Cabal Coffers Discussion
43 minutes ago
Adding a 5-7 more fetch lands would make the Sun Titan much more powerful aswell.
I do get the confusion though, the deck lacks a clear victory plan, instead relying on powerful cards to threaten the boardstate all by themself.I would advise to focus on a few engines and one of two victory conditions, in this deck Purphoros, God of the Forge and the token generators appears to be the strongest candidate.
It looks like the deck might struggle with it's mana curve aswell, having a high average cmc and possibly not enough ramp to get there in time.
To make room for some of these changes I would start by taking a long hard look at your planeswalkers, they appear to be slow to impact the board and few of them plays well with your general strategy.
Only one of them looks like it's powerful enough to matter on it's own, that would be Elspeth, Sun's Champion

Thanks for the ideas!
Also, I found an Imperial Seal for 68, so I'm definitely going to pick that one up. Is the mana good? Or do I need more swamps for Cabal Coffers and Nirkana Revenant? I would like your opinions please :)

Looks fun. You may want to reconsider Crypt Ghast as you're in 3 colors and he might not be that reliable. If you do keep him you might want to grab Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers. Chalice of Life Flip looks fun, You may want to throw in Fatestitcher to help you use it more (also Fatestitcher is just very versatile. You ahve enough Artifact ramp/fixing with the signets and Chromatic Lantern, you could easily cut Darksteel Ingot and Pristine Talisman. You have a lot of ways to gain life, but you might want a few cards that let you spend it like Toxic Deluge, Phyrexian Arena, or Necropotence

Nice list! Two thoughts:
In looking at your mana, your colors are evenly distributed but the mana costs in your deck are very heavily weighted towards green. It might be worth reflecting that more in your manabase. I'd also suggest getting rid of Cabal Coffers. Coffers + Urborg isn't what it used to be before Primeval Titan got banned and unless you have Urborg on the field it's only going to ever net you 1 mana, IF you have all 3 of your swamps. Add a basic forest instead, IMHO.
I feel like you could benefit from another cheap draw effect. Shamanic Revelation could be a good fit but it is contingent on having bodies and you already run Regal Force. Necropotence is amazing of course.

Yeah, it's tonnes of fun to play too. The main win-con is usually just getting Mikaeus out with a sac outlet and finding either Gray Merchant or Kokusho and some reanimation spells, but it's usually more fun just to ramp up and play random stuff depending on what you draw. Worst Fears is my favourite card in the whole deck, it's so much more stylish than just running Mindslaver. And honestly, I only use the tutors to get Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, because they're super good, but at the same time they don't ruin everyone else's fun like Ugin or Rise of the Dark Realms would.

deckbuilding takes a lot of time and testing to get better at, ive built hundreds of decks over my 10 years of magic and i still have room for improvement, so don't lose hope!
as far as wincons, yes, you need more than just BloodBond and tokens.
as far as token combo, im pretty sure you can get lethal damage using Blood Artist to combo with Ashnod's Altar and Nim Deathmantle to get infinite damage/life, because you sac a vamp+ a vamp token to altar for 4, use the 4 to activate deathmantle on the nontoken vampire, triggering blood artist infinitely, add Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos and it also forces opponents to sacrifice an infinite amount of creatures, or you add Mana Echoes for infinite colorless mana!
combos like this are made MUCH easier with Anointed Procession, since it doubles your token production
sadly not a lot of vampires are combo-friendly cards, so you're going to want to run a lot of tutors, creature protection and noncreature combos alongside the trusty vampire armada. the most fitting combo for your deck would definitely be lifesteal, having an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers in play usually wins you the game if you use the mana to cast an Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless, especially with land copying coffers like Vesuva, Thespian's Stage or Mirage Mirror
Magus of the Coffers is alsp a budget friendly version of cabal coffers, and allows you to run 2 of them

This is a cool deck! Vial Smasher is a beast and Thrasios is ridiculous, so the combo is possibly the best 4c partner combo out there, and this one seems fun!
I'm not sure how much in the way of devotion to any one color you have at a time, but Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx might be worth your while too if you manage to keep a decent board presence.
Since you're using a lot of X spells, Rosheen Meanderer is also an obvious if unexciting choice...yeah, she's just a mana dork, but one tailor-made for this deck. You may have better mana producers though, or can find them, so while she is an obvious choice you may end up leaving her out for better ones, especially as she's not a commander and so not always available.
On the subject of mana sources and X spells, Astral Cornucopia is great as a mana rock for this deck - pump all you have into its casting cost for a nice Vial Smasher hit, and then use the results to power more X spells on future turns.
I also second the above recommendation for Seedborn Muse - that will do yeoman duty for your deck, especially paired with the Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation you have. That way Vial Smasher can trigger not just on every one of your turns, but everyone else's too!

You might want to take out Cabal Coffers considering you only have 3 swamps in the whole deck.Some good cards you could use are things like Cryptolith Rite, Champion of Lambholt, Abzan Falconer, Mikaeus, the Lunarch, Spike Weaver, Verdant Force, and Inspiring Call.
