Gifted Aetherborn Discussion

Gifted Aetherborn won't be following the rest of the deck post rotation.
so outside of having a tutor effect and bishop the deck is mostly vampires to be vampires? What if you tried the deck with more of a knight theme, Danitha Capashen, Paragon could make 2/3rds of your combo cost cheaper (History of Benalia is very good for putting a fast clock). The 2 cmc hexproof knights also do beats well.
On Serra's Wings can provide lifelink redundancy, Shalai, Voice of Plenty can protect your famished knight from being blown out with 2 for 1's when you go to build the combo. Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle(and/or Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants) could also work well when you go to cast a wand and they killed your famished, make the deck legendary heavy enough and Mox Amber could be a legitimate mana rock!
(continued ramblings as this comment maybe half asleep written)

If you want to reliably t1 discard spell, I'd add 2-3x Thoughtseize.
Control decks can't survive in modern without planeswalkers. Jace is your best bet, but Liliana, the Last Hope is also great.
Finally, 11 swamps in a deck like this is just crazy. Add in 8-10 fetchlands, especially with 4 [!] Obliterators. You also want basic islands in the event you get path'd. I'd cut 1-2 Obliterators if you want to keep them in, and 1-2 Gearhulks for some alternatives like Gifted Aetherborn, Gatekeeper of Malakir, etc
I'm also brewing a dimir control deck for modern. Glad to see the idea getting fleshed out. Cheers!

+1 for Edgar Markov, one of the most badass Vamp Boss around.
I'd recommend lowering the CMC of the deck to around 3 or less if able to hasten the pace at which your treats hit the board.
Some useful vampires you can consider:
Dusk Legion Zealot and 1 life for 2 1/1 bodies and 1 card, pretty good deal.
Gifted Aetherborn An uncommon with Deathtouch, Lifelink, with P/T of 2/3 for just , nuff said.
Legion Lieutenant Vampire Lord is sexy.
Vampire Hexmage a.k.a Planeswalker Nemesis!
Viscera Seer one of my all time favorite, Sac outlet and Scry in 1 card.

We just built my son a tribal vampire commander waiting for some cards to fill in for mana. Vampires have a lot that stacks with Sanguine Bond add in Drana's Emissary, Cliffhaven Vampire, Gifted Aetherborn and a ton more with lifelink, Sanctum Seeker which with the token spam can get crazy add in Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Bloodline Keeper Flip and Olivia Voldaren to steal creatures as vampire and attack them with their own creature. That is not even counting Vampire Envoy
All that will help stack with that combo you can have some crazy fun with Vampire tribal

Thanks lagotripha i dig the suggestions! Gifted Aetherborn and Lifelink creatures would be outstanding in here; ill look more into that. I never heard of Dark Intimations but like it! i'll try it out over Smallpox and see how i like it.... definitely makes me wanna run Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker if i go that rout just for the flavor/style points....great input thanks again!

If you're looking to do budget ultimatum, and play grindy rather than combo, slap lifelink on your creatures.
By focussing in on B(r) with Raven's crime and extra hand disruption, and running creatures like Gifted Aetherborn/Indulgent Aristocrat/Vampire Cutthroat alongside discard outlets like Call the Bloodline, you can play like a low-key grindy creature midrange right up until you land your combo.
It also lets you go down to just two islands, vastly simplifying the manabase- which can be further eased by judicious use of Pentad Prism. You can also look at Dark Intimations as a mini-ultimatum and card advantage engine.
