Hey, very good upgrade of the precon. You don't really need to change anything for this deck to be a winner. However this deck is not aggro, it's midrange since it has 24 cards 4 CMC or higher. That's too many if you want to play aggro Vamps. Something to consider for aggro is cutting some high CMC Vamps/cards for more low CMC Vamps/cards and replacing some lands that can ETB tapped with ones that don't.

Some changes to consider:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, if you want to play aggro with Edgar then I don't think a 10 mana combo, Exquiste + Bond is what you want. Exquiste + Bond goes with a midrange strategy with life gain, not aggro. 24 cards with 4 CMC or higher is a lot for aggro. With this many you risk having too many of them in your opening hand rather than low CMC Vamps.

For aggro consider cutting many four/five drops to decrease the avg. CMC? Patriarch's Bidding and Coat of Arms are five drops to keep because one helps you recover if aggro doesn't work out and the other pushes your Vamp army over the top. Sanctum Seeker, Purphoros, God of the Forge and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are the four drops worth keeping with aggro. In the place of other high CMC cards add more low CMC Vamps/cards especially one drops.

My advice for aggro with Edgar is take more advantage of eminence and going wide with Vamps and Vamp tokens. Lots more one and two drop Vamps. Edgar is really the only high CMC threat you need with aggro. Instead of playing lots of other high CMC cards play Vamps who can be mana sinks. Knight of the Ebon Legion, Guul Draz Assassin and Mirror Entity is a Vamp and it's a way to use lots of mana if you have it to pump your entire army. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Shared Animosity are good repeatable effects with an aggro/go wide strategy.

I offer more advice, good luck with your deck.

ok .Lets see.

at first I would change Vraska the Unseen with Vraska, Golgari Queen , she cost less Mana and you can use the other abilits not just the last.

you need thins that made your creatures Unblockable f.e. Whispersilk Cloak or Lure . If you got a lot of creatures or +1/+1 counters you could play Champion of Lambholt .

Archfiend of Despair is extrem expenssiv but fits perfectly to the topic.

you could cut:

I've only just noticed that there is a nice combi between Filth + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

Overall, this looks pretty well thought out. You've got an AVG CMC under 2 and a pretty classic breakdown, heavy on creatures, light on utilities, and all basic land. So I imagine this gets into gear pretty quick.

How's Guul Draz Assassin been? Seems like a pretty big mana sink for a deck with 20 lands... I'm think you'd get more mileage for overall less mana with Vampire Nighthawk . I imagine Drana, Liberator of Malakir would be pretty strong here, too.

I notice a lot of the spells included here have "when a creature dies" conditionals, but you don't have many ways of forcing that to happen. Opponents might remove your biggest threats and just take damage from smaller deathtouch creatures. So, given this is mono-black, some kind of direct removal in the mainboard seems like it would be useful. Defile , Cast Down , Murder , Doomblade, Go for the Throat , Bone Splinters , Geth's Verdict - you get the idea.

Along those same lines, if sometimes those "dies" conditionals are triggered by your own creatures leaving the battlefield, 1-2x Immortal Servitude will prove devastating to your opponents.

Sign in Blood seems fitting and useful here - I think you'll probably have good chances of gaining back the life lost, and in a pinch, you can use it for a kill.

Possibly useful lands: Cabal Stronghold , Bojuka Bog , Field of Ruin , Scavenger Grounds

Other potentially useful sideboard artifacts: Ratchet Bomb , Pithing Needle , Elixir of Immortality .

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with everyone safely (yes, even that 0/1, why not), untap each creature at the most opportune time for pseudo vigilance, and still deal combat damage in most situations.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (obvious face value of the card), it untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt (great for getting +1+1 counters from Drana, Liberator of Malakir to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain ), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

This combination of full tilt aggro with everyone available to block makes Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 really good here (Note, 'until your next turn') and it more than offsets a few of my next suggestions (as well as a few of your own draw options).

As far as the decks inherent card draw weakness goes, consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , and Herald's Horn . Protecting your board also prevents topdeck mode, assuming you bought the precon, get Teferi's Protection in here.

Night's Whisper , Throne of the God-Pharaoh , and Guul Draz Assassin are my main suggestions for cuts.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration for more low drop vamps, it's one of the top rated Edgar lists on the entire site. There's also over 130 comments worth of feedback and suggestions to sift through for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires
