Nantuko Husk is better thanVampiric Rites when it comes to sac outlets. I'd say use 2 Nantuko Husk and maybe 2 Geralf's Messenger over 2 Graf Harvest

Ok now i have some more time so ill try to make some suggestions for you. First i think that all the life gain is pointless. The deck is aggro so you should be lowering your opponents life total instead of raising yours. Elixir of immortality also does the opposite of what you want in this deck. You also have some pretty bad removal in this deck and there is much better budget options. Better card draw would also help. In an aggro deck you are going to run out of cards fast. Last i think there are some creatures in this deck that shouldn't be. but thats ok cause i think you are also running too many creatures so its an easy fix haha. Also i can tell that you wanted to go with an allies theme but alot of your allies have more than 2 power. You only have 12 allies and 4 of them have more than 2 power

lastly your land base seems alittle weird so ill suggest some stuff for that to.
1x Command Tower
1x Nomad Outpost
1x Evolving Wilds
1x Terramorphic Expanse
1x Rogue's Passage
1x Temple of Triumph
1x Temple of Silence
1x Temple of Malice
1x Temple of the False God
1x High Market
1x Hanweir Battlements
9x Mountain
9x Swamp
9x Plains

this would be a good budget land base for this deck. If you have any questions on cards then just ask. And obviously dont take all my suggestions it is your deck. Have fun!

Your Humble Defector + Homeward Path combo is better than you think, as the Defector doesn't get summoning sickness.

Tap, draw two, give to opponent

Tap Path, get control of Defector, tap again to draw more cards.

If you can get something that let's you untap Path each turn, in a 4 player game you can draw 8 cards a turn.

My suggestions are:

You could also run Mistveil Plains and Sunforger to combo with any instant or sorcery draw spells.

Vampiric Rites instead of Infernal Tribute?

Frank_Glascock on Bad BoneDaddy Markov Aristocrats

I am playing Edgar against the other Commander 2017 decks. A friend brought up an aristocrat theme on this deck and now I find this list. I have a few questions.

I count three sac outlets that Do not require mana to operate. Do you find that enough? Would you be opposed to running either Phyrexian Altar or Ashnod's Altar? Has Blade of the Bloodchief been good for you or could it be the cut?

Bloodghast seems really good here as it is cheap and is a great target for sacrifice.Metallic Mimic seems like a easy include on this list. Is Vampire Hexmage your worst two drop?I am playing Exquisite Blood and Cliffhaven Vampire because I like each card individually. They do form an infinite combo. Did you try to stay away from any combination win conditions or do you find these cards or others like these to be insufficient for the deck?

You are not playing any of the black tutors. Would you consider cutting all four of the planeswalkers for Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent and Enlightened Tutor (may be better in my list))?

What is your purpose behind Elixir of Immortality? It seems out of place in this list.

Anointed Procession and Shared Animosity each fuel your two win conditions. Any reason for their exclusion? I ask because yours was the first list I have seen that is running Brave the Sands, Retribution of the Ancients and Vampiric Rites. I really like Vampiric Rites, am not sure about Brave the Sands and think Retribution of the Ancients is too conditional.

Last_Laugh: Vampiric Rites may be up your alley if you want more card draw. Would also suggest Painful Truths and Night's Whisper if you want one-shot effects, or Asylum Visitor if you find yourself hellbent more often than not.

May also want to consider Mynea Frian, Dark Apostle from Ixalan when she drops. She's overperformed in testing.

Mynea Frian, Dark Apostle (2W)

Whenever one or more Vampire creatures you control attack, create a 1/1 white Vampire creature token with lifelink.2/2
