Se7enfoot Thanks for the upvote! I was considering Smallpox but it seems a little risky for my liking.

Grubbernaut Good call on the Supernatural Stamina, it's perfect! I've been working on this deck for a while, so I'm always looking to improve. Thrull Parasite may not seem like much, but it definitely helps me in pinging multiple opponents and gaining me a life advantage early game. My style is to kind of create targets that annoy my opponents on the board, and the meta I play in is very casual kitchen table game play. As for Geth's Verdict, it's a good card, but it only targets one opponent which is not the direction of the deck.

What's Thrull Parasite for? Also; the regenerate from Unnatural Endurance won't re-trigger enters-the-battlefield effects, like for Gray Merchant of Asphodel. Supernatural Stamina is a strict upgrade, here.

Also consider Geth's Verdict.

Cheers

ClockworkSwordfish on Orzhov life tithe

You're wise to be running cards that let you gain a bit of life multiple times rather than a big amount all at once, since of course Karlov triggers every time you gain life, no matter how much. In that vein, you might also appreciate some more cards with Tithe (Thrull Parasite gives you a potential use for all that life you're gaining, and Tithe Drinker comes with another way to gain life.) There's also Archangel of Thune, who presents a win condition that goes hand-in-hand with what you'll be doing anyway. I also can't resist suggesting Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant in any sort of white EDH deck!

Nether Traitor and the drain effects are a neat combo, but you don't actually have any repeatable sac outlets in your deck, which is what you need to make that combo work. Viscera Seer does that job nicely, and you can also play Nantuko Husk as a backup sac outlet. I'd replace all the Vampire Cutthroats and a couple Thrull Parasite or a Grave Pact and a Dark Prophecy with them. They'll add a lot more explosiveness to your deck for sure.

Btw, your deck fits in an archetype called Aristocrats. It's a hub you can add, and it would sum your deck up a lot more nicely than Aggro/Burn/Combo/Control (not that it really matters) ;)

You're off to a decent start, I'd say. Your curve looks good, though you're mana base is a bit weak at the moment (you should be running about 40 land for consistency). Some commentary as I took notes:

Heliod, God of the Sun doesn't seem to fit with the overall theme of the deck. You'd be better off with a card that will give you lifelink creatures or something, to help offset the life-loss from your various effects. Whip of Erebos would be my pick for this deck.

Blood Tribute is going to want more vampires, which are kind of slim in your deck at the moment.

Brainspoil is...poor removal. I would remove it. Killing Wave, on the other hand, is a good choice for sweep, and Remorseless Punishment and Temporal Extortion are nice. I like Near-Death Experience as an alternate win-con, but Path of Bravery is going to hamper that, especially since you don't appear to have super-consistent lifegain.

You have...two? infect cards. I would remove them since infect is really an alternate win-con that you aren't geared toward. Diseased Vermin might make for an alternate rat if you must have a rat, especially if you can give it evasion somehow, and it works with lifelink. It's not a strong pick for the deck, though.

Knight-Captain of Eos wants more soldiers. There are quite a few vampire soldiers, and some of them would work well in this deck. Vicious Conquistador is one that works with your theme.

Seekers' Squire doesn't really seem to fit any of your themes.

Wall of Shards short-circuits your life-drain by giving increasingly large amounts of life to opponents. You don't need it. I would also skip the Hyena Umbra and Hatred.

As for further suggestions, things with Extort are good. There's always the Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond combo, which can also use Vizkopa Guildmage in place of Sanguine Bond.

Other suggestions:

Ones that work somewhat with the life drain: Defiant Bloodlord, Retreat to Hagra, Thrull Parasite, Bontu's Monument, Kambal, Consul of Allocation, Underworld Coinsmith (this would be a reason to keep Heliod, actually), Zulaport Cutthroat, and maybe Vizkopa Confessor

Others that pay life or give you life somehow: Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Chainer, Dementia Master, Cruel Sadist, Phyrexian Reclamation, Vona, Butcher of Magan, and Elenda, the Dusk Rose (for working with your creatures dying).

All of this, of course, is subject to what you're willing to buy, and you don't have to listen to anything I say. It's your deck, after all.
