Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion

I feel like the moxes don’t really fit here too well. You need to have Elspeth, Sun's Champion and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as must-run token planeswalkers. I would also seriously look into Vindictive Vampire, Woe Strider, and both of the Athreos gods.
Also, Giver of Runes seems out of place here. Is there really a point? Weathered Wayfarer is also a somewhat odd choice. You’re at 36 lands and are only in two colors - one being black. I don’t think you need this kind of land tutor (but that’s just me).
There are some other things I’d change (I used to run Teysa, Orzhov Scion for a very long time and enjoyed her before I switched to Teysa Karlov), but I don’t want to sound mean or anything like that. It’s a nice deck, but some of the choices give me the try-hards (like the moxes for example). But hey dude, if you dig it and it brings you joy, keep doing what you’re doing!

I don't think it's right to allow a continuous creation of deathtouch tokens from a land, but the flying and lifelink are good.
It would be kinda daunting to see this land untapped with 3 available mana whenever you would attack with a land walker.

Why only 1xsorin?
Sorin, Grim Nemesis or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord if you wanted to splice in some White through either Duel Lands or Artifacts. Hell, a couple Lotus Field s would work even Unknown Shores could do the trick.
Also, I'd trade in Barren Moor Bojuka Bog Castle Locthwain Piranha Marsh for 4x Westvale Abbey Flip They'll never see that coming and it plays into the story of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and since the Shadowspear is made from pieces of the Helvault you could add one of them.
Indulgent Aristocrat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , & Vampire Outcasts I would personally replace them with 3x Bloodthirsty Aerialist s but they can be replaced with Knight of the Ebon Legion , Dark Impostor , & Child of The Night for a much better effect.

Also, I really dont think Sorin, Lord of Innistrad should be in the deck. He has no value except for pumping out tokens, and honestly, Liliana, Dreadhorde General is just way more value plus she draws cards and has an explosive ult that can win games, especially in a deck like yours.

Nim Deathmantle also combos real nice with Ashnod's Altar. Karmic Guide plus Reveillark also make for a fantastic Infinite loop for you Blood Artist effects plus the ability for standalone utility as recursion pieces.
Altar of the Brood makes for a low cmc finisher for infinite loops as well.
In general I strongly recommend lowering your average cmc to present more early game relevance.
Also a couple specific Planeswalkers help with a backup plan when primary combo fails and you gotta go token beatdown.
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar immediate ult, buffing all dudes and impossible to remove.
Sorin, Lord of Innistrad again immediate emblem buff.
Ajani, Strength of the Pride that 0 ability ult is easily obtainable and puts us in a prime position to win.
Elspeth, Sun's Champion board wipe, massive token producer, and back-breaking ult with token swarm.
Thumbs up and an upvote for the Primer.

Right, "for each card drawn this way" is different because it actually does care about the result. Similar to effects that destroy some things and then have another effect based on how many of those things actually went to the graveyard ( Terastodon , Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , etc.).

Does Ghave, Guru of Spores have a "specific deck type, as in is he better as a combo oriented deck or straight out mid range ish token style deck? Or both?
I ask because I appearently have a copy of him, and I used to play black white tokens in modern back around 2015( obviously meta is way different now). Is ghave geared toward generic token generation, a few planes walkers, and anthem affects, or is he "better" as a sacrifice combo deck?
Imput please. I have cards laying around from modern and standard back then like... Spectral Procession , Lingering Souls , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Bitterblossom Sorin, Lord of Innistrad etc etc to name a few. I also understand cards like Grave Pact are good with him.
