Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

I like your deck. I play a similar one.

How did Elspeth, Knight-Errant perform and how do you compare it to the two 4 cmc Sorins? (Sorin, Solemn Visitor and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad) I would miss the lifegain of these cards, but Elspeth seems nice with Gideons.

I don't like the Ghostly Prison, since it can't protect the walkers and they are the heart of the deck.

Personally I find your deck better now than it was before, I really apreciate the shift to Esper, but I'll make some little changes:

I'd cut Rootborn Defenses, to get the synergy you need 7 mana, and what about if an opponent has a Remand? Obviously this isn't such big problem, but consider that Rootborn Defenses gives your creatures indestructible and puts only a 1/1 on the battlefield. If you really want to have that synergy in your deck I suggest you Make a Stand (because a +1 +0 to all creatures is better than a token), or Selfless Spirit.

Just one technical term: combo is something that goes infinite or that instantly makes you win the match (for example infinite mana with Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth or Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank , synergy is when two cards have effects that do really well when used both.

As for the lands think about Godless Shrine, Hallowed Fountain, Flooded Strand, Glacial Fortress, Fetid Heath, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Irrigated Farmland, they are very helpful if you need specifical colours. In my opinion you should reduce them, I find 24 too much.

As for planeswalker here are some good for your deck: Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Knight-Errant.

Think about Zealous Persecution. It could be useful to boost your creatures and make less stronger the opponent ones.

I don't know if you want to add some things that will make you see your opponent's hand and discard some cards (personally I'd put some), but here are some names: Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek, Tidehollow Sculler, Duress, Despise, Kitesail Freebooter.

And here are some other removals: Day of Judgment, Damnation, Supreme Verdict, Anguished Unmaking, Path to Exile, Fatal Push, Utter End.

A couple of suggestions with the goals you have in mind. Granted, they all aren't immediately obtainable.

Immediate vampires, however there are many other cards which create tokens to feed your self sacrificing strats,

eg. Zulaport Cutthroat

severininfurs on Vampires, am I right?

I like Vampire Nocturnus but I worry about the BBB cost in 3 colors. Also, he seems a bit high in CMC for an aggro deck. Have you considered Asylum Visitor? She has madness without Falkenrath Gorger and can give you a bit of extra card draw. Faithless Looting could help you cycle through your deck and you get another card to help activate your madness cards.

I personally would probably remove the Sorin, Lord of Innistrad if you are going low to the ground, and just go 4x Legion's Landing then perhaps swap 2x Unclaimed Territory for 2x Concealed Courtyard. That would also allow you to go down to 2 or maybe even 1 plains. Overall, I think the land count seems kind of high for a quicker deck like it seems you're wanting. I think 22 is right, maybe even 21 or 20 if you cut the Vampire Nocturnus and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad.

Legion's Landing is a more than viable one drop for the deck. Also, planeswalker uniqueness rule going away means Sorin, Lord of Innistrad could replace Gideon, Ally of Zendikar as our second planeswalker, though I don't think that is correct personally.

may want Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and/or Sorin, Solemn Visitor over your current planeswalkers, as both make vampire tokens. Nameless Inversion and Crib Swap offer neat removal that nets you a token (as they are both vampire spells due to tribal changeling).

Skullclamp can replace some of the pay life to draw cards, as clamping a token is effectively kicker: draw 2 for vampire spells. Indulgent Aristocrat and Bloodline Keeper  Flip are solid tribal "lords"

and Gatekeeper of Malakir is amazing, but woefully forgotten. hope this helps!

I'd at least suggest putting in Sorin, Lord of Innistrad. His second ability is the most permanent counter you'll ever find =)
