Hey, nice midrange version, but consider some more one/two drop Vamps who can fit in with a midrange strategy? Two of them are in the maybeboard.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Voldaren Pariah
  • Deathbringer Liege
  • Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief
  • Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
  • Tithe Drinker

Midrange benefits from a good three drop consider more three drops? Drana, Liberator of Malakir is a good three drop Vamp, flying and pumps your attacking team of Vamps. Forerunner of the Legion is a three drop Vamp tutor and it's other ability is also good with eminence. Shared Animosity has a powerful repeatable effect for attacking Vamps. Painful Truths is a draw spell upgrade. Read the Bones is another draw spell upgrade.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Damnable Pact
  • Ambition's Cost
  • Teysa Karlov
  • Elenda, the Dusk Rose
  • Requiem Angel

Swords to Plowshares is handy efficient exile creature removal, a staple card of Commander. Boros Charm can at instant speed save your Vamp army from most board wipes and it's other modes are also relevant. The Talismans: Talisman of Conviction , Talisman of Hierarchy and Talisman of Indulgence are upgrades for the Signets because Talismans can be used the turn you play them to make mana (colorless or colored) without needing another mana source.

Cards to consider cutting for these:

  • Sangromancer
  • Kheru Bloodsucker
  • Rakdos Signet
  • Boros Signet
  • Orzhov Signet

Lands to consider adding:

Lands to cut for these:

  • Stone Quarry
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Terramorphic Expanse
  • 3x Plains
  • 1x Mountain

Hey, good start, but with Liliana as Commander consider expanding on the sacrifice theme? Sacrifice strategies with aristocrats can be good and powerful, but you need to commit to them with many sac outlets to make the payoffs for sacing creatures worth it. Cards such as Liliana herself, Pawn of Ulamog , Sifter of Skulls , Grim Haruspex , etc. are payoffs for sacing creatures, but they're lackluster without sac support.

Cards that are within your deck's budget to consider adding for sacrifice strategy:

Reanimation is a fine secondary strategy to use consider also expanding on it:

Other cards to consider adding:

You should consider Reliquary Tower to avoid hand flood, and Darksteel Ingot Instead of Boros Locket . Also, You should run all one mana +3/+x spells and Assault Strobe . Also feather is pretty color heavy so i would not use Mind Stone . Also why are you not using blink protection and Ajani's Presence ? Blink and return at the end of turn escapes pretty much all possible removals for feather ( Toxic Deluge Cyclonic Rift and edicts

Thanks for the suggestions B0effe

Reliquary Tower for Swamp looks like a easy update and will give me 2 anti discarding effects in case I don't get Venser's Journal out. I'm trying to keep the Black mana symbols since those count toward a couple of my drain effects Soul Burn , Consume Spirit , Drain Life .

I might consider swapping Thought Vessel in for Charcoal Diamond . Seems like a fair trade off, especially if I look to add Ad Nauseam .

Ad Nauseam , Cabal Coffers look like easy additions. Why so expensive Coffers???

I absolutely love the buyback of Slaughter in this deck so it's staying in. I am considering the swap of Go for the Throat for Vraska's Contempt though. I won't get to reanimate the creature but sometime it's better to permanently remove a problem.

Looks like fun! I would suggest to use Reliquary Tower and maybe even Thought Vessel , since you run some draw abilities, which can be devastating for your opponents if you don't have to discard down to a maximum handsize, e.g. with Necropotence or Necrologia .

In this regard, I would also suggest to use Ad Nauseam because (1) besides Necropotence it is as black as a black card can be, and (2) it serves well with your lifegain.

Further, although I fully get the idea of using lifegain to ensure your lifetotal while using, e.g., Erebos' draw ability, you may consider to run Platinum Angel . If you have angel on the battlefield and play Ad Nauseam at the end of opponent's turn, you may put your entire library into your hand. On your turn, you play Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond , gain +1 life = win the game.

I would also consider to use Vraska's Contempt over Slaughter and to use Murderous Cut over Go for the Throat .

Finally, that Cabal Coffers should most definitely be added to the deck, at least instead of Cabal Stronghold , as Coffers is simply just endlessly better.

Hey, looks good, but you left out Approach of the Second Sun in the deck list, the main wincon you want to use?

Unfortunately, Approach with rebound doesn't work to win you the game. A rebounded Approach is being cast from exile not from your hand. Because you must cast Approach from your hand to win as long as you did cast Approach any other way at any other point in a game. The extra turns and draw spells are good with rebound to draw seven cards deep to find Approach.

Reconnaissance is good as a repeatable way to remove Taigam from combat. After he attacks getting the rebound trigger for your spells you can take him out of combat, protecting him. This is helpful because Taigam doesn't have evasion and he has to attack to get the rebound trigger for your spells. Mother of Runes and Giver of Runes are repeatable protection and can give Taigam evasion by giving him protection from a color of a creature who's blocking him in combat. These cards can also protect Monastery Mentor who is by far the best prowess creature. Consider cutting several of the lackluster prowess creatures for more two drop mana rocks and draw spells? Getting Taigam onto the battlefield faster with ramp does much more with instant and sorceries.
