@BLEATH: Darkest Hour is a bit too expensive for me ATM. as well as some of the tutors... I have a Diabolic Revelation somewhere and I'll work on getting an Increasing Ambition . thank you very much!

@NobleMoose: Orzhov Signet is something I'm looking for! But Sol Ring is out of my price range...

Blasting Station and Darkest Hour plus your commander make for a pretty common combo in Teysa decks.

Also, in any EDH deck, I feel like you should have some kind of tutor. Some include Diabolic Revelation , Diabolic Tutor , Demonic Tutor and Increasing Ambition amongst others.

Did you read the card list before you commented? 1/2 of those card are in the deck list dude as for the others Underworld Dreams : A; wish I still had one. B; triple B in casting cost means it would be at least 4-6 turn before I'll have the mana for it unless I get lots of black and get screwed over on red/blue Psychosis Crawler triggers off my draws not theirs and with Forced Fruition I want every thing to trigger off them drawing not me. Otherworld Atlas seems slow looking at 4 mana then tap to put a counter on it then having it stay out a full turn before you can get 1 draw nah I'll pass (however I'll consider it for my Vorel of the Hull Clade deck) Archaeomancer is better than both Anarchist and Scrivener hell better than Izzet Chronarch but I don't have one on hand I could find but I will look again or look at buying one Wheel of Fate gives them to much warning and they can prepare for it and I'm Lready running Wheel of Fortune , Increasing Ambition costs the most for the fewest cards that's why I cut it for the Diabolic Revelation instead. And Mindmoil would rock if it was target player or all players but just me? No thanks I like to be able to plan and cards like that make it hard and I'm already plaing the puzzle box

Underworld Dreams , Spiteful Visions to help hurt with the draws

Psychosis Crawler also to help hurt with the draws

Otherworld Atlas to get more draw

I'd run Archaeomancer over Anarchist personally, costs less and hits 2 possible things things as opposed to one

Wheel of Fate /Wheel of Fortune could prove useful to you as could Mindmoil

utilize black tutors as well, Diabolic Tutor ,Increasing Ambition ,Diabolic Revelation ,Demonic Tutor etc..

I've been playing skittles a bit more with Increasing Ambition and Diabolic Tutor and to be honest, I'm not that impressed. I never really needed to tutor for anything simply because of how the deck works, I generally have what I need in hand. Im thinking about possibly grabbing a sword to replace Mirrorworks , not sure which one though

TitansFTW on Curse of Echoes and Increasing ...

Colgate is incorrect. First, the Increasing Ambition is cast from the graveyard, so it would get the caster 2 cards. Then the spell is copied by Curse of Echoes . The copy will have the exact same characteristics of the copied spell, such as whether or not the original was cast from the graveyard, similar to how X-values are copied. Therefore, each player will search for 2 cards.

If a player is enchanted with Curse of Echoes and casts Increasing Ambition from the graveyard, do the other players get to search for 2 cards or 1 card?

If you want to speed it up, you should try and lower the mana curve to around 1,2, and 3 costing spells. As cool as Blood Tribute and Sanguine Bond are together, thats not happening until turn 6 (or later) whereas you can usually end the game at the same time or even faster if you don't rely on them. The deck needs to apply pressure as fast as turn one, 4 Stromkirk Noble is extremely good.

I would personally drop Blood Tribute , Increasing Ambition , Sanguine Bond , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Falkenrath Noble , Heirs of Stromkirk , Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet , Necropolis Regent , Nirkana Revenant , and maybe even Captivating Vampire simply for their costs.

Some replacements are Bloodghast , Vampire Nocturnus , Olivia Voldaren , and maybe Gatekeeper of Malakir (triple black might be hard but could be doable with some Dragonskull Summit .

Both or either Vampire Nocturnus and Olivia Voldaren are pretty massive in vampire decks. Heres another synergy to consider. Turn 3 Buried Alive for Bloodghast into a Vampire Nocturnus . Olivia Voldaren just demands an answer or wins the game alone.

Geth's Verdict , and Go for the Throat are some solid removal to consider as well.

Hopefully this is helpful in some way. You have to consider the fact that the opposing deck won't give you until turn 5 or 6 to set up your creatures. Price
