Vampire Lacerator Discussion

I removed Vampire Lacerator - this 2/2 has the 1 life penalty each upkeep but can be easily managed once you establish your board state with the life gainers.
I added 1 more of the following cards:
This should help in getting more creatures on the board without having a 1 life penalty to deal with each turn.

You have a bit of trimming to do in the land department. 53 is excessive for all but the most niche Commander decks plus you have quite a few non-basics that you have multiples of and that isn't allowed in a singleton format.
You'll want to cut down to 100 cards total and be around the 34-36 land count. Eliminating the multiples gets rid of 12 and I'd pull all of them that come into play tapped as Edgar is a very aggressive deck and tapped lands are slow lands.
Also because of how aggressive this commander wants to be, more one drops are your friend. I'd add both the Vampire Cutthroat and the Vampire Lacerator from your maybeboard as well as Viscera Seer and Indulgent Aristocrat .
Drana, Liberator of Malakir should keep your vamps growing.

Modern huh? Unless you wanna do a sacrifice engine you're better going Rakdos or Mardu.
Vamps also wanna run pretty light on mana in either case. 3 or less cost = good, use 4+ mana cards very sparingly. Like Sanguine/Exquisite are simply too slow to be good imo.
Now, depending on your budget, you could do something like.....
4 Viscera Seer , 4 Bloodghast , 4 Blood Artist or Kalastria Highborn , 4 Cordial Vampire , maybe 4 Vampire Nocturnus or Vampire Lacerator and 2 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Captivating Vampire , or maybe even 4 Dusk Legion Zealot or Gatekeeper of Malakir .
For hate spells, usable ones are things like Fatal Push , Lightning Bolt , Path to Exile , Terminate , Cast Down , Kolaghan's Command , or if you have money, Liliana of the Veil , Liliana, the Last Hope , and also to bring him up on this subject: Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord . Hand disruption is expensive, looking at Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , and Collective Brutality . But black has almost a monopoly on that.
Hope this gave you some insight. Welcome to the dark side.

How would you feel about using Knight of the Ebon Legion and/or Vampire of the Dire Moon instead Vampire Lacerator and\or Stromkirk Noble ? And what about Cordial Vampire ? We are getting lots of new options these days.

I actually made a $15 vampire deck for someone else a while back! Here it is if you want any ideas for your deck: $15 Madness Vampires.
Otherwise, here are the changes I would for sure make to your deck:
+3 Fiery Temper , -3 any of the other noncreature cards

Thank you Specterforge for all of those suggestions! Vampire Lacerator definitely isn't too hard for me to take out of the deck, and I can't believe I forgot Legion's Landing Flip!! I am putting it at 2 just to see how that goes with the Legendary part of it but I think that or 3 is definitely where I want it. Also I don't really care about having no 1 drop vampires in the deck, so taking out Vampire Cutthroat seems fine, especially with that Urge to Feed removal being so-so sweet. 12 sources of removal, one having a lord-like effect, definitely seems fine for a midrange deck, at least to me. Especially when one of the lords encourages said removal! Definitely excited to try out this updated list in the next few weeks.

So first off. I love your deck! I make budget and kitchen table decks for people all the time and actually just recently started getting into competitive building (Memory Dissolution) and I love helping people with their deck. Now to my suggestions. You should cut out Vampire Lacerator . He really only hurts you unless you are already winning. I would put in 2-4 Legion's Landing Flip in place. It enters and creates a 1/1 with lifelink that can flip and make more vampires with lifelink fueling your Cordial Vampire and Captivating Vampire engines as well as allow you to use any extra mana you have at the end of your opponents turn or just to dump mana into. This will also help in Grindy games by giving you a 1/1 with lifelink every turn (once flipped of course lol). Second is I would cut out Vampire Cutthroat . While his skulk ability is good, it becomes useless once you get any lords out. The lifelink is made up for with Legion's Landing Flip I previously mentioned. In its place I would put in Urge to Feed . It's a possible removal and allows you to buff any and all vampires you currently control. Do it at the end of your opponents turn to possibly kill a creature and then buff every vampire you have with no drawback since they will untap. BONUS!! Create a 1/1 vampire with Legion's Landing Flip, cast Urge to Feed targeting that vampire and trigger Cordial Vampire AND tap all your vampires for a total of 2 +1/+1 counters on all your vampires (on top of your lords!). Finally I would find where you could fit in Feast of Blood . Yes there's that condition where you need 2 vampires to cast it, but that's easy for this deck. This is a cheap catch all removal with the bonus of gaining 4 life. These suggestions would increase efficiency of the deck, make it so that you could interact with your opponent better and go to the long game if needed, and best of all: IT STAYS BUDGET! XD. Thanks for visiting my Ted talk lmao. (Also feel free to completely ignore my suggestions if you want lmao, and feel free to reach out to me if you want more suggestions or help with other/future decks!(And that goes to everyone who has made it this far lol))
