You’d still have to shift around the slots so as to not rely too heavily on Death Baron making even a zombie type Hoodfang too hit or miss.

Standard-Bearer is also pretty swingy outside of responding to a wrath or having Carrion Feeder out. I’d prefer cards that can intrinsically respond to interaction or get value for being out. Standard-Bearer is only getting value as a response. Bring a vanilla 3/1 even with flash for three mana 75% of the time isn’t gonna cut it. No deathtouch, no lifelink, not even menace, intimidate. Something. It’s the same problem I have with Bloodcrazed Paladin.

Pill0wDipsauce on Syr Gwyn Super Budget Tribal Extravaganza ($30)

Came by this deck while looking for budget ideas for my own Gwyn deck.

I'd say, leave the deck be if it's already doing alright in your meta and you're having fun with it. There are some things that stand out to me though:

You don't have boardwipes in your deck. These will help a lot in surviving the first 7 turns of the game, something you say you have issues with. Mythos of Snapdax, Divine Reckoning and Single Combat are my suggestions. At the bare minimum, get four boardwipes. You can cut some of your creatures for these. Don't forget about single target removal either, I put some in the suggestions below.

Looking at your mana curve: it's quite low, which is a good thing. This means you can cut down on some of the basic lands and go from 40 to something like 36/37. If you can, replace them with more signets or talismans, but cards like Boros Cluestone, Commander's Sphere and Darksteel Ingot are fine too. Try to go for eight mana sources which are not lands.

When selecting creatures to cut to make room for other cards, decide which cards will have an impact when you play them and which won't. As you play the deck, you'll learn more about cards which work and which don't (that's the fun of deckbuilding). I suspect Rimrock Knight won't have much of an impact (You'd rather have another equipment instead), Crashing Drawbridge can be replaced with an equipment which gives haste. In my own Gwyn deck I got rid of Bloodcrazed Paladin because I held on to it instead of playing it. Ardenvale Tactician doesn't look like it'll do much either. I think you'll be fine with somewhere around 25 creatures to make room for more equipment and removal.

You can ditch a card like Rowan, Fearless Sparkmage as well, you can replace the +1 ability with equipment. Don't play the planeswalker for the ult, as your opponents have four whole turn cycles to find an answer for it.

I've listed some more (budget) suggestions below, you'll figure it out: Evolving Wilds

Terramorphic Expanse

Buried Ruin

Mortuary Mire

Chariot of Victory

Murder

Thalia's Lancers

Mortify

Unlicensed Disintegration

Inquisitor's Flail (use only with first strike/double strike or when you have a way to make your creature indestructible)

Despark

Knights of the Black Rose

Glaring Spotlight (I think it might be a good card as a finisher, but haven't won a game with it yet)

Fireshrieker

Knights' Charge

Sign in Blood

WalkingIllusion on Elenda, the First Vampire

Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are the best removal in the GAME, regardless if you don't get the death trigger with Elenda YOU RUN THESE TWO CARDS IN EVERY DECK THAT IS WHITE!

So when you run black you run multiple tutors otherwise you are playing the color wrong, you have vampiric tutor which im proud of you that you have it in the deck but please consider one to two more tutors Demonic Tutor, Diabolic Intent, Grim Tutor or worse case scenario at least Diabolic Tutor...

You could run more blood artist triggering cards like Falkenrath Noble, Bastion of Remembrance, Vindictive Vampire or Zulaport Cutthroat.

You don't need Exsanguinate or Debt to the Deathless to go infinite as stated above by you and players can respond to the stack if you are playing against good magic players. You could just sac a creature and get a blood artist trigger to go off with sanguine bond/exquisite blood combo then if they respond to the trigger you can just do it again and win; easier and better in EVERY way... those two spells are horrible filler. Bishop of Binding, Pitiless Pontiff, Sorin Markov, Syphon Mind, Go for the Throat, Mortify are cards that I feel like they fall in the same category as being filler.

Other interesting cards you might want to consider. Liliana, Dreadhorde General, Aetherflux Reservoir, Return to Dust, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodcrazed Paladin, Captivating Vampire, Kindred Dominance, Living Death, Phyrexian Reclamation, Generous Gift, and Grand Abolisher.

That's all I got for you on the top of my head, gl on your deck!

Sauluz on Orzhov Vampire Tribal

Alright, so i have some spare time currently and will try to give you some more advice.

Possible Cuts:

Dead Man's Chest - Funny card, but not really on theme with your deck as far as i can see

Path of Bravery - Does to little imo, but i have never seen it in play, so it may overperform

Skymarcher Aspirant - Even if you have ascent, its only a 2/1 flyer for one mana

Paladin of Atonement - Same reasoning as for Path of Bravery

Bloodcrazed Paladin - The fact that it does not have trample makes it a lot worse than one might think

Queen's Commission - Not a bad card, but one of the weaker ones imo

Lands:

Exchange Forsaken Sanctuary with Orzhov Basilica Exchange a Plains with Castle Ardenvale If you can, insert more dual lands that can enter the battlefield untapped, e.g. Caves of Koilos

Suggestions

I think you are running too few sacrifice outlets, especially since you are a vampire tribal and need creatures to die for your commander. You already have Yahenni, Undying Partisan, but there are also Viscera Seer, Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, Altar of Dementia, Blood Bairn, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Indulgent Aristocrat, Voldaren Pariah  Flip and Bloodthrone Vampire (No particular oder, but free sac outlets like Viscera Seer are great!)

Now that stuff is dying, Butcher of Malakir and Dictate of Erebos are really great.

Outline

I really like your deck idea and think that you already are on a great way. If i were you i would abondon the life gain theme and focus more on being an aristocrat deck since your commander heavily suggest you to do so (and also because it is really powerful), but i guess lifegain is more flavourfull with Vampires :)

Good luck with your deck!

Love the deck a ton!

Creature suggestions: Ashenmoor Liege - Sort of tribal card, really powerful

Bloodcrazed Paladin - Not sure how good it is but in theory, after a large boardwipe...

Haakon, Stromgald Scourge + Dauntless Bodyguard - Nasty combo once it starts. Depends on your playstyle.

If I had anything to suggest, it is that there is maybe not enough removal. So here as a few suggestions that I think you would find useful.

Kindred Dominance - great boardwipe option in tribal. Boros Charm/Rakdos Charm these have plenty of utility since they have multiple options. Boros Charm is prtection from boardwipe and a finisher with the double strike mode. Rakdos Charm works against graveyard decks, destroys a problematic artifact, or punishes go wide decks. Sword of Sinew and Steel - All around great card but also serves as recurring removal!

Other: Buried Ruin - Utility land, gets your artifacts that have been destroyed. Open the Armory - functions as any of your equipment but is flexible ~ you can tutor for lands if you get Sword of the Animist or tutor for protection Swiftfoot Boots or even your removal equipment Argentum Armor.

I hope you found these suggestions insightful and helpful! +1

Bloodline Keeper  Flip is a card I love for every vampire deck and this one would do nicely for both aspects, making the tokens could be a great use of the sacrifice mechanic and after flipping him would buff all the vampires you control.

Other wise Blood Artist is made for this deck with Bloodcrazed Paladin being good for getting buffed from the sacrifice. Bloodghast would be a great card to get a recursion monster that could continuously be sacrificed.
