Here are some suggestions:

Stromkirk Captain (Pump those vamps up fam!)

Merciless Resolve (all those tokens can be put to good use!)

Child of Night (Low cost lifelinker, cant ask for much better)

Indulgent Aristocrat (Low cost, lifelinker, sac outlet yaaas)

Door of Destinies (As long as this is on the board your vamps will look like tanks)

Vampire Nighthawk (2/3 for 3 with 3 effects? literally best valueâ„¢)

Tithe Drinker (Extort, lifelink, vampire, thats some good stuffs right there)

Gifted Aetherborn (Like vampire nighthawk, but on foot)

Coat of Arms (Arms, Legs, teeth, sangromancy, same difference right?)

Blind Obedience (Bow down to your vampiric overlords)

Hi Astra1

Modern has a massive card pool, as an example there are 1744 mono black cards. Your deck contains cards which have strictly better alternatives within the modern pool. For example Child of Night, is bettered by Gifted Aetherborn or Murder is bettered by Hero's Downfall, though in reality for removal Victim of Night, Smother or Fatal Push are preferable.

Modern is frequently described as a turn four format, this means that on turn 4 you are setup to win or you are winning. This means that cards which cast 4 or more mana need to have a significant impact on the game state. I'm bringing this up because it hits on the crux of the issue with your deck Sanguine Bond, Exquisite Blood and Diabolic Tutor are all too slow for modern without some form of mana ramp.

One of the colours that does mana ramp is Red, which also happens to be a colour vampires are in. The other ramp colour is green, or you could try artifact based options.

I hope this helps, have fun brewing your deck.

With you're description I'm not sure you fully understand how Baron Von Count works. He doesn't care what their converted mana cost is. All he cares about are the numerals printed on the card. For example Nirkana Cutthroat has 1,2,3,4,5 printed somewhere on the card. So no matter where the counter is on the Baron it would go down one. Shriekmaw only has 1,2,3,4 printed on it. Also be careful as the Planeswalker starting count does NOT count as it is not within what Baron looks at. For example Sorin Markov only has 1,2,3 printed on it, and the 4 does not count (yes the numeral 1 counts from the printed "life total becomes 10").

You have a lot of Un-cards that don't really help Baron. If you're just looking to play the cards then they are fine to keep in. You also have a few ok cards in the deck that also only provide a few numbers for the Baron.

I've tried building my own deck Count from 5. I've also compiled a spreadsheet to help me add cards to my deck counting the numbers 1,2,3,4,5 on different cards:

I'm looking at my own list of creatures right now and just thinking about how, yeah I still want most of my creatures to be little guys, but how as the game goes on they're just going to smash into big creatures and die over time if I don't have my enchantments out. I know the whole point of my deck is my creatures are disposable pawns, but I'm thinking of replacing a few cards like Bloodcrazed Neonate and Child of Night with things that have evasion.

Some suggestions.

Replace Bloodcrazed Neophyte. If you want a 2/1 CMC 2 vampire, get Child of Night or Tithe Drinker. Bloodghast is definitely the best to add but it ain't cheap and you don't have much in the way to abuse it's easy recursion mechanic.

Go for the Throat is really scene dependent, if you do see Artefact Creatures, Condemn Terminate Murder or even better, Hero's Downfall are easy replacements.

Blinding Flare is really not doing you many favours and super situation. Anguished Unmaking or Utter End (both, both is super good) will straight up remove the threat for you and even adds more control over things you are seem weak to deal with.

Really Dislike Damnable Pact, I'd suggest replacing it with a more economic draw like Sign in Blood or Night's Whisper.

Death's grasp. If you want more creature killing power, add one of the removal I've already suggested, if you want to drain players, Debt to the Deathless.

I prefer more control over what is getting removed than what Consuming vapors offers really. You are in the 3 best colours for spot removal.

Again, don't like Skeletal Scrying, but you have a fair bit of draw so how about some recursion? Oversold Cemetery or Phyrexian Reclamation plays into Edgar's hands, providing you with vampires to recast and get more tokens. If you do want instant speed draw, Merciless Resolve is perfect. You're making shit loads of tokens so can put them to good use.

Vampiric Fury is super situational, but I do like it. I do think Stensia Masquerade is better though, mainly because it sticks around for more than one turn and can put things heavily in your favour.

Faith's Reward is definitely a hit or miss card. Sure, everyone should be running board wipes (You really should slot some into this deck as emergency buttons) but it's just, I'm not a fan. It would be my first cut to put a board wipe in like Wrath of God, Merciless Eviction or the likes.

Dark Prophecy is super bad for it's mana cost, definitely a mono-black deck card. I'd suggest Phyrexian Arena or Underworld Connections or Greed Instead.

The Curses do you no favours really. Well Vitality could. But I'd much rather replace them for some anthems. Dictate of Heliod, Cathars' Crusade, even Spear of Heliod for it's rattlesnake effect are all ways to get more productivity out of your tokens. For something more thematic and possibly easier to get a hold of, Campaign of Vengeance is both thematic and will mess people up with how many dorks you can swing with.

The Rings aren't great. I'd put back in Heirloom Blade and then slot in a tutor. Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor or Diabolic Tutor.

Since you have lots of procs with Eddy thanks to Anointed Procession i'd recommend Yahenni, Undying Partisan too possibly against Child of Night, she would be the same as Falkenrath Aristocrat.

Both Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet will also find a good use in your deck, and they will proc with the procession as well.

I would recommend Vampire Nocturnus but that might go unreliable in mardu instead of rakdos.

Both Rakdos Charm and Boros Charm could find use.

The Kindred Dominance off the Wizard precon is a nice little one-sided boardwipe too.

Yeeeeeah, probably wouldn't get a jund vamp any time soon. Haha. My man prefers Jund too, He's holding out for a better Wearwolf legend honestly, though vamps are a close second to him. I'm hoping to get a Jund one.

As for what to cut, Campaign of Vengeance didn't make the cut for my deck. I would keep an eye on it and remove it if under preforming. A few of your creatures such as Child of Night don't really do much. If you still want to get an Edgar proc with the slot, I would replace with Crib Swap.
