I don't think Gerrard Capashen is worth playing, especially if you're using Thalia's Lancers just to find him. I'd rather have some more ways to benefit from life-gain. Adding more Ajani's Pridemate or Sunbond will give you more board presence and make Wall of Reverence better. Add in some way to grant lifelink like Hopeful Eidolon, and the cycle gets pretty vicious. You might also consider dipping into black for drain cards like Vizkopa Guildmage and Sanguine Bond. It might be wise to try and fill the gap at 2 and 3 mana as well. Lone Rider  Flip is one card that could fit there.

The Rack and Shrieking Affliction will both kill your opponents long before you even get Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond up and running.

Here is a budget 8-Rack list that can be built for under $60 USD. I'd replace Stupor, however, with Unburden.

I also like that you're playing Torment of Hailfire. You can really ruin someone's day with that mid to late game when it can be cast for a large X.

Other stuff to think about would be Pack Rat and Languish. Pack Rat is also really good with Mutavault. Smallpox is great in a control and midrange heavy meta.

If you get a larger budget or can trade for cards, Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek (like others have mentioned) are both really good. Ensnaring Bridge is another. Liliana of the Veil, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, and Dark Confidant are probably the other options that I can think of off the top of my head.

Alliance of Arms also works well with Sanguine Bond, Defiant Bloodlord and Suture Priest, and it helps with cards such as Aetherflux Reservoir or Test of Endurance - so rather versatile and therefore a winner :-)

I've got some new ideas, tell me what you think about them:

1- Nasty AF combo:

Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond = GG

2- Cards that work very well with Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim

Vizkopa Guildmage

Kambal, Consul of Allocation

Debt to the Deathless

Tree of Perdition

3- Removal and boardwipes:

Merciless Eviction

Return to Dust

Utter End


Austere Command

4- Maybe it could help you go off faster with some combos

Welcome to magic. You have Exquisite Blood add Sanguine Bond and you have a winning combo. Its a ongoing effect together. and maybe add Crypt Ghast it doubles your swamps. And last you can putt in Archetype of Finality your apponents wil not be happy butt you play to win.

My suggestion was Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood butt you sad it in your description. I think that would be a nice add to this deck. +1
