No way you'll use Mardu Banner. Commander's Sphere is there for ya! Change the Keyrune for some haste enchantments like Hammer of Purphoros because it can help you casting Kaalia and swinging right away.

Hey!

I think you could cut glacial chasm and ice floe

Maybe add Maze of Ith or Thaumatic Compass  Flip

Revoke Existence/Fate Forgotten could be Forsake the Worldly or Return to Dust. I think the instant speed is worth the extra mana

cut distress, single card discard in commander is hard to use effectivly. If you want this type of effect add Sadistic Hypnotist.

maybe cut Feast of Blood for another instant speed kill spell like Path to Exile or Murderous Cut

maybe cut Mardu Banner for Mind Stone or Hedron Archive.

swap Mortify/Unmake for Anguished Unmaking or Utter End

Cut Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet for being to expensive and not inpacting the board fast enough.

Add some sweet sweet card draw like, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Painful Truths, Phyrexian Arena.

Add some recurision like Phyrexian Reclamation, Sun Titan (maybe), Bishop of Rebirth (Definitly!)

Add some pump effects like Shared Animosity, Cathars' Crusade,

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good, maybe find a spot for him over Mathas, Fiend Seeker maybe?

Well that's a lot of suggestions, if you'd like to debate any of them I'd be more than happy to!

Good luck spreading vampirism!

Unlike previous posters, I actually do like Asylum Visitor, though you'll probably want a Larceny type of effect to buff it.

Blood Baron of Vizkopa is difficult to get as good as you want him to be.

Blood Seeker is pretty whatever against decks that aren't tokens

Cliffhaven Vampire doesn't do enough as a card to justify a precious slot, same with Drana's Emissary. Cliffhaven does combo though, so he may be alright.

Falkenrath Gorger needs support to really get to there, though he can be alright if you get there

Falkenrath Marauders is just a big idiot, with little else to offer, as is Markov Blademaster for the most part

Gifted Aetherborn is likely a tad more defensive than you aim to be, though I'm slightly more a fan of Nighthawk, since flying takes down most dragon-y monsters

Mirri the Cursed is sweet, but not very impactful. I can't fault anyone for wanting to run her though.

Olivia, Mobilized for War has a somewhat steep cost to grant haste, and most of your dudes are vamps already

Tithe Drinker gets a no from me, too

Mardu Banner ought to be Coalition Relic, or at least Commander's Sphere if your budget is tight.

I was never "wowed" by Blade of the Bloodchief in Olivia, myself.

Vampiric Fury doesn't quite cut muster in EDH so far, as vampires lack the token-makers and other cards to truly go wide yet. Along the same lines Stensia Banquet is just a bad card.

Four Sorins is going to be too many, too often. Maybe try trimming one of them to avoid drawing multiples?

If you can swing it, ABUr's and fetches have a silent impact, yet smooth out so many mana issues. Can't reccomend them enough.

That's what I saw in my first glance-through. I'd avoid running cards that only drain/gain life-- even if they're vampires-- and would instead focus on jamming more impactful cards. That said, I still run Baron Sengir for sentimentality reasons, so I can't blame you for wanting to run a few pet cards as well. I've felt for a while now that vampires are as few as two years away from being a legitimately great tribe (not that they're unplayable now), but Wizards needs to show a bit more love to them. They do suffer from a case of split-personality having been Black's iconic and characteristic race at different times. I've been running Olivia since Innistrad, and I feel your pain of making the switch to Mardu, but I'm optimistic that it'll make for a better deck. Cuts are going to be rough though, that's for certain. Check out my list if you need inspiration.

Anyhow, if you have any specific questions or thoughts, feel free to shoot me a message. I usually reply within a week, depending on how busy work gets.Cheers, and God bless.

Super cool deck, Really like the synergy. Would consider cutting Mardu Banner for something like Fellwar Stone. Also playing creatures with cycling is cool

FrankStar Ah, no I did not, ha. Learn something new every day! It does soothe my soul to see the cards normally categorized, though.

Yeah but the Djinn can easily come back to bite you in the ass too. Some other cuts I'd consider would be End Hostilities (you already have a decent amount of board wipes) and Master of Cruelties. I love him, but he has a pretty small scope here. That's just how cuts go sometimes.

I'd also switch out Mardu Banner with Chromatic Lantern, no doubt. Unless you don't have a Lantern, then the Banner is an okay place holder. Good luck with continuing your cuts!
