I think you need more targets for Sunforger to be good or you may need to cut it. Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Chaos Warp, and Wear to name a few.

Erie Interlude doesn't seem that great in a token deck since blinking permanently removes them.

FYI Alesha cannot be in you deck because she is technically a Mardu creature. Because of the activation cost , she is actually a creature. This is not to be confused with something like Blind Obedience who's cost to extort is actually reminder text and not an actual activation or triggered cost, meaning it can be played in non black decks. Hope this was not too confusing. Happy Brewing!

Crystalline Crawler goes infinite with Cathars' Crusade and Marath. Just saw the combo online somewhere. :)

I think Bloodsworn Steward is almost redundant because Daddy Edgar already has haste. The +2/+2 is nice, but you can already get beefed up by a lot of other creatures like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Necropolis Regent and Stromkirk Captain plus other cards like Cathars' Crusade, Door of Destinies and Vanquisher's Banner. I would say add more haste enablers like Hanweir Battlements, Hall of the Bandit Lord and/or Olivia's Bloodsworn. If you need more draw, Id suggest Tymna the Weaver even if she isnt a vamp.

I think you could cut glacial chasm and ice floe

Maybe add Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip

Revoke Existence/Fate Forgotten could be Forsake the Worldly or Return to Dust. I think the instant speed is worth the extra mana

cut distress, single card discard in commander is hard to use effectivly. If you want this type of effect add Sadistic Hypnotist.

maybe cut Feast of Blood for another instant speed kill spell like Path to Exile or Murderous Cut

maybe cut Mardu Banner for Mind Stone or Hedron Archive.

swap Mortify/Unmake for Anguished Unmaking or Utter End

Cut Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet for being to expensive and not inpacting the board fast enough.

Add some sweet sweet card draw like, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Painful Truths, Phyrexian Arena.

Add some recurision like Phyrexian Reclamation, Sun Titan (maybe), Bishop of Rebirth (Definitly!)

Add some pump effects like Shared Animosity, Cathars' Crusade,

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good, maybe find a spot for him over Mathas, Fiend Seeker maybe?

Well that's a lot of suggestions, if you'd like to debate any of them I'd be more than happy to!

Good luck spreading vampirism!

Thanks for the suggestions, Newtypezx!

I like both of them.

Hour of Promise lets me search for Strip Mine and Tectonic Edge which is something that I always appreciate in my metagame. But for simple ramping it costs 1 mana more than Skyshroud Claim or Hunting Wilds.

Mirari's Wake ramps really big the turn after you play it and also increases the trigger of Gishath, Sun's Avatar.

The problem is that there's already much ramp in this deck and that, in my opinion, those 5 mana spells compete with other really good ramp spells in the 4 mana slot (Garruk Wildspeaker, Oracle of Mul Daya). Maybe Explosive Vegetation gets cut for one of your suggestions. I might also cut one of the hymn-like effects (Cathars' Crusade, Coat of Arms) for Mirari's Wake as a kind of compromise.

These options are all close together and I will have to do a lot of playtesting until I find the optimal ramp package.

Thanks for the suggestions, SaifurCommander!

I'll include Berserkers' Onslaught, so that my dinosaurs can hit even harder. But I can't take out Duelist's Heritage because it has this cool political aspect and costs only three mana. Maybe I'll just take out another vanilla dino.

Door of Destinies might need a little too much effort until it pays off but Coat of Arms is truly powerful. After some testing I'll have to decide between Beastmaster Ascension, Cathars' Crusade and Coat of Arms which one to cut.

Thanks for the suggestions, brandonsperry25!

I'll definitely add Cathars' Crusade and Beastmaster Ascension and start some goldfishing.

But I'm not sure about Darksteel Plate because the interaction with Raptor Hatchling is a corner case and the card may not be necessary in most other situations (you can still trigger most enrage abilities without the dinosaurs dying). Might try it if the deck prooves to have too much trouble with mass removals

WOO! DINOSAURS! Really digging what you've done. Thanks for the comment on my page as well.

Have you considered Beastmaster Ascension? I'll suggest Cathars' Crusade to you as well. You've already seen that the main goal is to make Gishath, Sun's Avatar bigger each time a dino comes in for more dinos on your next attack. I'd also recommend Darksteel Plate for your Raptor Hatchling, Ranging Raptors or any other enrage dino. May seem like a tiny inclusion for one trigger, but I like it in combination with effects like Pyrohemia or any of the other ping spells out there. Trading for a 3/3 dinosaur is pretty awesome in my book.

I look forward to any updates you may have, and thanks again for the comment!
