carpecanum Those are some great suggestions. I’m definitely going to put Vault of the Archangel and Palace Siege in there, and the the others are also very interesting. Thank you kindly good sir

Thief of Blood, Vault of the Archangel, Demonspine Whip

Anything that lets you recast your vampires would be good. Palace Siege etc.

Depending on who you play you might need a couple things to give your boss hexproof or shroud. maybe protection from a color.

Erebos, God of the Dead is a solid recommendation especially now that I've removed Tainted Remedy.

Bloodchief Ascension would be a good consideration if I had ways to force discard and a lot of destroy effects. As it is the only ones I have are No Mercy and Vault of the Archangel.

I'd put in Oath of Kaya if I had more than just the one Planeswalker.

Hi osiczym, thanks for the comment and sorry for my late reply. I haven't been active on tapped out as much lately.

Totem armor is a great idea and I think I'll buy a few the next time I'm ordering cards. I've looked at totem armor for another one of my decks (Bestowing Auramancer) but I never thought of playing those cards in this deck. Sadly, Felidar Umbra isn't modern legal which is something we're trying to stick to in the group I play with. (Gift of Orzhova is, however, a very powerful lifelink-card as an alternative). Mammoth Umbra is also great, but as you've already said, its CMC is probably too high to really work in this deck. So I think I'd go for either Hyena Umbra or Eland Umbra, not sure which one yet though. Frist strike is good but not as necessary when your creatures are indestructible. The +4 to toughness is probably the best choice since it can help with survival if you don't draw an indestructible card.

Paladin en-Vec is a good card, I'm personally not very fond of playing protection from color, especially in multi-coloured decks as I sometimes accidentally misplay. But that's just my personal preference. I play Knight of Grace and Knight of Malice because I love how their card art matches up, but they could easily be changed for other knights. Vault of the Archangel is a good card and it fits the deck well. Land cards are something I need to get better at overall when it comes to my own deck building skills. I usually just throw in a bunch of basic lands together with a few dual lands and then leave it at that.

Thanks again for taking a look at my deck and for offering suggestions!

Change Notes:

Out: Cabal Coffers & Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
In: Brightclimb Pathway  Flip & Savai Triome
The Cabal Coffers + Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth combo is really hard to pull off in a 3 color deck. Especially, with this mana base in mardu. Therefore, I decided to cut both lands and replace them with some newer which are a great addition to this deck.

Out: Merciless Eviction
In: Kindred Dominance
Even though this board wipe will cost one more mana, it will be worth it, since it's going to be totally one sided for the most part. I'll also add more single target removal for other permanents, to make up for this change. I decided on this swap, since I tend to not use Merciless Eviction, because it will wipe my board and exile my great vampire lords aswell.

Out: Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord
In: Nighthawk Scavenger
This plainswalker didn't do much in the last games for me. Most of my vampires are so cheap, that his ult didn't help me mana wise at all. His other effects are nice, but not particular amazing. The newly printed Nighthawk Scavenger on the other hand is going to be a real powerhouse. It's a better version of Vampire Nighthawk, 90% of the time and I really like both of them.

Out: Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose
In: Eldrazi Monument
Vito didn't help this deck much at all. I think he is a trap. I also noticed, that I don't run Exquisite Blood anyway, so this combo isn't an option currently, either. This deck's biggest problem are boardwipes, so I think Eldrazi Monument will be a great addition in order to protect my army of bloodsuckers.

Out: Fellwar Stone
In: Idol of Oblivion
Ramp isn't as big of a problem. Even though we are in Mardu, most of the cards are low costed. So I can efford to take out one piece of ramp. Card Draw on the other hand is often a problem. Therefore, I'll test Idol of Oblivion, since it only costs 2 mana and can draw you one additional card each turn, most of the time.

Out: Slayers' Stronghold
In: Myriad Landscape
I noticed that I might cut some utility lands aswell, because sometimes I only draw those and I'm stuck with colorless mana. Since I prefer Vault of the Archangel's effect over Slayers' Stronghold, I'll cut the later one. Myriad Landscape can function as ramp and help me to get more basics out of my deck, which can be nice if I'm in topdeck mode.

Out: Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord
In: Nullpriest of Oblivion
Another plaineswalker I'm going to cut, since it doesn't help me with my gameplan, most of the time. The only thing I use is his ult, to recure one vampire at best. Nullpriest of Oblivion can do the same, but is a vampire on it's own and can also come down way earlier if we need damage or more tokens.

Out: Battlefield Forge & Swamp
In: Spectator Seating & Vault of Champions
Not much to say, changing two lands for probably better ones who came in recent months.

Very nice deck! Very original and has a main interesting theme that looks like working well!

My suggestions: I would definitely swap Demonic Vigor for any enchantment with Totem Armor. I’d say preferably Felidar Umbra since lifelink is very powerful addon, but also Eland Umbra to make knights even more though or Hyena Umbra if you really need it for 1 mana (cause you already have fs in most creats). I don’t think you have mana for Mammoth Umbra but if so it really fits your deck giving vigilance and +3 buff. Anyway - totem armor is much better than Demonic because the enchanted creature remains on the table instead of going back to your hand.

Other interesting cards: Paladin en-Vec (I played it couple times and it is just a good card but not sure if it fits your deck well), Vault of the Archangel (you are looking for a good land and combo lifelink + deathtouch (from land) + first strike + vigilance (from your cards) sounds awesome

Last two, I promise: Kessig Wolf Run and Vault of the Archangel for aggro deck strategies.
