I count 9 sources of card draw; 9 feels too low, especially with so few lands. I would recommend either adding just one more source of solid draw power--might I suggest Bolas's Citadel?

I also only see like 3 interaction pieces... that's just not enough in today's EDH environment! You're gonna want ways to consistently deal with scary threats on opponents' boards, but fortunately black/white is the literally the best color combo for removal. You could run Swords to Plowshares, Feed the Swarm, Reliquary Monk, Seize the Soul, Rite of Oblivion, Damn, Tragic Arrogance... the list goes on.

So I would definitely add the new spells: Infernal Grasp Feed the Swarm and Murderous Rider. I still personally like Final Parting and Kokusho, the Evening Star a lot here. Altar of Dementia could be okay if you have one. Malakir Mire and maybe Sword of the Animist

Hey, good start and budget Vampire version of Olivia.

Consider getting the Crimson Vow Vampiric Bloodline Commander precon? The precon would be a fine start at upgrading your Vampires and has many staple cards for Commander such as Command Tower and Arcane Signet. What all precons lack however is a good basic casual Commander deck structure to start a deck with:

Not all areas of a deck are covered in this structure example just the basics and of course these numbers can change as you're deck building. Some cards can cover many areas which is what you really want with cards you choose to play especially in this case Vampires.

Vampire upgrades in Vampiric Bloodline: Patron of the Vein, Necropolis Regent, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Champion of Dusk, Butcher of Malakir, Crossway Troublemakers, Stromkirk Captain, Sanctum Seeker, Cordial Vampire, Rakish Heir, Indulgent Aristocrat, Malakir Bloodwitch, Bloodtracker, Vampire Nighthawk, Falkenrath Noble, Blood Artist.

Other good nonVampire cards in Vampiric Bloodline: Sol Ring, Arcane Signet, Command Tower, Olivia's Wrath, Vandalblast, Stensia Masquerade, Swiftfoot Boots, Rakdos Signet, Blasphemous Act, Feed the Swarm, Rakdos Charm, Night's Whisper, Commander's Sphere, Tainted Peak, Unclaimed Territory, Exotic Orchard, Path of Ancestry, Smoldering Marsh, Foreboding Ruins, Shadowblood Ridge, Temple of Malice.

Of course you don't have to get the precon, but in doing so you get a lot of cards at one time. I listed many cards that would be upgrades to pick and choose from if you would rather do that, if at all. If interested I offer more advice in another comment.

Good luck with your deck.

Outside of Feed the Swarm, the only card that can do it for non-creature enchantments in black is Quagmire Druid, but it needs green to do it.

I guess after everything blue and green have gotten, it was going to spill over sooner or later, but it makes me sad to see so much bleeding of identity between colors.

Hi there,

I like your deck but there's a few flaws in there that will really bite you in the ass unless you have ways to deal with them. This deck can be halted way too easily by someone playing enchantments. In its current configuration, the deck will not be able to cope with anything like Ghostly Prison, Sphere of Safety, Propaganda, Pyrohemia, Rest in Peace or Leyline of the Void. The same goes for some inhibiting artifacts. You need some counter- or removal options in order to deal with these.

Aside from adding say 4-5 Counterspell-like cards, maybe consider Cyclonic Rift, Feed the Swarm, Mire in Misery and Nevinyrral's Disk.

Also, the deck could do with some more draw. Options that come to mind are Cryptbreaker, Graveborn Muse, Fact or Fiction, Ponder/Preordain, Phyrexian Arena/Underworld Connections.

Have fun brewing.

Not terribly much

Dockside Extortionist - is almost a must in any deck running red thing is absolutely the best red card printed in the last 5 years

Fain, the Broker - may not have haste but he's doing everything you wanna be doing with this commander

The Ozolith - basically helps keep things around

Feed the Swarm - targeted enchantment removal!

Dauthi Voidwalker - is a freaking beast of a stax card and it's a beater

Immersturm Predator - not a huge fan of this 1 but works well with your commander

Juri, Master of the Revue - this is some spicy tech

Fairly sure MH was after Domineria so Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is a home run

Terror of the Peaks - value town city furniture

Opposition Agent - doesn't have synergy but dang is it good
