AmAuron on Death dealer, life stealer

@Dave-writer90 If you had some way of tutor Sorin Markov, I would suggest a cute interaction with Sorin's Vengeance, it hits the field 1 mana after Sorin itself.

After a little analysis, one question comes to mind, isn't Stromkirk Noble better than one of your one drops like Vampire Cutthroat? Because if you can drop it at first turn, it's a pain, since your opponent have to deal with it. That's my opinion :)

Best Regards

Stromkirk Noble is probably the most well rounded one drop. Smuggler's Copter isnt terribly expensive and really adds a ton to the deck. A cheap aerial threat that enables your madness cards. I would swap out the Keys for it. Ravenous Bloodseeker does give you an additional discard outlet if Liliana of the Veil is out of budget.

Saying your curve tops at three means youre relying on madness (having a discard outlet). While you want to be a madness deck, it can be a fatal flaw to lean on that. You still want independently good cards.

1-drop: Stromkirk Noble, Vampire Lacerator, Vicious Conquistador, as well as Falkenrath Gorger

2-drop: Blood Artist, Bloodghast, along with all the others?

Well more in terms of current modern meta. Like I kind of had the idea of following Jund's lead because it's an established strategy and I liked it because it really embraces the concept of Black as a color. A deck like yours plays so completely differently but it honestly is really nice in regard to synergies. I was of the mind at one point madness vamps should go all-in on the madness mechanic but now I'm of the mind that Bloodghast and Asylum Visitor are cards you'd be playing anyway, just run Condemned and Copters/Lilianas and play the rest of the deck normally.

Cards I'd want to run if I were doing straight tribal are some combination of Vampire Nocturnus, Stromkirk Captain and/or Captivating Vampire, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Gifted Aetherborn, Stromkirk Condemned, Bloodghast, Asylum Visitor, Stromkirk Noble, Vampire Lacerator or Falkenrath Gorger, probably Viscera Seer. I really like Olivia Voldaren and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet but I'm not seeing them in most current vampire lists just because they don't fit the strategy. I obviously want about 7-9 removal (Push, Bolt, Terminate, MAYBE K command), and I feel like Liliana and Copter help here, but as you can see, 60 cards would not have space to do everything I want with this idea.

There's a classic version of my deck that was very tempo-oriented on my profile, before the madness cards started coming out. I was very happy playing that for years but now it feels outdated.

This is actually not bad at all, though I'd say use a few more madness cards like Heir of Falkenrath, Asylum Visitor, Bloodghast and the like or maybe consider just using more generic red cards like Stromkirk Noble. Condemned is pretty damn good but I feel there might be a slightly better way to abuse him.

I feel like Bloodline Keeper is a bit too slow for Modern especially given your lack on 1-mana creatures. I don't think you need Rakish Heir or Stensia Masquerade either; you have plenty of pump as it is. Instead, try adding more low-costed creatures like more Stromkirk Noble, Vampire Lacerator, Vicious Conquistador, or Bloodghast.

Feast of Blood is awful. It really is. It's slow, it's situational, it's sorcery speed. Try instead Fatal Push and trade up for some fetch lands and add some Blood Crypts. Blackcleave Cliffs is also so much better than Dragonskull Summit if you can afford them. On the subject of removal, Gatekeeper of Malakir is insane. 3 mana for a chainer's edict with a 2/2 body and tribal support.

If you dropped a few of your heavier-costed cards you could look into a single copy of Olivia Voldaren, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Sanctum Seeker depending on how aggro you want to go. Other support lands to consider, largely depending on your budget are Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cavern of Souls, and Mutavault.

Neotrup is correct. I use Stromkirk Noble and assault strobe

Hi Snap157, Stromkirk Noble deals no damage on turn 1 (summoning sickness), 1 damage on turn 2, 2 damage on turn 3, Then 3 damage on turn 4, which is still a total of 6, while Goblin Guide (assuming it wasn't blocked or removed) would have dealt 8. The total damage it deals wouldn't catch up with Goblin Guide until turn 5, which is really slow, especially in Legacy.

I don't like Goblin Guide because it's a serious removal target and it helps opponents ramp (especially if they're playing Brainstorm or Ponder- and many decks are). However, I fail to see how Stromkirk Noble is a better option than Goblin Guide in terms of damage.
