Needs more Rat Colony

With only 6 Relentless Rats you need half of your total number on the battlefield to even make them 4/4s. Most of the time they will be 3 mana 2/2s. You need a critical mass of Relentless Rats--at least 20. If you want to dedicate only a small portion of your deck to the Relentless effect, then Rat Colony is much better; unlike Relentless Rats it benefits from any rat you control, including Marrow-Gnawer's tokens. Pack Rat is also superior if you have many non-Relentless Rats.

Rat Colony is strictly better than Swarm of Rats. It's also generally better than Bog Rats, Carrion Rats, Muck Rats, Nezumi Cutthroat (fear isn't worth a large power loss and "can't block", especially when Marrow-Gnawer provides fear), Pestilence Rats (Rat Colony gets +2/-2 under most conditions and costs 1 less), and Earsplitting Rats (not enough graveyard/discard synergies).

Other suggestions

Tormod's Crypt -> Nihil Spellbomb, Bojuka Bog. You can run Crypt in addition if needed, but I would use these first.

Kitesail -> Bladed Pinions, Fleetfeather Sandals.

Geth's Grimoire -> remove. Only four or so cards in this deck actually cause an opponent to discard. Since you're running Ancient Craving, might as well slot in Ambition's Cost as well.

Nightmare Lash -> Lashwrithe. Or just run both, but Lashwrithe first.

Sword of the Paruns -> Bad Moon, Adaptive Automaton, Hall of Triumph, Vanquisher's Banner, and Obelisk of Urd are all more mana efficient and consistent ways to pump your rats.

Altar's Reap -> Costly Plunder, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood.

I'm not sure how Shriveling Rot serves the deck.

There are two Cabal Strongholds, so one needs to come out. Cycling lands--Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, and Desert of the Glorified--hedge against land-heavy draws. Some cheap utility/value lands like Zhalfirin Void, Encroaching Wastes, Mystifying Maze, or Temple of the False God might be good over some number of Swamps too.

Phyrexian Tribute -> Scour from Existence, Unstable Obelisk. I know black is bad with artifacts, but there is a reason Phyrexian Tribute is in 55 edh decks, and the other two are in over 5000 each, and it isn't just color restriction. They cover all five permanent types instead of just one, including the equally hard-for-black enchantments. Requiring two creatures to sacrifice, Phyrexian Tribute isn't even always easier to cast, and it's effect is far less flexible.

Speaking of Unstable Obelisk, more mana ramp would be prudent, like Wayfarer's Bauble, Mind Stone, and Commander's Sphere. Bontu's Monument isn't Jet Medallion, but is still worthwhile with 27 creatures.

I don't think there are enough graveyard synergies to make Living Death appropriate.

Night Dealings is slow, does nothing if the battlefield isn't somewhat favorable, can potentially get removed, makes you reveal, and can't get lands. Razaketh's Rite and Mastermind's Acquisition tutor with no fuss. If you want slow, multi-card tutoring, Diabolic Revelation, Demonic Collusion, and Increasing Ambition are reliable options. Although none feature Nezumi in their art.

Curse of Death's Hold is a bit narrow for multiplayer; I'd prefer Ascendant Evincar which will hit more enemy creatures overall while buffing your own and being a 3/3 flier.

There is a difference between a creature getting -1/-1 and getting a -1/-1 counter. Ascendant Evincar and Festering Goblin don't interact with Obelisk Spider.

If you have someone that has graveyard shenanigans you might want Bojuka Bog after they sacrifice their creature so they can't get it back.

Another land you could use is Crypt of Agadeem, say after you're done sacrificing your non vampires you can get a lot of mana or even use it after a board wipe.

More cards you can use ill save the explaining- Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Ascendant Evincar, Defiant Bloodlord, Stromkirk Condemned, Gray Merchant of Asphodel, Heirloom Blade, Bloodchief Ascension, Phyrexian Reclamation, Liliana Vess.

Yo, AA-ron! You need to consider Exquisite Blood for the Sanguine Bond combo. Can really do some damage along with Blood Tribute.

I'm wondering about the Blood Baron of Vizkopa having protection from white and black. Maybe someone can comment if he works well with Edgar Markov's second ability adding counters. I read it as he wouldn't be able to benefit from the counters when Edgar attacks. If that is the case, having a 10/10 flyer is cool, but you can make anything similar way stronger as often as Edgar attacks or with Blade of the Bloodchief. Of course if you run Sorin Markov then you can use that second ability to put Blood Baron of Vizkopa into that beefed up mode pretty quickly.

Ascendant Evincar is nice but keep in mind that it effects your red and white creatures as well. Shouldn't be an issue with all the counters Edgar gives out, but it is something to be aware of.

Vampire Nocturnus might have a home in this deck to help with extra power and flying for vampires. I also really like Cliffhaven Vampire in this deck with all the life gain (or any card with extort for that matter).

Also, Falkenrath Gorger because why not? Just keeps you protected from any sort of discard in our playgroup.

Cathars' Crusade, Stensia Masquerade and Vanquisher's Banner/Coat of Arms are all really solid for this deck. Just be aware that Coat of Arms effects all creatures, not just yours.

Patriarch's Bidding for the removal that is bound to happen since everyone seems to want to target this deck lol.

I'm sure there are some other vamps I'm missing, but I'll keep you posted on what I look into.

Welcome to the site (and the vampire brotherhood haha)
