Vampire Outcasts Discussion

ok, thanks ghoul_Legion- I've been trying to decide how to put Vampire Nighthawk in and that does seem to make the most sense - it's just painful since my Vampire Outcasts have been in the deck the longest :P

Deck seems pretty solid already!
The one card in your deck that seems out of place is Braid of Fire. Since that mana enters your pool on your upkeep, you can't use it in your main phase. Unless a card like Kruphix, God of Horizons says otherwise the mana would leave your pool and thus could only cast instants with it. I feel like that for your deck it's nice, but doest work with most of your other cards. With your current mainboard configuration i'm also not too in love with Whip of Erebos as most of your creatures are small until they can do damage which makes them not as great to bring back. I could see it being justified maybe but for right not it seems a bit low power.
You also have 7 cards that have an ability trigger when you deal damage. Makes me wonder if Temur Battle Rage has a home here as it means that the creature will do damage twice in the same combat. Even with things like Vampire Outcasts it could do a decent amount of damage.
As for your sideboard, I think that needs a bit more work than the maindeck. Generally speaking, the sideboard is used to change your deck to give you matchups agaisnt other decks. For instance if you were against a graveyard based deck, you might be able to being in something like Leyline of the Void. As it is it appears to be more of a collection of cards that you couldnt find room for in the mainboard. Some of the cards in there also seem to be a tad out of place. Vicious Shadows for instance costs a lot of mana. Yes it's powerful when it hits play, but without any ramp i think it is pretty likely for it to be stranded in your hand for most of the game.
Hope this helps! again seems like a pretty solid deck already.

Honestly, I think you could morph this into a R/B Vampire Tribal deck pretty easily. You already have quite a few cards that give boosts to Vampires, so why not but in some Stromkirk Captain, Stensia Masquerade, Captivating Vampire, Vampire Outcasts, Blade of the Bloodchief, Urge to Feed, and Blood Tribute. You could also go with a strong R/B Vampire deck that uses Madness too, using those discard abilities plus Falkenrath Gorger.

Cards that immediately jump out for having too low of an impact for most tables:
Some of these may just be in there because they were available, which is fine, but if you're looking to trim the fat, these are the ones that struck me as the worst inclusions.

Great deck! I have doubts about Vampire Outcasts though. It seems a bit pricey to have 4 in the deck. Perhaps try adding more vampires and have more variety.

I like the deck, and I really like the concept! I don't know if this is supposed to be budget, but I'm going to suggest as if it isn't, minus big money cards ($10+). (Long post incoming!)
I would recommend cutting Smelt for Rakdos Charm. Destroying one artifact is usually not going to swing a game, and while the charm is more expensive, it has the effect you want on it, along with the flexibility of exiling a graveyard (shutting down reanimator) and punishing having tons of creatures, which really hurts token decks.
Uncaged Fury, Mark of the Vampire, Untamed Hunger, and Consecrated by Blood are better replaced by Vampire Nocturnus, Captivating Vampire, Guul Draz Overseer, and Obelisk of Urd. They're more reliable, and you lose less card advantage. Not to mention three of them are more vampires!
Assuming Boiling Earth is meant to kill things, you may want Biting Rain or Consume the Meek, as it they kill a lot more small creatures. Yes, they may hit your creatures, but killing more is usually worth it.
As a sidenote, Elusive Tormentor Flip is illegal in this deck, as it's flip side is blue. I know TappedOut says it's legal, but that is incorrect. To replace it, I suggest Bloodline Keeper Flip. Same mana cost, but much more powerful.
I hope all of that helps! I'm no expert deckbuilder, but I think most of this will make the deck better.
