Tutors you desperately need tutors and you have to the best two with black, Demonic Tutor which us very affordable now with the UMA reprint and Vampiric Tutor , also Diabolic Intent is perfect for this deck. Not to mention Worldly Tutor or Natural Order to find the specific creatures you need I would also suggest removing creatures like Lotleth Giant or Hatchery Spider, they're mana cost is way too high and their etbs are mediocre. Also you're running Jarad and he combos excellently with Lord of Extinction to continually throw at all your opponents, and can be reanimated over and over.

Now reanimation comes easy, so I would suggest subbing Meren of Clan Nel Toth , and ramp this damn deck needs ramp. Llanowar Elves , Fyndhorn Elves , Birds of Paradise , also take the Elves of Deep Shadow and Golgari Signet from your Golgari guild kit and throw them in there. Abrupt Decay is also a must as it has versatility like Assassin's Trophy but is uncounterable. Not to mention the Bane of Progress is a fantastic enchantment/artifact board wipe.

Speaking of board wipes, you need some in EDH so I would recommend either Toxic Deluge a sweeper which is more affordable or Damnation . Toxic Deluge is faster than Damnation however and gets around indestructible, run both for most optimal removal.

Cut down your creatures from 39 to 35 and I would suggest some infinite win-cons. Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion fit very well in a reanimation shell (basically Mike gives Trike undying to which he can infinitely throw damage at your opponents and sac himself to reset undying and do it all over again) or even the good old Necrotic Ooze combo, which is Necrotic Ooze+ Phyrexian Devourer + Triskelion which you can set up with buried alive. Get Necrotic ooze, gets both the activated abilities of Trike and Devourer hit your opponent with 1/1 counters based on the cmc of the cards your exiling from the top of your deck. Also get Protean Hulk, the creature is busted and can fetch wincons 6 cmc or less.

Card draw is also vital, I would suggest Sylvan Library or Fecundity as one is the best card for drawing in green the other is great for graveyard strategies but it does fuel your opponent as well, so play it wisely.

Any ideas look at my meren deck, it's runs many of the same ideas with more detailed descriptions on win cons etc. http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/merenating-dat-sauce/

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with every one of your creatures safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and untap every one of those creatures at the most opportune time.

It untaps to avoid bad blocks (obvious face value of the card). It also lets you untap after first strike damage but before normal combat is dealt (handy for for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and disgusting with Stromkirk Captain). Lastly, you can untap even after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step).

This combination of full tilt aggro with everyone available to block makes Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 really really good (note 'until your next turn'). Oh and consider Diabolic Intent for a great tutor here (that will never be more reasonably priced).

Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It also has over 100 comments worth of card discussion and alternative ideas in general. Feedback, Upvotes, and/or Ideas on any of my decklists is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Why?
Simply put, to speed up win condition tutoring and comboability of the deck (if that isnt a word, it is now!).

Why no Sol Ring? I'd also find room for Talisman of Dominance and Talisman of Indulgence.

Chaos Warp is one of our only answers to enchantments. Skullclamp is excellent repeatable draw. Diabolic Intent is arguably better than Demonic Tutor here and is really reasonably priced. Baleful Strix is also worth picking up for its defensive presence and the card draw.

Here are some mainly budget suggested adds:
Beastmaster Ascension - attack with prossh and 6 kobolds and they all get buffed.
Dictate of Erebos can visually be cast quicker in a three color deck before grave pact.
Journey to Eternity  Flip - some of the best budget recursion.
Pattern of Rebirth - can be used to get a combo piece like blood artist, or to get some board changer.
Champion of Lambholt - let's you make your creature almost unblockable.
Brawn and Anger are good especially in decks with built in ways to get into grave yard.
Diabolic Intent has dropped in price since reprint, it's good on token decks and cheaper than the main 2 tutors.
Primal Vigor is a viable doubling season, but only cast when ready to combo.
Phyrexian Altar has dropped to like $18, not budget but half of what it was. But Pitiless Plunderer will also work with prossh in play.
Creakwood Liege - buffs commander and makes tokens.
Smothering Abomination - good card draw in any black token deck. Sidisi, Undead Vizier easily recurable tutor.
