Creature — Vampire Knight
Other Vampires you control get +1/+1.

These are some other cards to consider for the deck and theme. I would suggest using a 24/36 ratio (24 lands to 36 non lands). This gives you the best probability to draw a land every third or fourth turn, which will let you work your way up the mana curve. You should also strive for a nice bell curve on the mana graph if possible. A couple of 1 drops, a few 2 drops, a handful of 3's, a handful of 4's and then back down to a couple of 5 or 6's. Anything more costly than that can be hard to play or not quick enough for some games. And a couple of "responses" is good, ie "destroy target creature" or "exile target enchantment" Probably don't need more than 4-6 in a 60 card deck. I would pick 3-4 really important creatures, like Vito and indulging patrician and bloodthirsty aerialist, for the deck's theme and include 4 copies of them (except legendary creatures since you are only allowed to have one of them on the board at a time and you don't always want to draw a second one to just hold in your hand forever, so maybe drop it to 3(?) or keep at 4 if you think it's important enough). Then pick some "support" cards that help the theme along. In this case stuff like your card draw vampire would be a good choice. A couple of card draw type cards is great. For really expensive costing cards, 6+ mana, they should be your finishers. Once they hit the board you should be on your way to victory, so hopefully just 1 or 2 copies is enough. For a life gain theme, your defiant bloodlord or sanguine bond, is perfect. For a +1/+1 counter theme, you may want to look at splashing red for those vampires instead of white. I would focus on one or the other to streamline the deck to help you narrow down your choices for cards. I've mostly included the vampires with life gain/drain mechanics, but I can look into the +1/+1 counters vampires if you want as well. I like the vampire themes! A powerful tribe in magic!

Looking better, more trimmed. If you want to pursue the tokens method you could use more cards that create tokens, such as Edgar, Charmed Groom Flip, Elenda, the Dusk Rose, Legion's Landing Flip, Martyr of Dusk, Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle and Queen's Commission. You will need creatures to support you earlier in the game, and Vampire of the Dire Moon, Gifted Aetherborn, Legion Lieutenant, Cordial Vampire and Indulgent Aristocrat are looking good for that role.

Thank you for the upvote! Yes, I do know about the change....it is a shame, but I played the PS Classic version from the PS Store (can be played on PSP,PS3 and PS Vita), which still has the original voices.
I will keep your wish in mind and gonna do that the next time I play! (would also toss a glass of wine but that would give me weird looks in my LGS xD)
You are right about Legion Lieutenant, I put it under Minions because of its low CMC, probably gonna change that later and definitely fix the deck description as well.
Thank you again for your feedback, appreciate it!

Automatic +1 for the reference. I wish I could give more upvotes for this, though, it's rad and I love it. That game was my childhood. I am sorry, though, that I have to ruin everyone's day and inform you that they changed it in the new versions! If you buy SOTN right now (at least on Playstation, where I have it), they changed the quote in the beginning of the game.
Also, I need you to do something for me. The next time someone offers you a treaty stop them mid-sentence and say "Enough talk, have at you!" full swinging them.
Question: Shouldn't Legion Lieutenant be under #Bolster? The effect isn't super powerful, but it is, in fact, bolstering.

Apollo_Paladin I've seen your suggestions and I appreciate them very much! I'm very new into magic and I inherited some cards, so I got curious and got into it, but my knowledge is very limited.
I found what I think are two main weaknesses of the deck: The first one is that I don't think I don't take advantage of white color in my deck so much, so your suggestion of Unbreakable Formation and Rally the Ranks comes in handy! The second one is that the mana cost of my cards is imbalanced, and I need to remove some pricey cards in favor of other cards like Legion Lieutenant (as you suggested), Gifted Aetherborn or some Vampire Cutthroat.
Also, I decided to add in Champion of Dusk as I definitely prefer it over Sanctum Seeker or Bloodlord of Vaasgoth. Added the two missing Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle as well. Aand finally I listened to you and added Infernal Grasp instead of Walk the Plank, as it is super easy to purchase, like every other card you suggested!
I won't think of it as a critique! Just the opposite, you helped me so much and I'm very thankful for that :)

Legion Lieutenant is another fairly inexpensive card (both dollar-wise, and mana-wise) that can provide good all-around power for Orzhov-colored vampires.
Hope those suggestions end up giving you some fun stuff to toy around with!

So, if anyone is curious to hear my thoughts on the new vampires:
Evelyn, the Covetous is interesting. Little gimmicky but has potential.
Lord Xander, the Collector is the one I really want to talk about. I'm not sure if the second effect to mill is that useful, given flashback and other such mechanics are still a thing. However, his ETB effect and his effect upon death are ludicrously good. I'm legit looking at Xander as a possible 4-of. And I wouldn't need to go Grixis as I have Cavern and Sorin. Probably would be aiming to play him off Sorin's ult. I don't think I've seen a more perfect Imperious Sorin target besides maybe Champion of Dusk.
Ob Nixilis, the Adversary is probably good enough to be a 1-of here. With Sorin and Xander he can ult on turn 4 for a cheap shot potential win.
I have opinions on Crimson vow if anyone's still unsure regarding the vamps in that set (few good rakdos 2 mana vamps, also Edgar is actually quite good, so is the newest Sorin)
I'll look at updating side soon, I need to find a new casual Modern group but things have been dangerous here with a certain virus going around.

Legion Lieutenant is most of the reason to be in white/black - vamps get good keywords, add in some P/T and you can run away with the game.
If you're trying for sorins, I'd look at proliferate options - finding space for a Karn's Bastion in the lands, Throne of Geth + blood tokens, or Tezzeret's Gambit can do a lot, making your entire board big and turning sorin's -2s into -1.
Also, yes fixing is great, its usually worth having one or two basics for the inevitble Path to Exile type effects.
