Is there a reason for no copies of Bump in the Night??

Bump in the Night cant be used (it has red in the flashback cost) Drain Life, Consume Spirit or Exsanguinate are good alternatives

The sideboard just looks like 15 cards that didn't fit into the 60 card main board.
But focusing on the Mainboard, I would suggest Gifted Aetherborn over Fourth Bridge Prowler. Accompany that with 4 copies of Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx or Cabal Stronghold if you're on a budget. Bump in the Night is good if you are looking for a cheap and easy way to trigger Bloodchief Ascension. I would go with Sign in Blood over Night's Whisper since it can target your opponent and make them lose 2 life in the process. Or if you need gas you can target yourself. I don't know what format you plan on playing this in, but Demonic Tutor is banned/restricted in every format. I would go with Infernal Tutor or just swap it for those Bump in the Nights. Cut Diabolic Tutor. Ultimate Price is OK. I would add a 3rd Bloodchief Ascension in its place. +1 for me. Cool build.

i did a handful of test games with the deck, and in almost, if not all of them, having the higher damage stats from the guide would have closed out the game a turn or two faster than the bomat could, and by the time the card draw would be helpful, the game would already be over. ill apply the same argument to the Bump in the Night, its nice to have another lava spike, ill give you that much, but the flashback is all but pointless, as in a burn deck if you reach turn 6, you probably arent in any position to win that matchup at all. whereas Kolaghan's Command has the utility to clear the way to a win at any point in the game past turn 2. it is one of the best cards to be utlized in rakdos, if not the best. Dreadbore in the sideboard could also help, depending on your local meta

ill also note that you have 61 cards, and would recommend dropping a swamp, as it tends to interfere with the pure red mana required for 80 percent of the deck

Backinthefrey budget is going into the deck, but I took out Goblin Guide for the card draw in Bomat Courier. And Bump in the Night is one more lava spike with recursion in the late game.

not sure if budget is an object here, but im gonna recommend switching the bomats fore a set of Goblin Guide, and switching the Bump in the Nights with a set of Kolaghan's Command

+1 for Vampires and madness! Too bad I can only give 1 upvote

You need Faithless Looting, Tormenting Voice, or Collective Brutality.

As far as vampires go, I would say Heir of Falkenrath  Flip and Bloodghast.

Last, Fiery Temper and Bump in the Night work as well.

Good luck!

Your deck seems awful slow. 3.49 is pretty high CMC. Perhaps some fun creatures like Vampire Nighthawk 3 CMC I'd recommend Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt as staples in any Black deck. If you are going budget though put another Bump in the Night in mainboard and maybe a set of Doom Blade . Maybe consider adding Black Knight ?
