Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord Discussion

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.

Write a longer description. A big long description helps other people who want to give advice (like me) see your reasoning for certain card choices or even for the archetype. It also makes you think out your combos and your reasoning for each card. If you look at my decks, none of them have a description shorter than about a paragraph.
I think the midrange aspect of this deck could be dropped, and you could turn this into a full combo deck. If you do that, add Heliod, Sun-Crowned (you should do that anyway, he's a beast), probably a few Ajani's Pridemate s, the rest of the Healer's Hawk s, and some other things for lifegain. Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord isn't a bad idea at all either.
Keeping it as it is, Hushbringer belongs in the sideboard, make your curve bigger (if you're playing midrange, you don't want to kill yourself with things like Cry of the Carnarium or Shatter the Sky , and cut... Pretty much all your planeswalkers (except maybe Kaya, Orzhov Usurper ).

Skyler1776: Thanks for your comment! :)
Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord was in the deck from the beginning. Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Gideon Blackblade are a little bit to expansive ($$) for my budget, but I considered them before I completed deck and in my opinion, Sorin better suits the assumptions (lifelink for my creatures (in my turn), -X resurrection from graveyard, +2 damage with lifelink == another counter for creatures. My main assumption is gaining life (from lifelink, Soulmender ) to trigger Epicure of Blood , which cooperates perfectly with Ill-Gotten Inheritance and Revenge of Ravens -> Ajani, Strength of the Pride doesn't work well enough with this set. Btw sometimes I don't even have to attack, to win the game. Other creatures in my opinion are perfectly compatible with themselves.
Gideon's Company is very good card, but I decided to change it for Bloodthirsty Aerialist . It has flying, which is good way to deal damage, when opponent doesn't have any flying creatures / or to defend flying attackers.
Now I'm trying to change some lands to speed up an avalanche of 'counters'/'triggers'. ;)

Cards like Overcome are awesome in limited environments, but in constructed formats they’re usually incredibly lackluster. In long games, against control and other midrange decks, you’re going to top deck it and wish it was anything else because your board is 1 maybe 2 creatures. Sure- it WILL definitely win you the game, more than once. But it’s what I consider a “win-more” card. It’s sweet when you’re doing what you want the deck to do (make tokens) but when you’re on your back foot and need to recuperate from a Supreme Verdict or an Anger of the Gods or whatever. Not necessarily a board wipe, but lots of decks like to trade 1-1 and can block your tokens all day.

Appreciate the suggestions. I already own the Marsh Flats, so the plan would be to replace Terramorphic Expanse and Arcane Sanctum with Temple of Silence and some other mana generators.
I feel like I've got to add 1 or 2 more Luminarch Ascension because having only 2 has left me without it at all in some games.
Thanks for the suggestions!

dusterGGG I like Pitiless Pontiff because it offers deathtouch alongside functional indestructibility, but you may be right, in my playtests lack of that one mana when I have putted something like Teysa Karlov or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord on turn 4 often meant that I couldn't use Pontiff when I really would like too, and since Cartel Aristocrat can also work almost infinitely with Cruel Celebrant I guess it's a better one here, since I already have Orzhov Enforcer to take down big creatures. I will probably get it with my next order on cardkingdom and than I'll update this deck, thanks. As of Yahenni, Undying Partisan , I don't really need attackers in this deck since I can either overflow opponent with spirits or just drain him with Cruel Celebrant and I prefer 2 CMC over 3. So I guess Cartel Aristocrat it is.

Hello guys! I've played MtG now for a while casually and mostly with my friends and a few time at my local card store in official Mtg event. I was able to win a few rounds but of course lost all the games (BO3). Winning those few rounds gave me massive motivation boost to became a better Mtg player, now i am writing this thread to ask help from more experienced players:
Instant: 2x Mortify
Sorcery: 1x Kaya's Wrath
I would love to get some improvement ideas and cards for my main deck. I am ready to invest some money (but not too much since i am a poor student).
All the help is greatly appreciated! Thank you all so much!
ps. Please be kind this is my first post. :)
