Eemanor on Life gain aggression

Hexcimal my man, sorry for taking so long to reply to your comment, but as you can see a lot has changed in my deck. I believe I have reached its final iteration, although I'm always trying new things. I got rid of the Soulmender since it wasn't doing much and Bloodbond Vampire it came in too late to be relevant. Also changed Lone Missionary for Augur il-Vec I know it seems like a bad idea for a creature, but I bassicaly use it as controlable life gain, waiting for the best moment to sac it and get 4 life or to sac it to Hidden Stockpile and get the scry and token, this allows me to better control my draws and start the self feeding engine assuring a creature entering the battlefield every turn.

As for alternate win conditions I got a sweet infinite combo that just drains the opponents life combining Exquisite Blood and Cliffhaven Vampire. Beating my oppponent to the ground is still the main idea but this combo has won me games where the board state was unfavorable or I was way too low in lifge to risk attacking.

Removal also got some upgrades with Anguished Unmaking to eliminate anything but lands and Unmake to take out big problematic creatures. Fatal Push is still on trial period. I'm considering Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares to replace it since they are more flexible.

Lands got pimped too, Scoured Barrens is just lovely and also cheap, the downside of Caves of Koilos is practically negligible thanks to the nature of the deck, the scry provided by Temple of Silence comes in very handy most of the time, and Shambling Vent have done a good job at blocking and attacking when I'm low on creatures or need some life gain to occur. I'm only missing to acquire the Isolated Chapel (their recent price increase hasn't helped tho, but I'll get them soon).

Let me know what you think of this new and almost final version, I'm also thinking about building a sideboard that would transform it into a B/W tokens deck, just to throw off my opponent and have two strategies in one deck.

I agree with Argy to a limited extent. Yes- an agro deck can run over this deck, but there are counters. I like Supernatural Stamina and Wander in Death for a black death-touch deck. Just keep returning your death-touch creatures. A single Noxious Gearhulk might be a useful addition and Bloodbond Vampire would be a useful stop-gap card that temporarily holds a place in this deck (it is cheap enough).

I put together Curse of Deathtouch as a fun deck for casual play (standard legal) and had an even stronger focus on small deathtouch creatures and curses.

OK this deck has quite a few problems:

Here's what I would try:

-3 Bone Picker
-3 Torment of Scarabs

+3 Apocalypse Demon
+3 Bloodbond Vampire

Very nice adds to the vampire deck. Me, personally, I'll be cutting as much white as I can and focus on the red/black vampires. Berserkers' Onslaught and Rage Reflection are two possible adds, Blood Seeker, Bloodbond Vampire, Chancellor of the Dross, Gifted Aetherborn, and Whip of Erebos will probably go into my deck as well. I do like that Phyrexian Reclamation. Season of the Witch with Throne of the God-Pharaoh makes everyone play an aggro game with the clear advantage to you.

Bodyrocker, Cartel Aristocrat gives us extra sacrifice channels. In a pinch we can create an indestructible blocker while trigging the Festering Newt's -4-4 or Drainpipe Vermin's discard. One combo I've landed is putting Gift of Immortality onto the Drainpipe Vermin, and using Cartel Aristocrat to sacrifice during the opponents draw phase, rendering them unable to play any cards as their hand was empty, and allowed me to continuously block a 9/9 Bloodbond Vampire

I've always been a fan of WB life gain. If you're looking for cheap, low-to-the-ground creatures, there's always Lone Rider  Flip or Sacred Cat. A good heavy hitter would be Bloodbond Vampire. Finally, if you find yourself going against control decks, you have Kambal, Consul of Allocation. Hope this gives you some ideas!

Pretty good deck! I am running something similar, I like having Bloodbond Vampire, Mephidross Vampire, and Necropolis Regent. Another good one (not sure how it fits your deck) is Sangromancer
