Hello Icbrgr, thank you for your compliments, I am glad you like the deck.

  • Sangromancer is quite powerful, and just like you said, not quite popular. She will never disappoint you.
  • Lashwrithe is an amazing artefact, and I am running tests with it. Based on your suggestion I found Dread Shade . This new creature is somewhat similar to the artifact and gives both; a much-needed punch to the deck, and a great target for the insane mana produced by Cabal Stronghold , that was wasted sometimes.
  • Rain of Tears is also a great suggestion, and I am currently testing it as well. However, it is a mixed bag. It is indeed more reliable than Contaminated Ground , but I deeply miss the extra damage cause by it.
  • Sorcerous Spyglass and Pithing Needle are pretty good against Planeswalker, just like you stated. But I think I have a pretty decent anti walker spell density in 4x Ruinous Path and 2x The Eldest Reborn . And we can factor in the 4x Duress and 4x Memoricide as well for game 2 and 3.
  • Ratchet Bomb is excellent! In all honesty I had forgotten the thing. I will try to buy some and find a spot in the deck for them.
Thank you very much.

very neat build! Ive never heard of Sangromancer before...that has "build around me!!!" written all over it.... some general tools that i think would be worth your consideration would be Lashwrithe which would/could be amazing equipped to an unchecked Vampire Nighthawk ....I think Rain of Tears might be better sideboard tech than Contaminated Ground and I think Pithing Needle / Sorcerous Spyglass are good Sideboard options to answer any planswalkers that the opponent manages to resolve.... Ratchet Bomb could be used too but its a bit slow but the best tool ive found in mono-black to deal with enchantments.

LadyZ, thanks for comments.

Maybeboard for this deck is some randome stuff near vampire theme from my card pool. So, I indicated that it is possible to advise cards not only from there. And I don't consider Duskmantle Prowler or Famished Paladin too.

Change Sangromancer on Bloodcrazed Paladin seems good. I think about change vampires with big manacost on more simple.

Think I don't need Anguished Unmaking right now. In our playgroup I don't see deck with graveyard interaction. So don't need change simple "destroy" on "exile".

About lands - best way to put in the deck both, Luxury Suite and Blood Crypt and something like Godless Shrine , but not right now.

Scratch that. I found my flaw with Sangromancer it does not pair with Mindcrank like I thought because mindecrank moves cards from your deck to your graveyard where sangromancer is activated by discards which are different. If you do not know a discard has to go from hand to graveyard where a staight to grave yard is deck to graveyard. I will be making more changes. One to slightly replace sangromancer and to add Profane Memento to fill that void.

Ok as you can see by the first couple of comments that I have changed a lot here since I first posted. Almost nothing is the same here. I took a lot of the advice from dingusdingo about not adding extra incentive to attack certain creatures because of a 2 for one situation. Where I would attach an enchantment or artifact to a creature and the creature would be destroyed. So once I removed that stuff it changed my entire prospective on what I had going. So now as you can see I’ve changed it up to a decking lifelink deck, if that makes sense. There are a few cards that trigger each other to where when an opponent loses life they discard the number of cards totaling the life lost Mindcrank , paired with Sangromancer that give me 3 life each time they discard, paired with Sanguine Bond which says whenever I gain life they lose life. So these make a big loop but also separate parts of the loops can be activated until you build a final loop. I know there are some cards that are better more expensive versions of cards I have here but still want to keep this deck lower cost but are open to some more expensive if they are just undeniably superior. Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you

I think you might want to replace Dimir Guildgate , Izzet Guildgate , and Rakdos Guildgate with Temple of Deceit , Temple of Epiphany , and Temple of Malice if you can work it into the budget. With the number of wheel effects you have, maybe consider some cards like Fell Specter , Megrim , or Sangromancer
