Knight of the Ebon Legion
Creature — Vampire Knight
: Knight of the Ebon Legion gets +3/+3 and gains deathtouch until end of turn.
At the beginning of your end step, if that player lost 4 or more life this turn, put a +1/+1 counter on Knight of the Ebon Legion. (Damage causes loss of life.)
Knight of the Ebon Legion Discussion

I somehow see Gods Willing , Legion's End and Charge as cards that belong in a side-board. Another card that I would want in the side-board is The Elderspell . Knight of the Ebon Legion has a nice effect that is just too slow and too clumsy to be of much use.
If this leaves you 7 cards short, another Icon of Ancestry is a good idea. 3 each of Bladebrand and Aid the Fallen would give you more answers to what your opponent is likely to do. A set of Scoured Barrens will give you some useful life-gain, which could pump up your Bloodthirsty Aerialist quite nicely.

Thanks for the vote and the question. Knight of the Ebon Legion just lets me get a creature out on turn one. Plus the Knight can become bad news when you start pumping it.

I just get the feeling that Sword-Point Diplomacy or Risk Factor would do more for this deck than Experimental Frenzy . I like the idea of doing some direct damage to put +1/+1 counters on Knight of the Ebon Legion , but you might need a few chump-blockers early in the game. Maybe Bladebrand in place of Light Up the Stage to both reduce your mana-curve and let Viashino Pyromancer also clear out an opponent's creature. I also like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord over Chandra, Fire Artisan

Butcher of Malakir
In: Purphoros, God of the Forge
Included another win condition with Purphoros, God of the Forge in exchange for a really expensive vampire which doesn't help the most important part of the deck.
In: Expedition Map
Took out a costly vampire which has a specific effect for another piece of ramp, which is especially great for some of the utility lands (e.g. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth & Cabal Coffers ).

I like the direction you are taking the deck a lot. I agree with danielisaias about the Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Knight of the Ebon Legion . When I comes to "how many copies should I put in?" My go-to rule of thumb is:
1 copy if you plan on tutoring for it, or only need to see it maybe at some point during the game, (alternate win cards, specific answer cards, etc)
2 copies if you definitely want to see it every game, but don't need it early. (A big late game bomb)
3 copies if you want to guarentee to see it every game, sooner than later (core combo cards)
4 copies if you need the card As soon as possible, preferrably in your opening hand (ground work cards, like mana rocks, early creatures, or land ramp)
To give the deck an extra boost of mana a single copy of Cabal Coffers could be a massive addition. Obviously it is a bit pricey, so it may be a card to look at later.

Hey! I like the deck, and vampires are always fun to play.
Vicious Conquistador , Vampire of the Dire Moon , and Dusk Legion Zealot are great vampire cards that would work really well in this deck. Champion of Dusk can also help you draw more cards and speed up your game quite a bit!

BW has always been a pet colour archetype and I like where this deck is going. A few questions arise thought when reading the decklist. First of all, your deck seems to contain 61 cards, which isn't really recommended. Also, you're running a lot of 3X time cards. I would rather see some cards go, staples of standard such as Hunted Witness or Dauntless Bodyguard , as they have little impact in modern. Better options exist in the current modern card pool such as Doomed Traveler
if you are going for a more aristocrats deck, maybe consider dropping Knight of the Ebon Legion as that card fits more in an agro style deck or vampire synergy.
A simple way to make aristocrats better is to incorporate token generators such as Lingering Souls .
If you're going for a more budget deck, than this is a good start but if you're willing to spend a bit more money in your aristocrat's deck, upgrading your removal package for Path to Exile and Fatal Push is a must-do. Mortify is too expensive (mana wise) and the idea of destroying enchantments isn't that relevant in a metagame that sees no enchantment theme decks. Even though you rejected the idea of buying shock lands due to price, I can assure you that having them in your deck can make a huge difference and is much-welcomed addition. if you're still not interested, consider some Caves of Koilos or Concealed Courtyard as a budget version.
I hope this helps you. I know mtggoldfish post a mardu version of aristocrats a while back so if you wanna be inspired, I recommend giving it a look.
