Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle

Sanctum Seeker

Legions Landing (probably not good enough)

Bishop of Rebirth (also probably not good enough)

Zerraphon on Edgar Markov: Dark Ambitions

I think an instant improvement for the deck would be to remove Skullclamp and replace it with Sword of the Animist, It'll ramp you up and help thin out your deck far better than a skullclamp would do. But thats just experience. also a great card, one of my favorite vampires EVER is not here, and think he's so underrated Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter Oh lord, he's just marveous, especially if you have Rakish Heir or Stensia Masquerade out or even a Necropolis Regent out removal at instant speed, and allows you to get rid of that pesky indestructible, Also i've found Falkenrath Aristocrat to be rather fabulous, with ANY kind of 1/1 counters mechanic you have (the ones i listed) She'll avoid most board wipes and is really resilient! Although you dont have a human to sac for the 1/1 a 4/1 indestructible flyer is still pretty darn good in my opinion. I hope this helps! Im trying to tune out my deck and see which vampires I like, and which i should switch out, currently for me my eyes are on Kheru Mind-Eater Bloodhusk Ritualist and Falkenrath Noble I havent seen much use from these guys so i may just switch them out for more control cards. I hope this helps!!!

More cuts, you say?

I'm not wildly keen on the amount of point-removal you're currently running. It's a little meta-dependent, but you're already running 7 vampires that can deal with opposing creatures, making the 10 instants and sorceries feel a bit extra. I would keep the vampires, and then run only the strongest/most flavorful of the other 10. Keep New Blood, Anguished Unmaking, Utter End, and Urge to Feed; cut Terminate, Swords to Plowshares, Mortify, Feast of Blood, Crackling Doom, and Victim of Night. I'd also advocate adding in Vindicate. Really none of the current instants you run are bad per se (I mean, Swords to Plowshares is the best removal spell printed in Magic), but in the interest of making meaningful space, this is where I'd start. Hell, if you really think you need more spot-shot, you could add Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter, though I don't care for his services. Vein Drinker is a solid option, however.

You could still trim a Sorin, though he is pretty nifty. Solemn Visitor is my least favorite.

Blind Obedience and Stensia Masquerade are somewhat unneeded. The Masquerade does improve some if you add in Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace (actually, I recommend running Rix Maadi regardless). The Dungeon Palace also enables you to trim Call the Bloodline if you wish.

Blasphemous Act wants to become a Damnation, with Vampire Nocturnus in the deck.

You aren't running Cabal Coffers, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, or Black Market, so you only have Nirkana Revenant and Crypt of Agadeem to power up Exsanguinate. I think I'd cut it for a more impactful card.

On the topic of Nirkana Revenant, run more swamps! Yes, they're expensive, but you're going to have to track down two original duals (Scrubland and Badlands) and black fetches to make 3-color-Revenant functional. On the plus side, this would also enable Cabal Coffers, and the fetches synergize with Nocturnus. Bloodhusk Ritualist and Gatekeeper of Malakir will thank you likewise. Canyon Slough and Smoldering Marsh should at least replace some basic mountains.

Look at your color costs: You have only 10 red symbols, and 13 white. You don't need to run R/W dual lands (Sacred Foundry et al). You can get by with just black/x lands.

Blood Artist/Falkenrath Noble are better in Olivia Voldaren than Edgar. With Olivia, you want more sac-outlets to ditch borrowed creatures in the event of Olivia's downfall, so the drain effects are a little more consistently powerful. With Edgar at the helm, I think you'd want to add in Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to augment Butcher of Malakir and sacrifice effects such as Viscera Seer and Indulgent Aristocrat. Without all that, they just aren't reliable enough.

I strongly dislike Mathas, Fiend Seeker. Political play and Group Hug be damned- I want my opponents to suffer alongside me, not get free goodies.... bunch of filthy, free-loading, commie-hippies....

Herald’s Horn doesn't excite me unless you're at 50%+ creatures of the chosen tribe, which is a tall order for most tribes.

Teferi's Protection is sick, but Edgar puts out a lot of tokens, which feel bad with phasing. Not that it's a bad inclusion, but Angel's Grace might be more what you want if you really think you need a Ace of Saves (unlikely). Or if you're after the board protection, Boros Charm could be considered, though it won't help with Merciless Eviction and tuck sweeps.

Leonantti, if you're looking for cuts I could make some suggestions (and you probably will want to keep them if you're a diehard vampire fan like me haha):

Bloodhusk Ritualist - depending on your playgroup, it gets weaker in larger games/late game if no one has a lot of cards (or actually a ridiculous amount of cards has no effect either) plus remember you need black mana and this is a 3 color deck

Licia, sanguine Tribune - I feel like he doesn't help Edgar too much/is more aligned with a lifegain/control deck instead of aggro if you are going that route

Mathas, Fiend Seeker - also seems quite strange/hard to play with unless you focus on some morbid/control theme, but yeah seems kinda fun to include all the new commanders haha

Dauthi Embrace & Duelist's Heritage - seem like more of a Licia voltron build, but I see how Edgar could be made that way too

Orim's Thunder - I just like Anguished Unmaking/Utter End better since it's exile and more targets

Teferi's Protection - also seems like a very control card

Urge to Feed - I'm not the biggest fan of it and think Indulgent Aristocrat is actually better for the mass counter effect

Throne of the God-Pharaoh - not sure how many tokens you will actually make and this list doesn't seem completely built for aggro (lot of control/voltron equipment thrown in)

Anyways, just some ideas! Again, it might help to decide how you want to build him (aggro, control, or voltron) so you stick to one theme. Hope this helsp!
