my strategy for making your deck faster is:

  1. putting in more cheap vampires as this synergises with your commander more: Insolent Neonate, Kheru Mind-Eater, Guul Draz Assassin, Viscera Seer, Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Bairn, Vampire Aristocrat, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Malakir Cullblade. This way you can swarm the board early while en passant generating tokens, then attack with Edgar Markov on turn 6.

  2. putting in some ultra aggressive cards. Alongside tokens Mercadia's Downfall can be devastating, for example. Another one would be Mirror Entity. Note that this one is also a vampire and that the +1/+1-counters stay on the creatures when you change their base power and toughness.

  3. cutting some of the more expenise and non-aggressive cards: Campaign of Vengeance, Stensia Masquerade and maybe you should reduce your lifegain/-loss subtheme if you want to go the faster route. Also Vanquisher's Banner is cool tech, but at 5 mana it may be too expensive

By the way: a card that can go absolutely crazy in token tribal decks is Mana Echoes. Unfortunately it is no budget card.

bushido_man96 mentioned some mass removals. Their asymetrical effect is nice but they also cost a lot of mana. Some other really good asymmetrical mass removals for token decks would be Austere Command, Fell the Mighty, Retribution of the Meek and Dusk.

That's all for now. Let me know what you think of my faster game plan.

would Blood Seeker, Malakir Cullblade, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Sangromancer, Ob Nixilis, Unshackled, Shadows of the Past and Eternal Thirst fit into the deck, to gain benefits from your opponents tokens dying?

Casey4321: Throne of the God-Pharaoh seems like a good idea! Living Death seems like I can't bias it enough in my favor...Whip of Erebos is great, and I already have Patriarch's Bidding :)

Lythia: Malakir Cullblade is just bad tho...

Love the deck!

The Thornbite Staff + Vampire Nighthawk combo is stellar.

+1 for that combo alone.

This deck idea is fantastic, but it could certainly get filled out.

If you want to pump your Vampire Nighthawk while you are wiping the field, I would recommend Blade of the Bloodchief; definitely a no-brainer.

If you want to go creature heavy, focus on cards that benefit from things dying and swing for lethal.Cards such as:

If you want to be pure effect based, something like Blood Artist would provide a positive life-net while you're also slowly eating away at your opponents.

I am probably going to throw together my own idea for this deck; if it's alright with you, of course!

I have a few suggestions that I think would help speed this deck up and make it even deadlier than it already is.

Cards I think you could live without:

My first suggestion is to add 4 or 5 more land. 31 land is very low, especially for a four color build, and missing land drops will hinder your game plan significantly.

Land suggestions:

Second suggestion is to consider more mana ramp. Having great ramp is essential to a quick, efficient start. Starting off slow will usually get you killed.

Ramp suggestions:

Third suggestion is cards I like for this theme. Just a few badass toys for your deck to mess around with.

Fun card suggestions:

After adding Grimoire of the Dead to reduce overall mana cost, I begain toying with the idea of Contagion Clasp. I've been wanting to add Retribution of the Ancients for a while and it could be used to take advantage of the proliferate. Problem is not much in Black fits the theme of aging ungracefully and insanely and includes +1/+1 counters. I have Unbreathing Horde, but I'd have to wait until I got zombie tokens for it to be useful and Butcher Ghoul for it's undying and potential recursion interaction but other than that, it sucks. I am tempting to add Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet because it a) gives me a sack outlet, b) creates tokens for use with Contamination and Descent into Madness and c) could be super pumped to use with Retribution of the Ancients. However, it doesn't really fit the theme (although the storyline includes quotes from him concerning mindlessness) so does it break the theme too much just to make the deck more competitive? What do you think dryadson?

I also have a copy of Malakir Cullblade for counters but it doesn't really fit the theme either.
