Falkenrath Aristocrat Discussion

Since you have lots of procs with Eddy thanks to Anointed Procession i'd recommend Yahenni, Undying Partisan too possibly against Child of Night, she would be the same as Falkenrath Aristocrat.

Both Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet will also find a good use in your deck, and they will proc with the procession as well.

I would recommend Vampire Nocturnus but that might go unreliable in mardu instead of rakdos.

Both Rakdos Charm and Boros Charm could find use.

The Kindred Dominance off the Wizard precon is a nice little one-sided boardwipe too.

Sorry for the quadro-post but that was supposed to be Falkenrath Aristocrat not noble

You're gonna want to lower the creature count so that you can find room for some amount of interaction in discard and removal. Cards like these can help you disrupt your opponent.

Inquisition of Kozilek

Collective Brutality



Fatal Push

Lightning Bolt


Some other good stuff to include a couple powerful Vampires you may have overlooked


Kolaghan's Command

Olivia Voldaren

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

Falkenrath Aristocrat

Feast of Blood is pretty bad. It really is. If you want tribal removal look at Urge to Feed. Otherwise Rakdos has better generic removal.

Yahenni is a worse Falkenrath Aristocrat imo.

First off I would get rid of the tap lands like Cinder Barrens and Rakdos Guildgate. Bloodfell Caves & Foreboding Ruins won't tap most of the time, so they are ok, but I would consider changing them out as well if you find better dual lands. I would get rid of all of your artifacts and max out your Falkenrath Aristocrat. I would change out Lightning Axe for Lightning Bolt. Figure out which one out of Master of Cruelties and Priest of the Blood Rite you want to have in your deck and maximize that card. You won't need 2 different 5 mana creatures, only 1. After that I would work on finding more efficient versions of cards that you have, like replacing Lightning Axe with Lightning Bolt. Nice Deck! I have a deck that uses similar cards but a different strategy. YOu should check it out for ideas: Demons Devouring Humans.

Aristocrats is a fairly established archetype that does exactly what you are interested in -- sacrifice things for value. There are a number of different styles and color combinations you can run for this style of deck. But the ideas behind the deck are almost always the same: you want low drop recursive creatures or token generators (Tukatongue Thallid, Doomed Traveler, Blisterpod, Safehold Elite, Young Wolf, Voice of Resurgence, Bloodghast, Gravecrawler, Bloodsoaked Champion, Mogg War Marshal, Lingering Souls, Promise of Bunrei, and Abzan Ascendancy), sacrifice engines (Viscera Seer, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Cartel Aristocrat, Nantuko Husk, Bloodthrone Vampire, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Butcher of the Horde), and ways to generate advantages off of the sacrifices (primarily Blood Artist, and Zulaport Cutthroat).

Some decks operate as an aggro deck, some operate as more of a midrange deck, and other still operate more along the lines of a combo deck. Depending on the style you want, and the color combination, I can give more direct advice. I just don't ant to type up a long list of tips and advice for a deck you don't want :P

I've run vampires before but they are a tricky tribe since they do have some support but not as much as other tribes. The biggest problems I've found are that the best vampires are expensive (mana and money wise) and the game is a bit grindier. So you have to be ready to play the long game but their life-gain abilities help keep you in the game.

Budget pending, I would recommend cutting out some of your weaker non-vampire creatures for the following:

Captivating Vampire
Drana, Liberator of Malakir
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
Nirkana Revenant
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Necropolis Regent
Vampire Nocturnus
Malakir Bloodwitch
Dark Impostor
Blood Artist
Markov Blademaster
Kalastria Highborn
Falkenrath Gorger
Falkenrath Aristocrat
Stromkirk Condemned
Gatekeeper of Malakir
Pawn of Ulamog

The thing to keep in mind with vampires is most tribal decks that use Olivia will be mostly Black with a bit of Red. So you need to accelerate your Black mana production more. You've got some solid mana rocks but here are a few additional ideas:

Nirkana Revenant
Crypt Ghast
Caged Sun
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers
Crypt of Agadeem

Increasing your card draw is my final recommendation. Black offers tons of ways to draw cards but I recommend Phyrexian Arena the most.

I hope this helps! Best of luck!
