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.

Thanks, Leonantti for your comments.

I do agree with you that my card draw is kinda weak, with only Phyrexian Arena and Mathas, Fiend Seeker as repeatable. However, they are supplemented by Herald’s Horn, Kheru Mind-Eater, Solemn Simulacrum, Canyon Slough and Commander's Sphere.

As for Call the Bloodline, Olivia, Mobilized for War and Stromkirk Condemned, I was hoping to use them to trigger Madness with Falkenrath Gorger and Stensia Masquerade or excess lands.

The cycling duals from amonkhet like Canyon Slough

Argy on Weak in the knees

OK I've played around with this a bit and would suggest something like this:

Creature
2x Drana, Liberator of Malakir
2x Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet
4x Soul-Scar Mage
4x Thermo-Alchemist
2x Voldaren Pariah  Flip

Land
10x Mountain
4x Smoldering Marsh
8x Swamp
(it would make the mana more consistent if you added 4 Canyon Slough instead of 2 Mountains and 2 Swamps)

Instant
2x Abrade
4x Fiery Temper
4x Lightning Axe
4x Magma Spray

Sorcery
2x Diabolic Tutor
2x Incendiary Flow
2x Sweltering Suns

Enchantment
4x Nest of Scarabs

I agree that Outnumber is very situational. Incendiary Flow stops Lord of the Accursed from recurring.

You also need a Sideboard.

I would build something like this:

3x Grasp of Darkness - excellent against gods
4x Lay Bare the Heart - the only way to deal with Enchantments in these colours
4x Never / Return - killls Planeswalkers and big Creatures
2x Sweltering Suns - more board wipes
2x Unlicensed Disintegration - kills big Creatures, and the colours are easier to get than Murder, although you could use that instead

Some budget land ideas as well as some ideas to support your largely basic landbase, starting with the latter

With Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and/or a lot of basic swamps in which you already have, Bubbling Muck becomes a powerhouse ritual often outperforming Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual,

same goes for basic islands and High Tide, easily ramping you to victory at very low $ and mana cost

Alternatively, you could take advantage of basic lands and artifact mana and run things like Price of Progress, Blood Moon, Back to Basics or Contamination to punish the use of nonbasic lands

Some budget yet value non-basics to consider:

Well it's a lot more than a rumor because pictures of the lands were leaked. If you're wanting to be safe then Blooming Marsh, Sheltered Thicket and Canyon Slough are for sure legal in Standard post rotation.

I wasn't counting on him being super consistent, but I think he would just be another tool to win later (also cool to have lol). You could get him a lot more if you put Visage of Bolas in, but then you'd be taking out other cards and kinda slowing the deck down. I'll just be using Aether Hub, Canyon Slough, and Fetid Pools to cast him for that reason. The cycle lands help later if you start top decking--I might add in a Sea Gate Wreckage too tho. Will let you know how it goes this Friday...pretty excited to try it for the first time!
