Debt to the Deathless is yet another huge bomb, the biggest problem with your deck that I see, is a high curve, and not vary much ramp.
Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is a good way to get more counters, Sovereigns of Lost Alara can be quite useful if you add a couple more auras, for example: Spirit Mantle, Indestructibility, Spectra Ward, Unquestioned Authority, and Holy Mantle are all great aura's that you should add, maybe even add the new Bloodforged Battle-Axe

You can also play all mirrodin talismans, which are available in friendly colours. Every mana artifact for less than 3 mana should be considered over those with higher costs, except for huge colour fixers like Chromatic Lantern and Coalition Relic.
I would always avoid lands that come into play tapped if possible.

But being that this is green, we should be using things such as, Explosive Vegetation, Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, Rampant Growth, Farseek (this one pulls dual lands, or non forest basic lands), Primal Growth, and Cryptolith Rite.
Could also use enchantments like Exploration to help you get more land out.

Blood Baron of Vizkopa is difficult to get as good as you want him to be.
Blood Seeker is pretty whatever against decks that aren't tokens
Falkenrath Gorger needs support to really get to there, though he can be alright if you get there
Gifted Aetherborn is likely a tad more defensive than you aim to be, though I'm slightly more a fan of Nighthawk, since flying takes down most dragon-y monsters
Mirri the Cursed is sweet, but not very impactful. I can't fault anyone for wanting to run her though.
Olivia, Mobilized for War has a somewhat steep cost to grant haste, and most of your dudes are vamps already
Tithe Drinker gets a no from me, too
I was never "wowed" by Blade of the Bloodchief in Olivia, myself.
Four Sorins is going to be too many, too often. Maybe try trimming one of them to avoid drawing multiples?
If you can swing it, ABUr's and fetches have a silent impact, yet smooth out so many mana issues. Can't reccomend them enough.
That's what I saw in my first glance-through. I'd avoid running cards that only drain/gain life-- even if they're vampires-- and would instead focus on jamming more impactful cards. That said, I still run Baron Sengir for sentimentality reasons, so I can't blame you for wanting to run a few pet cards as well. I've felt for a while now that vampires are as few as two years away from being a legitimately great tribe (not that they're unplayable now), but Wizards needs to show a bit more love to them. They do suffer from a case of split-personality having been Black's iconic and characteristic race at different times. I've been running Olivia since Innistrad, and I feel your pain of making the switch to Mardu, but I'm optimistic that it'll make for a better deck. Cuts are going to be rough though, that's for certain. Check out my list if you need inspiration.
Anyhow, if you have any specific questions or thoughts, feel free to shoot me a message. I usually reply within a week, depending on how busy work gets.Cheers, and God bless.

Some people love Burnished Hart and Pilgrim's Eye. I never end up playing them. I even always end up remoiving Solemn Simulacrum, but that is also a great card. I just don't really like the semi-manadork cards.
For Queen Marchesa, I lean toward mana fixing and and ramp in the to CMC slot. These allow you to cast your Queen earlier than turn 4, and get the Monarch our early. The Signets, Mind Stone, Talisman of Indulgence, these all get cast turn 2, ramping into a turn 3 Queen Marchesa. If you want her for early board presence, early card draw, and early defense/control, concentrate on getting her out early. Your curve is much higher than mine, but every one of those cards gets you your big fatties 1 turn earlier.
As far as control goes, you could immediately and very cheaply upgrade the control elements by swapping To the Slaughter and Tribute to Hunger out for Fleshbag Marauder and Merciless Executioner. CMC isexactly the same, both can be sacrificed to themselves or you can sacrifice another creature to them, and they hit all players, not just one. Given that the other player decides, I never found that the instant speed was that important compared to hitting everyone.
I will have to think about your use of Queen Marchesa.I totally get where you are coming from. It just may take me a while to understand how to best position Queen Marchesa to stand in for Kaalia of the Vast in a midrange angels/demons deck.

Unfortunately, Red, Blue and Black are all pretty lacking in terms of mana acceleration/fixing, so the deck will be very reliant on Mana Rocks (Artifacts). Some of the best ones I know of would be all of the signets, Izzet Signet, Rakdos Signet, and Dimir Signet. Chromatic Lantern is the best color fixer ever, period. There is also Darksteel Ingot, Coalition Relic, Commander's Sphere, and Fellwar Stone. If you wanted specifically land ramp, or fixing there is Wayfarer's Bauble, Armillary Sphere, and Gem of Becoming. Hope this helps
