I probably wouldn't run Vampire Nocturnus if I were you. I only run a few more black cards than you but I also run all the fetchlands that I can. This allows me to thin lands out of my deck 2 at a time when I fetch and it gives me a free shuffle if the top card isn't black. A few you could try though are Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Adaptive Automaton, Metallic Mimic, Indulgent Aristocrat, and Drana, Liberator of Malakir.

If you're going with a Vampire tribal theme, you should try to go as deep as possible. Adaptive Automaton, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Stromkirk Captain, Vampire Nocturnus, Metallic Mimic, and Malakir Bloodwitch all do work in my Vampire tribal deck. If you feel like you can't fit in so many vampire creatures, you could try Mephidross Vampire as a way to compensate.

Some of the vampires out there provide a boost to lifegain/drain such as the aforementioned Malakir Bloodwitch, but also Blood Artist, Falkenrath Noble, Vampire Nighthawk, Sangromancer, and Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is also strong grave hate.

As for lifegain, why not Authority of the Consuls, Wall of Reverence, and Transcendent Master? I've found that Pontiff of Blight and Suffer the Past have worked for me, as well.

Also, some additional utility would be good, like Bastion Protector, Rakdos Charm, Viscera Seer, Necropotence, Hide/Seek, Terminate... You might even want to consider Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx and Erebos, God of the Dead, considering all the black mana symbols floating around.

Hey, the deck looks good here's a few suggestions:

Gatekeeper of Malakir would probably be better than Go for the Throat. Innocent Blood and Small Pox aren't bad options either.

I think Impact Tremors and/or Purphoros, God of the Forge is good here especially paired with Bloodlord of Vaasgoth. Gets really crazy if you can splurge on a Cloudstone Curio.

You could probably use more resurrection effects like Living Death, Patriarch's Bidding and/or the budget friendly Phyrexian Reclamation.

Hope these help!

What about adding Bloodlord of Vaasgoth?

I've run vampires before but they are a tricky tribe since they do have some support but not as much as other tribes. The biggest problems I've found are that the best vampires are expensive (mana and money wise) and the game is a bit grindier. So you have to be ready to play the long game but their life-gain abilities help keep you in the game.

Budget pending, I would recommend cutting out some of your weaker non-vampire creatures for the following:

Captivating Vampire
Drana, Liberator of Malakir
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
Nirkana Revenant
Olivia, Mobilized for War
Anowon, the Ruin Sage
Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
Necropolis Regent
Vampire Nocturnus
Malakir Bloodwitch
Dark Impostor
Blood Artist
Markov Blademaster
Kalastria Highborn
Falkenrath Gorger
Falkenrath Aristocrat
Stromkirk Condemned
Gatekeeper of Malakir
Pawn of Ulamog

The thing to keep in mind with vampires is most tribal decks that use Olivia will be mostly Black with a bit of Red. So you need to accelerate your Black mana production more. You've got some solid mana rocks but here are a few additional ideas:

Nirkana Revenant
Crypt Ghast
Caged Sun
Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth + Cabal Coffers
Crypt of Agadeem

Increasing your card draw is my final recommendation. Black offers tons of ways to draw cards but I recommend Phyrexian Arena the most.

I hope this helps! Best of luck!

Pretty cool start, I like vampires and tribal themes. You can look at EDH vampire decks to look at a big list of vamp cards, that's what I do when I make a new deck. But some quick suggestions, if you're willing to spend the money, would Blood Artist, Bloodghast, Obelisk of Urd, Bloodline Keeper  Flip, Kalastria Highborn, Nirkana Revenant, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Olivia Voldaren, Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Heir of Falkenrath  Flip. Haha lots of cards that include "blood" in their names.

Would Drana, Liberator of Malakir fit in your deck? My vampire deck also contains Bloodlord of Vaasgoth. It's a bit more expensive to cast than your average vampire, but it has the potential to makes all your other creatures a heck of a lot stronger.

Also, since you've got several lifegain cards, would Phyrexian Arena or even Necropotence be nice to increase your draw a bit? Also some additional tutors would be nice, Diabolic Tutor or maybe even Demonic Tutor or Vampiric Tutor.
