A different take on the Vladimir decks. Uses deck buffing and combat tricks to sneak out tons of damage by turns 5-8. Feel free to ask questions.

Love the idea -- how's it performing?
Made it to Gold IV, and have plateaued from there, although I haven't played much in the last week.
Very interesting. Bold choice skipping over Braum, but I don't think its wrong.
Do you ever try to answer elusives, or do you just start race them? Lately I've been using Noxian Guillotine and Whirling Death for that, but as their both Noxus cards that would contest your much-needed Outriders' allegiance.
I have actually restructured my deck to keep elusives at bay rather than kill them. I essentially dropped Avalanche for Harsh Winds to stop big buffed elusive swings while I can build a board for my biggger swing. The trade off is that leaves me open for more impactful denies on Vlad or Tarkaz's skill. I am also open to a big frostbites as well.
While Braum's early regeneration is good, I had never gotten the value out of it that I needed. (ie never damaged up a level up Braum). The Draw for the rest of my deck is more important. I have an improved list that should reflect this soon.
I get a lot of value out of Braum, but my deck is also very different. He only levels up ~10% of the games, but he's controlling the early board and baiting out early removal. Plus if he gets even a little attack value, he becomes a great threat.
For reference, this is my latest decklist (still a bit of a work-in-progress):
This was very similar to how my deck started. I like the play style. How is it performing?
Honestly? Still needs a little refinement, but overall I'm pretty happy with it. It's definitely not a Tier One deck, but it destroys Ezreal Combo decks and aggro decks and is OK against Hecarim and Karma. Elusives are a crap-shoot: I need to race them, and if they get lucky on either Omen Hawks or Will of Ionia its usually a loss. But it just loses hard against any control deck that run The Ruination, and there's not much to be done about it.
