Skymarcher Aspirant Discussion

I'd like to see more token generation in the lower slots- convoke payoffs are amazing, but cutting a few to get a threat on the board that can scare 3 mana plainswalkers is essential for pioneer. More raise the alarm, more marshal.
In terms of 1 drops, Legion's Landing Flip Hunted Witness , Cartouche of Solidarity , Skymarcher Aspirant / Snubhorn Sentry , Thraben Inspector exist. If you make bigger tokens, Wake the Reflections can work. Springleaf Drum helps power out low-mana creatures.
Voice of Resurgence is the strongest 2 drop available for this list.
Further up the curve, Launch the Fleet , Countless Gears Renegade / Servo Exhibition , Dwynen's Elite , Animation Module / Anafenza, Kin-Tree Spirit , Hero of Precinct One , Lovestruck Beast , Murder Investigation Precinct Captain , Thorn Lieutenant , Westvale Abbey Flip and Hanweir Militia Captain Flip
In terms of sidebord, we'll see how the meta shapes up, but Alive / Well , Dryad Militant are worth looking at beside standard options. Druid's Deliverance if vannafar combo takes off. Sundering Growth as an artifact answer.

So I want to start by saying everything in my previous comment still stands, so I won't go over anything I already discussed there. That said, let's take a look at what you've changed.

Specifically for Historic, I think Vampires will remain relevant. I tried a bit to comment on that with my article covering the "design space" of Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord - I really think that any future beefy Vampire will keep the vampire tribe relevant. Particularly 5cmc or bigger, because of the ability for Sorin to land it on turn three and still remain on the field itself! It's also why I am not high on Skymarcher Aspirant , it's a weak card, but as sets come out, the very best 1-drops will only improve the deck. Knight of the Ebon Legion is an example of an incredibly pushed 1-drop that along with Sorin has made Vampires top tier. I think with Historic, Vampires will continue to be strong. The back-bone of the deck is it's colours and Black and White always have the best removal and flexible answers for whatever problems the meta throws up. So with great interaction and aggressive threats, I think Vampires is worth spending Rare wildcards on!

Oh other side note on black, the best creature in MtG that isn't named Tarmogoyf is Dark Confidant , aka "Bob", named for an infamous cheater he was designed by and named after. The guy embodied Black perfectly. This card is seen in vamps sometimes, with Asylum Visitor being the 5th Bob, also used in Jund at times.
Dreadbore , Rakdos Charm , Kaya's Guile , Falkenrath Gorger Skymarcher Aspirant , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician , Slaughter Pact , Murderous Cut , Lightning Helix , Liliana's Triumph , and newly legal Unearth . Just random other Mardu cards. Mardu = Red/Black/White, Rakdos = Red/Black.

Ok, so I cracked vampires code on arena. You need Adanto Vanguard , Benalish Marshal , Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord , Skymarcher Aspirant , Vampire of the Dire Moon , and maybe Knight of the Ebon Legion , Godless Shrine

Hey if you want consistency with this deck better increase your cards 3s and 4s here. A deck with just one-ofs of random cards isn't gonna get you anywhere my man. I got some cards w/ number of copies you could work around with:
4x Legion Lieutenant ; 4x Vicious Conquistador ; 3x Indulgent Aristocrat ; 4x Concealed Courtyard ; 4x Bump in the Night ; 4x Thoughtseize ; 3x Martyr of Sands ; 3x Captivating Vampire ; 4x Skymarcher Aspirant ; 3x Yahenni, Undying Partisan .
