Butcher of Malakir
In: Purphoros, God of the Forge
Included another win condition with Purphoros, God of the Forge in exchange for a really expensive vampire which doesn't help the most important part of the deck.
In: Expedition Map
Took out a costly vampire which has a specific effect for another piece of ramp, which is especially great for some of the utility lands (e.g. Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth & Cabal Coffers ).

Bishop of the bloodstained (little value for a one time effect at 5 cmc) - Bloodlord Vaasgoth - Massacre Girl (Hurts you) - Anowon, the Ruin Sage (too Slow) - Tempt with Immortality (There are better graveyard cards than this and its just not good in this deck) - Eldest Reborn (Just no synergy with the deck) - The biggest issue I see if you have a lot of cards that bring stuff back from the graveyard. Vamps nor Edgar care about that truely unless that is just the route you want to go down. The only one I think you keep is Faith's Reward just in response to a board wipe, but its a dead card if someone cyclonic rifts or exiles all creatures. Your deck severely lacks card draw as well. A few vamps I suggest that are just plain good and help with draw.
Keep going with the theme you want but you need card draw to draw the cards you want, and you still want better vamps than some of the ones that are too slow or don’t really help all the vamps and cards in your maybe are amazing, and will lower your CMC too and the cards I listed above I think could also help. Good luck man!

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom
Here are some houses:
Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?
Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone
Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone
Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this
Treasonous Ogre ... seems good
Reef Worm ... endless worms
Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped
Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+
Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes
Midnight Reaper ... yes
Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this
Goblin Bombardment ... yes
You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...
To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...
Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out
Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice
Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet
...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.
Demons would also be pretty sweet:
Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice
Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice
Havoc Demon ... wipe
Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?
Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good
Lord of the Void ... betrayal
Malfegor ... wipe?
Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe
Reaper from the Abyss ... removal
Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor
Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal
Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

What are your mana sinks?
I like Bloodtracker .

Some cards I definitely recommend if you can get your hands on them:
Debt to the Deathless is an excellent win condition. Keep yourself alive to gather a good amount of mana, then blast everybody with it. And if everyone doesn't die? Combine it with your Aetherflux reservoir and blast those who are left. Also, Pontiff of Blight gives every creature Extort, so a simple cheap spell can be paid extra to make a major life loss and gain impact.
I'd definitely recommend cards that can also spend your life- you're going to have a ton of it, why not use it? Underworld Connections makes a land of yours a source of card draw. Vona, Butcher of Magan lets you kill creatures with it. Bloodtracker gets stronger with life payments, and draws you cards if/when he dies. Final Payment can go the aristocrat route by having you sacrifice a creature, but in this case, why not pay that measly 5 life? Aetherflux is a nice win condition, but want to make sure no one who survives it can take advantage of you paying 50 life with any flying creatures, skulkers, or otherwise evasive cards? Use Font of Agonies . You get fifty blood counters with one payment, and can kill off up to 12 creatures with its effects.
Also, its mana expensive but Treasury Thrull can get you creatures and enchantments back.
I'd recommend more of the dual lands to. Commander is often more casual, so any of the ones that come in tapped are just fine.
I hope you do well and have fun your first game! Black/White is my favorite color combination, though I prefer the aristocrats route, so it makes me excited to see new players choose it for their first deck.

Seems like a decent list, Rakdos unusally isnt my forte but here we go:
Bloodtracker - benefits your board and keeps up the sweet black card draw too!
Olivia's Bloodsworn - again benefits the board
Torment of Hailfire - good in 1v1 really shines in a full pod
Phyrexian Arena - Sweet black card draw
Good luck! :)
