Furyblade Vampire Discussion

I'm working on incorporating this, my favorite of mechanics, into my Modern deck. So far in playtesting at FNMs it is surprisingly effective. If you're planning on playing Madness with Rakdos vampires definitely play a playset of Heir of Falkenrath Flip and/or Furyblade Vampire . Both are great Madness "engines" for your Madness "fuel."

This is now the 3rd revision. In this revision I removed Olivia's Dragoon , Succumb to Temptation , Murderous Compulsion , Abundant Maw , Fiery Temper , Pale Rider of Trostad , Stromkirk Condemned , Vampire Cutthroat , Bloodrage Brawler , Call the Bloodline , Sanguinary Mage , Furyblade Vampire .
Instead more powerful vampires were added as well as cards that were cheaper with a draw mechanic.

Thank you for those options; I keep forgetting just how diverse you can get with Vampire strategies.
Try as I may I keep wanting to go back to Madness; I love the mechanic and people aren't usually expecting it. Plus, it's a built in defense against 8-Rack, aggressive card draws (I won a round in Legacy against a Howling Mine because of Madness) and other disruption.
Could the following list work?
2x Arid Mesa
2x Blood Crypt
4x Bloodghast (playing for 0cmc as discard)
2x Incorrigible Youths (playing for 3cmc madness)
I will work on the sideboard after I've nailed down the main board, which is hard because Vampires don't like being nailed to anything.

Stuff I'd cut:
Duskborne Skymarcher - not enough impact
Erdwal Ripper - bad
Falkenrath Exterminator bad
Furyblade Vampire good for madness but not for this deck
Havengul Vampire not good enough
Kheru Bloodsucker bad
Licia, Sanguine Tribune only good as commander in a deck built around him. Here it's just bad for 8 mana
Nirkana Revenant not bad but not really that useful either since only about a thrid of your lands are swamps anyways
Voracious Vampire bad
Stuff I'd definitely add:
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodline Keeper Flip
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle
Butcher of Malakir
Shadow Alley Denizen
Stuff I'd consider adding:
Bishop of Binding
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Legion's Landing Flip
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Patron of the Vein
Urge to Feed
Blood Baron of Vizkopa
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Voldaren Pariah Flip
Details as for why I'd add certain cards and cut others I'll give you the next time we get to talk :)

This deck has some odd card choices... For starter you aren't running the best red madness card Fiery Temper, replace Alchemist's Greeting and Avacyn's Judgment. You are running Senseless Rage which gives your opponent an easy 2-for-1 when they remove the creature, maybe Stromkirk Occultist or Reckless Wurm to give you an additional threat. I'm not sure why Falkenrath Reaver is here either, nobody would play the Grizzly Bears, when you have options like Furyblade Vampire, Falkenrath Exterminator or Bloodcrazed Neonate. Last thought, If you dropped Doubling Season and ran Volt Charge, Contagion Clasp or Tezzeret's Gambit, proliferate would probably get the job done... Still, you have the beginnings of a deck that could be fun, so I wish you luck with your brew.

Padbras Well since your going for a more aggro approach, I would cut out the Call the Bloodline since it can be slow and is better suited for a tokens approach. I have a deck similar to this and was never able to make Avacyn's Judgment work since it requires quite a bit of mana to really be effective, so I would cut those as well. Not sure how good Incorrigible Youths, Olivia's Bloodsworn and Furyblade Vampire have been for you, but you might look at cutting some of them.
You should really think about adding a 4th Falkenrath Gorger as well, since giving all your vampires Madness is something you want to do every game. Being able to string Falkenrath Gorger into Stromkirk Condemned and Madnessing in Stromkirk Captain on turn three while attacking for 8 First Strike damage can really put you ahead and possibly set you up for a turn 4 win.
Also Unclaimed Territory is a relatively cheap way to fix your mana base.

I've seen many Hollow One variants and play one, but I've never seen one use Measure of Wickedness, I like the idea behind it, but I don't like that you warped the deck slightly (Shriekhorn) to enable it or that it costs 4 to cast... If I was using it, I'd add Furyblade Vampire and cut Grisly Survivor and Shriekhorn, Furyblade is a free discard outlet, with a reasonable upside. Your also running too many creatures with Delve, the normal Hollow One deck which runs fetch lands still only runs 4 delve creature, so -2 Gurmag Angler, -2 Tombstalker +2 Flameblade Adept and +2 Flamewake Phoenix. I'd only use Immortal Coil if I had something like Rakdos Charm (artifact destruction) in the deck, it's a massive risk. I probably prefer Sword-Point Diplomacy and Risk Factor to Dark Deal, which is card disadvantage and can only be played turn 3 when your hand could be almost empty.
Lands, your not running fetches so why run Blood Crypt? Budget wise removing the crypt would more than cover 4x Dragonskull Summit and 4x Foreboding Ruins, importantly this would let you cut the number of swamps. This is essentially a red deck for the first 2 turns, no matter what the colour wheel says, mana sources that don't provide red should be kept to a minimum. If you don't have a red source in your opening hand then you need to muligan.
As I said at the top, I play a version of Hollow One Power 4 is Ferocious, though it also runs Soulflayer as the Delve creature. That meant I had to warp the deck slightly to take full advantage of Soulflayer, basically I need to have access to Double Strike. Initially I went with Prophetic Flamespeaker, it was playable and had relevant abilities, sorted. Not really, I ended up splashing white, no Hollow One deck runs white, green, blue, sure but not white (ok, there is one that uses Lingering Souls). I splashed white for 2 reasons, first Adorned Pouncer, second better sideboard options...
I hope this is of help, have fun and good luck with your brew.
