Sorin, Grim Nemesis Discussion

I wonder if a creature count closer to 30 (or more) would help with the tribal synergies (or with Athreos triggers if you keep it). I'm thinking of Knight of Dusk, Knight of Dawn, and the like. Haakon, Stromgald Scourge seems like a great recovery card.
Maybe more anthem effects, as well, and cost reduction cards to help ramp, like Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, Vanquisher's Banner, Herald's Horn, Semblance Anvil, Urza's Incubator. There's also Crusade, Honor the Pure, Divine Sacrament, Metallic Mimic, Mirror Entity, and Bad Moon.
The big idea, I think, is to increase your creature count, add more anthems, and play a few alt win cons (like Altar + X spells) and a few bring-everything-back spells. Otherwise, you might get caught between your tribal plan and reactivity.
Have fun brewing!

I noticed in your "Lich Only" combo section, you have "Necropotence Draw your library." You can't draw your library if you're at 0, since you can't pay the life you don't have. Not saying you can't gain life throughout your deck, just sort of throwing it out there. It seems like a nonbo to me (like if you have Platinum Emperion when you go to pay life, since you can't pay more than 0 with it in play).
Maybe Bob would be fun to put in, maybe Sorin, Grim Nemesis as well.
But deck looks great and very fun. +1

You can make this deck a lot faster without losing to much value by reducing some cards with hight mana cost, at this moment its sees like a mid range kinda trying to be aggro but to slow: Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin Markov, New Blood, Black Market,Bloodsworn Steward, Olivia Voldaren,Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Decree of Pain then you can add 1 mana drops, the presure you can generate is impressing, Pulse Tracker, Vicious Conquistador, Shadow Alley Denizen, Vampire Cutthroat. Consider Purphoros, God of the Forge for hard killing potential x 2 because of edgar and Erebos, God of the Dead as indestructible greed that cancels life gain and can hit eventually. with cheap vampires i would use Legion's Landing and Springleaf Drum instead of signets and/or 3 mana rocks. from here i would improve the quallity and refinement of some cards: do you really need Mindcrank? do i want to give lifes in an agroo deckSwords to Plowshares or better a land Path to Exile? is it worth a Dismember over Go for the Throat or Hero's Downfall?. Ultimatly it depends ond how you want the deck to work, this is an agrro recomendation but if you want to consolidate midrange, i would suggest to go with a ton of life link and life gaining gimmiks.

So if you can't include "auto wins" (which is lame, but understandable), you're best playing a really flexible midrange deck.
Some includes I'd suggest:
-- razaketh, the foulblooded
-- Lightning Greaves are good
-- Silence time walks someone.
-- Bitter Ordeal is pretty brutal in your deck.
-- Lingering souls seems low value as a one-off.
-- Sensei's Top.
-- Smokestack is easy to mitigate for you but brutal on your opponents.
-- Meekstone seems good here.

Also Fatespinner, while nice for you, is also nice for your opponents, as they can just skip their draw phase as well, therefore not losing 3 life on their turn.

I said they are this deck's biggest problem.
I have won quite a few games with Shambling Vent, as I said above.
You keep talking about Control as if it has an unending stream of cards.
This deck can not only run it dry, but it has win cons that Control just can't effectively deal with.
Sure, you can keep saying "but what if they Counter that spell?"
As for life gain, don't forget that Sorin, Grim Nemesis can give you six life the Turn he drops.
At this stage, it has become apparent that you haven't playtested this deck, and are just theorising about how it plays, so the conversation has become pointless, and I'll not continue it.
