Bloodthrone Vampire Discussion
2 days ago
When comparing Bloodflow Connoisseur and Bloodthrone Vampire, the best way to pick is playtesting. Both vampires can eat your other creatures either when they're blocked or when they're blocking if they're going to die from combat damage afterward. The first one can keep its smaller +1/+1 buffs for later turns, but the second one gets mildly larger buffs which only matter in the moment. This temporary bonus makes using it slightly more situational, but occasionally more effective. I don't think either is hands-down better in all situations and I can't say which is better here without a few example situations with either of them. The Bloodthrone Vampire is certainly a great alternative for the Connoisseur.

I have been toying with the idea of adding another sac engine like Bloodflow Connoisseur. I was thinking of Bloodthrone Vampire. Dark Impostor would be a great idea for the sideboard, weird that I never considered it before.

As far as decks that benefit from sacrificing your own stuff, there are lots of half decent aristocrats lists. Bloodbriar likely would not make the cut in any of these, but cards like Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Cartel Aristocrat, Bloodthrone Vampire, Viscera Seer, Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Doomed Traveler, Abzan Ascendancy, Bridge from Below, Kitchen Finks, Blisterpod, Bloodsoaked Champion, Tukatongue Thallid, Bloodghast, Gravecrawler, Voice of Resurgence, Young Wolf, Blood Artist, Zulaport Cutthroat, Tidehollow Sculler, and Rally the Ancestors are all cards I would look at.
EDIT: Scapeshift wins in the aptly named "Scapeshift" or "TitanShift" (which also uses Primeval Titan) decks by ramping to 7 lands and shifting into 6 mountains and a Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle for 18 damage -- usually enough to kill most decks. If they have not yet taken damage for some reason, then going up to 8 lands for 7 mountains and a Valakut will hit for 21.

Indulgent Aristocrat seems to fit the theme, although I am unsure if I will swap it or not.
Bloodthrone Vampire doesn't provide permanent value for its sacrifice ability, so I will stray away from it.
Genesis Chamber Gives my opponent a wide board, which is a weakness of this deck.
Myr Servitor is interesting, but I can't sacrifice him and bring him back whilst attacking.
Vendetta Seems good for the sideboard
I prefer Bone Splinters to other budget removal, because it allows you to easily get two creature dying procs for abilities. It works when you don't have a dedicated sacrificer.
I'll look into hand disruption.

Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of mono black cards to help people put together decks.
If you're looking at budget vamp tribal with cheap enablers, there are other options for sac outlets and tenacious/reassembling. Dregscape Zombie, Call the Bloodline and Zombie Infestation is fairly inexpensive and very repeatable source of tokens and card advantage. Indulgent Aristocrat is amazing when equipped with blade and keeps the love spread across vampires- I'd consider swapping artist for it as you aren't going for the full zulaport package. Bloodthrone Vampire is a good way to force blocks whenever you have a board. To a lesser extent Vampire Cutthroat deserves a look, as its unblockable against many decks and really good at stabilizing with a few blade counters.
The second major cards to look at are cheap hand disruption. The various rats wreck a players hand when they enter play, and a sideboard full of Duress variants destroys some archetypes.
