What if you templated it like Archangel of Tithes , where your opponents only have to pay the life if he's untapped? That means you're at least having to choose between offense and defense. It also rewards you for building around him by including things to give him vigilance, or untappers, or the like. Perhaps you could include a buff when he attacks too, although I'd definitely up the mana cost to at least six if you choose to do that.
Also, creature type Sylvanesti? No. I get that that's supposed to be a bloodline (if I'm interpreting it right), but that's not a creature type. Reserve that kind of thing for flavor text, where you can do more with it anyway.
Also, consider giving him a job - creature types are usually templated as (Kind of creature)(Role that creature plays), like for example on Soulfire Grand Master , it's a human and a monk. The most common pairings with "Vampire" are Knight (23/227) and Soldier (21/227), followed not too far behind by Warrior (17) then Shaman (16) then Cleric (14), with Wizard chilling at a surprisingly low 10/227. That said, I was surprised to see how many vampires actually don't have jobs - 87 of 227 printed Vampires are unemployed. Apparently, vampires are leeches on society as well as... you know. People.

I would also recommend Dig Through Time if you have it. It’s another great way to cast a huge spell without tapping out your mana.
Illusionist's Bracers doubles up your Vial-Smasher triggers, making him really dangerous. And Sunbird's Invocation can find you a second spell to cascade into, which will trigger Vial Smasher.. again.

Thank you for your replies!
@luther Great suggestion with Shu Yun! To be honest, he was my first choice before the partners, but another guy in my playgroul was using him, and I wanted to use someone different. Soulfire Grand Master sounds like the perfect choice to help me keep my spells, however I am a little hesitant on the cost of his ability.
@Funkydiscogod Those are some great suggestions for card draw. The problem is that most of the guys in my group run Consecrated Sphinx and that plus Plagiarize, Notion Thief, or Psychic Possession tends to lead to disaster. Thanks though!

If you want monk themed Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest is a good choice that is somewhat like a mix of ishai and bruse. Soulfire Grand Master is a must to keep casting your spells repeatedly. Monastery Mentor for chump blockers. Spellskite and Standard Bearer to force bad plays. Aegis of Honor for another redirect. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight to lower opponent's damage (also super great with double strike)

I think I like everything but Spectral Procession and intangible virtue in this list. While I can see what you're going for with them, I'd probably remove either all of one or some combination of both to add in 4 Soulfire Grand Master

This is my newest deck. I hate running 18 lands and would like to add Soulfire Grand Master.

If I add that card, how many and what do I drop?
