Thank you for the feedback. For what it is right now i looked at all vampire or vampire related cards I had and my collection and threw this together. Thus the bad variety. What I plan on doing is replacing Shadow Alley Denizen and Blood Bairn and Bloodcrazed Neonate for another Stromkirk Captain and 2 Captivating Vampire . Then replacing Falkenrath Noble and Vampire Outcasts with 2 Bloodline Keeper  Flip . Once I get the money to do so. I will also pick up 4 Dragonskull Summit for mana fixing. Much better than gates. Death's Approach does need to go, I just need a replacement. Terminate or Dreadbore ? Absorb Vis was mostly used for landcycling, but is hilarious to kill people with. It can go. Crypt Incursion is for lifegain, it helps a lot in certain games as even exiling two creatures is 6 life. They can be my own and it has saved me at instant speed surprising opponents and giving me an edge or an extra turn to finish the game. March of the Returned is sometimes useful, othertimes not. Thank you so much for the help and feedback.

Demigoron, but, then I will not have any creature destroy! :O

I actually thinks that 4 Dictate of Kruphix is too much! I only need 3 Thoughtseize .... Or else I will loose too much life! :P

So -1 Thoughtseize , -1 Dictate of Kruphix and -1 Death's Approach ?

I'd take out Death's Approach because it's cycling anyway, but if you want to keep it take out a Duress and a Dictate of Kruphix or two.

Okay! I finally got time to make some suggestions! :D

Waste No Whispering Squids! is almost the same deck. I just have:

Death's Approach , Ordeal of Erebos , Duress and 2 more Whispering Madness and Dictate of Kruphix . While you have Brain Maggot , Master of the Feast , Aqueous Form , Liliana Vess and Ultimate Price .

Oh, and I have 1 more Thoughtseize than you have ;D

So.... Where to start.....

I don't understand why you have Brain Maggot . It is good, but it exiles rather than discard. Then it dosn't work with Waste Not . What is your thoughts behind that card?

Ordeal of Erebos is pretty awesome with Chasm Skulker . It's like "Play it, attack, discard". Because it has so many counters on it! :D

Duress was more like a filler card....

I like that you have Master of the Feast , Aqueous Form and Liliana Vess . Master is good. It is really good with Fate Unraveler :D. And you get a 5/5 body!!!

Aqueous Form is sooooo awesome with Chasm Skulker . But, what will happen if you have it, without a Chasm Skulker ? Then it's almost a dead card?

Liliana Vess might be a little to expensive.....? What is your thoughts on her?

Ultimate Price vs Death's Approach .... Which one is better? Maybe even Doom Blade ....?

I actually thinks, that having 3 Thoughtseize is good enough :D

But.... I would really want more Whispering Madness . That card is a BEAST in this deck! When the opponent have like 6 cards in his/her hand (because of Master of the Feast , Dictate of Kruphix etc) it can really be soooo good! :D Thoughts on that card?

Only 2 Dictate of Kruphix ? Hm.... Why? Why not 4?

Yea.... That was all! :D

The deck is a great concept and you have it setup pretty well. I play tested it a few times and did some solo play through rounds to see how often what came up. It's got a solid base and works well. The issue I see is a little too much variety. I found myself with no creatures and a handful of enchant creatures / instants a lot of times. I would suggest focusing on the lifelink and life gain creatures with some support creatures. As far as the sorceries / Instants / Enchantments go I would lose a few of the ones you use the least. Such as, possibly, Crypt Incursion , Absorb Vis , March of the Returned , Death's Approach . With a little refinement this deck will be a hard hitter. +1 for the concept.

Death's Approach may be a good addition, especially since you can use it to remove indestructible creatures like gods. Maybe you could take out Duress ? I think a Doom Blade or two might also be good.

I really like the idea of Thassa, God of the Sea in a mill deck. Thassa is relatively cheap and has a lower devotion cost than Phenax, God of Deception . I've tried playing with Grisly Spectacle ; the mill bonus is useful, but I usually find it too expensive. What do you think of Death's Approach ? I've had pretty good luck with it. Here's my standard mill Phenax, God of Mill [Standard Build]]. Price
