Ruling on Bloodthrone Vampire needed

Are you allowed to sac multiple creatures at one time to buff Bloodthrone Vampire more than once.?
Yes, though technically you don't sac them all at the same time. You sac them one at a time, then each ability resolves one at a time.

yah buddy ty.
obviously but in the same turn..
You can activate the ability as many times as you can pay for it (paying for it would be "Sacrifice a creature")

The important distinction between sacrificing one at a time and sacrificing "all at once" is that abilities like Blood Artist will behave differently. If you could sac two Blood Artists "at the same time" you would steal 4 life from your opponent, but that's not the case with Bloodthrone Vampire. If you sacrifice two Blood Artists one at a time (which you have to in this case), your opponent will only lose 3 life.
