Whip of Erebos is cheaper to cast than Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose is to cast & activate for global Lifelink -- plus it's a permanent effect instead of just for 1 Turn.

Vito is still worth running just for his other Leech ability, but I think this would give you some good synergy.

Also Knight of the Ebon Legion would work pretty well with your build also; looks like he'd be pretty easy to pump up counters on just using your lifegain/leech combos and then build up for a finishing attack. Or he could just be a super-reliable blocker for defense if needed.

+1 either way, I like seeing more folks tackle mono-color decks.

Hey, nice first brew of Edgar.

Consider adding a few more black one drop Vamps? Knight of the Ebon Legion and Indulgent Aristocrat are one drops who can be good with aggro or midrange Vamp strategies. Cards you could cut for these are Mortify and Tithe Drinker.

Diabolic Intent is another tutor to consider adding replacing New Blood. Ruinous Ultimatum wrecks your opponents in multiplayer Commander, it could replace Fumigate. Champion of Dusk's ETB effect is excellent draw with eminence, it could replace Falkenrath Noble. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is good with aggro and midrange Vamp strategies especially with Edgar, it could replace Dark Impostor.

Consider adding some more dual lands that can ETB untapped turn one to make black and some dual lands that can make white to replace some Plains?

Lands to consider cutting for these are 3x Plains, 1x Mountain and Reliquary Tower.

Good luck with your deck.

Also, don't miss that Knight of the Ebon Legion is "if a player" not "if an opponent" has lost 4 or more life.

These guys will beef up even when you take damage.

So, stuff like: Lucky Clover + Foulmire Knight, and play down a shock land untapped (Overgrown Tomb) even if you don't need the mana = +1/+1 counter on each one. There's some really sneaky ways you can pump up counters on these guys, especially with multiples in play.

I've been thinking about the auto-includes for monoblack vamps in Modern.

4 Bloodghast, 4 Gifted Aetherborn, 4 Gatekeeper of Malakir, 4 Knight of the Ebon Legion is a base to build from.

Viscera Seer is absolutely amazing for more midrange-y builds (not strictly necessary but he's a very good card, ditto for Indulgent Aristocrat) and I'd go for 4 Vampire Nocturnus and some mix of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and/or Champion of Dusk if you're looking to capitalize on Sorin.

Assassin's Trophy is a pricey drop, but having at least a couple of them is extremely solid for sure.

I'd also look at Knight of the Ebon Legion, he's probably the best 1-mana drop you'll find for Black in a Knight build.

If you want some further inspiration for synergies/combos, you can take a peek at my Knight deck (tho mine is on MTG:Arena, not a physical deck). Regardless, maybe it'll help:

Mardu Speed Knights (MTG Arena Build)
