Modern huh? Unless you wanna do a sacrifice engine you're better going Rakdos or Mardu.
Vamps also wanna run pretty light on mana in either case. 3 or less cost = good, use 4+ mana cards very sparingly. Like Sanguine/Exquisite are simply too slow to be good imo.
Now, depending on your budget, you could do something like.....
4 Viscera Seer , 4 Bloodghast , 4 Blood Artist or Kalastria Highborn , 4 Cordial Vampire , maybe 4 Vampire Nocturnus or Vampire Lacerator and 2 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet or Captivating Vampire , or maybe even 4 Dusk Legion Zealot or Gatekeeper of Malakir .
For hate spells, usable ones are things like Fatal Push , Lightning Bolt , Path to Exile , Terminate , Cast Down , Kolaghan's Command , or if you have money, Liliana of the Veil , Liliana, the Last Hope , and also to bring him up on this subject: Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord . Hand disruption is expensive, looking at Thoughtseize , Inquisition of Kozilek , and Collective Brutality . But black has almost a monopoly on that.
Hope this gave you some insight. Welcome to the dark side.

How would you feel about using Knight of the Ebon Legion and/or Vampire of the Dire Moon instead Vampire Lacerator and\or Stromkirk Noble ? And what about Cordial Vampire ? We are getting lots of new options these days.

Any thoughts on the new Cordial Vampire ? Does it belong in this deck?

You might want some cards such as Cordial Vampire , Kalastria Highborn , Sanctum Seeker , Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , Pawn of Ulamog (replacement for Sifter of Skulls , Legion Lieutenant , Stromkirk Captain , Drana's Emissary , Malakir Bloodwitch , Necropolis Regent , Cliffhaven Vampire (combine with lifelink for infinite damage + life), Rakish Heir , Indulgent Aristocrat , Bloodlord of Vaasgoth , and Defiant Bloodlord .
BTW What is the FNM EDH meta like at Cerberus? I'm about to complete my Angelhorde Invasion deck so anything that would help in the meta or a rough idea of some of the meta decks would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

In regards to the following suggestions:
Sadly Cruel Celebrant has a few problem:
Casting cost having an additional white, making it not fit into Razaketh, the Foulblooded lines as we cannot efficiently generate this mana during a combo line.
Not being clamp-able, minor issue since it also generates a vampire token which can be clamped, which it is better than Zulaport Cutthroat in that respect.
But overall not fitting into the combo line makes it worse than cards already within the list.
In regards to Cordial Vampire it might be considerable in a group where more stax is played or creatures are more relevant and could plausible win condition. But in general attacking with a few duders isn't going to win most games, neither is it our primary game plan, as it does very little in regards to dealing with decks such as Shufflehulk, Urza, sisay, e.c.t.
In regards to Knight of the Ebon Legion this card was never considered, it doesn't do enough for progressing the game plan of the deck, neither acting a clampable body nor, whilst having a lot, it does not have any relevant text.
In regards to Vampire of the Dire Moon the card I believe at the moment is an upgrade, as Deathtouch is a form of evasion in some cases, it is also a clampable body and a life-linker to off put some damage.

Hmmm as for what to cut I'm in a similar place. He's a definite four-of if I'm not using Liliana, still a 3 if I am. The "version 2" of my deck is way closer to your more control-oriented shell. I'm ironing out the wrinkles still, there are too many vamps now worthy of a slot. I remember when I ran 14 mainboard turn 1 creatures, seriously. Cordial Vampire is a really good card imo too because he paints a target on his head for removal and punishes opponents for getting trigger happy with their bolts. Also besides IoK and Thoughtseize, Rakdos has REALLY gotten a lot of POWERFUL control options recently, many synergize with Ghast. We had Terminate and Lightning Bolt already, then we got Liliana of the Veil in the same set as Olivia and crew, then Liliana, the Last Hope , Kolaghan's Command , Fatal Push and Collective Brutality . Oh and now Unearth is legal. Liliana's Triumph and Cast Down on the power creep train.
I was kinda ehh over Zealot at first, but I mean draw power is at a premium, and he's a vamp who affects the game upon coming into play, a removal on him is pointless. I'm seriously on the fence over Legion Lieutenant being worth an entire white splash.
Oh and My Chikage/Evelyn l100 build recently got a full set of 32.6% blood damage gems via new breakthroughs in chalice dungeon farming. The Holy Grail of blood gems according to the community. I use the BoM w/ brainsucker nourishing flat arcanes as a secondary for r1 spammers and speed control. This build is terrifying. A vampire who can 2-shot 120s with a parry tool. I've also been really fond of the Charred hunter set because it has decent stats and I look like Victorian Batman.

Ok, I'm back on request. The main thing that needs a little work is lowering your avg cmc and a bit more card draw is needed imo.
Anowan, Both Sorins, Eerie Interlude, Hour of Devastation, Commander's Sphere, Orzhov Cluestone, Diabolic Tutor, Blood Tracker, and Vanquishers Banner.
Adds: Cordial Vampire , Dark Prophecy , Orzhov Signet / Fellwar Stone (or Talismans), Diabolic Intent , Sorin, Solemn Visitor , Austere Command , Dusk Legion Zealot , Skullclamp , and Shared Animosity .
That'll take away 16 mana or about .23 off your avg. cmc (rough educated guess).
No data for this card yet.
