Silverdrake that’s a good idea. My meta, as I’ve mentioned, is heavy in the Tron, Storm, and Infect meta. That’s why I had more Dismember in the sideboard. I’ll take your suggestions though and try a copy of Collective Brutality! Thanks again for the comment and upvote!

First off, I believe you as far as the artwork on Inquisition of Kozilek. I thought, though, that Kalitas, in Oath of the Gatewatch, was the leader of a group of vampires attacking the other vampire tribes and convincing them to join the Eldrazi. That’s why he’s a “traitor”. So that’s why I considered Inquisition of Kozilek to be “Inquisition of Kalitas” by extension. But you’re right, I think it’s just a regular vampire. So, thanks for the heads up!
For Collective Brutality, I agree that it is a bomb of a card. I haven’t had the chance to use it yet. What would you suggest taking out for it? Thanks again for the suggestion!

Thanks for the upvote on my mono black vampires build! I also saw you had mono black zombies. It’s good to see other people pilot non meta builds! Best of luck to you!

Thank again for the comment and upvote on my mono black vampires deck! Let me know if I can help with any of the other choices. The discussion section of the build discusses reasons for the cards selected.

Boyson67 thank you for the upvote and comment! I’ll do my best to explain the reason. I archived some of the past comments because they didn’t represent what the build had become.
First off, Mutavault is so good in the combo or control match-ups where we are top decking. It’s nice to basically have another 2/2 vampire for free almost. Sometimes that extra few points of damage win the game.
For Drana, Liberator of Malakir, she is a great vampire creature card. She belongs in a go wide strategy, like tokens where you would get serious value from her ability. I’m this build, the win-con is Vampire Nocturnus with a black card on top of the library. This deck does its best to maximize that possibility. This provides immediate value, whereas Drana needs to wait a turn. Since this is midrange/aggro, Drana doesn’t fit super well. Our 3-drop spot is mainly reserved for 1 of 2 scenarios: Gatekeeper of Malakir with kicker, or a variable 2-drop with a hand destruction played previously to ensure our creature stays out on field (looking at you, various counterspells and removal!).
For Vampire Lacerator, check out the links I have in my deck description under “influences”. I have a source from Tom Ross where he explains reasons to play vampires, ie: Vampire Nocturnus. Vampire Lacerator does add aggro pressure, but we are midrange. We want a turn 1 hand discard, turn 2 Gifted Aetherborn or Stromkirk Condemned. The life loss isn’t terrible, but you can’t compare Vampire Lacerator to Goblin Guide, which I hear a ton. They play differently, and Vampire Lacerator doesn’t help the deck ensure Vampire Nocturnus goes off every turn. That’s why Viscera Seer and all the hand destruction and removal are our 1-drop spots.
I hope that all makes sense! Let me know if I can expound on anything! Thanks again for your support!
