Hey, very good upgrade of the precon. You don't really need to change anything for this deck to be a winner. However this deck is not aggro, it's midrange since it has 24 cards 4 CMC or higher. That's too many if you want to play aggro Vamps. Something to consider for aggro is cutting some high CMC Vamps/cards for more low CMC Vamps/cards and replacing some lands that can ETB tapped with ones that don't.

Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Aoi97 Cunning Evasion is too low impact. If you are having a hard time getting your creatures through, consider running something that makes your creatures unblockable like Cover of Darkness?

What do you think about Cover of Darkness for Iroas, God of Victory? Sure "menace" can be better than "fear" in some cases, but CoD cost half as Iroas and you don't really need the damage prevention if your creatures can't be blocked :)

Obelisk of Urd is a very strong card in a Edgar deck, if you get it out very early (what is not that big of the deal). This card shut down games very quick.

MahBoi100 thank you! I completely didn't see this and it is definitely going in the deck. There are a few other cards I plan on adding, Herald's Horn, Phyrexian Arena, Oversold Cemetery and Cover of Darkness. Also Cryptic Gateway.

I'll definitely be checking your list out as well

Yo sam171z, so I took a quick take on your decklist. In the general sense, how competitive/tuned do you want your list to go to?

Like in all deck building, what theme do you want to go for and how much of a budget are you willing to spend to get the results? For Grixis decks they rely essentially on a lot of rocks to get you to accelerate faster.

Here are some cards that I use that are staples in competitive deck building in Grixis colors. Feel free to ask for more specifics on how ya wanna deck build, huge advocate on helping people tune their list to their own sense of style on what you want to do.

Some cards that are tribal-esque:

In regards to your question on how I would build the deck, hmm I would probably go more towards a control/steal theme with maybe a small bit of reanimator package. There is quite a bit of things you can do, there are some combos you can run that would mesh well with the pirate theme. Like both Dockside Extortionist and Cloudstone Curio can net you infinite mana (provided your opponents have enough artifacts/enchantments to negate the cost of recasting) or you can do some synergies with Glint-Horn Buccaneer and Curiosity combo which can be fun. But that's how I would build it, feel free to ask if ya have any more questions~

I’d cut for those myself Dire Undercurrents for me it’s to wide Cover of Darkness faeries are already evasive with flying Coat of Arms or All That Glitters for me it’s go wide or tall

Makes sense, I have been working on my deck for a while. The mana base is still very clunky, but its slowly clearing up. I am going to try to slot in Wonder to see if it makes a difference. Right now I am running Cover of Darkness for evasion but its really hit and miss. I find I have problems protecting my CMDR after ninjitsu so I was thinking maybe slotting in Kira, Great Glass-Spinner for protection.
