Blood Tribute Discussion

I have a few suggestions, sorry if it's long.
As far as combos go, Defiant Bloodlord is essentially a second Sanguine Bond, and Epicure of Blood can be almost a third. (Not nearly as effective in most scenarios, but still goes infinite with Exquisite Blood.)
One last note - You seem to have Diabolic Tutor in there twice. No biggie, it happens to me on this site too, haha.

Hey DRmagic2017, no matter how kindly Anowon, the Ruin Sage behaves, I don't see him in this deck. CMC is just too high for what he's got to offer since he's easy to remove and often doesn't survive till my next upkeep. I'm thinking about adding Sorin, Lord of Innistrad instead of Sorin, Solemn Visitor. I think I'd rather have a permanent boost for my creatures plus the token he provides don't need loyalty counters to happen. In my opinion Sorin Markov is superior in pretty much every way to Blood Tribute. For 6 CMC I would only consider cards that could possibly end the game and I just don't see Blood Tribute as such. I'm not sure about Blade of the Bloodchief because there is no instant effect but maybe I will add it to the deck. I see Coat of Arms as a finisher whereas Vanquisher's Banner just doesn't do the trick. The carddraw is too random and the boost is too low to make a huge impact most of the time. Sooner or later other Tutors will find their way into this deck but for now they're simply out of my budget. ;) Thanks a lot DRmagic2017 for your suggestions!

Anowon, the Ruin Sage is kindly asking to enter this deck. Sorin, Solemn Visitor also wants to reunite with his grandpa Edgar Markov. Blood Tribute is another Vampire themed card. I would also replace Coat of Arms with Vanquisher's Banner. And why didn't you add Blade of the Bloodchief? And tutors: for example Vampiric Tutor in a Vampiric deck - sounds great, eh?

Since the majority of cards in your deck are black, I suggest Vampire Nocturnus, while the buff is conditional it's very strong and fairly consistent, especially with any draw/scry effects.
Legion's Landing could be put in maybe in place of a plains or something, since it flips into a land so easily? Also Radiant Destiny is good, especially once you get the vigilance, which isn't hard to do with the tokens.
Really cool deck, check out mine! ==> Russian Vampire Mafia

Thanks for pointing that out. Was a typo :/ I was afraid that Legion's Landing Flip would be too slow but it's most certainly worth a try. I'm having issues cutting cards, not sure exactly what to cut. I'm thinking Blood Tribute, Butcher of Malakir,Black Market. Still need to cut another 10 at the very least.

You're off to a decent start, I'd say. Your curve looks good, though you're mana base is a bit weak at the moment (you should be running about 40 land for consistency). Some commentary as I took notes:
Heliod, God of the Sun doesn't seem to fit with the overall theme of the deck. You'd be better off with a card that will give you lifelink creatures or something, to help offset the life-loss from your various effects. Whip of Erebos would be my pick for this deck.
Blood Tribute is going to want more vampires, which are kind of slim in your deck at the moment.
Brainspoil is...poor removal. I would remove it. Killing Wave, on the other hand, is a good choice for sweep, and Remorseless Punishment and Temporal Extortion are nice. I like Near-Death Experience as an alternate win-con, but Path of Bravery is going to hamper that, especially since you don't appear to have super-consistent lifegain.
You have...two? infect cards. I would remove them since infect is really an alternate win-con that you aren't geared toward. Diseased Vermin might make for an alternate rat if you must have a rat, especially if you can give it evasion somehow, and it works with lifelink. It's not a strong pick for the deck, though.
Seekers' Squire doesn't really seem to fit any of your themes.
Ones that work somewhat with the life drain: Defiant Bloodlord, Retreat to Hagra, Thrull Parasite, Bontu's Monument, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Underworld Coinsmith (this would be a reason to keep Heliod, actually), Zulaport Cutthroat, and maybe Vizkopa Confessor
Others that pay life or give you life somehow: Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Chainer, Dementia Master, Cruel Sadist, Phyrexian Reclamation, Vona, Butcher of Magan, and Elenda, the Dusk Rose (for working with your creatures dying).
All of this, of course, is subject to what you're willing to buy, and you don't have to listen to anything I say. It's your deck, after all.

So, I run this commander with a similar strategy and I've found the following cards works really good for beating face when they come out. Anointed Procession is a powerhouse card if you can get it out onto the field. Since Edgar naturally produces tokens no matter where he it, this doubles those tokens made. I usually use them for a meat shield and sacrifice outlet when this happens, Teferi's Protection is an amazing card to draw when things aren't going your way with this deck also. Specially when you have more than two opponents and need to figure out what to do next, and Sanguine Bond + Blood Tribute is a great infinite combo that was pointed out to me that goes great in this deck.
