Malakir Bloodwitch Discussion
2 weeks ago
Malakir Bloodwitch might have a place here--there's enough Vampires to keep it active, even if it's not overwhelming.
I think Puppeteer Clique might work, but the art's a little ambiguous.
Bitterblossom gives you more expendable sacrifice fodder or blockers. Or attackers, if you get enough.
Glissa Sunseeker should join too. Everybody runs artifacts.

Overall, your list resembles the way mine looked a few versions ago.
I noticed a weak link that I personally cut almost immediately:
Blood Baron of Vizkopa. The reason being his true power is so situational to activate that it's nigh impossible to achieve in a game. I'd recommend Malakir Bloodwitch in its place. Same P/T, same CMC (but only one color), stil has protection from white, and swaps flying in for lifelink. The big difference is she swaps protection from black and the situational buff for a (potentially) huge life drain effect. I have literally won games with her.
The next thing I noticed is two cards I tried for awhile and eventually cut due to them under-performing:
Falkenrath Exterminator and Mathas, Fiend Seeker. I wanted to like Exterminator, but his ability just seemed to weak in the long run. If it read "deals damage equal to its power" instead of "equal to the number of +1/+1 counters." I often got him big, but he'd only have maybe three or four counters on him at best. I'd recommend Guul Draz Assassin in his place. Cheaper to play, and the level-up mechanic gives you a mana sink if you've got leftovers at the end of your turn. Matahs was simply to group hugs for as aggro as we want the deck to be. Nobody ever took the bait of the bounty to remove what I wanted, and I found I could better use the slot. Try Shared Animosity in its place. It fits our aggro theme, and with the tokens Edgar generates easily buffs your whole team by +3/+0 or more per swing.

I like the idea of a vampire subtheme, it unintentionally works very well with what I feel like you're trying to do, and there's a ton of great support and synergy from the precon and ixalan stuff.

It's such a pain to play against. I love it. I hate it. Here are some ideas: Necropolis Regent is just sick. Bloodline Keeper Flip is damn-near broken and still affordable. Champion of Dusk is such a good way to refill your hand. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is $$$, but extremely powerful. Malakir Bloodwitch can straight win games. And finally, Olivia Voldaren is probably my favorite vampire of all time. I think you might want more card draw in the form of Phyrexian Arenas and stuff to keep your gas going strong through the late-game. Keep kicking ass with us! :D

Hey it's me from untap, Ok so mono-black vamps is fun and can get crazy. Cards to consider - Pulse Tracker, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Lacerator, Guul Draz Vampire, Vampire Cutthroat, Bloodghast, Malakir Bloodwitch and there are tons of other dudes to look into. Also, Sign in Blood is black card draw. As is Night's Whisper.

With hydras you will want a lot of ramp so of course Sol Ring but then look at the key runes and signets Golgari Signet Orzhov Keyrune. I would look to replace Druid of the Cowl with better options like Elvish Mystic or Fyndhorn Elves. Terramorphic Expanse and Command Tower will help with color fixing. Black Market is great ramp in black.

Considering your creature costs, Walkers and Bloodchief Ascension, I would drop Malakir Bloodwitch for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. No,it's not a Vampire, but will turbo boost the win using your devotion rather than your creature count.
I'm also concerned about the land base. It seems very low. I would suggest 2 more land for the number of 4+ cost spells you're slingin'. It works well together, just needs a slight trim.
I run a monoB vamp casual deck and with so much deathtouch through Aetherborn and Nighthawk, removal can be sideboarded for more go-wide decks. I would suggest SB the 2x Doom Blade and add 2 more land of your budget choice.

Oh Phyrexian Reclamation is awesome, but like you said it's not gonna work all that well against boardwipes. The thing about that card is that it's cheap as hell, and since the creature goes to your hand, you can then cast it and get those sweet free bodies. I would add that card as well. Trust me, your opponents will not like seeing a Malakir Bloodwitch being looped over and over.
