Sanguine Bond Discussion

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.

I love Athreos and am excited to see a build around him. My thoughts would be that Land Tax is probably not going to net much value in a deck with 40 lands. And your creature count may be low to make good use from Athreos.

Question, if you have Vampiric Tutor in hand, what do you tutor for? I might suggest exploiting Exquisite Blood with Sanguine Bond and Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose. Torment of Hailfire would do work in a deck like this.

There is not really enough life gin to make Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose useful, but he is a vampire, a Sanguine Bond, and gives Konrad lifelink. He also only targets a single opponent. There are plenty of other cards with similar effects, but they also might not be too useful here.

I'm gonna put down a wall of text, so apologies in advance. Personally, I love Athreos, I run him in a commander deck myself. He relies a lot on draining your opponents through the attrition of your own creatures, as more often then not he is very hard to get rid of. Some more removal will help, but look at things like Abyssal Gatekeeper, Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner, since even if you sac them to their own effect, there is a good chance of sending them back to your hand. Some wider discard effects such as Dark Deal can help, even though they're not attached to creatures being able to drop one in a large game with Waste Not out can net you a lot of benefits. Throwing in a few just good things like Rise of the Dark Realms, Dictate of Erebos, Grave Pact, all synergize with your deck, and can usually punish your opponents. Bone Miser is just another copy of Waste Not, The Haunt of Hightower seems to be on theme and I'd definitely bump up your mana rock number. In terms of a combo win, Sanguine Bond/Exquisite Blood just need a single loss of life somewhere, while Mindcrank/Bloodchief Ascension function well independently within your deck as well as combo off together. I have no idea what your budget is but I hope this helps.

Love the concept. My mind immediately goes to mono-black lifegain of some sort, abusing "when you gain life, target opponent loses that much life" like Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose, Sanguine Bond, and Defiant Bloodlord. I built a golgari deck that runs more like a selesnya deck with the concept.Tree of Life. I love my white cards but for the reasons you described never compiled them mono-white. A challenge worth pursuing.

OK here are some cards to look at based on what you like:

Quag Vampires, Vampire of the Dire Moon, Kalastria Highborn, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Bloodthirsty Aerialist

Not sure what your budget is, but Yawgmoth, Thran Physician always goes well in vampire decks since +1/+1 counters are always a thing. You can pair that with Spread the Sickness or Grim Affliction.

Additionally, Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood form a pretty nice combo in lifelink decks.

Also, Sol Ring is not legal in anything but commander. Dark Ritual is only legal in vintage, legacy, commander (not modern or standard). If this is just to play casually, that won't matter. I just tend to build format legal decks just incase lol.
