Bloodline Keeper Discussion

CChaos I'd say that these seem to be go-tos (as well as yours).

Flip Jace, Westvale Abbey, Huntmaster, Neglected Heirloom, Garruk Relentless, Elbrus, the Binding Blade, Delver, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, TitI.

Judged by story relevance, power (notoriety), and in the case of the Heirloom, mechanics.

I think you could add the following: Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Necropolis Regent, Rakish Heir and Stensia Masquerade? There are other options that require a bit more budget like Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Captivating Vampire and Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet.

I like the concept, what about Thraben Doomsayer so you have a fair blocker that taps for tokens or maybe Bloodline Keeper  Flip

Oh right. i forgot these. Erebos, God of the Dead, Erebos's Titan, Bloodline Keeper  Flip. Also, do you have a specific list for this mono black deck? Could you post it?

You missed one of the best vampires: Captivating Vampire.

Other than that, you are bringing too many 5 cmc cards. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is a real edh staple, I think, but if you are far enough ahead to actually play it, AND deal damage to your opponent, the bonus it provides are entirely redundant (it's a win-more card).

What is it exactly you are going to sac to your Indulgent Aristocrat? As far as I can tell, it takes a very non-interacting opponent to let you have enough vampires to sac anything and gain advantage from it. You don't have any tokens from Bloodline Keeper  Flip until turn 5 at earliest, and the rest of your deck doesn't hold much sac-fodder.

Vampire Nocturnus is a pretty good lord for vampires, but is a lot better if you have some way of shuffling your library or otherwise rearrange what is on top of it).

Any other competitive tribal deck runs faster than this (including madness-vampires... what was your problem with that again?) and are more resilient. Your early creatures in particular are weaker than what merfolk, humans, and elves can bring. Gurmag Swiftwing isn't exactly the strongest creature, and most opponents have no problem letting it live, and instead bolt the lord you play a couple of turns later.

Your removal is also a bit heavy - 3 mana is a lot, in a world of Fatal Push and Path to Exile. For budget concerns, you could look at Victim of Night. It's only bad in the mirrormatch, and that's probably not going to come up very often.

Yeah, those are pretty good. I try to center my noncreatures around discard and destroy, and actually used to do well with Hymn to Tourach in Legacy, but had to do some tweaks for Modern. From playing I've felt like Blade of the Bloodchief already gets a lot of action from Bloodghast, the tokens I get with Bloodline Keeper  Flip and the combined ability with Viscera Seer. Vampire Nocturnus is a great creature card, especially for the flying ability it warrants other creatures. Even so, I never seemed to take good advantage of it, probably because it's a 4 drop, and I already have Bloodline Keeper  Flip for the same cost, so I've always felt like it didn't fit the rhythm of the deck, and rarely ever got a chance to use Nocturnus for a big advantage. Thanks!

I also have a b/r vampire deck budget vampires; and I started out very similar to you. [Now it's more of a pseudo-madness mardu vampires thing since I stuck a bunch of LoTV's and madness cards in it] but one thing I noticed is that Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Olivia Voldaren kind of play the same roll~ that is, to close out the game. I know how it feels to want to just steal creatures, but I think you should stick to a playset of one or the other. Along the same token (sorry), Captivating Vampire has always seemed, well... un-captivating, for lack of better word. At the price (~$7) It doesn't quite seem to be worth it as it's so susceptible removal. My personal substitution for that three drop slot was Gatekeeper of Malakir, as kicked early on it can really change the tide of the game. It's got the same body but it has more instant value. It also really helps take games long too. Pretty awesome being able to play him on turn 3 and force your opponent to sac a goyf before it turns into a 4/5 beater.

Also, Fatal Push.
