@chadsansing: Liliana, the Last Hope, Auriok Champion, and Archangel of Thune are all too expensive for this deck, and Pious Evangel  Flip seems like a worse and more expensive version of a lot of cards already in the deck. I have though been looking into Nyx-Fleece Ram, Wall of Reverence, and Authority of the Consuls and they seem pretty good.
@KINGofORESKOS: Vona, Butcher of Magan seems like an amazing removal option and as a vampire it would help with Blood Tribute. The only downside is the cost. I already own most of this deck and am looking to change it, but I am trying to keep most changes at most a dollar or two and I already have pretty strong removal. This definitely is a card I will keep in mind for future upgrades though

I love Karlov.

Have you ever tested with an Archangel of Thune? Zulaport Cutthroat might be better than, or a complement to, Blood Artist (or a Pious Evangel  Flip). Are you avoiding the Blood/Bond combo?

Have fun!

Consider adding cards like Soul's Attendant, Soul Warden, Healer of the Pride, Pious Evangel  Flip, Suture Priest, and Auriok Champion to gain life off of your tokens when they enter the battlefield.

If you do that, Karlov of the Ghost Council makes a heck of a commander or value creature. Other life-gain creatures and effects benefit that card a lot (see also: 4C Locust Council EDH).

You could also play Westvale Abbey  Flip or Viscera Seer + Zulaport Cutthroat pretty effectively in this deck.

Have fun brewing!

It might be fun to ultimate a Liliana, the Last Hope with a few more Soul-Warden effects in play like Auriok Champion and Pious Evangel  Flip.

Nyx-Fleece Ram and Wall of Reverence are pretty good Karlov triggers, too. Authority of the Consuls might test well.

Is Archangel of Thune out of budget?

Have fun playing!

Some cards like Gideon Jura, Worn Powerstone, Comeuppance, Disenchant, Slaughter Pact, Eldrazi Displacer, Skeletal Scrying and Akroma's Vengeance.

You want to focus on the life gain theme but there are better cards then Retreat to Hagra, Cathedral Sanctifier, Auriok Champion, and Pious Evangel  Flip.

Idk if anyone has mentioned this, but a growing number of cards are not loading their reversed side for the transform cards, and many cards are loading as generic black images with only the card name. Also, many cards (Especially the ones reprinted in Iconic Masters) are failing to load prices.

Here's a list of cards I have noticed problems with on the decks I have created.

So far that's all I have noticed, but I did notice that with these cards when I enter playtesting it often has issues. It won't truly "randomize" decks (You'll often topdeck the same card you just drew, or you'll shuffle all lands to the top / bottom).

I don't know if it's a coincidence but it's worth noting these are all black cards with the exception of Pious Evangel, who's a white creature but transforms into a black creature and it is the "Flip" side-text that won't load. That, and in playtest when you flip him over it reveals the generic back of the card, and not Wayward Disciple.

Dusk isn't really useful here, Dawn is, but you can get cheaper cards that have just the Dawn effect. Since you're placing a ton of counters on your stuff, Dusk will become a wrath of God, or in some cases, a one-sided board wipe only affecting you. ('Cause y'know [Primer] Doran the Unstoppable exists)

Maybe remove the "vanilla" vampires, primarily Falkenrath Reaver. I also don't feel as though you should run anything but Vampires, as Markov prefers vampires over anything, so Pious Evangel and Mentor of the Meek might be worth taking another look at. (Evangel might work, but I don't think you can make enough mana for Mentor to be that useful)

On to card suggestions!

Legion's Landing  Flip

Rootborn Defenses

Cathars' Crusade

Teferi's Protection

Kindred Charge

Blasphemous Act

Eldrazi Monument

Impact Tremors/Goblin Bombardment/Raid Bombardment/Pandemonium

Skullclamp

(I can't actually suggest any of these cards, 'cause according to tapped out, everything but basic lands in banned in Leviathan. I swing at you for lethal with 3 mountains and a swamp, lol)

Pious Evangel does not flip in the playtester or anywhere else for that matter
