Hey there, looks like the deck is on its way and a lot of the cards I was going to suggest are already in your maybe board but here are a couple id consider:

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar offer tokens and really awesome anthems.

Eldrazi Monument is great with all the sacrifice fodder you will have.

Patriarch's Bidding just spiked unfortunately, but Living Death is worth considering too. Hope that helps!

While I do agree the Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is my weakest walker I just do not see Samut, the Tested as well, test worthy. A planeswalker should never be judged based solely off its ultimate and both her +1 and -2 are inconsequential for a creatureless/light list such as mine. I do think she is strong, but as a package it just isn't right for this deck.

Having not played the deck, it is hard to say what to remove, but I will say that with doubling season Samut, the Tested is basically a super friends tooth and nail. Any two walkers on the field when you get that combo.

There are a few arguments that I could try to make for what to remove, but ultimately you are the one using it, and you know better than me what works well for the deck and what doesn't. That being said, here are my picks for potential removal:

Garruk Wildspeaker- with the rest of the deck comp it seems like he's mainly useful for untapping lands. The 3/3 token every turn just doesn't seem impactful for edh, and his ult certainly doesn't. If I'm right, then I feel like samut is worth testing here because of the potential value of her ult. while I'll admit her two other abilities are no good either, i think the combo potential warrants a test.

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad- for a similar reason to garruk. It seems like only his 3rd ability is what you want to me, and he isn't the only walker you have that can have that sort of effect on the game, so the ability to fetch and play any two walkers seems strong in this slot as well. I'm actually less confident in how I feel about replacing him, because he's still really good. I just wanted to give at least two options I considered viable.

dlamars Did I hear Impact Tremors!? I think it's perfect for the deck (and a pet card of mine), I'll add it in asap!

I just traded my Living Death away, agh. I'll add in Phyrexian Reclamation, however. I agree that the deck feels a little too light on recursion.

I know I can maybe trade for an Anointed Procession, if not I may just get it later. Same goes with Sorin, Lord of Innistrad.

shaftdiggity I was thinking of adding Blood Seeker for more life drain too. I have Throne of the God-Pharaoh in another deck of mine, so probably not gonna add it in since I like variety in my decks haha.

I'm personally against French vanilla creatures in EDH as they're low-impact (that's why no Nighthawk) imo. However, Edgar's ability triggers whenever you cast a vampire, so I may reconsider the cheaper vampires to maximize his ability.

LVL_666 Lmao I completely blanked over that. I was more of thinking of the title as a twist to "Who's your daddy now?" Since my friends joke about that sorta stuff. Quite a bit of my deck titles are like that, actually haha. Hope you enjoy watching this deck grow as much as I will!

Oh Akuma, You're right. Had a bit of a brainfart there but was under the impression you would have to target Licia - which you don't, so it's all good. Edgar Markov is really the Vampire tribal overlord yeah - I don't make that many tokens in this deck. Think it's just Bloodline Keeper and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad that have the potential. Mynea is a nice addition from Ixalan, now that I looked.. so is Sanguine Sacrament. And I thought waiting for C17 was bad :'(.

Chiri! deathtouch and lifelink are certainly formidable! especially when you have first strike too hehe. I'm not sure about adding Serra Ascendant, it's a great 1-drop that is basically a 6/6 always, but it being a monk bothers me a bit - this is just me being petty though! it's a great card. As for Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.. not a fan of the Zombies. Yes you get them for free, and you can even sac them to make Kalitas stronger, and he's a 3/4 for 4 with lifelink. Tons of value and I should really be playing him.. but I won't, for now.

I was looking for Sunbond, should add more value to our lifegain spells as well.

Forgot to add Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Anointed Procession would also be great.

I don't know what your budget will be but i can point you a few cards to help out Debt to the Deathless and Sorin Markov is an awesome combo for me and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is a token generator and his emblem is super helpful Olivia Voldaren is a great way to steal creatures and to search your key pieces Diabolic Tutor Vampiric Tutor Demonic Tutor Enlightened Tutor

Have you considered Sorin, Lord of Innistrad? It has a cheap anthem and makes some lifelink tokens. The ultimate is solid when you reach it.
