Olivia, Mobilized for War
Legendary Creature — Vampire Knight
Whenever another creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may discard a card. If you do, put a +1/+1 counter on that creature, it gains haste until end of turn, and it becomes a Vampire in addition to its other types.

Olivia, Mobilized for War Discussion
5 days ago
Hey guys I'm new to the forum and returning to Magic from a long break. The last set that came out before I gave it up was the Urzas set.
Anyways, out of boredom I started playing magic duels on my Xbox and then reconnected with some of my old friends who still play magic. I'd like to get a paper version of the my favorite deck from duels but am so out of touch with the game I'm not even sure what's out there. The format is pretty casual, but from what I can tell most of the decks my friends use would likely fall into modern format, but there are also some really old cards too, so im pretty flexible as far as sets I can use. Lastly I'd like to keep this fairly budget, I like the game but am not sure I'm ready to sink real money into it yet... and yes I realize that means the the liliana in the deck list has to come out.
The main thing I like about this deck is the interaction between the ruthless snipers, the various discard enablers and the madness mechanic. So I'm hoping you all could make some suggestions to take further advantage of that. I realize some cards in there aren't great but they're what i have available on the video game.
2 Cryptbreaker, 3 Ruthless Sniper, 2 Sanitarium Skeleton, 2 Lightning Axe, 3 Furyblade Vampire, 2 Call the Bloodline, 2 Macabre Waltz, 1 avacyn's judgement, 2 Distemper of the Blood, 3 Bloodmad Vampire, 1 Olivia, Mobilized for War, 4 firey temper , 1 Liliana, the Last Hope, 1 Avaricious Dragon, 2 Bloodhall Priest, 2 Merciless Javelineer, 1 Biting Rain, 1 Cut / Ribbons, 2 Horror of the Broken Lands, 1 Incorrigible Youth,

I would say Curse of Bloodletting and Bad Moon for a quick win opt with what you already have here. Olivia Volderan, Olivia, Mobilized for War, and Vampiric Dragon are just some more suggestions sticking to the tribal theme.

cards i would strongly consider
- Wrath of God
- Utter End
- Anguished Unmaking
- Harsh Mercy
- Swords to Plowshares
- Path to Exile
- Authority of the Consuls
- Blind Obedience
- Olivia Voldaren
- Olivia, Mobilized for War
- Forerunner of the Legion
- Legion Lieutenant
- Twilight Prophet
- Champion of Dusk
- Sanctum Seeker
- Bishop of Rebirth
- Sun Titan
- Kalastria Highborn
- Crackling Doom
- Orzhov Signet
- Rakdos Signet
- Boros Signet
- Gifted Aetherborn
- Path of Ancestry
- Unclaimed Territory
- Nomad Outpost
- Command Tower
- Isolated Chapel
- Clifftop Retreat
- Godless Shrine
- Sacred Foundry
- Vault of the Archangel
- Cavern of Souls (if you want to drop a bunch of money because fuck paul)
cards i would cut:
- any of the equipment, it feels like more of a swarm deck, which makes the equipment less worthwhile
- Licia, Sanguine Tribune, shes an ok card, but better as a voltron commander than in the 99 of a swarm deck.
- Mirri the Cursed seems weak to me
- Comeuppance and Delerium have way better and lower CMC options
- i would also cut down to 38 lands, frees up 4 card slots and, with Urza's Incubator and a 3.77 average CMC, i dont think mana will be that big an issue.

Press into Service is +1/+1 counter steal spell that I forgot!
Hmmm. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed,Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Feast on the Fallen seem like good options. Maybe Simic Fluxmage or Olivia, Mobilized for War, though I don't like the discard, but if you have Necropotence and the like that can be mitigated somewhat. It also occurred to me that Herald of Secret Streams and Flayer of the Hatebound might be good in here!

Personally, I don't run Urza's Incubator in my vampire deck because the vampires I do run are very low to the ground, so for me, [Herald's Horn] does the job a bit better. I run Purphoros, God of the Forge in my deck because you're essentially getting 4 damage to each opponent for each vampire you cast.
Also Skullclamp is busted in this deck, especially with all the sac outlets you have.
Bloodflow Connoisseur is kinda weak in my opinion, I would run something like Guul Draz Assassin instead so you can snipe pesky commanders/creatures out of the battlefield in the mid to late game... Unless you want to keep a free sac outlet in your deck, in that case you can run Viscera Seer to help filter your draws from your deck.
I took out Anowon, the Ruin Sage from the deck because he'd be taken out before I would ever get his ability to resolve in my playgroup. Maybe you can add Olivia, Mobilized for War instead? Gives an option for haste and opens up options for madness too.
Exquisite Blood feels like a slow card to me, I opted against that card in my deck since I wanted to focus on damage rather than life loss. You may want to consider taking it out for something with a lower CMC, but if you find that it helps you out then definitely keep it in.

How set are on 2 color? I only ask as I am not sure there is much pay off playing Haakon with the knights you currently have. I really like the Knight of the White Orchid with the current shell though. I think I would be tempted to try and make a light splash of green or blue. green gives you Knight of the Reliquary -- which also synergies well with you shell and has some nice interactions with Knight of the White Orchid. Blue would give you Court Hussar -- which can give some nice card selection and can also play nice with Elenda, the Dusk Rose. Ethersworn Adjudicator is a bit expensive as far as cmc goes, but he can be a house. I have won games off his back in Esper control shells. He is almost kind of like a Celestial Colonnade that is vulnerable to some different removal, and instead of being uncounterable by virtue of being a land, has some extra utility in the form of a built in Vindicate. Mirran Crusader is also a card. But that might be more aggressive than what you are looking to be in this list. It might be a little cute, but Forerunner of the Legion might okay? It can tutor your Elenda, your Nameless Inversion, or Crib Swap. And then I am not 100% sure of the interaction, but it might also be pretty neat with Olivia, Mobilized for War? but even if that interaction works, it might be too cute, lol.
