Sword-Point Diplomacy is at it's best in a deck like this. Gonti's Machinations is also great burn until rotation. I'm not sure what replaces Soul-Scar Mage but Risk Factor is gonna be perfect for this deck.

Don't listen to these guys. Sword-Point Diplomacy is a fantastic card. It is the best black draw and burn at the same time. It fits in this deck perfectly. I have used it many times. Making a opponent with 12 life on turn 3(very possible) have to make this choice is fun to watch. FOlks that tell you letting your opponent choose is bad are wrong in this instance. It's also very very useful for filtering lands. I have been saved repeatedly from flooding by casting this and drawing 3 lands. Drawing a land on turn 4-6 would kill this deck. Keep it in AND add the new Browbeat from guilds.

I see your point about the Goblin and Opt. I love Risk Factor good call, it's brother Sword-Point Diplomacy has served me well.

They just spoiled a really good replacement for Sword-Point Diplomacy...Risk Factor

Ok reading it over again its not as good, its 4 life to prevent 3 cards instead of 9. But there is the element of risk to it, which makes it better.

Card link since they haven't updated TappedOut with the card yet: http://mythicspoiler.com/grn/cards/riskfactor.html

Nice foil Shock :)

Adding on to Limo's post, Dismissive Pyromancer would probably be better here. Sadly, it can't target players with its sac removal, but it will filter your draws much better than Sword-Point Diplomacy.

I love your choice of creature, very fast and effective. I would advice maybe a better draw engine then Sword-Point Diplomacy. I know it goes with the theme, but if you need to draw answer, your opponent will put a stop to it.

I think shoehorning red into this deck is too much work. Sword-Point Diplomacy is better for you then Tormenting voice. Squee is not worth the effort. Doomed Dissenter can do the job well. This deck is screaming for Demon of Catastrophes to finish, and Isareth can bring him back for 4. Midnight Reaper, a new card is also perfect for this.

I think B/W lifegain vampires is a good deck and fun to play. I would play it as is and find which of the creatures you like best, and keep adding the ones you like while removing ones that don't work out. I would concentrate on lifegain and flying. Sadistic Skymarcher is a great card in my deck. Removal is very importnat cause most vamps are not very beefy. I would try Walk the Plank in stead of Impale and Recover instead of Waltz. Life gain and card draw can really help out new players buy time while you learn your deck. Lots of folks will tell you it's wrong, but Sword-Point Diplomacy is a great card for card draw in black.
