Martyr of Dusk synergizes and provides ability to bounce back after board wipes.

Dusk Legion Zealot provides needed card draw.

Creatures you can play before wiping the board should either gain you life or get you more creatures. You should also swing with said creatures often, to keep regular opponents from predicting when you will board wipe.

Examples: Doomed Traveler, Dragon Egg, Filigree Familiar (a true engine for this deck), Martyr of Dusk, Matter Reshaper, and Solemn Simulacrum.

FastIsFaster I think it would be a cool card for sure, but I don’t know what I would take out. I only see it doing well against more aggressive decks, and I already have Aerial Responder and Settle the Wreckage to deal with them.

babushkasara Will get right on it with Martyr of Dusk! Might actually put it in the final just cuz I feel good about playing it on T2

You could use Gearshift Ace or Martyr of Dusk in place of the cavalry master to at least get the mana curve to display appropriately.

Do you have any vampires that actually have lifelink? Currently your only lifegain sources are Mark of the Vampire and Arterial Flow, neither of which you can recover from your graveyard. Finding vampires with lifelink would serve you better in this instance, and I know Ixalan had vampire cards that would make vampire tokens with lifelink, which gives you more oomph for your mana.

I agree with replacing maybe two each Recover and Soul Salvage with these, as well as some of the less impressive vampires you've already got.

If you've got Elenda, the Dusk Rose, this would actually be a good deck for her.

Martyr of Dusk is common, but 2/1 isn't bad and it leaves behind one of those tokens I mentioned.

Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle is rare, so you might have to purchase him, but he also produces the tokens.

Squire's Devotion is a slightly weaker Mark of the Vampire, but it gives you a second body with lifelink for a more go-wide strategy.

Those would be my suggestions for swapping in to improve this deck's lifegain-resurrection synergy.

Also run two more lands. You don't even have the excuse of Treasure tokens on this one.

In terms of updating, not finding the Angel to be as much help especially for vampires, Try something in it's place like Queen's Commission, Paladin of the Bloodstained, or even Martyr of Dusk. Those are the three cards I can recommend to help out. Angel should be taken out and maybe dusk/dawn because your going to be gaining counters from other sources. If you can manage counters pretty well I say keep dusk/dawn. Hope some of this helps :)

If you go BW you should consider small evasive vampires, since they synergise extremly well with Legion's Landing  Flip & Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle - i mean cards like Vampire Cutthroat, Shadow Alley Denizen - maaaaybe Skymarcher Aspirant...etc.

Not to mention that some white vampire are bonkers, Adanto Vanguard is OK if you have some way to gain life, and broken if you have Sword of Light and Shadow, not to mention that white has some great cards like Forerunner of the Legion & Martyr of Dusk

Just gonna throw out some interesting vampire potentials for the sake of discussion.

Vampire Cutthroat 1 mana, pseudo-evasion, lifelink

Adanto Vanguard 2 mana, attacks as a 3/1 with potential indestructible

Martyr of Dusk 2 mana, 2/1, leaves a vampire if it dies

Markov Blademaster 3 mana 1/1, double striking self pumper. (2 red cost is a downside)

Of the pack, I feel like adanto has the highest output for cost ratio and I'm actually a little surprised he's not in the list as he's a very aggressive 2 drop. Markov blademaster has the potential to get out of hand quick and really deliver some serious punches, but he can also flounder as well due to his baseline stats. Cutthroat is intriguing and a potential replacer for something like pulse tracker but probably not any other 1 drop. Martyr is kinda just a standard decent creature but it doesn't really help you in the face of a wipe when you lose everything but a 1/1 vampire.
