imSandstorm: The combo starts by having an additional vampire in play or if you have both Oathsworn Vampire and Blood Artist in hand to cast to generate the extra body to sac. How the combo works is this:
Cast Oathsworn Vampire from your graveyard (you can cast him now that you've gained life to enable it)
Edgar Markov’s ability triggers creating a vampire token
Repeat steps 1 to 3 infinite times.

Sweet deck! About the infinite drain combo..I'm not sure if I get how you pull it off. I know it works with Bontu's Monument because of the cost reduction, letting you cast Oathsworn Vampire for the 1 mana you make off sac'ing it to Phyrexian Altar . Without a cost reducer, how does your combo go off? Aside from that, I got a lot of use out of Massive Raid along with the aforementioned Battle Hymn .

The exasperated retail worker offers a Thornbite Staff in hopes that it will quell Karen's rage. He motions toward a shelf nearby; "We carry these as well": Smothering Abomination , Hell's Caretaker , Illusionist's Bracers , Black Market , Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Dread Return , Bolas's Citadel , Champion of Stray Souls , Desecrated Tomb , Midnight Reaper , Harvester of Souls , Oathsworn Vampire , Sengir Nosferatu

Hi again wanted to get an idea of what criteria Edgar Markov doesn't meet within the guidelines for competitive play? Been working on the list for a little bit of time and wanted to see other than CA in the command zone, what he lacked in regards to making the competitive tab?
The Pulls towards the deck is it is a similar playstyle to that of the Sidisis, focusing on fast combo and reanimation. It has one of, if not the, largest amount of layered cards between it's Skullclamp and Razaketh, the Foulblooded lines, as well as the fastest razaketh the foulblooded lines, usually going off with between 0/2 mana usually. The Razaketh lines included also are able to win from 2 creature + 0 mana, and with the recent addition of Dockside Extortionist an alternative line for later in the game that doesn't rely on chaining 0 drops. This allows us to have a low curve and also plays post Ad Nauseam fueling, Carnival of Souls as well as Phyrexian Altar which layer with the Oathsworn Vampire combo within the deck.
The clear disadvantages of the deck being the number of "dead" cards we layer to form more redundancy within the list, as well as the lack of Blue which would supply cantrips and counterspells for the deck. This interaction suite of the deck is slowly improving with more printings of stronger cards as well as effects such as Mandate of Peace .

I think it would be funny to have one combodeck. Bontu's Monument / Vindictive Vampire , Reassembling Skeleton / Oathsworn Vampire , Pitiless Plunderer and Ravenous Harpy . The monument is from an older set, but i think it would be okay. A free sac-outlet was in Kaladesh, but i think the Harpy is fine. A tutor like Forerunner of the Coalition for more consistancy.

If you fancied splashing the cash then maybe run Phyrexian Altar this could actually let you sac creatures to create the mana you need to bring them back.

Falkenrath Noble is actually worse because it hits only one player per trigger and relies too much on your opponents to play many creatures. Stat-wise it might be better because of added evasion in form of flying but I'd actually stick to the ground with Vindictive Vampire dealing 3-4 damage and healing me for 1.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good but not here - it's place is in some more midrange decks rather than full on aggro. On the other hand Vampire Nocturnus has POTENTIAL to be amazing but... in 3-color deck it has too much % chance to whiff. I've actually counted and there are 41 black cards and it might not be enough to make it worth inclusion.
If I'd make it more similar to my Aggro/Aristocrats deck I'd swap:
- Sorin, Solemn Visitor --> Vindictive Vampire - I see planeswalkers as sorcery spells because there's a very high chance that they'll be killed during the whole turn cycle. So this Sorin is for +1/+0 and lifelink OR 2/2 token... Is it worth 4 CMC? Unfortunately, I don't think so.
- Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet --> Quag Vampires - low CMC aggro vampire that has potential to be unblockable with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and come with a few +1/+1 counters later in the game.
- Adanto Vanguard --> Bloodthrone Vampire - white vampire for black one and I personally don't see this Vanguard as powerful, while with all those ping abilites on board we can easily machine gun opponents to death (or close enough to be taken down by buffed up vampire lady).
Other than that I'm recently questioning the value of Stromkirk Noble since it's not card... What do you think about it?

I 100% agree with cutting Zealots. I understand it feels bad on T8 when you run out of gas, but there are plenty of other ways to generate Card Advantage without drawing cards. Graveyard Marshal , Midnight Reaper , and Isareth the Awakener come to mind although none of them are "vampires" so prolly not the most optimal fit. Maybe Oathsworn Vampire could fit a similar role... MAYBE
Ill-Gotten Inheritance is an excellent draft card but isn't really constructed playable.
Prison Realm would be an excellent upgrade over Luminous Bonds It takes creatures with passive abilities completely off the board has the added benefit of hitting walkers and the scry can help setup your next draw.
All in all there is only so far you can take a deck like this and I would be careful investing too much cash-ola. The deck seems to be suffering from a bit of an identity crisis.
What store are you doing the FNM thing at? Maybe i could swing by.
