Excellent Aetherflux reservoir! Suggestion based around my friend's Oloro deck God Wont Let Me Die 2 - Bloodbond Vampire - Children of Korlis (This basically gives you two shots from Aetherflux Reservoir. - Cliffhaven Vampire - Defiant Bloodlord - Famished Paladin - Felidar Sovereign - Serra Ascendant - Twilight Prophet

Dont know what you are trying to do with the deck since you have several cards for others builds in here.Dont see a use for Bloodbond Vampire since you not gaining much life.Bloodhusk Ritualist for my deck wasnt that good. Kheru Bloodsucker not worth since you dont have my creatures for it.No reason for him at all unless its a fillerSkeletal Changeling.Chainer's Edict feel like there are better things that do this. Planar Bridge tutors are better. Not the best for how you have this deck built right nowBlighted Fen. Geier Reach Sanitarium dont use lol. Piranha Marsh use a Swamp. Not worth it Sorin's Thirst. Wound Reflection great card but not made for this deck.

here are some better sacrifice cards: Barter in Blood Fleshbag Marauder Innocent Blood Plaguecrafter Smallpox Tyrant's Choice

better land drawMikokoro, Center of the Sea

Some suggested creatures: Asylum Visitor Crypt Ghast Dark Impostor Drana, Liberator of Malakir Magus of the Coffers Sangromancer Skeletal Vampire Stromkirk Condemned

instant/sorcery: Beseech the Queen Blood Tribute Dark Petition Diabolic Tutor Night's Whisper Read the Bones Zombify Murder Sudden Spoiling Ultimate Price Victim of Night

artifact: Sword of the Animist

This really looks like two separate, decent decks, mushed together into one deck that doesn't really feel like it knows where it's going. It's cool, but picking a lane would likely make this considerably stronger.

If you're mostly trying to lean into the lifegain triggers with beaters like Ajani's Pridemate and lots of little life gain like Soul's Attendant, you're actually aiming for something akin to the old competitive deck Soul Sisters. I'd definitely make a few of the following changes:

-Trade out the vampire tribal themes for creatures like Soul Warden and Auriok Champion. You'll get a lot more healing triggers, meaning a lot more growth for your beaters.

-Trade out Bloodbond Vampire for Archangel of Thune. It costs one more mana, but in return you get a creature that already has flying, has lifelink on the creature, and whenever you gain life it buffs every creature you have in play, instead of just itself.

-Trade out your recursion for single use token makers like Spectral Procession. You get more creatures for less mana, meaning more triggers for your new life gain creatures.

Alternatively, if you want to lean more into vampires... well there are a few ways to do it. My main suggestion would be to swap over to mono-black or B/R, but there are also good white vampires now. That particular design space is wide open still.

Deck Breakdown

I'm going to make hella recommendations for cards here. I'm not really sure what your budget is so I'll include cards that fall into the budget and non budget categories (Non budget mostly being a reasonable price, not the most optimal cards that tend to cost a ton of money.)

Hello! What do you think about concentrating on life-gain theme? Your commander is really great. So you can add many cards with ETB effects for example: Ajani's Pridemate, Bloodbond Vampire, Defiant Bloodlord,Archangel of Thune,Karlov of the Ghost Council.

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?
