Bababad What do you think might want to come out of the deck to make room for the new things? And Is it worth running any life-halving things like Blood Tribute or Revival / Revenge as a 2-card combo with Vito?

SynergyBuild, at first I just read the title and replied.

I just read the rest of it and I do have a different card. My card is Vampire Nighthawk.

That card amazed me. I knew very lil about magic at this time. Lifelink and deathtouch were awesome to me and spawned a frenzy in me. Wanting to know all the best creatures with deathtouch and lifelink. This was before I started playing edh. The first edh deck I built was Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet. I had built it with vampire tribal in mind (inspired by the vampire nighthawk), it was so much fun. My first combo was Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, and everyone hated it so much. At this time infinite combos in my group were frowned upon very much so. Another cool card I really liked in that deck was Painful Quandary they also really hated this card alot lol. At this time my group was new to cmdr and didn't understand the importance of card draw and removal, including myself. The next combos I assembled in this deck before I took it apart was Bloodchief Ascension and Mindcrank, then Sanguine Bond and Blood Tribute. The deck also contained Rise of the Dark Realms and Army of The Dammed . Again at the time was very reliable win condition cards.

I really dig the Changeling Dragon theme. I've seen this deck, it was fun to watch, and it's neat to see the insides. Do your 1 and 2-drop changelings make a difference? How well have the planeswalkers worked out?

Cards to consider removing (5): Champion of Dusk, Cloudshredder Sliver, Lovisa Coldeyes, Thundercloud Shaman, Merrow Commerce,

Cards to consider (14): Kindred Dominance, Heirloom Blade, Omnath, Locus of Rage, Blood Tribute, Forerunner of the Legion, Metallic Mimic, Dregscape Sliver, Harmonic Sliver, Necrotic Sliver, and Kindred Discovery. Also with over 40 creatures having more effects that trigger with creatures entering the battle field seem useful: Aura Shards, Cathars' Crusade, Guardian Project, Soul of the Harvest, and Chulane, Teller of Tales.

I don't personally like creatures that reduce costs. I'd rather play a mana dork, or rock. How often do you empty your hand? Would wheel spells be useful? I personally like Lifecrafter's Bestiary. You currently have 16 shapeshifters (w/o Crib Swap, Shields of Velis Vel). I don't know how much you want to play with that number, but I wonder how good some of the cards are (Changeling Outcast, Fire-Belly Changeling, Impostor of the Sixth Pride, Mothdust Changeling, Woodland Changeling).

Blood Tribute, Clout of the Dominus, Blatant Thievery

When I was playing Vs my buddies Jelava deck we kept killing her before she could attack so more haste/shroud stuff was in order. My personal favorite tactic, however, is stealing. Not only would you be removing your opponents options you would be taking what they already have. If used during an attack trigger you would be removing a blocker as well.

Blood Baron of Vizkopa would be very difficult to run, considering its abilities, but it's still useful as a 4/4. Captivating Vampire would be very useful if you want more +P/+T. Here's another good +P/+T card, Legion Lieutenant. Gatekeeper of Malakiris very useful if you pay the kicker! Bloodline Keeper  Flip would be just as good as your 3/3's, and it's flying which is very useful, and when you tap it you can make a 2/2 black vampire creature with flying, and it also has the extra ability of transform, and when it transforms it adds even more P/T to your vampires, but i don't know if you'll be running 5 or more vampires on the field. I recommend Blood Tribute if you want a high mana cost card that is very useful. Also, if you plan on running vampire creature cards with a lot of or more, then I would recommend Bontu's Monument, but it appears that most of your vampires don't have a lot of generic mana cost.

just for info, Blood Tribute doesn't double with gisela as it does not cause damage but loss of life.

you have to pick a theme to your deck, before we can help you. are you going for milling? control? discard? deathtouch? and more. it looks like you got a bunch of commons and a few uncommons but thats about it right now. i would suggest you look up some decks in your color in the pauper format, which would be near perfect for the type of cards you have. pauper format only uses the common cards. your Vampire Envoy would combo well with Zulaport Chainmage and would fit in the pauper format. Blood Tribute also works with that card for the kicker cost. to get you started

The only card I haven't seen above is Blood Tribute but the Zendikar printing.

*Sorry, I don't know how to link the specific printing.
