Haakon, Stromgald Scourge Discussion

I'm not sure how well it works since it gives you some hoops to jump through but Haakon, Stromgald Scourge could give your Changelings... I mean Knights some safety in the form of recursion.

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge is a beast with changelings, especially with Nameless Inversion and Crib Swap . You need to play Liliana of the Veil and/or Collective Brutality , however, so he's not a dead card when you draw him.

I like this idea- I've been testing Changeling Outcast / Basal Sliver / Haakon, Stromgald Scourge and it looks decent- brood birthing into hand is an interesting backup combo that already uses pieces I'm playing. Red offers Skirk Prospector and green Utopia Mycon for backup pieces. Sacrificing tokens lets me stack gravestorm triggers for disruption, which might be amazing in combo matchups.
If you are looking to stay in mono-red, there is enough filtering with Faithless Looting / Cathartic Reunion / Magmatic Insight etc to set up a combo, the only quesion is what to cast with it. Anihilator one turn one is enough to cut people off lands in a lot of situations, so I'd look at Crack the Earth / Boom to shut your opponent off lands.

Not Black, because that seems too easy.
Emrakul, the Moon
Legendary Artifact Creature - Eldrazi
Flying, Trample, Indestructible
When Emrakul, the Moon, enters the battlefield, if you cast Emrakul from your hand, you gain control of each opponent until your next turn.
I love low-cost commanders Selvala, Explorer Returned , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Aminatou, the Fateshifter , and my expensive ones are Obzedat, Ghost Council , Elenda, the Dusk Rose Samut, Voice of Dissent , and Shalai, Voice of Plenty . I want to cast my commander easily and often. Emrakul also would just get Path to Exile , Chaos Warp , Swords to Plowshares , Anguished Unmaking , etc. upon the etb trigger. This is wayyy too much of a bogeyman for my taste. my Playgroup already knows to kill commanders on sight, but this is the most obvious ever.
Also, I love White, and colorless seems like a nightmare.

Adriana, Captain of the Guard - Brienne
Queen Marchesa - Cersei
Protector of the Crown - The Mountain
Haakon, Stromgald Scourge - The Mountain Undead
Garrulous Sycophant - Little Finger
Skyline Despot - Drogon
Tolsimir, friend to wolfes - Ned Stark
Wall of Frost - The great Wall

KaiyanK Hi, I've played mono-black a whole bunch. Zombies is an interesting tribe with some cool options.
Right now you are setup as a slow aggro deck- the traditional fix to that is to become a fast aggro deck. You can pack a decent disruption package and zombie making enchantments to become more midrange so long as you pack card advantage tools. The important part is looking over your options and picking cards that work well together. I have a big list of mono black stuff I've made work in modern. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox
Key options are;
Zombie Infestation +discard/graveyard shenanigans
Gurmag Angler best zombie in the format
Mikaeus, the Unhallowed easy combo fuel, if you can reach six mana
Languish Budget damnation dodged by big creatures.

I haven't taken the time to look through and find many of the combos, but it looks like you've got some actual Magic: the Gathering gameplay happening in this deck. If that's the goal, then why put Haakon, Stromgald Scourge in the command zone? He can ONLY be cast from the graveyard.

I have a few vamps lists in the back catalogue. I've tended towards mono-black because I like to pretend to be 'the rack' for bad matchups, but I've played with mardu too.
The big question is what payoff you are looking at. You can go anywhere from pure aggro to midrange value, and since so many of the pieces work well together, the majority of options are viable.
If you have even a modest collection of vamps you can always bring something fresh to FNM which plays off the same manabase and uses the same hand disruption. This means that there is a vamps list that will work well in practically any meta, and sitting down against vamps you could be facing almost anything from pure 'small vamps/discard/burn' aggro right up to 'solemnity/unlife/ad nausiem/blood baron'.
I'm gonna try and give a quick overview of sets of cards and what they do. None of these sets are perfect, so tournament play is patchy, but some may sit in your local meta in a dominant position- use judgement and don't be scared to mix and match.
With all the small lifelinkers ( Indulgent Aristocrat , Gifted Aetherborn , Vampire Cutthroat do a lot). You play a very grindy game going over most aggro with lifelink and under most midrange with sac value. Card filtering makes a lot of value here, and things like Bloodghast / Faithless Looting (despite the meta being all graveyard hate all the time) put a lot of work in.
Madness vamps has Bloodghast engines and obscenities like Olivia, Mobilized for War / Haakon, Stromgald Scourge for vampire knight tribal, and similar 'high synergy/bad combo' setups can pack massive amounts of hand disruptiuon while cheap lifelink/deathtouch gums up the board.
Gaining a lot of life with more disruption into cards like Blood Baron of Vizkopa / Elusive Tormentor Flip is also viable, if you are comfortable executing a more old-school control list in your meta.
