Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet Discussion

First of all thanks for the comment and your interest in my build!
Vampire Nocturnus is a keeper for me, it has won me several games since my deck is mainly black coloured and its always nice to declare attackers and wait for the reactions of opponents and than play a vampiric tutor and put a black card top library :D
Living Death imo the better card than Patriarch's Bidding since I first sac my own board! for example: Goblin Bombardment and ping all the extra damage, than everyone needs to sac his board and all our vamps are coming back! And to answer your next question... This combo play works like a charm when you have Purphoros, God of the Forgeon board :) Elenda, the Dusk Rose ... Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet... Purph is a must have for aggro swarm edgar build :)
Midnight hunt is looking great! That Socialite looks insane and is defo gonna get slotted in here!!
Gonna check your build out right away!

That is a great point. I do plan on adding Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, hopefully sooner rather than later. Do you have any other recommendations other than that?

I should mention, I've been giving you advice under the assumption you're working with a limited budget. I bring this up because fetch lands like Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta and Prismatic Vista are all extremely useful in vampires even if you're monocolor because they let you reuse Bloodghast up to twice per turn, they can force a shuffle to hopefully get Nocturnus active, and they thin your deck making it slightly more likely you'll draw what you need.

Your non-creature spells could use fixing. Feast of Blood is bad. Sorcery speed and requiring vampires means you're casting it turn 3 at absolute earliest.
Doom Blade is also outdated. Fatal Push is on the right track here, as is the above advice for utility lands though I'd add Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx as you're monocolor.
Imperious Sorin is the best card in vampires, period. Should be an automatic 4-of.
Other vampires that are useful here: Captivating Vampire (cut Yahenni and/or Drana, a straightforward lord is more useful), Gatekeeper of Malakir (fantastic value), Viscera Seer (strong contender for the best vampire ever printed), Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (win condition by himself), Champion of Dusk (Ideal turn 3 Sorin target) and Indulgent Aristocrat (ideal partner with Cordial and Bloodghast)
One last thing: if you have the 4 Inquisitions in your maybeboard I'd use the full set of 4. Hand disruption wins games.

Hey StoryArcher, I have a lot of experience with black devotion - I’d like to share my thoughts with you (I am making suggestions regardless of budget considerations, since I don’t see the budget tag):
I concur with the other users above - you need to seriously consider mainboarding more cheap removal. Rider is good, but it’s expensive at 3 mana and also costs 2 life. It’s ok to run 1-2, but there’s a reason why Fatal Push is a mainstay in black decks. Especially if you run a few fetch lands to thin the deck and trigger revolt. Another good option is Dismember, which kills the germ created by Kaldra Compleat and other pesky indestructible creatures for as low as 1 mana. The new Infernal Grasp looks good too.
You are running too many Gray Merchant of Asphodel - 2 is enough. You don’t want them to clog up your hand, and your land count is lean at 22 lands.
Sign in Blood is a weak card because it doesn’t further your board state. Phyrexian Arena is slower, but it draws you a card every turn and adds to devotion. Also Liliana, the Last Hope helps fish for creatures from your deck/graveyard. She is complimented well by Liliana of the Veil, which discards your own cards but her ultimate is game-ending. Geralf's Messenger is good but slow. I would cut them in favor of the Lilianas.
I don’t see the usefulness of Knight of the Ebon Legion. You aren’t running a tribal vampire deck, and it seems out of place. Consider Dauthi Voidwalker to add to your devotion and for built-in graveyard hate. There are more graveyard based decks than ever in today’s meta.
I concur with wallisface - splashing a little white for better removal on the sideboard is a big help in today’s meta. Lingering Souls is very useful to generate pressure in the early game and can be discarded by Liliana and Collective Brutality. Also Silent Clearing is a great way to draw additional cards. If you run 1-2 Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth, you can turn your fetches and Silent Clearings into swamps and save life.
Here is a link to my list, for your reference:
Hope this helps! :)
