I have 2 Sanctum Seeker in SB, should i Need the carddraw. Twilight Prophet x2 for the same reason +lifedrain without the Need to attack. I know the lists, but in my oppinion i dont Need the 3 Fatal Push, the early Drops i can nuke usually cant do more harm than i get back via lifedrain in turn 5. but thanx for the Input, appreciate it!

Khunjund: You're absolutely right, Dowsing Dagger  Flip is a little underwhelming, especially since it goes against the tribal thread of the deck. For now, I'm going to try playtesting Triumph of Gerrard in its place, as History of Benalia simply is not in my budget. I think that Triumph of Gerrard should work well getting counters onto the likes of Paladin of Atonement, though I'm also trying the deck with Elenda, the Dusk Rose so it loses a little bit of its potential usefulness.
You were absolutely right though, the deck was being bogged down being somewhere inbetween aggro and midrange, so I'm open to trying to find things to try and smooth it over!

InquisitorBiggie: History of Benalia is a card I'll sneak in there one day if I can manage to collect them, but that $20 pricetag is unfortunately too high to pay outright.
As I just said above, I just edited the deck a little bit to run Triumph of Gerrard as a little mini History, and also in place of Dowsing Dagger  Flip. I'm not quite ready to part with Helm of the Host quite yet, but the day may come.
Sanctum Seeker is a strong contender, however I just parted with Elenda, the Dusk Rose and Vona, Butcher of Magan in exchange for Seal Aways and Knight of Grace for a little smoother mana curving, so the Vampirism is a lot smaller, but if I change it back, I'll definitely have to consider him.

History of Benalia is an easy sell in a deck where all the nontoken creatures are knights. It would nearly double the cost of the deck if that is a concern for you. It would also help smooth out the mana curve.

Dowsing Dagger  Flip and Helm of the Host may not be as useful as you hope, particularly the latter - thanks to Kaladesh, artifact hate is a common trait in standard decks in my experience. Perhaps sideboard a couple Sanctum Seeker in case your opponent is handing out artifact killers; that card works with both the knights and your token strategy. The same sentiment applies for Blackblade Reforged, although I imagine that one would be a lot more directly useful to your aggro deck, particularly in combination with On Serra's Wings. With all the legendaries you have it shouldn't be too hard to equip it.

Final cut:

-1 Call for Unity you'll end up being forced to destroy your own creatures. don't forget Sanctum Seeker is also an anthem. Throne of the God-Pharaoh and Gruesome Fate are the way to go imo because each basically reads: +4 damage for each creature you control!

-1 March of the Drowned don't forget Dusk / Dawn.

-1 Paladin of the Bloodstained you'd rather play Elenda or any other vampire

-1 Authority of the Consuls sideboard for hasters

-1 Cultivator's Caravan turn 3, ramp, turn 4, elenda + 1 useless mana. you'd have to cut lands to jam these in and lands are better late game.

-1 Manalith same deal

-1 Ixalan's Binding exile interferes with Elenda and you have enough removal I think


-1 March of the Drowned + 1 Supernatural Stamina or Boneyard Parley or God-Pharaoh's Gift or The Eldest Reborn

maybe -1 Fumigate +1 Vona's Hunger to feed Elenda

looks like a really fun deck, tho! I'd recommend cutting the bad vampires (like Legion Conquistador, Skyblade of the Legion, Paladin of the Bloodstained, and Sadistic Skymarcher) for better and stronger vampires, like Sanctum Seeker, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Legion's Landing  Flip, and Forerunner of the Legion.

I question the lack of Sanctum Seeker as an unblockable psudo anthem. Otherwise looks solid~

I put in 1 more Swamp, 22 Lands is safer...Changed the Sideboard a Bit too, Forerunner of the Legion because i might need an Option to tutor for Sanctum Seeker or Twilight Prophet. 2Cast Out and 2Vraska's Contempt to get rid of Gods and other Biggies, 3 Settle the Wreckage for Aggrodecks. Feel free to test against this Deck, +1 appreciated, if you habe a hard Time defeating this Thingy!

I definitely recommend having the Captivating Vampire card since most of the cards shown here are mostly low cost and also all vampires mainly, in this case, I'd prefer switching out a couple of the "never return" ones for a couple more call to the feast, that way not only are you able to gain more vampire lifelink tokens but thanks to CV ability to give them all +1 counters really helps bring them up to a higher level. Any other cards you have that increases vampires counter's like Bloodline Keeper  Flip are really helpful. in my opinion, consider adding a couple more higher costing cards if you have any like some with the ability bloodthirst . If there's any other cards I may recommend try Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, maybe Anowan, the Ruin Sage and I prefer Sanctum Seeker. A couple enchantment cards like one I personally use myself and highly recommend is Sanguine Bond and pricey but Exquisite Blood, out of everything though legion lieutenant is a really good choice for this deck, the lands are well balance but since its more of a black deck, try to go for that a bit more or balance them out with black/white cards as I tried to recommend. Anything else I can add it would be add an enchantment or two while maintaining a 60 card deck. Hope I helped in some way :). Joined a week ago.
