Vampire Lacerator Discussion

I don't think two instances of madness is enough to justify 6 discard outlets. Heir of Falkenrath Flip could be Vampire Nighthawk and Call the Bloodline could be Gifted Aetherborn, and you'd probably create more tempo that way. All in all, I don't even think red is necessary if you're not going to use Falkenrath Gorger, Olivia Voldaren, etc. Vampire Lacerator, Kalastria Highborn, Sangromancer, and Gatekeeper of Malakir are some potential alternatives to Stromkirk Captain and Stensia Masquerade. Urge to Feed and Feast of Blood might be replacements for Lightning Bolt and Stensia Banquet. Or if you needed the burn to go face, maybe try Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire.

Well more in terms of current modern meta. Like I kind of had the idea of following Jund's lead because it's an established strategy and I liked it because it really embraces the concept of Black as a color. A deck like yours plays so completely differently but it honestly is really nice in regard to synergies. I was of the mind at one point madness vamps should go all-in on the madness mechanic but now I'm of the mind that Bloodghast and Asylum Visitor are cards you'd be playing anyway, just run Condemned and Copters/Lilianas and play the rest of the deck normally.
Cards I'd want to run if I were doing straight tribal are some combination of Vampire Nocturnus, Stromkirk Captain and/or Captivating Vampire, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Gifted Aetherborn, Stromkirk Condemned, Bloodghast, Asylum Visitor, Stromkirk Noble, Vampire Lacerator or Falkenrath Gorger, probably Viscera Seer. I really like Olivia Voldaren and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet but I'm not seeing them in most current vampire lists just because they don't fit the strategy. I obviously want about 7-9 removal (Push, Bolt, Terminate, MAYBE K command), and I feel like Liliana and Copter help here, but as you can see, 60 cards would not have space to do everything I want with this idea.
There's a classic version of my deck that was very tempo-oriented on my profile, before the madness cards started coming out. I was very happy playing that for years but now it feels outdated.

Thank you for commenting! I'm fairly new here (and to the game in general) so any suggestions are appreciated.
I wasn't sure whether to include Legion's Landing instead of Doomed Traveler because Doomed Traveler looks the same as 2 creatures due to its effect, but Maybe I should swap it out since Adanto, the First Fort is really nice.
Blood Baron of Vizkopa is interesting, but I don't think this deck will go over 30 life very often.
Draw cards is something I might need, so those two are definitely good suggestions.

Pretty cool list. You have a good split between tribal synergy and powerful cards. I think the doomed traveler should definitely be replaced with the Legion's Landing Flips I do see in your maybeboard. Another very powerful threedrop is Vampire Nighthawk. Also, Blade of the Bloodchief is insane in vampire tribal. Among the other powerful vampires are Vampire Lacerator and Blood Baron of Vizkopa. Also, how about Sign in Blood or Read the Bones for some card draw?

I feel like Bloodline Keeper is a bit too slow for Modern especially given your lack on 1-mana creatures. I don't think you need Rakish Heir or Stensia Masquerade either; you have plenty of pump as it is. Instead, try adding more low-costed creatures like more Stromkirk Noble, Vampire Lacerator, Vicious Conquistador, or Bloodghast.
Feast of Blood is awful. It really is. It's slow, it's situational, it's sorcery speed. Try instead Fatal Push and trade up for some fetch lands and add some Blood Crypts. Blackcleave Cliffs is also so much better than Dragonskull Summit if you can afford them. On the subject of removal, Gatekeeper of Malakir is insane. 3 mana for a chainer's edict with a 2/2 body and tribal support.
If you dropped a few of your heavier-costed cards you could look into a single copy of Olivia Voldaren, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Sanctum Seeker depending on how aggro you want to go. Other support lands to consider, largely depending on your budget are Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, Cavern of Souls, and Mutavault.
