Malicious Affliction is better than Doom Blade in a mono-b deck

In my experience, Tokens don't do a whole bunch of work. Because you'll need at least 5+ creatures to hit once or twice. Although it of course depends on what your friends play! First off just some cuts I'd recommend; Bishop of the Bloodstained Is an OK vamp, but Malakir Bloodwitch is way better, Bloodghast is ok but he's only a 2/1 with maybe haste, granted he essentially keeps comming back, but he dosnt have a great threat level that needs an answer for and he dosnt proc Edgar each time he ETB theres a lot better vamps out there who can fill this slot. Bloodthrone Vampire is ok but sacing a token just for a +2/+2 seems meaningless for me, sure it's a 3/3 but you have to burn a token that could be attacking instead, so you're really just getting one more damage...Falkenrath Gorger is a great card, but you kinda need to play around it so to speak, you cant cast madess as a regular cast and you're not benefiting from discarding in this deck so it seems a little out of place, if you were to have say Olivia, Mobilized for War and other discard theme's then I'd be for it but unless your playing against heavy discard decks I'd say no, Journey to Nowhere and Oblivion Ring are nice enchantments sure, but with black,red AND white as card sources, you're already in the BEST removal in the game, I'd but more usefull cards like the new Kindred Dominance or something like Crackling Doom to get more bang for your buck so to speak. (although granted you could get back the Journey to Nowhere and Oblivion Ring through some recursion, but recursion is not the main theme of this deck. (if you wana go that route, i'd say go Patriarch's Bidding, Go for the Throat, love this card for 2 mana but there is a better card out here, and since Edgar is a heavy black deck, I havent had ANY issue casting this, Malicious Affliction if just a fabulous card, for only TWO mana you can kill TWO things, simply marvelous, and since you're in heavy removal colors the Morbid hasnt been hard to trigger, or killing creatures (i.e your own tokens or so). Also I love Mortify and its flavor, but there is an upgrade, its called Wear / Tear kills both an enchantment AND artifact, for the SAME MANA COST. It's simply better. Sorry for such the long post! But some cuts/ rec's i'd give to you. I personally think that a tribal theme deck's are weak because they focus more on a timmy strategy and have no answer's to anything because they want to barf out their vampires, werewolfs, merfolk, w/e and just flood the board! (like those damn elves) But we as vampires are more powerful and cunning than that! I think the best vampire is to focus more on a control/good vampire strategy.

Jebus NCN946, those are both REALLY good. How have I not noticed that demon before?

I love the Reaper from the Abyss, if pulled with 6 apostles, would then kill 6 creatures at the end of turn. That's on top of the fact that I should get 6 Spirits from commander, that will allow me to kill 6 more creatures and exile 2 more if I sac them.. Wow, the Synergy.

Malicious Affliction is good as well, but a little more limited, a lot of my playgroup tends to play black.

You Have plenty of Kill already, but i'd consider using Reaper from the Abyss for the sweet sweet morbid, maybe Malicious Affliction as well

also, you were complaining about removal being expensive: Victim of Night, Malicious Affliction, and Tragic Slip are all cheep and playable

Depending on your meta, my thoughts may be way off, but I can give you a couple thoughts.

Personally, I think you are trying to do cool things, but you are trying to do it in a non-disruptive way. The majority of your cards just exile from the yard without doing something proactive about it and a couple cards seem to go against this theme.

For example, Humility Makes Anafena a 1/1. For three mana. And this all. She doesn't exile anymore, she doesn't add counters, and the majority of your creatures are constellation based, so they then do nothing. Maybe you have some insane EtB deck with all sorts of mana abilities, but if that is the case, you could run Linvala, Keeper of Silence to turn off there fun while maintaining your own stuff.

I also think Archangel of Thune and Skybind are weak because you don't have a lot of little lifegain effects (think soul sister effects) and Skybind just blinks things. This could kill tokens or x/x dudes, but 5 mana for an almost do nothing on EtB enchantment feels.. lacking.

In terms of ramp/targeted removal, you are in green, so ramp is nuts and artifact removal is good. You also B/W so removalof creatures and enchantments is pretty great.

Ramp:Mana Dorks: - Lots of them. Jam them. 1 mana 1/1's that tap for mana that can be bigger in the early stages from an early anafenza swing (she says TAPPED creature. Not ATTACKING creature)

Llanowar Elves, Elves of Deep Shadow, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Elvish Mystic, Birds of Paradise (not technically a 1/1 but whatever), etc. They are all good and all produce colored mana, which is important in a mana hungry deck.

:Mana Rocks: 2-3 mana ones are best. The appropriate signets and the G/W Talisman is nice. Chromatic Lantern (if it isn't already in there) is an all-star. It is one of the normal picks with Enlightened tutor that I take, with Sol Ring and Courser being very close as well. You also could have a Sylvan Caryatid.

There is also 2-4 sorceries that get lands like Farseek, Explosive Growth Skyshroud Claim, etc. Oracle of Mul Daya also kinda fits here.

:Removal: ( my favorite)2-4 mana seems to be the normal cost.

Snuff Out, Anguished Unmaking, Vindicate, Utter End, Malicious Affliction, (maybe, probably not because of exile) Council's Judgment, Silence the Believers, Nature's Claim for artifacts and whatnot if you feel it is needed.

Lastly, I think there is some kind of "lack" of wincon in here if your opponents have some form of lifegain or can keep Anafenza contained. There are some combos you can do like Linvala, Keeper of Silence + Nature's Revolt (the opponents lands can no longer tap for mana because they are creatures with a tap ability). Could also throw Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite into that mix to murder the lands as well. But some omissions/changes, you totally could have something else in there I am just not seeing and is a crazy wincon. I just don't see it :)

Sorry for a mega post.. But I just made an Anafenza deck that focused on the word "exile" and just wanted to play big scary things and win. So I recently found a LOT of cards to go into these kind of decks.

Hey! The deck looks good :) but a few small suggestions:

Things I might add: Good draw (Phyrexian Arena, Necropotence), extra combats, good removal, better acceleration/fixing (see below; Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth).

Keen Sense, Sixth Sense, Sword of Feast and Famine and friends, Bedlam, Malicious Affliction, Seize the Day, Relentless Assault, Aggravated Assault, Mana Vault, Golgari Signet and friends, Coalition Relic, Chromatic Lantern, Mana Crypt...
