I've honestly never seen Kaalia of the Vast before, but damn is it a fine card! I think what you shoudl focus on is abusing the heck out of her ability to cheat HUGE creatures onto the battlefield, turn four if all goes well. Whichever you pick depends on your play style, but some cards I think would be particularly nice to cheat onto the battlefield with her are: Tariel, Reckoner of Souls, Iona, Shield of Emeria, Visara the Dreadful, Demon of Death's Gate, Razaketh, the Foulblooded and *Rune-Scarred Demon*. Oh, I'm very excited about this card now! But yeah invest some time in checking out all the ridiculous creatures you can put on the field with that bad boy!

Your mana curve is really, REALLY steep for Modern, which is a fast format where you generally see maybe one 5 mana card at most in decks that aren't Tron. If you want to play lifelink vampires I suggest you try Black/White due to new Ixilan stuff as well as Sorin, but going multicolor can get expensive as you NEED fetch/shock lands to have any level of consistency. A good thing about vampires is they have a really broad range of creatures ranging from 1-4 mana so you can establish a very nice tempo, and black has access to some of the best removal in modern right now in the form of Fatal Push (like I said 85% of the format is cards that are 3 or less mana). You could also try Black/Red if you like the synergy that Stromkirk Captain has with both Gifted Aetherborn and Vampire Nighthawk. First strike is incredibly powerful, particularly when combined with deathtouch. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is expensive in terms of mana but his effects are so powerful it's insane. You don't really have anywhere near enough 1-drops to abuse Westvale Abbey, and even then I feel Demon of Death's Gate is stronger in weenie vamps, but even then he's a sideboard card. Another tip based on experience.... Feast of Blood is the worst vampire support card in magic for so many reasons. Sorcery speed removal is bad to begin with, and needing 2 creatures to survive long enough to use it... I can't justify using this card.
I feel like you're obviously a beginer, aand fine tuning your mana curve will come with experience. I wish you luck.

The purpose of Dying Wish would be to attach it to a Demon of Death's Gate so that should I use a Rite of Consumption on him after I maybe have attacked there's a chance for ending the game due to dealing lethal damage. It will likely be remaining in side board in real world play, however I wanted to throw it into the main board for here so I could see how it would work

Another tip: Westvale Abbey is outclassed pretty strongly in Modern by a card that used to be commonplace in vamps: Demon of Death's Gate, who might honestly be a viable side again since so little removal kills him besides like Terminate, Walk the Plank, and Path to Exile. Dismember, Lightning Bolt, Abrupt Decay, Kolaghan's Command and Fatal Push don't kill him.

Your mana curve is far higher than your amount of lands can account for. I would consider adding more lands until you have around 38 or so. Is this a budget deck? If it's not, please consider
Cavern of Souls,Badlands,Underground Sea,Volcanic Island,Blood Crypt,Watery Grave,Steam Vents,Most Fetches, and Bojuka Bog. If you were to add these, either consider removing the bounce lands or add Amulet of Vigor to try to counteract the "enters tapped" clause.
If you'd want some more "tribal" ideas, you could look through Angelic Devotion.
