Since you have a lot of the ping life type guys like Blood Artist and such, I'm surprised you aren't running the Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood combo.

Also you are missing some other good lords and tribal vamp stuff like Bloodline Keeper  Flip Bloodlord of Vaasgoth Champion of Dusk Elenda, the Dusk Rose Falkenrath Gorger Forerunner of the Legion Indulgent Aristocrat Kalastria Highborn Legion Lieutenant Legion's Landing  Flip Malakir Bloodwitch Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle New Blood Olivia, Mobilized for War Olivia's Bloodsworn Feast of Blood Patron of the Vein Sanctum Seeker Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord Stensia Banquet Stensia Masquerade Thirsting Bloodlord Urge to Feed Vampire Nocturnus Vampiric Fury

ok way more suggestions than I expected, but all good cards to consider! Obviously don't need all of them, it depends on your strategy and what you want to focus on. I would very highly recommend at least Bloodwitch, Mavren Fein, Sanctum Seeker, and probably Legion Lieutenant and Landing for good cheap value on the low end. There's a lot you can get into if you want to mess with madness strategies, or focus on lifegain type stuff and exsanguinate. Like typically you would run Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth for an exsanguinate wincon, among other things. There are other Sorins you can dabble in if you want, but Imperious Bloodlord is probably the most value at 3 CMC and has strong synergy for straight vamp strategies.

Eradicator Valkyrie: not quite a Baneslayer Angel, but seems pretty powerful for 60-card formats nonetheless

I think Necropolis Regent, Malakir Bloodwitch, and Bloodlord of Vaasgoth can easily be subbed for any of your suggestions. You are absolutely right about Castle Locthwain. I'll be putting 4 in this deck. I think Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Sanctum Seeker would be my top subs. I think I'd consider removing some instances for 4 Knight of the Ebon Legion.

This deck feels like it’s trying to do a lot of different things. I ran a couple of sample hands and I saw some glimmers, but also like it runs out of gas. Toxic Deluge felt counter productive when you’re not getting stuff back often or drawing a lot of cards. Although if you’re on your heels I see the benefit.

One hand I did get Phyrexian Reclamation and a sac outlet. But I also got Oathsworn Vampire, Purphoros and Exquisite Blood, so that line took precedence. I love me some Olivia Voldaren and Mirri the Cursed but I drew them both in my test hands and they’re just so underwhelming without a shell that supports them.

Like I said, some nice glimmers with a solid foundation, but I think the problem with vampire creatures is they don’t have much to unite them other than Edgar himself. The madness line of play doesn’t lend itself to this deck very well though, so drain and gain it is, but then you’re not really synergizing with Edgar. Other than etb triggers and swinging away with tokens.

Cruel Celebrant could fit here, and Malakir Bloodwitch. I’m not a big fan of Vampiric Rites but I have very high expectations of that role, I’d rather just see Dusk Legion Zealot and a way to return him to hand after sacrificing him. But again, that’s just me. I was excited about vampiric rites at first but it never did enough in the environments I’ve played it in. Maybe Stensia Masquerade and Angrath, Captain of Chaos to make your dudes harder to block?

I have a lot of thoughts, and a lot of potential directions to go. Even Call the Bloodline and Bloodline Necromancer seem interesting. A deck built with Olivia, Mobilized for War and Anje Falkenrath as lieutenants and a madness/reanimating subtheme could be fun. Strong? I dunno though.

What do you think?

Just played my first game with it, 5 players including myself - Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir control, Saheeli, the Gifted artifacts, Arcades, the Strategist defenders, Meren of Clan Nel Toth infect, and then myself.

I was lucky and got to start the game (won high roll). On turn 4 I had 4 vamps on board and then played Captivating Vampire bringing my total to Vampires 6 and giving me a huge board control advantage, Fortunately blue was already tapped out as I was the last player before him. I took Arcades after he cast him to shut down his deck. Played Malakir Bloodwitch turn 5 bring my life total up to like the 90's. Damnation was played turn 6 but in response I used Captivating Vampire to take Pawn of Ulamog from the infect player and ended up with 8 eldrazi tokens. Turn 7 I played Necropotence and drew 50 cards, sculpting a perfect hand, throwing a crazy amount of cards into my graveyard. Cast Burning Wish into Rise of the Dark Realms on turn 8 dumping all graveyards creatures onto the board (including my super full graveyard) under my control and that was basically it, won turn 9 because no one had a board wipe.

Hey, you're welcome.

To start, cards to consider cutting are lands since you don't need 41 lands in an Orzhov Commander deck especially since there's so many basic lands. Consider 36 lands? Next are creatures who don't have flying or other evasion.

You want to make some choices of the kind of creatures/theme you want to play. There's a small Vampire theme here with Captivating Vampire, Malakir Bloodwitch, etc. For these Vamps to be worth playing you need a lot more Vampires because without Vamps they don't really do much. There's many Vampires who have evasion therefore if you choose you could increase the Vamps a lot and make your deck more Vampire tribal then anything else.

A reason to cut the Vamps is there's many more nonVamp creatures that are better. Neither Tymna or Ravos are Vamps which makes the tribe overall less good, no tribal synergy with your Generals. If you choose to keep the Vamps then include a lot more of them or if not then cut them.

Cards to consider cutting:

I would cut all these cards, doesn't matter what direction for your deck you choose to go. There's better budget options for each one of these cards. Some cards such as Corpse Knight are good, but it doesn't go with the current strategy therefore I would cut it.

I don't recommend the Vampire direction, but if you want to play Vamps then I do offer advice for that direction.

OUT: Malakir Bloodwitch - Mathas, Fiend Seeker - Rakish Heir - Cruel Celebrant

IN: Viscera Seer - Vampire Cutthroat - Blood Seeker - Gatekeeper of Malakir

I try to fit in more 1 and 2 drops. But its damn hard to make cuts. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth and Sangromancer where also in for the cuts (mostly becaus they are CMC 4&5) but both CAN provide greate value. often Sangromancer saved my ass
