TheVectornaut on Black and White - please help!

To stay more in black, I would consider some sort of vampire sacrifice, counters, and/or lifedrain strategy. Your black cards that could work well in such a deck would be Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Embodiment of Agonies , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Mortician Beetle , Souls of the Faultless , Castigate , Disentomb , Gerrard's Verdict , Revival / Revenge , Despark , and Grim Return . Most of the other black cards are at least playable as well. The only two I'd cut in most circumstances are Underworld Dreams and In Garruk's Wake . The former needs more build-around while the latter just costs too much to be a consistent boardwipe.

Cards I'd look at adding for such a build might be Gatekeeper of Malakir , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Sangromancer , Dictate of Erebos , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Victim of Night , Indulgent Aristocrat , Pawn of Ulamog , Grim Haruspex , Silversmote Ghoul , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Malakir Cullblade , Blood Artist , Urge to Feed , Feast of Blood , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Archangel of Thune , Cruel Celebrant , Drana's Emissary , Indulging Patrician , Malakir Bloodwitch , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanctum Seeker , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Pious Evangel  Flip.

As a side note, to go infinite with Sanguine Bond , Vizkopa Guildmage , or Vito, the card you need is actually Exquisite Blood which is unfortunately quite expensive.

Crypt Ghast and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth would be a good way to generate a bunch of mana in addition to getting lifegain triggers from extort! With any 2cmc commander Mox Amber is a decent ramp spell for 0! Also I saw Veinwitch Coven put in a lot of work at prerelease!

Bloodthirsty Aerialist and Scion of the Swarm also seems to gel really well with your deck, getting HUGE with lifegain triggers and also providing a big body for your commander's other ability! Something like Sanctum Seeker also seems like it'd work, doubling down on your commander's trigger.

Oathsworn Vampire also seems like it should go infinite somehow in your deck, I'm trying to find a way!

I don't know if I don't see it, but you have both the altar and Deathmantle in the deck, which also goes infinite with any creature that can make tokens, something like Grave Titan or anything with Fabricate like Marionette Master , which if you can make enough tokens can get you infinite ETBS as well as make your commander infinitely big!

You're also running both Aetherflux and Bolas's Citadel, you can make it an infinite with Sensei's Divining Top , where you cast it then do the draw trigger to put the top on top of the library, then cast it again, all while gaining life from the Resovior. Though running any combos comes down to preferance!

While a little more CMC Noxious Gearhulk Ikra Shidiqi, the Usurper and Savra, Queen of the Golgari all seem to be what you'd like in the deck! And if you lean into the sacrifice, Black Market can be another decent way to get a lot of tokens!

Hey, good start on a budget.

Cards to consider cutting to make 100 cards:

  • Beacon of Immortality
  • Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood
  • Vein Drinker
  • Defiant Bloodlord
  • Mirari
  • Grisly Spectacle
  • Archetype of Finality
  • Arvad the Cursed
  • Teysa Karlov
  • Captivating Crew
  • Bishop of Binding
  • Regal Bloodlord
  • Tempt with Immortality
  • Solar Blaze
  • Commander's Insignia
  • Congregate

The cuts to consider above will reduce the mana curve a lot, but consider reducing it even more by adding more low CMC Vamps: one drops and two drops? With Edgar you want an established battlefield of Vamps to attack before you cast him. Lower CMC Vamps gives you more Vamps on the battlefield because each one also creates a Vamp token. Edgar is the high CMC Vamp you want to cast more the than the others therefore you don't really need lots of other high CMC Vamps or even high CMC nonVamp cards.

Vamps to consider adding that are $1-$2 each, most are less than $1:

If your budget allows more then these tribal Vamps are powerful upgrades:


Some budget land upgrades for the manabase:

If interested I offer more advice. Good luck with your deck.

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.

Tried to make the deck a little bit more consistent and with a couple more draw and planeswalker cards. In addition, the creatures added give a bit more staying power and other abilities instead of just strictly attacking, although that's still the main mode of winning. Also went a bit more in on +1/+1 counters as well.

-1 Changeling Sentinel -1 Moonglove Changeling -1 Valiant Changeling -1 Undead Augur -1 Venom Sliver -1 King of the Pride -1 Winding Constrictor -1 Neoform -1 Tatyova, Benthic Druid -1 Vastwood Surge -1 Bloodline Keeper  Flip -1 Chromatic Lantern +1 Skyshroud Claim +1 Despark +1 Oath of Ajani +1 Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter +1 Kaya, Ghost Assassin +1 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver +1 Teferi, Time Raveler +1 Crystalline Crawler +1 Tendershoot Dryad +1 Twilight Prophet +1 Sanctum Seeker +1 Shalai, Voice of Plenty

I would say your weakest vampire right now is Sanctum Seeker there are cards that do just as much for less mana. 2 of The Ozolith is a pretty good number. You can sideboard one if you know the enemy has no artifact removal.

This can definitely compete, vampires have some pretty good cards

I feel like Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord and Vampire Nocturnus are the bee's knees in a mono black aggro deck. I'd instead cut Sanctum Seeker and Vampire of the Dire Moon to make room.

Instead of Vicious Conquistador and Gifted Aetherborn, what about Bloodghast and Viscera Seer? Between Sorin and seer this gives you a reasonable number of sac outlets to trigger Cordial Vampire and cheat extra power on the board. The scry also helps enable Vampire Nocturnus. Don't forget he can be cheated into play t3 with Sorin too, never underestimate cheating on mana.

The sideboard I'd add Duress over one of the removal spells as additional combo disruption, 3 Thoughtseize main seems ideal though
