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 think Olivia Voldaren has some issues in modern. While she has toughness she doesn't have a way to protect herself. Abilities while powerful cost a good chunk of mana. It has less chance to activate evolve on Experiment One.
Falkenrath Aristocrat has all the above things including human support, and haste to go off on the turn its played. It won't allow for an extra turn where sorceries could deal with her before she can at least get some work in.
My combo around the blade is Blade of the Bloodchief + Bloodghast + Falkenrath Aristocrat +Kill spells; is that not good enough? Regarding Olivia Voldaren, Bloodline Keeper Flip and Vampire Nighthawk they seem a bit slow; i want this deck to be fast. I rreeaallyy like Vampire Nocturnus however I was told he is less reliable then Captivating Vampire. I could swap Vampire Nocturnus in for Falkenrath Aristocrat and Blade of the Bloodchief, however not sure about that change. I have 14 kill spells + 2 Gatekeeper of Malakir and 4 Captivating Vampire (in total 20 ways to remove creatures from opponents board). Don't have too much money so yea D; will rework the lands for sure and yea my local game store loves counter D;;;; mass counters!! And thanks for all the sideboard recommendations I will have to give mine quite a fixing.
Everyone thanks for the suggestions.
reawkwian: Viscera Seer is nice was really considering but I feel like he's a bit slow. I have a similar but slightly faster and altered combo. Blade of the Bloodchief + Bloodghast + Removal to buff Falkenrath Aristocrat -> has self-protection and can sac others or a Pulse Tracker .Will totally add Go for the Throat and Doom Blade and Gatekeeper of Malakir
jackriottech: I realllllllyyyyyy like Sorin, Solemn Visitor, however Liliana does synergies better with my cards. And Thanks for the +1 :D
TallGreg: I like all of your suggestions however having lots of trouble fitting it all in. Not sure what to take out. Regarding your land change, is 18 lands enough? And is Cavern of Souls bad to have?
@tclaw12: Thanks :) And indeed I'll eventually be getting ahold of some Bloodstained Mire (s), but not for this deck per se' because in this case that kind of color fixing is completely unnecessary as the mana base is already consistent enough as-is..
@firestar157: Falkenrath Aristocrat isn't here for the sac ability, but for those first two keywords in the text box: Flying & Haste--- so it's immediately swinging overhead for 4 (Aggro baby).. Olivia Voldaren on the other hand, while a strong card too, is better suited for more of a Midrange/Control build (and can still be Lightning Bolt ed away).. Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch is here for similar reasons; her last ability is neat but it's because she's a 4/4 First Strike that can immediately be turned sideways (Aggro-Aggro-Aggro).. However Blightning I've been considering for a while now, and is likely to find a few slots in the SB with the rest of my Burn.. So, with all that considered; what do you think? And would you Upvote? :D
Hi there, I've seen your deck a few times, but I kept forgetting to login later and comment. I would strongly suggest using 3-4x Falkenrath Aristocrat . I've seen people use her in their Rakdos decks on MTGO, and she wins the game most of the time. She's simply difficult to deal with while applying loads of pressure. Anyway, good luck, +1 :)
Falkenrath Aristocrat isn't used well in this deck. If you had more ways to take control of opponents creatures or some humans, then maybe, but I think Olivia Voldaren is better than this in general. I also recommend Rakish Heir .
I'd go +1-2 Dismember , + 1-2 Slaughter Pact , +2 Remand , + 1-2 Electrolyze , -1 Civilized Scholar Flip , -2 Falkenrath Aristocrat ], -2 Surgical Extraction , - 0-1 Terminate , - 0-1 Cryptic Command , -1 Go for the Throat .
