Any feedback on the others? Blade of the Bloodchief is another "when a creature dies" effect, even if it's not on a vampire.

Ha nice name! I really dig the low budget on this, especially since the deck looks strong even with the low cost. You might consider giving these cards a try: Snake Umbra , Keen Sense , Perilous Forays , Fallen Ideal , Sadistic Glee , Eternal Thirst , Blade of the Bloodchief

Sword of Truth and Justice : I’m not gonna lie, I’m super disappointed with the new swords. The old ones justified their costs. It’s a good voltron card the promotes counters. Too high of a cost, 2 color protection doesn’t do much in a 4 way game, a single +1 counted only if the damage(player-only) lands, and proliferate isn’t ideal when there’s usually only 1-2 creatures on board with counters.

Better(discounting broken aspects): whenever equipped creature attacks/blocks give it 1-2 +1 counter(s), then return target permanent to its owners hand... or some shit.

Ring of Xathrid and Ring of Kalonia are almost always better for this deck in my opinion. They actually guarantee +1 counters landing. RoX recently left the deck because paying an additional 2 for regen is garbage.

Blade of the Bloodchief was a maybe for awhile. I avoid equipment because of Collector Ouphe . This is another one of those cards that acquiring counters is too specific and doesn’t work with the vampire deal.

Thanks for the suggestions, I’ll check your shit out dœg

fair enough. only other suggestion I had was Sword of Truth and Justice as anti-bounce and prolifferate. The cost being the problem, makes it seem kinda... less than ideal?

for boost that's cheap, Blade of the Bloodchief and Ring of Xathrid are good alternitives. I have a similar voltron deck if you wanted to compare / contrast - This grave was made for Walkin'

Lets look at what we should be adding,

Bontu the Glorified , Bontu's Monument , Malevolent Awakening

I'd remove Revel in Riches . You really do want to be able to play that at flash speed to get your value from it.

Phyrexian Arena There is better card draw you can get.

Ghostly Prison With death triggers there are ways to remove your opponents creatures rather then worry about making them pay 2 mana per to attack.

Anointed Procession you can do without. Creatures that die and create tokens will create double the tokens from Teysa Karlov so she herself is like Anointed Procession .

I'd lose the four "Sorcery" cards you have. If anything I'd replace Black Sun's Zenith with Toxic Deluge .

Sword of the Animist . Only good if you are attacking a lot.

Skullclamp That one can go either way. I opted to remove it from my build. I found better options.

Blade of the Bloodchief

Thrilling Encore If done right you won't need your opponents creatures.

Doomblade and Fatal Push Focus on using Dictate of Erebos , Grave Pact
