I try to fit in more 1 and 2 drops. But its damn hard to make cuts. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth and Sangromancer where also in for the cuts (mostly becaus they are CMC 4&5) but both CAN provide greate value. often Sangromancer saved my ass

Definitely add: Skullclamp (one of the best cards in the deck), Dusk Legion Zealot low impact, but you generally want to get a bunch of creatures out early, Viscera Seer super strong and again, this is a deck where you really want to start out strong, Painful Truths (the best draw spell in Mardu), Indulgent Aristocrat (super strong way to aggro people out while also getting a board presence early), Yahenni, Undying Partisan this just doesn't ever die and gets very big
I'd recommend: Nihil Spellbomb (I think this is almost always a mustplay in black.)

Hey, some good suggestions so far, here's some more:

Sorin Markov and Sorin's Vengeance wouldn't be bad here. I have both I could trade away if you want. Other cards I have that I'm willing to trade to you that could help this deck is Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet and Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief and Bloodhusk Ritualist .
Directions to take this would be board control, hand control, an aristocrats utilizing Viscera Seer and Blood Artist . Blood Seeker wouldn't hurt against go wide strategies. I have all three of those if you'd to trade for them too.
Nirkana Revenant is great for this deck.
Ob Nixilis, Unshackled can do some serious damage.
Any of the Ob Nixilis planeswalkers and Lili plansewalkers wouldn't hurt

I only see a couple of black cards. Do you want it to be black and white or just white? I would figure that out first. If black and white....
Suture Priest instead of Soul Warden you are going to be the one making creatures you don't need them to put creatures in the field to gain life, but punishing them for casting creatures imo is better. Plus it works with Exquisite Blood which i would also get Sanguine Bond like someone else mentioned.... because its infinite. Also Blood Seeker , and Blood Artist if you plan on wiping their creatures or even yours.
If the deck is budget and can't afford fetch lands, Windswept Heath is cheaper than all the fetch lands and can fetch your plains, which includes the shock lands. For mana base you could get rid of the cards that say land and grab Plains/Swamp for example Godless Shrine . There is also the lands that enter and gain you life.
maybe Divine Visitation ?
I appologize for not knowing some of the names. I am a green player, I could tell you all sorts of cards if you were green white, but thats not your color scheme

Thanks for the suggestions! I thought about it more, and did end up removing Consume Spirit . Thanks for the advice; I was holding onto it because it can target either a player or a creature, and as a bonus it gave me life. Still, it could potentially end up being more expensive than Mortify and Blood Tithe combined if thats what i'm going for. As for Suture Priest , she did have me thinking for a bit; but I don't think i'll be adding her. I built this as a theme deck centered around vampires; you'll notice every card in the deck talks about vampires or Sorin in some way, and she doesn't fit in in that regard. Another equally big reason is that I have cards like Malakir Bloodwitch and Feast of Blood . While there are only a couple of cards like that; adding in a card that is isolated in such a way can hurt the strat; especially in a 60 card deck. I will be adding Blood Seeker though, he'd be a very fun addition :) I just have to figure out where to place him, this deck is struggling a bit to get down to 60 cards :3
