MrXilas, Stensia Masquerade I feel would also be great in this deck, I just wasnt able to find one until now.

Stensia Masquerade gives a useful keyword and acts as another for your vampires to grow and get out of hand. Akroma's Memorial can be game-ending when your entire team gets Flying and Trample. Havengul Vampire can be very strong since all you need to do is play him and wait.Vault of the Archangel and Basilisk Collar both grant the powerful Deathtouch/Lifelink combo and Basilisk Collar is also extremely strong with Olivia Voldaren.

  1. I would play all four tutors in this deck: Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Diabolic Intent and Enlightened Tutor. Enlightened Tutor gets a lot better with the addition of Necropotence and Shared Animosity.

  2. I am not playing Stensia Masquerade but am playing Rakish Heir. My creature count is 33 (30 vampires). My deck wants one and two mana vampires. I cut Stromkirk Noble but have been trying to find a way to get it back into the deck. I am playing Viscera Seer, Pulse Tracker, and Vicious Conquistador.

  3. I am playing Sorin, Solemn Visitor for the life gain and his ultimate is achievable.

  4. I would add all seven of the cards you have listed. Reconnaissance is not in my deck but it seems to get rave reviews. I hate to recommend cuts as I don't know what is working for you. I do not think Last_Laugh, Josh Estrella or me are playing Bloodchief Ascension, Intangible Virtue, Stensia Masquerade, Hour of Revelation, or Blood Tribute.

Thank you guys again for the feedback Josh_Estrella,Last_Laugh,Lil_Kalki and Frank_Glascock! I didn't know Panharmonicon worked like that, I was told otherwise by some people at my card shop so I guess that'll be an easy cut. Going with what you said guys have said so far and to respond to Frank_Glascock-

  1. Cools, I'll get a Necropotence. I had Herald’s Horn as a maybe because I didn't know if it'd be better than Urza's Incubator but I see what you mean with the card draw, so I'll get one of those and make that swap. I have a Dark Prophecy at home, so I can get that sent to me with my other cards. Athreos, God of Passage is a cool card, I didn't know about that. I want to try him out sometime. What should I cut to put my Skullclamp back in? I did want to keep it, but I wasn't too sure on what to take out.

  2. I need a Shared Animosity. Purphoros, God of the Forge is like a really cool upgraded version of Impact Tremors that I didn't know about, I'll have to get him too. I wanted to try to use Impact Tremors somehow, but Purphoros, God of the Forge is way better. Also, I wasn't too much of a fan of Bloodlord of Vaasgoth either, so I could cut him for something. I wasn't sure about Anowon, the Ruin Sage. Should I have a Sorin, Solemn Visitor in place of one of the other two I am currently using? Also, I thought that Stensia Masquerade would be a better alternative to Rakish Heir. Same mana cost but it's an enchantment instead of a creature, and it can give first strike. I could be wrong though, I know we need to be having a lot of vampires. What do you think about the low cost vampires I have so far? Lil_Kalki mentioned cutting Stromkirk Noble, and you said something about Vicious Conquistador. I was going to put Pulse Tracker in but I saw Vicious Conquistador was essentially the same but it's a 1/2 instead. Maybe my Sanctum Seeker is already doing the same job but a bit better...

  3. Should I exchange the two tutors I have for the ones you mentioned, or find a way to squeeze in two more?

  4. I could see Boros Charm being good, I'll try to get one as well. You'll have to let us know how Dark Prophecy goes, I have one back in the states I can have sent to me.

  5. Ok so far this is what I'm at so far...

ADD- Necropotence,Shared Animosity,Skullclamp,Purphoros, God of the Forge. As I asked before, add Enlightened Tutor and Diabolic Intent? or swap them? Also add Reconnaissance.

CUT- Panharmonicon for sure, Anowon, the Ruin Sage?,Vicious Conquistador?, maybe Stromkirk Noble or Viscera Seer

SWAP- One of my Sorins for Sorin, Solemn Visitor?, Urza's Incubator for Herald’s Horn. and then find a way for a Boros Charm to go in.

I think that you should use Vampire Nocturnus and Stensia Masquerade for more vampire buffs all around.

Hi,

my strategy for making your deck faster is:

  1. putting in more cheap vampires as this synergises with your commander more: Insolent Neonate, Kheru Mind-Eater, Guul Draz Assassin, Viscera Seer, Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Bairn, Vampire Aristocrat, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Malakir Cullblade. This way you can swarm the board early while en passant generating tokens, then attack with Edgar Markov on turn 6.

  2. putting in some ultra aggressive cards. Alongside tokens Mercadia's Downfall can be devastating, for example. Another one would be Mirror Entity. Note that this one is also a vampire and that the +1/+1-counters stay on the creatures when you change their base power and toughness.

  3. cutting some of the more expenise and non-aggressive cards: Campaign of Vengeance, Stensia Masquerade and maybe you should reduce your lifegain/-loss subtheme if you want to go the faster route. Also Vanquisher's Banner is cool tech, but at 5 mana it may be too expensive

By the way: a card that can go absolutely crazy in token tribal decks is Mana Echoes. Unfortunately it is no budget card.

bushido_man96 mentioned some mass removals. Their asymetrical effect is nice but they also cost a lot of mana. Some other really good asymmetrical mass removals for token decks would be Austere Command, Fell the Mighty, Retribution of the Meek and Dusk.

That's all for now. Let me know what you think of my faster game plan.

A couple of suggestions with the goals you have in mind. Granted, they all aren't immediately obtainable.

Immediate vampires, however there are many other cards which create tokens to feed your self sacrificing strats,

eg. Zulaport Cutthroat
