Creature — Vampire
Ascend (If you control ten or more permanents, you get the city's blessing for the rest of the game.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, if you have the city's blessing, reveal the top card of your library and put it into your hand. Each opponent loses X life and you gain X life, where X is that card's converted mana cost.

Twilight Prophet Discussion

The main areas I see that are missing a little something are protection, card draw, and finishers.
Boros Charm, Flawless Maneuver, and Scapegoat in addition to Teferi's Protection to protect your board. If this deck gets wiped and you end up in topdeck mode, your chances of winning drop significantly.
Card draw also helps you bounce back from boardwipes and allows you to continue applying pressure. Necropotence/Twilight Prophet are obviously your best answers to this but they're pricey. Dark Prophecy, Greed, Champion of Dusk, and Herald's Horn are all good options here.
Shared Animosity is a. Very efficient finisher in tribal strategies. Reconnaissance 100% deserves a spot also. Recon allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have EVERY one of those creatures untapped and ready to block/deter attacks by the end of combat. It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after combat damage is dealt for pseudo vigilance, and it even untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt making combat entirely one-sided. Creatures are considered 'attacking' until the end of combat step ends and during this step (and after first strike) priority passes around the table giving you a window to untap everyone.

I've been considering Urza's Incubator and it was in the maybeboard until recently. I go back and forth on it simply because it's not the most exciting card for me to play despite it's powerful effect. It is out of my price range but I happen to already have a copy, so it may very well end up in the deck
You are absolutely right that I need more card draw. I don't love Underworld Connections because it can only be used once a turn (at least in this deck).
I've been a little paranoid about Phyrexian Arena ever since I saw someone die to it. I know it's a little silly, but I like having full control over if/when I spend life which is why, even if they cost more life, Arguel's Blood Fast Flip and Greed are my preferred card draw sources that I need to make room for. I'm just agonizing over what to take out to fit them in.
I already have some idea what I should remove, but first I want to playtest more and I haven't been able to play MtG in some time.
Twilight Prophet is an amazing card and should be in this deck yesterday, but it is rather expensive so I am waiting for a day it will hopefully cost less.
Thank you for commenting!

Urza's Incubator saves you a ton of mana when casting your army; not exactly a budget card but then again, it's a staple in most tribal decks. Also, you might want to get some more card draw options in here . Options that come to mind are Underworld Connections, Phyrexian Arena and Twilight Prophet (already in your maybeboard).

SpecimeN87. Thanks for posting on a few of my decks! While I agree with the Reyhan/Ishai suggestions, I'm not sure either of these would make the cut due to keeping the avg. cmc super low to the ground and competitive (and tbh, somewhat out of a personal bias towards planeswalkers in edh).
I think I'm good on mill and card draw but want to try Twilight Prophet at some point. For recursion without using my creature cast for turn, I run Animate Dead and eventually want to run Necromancy over Dance of the Dead (or possibly both) whenever I run into a copy locally.

I'd cut the bad stuff and lean 100% into the enemy lifegain theme. This means up to 4 Tainted Remedy plus 4x Kavu Predator , and cut Idyllic Tutor , Serrated Scorpion , Twilight Prophet , Gonti's Machinations , Roiling Vortex , etc.
I know Blessed Alliance and Rest for the Weary are used with Tainted Remedy, but the best cards with Remedy are ones that have a "drawback" that involves your opponent gaining life and Remedy/Kavu turn that drawback into an advantage. I see you already have Wall of Shards and Grove of the Burnwillows , which are classics. Some other ones are Oust , Fiery Justice , Solitude / Condemn , Devour Flesh with Nature's Claim for the sideboard. Alms Beast is also funny.

Reconnaissance (read my deck description for an ideas of just how good this card is here - link below), Shared Animosity , and Mirror Entity deserves spots as finishers. Purphoros, God of the Forge is amazing as well and each vamp you cast domes each opponent for 4. Drop Door of Destinies though as it does absolutely nothing for your current board, costs too much for aggro, and requires gas to fuel it after it comes into play.
I'd also recommend more board protection like Boros Charm , Flawless Maneuver and/or a personal favorite of mine... Scapegoat . Scapegoat allows you to immediately redeploy and get your eminence triggers again while pseudo dodging exile, -X-X, sacrifice, and other hard to dodge wraths (it also doubles as a finisher with Purphoros out). I'd rather sac a token than end up in topdeck mode.
Lastly is card draw which you'll want a lot of. Necropotence , Twilight Prophet , Phyrexian Arena , Greed , and/or Dark Prophecy all work good here. Herald's Horn and Oversold Cemetery both will put cards in your hand as well.

My Tergrid, God of Fright Flip deck really takes a toll on my own life points so I'm looking for a couple good ways to gain life. Currently I have Twilight Prophet , Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Crypt Ghast but I'd like one or two more solid ways to recoup life. Any suggestions?
