I would try to add some more red cards personally to have a more even mana spread as you don't want to ever be locked out of any cards unless you want to only splash red (although red has lots of good cards such as seen below)

Creatures - Captivating Vampire , Tajic, Legion's Edge , Taurean Mauler , Solemn Simulacrum , Divinity of Pride

The Lieges - Balefire Liege , Deathbringer Liege , Ashenmoor Liege

Opponent Creatures ETB Tapped - Authority of the Consuls or Urabrask the Hidden

Removal & Instants - Terminate , Wear / Tear , Vandalblast , Wild Ricochet , Pyroblast

Tutors - Diabolic Tutor , Diabolic Revelation

Boardwipes - Life's Finale , In Garruk's Wake , Decree of Pain

THE WITTLE - Purphoros, God of the Forge

Enchantments - Warstorm Surge , Dictate of the Twin Gods , Curse of Bloodletting , Anger , Impact Tremors , Outpost Siege , Fervor , GREAT CARD FOR YOU Shared Animosity ,

Equips - Any of the swords but Sword of Feast and Famine & Sword of Light and Shadow in particular

Hey if you want consistency with this deck better increase your cards 3s and 4s here. A deck with just one-ofs of random cards isn't gonna get you anywhere my man. I got some cards w/ number of copies you could work around with:

4x Legion Lieutenant ; 4x Vicious Conquistador ; 3x Indulgent Aristocrat ; 4x Concealed Courtyard ; 4x Bump in the Night ; 4x Thoughtseize ; 3x Martyr of Sands ; 3x Captivating Vampire ; 4x Skymarcher Aspirant ; 3x Yahenni, Undying Partisan .

Cheers!

luther - I like that one.. I think the issue might be getting 7 (or 6) changelings in play. That was one of my worries with Captivating Vampire , there just arent enough changelings.

I am going to put it in my side board though for now. Will need to test play this a little and see how many board wipes my friends throw out.

Honest feedback for competitive : I feel like your deck is too slow, and has two kind of conflicting ideas that kind of don't synergize well. The deck is also lacking any form of removal at all which in modern is usually a bad sign - sometimes you NEED to remove your opponents stuff even if your deck is aggressive (tbh, yours isnt aggressive)

Theme 1 seems to be vampires- unfortunately though the focus seems to be off of a mono-b or b/r tribal vampire deck, and we aren't running any one drops so creature-based aggro isn't really possible as we are guaranteed to be behind on turn 1 with our best and only play being Vicious Rumors which we only have in our opening hand 40% of the time. When we do have it, its super underwhelming as there are a bunch of better options that you get to pick the card they are discarding ( Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek ). I recommend if you want to go the vampire route to look up other vampire tribal aggro lists and try to copy their curve and best low cost creatures. In modern as high of a 4 CMC of 2.65 is usually reserved for slower control decks, as an aggro deck you want to get on the board as fast as possible.

Theme 2 is the main theme, which is making our opponent discard cards to make them take damage with Liliana's Caress , but that card only has a 40% chance of being in our opening hand as well. The best option for this style of strategy would probably be an 8-rack deck based around Shrieking Affliction and The Rack , as it's more likely to draw either of these win conditions as well as the damage is higher. Although those decks are very expensive and will not make you popular, i personally find them fun. They are very fast and control your opponents hand very firmly, the problem I have with yours is by turn 3 control decks can prevent you from forcing discards, or they can simply discard something they dont need and keep their best cards, which Thoughtseize can help stop, or they can simply remove Liliana's Caress by then too.

I recommend going either one of those directions with the deck if you mean to make it competitive. If not, its totally fine as a casual deck, no worries. I can recommend some cheap cards you might want to look into though:

Vampire Cutthroat Vampire Lacerator Gifted Aetherborn Vampire Nocturnus Captivating Vampire Fatal Push Murder Victim of Night Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx Metallic Mimic

a singleton of Captivating Vampire could be fun in here. make your infinite vampires, tap what you need to to clear the board, and swing in unblocked. probably a win more move, but still. fun.

I would change Geth's Verdict with other removals like Fatal Push Tragic Slip because with Geth's verdict you dont choose which creature dies (if there are more than 1). Or Go for the Throat there are many options.

Also , Captivating Vampire is quite good , maybe replacing some Bloodline keepers will make the deck faster . And add one more Nocturnus. Vampire Hexmage is a good sideboard card , it can destroy planeswalkers removing their counters or disrupt other cards

i suggest Vicious Conquistador , Guul Draz Vampire as aggro creatures too. if u need another lord, to maybe reduce the Nocturnus slots too there' s Captivating Vampire . Sanctum Seeker could be a nice option too.
