Look at the top six cards of your library. Put up to two creature cards with converted mana cost 3 or less from among them onto the battlefield. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order.

Collected Company Discussion

Hi, I've put together a bunch of vampire lists. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of modern mono-black cards. First up, Blade of the Bloodchief. It makes lifelink into a game-stalling certainty. With decent creatures that you don't want in the 'yard Indulgent Aristocrat beats Viscera Seer for providing more lifelink and some pump. Vampire Envoy isn't great as a card- 1 or 2 drop removal is more practical, and Pawn of Ulamog a more flavourful option. Similarly, with all those little creatures with keywords Lashwrithe can do good stuff. Ratchet Bomb is a slow answer to many modern threats black can't answer and ends tokens,and so practical sideboard. I'll reccomend Imp's Mischief as combo and boggle disruption. Disfigure is a lot more practical than gut shot for defence, and Bump in the Night when attacking. Temporal Extortion is my preferred endgame- it usually puts out more damage than dropping Vampire Nocturnus even if the choice is your opponents rather than your topdeck. Fetches change that, but whatever. I find Blood Artist usually outperforms Kalastria Highborn, due to not having to keep mana open in a low instant-speed deck.
Long story shory, more lifelink, some card draw, hand disruption, win fnms. Duress is cheap and oh so practical. If in doubt splash green for Asceticism and Collected Company, just to frustrate those that outrange you.

@KingLouis_CLXXII - Cheap Fast Slivers - That's about the best I could do to bring the price down. It changes the deck up quite a lot. If you can fit a couple Collected Company in, it would add a little burst to the deck. It does slow it down a fair bit, as it now relies on mana slivers.

I've had this list kicking around a while Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox- glad to see someone is putting together a primer.
Heartless Summoning enables higher CMC play- especially with a full set of kalitas.
Devour Flesh is a decent sideboard card against burn when running creature aggro, and a good non-lifelink lifegain source.
Diregraf Colossus is a notable zombie card and decent beastick,
Everlasting Torment helps fight through lifegain and thrun.
Mimic Vat plays merry hell with regular tron, and has the added bonus of interacting with an opponents graveyard using a replacement effect- handy for those Kitchen Finks. Nantuko Husk sees fringe play in zombie builds.
Fulminator Mage is a three drop.
Memory Plunder is an insane answer to snapcaster/cryptic, and solid against anything that casts big spells (reversing a living end combo).
Panharmonicon deserves a mention for more midrange black, enabling some insane play on decks that survive casting it.
You should probably seperate out the x cost cards- Killing Wave/Damnable Pact/Profane Command aren't really meant to be cast for low values of x, and people looking for that slot are likely to miss them.
White splash is strong in vampire/control builds for access to Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Tithe Drinker, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad,Sorin, Solemn Visitor and the ubiquitus removal suite. Green also gives important access to Collected Company(where Temporal Extortion isn't good enough) and Lotleth Troll, a mainstay for gravecrawler shenanigans and etb stuff.
Anything else I can think of would be specific cards for specific decks. One thing that always shocks my opponents is the sheer versatility you can pack into a black fifteen card sideboard- something transformative to handle bad matchups (graveyard and tron) really does change the shape of your evening, although decklist knowledge will allow players to play around this when the decklists are available, at any other time you can absolutely change the shape of your game. 'side 15' is a real thing.

But if 50$ is your budget I'm afraid you'll have to do several cuts

This deck is a good start, but generally you want to play more elves and less spells to make Collected Company work better. If I were you, I would cut Elvish Promenade and add 4 copies of Heritage Druid. It is the best mana dork to put in an elf deck because you can tap 3 elves the turn they come in, which leads to some crazy-fast starts. I have played out my entire hand one turn 2 before. I would also run 2-3 copies of Ezuri, Renegade Leader because he usually wins games if you get one turn to untap and attack with him on the board. Also, you should add a playset of Elvish Mystic and cut Joraga Treespeaker. One last thing, Joraga Warcaller is a great card, but if you hit it with Collected Company it is just a vanilla 1/1. If you want to see slightly more tuned version of your deck, check mine out. It is consistent and only costs a bit more than yours. You can save a bit of money too by just running 18 forests. - http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/there-will-be-elves/

Thanks for the suggestions! I totally forgot about Tireless Tracker, and I was planning on reducing my land count, as I found that I am constantly flooded.
While I appreciate the suggestion to go into Abzan, I think at that point, why not add Siege Rhino, and then I jus become Abzan Midrange, which is not the goal. I also don't want to add Atarka's Command, as that adds yet another slot that I can whiff on with Collected Company
