Sanctum Seeker Discussion

Have you considered to add Sanctum Seeker to the legion? Personally I'd pick him over 1 of the Epicure of Blood. Also Legion's Landing Flip could be a good utility to generate more vampires with lifelink and I think would fit the deck.

I 'd suggest: +4 watery grave (tapped out says error when i want to post the card) - 3 Islands, being a splash only, -2 Swamp, +3 Plains + 1 Isolated Chapel, + 1 Drowned Catacomb, -3 Unclaimed Territory, -1 Gateway Plaza, -1 Guildmage's Forum, + 1 Field of Ruin-3 Vicious Rumors + 3 Legion's Landing Flip, -2 Cast Down, +3 Sanctum Seeker, -3 Bishop's Soldier + 4Martyr of Dusk, -3 Blood Operative, there is no surveil in ur Deck, +2 Settle the Wreckage cause it always helps,.... u can run Vampires successfully in Orzhov too, it's even more fun and more competitive i think, it's been a while, but WBVampires worked quite well,... Have fun with ur Bloodsuckers!!! Cheers, Töröööö

This is pretty hypothetical; I don't have most of these cards and am not sure how this would actually play. I don't think it would actually be good enough to compete with other decks in the same price range. I'm guessing if I cut out some of the more expensive cards (sub Sanctum Seeker for Bloodline Keeper Flip, etc. for Drana, Liberator of Malakir and the planeswalkers) it wouldn't be as good but it would probably be better relative to its cost.

This deck definitely looks like it packs a punch with the early Vampire lords.
Some Vamps aren't amazing and it maybe use some more board wipes but the deck is very well-built overall, +1 from me.

I'm going to preface my comment with what I always do: This is all positive criticism, and I don't want you to take anything the wrong way, I'm just giving you the comments I would take myself.
I love the idea, and having ways to gain life, alone, makes it difficult for aggro/burn decks to quickly take care of you. That being said, your deck is 1) too slow. 12 of your creatures die to a 2/2 with no keywords. If they bring out a 5/5 with trample, you lose. Period. You need creatures that work for you in a vacuum. A Vampire deck is a great idea for Drainin' Em :), you can run your deck around Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle + Sanctum Seeker. Legion Lieutenant can help boost your army, and Lingering Souls are an extremely efficient and low costing way to keep you alive early game to aggro/burn decks. Vicious Conquistador is a really good 1 drop. 2 defense and having them lose one life upon attacking is so strong, especially when boosted by the aforementioned creatures. With the new creatures, I'd remove Drana's Emissary + Cliffhaven Vampire in a heartbeat. Slow, inefficient, and do nothing for you. Speed up the tempo here is key, so you give yourself a chance to win.
2) The deck needs removal. Again, if they have a 5/5 with trample, the game's over. If you had something like Doom Blade, or Mortify, or Oblivion Ring, or Unmake, you'd be in much better shape. All are great choices.
3) There are a few cards I am not a huge fan of. Campaign of Vengeance costs you 5 mana and does you pretty much nothing. What if you're not in a position to attack? What if you only have 3 creatures out? It's just not great until many more turns in, and at that point, you've either lost, or won. I'd prefer you put in a big creature, or add removal. Trespasser's Curse doesn't do you too much either. If they're running aggro, you're toast anyway. 1 life per creature makes 0 difference. If they're running control, it won't do you anything all game long. Children of Korlis is poor at all points in the game other than turn one. Late game, it's a dead draw, and they'll wipe you to 0 before his ability gains you life, and outside of turn 1, he's a chump blocker to anything more than a 1/1. Alternatives include -> Duskborne Skymarcher has flying, Indulgent Aristocrat has lifelink and can boost other Vampires, Vicious Conquistador has big defense and a nice ability to boot.
I know I ripped your deck apart, but I really like the idea, and lifelink is a really great mechanic you can work with to make a quality deck. Best of Luck!

We just built my son a tribal vampire commander waiting for some cards to fill in for mana. Vampires have a lot that stacks with Sanguine Bond add in Drana's Emissary, Cliffhaven Vampire, Gifted Aetherborn and a ton more with lifelink, Sanctum Seeker which with the token spam can get crazy add in Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Bloodline Keeper Flip and Olivia Voldaren to steal creatures as vampire and attack them with their own creature. That is not even counting Vampire Envoy
All that will help stack with that combo you can have some crazy fun with Vampire tribal

Hey xStormyx, thanks for your suggestions. My deck is still in its early stage, in fact I just had my first game with it yesterday.
White counterspells seem odd for some but it can save your army against mass removal. This is my priority in my playgroup since there are a lot of control.
Fire covenant is in playtesting, I like the idea of removing lots of threats early on without having to wipe my own army.
So yeah, yesterday I played against:
Trostani, Selesnya's Voice token aggro
Talrand, Sky Summoner counterspells everything
Omnath, Locus of Rage still not fully optimised but could do awefull things
Zedruu the Greathearted prison/stax/chaos
My deck got out of control very early on, Sanctum Seeker and Mana Echoes did the most in that game. I got to 170ish life and looked very dangerous with board presence to all even Talrand with his control spells.
Unfortunatly I got screwed by tax effects of the Zedruu player. He went for a mass land removal, then mass creature removal. Had lots of tax effect and then he added a Pyromancer's Swath on top of it. He then won my stalling (for an hour!!!) and playing Test of Endurance. I tryed to counter and remove his stuff but he always had the answer.
I'm still happy with that loss, since I destroyed almost everyone and the most experienced player at the table had to give everything to win.
