Vampiric Tutor Discussion

I love this so much. I haven't had your consistency, but I don't doubt it because I don't mulligan. also, I'm bad at tutoring. would be fun to have a format where both players are on this deck and take turns at the same time and have to race to win first. I'm not sure I love Enlightened Tutor, I feel like Vampiric Tutor would be better. I also feel silly posting this serious a comment, but I think we will all benefit from this deck being better. Imperial Seal does the same thing as the tutor for more money, so you might want that instead.

Providing budget alternatives is not that simple because the deck is balanced as is and changing any single card would alter its equilibrium. I will try my best, but do keep in mind that with the following changes you will need to play the deck a lot slower than before. Without free counterspells you will need to wait for when you can leave mana open, and so on and so forth. Hopefully, the fact that all the decks in the tournament follow the same budget restrictions can make up for this. Here are my budget changes:
These are all direct substitutions. I took the cards you mentioned and replaced them with their budget counterparts. If you think some of them aren't good enough (and in most cases they are not), then you can consider including something completely different instead. I'm thinking about cards like Propaganda, Torpor Orb, more removal, more card draw, more ramp. You have the privilege of knowing the decks you will be facing, so you can tweak the deck according to your matchups.
If you want to be prepared against a token deck, try shaving some single target removals or counterspells for a few extra board wipes. Just be extra careful against Meren because they tend to play a lot of Fleshbag Marauder-like effects, which is something this deck really struggles with. Make use of your haste enablers to kill your opponent during the very first turn you play Lazav, before he or she has the opportunity to play those cards.
I wish you good luck for your tournament, and let me know about your results!

As far as counters go, I don't play many and when I do it's to protect my stuff. You can never go wrong with Counterspell. I like Rebuff the Wicked, Disallow, Cancel, Dissipate, Unwind,Countersquall, Absorb. That new Fierce Guardianship is pretty cool.

My recommendations :
I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.
MANA COST TOO HIGH
I would first add better ramp, better draw, potential Stax, tutors and then other win cons.
Verity Circle (good against dorks)
Plunge into Darkness (a good Impulse)
CONSULT COMBO Demonic Consultation
AD NAUSEAM COMBO Angel's Grace
Ad Nauseam (draw whole deck, can Windfall and make everyone die while AG means you can't lose
Heliod Walking Ballista
Rocks that produce at least three mana total (outlet is extort with blind obedience or crypt ghast) If have pristine Talisman gain infinite life, which is infinite draw with commander
Didn't look at landbase

Cards I'm adding:
1 week ago
Sire of Stagnation fits the landfall theme. He's straight gas and draws 8 cards off 1 opposing fetchland.
Thassa, Deep-Dwelling will further help you abuse ETB effects each turn. Bounce Ravenous Chupacabra each turn to keep the battlefield clear, draw 2 extra cards per turn with Baleful Strix, put 2 more lands in play with Wood Elves, or continuously wipe the opposing board with Massacre Wurm.
I'm seeing a lack of tutors with this deck. I imagine some are too expensive like Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor, which are amazing. Others in the form of Rune-Scarred Demon, Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower really help the deck find pieces and continue to accelerate their board state without sacrificing anything. Btw, Bellower can find Empath.
Bojuka Bog provides graveyard interaction without affecting consistency. Swap it out for a swamp.

I've gotten lucky enough to get this combo with a sol ring and a signet and dropped a Blightsteel Colossus on turn 2

AscendedLandfalls, in regards to Vampiric Tutor - do you think it's a good idea to swamp it in for Inexorable Tide? It is a very pricey card CMC wise...but it does help me close a game if there are poison counters on my opponents. I feel at odds about it. What're your thoughts?
