Sorin, Solemn Visitor Discussion

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with every one of your creatures safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and untap every one of those creatures at the most opportune time.

It untaps to avoid bad blocks (obvious face value of the card). It also lets you untap after first strike damage but before normal combat is dealt (handy for for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and disgusting with Stromkirk Captain). Lastly, you can untap even after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

This combination of full tilt aggro with everyone available to block makes Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 really really good (note 'until your next turn'). Oh and consider Diabolic Intent for a great tutor here (that will never be more reasonably priced).

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It also has over 100 comments worth of card discussion and alternative ideas in general. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I'll try to break down my suggestions by category.

First, Finishers: Reconnaissance (look up rulings on this card... it's stupid good), Mirror Entity, and Shared Animosity.

Card Draw: Dark Prophecy, Greed, Twilight Prophet, and Necropotence.

Life Gain: Sorin, Solemn Visitor, Exquisite Blood, and Sanguine Bond.

Ramp: Fellwar Stone and Talisman of Indulgence.

Board Protection: Boros Charm and maybe Rootborn Defenses if you see a lot of wraths.

Feel free to check out my list for other ideas... there's over 100 comments worth of card discussion also. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I'd recommend Sorin, Solemn Visitor as it is another anthem effect, as well as more efficient removal such as Fatal Push over Doom Blade. The mana base is a bit lopsided, with equal amounts of Swamp and Plains in a deck with more white than black. However, I like this deck, it looks fun, interesting, and new to the format.

i like the idea. the deck dose 2 things really well, drains life and keeps your opponents on the back foot. the other thing i need to be good at but is currently stuggerling with is evasion, as without solid evasion, tempo style control your going to struggle to utilise the ninjas to there best. some suggestions, a mix of vampire lords, general lord effects, some ninja staples
Reveillark Baleful Strix Stormscape Familiar Whispersilk Cloak Thief of Sanity Vampire Cutthroat Twilight Prophet Bident of Thassa Thassa, God of the Sea Patron of the Vein Yahenni, Undying Partisan Anowon, the Ruin Sage Captivating Vampire Blade of the Bloodchief Lazav, the Multifarious Drana, Liberator of Malakir Dictate of Heliod Sanctum Seeker Door of Destinies Whip of Erebos Always Watching Radiant Destiny

and not to forget the vampire planeswalker that makes flying vampires ;)

Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Sorin, Solemn Visitor Sorin, Grim Nemesis

there are of course lots of addinal more fantastic cards that would work well with this theme but these are some of the better budget options

First, you seem to be missing 2 cards, you've only got 98 in your list.

Now for some suggestions...

Reconnaissance needs to be in this list. It allows you to attack with every creature, untap to avoid bad blocks, untap after first strike damage but before normal damage, and even untap after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being 'attacking' until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

Now for a few cards with much smaller explanations lol...

Card Draw is lacking, consider Herald's Horn, Necropotence, Dark Prophecy, Greed, and Twilight Prophet.

Boros Charm - wraths are the bane of this deck, protect your board. Talisman of Indulgence/Fellwar Stone both deserve spots. Shared Animosity needs to be in the deck, not just the maybe pile. Diabolic Intent should replace Diabolic Tutor. Sorin, Solemn Visitor is better here by far for his lifelink your team +1 than your 2 current Sorins combined.

Now creatures... and I'd up your creature count to at least 33. Legion Loyalist, Rakish Heir, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Mirror Entity, Dusk Legion Zealot and consider more flyers like Falkenrath Aristocrat and Voldaren Pariah  Flip.

Anyways, I hope this helps and feel free to check out my list for ideas. Edgar's Dega Vampires. Upvotes on any of my lists is appreciated.
