Celsha why would I need Stensia Masquerade if I've already have Stromkirk Captain ?? Just seems kinda redundant to me.. maybe for consistencies sake I guess almost everything else I like, I don't get the point of using blasphemous act unless I guess for a board wipe? My only problem is I wouldn't know what to replace with what. Since InflateTheToad practically built the whole deck

Stensia Masquerade possibily? First strike is always valuable, plus it can pump the vampires. Then again the 3 CMC slows the deck down.

I think you need more discard outlets and removal. Lightning Axe provides both.

Stensia Masquerade has to be in this deck. First strike is awesome, since most of your creatures have more attack than toughness. It also would go really well with Distemper of the Blood and Bloodmad Vampire.

You need to think about the role of black cards in this deck. Voldaren Pariah  Flip ends the game quickly, but will only be played after turn 5 or 6. At this point, you want to be close to winning anyways. Indulgent Aristocrat can buff your team, but at the cost of a creature, which is too much imo. The lifelink is negligible on a 1/1. Stromkirk Condemned is a great card, but double black makes it really a pain to cast on curve on a budget manabase. That leaves mainly Asylum Visitor for card draw and Heir of Falkenrath  Flip for evasion and a discard outlet. Both can be found in red as well. So i think you can go either mono-red hyperagressive, doing 10 damage by turn 3. Or go for a little more value-oriented approach including black finishers.

Route 1 - Mono-R Aggro:

Just 20 mountains, 4 Insolent Neonate, 4 Incorrigible Youths, 4 Tormenting Voice, some Avacyn's Judgment and maybe some Voldaren Duelist.

Route 2 - R/B Midrange:

3-4 Macabre Waltz, 3-4 Bloodhall Priest, maybe Olivia, Mobilized for War.

Thanks! Yeah I'll try out two copies of her instead of Stensia Masquerade when I get my hands on her!

Yea, madness is like flash. Discard a card at anytime and play anything at anytime (I.E. Stromkirk Condemned, Key to the City, Heir of Falkenrath  Flip, to name a few. Although in this specific case, Stensia Masquerade is only useful on the offensive

When you say, "trick your opponent" are you saying that you wait for them to declare blockers before you cast Stensia Masquerade? Because I'm pretty sure you have to play enchantments during a main phase, so they won't really be tricked as they'll see the buff coming.

I'd also look at Stensia Masquerade if you aren't main boarding Drana, Liberator of Malakir
