Patriarch's Bidding Discussion

I would use the big spells at least that bring them all back like Living Death and Patriarch's Bidding as well as Rise of the Dark Realms. Some good single recursion cards are Zombify and Fearsome Awakening for flavor. Necromancy and Animate Dead are great cards as well.

If it smells like tribal, and looks like tribal, then it's probably tribal ;) I suggest Patriarch's Bidding. Fantastic for tribal. It will make daddy happy.

Patriarch's Bidding is a hell of a drug.

Saharez on Vampire Deck - (First EDH deck) advice sought

I've got a couple of suggestions!

Diabolic Intent would be a cost effective tutor for you, considering your reliable access to tokens.

Falkenrath Noble can be a boardwipe deterrent, just like your Blood Artist

bloodline necromancer can be efficicent, for two bodies.

Herald’s Horn can be a solid help, both on the mana front, but more importantly on the card draw front.Topping up on mana reducers with Urza's Incubator and suddenly your bombs become far more affordable.

depending on meta Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast are both excellent choices, a great answer to Cyclonic Rift, any number of counterspells, tutors, draw spells and a sometimes just a 1 mana removal on a threat.

Patriarch's Bidding can keep you in the game after a boardwipe.

A couple of suggestions on things to cut, if you decide to add any of the above to your list:Dark Impostor the 6 mana activation costs alot of tempo, in your color identity you will probably be pressed on mana in most games.

Vampire Nighthawk Simply because it doesn't do quite enough to altar the boardstate in a significant way.

Heirloom BladeBlade of the Bloodchief These two equipments, you are having a token centric build with a few combo pieces, these equipments are gonna cost you tempo.

I would cut Kindred Boon aswell, you are in black and white, you don't need to be afraid of things going in the grave, there is plenty of options for getting them back out again! :)

Cool deck, I'd definitely suggest adding some tutors, draw and mass recursion.

Tutors(mainly for Thrumming Stone): Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Tutor, Beseech the Queen, Diabolic Intent, Dark Petition etc.

Draw: Skullclamp/Reprocess(work great with commander), Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena etc.

Mass recursion: Living Death and/or Patriarch's Bidding.

A Sol Ring, Expedition Map, Dark Ritual and/or Cabal Ritual might be good too. Hope this helps!

goblinguiderevealpls I'm planning on doing a complete rework of this deck soon, and at least a few of those will probably be in it. Ramos, Dragon Engine, would definitely be a better commander, but then I have to write a new story for the description. (Maybe just replace all instances of Progenitus with Ramos, Dragon Engine?) The reason that I'm without Cavern of Souls, Mana Echoes, and Patriarch's Bidding is that this is meant to be a budget fun deck.

grizzlebies That is definitely a must-include. It'll go in when I do the full overhaul.

Also i would consider Ramos, Dragon Engine as a 5c commander because he can ramp you into a ton of walls suprisingly fast

I like this idea! Kind of a 5 color doran, which opens up great red and blue stuff

Also the new kindred spells are pretty boss here

Kindred Dominance

Kindred Discovery

Kindred Boon

Kindred Charge

Kindred Summons

Mana Confluence

Grand Coliseum

Cavern of Souls is an absolute powerhouse here if you can afford it
