theamazingwally I kind of forgot about it, but there was a vampire precon deck when Zendikar released in 2010. You should look it up. It was tournament ready right out of the box and was quite good. One key card in the deck was Blade of the Bloodchief .

I assume you are playing all the swords for flavour and I'm fine with that. Some of them really depend on your meta.

Protecting your Voltron commander is so important but you can't use shroud because of how equip works and it limits your options.

If there is deathtouch in your meta a Mirror Shield would be a good extra Hexproof card. Blade of the Bloodchief is a good card for increasing value even if it isn't a vamp. You don't even have to kill the creature.

While the apparent CMC is low, if you have to pay the equip costs, that can be a pain point. Since you are avoiding mana rocks if possible, may I suggest Curse of Opulence . Leads to some fun politics sometimes and I find it can simple take some aggro of you and onto the person you don't like. That would be the person with the deck that makes you sacrifice things.

I agree on the Metal Worker. It draws aggro like mad and you are probably better off without it. I would kill you immediately unless I knew you didn't have a combo in your deck. Sigarda's Aid is an amazing card for equipment decks.

I'd probably cut Sculpting Steel unless you have alot of good artifacts from other people. Explorer's Scope is unlikely to hit anything. Goblin Gaveleer is likely going to die on the first attack.

I would still suggest Fervent Champion . You probably in practice need more cheap creatures to put your equipment on then you need multiple equipments because equipments tend to stick around. Especially if you want to ramp using these cheap creatures.

Good luck.

Ouroboros_47 I'm trying to keep this deck vampire tribal. I have been thinking about adding some Sengir Autocrat to get some sacrificial creatures out there. After Elenda, the Dusk Rose gets some counters, especially with the help of Blade of the Bloodchief , I know longer need to worry about having creatures to sack, Elanda will give me plenty.
