Cliffhaven Vampire Discussion

Exquisite Blood, because you're running Sanguine Bond. Cliffhaven Vampire, Vizkopa Guildmage, and maybe Blood Seeker, because your opponents should also be losing life as you gain it or when they do anything really. Extort helps here too. And maybe Tymna the Weaver or some Read the Bones / Sign in Blood style cards to get you drawing cards with little downside because of how much life you're gaining.

KylerStar Thank you! I definitely plan on adding shock/fetch lands eventually. Thats a good call on Drana's Emissary -- I think swapping her with Cliffhaven Vampire makes a lot more sense, especially since I'm adding Exquisite Blood for those infinite combos. I'm taking out Gleam of Battle too and replacing it with Shared Animosity.

I would suggest the obvious suit of shock and fetch lands. I absolutely love the idea of Drana's Emissary, but it usually gets cut from most of my decks. I would definitely suggest Cliffhaven Vampire which ends up doing more work and infinitely combos with Exquisite Blood. Which I would suggest as well for Exquisite Blood infinitely combos with Sanguine Bond. Would also suggest Whip of Erebos or Vault of the Archangel. Possibly Attrition. I have to suggest Crib Swap as removal that nets you a vampire(For this is technically a vampire spell). Blades of Velis Vel, Nameless Inversion, and Shields of Velis Vel are worth mentioning, though maybe not needed, on the same token.

Throw in a Cliffhaven Vampire for more life gain
3 days ago
Yes, I would like to compare notes with anybody who plays this format (not many people in my area do). I have built the following decks so far:
Drooling Groodion: Voltron/control deck that uses some recursion elements to repeat effects such as Crypt Rats, Nantuko Vigilante, and Dimir House Guard. Bascially, you generate a lot of tokens with cards like Sporoloth Ancient and Sprout Swarm, which you then sacrifice into the commander's ability. Actually surprisingly strong, because it allows repeated removal (which is great in this format, since most wins are creature based) and boosts itself at the same time.
Thunderclap Wyvern: Beatdown/control. Plaxcaster Frogling: Beatdown/control. Gelectrode: Control/Combo. Mesa Enchantress: Beatdown/control. Cliffhaven Vampire: Lifedrain. Contraband Kingpin: Artifact control. Stromkirk Captain: Vampire tribal.Drogskol Captain: Spirit tribal. Unraveling Mummy: Zombie tribal.
Currently thinking about Ruthless Sniper as monoblack cycle commander.

Drana's Emissary meh (decent in Karlov though)
Blood-Cursed Knight really meh
Blood Baron of Vizkopa not too shabby
Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter CMC is a bit steep.
+3 different Sorin PW
So aside from a few vampires, Sorin (v2.0, 3.0, and 4.0), adds a major life gain aspect to the deck as well as tokens. Although cheap, Test of Endurance or Felidar Sovereign become possible wincons. Though if lifegain was what you were wanting you really wouldn't need the addition of .
