If I use Sorin, Lord of Innistrad to destroy Deepglow Skate and any two other planeswalkers, would the planeswalkers come back with double loyalty counters?

Putting it here in case it’s easier to remember: might want to swap Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord for Sorin, Lord of Innistrad

Karlov of the Ghost Council is an INSANE card for a deck like this when you combo it with ajani. its pricey, but kicks major ass. I'd look into cheaper dual lands like Caves of Koilos and Temple of Silence . They both work pretty well for me

Vizkopa Guildmage huge in decks like this. I might consider replacing some Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord with Sorin, Lord of Innistrad for the vampire and life gain theme.

Kaya's Guile and Mortify are super strong here too. perhaps consider ditching Vampire of the Dire Moon and Vizkopa Vampire for Gifted Aetherborn or Vampire Nighthawk since those 1 drops are easy targets for cheap removal.

Rhox Faithmender , Cradle of Vitality and Dawn of Hope all great additions as well

legendofa: Quality should always be your guide. If you were using all 10 planeswalkers on a single (non-superfriends theme) like for example if they all pumped out tokens and then buffed them, that would be fine. But here you effectively have:

Looking at the planeswalkers, that's kind of what I see here. And don't get me wrong, repeatability is great. But you have to weigh that up against mana cost and frequency of repeatability.

Wow, Urge to Feed is definitely getting added! I'll swap out Sorin, Grim Nemesis for Sorin, Lord of Innistrad as I was only using Grim Nemesis for his ultimate, really. Not a good idea. Thanks for the recommendations, once I do my edits I'll go check out your deck, I like the sound of it.

Neat Build! +1

I use Urge to Feed as a pseudo-destroy in the Vampire Deck I built alongside a friend for a special Halloween competition a few years back (it's called Sorin's Lifelink Legions on my profile if you want to take a look).

This could be an alternative to not using Go for the Throat as you mention in the description; plus it's a counter on any number of creatures you want in a Vampire build which can be used very strategically; particularly if you have any Vampire token-generation (which I see a little of, maybe could add some more with Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or something).

Nice to see some of those other recommendations from your other deck make this list though! Very solid choices and I see a lot of similarities in our builds even though the theme is somewhat different.

I don't know about this, but in situations where the card says "return to the battlefield (Athreos, Shroud-Veiled, Luminous Broodmoth, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad), would Kunoros, Hound of Athreos cancel that?

Change log after not investing in this list in a while:

-1 Ashen Rider +1 Path to Exile

-1 Boreas Charger +1 Cruel Celebrant

-1 Sadistic Hypnotist +1 Altar of Dementia

In terms of creature swaps, Ashen Rider is incredibly strong and a hard cut, but I’d rather have the cheap efficiency of Path. Archon of Justice costs less and is about as good.

Boreas Charger has always kinda sucked even if I get double death triggers, so in goes Celebrant as an additional wincon.

Sadistic Hypnotist is pretty good, but Altar costs less, can sacrifice at instant speed, and is a wincon.

-1 Worn Powerstone +1 Talisman of Hierarchy

Just an upgrade to a mana rock. I’d rather curve into Teysa on turn two than have an extra colorless mana a turn later.

-1 Dark Prophecy +1 Village Rites

-1 Martyr's Bond +1 Bastion of Remembrance

This list really badly needed a way to just draw cards instantly; we have plenty of card draw value engines. I decided Dark Prophecy competed with Necro for its slot and got the cut.

Martyrs Bond I never really saw while playing, but I’d rather have another drain effect than something that stalls the game.

-1 Sorin, Lord of Innistrad +1 Grim Tutor

Sorry, foil original print Sorin, he’s a little slow to generate tokens for his mana cost. The deck needed a fourth tutor to more consistently pull together its combos anyway, and Grim is a spicy recent reprint.

-1 Orzhov Guildgate +1 Brightclimb Pathway  Flip

-1 Swamp +1 Silent Clearing

And just some upgrades in the manabase. Overall, can’t wait to see how this list can perform even better!
