Concealed Courtyard Discussion

I would cut out your current creatures. The only creatures worth consideration in your colors after rotation are the gearhulks, then i'm sure Ixalan will have something.
Other than that though I suggest to just wait and see what is on the way for Ixalan.

Well, you can remove Fatal Push and use something like Dead Weight as that's the poor man's Fatal Push. Most of what you can remove with Push, Dead Weight can probably hit as well. You can remove Rhonas the Indomitable and Gideon of the Trials pretty easily and replace them with really anything you like that fits the scheme. I used to just run 4 copies of God-Pharaoh's Faithful in their place because you can drop your counters from Channeler Initiate or Exemplar of Strength. You can add Crocodile of the Crossing in as well.
The majority of the cost comes from Concealed Courtyard and Blooming Marsh which can be replaced with Foul Orchard or Forsaken Sanctuary if you want super budget, but they won't be anywhere near as good. Good lands are some of the first things I would recommend buying in a format, especially since these ones won't rotate until the end of 2018. Both of the lands are also used quite frequently in Modern, so they're a two for one.
You could also probably go down a few Solemnity if you wanted, but I wouldn't recommend that at all. They're pretty cheap as is.

Hey there, I see your interested in building vampires too. I started doing up a list with all of my changes included, and this is what I have come up with so far:
There's just so many cards I wanted to cram into this thing and that is why it's currently about 5-6 cards over the limit, but this should still give you some ideas as to what to do with yours as well. Any feedback is appreciated on my own version!
Commander / EDH*
1 VIEW | IN 1 FOLDER
I'm currently leaning towards edgar markov as my commander although Licia, sanguine tribune I do admit looks like fun too.
Anyways the first thing I would start with here for your deck is improving the mana base a bit and taking out things like Orzhov Guildgate and swapping them for things like Godless Shrine, Shambling Vent, Concealed Courtyard, and what not. Same goes for the Urborg Volcano swapping for Blood Crypt and or Smoldering Marsh, and Foreboding Ruins. Some other lands to consider adding if you want to pay more on this deck include; Cabal Coffers & Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, fetchlands such as Marsh Flats, Arid Mesa, and Bloodstained Mire.
Additionally i'm sticking with the life subtheme, and strengthening it actually a bit by adding Exquisite Blood once I acquire one, Debt to the Deathless and or Exsanguinate, Aetherflux Reservoir, Felidar Guardian, and Alhammarret's Archive. Also while not being a vampire Rhox Faithmender could help even more with this kind of strategy, and you can get around them not being a vampire by running cards like Mephidross Vampire and Conspiracy.
Others to get for this are Bloodline Keeper, Necropolis Regent, Kalastria Highborn, Nirkana Revenant if you can afford it which would work great alongside previously mentioned Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cabal Coffers and furthermore Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers etc.
I'm also likely using Anointed Procession in my deck, as I can't resist wanting to try that out alongside edgar markov's eminence ability, and other effects from Bloodline Keeper and Call the Bloodline. Then likewise I will be including cards that care about having a lot of creatures out preferably. So I will have Westvale Abbey Flip, and things like Stensia Banquet, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and possibly some other cards such as Vampiric Fury.
But I think I have written enough already and better come to an end, I do hope anyways some of this is of help to you!

Looks pretty similar to the old standard B/W control deck. If you want to make some upgrades to fit the modern format I would lean your removal more towards Fatal Push and Path to Exile instead of Grasp and Ruinous Path. I think it is a pretty creature heavy deck to have sweepers like Languish but if you do want sweepers and cant afford Damnation then you could play Wrath of God which will nab some of the bigger creatures like Reality Smasher. If Duress and Transgress can be upgraded to Inquisition of Kozilek that would be great too. Concealed Courtyard is a fairly cheap way to upgrade the mana base as well. Overall I think its unique to the control decks in modern and is a fun place to start, it just needs a modern makeover to make it a little more on par with some of the decks you are going to run into.
If I were to make non-budget suggestions:
Archangel of Tithes cant be searched up so maybe Linvala, Keeper of Silence instead

28 lands seems too high, cut some of these. Cut trial of ambition and run Doomfall over it. Run 4 Anointed Procession, it's good with all the tokens your making. Run Concealed Courtyard and probably a 2 of Cradle of the Accursed, along with your playset of Aether Hub. Also run a playset of Evolving Wilds for revolt shenanigans, this leaves you with 10 basics for a list with 24 lands. Run a playset of Fatal Push, they're too good in this deck not to run. Cut 2 Cast Out, you probably won't need these two extra with the playset of push. Cut the Bone Pickers, they don't do enough to win the game for you. Run 2 Master Trinketeers, they make sac fodder and pump all your servo's. Add 2 Adorned Pouncers, they are early game sac fodder that can block x/1's for days then come back as a win con. In the sideboard I'd run 3 Sunscourge Champion, go down to 2 of each of the defeats, add 2 Doomfall, cut 2 Lay Bare the Heart, run 2 Dispossess and 2 Never//Return.

ZackBinks created a new primer that is more up to date, but I don't believe that one is currently active either. I haven't seen as many people playing it online or irl either, but that said I don't think the deck is dramatically weaker that it used to be or anything. Just a bit less popular. We've even got some new toys recently- Concealed Courtyard, Fatal Push, Start / Finish, and others.
On that note, what does everyone think about including a singleton Shefet Dunes? Seems like it could be a reasonable way to push out some extra damage without really stretching the manabase.
