I’ve been working on this deck since ZEN standard, here’s where it’s at now.

Creatures:
4X Viscera Seer
4X Bloodghast
4X Kalastria Highborn
2X Gifted Aetherborn
1X Vampire Hexmage
4X Gatekeeper of Malakir
3X Drana, Liberator of Malakir
1X Vampire Nighthawk
2X Vampire Nocturnus
1X Malakir Bloodwitch

Spells:
4X Inquisition of Kozilek
4X Fatal Push
1X Slaughter Pact

Artifacts:
2X Blade of the Bloodchief

Lands:
4X Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth
3X Cavern of Souls
4X Ghost Quarter
4X Tectonic Edge
1X Marsh Flats
2X Verdant Catacombs
1X Bloodstained Mire
1X Polluted Delta
4X Swamp


Sideboard:
4X Thoughtseize
3X Drown In Sorrow
2X Fulminator Mage
2X Gifted Aetherborn
3X Vampire Hexmage
1X Vampire Nighthawk

I’ve tried a lot of different versions of the deck, and the Viscera Seer/Kalastria Highborn/Bloodghast engine seems to work the best. The other one drops just aren’t as good as other one-drops in the format, so as a straight aggro deck it’s lacklustre, but Viscera Seers synergy with the deck works very well. So it’s a pretty aggressive midrange deck, with lots of reach, and plenty of lifegain to outlast aggro decks. The main plan is to play dudes, pump with Vampire Nocturnus/Drana, Liberator of Malakir and swing for a bunch, but more often Kalastria Highborn is what ends the game. Blade of the Bloodchief is quite good with it’s cheap equip cost, and no shortage of creatures dying, but I never wanted to see 2 in a game, so it was cut down to 2. Other cards I’m currently considering are Extripate Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, and Maybe splash Maelstrom Pulse/Abrupt Decay.

Updated with more play testing. There’s a few cards in here I don’t have, so I have to try to borrow them until I can trade for them, but I decided to post what the ideal list would look like
