Captivating Vampire Discussion

I think Feast of Blood would be good here.
I also think 4 Nocturnus is slightly excessive and high on the curve. I would maybe go down 1-2 and add in more Captivating Vampire and other 1-3 drops. Gifted Aetherborn and Vampire Nighthawk come to mind.

YamishiTheWickedOne Thanks again for all of your input. Do you think it would be worth replacing drana and yahenni with Gatekeeper of Malakir AND Captivating Vampire or just commit to one of them? Also, do you see an obvious spot to fit viscera seer into?

No worries, I appreciate any feedback you have. The utility lands are gonna be the last thing I can add, but hopefully we’ll get there haha. I’m probably going to make the infernal grasp switch once it’s available. Do you think having Gatekeeper of Malakir in as a three drop would be more valuable than a lord like Captivating Vampire? It does mean I wouldn’t have to worry about having more removal spells as much.

Your non-creature spells could use fixing. Feast of Blood is bad. Sorcery speed and requiring vampires means you're casting it turn 3 at absolute earliest.
Doom Blade is also outdated. Fatal Push is on the right track here, as is the above advice for utility lands though I'd add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as you're monocolor.
Imperious Sorin is the best card in vampires, period. Should be an automatic 4-of.
Other vampires that are useful here: Captivating Vampire (cut Yahenni and/or Drana, a straightforward lord is more useful), Gatekeeper of Malakir (fantastic value), Viscera Seer (strong contender for the best vampire ever printed), Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (win condition by himself), Champion of Dusk (Ideal turn 3 Sorin target) and Indulgent Aristocrat (ideal partner with Cordial and Bloodghast)
One last thing: if you have the 4 Inquisitions in your maybeboard I'd use the full set of 4. Hand disruption wins games.

Okay well my suggestions are not so crazy...
I think the only thing that needs work is your creatures and getting rid of your artifacts and maybe one land as well.
So you'd have a total of at least 20 creatures. I'm not saying you need 20 or more creatures to be a good deck in legacy.
The only creature I like currently in your deck is Gifted Aetherborn. I like it because it is a good creature for the mana cost.
This is a list of vampire cards for you to consider.

Hey, nice budget version.
Here's two combos that give you repeatable value or can potentially win the game without having to attack with Vamps which in some situations is helpful in Commander.
- Oathsworn Vampire + Cruel Celebrant + Yahenni, Undying Partisan
- Captivating Vampire + Throne of the God-Pharaoh
Oathsworn Vampire + Cruel Celebrant + Yahenni, Undying Partisan is a Vamp combo because of Edgar's eminence to create as many Vamp tokens as mana you have available from repeatedly casting Oathsworn from your graveyard. This combo makes die triggers from Celebrant by sacing Oathsworn which is what lets you cast Oathsworn from your graveyard. Combine these Vamps with Cordial Vampire to make your Vamp army powerful with +1/+1 counters. Combine this combo with Captivating Vampire to gain control of a lot of your opponents creatures.
Bontu's Monument is nonVamp card that can replace Celebrant in the combo and it reduces the cost of Oathsworn to only one black mana. Blood Artist can also replace Celebrant. Viscera Seer is another Vamp sac outlet that could replace Yahenni in the combo.
Throne of the God-Pharaoh combines with Captivating Vampire and other Vamps to drain all your opponents life by tapping Vamps. Captivating can gain control of a creature and that creature can be your own creature repeatedly which means that if opponents don't have creatures to steal then you can continue activating Captivating.
Here's some suggestions of how to improve the manabase on a budget.
- Exotic Orchard --> Guildmages' Forum
- Caves of Koilos --> Scoured Barrens
- Battlefield Forge --> Bloodfell Caves
- Shineshadow Snarl --> Orzhov Basilica
- Foreboding Ruins --> Rakdos Carnarium
- Smoldering Marsh --> Temple of Malice
- Tainted Field --> Temple of Silence
- Tainted Peak --> Terramorphic Expanse
Good luck with your deck.
