The point of Archenemy is that you get the schemes to equal the balance a bit. Metagaming to end the game as fast as possible or dedicating your deck to have your opponents play as little magic as possible won't lead to a fun weekend.
Play a deck that's fun, that's capable of big mana plays, although do play a few more boardwipes than you would. Something like Karametra, God of Harvests or Golos, Tireless Pilgrim, to make sure you have plenty of resources all the time.
If I'd be invited to a game like this, I'd probably play my Rankle, Master of Pranks deck, with plenty of mana doublers like Magus of the Coffers and Crypt Ghast (extort works amazingly in this setup), recurring creatures like Bloodghast and Gutterbones to keep sacrificing to the rankle triggers, discard & draw punishment like Underworld Dreams and Liliana's Caress, big demons like Razaketh, the Foulbloodedand Vilis, Broker of Blood and big mana finishers like Torment of Hailfire. It holds its own pretty well in multiplayer, and Rankle scales pretty well with an increasing number of opponents.

This is such a cool deck!! Maybe add Bloodghast for a continuous sac outlet.

MagicMarc, thanks for the comment! Theres a lot if things to try, going black as also definately an option. I don't really follow standard, but Im sure at the least someone is going to try to use the card. In modern I am not sure what synergies there are that would fit the deck aside from Bloodghast, but I should definitely do some research in that.
Another way of looking at the card that I was thinking if is going green and playing Tireless Trackers and cards like Dryad of the Ilysian Grove, but again, I think at that point you may as well play Elvish Reclaimer.

Bloodghast, Champion of Dusk, Chancellor of the Dross, Dark Impostor, Defiant Bloodlord, Guul Draz Overseer, Knight of the Ebon Legion, Mirri the Cursed, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Necropolis Regent, Nirkana Revenant, Twilight Prophet, Dusk Legion Zealot, Savage Gorger, Thirsting Bloodlord, Vampire of the Dire Moon, and Vampire Outcasts would all be decent additions to the deck. Wraths and tutors would also be good.

Thanks again for your help. When I first started with this deck I wanted something aggressive and ended up playing my hand very quickly, which is why I needed Asylum Visitor and then Stromkirk Condemned to capitalize on that. But I'm not sure if it's working as well as it could, so I will definitely try out some cards you suggested!
I want to avoid an aristocrats type deck, and I didn't want a deck that only plays small creatures and then buffs, I wanted a little more variety but still competitive.
I'd love to include Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet but unfortunately, he breaks my budget. I'm only hesitant with Indulgent Aristocrat because I never really find the creatures I want to sacrifice besides Bloodghast...

I've been thinking about the auto-includes for monoblack vamps in Modern.
Viscera Seer is absolutely amazing for more midrange-y builds (not strictly necessary but he's a very good card, ditto for Indulgent Aristocrat) and I'd go for 4 Vampire Nocturnus and some mix of Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and/or Champion of Dusk if you're looking to capitalize on Sorin.

Condemned + Ghast + Visitor is a decent lineup but sometimes you won't have a desired card to discard. I probably wouldn't use him as an engine but he does partner well with visitor. Cordial has definite uses but he's more built for aggressive builds with a lot of 1 mana creatures, or an aristocrats type engine with things like Kalastria Highborn, Viscera Seer, Bloodghast, Blood Artist and Sorin's second +1.

This can definitely compete, vampires have some pretty good cards
Instead of Vicious Conquistador and Gifted Aetherborn, what about Bloodghast and Viscera Seer? Between Sorin and seer this gives you a reasonable number of sac outlets to trigger Cordial Vampire and cheat extra power on the board. The scry also helps enable Vampire Nocturnus. Don't forget he can be cheated into play t3 with Sorin too, never underestimate cheating on mana.
