okay firstly add a Mountain to your land base, it allows you to get a red source out of your deck with Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse cut a swamp for it because your land count is perfectly fine for an aggro deck now let's get to the meat of the feast I would cut Zombify for Tortured Existence you only get a mana discount for 8 of the cards in your deck and the repeatability is much better. Sign in Blood should be replaced with Read the Bones digs deeper for 1 more mana. cut Hierophant's Chalice for Heraldic Banner. cut Sorin, Vampire Lord for Ob Nixilis Reignited, and if you cut that one you should cut Sorin's Guide which should be replaced with Cordial Vampire. if you can swing it Captivating Vampire is very good and I can guarantee it will make the deck much better. Bladebrand out for Champion of Dusk super strong and could help you win the game. cut Vampire Neonate for Indulgent Aristocrat. Breaking Point out for Underworld Connections repeatable card advantage. Ill-Gotten Inheritance out for Dark Tutelage again repeatable card draw. Revenge of Ravens out for Bad Moon. and lastly Tribute to Hunger out for Intangible Virtue.
now these are all suggestions and they are just a start, and I tried to keep all the cards around a buck or less besides Captivating Vampire

Not a bad start and good job keeping your avg. cmc. down on a budget. I do have a few suggestions though and I'll try to break it down by category.
FINISHERS: Coat of Arms helps everyone and can easily backfire. Door of Destinies does nothing for your current board, requires gas after to get it to do anything, and it costs a lot of mana in an aggro deck. Consider...
Shared Animosity - Self explanatory and gross.
Mirror Entity - Anthems and +1+1 counters are added on top of base P/T.
Reconnaissance - My favorite finisher here. It allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat. Drop Throne of the God-Pharoah if you add this... they're a severe nonbo together.
CARD DRAW: Drop your 1 time card draw like Read the Bones. I run all of the below cards, they're needed. Consider...
Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down, I can help suggest cuts. Also feel free to check out my list for ideas, it's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's also over 150 comments to sift through for more ideas.

I have several suggestions for you but this is a pretty good start.
Finishers- Coat of Arms helps everyone.
Reconnaissance - Allows you to attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.
Mirror Entity - Great mana sink... plus anthems and +1+1 counters are applied after.
Draw- This is probably the most important thing in this deck. I literally run all of the below cards plus what you run... it's needed.
Anti-Wrath- 2nd most important category after draw.
Scapegoat - helps you recover from hard to dodge wraths (exile, -X-X, sac, tuck, etc.) and get your eminence triggers again or with Purphoros you can bounce your board to finish everyone off outside of combat.

I think your deck is pretty solid as it is (Upvote +1). Have you considered Champion of Dusk as a way to refill your hand along with keeping your vampire count up?

I have a few suggestions to help with your 'too aggressive' problem.
First, consider Reconnaissance . It allows you to attack with EVERY creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of your creatures untapped and ready to block and deter attackers.
It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain / Stensia Masquerade ), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an attacking creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).
The other two things that will help are lots of repeatable card draw and a few anti-wrath measures.
Also consider Shared Animosity and upping your creature count to at least 30.
