I have a few suggestions that I think would help speed this deck up and make it even deadlier than it already is.
Cards I think you could live without:
My first suggestion is to add 4 or 5 more land. 31 land is very low, especially for a four color build, and missing land drops will hinder your game plan significantly.
Second suggestion is to consider more mana ramp. Having great ramp is essential to a quick, efficient start. Starting off slow will usually get you killed.
Third suggestion is cards I like for this theme. Just a few badass toys for your deck to mess around with.
Fun card suggestions:

Suggestions for your mana base:
Bad Moon, Eternal Thirst, and Lashwrithe are fine cards but your creatures are already so huge, I don't think you need them. I would just add more ramp instead: Ashnod's Altar (also serves as a sacrifice outlet), Caged Sun, and Expedition Map (to find Cabal Coffers).
Suggestions for draw and card advantage:
It seems like a great win condition is the interaction between your Commander and Maralen of the Mornsong so I recommend more tutor and dark spells to get the combo out. Maybe switch out: Cremate, Sanguine Bond, Unholy Hunger, Abyssal Persecutor, Visions of Brutality, and Vile Requiem for Night's Whisper, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Ambition's Cost, Beseech the Queen and Viscera Seer.
Suggestions for removal spells:
Several of your removal spells cost alot of mana. To the Slaughter, Reach of Shadows, In Garruk's Wake, Dregs of Sorrow, and Annihilate could be replaced with Diabolic Edict, Hero's Downfall, Killing Wave, Malicious Affliction, and Grave Pact.

Thanks, ektoe253, for the good suggestions. Vampire's Bite makes for a nice combat trick for extra damage or killing something that needs to go. The ability to get even more value out of it mid-game makes it sweet indeed. Eternal Thirst would help give me staying power and grow my forces a bit as well, both of which this deck needs. Gifted Aetherborn looks very nice indeed. It's almost Vampire Nighthawks 4-8. One cheaper for no flying. I see real value here. It would fit very nicely in my Mono-Black Devotion deck for the same reason that the Nighthawks do.

These cards are still awkward... They have low impact on the early game, which Modern needs.
They all sum 14 slots (accounting for the 2 lands i think you should let go)... Let's say you switched them for:
Total of another 14 cards. Take a look at them. Compare their power to the other cards I said that are "awkward"... These cards all carry more weight with them. This is called card quality.
You'd be able to remove opposing threats more efficiently, make the opponent sacrifice troublesome threats you can't really remove (Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, for example). And you'd be able to preemptively disrupt their hand with more discard.
I believe building a competitive Vampire deck in Modern is hard, but possible. I just think you should focus on more efficient cards.
As for your sideboard, try to focus on beating decks you have trouble beating. Let's say you have issues against Storm or Scapeshift... then think of adding Duress or Lost Legacy in your SB. Against graveyard decks like Collected Melira, Dredge or BGx Delirium: Leyline of the Void/Relic of Progenitus. Against Tron: Pithing Needle, Rain of Tears, Duress, Thoughtseize and discard in general. Against creature-based decks (with small creatures): Drown in Sorrow/Flaying Tendrils. And so on.
Try to focus on adding cards that'll help with other decks in the meta. Blood Tribute only looks cool, but it is 6 mana to cast... and you could do many more relevant things with 6 or less mana... like Damnation or Batterskull, Wurmcoil Engine.
