Vicious Conquistador Discussion

Sword-Point Diplomacy is pretty bad, I'd replace with either some kind of removal or Vampire's Zeal. It's a pretty nasty combat trick, especially if you can threaten profitable trades with any of your 1/1 tokens.

@Flyboarg, I go back and forth on Yahenni. I could go for more three drops, but Yahenni just seems to conditional. Yes it potentially gets huge, and if I was doing the boardwipe deck I drafted up on paper I would probably have it as a playset. But when it comes down to it, a 2/2 that only buffs itself for three doesn't fit a go-wide strat. I already have a couple so I plan on leaving them in while I build, but I don't know if they make the final cut.
@Apex_killjoy02, Vamps is a lifegain deck. Even without my tokens, I have 12 ways to gain life. Having a champion refill my hand turn six after I played everything really helps to close out the game. Duskborne Skymarcher fills a very interesting role in the deck. It is surprisingly common to go turn 1: Legion's Landing Flip, turn 2 any two of Duskborne Skymarcher, Vicious Conquistador, Skymarcher Aspirant, turn three swing to flip LL into Adanto, the First Fort and play a four drop or two two drops, or heck even activating Adanto. I want to make sure I have enough one drops to make that consistently possible. Plus, if I have out a Legion Lieutenant or Sanctum Seeker, it's getting at least two damage in the air in every turn. Sometimes this deck, or decks like it, get into board stalls pretty quick and that flying chip damage really adds up. (I also have a bit of a soft spot for any art done by Seb McKinnon ever since my first attempt at competitive magic was a Debt to the Deathless deck)

I would say if it was an aggro deck or not. If it is then I would take out Yahenni, Undying Partisan,Twilight Prophet, and Martyr of Dusk. They all don't fit an aggro plan. If you took those out then you would just have to add Vicious Conquistador,and Duskborne Skymarcher. That also would give you space to add whatever removal that you think you should add. Regardless of what you add, bringing in more Sanctum Seeker is a must. It gives you a higher chance of hitting it when it matters most.

Sanctum Seeker and Vicious Conquistador is definitely still a must for vampires. I'd try to find a home for them somewhere. Bishop's Soldier and Yahenni, Undying Partisan would do well also in here. And I only like Yahenni mainly for fumigates. You have a massive army, and they try to bored wipe, with Yahenni out, theyd only get 1 life. Metallic mimic seems like its fitting, but I find it too fragile compared to the other options, and arguel's blood fast doesnt really help out as much as one would think. Other than that it looks great imo. Oh Sentinel Totem for sideboard for graveyard hate.

You probably need to add some more 1-drop Vampires to your list to start aggressing early. I've been playing a guy's casual Vampire deck since I first started playing Magic some 6 years ago, and I still have trouble beating it; it's just that powerful.
Viscera Seer is super great at filtering out bad draws, as well as being a sac outlet. Never underestimate sac outlets. Recommend as a 2-of.
For 2-drops, I see you have a playset of Gifted Aetherborn, which is top-notch, and I also recommend Kalastria Highborn for eking out the last bits of life from your opponent with suicide attacks. Gatekeeper of Malakir is also a beast; filling your curve and/or providing removal is efficiency at its finest.
Filling out Captivating Vampire to a playset would be the next ideal thing to do. Having all the lords you can always helps.
Throw in an extra copy or two of Blade of the Bloodchief. Its damn cheap to play and equip, and it gets stupid fast.
If you want cutting recommendations, Bloodbond Vampire isn't fantastic, you're not running boardwipes or discard for Sangromancer, Alms of the Vein doesn't have a madness outlet, Dash Hopes doesn't always work the way you want it to (but keep it in if you want; it's always fun to play), and while Viridian Longbow is cute, it's a bit too expensive to equip, and more often than not, you want to be aggressive with your creatures.
Hopefully this helps!

I was thinking about Vicious Conquistador, but the +1 toughness doesn't seem worth it compared to the possibility of recurring Oathsworn Vampire.
