Immolating Souleater is the wincon now. Pairs nicely with Children of Korlis too. Spend almost all your health to buff him and then get it back with the children.

Children of Korlis could be kind of dope in here especially the children with aetherflux Reservoir. Dome sacrifice the children Dome again.

Archangel of thune is a really good car to use with Spike Feeder I also suggest using Aetherflux Reservoir as a win condition.

Speaking of reservoir Children of Korlis is a great card to use with the reservoir you can pay 50 life to deal 50 sacrifice the children to gain that life back to do it again

Hey there!

I'm going to preface my comment with what I always do: This is all positive criticism, and I don't want you to take anything the wrong way, I'm just giving you the comments I would take myself.

I love the idea, and having ways to gain life, alone, makes it difficult for aggro/burn decks to quickly take care of you. That being said, your deck is 1) too slow. 12 of your creatures die to a 2/2 with no keywords. If they bring out a 5/5 with trample, you lose. Period. You need creatures that work for you in a vacuum. A Vampire deck is a great idea for Drainin' Em :), you can run your deck around Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle + Sanctum Seeker. Legion Lieutenant can help boost your army, and Lingering Souls are an extremely efficient and low costing way to keep you alive early game to aggro/burn decks. Vicious Conquistador is a really good 1 drop. 2 defense and having them lose one life upon attacking is so strong, especially when boosted by the aforementioned creatures. With the new creatures, I'd remove Drana's Emissary + Cliffhaven Vampire in a heartbeat. Slow, inefficient, and do nothing for you. Speed up the tempo here is key, so you give yourself a chance to win.

2) The deck needs removal. Again, if they have a 5/5 with trample, the game's over. If you had something like Doom Blade, or Mortify, or Oblivion Ring, or Unmake, you'd be in much better shape. All are great choices.

3) There are a few cards I am not a huge fan of. Campaign of Vengeance costs you 5 mana and does you pretty much nothing. What if you're not in a position to attack? What if you only have 3 creatures out? It's just not great until many more turns in, and at that point, you've either lost, or won. I'd prefer you put in a big creature, or add removal. Trespasser's Curse doesn't do you too much either. If they're running aggro, you're toast anyway. 1 life per creature makes 0 difference. If they're running control, it won't do you anything all game long. Children of Korlis is poor at all points in the game other than turn one. Late game, it's a dead draw, and they'll wipe you to 0 before his ability gains you life, and outside of turn 1, he's a chump blocker to anything more than a 1/1. Alternatives include -> Duskborne Skymarcher has flying, Indulgent Aristocrat has lifelink and can boost other Vampires, Vicious Conquistador has big defense and a nice ability to boot.

I know I ripped your deck apart, but I really like the idea, and lifelink is a really great mechanic you can work with to make a quality deck. Best of Luck!

Children of Korlis to work with your aetherflux Reservoir so you can Dome somebody for 50.

sack the children and do it again add E witness to this and you should be able to take out three people.

If you want to take this to modern, what you probably need is Tamanoa and Children of Korlis. I wouldn't play any other creatures if you're also running Repercussion, but their effects are what you're really needing. You've got to last long enough to stick both enchantments, and then survive hitting yourself to win.

If nothing else EDH has a place for everything.

Children of Korlis is a great card to work with Aetherflux Reservoir allowing you to use it twice a turn.

Adding Eternal Witness to the combo would allow you to at least use it three times a turn provided you have 2 Green Mana one white Mana and a colorless Mana.
