are you really having trouble "getting" creatures out? or do you mean you have trouble "keeping" creatures out because your opponent has removal?

definitely take out Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . its really just for mono colored decks. also, turn 8 is horrifically slow in modern.

get rid of the enchantments. in modern, 5 mana is too expensive for a card that doesn't have some sort of immediate impact on the game state.

Hero's Downfall is inefficient. 3 mana is generally too much mana for a removal spell. Fatal Push and Path to Exile are really good removal spells.

Chalice of Life  Flip is also inefficient given how little reliable lifegain you have.

Souls of the Faultless should be taken out since its not a vampire.

Vampire Nocturnus would be better than Bloodline Keeper  Flip or Sanctum Seeker in the 4-drop slot.

Forerunner of the Legion is painfully slow in modern, and Vampire Nighthawk would be way better as a 3-drop.

Hey Technowyvern!

You might want some cards such as Cordial Vampire , Kalastria Highborn , Sanctum Seeker , Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Pawn of Ulamog (replacement for Sifter of Skulls , Legion Lieutenant , Stromkirk Captain , Drana's Emissary , Malakir Bloodwitch , Necropolis Regent , Cliffhaven Vampire (combine with lifelink for infinite damage + life), Rakish Heir , Indulgent Aristocrat , Bloodlord of Vaasgoth , and Defiant Bloodlord .

BTW What is the FNM EDH meta like at Cerberus? I'm about to complete my Angelhorde Invasion deck so anything that would help in the meta or a rough idea of some of the meta decks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Good Luck,

the basic identity of the deck is ping for 1 life and i gain 1 life. i like the Luminous Bonds because it stops amass decks also it really works in arena. i build this deck in arena and so far pretty good. i built around Epicure of Blood Sanctum Seeker and Cruel Celebrant they tend to stack really nice. i only threw in the Legion Lieutenant to boost Call to the Feast with the others. i rarely ever win by hitting and opponent with creatures but by the act of chump attacking while the Cruel Celebrant is out. if i get lucky and have all 3 out they combo really nice. I have added Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord and Conclave Tribunal great suggestions btw! really bring shit up a notch. i have been going to the dragons refuge in Kankakee, but only on Sunday(for fnm) lol. they have a lot of players play commander on Friday and so i have drove over there multiple times only to get "not enough players tonight" from the dude there. He said that they do standard on Sundays at 2pm so i was going to try that. really good crowd there. Kristi and I went last Saturday to the pre-release and had a blast. not too serious players just a lot of "older" people having fun. Not sure if i can sneak out this Sunday but i was going to try. need to get some more modern horizons packs to pull a damn Urza! i did get a Yagamoth and a Sierra so i am not too mad but i need that Urza dammit!

Main idea is to run Vampire Tribal Aggro as a plan B because I see that key payoff cards for Aristocrats are actually vampires. With Eminence I take advantage of additional bodies be it to aggro overrun or sacrifice payoffs. In a build like this I actually want to cast 1-2 CMC creatures and 2-3 CMC lords to make them threats themselves so there's no need to look for powerful effects, however there are still some like Malakir Bloodwitch or Sanctum Seeker but I keep only the best of them because of Ad Nauseam .

And that's how I found your deck on my way to better understand this archetype and what proportions of food/sac outlets/payoffs are.

For combos e.g. Oathsworn Vampire + Phyrexian Altar goes infinite so one of Blood Artist effects gets me win.

Deck in question: Dracu-Leeeee, Dracu-Laaaaa!

I originally envisioned this deck as a Madness themed one but found issues with it firing consistently. Since I don't want to lose my Vampire tribal theme I thought I'd go with more of a mid-range approach.

In the case of the above deck is it better to go with card hand disruption and card draw early on (e.g. Night's Whisper or should I go with hand disruption and low cost threats? e.g. Vampire Nighthawk and/or Gifted Aetherborn ?

I'm also looking at whether or not to keep in Mastermind's Acquisition or replace it with +1 more Vampire Nocturnus and/or Sanctum Seeker s.

Thank you in advance to anyone whom can help! I really appreciate your advice.

Note: I am planning on saving up for more Cavern of Souls if I need those or budget alternatives like Unclaimed Territory .

Hi! I feel like this could be turned into a pretty spicy Commander deck with Vona, Butcher of Magan ! Anyway, I think that something like Sanctum Seeker is a “must include” in any vampire deck, specially with a lifedrain subtheme!
