Skeletal Vampire Discussion

Also, I doubt that this could be an option but I know an interesting card that can synergise well with this deck.
This Momentary Blink can actually be a counterspell through Torrential Gearhulk, if you choose Unwind or Rewind, it actually untaps more lands than you've used. That's very helpful to cast a full powered Sphinx's Revelation at your opponent's endphase.
I'm new here so let me just relink you correctly my decklist :
Things I added :
Wrexial, the Risen Deep (not very strong but cool card)

These would be on my shortlist to replace: Crimson Honor Guard, Kheru Mind-Eater, Licia, Sanguine Tribune, Mathas, Fiend Seeker, Skeletal Vampire, Tithe Drinker, Vein Drinker, Skeletal Scrying, Kabira Crossroads, Curse of Disturbance, Curse of Vitality, Outpost Siege, Sanguine Bond, Consuming Vapors, Damnable Pact, Well of Lost Dreams
These are the first things I'd try to find a place for: Legion Lieutenant, Forerunner of the Legion, Champion of Dusk, Indulgent Aristocrat, Sanctum Seeker, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Bishop of Rebirth, Mirror Entity,Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Vanquisher's Banner, Stensia Masquerade, Cathars' Crusade
If you're willing to spend the money these seem worth it to me: Shared Animosity, Anointed Procession, Phyrexian Arena, Twilight Prophet, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Bloodline Keeper Flip, Drana, Liberator of Malakir
You can also go to edhrec.com and look up your commander to find a list of suggestions for the deck.
In general, it's a good idea to replace a card with one that does something similar. Like replace something that draws cards with something else that draws cards, or something that removes you opponents' stuff with something else that does that. The deck is already well balanced so you mostly just need to put in some upgrades and take out the cards that aren't focused. Also try to be careful not to replace too many cards with other cards that cost more mana.
You can spend almost as much money upgrading a mana base as you like. In particular, you want to replace lands that come into play tapped with ones that don't. These are some lands you could get that are relatively cheap: Unclaimed Territory, Caves of Koilos, Battlefield Forge, Smoldering Marsh, Graven Cairns, and Foreboding Ruins
Vault of the Archangel doesn't get you colored mana but it offers some great utility.

@EchoSpice: Firstly, thank you for your input, your insight is highly appreciated, and I've looked at your vampire deck. Fairly impressive overall. Secondly, all of your suggestions are actually exactly what this deck needed. (Especially Skeletal Vampire, Vein Drinker and Cathars' Crusade, I can't believe I forgot about those)Thirdly, while I will agree that Ashnod's Altar and Phyrexian Altar are not entirely necessary, I believe that having at least one free sacrifice outlet could prove useful.

check out my vampire deck, its pretty alright and does decent in tournies. I don't think Ashnod's Altar or Phyrexian Altar are really necessary, you could swap them out for more vamps. some favs of mine are Skeletal Vampire and Vein Drinker, but if they aren't what you're looking for, Greed is good for draw, and Cathars' Crusade pumps your creatures twice as fast with Edgar's eminence, or even 3 times as fast if you have Anointed Procession out.

If you're on a budget, Skeletal Vampire might be able to do what you need it to.

You might like Skeletal Vampire as a bit of late-game muscle!

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.
