I'm probably going to keep the format modern, Hexaflexagon because I'm a low budget MTG player, and this deck will need to last me for a long time. I'm thinking about making it a three-color, as red vampires appear pretty powerful. Thank you YamishiTheWickedOne for the Ideas, and IlLupo643 for the advice about the Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood . I'm going to make a lot of revisions to this deck!!

Sorin Markov, Bloodlord of Innistrad is my B/W Vampires. I used to use the Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood combo, but the game ends in a tie if your opponent doesn’t scoop, you have to break the loop or it lasts forever. Mortify can get it done. And Forsaken Sanctuary will only only slow you down. Add a few plains and more swamps or less mana

I'm a fairly new player to this game, so if my advice isn't the best then I'm sorry. Personally, I'd run some more removal, as you have none right now. Some removal might be Murder , Hero's Downfall or for lifegain, you could use Fumigate . I also would suggest removing Epicure of Blood and you could replace it with Sanguine Bond .

The maybe board is definitely going in, it's just in the mail. And if I get too many complaints, I'll take out Sanguine Bond , too. But I'm keeping Defiant Bloodlord

Your statement about Marven not going in the deck is the same reason I cut him from mine. Too slow. You still have alot of cards that I think can be cut just for better stuff in general that you have in your Maybe board IMO all those cards go in and you have enough stuff that should be cu, but you are moving in the right direction!!! Also be aware of the infinite combo from Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood . Once it starts you cant stop it, and that gets hated out of alot of groups. I took out Sanguine Bond for that purpose alone. Now granted they are not on field at the same time often but alot of people in your group or LGS may not like the infinite combo. Unless you are playing CEDH.

But great job on making improvements!

Just in case you weren't aware, you're not allowed to run Behind the Scenes according to official EDH rules since it has white in its colour identity.

Among recent-ish cards that your local store is reasonably likely to have, I would recommend Neheb, the Eternal for both theme and great ramp. Having playtested against the deck it also feels like it could use more card draw, and I would recommend Erebos, God of the Dead or Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip or any other Greed -variant they might have in.

Speaking of, Whip of Erebos could help you gain back that life you paid and works great with your Sanguine Bond and Epicure of Blood .

Hazoret's Monument can ramp early and get rid of excess lands for more gas later. Pseudo-draw from Outpost Siege or Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip would probably also do very well.

Angrath's Marauders are a one-sided damage doubler with a flavour connection to Angrath.

Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic and Obelisk of Urd are tribal staples and can help your minotaurs get big enough to attack through small or medium creatures. Stoneforge Masterwork is also solid. Door of Destinies and Shared Animosity are the big boys of tribal buffs, but since they're a bit older they can be harder to find, and the latter is quite expensive as well.

While a bit more pricey, Caged Sun and Gauntlet of Power (and the very expensive Gauntlet of Might ) are powerful in both boosting your mana and your creatures. Crypt Ghast only does one of the two, but costs a bit less and is slightly easier to find. (Note that the symbol is in reminder text and does not give the card a white colour identity).

I hope I've given you some ideas!

vdoz530 on Aggro Tribe: Mono Black Vampires

Just like before I have made the revelation that what I thought was a cool loop is nothing more than a half combo that only slows down Sanguine Bond & Exquisite Blood which is slow and barley competitive as it is. I hope if there is anyone watching my slow crawl through mono Black they can use this info not to make the same mistakes. I will be searching for another compliment to the mono Black vamps and will take suggestions.
