Any time, seshiro_of_the_orochi!

Not a lot about Runo seems Red- even his flavor text (see Stromkirk Condemned ) seems forward-thinking and controlled. That’s very not red.

So this leaves us with... an Esper vampire??

Stromkirk Condemned is a good card in a deck where you discard your cards maybe a rakdos theme with hellbent and also madness. But i guess in your deck is not that needed, there is Thirsting Bloodlord for some counters.

hey again Unha110w3d ;)

oh yeah, I completely forgot Yahenni is legal in Pioneer - and that you can play him outside of EDH where he firmly lives for me haha :D

I don´t like these one-shot deaththouch effects too much, and I do have 4x Gifted Aetherborn in there for that. but it´s a neat idea nontheless, would make Drana + team attacks pretty devastating regardless of who blocks!

I did think about putting down Stromkirk Condemned but I´m not so sure b/c of the "discard-to-activate" ability...

Well let's see, if you want some good vampires I've found that Markov Dreadknight and Stromkirk Condemned are amazing, especially the latter because it fits your theme. Vampire Hounds can swing for big damage consistently, and offers instant speed discard. Skyshroud Vampire is also an evasive version of Vampire Hounds . Finally, and I'm honestly surprised you don't have her in here, Olivia, Mobilized for War is stunningly good because discard, counters for marchesa, and non-vampires you're running become vampires.

Several of the cards you mentioned I already have, but you've also given me several good suggestions.

Indulgent Aristocrat takes away some of my creatures and mana for (in my opinion) too little benefit. Yes having a +1/+1 counter on each of my creatures is nice, but as I said to Kjartan, this deck doesn't field many vampires at once, and I have several better options for combat than Indulgent Aristocrat .

Vampire Cutthroat is a weak option as well. It can provide some hits later game, but I prefer my 1/2s better.

Lashwrithe is too heavy in mana cost for the gain it gives, but I may have to look into Blade of the Bloodchief .

Guul Draz Vampire is too situational, Shadow Alley Denizen is too low-impact, and Pulse Tracker is out-classed by Vicious Conquistador . Stromkirk Condemned is good, I've added three of him to the decklist.

Gonti's Machinations is a possibility, but it's situational as well. Bump in the Night is too low-impact; it just hits the enemy, it doesn't further my board position.

Several of the spells you mention in the "cheap effective spells" list would make a great sideboard, which I'm afraid I'll have to get to later.
