Dear MstrCpr,

Thank you for the suggestions. I could see Captivating Vampire, I have two of those and I like getting more boosters. Vampire Nocturnus, like you said, is only if the budget is there for it. The deck would also have to be retooled to be more black-centric, right now it stands at 13 black cards, which neutralizes its effectiveness.
I do really like Terminate though, I'll have to pick some of those up. Thanks for the suggestions, and the video! I might switch out the Vicious Conquistador for Indulgent Aristocrat, as that video has.

Interesting list, some solid cards. MTGGoldfish actually did a budget deck and some videos on a Mardu Vampire deck, you should check them out too: Specifically from their list Captivating Vampire is a very good lord, along with Vampire Nocturnus if your budget allows for it. Also Terminate as one of the best removals in the color.

Personally, to start, you’ll want to drop out Blood Artist, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, and the Bloodline Keeper  Flip. After taking these out, you can look at some decent 1/3/4 drops for a Rakdos vampire deck. These include; Falkenrath Gorger, Vampire Lacerator, Captivating Vampire, and Vampire Nocturnus. All of these will prove to increase the power in your creature section. For your manabase, all I can say is it appears that you are budgeting it right now. If you get the time or money, try out maybe Blood Crypt. You already have the right idea with the Foreboding Ruins. And lastly, removal in a Rakdos deck is key. Personally, I’d swap out those Terminate’s with Dreadbores, and maybe the Lightning Bolts out for something like Fatal Push. I will admit, however, that your current brew looks very similar to my first brew. So I will say now, you are definitely on the right track. P.S. try swapping out Vampire Nighthawk with some Bloodghasts.

I feel like a better use of white is Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle.

The fact is, between Legion Lieutenant, Stromkirk Captain and Captivating Vampire you're looking at getting a huge buff to your boardstate. You only need to swing with one guy to get the token. This means it saves your Mana for other uses later on.

Also, one of my favorite Sorins is Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. He grows your tribal board and his ult is super powerful.

Think of it this way; Against low creature decks, he gives you board advantage. Against tempo creature decks, he keeps you on par with blockers. And against heavy sets he let's you pick and choose their best for yourself. Alongside Captivating Vampire, he feeds tokens into your 5-tap control mechanic and later on just straight up steals them.

Changes I would suggest:

Remove: - 2x Disenchant - 1x Sphere of Safety

Upgrade: - 1x Bishop of the Bloodstained - 1x Elenda, the Dusk Rose + 2x Malakir Bloodwitch

Things to consider for replacing Walk the Plank: + Feast of Blood + Urge to Feed + Ultimate Price + Cast Down + Doom Blade + Fatal Push + Go for the Throat + Orzhov Charm + Smother + Terror + maybe others

Suggestions: + Captivating Vampire + Brave the Elements

Btw in case you wanted to know about non-blue counter spells lol -> Mana Tithe Would not recommend this but just wanted to show you.

If you're looking at longer games, Dovin Baan's -7 is a great tap-down effect, but it'll take quite a while to get there. However with most EDH games lasting a while, he might be worth at the very least Sideboarding.

Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage might also be worth considering depending on just how you tap down things. If you're using creatures with tap abilities, you can +1 them and go for a second activation if you have the mana or whatever. For example, you can tap all Wizards you run with Azami, Lady of Scrolls to draw a stupid amount of cards, +1 them all to untap, and do it again. Otherwise, Jace let's you draw on another +1 and gets you control of enemy creatures. I run him in an Esper Superfriends deck along side Sorin, Lord of Innistrad that uses Captivating Vampire and that combo is just brutal.

I'm not sure about other combinations. I was originally going to suggest Venser, the Sojourner but I saw you already had him, which is why I started to look at other walkers instead.

Captivating Vampire, and Vanquisher's Banner are legit adds.
