Elenda, the Dusk Rose Discussion

Phaetion possibly, but that flavor text and Krav's artwork seems pretty clear to me. Though if it was a situation of unrequited love, you would have a total role reversal from what you would expect between a demon and an angel. That would make for some spicy story telling.
When I think aristocrats I automatically think tokens and lifegain. They are so intertwined in B/W that I it would hamper the deck by not including either. Quite frankly, these two look powerful enough to knock Elenda, the Dusk Rose from her perch as commander, or they go into her 99 as a value engine/wincon at least.

Honestly, if it were my deck, I'd swap out one or both Helm of the Hosts for Elenda, the Dusk Rose and cut a Legion's Landing as well as both Triumph of Gerrards and one copy of either Paladin of Atonement or Knight of Grace for four 3-drops. To answer your question, since you're better off with something that impacts the board, the best choice out of those you presented me with would likely be Forerunner of the Legion, but I'd personally go for either Benalish Marshal or Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, since you can't use History of Benalia.

Khunjund: You're absolutely right, Dowsing Dagger
Flip is a little underwhelming, especially since it goes against the tribal thread of the deck. For now, I'm going to try playtesting Triumph of Gerrard in its place, as History of Benalia simply is not in my budget. I think that Triumph of Gerrard should work well getting counters onto the likes of Paladin of Atonement, though I'm also trying the deck with Elenda, the Dusk Rose so it loses a little bit of its potential usefulness.
You were absolutely right though, the deck was being bogged down being somewhere inbetween aggro and midrange, so I'm open to trying to find things to try and smooth it over!
InquisitorBiggie: History of Benalia is a card I'll sneak in there one day if I can manage to collect them, but that $20 pricetag is unfortunately too high to pay outright.
As I just said above, I just edited the deck a little bit to run Triumph of Gerrard as a little mini History, and also in place of Dowsing Dagger Flip. I'm not quite ready to part with Helm of the Host quite yet, but the day may come.
Sanctum Seeker is a strong contender, however I just parted with Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Vona, Butcher of Magan in exchange for Seal Aways and Knight of Grace for a little smoother mana curving, so the Vampirism is a lot smaller, but if I change it back, I'll definitely have to consider him.

Changes I would suggest:
Things to consider for replacing Walk the Plank: + Feast of Blood + Urge to Feed + Ultimate Price + Cast Down + Doom Blade + Fatal Push + Go for the Throat + Orzhov Charm + Smother + Terror + maybe others
Btw in case you wanted to know about non-blue counter spells lol -> Mana Tithe Would not recommend this but just wanted to show you.

You're making a lot of creatures really strong. Maybe try Elenda, the Dusk Rose. Get her, pump her, sac her, profit. Ofc it's not a necessity.
As for the deck itself, I'm a big fan of B/W Vampires. Could say I'm a bit biased for this deck. And one that's running many of the same combos as mine? Genious!
I love it man. Props to you on that. +1 till the sun comes up bro.

Depala, Pilot Exemplar, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Gishath, Sun's Avatar, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Samut, Voice of Dissent and Temmet, Vizier of Naktamun don't seem tier 1 at all. Ghalta's incredibly consistent, 2 Green is usually all you ever pay for it, I'd think about moving it up a tier. Tezzeret the Schemer is easily tier 2, maybe even tier 1.

Revenge note: Elenda, the Dusk Rose has been chump murdered by Anson more than once. Bleed all his life every time.
