This has been the year of Rakdos commanders for me- Tibalt, Prosper, and now Strefan.

Strefan is pretty simple with no real bells and whistles- attack, cheat in Vampires, and make blood tokens. But that makes it seem fun. He's less of a target than Edgar Markov as well. Olivia Voldaren, Florian, Voldaren Scion, and Anje, Maid of Dishonor serve as alternate commanders, though its mainly based around Strefan.

Pretty basic vampire tribal, with some burn elements to help trigger Strefan and Florian's End-of-Turn abilities (Sanctum Seeker, Voldaren Epicure, Hellrider, etc.), Vampire Socialite's Counter production, and to activate Falkenrath Pit Fighter's ability. Win through smashing face or burning people out steadily. Even just in Rakdos, there's a bunch of utility vampires like Crossway Troublemakers for draw power, Cemetery Gatekeeper for card hate of our choice, Nirkana Revenant's ramp, and that's just to name a few.
