I would play Vicious Conquistador instead of Bloodhall Ooze if you want a 1 mana creature. I understand wanting to play as many low cost creatures to get the deck going but it doesn't synergize with the deck at all. Radiant Epicure has too little impact for 5 mana and the same is true for Astarion imo. Blood Tribute is pretty bad imo super situational and might be completely useless. Patriarch's Bidding is really good and can straight up safe your ass after a boardclear.

Your generally not so much concerned with protecting a single creature but your whole board in this deck so I wouldn't play cards like Beaming Defiance or or Feat of Resistance. Boros Charm is pretty good and preserving your boardstate. I would also cut Bedevil, Hero's Downfall and Poison the Cup and replace them with Vindicate Anguished Unmaking and Swords to Plowshares they are much better spells in general

Thanks CommanderNeyo, I'll have to find a trade for the Fiery Emancipation since I don't end up having one of those yet. I was tempted to use Boros Charm since I've had some great use out of it in my Gisela deck. I'll look through some cards and fine tune this a bit.

I would highly recommend adding Fiery Emancipation, since triple damage is dope sauce. Also, Boros Charm is a great card, and lets you combo out if you have a damage doubler and a card like Boros Reckoner out.

My first deck was built around Boros Reckoner, and used cards like Dictate of the Twin Gods, Blasphemous Act, and Boros Charm, so I love this!

Edited a bit.

Removed Boros Charm and Valorous Stance added some Chained to the Rocks which makes me wonder If I should try to get more dual-lands so I can get more mountains.

Also reduced some artifacts amounts with these Open the Armory.

Got Basic Lands since Base Camp is slow and not that great to a 2-color deck.

^ i’d second Boros Charm being a good card here. I’d probably ditch Paladin Class to make room for it

JordoSmith14 - I thought of this deck again recently when I was thinking of of stuff for one of my decks. Boros Charm might be right up your alley as a good utility card being able to hit the opponent for 4 damage, save your entire army from a boardwipe, or provide a knock out punch by giving doublestrike to a single creature. Few things are worse than pumping up your creatures and being a single move from victory than being hit with something like Wrath of God and losing everything.

I have a friend that ran Markov who had a similar problem. Due to the nature of the deck you drop all of your creatures and kill one player. His solution was to transition to a mid-range strategy. Simply put he would cast early game threats to put pressure on other players, but they didn't win him the game or kill a player, so that he could win the game on later turns. Since I don't know how you are losing I'll put forward a few ways players stop Markov decks and how to counter those strategies.

First, are players killing you when all of you creatures are tapped down? Keep some of your creatures back as blockers, this is obvious and the strategy goes against how agro players operate in most formats but is needed in multiplayer environments. Along the same lines are white spells that can untap all of your creatures on other players turns like Battle Cry and Call to Glory leading to fun combat tricks to kill off important creatures and more importantly save your life total.

Second, are players board wiping constantly to knock down your board state? This was the problem my friend had and after two board wipes he would be out of cards in hand with no board state top decking hoping for some sort of Windfall. There are a few ways to counter this which can be focused on individually or can be mixed for similar results. Making it so your creatures don't die is one method featuring spells like Boros Charm and Teferi's Protection. Another is mass reanimation spells like Faith's Reward, Patriarch's Bidding and Living Death. Finally are flexible spells that essentially replace the creatures you lost. Those being Reprocess, Plumb the Forbidden or Village Rites.

Third, playing politics. Like you said there is not much stopping the rest of the table from ganging up on you, you can however influence other players decisions based on how you play and how others at your table play as well. Hold back threats, it's tempting to dump your hand and start swinging but as you mentioned this makes you a huge target. Instead put down a Coat of Arms or another value spell and hold the rest of your mana open for interaction, which leads to my next point interaction. You have some of the best removal spells in the game in your colors like Fracture,Dreadbore, Anguished Unmaking and Swords to Plowshares all of which are great bargaining chips to use as favors for other players, as well as being useful to take care of things causing problems for you. Last of all are less card choices but more how you address the table, having a good pokerface helps a lot with this. At the start of the game address the commanders others are playing and talk to the group about the powerful synergies they employ. Whenever an important combo or synergy price is played by an opponent point it out to the other players and if it's very strong stress it needs to be dealt with, which may incline the other players to use spells on it, reducing what they can use against you and making it so you don't have to deal with the problem. When a Tutor is cast discuss what spell the player could be gettng, this will draw attention to them and away from you. Finally when players address your board shift focus away from it, point out another player with the winning board state or the deck that won the last game. Downplay that you are a threat until you are ready to win the game. Keep in mind you are still an agro deck, so you can always lean into dumping your hand to kill a player fast if the game match up calls for it.

This final section is just general deck construction. Vampire selection: make sure you vampires are doing more that entering the battlefield to create an extra Vampire through eminence. Things like Blood Artist and Viscera Seer give value when opponents interact with the board and thing like Twilight Prophet draws cards. There are also the vampire lords that buff all of your vampires and tokens. Things that have synergy with your strategy are good includes too like Sanguine Bond, Impact Tremors or Goblin Bombardment and go a long way. Finally is "normal" card advantage that doesn't rely on you having vampires out and will shine in the early game as well as add value late game, Greed, Phyrexian Arena and Wheel of Misfortune.

I hope some of my thoughts help you work out a good game plan.
