Hey dude, first off i have to say thank you, i got some good baseline ideas from your deck.
Secondly, i think this deck could definitely use some refining and i do have some suggestions.
If you want to take a look at my vampire token deck for some ideas, please do: Life & Death: A wicked story
In a deck like this, you need to be able to fetch your key cards, with Forerunner of the Legion you can search for your token generator(s) to get them out much earlier, and using Mastermind's Acquisition to get Anointed Procession out quicker greatly improves how the deck plays, it also allows you to search your sideboard or entire library (in casual games) for any card you may want to use, very handy!
IMO your deck is a bit creature heavy, however with the changes i suggested it, it may even it out quite well, let me know your thoughts :)

As for cards to remove, though, I would suggest removing cards that try to take your deck in a different direction. If you want to go all in on the combo, then this is what I'd suggest. Crypt Ghast can go. Combo doesn't need extort to win, and you don't have many swamps. Tezzeret the Schemer is even worse ramp. Athreos, God of Passage actually doesn't help your combo, it hurts it by giving control to your opponents. Better to just have more tutors. Aether Gale and Depths of Desire don't do much to support your gameplan, so I'd toss them. It's good to interact with opponents, but if your deck can win without caring what anyone else is doing, that's a good enough reason to focus your deck on protecting your game plan instead of interaction. After all, there's no need to interact with an opponent you can kill.

You might want to consider Crypt Ghast , Bubbling Muck , Dark Ritual , Mana Crypt , Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Greed , Erebos, God of the Dead , Athreos, God of Passage , Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening .
You can also check out my brew and see if there is anything else you find if value.

Slightly upgraded! Added Cruel Celebrant , Cordial Vampire , upgraded a couple to foils and got some signatures! Unfortunately Athreos, God of Passage didn't make the cut (He has a new and Loving home in my Teysa Karlov deck, and Necropolis Regent was also cut. Can't remember what else went in and out, but those were the most recent

I cast another Nyxborn Shieldmate for W targeting either your already enchanted Nyxborn Shieldmate (both aura sheildmates become creatures) when you sacrifice the creature sheildmate for Blood Funnel .
Additionally, because the creature sheildmate was enchanted by an aura, it has Necromancer's Magemark raise dead effect returning it to my hand.
From this point I could cast the returned Nyxborn Shieldmate for W targeting one sheildmate, and sacrificing the other.
And I found this hiding: Bestow and Cost Modifications
I'm just making sure this part is correct: "So, by the time you get to applying Thalia, it’s a noncreature spell and will cost you 1 more. By the time you get to applying Heartless Summoning, it’s not a creature so you won’t get the discount."
I think I answered your question and brought it back around to my question in maybe too many words there lol.

Thanks for linking my profile. :D Athreos, God of Passage and Yosei, the Morning Star are really cool additions. I would add Athreos myself if I had one. It should be a really strong card in this deck.
I hope you had fun playing this deck. Personally I really like to play this deck.

Other good choices for competitive decks could be:
- Thrasios, Triton Hero + Tymna the Weaver partners for straight out value and infinite mana combos, draw your deck and stuff like Laboratory Maniac .
- Godo, Bandit Warlord combo with Helm of the Host for infinite combat steps. Needs a lot of expensive artifact ramp (i.e. Mana Vault ) to really perform.
- Zur the Enchanter necropotence deck, super control and fast.
- Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain eggs (0 mana artifacts) combo with Retract effects, tutors and finisher with Aetherflux Reservoir / Laboratory Maniac .
- Naru Meha, Master Wizard full instant speed combo deck with infinite turns combo, usually wins in response to your opponent trying to win.
