@corboman I totally agree with you there. I'm gonna start trading for mimics and see how they work in this.

Shalai has been amazing. Her, then Angel of Sanctions the next turn is great and Dauntless Bodyguard to protect Shalai gives my opponent a headache. Her answering settle is huge but Bloodcrazed Paladin won't help since they get exiled, not die. Thank you for the suggestions!

I agree with x12721, add in a swamp in case your non basic black source gets blown away. Would also consider Bloodcrazed Paladin in the side when playing white with Settle and Fumigate.

Personally, I'd remove Anointed Deacon he's got a very high mana cost for his effect. he's essentially only a 5/3 on your turn, and a 5/3 that's a 5 cost is very steep. Bloodcrazed Paladin would be next to be removed. 2 cost for a 1/1 is not great, I try to stay away from cards that are too situational, and this would fit that mold. Paladin of the Bloodstained again, cost is high for what it does. Bishop of the Bloodstained 5 cost for a 3/2 that has an effect only when he enters the battlefield as well must go. Skyblade of the Legion could go as well, 3 cost for a 1/3, there are better options. Twilight Prophet and again, this to me feels too situational to be used. What if you encounter a manaless deck, this would be a useless effect.

dam some of these knights are sick as fk. As such I think this deck could go harder even. I don't like Metallic Mimic personally, especially with just 2, because then your likely to get it late when its terrible.
Also Bloodcrazed Paladin isn't very good imo, especially considering you don't have any removal to turn him on, so hes just suedo board wipe protection that doesn't work vs Settle the Wreckage. I would cut both of those guys and proly both Danitha Capashen, Paragon and jam 4 Radiant Destiny, it's so good here.
Maybe leave Aryel, Knight of Windgrace in the sideboard for grindy games, because I think Kwende, Pride of Femeref is the real fire here and should be jammed at 4 copies, as it turns on such a good attack for the 2 mana knights.
-2 mimics
-2 paladins
-2 Danitha
-3 Aryel
+4 radiant D.
+2 Kwende
I also don't like Seal Away here, as you can't clear blockers with it, and I don't like On Serra's Wings either, it adds some cool effects and evasion, but I think you would be better off with cheaper evasion, or a pump that added first strike so you could capitalize on kwende, I'm thinking 4x Cartouche of Solidarity, which if you wanted could open up 2xTrial of Ambition which is a pretty sick combo I've always wanted to find a home for. Also why the fk not, 1 Trial of Solidarity as well.
-2 seal away
-2 serra's wings
+4 cartouche
+2 trial Ambition
+1 trial solidarity
Finally Josu Vess, Lich Knight is kinda a pipe dream, though being a 4/5 menace for 4 is pretty hot, maybe you want to just drop him tho for another Ixalan's Binding, which would give you a pretty fair removal package overall.
Last thing, 2 Unclaimed Territory should be really good here, the toughest spell to cast being History of Benalia, but the land could help to cast something like a 1 or 2 of Benalish Marshal.

If you decide to make that list what you posted tell me how it performances so I can optimize my deck as well

I don't know about Bloodcrazed Paladin on main because mainly decks have one to one trades mostly only exception being decks that have sweeps. Also I really wan't to know how Elenda, the Dusk Rose works in this kind of deck because I see her only win more card but I could be wrong.

Hello again :)

You are a very prolific brewer. I like this commander.

Some questions :

That's some of my reflexions. You have plenty of possibilities with this commander :)

Edgar decks need to be fast. Replace the tapped lands with lands that don't come into play tapped as far as possible. Play lots of small vampires, since Edgar will make them big anyway.

You could probably cut some of the more expensive creatures. Put in cheaper Vampires like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodcrazed Paladin, Malakir Cullblade, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Indulgent Aristocrat, Stromkirk Noble, Vicious Conquistador, Pulse Tracker, Shadow Alley Denizen, Markov Blademaster to get multiple tokens. Inspiring Cleric doesn't have enough of an impact.

Replace Sorin, Grim Nemesis with Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad since they are cheaper and synergize better with your large number of tokens.

You could potentially replace Avacyn with Eldrazi Monument for the earlier indestructible and +1/+1.

Elbrus is too expensive and not very useful. You should also drop Angelic Destiny and Noble Purpose.
