Fell Specter Discussion

Really unique idea, love it!
I have a few things i would do differently, let me know what you think.
1). Fell Specter seems a bit weak mainboard here, Only 1 card really synergises with it, Arterial Flow. Once this creature has used its ETB then its very weak, and I feel there should be a better option. Personally I would remove them all and add in x3 Raiders' Wake and x1 Arguel's Blood Fast Flip. My reasoning for this would be that you'r gameplan revolves around attacking with creatures anyway with Vicious Conquistador, Tattered Mummy and lots of flyers mean this card should always trigger. And the arguel's allows your deck to draw some cards as it looks like it might run out of steam quickly, as it has no card draw and lots of low CMC cards.
2). Vraska's Contempt is one of the best cards in standard, but with it being the only instant in your deck, your opponent will know if you are holding this up on thier turn, maybe drop these to sideboard and bring them in for matchups that needs instant speed interaction (izzet drakes) and go for more sorcery speed removal mainboard. +1 Walk the Plank +1 Arguel's Blood Fast Flip. (I could be wrong about this assumption, as i havent played the deck)
3). Card draw seems inportant to this deck and I would try and add a few in somewhere, if you've read my comment up until now, I have added in 2 arguel's blood fasts to give the deck some card draw and although there are several different options, Costly Plunder, Champion of Dusk, Blood Divination i feel that this is probably your best option. Cheap and repeatable.
4). Lastly Arterial Flow seems like one of the biggest pay-offs for going a vampire heavy mainboard, and putting 4 in the maindeck feels right to me.

Great deck, I enjoy playing it!
A modification I found useful is mainboarding 4 Disinformation Campaigns instead of Notion Rain and Lazav, the Multifarious, and replacing the Thief of Sanitys with Fell Specters. There's a surprising amount of discard in here with that modification, and the Fell Specters give it a little more oomph with a minimal impact on surveil

Thanks for the comment and suggestion. I've been looking over a few things, and yeah, it is lacking some creatures, but almost none of them have what I want that synergies well with it. I'm going to try this, by adding some Ruin Raiders and move the Raiders' Wake to the sideboard so it can interchange with Fell Specter depending on if I'm playing against Aggro or Control. However, there is a good chance I'll just shelve this deck until Ravnica Allegiance releases and will have a bigger pool of Rakdos cards available.

Well, when going for the CMDR kill, Mesmeric Orb is the card of dreams, where other cards aren't bad, like Vicious Rumors, they don't do enough to warrant me wanting their inclusion without the commander.
What should be kept is a lot of tutors, to fetch different cards, as well as a lot of ramp. Then a reasonably large hand disruption package, and finishing the deck off with some combos, and cards that do a ton to swing the board in your favor.
Unsure of your budget, and the power level you want, here are the cards I would add to increase the competitiveness of the deck:
(On a budget? Do nothing with the lands!)
Draw: Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, and Asylum Visitor (can top cards you don't want to discard), Library of Leng (tops cards you don't want to discard again... but in a different way), Necropotence
(On a budget? use control elements like Doom Blade, and removal in black instead of stax, some of the more budget stax is okay, but generally the more layered stax the better, so the less the worse each is. Removal is a good replacement.)
Vicious Rumors, Abyssal Nocturnus, Fell Specter, Guul Draz Specter, Herald of Anguish, Hypnotic Specter, Liliana's Reaver, Myojin of Night's Reach, Needle Specter, Scythe Specter, Sewer Nemesis, Stronghold Rats, Wei Night Raiders, Whispering Specter, Ghoulcaller's Bell, Darksteel Plate, Ordeal of Erebos, Raiders' Wake, Bontu's Last Reckoning, Anvil of Bogardan, Putrefaction, Painful Quandary, Megrim, Fraying Omnipotence, Rise of the Dark Realms, Torment of Hailfire, Liliana Vess.
Not sorry about the long comment ;)

Where is the Fell Specter at? It is way good and would help get the damage out to win. Just a suggestion as always though.

Nyxathid, Abyssal Nocturnus, and Shrieking Affliction would be nice in discard heavy decks. If you want the deck to be more creature heavy Fell Specter and Raiders' Wake are nice as well. Hypnotic Specter is also a good choice.

Sadistic Hypnotist- all your opponents lose their hands, elf triggers, good stuff. Dark Deal, more Nath triggers. Geth's Grimoire draws you crazy cards with wheels. Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Fell Specter, Raiders' Wake are all good for a discard deck. I'd throw Mind Slash in this deck too.
