Sacrifice a creature: Falkenrath Aristocrat is indestructible this turn. If the sacrificed creature was a Human, put a +1/+1 counter on Falkenrath Aristocrat.

I love my Olivia Voldaren EDH deck. I went vampire tribal and have skipped some optimal cards in favor of more thematic/flavorful ones. The deck is Olivia's Masquerade . With a tribal deck, Falkenrath Aristocrat is a bit underwhelming. There are more powerful things to be done with 4 mana, unless you are generating a fair number of tokens.
35, 36 lands is pretty solid. I don't like playing tutors (maybe I will put in Vampiric Tutor ) . Olivia serves as pretty good removal, but a few spot removal spells and a few wraths are important in EDH. Some artifact ramp might be good depending on where you take things.
If you go to my profile, you can see that I've created 411 decks, and the large majority of those are edh decks, so I can try to help you out.
Although vampire tribal works with her, consider this particular control strategy as well: MagicalHacker - Olivia Voldaren. Basically, by giving her deathtouch, you can turn her into 1R: Destroy target creature and ~ gets a +1/+1 counter. and 4BBR: Gain control of target creature, it becomes a vampire, and ~ gets a +1/+1 counter.
Theres other cool stuff like that and Heartstone and lifelink and other neat stuff, so check it out! (I may have already given this to you to check out, but i forgot, so might as well...)
Also, as for your questions, Falkenrath Aristocrat is a pretty great vampire, even without the counters. I say definitely!
I think with vampire tribal in conjunction with what i suggested for Olivia, I advise against going with a human subtheme...
The only ratio I've seen and liked overall is 35 mana : 64 non-lands : 1 commander (duh to the last part).
With Epochalyptik's resources, you will have plenty of versatility available to you, but I hope the decklist above gives you some synergy as well!
Happy deckbuilding, and hope I could help!
I just decided to embark on my journey towards an EDH deck with Olivia Voldaren leading the way! I'm probably gonna go with somewhat of a vampire tribal, but that's part of what I need you guys for.
Some quick questions:
Should I include Falkenrath Aristocrat ?
If so, should I include some kind of Human subtheme with Xathrid Necromancer or something like that?
What types of numbers should I have, like what type of creatures:removal:hand disruption:tutors:ramp ratios should I include?
I love vampire decks. Very cool build. Do you have any Falkenrath Aristocrat s? She is a beast in vampire builds and be a strong finisher alongside Olivia Voldaren . I would also recommend at least two Lightning Bolt s. I know they aren't vampire oriented, but they are the best red card in modern. If you want to keep it solely on the blood suckers then this build is badass. +1 for sure
we need to spruce up the deck with a few bombs (particularly at 4 and to a lesser extent 5). i recommend something along the order of: Hero of Oxid Ridge Hellrider Falkenrath Aristocrat Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch or secondarily Rakka Mar Awaken the Ancient then at 5 Thundermaw Hellkite Stormbreath Dragon or even a Demigod of Revenge
This deck is beautiful, I love it. I don't know if you ever will, or would want to make another rendition, but I run a vampire based sacrificial deck featuring Falkenrath Aristocrat . Featuring cards like Captivating Vampire , Olivia Voldaren , Act of Treason , Harness by Force , and Threaten . The look on peoples faces when you take their creature, smack them with it, then sacrifice it to empower your own creatures is priceless. :p
