Hey, keeping your overall deck heavy black is good, the right direction, because of the low budget white and red are better as splashes mostly just for Edgar. You have about $50 to spend before you reach $100. All my card suggestions will cost half that. For the manabase consider a few more budget dual lands?

Can cut basic Mountains and Plains for these dual lands.

Most of my Vampire suggestions are one and two drop Vamps because I think you need more of them since they give you board presence faster because of eminence. The 10 budget Vampires to consider including:

Adding all these additional cards will cost about $24. This leaves another $20+ for a few higher end cards with Edgar such as Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Shared Animosity . Good luck with your deck.

Favorite kind of deck! My forte. See: Bloodghast , Blood Artist , Viscera Seer , Grave Pact , Kalastria Highborn . These type of cards help you while you and your opponent sacrifice. More on that here:

borjaambroce - It is most assuredly possible! With that focus in mind, I would cut all of the aristocrats cards you're currently running that wouldn't advance your new plan!

Aristocrat Cuts Show

There are also a fair number of cards in your list that I have personally tried that have under-performed.

Finally, there are a handful of cards that don't fall into either previous category that I think warrant discussion.

Hey, nice upgrade of the precon, but you need more Vamps, less of all the other stuff :) Good job cutting Powerstone for Lantern, that was the right choice since your deck is three colors.

Edgar's eminence is a major reason to play him as a Commander and to take more advantage of eminence consider more low CMC Vamps? One drops, two drops and a couple of three drops? The idea is to have more opportunities to play Vamps in the early game which then in return gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each Vamp you cast gives you a 1/1 Vamp token.

Budget Vamps ($5 or less each) consider adding:

You already have your high CMC Vamp to play, six drop Edgar from the Command Zone therefore you don't need a lot of other high CMC creatures. Instead cut back on the high CMC Vamps five CMC or higher for lower CMC Vamps make it easier to have more Vamps on the battlefield which in return makes Edgar's ability better, to have more Vamps to add counters too. If you like some of these suggestions I offer help to make cuts.

Shared Animosity and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are two expensive price, but powerful cards with Vamps and Edgar.


Some budget lands ($5 or less each) to consider adding:

These can replace lands here that ETB (enter the battlefield) tapped such as Orzhov Guildgate, Boros Guildgate, Akoum Refuge, etc.

Good luck with your deck.

Really not a fan of Resourceful Return when you have this few artifacts.

I also think you should cut a bit down an the sheer volume of your lategame combo. With this many pieces it could easily end up clogging up your game-plan early on, leading to a loss before you get properly set up.

Meybe get those Gifted Aetherborn to a 4-of, and get a few Kalastria Highborn , maybe even get a Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet .

Also, Inquisition of Kozilek and/or Thoughtseize are key to beating combo decks.

Hi! Just some ideas. Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for mana base. Phyrexian Arena for card draw. Erebos, God of the Dead - indestructible card draw. Dictate of Erebos - great combo: Yahenni, Undying Partisan/Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet + Bloodghast + Blood Artist/Kalastria Highborn. Vraska's Contempt - a very promising removal. Metallic Mimic, Adaptive Automaton, Bad Moon or Vanquisher's Banner to boost your creatures.
