are you really having trouble "getting" creatures out? or do you mean you have trouble "keeping" creatures out because your opponent has removal?

definitely take out Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx . its really just for mono colored decks. also, turn 8 is horrifically slow in modern.

get rid of the enchantments. in modern, 5 mana is too expensive for a card that doesn't have some sort of immediate impact on the game state.

Hero's Downfall is inefficient. 3 mana is generally too much mana for a removal spell. Fatal Push and Path to Exile are really good removal spells.

Chalice of Life  Flip is also inefficient given how little reliable lifegain you have.

Souls of the Faultless should be taken out since its not a vampire.

Vampire Nocturnus would be better than Bloodline Keeper  Flip or Sanctum Seeker in the 4-drop slot.

Forerunner of the Legion is painfully slow in modern, and Vampire Nighthawk would be way better as a 3-drop.

Vampire Nighthawk is a great card for getting in damage as well as taking lives.

Gatekeeper of Malakir is a fantastic card in that it kills a threat and acts as a body.

Probably also get the full playset of Vampire Cutthroat , and Souls of the Faultless .

For what i’d remove:

  • drop all your enchantments, they’re too high a cmc to be useful.

  • drop Fumigate... you’re a creature based deck, if you’re having to board wipe you’re in a whole lot of trouble.

  • drop Call the Gatewatch, it’s kindof clumsy and you’re not likely to have 6 lands to cast your planeswalkers until turn 8 anyway, which is quite late. You have alright odds by this stage of having already drawn on naturally.

  • personally i’d also drop the planeswalkers, though i understand if you want to keep em. If you do ditch them (and the cards above), you’ll be able to go to 22 lands i reckon

Isochron Scepter seems out of place because you only have seven cards it works with. I think Worn Powerstone is too slow, instead I would run some talismans (Talisman of Progress). I would only keep Torpor Orb if you decide to make this deck more control heavy. An Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre to stop mill seems good in place of Commit. I would try to get nonbasic lands so you don't end up mana screwed. Shocks and fetches are ideal but if you don't want to spend that much, life-gain taplands and others should suffice.

Cards I like for this deck:

Austere Command, Vindicate, Killing Wave, Toxic Deluge, Karlov of the Ghost Council, Vona, Butcher of Magan, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Souls of the Faultless, Drogskol Reaver, Tainted Sigil, Well of Lost Dreams, Venser's Journal, Polluted Bonds, Moat, Sphere of Safety, Bojuka Bog, Glacial Chasm

The deck looks good though, hope it really polishes up!

Not sure if Cliffhaven Vampire offers as much as you might hope, since the rules state: "The ability triggers just once for each life-gaining event, no matter how much life is gained." While you do need card draw, I'm fairly sure Night's Whisper or Phyrexian Arena are a better fit than Dawn of Hope, if you really want additional enchantments to help Blood-Cursed Knight I'd suggest Pillory of the Sleepless.

If the object is to stay alive while you build the combo then Souls of the Faultless might be of help, certainly it's on them. You also might be able to use Soul Spike (don't cast it use the exile clause) and Athreos, God of Passage. On the flip side if you wanted an alternative win condition then Divinity of Pride, Chalice of Life  Flip or even Lone Rider  Flip might have a place.

Hope this helps, good luck brewing your deck.

cool deck idea, some suggestions: maybe take out Angelic Gift? it doesn't synergize with the lifegain theme, and maybe add Bloodbond Vampire ? although it competes for the 4 drop slot. I also would recommend looking at Survival Cache, Consuming Vapors as they can trigger pridemate multiple times. lastly, maybe Souls of the Faultless ? idk just some ideas.

This reminds me of one of the first decks I ever built, based off an old precon from the original Ravnica era. It's since been updated with some new cards, but it still tries to win by beating down with pumped up fliers while Souls of the Faultless and High Priest of Penance hold down the ground. Here it is if you'd like to look at it for any ideas. It's mostly me trying to abuse Edge of the Divinity to be honest, and isn't super competitive, but good enough for kitchen table magic with newer players.
