DrkNinja Appreciate the suggestion, I'd love Sorin Markov for the deck, he's just a tad too pricey at the moment with all mt EDH projects going on. However, I'll add him in as soon as I have the funding for him!

I agree with Blood Baron tbh, he's in a similar boat as with Vampire Nighthawk and other vamps that were suggested for this deck. He's situational, as you said. The only problem is I don't know exactly what to add except some cards from Ixalan that aren't out just yet (The bishop one). As soon as we get more vamps in Ixalan, there's gonna be some major facelifts for this deck!

Thanks for the advice!

If you're going with a Vampire tribal theme, you should try to go as deep as possible. Adaptive Automaton, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Stromkirk Captain, Vampire Nocturnus, Metallic Mimic, and Malakir Bloodwitch all do work in my Vampire tribal deck. If you feel like you can't fit in so many vampire creatures, you could try Mephidross Vampire as a way to compensate.

Some of the vampires out there provide a boost to lifegain/drain such as the aforementioned Malakir Bloodwitch, but also Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble, Vampire Nighthawk, Sangromancer, and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is also strong grave hate.

As for lifegain, why not Authority of the Consuls, Wall of Reverence, and Transcendent Master? I've found that Pontiff of Blight and Suffer the Past have worked for me, as well.

Also, some additional utility would be good, like Bastion Protector, Rakdos Charm, Viscera Seer, Necropotence, Hide/Seek, Terminate... You might even want to consider Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Erebos, God of the Dead, considering all the black mana symbols floating around.

Nice, I've been looking for a good alteration to the Vampire Commander deck! Looks interesting.

I really feel like Vampire Nighthawk, Gifted Aetherborn and Stensia Masquerade deserve a place in any Vampire deck, although I can see that's not the focus of your deck. Growing first strike deathtouchers are always funny, though. The 'counters on player damage'-effect stacks with Drana so it gets out of control real fast.

Any reason you're not slotting in Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin Markov?

Thanks for the Suggestions. I'm still trying to decide if I want this to be more tribal treefolk, or just good creatures with high toughness. I'm leaning towards the latter. Wall of Junk is definitely legal but has been errata'ed to be a wall and have defender. Grizzled Leotau is fantastic for the mana cost, but might be a little vanilla. I'm just adding Aerial Responder and Vampire Nighthawk

Vampire Nighthawk is a beast!!!!! He's no joke and Gifted Aetherborn is the same card minus flying for 1 less mana. They're brutal to have in the same deck.

Cavern of Souls is probably the best tribal land out there but since this a budget deck I've chosen to leave it out. Fatal Push is the best removal for black, no argument there, but again same thing, budget.

Bloodline Keeper  Flip is a great vamp but 4 mana is actually a lot and since Vampire Nocturnus is in the deck too, he kinda takes Bloodline Keeper  Flip's spot.

I like it. Simple. Straight forward. Vampire Nighthawk is an absolute beast!

Oh ya, i meant Eldritch Evolution. It was the only reason i had green splashed in the deck. Eat a 2 drop on turn 3 to put my wincon on the battlefield, why not? Worked really well when I just couldn't draw a Vampire Nocturnus, I would just hunt it down. You're totally right, a third color splash is just harsh sometimes and it makes the manabase a little too awkward. Are Call the Bloodline and Heir of Falkenrath  Flip your only discard outlets here? Vampire Nighthawk is one of my all time favorite cards, and probably my favorite creature, but sadly he doesn't work well with others as a 3 drop and doesn't do any boosting. He really is a stand alone guy and you may be able to put something better in there for him. Maybe the 4th denizen or 3rd aristocrat?
