Knight of the Ebon Legion May be the correct choice over Vicious Conquistador . I just wanted something that more reliably applies more pressure early. Knight May warrant more testing though if combos don’t take over and the format establishes itself as midrangey.

Updates to the sideboard have been made.

It could definitely be adapted but missing Stromkirk Captain is rough. Maybe Vicious Conquistador in place of Stromkirk Noble and Furyblade Vampire in place of Bloodghast . What time replace the Captain with however.

Zorous, Thank you very much for your recommendations they are great! I was thinking that I was lacking ways to get the tokens on Bloodchief Ascension .

Trouble with Arterial Flow is that I do not have any vampires other than the Vicious Conquistador I would put in there.

I love the idea of Stab Wound , a good way to limit damage but also get my tokens!

My only feeling from playing this deck, even with Blood Pet and Dark Ritual I lack the mana to play the cards I really want or need too.

Haven't seen this combo before, but it looks juicy. I think a problem you might have is just getting some guaranteed damage to get the Bloodchief counters. Subbing in a Piranha Marsh or two for some swamps could get help in getting some of those counters.

Vicious Conquistador , Cauldron Familiar + Witch's Oven , or Retreat to Hagra could also be a way to get some life loss going on. Though this isn't quite getting you there.

Something like Stab Wound would be perfect if they have a big enough creature to put it on. Highway Robber also guarantees the 2 life loss and is a man on the field or Hideous End for some removal, and to get a trigger on your enemy's turn.

If you are leaning towards Vicious Conquistador , Fell Specter and Arterial Flow could work up some good synergy.

Hope this helps!

Several of the cards you mentioned I already have, but you've also given me several good suggestions.

Indulgent Aristocrat takes away some of my creatures and mana for (in my opinion) too little benefit. Yes having a +1/+1 counter on each of my creatures is nice, but as I said to Kjartan, this deck doesn't field many vampires at once, and I have several better options for combat than Indulgent Aristocrat .

Vampire Cutthroat is a weak option as well. It can provide some hits later game, but I prefer my 1/2s better.

Lashwrithe is too heavy in mana cost for the gain it gives, but I may have to look into Blade of the Bloodchief .

Guul Draz Vampire is too situational, Shadow Alley Denizen is too low-impact, and Pulse Tracker is out-classed by Vicious Conquistador . Stromkirk Condemned is good, I've added three of him to the decklist.

Gonti's Machinations is a possibility, but it's situational as well. Bump in the Night is too low-impact; it just hits the enemy, it doesn't further my board position.

Several of the spells you mention in the "cheap effective spells" list would make a great sideboard, which I'm afraid I'll have to get to later.

Alright, let's get down to it! Anje Falkenrath is relatively new and I'm not yet sold on her validity as a vampire commander. My primary hang up is the overall weakness of madness as a mechanic. It is still critically underrepresented on cards, and of those that do exist only a handful are actually any good. I'm not saying it can't be done, just that I am skeptical that it can compete with existing vampire archetypes.

My overall impression is that you've got a decent base here, but have made several choices that I see a lot of new EDH players make in their early decks. In general, you could use more card draw and I would encourage you to take a look at EDHREC or other vampire decks on here for inspiration in terms of what kinds of effects truly shine in EDH versus other formats.

Liliana's Caress > Megrim , but your mana curve is all sorts of busted for earlier game workings. and looks to be less than workable until you get that 4th land. i suggest Vicious Conquistador for an early blocker, a fairly decent early survival capable card at 2 toughness for 1 mana, with the passive abilty to proc when you attack. card is fairly cheap money wise too. Feast of Blood or Walk the Plank will greatly help board control for early game too and will combo well with your Sangromancer card

have you ever considered Eland Umbra for more important creatures that could be removed from a quick Shock Spell or creature ability, or even a kill card? this would be particularly handy for Vicious Conquistador Legion Lieutenant or Duskborne Skymarcher in your deck. Holy Mantle is another option, and is a great work around for chump blocking, but more expensive mana wise
