cbdragonite, I think that you should take out Vampire Nighthawks and Blood Artists so you have room for Leyline of Sanctity and more Rest in Peace or Spellskite depending on your meta, whether you have more infect and burn or dredge.

Interesting deck.

Have you playtested this? I'd get worried that giving them Sleeper Agent that's doing 2 damage to them, but swinging for 3 would put you at the disadvantage. I see Wall of Souls, which is a good play, but is that enough? Maybe a Pacifism to keep it in check over on their side of the table.

I like Solitary Confinement and I feel like it would heavily benefit from some Madness. Asylum Visitor could get you some cards when you run out, and/or Alms of the Vein would do a little damage and give you some life back. Lone Missionary is good, but I feel you'd need more of them and ways to bounce them for addition life (Cloudshift / Long Road Home) or a creature that can swing for life and not be blocked by the Sleeper (Aerial Responder / Vampire Nighthawk.

Sidenote: I highly recommend the Nighthawk. So much value there.

Maybe I'm totally off base and this works great as it. What do you think?

Man, I cannot believe that I forgot to suggest my all time favorite card for vamps-- Vampire Nighthawk! That would be a wicked good addition to the deck!

Oh yeah, since you have a casual deck, I forgot about one of my favorite cards of all time-- Vampire Nighthawk! That would be a wicked addition to this deck!

Nope, I've had the Aerial Responder since the beginning. Unless you mean new as in the card just came out, it's a Kaladesh card. His lifelink with all the +1's floating around really help when the game stretches out! He's the white Vampire Nighthawk! Same everything but replace deathtouch with vigilance.

The brass herald is cool, but not a soldier, and his cost is a little high. My only cards above 4 are Captain of the Watch, Captain's Call, and my Elspeth, and she's more for flavor since I only draw her 1 outta 20 games! Lol

I like the Enlistment Officer though. Refilling my hand would be great.

I've actually been playing with an extra Aerial Responder and Precinct Captain because I haven't coughed up the $ for the Field Marshal yet. $6 a piece! Idk if I ever will. The deck is working fine without him. Would like another 2 or 3 drop instead of him.

tchau204 Thank you for your input! I'm pretty new to magic, and this is my second deck I have built. I struggled with what to put into the deck outside of creatures, as my other deck is an elf deck with a simple focus of just swarming a bunch of elves, which leaves me unfamiliar with all various other play strategies, such as hand disruption as you pointed out.

If I were to add in Blood Artist what would you suggest to remove? Vampire Lacerator? and what if I added Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet?

After playing this deck a couple times (nearly complete, I was missing Vampire Lacerator, and Blade otB, I subbed in some random vampires we had laying around that I only drew 1 of) against a Huntmaster of the Fells  Flip deck I see that hand disruption is essential, especially while waiting for Vampire Nighthawk or Vampire Nocturnus to turn up so I can start to really do damage. I have Dismember, but what about Tragic Slip? What combo of the rest of the cards would you suggest? (Budget isnt an issue within reason)

Sorry for so many questions, thank you for your comment!
