Vicious Offering Discussion

Raise Dead isn't a bad graveyard retrieval card, but there isn't much that's better in Standard right now; options would be Recover , Soul Salvage , and FinD. Cast Down hits non-legendary creatures, and Price of Fame hits legendary creatures for cheaper than non-legendary creatures, so they complement each other nicely. If you're willing to ramp your opponent and splash green, you can pick up Assassin's Trophy , although probably not on a budget. Moment of Craving is not a bad card; it's one of the few things that get rid of Adanto Vanguard cheaply (since a creature with zero or less toughness is removed from the battlefield even if it's indestructible). You might consider replacing some or all copies of it with Vicious Offering if you're willing to sacrifice creatures sometimes, or with Dead Weight for a persistent effect without the life gain. A strictly more powerful but also more expensive option is Vraska's Contempt . None of those cards synergize especially well with Sengir Vampire because Sengir Vampire is a 4/4, which means that most of the time it will either kill a creature by itself or die to it, rendering the later death of the creature meaningless since you no longer control Sengir Vampire. If you're looking for that type of synergy I recommend Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood , although he's very expensive mana-wise for a Standard deck (which is probably not horrible in casual play but might bite you in the butt at a tournament when he gets killed with Price of Fame or similar after sideboarding). As an additional recommendation that's kind of like Moment of Craving thematically, you might consider Arterial Flow (both are useful in your deck but serve different roles); there's also Moment of Triumph as another vampire-themed combat trick. If you like all these vampire-themed cards for flavor reasons, search through the Ixalan and Rivals of Ixalan sets; they were tribal sets with Merfolk, Pirates, Vampires, and Dinosaurs as the tribes, so probably about 20% of the cards are vampire-themed in those two sets.

First of all, I must say that this seems like a pretty cool deck! I am also super hyped for an Aristocrats deck I want to build with the new set. The build I'm going for is much more Aggro, with quite a lot of recursion for a normal Aggro deck. You can check it out here if you want! :D
I like a lot your idea though, you seem much more able to abuse the token generators. Compared to the version I'm considering, this deck can't be as explosive, but it seems it has a much better late game than my version.
However, there's a couple suggestions I want to make in case it might be better for this version. I think Priest of the Forgotten Gods will be an all-star in Aristocrats. Yes, two creatures is a lot to sacrifice, but it enables so much! You make them sac a creature, you add two black mana and you draw a card! You could easily sac the Reassembling Skeleton and a token, for example, and use the black mana to bring back the skeleton. If you have Teysa on the field, and sac creatures with Afterlife, you get as little as four tokens! Or ping four times with Judith! Those two last examples are a bit Christmaslandy, but I think the Priest is one of the best sac outlets in the new set. I was proxy testing with a friend, and sometimes it's just absurd!
Also, despite the presence of both Lava Coil and Vraska's Contempt , I encourage you to include more Seraph of the Scales . If they try to exile it, you could sacrifice it to Pitiless Pontiff , to the Priest if you end up including it, or even to some cheap removal such as Final Payment or Vicious Offering (in case you face indestructible creatures in your meta). I only have two in my list, but I try to keep it more low on CMC. And still I might include another one! haha
Finally, I would definitely include some removal Mainboard, either Mortify or Bedevil in your sideboard are great cards (although Mortify is sometimes easier to cast). Oh! And Hunted Witness or Legion's Landing Flip might be nice includes, just because they fit on the curve and are pretty good cards on their own.
Well, that's basically it! I'm sorry for such a long comment I wrote ^^' In general, I would say it looks like a pretty cool list. Good luck and have fun brewing!

Lotleth Giant works best with Liliana, Untouched By Death and 4 Stitcher's Supplier I would highly recommend both of those cards with this deck. I was playing Arena and hit my opponent for 12 life with Lotleth Giant and a graveyard full of zombies thanks to Sticher's Supplier.
As above said it really is worth playing Cabal Stronghold
Also 2-3 Desecrated Tomb would go nicely in this deck.
Ritual of Soot might be something to consider for the main or sideboard it's a good boardwipe

Nice deck, it's simular to what I built here check it out if you like for a few ideas: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/m19-budget-zombies-1/
my suggestions would be add 1-2 Open the Graves it's a nice card to have since you will be sacing a few zombs it's good get something back for sacing and your Death Barron can power up them tokens. Lord of the Accursed would be a nice add too as it powers up your zombs and that ability is really useful. Crucible of Worlds is an expensive card but would be a nice one of as I play a simular deck in standard atm and you end up getting a few lands in your graveyard so it is very useful especially since your playing 4 Stitcher's Supplier Necrotic Wound would be good since your deck is very heavy on getting zombies in the graveyard and it can deal with indestrutible creatures I would switch Creeping Chill with Necrotic Wound as the mana cost is high for not a lot except the life gain Vicious Offering is worth while mention as well as it fits in with the sacing nature of your deck. Dread Wanderer would be a nice replacement to Diregraf Ghoul just because that ability is quite useful and is simular to Diregraf Ghoul.
Ravenous Harpy would be good sideboard encase of any decks with flying creatures.
as for names how about: "Undead Nightmare" "Creeping call of the Dead" "Call from beyond the Grave" "Shrieking Calls from the Grave" "The dead shall rise again" "Scary Monsters and Super Creeps" just a few suggestions off top of my head.
Hope that helps, I think your deck is pretty cool it has good synergy 1+

@Quadsimotto, thanks for the upvote and comment.
Hah, the only reason I have Doom Whisperers is due to me pulling them from packs and originally running Liliana's Contract for a win-con. Necrotic Wound was in the first draft and build of this deck. It just ended up being very inconsistent, the Undergrowth mechanic requires A LOT of creatures and cards that put your library into your graveyard quickly to take advantage of it like Stitcher's Supplier. I may revisit it in the future, but for now Fungal Infection and Vicious Offering have been very good and consistent for me.

Your mana curve is way too high to just have twenty lands for mana, even with The Immortal Sun. Vicious Conquistador, Famished Paladin, Adanto Vanguard, Dusk Legion Zealot and Martyr of Dusk would bring your mana curve way down. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Bishop of Binding, Vanquisher's Banner and Radiant Destiny should also be considered here.
- Cut 4 Epicure of Blood for 4 Conquistador.
- Cut 4 Paladin of the Bloodstained for 4 Martyr of Dusk.
- Cut 4 Vampire Sovereign for 4 Zealot.
- Cut 4 Bishop's Soldier for 4 Vanguard.
- Cut 4 Inspiring Cleric for 2 Mavren Fein, and 1 more Elenda and Legion's Landing.
- Cut 4 Call to the Feast for 2 Radiant Destiny, 1 Banner and 1 more Profane Procession.

If you're going to go Zombies, you need more zombies. This style of play is better suited for Aggro/Midrange play, not Control. Doomed Dissenter can net you two tokens with Open the Graves. Tattered Mummy, Graveyard Marshal, Midnight Reaper and Josu Vess, Lich Knight to name a few other zombie in Standard. Whisper, Blood Liturgist is fine to keep in for his reanimation ability. Severed Strands give you lifegain, but it's minimal at best. I'd go with Vicious Offering since it can handle indestructible creatures. Fungal Infection is a card that I started using and it has been very useful for me. Duress is a better option than Dark Inquiry, is has a much lower CMC and can take care of board wipe cards or counterspells. I'd also looking into a Detection Tower for hexproof creatures so you can target them.
