Dark Impostor Discussion

Dark Impostor is really expensive for what it does, although it's nice if you can pull it off a few times. Shrieking Mogg is a really nice card here, actually, as if you bring it back with Alesha you're already tapped and attacking, nice!

The rest of the additions looks good!

Hey! I think this deck looks fun! My favorite thing to do in black is sac.

I think that you could make good use of an Ashnod's Altar. It's nice to dump into an Exsanguinate, Tenacious Dead and Reassembling Skeleton can be sac'd as many times as you have , Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief and Dark Impostor make great use of the ability with pacts out.

I think that Yahenni, Undying Partisan is a perfect fit in this deck as well. Things die and (s)he can sac them.

Fallen Ideal kicks a lot of butt, and ends the game with a pact. Not to mention it recurs itself.

Deck looks good! +1!

Vampires are my my favorite tribe, I made my own with Anowon, the Ruin Sage.

I really don't like Baron Sengir, he costs way to much and you have to wait a turn until you can regenerate something. Some great replacements would be Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief, Dark Impostor, or Drana, Liberator of Malakir.

Replace Furor of the Bitten with Stensia Masquerade for flavorful buffs for your whole team. Rogue's Passage is always a great land to help with your bloodthirst cards or other cards like Markov Blademaster.

Replace Gravedigger with Palace Siege to get a vampire back every turn.

Malakir Bloodwitch can be used as a finisher, Voldaren Pariah  Flip is good removal, Dark Impostor is always fun to play, and Drana's Emissary is great for regular draining

To be honest, you are not playing control per se, but, more of a group-slug variant. Run more rattlesnake effects! Where is your False Prophet and your Koskun Falls? Hell, I might have been running Bearer of the Heavens (not likely without Eerie Interlude) next to my Orzhov Advokist (definite inclusion)! :p

Why are you running Caltrops instead of Lightmine Field? Instead of Cauldron Haze include the Cauldron of Souls itself :p

A Royal Assassin is more handy than a Dark Impostor when you don't want to keep 6 mana open every turn. He also doesn't grow bigger with every activation but he always threats a kill at instant speed if something dares to attack you without being vigilant :p

I would also consider the double damage enchantments to be removed as well, as they work against you as much as they do for you. Use the Curse of Bloodletting to incentivise people in more direct way. The dictate is good though because of flash...

Your maybeboard has some real gems! Especially fond of Martyr's Bond!

Also a Sunforger with 3 targets only is a very sad Sunforger... It's meant to be the answer-stick! Get that Chaos Warp, Oblation, Terminate, Mortify, Return to Dust, Into the Core, Retaliate, Wild Ricochet, Utter End and Anguished Unmaking... maybe even a Master Warcraft? That, or remove Sunforger since it won't be doing much for you as a +4/+0 buff.

Warxuaroz took out Dark Impostor for Godsend, I don't know if it's just me but I feel like 6 CMC to exile is a lot, when I have other ways of removing permanents for cheaper.

Anowon is my other favorite Vampire commander! I would definitely advocate for the inclusion of Falkenrath Noble and Dark Impostor. I don't think you have enough non-Vampires to really warrant Conspiracy, even though it is really cool.

I've found Eldrazi Monument to be more effective when I have creatures that I am fine sacing (such as with a token generator, like Ant Queen). Have you found it to be a successful fit with the deck? Additionally, without a way to truly abuse it, I'd consider replacing Pariah's Shield.

Have you considered swapping one of your mass board wipes to some more targeted options? If so, Ashes to Ashes and Snuff Out are pretty sweet. Also, untapping Cabal Coffers with Deserted Temple is awesome. Finally, you may benefit from just a touch more card draw. While Necropotence is king, Read the Bones, Sign in Blood and Ambition's Cost are all good choices.

Overall, looks sweet! Have fun murdering your opponents!
