If you're going to go for a similar creatures to what you already have in your deck currently. My top pick is

4x Vampire of the Dire Moon

I'd keep 4x Gifted Aetherborn and 2x-4x Vampire Nighthawk as well. That would give you 10-12 creatures with deathtouch and lifelink.

Another card out that list I like is Arrogant Bloodlord. It only costs 3 mana and it's a 4/4.

Okay well my suggestions are not so crazy...

I think the only thing that needs work is your creatures and getting rid of your artifacts and maybe one land as well.

So you'd have a total of at least 20 creatures. I'm not saying you need 20 or more creatures to be a good deck in legacy.

The only creature I like currently in your deck is Gifted Aetherborn. I like it because it is a good creature for the mana cost.

This is a list of vampire cards for you to consider.

Knight of the Ebon Legion

Vampire of the Dire Moon

Blood Artist

Bloodghast

Cordial Vampire

Legion Vanguard

Arrogant Bloodlord

Captivating Vampire

Bloodline Keeper  Flip

Sangromancer

Bishop of the Bloodstained

Vampire Nocturnus

Too many lands. Cut 3-4.

Ajani's Mantra is bad.

Ajani's Welcome isn't needed here in my opinion, if you really want this kind of effect put in Soul's Attendant since it gives you life off of Cleric of Life's Bond. I probably wouldn't add either though.

Boon Reflection way too slow. Definitely cut this. Same with Beacon of Immortality .

Brave the Sands probably not worth it.

Cradle of Vitality . Even worse than Boon Reflection. Costs 4 mana to get it out and then requires a 2 mana investment everytime for not that much payoff.


You need 1 drops. Vampire of the Dire Moon , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Inquisition of Kozilek .

Additional vampires: Gifted Aetherborn , Gatekeeper of Malakir , Drana's Emissary

Need some removal: Path to Exile , Fatal Push , Vindicate

Right off the cuff I would cut Blood Seeker , Voracious Vampire and Brave the Sands as they dont help you win with your life shenanigans. Keeping 1 copy of Blood Seeker may be decent against token or creature decks but that's up to you. Blood Burglar to me seems like a sub-optimal version of Vampire of the Dire Moon and Tithe Drinker so I would swap those. If you have the wallet, Exquisite Blood makes you go infinite with Vito so its an easy swap with Boon Reflection and Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is insane, especially when combined with cards like Champion of Dusk and Sanctum Seeker . Indulging Patrician and Silversmote Ghoul is a path if you can consistently get to 3 life each turn. Some copies of Fatal Push or Heartless Act may do you some good because spot removal is nice in modern. You could also be spicy and go Abiding Grace + some decent one drops like Knight of the Ebon Legion , Indulgent Aristocrat , Guul Draz Assassin , Guul Draz Vampire and Vampire Cutthroat . That aside, Nighthawk Scavenger , Blood Artist , Legion's Landing  Flip, Legion Lieutenant , and Drana's Emissary seem like they would fit nicely. I might cut some Cleric of life's bond as well, because its almost purely overshadowed by faster growing cards like Ajani's Pridemate and Sprite Dragon atm. I might also consider cutting 1 Boon Reflection and 1-2 lands to fit the mana curve a little more nicely. A lot of these are just pure suggestions, so the choice on what path is up to you. All in all, very cool deck. I am a big fan of trying to make Vito work, I hope you are successful in your journey and I hope this helps.

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

I agree that making the base creature more consistent and having the Lord-effect be separate would be more in line with how we've seen Lords in the past.

Perhaps something like:

Revision Show

The lord effect is already a very powerful one, that most players will take full use of and put vampires with +4/+4, haste and menace down from that point forward.

There are 13 vampires with MV <=3 that have lifelink - like Vampire of the Dire Moon . Of course you can utilize cards like Whip of Erebos to counteract the life payment as well. That is hardly an issue in black, if you want to deal with it.

So the cost of the lord effect is relatively easy to neutralize and the benefit is definitely strong. I think that would suffice for a strong Commander with a unique identity.
