Dark Ritual Discussion
9 hours ago
GoldenDiggle Would you like me to make a list of every ritual (defined as a spell that [directly] nets you mana like Dark Ritual [not "free" spells like Burning-Tree Emissary ]) in the game? I'll do that.

Of course I will berryjon! Thank you for the comment!
A Dark Ritual + is very welcome in the deck!
Smothering Abomination draws me a card for each sac, allowing me to play nonlands.
Mana burn may be dead, but that doesn't mean that you should waste mana!

In rule 100.2a of the comprehensive Magic rulebook, it states that constructed Magic must contain at least 60 cards. Your deck does not comply to this rule. Here are a few suggestions: Elvish Spirit Guide, Dark Ritual, Seething Song, Metallic Mimic (as backup), Counterspell, Island, Force of Will, Pact of Negation

How often do you run into trouble casting Necropotence? While you have 30 black mana sources (counting Moxen and Elves), only Dark Ritual, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Selvala, Heart of the Wilds can produce multiple black mana. So triple black doesn't seem like something you naturally achieve by turn 2 or 3 every game. Maybe i am just plain wrong about that, but i would really like to understand the card's value and reliability a little better.

Dark Ritual isn't modern legal; you'll either need to replace it with something else, or change your deck label.
Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet is too expensive for modern unless you're using ramp, and Dark Ritual is about to get the axe.
Overpowered Vampires to consider:
Gatekeeper of Malakir is a removal package on a Vampire body, and costs too little for his ability. Playset needed.
Since you can't rely on Dark Ritual to explode your creatures into play anymore, you're going to need to think about your curve more. Vampire Cutthroat, Viscera Seer, and Pulse Tracker are all very powerful 1-drop Vampires. I would run 4 Trackers, 4-2 Cutthroats, and 2 Seers.
Captivating Vampire needs to be included as a 4-of. I hate that card so much.
Since you're not running any fetchlands, or cards that care about having a Plains or Swamp, you'll either want to swap Godless Shrines for Isolated Chapels if you want to play more aggressively, or Concealed Courtyards if you're playing midrange.
You can probably survive on twenty lands to maximize topdeck value.

Would definitely recommend adding in some 'pillow forty' cards. No Mercy, Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety are all good candidates. Check out Oversold Cemetery and Tortured Existence too for recurring creature recycling. Ivory Mask can help if you find people are targeting your graveyard. BW has many great enchantments to protect yourself and I would recommend including some more. Academy Rector and Idyllic Tutor can help with consistency, but an enchantment toolbox could help protect what you are doing. Vindicate is less pricey following it's reprint and Utter End is a great card too. Emeria, The Sky Ruin is a great land in reanimator style decks with white, as is Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers. Last but not least, consider Iona, Shield of Emeria, Rune-Scarred Demon, Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Angel of Despair as some great reanimator targets.
Deck seems a little unfocused and I think you could benefit from focusing on the specific theme. Some cards like Dark Ritual and the planeswalkers feel either redundant or not as impactful as you would like. I also think, if you're going reanimator, try running Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter as the general while removing the life gain aspect for cards like Bloodghast and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. The lifegain just seems like a sub-theme.
Just some suggestions, hope that helps!

Dark Ritual is amazing. One of my favorite cards, and yes I'm aware I say that about almost every card I play. Lol
