Viscera Seer for scry on demand, Twilight Prophet for card advantage, with a little extra on the side, and Champion of Dusk for card draw, along with Diabolic Intent + Diabolic Tutor for general tutor. Also Well of Lost Dreams for card draw on life gain.

Bishop of the bloodstained (little value for a one time effect at 5 cmc) - Bloodlord Vaasgoth - Massacre Girl (Hurts you) - Anowon, the Ruin Sage (too Slow) - Tempt with Immortality (There are better graveyard cards than this and its just not good in this deck) - Eldest Reborn (Just no synergy with the deck) - The biggest issue I see if you have a lot of cards that bring stuff back from the graveyard. Vamps nor Edgar care about that truely unless that is just the route you want to go down. The only one I think you keep is Faith's Reward just in response to a board wipe, but its a dead card if someone cyclonic rifts or exiles all creatures. Your deck severely lacks card draw as well. A few vamps I suggest that are just plain good and help with draw.

Keep going with the theme you want but you need card draw to draw the cards you want, and you still want better vamps than some of the ones that are too slow or don’t really help all the vamps and cards in your maybe are amazing, and will lower your CMC too and the cards I listed above I think could also help. Good luck man!

If you're going lifegain, I'd look at Dawn of Hope for some card draw. Champion of Dusk is another way to help there. Anowon, the Ruin Sage is pretty nice for vampire tribal. Anguished Unmaking is almost strictly better than Mortify . And if it's not out of your price range, Luxury Suite comes in handy if you play multiplayer. If you're just doing 1v1 though, it's not that great. Best of luck!

Change Notes:

Out: Phyrexian Arena
In: Champion of Dusk
Even though I like the over-time generated value of Phyrexian Arena , it's really slow. If you play it in turn 8, it will maybe only draw you 2 cards, because the game will maybe end by turn 10. Champion of Dusk on the other hand gives you the opportunity for an explosive turn. Sure, he is quite expensive with 5 mana, but you will at least draw 2 cards because of Edgar Markov 's eminence trigger. And often, you will draw more like 4-6 cards, depending on your current board state.

Out: Door of Destinies
In: Cordial Vampire
Not gonna lie, this one hurts. Because Door of Destinies is a funny tribal support card. But the new Cordial Vampire is just so much better. He costs less mana, he comes in with a token, because of Edgar Markov 's eminence trigger and he can pump the whole board even faster then Door of Destinies . Also, Door of Destinies often felt like it was too slow in the past games I played it. Because you have to cast vampires afterwards, to really make it shine. Cordial Vampire will bring the value and buffs way faster to the table. It even gives you somewhat of protection, because if your enemys attack you and your vampires die blocking, the rest of your army will get even bigger.

Hi Vlasiax,

You run out of gas very fast, because of the low mana curve. Ad Nauseam is a very good refiller and allows you to keep the pressure up after a board wipe for example (same like Bolas's Citadel ). Life is a resource ;)

With Forerunner of the Legion you can tutor for Champion of Dusk to refill your hand or Captivating Vampire for more control on the board, it is a very flexible Card. The Second ability can pump up your vampires for massiv damage. The effect is always doubled because of Edgar Markov .

Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle is a good card if you draw it early. When he hits the field their will be nearly always a other vampire creature on the field to activate the ability right away. More Vampires more fun :D

Cut Oathsworn Vampire for Cruel Celebrant . Don’t see myself recasting oathsworn very often and something had to go.

Cleaned up the manabase. I ran too many colorless utility lands because the deck is primarily black. However this made it too hard to cast Necropotence or cast multiple cards.

Out: Vault of the Archangel , Cavern of Souls

In: 2 basic swamps

I never use vault and am never happy to draw it. Casting cards is always better. Vault has slight value as a threat but is usually no better than Wastes .

Cavern is Command Tower about 2/3 of the time, but it can really cause problems when it counts, which is why I never ran Unclaimed Territory . The uncounterable creatures ability is not very helpful as our vampires are mostly trash and we would still get a token anyway. Some vampires are worth countering but aside from Champion of Dusk I would actually prefer they counter a vampire since that increases the odds of resolving something important later on.

Thoughtseize would be a good addition to this deck. I feel like you need a good turn 1 card for it. Of course cheaper discard like Duress is acceptable too.

Also, I really enjoy a couple of the newer vampires like Twilight Prophet and Champion of Dusk . They will be your card draw engine and win you the game in card advantage alone.
