Creature — Vampire Spirit
Bloodghast can't block.
Bloodghast has haste as long as an opponent has 10 or less life.
Landfall - Whenever a land enters the battlefield under your control, you may return Bloodghast from your graveyard to the battlefield.

Amazing deck and presentation! Looks really pleasurable to pilot. I love all the synergies you've built between Haakon and Elenda.
Here comes a few suggestions I've in mind :
Bitterblossom > not the funniest card you could find, but it is a real powerhouse alongside Attrition , Anointed Procession , Skullclamp , Dictate of Erebos etc. / I was a bit surprised it wasn't included.
Bloodghast > same note.
Enduring Renewal > makes you a bit more vulnerable against control match-ups as they can see and play around what you're trying to do, but it has the potential of being extra spicy there - giving you a lift at building up your combos.
Academy Rector > absurdly good at tutoring some of your combos. Expensive (money speaking) nonetheless.
Forbidden Orchard > fuel for Elenda against creatureless decks. Taps for any color.
Grave Betrayal > greedy and expensive card that only works against decks running valuable creatures. Good fun, poor consistency.

This could be a slick Mono-Black list. Probably a mono-black devotion deck. Gray Merchant of Asphodel , Geralf's Messenger , and Relentless Dead as a mini-zombie theme, Gatekeeper of Malakir , Bloodghast , and Kitesail Freebooter s to finish up the creature-base, with seriously high-value creatures, all of which add to devotion, and the rest of the mainboard can be removal like Fatal Push , Disfigure , Echoing Decay , Go for the Throat , etc. as well as discard in the forms of Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek .
A sideboard filled with Duress against control (as though they could surive your onslaught of discard and recursive threats in the mainboard), Leyline of the Void against dredge and phoenix, Fulminator Mage against tron, Whip of Erebos for needed midrangy lifegain and recursion shenanigans, and whatever suits your meta, be it Ratchet Bomb against artifacts, tokens, or enchantments you find troublesome, Night of Souls' Betrayal for anti-swarm, Phyrexian Arena / Dark Confidant if you need some more grind, etc.

No. I have nothing that I want to discard. No Arclight Phoenix . No Lingering Souls . No Bloodghast . And I'm in blue so I have access to real cantrips that I'd rather play. And Faithless Looting is card disadvantage.

ShikiTen In my opinion, both Bloodghast and Nether Traitor are worse than Reassembling Skeleton due to their inconsistency. With skeleton, I can reanimate it whenever I want for 2 mana, but the others need a specific scenario in order to reanimate. I'd play traitor over bloodghast since bloodghast can only reanimate itself up to a few times a turn, but they're all viable though if you need more effects like these.

I guess it is just clogging up the two drops to synergize with bloodghast. But in my experience, he's on curve for a 2/2 for 2 CMC, he can act as a pseudo-lord (great for when you're land flooded), and when you get a bloodghast with him it just feels too good.

Personally, I don't like the rate on Banewhip Punisher , Oathsworn Vampire (It's just really bad Bloodghast ), Sadistic Skymarcher , Tragic Poet , Foul-Tongue Shriek , Chalice of Life Flip, Fountain of Renewal , Bishop of the Bloodstained (Anthems and Sanctum Seeker will just be a lot more damage over the course of a game), Ravenous Chupacabra , Profane Procession Flip, or Underworld Connections . They're all just very low impact in a 40-life, 4-player format, with the exception of the last two. Profane Procession Flip is just so much more expensive than something like Rise of the Dark Realms , and while you're not the first person I've talked to who seems to think Underworld Connections is an acceptable substitute for Phyrexian Arena , man is it ever worse.
I don't like the rate on Call the Bloodline , either, unless you want to go deeper on a Madness or Reanimator theme, which could work, since you might want Voldaren Pariah Flip, anyway. If you did that, Call to the Netherworld gets back Elenda, Big Game Hunter is a nice replacement for Banewhip Punisher , Bishop of Rebirth could be decent, and bigger vamps like Nirkana Revenant , Patron of the Vein , Necropolis Regent , Guul Draz Overseer , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , and Butcher of Malakir become much more attractive. That would require a lot of changes, though. You could keep Profane Procession Flip and get a lot more out of Crypt of Agadeem that way, though, so maybe don't rule it out.

If this deck isn't focused on the Devotion Win then why play a Devotion deck? It's your best win con. I love midrange grindy matches but it's so much more efficient to fill the board with hard to remove creatures then land a Gary. (this is why Geralf's Messenger and Bloodghast are good, because they stick)
I would go 3x Seize 3x IoK and then fill those spaces with more creatures. I would also the MB Damnation and Collective Brutality (unless you add Bloodghast ) for more creatures. Put the Damnation on the SB.
What match ups are giving you trouble?
