Vampire Cutthroat Discussion

You're already in b/r, so Stromkirk Captain will make those vamps work hard. I like the fall of the hammer effects, but I'd like to see more Everlasting Torment/Corrosive Mentor/Necroskitter/Bloodlord of Vaasgoth/Mephidross Vampire shenanigans. Death Pits of Rath/Endless Whispers has potential, as does Shriveling Rot. Vampire Cutthroat/Indulgent Aristocrat will make the whole list more traditional and stable.

I like where this is going however you should aim for 60 cards as going over only hurts your chances of drawing the cards you need. Duress doesn't need to be here, if anything Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize are just better options if you really want to play with disruption. Shock doesn't need to be here at all, it's simply taking up space. Instead use Victim of Night or Murder for some additional removal. Personally, I would drop Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Bloodmad Vampire (good cards but not really a fit here) and replace them with Vampire Nocturnus. Malakir Bloodwitch is another card that I don't see the benefit of having. Having it in hand slows down your deck; that said, if your goal is purely life gain then it makes sense, but then the other cards in the deck make me think life-gain is just an added bonus, not a focus, otherwise I would recommend Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond for that combo. I like the use of Vampire Cutthroat too many vamp decks neglect this card and use Pulse Tracker instead, but Cutthroat, in my opinion, is just as good especially if the game lasts longer. And finally, there is the mana, things like Blood Crypt are beneficial but not a must.

Welcome to the grey side, brother ;)This looks fricken sweet!
I'm gonna toss my two cents at you now ;)
Holy/unholy strength has a great flavoux in an orzhov deck, but as an orzhiv player, you aways need to be asking yourself: could I be running more Edge of the Divinity?
Since most of your stuff already has flying/lifelink, gift of the orzhova seems a tad superfluous :)
Apart from that. I've got nothing. This looks super good! Maybe Obzedat's Aid?
Stay frosty, dude!

Interesting choice on banshees blade over Blade of the Bloodchief. Gifted Aetherborn works really well with the captain, all those keywords are great. Vampire Cutthroat might work batter than lacerator as it can continue to slip in damage. Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos is super strong with sacrifice outlets and kalitas.
Keep some hand disruption in sideboard- Duressetc will work wonders in trickier matchups.If there is a lack of graveyard removal in your meta some stuff like No Rest for the Wicked is pretty neat protection against supreme verdict.

Look at Obelisk of Urd and Mutavault to go with your tribal. Also, Asylum Visitor, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Indulgent Aristocrat, Kalastria Highborn, Malakir Bloodwitch, Necropolis Regent, Stromkirk Condemned, Vampire Cutthroat, Erebos, God of the Dead.

Cards that immediately jump out for having too low of an impact for most tables:
Some of these may just be in there because they were available, which is fine, but if you're looking to trim the fat, these are the ones that struck me as the worst inclusions.

Since you have your deck labeled as competitive, my suggestions will be geared to make it as competitive as possible without regard to budget. If budget is an issue, you'd be better off labeling this deck accordingly and removing the competitive tag.
Firstly, your manabase must change if you want to make this deck competitive. As it is right now, you can't play a turn 1 Falkenrath Gorger into a turn 2 Gifted Aetherborn or Bloodghast, which is your best line of play. To fix this, your mana should look closer to something like this: 4x Bloodstained Mire, 4x Blackcleave Cliffs, 4x Blood Crypt, 7x Swamp, 1x Mountain. Playing a 2-color land untapped on turn 1 for your turn 1 creature will allow you to play any of your 2-drops or 2 additional 1-drops the following turn. This is important in an aggressive deck like this so you can put plenty of early pressure on your opponent.
Second, maximize the best creatures in your deck. You have a bunch of 3-ofs, and quite honestly some of them aren't as good as others. I'd make the following changes: -3 Vampire Cutthroat, -3 Olivia's Bloodsworn, -1 Indulgent Aristocrat, -1 Blade of the Bloodchief; +1 Bloodghast, +1 Gifted Aetherborn, +1 Captivating Vampire, +1 Stromkirk Captain, +4 Vampire Lacerator.
Third, use good supporting spells. Your aggressive vampire deck is not equipped to make good use of Surgical Extraction, so I'd move them to the sideboard in favor of more removal in the maindeck. Fatal Push is one of the best removal spells in black, so I'd use 3 in that spot. The 3 Darkness aren't ideal, but again are good cards for your sideboard against opposing aggressive decks. For the maindeck, 3 Inquisition of Kozilek or 3 Thoughtseize would be better in that spot to take out some of the better cards in your opponent's hand before they get a chance to play them. If you don't like the idea of the discard spells, then a utility creature like Gatekeeper of Malakir would be good as a 3-of in that spot, since it doubles as a removal spell and should be easier to cast with the improved manabase from above. It also synergizes nicely with Kalitas if you draw it after Kalitas is in play.
Hope some of that helped. Id try out those changes and see how you fare. The lands are a little pricey, but the whole reason they are is because they're the best way to have 2 colors in a deck and never worry about having wrong or untapped mana when you need them. Happy playing!

I've played some vampires in my time - I've found Drana's Emissary to underperform- you might want a one or two drop in its place, but maindeck Always Watching in its place will round off a lot of edges- especially if you combine it with Bad Moon to make these small lifelinkers a lot bigger. Indulgent Aristocrat is my one drop of choice for lifelink and the ability to pump other vampires, and alongside Vampire Cutthroat provides a very consistent lifegain 'floor' to the deck. Making those swaps would leave almost every creature in your deck lifelinky, allowing for some Sanguine Bond shenanigans. If you do go heavier on the w/b enchantments, Dark Prophecy will help you stay on the board, and something like Cradle of Vitality enables a strong longer game.all told, have fun!
