Anguished Unmaking and Vindicate are better than Bedevil and Utter End Imo. I honestly don't think that Sorin Markov is very good for this deck. Sure he sets one players live total to 10 but I wouldnt want to pay 6 mana for that. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is pretty good as a replacement for him imo. I would definitely play Patriarch's Bidding in this deck.

Skyblade of the Legion is a really low impact creature. You don't have that much lifegain in the deck so I don't think that Markov Purifier is any good for your deck. YOu dont have that many Swamps so Nirkana Revenant propably doesnt do much.

Florian, Voldaren Scion Vampire Socialite Dusk Legion Zealot Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet are some Vampires that you could add

This looks good for an early draft of a Mardu vamps build. My Only real changes would be more Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord, more fetch lands and more Fatal Push.

Blasting Zone and Dragonskull Summit imho could go for more fetches, you could also look at the removal options red gives you such as Lightning Bolt and Terminate. Dreadbore is a sorcery which is usually bad for removal but planeswalker hate is at a premium in the current meta.

You could also add your choice of Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek to get rid of opposing creature hate.

My main recommendations for other vampires you could add would be Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Knight of the Ebon Legion. Both are extremely powerful. I'd recommend Olivia Voldaren if your deck weren't obviously meant to be an aggressive build. Maybe Edgar, Charmed Groom  Flip on the same note. If you can squeeze in more Sorins you could consider Champion of Dusk, Lord Xander, the Collector, or sideboard Blood Baron of Vizkopa.

Adanto Vanguard is a fantastic white vamp btw.

Personally, I'd drop the Martyrs of Dusk for Bloodghast as well. You could cut 1 cordial and 2-3 Indulgent Aristocrat for more support.

It looks strong for a somewhat rough draft, a little finetuning and you might have something good here.

Thanks Memphismaymagic5! I like Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet as a 1/3 split with Desecration Demon. I'm not sold on Go Blank. If it was 2 mana then absolutely. I think Whispers of Emrakul might be a better choice over Go Blank. At 3 MV I'd want a bigger pay-off.

I cannot recommend enough 2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in the main board, minimally the sideboard!

+1 from me!

This reminds me a lot of a zombie/vampire tribal I made a few years back.

Have you considered something like Collective Brutality for value from Bloodghast?

Also Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet helps for life total and tokens.

Fun looking deck!

Lol your comment page is getting long. Had to scroll for a min.

Yeah I took a quick peak and there are a few tweaks/upgrades you can run over some others I think that wont be too overbudget.

I'd run:

Burnished Hart (under $2) or my favorite Yavimaya Elder (under $1) overDawntreader Elk/Neverwinter Dryad

So if your gonna pay to play lands you might as well get 2 for the price of one. Right? These 2 all stars allow you to pull 2 lands (deck thinning) and elder is even a static trigger which means you can sac to other outlets and still get value...soon much value lol.

Living Death(under $10) over Culling Ritual

Honestly I see the appeal in both. Culling however is more local meta based with high end, low cmc deck opponents. Living death covers a better wide meta and pairs amazingly with Dauthi Voidwalker, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or even a Scavenging Ooze

Toski, Bearer of Secrets ($10) over Oakhame Adversary

If your running a draw engine like this toski is a clear winner over adversary because he covers each attacking creature so you can draw multiple cards per turn instead of 1.

Veil of Summer (under $10) over Heroic Intervention

This is a meta call swap. I like Veil because it protects you from counters and the 2 of the most popular wipe spells colors. And draws a card. But if your group is heavy on red and white intervention is better.

For Junji, the Midnight Sky I usually replace creature for creature but in your decks case you can trim a reanimate since you have about 9 not including Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Best replacement creature for creature is taking out Apprentice Necromancer, otherwise Dread Return or Life / Death.

I say these 2 because of the exile clause and death only targets your yard un-like Reanimate, Animate Dead, and Necromancy which allow you to hit any yard.

Also you may want to add another free sac outlet. I highly recommend Altar of Dementia. It's budget friendly at around $10 ATM from mm2. Mill opponents and fills your yard fast. Great replacement for one of the extra reanimate spells you have.

StoryArcher just to respond to the 4 bullet-points assigned to me, in order:

  • Yes your approach for Surgical Extraction hitting combo is a good one. However, the card also doubles as grave hate, and between having 4 of them, and a mainboard playset of Voidwalker, i think any more is excessive. So I guess i’d suggest to ditch the relics.

  • Bad Moon as an answer to bolt seems pretty futile. It could help versus Anger (and Fury), but i think there’s probably more pressing things to be playing in your sideboard. I’ve seen no other competitive devotion decks run Anger-hate, but ultimately it’s a meta call. I suspect Anger is played very seldom now that Fury exists - and Bad Moon isn’t as effective a choice versus that.

  • Whether or not to run Cry is again a meta call. I would say if your aim with it is to stomp on weenie-tribal decks, Plague Engineer is a stronger choice, as it will perform a stronger role, while also providing devotion. Cry is a much more situational option.

  • Yeah i’m absolutely suggesting splashing red for Blood Moon. It would mean running a single Blood Crypt and 4x Marsh Flats mainboard (i say Marsh Flats over the BR fetch, as this helps disguise your sideboard plan). The amount of games you’ll win against tough-matchups by dropping a cheeky Blood Moon will surprise you. However, the whole package isn’t cheap (shocks/fetches), so unless you already have most the needed cards, i’d suggest seeing how greedy your metas manabase is before committing to it.

For what it’s worth, if i were running this deck, my sideboard’d look something like this:
