Talisman of Indulgence Discussion

I definitely cut:
Tenacious Dead (unless there's a combo I'm missing) Diregraf Colossus (I don't think there are enough zombies here) Captivating Crew (I tried this in a couple sac decks, but the 4 was just way too much.) Desecrated Tomb (bats seem low impact) Bone Splinters Murder Rend Flesh (You have a lot more single target removal spells than I generally like to run, though that's partially personal preference) Warstorm Surge/Impact Tremors (I might be missing a combo with these, though)
I'd probably cut:

Well i know my land base is low i was targeting to go near 36-38 lands, but i wasnt sure if the better option would be to add cards like Lotus Petal and Chrome Mox and maybe even Talisman of Indulgence and others or add basic land and maybe other good dual lands or utility lands i'm missing !
And I'll write the main goal tonight so you can better understand, while technically im trying to overun everyone with vampire that will drain each opponent as fast as possible with the possibility of the infinite combo Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood. Maybe some burn cards could help too?
Thanks again mate :)

Just a few things I'm noticing that need a little TLC. Card draw, board protection, and a few of your mana rocks.
Card Draw: Consider Greed, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena, Twilight Prophet, Skullclamp, Dark Prophecy, and/or Herald's Horn. I run all of these except Phyrexian Arena personally as the deck can put you in topdeck mode fast
Board Protection: Find room for Boros Charm and if it's in your price range Teferi's Protection. There's a few other options like Rootborn Defenses but it does nothing if you don't have a token to populate and only protects creatures. This deck folds to boardwipes pretty hard, protect that boardstate.
Rocks: I'd get rid of your 3 cost mana rocks (excluding Chromatic Lantern) for Talisman of Indulgence and use the other 2 slots for new cards.
I also 100% recommend running Reconnaissance. This card is amazing in any deck with attack triggers like Edgar but is even better with a go wide aggro plan like vampires.
It allows you to attack with everyone (yes, even that 0/2... why not?) then untap any of your attacking creatures to avoid bad blocks, untap after first strike damage but before normal combat damage (great with Drana and busted with Stromkirk Captain), and/or untap after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature still being an attacking creature until the end of combat step ends.
In short... attack with everyone, deal damage in most circumstances (besides avoiding bad blocks), and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block or abuse things like Captivating Vampire.

Night's Whisper $1.58 is too much, Sign in Blood is $0.18 (and can target opponents), Read the Bones is $0.16 but I don't like the CMC3. Night's Whisper/Sign in Blood definitely the best. Brainstorm $0.70 is even better imo. Ponder is $2.30 so not a great option. Brainstorm/Sign in Blood best for budget. Altar's Reap don't like it either. Costly Plunder also not quite right.
Telling Time also not bad in budget $0.23 lets you scry one to bottom and replaces itself.
Dimir Signet $1.80 is so much. Talisman of Dominance $1.29 is better because it's CMC2. Also, Talisman of Indulgence $0.72. Fellwar Stone $1.25 but less predictable. I think the Signets are great, but $1.80 is tough.
Baleful Strix is $2.95 but pretty amazing, if you free up enough cash for him.
Displacement Wave slows you down too much I feel, it can give you a Thraximundar alone. You control it with , but it's not going to work in 1 hour format, outside of the 1 hour feel it's pretty weak anyway.
Shrieking Affliction is going to guarantee that 3x players are attacking you, and it's too slow to win you the game.
Can up you mana ramp with stuff like Mycosynth Wellspring $0.15,
Murder always a nice multi-purpose removal in this format.
Far // Away $0.24 can also be handy.
You're mana source distribution is quite good 24% / 24% / 37% .
Desecration Demon might be fun, he's only CMC4.
I think your fairly balanced too, maybe a little too heavy on Sorcery, sub 1 for an instant or another creature or artifact.
I wouldn't go counterspell (maybeboard has so many), won't work in this format effectively.

Hey, looks good, Grixis goodstuff :)
Consider more lands? 32 lands is low for this deck. There's 18 cards that are six CMC or higher and an avg CMC of 4.3. As it's currently constructed looks like a 40 land deck, but I think you can get away with 38 lands. You can also consider deceasing the avg CMC meaning you need less lands. For 32 land deck however the avg. CMC needs to be no higher than 2.0 and you're a long ways from that number right now. Adding more mana rocks will also help, 8-10 low mana cost mana rocks or additional mana sources other than lands are helpful in any Commander deck.
Budget Grixis goodstuff to consider adding or upgrading current cards:
- Sol Ring
- Talisman of Dominance
- Talisman of Indulgence
- Fellwar Stone
- Coalition Relic
- Faithless Looting
- Mystic Remora
- Mystical Tutor
- Arcane Denial
- Swan Song
- Mystic Confluence
- Painful Truths
- Night's Whisper
- Fact or Fiction
- Chain of Vapor
- Chaos Warp
- Animate Dead
- Dance of the Dead

To start, I'll work on the manabase. Temple of the False God and Darksteel Ingot should be dropped immediately, with Talisman of Indulgence and Mind Stone as nearly direct upgrades in this specific deck. I would also drop Rogue's Passage, Dismal Backwater, a single Swamp, and Dimir Aqueduct for Darkwater Catacombs, River of Tears, Fetid Pools, and Underground River.
This should smothen your draws and manabase, giving you your colors faster and more efficiently, for a small cost. Other cards I would drop outside the manabase would be Grisly Spectacle, Balustrade Spy, In Bolas's Clutches, Hedonist's Trove, Psychic Strike, Fated Return, Keening Stone, Mindcrank, Trepanation Blade, Riddlekeeper, Dreadwaters, Increasing Confusion, Paranoid Delusions, Psychic Drain, and Traumatize, many of these 15 cards are simply overcosted or only affect one player, and don't do enough.
Cards I would run instead would be Animate Dead, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Phenax, God of Deception, Mesmeric Orb, Szadek, Lord of Secrets, Counterspell, Brainstorm, Ponder, Stroke of Genius, Prismatic Lens, Jace, Memory Adept, Dreamborn Muse, Thought Scour, Dimir Charm, Whispering Madness

+1! Love the deck, sadly you can't run cards with symbols outside of your commander's color identity, Deathrite Shaman, Avacyn's Pilgrim, Noble Hierarch, Elves of Deep Shadow, Talisman of Indulgence, and Talisman of Unity can't be run because of that, but you can slot in Arbor Elf, Wild Growth, Utopia Sprawl, Priest of Titania, Mind Stone, and Thought Vessel in their place!
