Destroy target creature. You lose 2 life.

Good midrange build. You have a lot of graveyard-based interaction, so let's focus on that a bit.
I would recommend that you put more low-CMC cards into the deck; 3 1-drops isn't very much, especially for a midrange deck. I would add a few more Willow Geists. Some more Sigardian Saviors could also be super helpful.
Once you've messed with these changes a bit, I think the deck will be a bit more sturdy and consistent. Very interesting first draft!

Possible suggestions from ya boi Seal of Doom, Executioner's Capsule, Bastion of Remembrance, Go for the Throat, Wayfarer's Bauble, Skullclamp, Whip of Erebos,Damn, Looks really good but keeps going up in price Sign in Blood,Infernal Grasp,Ravenous Chupacabra is better than shriekmaw since hes not restrictive. 33 lands is a little low for me imo Some protection for her wouldn't hurt i think the blink cards like Cloudshift, Eerie Interlude are really good because they can also blink any LTB or effects if need to like Sun Titan and also add a bit of protection from removals. Maybe some indestructible spells or enchantments.

Apollo_Paladin I dropped out of Magic for the last few years. I completely missed the last 5 or 6 sets. Got sick of nothing but Drakes, Gates, and Red Deck Loses. Fracture is an awesome card for the deck, thanks. Vanishing Verse strikes me as a sideboard option, if I happen to play BO3, and I'm a bit hesitant to use Infernal Grasp due to its life cost. Both might be useful as 1 or 2 ofs to replace the Unmoored Egos.

That said, it's nice to see another Arena player posting decks here on TappedOut. +1 just for that haha

Okay. So, I think you should really lean into the control/combo shell. This deck could use combos like Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood, with some added redundancy in the forms of Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Marauding Blight-Priest, or Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion to close out the game. In order to accomplish this, I think you should cut a ton of the creatures and really lean into board wipes, control spells, and resource denial.
You could also do cute stuff like Phyrexian Unlife + Solemnity, giving yourself time to wipe the board again or go for the win with Peer into the Abyss. You should also consider taking a look at your mana base.
I'd suggest going for some fetches, checks, and shocks like:
I know I've given you a lot of suggestions. I think if you tried putting a list together with all the cards I named, plus some of the bangers from your current list and you'd have a badass deck! Don't worry about trying to do all that right now, though. See which look most appealing/are in your price range and add those first. A lot of these should be long term goals!
Don't tell Rett I gave you so many suggestions XD

Finally, Damnation can net you a very strong effect on the field with all your reanimation effects, and Murder is not a very good removal spell. I would consider Snuff Out, Doom Blade, Heartless Act, Infernal Grasp, Walk the Plank, Victim of Night, etc.

Apollo_Paladin I've seen your suggestions and I appreciate them very much! I'm very new into magic and I inherited some cards, so I got curious and got into it, but my knowledge is very limited.
I found what I think are two main weaknesses of the deck: The first one is that I don't think I don't take advantage of white color in my deck so much, so your suggestion of Unbreakable Formation and Rally the Ranks comes in handy! The second one is that the mana cost of my cards is imbalanced, and I need to remove some pricey cards in favor of other cards like Legion Lieutenant (as you suggested), Gifted Aetherborn or some Vampire Cutthroat.
Also, I decided to add in Champion of Dusk as I definitely prefer it over Sanctum Seeker or Bloodlord of Vaasgoth. Added the two missing Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle as well. Aand finally I listened to you and added Infernal Grasp instead of Walk the Plank, as it is super easy to purchase, like every other card you suggested!
I won't think of it as a critique! Just the opposite, you helped me so much and I'm very thankful for that :)

Nice build! +1
Lots of good picks here already. Since it's for casual I won't nit-pick all kinds of crazy efficiency and min/max stuff like expensive Dual Lands, but one vulnerability I see is that it's entirely creature-based for your power. Those types of builds can certainly work but there are a lot of "Destory all Creatures" type board-wipe cards out there, so with creature decks that include white I usually toss in a couple Unbreakable Formation so that you're free to save mana each turn if you think it may be an issue in an opponent's deck. It also works well as a kind of 'finisher' if you know Boardwipes aren't a threat, since not only are your creatures beefed up and indestructible for a turn, but they're all still untapped as blockers/attackers the following turns. This works pretty well for cleanup against creature vs. creature deck scenarios.
Another though might be tossing in a few Rally the Ranks since they are cheap to cast and are not vulnerable to creature destruction. Enchantment destruction is nowhere near as common a threat to run up against, and these are great to cast early so that you can quickly establish board control even with weenie creatures (or tokens).
One final thing that's worked well for me in my Black/White vampire constructions, and looks like you have enough Lifelink for it to work well for you, is Champion of Dusk. By the time he comes into play, he's often a full new hand of cards to draw. You might even look at some other life-based cards for more efficiency since gaining it back isn't a problem for you (like Infernal Grasp is an all-around better control spell than Walk the Plank).
None of these suggestions are particularly expensive, but please don't think of it as a critique. Just some thoughts to ponder and possibly some other avenues to explore. Nice Deck!
