Vampire Nighthawk Discussion

Keep in mind that I don't play modern, so there's that. Nevertheless, I might suggest Nature's Way or (secondarily) Rabid Bite. I know they're 2 mana sorcery speed, but Nature's Way also gives the targeted creature vigilance and trample. Moreover, both protect your creatures from dying (they don't fight the other creature, only deal it damage-- and you can target one of your own tapped creatures!)). That might be worth the tradeoff to a sorcery in modern?
Your ramp is heavy on 3 mana spells. Maybe a couple more on the 1 and 2 drop part of the curve? Maybe Gnarlwood Dryad and/or Narnam Renegade? You may not get delirium or revolt, but you still get a 1/1 for , and that's still pretty good.
I don't see many opportunities to get delirium for the Deathcap Cultivator. It's a good mana dork, but not so great in a fight in a deck (without delirium) built around deathtouch. Theoretically, you won't see your artifacts, lands, or enchantments in the graveyard, so that limits you to instants, sorceries, and creatures going into the graveyard. As a result, delirium may be hard to get to trigger the Deathcap Cultivator deathtouch. Then again, maybe that's less of a concern for you and you prefer the mana ability. That's cool if you do. Everyone has their preferences! :-)
Cool deck! +1 from me!

The inability to playtest with sideboards on tappedout is one of my biggest frustrations. So far, my best way of getting around this is writing what card in the main deck got swapped out on paper, so whenever I draw that card, I go "hey, Vampire Nighthawk is actually Sadistic Sacrament."
Any other cards besides Sadistic Sacrament you want me to make a switched-out version for, and what cards to switch for that case?

I had had my eye on Debt to the Deathless but forgot to put it in, and Crypt Ghast goes great with it and totally skipped my mind. Thanks for those! I agree with you that there wasn't much consistency. I basically put a bunch of 1-ofs in and played with it for a night with my group to see what worked well and what didn't. Tithe Drinker was an MVP obviously. Tablet of the Guilds gained me so much life I was pretty consistently getting to turn Blood Baron of Vizkopa on if I wasn't getting targeted. The Vampire Nighthawks im on the fence about, but bumped them up to 3 and will see how they play. I know theyre amazing value, just felt kinda underwhelming. I also added some more spot removal to deal with major threats. Pretty much all the other 1-ofs are cards I just really like and want to keep in the deck, even if it's gimped a little bit because of it. My main goal is to have fun and enjoy the deck and play cool stuff. Might take out the Gray Merchant of Asphodel because I have the Debts now, which serve a similar purpose. Let me know if you have any more suggestions or comments and thank you!

You don't have a lot of consistency to be honest. You might want more duplicates of the same card and not so many one-ofs. I wouldn't play a card really unless I had at least two or three of them. Mana curve is another thing to consider all though yours isn't that bad. And I would assume you wouldn't want to make the deck too strong and over priced :P Maybe 4 Vampire Nighthawk. More Anguished Unmaking, more Dark Ritual, more Blood Baron of Vizkopa. could focus on devotion with 4x Gray Merchant of Asphodel Gift of Orzhova. I dont think you need life link enchantments, should just use life link creatures. Anyway some cool and cheap cards to also consider maybe Obzedat, Ghost Council Unmake Oblivion Ring Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Debt to the Deathless Crypt Ghast Victim of Night Murder Tribute to Hunger Mortify

OK, so mono black vamps. You'll live or die on sideboard, I'd reccomend a set of Pithing Needles, Ratchet Bomb and as much hand disruption as you can afford. highborn I've always found to underperform outside of Blade of the Bloodchief/Bloodchief Ascension because of the mana investment. Keeping mana up like that really doesn't go well with the spam creatures plan. If you're running Vampire Lacerator go all in with the Indulgent Aristocrat and Bloodthrone Vampires with something like Whip of Erebos or swap it out for something better at stalling- Gifted Aetherborn is a better Vampire Nighthawk in any meta that doesn't care about the flying. Run both if stalling to midgame and not running whip. Vampire Hexmage while great, should be sideboard for times when first strike matters or plainswalkers. Consider more Gatekeeper of Malakir- they trade excellently, and win games. Lillana of the viel is fantastic if you plan a sideboard to functionally turn this into 8-rack, or run more disposable creatures, but might be a wasted investment unless you have them already from another deck- Ensnaring Bridge and Call the Bloodline normally performs better in this tribal if games stall like that. Mono black deckbuilder's toolbox is my big list of modern mono black cards- if you think something is missing please let me know, and remember to playtest extensively before diving into bigger budget cards.
