Hi :), I first started with vampires and its a load of fun. not a bad vampire deck to start, although I have a couple suggestions that I hope may be able to help out.
The first suggestion I have is a card called Radiant Destiny which is very useful if your going the full on vampire creature route. 4x Radiants would be very well what you need to help those vampires to become stronger.
My biggest concern is your mana curve, capping at 5 being the most is similar to the opposite of what vampires are kinda meant to be. Quick and deadly.
Maybe try something more like this. Hope it helps out a bit more :)
(based on mana that is)
Thats about all i can think of. I don't think it completely adds up to 60 cards but slightly more but vampires do not need lots of lands because they-re generally fast but around 20-22 lands should work hopefully. 24 is best to if you can find stuff to take out extra.
I hope some of this helps out from an previous vampire player. I wish you the best of luck and hope the matches will play out well :)

You're already running a lot of knights, so making the deck a knight tribal deck in addition to a legends deck would be feasible. Here are some legends I would include:
1 or 2 x Josu Vess, Lich Knight
To support knight tribal:
And also strong legendary spells:
I'm not sure how much red puts in the work in this sort of build. If do go for knight tribal you may want to go Orzhov.

I love the deck! I get that the 1 mana self sacking creatures paired with Athreos, God of Passage must be insane with the drain triggers (or 3 life to the face) but did you consider running the likes of Cartel Aristocrat Bloodsoaked Champion Lingering Souls in a more aristocrats style deck? Cartel Aristocrat your free sac outlet will constantly have protection in this deck, Bloodsoaked Champion has recursion so you can keep casting, if they take the athreos damage you can play him again, if they don’t take the damage you guessed it you can play him again. Lingering Souls is just one of the best cards in modern for BW sac fodder, flyers and recursion.
Continuing this way does open you up to Xathrid Necromancer because of the humans but I’ve never found it to work out that well myself. Elenda, the Dusk Rose is another option to crank up the tokens by doing what you’re doing anyway but I imagine Teysa is a better filler for that drop anyway.
Vizkopa Guildmage basically gives you pay three mana and double your drain, before you sack the board that would be devastating.
Another human with great synergy for the deck humanless or not is Qarsi Sadist

In regards for tuning for competitive play, if going all out the fast efficient mana rocks. The standard usual Mana Crypt , Mox Diamond , Chrome Mox , Sol Ring , Mana Vault should be included. All tutors for consistency ex. Vampiric Tutor , Demonic Tutor , Diabolic Intent , Imperial Seal , Grim Tutor , Enlightened Tutor , Worldly Tutor , and I would also include Idyllic Tutor .
Next would be your main avenue for balancing your combo pieces. You need the life gain, so running all your soul sister effects are priority. I would run pretty much only the one drop ex. Soul Warden , Essence Warden , Soul's Attendant , and Deathgreeter . Both Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat doubles as your win cons when you have every thing set up. You also need to set up ways to proc Ghave when your Carnival is on the field so in goes Ivy Lane Denizen , Elenda, the Dusk Rose , Juniper Order Ranger , and Champion of Lambholt . All of these ones can lead to infinite triggers and than infinite tokens.
Card draw is fairly important, so the usual engines are in ex. Sylvan Library and Necropotence . With having non-token creatures dying, you have them listed but they will also go in, ex. Midnight Reaper and Dark Prophecy . Dark Confidant will also go in with the low CMC curve. Skullclamp will also be an outlet for you as well to draw out your whole deck. You can test it out but Mentor of the Meek can be an outlet as well.
Protection for your combo pieces are important. Riftsweeper should be included and Pull from Eternity only if you are dealing with a lot of exile effects. Silence has always been super helpful, and since there will be a lot of enchantment type effects you can consider running Greater Auramancy in conjunction with Sterling Grove . Sterling Grove also helps tutor for Carnival when needed.
The rest of the cards can be filled with either similar effects, interaction, or advantage.
Now going for your "Carousel" effect with Athreos. For this you would have to go with the infinite mana route, I would be adverse in going this route as it dilutes too much of the "Carnival" route. With the infinite mana you would need to add in cards like Phyrexian Altar , Ashnod's Altar , or Earthcraft in order for you to gain infinite mana. With that as well you need cards that will bring your creatures back to the battlefield or hand, so Phyrexian Reclamation , Corpse Dance , Disturbed Burial can be considered.
There can be probably more things I can think of but accept this short response before I take a more indepth look at it when I not sleepy lolol
