Other cards to consider: Vampire Hexmage (remove all counters from Nahiri, the Harbinger or Ugin, the Spirit Dragon in the sideboard, Damnation, Captivating Vampire and Drana, Liberator of Malakir.

Wowzer it's changed a LOT -nevermind toilet paper, more universal solvent! Nice.My main concern, which I'm sure you've thought of, is that your mana base is HIGH. There's ramp, and there's draw that's for sure, but just keep that in mind. I don't personally like Dreamstone Hedron -what are the chances hes untapped so you can sac him for draw? And the cost...you've got plenty of expensive stuff in here, you have the wonga for a Mana Crypt? Failing that I'd go for Caged Sun, Land Tax, another signet -more mana fixing imo. I obvs like Weathered Wayfarer but too slow and killable imo, I'd go Oreskos Explorer, or even better Knight of the White Orchid -tempo over long term, I'm thinking. Expedition Map is another classic.The lands, I'd add a Terramorphic Expanse -if you don't want to chuck a temple away for it, it's miles better than Esper Panorama imo.I see your running hate puller Sen Triplets -you thought of Celestial Dawn? It's a funky mana fixer and allows sen to cast anything, so give it a thought. The only other comparable is Mycosynth Lattice. Paradox Haze also doubles upkeep effects, so sen...oloro, bloodgift...sheoldred...etc.Love that little combo with Hex Parasite/Vampire Hexmage+Celestial Convergence or Dark Depths! I don't get Divine Intervention at all. Why would you want to draw?? If you want an insta win, you already have Felidar Sovereign, why not add Test of Endurance instead?On that note, Aetherflux Reservoir works in a similar way.I have never liked Debt to the Deathless. I suspect that's just me tbh, but i find things like Blood Tithe and Exsanguinate work better as you need less mana and of different types to cast -although i personally prefer trickle effects, such as Blood Artist, those that at first are not targeted but over time have made a real impact. I appreciate end game debt is strong, but even with say 10mana spent you get out of it 12dmg each opponent -massive life gain, but I don't see em dying from it.I really do not like Brilliant Ultimatum. Too random, too expensive. Any other draw effect for me is better.Ditto with Silence the Believers -with say 7 mana youve exiled two creatures. Perhaps Curse of the Swine, Sever the Bloodline (great token killer), AEther Snap (works with your other counter removers and kills tokens/combos), Sudden Spoiling? The list is long methinks.You thought of Slaughter? A bit steep to cast esp the restricted color target, but neat to repeat. Snuff Out is also interesting -free kill, why not??Might also want to think of swapping one of the mass controls with Killing Wave (nearly as amazing as toxic deluge for this deck) and Deadly Tempest (esp since the life loss doesnt do much to you).Talking about boardwipes, there's not as much recursion as I'd like, especially since a lot of it is creature based, which risks being wiped -walkers are there yes, but as always expensive...I'd always run a Phyrexian Reclamation when i need some recursion. Oversold Cemetery is also very good. Fool's Demise is just nasty if a bit expensive (i like Obzedat's Aid but the cost, is it worth it?), or if you really wanna be expensive go Debtors' Knell. Can always go the more...mean route and add to your grave steal with Chainer, Dementia Master or the insane Geth, Lord of the Vault. Me I like the subtle, meh ill pay life effect of Athreos, God of Passage -although you need heavy recursion to make the most of him, still surprisingly effective.I'd remove Diabolic Revelation for a straight up cheaper tutor -the best ones if you have money to spend obvs. You may wanna check out Insidious Dreams -peculiar, but considering your strong card draw you could easily line up your winning game combo, draw it all and win next turn.And finally: Karlov of the Ghost Council and oloro are best friends! Forget his exiling power, is his insane tronness that imo shines through, can easily become another win condition.Blimey I got carried away! In the end thanks for some much needed oloro inspiration, and hope ive given you some food for thought!
