Not going to lie, I would really hate to go against this deck when it gets going. It is as you said though, I would recommend adding cards that would let you draw more. I'm not entirely sure of some cards like that as I'm more of a dimir or mono green edh player myself. On some card suggestions though, I'm not sure why you have grand Coliseum or turnished Citadel. If you're using them for white mana, I'd recommend just using plains or something that doesn't damage you. I do understand the damage dealt is completely negligible, personally I'd just avoid it altogether. Now some cards I would recommend based on this set up are; Congregate , Serra's Guardian , Divine Visitation because why have humans when you can have Angels? Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite , Increasing Devotion , Angelic Accord , Angel's Feather , Ajani's Pridemate , and Haazda Marshal . Like I said, I'd personally would be interested and also hate myself for going against it when you start gaining life

Radius I like some of your suggestions, but, I don't quite agree with all of them, for this deck:

  • Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant and Concerted Effort + Pristine Angel are two/three (maybe not Pristine Angel?) swaps I'd be interested in, but finding what to change or remove is always difficult.

  • Serra's Guardian, Victory's Herald, and Angelic Guardian are all bodies I've considered, but I'm not sure what I'd swap out for them; they're on the more expensive casting cost side, and those spots are already filled.

  • Can't have 4 copies of sanctuary, but I do have one in the deck already.

  • The exile part on Urza's Ruinous Blast isn't something I'm a big fan of, by its definitely sideboard material.

  • I actually did run Helm of the Host for a while, but it was always too expensive to equip, and I was never really able to use it. Might try running it again, see if I can pull it off now with all the changes I've made.

Something important to remember is that with divine visitation your tokens will lose the lifelink they had as vampires, so consider adding cards like On Serra's Wings+Helm of the Host and Serra's Guardian for additional support during your early game. Hunted Witness is also a great one drop that can start gaining you tokens early

Ok so I'm going to say a lot of things so bear with me. If you are trying to play at a local game store, then you will need to make a lot of changes.

The card I would cut out are Arvad the Cursed Infectious Horror Paladin of the Bloodstained Serra's Guardian Lich's Caress Gruesome Fate Macabre Waltz Luminous Bonds Open the Graves

Card I Would Put in are (assuming you are willing to pay for them) Resplendent Angel Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants Lyra Dawnbringer Shield Mare Nightmare's Thirst Sovereign's Bite Seal Away Legion's Landing  Flip Vraska's Contempt Oathsworn Vampire Famished Paladin Moment of Craving Fountain of Renewal

The basic plan of what you want to do is play low cost creatures with a few high cost creatures that benefit from gaining a lot of life gain triggers. Since there is black you can add some removal to help slow the game down to your pace. Just make sure your deck fits this idea as close as it can and you will see the synergies work together. But make sure you are playing with good cards and not just anything that says gain life.

There is also always the option to just give your creature vigilance via Akroma's Memorial, Always Watching , Angelic Field Marshal, Angelic Skirmisher, Brave the Sands, Heliod, God of the Sun, Oathsworn Giant, or Serra's Guardian (there were more of those than I anticipated and not all are good, but i was committed by the time i realized how many there were.

Deck seems to want built in Jeskai, so I suggest Ruhan of the Fomori at the helm.
