Creature — Vampire Warrior Ally
Whenever you gain life, each opponent loses 1 life.

They are considerations of course. However a lot of them require me to build too linear like with adding Epicure of Blood and Cliffhaven Vampire. They’re absolutely great cards and if I wasn’t trying to be more adaptive in my deck building style and wanted to fine point the lifegain/loss strategy I’d absolutely add them. Same goes for Oloro, Ageless Ascetic lovely card but I don’t want to focus exclusively on lifegain/loss strategy. I know most people say to focus exclusively on a specific strategy but that’s just not my play style anymore. I like versatility and surprise! Haha
Lich's Mastery and Drogskol Reaver are great cards and easy wins. But I just don’t like playing like that with my friends so I stay away from those sort of things. I have added Peer into the Abyss and Necrologia as quick wins but more fair in my opinion.
Bone Miser and Psychosis Crawler are in my consideration pile in my deck box actually haha so you’re right on the money there! I’m also considering Shabraz, the Skyshark Flip. I think I may be adding Sakashima the Impostor to my ninja deck now that you mention it.
Shadow of the Grave is a lovely card. I just always cut it at the final round of cuts for some reason. It’s in my maybe pile in my deck box though for sure. I still have to play test and work out the kinks of gameplay. So it may still make the cut in the end.
Bag of Holding would be lovely if it weren’t so easily destroyed. It’s also counterintuitive to the reanimator subtheme I have going in the deck.
Thank you so much for all your suggestions! It definitely reinforced some of my considerations :)

Hi Boki92! I personally wouldn't take this deck to a more casual setting, so it would be a good call removing some of those things. If you wanted to play a version of this by taking out some on the instant win combo's, you can lean more into the lifegain aspect and drain your opponent's like that. Cards like Cliffhaven Vampire and Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose can help achieve that goal. Some more reanimation cards could also benefit it, maybe adding Sun Titan back in to recur low cmc cards. If countering spells is frowned upon, you can add more creature/artifact/enchantment removal if you want to keep the control aspect. You can definitely play around with the list by taking out the cards your group finds problematic and see what cards you like as replacements.

it's cool in theory, but in practice.. i run Orzhov Bleed. without a creature presence, there was no blocking against attackers. that might not seem like an issue, but lifelink + Cliffhaven Vampire was throttling your deck. as well, there wasn't enough targeted removal. Shimian Specter, Bitter Ordeal, Skirk Ridge Exhumer would all help this issue. having creature generation, attackers that demand an answer, and something that violently compliments Damnation will help

Guardian of the Guildpact, Soulsworn Jury, Stoic Ephemera; good defensive creatures that are still tribal that could be included. i'm sure there's a spirit creature token generator fits the color restrictions in here... the only one i know of is Honden of Life's Web, but that's green. while there is lots of cheap creatures to keep up the aggression early to mid game, i don't see anything for the big win. just about any deck (except shield-burn for an obvious reason) will have something to force the gate open. for example, i have a decent orzhov (BW) passive bleed deck with lots of cheap cast cards, but use Debt to the Deathless as a stand-alone or Cliffhaven Vampires + Ready / Willing to turn the game violently in my favor. doesn't have to be big, flashy, or expensive, but something that says "deal with it or you lose"
i would definitely recommend, however, putting in a couple Leonin Sun Standards in for the group boost; it's cheap, it's effect is decent, and demands an answer

I have a very similar deck that I'm still working on, but I really like Drana's Emissary . I also have Pulse Tracker in mine which is nice because it deals one damage to all players when it attacks which can trigger cards like Exquisite Blood and Cliffhaven Vampire . I might replace vampire cutthroat with ally or a card like pulse tracker. also trespassers curse could use another copy. I also agree with Elmoisamac about run-in x4 of good allies.

DemonDragonJ Reducing confusion probably wasn't the only reason it was changed, but I'm sure it factored into the decision.
I could understand a creature version of Exquisite Blood , but I don't expect it to show up regularly. I count eight cards with a variant of the SB effect: Cliffhaven Vampire , Defiant Bloodlord , Dina, Soul Steeper , Epicure of Blood , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanguine Bond , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Vizkopa Guildmage . A new EB goes infinite with all of these, with incredible redundancy.
How would you stat a creature version out? What would you expect its mana value and P/T to be?
