Hey, Worldgorger Dragon combo could replace Iona. Emergence Zone could replace Sanctuary. Reanimation is a good secondary strategy with Kaalia and reanimation is what enablers Worldgorger combo. Bogardan Hellkite can be a win condition with the Worldgorger combo and Kaalia can cheat Hellkite onto the battlefield. The Worldgorger combo would give you an alternative way to win the game which has synergy with Kaalia and strategies you want to play with Kaalia.
Cards to consider adding for Worldgorger combo:
- Enablers: Necromancy, Dance of the Dead, Emergence Zone
- Win Conditions: Bogardan Hellkite, Sunscorched Desert, Cut / Ribbons
Other cards to consider adding:
- Phyrexian Reclamation: repeatable recursion for Kaalia so she doesn't have to keep going to the Command Zone. Combine the repeatable recursion with hand/wheel discard to have more access to putting big creatures into your hand to cheat them onto the battlefield with Kaalia.
- Dark Ritual
- Faithless Looting
- Buried Alive
- Arcane Signet
- Exotic Orchard
- Forbidden Orchard
Cards to consider cutting:
- Seraph Sanctuary
- Dragonskull Summit
- Clifftop Retreat
- Isolated Chapel
- Iona, Shield of Emeria
- Archfiend of Depravity
- Ob Nixilis, Unshackled
- Lord of the Void
- Angelic Arbiter
- Baneslayer Angel
- Merciless Eviction
- Duelist's Heritage
- Strionic Resonator
- Utter End
Good luck with your deck.

Some cards that I use in my Meren deck that I get a ton of mileage out of:
Birthing Pod - Not the cheapest but if you've only been playing for 1-2 months and you've already got Grave Pact, etc. it should be in reach. Great to tutor up/upgrade to the next creature of need while building up exp counters. Eldritch Evolution is a cheaper one shot of this.
Noxious Gearhulk - Removal and lifegain on a decent beater.
Doom Whisperer - Cheap flyer that can fill your graveyard with creatures to recur.

I think your gameplan here doesn't need to have late-game like you added to your deck. A finisher or two, sure, but Doom Whisperer and your buffed vampires should take care of that. Your gameplan should be to shut down the opponent's gameplan, and then win fast before they can recover. To that end, I would take out the two you've added in.
I get the feel that you're playing best-of-one, so I won't comment on the sideboard cards being mainboarded (except that I just did...), but there are some other cards that we can upgrade.
Agonizing Remorse is an imitation-Thoughtseize from the new set, and despite not being able to cast it for one mana, I feel it far out-performs Specter's Shriek, which more often than not leads to two-for-oneing yourself.
While we're talking about two-for-ones, pretty much every adventure card from Throne of Eldraine is one, and in any case, Murderous Rider's ability to target planeswalkers already makes it better than plain Murder.
I'm not super-hyped on Yarok's Fenlurker, but you defend it pretty well and it's not my deck, so if it's working for you, keep it.
22 lands feels low to me. In any case, 22 swamps is a no-no. Castle Locthwain is strictly better than a swamp, and can help you with that nasty problem of resorting to topdecking.
whew that's a lot of comment! Just one last thing. Your deck has a lot of two-ofs. If you look at highly successful decklists, they run 4 copies of most of their cards, because that increases consistency. I get that in best-of-one it's good to have wide sideboard-like cards in the mainboard, but you also need to be consistent. Try taking out some of your cards, and increasing numbers of others. I think you'll be more consistent this way.

Thanks for the suggestions. I agree the removal isn't stellar.
I do like the idea of using Doom Whisperer to beef up a flying menace AND an unblockable

This deck needs better removal - Murderous Rider is almost essential. Removing PW and creatures at instant speed- while also being a 2/3 lifelinker against aggro.
I also highly recommend Doom Whisperer as he is a huge body and can surveil as often as you need. Play a Spybug on 2 and slam Whisperer on 5 with say 16 life left can put 7 counters on Spybug for a potentially lethal swing, out of nowhere.
