Valentin, Dean of the Vein
Legendary Creature — Vampire Warlock
If a nontoken creature an opponent controls would die, exile it instead. When you do, you may pay . If you do, create a 1/1 black and green Pest creature token with "When this creature dies, you gain 1 life. (Dying is being put into the graveyard from the battlefield. Tokens enter the graveyard before they cease to exist.)"

- Why doesn't Fealty to the Realm doesn't just goad?
- Why doesn't Gollum, Obsessed Stalker just say "...dealt combat damage by it..."?
I get that there's some nuance to not having the above (e.g. Helm of the Host on Gollum), but it seems minute.
Thankfully no Horsemanship on Rohan cards, AFAIK.
Boromir, Gondor's Hope: feels weird flavor-wise. The sea power thing again?
The faces in Lorien Revealed look more horrified than amazed
Call of the Ring is basically a more wrath-resistant Dark Confidant in decks with a black inclusive mana value <= 1, namely: Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh (with the proper partner), Ashnod, Flesh Mechanist (skulk + 1 base power means she can often attack safely for her trigger), Frodo, Sauron's Bane (obviously). Also Valentin, Dean of the Vein Flip, I guess.
Fall of Cair Andros: Man, Blasphemous Act was already overpowered. Gogo Rem Karolus, Stalwart Slayer (+ a haste source), the Army will probably be able to finish someone off on its own while you attack someone else with the rest of your creatures.
Rising of the Day: Randomly strictly Fervor, I actually don't like this.
Long List of Ents: Cute, but the amount of hoops you need to hop trough for one extra counter per turn feels pretty anti-climatic. But hey, if your proliferate an extra chapter counter onto this (or something) and you then cast a changeling (or something), it'll get two counters! Woho...
Quickbeam: Kinda feel like he should have haste?
Horn of Gondor: Even if it's non-free to activte, Human Krenko is pretty good.
Palantir of Orthanac: I feel people are overestimating this for the purpose of self-milling. After 2-3 counters in a graveyard deck, people are just going to let you have that free Preordain

Death-Nothing major just took Timmy's advice and made Soul Reap, Soul Reap 2 instead
Fate- Increased the mana cost and added Vigilance and Fear to the card, as most people fear their fate and fate never stops and is Always Watching and cannot be stopped
End- Just added a graveyard nuke to the final ability to have keep with the theme
Harvest- Made it a enchantment artifact, changed it's equip cost to also need to to exile two cards from your grave, added the Valentin, Dean of the Vein Flip effect from Nevermore on to this card and made it the three Death creatures (Death Fate and Nevermore) aren't hit by it bad effects. and made it an enchantment artifact so the final ability will always go off
Let me know what you think of the changes (the pictures will probably be update the day after this post has benn posted)

Nevermore seems insanely powerful and not for the reason you may think lol
And wouldn't Fate just have shroud?
In any case, I love the flavor of these cards. The art and the abilities work together very well. The syntax is a bit all over the place, but it's pretty easy to understand what the card is supposed to do so like always it's really not that big a deal. I love your designs, keep 'em coming! ^^

Looking good! As you're already running Plagiecrafter and Fleshbag Marauder, Merciless Executioner and Revel in Riches would be perfect additions. Spawning Pit is another great sac-outlet. Pest Infestation is a match made in heaven with Savra. In that regard, Valentin, Dean of the Vein Flip is very fitting, as well.

You… do know Wizards already did that, right? On Strixhaven, the 10 deans of the colleges are mdfc’d with the other dean of the college.
Anyway, carry on.

The Reality Chip should probably find a place in here, since it is an equipment, it's legendary, and it has a color for Mox Amber. It basically checks all the boxes. If you are able to equip it... it just helps a lot.
Here's some other legendary creatures that are half suggestions - Lavinia, Azorius Renegade could be a form of hate. If you wanted to be more combo oriented, Lazav, the Multifarious is a decent idea, since he lets you copy stuff in the grave still. Niambi, Esteemed Speaker lets you bluff being a control deck, while still playing him. Valki, God of Lies Flip just has decent value.

Swapped in 2 more Valentin, Dean of the Vein Flip, 2 more Daemogoth Titan, and 2 more Poet's Quill; Swapped for Culling Ritual and Rushed Rebirth, and updated sidebar. Fielding one Witherbloom Apprentice, might replace him with something lifelink.
LMK if I should take out Moldervine Reclamation, Sanguine Indulgence, and Village Rites (and lands) to make it standard format... feel free to suggest replacements. currently feeling Village Rites -> Deadly Dispute, Sanguine Indulgence ->??? Moldervine Reclamation -> Poet's Quill Moldervine Reclamation -> Essence Infusion
