Pulse Tracker Discussion

So basically, I think this deck just needs some more focus. Have you heard of the rule of 9? It’s where you pick 9 cards that are going to be the core of your deck, adding 4 of each of them, and then adding 24 lands. That gets you to 60. Then you can mess with it from there. It’s a great way to trim the fat and make sure the decks you build operate efficiently.
Aside from that, just some random things.
Wit's End is incredibly expensive to use at 7 mana to do something that doesn’t really have much to do with anything. If you’re gonna spend that much, you’ll want it to be something like a complete board wipe or some game changing combo.
Another thing, being a vampire tribal deck, you have an opportunity to take huge advantage of your creature type being uniform, and you aren’t really capitalizing on it.
All that in mind, here are just some random cards to look at.

zephyr_chang how do I go about upvoting the comment you gave? ;)
I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into giving me advice and criticism. It was incredibly helpful and thorough.
I checked online about the the mono-black vampire builds that Tom Ross made and he literally said he was embarrassed about Pulse Tracker and Vampire Lacerator! I had never seen that discussion before so thank you for referring me to it!
To get straight to the point, I took your advice and rearranged the build. I substituted Viscera Seer in for Vampire Lacerator. I took out Indulgent Aristocrat and Captivating Vampire for Bloodghast and 2 more Sign in Blood. I hope this helps the build to be more consistent and more competitive. I wish Bloodghast was cheaper, but there is a reason it is expensive, being as good as it is.
As for the lands, I'm going to leave it the way it is for now, with the next big investment being Marsh Flats since I am a Mardu player through and through.
All in all, and everything considered, what do you think of the build? Is there anything else you would suggest for the sideboard? Thank you again for the dedicated response!

Edgar decks need to be fast. Replace the tapped lands with lands that don't come into play tapped as far as possible. Play lots of small vampires, since Edgar will make them big anyway.
You could probably cut some of the more expensive creatures. Put in cheaper Vampires like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodcrazed Paladin, Malakir Cullblade, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Indulgent Aristocrat, Stromkirk Noble, Vicious Conquistador, Pulse Tracker, Shadow Alley Denizen, Markov Blademaster to get multiple tokens. Inspiring Cleric doesn't have enough of an impact.
You could potentially replace Avacyn with Eldrazi Monument for the earlier indestructible and +1/+1.
Elbrus is too expensive and not very useful. You should also drop Angelic Destiny and Noble Purpose.

You can make this deck a lot faster without losing to much value by reducing some cards with hight mana cost, at this moment its sees like a mid range kinda trying to be aggro but to slow: Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin Markov, New Blood, Black Market,Bloodsworn Steward, Olivia Voldaren,Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Decree of Pain then you can add 1 mana drops, the presure you can generate is impressing, Pulse Tracker, Vicious Conquistador, Shadow Alley Denizen, Vampire Cutthroat. Consider Purphoros, God of the Forge for hard killing potential x 2 because of edgar and Erebos, God of the Dead as indestructible greed that cancels life gain and can hit eventually. with cheap vampires i would use Legion's Landing and Springleaf Drum instead of signets and/or 3 mana rocks. from here i would improve the quallity and refinement of some cards: do you really need Mindcrank? do i want to give lifes in an agroo deckSwords to Plowshares or better a land Path to Exile? is it worth a Dismember over Go for the Throat or Hero's Downfall?. Ultimatly it depends ond how you want the deck to work, this is an agrro recomendation but if you want to consolidate midrange, i would suggest to go with a ton of life link and life gaining gimmiks.

My friend has been running essentially the same list of Vampires since OG Zendikar through Innistrad, with a couple additions from Ixalan. Based on how difficult the deck is to beat, there's definitely some recommendations I can make.
A couple Blade of the Bloodchief gets absolutely backbreaking. Slap one on an Aetherborn or Nighthawk and you'll see.
Viscera Seer is a fantastic 1-drop; free sac outlet and top deck fixing through scry. Pseudo-card advantage.
