seshiro_of_the_orochi I LOVE where your mind is at! Chainer, Nightmare Adept is one of my favorite Rakdos commanders and I'd love to build around him, and the extra boost of both white and the support of Elenda, the Dusk Rose would be a ton of fun.

I vote for Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Chainer, Nightmare Adept . Neither of them is particlarly underpowered, but this would be lots of fun. It's similar for Feather, the Redeemed and Lavinia of the Tenth as a flicker deck. Oh, and Fblthp, the Lost and Norin the Wary would be awesome as a deck around cards that target one of your own and one the opponent's creatures.

Hi, thank you for your advices, they're precisely what i needed! First of all i know that the description is rough and approximate, when i'll arrive to 100 cards beeing sure i'll fix it once for all.
Fetid Heath , Phyrexian Tower and Diabolic Intent are surely better, and are in my wishlist for now, but i'm already investing in my Kaalia deck and except for some budget utilities (like Wake the Dead ) i prefer to wait.
Talking about the cutting (that was my biggest problem):
Cathodion is effectively the first card to remove
Pitiless Plunderer and Geist-Honored Monk have both better alternatives ( Pawn of Ulamog and Sengir Autocrat ). The second was in for giving more possibilities to get a Nim's piece of Combo and a Xathrid Necromancer target. But i think you're right and i'll cut both of them.
I think that Felidar-Restoration + Corpse Knight could be a solution if i can't pass from graveyard ( Rest in Peace & co.), but effectively it's less synergical with Teysa and all the deck. So I'll cut them.
Cutting all this i go to 100 with Teysa Karlov and Elenda, the Dusk Rose still inside: the second is not a good token generator neither is useful with his lifelink, maybe adding a Doom Whisperer to going through the deck looking for missing card? The second is a redundant, if i go infinite i don't need it, but don't you think that in a bad moment of the game a double Teysa, Orzhov Scion or Skullclamp or giving lifelink and vigilance to all the generated tokens could be a good topdeck?

Hey Last_Laugh !
Thanks for the comments and suggestion mate!
Lets start with New Blood one of my favourite cards in the deck. I'm having so much fun running this one !! Stealing a Utvara Hellkite did not happen yet but boy oh boy that would be bonkers <:D but the ones i did steal and are worth mentioning are Omnath, Locus of Rage that play was ridiculous because i already had a wide board of vamps including Elenda, the Dusk Rose + Yahenni, Undying Partisan so i just went full out and on the ES i sacced all my vamps to Yahenni ! Every vamp that died triggered Omnath for 3 ping damage and was a fuel for Elenda feeding her with counters and saccing her as last to obtain a wide board again and doing it all over to finish the table off :) Will never forget that one !! A Vampire Blightsteel Colossus is also a game ending steal :P I highly recommend New Blood every vamp deck should run it imo.
Oversold Cemetery & Scapegoat did have a slot in my deck for multiple weeks but most of the time they did not shine the way i thought they would, and a few times those cards were a dead card in hand. Meaning i drawed the Oversold Cemetery early game and had no vamps or to less in my GY to trigger it and at those points that card only slowed me down and that didn't fit my aggro very well :)
Scapegoat is a very nice card ! But instead of removing my board presence back to my hand i rather protect my board with cards like Teferi's Protection , Unbreakable Formation , Boros Charm to finish the game quicker and keeping the threat presence. But in some situations it would be a better card, especially when Purphoros, God of the Forge is present. So it might come back someday ! and I would like to thank you again for your suggestion of Scapegoat you did a few months ago .

Seraph of the Scales seems like a good addition. I have thought about that one or Elenda, the Dusk Rose before. I have won games with Debt to the Deathless before, but I could see cutting it for something else. It may just be a "win more" card, and Seraph is more on theme.
Haha I see what you mean about Generous Gift not matching the aesthetic, but it can remove anything. In my Meta I really need all the removal I can get, since some decks will combo off pretty early if no one removes an important enchantment or something quickly. This deck takes a little bit of set up before it starts going off and I want to make sure I can get there.
Thank you for the input! Good suggestion!

The Deck is kind of slow. Having both played and played against Voltron, the deck needs to be quick. Considering your commander is a 6 mana creature, it takes a while to get out and you would need some ramp. More artifact mana, which would also buff some enchantments like All That Glitters , is definitely needed. The Signets, The Talismen, the 3 Mana Rocks, Mind Stone , Worn Powerstone , or even Sisay's Ring would all help to make sure you can cast your commander on turn 4 or 5 while also having artifacts that can be used to cast spells. For example, casting Thran Dynamo on turn 3 or 4, then tapping it to cast an equipment card.
Also, when playing equipment cards, get more cards that do things. Echo Circlet isn't needed in an aggressive deck, Nightmare Lash with 7 Swamps is not great (however you do have Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , so it can be good but it is 100 card singleton), Helm of the Host is pretty bad considering the tokens won't have any equipment and won't be as powered up, and Explorer's Scope can ramp, but so slowly that it isn't worth it. Considering this is an aggressive deck, playing all the Swords would be a viable option. Not only do they buff your commander, but they also give them protection from colors, meaning that they wouldn't be able to be blocked and can then get around chumpers. Also, the swords have awesome "deal combat damage to a player" effects that can easily be taken advantage of while also staying as aggressive as possible
Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Open the Graves , Cathars' Crusade , Ajani's Welcome , Mace of the Valiant , and Embercleave all don't do much with only 10 creatures, so either play more buffing creatures like Kinsbaile Cavalier or get rid of cards that rely on creatures. I think you should get rid of em because your commander is really the only creature you'd need. Sure, a knight can give your commander double strike, but so can an equipment card ( Fireshrieker ), and for far cheaper with "Equip Knight 0"
You only had three choices of Elspeth, and you picked the wrong one. Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Elspeth, Knight-Errant are both better than Elspeth Tirel in terms of making creatures, keeping the board free, and buffing your commander. You'd probably play Knight-Errant for that second ability though
Liliana of the Dark Realms doesn't do much apart from find swamps. She doesn't actually ramp you and her second ability can do very little with so few swamps.
To get even more stuff for cheaper, Stoneforge Mystic . Not only is it a tutor, but it can put equipment onto the battlefield a) at instant speed and b) for .
