Skeletal Vampire Discussion
5 days ago
I personally don't think Pawn of Ulamog deserves a spot in the deck, but that's because I'm playing a full out aggressive deck. I don't really like the life-gain aspect of vampires if it's front and center, so Licia, Sanguine Tribune, Tithe Drinker, Falkenrath Noble, and Vampire Nighthawk came out as well. I also cut Vein Drinker, Skeletal Vampire, Blood Baron of Vizkopa, Kheru Mind-Eater, Bloodhusk Ritualist, Crimson Honor Guard and Sangromancer.
All of this is what I cut from my deck, because its a beatdown/swarm deck. Things that take away from that don't deserve a spot. Butcher of Malakir is still in because I can kill my things to make them lose things, so I can punch them.
All and all, I think that you definitely should play some games with the precon, and see what does and doesn't work for you. I have a friend who plays Licia, Sanguine Tribune and goes for more of a pillowfort/lifegain deck. It's really up to you. Hope this helped.

I'm surprised there's no Vona, Butcher of Magan. He costs less mana than Butcher and hits more targets for a mere 7 life. Also Impact Tremors or Purphoros, God of the Forge are cheaper than Warstorm Surge.
As far as the cards go, I'd recommend non-taplands rather than taplands, since 3+ color mana bases are very intensive on color; so I'd advise foregoing the cycle lands.
Here's my take on the deck, feel free to ask about cards and take suggestions from it:

Thanks for your advice Austin_Smith_of_Cards, I'm going to try out these changes:
Skeletal Vampire looks fun and cheap, I might spring for one.
I thought the same thing when I pulled Portent out of my jank box, had never seen this card before, but it seems like a pretty solid stand-in for Ponder. I've found a couple more (total of 3), but not sure what else to cut if anything.

Portent seems like an interesting take on a Ponder variant that would be useful for early topdeck manipulation; crucial for control.
Your ability to close out games seems kind of narrow, with Bone Picker as your only genuine wincon. I would add a couple fatties like the Skeletal Wurms, or if you want to acquire other cards, Skeletal Vampire and Champion of Stray Souls seem cool.
If you're looking for cut options, Gorgon Flail doesn't really make sense in this list, and you could probably go down to 23 lands.

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.
Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

After a few months of trading and acquiring, here are the changes to the deck:
Not much of a gameplan change, just some upgrades and trying new folk out from C17 and Ixalan

In my experience, I am rarely the one who wants to wrath, and Kindred Dominance was just too high on the curve for me. I have been playing Edgar for a little bit, and I have found that I want to run as low to the ground as I can. Draw is definitely what you need, and I would cut some of your more expensive vampires for it, like Skeletal Vampire or Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief for it. For me, for a vampire to cost 4+ he has to do something amazing.
