I love and have been running Vampires for a while:lagotripha's comment is a great way to go, build with those ideas in mind and you've got a fantastic deck to pilot. There are some cards and strategies I'd on to it, to make for different playstyles.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is great, and you can see him do work in many versions of Jund that run him in the sideboard and mainboard. He's just fantastic as he is, but you can certainly build more around him. Stromkirk Noble and Vampire Lacerator are good 1-drops, if you want to go for a wider strategy. Lacerator can be a bit rough sometimes, and is kinda a preference/build choice. Asylum Visitor 's a strong hitter with card draw, and acts a sorta pseudo- Dark Confidant that fits in the tribe. Drana, Liberator of Malakir is also a powerful flying 3 drop, and the built-in first strike and evasion are incredibly useful.

A great utility piece to consider, as well, is Kolaghan's Command . So much choice on that one, it lends itself to quite a variety of situations.

If humans is big in your meta game, Stromkirk Noble is your best friend!! I once won a game of vintage cube because of that guy! Realistically though, I do have a few ideas...

Path to Exile is great, but feels a little clunky in a deck. Splashing for the sideboard is reasonable, but I feel like if that's your only maindeck you may just be better off with Fatal Push in the main. Removing from the main also allows you to put back in 1 or 2 Vampire Nocturnus , but it is not needed.

I agree with adding in another Stromkirk Captain . Anthem effects are important for tribal synergies and Stromkirk Captain is relatively efficient.

Also agree with above that adding Inquisition of Kozilek . A 3/2 split with Thoughtseize (either way works) I think would be great. Inquisition hits like 90% of the format anyway... works most of the time.

Might be too many lords, 4 Captivating and 4 Stromkirk seems like overkill. I'm not a fan of Bloodline Keeper due to him being slow and Indulgent, I feel should probably be lower. More utility creatures are a good idea. If you want tempo then things like Viscera Seer , Bloodghast , Gatekeeper of Malakir , Olivia Voldaren and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet are all great. Worth mentioning: Stromkirk Noble is a crazy good 1-drop, despite not being black. I also feel like 4 Fatal Push is obligatory here. Kinda prefer Asylum Visitor over Zealots because I like hitting hard.

Land recommendations: Go big on fetches and run 1-2 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . The Ghast and Nocturnus synergy is unreal. Could probably cut a Cavern or 2, perhaps a mutavault. 8 feches is plenty but if you can go to 9 or 10 do so.

Good luck, have a nice drink tonight if you know what I mean.

Hey, this is a good start, but consider being even more aggressive with Vamps and eminence?

One drop Vamps are pretty important to the strategy with eminence, but the manabase here can't support them very well. Consider more lands that can ETB untapped turn one especially to make black mana for Vamps?

Consider more one drop Vamps?

Consider more two drop Vamps?

Other cards to consider:

If you like some of these suggestions then I can help you to make cuts.

Good luck with your deck.

Alright, I finished a few decks over the last couple hours or so.

Humans: $15 Humans (Elite Inquisitors are for some spicy Vampire/Werewolf/Zombie hate)

Vampires: $15 Madness Vampires (Stromkirk Noble in place of Vampire Lacerator/Indulgent Aristocrat can be cool against the humans deck)

Here's a bonus Kor equipment deck I made for fun a while ago but never posted on tappedout: $15 Kor Equipment

I tried to make a decent zombies deck that fit within the budget but it's such a popular tribe that all the semi-good cards are over $1 each, which made it nigh impossible to make something good. If you're fine with pauper decks though, here's a zombie deck I made in that format: Suicide is occasionally the answer. It's like 10 bucks without the sideboard and can hold up pretty well against other non-competitive modern decks (and is really fun in multiplayer with Shepherd of Rot heheh).

If you don't mind using non-pauper legal cards, I suggest you make these edits:

The last two add $8ish to the price tag but with them the deck becomes more competitive and easier to play. That said, managing your life total is pretty fun if you enjoy a challenge, and chaining together Maggot Carriers with Ghoulcaller's Chant to hit the opponent for the last few points of damage is pretty satisfying. Do what you want with it.

SamsWrath on Papa Markov (Budget)

The most brutal way to build a Markov deck is to abuse his Eminence ability by playing as many low-cmc Vampires as possible. If you couple that with mana rocks and some Ramp you can drop a handful of 1cmc Vampires each turn and get free triggers for even more Vampires from Markov! This will also allow you to cut your lands down to around 30.

Here are some low-cmc Vampires to consider:


Mana Rocks:

You can also try throwing in these HUGE buff effects for your Vampires:

My suggestions for cuts are plentiful. However, Kresh the Bloodbraided comes to mind immediately. Reyhan, Last of the Abzan would be good, Ob Nixilis, the Fallen is great, Rockslide Elemental is similar to Kresh, Taurean Mauler is another Managorger, and Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Malakir Cullblade, with even more similarities to Kresh, may fit well with your flavor. Curse of Stalked Prey could help, alongside Curse of Predation, some mana rocks would do you good, Apocalypse Hydra, and many other hydras would be decent finishers, Kalonian Hydra takes the cake though. Armorcraft Judge is nice, along with Inspiring Call, Pelt Collector and Experiment One, Champion of Lambholt, maybe Heroes' Bane, Ravenous Slime, Rubblebelt Raiders, Deus of Calamity, Scute Mob, Sporeback Troll, Tuskguard Captain, Vinelasher Kudzu, Soul's Majesty, Falkenrath Exterminator, and Stromkirk Noble?

So that's a few suggestions. Want me to propose cuts as well?
