You might like these: Marauding Blight-Priest, Vampire of the Dire Moon, Vampire Cutthroat, Speaker of the Heavens, Griffin Aerie, Indulging Patrician, Witch of the Moors, Light of Promise, Vizkopa Guildmage. These cards are neat because they weaponize your life gaining effects. Some card-draw effects might help too: Greed, Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving.

Personally I would cut out these to make room for better cards: Soul Shepherd, Serrated Scorpion, Lone Missionary, Loxodon Restorer, Revered Unicorn, Vampire Neonate, Sunspring Expedition, Font of Vigor, Healing Salve, Alabaster Potion, Drudge Skeletons, Child of Night, Bloodhunter Bat, Blood Glutton

Hey there, nice deck! There are some good pieces in here. I feel like there are some more optimal cards that could be added/swapped, but I'm not big into standard, so take my suggestions as you will!

Kazandu Nectarpot I think would get you more value than Vampire Spawn, for multiple triggers instead of just one to combo off of Dina. Marauding Blight-Priest is another great combo piece that stacks with Dina, I'm just not sure who you'd want to switch out for - maybe Scion of the Swarm?

Thank you for your comment IHATENAMES. Could you argument your card choice further? I am very new to MTG. Why is Marauding Blight-Priest better than Epicure of Blood? Is it because of the mana cost? And why is Wall of Blood a good card and for which card should I switch it? Only paying life once would only make it a 1/3, would you pay multiple life to make it really strong and then sac it? Let me know if my train of thought matches yours.

Currently building around Dina as well. I made a artifact lifegain themed deck that feels similar to this one. https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/dina-50dollar/

I would suggest running some extort creature and switchingMarauding Blight-Priest over epicure of blood. And Wall of Blood over any gain life put +1+1 creature make a good target to sac for dina. I personally went more aristocratic in my most recent version which feels alot better.

I'd suggest taking a look at the two for card ideas

BruhYouFarted on Pauper Curses

I would also recommend Marauding Blight-Priest , but I would like to recommend taking out Kalastria Healer and Vermin Gorger . How about switching the Gorger to another gorger: Savage Gorger . With all the pings, Ol' Savage is almost guaranteed a counter each turn. Vermin Gorger just doesn't have good hits beside Kalastria Healer ; which isn't great. Regarding the Healer, I would either swap it for Dusk Legion Zealot or; If you are counting to go into the late-game, Bloodrite Invoker could be a serious threat, pummeling for three with drain while still synergizing with the theme of the deck. If not, Dusk Legion Zealot could be a good one-shot card draw while still holding a chump. With stall-y decks like this, Withercrown doesn't seem great. Go with Cast Down instead. On that note, I feel that Paralyze is self-deprecating in this deck. With the extra mana they have, they can just pay the tax needed for Paralyze , and swing in. If you want to keep their baddies at bay, I would recommend Typhoid Rats (in the main board), a Oldie but a Goodie. The Rats do a great job on defense, and most-often trade up. (Kill a creature with a greater mana value or alternate cost.) Vampire Envoy doesn't do much in a pillow-forty deck like this, i would take it out for Sign in Blood .

Misc. Recommendation: Mesmeric Fiend / Toll of the Invasion - Both snatch your opponents best cards and leave a body, which can be a Mirror-Breaker. (Although Mesmeric Fiend is a bit risky)

Love the idea, fan of drain meccanics too +1.

I know you made this deck with spare cards, but if you ever wanted to look for an upgrade here's my thoughts:

Firstly, you nave a high curve, so you could afford to waste time with tapped lands. Bojuka Bog is always nice to have in the mainboard. Or some Barren Moor given the deck's draw rate.

Marauding Blight-Priest is generally (Hello Lightning Bolt ) a straight up better Epicure of Blood . Less survivable but lets you waste less time you could use to play curses later.

(My opinion) I really don't like Quag Sickness for its cmc. I think you could use instead 3 Cast Down for some instant speed scenario, but if you want to keep the enchantment theme for the joy of Gary I'd find something better, like Death's Approach .

Looking at the sideboard, same goes for Unholy Indenture . Unfortunately, that awsome Seb McKinnon art is terribly wasted. Cards like Demonic Vigor do the same job.

As I said, I know you are using spare cards, but if you like my ideas maybe you could gather some of these among tour friends. That's one of pauper's advantages after all. Have fun!

Very cool deck idea. Does anything from from MH2 or Forgotten Realms make the cut? Nykthos Paragon , Trelasarra, Moon Dancer and Cleric Class seem strong. Attended Healer from ZNR could be great here too.

Have you thought about using the drain effects like Dina, Soul Steeper or Marauding Blight-Priest or do you prefer the Pridemate effects for aggro and Tayam Synergy?

I like the list. It has real potential.

I'm not a fan of doomed and null priest unless they are cheating out big creatures - the only big cleric I can think of is Mikaeus, the Unhallowed. Resurrecting multiple other clerics can be done in easier, less disruptable ways.

Many of the most powerful sideboard cards (mainboardable in many metas) are clerics, and that means that with 75 cards including sideboard, something that can really kick butt in a metagame is out there.

The option to ressurect Children of Korlis, Containment Priest, Ethersworn Canonist, Fiend Hunter, Grand Abolisher, Leonin Arbiter, Auriok Champion, Leonin Relic-Warder, Remorseful Cleric, Sanctifier en-Vec, Sin Collector - there are too many great clerics for this not to become something. Even stuff like Orzhov Pontiff and True Believer has seen sideboard play in the kind of creature-led deck it would be.

You have access to all the tools from soul sisters, with Soul Warden also getting Marauding Blight-Priest as another piece. Vizier of Remedies threatens a combo line. Efficient 1 drops means that tools like Orzhov Charm, Ranger-Captain of Eos and Proclamation of Rebirth look a lot better. Order of Whiteclay and oddities like Hanweir Militia Captain  Flip it offer more options than you'd expect, and it only takes one good interaction with them to turn them into powerhouse engines.

All of that before looking at w/b getting the best removal in the game means that some variant of this list will make a dent in a major tournament, once someone figures it out.
