Thief of Blood. It’s a black vampire, but it has the effect you described

Depends on what you're looking to hate on with the sideboard, some good general recommendations however might be cards like Thief of Blood, Sadistic Sacrament, Torpor Orb, or Leyline of the Void as cards that can hate on common archetypes.

If we knew what the meta you were up against consisted of, I'm sure there are people much more knowledgeable than myself who could help you.

Kogarashi on Land creatures with Blood Moon?

In short, as long as Arixmethes, Slumbering Isle has a slumber counter on it, Blood Moon will cause it to be a mountain with no other abilities (and however many slumber counters on it).

This is due to the layers system. Blood Moon's effect depends on whether or not Arixmethes is a land, but Arixmethes doesn't depend on Blood Moon's effect, so Arixmethes's "this is a land" ability applies first. Then Blood Moon turns it into a mountain. If you're able to remove the slumber counters some other way (Vampire Hexmage or Thief of Blood, probably), then Arixmethes will stop being a land, and thus stop being affected by Blood Moon

Hello! You should definitely add Stromkirk Captain. This is a tribal deck so Metallic Mimic or Adaptive Automaton would be a nice addition too. Vampire Hexmage and Thief of Blood are your anti-Planeswalker tools. I would also add Markov Blademaster and Falkenrath Marauders.

Fyi your landbase needs fixing. You cannot have land types outside your colors i.e. no mountains. The off color fetch is fine.

Now onto the suggestion part,Hex Parasite, Vampire Hexmage, Thief of Blood are all good removing counters from things like your Dark Depths and superfriends decks.

usaDiabetic I've updated the description. 30-35 lands is as trim as it can go, haha!

It is true that once there are more than 3 opponents this kind of strategy faces greater opposition. I've played most often with 1-4 opponents but 4, 5, or more opponents would be trouble!

To be fair to the deck, the card draw of Herald's Horn, Skullclamp, The Immortal Sun, Vanquisher's Banner, Asylum Visitor, Champion of Dusk, Dusk Legion Zealot, Forerunner of the Legion, Twilight Prophet, Dark Prophecy, Necropotence, Phyrexian Arena and reanimation of Victimize, Patriarch's Bidding, Living Death, Bloodline Necromancer help sustain after board wipes.

Enough creatures have excellent effects as well to benefit from being knocked out including Kheru Bloodsucker, Paladin of Atonement, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Kalastria Highborn, Pawn of Ulamog, Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Bloodghast, Oathsworn Vampire, Viscera Seer, Blood Artist, and Falkenrath Noble.

And for disruption/removal there's New Blood, The Immortal Sun, Voldaren Pariah  Flip, Vampire Hexmage, Thief of Blood, Patron of the Vein, Captivating Vampire, Bloodhusk Ritualist, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Guul Draz Assassin, and Bishop of Binding.

I'm open to suggestion though. Any other removal options you might recommend?

you can copy dark depths with thespian stage and get merit lage for free with out paying into it because the copy does not get the counters also if someone is able to deal with merit you still have the dark depths to bring him back still and if you have Thief of Blood in there you can get the counters removed for the six drop instead of paying 30 mana to hard cast it. also this deck needs Scapeshift it is a must and was just reprinted so you can get a copy for like 11 bucks i would get it before the reprint starts to go up in price. nice deck.
