Yup: Verdant Catacombs, Kalastria Highborn, 2x Blade of the Bloodchief and 2x Bloodghast, plus everything else for 9,90. That made me an happy child C:

Thanks for the upvote seshiro_of_the_orochi.

Indeed, there are no threedrops because of several reasons. Some key twodrops effectively cost 3 if you want them to have an immediate effect on that turn like Kalastria Highborn or Gatekeeper of Malakir. Sometimes you just want to play two cards for 1 + 2 CMC on T3 like Bloodghast and Viscera Seer, or you play a 2 CMC card and leave 1 land untapped for being able to activate Mutavault to use as a defender or for being able to cast Fatal Push as a potential answer on the opponents turn. I found myself using T3 more often than not for one of these combo plays here, but there are more.

The only worthy threedrop I can think off is Liliana of the Veil, but I decided not to run her as explained in the "Noticeable Missing Cards" section.

Vampire Nighthawk is indeed a strong card and I used to run him, but as explained in the "Sideboard choices for difficult match-ups" section: Gifted Aetherborn is slightly better because you want to use these guys against aggressive decks. 1 CMC difference overall is a big thing in Modern, and this is particularly true versus aggressive decks. One might argue Vampire Nighthawk has flying, which is strong mechanic, but once you have Vampire Nocturnus running, you're not missing anything at all.

Nice deck. I play something similar. Have you considered adding Pulse Tracker , Kalastria Highborn , Anowon, the Ruin Sage,Nirkana Revenant and Malakir Bloodwitch to the list? And if you add Whip of Erebos , Bloodchief Ascension as well as Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond you get multiple mid- to late game finisher as well as a possible infinity-combo

Michae1JCaboose Stromkirk Captain Captivating Vampire Bloodghast Kalastria Highborn Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Cavern of Souls Feast of Blood SB Vampire Lacerator Guul Draz Vampire Viscera Seer Shared Animosity Olivia Voldaren should replace liliana, or more kill spells like Terminate or Fatal Push. Vampire Tribal is generally very aggressive and you dont' want you curve to be too high. Dark ritual is not modern legal. replace them, and tragic slip with Lightning Bolt. it'll give you that extra damage push. there are several ways to build BR vamps, but these are usually core cards to work with.

Kalastria Highborn -> Blood Seeker

KH is a good token maker, but BS is great against all the token/creature copy decks in my meta, and maybe in general in EDH.

Kalastria Highborn and Bloodghast are powerful vampires, kalastria especially regarding sac triggers. +1 for vampires.

Usually in an early attack plan deck I choose to have up to eight one drops, not including burn/kill spells such as Lightning Bolt, Lightning Axe or Tragic Slip. Why no Captivating Vampire's? At least one in the maindeck could be helpful, you could always sideboard them out for extra burn against decks with few creatures. Oh, Kalastria Highborn would be absolutely ridiculous alongside a Viscera Seer.
