Bloodchief Ascension

Enchantment

At the beginning of each end step, if an opponent lost 2 or more life this turn, you may put a quest counter on Bloodchief Ascension. (Damage causes loss of life.)

Whenever a card is put into an opponent's graveyard from anywhere, if Bloodchief Ascension has three or more quest counters on it, you may have that player lose 2 life. If you do, you gain 2 life.

Bloodchief Ascension has won her a lot of games no one ever wants to waste a enchantment destroy on it. They save them for Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond . Cause everyone expects her to drop several of both in a game. The Quag Sickness is an indestructible kill card. Mark of the Vampire is mainly flavor and life gain is never bad either. And yes it really is her deck i want to make it BW and she won't let me lol

How did I miss Bloodline Keeper  Flip ?
Of course that's an auto-include.

For casual gameplay, I'd keep 1 Sengir Vampire .
Whenever I'd draft it and play it, it tended to make my opponent go "Ooooo".
That's kind of the reaction you want - It makes things fun when you're playing casual.

On the topic of cutting enchantments like Bloodchief Ascension , Mark of the Vampire , Quag Sickness , I wouldn't.
More variety = more fun.
Same goes with One-of (Fun-of) creatures.

If you really do have a girlfriend, and she really does play mono black vampires, you want to keep her interested, not bored.
Fun-ofs makes this happen.
Also congrats. I can't find many females that willing to actually play MTG...

Cool deck. Has a lot of high cmc cards though. You might want to add some mana rocks. I'd add Talisman of Dominance , Dimir Signet and maybe a Mana Vault or Worn Powerstone and an Expedition Map . I think you are better off using Chromatic Lantern instead of Darksteel Ingot.

You can also use Duskmantle Guildmage or Bloodchief Ascension to combo with your Mindcrank.

Soul of Innistrad can be replaced with Phyrexian Reclamation . Hedron Crab with Nemesis of Reason . Some creatures might also like are Massacre Wurm and Consecrated Sphinx (for your jace's erasure).

Thespian's Stage is going to be awesome especially with a Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth in play.

Spells

I recommend Exsanguinate . It can be an awesome card to have late in the game.

Hinder is also a good card since you're already using Tunnel Vision.

Some more tutors (Demonic Tutor , Vampiric Tutor , Beseech the Queen ), removals (Dismember , Pongify ) and maybe Lightning Greaves to help you keep some of your important creatures in play.

Your manabase could use some work. I know this sounds like a shameless plug but you might want to check out my Apocalypse Project . It was a Lazav deck once. Recently changed the commander to Oona. It is a lot different from your concept but i'm sure you'll find cards there that will fit into your deck.

dalt132 I plan on adding in Bloodchief Ascension , I just haven't been able to find a copy to trade.

Chancellor of the Spires is a card that I have playtested with, but it never turned up the results I wanted. Its in hand effect gave me a lot of early game hate, and its ETB effect never really pulled anything valuable. It wasn't even useful as a Mimeoplasm target since there was always something better or bigger. It's still a good card, but I don't intend to run it.

As for Mind Sculpt , I don't intend to keep it there forever. It will eventually be replaced by Glimpse the Unthinkable , and it is in my deck solely as an early source of mill to give me more answers or disrupt scrying.

I recommend removing Mind Sculpt as it is a single target mill for a relatively small amount. Instead, I recommend Bloodchief Ascension , as it triggers off of mill and Chancellor of the Spires , as it not only can mill, but also has powerful ETB effect

qwertyking: Issue being with those cards is that they're going to do a lot of damage to me way too fast. The whole purpose of the deck is to play Maralen of the Mornsong as quick as possible, go get Dark Sphere , Ad Nausem, and Sickening Dreams and kill my opponents while preventing half the damage to me. While Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond is a fun combo, its not efficient for the deck. Bloodchief Ascension could possibly work.. and Mindcrank would not work since they're only putting one card in hand per turn, not drawing a significant amount.
