Bloodhall Priest Discussion

Hey guys I'm new to the forum and returning to Magic from a long break. The last set that came out before I gave it up was the Urzas set.
Anyways, out of boredom I started playing magic duels on my Xbox and then reconnected with some of my old friends who still play magic. I'd like to get a paper version of the my favorite deck from duels but am so out of touch with the game I'm not even sure what's out there. The format is pretty casual, but from what I can tell most of the decks my friends use would likely fall into modern format, but there are also some really old cards too, so im pretty flexible as far as sets I can use. Lastly I'd like to keep this fairly budget, I like the game but am not sure I'm ready to sink real money into it yet... and yes I realize that means the the liliana in the deck list has to come out.
The main thing I like about this deck is the interaction between the ruthless snipers, the various discard enablers and the madness mechanic. So I'm hoping you all could make some suggestions to take further advantage of that. I realize some cards in there aren't great but they're what i have available on the video game.
2 Cryptbreaker, 3 Ruthless Sniper, 2 Sanitarium Skeleton, 2 Lightning Axe, 3 Furyblade Vampire, 2 Call the Bloodline, 2 Macabre Waltz, 1 avacyn's judgement, 2 Distemper of the Blood, 3 Bloodmad Vampire, 1 Olivia, Mobilized for War, 4 firey temper , 1 Liliana, the Last Hope, 1 Avaricious Dragon, 2 Bloodhall Priest, 2 Merciless Javelineer, 1 Biting Rain, 1 Cut / Ribbons, 2 Horror of the Broken Lands, 1 Incorrigible Youth,

Madness vampires are one of my favorite decks, but let me give you a few suggestions. Bloodhall Priest was always less impactful than I wanted her to be when I first had her in this deck, I instead replaced her with Falkenrath Aristocrat, who has won me countless games since. Also, Falkenrath Gorger is definitely a card you should consider having 4 of in your deck. Its never not useful. Heir of Falkenrath Flip is another card to consider. Shes one of my favorite vamps in the deck, and doesnt cause you to fizzle our as quickly as Furyblade Vampire, who requires a discard every turn. Heir has also won me many games. Stensia Masquerade is another card I had in my original deck but never proved as useful as just having more Stromkirk captains. They provide more bodies and an immediate boost in power to our other vampires. Lastly, at least in my meta, Lightning Axe and Dark Withering proved far more useful to have more of in this deck than Alms of the Vein, which is best against burn type decks. Also checkout Big Game Hunter for sideboard options. Hes a lot of fun.
Hope you find my thoughts useful and happy blood sucking!

Collective Brutality can help enable madness for Bloodhall Priest and adding some Bloodghast will help along with being able to activate more of collective brutalities abilities since you wouldn't care about dumping then into the grave.

I used to play a deck that was very similar to this! Just a couple things to point out about it...
Master of the Feast is a legit beat stick in this deck. A lot of decks just can't deal with a 5/5 flier, and if you tear their hand apart anyway, the extra card won't often matter since the key components of the hand are gone.
I personally like Liliana of the Veil much better in these lists. Other lili works great, but constant discard is better since you're planning to discard to Pack Rat instead. This keeps up card parity later on.
Other than that, the deck looks sweet! I run 2-of Bloodhall Priest since she goes well with my deck, having a flier that will deal up to 6 damage a turn is great in war of attrition!

Suggestions:Vampires Olivia Voldaren
Defiant Bloodlord More expensive Vizkopa Guildmage or Sanguine Bond but on theme and more combo pieces
Vampiric Tutor -tutors are great
Mastermind's Acquisition -another tutor also "wish" affect allowing you to grab legal cards outside of game*
Non-vampires but solid combo/synergy cards
Bloodstained Mire-Any "fetch" lands to help mana fixing and to grab dual lands

Thanks for the feedback, Silver_Lining2.
About your deck, how competitive are you trying to be and in what direction are you trying to take the deck?
Bloodhall Priest is not bad on its face but it starts to fall short if you compare it too closely to other vamps. Its too little damage and too expensive for aggro and being empty handed is not what midrange wants to be doing. Typically we can access damage easier by just stacking lords. We dont need to abide by any hand restriction to do that. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet will gain you more life. Sanctum Seeker will reward you better for dumping your hand, Olivia Voldaren is evasive. Even some three mana lords will equate to better damage output.

I like this! I've got a very similar build over at Rakdos Vampires. Could you check it out and see what you think? Also, what do you think of Bloodhall Priest? He's a Shock on a stick, with madness, and a good body to boot.
