Hey man, I like your deck idea but it seems like it might be too mixed between control and midrange. You have some good vampires, like Gatekeeper of Malakir, Vampire Nighthawk, and Olivia Voldaren, but you only run 13 creatures. I think, to have a good midrange deck, you're going to need another 5-10 creatures, including 1 and 2 drops. Also, Falkenrath Aristocrat seems anti-synergetic. Do you have purpose for it?

Alternatively, if you want to emphasize the control aspects of your deck you can focus on cards like Keranos, God of Storms and Cruel Ultimatum, adding cards like Electrolyze, Duress/Thoughtseize, and Dismember.

Check out my deck for more card ideas in our colors and leave a comment or vote, if you would. I think if you focus your strategy a bit more you could have an awesome deck!

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

Gideon17: I wanted to add Captivating Vampire however he's slower than Stromkirk Captain (his 3 drop competitor). Vampire Hexmage will be considered but not sure about her yet.

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

I Think Falkenrath Aristocrat should be replaced with something like Olivia Voldaren seeing as how you only have two different creatures that are human.

Also, although Excava is cool, there is only one other creature that has actual +1/+1 counters on it (Rakdos Cackler) so I would suggest replacing all your Excava's with Ashenmoor Liege or Blightning

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 .
