Interesting Idea. Add Exquisite Blood to infinite ping opponents with Sanguine Bond or Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose . I would add Fountain of Renewal , Nyx-Fleece Ram and or Ajani's Mantra to gain life each turn. You don't need to ramp if you include Chaplain's Blessing , Renewed Faith or even Tavern Swindler . These can make Licia cost only .

Coward_Token, the fact that WotC is not treating Exquisite Blood the same as Sanguine Bond is very annoying, considering that one card is far more expensive than is the other, and that a creature version of EB would make perfect sense. I understand that they would wish to avoid an infinite combo with Dina, but there have been many other opportunities to reprint that card, or to make a creature version of it, so I hope that WotC does that, soon.

It is late where I am, so I will not comment on every card from the black/green deck, but I am very glad to see Greed reprinted, again, since it needs to be kept available and affordable. However, why did WotC reprint Sanguine Bond , again, when Exquisite Blood needs a reprint far more dearly?

BrickSkipper yeah I’m still in my early stages with him. I’ve had a bunch of black cards sitting around and I thought he looked fun. I have the Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond combo so I’m not against infinite combos so I may put in Aetherflux Reservoir or at least try it out. Ty for the tip

i have made a mono black vampire tribal / voltron deck it may be useful for vampire idea's and other painful black cards as i see a lot of cards in this deck that don't really add much value for you. Drana MTGO

I would also add Cathars' Crusade and Intangible Virtue to give some extra damage to tokens, Harsh Mercy and Kindred Dominance would be a good add. Blood Tribute is always a good card to run especially if you add Wound Reflection , Phyrexian Arena for pure card draw Chromatic Lantern for mana fixing, Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond for an infinite combo / win con. reanimation id add Patriarch's Bidding . life gain id add Exsanguinate . if you can get your hands on one then id recommend Cavern of Souls

bloodborn on my attemp at a deck..

So, since you are a new player, there are two common archetypes going on in your current build: aristocrats and combo.

Arisocrats makes a lot of creatures and sacrifices them for a benefit, usually either damage to opponents. Zulaport Cutthroat and Blood Artist are common pay-offs for this strategy. If you wanted to pursue this strategy remove the combo cards like Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood .

Combo usually looks for a combiniation of cards that win the game when played together. Sanguine Bond + Exquisite Blood is an example of this. One makes you gain life when people lose life, and the other makes others lose when you gain. If you wanted that aristocrats flavor or murdering your own creatures you can include Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Triskelion which has a combo that does infinite damage if you remove 2 counters from Triskelion to deal 2 damage to the opponent, Triskelion is now a 2/2, remove the last counter to do 1 damage to itself and it becomes a 1/1 with 1 damage on it, dies, and comes back. If you want to go this route take out the aristocrats cards that have sacrifice synergy.

I agree with trying to capitalize on creatures a little more than noncreatures since you already have Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Liliana Vess caring about them to one degree or another. I think the best creatures to look into would be vampires since you already have a decent shell for them. Gatekeeper of Malakir or Feast of Blood could swap for Geth's Verdict , Gifted Aetherborn or Nighthawk Scavenger could supplement Vampire Nighthawk , Pulse Tracker or Vampire of the Dire Moon could replace Mardu Shadowspear , Blood Artist could replace Cutthroat, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose provides redundancy for Sanguine Bond , Pawn of Ulamog can provide sac fodder for cards like Ob Nix or Viscera Seer , Nullpriest of Oblivion is a flexible way to reanimate beefy monsters like Sangromancer , Vampire Nocturnus , Malakir Bloodwitch , Butcher of Malakir , or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . Finally, while not a vampire, I'd rather play Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor if you can't afford the OG 1-2 cost tutors. BTW, I'm not saying you should run all of these cards; just run what fits your playstyle.

Maybe, but an overwhelmingly large amount of the black ways to do so require some payment of life. So maybe the black one will triple lifegain, making it actually scary because black has a plethora of uses for that, also with Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose and Sanguine Bond . That would also clear white for the token tripling suggested earlier.
