Looks cool! I'd recommend Damnable Pact as a finisher and Koskun Falls as another tax effect in your colors, since you can't get Ghostly Prison.

Are you going to insist on combos, or can it just be draw? Simply playing Damnable Pact could be good.

And perhaps Damnable Pact instead of Read the Bones.

GS10 on Elves Hanging With Meren

I love that the deck seems to be incredibly consistent. Personally I would have never taken a mana-dork-tribal route in an EDH deck but the way Meren works this seems like an awesome way to generate permanently big board states. Not the best way to attack into most decks though, but it will hold the fort until you can somehow pull the trigger and win right away.

Besides Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord and Necrotic Ooze what are your best win cons? I can see you drawing into you're whole deck with Greater Good to eventually finish a killer Living Death, but surprisingly not anything big and splashy with all the ramp you run. Something like a Torment of Hailfire, Damnable Pact or such might be nice a finishing blow especially running Devoted Druid combos. I wouldn't go full on X spells because on their own they aren't that powerful, but with all this ramp, Torment at least seems like a solid card even if it doesn't win you the game on its own.

My build is much more of a toolbox, answer all, political enough to sustain early game and controlling enough to choke people out as a win condition later on. It's fairly different and I think I probably still enjoy it better that way because of all the options and value that each card brings to the table, but I can definitely see the appeal behind this build and would no doubt love to try it out! Maybe this the way I'll try Meren on MTGO as I've been thinking about for a long time.

Painful Truths and Ancient Craving are more efficient than Damnable Pact.

Enlightened Tutor can find Sol Ring, Skullclamp, and both halves of the Exquisite Blood/Sanguine Bond combo.

Shared Triumph is a 2-mana anthem for vampires only. I think Adaptive Automaton is also very good.

I also think Teferi's Protection is a bad card. Like so bad that Lapse of Certainty might even be better, and that's a pretty bad card too.

I'm really diggin' the deck, man. It's super aggressive and seems like it'd kick some serious ass in action. However, I've noticed you've sorta gone all in on the aggro theme, which is cool but it also leaves you vulnerable in other places. I would suggest, as others already have, adding in either more boardwipes, or something like Attrition, or at least more spot removal. I'm always a huge fan of Grave Pact and Dictate of Erebos to keep the opposition from getting too far ahead.
Also, I don't know how set you are on the Vampires tribal theme, but you might want to consider putting Mentor of the Meek in for card draw. I tested him out in my deck, and he actually performed quite well with Edgar Markov's ability. If not the Mentor of the Meek, then perhaps something like Skeletal Scrying, Damnable Pact, or Ambition's Cost. Card draw is always beneficial. Awesome deck though, seems really solid.

Liliana's Caress can help you win quicker. Nihilith and Nyxathid can make for a fun surprise too if you can get enough discard going on, which shouldn't be too difficult in multiplayer. Damnable Pact becomes an offensive spell in this deck. Gnat Miser and Locust Miser help keep your opponent's hand size down.

I also recently built a Kaalia deck as my first EDH deck, mine could still use a little fine tuning but I might be able to help you out a bit.

I would agree with the cards that you have on order and the ones that you are trying to replace except maybe Nomad Outpost. If you do want to replace it you could alternatively use Command Tower which would produce the same colour mana but would not come in tapped. I would suggest some more tutor cards, eg. Diabolic Tutor and Beseech the Queen, and some more draw cards may be useful. For example, Damnable Pact, Read the Bones and Tormenting Voice. Some more board wipes may also be useful, eg. Descend upon the Sinful, Hour of Revelation and Fumigate.

I hope this helps, if you would like any more specific comments or suggestions let me know. :)
