Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord Discussion

Wow this...... really, really needs work. I hardly know where to start :/ sorry but almost everything here is outclassed. Your mana curve is a little on the heavy side and your lands suggest to me you're working with a nonexistent budget.
Start by cutting everything over 4 mana, drop Feast of Blood because that card is terrible, add 4 Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord, Fatal Push and 4 of either Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek or Duress. For what you're working with i'd just cut the red and run monoblack. 22+ swamps is much less clunky than lands that enter tapped.
Sorry, just being brutally honest.

Right on, I added the Fatal Push. After investing in Bloodghast, I decided to make it a little less budget, short of Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord (for now). I also temporarily added two Yahenni, Undying Partisan for both the haste and sac opportunity. I honestly am not sure if this card is good or not, but it does help with the 3 cmc part of my mana.

Do you ultimate Sorin, Vampire Lord often enough to be worth the slot? If not, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord might cool for getting out any of the Mana Value >3 vampires. He also includes some fun lifegain, too.

Right off the cuff I would cut Blood Seeker , Voracious Vampire and Brave the Sands as they dont help you win with your life shenanigans. Keeping 1 copy of Blood Seeker may be decent against token or creature decks but that's up to you. Blood Burglar to me seems like a sub-optimal version of Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tithe Drinker so I would swap those. If you have the wallet, Exquisite Blood makes you go infinite with Vito so its an easy swap with Boon Reflection and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is insane, especially when combined with cards like Champion of Dusk and Sanctum Seeker . Indulging Patrician and Silversmote Ghoul is a path if you can consistently get to 3 life each turn. Some copies of Fatal Push or Heartless Act may do you some good because spot removal is nice in modern. You could also be spicy and go Abiding Grace + some decent one drops like Knight of the Ebon Legion , Indulgent Aristocrat , Guul Draz Assassin , Guul Draz Vampire and Vampire Cutthroat . That aside, Nighthawk Scavenger , Blood Artist , Legion's Landing Flip, Legion Lieutenant , and Drana's Emissary seem like they would fit nicely. I might cut some Cleric of life's bond as well, because its almost purely overshadowed by faster growing cards like Ajani's Pridemate and Sprite Dragon atm. I might also consider cutting 1 Boon Reflection and 1-2 lands to fit the mana curve a little more nicely. A lot of these are just pure suggestions, so the choice on what path is up to you. All in all, very cool deck. I am a big fan of trying to make Vito work, I hope you are successful in your journey and I hope this helps.

thank you for the comment! i made this Edgar midrange deck for my friend (the Luke of the title) who is more into playing than deckbuilding. he bought the vampire precon and it was solid, but it never really could win in our group so i modified it for him. i knew for sure i did not want to go the super-aggro route because it just wouldn't make for fun games. honestly i forgot this was even a public deck, but i'm glad you found it and liked the build. your points are definitely well thought-out and i'm going to consider them! i especially think your point about Decree of Pain is right on, so i will probably replace that with Winds of Abandon . as for Necropolis Regent , it's definitely a good point but Luke notoriously loves putting +1/+1 counters on his creatures so i would have to think about that one before i replace it. however there are definitely some other fun higher CMC (oops i mean MV) vamps that could potentially replace that one. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord will definitely go into the maybeboard and i'll most likely have Luke slot it in and trial it sometime soon!

I appreciate the passion and work that was put into this primer and hope you get some more recognition and comments for the work you put into it.
My main concern with your deck is that card draw choices, besides skull clamp, are far too modest. Minions' Murmurs and Pact of the Serpent , are all as much or less mana than your current card draw choices and will draw significantly more cards than with your current card draw. As more of a midrange deck Phyrexian Arena is a fine but I would replace Sign in Blood , Night's Whisper , and Read the Bones as even in commander generally I personally think they are pretty weak cards.
Besides that, I just wanted to shout out Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord as I think an amazing card for Edgar Markov EDH in general as it has so much utility and flexibility for its mana cost. As well with the Sac outlets you have Living Death is an awesome card that has so much utility from a one-sided board wipe, to a game finisher with artist effects and Malakir Bloodwitch ETB.
PS: Curious is Necropotence not in your deck because it's not allowed in your playgroup or a similar reason?
You can check out my own personal primer I wrote here, and would be happy to get you thoughts

Honestly, this is one of the best midrange Edgar Markov decks I think all the card choices are good for a midrange deck the only thing I would change is I would not play Necropolis Regent because she does almost the same thing as playing Edgar but you could argue he is even better as he immediately can put counters on and attack right as he is put into play. I think for a midrange Edgar Markov deck Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is an incredible choice as he has so much utility and is extremely efficient at 3 mana. Second would reconsider Decree of Pain in general not that it's bad but is really just a good control card and that even in a midrange Edgar Markov you would probably much rather prefer one-sided board wipes that let you keep your boards than ones that let you get some cards out of it.
