Erdwal Ripper Discussion

Fine deck! I see you have plan to win a game at least. And i see you love the vanilla creatures much.
When i first saw Resolute Blademaster, i was inspired to to make a deck on it, but failed when discover that have no card draw in commons. I want to make some suggestions to your deck through.
Also, Soltari Visionary cold be cool removal considering double strike.
Skirk Commando can triggered twice and kill creatures that player wont used as blockers
Some cantrip mana artifacts can give you buff at the start and let play Resolute Blademaster turn earlier, but in late game you can draw cards instead of them to play something else: Boros Cluestone, Commander's Sphere, Mind Stone

Sorry this comment is coming so late, I REALLY had to sleep, then shit happened, anyway. Sorry.
Your mana base is a little screwy and you have... how many removal spells? I'm probably not one to talk here, but you NEED some removal against commander-centric decks. Making their lives that much harder can give you the edge you need to take them down.

I'm a red novice myself but I'll do what I can. Red is a very fast, combat centric color. A lot of red vamps, like Bloodcrazed Neonate, Erdwal Ripper, or Falkenrath Marauders reward you for hitting your opponent's face. Since red is one half of Rakdos colors, there are also red vamps that encourage you to discard cards, like Furyblade Vampire, the above mentioned Olivia, Mobilized for War, or any of number of them with the "Madness" keyword, which lets play them for a special cost if you would normally discard them.
As for non-vamp cards to toss in, I've already discussed damage amp. Most vamps reward you for either hitting face or killing creatures, and damage amp will make both easier. Another nifty trick in red is extra combat phases with cards like Relentless Assault, Aggravated Assault, or Fury of the Horde.
In essence, Red and all its subsidiaries are all about one thing: swing. Swing hard and Swing often.
This all seems like basic info to me and I'm not sure it helps, but it's what I've got for you. I hope you get something out of it.

You've got a lot of vamps that need to deal combat damage to make them more powerful (like Bloodmad Vampire). To make sure they get through you could add Rogue's Passage (maybe cut Thespian's Stage or Blighted Fen) and replace Mask of Avacyn with Whispersilk Cloak. I'd also recommend replacing either Rakish Heir, Erdwal Ripper, or Bloodcrazed Neonate with the similar but much more impactful Drana, Liberator of Malakir.
Hope you found this helpful.

I would try to push down the cmc of your creaturs maybe not cut a few of the less efficient dubble strike creaturs and replace them with creaturs that grow and would benefit of getting dubble strike mostly red vampires.like Stromkirk NobleBloodcrazed NeonateFalkenrath ExterminatorRakish HeirErdwal RipperBloodmad VampireHavengul VampireHeirs of StromkirkFalkenrath MaraudersSlith FirewalkerTaurean MaulerWar Elemental
Giving dubble strike:
These are just some cards they arn't all equal :DThe most important part of building red is evry card needs to do work becous chanses are your not going to see too mutch of your deck drawing death cards is the worst so think 5 times about evry card you put in :)In the end mono red is hard to pull off aside from a dretti stax build en in less degree krenko en kiki jiki combo its going to be an uphill battle.This can be a strengt though as long you don't draw to mutch attension people ignore you :D

Thanks for the suggestion Tadeusz I lie your idea and will include those two in he deck but taking out Mephidross Vampire would hurt the deck because it benefits Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet ability still keeping true to the vampire tribal. Ill reduce the ammount of the Mephidross Vampire down to one and take out 1 Indulgent Aristocrat and 2 of the Erdwal Ripper to fit 2 Rakish Heir and 2 Olivia's Bloodsworn thanks for the help!
