Feast of Blood Discussion
1 month ago
So basically, I think this deck just needs some more focus. Have you heard of the rule of 9? It’s where you pick 9 cards that are going to be the core of your deck, adding 4 of each of them, and then adding 24 lands. That gets you to 60. Then you can mess with it from there. It’s a great way to trim the fat and make sure the decks you build operate efficiently.
Aside from that, just some random things.
Wit's End is incredibly expensive to use at 7 mana to do something that doesn’t really have much to do with anything. If you’re gonna spend that much, you’ll want it to be something like a complete board wipe or some game changing combo.
Another thing, being a vampire tribal deck, you have an opportunity to take huge advantage of your creature type being uniform, and you aren’t really capitalizing on it.
All that in mind, here are just some random cards to look at.

Changes I would suggest:
Things to consider for replacing Walk the Plank: + Feast of Blood + Urge to Feed + Ultimate Price + Cast Down + Doom Blade + Fatal Push + Go for the Throat + Orzhov Charm + Smother + Terror + maybe others
Btw in case you wanted to know about non-blue counter spells lol -> Mana Tithe Would not recommend this but just wanted to show you.

Yeah, I would cut Dark Ritual. In EDH the upside of ramping using spells is often diminished, unless you are playing storm. Mana rocks are a much better alternative.
I would cut Kindred Charge
Urge to Feed is cool flavorwise, but I don't think it fits, you have better single target removal and better pump elsewhere.
Grave Peril - Isn't a "may", and is easier to play around, gives your opponent the ability to creature they want to trigger it with. Might as well be a Chainer's Edict type spell, which I don't think you need as you are flush with single target removal.
Edge of Divinity - Is good for Edgar, and is great for the cost, but he will be dying often, and there are only 2 other targets for it in the deck that get full benefit. I think there are better persistent pump options.
Don't get me started on your Ajani bromance....

FiendishElf, I like that you're keeping up with the times and not letting this deck fade away. As for Dominaria, Karazov is cool but is wayyyyyy too expensive for what he does. Given Reconnaissance is a big part of this deck, his ability will barely trigger, and being a 7 drop with a garbo Olivia Voldaren ability doesn't make up for it. For Garna, the hast is nice, but not worth 5 mana. Not being a vamp also hurts. Her Second Sunrise ability is unique to black and red, but I'd rather drop a Patriarch's Bidding and have everyone shit themselves. Arvad is a quirky card, given the only legendary deck is GW, but he seems good in standard. In this deck, pumping a handful of creatures and being a high-curve dude with no ability is weak sauce. Besides Cast Down, which in this deck I use Feast of Blood, nothing will be added into Edgar from Dominaria.
Given your insight and dedication to this deck, I heavily suggest you look at some of my other decks on my main page, since I have put much more time and effort into them, and are actually built and nearly foiled out. Thanks for the suggestions!!

I like it! I'd recommend running 4 fetch lands and 2 shock lands in your deck's colors if you're playing modern, it really makes a difference with having the right colors and having more consistent draws. I think the ones you would want are Bloodstained Mire and Blood Crypt. I don't think you need Feast of Blood or Tragic Slip, I'd try Fatal Push instead.
I don't think Blood Artist, Rakish Heir, or Stromkirk Noble are very good cards. Maybe the latter as a sideboard against 5-Color Humans but thats it. Instead, I would run 2x more Bloodghast, 4x Insolent Neonate, and then a planeswalker or two to shake things up a bit. I think the best planeswalker set you could run in this deck would be 2x Liliana of the Veil but if you don't want to break the bank Liliana Vess is also good and if you want to stick with the theme Sorin Markov is pretty decent. Sorin's Vengeance could also be fun to run as a one-of late-game win condition.

TheGiantOfTheJungle: I did a full revamp before your second comment, so I haven't included your suggestions. I am considering some. Your card draw suggestions seem to mostly require paying life to draw, which I don't really like doing.
Mostly I'll be trying to use the combo of Basilisk Collar + Blade of the Bloodchief + Olivia Voldaren for cheap creature kill. isn't too bad in that instance, plus it'll build Olivia very big very quickly. There isn't a lot of flying or reach which the folks I play with, although removal could be a problem.
I had Feast of Blood, I might sideboard it. Chaos Warp sounds like it could backfire rather spectacularly. Urge to Feed will probably get sideboarded too. Sanctum Seeker, Vanquisher's Banner, and Kalastria Highborn, I will definitely consider. Bloodghast is way too expensive, I'm trying to keep this as budget as I can. I don't like paying that much for Bloodline Keeper Flip but it's a pretty big part of the deck.
Thanks for the suggestions, I really appreciate your insight!

1v1 is a very different playing field, so that's very fair. I'll tune my answers propmtly. Also I'll divide em into the most essential categories for efficiency.
I hope these help and aren't overdoing it!

Your deck has a vampire them going, and I imagine it works well. If you want to improve it my first suggestion would be to replace non vampire 2 drops with Gifted Aetherborn. My next suggestion would be to get a vampire lord like Captivating Vampire or Bloodline Keeper Flip in place of more non vampire creatures. Lastly, Shriekmaw can be replaced with Murder and get many more targets. Rain of Tears is powerful, but if your focus isn't destroying lands you could make better use of Sign in Blood to either finish off your opponent or refill your hand. Duress and Distress can be uprgaded to Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek. In the same vein you could uprgade Bloodbond Vampire with Asylum Visitor or Vampire Nocturnus one last good card is Feast of Blood.
