Vampiric Tutor lets you search your library for any card and put it in your hand for the cost of 1 black mana and 2 life. It works much like a Demonic Tutor except for the slightly lower casting cost, the loss of 2 life, and the fact that it’s an Instant. This is especially useful if you need to get your hands on, say, a Counterspell or an Unsummon in an emergency during your opponent’s turn whereas you can’t with the Demonic Tutor because it’s a Sorcery.
This card, like most tutors, is Restricted
Vampiric Tutor has been restricted since 1998 according to this list but you can include just ONE of them in your deck. However, you can still include one of any of the other tutors on that list as well. Or use Grim Tutor which is not restricted in Vintage (but beware of its higher casting cost.)

(Note: I included 4 copies in the deck I used to demonstrate this card in the video. But be sure you only include 1 per deck when you play with others.)
Since most Tutors are restricted, you’ll need 1 Vampiric Tutor along with many of the other tutors instead of stuffing it with 4 of a single tutor. To learn more about this card, please head to Amazon.com by clicking through the button below!
