I love Athreos and am excited to see a build around him. My thoughts would be that Land Tax is probably not going to net much value in a deck with 40 lands. And your creature count may be low to make good use from Athreos.

Question, if you have Vampiric Tutor in hand, what do you tutor for? I might suggest exploiting Exquisite Blood with Sanguine Bond and Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose. Torment of Hailfire would do work in a deck like this.

I'm gonna put down a wall of text, so apologies in advance. Personally, I love Athreos, I run him in a commander deck myself. He relies a lot on draining your opponents through the attrition of your own creatures, as more often then not he is very hard to get rid of. Some more removal will help, but look at things like Abyssal Gatekeeper, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, since even if you sac them to their own effect, there is a good chance of sending them back to your hand. Some wider discard effects such as Dark Deal can help, even though they're not attached to creatures being able to drop one in a large game with Waste Not out can net you a lot of benefits. Throwing in a few just good things like Rise of the Dark Realms, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, all synergize with your deck, and can usually punish your opponents. Bone Miser is just another copy of Waste Not, The Haunt of Hightower seems to be on theme and I'd definitely bump up your mana rock number. In terms of a combo win, Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood just need a single loss of life somewhere, while Mindcrank/Bloodchief Ascension function well independently within your deck as well as combo off together. I have no idea what your budget is but I hope this helps.

Thank you genesiseffect! I was going for budget in mind, as I would have probably just added an Exquisite Blood or 2 by now, but I didn’t really want to go with that combo anyways. Good call on Karn and Rogue’s Passage. I think with a few more Vitos and maybe some tutors it will be a little more focused. I’ve been contemplating splashing white but not sure.

Hate that Exquisite Blood is so $$$ but I like this build. Considering taking my Vito casual deck and making it edh, I’ve been inspired. No Sanguine Bond? +1

I’m adding Exquisite Blood. Card is in the mail. Not sure what to take out. Might at Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite.

OK here are some cards to look at based on what you like:

Quag Vampires, Vampire of the Dire Moon, Kalastria Highborn, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodthirsty Aerialist

Not sure what your budget is, but Yawgmoth, Thran Physician always goes well in vampire decks since +1/+1 counters are always a thing. You can pair that with Spread the Sickness or Grim Affliction.

Additionally, Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood form a pretty nice combo in lifelink decks.

Also, Sol Ring is not legal in anything but commander. Dark Ritual is only legal in vintage, legacy, commander (not modern or standard). If this is just to play casually, that won't matter. I just tend to build format legal decks just incase lol.

Things I like


Probably not...

I've played a small set of games with the deck now. It had impact on the game. Majority of creatures cast in the deck didn't feel of consequence when standing alone. I'm investigating more ways to gain life but also add "target player gains life" to abuse Tainted Remedy against non-life gain decks that just ignore it when it hits the field. Spells like Swords to Plowshares.
