Ravenous Bloodseeker is real close to what you need.

You'd have to use Inside Out or Twisted Image to make its ability give you -2/+2.

I'm not sure how reasonable this would be.

I think the best substitute is Lotleth Troll + Varolz, the Scar-Striped + Death's Shadow to give the troll 13 counters for 1 mana.

If you want to go the combo route - t1 paly Mountain, exile Simian Spirit Guide, cast Ravenous Bloodseeker. Turn 2, cast Assault Strobe on it and attack, discarding 5 cards to deal 22 damage. Oops, bloodseeker gets +2-2, ignore this.

Olivia's Dragoon and Ravenous Bloodseeker can be really useful discard outlets. Palisade Giant is a great "fog" effect that can save you some beats.

looks well worth the 25 bucks! I'd suggest replacing your Bloodmad Vampires with an additional Lightning Axe, Vampire Nighthawk, Stromkirk Captain, and Ravenous Bloodseeker. First strike and deathtouch is a very powerful combo.

Stromkirk Noble is probably the most well rounded one drop. Smuggler's Copter isnt terribly expensive and really adds a ton to the deck. A cheap aerial threat that enables your madness cards. I would swap out the Keys for it. Ravenous Bloodseeker does give you an additional discard outlet if Liliana of the Veil is out of budget.

Saying your curve tops at three means youre relying on madness (having a discard outlet). While you want to be a madness deck, it can be a fatal flaw to lean on that. You still want independently good cards.

I really like the use of One with Nothing. The thing with the deck is it looks like it is trying too hard to do too much all at once. With just two cards here and two cards there, you lack consistency in play. Try to find the cards that work the best together and use 3 or 4 of them. Unless your opponent / meta is really into things like Surgical Extraction, there's really no reason to not do it this way.

For example, if you are trying to not only discard a card AND pay it's Madness cost AND pay Olivia's Bloodsworn's ability, that's basically going to be the same as if you just played the card. You're using you resources in a non-efficient manner.

And while Ravenous Bloodseeker may be appealing at first, unless you are using cards like Distemper of the Blood, your Bloodseeker is going to end up dying to a 1/1 chump blocker. You can protect her with a Stromkirk Captain, but you don't have them in here. So, she's going to die.

BTW a great removal for a Vampire tribal deck is Feast of Blood and you should always run 4x.

But back on point, it may be harder to bring out Stromkirk Condemned over Ravenous Bloodseeker because you require two specific colors () rather than a generic and one specific (), but Stromkirk boosts all of your Vamps - therefore he is more effective, and more effective = better.

You have a really good base to work with. Keep play testing and find out which cards combo the best together, and which cards ultimately feel "slow", "sluggish" or "off". Replace those cards with the ones that you find work the best with others.

Hi,

first of all I like the low mana curve of your deck. This is how Edgar Markov should be played!

I am using Fiery Temper aswell as Avacyn's Judgment because I can almost always pay the madness cost using my discard outlets: Oona's Prowler, Ravenous Bloodseeker and Tormenting Voice. Fiery Temper is mainly my first pick because of Tormenting Voice which lets me cast it while digging my deck for either the mana I need to cast Barren Glory or Barren Glory itself.
