Florian, Voldaren Scion
Legendary Creature — Vampire Noble
At the beginning of your postcombat main phase, look at the top X cards of your library, where X is the total amount of life your opponents lost this turn. Exile one of those cards and put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. You may play the exiled card this turn.

What would you cut and for who?

For Rakdos+ pinger decks, there is a card I recommend highly, Florian, Voldaren Scion. You're pinging, costing no mana, go to "combat", come out of it and dig down to find answers for the turn, can't find anything you can afford? Take a land for turn, just make sure to wait til 2nd phase for Florian, or you could end up exiling somethings you wanted to save for later turns and you spent all your mana already.

I'm just commenting (even though it's a late comment) to say thank you for helping me realize I could add more infinite to my vampires and make everyone hate it.
Disrupt Decorum is a fun card to just force combat and keep yourself safe for a turn and clean-up right after. Olivia's Wrath is a good boardwipe provided you have enough vampires. Florian, Voldaren Scion has paid off for me to help search and just throw things out. Edgar, Charmed Groom Flip is a good bit of value as well.

Thanks enpc, but I do have everything from Vampiric Tutor to Grim Tutor. I specifically did not add them because Dragon‘s Approach by itself already has a repetitive gameplay, so I’m not going to narrow it down to tutoring for Thrumming Stone and be done with it. It’s much more fun to dig with Florian, Voldaren Scion and see if you get lucky. I doubt I‘d ever activate Maskwood Nexus. I’d rather spend that on another DA or even on Magar of the Magic Strings but probably Black Market Connections would be the best option here. What I’m looking for is something like Whirlwind of Thought that gains me cards for casting DA.

New Blood is a fun and flavorful card and one can dream of pulling your given example out xD. But yeah, that card can help me disable my opponents' commander and steal scary creatures (my meta consists of decks which can cheat in fat scary creatues) so it is fair to keep that one. Vampire Nocturnus is a gamble, and us Magic players already have a severe gambling addiction. I have Viscera Seer, Bolas's Citadel, Forerunner of the Legion, Florian, Voldaren Scion and simple card draw to help me manipulate my top deck. It is risky but also highly rewarding, giving your tokens a big buff and making them evasive. I am probably gonna cut Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim, since it is not a vampire and not that synergistic.
Really appreciate your input!

Hey, good start, still have 25 cards to cut though which is a lot.
Lets start with cutting noncreature spells and then move to cutting creatures? First cuts to consider:
- Myriad Landscape
- Ash Barrens
- Shamanic Revelation
- Search for Tomorrow
- The Celestus
- Xenagos, the Reveler
You can afford to cut a couple of the subpar lands for five colors. Ash Barrens is fine if you want to spend one mana to fetch a basic land, but if you have to play it as a land then it could slow down being able to cast Jodah too much. Shamanic Revelation is not good draw here for five mana. You're much more likely to have a higher power creature than the same number of creatures equal or more than the amount of power.
There's 40 creatures here, but if I was building this deck I would play only 20 of them which includes both nonLegendary Elders. Some advice to consider is choose the 20-25 best Legendary creatures and cut the others? Since you're not playing hatebears, what you're looking for with Legends are getting value from other Legends or casting spells from exile. How they support Jodah because he's the best attacking creature when you control other Legends.
Using Legendary creatures you're currently playing here's how I would break down the priority areas from Legends to keep:
Those who draw, ramp or find other Legends.
- Sisay, Weatherlight Captain
- Reki, the History of Kamigawa
- Esika, God of the Tree Flip
- Shanid, Sleepers' Scourge
- Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain
- Maelstrom Wanderer
- Rashmi, Eternities Crafter
- Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder
- Niambi, Esteemed Speaker
Those who make Jodah a better attacker.
- Halana and Alena, Partners
- Kamiz, Obscura Oculus
- Odric, Lunarch Marshal
- Surrak Dragonclaw
- Arvad the Cursed
Those who help for recovery from removal.
Those who are support, but don't fit into the other areas.
Some Legends within the budget to consider adding:
Good luck with your deck.

Olivia Voldaren isn't in Standard, but your playgroup might allow it.
Be more aggressive with Vamps? Think Falkenrath Pit Fighter, not Olivia? More aggressive because the Vamp tribal matters cards here are Vampire Socialite and Gift of Fangs. These cards lean towards wanting more Vamps on the battlefield and being more aggressive with attacking. Turn 1 Falkenrath Pit Fighter, turn 2 Gift of Fangs enchanting Fighter is attacking with a 4/3 turn 2. Fighter can be more draw if it's not useful anymore.
Florian, Voldaren Scion is a good three drop Vamp, holds Gift of Fangs and counters from Vampire Socialite well with first strike. His trigger can be repeatable draw with a lot of card selection first if you're doing nice damage to your opponent with Vamps which being more aggressive with Vamps helps with.
