I would get Dark Impostor in there. You could swap out Stromkirk Condemned,Vampire Hexmage, or Vampire Nocturnus. More than half your deck isn't black cards so Vampire Nocturnus might not be as handy not to mention showing your opponent your next draw is not usually advantageous.
Purphoros, God of the Forge is kinda expensive for a chance at extra damage. Consider Brutal Hordechief; relative same cost but more bang for your buck. Along with Sanctum Seeker and say Foul-Tongue Shriek you could be doing a ton of damage.
I think you really need some card draw in there but I'm not sure how to make those changes. You could use cards like Oathsworn Vampire as a way to sacrifice a creature for cards like Altar's Reap, Carnage Altar,Costly Plunder, Dredge, Merciless Resolve, Morbid Curiosity, Phyrexian Vault, Reprocess, Skulltap, or Vampiric Rites.
Idol of Oblivion could get you some extra card draw with all of Edgar's token generation.
Drana's Emissary is also nice to have early game.

Skyler1776: Thanks for your comment! :)
Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord was in the deck from the beginning. Ajani, Strength of the Pride and Gideon Blackblade are a little bit to expansive ($$) for my budget, but I considered them before I completed deck and in my opinion, Sorin better suits the assumptions (lifelink for my creatures (in my turn), -X resurrection from graveyard, +2 damage with lifelink == another counter for creatures. My main assumption is gaining life (from lifelink, Soulmender ) to trigger Epicure of Blood , which cooperates perfectly with Ill-Gotten Inheritance and Revenge of Ravens -> Ajani, Strength of the Pride doesn't work well enough with this set. Btw sometimes I don't even have to attack, to win the game. Other creatures in my opinion are perfectly compatible with themselves.
Gideon's Company is very good card, but I decided to change it for Bloodthirsty Aerialist . It has flying, which is good way to deal damage, when opponent doesn't have any flying creatures / or to defend flying attackers.
Now I'm trying to change some lands to speed up an avalanche of 'counters'/'triggers'. ;)

Thank you king-saproling for your attention !
I'm still trying to see if if it's worth it to put Well of Lost Dreams .
For the Epicure of Blood I don't know ... may be it's too expensive for the effect ...
As for the Whip of Erebos it's a great gain if you actualy want to slain your ennemi with your creatures, and that's not the case here. But may be I'm wrong.

I'm thinking you could use Cauldron Familiar and Witch's Oven as a life gain engine to fuel your Bloodthirsty Aerialist . You also have enough cheap black creatures to ping someone with Ayara, First of Locthwain a few times per turn to help get +1/+1 counters on Knight of the Ebon Legion . Epicure of Blood and Vindictive Vampire might be good to add. Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord is going to help you power up your vampires and give them lifelink and deathtouch for the turn if they don't have it. Blood Burglar, Savage Gorger, and Dark Remedy would be my first cuts. I'd also see if there are good replacements for Disfigure and Sorin's Thirst.
