Deck Primer / Description

Orzhov (black and white) Vampires gains its battlefield advantage by slamming down low-mana cost, aggressive creatures like Vicious Conquistador and Adanto Vanguard. Legion's Landing creates even more Vampires, which you can use as blockers, cannon fodder, or to fuel Champion of Dusk's triggered ability.

You have lifegain sources in Vampire of the Dire Moon and Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord, plus the lifelink from Legion's Landing's Vampire tokens. Because of this, you don't have to be too concerned when your life total goes down from using Adanto Vanguard, Caves of Koilos, or Champion of Dusk. (Plus, Champion of Dusk's card draw ability is extremely useful for maintaining your battlefield advantage in the late game. In cases like this, losing or paying life is an investment, not a risk.)

If you're willing to spend some extra money, you can easily upgrade this to a more powerful, aggressive version by making the following substitutions:

Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord or Sorin, Solemn Visitor instead of Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord
Knight of the Ebon Legion instead of Vampire of the Dire Moon
Godless Shrine and Isolated Chapel instead of Temple of Silence and Caves of Koilos
Thoughtseize instead of Agonizing Remorse
Authority of the Consuls instead of Trespasser's Curse

If you don't have Vraska's Contempt, you can use Eat to Extinction instead. Other alternatives for spot removal are Anguished Unmaking, Baffling End, Banishing Light, Fatal Push, Hero's Downfall, Murder, Mortify, Silkwrap, or The Elderspell. I'd recommend The Elderspell as a sideboard card, though-- it works only on planeswalkers, which not everyone uses.

Languish serves as your "board wipe" (a spell that gets rid of multiple creatures at once). If it isn't available, and the bulk of your opponents' creatures have 2 or less toughness, you can substitute Cry of the Carnarium or Golden Demise. If the bulk of your opponents' creatures have a mana cost of 3 or less, you can use Ritual of Soot. Other "board wipe" cards are Cleansing Nova, Declaration in Stone, Fumigate, Legion's End, Planar Cleansing, and Settle the Wreckage.

2 copies of Vona, Butcher of Magan make a great addition to the main deck; you can take out 2 copies of another creature card to fit her in. (I wouldn't recommend taking out any Legion Lieutenant, as the +1/+1 buff to your Vampires is worth keeping.)
