For me, it's a little weird to see 3 maindeck extirpates, because unless you get an accurate read on your opponent's deck, it often ends up being a dead card until game 2, when you can pick apart your opponent's strategies with it. For me, Terror seems to be a better choice for this deck (hits 'goyf, what more do you need?). Also, Temporal Extortion is a little odd in this deck, and maybe subbing it out for another Skeletal Vampire and a couple Sudden Deaths is in order. Lastly, the Terramorphic Expanses really should go, because it pumps your opponent's 'goyf and hurts your tempo. More swamps could easily fill that gap.
