No Problem!

I'm just not sure what the win condition is. I guess some of the bigger creatures like Sepulchral Primordial and Sheoldred, Whispering One count, but IDK.

I think there's plenty of removal in the deck, especially creature removal, but a lot of effects cost life to activate, and the only ways I have to gain life in the deck are like Vampiric Rites and Exsanguinate . Could probably use more lifegain? But maybe I like lifegain too much lol.

I would probably cut Death Grasp simply because you already have Exsanguinate and Debt to the Deathless .

Might also cut Sphinx of the Steel Wind , just seems kinda pricy (mana-wise)

Runeroads thats basicly why Geier Reach Sanitarium is in the deck, its really easy to get it into play a lot of the time and it acts as either a finisher or a way to get to Exsanguinate + Vexing Shusher

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 ?

Those cards are very singular. They do not say "opponents" cards like Exsanguinate and things like that are great and there are alot. Sorin is ok but his +1 is 1 ping something, and really you would want to minus him instantly to bring back something 4 cmc or lower to the battlefield. Just seems weak IMO. But like I said you want cards that target multiples or do much more damage than the ones that do a bit here and there. The reason blood tribute is good is because if you are low it will increase your lifetotal again. If sanguine bond is out at the same time its a bonus, but its rare unless you tutor for it.

Other spells that function like Exsanguinate are Drain Life and Soul Burn , if you're looking for more of that.
