Olivia Voldaren Discussion
3 days ago
Olivia Voldaren is the vampire's red/black commander. gives you access to more vampires, and things like Mob Rule and Insurrection.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - can be good, and hoses recursion decks.
Yahenni, Undying Partisan - is also a fun vampire to take the mono black helm.
I have not seen him used for a while, but Anowon, the Ruin Sage also works as a good mono black choice.

Hey there, just saw that your making the same kinda deck I am, with Marchesa. Mines not complete yet but here are some thoughts to consider. Blatant Thievery-take control of one permanent per player. Rise of the Dark Realms this is a bit on the spendy side so i dont know, it would b fun tho ;) Beguiler of Wills -pretty much take a creature each turn. Dominus of Fealty. Empress Galina- THIS IS A MUST!! take their commanders...indefinitely Lord of the Void-not only exiles their deck, u also take something. Olivia Voldaren this is right on that budget, if u say yes, make creatures into vampires, steal vampires. Riptide Entrancer. Sphinx Ambassador this is tons of fun, read it. Thalakos Deceiver . Sepulchral Primordial. Aura Thief- take all enchantments.
here is some of the cards i have that might be towards your liking. most of these cards are within ur budget, a couple are just above it a smidge. and yes, i like ur strategy, i think its fun. i originally want to make a marchesa deck cuz i wanted to run all the Swords, still doing that, but i found how fun it can be to take other peoples stuff

You need Serum Visions to set up your draws so you always have the maximum number of options available. The thing with Grixis is you're trying to 2-for-1 your opponent out of the game. You have to grind them down on cards, then capitalize on your more efficient spells to close the win. Part of that is hitting them early with Inquisition of Kozilek to ruin their early game, part of that is setting your draws up with Serum Visions. The best part about Serum Visions is it lets you play a lower land count for a control deck and never miss land drops. Serum Visions is actually stronger than Thought Scour in this deck.
Your lands look good. I'd toss in a singleton Desolate Lighthouse and single Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. Shizo, Death's Storehouse and the other lands in that cycle I've also found put in a lot of work once your deck has 2 or more legendary creatures. I also think you need some manlands, especially Creeping Tar Pit. That way, you don't need so many win conditions and can use those extra spell slots on more utility and removal. You optimally need more fetch lands, but Scalding Tarns are expensive.
As for a sideboard, I would use this:
1x Anger of the Gods
1x Crumble to Dust/Blood Moon
1x Engineered Explosives
1x Keranos, God of Storms
1x Lost Legacy
1x Slaughter Pact/Spell Snare/Grim Lavamancer
1x Olivia Voldaren
1x Rakdos Charm
1x Vendilion Clique/Thoughtseize

Michae1JCaboose Stromkirk Captain Captivating Vampire Bloodghast Kalastria Highborn Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Cavern of Souls Feast of Blood SB Vampire Lacerator Guul Draz Vampire Viscera Seer Shared Animosity Olivia Voldaren should replace liliana, or more kill spells like Terminate or Fatal Push. Vampire Tribal is generally very aggressive and you dont' want you curve to be too high. Dark ritual is not modern legal. replace them, and tragic slip with Lightning Bolt. it'll give you that extra damage push. there are several ways to build BR vamps, but these are usually core cards to work with.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx I would consider to be good in only mono-colored decks.
So, he are some paths you can go down, since I would consider this deck to be a bit convoluted:
Lifegain: Change your commander, keep some of the cards, but make it solely about gaining life and making your opponents suffer from it.
Graveyard Interaction: Keep your commander, just make it completely focused on getting cards into your graveyard, and then getting cards that benefit from more cards in your graveyard
Vampires: Now this one I don't know too well, but commanders like Olivia Voldaren might work.
Allies: This one is not what I would recommend, since there are like, barely enough creatures to support this, and only 2 commanders, only one of which really goes well with the ally theme.
I hope this helps, and I hope to see some of your future decks!

Deck seems pretty solid already!
The one card in your deck that seems out of place is Braid of Fire. Since that mana enters your pool on your upkeep, you can't use it in your main phase. Unless a card like Kruphix, God of Horizons says otherwise the mana would leave your pool and thus could only cast instants with it. I feel like that for your deck it's nice, but doest work with most of your other cards. With your current mainboard configuration i'm also not too in love with Whip of Erebos as most of your creatures are small until they can do damage which makes them not as great to bring back. I could see it being justified maybe but for right not it seems a bit low power.
You also have 7 cards that have an ability trigger when you deal damage. Makes me wonder if Temur Battle Rage has a home here as it means that the creature will do damage twice in the same combat. Even with things like Vampire Outcasts it could do a decent amount of damage.
As for your sideboard, I think that needs a bit more work than the maindeck. Generally speaking, the sideboard is used to change your deck to give you matchups agaisnt other decks. For instance if you were against a graveyard based deck, you might be able to being in something like Leyline of the Void. As it is it appears to be more of a collection of cards that you couldnt find room for in the mainboard. Some of the cards in there also seem to be a tad out of place. Vicious Shadows for instance costs a lot of mana. Yes it's powerful when it hits play, but without any ramp i think it is pretty likely for it to be stranded in your hand for most of the game.
Hope this helps! again seems like a pretty solid deck already.

I just finished my Vampire deck and I nixed the Olivia Voldaren - Deathtouch combo because I am pretty sure my friends wouldn't want to play with me anymore once I cleared the bored a few times.
