I'd add a sideboard to the list, (to fight against other decks,) and take out the Savai Triome. The Savai Triome slows the deck down and white isn't really needed because your only white card is hybrid. (Talking about Lurrus of the Dream-Den.)

A good sideboard might include...

3x Soul-Guide Lantern

2x Damping Sphere

2x Doom Blade

2x Fry

3x Legion's End

2x Infinite Obliteration

1x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

My issue with Call to the Grave in this list is it'll force me to sac my Commander, and other cards that generate a lot of value the longer they're on the board, like Grave Titan, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet & Overseer of the Damned so I figured it didn't really fit.

So I’ve been checking out more lists like this and I think a good sideboard could look something like this: 2x Fry 1x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet 3x Leyline of the Void 3x Pithing Needle 1x Golden Demise 1x To the Slaughter 3x Kolaghan's Command 1x March of the Drowned I also like how you had Collective Brutality but I just couldn’t find a place for it. I dunno- it might be really good, but either way it’s out of my budget range lol.

This deck is built more like a Commander deck then a Pioneer deck. That means it won't be very consistent. It also means that its path to victory isn't clear.

Take a look at this deck Sarkhan's Dragon Den

It has three very clear win conditions. The description also describes what it wants to happen in the early, mid, and late stages of the game.

Once you decide how you want this deck to win, work out which cards will get you there. Beef them up to 3 and 4 copies, and start cutting back the single copy cards.

I'm not sure of your budget, either. I have a feeling that you mashed this list together out of cards you already own. I can tell you from approximately six years of brewing my own decks, you are unlikely to win any games at a tournament without buying a good number of Rares and Mythics for your deck.

An example I can see right away is that Murderous Rider is a far batter card than Murder

I have played with both.

I would also get rid of Cabal Stronghold for 3x Castle Locthwain

Once again, I have been playing with this card and it is ridiculously good.

You have no good ongoing draw in this deck. I use Ob Nixilis Reignited

Due to the fact that Ob Nix uses my life, Murderous Rider helps offset that, as does Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet

Kalitas is very good at the moment, as he exiles creatures. People have a lot of recurring creatures in the current meta.

You have a lot of work to get this deck more ship shape.

When you've made it more competitive give me a shout, and I'll take another look at it.

Good luck.

Contamination is awesome. Probably a little too backbreaking for but it’s got a spot on the maybeboard for sure.
As for alternate commanders I really don't know. This is my first deep dive into Commander. I considered Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip when building the deck originally. But Sheoldred, Whispering One was always a favorite of mine.

I like the idea of having the plan B of milling your opponents. This way your commander has more targets and Rise of the Dark Realms becomes so much spicier.

For this I’d suggest running cards that fill your opponent’s hands and graves using cards like Font of Mythos/Howling Mine, Fascination, and Anvil of Bogardan. This sets up explosive combos with cards like: Psychic Corrosion, Dreamborn Muse, and Windfall/Jace's Archivist.

Another suggestion I have is to run Phyrexian Altar. It’s 1. a sac outlet 2. Ramp 3. a whole lot of fun with Gravecrawler. He combos with the altar giving you infinite 2/2s with Diregraf Colossus and infinite Altar of the Brood triggers.

Big finishers cost a lot so Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers got you covered. Running the two I believe always calls for a handy Expedition Map. Cut some basics, easy.

Things I’d cut for the 9 cards I mentioned would be: Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (see above), Liliana's Mastery (too much for too little)), Dark Salvation (same reason), Sinister Sabotage (same reason), Expropriate (cut for something that synergies with your general. Take a cooler Rise over some stolen permanents), Ancient Excavation (Dreamborn Muse tho), Liliana, Untouched By Death (the best part about her Gisa and Geralf do already), Entomb (not sure about this one actually), and a land.

Thank you for coming to my ted talk.

Darkewarrior-- fair enough! I do think your deck enables madness, I am just unsure how reliably you will have targets in hand. At 9 cards plus 2 enablers, that is just shy of 20% of the deck-- and perhaps that is plenty for what you wish to accomplish. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, though, is one of the best cards in the format and a vampire. That card makes just about any deck better! To each their own!

I wish you well in the battle for vampire dominance! Cheers and good luck!
