The truth of the matter is, I'm not sure what color(s) I am. However, if I got to choose, I would want to be .

Characters who I tend to find most interesting could easily be placed into these colors:

These are characters who are ambitious, cunning and ruthless in their pursuits of power and influence. However, they're also characters who have their own code of ethics and concern for an inner circle that they're willing to do whatever it takes to protect. These are qualities that I respect, these are qualities that I wish to emulate into my own life. This is the reason I think I'm .

Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite and Serra Ascendant in a Vampire deck? Seems a little bit weird. Conspiracy maybe... I also recommend to find a place for Blade of the Bloodchief. Not sure about Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx - I use it in monocolored decks only (just like Vampire Nocturnus - this guy is great in mono B Vampires but he is much less effective in Mardu builds). What do you think about Maze of Ith? Or Vesuva? Seems a little bit more interesting. I also see Sorin Markov in your maybeboard. You added Eldrazi Monument so token generators are much more preferable. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor for example. And yes, don't forget about Anointed Procession if you want to get tons of tokens. I also recommend to think about board wipes: Wrath of God, Day of Judgment, Damnation, Languish etc. Even Obliterate. Why not? Eerie Interlude + Obliterate and a very big surprise is guaranteed :)

Hey DRmagic2017, no matter how kindly Anowon, the Ruin Sage behaves, I don't see him in this deck. CMC is just too high for what he's got to offer since he's easy to remove and often doesn't survive till my next upkeep. I'm thinking about adding Sorin, Lord of Innistrad instead of Sorin, Solemn Visitor. I think I'd rather have a permanent boost for my creatures plus the token he provides don't need loyalty counters to happen. In my opinion Sorin Markov is superior in pretty much every way to Blood Tribute. For 6 CMC I would only consider cards that could possibly end the game and I just don't see Blood Tribute as such. I'm not sure about Blade of the Bloodchief because there is no instant effect but maybe I will add it to the deck. I see Coat of Arms as a finisher whereas Vanquisher's Banner just doesn't do the trick. The carddraw is too random and the boost is too low to make a huge impact most of the time. Sooner or later other Tutors will find their way into this deck but for now they're simply out of my budget. ;) Thanks a lot DRmagic2017 for your suggestions!

Anowon, the Ruin Sage is kindly asking to enter this deck. Sorin, Solemn Visitor also wants to reunite with his grandpa Edgar Markov. Blood Tribute is another Vampire themed card. I would also replace Coat of Arms with Vanquisher's Banner. And why didn't you add Blade of the Bloodchief? And tutors: for example Vampiric Tutor in a Vampiric deck - sounds great, eh?

Since the majority of cards in your deck are black, I suggest Vampire Nocturnus, while the buff is conditional it's very strong and fairly consistent, especially with any draw/scry effects.

Tithe Drinker and Olivia's Bloodsworn can be surprisingly effective, especially if you get them out early.

Blasphemous Act and Vandalblast can be effectively combined into Merciless Eviction.

Crackling Doom is really strong. Also, Blood Tribute. Blast 'em.

Legion's Landing could be put in maybe in place of a plains or something, since it flips into a land so easily? Also Radiant Destiny is good, especially once you get the vigilance, which isn't hard to do with the tokens.

Sorin Markov, Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are all strong additions, and cool flavor because your commander is already his granddad :P

Really cool deck, check out mine! ==> Russian Vampire Mafia

I did some playtesting against jund, and determined a few things:

Tireless Tracker isn't good enough in this deck. With no fetches, and a fairly low amount of lands, it doesn't feel like something I want to play on turn 3. It dies to lightning bolt, and pretty much every other removal spell without being much of a threat.

Sorin, Solemn Visitor is really good in this deck, even against something like Jund where I'm not as concerned with the life gain as much. The 2/2 fliers turned out to be very useful when their deck kept eating my creatures 1 for 1, and I could race them with a few of the fliers and life link. I also had scenarios where it was ticking up behind a big experiment one and strangeroot geist, and got to the ultimate quickly, which is very good against Jund. I suspect that it will have a similar power level against most matchups.

Lotleth Troll was a beast against Jund. If I could get it out along with another creature, it would usually stick unless they had Terminate. Both Lilianas couldn't deal with it much of the time.

Walking Ballista isn't all that amazing compared to the hype. Even with a few ways to get more counters on it, it felt clunky. It did get some good value most of the time, eating removal and killing dark confidant and Liliana on 1. But it didn't feel aggressive. Of course with a citadel siege it becomes nasty, but other than that it's just fine.

Ulvenwald Tracker was fine, even in a matchup with tons of removal like Jund. Generally if it got hit by a kill spell we weren't hurt too bad because we only paid 1 mana for it. And it was really good in response to kill spells, to get value out of our creatures. So if they are constantly removing your creatures and leaving ulvenwald alone, you could use it to 2 for 1 them against their own creature. It was also cool to use with strangleroot geist, because you could eliminate a blocker and pump the geist at the same time. In matchups with less removal, they are basically forced to kill it, which is good for us. If they don't, it will just keep killing their threats.
