Inspiring Cleric Discussion

Lost_0ne It is a possibility, but I usually prefer to use my taplands on turn 1- Having white mana untapped t1 is difficult, which is why I may even swap out the Authorities in the sideboard to Inspiring Cleric or the like.

There are a few cards that confuse me such as Inspiring Cleric, Sanguine Sacrament, and Heroes Remembered. These life gain effects just don't seem nearly as impactful as something like Debt to the Deathless or other drain effects.

first of all I like the low mana curve of your deck. This is how Edgar Markov should be played!
Skullclamp was already mentioned. It is the most important inclusion in your deck, I think. It's your draw engine in combination with the tokens.
You could consider Blood Bairn, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bloodthrone Vampire, Vampire Aristocrat and Viscera Seer. The first four give you an advantage in combat and the Viscera Seer gives you card selection which is desperately needed in mardu. All are good with Skullclamp. Take out Skymarch Bloodletter, Bloodmad Vampire, Inspiring Cleric, Olivia's Dragoon, Ravenous Bloodseeker or Sanguinary Mage. Or take out Gifted Aetherborn and Tithe Drinker because they're difficult to cast on turn 2 consistently.
Carnival of Souls could be a great tool for an aggro deck in a 1vs1 format. I think it will really spice things up in your deck!
you should invest some money in your mana base, so that you're able to cast your spells consistently on turn 1,2 and 3. For example fetches, shocks, Dragonskull Summit, Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat and Unclaimed Territory.

the main reason for taking out a Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle out and replacing it with a Yahenni, Undying Partisan is that Yahenni has the ability to stick to the board, and since it's a legendary and you can only have 1 of those cards on the field at a given time is important. Also, if you're going for a budget build (was just trying to make it more efficient, didn't look at much cost) I'd at least recommend 4 Bishop's Soldiers, the reason you at least want 4 of either of them is A. 2 drop with lifelink, B. (just for the gifted) you get a 2/3 for 2, automatic value, with the addition of deathtouch. So you get a cheap and efficient body.
To address the comment on vampire generation, 3 or 4 Call to the Feast is auto, with Queen's Commission is a good way as well. The deck is also an aggro focus, Duskborne Skymarcher just isn't a good one drop, meanwhile in black, Vicious Conquistador is a 1 drop with black mana that immediately has an extra toughness, AND deals confirmed damage to the opponent, and it doesn't add a nickel to the cost. Inspiring Cleric also has alot of extra potential for a different 3 drop. Hell, drop them to make a 2, 3, or 4 set of Essence Extraction, the vampires with lifelink will give you health, sanguine sacrament gives you a MAJOR bonus in early and late game, and overall it's not the greatest body ever. 4 health can be good, but you'll gave so much lifegain off of tokens you're not gonna need it.
And as a final note: Forsaken Sanctuary got a reprint i did not catch, the card had art from SoI, and I didn't remember it in Amonket at all. (maybe cause I skipped it over and played red black till ramunap red caught on). That card can be useful, and you can put it in the deck so save cash. That's a fault on my part. (but yes, max is 4. And if you're going budget, may be a good replace with Concealed Courtyard)

Adderite, I'm putting this together for laid back non-competetive play. Also, I'm trying to keep it budget.To address a couple of things: I like having Duskborne Skymarcher and Inspiring Cleric to have extra vampires to throw down to combo with Bishop of the Bloodstained and Sanctum Seeker.Why would I take out a Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and replace with another Yahenni, Undying Partisan?
Also, I don't necessarily see the desire for more Gifted Aetherborn, and my reasoning for going with other vampires is mainly budget.
Also, the sidebar on my deck is telling me that this deck is Standard legal, so I'm a bit confused on who to trust since you're saying Forsaken Sanctuary isn't legal (although I'm inclined to trust that I can't have 8 since its not a basic land).
I appreciate the advice and your reference deck looked like a similar strategy for me to refer to.

4x Legendary creature is a little too much. Try 2x Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle 2x Vona, Butcher of Magan and consider Bishop's Soldier Bishop of the Bloodstained. Also Bishop of Rebirth is useless if you can't bring back creatures. Try Duskborne Skymarcher Gifted Aetherborn and Inspiring Cleric

take out Ashes of the Abhorrent Bright Reprisal Duskborne Skymarcher Inspiring Cleric Ritual of Rejuvenation Sword-Point Diplomacy and Walk the Plank, if you're going for more removal take out Walk the Plank and add 2 or 3 more Essence Extraction, take out 1 Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and add in 1 more Yahenni, Undying Partisan, add in 1 more Sanguine Sacrament and add in 4 Call to the Feast and 2 Queen's Commission, you also NEED to take out Forsaken Sanctuary, that card is illegal in standard now, and you have 8 over the limit to boot. You also need a playset (not just two) of Gifted Aetherborn and a total of 3 Legion's Landing Flip, to finish this off put in a playset of Concealed Courtyard and put in 2 Vona, Butcher of Magan
If you want a reference, I made this deck here specifically for competitive play: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/the-fang-quisition/
Hope the tips help, hope the decklist i linked helped, GL.

Cut Vanquisher's Banner, Adanto Vanguard, and Inspiring Cleric to increase Anointed Procession and add Sacred Cat. Going broader, increasing 1 drops, and reducing average CMC. Particularly cutting the number of 5 drops (theoretically- to an effective 0).
