Bloodline Keeper Discussion

Since your theme is minions, I think you should try more token cards (if you want). I know some of my suggestions have a high mana cost, but they are only suggestions.
Abhorrent Overlord would produce a couple tokens since you play mono-black and you could sacrifice the thrulls every turn to keep their amount under control.
Archdemon of Unx sacrifice thrulls to get stronger zombies.
Army of the Damned hell a lot of zombies!
Endless Ranks of the Dead only works with zombies, but produces a lot of tokens.
Ghoulcaller Gisa is really strong also.

The thing I hate abut vampire decks is that there are so many vampires that it's often difficult to figure out which ones are the best suited for the deck. I have a RB Vampires deck and I include some of the best vampires in my opinion in the deck. I definitely recommend mainboarding a playset of Gatekeeper of Malakir as he is very good. Due to requiring 3 Black, I recommend not using 4 Vampire Nocturnus. I run 1 of him mostly because that's all I have but still, I don't think having 4 of him will benefit you much as there are other staples that you could be using instead. Markov Blademaster is a great card to add because of how powerful it is. Combine it with Rakish Heir and after one attack you have a 5/5 Double Strike that will only get stronger. I recommend getting another Stromkirk Noble for the deck as he is a great card to open a game with and apply pressure early. I don't know how I feel about Kalastria Highborn. She has her uses but I feel like there might be better options out there. Malakir Bloodwitch isn't that good in my opinion because the chances of having enough vampires out to make her relevant is low. Falkenrath Aristocrat has a deck that is tailored to her and this is not that deck. I would take her out. I would also take out Vampire Hexmage as there are a lot better options out there. Bloodline Keeper Flip is strong as he makes tokens as well as contributes a very hardy boost once he is flipped. I recommend at least one of him in the deck. Anowon, the Ruin Sage is really good as it makes your opponents sacrifice creatures. This lets you get in more with your vampires. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is a sweet card that can make your vampires really scary when they are cast. Mirri the Cursed and Olivia Voldaren are good but I don't particularly care for them in this deck but that's just me.

Maybe you should try vampires OR demons. Bloodline Keeper Flip would be more effective. Stromkirk Captain, Blood Seeker,Blood Artist, and/or Tithe Drinker should work for a vampires deck. Although you may want add more lifegain and +1/+1 counters vampires if you go vampires.

No Mesmeric Orb, Eater of the Dead, Undead Alchemist, or Intruder Alarm? These are serious musts in any Phenax multiplayer mill deck. Also,Bloodline Keeper Flip and the Alchemist combo well with Alarm.

Visions of Beyond for draw
Umbral Mantle is also cool.
Tainted Isle could be an okay land.
Consuming Aberration is a beast in a Phenax deck.

I actually made a R/B vamp deck like a year or two ago, and it was pretty fun.Vampires R/B

Yearh, I have thought about it a lot today and you are right, I somewhat just want to smash everything together. As long as there is the word vampire on the card, I automatically think it should be in the deck. And then one card follows a specific strategy and another card follows a different one, and my solution is just to throw even more cards into the mix; and I just makes everything really messy. I want to have an agro styled deck with deathtouch to just smash through everything, I want to have a lifelink deck where I build up to more powerfull creatures, I want a deck were I sacrifice almost everything to really boost up a few creatures. And all of that doesnt really match up in the end.
So, I kind of want three decks it seems. One that focus on vampires all over the place, one that focus on lifelink and one that focuses on sacrifice.
I actually really like the deck you just showed me Baltec. So simple and not stuffed with everything I could possibly find, haha :D Would you mind telling me how to use it? I guess Bloodline Keeper Flip is the main focus, which I need to protect and get rolling? Or? :D
Ill go back to the drawing board and try to make a sacrificing deck with Falkenrath Aristocrat cause I am really starting to love that card. I actually think the artwork is incredible and maybe even tops Olivia Voldaren. (Sorry Square711, please dont kill me haha :D).

Haha! No worries mate, you explain it all perfectly. It is really awesome that you tell, not only what I can do differently, but also why you think I should do it differently. It helps me a lot, and it also makes me think differently about the game in general and other ways I might be able to play. So two big thumps up! :D
I have listen to your suggestions and tried to trim out a lot of the fat in the deck mainly a few too many high cost creatures. My current creature/mana distribution is as below:
- x1 mana: 6
- x2 mana: 7
- x3 mana: 2
- x4 mana: 6
- x6 mana:1
I am still afraid I might have a few too many and Im seriously thinking about switching my Necropolis Regent for one or two Kalastria Highborn. But Im still hesitant. Maybe its because the only deck Ive tried was blue/green with focus on Hydras and Krakens, and I therefor find comfort in putting down a big bad beast but yearh, I dont know. I still have Olivia Voldaren and three transformed Bloodline Keepers I can find comfort in.
I totally see your point in me needing some spells, so I have added every single one you mentioned. I specifically like Grave Pact. I understand the idea behind Sign in Blood but the fact that I need to pay two life frightens me a little bit. But if I can get some lifesteal up n runnin it shouldnt be a problem (I hope). I have not put in Tragic Slip for that simple reason that I dont understand it, haha. :D Wouldnt it be better with just an extra of the insta spells?
