Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker - rare dude Pestermite - common dude Gruesome Fate - common sorcery

Only 3 cards needed.

Heck, only one card is needed - Emrakul, the Aeons Torn - your opponent will never have a turn.

Muldrotha has too high a CMC for your deck and its not worth the splash. Muldrotha and Gruesome Fate should be cut for four Song of Freyalise . Take a look at my deck and please comment!

No removal = win

Hey Murphy77, cool deck! One suggestion I have, based on my time playing this deck, is that 4 Gruesome Fate is too many. I started with 4 and now I;m down to 2. I just always ended up having it rather than another card, typically with 2 or less Saprolings in play.

This is a cool subject and angle to work from. My immediate thoughts took a direction with Call to the Netherworld / Grave Scrabbler (maybe Unearth ) for extra value and Foul-Tongue Shriek / Gruesome Fate for a 'get-around' in a tight spot. Time to get brewing I think!

You could splash black for more removal and control resistance. Walk the Plank , Cast Down , Duress , Kitesail Freebooter , Fungal Infection , Theater of Horrors , and maybe Footlight Fiend , Dusk Legion Zealot , Vicious Conquistador , Drill Bit , Gruesome Fate , Blight Keeper , and Fire Shrine Keeper

Also, I would possibly trade out Goblin Gathering for some silver bullet like Sorcerous Spyglass unless Gathering has been

P.S. Sorry for such an extensive comment, just wanted to show you a bunch of options. I am in no way suggesting ALL of these cards together.

Very nice deck that seems rather fun to play. You don't see much standard goblins.

However I do have some suggestions for cards to replace Status / Statue as it seems rather narrow in its use.

Blood Divination, Costly Plunder, or Risk Factor for card advantage.

Contract Killing to provide slightly more mana for Balefire while also providing a good kill spell.

Gruesome Fate for something that could provide another possible Banefire.

As for sideboards I don't have a good idea of what meta is currently existing in standard right now so I doubt I would be much help.

I think that Vraska, Relic Seeker is very good in the sideboard against midrange decks. Gruesome Fate is actually a quite undervalued but competent card in token decks.

(Bit to read, hope some of it helps :)

Hi, I enjoyed making vampire decks for a time as well and if possible I'd like to make a couple suggestions. Some budget, some not so budget but mostly budget wise since I believe thats what your going for.

Firstly, I really enjoy seeing your deck at the moment with a good creature base although moment of craving and triumph are two cards I'm a little bit different about, especially having three of them for both, craving in my opinion is the better one and triumph not bad but has uses later. I can see the theme of your deck is similar to one of mine with gain/drain. However, If I'm to suggest anything from those it'd be a Radiant Destiny if thats a card that interests you. Considering you have legion lieutenants out, destiny adds additional +1/+1 and has ascend where all those permanents out will grant you city's blessing. Thus also giving everything vigilance.

Secondly creature wise, I could suggest cards like Sanctum Seeker considering with all the vampires you'll have, he'll increase the life drain and gain strategy since whenever "a" vampire attacks, as long as he's out there you'll be draining the opponets life quickly while gaining as well. Seeing your going the only Ixalan route due to rotation, not much other creatures to suggest rather than Twilight Prophet but not the best card for an aggro deck. Another thing I can suggest is to keep duskborne or try out Skymarcher Aspirant, its a 2/1 instead and gains flying fast with cities blessing at the pace your running at.

Recommendations I have are to put in Radiant Destiny, maybe Queen's Commission?, also a Legion's Landing  Flip would be a great addition to the deck since it can net you good lifelink token vampires over time and it builds up quick.

Consider some removal options as well maybe? Walk the Plank for destroying creatures that aren't merfolk can benefit alot if your going up against mono-green or lots of tough flyers. It's saved me quite often.

I could also suggest Arterial Flow, Gruesome Fate, and not much else other than maybe a Champion of Dusk.

I hope something of these helps you out if your still updating the deck. Hope you have great luck with the deck building :). I love vampires and get carried away with writing about stuff but I've played them for a while when getting back into magic a year ago.

Other people made really good suggestions as well and I'd also take the advice from them as well.
