This is an interesting list. It reminds me of some of my older Cartel Aristocrat / Mortician Beetle / Pawn of Ulamog lists.

Depending on how competitive you want to be there are a few options, and a few powerful directions. Cabal Therapist is notable in being powerful hand disruption- other aristocrats cover various options, from the venerable flying brick Falkenrath Aristocrat to my pet pick Spawning Pit . Indulgent Aristocrat and vampire/human dual tribal is a fairly strong choice.

Powerful card advantage options are out there in Priest of Forgotten Gods / Dark Prophecy // Grim Haruspex / Midnight Reaper even to the point of enabling Zombie Infestation storm wins.

For a more aggressive gameplan hand disruption, even the humble Duress will offer a lot- dodging board wipes is valuable. Plan your sideboard too- it will help a lot to know that you have a plan for burn or artifacts, almost no matter what it is. Just keep an eye on your curve and remember the number of modern games being decided in turns 1-4 by aggro and combo lists.

Thanks for the suggestions. Metallic Mimic has been sitting in my awful wizards deck for months now, I never thought of it going in here, but it really helps. Especially with the majority of the creature cards being wizards, same goes for Vindictive Lich , so thank you!

Now that I think about it, Yahenni, Undying Partisan really is a cheaper, and to some extent, better version of Grimgrin, Corpse-Born , so that definitely got put in. I would be hesitant to put in Falkenrath Aristocrat due to my CMC being quite high already (I know Razaketh, the Foulblooded has a high CMC, but he tutors and I cracked him while opening a pack so I feel obligated to use him! Shhhh!) And I would love to put Yawgmoth, Thran Physician but for now I'll leave him out, though I will probably always contemplate it!

Both Midnight Reaper and Grim Haruspex work better than River Kelpie for death/ETB based draw.

I feel like if I run Jokulhaups my playgroup will disown me. At some point Last One Standing will probably replace Killing Wave .

Thanks again for the suggestions, I really appreciate the feedback, and I definitely up-voted your Marchesa deck!

Metallic Mimic and Sage of Fables - A: They make Marchesa enter with a counter so she's immediately protected and B: You can abuse ETB/Death triggers every turn instead of once per round (i.e. Vindictive Lich or Gray Merchant over and over)

Yahenni, Undying Partisan and Falkenrath Aristocrat are both great free sac outlets here that can protect themselves and have haste so they get a +1+1 counter the turn they enter. Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is another amazing sac outlet here assuming he's in your budget.

Midnight Reaper and Grim Haruspex are amazing draw engines in Marchesa.

Last One Standing and Jokulhaups are both really good boardwipes here as well.

Yeah no problem at all! Kalitas is quite expensive for a budget version but is a good addition nonetheless. Viscera Seer is another good sac outlet. Vile Rebirth is also quite better than Shamble Back not to mention it's instant speed and not a sorcery which personally, in decks like this I try to avoid them as much as I can. You can also find alternative budget removal that can be proven to be just as good Ultimate Price , Go for the Throat , Terminate and Dismember are good candidates. I believe with a full playset of Priest of the Forgotten Gods and Falkenrath Aristocrat this deck has already received a major upgrade! Very cool deck! Keep it up!

Unfortunately I am restricted by a budget. I use all of my “good” RB lands for my Hellbent on Reanimation legacy deck since it’s the one I play most often. So I am stuck with Cinder Barrens .

I really want to get some Priest of the Forgotten Gods for the deck. I’ve considered Judith, the Scourge Diva and Cruel Celebrant but initially dismissed the life drain effect since I like be more aggressive with cards like Falkenrath Aristocrat . I’ll definitely look into getting a few copies of them both.

I thought about using Fatal Push , but for my playgroup meta Tragic Slip is going to more effective against my groups Dino and indestructible focused decks. Spark Harvest replaced Bone Splinters since my playgroup uses a lot of planeswalkers. Dreadbore could be good so I’ll keep an eye out for those as well. My main goal is to get two more copies of Falkenrath Aristocrat and focus on sacrificing the humans like Doomed Traveler and Hunted Witness . Seraph of the Scales is awesome, but is also out of my budget. I like having Martyr of Dusk just in case my opponent has a way around Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet ’s zombie engine and it’s saved me a few times. Same with Shamble Back but I am looking for a better alternative since I don’t always have a creature ready to exile for it.

Thank you for the recommendations!

Last One Standing , Vindictive Lich , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Falkenrath Aristocrat , Diabolic Intent , and Sneak Attack . I'd also find room for Talisman of Indulgence and your other 2 Signets.

Legion Loyalist is also great here when you go the aggro route.

Haste Enablers: Ogre Battledriver or Urabrask the Hidden over Exava... more often than not the creature attacked to get that counter and the haste is too late.

Boardwipes: Jokulhaups (this is the finisher you want) and Last One Standing (gets under Gaddock Teeg and past Void Winnower). No Apocalypse, that's a nonbo here.

Misc: Diabolic Intent , Falkenrath Aristocrat , Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , and Sneak Attack .

Your manabase looks fine.

I've played a bunch of vamp variants- the battle is that mardu vamps (which is basically all B/R vamps decks that aren't secretly just a Stromkirk Noble and burn list, because the white vamps are really, really good) has several different ways it can go.

You can build around Stromkirk Captain in a go-wide strategy in which case maindeck Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and Legion Lieutenant , or around Blood Artist , Cartel Aristocrat and Falkenrath Aristocrat in a sacrifice strategy, or around discard outlets with Stromkirk Condemned , Falkenrath Gorger , Olivia, Mobilized for War , or around trading efficiently with Gifted Aetherborn , Stromkirk Captain and Vampire Nighthawk , or dip more heavily into spells, or lifelinker spam to land Blood Baron of Vizkopa . You can also split the difference between any of these plans, because there are cards to bridge basically any strategies.

Vamps is incredibly versatile, with a big pool of synergies to draw from. You can stretch from lurn-like aggro all the way to blood-baron control. So play with the tools, target a section of the game you want to win in and build to that. And don't be scared to switch it up.

The reason to go to mardu is the options it gives you (and bloodghast triggers)- not just in the sideboard, but throughout the deckbuilding process. You can absolutely bring a different vamps deck each friday, and your opponents will misplay because they were expecting what you've done before. That is incredibly strong.
