Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond (if you want to go infinite)

Well i know my land base is low i was targeting to go near 36-38 lands, but i wasnt sure if the better option would be to add cards like Lotus Petal and Chrome Mox and maybe even Talisman of Indulgence and others or add basic land and maybe other good dual lands or utility lands i'm missing !

And I'll write the main goal tonight so you can better understand, while technically im trying to overun everyone with vampire that will drain each opponent as fast as possible with the possibility of the infinite combo Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood. Maybe some burn cards could help too?

Thanks again mate :)

I am jealous of this deck as I want to run Varina so badly but own very little to support an esper deck. I'm loving this build. You need to cut three cards still so here are my suggestions.

Sanguine Bond: Expensive play that does not interact with your commander. It may seem nice to have with all the lifelink potential but it will likely reveal itself to be slow and inefficient as you'll likely kill with your army horde before drawing this or making a big difference.

Cleansing Meditation: Honestly I would of picked Austere Command. Is this a meta considerate inclusion? You only run a 12 enchantments, which is a lot but not enough for this card to be here.

Liliana, the Last Hope: I love this card. I've ran it in my commander decks of the past. It is a great card.. in 60 card decks. I find it to be very underwhelming for what it does in commander especially if you're goal is to get to the ult. The minus ability is good but you could do better in a running Liliana, Death's Majesty instead.

Tidehollow Sculler: I could see this making an impact in 1v1 commander but a rather unremarkable pick for multiplayer which could do more harm than good with unnecessary hate coming your way.

Nantuko Husk: Underwhelming unless in 1v1 and you make it unblockable. Mostly because if you pump it up a lot you could potenital self sabotage yourself since it wont even stay in play.

Hope those suggestions were of some help, I'm sure you have reasons they're there I don't see and I don't know your playgroup to know why you have it as you have. My only other concern is the lack of focus in the mill department. It would make sense to have an all in deck with zombies but it seems like an part in mill, part in tribal, part in lifegain, part in creatures dying so these pieces on their own look to be disjointed. I'd be interested in hearing how it runs.

EDIT: I also wanted to note your color wheel shows you will be thirsting for black mana and have an excess of white mana with little to put it towards. Has this caused any problems?

Your list looks pretty interesting! You've included some of my Varina favorites, like Alhammarret's Archive, Library of Leng, Archfiend of Ifnir, and Rooftop Storm.

If mill is at all what you're interested in, I'd give Necromancer's Covenant a second look. It's an explosive token generator that gives all of your zombies a very relevant keyword ability, especially if you're running Sanguine Bond.

I'd highly suggest Sanguine Bond! IMHO there's no more iconic card for W/B lifegain than this :) Also, anything with Extort is amazing :D I have a few life-gain/drain-y decks that you could check out - if you don't mind my shameless self-plugging ;) Trickle, Trickle Little Life. yadda yadda, KNIFE!, The Danish Bank, Sanguine Chorus, and Sanguine Deluge are all cherished children of mine :)

stay frosty, and may you draw well!
