Vampire of the Dire Moon

Creature — Vampire

Deathtouch (Any amount of damage this deals to a creature is enough to destroy it.)

Lifelink (Damage dealt by this creature also causes you to gain that much.)

Sudden Spoiling and Hero's Downfall are not playable modern cards, the removal has to be more efficient than that. Staple BR removal options would be 3-4 Lightning Bolt 2-4 Fatal Push 1-2 Molten Collapse 0-1 Angrath's Rampage. I'd also cut the Blightning.

Vampire of the Dire Moon kinda boring generic 1 drop. I assume Tinybones, the Pickpocket is way out of your budget, the cards not super great in here anyways.

Hooded Blightfang is honestly not the best card but I mean if you're playing deathtouch tribal then you should probably play it. Also interesting you chose BR because most deathtouch decks I see are BG and use Fynn, the Fangbearer. Green also gives you some better 1 drop deathtouchers like Gnarlwood Dryad and Narnam Renegade, and also a 2 drop Chevill, Bane of Monsters. Also 3 drop Glissa Sunslayer.

Zoyowa Lava-Tongue 2 drop deathtoucher. Nighthawk Scavenger 3 drop.

YamishiTheWickedOne further testing of the historic build I replaced the 1 drops that filled in for seer with Vampire of the Dire Moon and it’s worked incredibly well with Vito and another addition Vein Ripper. Once I can get 2, they’ll be replacing vraan. Vraan has been a decent card, but ripper is naughty. 3 games dropped on turn 3 via sorin, 2 snap conceded. I know we loose the scry ability with seer, but built in removal and lifelink for 1 seems like a stronger play.

How much are you keeping this deck up to date? I had a very similar inspiration, and the last few sets have added some interesting new toys. If you want to compare notes, mine's at Above such mortal concerns. (I did allow myself the luxury of Cavern of Souls, Voldaren Estate, and Blood Celebrant, so it's able to cast Edgar in a pinch, but the spirit's still there.)

How well do cards like Vampire of the Dire Moon and Changeling Outcast work for this deck?

DarkKiridon thank you for the suggestions. I really wish Stromkirk Captain was Pioneer legal as he is an old favorite of mine. I definitely plan to add Fatal Push to my deck in place of Fake Your Own Death. I am going to keep looking at what vampire to swap my Sanguinary Mage for as it just recently replaced Furyblade Vampire. I am considering Child of Night (old fav) or Vampire of the Dire Moon or Vampire Cutthroat or Indulgent Aristocrat. Sanguinary mage isn't the right fit though. I am also considering Falkenrath Perforator as it is a more guaranteed way to ensure my opponent takes damage so I can trigger Vampire Socialite when I play vampires in my 2nd main phase. The lifelink will help ensure my opponent a quick life drain from Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose.

Stromkirk Captain, Dusk Legion Zealot, or Cemetery Gatekeeper over Sanguinary Mage. Also Vampire of the Dire Moon is good too. Henrika Domnathi  Flip might fit in here. Your mana base is weird, but that's just my opinion. :)

Fatal Push, Infernal Grasp, Cast Down, Terminate, Dreadbore for other removal suggestions.

These are some other cards to consider for the deck and theme. I would suggest using a 24/36 ratio (24 lands to 36 non lands). This gives you the best probability to draw a land every third or fourth turn, which will let you work your way up the mana curve. You should also strive for a nice bell curve on the mana graph if possible. A couple of 1 drops, a few 2 drops, a handful of 3's, a handful of 4's and then back down to a couple of 5 or 6's. Anything more costly than that can be hard to play or not quick enough for some games. And a couple of "responses" is good, ie "destroy target creature" or "exile target enchantment" Probably don't need more than 4-6 in a 60 card deck. I would pick 3-4 really important creatures, like Vito and indulging patrician and bloodthirsty aerialist, for the deck's theme and include 4 copies of them (except legendary creatures since you are only allowed to have one of them on the board at a time and you don't always want to draw a second one to just hold in your hand forever, so maybe drop it to 3(?) or keep at 4 if you think it's important enough). Then pick some "support" cards that help the theme along. In this case stuff like your card draw vampire would be a good choice. A couple of card draw type cards is great. For really expensive costing cards, 6+ mana, they should be your finishers. Once they hit the board you should be on your way to victory, so hopefully just 1 or 2 copies is enough. For a life gain theme, your defiant bloodlord or sanguine bond, is perfect. For a +1/+1 counter theme, you may want to look at splashing red for those vampires instead of white. I would focus on one or the other to streamline the deck to help you narrow down your choices for cards. I've mostly included the vampires with life gain/drain mechanics, but I can look into the +1/+1 counters vampires if you want as well. I like the vampire themes! A powerful tribe in magic!

It looks great! For me, this is one deck where I am not sure a Mana Crypt would justify itself. The more of those 1-drops you add, the less useful colorless mana becomes.

Vampire of the Dire Moon is great, and so is Guul Draz Assassin. Extra power in your tiny vamps is fun. Dusk Legion Duelist is good, and so is Duskborne Skymarcher. Flying on a 1-drop is cool.

If you can manage to squeeze in a bit of a snack for your vampires, Elas il-Kor, Sadistic Pilgrim is low mana value and bleeds for your vampires while cushioning your life total!
