Tokens of Currency
Blood artist + Tokens + Cartel Aristocrat = Nice
Desecration Demon + Blood Artist = Nice
Tokens + vault of the archangel = Nice
doomed traveler + lingering souls + sorin, lord of innistrad = tokens
Orzhov charm + Doomed traveler = more tokens ( if I don't need the removal)
Vamphawk is there for defence and Obzedat is there for finishing and giggling at standstills.
desecration demon is kind of out of theme for your deck, and 3x obzedat is one too many. also nighthawk seems better in the sideboard for these decks. Consider moving those and putting in a zombie package; gravecrawler and geralf's messenger can turn up the volume, especially when you get into sacrifice/replay/sacrifice loops with cartel aristocrat.

But Desecration demon and Blood artist fit so well together. (Punishing for the sac) 3x Obzedats is there because it's a great removal target, and I want to be able to trade with the opponent. However, Gravecrawler and geralfs seems like a good idea. I'll look into it. Thanks!

obzedat's great but 3x means you'll most likely have one sittign in your hand at some point.

Gravecrawlers and messengers give you the option to sac and punish your opponent for you sacing. It's great. I ran a deck similar to this that had an infinite loop.rooftop storm + blood artist + gravcrawler + sacing to aristocrat.

And I agree, 3 ghost dads is one too many. It's a finisher that's impervious to sorcery speed removal. If you're worried about instant speed, you can always run Cloudshift, or, better yet, Restoration Angel

@ChadMalto: I like the idea behind that one, even it it's maybe mostly casual? If you could post a decklist I would very much appreciate it. Cheers!

Ahh. Ghost dad is not only a finisher, but also a great was to recover from aggro or drain vs. Control.

Nah, It was competitive and did really well. Let me make one, then I'll post it!

I been trying to get back into tournaments and stuff and wanted to build and orzhov deck with extort but the one i tried meeh didn't convince me. This one seem like cheap to make, i will probably change 2 obzedats for 2 blood barons of vizcopa because well i just have 1 obzedat, which i got on dragon maze pre release and they are expensive. seems like a good deck
