YamishiTheWickedOne on Sexy Vampires

I should mention, I've been giving you advice under the assumption you're working with a limited budget. I bring this up because fetch lands like Marsh Flats, Verdant Catacombs, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta and Prismatic Vista are all extremely useful in vampires even if you're monocolor because they let you reuse Bloodghast up to twice per turn, they can force a shuffle to hopefully get Nocturnus active, and they thin your deck making it slightly more likely you'll draw what you need.

Aside from Thoughtseize and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, another expensive card is Cavern of Souls, because having mainboard countermeasures to blue decks is always a good thing.

Hey, well done so far at upgrading the precon on a budget.

Some suggestions to consider are how to improve the manabase and other ways to get black mana without Swamps. The amount of basic lands is backwards; there's more Swamps than Forests. Forests/green mana is much more important than Swamps/black mana because the majority of the Elves including one drops are green. By cutting some Swamps and adding more Forests or more Golgari dual lands you can make it more consistent in getting green mana to cast Elves. With less Swamps then Green Elves who can make black mana are helpful.

Woodland Chasm is budget and Overgrown Tomb is expensive are lands that Verdant Catacombs or Wood Elves can search for.

Good luck with your deck.

Neat tribe to build around. Depending on the budget you’ve allotted for this deck, there are obvious upgrades to your mana base—lands like Overgrown Tomb or Verdant Catacombs , or the Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth / Yavimaya, Cradle of Growth would all help drastically speed up and smooth out play.

Most of all though I’d be remiss if I didn’t recommend Pyre of Heroes . This will permit you to sift through your entire selection of ooze creatures to field progressively stronger ones ahead of curve.

Hey, consider Sol Ring ? It's a staple mana rock in Commander. Consider less Swamps and more Golgari dual lands? Green mana is much more important than black. 11 Swamps really reduces the consistency of having a green source turn one for a green one drop mana dork. You don't want to draw all Swamps and no Forests.

You can speed up game play and help color fixing by adding more dual lands that can ETB untapped:

Others:

Several of these lands could replace lands that always ETB tapped: Foul Orchard , Golgari Guildgate , Jungle Hollow , Golgari Rot Farm . Elves of Deep Shadow is very helpful since can make black mana. Deathrite Shaman if playing multiplayer since can exile lands from opponents graveyards.

Good luck with your deck.
