Tigurius on Vampires

Thanks for the recommendations.

I have updated my deck per you advice, but am still looking into non-basic lands. I've found that prices are a bit different here in New Zealand compared to American "standard" prices, but are generally the same.

I reworked the deck a bit; And I guess having a couple more higher cost Vampires and a couple of less spells, which I was kind of relying on chance to get, would obviously work better in an aggro deck.

My main problem is due to social distancing, and my job as an essential worker, and all that rubbish has limited my game play to dabbling with a few games against myself - It gives me a basic idea of how my cards work individually and together, but not an "intimate' knowledge.

The idea I have is to almost go all out with attacking when I can, and hopefully my Vampires start increasing in Power/Toughness to finish off the game if either I'm unlucky, or my opponent has an answer for my aggro deck and the game starts to draw out. Along with that, if I have to play a bit more cautiously, or if a nasty creature comes onto the table, then I'll hold back a Vampire of the Dire Moon or Gifted Aetherborn (or 2) to chump block - just as an intimidation factor; But I honestly have no idea if that tactic will be intimidating. And finally I decided in most games, in which I didn't go up against a control deck, having a card up come up allowing me to draw more cards to put more creatures on the battlefield later in the game gave me a real advantage.

If I have the wrong strategy/idea of how I'm playing my deck, I'm always open to advice.

I've been thinking about the auto-includes for monoblack vamps in Modern.

4 Bloodghast, 4 Gifted Aetherborn, 4 Gatekeeper of Malakir, 4 Knight of the Ebon Legion is a base to build from.

Viscera Seer is absolutely amazing for more midrange-y builds (not strictly necessary but he's a very good card, ditto for Indulgent Aristocrat) and I'd go for 4 Vampire Nocturnus and some mix of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and/or Champion of Dusk if you're looking to capitalize on Sorin.

Condemned + Ghast + Visitor is a decent lineup but sometimes you won't have a desired card to discard. I probably wouldn't use him as an engine but he does partner well with visitor. Cordial has definite uses but he's more built for aggressive builds with a lot of 1 mana creatures, or an aristocrats type engine with things like Kalastria Highborn, Viscera Seer, Bloodghast, Blood Artist and Sorin's second +1.

I'd also keep Fatal Push at 4, it's just that good, and consider Indulgent Aristocrat if you want another 1-drop plus Gifted Aetherborn. Very strong turn 2 creature.

Not bad options TheRoaringRegisaur, I just don't know how they fit into this deck. Maybe remove Cruel Celebrant for Gifted Aetherborn?

Nice Deck! Instead of Shadow Alley Denizen I would maybe include Gifted Aetherborn so you can profit more from his lifegain and deathtouch is always neat. It just pushes your mana-curve slightly, so I think it could be worth it. Also the Lord just doesn't quite get the job done, so I would consider Knight of the Ebon Legion which can give you more value later on and is a mana-sink.

NiTRoBoX on The Vampire Bloodlines

Cards I would like to add when they come out from the new Zendikar set:
Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats
Drana, the Last Bloodchief
Nighthawk Scavenger
Cards I would take out for them:
Mirri the Cursed
Gifted Aetherborn
and something else I'm not sure yet as I might add only 2 out of those 3.
Hopefully there would be few more interesting vampires or other cards in this set :)

Valengeta on Gain life, lose friends

Hello! For starters I think your land count is a bit low for your average CMC. You should either add more lands or replace some spells with cheaper and more efficient ones. Vampire of the Dire Moon and Gifted Aetherborn are great cheap drops, giving you life and deterring attacks and blocks with deathtouch. Vampire Nighthawk has the same effect, with flying to boot. Exsanguinate might be easier to play than Debt to the Deathless. Another Wrath or the cheaper alternative Day of Judgment should also be easier to cast than Garruk's Wake. Diabolic Tutor is better than Razaketh's Rite.

If you wanna play a 6 CMC spell, how about Beacon of Immortality instead of Winged Shepherd? Even Sunblade Angel is better. Kothophed, Soul Hoarder might be fun as well.

For removal you can use Go for the Throat, Victim of Night, Fatal Push, Tragic Slip, etc. I think you have a lot of 1 of's and you could focus your strategy more with better cards and more copies of them. Still, this looks fun to play in multiplayer with friends
