Bloodflow Connoisseur Discussion

Personally, I don't run Urza's Incubator in my vampire deck because the vampires I do run are very low to the ground, so for me, [Herald's Horn] does the job a bit better. I run Purphoros, God of the Forge in my deck because you're essentially getting 4 damage to each opponent for each vampire you cast.
Also Skullclamp is busted in this deck, especially with all the sac outlets you have.
Bloodflow Connoisseur is kinda weak in my opinion, I would run something like Guul Draz Assassin instead so you can snipe pesky commanders/creatures out of the battlefield in the mid to late game... Unless you want to keep a free sac outlet in your deck, in that case you can run Viscera Seer to help filter your draws from your deck.
I took out Anowon, the Ruin Sage from the deck because he'd be taken out before I would ever get his ability to resolve in my playgroup. Maybe you can add Olivia, Mobilized for War instead? Gives an option for haste and opens up options for madness too.
Exquisite Blood feels like a slow card to me, I opted against that card in my deck since I wanted to focus on damage rather than life loss. You may want to consider taking it out for something with a lower CMC, but if you find that it helps you out then definitely keep it in.

first of all I like the low mana curve of your deck. This is how Edgar Markov should be played!
Skullclamp was already mentioned. It is the most important inclusion in your deck, I think. It's your draw engine in combination with the tokens.
You could consider Blood Bairn, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bloodthrone Vampire, Vampire Aristocrat and Viscera Seer. The first four give you an advantage in combat and the Viscera Seer gives you card selection which is desperately needed in mardu. All are good with Skullclamp. Take out Skymarch Bloodletter, Bloodmad Vampire, Inspiring Cleric, Olivia's Dragoon, Ravenous Bloodseeker or Sanguinary Mage. Or take out Gifted Aetherborn and Tithe Drinker because they're difficult to cast on turn 2 consistently.
Carnival of Souls could be a great tool for an aggro deck in a 1vs1 format. I think it will really spice things up in your deck!
you should invest some money in your mana base, so that you're able to cast your spells consistently on turn 1,2 and 3. For example fetches, shocks, Dragonskull Summit, Isolated Chapel, Clifftop Retreat and Unclaimed Territory.

my strategy for making your deck faster is:
putting in more cheap vampires as this synergises with your commander more: Insolent Neonate, Kheru Mind-Eater, Guul Draz Assassin, Viscera Seer, Bloodthrone Vampire, Blood Bairn, Vampire Aristocrat, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Malakir Cullblade. This way you can swarm the board early while en passant generating tokens, then attack with Edgar Markov on turn 6.
putting in some ultra aggressive cards. Alongside tokens Mercadia's Downfall can be devastating, for example. Another one would be Mirror Entity. Note that this one is also a vampire and that the +1/+1-counters stay on the creatures when you change their base power and toughness.
cutting some of the more expenise and non-aggressive cards: Campaign of Vengeance, Stensia Masquerade and maybe you should reduce your lifegain/-loss subtheme if you want to go the faster route. Also Vanquisher's Banner is cool tech, but at 5 mana it may be too expensive
By the way: a card that can go absolutely crazy in token tribal decks is Mana Echoes. Unfortunately it is no budget card.
bushido_man96 mentioned some mass removals. Their asymetrical effect is nice but they also cost a lot of mana. Some other really good asymmetrical mass removals for token decks would be Austere Command, Fell the Mighty, Retribution of the Meek and Dusk.
That's all for now. Let me know what you think of my faster game plan.

first of all:
modern is a fast format. 5 and 4 mana spells or abilities that are 3 colored, like you have, are not likely to even hit the battlefield because you'll die before it even happens (in most cases). if those 5 & 4 drops are not important to you, i suggest removing them from the deck, and putting creatures like Bile Urchin, Bloodbriar, Bloodflow Connoisseur, Bontu the Glorified, Child of Thorns , Corpse Hauler, Doomed Necromancer, Frostling, Mortician Beetle
and sideboarding Boggart Forager
i'll keep searching for you tomorrow, hope this helps for now

Bloodflow Connoisseur might be an option for you since it also stacks +1/+1 counters just like your other creatures do, although it is more expensive. It synergizes very well with your Mortician Beetle.

Relentless Dead and Weatherseed Treefolk(though treefolk sadly doesn't trigger aluren) give you alternatives to Endless Cockroaches or just more redundancy to get that effect out(and has a nice effect on relentless of letting you bring back Carrion Feeder
Love Aluren shenanigans! :D
