Bloodbond Vampire Discussion

SynergyBuild, what do you think of the possible addition of Leonin Warleader? Maybe replacing the Bloodline Keeper  Flips? Although that would get rid of the Indulgent Aristocrat/Bloodline Keeper  Flip combo of creating a bunch of powerful vampires... However, it would create another avenue for more lifelink to beef up Ajani's Pridemate, Bloodbond Vampire, and Serra Ascendant.

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?

cool deck idea, some suggestions: maybe take out Angelic Gift? it doesn't synergize with the lifegain theme, and maybe add Bloodbond Vampire ? although it competes for the 4 drop slot. I also would recommend looking at Survival Cache, Consuming Vapors as they can trigger pridemate multiple times. lastly, maybe Souls of the Faultless ? idk just some ideas.

Hello! Your deck is based on life-gain theme so I think Drana's Emissary, Cliffhaven Vampire and Bloodbond Vampire would be a nice addition.

I'd also recommend to experiment with Rings of Brighthearth. For example Licia, sanguine Tribune + Rings of Brighthearth = six +1/+1 counters.

You probably need to add some more 1-drop Vampires to your list to start aggressing early. I've been playing a guy's casual Vampire deck since I first started playing Magic some 6 years ago, and I still have trouble beating it; it's just that powerful.

Viscera Seer is super great at filtering out bad draws, as well as being a sac outlet. Never underestimate sac outlets. Recommend as a 2-of.

Vicious Conquistador is the (almost) strictly better Pulse Tracker, and nothing's about as good as extra noncombat life loss. A playset is ideal.

For 2-drops, I see you have a playset of Gifted Aetherborn, which is top-notch, and I also recommend Kalastria Highborn for eking out the last bits of life from your opponent with suicide attacks. Gatekeeper of Malakir is also a beast; filling your curve and/or providing removal is efficiency at its finest.

Filling out Captivating Vampire to a playset would be the next ideal thing to do. Having all the lords you can always helps.

In terms of removal, Victim of Night technically hits the most creatures, but Doom Blade, Go for the Throat, Grasp of Darkness, Dismember, and Disfigure are also all good choices.

Throw in an extra copy or two of Blade of the Bloodchief. Its damn cheap to play and equip, and it gets stupid fast.

If you want cutting recommendations, Bloodbond Vampire isn't fantastic, you're not running boardwipes or discard for Sangromancer, Alms of the Vein doesn't have a madness outlet, Dash Hopes doesn't always work the way you want it to (but keep it in if you want; it's always fun to play), and while Viridian Longbow is cute, it's a bit too expensive to equip, and more often than not, you want to be aggressive with your creatures.

Hopefully this helps!

Your deck has a vampire them going, and I imagine it works well. If you want to improve it my first suggestion would be to replace non vampire 2 drops with Gifted Aetherborn. My next suggestion would be to get a vampire lord like Captivating Vampire or Bloodline Keeper  Flip in place of more non vampire creatures. Lastly, Shriekmaw can be replaced with Murder and get many more targets. Rain of Tears is powerful, but if your focus isn't destroying lands you could make better use of Sign in Blood to either finish off your opponent or refill your hand. Duress and Distress can be uprgaded to Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek. In the same vein you could uprgade Bloodbond Vampire with Asylum Visitor or Vampire Nocturnus one last good card is Feast of Blood.

I recently changed my vampire deck to be black/white very similar to yours. runs really well. might try to add some Bloodbond Vampire due to how your deck is setup. i did and it seems to run good.

Here is mine if you want to take a look.
