Thanks for the suggestion. I'm currently running Censor as another counterspell besides Drown, since the deck doesn't have many counterspells, and Pioneer really doesn't have many good counterspells in general. The fact that it can cycle is basically the only reason I'm running it since it lets me dig deeper if the opponent has a lot of mana or if I really need to find something to get rid of the pact before I lose the game.

In terms of removal, I've found there are a lot of really powerful legendary creatures I want to remove, so I've been using Heartless Act, Dreadbore, and Drown in the Loch in the 2-cmc removal slot instead.

Yeah I thought of,Oona, Queen of the Fae, but dosen't it have a too high CMC? I'm thinking of adding 3 Spellskite as a creature, both cuz I love the card and it would work nice vs removals. Telepathy is fkn sweet tho, definitely gona put that one in, thanks!

Heartless Act seems nice, imma put that in also. Removal is something I indeed need more of. Relic of Progenitus is most likely a must for me aswell, at my LGS the meta is dominated by heavy graveyard usages. I really wana get in Cunning Evasion someway also.

I would recommend Oona, Queen of the Fae for a creature. Also, I would run at least 4 copies of Telepathy. an excellent one drop to know what you are up against.

Some other sideboard cards I would run: Heartless Act or Infernal Grasp whichever you prefer, but you need some removal for sure.

Also, Relic of Progenitus is a great card for graveyard hate, never hurts to run on the sideboard. as well as, Shadowspear. it is a great way to get around hexproof and indestructible. Also, I would run Cunning Evasion, especially if you are relying on etb triggers.

yeah i was too lazy to give actual feedback on nonland cards sorry

Gatekeeper is really good, I'd put it in as a 3 of at least. If you wanna lean more into the sacrifice for value build with Blood Artist/Viscera Seer/Bloodghast/Cordial Vampire etc you can run Kalastria Highborn.

For Doom blade replacements, we have Bloodchief's Thirst, Dismember, Infernal Grasp, maybe Heartless Act. With the new innistrad sets running Victim of Night seems like a bad idea so I won't suggest it.

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!

I think you could maybe round out the removal suite a little by dropping 1 or 2 Trophies for Heartless Act.

Also, have you considered splashing red? Gives you access to Lightning Bolt, Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger, and Kolaghan's Command. 4 Scoozes definitely feels overboard so it would let you cut down a bit there. Kroxa + Scooze together would probably strain the manabase some though.

Say I have a land that became a creature with +1/+1 counters (Emergent Sequence) and the opponent casts Heartless Act and removes those counters... Will the land go to the graveyard or go back to being a land?
