There are two versions of this deck. This version is focused on capitalizing the undying nature of vampires by sacrificing them or my opponents creatures for various benefits, which usually include either extra draws or +1/+1 counters. The other version of the deck (Sucks to Suck (Damage Themed)) is themed around applying pressure to the opponent by pumping vampires when damage to a player is dealt or when creatures die.

Shout out to Yogei's vampired themed deck:Vampire Deatheaters and SefTheReject's vampire aristocrat deck:Bordello of Blood for my inspirations behind these decks.

Artifacts

  1. The Ozolith provides me the ability to keep any +1/+1 counters by pulling them from any of my creatures that are removed from the board be it exiled, sacrificed, or destroyed.

Creatures

  1. Bloodghast is one of the sacrifice workhorses of this deck with the Landfall ability to regularly yank it back into play proving me a consistent sacrifice target. His ability to gain Haste is also not to shabby.

  2. Cordial Vampire is a cornerstone of this deck as any creature that dies, including a sacrifice, triggers his ability.

  3. Falkenrath Pit Fighter provides me the ability to sac a vampire in exchange for draws. I liked this ability over Insolent Neonate but but Insolent Neonate is easier to trigger. By far the best vampire sac engine is Viscera Seer and while he does not provide a draw, a Scry 1 is like a draw in a manner so this spot could be filled with any one of those three.

  4. Indulgent Aristocrat pairs so well with the sacrifice and +1/+1 theme of the deck. A great combo is to trigger Cordial Vampire + Indulgent Aristocrat for an instant permanent boost to all vampires on the field.

  5. Oathsworn Vampire was added in as a sacrifice target. Similar to Silversmote Ghoul, his ability to be recast to the field when I gain life is ideal.

  6. Silversmote Ghoul functions similar to Bloodghast as a prime target for recurring sacrifice. His ability to sacrifice himself for a draw is also nice if I am lacking all the parts needed or the deck to fuctional properly.

Enchantments

  1. Hardened Scales is another cornerstone of the deck as it essentially doubles any +1/+1 counter production, rapidly accelerating the deck in terms of the threats on the board.

Instants/Sorceries

  1. Claim the Firstborn was added essentially as a removal spell. With the sacrifice heavy antics of the deck, taking an opponent's creature and using it as fuel for mine has some merit.

  2. Village Rites gives me something to help reload after a boardwipe or just add to my hand assuming I can sacrifice a creature.

Play-Testing Feedack and Suggestions

  1. Considering dropping Falkenrath Pit Fighter in exchange for Viscera Seer. Doing so would almost eliminate my need for which would likely make the deck run a little smoother dropping it only to & . I would miss Claim the Firstborn as that is a great "removal" in a sacrifice themed deck but it could be replaced with a more traditional removal easily enough.
