Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord Discussion

Any reason why you're not running any Sorins?

Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord plays into your gain life, hurt them strategy perfectly.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad consistent token generator.

And lost but not least Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord lets you play free vampires.

Sanguinary Mage can probably be cut due to prowess not really synergizing super well here with your creature theme.

Goblin Chainwhirler I would cut due to the 3 in its cost. While you run red in this deck, I feel that since it's your minority color you may struggle to cast it a lot of the time it's in your hand.

Personally I would get rid of Cloak and Dagger and even Scythe of the Wretched as well.

I get the party theme though so totally discount any recommendations that you feel undermine that too much for you.

Also in terms of the Sorin planeswalker you can run, I would swap out your current one and use Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord ideally, or even Sorin Markov.

Hey, nice first brew of Edgar.

Consider adding a few more black one drop Vamps? Knight of the Ebon Legion and Indulgent Aristocrat are one drops who can be good with aggro or midrange Vamp strategies. Cards you could cut for these are Mortify and Tithe Drinker.

Diabolic Intent is another tutor to consider adding replacing New Blood. Ruinous Ultimatum wrecks your opponents in multiplayer Commander, it could replace Fumigate. Champion of Dusk's ETB effect is excellent draw with eminence, it could replace Falkenrath Noble. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is good with aggro and midrange Vamp strategies especially with Edgar, it could replace Dark Impostor.

Consider adding some more dual lands that can ETB untapped turn one to make black and some dual lands that can make white to replace some Plains?

Lands to consider cutting for these are 3x Plains, 1x Mountain and Reliquary Tower.

Good luck with your deck.

Thanks for all the comments and suggestions, wasn't active on TappedOut for quite some time.
I've made few changes, add those cards:
Champion of Dusk
Coalition Relic
Cordial Vampire
Forerunner of the Legion
Ruinous Ultimatum
Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord
Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord

Took out:
Legion's Landing  Flip
Legion Lieutenant
Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
Harsh Mercy good card but way too many tribal decks in my group
Blood Baron of Vizkopa
Sorin, Solemn Visitor
Commander's Sphere

Comments and suggestions are more than welcomed. Might make some more changes and updates to all of my commander decks.

My bad. Missed it in my first perusing. Also, I don't know if you're interested in jank combos, Changeling Berserker, Changeling Hero and Changeling Titan is an infinite etb with any of your etb effects. Oh, and you can free drop a changeling with Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord.

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord lets your pull out ANY vampire from your hand to the field on turn 3. It is ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING but nevertheless it is a good vampire card. With that I would only recommend adding him if you plan on adding higher mana cost vampire like Nirkana Revenant (also disgusting).

Cordial Vampire is a must have in any Vampire deck. Whenever ANY creature dies ALL your vampires get a +1/+1 counter.

Since it looks like you have a lot of ways to add +1/+1 counters (very much so if you also have cordial vampire) I would recommend one The Ozolith. For one mana you get so much value from it.

This can definitely compete, vampires have some pretty good cards

I feel like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Vampire Nocturnus are the bee's knees in a mono black aggro deck. I'd instead cut Sanctum Seeker and Vampire of the Dire Moon to make room.

Instead of Vicious Conquistador and Gifted Aetherborn, what about Bloodghast and Viscera Seer? Between Sorin and seer this gives you a reasonable number of sac outlets to trigger Cordial Vampire and cheat extra power on the board. The scry also helps enable Vampire Nocturnus. Don't forget he can be cheated into play t3 with Sorin too, never underestimate cheating on mana.

The sideboard I'd add Duress over one of the removal spells as additional combo disruption, 3 Thoughtseize main seems ideal though

Hello again,

Glad to see you'll give some of the changes a try, I hope it works out well!

About Sanctum of Stone Fangs, I suggested adding 1 specifically because its legendary. It's a card that's nice to have on the board but it's really not "needed" by any means, and the 2nd one you get will always be a dead draw.

Speaking of draw, again I would highly recommend adding a few copies of Castle Locthwain since you don't have any other form of draw in the deck.

Btw, if you are very concerned about not wasting money on cards to get IRL, keep in mind that some of these cards like Knight of the Ebon Legion and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord will rotate out of standard in about 2 months.
