Legion Lieutenant Discussion

So far, I've added Legion Lieutenant, Path to Exile and reduced the number of Aether Vials down to 2 to act as additional "Sorins" for his ultimate ability. I'm thinking I may go the route of Blade of the Bloodchief if I stick to the Cordial Vampires plan.

vampires don't want Aether Vial. you'd be better off using Blade of the Bloodchief and removal. without more removal, your Cordial Vampire is being wasted. add white for Legion Lieutenant, which is way better than Stromkirk Condemned. same cmc, same pt, but the buff is permanent and doesn't require discarding a card.

Thirsting Bloodlord is a bit too expensive for my taste...
in my (limited) experience with Pioneer, even though it is slower than Modern, it is still too fast-paced for a 4 CMC Lord...

for a Aggro deck, this deck seems to have a very high cmc average. personally I would load it up with 1 drops and 2 drops and keep a few bombs (read: lords) in the deck that pump your vampire army. my edgar deck, found here: Edgar Markov, Lord of Clan Markov is 2.49 cmc average, which is very low. I do like your inclution of Athreos however is brilliant, I think I'll add him to mine as well, since he's only 3 cmc. Legion Lieutenant is a cheap and great vampire lord to include. creatures I suggest removing: Vampire Nocturnus 3 black mana is very demanding for a 3 color deck, especialy if it only buffs your creatures some of the time. Olivia Voldaren this creature is a magnet for removal and costs a lot of mana investment to be worth it. Captivating Vampire is just better and cheaper. Butcher of Malakir and Anowan, the Ruin Sage are very good if not dealkth with, but like Olivia, they are very frowned upon and you will be targeted hard when you play them, which is why I opt not to do it. instead I play small creatures then just create a huge army very quickly. you will also want a way to givve your creatures haste, like Hammer of Purphoros and Anger . if you don't have a way to put it into the graveyard just keep attacking with it until they are forced to kill it. Coat of Arms is very bad. if any of your opponents are playing trial, it buffs their creatures too, instead consider things like Shared Animosity and for protection and evasion, consider adding Eldrazi Monument which makes all your creatures indestructible and gain flying. if you really want planes walkers, I would add Sorin Markov instead of the sorin you have now for his -3 ability. when you cast him, -3 him right away putting your most dangerous opponent to 10 life right away. it also gives them another target besides you to focus on, if they don't deal with him, you +2 him again on your next turn and then the turn after that someone else is on 10 life. I hope this helps a bit or gives you some suggestions. have a look at my deck linked above if you like. I will be adding some of your things to my deck now, like Athreos.

Knight of the White Orchid is neat.
There is a vampires theme option for this kind of list- Bloodcrazed Paladin , Forerunner of the Legion , Legion Lieutenant , Olivia, Mobilized for War , Paladin of Atonement etc. This is neat in that it lets you run a lot of lord effects, even if there is a little awkwardness in the non-vampire slots.
