Have you considered splashing for W and going for Obzedat, Ghost Council? He is only 1 more CMC and also tend to stick boards very well. Life Drain included!

Hey, just thought I'd recommend a couple cards:
Swiftfoot Boots wouldn't hurt since kaalia draws removal like no other.
Shizo, Death's Storehouse would be a nice upgrade for a swamp.

Hey I like your list! I know you don't have 100 cards yet, but are you building Edgar as either: aggro, control/lifegain, or vampire tribal? I think aggro and tribal can go together, but its hard to do control with aggro.
Some control/lifegain cards you have: Authority of the Consuls, Blind Obedience, Campaign of Vengeance, Death Grasp, Debt to the Deathless, Exsanguinate, Teferi's Protection which are good but I think a better build for Licia, sanguine Tribune .
If you want to be more aggro/vampire tribal I'd focus on these cards: Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Captivating Vampire & Stromkirk Captain (as a 3 mana lords), Metallic Mimic & Adaptive Automaton, Rakish Heir, Vampire Nocturnus (if you make your deck mainly black), Stensia Masquerade, Urza's Incubator/ Herald’s Horn , Obelisk of Urd, Konda's Banner, Door of Destinies, Blade of the Bloodchief, and Shared Animosity (stupid expensive but really powerful) just to name a few!
If you got time, check out my list (I built it aggro/tribal focused) and leave your suggestions! :)

Interesting deck idea. I didn't consider using Queen Marchesa for just the deathtouch and haste. I do like the Human theme. I've looked over your list and I have some ideas that might help.
First thing that kinda stands out to me is the mana base. Seems a little thin. I think you should bump it up to somewhere between 35 to 38 lands. I think 36 or 37 might be better.
These are the cards I would cut to make room for more lands.
Gallows at Willow Hill, doesn't seem efficient to tap 4 cards to destroy one target. That's 3 less attackers or blockers.
Divine Verdict, Ride Down, and Smite the Monstrous are conditional spot removal. There are better options for spot removal and trading a 1-for-1 card in hand for creature on the battlefield isn't that great in multi-player.
Dropping those would let you add 4 more lands. Now with more land drops, let's look at some of the other weaker cards.
Bituminous Blast is nice spot removal and the cascade can be nice but there could be times where the cascade just gives you something that doesn't help that much. Might be better to have something more consistent.
Disentomb is another 1-for-1 trade where you get 1 card out of the graveyard for 1 card from your hand.
Diabolic Tutor is another 1-for-1 trade where you get 1 card out of the deck for 1 card from your hand.
Death Grasp is an OK card when you only have one opponent. Not good for multi-player games.
Consider the following replacements:
Death Denied instead of Disentomb. Instant speed instead of a socery, X creatures instead of just 1.
Increasing Ambition instead of Diabolic Tutor. One more mana but the flashback makes it worth it.
Exsanguinate instead of Death Grasp so that you hit everyone at the same time instead of only one person.
Additionally, what about adding a Basilisk Collar or Gorgon Flail to the deck. That would allow your Brigid, Hero of Kinsbaile to wipe the board of creatures attacking you.
Toxic Deluge is a tough call. I like it in 60 card decks like Legacy or Modern. Not sure about this deck.
Faith Unbroken, I'm undecided on this one. I see why it's in the deck. But wouldn't a Banisher Priest or Fiend Hunter be a better choice for the exile effect?
As always, temper these suggestions with your collection and your budget. Feel free to take a look at my decks and let me know what you think.

Thanks, appreciate it!
I could probably cut one of them, I had just been using Battle at the Bridge a lot on Magic Duels and liked it. But Death Grasp costing 2 mana plus the X cost will probably make it not near as good. Plus I have a lot more Life Gain to flip Lone Rider Flip than I do in duels.

Ok I made a few edits, I have Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim in my sideboard might maindeck it and put Death Grasp. I did a tournament with this deck Last Sunday and went 2-3 it's my first tiny leader deck (I know I'm a little late) but it's really my baby
