Bloodline Keeper Discussion
22 hours ago
Hello. I am stepping out of the shadows for a moment to offer a few tips for you as I am a fellow stalker of the night..
I see you have Bloodline Keeper Flip on your maybe board. Try swapping 2 of them for both of your Drana's.. in my opinion it is a more powerful card, plus you can have them both out at the same time! You will also be pooping out more vampires for Vampire Nocturnus to pump. Totally worth paying the extra swamp.
I agree that discard is a must! With a creature heavy deck you want to be able to get rid of your opponents pesky removal spells, and artifacts, before they are cast. With a mono black deck, making them discard is the best way to go about this. My suggestion is Duress. Although not the most competitive option, it does exactly all of that and is WAY more affordable. It doesn't deal with creatures, but that's what Go for the Throat is for, right? If your group is playing tron though, you may spend the extra dough for some Thoughtseize and have the option to target land as well.
I hope this helps! Feel free to check out my mono-black vampire tribal deck, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, for more ideas. It is not necessarily competitive but it is still fun to play!

However there are a few very strong vampires in modern as well. First of all Vampire Nocturnus is arguably the best vampire lord ever printed. I run him in my Vampire Modern Deck (it's not too competetive) and he can turn games around by himself, I even included Evolving Wilds just to allow me to shuffly away lands on top (because they are colorless).
If it fits the budget Bloodghast is a nice recurring threat.
Personally I do not really like the black enchantments, but thats just preference. If you use them to trigger Heroic on Agent of the Fates you might want to look into Gatekeeper of Malakir. It even adds to your vampires.
I always wanted to include Tainted Remedy in my vmpire deck. It fit's the Vampire theme and seems pretty good, although it might be more of a sideboard card.
I really like your deck. keep it up.

Thank you for your insights!
Yeah, but I think you are correct though. My previous deck tried to have a little bit of both (control and semi aggro)... I believe it is just better to keep to one of those instead than trying to do something in between which in the end turns out to be nothing.
First of, I need to buy the damn Bloodghast and some 1 drops I think. Vicious Conquistador feels to be fitting in good as a 1 drop. Then I will look in to changing the lands a bit. Exquisite Bond will end in an infinite loop with Sanguine Bond which end the game in a draw according to the rules.
I actually got my hands on Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle yesterday, so I will try to slot that in as well.
I think I have a fairly good idea of how to achive this deck now! Thanks a lot man :)

It's such a pain to play against. I love it. I hate it. Here are some ideas: Necropolis Regent is just sick. Bloodline Keeper Flip is damn-near broken and still affordable. Champion of Dusk is such a good way to refill your hand. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is $$$, but extremely powerful. Malakir Bloodwitch can straight win games. And finally, Olivia Voldaren is probably my favorite vampire of all time. I think you might want more card draw in the form of Phyrexian Arenas and stuff to keep your gas going strong through the late-game. Keep kicking ass with us! :D

I would replace Gatekeeper of Malakir with Bloodline Keeper Flip. As it currently stands, you are essentially playing 3 for a 2/2 with no evasion and a subpar effect. Bloodline is one more, has a bigger body with evasion and makes your other vampires more lethal when you transform it, which can be done at instant speed.

Bloodline Keeper Flip is a tad too expensive for me to purchase, and I think Anowon, the Ruin Sage isn't aggressive enough, since he has to survive a whole round before doing anything while possessing mediocre stats.

I think you're off to a good start. I like your low average CMC and the balance of your deck. Here are some things I think you can add to make it more powerful still:
- Bloodline Keeper Flip: token generator that can evolve to give your stuff pretty strong bonuses; great value for CMC 4.
- Captivating Vampire: because stealing people's stuff is fun.
- Drana, Liberator of Malakir: seems like a great way to boost all of your creatures.
- Kalastria Highborn: especially when you have mana and a few creatures on the table, this seems a very nice card to make people twice about board-wiping you.
- Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet: not exactly cheap to acquire yet very dangerous for any opponent who relies on their graveyard during play.
- Necropolis Regent: your opponents had better have some blockers :)
- Vampire Nocturnus: nice bonuses to your vamps as long as your top card is black.
- Urza's Incubator: helloooo cheap vamps :)
Hope any of this makes sense. Have fun with the deck.
