Upvoted, cool deck :D

For my suggestions, I'd run more of the lords/tribal effects (vampires have a ton), and cut some of the more vanilla vampires. I'd search gatherer for any card containing the rule text "vampire" (and limiting to your colors).

Also, EDH is all about huge effects, and Stensia Innkeeper or Night Revelers are going to have a tough time keeping up. I like to imagine the worst case scenario, and see how the creature would do. For instance, your opponent has a Followed Footsteps on a Grave Titan. Something like Bloodline Keeper might stall a bit, but Falkenrath Reaver is just going to get overrun.

My friend has a vampire deck, and some effective bombs that I'd suggest are Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Malakir Bloodwitch, and Patron of the Vein.You could also run more solid, supporty cards like Rakish Heir, Stensia Masquerade, Stromkirk Captain, and Aphetto Dredging. Also, Basilisk Collar, Lightning Greaves, and Swiftfoot Boots are nice for your commander.

Ixalan also gave you a couple more draining cards: Bishop of the Bloodstained, Sanctum Seeker

IMO, burn spells are generally not as good as the straight removal some of the other people suggested. My suggestions would be Sudden Death, Sudden Spoiling, and Urge to Feed, or, if you want a burn package to finish out opponents, Burn from Within, Fall of the Titans, Devil's Play, or Banefire (all of which have some sort of utility/reusability).

Finally, more draw spells make your deck much more consistent. Greed, Arguel's Blood Fast, Toil / Trouble, and Wretched Confluence. Again, the more utility/reusability the card has, the better.

Intruder alarm combos with almost anything. Find as the combination that has the most cards that siglehandedly combo with alarm. I personally think esper is the combination to go for, since you have access to Zur the Enchanter to tutor IA with.

Thraben Doomsayer and Bloodline Keeper and anything that puts creatures into play for free is awesome.

Bloodline Keeper is another possibility, albeit extremely slow and a huge immediate target

Hey, consider Bloodline Keeper, Erebos, God of the Dead, Zulaport Cutthroat, Hero's Downfall and Tragic Slip?

Keeper could replace Noosegraf Mob, Erebos could replace Greed, Cutthroat could replace Charcoal Diamond, Downfall could replace Doom Blade and Slip could replace Go for the Throat.

nlidmasterThank you for your help! I tried putting Blood Artist for the drain several times, but all the good creatures for the deck have a pretty good black devotion rate, so i took one nocturnus and all the high-B-required cards in purpose, for being able to pay several Kalastria Highborn triggers with the Nykthos. That makes her actually better than the Blood Artist and solves a little bit the curve problem that almost all Vampire decks have (maybe not the BR). I tried it and by all means 3 Nykthos are too much, so you're right XD. But I'd leave 2 in there, because of what I said.

This Deck is still on progress, it's still a prototype, so your comment is helping me a lot! I'll have to test it against other modern decks to see what it's lacking. The problem of the 4-drops is true, but Captivating Vampire seems just not as good as Bloodline Keeper... Maybe I'll put Queen's Commission instead of Call to the Feast, taking in consideration the x3 Anointed Procession.

I'll check it and I'll let you know. I'll insist in the deck, because I love Orzhov and I love Vampires, so... I won't surrender till I see this work.

Thanks a lot again!

redhead4 Im a fan of your using Arguel's Blood Fast. I thought of throwing it in my deck too. In my opinion I think your deck might work more smoothly with less four drops. If you really like Bloodline Keeper then Id recommend removing Vampire Nocturnus since he requires 3B which can be hit or miss in decks with more than one color. Instead youd probably find a lot of success with putting in Blood Artist since youll be dishing out way more tokens than my deck would. Also, Vault of the Archangel is dope and its going in my deck. However, I think maybe you have too many non basic lands. Maybe removing Nythkos, or one of the dual lands and putting in some plains/swamps will help. These are just ideas, not sure if theyll work, but might be worth a shot.

redhead4 I love Bloodline Keeper, and maybe Ill try him in the future. However I already have enough four mana cost cards between Sanctum Seeker and Call to the Feast. Neither of which I would remove for Keeper. And yeah, Anguished Unmaking seems awesome, but its expensive when compared to Path to Exile or Fatal Push. I just like how it stnergises with the life gain I guess. Thanks for your input!
