Out: Greed, Blood Celebrant, Demon's Horn, Deathgreeter, Magus of the Coffers, Tendrils of Agony, Vampire Nighthawk, Charcoal Diamond, Haunted Crossroads, Knight of the Ebon Legion, Diabolic Intent, Spawning Pit, Crypt of Agadeem and 21 Swamps

Hello , i have played with his deck over than 25 Best of one matches in MTG ARENA, i have never found any use for Leyline Prowler , what do you think a useful substitution would be for this card?? I have tried using a cheap mass removal like Cry of the Carnarium or a bigger threat like Skarrgan Hellkite how do you feel about these cards? Or maybe an early drop like Knight of the Ebon Legion could work as a two of?? Other than that i have a great time playing this deck thanks for the list.

Why only 1xsorin?
Sorin, Grim Nemesis or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord if you wanted to splice in some White through either Duel Lands or Artifacts. Hell, a couple Lotus Field s would work even Unknown Shores could do the trick.
Also, I'd trade in Barren Moor Bojuka Bog Castle Locthwain Piranha Marsh for 4x Westvale Abbey Flip They'll never see that coming and it plays into the story of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and since the Shadowspear is made from pieces of the Helvault you could add one of them.
Indulgent Aristocrat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , & Vampire Outcasts I would personally replace them with 3x Bloodthirsty Aerialist s but they can be replaced with Knight of the Ebon Legion , Dark Impostor , & Child of The Night for a much better effect.

Oh I totally had a brain fart lol, I read that as not . I saw what you were going for but thought it was 2 mana, but you're right it is a good inclusion to trigger Hero.
Not sure about Hero of the Pride over something as powerful as Fervent Champion , seeing as you have no board presence until T2. First Strike is awesome with pump spells! Footlight Fiend is an option if you're looking for another Hero trigger, and can ping something upon death.
Also, not really any interaction besides the split card. 2 copies of Shock might fit nicely if you cut 1 copy of Tajic, Legion's Edge (since it is legendary) or Feather, the Redeemed along with 1 copy of Gods Willing , or just 2 copies of Gods Willing and no creature cuts. Could help you power through a Knight of the Ebon Legion , kill a Gilded Goose , or go face for 2 more points of damage.

Grumgully, the Generous strikes me as a particularly good card, since it gives a counter to any of our creatures. I think that a more midrange-y build with it, Warden of the Chained , Skarrgan Hellkite and a good ramp package might be more successful, but that is reserved for test batch 3.
The big problem cards are the ones that brickwall the attack - Knight of the Ebon Legion is a prime example. A T1 Knight makes it impossible to attack by turn three unless the appropriate creature is drawn with 4 power or more.

Yo XinZhao, sorry for the late reply got pretty busy. In regards to Knight of the Ebon Legion , I personally like the card. However holding up to activate his ability never really happened. Every time I had mana open I was using it to drop equipments or something of value. In my mind, you have to do something every turn to gain advantage, especially in Mardu colors when you don't have much resources in terms of card advantage. You have to use every turn efficiently, eventually I cut it but it was one of the latter cuts and was kept in the original build for awhile.
In a tribal build however, I really like the card. He is a low drop with relevant abilities that can become a threat on his own with supporting cards. I hope that answers your question!

I'm thinking you could use Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven as a life gain engine to fuel your Bloodthirsty Aerialist . You also have enough cheap black creatures to ping someone with Ayara, First of Locthwain a few times per turn to help get +1/+1 counters on Knight of the Ebon Legion . Epicure of Blood and Vindictive Vampire might be good to add. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is going to help you power up your vampires and give them lifelink and deathtouch for the turn if they don't have it. Blood Burglar, Savage Gorger, and Dark Remedy would be my first cuts. I'd also see if there are good replacements for Disfigure and Sorin's Thirst.
