Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord lets your pull out ANY vampire from your hand to the field on turn 3. It is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING but nevertheless it is a good vampire card. With that I would only recommend adding him if you plan on adding higher mana cost vampire like Nirkana Revenant (also disgusting).

Cordial Vampire is a must have in any Vampire deck. Whenever ANY creature dies ALL your vampires get a +1/+1 counter.

Since it looks like you have a lot of ways to add +1/+1 counters (very much so if you also have cordial vampire) I would recommend one The Ozolith. For one mana you get so much value from it.

Mgalangzingme It has synergies with Cordial Vampire and Vampire Nocturnus considering it can control the top card of the library for the most part.

This can definitely compete, vampires have some pretty good cards

I feel like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Vampire Nocturnus are the bee's knees in a mono black aggro deck. I'd instead cut Sanctum Seeker and Vampire of the Dire Moon to make room.

Instead of Vicious Conquistador and Gifted Aetherborn, what about Bloodghast and Viscera Seer? Between Sorin and seer this gives you a reasonable number of sac outlets to trigger Cordial Vampire and cheat extra power on the board. The scry also helps enable Vampire Nocturnus. Don't forget he can be cheated into play t3 with Sorin too, never underestimate cheating on mana.

The sideboard I'd add Duress over one of the removal spells as additional combo disruption, 3 Thoughtseize main seems ideal though

Mono black has a lot of stuff to work with, as does vamp tribal. With the deathtouch/lifelinkers, P/T boosts are good. I much prefer stuff like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Indulgent Aristocrat or Cordial Vampire in this kind of list, but bad moon will work.

The big advice I have is; plan your sideboard. Knowing that you can hate an entire FNM's meta out just by packing 15 Duress variants in your sideboard is great. Knowing that its a transformative board into Hypnotic Specter control is also great. Some notable options are Imp's Mischief, Whip of Erebos (the recursion is super good), Lashwrithe (build your own wurmcoil) or good old Sign in Blood.

Not too shabby but I do have a few suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category.

Necessities: Reconnaissance (2nd post below entirely for this card), Cordial Vampire, and Purphoros, God of the Forge

Vampire Nocturnus Enablers: Necropotence, Viscera Seer, Diabolic Intent, and the rest of your off color fetches.

Finishers: Mirror Entity and Cover of Darkness. I really don't like Door of Destinies here because it does nothing for your current board and costs a ton of mana for an aggro deck.

Board Protection: Boros Charm and Scapegoat. Scapegoat helps pseudo dodge exile, tuck, -X-X, sac, and other hard to dodge wraths, and it doubles as a finisher with Purphoros out.

Ramp: Talisman of Indulgence, Talisman of Hierarchy, and Fellwar Stone.

Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down, I can help suggest a few cuts beyond Door of Destinies. Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Hey there! Just read your Split Second article, very cool! Cool to see someone with similar thoughts of initially building Elenda as a challenge, but I love the change as it opens up more possibilities too!

I've been looking at ways for new win conditions with the death trigger changes, and aside from the ones you've listed, Elenda, the Dusk Rose can go infinite with Phyrexian Altar + Blade of the Bloodchief, provided she has sufficient counters to start with to offset her commander tax. Similarly the combination of Cordial Vampire + Anointed Procession = Teysa Karlov, which can go infinite with Phyrexian Altar.

Those combos will also work with Ashnod's Altar, but you need to include either Gemstone Array or Mycosynth Lattice, which I don't think is worth the card slot.

PS. Your Haakon, Stromgald Scourge tech is very creative. My deck is vampire rather than knight themed, but now I HAVE to include it when I brew a Syr Gwyn, Hero of Ashvale deck hahaha

Hello, your deck has some potential. Just some advices:

  1. I think you should replace Grasp of Darkness for Dismember, that -1/-1 extra could be truly useful for some tanky creatures. Also, you can distribute those mana as you want. That extra mana/life is worth of being paid.

  2. Victim of Night for something like Hero's Downfall, Fatal Push, Gatekeeper of Malakir, etc.

  3. Cordial Vampire is a must since Modern Horizons was released. You must play it. It doesnt only go well with your removal, it goes well with chomp blocks, or even if you consider that Gatekeeper of Malakir that I mentioned before, It could be truly awesome.

  4. There are some planeswalker that could fit truly well in this deck, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord, you could make some nasty combos like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord + Bloodlord of Vaasgoth at turn 3; Liliana, the Last Hope can help you to get some of your vampires in safe goal, even if you put that Cordial Vampire mentioned before, you could be buffing your vampires meanwhile removing some tiny things, like mana fixers.

  5. Asylum Visitor seems pretty week and have a hard condition in some decks, you could sustitute it for Phyrexian Arena or something annexed to tribal deck.

  6. Some cards like Urge to Feed, Shadow Alley Denizen, Bloodghast, Thoughtseize, Dash Hopes, Collective Brutality, could be some cards interesting to contemplate.

Glad you like it =). This deck is short on 1 drops, though I'm not sure what I would take out to try it. I'm gonna experiment with this a bit and if I don't include it here I'll probably add this to my Vampire deck to set up Oathsworn Vampire (Oathsworn Vampire + Pitiless Plunderer + Bontu's Monument = Infinite counters through Cordial Vampire).
