Well, the Eight of Wands, or Sceptres, is also known as the Lord of Swiftness. It is Mercury in Sagittarius. It is organizing and optimizing to improve effencicy, swift because the restraints have been removed. It has an explosive energy and can be violent, but it is not long lasting.
Now, how that relates to the Tarot of the Vampyres I have no idea. That is definitely not a deck or symbolism I would use.
