Tavern Swindler Discussion

Faithless Salvaging tech: If you cast it while hellbent and then play what you drew, it's like casting a cheap Divination spread over two turns in red. Please, contain your arousal.

Master Transmuter is hot (however she is making me think of the Borg Queen).
I always thought Tavern Swindler was smiling, now I can see it's... something else.
Sage of Mysteries has a chain in the water.

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 .

So, even with Vitos ability Dark Confidant seems like a bad fit for this deck. With 12 cards with 5+ cmc you could be in for a big slap in face every upkeep. Additionally, you have some underwhelming cards like Tavern Swindler and Foreboding Fruit. Marauding Blight-Priest and perhaps Nullpriest of Oblivion would serve you better.

Love Tavern Swindler. Absolutely agree it fits right in with the "G" in LEGS.

If we can get more consistent early game life gain, then the combination of Speaker of the Heavens and Griffin Aerie can start generating a number of useful tokens. Although I really like Angel of Destiny it might be a little slow to reach a win-con.
I view Tavern Swindler and Feed the Swarm as the weaker cards in the deck that can be removed for 2 Light of Hope and 3 Speaker of the Heavens. If you are going to use Hagra Mauling Flip as a land, then you still need Heartless Act for some extra removal. I think that we probably still need to add some extra life gain.

I would personally replace:
Prism Ring for Trading Post - Could be very handy artifact in decks like this.
The Immortal Sun for Exquisite Blood - creates infinite loop with Vito and Sanguine Bond, but isnt cheap. I wouldnt bother with The Immortal Sun, unless your playgroup runs a lot of planeswalkers or you struggle with card draw (which shouldnt be a problem in mono-black.
The Haunt of Hightower - I would say you need either more discard or mill effects to get Hightower big.. Doom Whisperer seems to be much more useful.
Tavern Swindler - Its just gamble that doesnt seem to be worthy in a deck, where you can already get a lot of life by other cards. Bastion of Remembrance works as another aristocrat effect (Tortured Existence+Desecrated Tomb+Phyrexian Altar as infinite engine).
Dreadhorde Invasion - You dont use any other Amass effect cards and it takes 6 turns to make a 6/6 zombie with lifelink (which will last only until end of your turn), which is pretty meh. It would be good if you had some sacrifice cards, like Smothering Abomination, Village Rites, Diabolic Intent, etc. I would go for either Twilight Prophet or Bloodline Keeper Flip. Captivating Vampire could be useful aswell. With Carnival of Souls you could get a bit of ramp, but can backfire really hard, so its kinda risky.
Gifted Aetherborn - is pretty nice drop I guess, but feels kinda weak overall. Kalastria Highborn supports your mostly vampire creatures and can also drain your opponents.
Swiftfoot Boots - unless you want the haste, Whispersilk Cloak seems like a decent option. It cost more to cast and to equip, but makes your creature unblockable.
Drag to the Underworld - should do a good job, Oblivion Strike might be something to consider aswell. Or just Corrupt?
Some more cards that might be useful:
Call the Bloodline - discards useless cards and makes a 1/1 vampire token (once per turn).
Revenge of Ravens - decent defensive enchantment that could fit your lifesteal deck nicely.
Burnished Hart - slow ramp creature. BH also triggers your Dread Presence and Staff of the Death Magus.
Crypt Incursion, Suffer the Past - more graveyard hate and another life gain.
