Oloro_Magic on Vampire's Suck All

I like where this is going however you should aim for 60 cards as going over only hurts your chances of drawing the cards you need. Duress doesn't need to be here, if anything Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize are just better options if you really want to play with disruption. Shock doesn't need to be here at all, it's simply taking up space. Instead use Victim of Night or Murder for some additional removal. Personally, I would drop Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Bloodmad Vampire (good cards but not really a fit here) and replace them with Vampire Nocturnus. Malakir Bloodwitch is another card that I don't see the benefit of having. Having it in hand slows down your deck; that said, if your goal is purely life gain then it makes sense, but then the other cards in the deck make me think life-gain is just an added bonus, not a focus, otherwise I would recommend Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond for that combo. I like the use of Vampire Cutthroat too many vamp decks neglect this card and use Pulse Tracker instead, but Cutthroat, in my opinion, is just as good especially if the game lasts longer. And finally, there is the mana, things like Blood Crypt are beneficial but not a must.

Cards that immediately jump out for having too low of an impact for most tables:

-Child of Night

-Pulse Tracker

-Vampire Outcasts

-Vampire Cutthroat

-Vengeful Vampire

-Archetype of Finality

-Bad Moon

-Cabal Ritual

-Dark Ritual

-Sorin's Thirst

-Tyrant's Choice

Some of these may just be in there because they were available, which is fine, but if you're looking to trim the fat, these are the ones that struck me as the worst inclusions.

First of all: If you want to play Pauper, all youre Cards have to be Commons not uncommons. But beside this, I am really liking the Idea, +1. Here just some Cards you could play:Merciless Executioner, Fleshbag Marauder, Mind Rot, Contaminated Ground, Typhoid Rats, Shadow Alley Denizen, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Read the Bones , Defiant Salvager, Shadow Slice, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, Pulse Tracker, Murderous Compulsion, Bone Splinters, Stab Wound, Deadbridge Shaman, Boon of Erebos, Polluted Delta and Gray Merchant of Asphodel to call some. This are the first cards coming to my mind, I can look for other cards the next days.

Why the Stormkirk Nobles instead of something like Guul Draz Vampire or Pulse Tracker which are both black?

Turn one is all about hand disruption in MHO. I would recommend Surgical Extraction. As for creatures...... Guul Draz Assassin seems interesting.
Indulgent Aristocrat
Pulse Tracker
Ruthless Ripper
Sanitarium Skeleton
Shadow Alley Denizen

Okay, I guess the next place to start is by going over the various archetypes for vampires in modern. They are a pretty flexible tribe, so there are lots of directions you can take them. Aggro, midrange, control, and even combo-esque strategies are pretty viable avenues to explore.All the lists are pretty much comprised of the following creatures depending on which direction you want to go: Bloodghast, Vampire Nocturnus, Stromkirk Captain, Stromkirk Noble, Captivating Vampire, Shadow Alley Denizen, Pulse Tracker, Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn (AKA Vampire Nightwalk), Vampire Lacerator, Vampire Cutthroat, Stromkirk Condemned, Olivia, Mobilized for War, Olivia Voldaren, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Insolent Neonate, Falkenrath Aristocrat, Indulgent Aristocrat, Falkenrath Gorger, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Artist, Viscera Seer, Blood Seeker, Asylum Visitor, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and Gatekeeper of Malakir.

Aggro lists generally stay super low to the ground in regards to CMC and include a lot of lords. Given the low CMC. Aether Vial also starts to become very good -- especially since all the lords tend to hang at 3 CMC.

There are multiple routes to midrange. One route is to to try and abuse the madness effect to turn Liliana of the Veil's +1 into a 1 sided effect.

The other is slightly more combo-y. Aristocrats is an interesting archetype that abuses the recursiveness of Bloodghast, the life-loss triggers from Blood Artist, and the instant speed sacrifice effects of Viscera Seer, Bloodthrone Vampire, Falkenrath Aristocrat and Indulgent Aristocrat. I also personally like Reassembling Skeleton, Gravecrawler, Doomed Traveler, and or Bloodsoaked Champion in the list to further be able to abuse the Blood Artist triggers with more sacrifice fodder. White also gives access to things like Rally the Ancestors -- which can be a brutal play to ping for a lot of dmg with Blood Artist triggers.

There is also more traditional midrange which just aims to play threats that if left unanswered -- typically win you the game. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, and Olivia Voldaren are all very dangerous cards for your opponent to leave in play, and Gatekeeper of Malakir can be a huge pain given his ability to not only provide a decent body, but also take down an opponent's creature with his kicker cost. Vampire Nighthawk and Gifted Aetherborn are also good for similar reasons. they trade profitably wirh almost any creature and have the benefit of giving you back some life.

There are 3 routes for combo that you can also go -- the first involves Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Intruder Alarm. The second route is Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood + vampire's ability to easily ping for 1 somehow to trigger the combo. The third is Mindcrank or Duskmantle Guildmage + Bloodchief Ascension.

Control would likely play vampires that double as control (Gatekeeper of Malakir, Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn), lots of kill spells and discard, and some planeswalkers.

I can definitely help you refine a list once you have a basic archetype in mind. Right now you seem to be in between aggro and midrange. Which is perfectly fine. You can mix and match a little bit. Devotion, as another user suggested, is also viable -- however vampires do not really have a ton of super good ways to use oodles of mana.

Hey, thanks bro. Dreadbore is defiantly awesome, if I have the money when it comes time I would love to purchase them instead.

Pulse Tracker looks cool as well, I'll defiantly consider him. Thanks man!

Before you purchase the Terminates, I would consider Dreadbore for some plainswalker control as well. For one drops I personally enjoy Pulse Tracker. Good Luck, hope this helps!
