I don't really think Champion of the Parish will be useful late game because all of your humans would end up as sacrifices for Falkenrath Aristocrat.

I feel like a 4-mana finisher would be great instead of Viscera Seer. Maybe Falkenrath Aristocrat or Olivia Voldaren? They arent the best of choices, but i think that this deck will seriously lack late game power if too many creatures get removed.

I won't argue that Path to Exile isn't an exceptional removal spell, however I personally do not like it as I have seen it win me games being on the receiving end of the extra lands it gives. I prefer the removal options that I have in the deck over path. I do like the idea of the zombies and I have a playset of Gravecrawler lying around, I looked into some options and it's definitely viable and would make for a great alternative and open up some neat options (I'm thinking maybe Shambling Remains and Dregscape Zombie for unearth or Sultai Emissary for manifest, and how awesome is casting Tidehollow Sculler and sacrificing before the ability resolves to permanently exile a card from the opponents hand..) but I'm kind of digging the humans theme with Falkenrath Aristocrat at the moment. I may try that later though.

Vampire Aristocrat cost 3 mana, at that spot he is competing against Vampire Nighthawk and Stromkirk Captain and he realy cant beat any of those in utility

Falkenrath Aristocrat is absolutly under consideration. is just that i dont own any of her

Vampiric Fury and Bloodcrazed Neonate are both great cards but as Mono-Red cards they mess whit Vampire Nocturnus i am currently working on another Mono-Red Vampire/Werewolf deck for them

Well while most cases yes: Dismember or Tragic Slip but, the amount of sacrifices in this deck brought my attention towards it. Also because I have access to black mana, I somewhat shunned Dismember because in the end I am either losing 4 life, 2 life or paying 3 mana vs one. With the amount of Path to Exiles + Crackling Doom you suggested, I don't feel too limited with Tragic Slip. That's just my reasoning for it even though I feel Dismember is again, better in any other case.

I am curious about how Chandra, Pyromaster would fit in this deck. Looking at her +1 and 0 again, you are right for sure with how strong she is vs the evasiveness with Restoration Angel. The only thing I do not like about

Butcher of the Horde is while in standard he is a bomb, in modern he has no "protection". With Falkenrath Aristocrat, and Cartel Aristocrat. Falkenrath can get bigger with Bloodsoaked Champion and he can just come back again and again (being his own purpose is to die). As more testing goes on, I feel Butcher will find a home but for now, he is on the boarder.

Hey everyone, I'm a fellow Mardu player for quite some time now. And came across VampireArmy's page and his link to this discussion. I'm currently building a midrange build, the most common one I fear. The deck is based on tokens, coming from Young Pyromancer and Monastery Mentor. Using these to apply pressure and buy some time, with the help of all our known removal suite (Lightning Bolt, Lightning Helix, Path to Exile, Terminate, Thoughtseize, and so forth...). And attempting to finish the enemy off with Falkenrath Aristocrat. A card I think is very overlooked in most midrange builds. The card can feed itself off Bob, to cut off the lifeloss, and all the tokens. Alongside Thundermaw Hellkite and Pack Rats. The deck can usually handle itself.
What I'm trying to say is, if it has not already been said, that tokens is a good way to go, with the help of some big finishers.

TL;DR: Tokens sounds like a viable midrange option with the help of Monastery Mentor, Young Pyromancer and Pack Rat.

You're right, I misread Falkenrath Aristocrat.

I think that adding a singleton Sorin, Solemn Visitor may be good, although I'm not sure what I'd cut. I'd just add one for now - if he's good you can always add more later.

As for the sideboard, I think that Kor Firewalker is significantly better against burn, but that Timely Reinforcements is better against other aggressive decks, such as Zoo, so I think that which one you want is more dependent on what your local metagame looks like than anything else.

Also, a card I'd recommend is Grim Lavamancer. It's an aggressive one-drop, removal, and a good late-game card, all rolled into one (and it's also not that expensive). Two copies is where I'd start.
