You can make this deck a lot faster without losing to much value by reducing some cards with hight mana cost, at this moment its sees like a mid range kinda trying to be aggro but to slow: Sorin, Grim Nemesis, Sorin Markov, New Blood, Black Market,Bloodsworn Steward, Olivia Voldaren,Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Decree of Pain then you can add 1 mana drops, the presure you can generate is impressing, Pulse Tracker, Vicious Conquistador, Shadow Alley Denizen, Vampire Cutthroat. Consider Purphoros, God of the Forge for hard killing potential x 2 because of edgar and Erebos, God of the Dead as indestructible greed that cancels life gain and can hit eventually. with cheap vampires i would use Legion's Landing and Springleaf Drum instead of signets and/or 3 mana rocks. from here i would improve the quallity and refinement of some cards: do you really need Mindcrank? do i want to give lifes in an agroo deckSwords to Plowshares or better a land Path to Exile? is it worth a Dismember over Go for the Throat or Hero's Downfall?. Ultimatly it depends ond how you want the deck to work, this is an agrro recomendation but if you want to consolidate midrange, i would suggest to go with a ton of life link and life gaining gimmiks.

There are spells with the Madness mechanic. I also have the 3 Vampires with Bloodthirst in it and hope they do more with the Bloodthirst mechanic soon.The Bloodlord of Vaasgoth was released in C17 and the other two were released in the 2012 Core Set. I didn't realize it was that old of a mechanic.

I would consider cutting a few of the bigger creatures and putting Blood Artist and Blood Seeker in. Bloodlord of Vaasgoth is another easy cut, in addition to Nocturnus. Generally, though, take a second look at all your high price vampires and consider running other combo pieces that will put you over the top, like Eldrazi Monument or Cathars' Crusade.

I like the idea of a vampire subtheme, it unintentionally works very well with what I feel like you're trying to do, and there's a ton of great support and synergy from the precon and ixalan stuff.

23 lands is not enough to support a 5 cmc creature. but in modern, 5 cmc is too high for a creature that doesnt provide immediate impact, which Bloodlord of Vaasgoth does not do. at best, he won't be played until turn 5, meaning you won't benefit from its effect until turn 6. the game could easily be over before then. Distress is strictly weaker than Inquisition of Kozilek and especially Thoughtseize. you have too many lands that enter tapped which greatly throws off your curve. fetchlands, shocklands, and even checklands (Dragonskull Summit) would be a direct upgrade over Foreboding Ruins and your other lands that will enter tapped. instead of running 2 copies of so many things, pick the best ones and run 4 for much better consistency. if you want to benefit from Vampire Nocturnus, i would say that at MOST run no more than 1 card that isn't black. any card with red in its casting cost, should also have black in its casting cost so that Vampire Nocturnus can stay active. Curse of the Pierced Heart is just too slow. you'd be much better off with a Lightning Bolt. with the release of "Rivals of Ixalan", adding white for Legion Lieutenant is also viable.

Thanks for the warning, I confess I did not remember that part when building the deck. Luckily it's just inconvinience that I can work around.
Here is some cards I think you could remove: Braid of Fire, Ghostly Prison, Rakdos's Return, Fire Covenant, Debt to the Deathless, sanctum seeker, Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Falkenrath Gorger and Bloodlord of Vaasgoth.
I tried to keep in mind what you are trying to do do but maybe it's too much? To my eye your deck is Vampire tribal with comboes with a lot of removal, return from the grave thingies and pillowfort.
For the lands, that's for you to decide and test out what works but I would suggest at least to add the mardu colored pain lands: Caves of Koilos, Sulfurous Springs and Battlefield Forge. If you make a lot of tokens Westvale Abbey Flip would work, also I would use Temple of the False God.
