If you're looking for further advice still, here's my list of best 1 mana vampires:

Viscera Seer

Knight of the Ebon Legion

Stromkirk Noble

Indulgent Aristocrat

Insolent Neonate

More niche 1-drops include

Falkenrath Gorger

Vampire Lacerator

Vicious Conquistador

Skymarcher Aspirant really only if you wanna be hyper aggressive and run like 8-12 lords.

If you want my opinion on the best vampires in MtG in no particular order:

Viscera Seer

Gatekeeper of Malakir


Knight of the Ebon Legion

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

Gifted Aetherborn

Stromkirk Noble

Olivia Voldaren

Champion of Dusk (because Sorin's a thing, before 5 mana was really pushing it)

and a narrow niche that makes him the best vampire in the game but ONLY in manaless dredge: Balustrade Spy

Have some time to reflect on how the tournament went, and what to do with the deck moving forward.

1st Round: UW Spirits (literally the precon) Got kinda embarrassed in this match; I drew poorly, and my opponent drew quite well, but I must admit the deck also wasn't fully ready for the matchup. My reasonable board of ground creatures couldn't do much against the flyers game 1, even gaining life on the attack with two Gifted Aetherborn and chunking in for 2-4 a turn with a Dream Devourer. I never drew any removal, but I also don't think I was really playing enough to respect the matchup. Warping Wail was reasonable, killing a lord with another on the stack, but not fantastic. There are 0 sorceries to get here, and the token could never chump anyways. Game 2, I used Cry of the Carnarium for a one-sided board wipe to kill 3 of his 4 creatures (the last was a Supreme Phantom. Then he ripped a Watcher of the Spheres and an Empyrean Eagle in the next two turns and I died anyways. Bad beats, such is life. 0-2

Round 2: Lotus Field Combo This one was somewhat a reversal of the last match. Deck had a ton of things to get with Warping Wail and Thought-Knot Seer and he had trouble racing some aggressive dudes. Game 2, I brought in some Thoughtseizes and Go Blanks and it was kind of a rout. It really is crazy how good Warping Wail is here, dealing with their Wish effects pretty well (and Sweltering Suns and its ilk postboard). I'd board in 4 more if I could, ha ha ha. 2-0

Super small this week, they were running two formats simultaneously alongside quite a few other games, so it was just the 2 rounds. Starting relatively soon they're going to shuffle the times/dates around a bit, so I should have more competitive tournaments to build off of. Deck is fun when it works and you're at least doing things even when it doesn't, I'm satisfied and will keep tuning.

I think Feast of Blood would be good here.

I also think 4 Nocturnus is slightly excessive and high on the curve. I would maybe go down 1-2 and add in more Captivating Vampire and other 1-3 drops. Gifted Aetherborn and Vampire Nighthawk come to mind.

As for Bloodghast, I may have just not figured out how to use him correctly yet. I’ve been having to choose between him or Gifted Aetherborn pretty frequently for turn 2, and the game is almost over by the time I even get him rolling. The added assurance that he will come back is incredible, but is it unwise to go down to 3 of him?

Gifted Aetherborn is one of my favorite cards. The art, the P/T, and the MV make it amazing!

This deck looks really fun! +1!

I just have a few suggestions that I think the deck a little faster and more consistent.

First, all of your creatures are pretty expensive! I would trim down on a few of the more expensive legendary creatures, and add some more aggressive style creatures.

I also think that your cards like Gleam of Battle, Coat of Arms, and Blade of the Bloodchief are just a bit too slow and only really help when you’re already ahead on board. If you’re behind, or the board is stalled, they don’t help much.

I think you should add some removal spells like Heartless Act, Murderous Rider (not a vampire but a creature after the removal spell!), Doom Blade, Path to Exile, or Condemn. There are a ton of removal spells so if you want more suggestions I can help out.

I hope it doesn’t seem like I’m ripping your deck apart! I think it’s really sweet! I would just play a little more aggressive of a deck if it were mine! Dusk Legion Zealot isn’tbig but it draws a card and can get big quickly with your other cards.

Gifted Aetherborn is another cheap vampire with lifelink and deathtouch!

If you're going to go for a similar creatures to what you already have in your deck currently. My top pick is

4x Vampire of the Dire Moon

I'd keep 4x Gifted Aetherborn and 2x-4x Vampire Nighthawk as well. That would give you 10-12 creatures with deathtouch and lifelink.

Another card out that list I like is Arrogant Bloodlord. It only costs 3 mana and it's a 4/4.
