Sorin's Vengeance Discussion

Lashwrithe is must in this deck. Thanks to living weapon it's kind of similar to 2 for 1 (you get creature and equipment in one card). Synergy with lifelink. Synergy with Mutilate (equiped creature survives). As game continues, it's more powerful and every creature becomes huge.
You should also try Rite of Consumption, in sideboard maybe. Korlash, Heir to Blackblade, Lashwrithe could be handled by chumpblocking. Some decks can prevent you from attacking, Rite of Consumption solves both.
Last suggestion is Profane Command instead of Sorin's Vengeance. Is 2 for 1 naturally, can kill small creature early game, similar to Lashwrithe is more powerful as game continues and with really big creatures fear mode could come pretty handy too.

I like it! I'd recommend running 4 fetch lands and 2 shock lands in your deck's colors if you're playing modern, it really makes a difference with having the right colors and having more consistent draws. I think the ones you would want are Bloodstained Mire and Blood Crypt. I don't think you need Feast of Blood or Tragic Slip, I'd try Fatal Push instead.
I don't think Blood Artist, Rakish Heir, or Stromkirk Noble are very good cards. Maybe the latter as a sideboard against 5-Color Humans but thats it. Instead, I would run 2x more Bloodghast, 4x Insolent Neonate, and then a planeswalker or two to shake things up a bit. I think the best planeswalker set you could run in this deck would be 2x Liliana of the Veil but if you don't want to break the bank Liliana Vess is also good and if you want to stick with the theme Sorin Markov is pretty decent. Sorin's Vengeance could also be fun to run as a one-of late-game win condition.

After a little analysis, one question comes to mind, isn't Stromkirk Noble better than one of your one drops like Vampire Cutthroat? Because if you can drop it at first turn, it's a pain, since your opponent have to deal with it. That's my opinion :)

You might appreciate Living Lore as backup for the Eternal. So long as Wildfire Eternal's cheated out even one big spell, the Lore should give you an easy way to cast it again for free. And hey, if the mana cost is high enough, putting Aqueous Form on it could just kill your opponent with sheer power on the spot.
P.S. You might as well run something like Sorin's Vengeance over Searing Flesh (or even Searing Wind.) Are you really planning on getting to seven or nine mana? Those spells aren't getting cast unless you can't get the Eternal through, in which case you're probably losing as it is. The fact that you can't hardcast the card honestly shouldn't make any difference.

PlattBonnay: You kind of have to see Sorin's Vengeance in a bigger picture. Yes, it is a very situational card. However, 10 life lost is nothing to scoff at. Especially considering that I will be playing this later in the game when people have lost a good amount of life. With a combo like Sanguine Bond + Sorin's Vengeance I could either hit someone with 20 life in the face, or I could deal 10 damage to 2 people. I've been on the fence about Fell the Mighty it could be good in some situations, but I'll probably just cut it.
Daedalus19876: I do like Aetherflux Reservoir and Beacon of Immortality (especially the beacon) and I know that Curse of Vitality isn't the strongest curse out there. But, it provides incentive for people to attack someone I see as a threat. I feel Curse of Vitality is a decent incentive. Whenever I attack I get 2 life, and when someone else attacks they get 2 life and I get 2 life.
Thanks for the suggestions guys!
