Madcookie Don't try to find reprints within the mechanics!

The reason they print these mechanics is that(with the exception of Flashback which is an all-star) they are all fun to play in all formats but they need support in commander!

All they need to reprint Oracle of Mul Daya or Mana Reflection is a green deck! They can print Doubling Season in the populate deck if they want or they can print a similar card in black which will immediately cost as much if the populate deck is abzan as many suggest! Bloodchief Ascension , Painful Quandary and Kolaghan's Command are excellent with madness while Wound Reflection , Exquisite Blood and Phyrexian Arena would also fit in any black deck! Mesmeric Orb would work wonders in a dimir Flashback deck focused on self Mill Morph could have Akroma's Memorial or Eldrazi Monument

There is value in the themes! Let's hope they put it in the decks!

I quite like your version of the deck as well. Other than the cards you've already suggested me, there are a few cards in here I might add to my own especially that juicy Stunning Reversal .

As for the cards I would suggest you, I think you should try adding Glacial Chasm as it can help you survive early game (though it doesn't synergize well with Geode Golem ) as well as Maze of Ith for the same purpose.

Bojuka Bog is a good pick to counter decks that are highly dependant on their graveyard.

If you end up adding multiple non-Swamp lands, I really suggest Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth as well as a way to try fetching it.

Chainer, Dementia could be really good if well used, but sadly Doom Whisperer is also a Nightmare so those cards don't synergize that well. Unless you have a way to protect the Chainer, then they'll synergize well.

I don't know if Exquisite Blood is out of your budget, but it's a really good lifegain card. And it stacks with lifelink so buffing a lifelink creature with Unspeakable Symbol can make it really hard for your opponent to deal with that much lifegain.

I'm probably going to keep the format modern, Hexaflexagon because I'm a low budget MTG player, and this deck will need to last me for a long time. I'm thinking about making it a three-color, as red vampires appear pretty powerful. Thank you YamishiTheWickedOne for the Ideas, and IlLupo643 for the advice about the Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood . I'm going to make a lot of revisions to this deck!!

Sorin Markov, Bloodlord of Innistrad is my B/W Vampires. I used to use the Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood combo, but the game ends in a tie if your opponent doesn’t scoop, you have to break the loop or it lasts forever. Mortify can get it done. And Forsaken Sanctuary will only only slow you down. Add a few plains and more swamps or less mana

Your statement about Marven not going in the deck is the same reason I cut him from mine. Too slow. You still have alot of cards that I think can be cut just for better stuff in general that you have in your Maybe board IMO all those cards go in and you have enough stuff that should be cu, but you are moving in the right direction!!! Also be aware of the infinite combo from Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood . Once it starts you cant stop it, and that gets hated out of alot of groups. I took out Sanguine Bond for that purpose alone. Now granted they are not on field at the same time often but alot of people in your group or LGS may not like the infinite combo. Unless you are playing CEDH.

But great job on making improvements!

Change Notes:

Out: Exquisite Blood
In: Cruel Celebrant
I want to increase my vampire count. Exquisite Blood is really strong, but it's a 5 mana enchantment which does nothing when it hits the board. There are other cards in this deck with the same flaw. But I felt like choosing to cut this one for Cruel Celebrant is the best way to go, since the main purpose of Cruel Celebrant is to drain some life.

Out: Diabolic Intent
In: Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord
Tutors are huge and powerful. But I want to tune this deck a bit down for now. The abilitys of Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord are really strong too, even though it's not tutoring, it helps to pump your vampires and cheat mana.

Out: Oversold Cemetery
In: Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord
I liked Oversold Cemetery 's effect, but it was really situational. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord can bring creatures back and buff your vampires. That's why I switched them out, since Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord is increasing the value of our vampires.

I'm trying to get my hands on Exquisite Blood and Exsanguinate . You had a couple of beautiful vamps that I'd love to include in my deck, as well. What are your thoughts on including Mikaeus, the Unhallowed ?

Just like before I have made the revelation that what I thought was a cool loop is nothing more than a half combo that only slows down Sanguine Bond & Exquisite Blood which is slow and barley competitive as it is. I hope if there is anyone watching my slow crawl through mono Black they can use this info not to make the same mistakes. I will be searching for another compliment to the mono Black vamps and will take suggestions.
