@Snap157 - Unfortunately some counterfeiters have learned to transplant the foil stamp from existing cards to fakes. It's not likely they'd waste their time on something like Bloodline Keeper  Flip when they could crank out Scalding Tarns or other similar chase cards. It's still more profitable to sell fakes of older cards. No one is really pursuing faking hollow stamps because newer cards don't tend to be as expensive, but they'll crack it when it becomes financially worth spending time on it.

-Cut Deathgreeter-Add Indulgent Aristocrat

Deathgreeter being a non vampire is a liability. I know he has killer abs and looks like Voldemort but I think we can do better.

-Cut Kheru Mind-Eater-Add Bloodline Keeper  Flip

You still have to pay the correct mana cost for cards exiled with KME, so any blue or green cards are dead draws. Seems underwhelming comparatively.

Plus the WB vampire from Ixalan block that gives all vampires +1/+1

Glad you like it! I can confirm you that the deck is indeed very fun and easy to play.

Playing with three colours can be a big deal in terms of budget, since you have to start investing some money in the manabase. Luckily, there are a few budget solutions in the form of painlands (Battlefield Forge, Caves of Koilos and Sulfurous Springs) and fastlands (Clifftop Retreat, Isolated Chapel and Dragonskull Summit, which are all relatively cheap. Exotic Orchard is one of my favourite budget lands, since in multiplayer it is basically a second copy of Command Tower. You can consider it a cheap alternative to the more expensive Reflecting Pool and Mana Confluence. As for shocklands and fetchlands, you can definitely start playing without them and get them over time. I wouldn't recommend, however, including too many lands that come into play tapped (like guildgates) because we can't afford to lose tempo with this kind of deck. Until you get the more expensive dual lands, basic lands are the way to go. Throw all the signets in, as well as a Chromatic Lantern (this one here is truly mandatory in three, four and five-colour decks), and your manabase should be fine. The rest of the deck is moderately cheap. While some cards like Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Anointed Procession are must-haves, you can find budget alternatives to a lot of the other cards (just to give you an example, Boros Charm or Rootborn Defenses do a decent impression of the more expensive Teferi's Protection).

Good luck building your deck and thanks again for the feedback!

SoulsSlayerKnight absolutely! I think Edgar Markov is a great commander, especially if you're new/returning, becasue the value engine is already built in. You don't have to do anything. Just cast Vampires and get rewarded for playing! Feels good!

Eddie isn't hard to build, just throw in your favorite vampires and get value! but a few importnat cards I'd try:

Hope some of this helps!

Hey Seedubs3, I am making a a little bit of a synergy and sacrifice deck. I have cards like Culling the Weak and Indulgent Aristocrat and then I get them back with Sheoldred, Whispering One, Disentomb, and Macabre Waltz. My synergy includes cards like Vampire Nocturnus, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and Malakir Bloodwitch. So with it being so late last night I fell asleep making the deck lol! So If you could post your deck that would be awesome because I think I am just starting to look for some fillers.

I definitely recommend having the Captivating Vampire card since most of the cards shown here are mostly low cost and also all vampires mainly, in this case, I'd prefer switching out a couple of the "never return" ones for a couple more call to the feast, that way not only are you able to gain more vampire lifelink tokens but thanks to CV ability to give them all +1 counters really helps bring them up to a higher level. Any other cards you have that increases vampires counter's like Bloodline Keeper  Flip are really helpful. in my opinion, consider adding a couple more higher costing cards if you have any like some with the ability bloodthirst . If there's any other cards I may recommend try Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, maybe Anowan, the Ruin Sage and I prefer Sanctum Seeker. A couple enchantment cards like one I personally use myself and highly recommend is Sanguine Bond and pricey but Exquisite Blood, out of everything though legion lieutenant is a really good choice for this deck, the lands are well balance but since its more of a black deck, try to go for that a bit more or balance them out with black/white cards as I tried to recommend. Anything else I can add it would be add an enchantment or two while maintaining a 60 card deck. Hope I helped in some way :). Joined a week ago.

While you've answered your own question, I was intrigued by the issue and did a quick look through the rules for my own edification. I figured I'd pass along my results on the off-chance you ever see a legal version of this interaction.

When a card like Lord of Lineage is put in any zone other than the battlefield, it only has the characteristics of Bloodline Keeper  Flip (Rule 711.4a). It is still the same object, and still the card exiled with Ixalan's Binding, it just has a different name now than when exiled.

This means the "exiled card" would be named Bloodline Keeper  Flip and your opponents would be unable to cast spells with that name.
