Rally the Ancestors works better than Return to the Ranks if your deck is full of one-drops and has a wincon that doesn't care about the exile clause (Falkenrath Aristocrat, Impact Tremors, hell even Mortician Beetle or Champion of the Parish if you build correctly), because you can sacrifice all your weenies, Rally them back for , them sac them all again. The thing is, if you need those creatures for anything other than ETB effects or extra sac fodder, it puts you in a bad spot. If it said "exile those creatures at end of turn" instead of "at your next upkeep", then it'd be incredible. As it is... hardly Modern viable.

This looks absolutely great! +1
I was wondering, how is Stromkirk Captain working out for you? I've been considering running it in mine but I'm afraid that he might be too slow. I'm also surprised to see that you're not running more copies of Falkenrath Aristocrat. They have been absolutely stellar in my version and close out the game nicely.
Would you mind checking out my list if you get the chance? It could be found here: Budget Modern: Fangin' and Bangin'. I'm on a budget so your deck is obviously much more tuned but I would appreciate some pointers based on your experience.

Thanks! All the cards mentioned are most definitely worth considering and I need to do some testing to figure out what's optimal.
The main thing I like about Altar's Reap is that it's an instant, but the deck may not have enough instant-speed effects that leaving up mana is relevant, so it's entirely possible Sign in Blood is slightly better in most situations.
Phyrexian Rager and Nantuko Husk certainly seem like a near auto-include if there's find room for them, and I'm still trying to decide if Thermopod is actually worth a slot or if it's just me trying too hard to emulate Butcher of the Horde and Falkenrath Aristocrat.
Appreciate the input!

Awesome deck. A few suggestions you may have already thought of: Bloodsoaked Champion is pretty strong as a card that works pretty as a few additional copies of Bloodghast. Additionally Dark Deal seems pretty strong as both a source of card cycling, and hurting your opponents strategy if you can use it when they want their hand. If you went a little farther mid-range, Falkenrath Aristocrat is a pretty strong sac outlet that could serve the same purpose as Viscera Seer, albeit at much higher mana cost, but it synergizes very well with recurring creatures.

If you want to make this more competitive:
You need to decide what do you want to build?
1# A traditional vampire tribal aggro deck
2# A vampire tribal deck leaning to the midrange side using more (or more effective) controll, and building up bigger creatures than the aggro variant.
You need to get rid of Captivating Vampire every card in this deck is something i would choose over him. And Vampire Nocturnus or red cards... you cannot use both effectively in the same deck.
If you have no option to tutor - like Beseech the Queen, or draw a LOT of cards with spells like Read the Bones / Sign in Blood (you will probably need at least 6 draw spells in my experience), it would be more helpful to have 4 of each vampire you play in your deck, you need to cut the variations, it makes you inconsistent if you have no other way than drawing at the beginning of the upkeep to acces what you need.
If you choose the aggro route, you could keep your instants, and ideally you would run 4 of each of the following creatures: Bloodghast; Guul Draz Vampire; Rakish Heir; Vampire Lacerator (what i am trying to say is to play cheap and agressive vampires only, or ones that have,, haste/make your creatures that are alread on the field stronger.. i am looking at you Stromkirk Captain). Also consider adding something that help you clear the way for you vampires, if the match goes on longer, like Nightbird's Clutches.
If you want to play the sacrifice requiring vampires, then please play Bloodsoaked Champion, he is a human (and you can sac and revive him multiple times in 1 turn), Blade of the Bloodchief, this makes things like Falkenrath Aristocrat; Bloodthrone Vampire viable. Also you can make good use for the new black mana elf, Gnarlroot Trapper to get you colorless mana, or as food for the vampires. Retribution of the Ancients can aslo work wonders in this kind of deck.
Or you could make a vampire deck on the longer end of midrange decks, like i did, and base it on the buffing of your smaller vampires with lords, to overwhelm your opponent.
Here is a link to my deck if you are interested: Null profused turbo Vampires
You are playing , so you can play Rakdos Charm instead of Relic of Progenitus.
Take your time planning a good sideboard, it can make quiet a difference.

Ha that's a pretty Kool idea with Falkenrath Aristocrat
Yeah that's true bout erase I forgot that modern has more artifacts. I'll keep an eye out for some of those Revoke Existence
In Damnable Pact defense you waste one less mana paying hard cost and benefit one more card. Sure you loose some life but it's all about timing. I mean only if your a bad kid would you slam it down wen there's a field full of monsters. Just try it out, I beat one of my opponents who was running American splinter twin. We were both top decking then I top decked a Damnable Pact drew some Siege Rhino, Utter End, Ultimate Price. The dude drew into his Pestermite I priced it. Then top decked his splinter twin. Lol
