Legion Lieutenant is a good pick for tutoring.
It's a fairly liner deck... drop Vampires, protect them, win (if possible).
Here is a great end-of-game layout.
Forerunner of the Legion gives temporary boosts that come in handy.
There are several Vampires in this deck with Ascend.
Champion of Dusk will draw a card for each Vampire on the board. That can be quite the draw.
Here is the outcome.
Sorin has a +2 ability. I need to remember that.
Twilight Prophet was the pick here. Double draws each turn are great!
In solitaire no Vampires die. In a real game, they sure will, and then can be used to boost Elenda.
Here is another great layout of Vampires.
Profane Profession is a fantastic card. It cannot be modeled in solitaire because you want to exile opponent creatures. I have played it against real opponents, and it's a very disruptive card.
It's linear, all right; and it's also fun!
