So the kiki jiki pile is Karmic Guide+Viscera Seer reanimate and sac hulk grab kiki, copy guide, sac hulk, get village bell ringer gg. It only works in 4 or 5 color lists, but it is probably the best overall hulk pile since that same exact pile forms a perfect buried alive+reanimate pile and also does kiki combo and splinter twin combo easily. It even does easy revillark loops. That will be the combo deck I am building next. I will make alara baby tier 1

Wooo, finally responding to comments (I'm so slack).
Lilbrudder: Cheers! And congrasts on your deck. You've become the archetype guy, that's pretty rad.
Daedalus19876: Technically I do Taekwondo, not Karate. But tehy're pretty similar in a lot of respects. But thank you :D and I'm coming up to three and a half years of it now (though it feels like longer as everything hurts, all the time :P)
n0bunga: Thank you! how long have you been doing archery for? It seem slike a lot of fun, my girlfriend and I have been meaning to check it out.
Also, seriously - unbanning Protean Hulk seems just silly. Like Flash hulk into Karmic Guide + Viscera Seer into Saffi Eriksdotter + Zulaport Cutthroat silly. Bummer about Leo though. I guess there were enough people complaining about it.
Eiti3: Do you still have your Leo list? I'd be interested to see how you adapt it.

Straight up replacing Boonweaver, Hulk is a perfect fit. It doesn't need much work around except for small interactions that might be useful in niche scenarios (such as fetching Grand Abolisher, a sac outlet via Viscera Seer / Carrion Feeder, and Heliod's Pilgrim fetching Animate Dead; this play can work around interaction completely but costs an additional 1B to run, and in personal preference, Heliod's Pilgrim isn't justifiable in this list)
As for the name, if I recall correctly, there was a list called KaraHulk on the 1v1 French Commander listings over at MTGTop8.com

Looks like you have a lot going on, friend.
I think the Vampire theme is always flavorful, and with proper Lords, they can get out of hand fast. However, it doesn't really look like you're taking that route. I also think your control aspect is an interesting one, because your creatures don't seem to take advantage of the incredibly strong hand disruption you have quite as much as something like U/B Faeries would. It looks like you're got two strong halves to two very different decks put together. I can imagine it's powerful in your group, but if what your title "Competitive Vampire" is alluding to is correct, and you want to start heading to FNMs with it, I have a few recommendations.It seems you really want to go with the Vampire tribal. I'd invest in your Lords then: Bloodline Keeper, Vampire Nocturnus, and find ways to get Vampires out fast with Aether Vial, Cavern of Souls, Mutavault, ect. and nix a few of the hand disruption.So if you're going more Strong Vampire route, I can't suggest Blood Artist enough man. Gets you the Highborn effect without tapping out your mana. Add Viscera Seer and you're golden. This route is more of an Aristocrats route, but I think you'll be disappointed to know that the best combo for that really doesn't involve many other vampires, but instead involves cards like Lingering Souls and Sram's Expertise which breaks your flavorful synergy. However, MTGoldfish did this kind of thing in the budget Magic: https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-72-26-tix-modern-rally-vampires
The other route would be hand control, which is just better done with U/B Faeries or 8Rack.All in all, your deck looks fun! I'd love to play it, but if you're relaly looking at something competitive, you may find you need to streamline it a bit. Oh, and add a Sideboard, never know what you'll need that isn't in your 60!

I built a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck myself, some cards that provided insane value were Fecundity and Fling. also yahenni really isn't as good as it seems, the deck likes to sac its own stuff and yahenni profits off opponents creatures dying, I would suggest replacing it with Viscera Seer it sets up your draws and is a free sac outlet. also Goblin Bombardment is awesome

I'm having Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Viscera Seer and Winding Constrictor in play. I'm saccing the Constrictor to the Seer to Scry 1. Meren's Ability triggers because of a dying creature.But would Winding Constrictor's Ability Trigger too, giving me 2 instead of 1 Exp. Counter?
I would say 'no', since it already has left the battlefield. Am I wrong about this? Is this probably a case of rule 603.6d?

@UnleashedHavok, thanks for checking out the deck!
Yeah, it's my flagship EDH deck and doesn't really have a budget; it's not quite balls-to-the-wall competitive though, I've got Breya Combo for that.
Thing about cards like Serra Ascendant and, say, Felidar Sovereign is that they get really old really fast - and most experienced playgroups have already seen enough of those lol. It's the same reason I am only running Darkest Hour in the sideboard against turbo Spikes - it leads to games ending abruptly and just isn't that much fun.
On the other hand, lifegain is a secondary quality of this deck, it just happens to get arbitrarily large amounts of life sometimes incidentally but it's not its main game plan - thus I try to avoid playing cards that rely on lifegain to pay-off.
Ayli is sweet and I definitely considered her. If her first ability didn't have the 1 mana cost, it would have been a 100% auto include; as is, I have cheaper options for sac outlets in Cartel Aristocrat and Viscera Seer and the like. If you're trying to build a Teysa with more of a lifegain focus (with fat Karlov or Aetherflux Reservoir) then Ayli is awesome.
