I would recommend Sphinx's Tutelage and Jace's Erasure along with Liliana Vess, the first two because they are freaking awesome and the third because if you ult her, you're using most of your opponent's creatures.

If you have someone that has graveyard shenanigans you might want Bojuka Bog after they sacrifice their creature so they can't get it back.

Another land you could use is Crypt of Agadeem, say after you're done sacrificing your non vampires you can get a lot of mana or even use it after a board wipe.

More cards you can use ill save the explaining- Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Ascendant Evincar, Defiant Bloodlord, Stromkirk Condemned, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Heirloom Blade, Bloodchief Ascension, Phyrexian Reclamation, Liliana Vess.

So Liliana Vess isnt standard legal, I assume it is supposed to be Liliana, Death's Majesty instead. Other than that minor issue, the deck looks pretty solid. Anointed Procession would probably fit nicely but is pretty expensive right now, although I dont forsee the price dropping. Essence Extraction might be worth looking into since that little bit of life gain can keep some aggro decks off your back long enough to get going. The only other card I would suggest would be Hour of Glory it removes gods like nothing and keeps embalm/eternalize things gone forever too.

Hey thanks for the suggestions pskinn01. My main trouble for this deck currently is in finding space to fit everything I had wanted too in. If you have any other suggestions that you can think of later on I would appreciate more.

I will keep these two in mind for when I next make edits to this deck. I do really like Mycoloth and if I ever up the creature count over some planeswalkers this will be going in. I actually use to have all the praetors in this deck as well but I took them out, however your 'goodstuff' version of Atraxa does tempt me to put them back. I don't currently own this entire thing in paper yet but i'm getting there as I just need 10 more cards, and most recently I had just acquired the Jace, the Mind Sculptor, Teferi, Temporal Archmage, Rhystic Study, Liliana Vess for this deck.

Also thanks for the upvote!

Thanks for your feedback!

Brainspoil and Dimir Machinations had been in a prior version of this deck, and were purged alongside most other traditional tutors--originally, more tutors were used, but they were too inefficient to justify the card slot. In retrospect, this was a tad unfair to the two above cards, given their three mana tutoring effects and potential for other uses in a pinch. I am going to give both another shot. Azusa, Lost but Seeking is out--in theory, her land ability works well with the number of fetch lands in this deck, but the chances of drawing either Crucible of Worlds or Ramunap Excavator is low, and neither is worth wasting a tutor on. Jace, Unraveler of Secrets is also out--his mana cost is simply too high.

Liliana Vess is a tad slow for my taste. Effectively, she is a 5 mana tutor that does not give me the option of casting the card I need in the same turn as the tutor.

Liliana Vess might be worth considering too.

Just some 'strictly better' additions (because I run a modern deck using Silumgar as the main win condition). Diabolic Tutor can be replaced by Liliana Vess, who costs more but has way more utility. Expropriate is good with the flavour of the deck.

IMO Twincast can be replaced by Misdirection but that's purely personal preference, and I tend to prefer Telling Time or Serum Visions over Impulse.

Last thing, 33 lands not enough in a commander deck with no accelerants. I would suggest cutting some of your expensive mill effects like Sire of Stagnation for some basic lands.

But still, +1 for Silumgar!
