first of all I like the low mana curve of your deck. This is how Edgar Markov should be played!

Kambal is a great commander. I like how you are aiming for drawn out games in which players will cast themselves to death :) There are however, some changes I would like to propose:

  • change three or four of your lands for additional mana rocks or land tutoring; that will increase the speed of your deck somewhat. Good mana rocks would be Fellwar Stone, Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo. Pearl Medallion and Jet Medallion could also prove useful. In terms of land tutoring, I find Oreskos Explorer and Weathered Wayfarer to be exceptionally good, although the latter is not a cheap card.

  • you have several cards that force your opponents' creatures to enter the battlefield tapped. Royal Assassin would combine very well with that.

  • If you have Illness in the Ranks on the battlefield, Storm Herd becomes useless to you. I always try to prevent these kind of things in my own decks. I would recommend replacing one of these with something else.

  • I presume the main reason for adding Angel of Jubilation, is her secondary power. Her primary one seems a bit weird in this deck, considering almost 50% of your creatures are black.

  • I think your deck could become even more of a nuisance for your opponents if you would add some more extort effects. Ideas on this front: Treasury Thrull, Tithe Drinker, Syndic of Tithes and Pontiff of Blight.

I would recommend Switchint out the Tithe Drinker for a Gatekeeper of Malakir or maybe a Bloodghast

Josh_Estrella Thanks for the response! :D Also thank you, this is my first EDH deck I've ever made, and everyone here is being incredibly helpful :) I actually just got some of my cards in the mail today. I added in my Viscera Seer, Tainted Field, Tainted Peak, Gifted Aetherborn, Vault of the Archangel, Isolated Chapel, Bishop of Rebirth, Stromkirk Noble, and my Yahenni, Undying Partisan. I still need all 4 tutors (which is going to murder my wallet) Necropotence, Shared Animosity, and a couple of others. I'll update my list tomorrow morning, it's pretty late right now. Anyway, I'll look into Toxic Deluge since I haven't gotten a Damnation yet. I was looking into Bloodghast, but I wasn't quite sure on it since I hadn't seen anyone mention it until now. Also, I already have a Necropolis Regent in there :) I had a Mephidross Vampire, but I opted for the Necropolis Regent instead. I do see what you are saying about the Butcher of Malakir though, 7 cmc for a 5/4 even though he does fly... I think something better can go there. Some stuff I have on hand right now is Vampire Cutthroat, Pulse Tracker, Tithe Drinker (not really a fan), Voldaren Pariah  Flip, and Olivia Voldaren just to name a few off the top of my head. I was thinking maybe one of the 1 drops? (kinda leaning towards Vampire Cutthroat maybe) I'm all ears for suggestions though. Anyway, I'm kinda worried that my list a little bit light on the vampires compared to what I hear you guys say you have. I think Frank_Glascock said he has 33 creatures 30 being vampires if I remember right... Oh, lastly have you guys considered a Vanquisher's Banner? I thought that might be an ok card draw tool... You guys are the experts though

Your mana base is pretty even. I think I would change to feature more swamp and dual lands that tap for the or with . Check this page for some of those: All the lands in a sorted list. Makes it WAY easier haha.

Not knowing where you are playing this or how competitive you are aiming to be, I want to say that signets are faster, yes, but I always find when someone says "Turn 1: Plains for Sol Ring into Rakdos Signet" that it's underwhelming. That is the best you can hope for, sure. But I never count on that play. I find when I draw signets later in the game, it's not really a card I want to have. I will use it, yes. I'd rather cycle the card, if you will, and get something else.

But to each their own of course. I don't want this to sound like I'm putting down any ideas. That's what is so great about this community, the different viewpoints on things. Everyone sees things a different way and that's how you can really break a game wide open.

In the interest of lifegain (and again not knowing your play group), I disagree with cutting Sangromancer. Any time someone board wipes with that out, it's going to be a huge swing in life for you. I tend to always have a lifelink theme in my vampire decks. And with the amount of decks running token producers, it can easily be like 30+ life in a turn.

I do like Mentor of the Meek in this deck so if I was going to suggest something to come out it would probably be Tithe Drinker. Not that I don't like that card, because I really like using that card, but I think it's easier to cut than the rest of your creatures. Bloodghast would probably be my number one cut, but since he has the recursion that could interact with Mentor of the Meek and you just like it, it makes sense to leave him in.

Thanks severininfurs, I have been finding that the few times I get to combo off with Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond, I'm already winning.

I already own a playset of Tithe Drinker so I'll do some playtesting. I think I'll drop both Sanguine Bond and 1 Exquisite Blood and see how it goes.

I do like the Kambal, Consul of Allocation idea though.

Thanks again for the input!

I like the deck, and the creature spread overall seems quite nice. Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond seem a little slow, though. As far as replacements go, Kambal, Consul of Allocation seems amazing for your build. I also second the Tithe Drinker recommendation from ZendikariWol. Gifted Aetherborn also seems like he's worth a look, though I understand he's a bit expensive for a playset - if he's too expensive, maybe Vampire Nighthawk?
