Legion's Landing Discussion

@Flyboarg, I go back and forth on Yahenni. I could go for more three drops, but Yahenni just seems to conditional. Yes it potentially gets huge, and if I was doing the boardwipe deck I drafted up on paper I would probably have it as a playset. But when it comes down to it, a 2/2 that only buffs itself for three doesn't fit a go-wide strat. I already have a couple so I plan on leaving them in while I build, but I don't know if they make the final cut.
@Apex_killjoy02, Vamps is a lifegain deck. Even without my tokens, I have 12 ways to gain life. Having a champion refill my hand turn six after I played everything really helps to close out the game. Duskborne Skymarcher fills a very interesting role in the deck. It is surprisingly common to go turn 1: Legion's Landing Flip, turn 2 any two of Duskborne Skymarcher, Vicious Conquistador, Skymarcher Aspirant, turn three swing to flip LL into Adanto, the First Fort and play a four drop or two two drops, or heck even activating Adanto. I want to make sure I have enough one drops to make that consistently possible. Plus, if I have out a Legion Lieutenant or Sanctum Seeker, it's getting at least two damage in the air in every turn. Sometimes this deck, or decks like it, get into board stalls pretty quick and that flying chip damage really adds up. (I also have a bit of a soft spot for any art done by Seb McKinnon ever since my first attempt at competitive magic was a Debt to the Deathless deck)

For your one drop consideration, I like Shapers' Sanctuary and Legion's Landing Flip. Greenbelt Rampager's greatest strength came on turn 2 after a turn 1 Attune with Aether, which we are now missing. However, since you are going with a revolt subtheme, the elephant could still be very useful late game as you simply blink Aethergeode Miner with your built up energy to keep the elephant from sticking.
I will point out that the elephant and Bristling Hydra do not play well together if you are trying to abuse bouncing the elephant.

I gotta say, I think you're grossly underestimating Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle. He's been nothing but stellar in every game I've used him.
I think you might be right about Legion's Landing Flip though. The deck started out having a focus on city's blessing, so getting 2 permanents for 1 mana that was also within the tribal link made it a lot more valuable.
That also frees up a bit of the mana constraint we had that kept us from using Gifted Aetherborn. It's still not perfect... We need 14 white sources that won't come into play tapped in order to be 90% sure we can cast Skymarcher Aspirant t1. We need 20 black sources in order to have 90% confidence for Aetherborn t2. It's tough to accommodate that in a deck with so few lands, but I think it could be workable...

Of the removal options you mentioned, I think I like Ixalan's Binding the most. I like how it's unconditional removal that often takes a threat out of the game. I expect Torrential Gearhulk decks to become dominant after the bans, so being able to stop them from using more than one of them is going to be valuable. I also think Hazoret, The Scarab God, and Glorybringer will still be very strong options, which makes me like Ixalan's Binding even more.
I'll add a few plains in for now. It does seem weird not to be running them, but I think especially if I get rid of Legion's Landing Flip like I'm considering, I'll have sufficient white sources at any point I could be hit by Settle the Wreckage

I love tribal decks, but I think your maybe running into a problem I had with my first commander deck. I think you are spread thin on your win condition. I think if you want to fill the board with vampires and tokens then go all out on tokens. With that I want to give a few recommendationsCall to the Feast and Legion's Landing Flip. After getting all the vamps on the field you might as well buff them with Coat of Arms.

Hey, thanks for the suggestions! Definitely added a few of those to the maybeboard. I'm not too interested in an infinite combo for this deck, since that's not really the speed of my playgroup. I can loop Mangara of Corondor with a sac outlet and Phyrexian Reclamation if need be, and the oodles of tokens I create are not quite infinite but definitely enough to remove any other creature from the board and any life out of opponents' totals, when combined with Dictate of Erebos and a few aristocrats.
That's basically why I didn't fully go for the vampire tribal - Edgar doesn't make quite as many tokens as other non-vampire cards do, and I wanted more of an aristocrat deck than a go wide and tall with vampires deck. The tokens very rarely attack, but Edgar/Vish Kal/Drana/Licia is plenty powerful with a Blade of the Bloodchief and Whispersilk Cloak when you sac 20 zombies, then sac 20 spirits, then swing and give lifelink while Sanguine Bond is up.
I'm really liking the look of Phyrexian Altar, Bloodcrazed Paladin and Indulgent Aristocrat though. Might need to cut something to make room for those. Also thinking of swapping the Crypt Ghast out for Nirkana Revenant, or just putting both in and tripling my mana. I also like Legion's Landing Flip but I used to run Trading Post which serves the same purpose but is more versatile. Cut for Ashnod's Altar at the moment.
