Call to the Netherworld Discussion

When exploiting the discard mechanic of your commander don't forget Madness Call to the Netherworld turns that disard into a free recursion to hand effect instead Grave Scrabbler costs you 1B for the same effect but does give you a body for it too. Obsessive Search turns the discard into a draw for one blue.

This is a cool subject and angle to work from. My immediate thoughts took a direction with Call to the Netherworld / Grave Scrabbler (maybe Unearth ) for extra value and Foul-Tongue Shriek / Gruesome Fate for a 'get-around' in a tight spot. Time to get brewing I think!

No trouble!

Personally, I don't like the rate on Banewhip Punisher , Oathsworn Vampire (It's just really bad Bloodghast ), Sadistic Skymarcher , Tragic Poet , Foul-Tongue Shriek , Chalice of Life  Flip, Fountain of Renewal , Bishop of the Bloodstained (Anthems and Sanctum Seeker will just be a lot more damage over the course of a game), Ravenous Chupacabra , Profane Procession  Flip, or Underworld Connections . They're all just very low impact in a 40-life, 4-player format, with the exception of the last two. Profane Procession  Flip is just so much more expensive than something like Rise of the Dark Realms , and while you're not the first person I've talked to who seems to think Underworld Connections is an acceptable substitute for Phyrexian Arena , man is it ever worse.

I don't like the rate on Call the Bloodline , either, unless you want to go deeper on a Madness or Reanimator theme, which could work, since you might want Voldaren Pariah  Flip, anyway. If you did that, Call to the Netherworld gets back Elenda, Big Game Hunter is a nice replacement for Banewhip Punisher , Bishop of Rebirth could be decent, and bigger vamps like Nirkana Revenant , Patron of the Vein , Necropolis Regent , Guul Draz Overseer , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , and Butcher of Malakir become much more attractive. That would require a lot of changes, though. You could keep Profane Procession  Flip and get a lot more out of Crypt of Agadeem that way, though, so maybe don't rule it out.

Some other suggestions:

MAIN DECK:

IF YOU RUN IT IN LEGACY INSTEAD OF MODERN:

  • Putrid Imp (I'm in love with this card, even in decks other than Madness; unlimited manaless discard ability is seriously OP; with this in play you can just pay Madness costs on every spell - adding him would significantly change the value of quite a few cards should you concentrate on only paying Madness costs for no additional cost to discard.)

SIDEBOARD:

If you're planning on going heavy on non-vampires, but want to turn them into vampires for synergies, consider running Conspiracy.

Since you're going to be discarding cards, consider a couple cards with Madness. Call to the Netherworld seems particularly solid, as it will hit a large number of your creatures and can be easily cast even if you are not using its Madness cost.

Otherwise, I'd stack your deck full of the numerous vampire lords that exist. Vampire Nocturnus is a pretty strong card, depending on how much Red you have in your deck.

Bloodline Keeper  Flip creates tokens that also get haste and +1/+1 counters.

Red/Black has some great removal, such as Terminate, Dreadbore, and any of the black kill spells (Fatal Push, Doom Blade, Victim of Night, Go for the Throat, Murder, etc.). Rakdos Charm is targeted removal for artifacts and graveyard decks.

Vanquisher's Banner is a pretty solid card, granting both a tribal bonus and card draw.

Hope some of that helps!

I really like Vengevine in Hollow One decks, probably as a replacement for Call to the Netherworld and Tombstalker.
