RumAndCoke on Pleezer With A Prateor

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.

w/b budget modern warriors is an interesting Idea. I'd reccomend increasing the number of 1drops (duress over castigate) but the number of relevant non red/green warriors in modern is almost just tarkir block Vampire Lacerators and Nezumi Shadow-Watcher only work so well, even abusing Shields of Velis Vel to make stuff ninjas.

Sideboard in disruption and protection, and run a substantial amount mainboard- Duress, Vendetta, Despise, Condemn, Ratchet Bomb, Pithing Needle, Tormod's Crypt etc depending on meta. If you can build a solid creature engine mainboard, the rest is just stopping your opponent winning. I'd reccomend a bunch of removal and Malakir Cullblade/Seeker of the Way, as they synergize well with the plan.

Actually I got kinda bored and thought about what mdc7233 said, and i made a quick deck with some cards i have laying around. it's rakdos, so colours I liked, I'm not super in love with the comander, but hey I already own this one. Shrug* I might upgrade it and take it for a spin after I throw a sol ring and mana artifacts in there. so Thank you mdc7233. Panas now i get what you're saying using Attrition Dictate of Erebos and Aura Shards. Tho to set it up leads to either really good luck, or a decent amount of tutors. And personally I don't own the cards. But I do gotta ask, what is the rest of your deck doing? I know part of it is going to go into token generation, but what else? Like Malakir Cullblade Gavony Unhallowed Overseer of the Damned Rot Shambler?

For more fun, consider Smallpox or Innocent Blood or even Bloodmad Vampire for madness trigger and sacrifice. If you want a wincon, you could have some Grave Betrayal, but its CMC is really high. You could also try a lethal swing with Altac Bloodseeker, but that's only until end of turn. You might want to consider Malakir Cullblade or Sangromancer.

I would definitely swap Nightmare to a Defiant Bloodlord for better flavor and synergy with abundant life gain.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet would also fit very well with removal and aggressiveness as its own abilities work well together even if it's your only creature left standing. Maybe take out a Bloodbond Vampire or Sengir Vampire for Kalitas.

Voldaren Pariah  Flip would bring you a very strong madness play and good synergy with Kalitas: dead creatures from your opponent turn to sacrificial fuel for transforming Voldaren, resulting in more death and more creatures for you.

If you want more madness fuel, consider Asylum Visitor and tap into card advantage with your life gain.

Fetid Imp doesn't seem very essential, Malakir Cullblade would be a potential alternative for two mana slots.

A few Indulgent Aristocrats could be added to give more one mana drops that stay relevant through the game. It can be surprisingly powerful as a late game drop with strong board presence.

If you don't want to go with madness, Heir of Falkenrath  Flips should probably go, since without madness the transform cost is too high for a mere +1/+1. Then Alms of the Vein could be replaced with Essence Extraction.

That's a lot of suggestions, but I like your idea and got inspired! Maybe I should do some tweaking to my own non-standard vampire aggro...
