Nice list. Your deck might enjoy running Dragon Breath as it's free haste and fire-breathing for your commander. If I were you I'd also run Terminate over Doom Blade. Crux of Fate also goes pretty well given your commander is a dragon which would probably hit more of your opponent's creatures than Languish. Commander's Sphere is good but Dragon's Hoard would work better since you could draw more cards with it without losing the mana rock to do so. Grasp of Fate is another good card that you could replace Banishing Light with. You should also replace Cruel Edict with Diabolic Edict as that card can be played at instant speed.

Diabolic Edict and Fevered Convulsions are two more Greven cards.

+1 for Edgar Markov, one of the most badass Vamp Boss around.

I'd recommend lowering the CMC of the deck to around 3 or less if able to hasten the pace at which your treats hit the board.

Vampires

Some useful vampires you can consider:

Blood Seeker

Bloodthrone Vampire doubles up as a sac outlet, interacts well with Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos and Butcher of Malakir (though this card's CMC is too high for my liking).

Dusk Legion Zealot and 1 life for 2 1/1 bodies and 1 card, pretty good deal.

Elenda, the Dusk Rose synergizes well with the self sacrifice theme should you run Grave Pact et al. ALso helps ensure you've some board presence should you be hit with a board wipe.

Falkenrath Noble cause I can't get enough of Blood Artist

Gatekeeper of Malakir for Diabolic Edict on a stick. Pretty good though the may be a strain on a triple color deck.

Gifted Aetherborn An uncommon with Deathtouch, Lifelink, with P/T of 2/3 for just , nuff said.

Legion Lieutenant Vampire Lord is sexy.

Vampire Hexmage a.k.a Planeswalker Nemesis!

Viscera Seer one of my all time favorite, Sac outlet and Scry in 1 card.

Have you thought about Diabolic Edict, after its M25 reprint, it's fairly cheap and definitely an effective removal spell

FancyTuesday on Web of Inertia Vs. Graveyard ...

Web of Inertia doesn't use the word "target" so it doesn't target anything. Permanents can be chosen by players without being "targeted" as long as they're worded correctly, this is why you can Clone creatures with shroud.

Technically Web of Inertia creates a triggered ability that triggers at the beginning of your opponent's combat phase with an intervening if clause. It's not "an additional cost" as a term of art in MTG rules, though it acts similar to an additional cost. The trigger fires at the beginning of their combat step, they are given an option to do something (exile a card from their graveyard), if they don't they can't do something (attack you).

I dig the sideboard tech a lot, pjeseb.

Cool theme, too.

Arashin Cleric seems good in the sideboard against Burn and Atog, as does Crimson Acolyte. Soul's Attendant is also good against Burn and Mono-Black. Kithkin Zealot is good against Mono-Black. Disenchant may be better than Sanctifiers against fast decks like Bogles. I'd also sideboard Scarab Feast against 5C Tron.

I'd play some combination of Celestial Flare, Geth's Verdict and Diabolic Edict mainboard against Bogles and Atog. Maybe Chainer's Edict in a pinch.

Foul-Tongue Shriek might be a cool, surprise closer.

Have fun!

Diabolic Edict totally isn't legal in modern.. neither is Pernicious Deed actually.

I think some combination of Metallic Mimic with less Animation Module would be real strong. It just floods the board with 2/2s for all the mana you have. Also, Avatar of the Resolute should likely be an auto include.

Mistcutter Hydra is probably best in the sideboard as maybe a 2 of. Primordial Hydra, although stupid strong, often just doesn't cut it in modern. He's maybe still worth a try, but I'd stick around that 2 mark. Managorger Hydra might benefit extremely from some phyrexian mana spells like Dismember or Mutagenic Growth just to instantly negate lightning bolts flying at it.

Are you set on green and black? It could go either way (Mono-Green or B/G); you definitely get better removal with black and maybe Winding Constrictor.
