Feast of Blood Discussion

Your deck has a vampire them going, and I imagine it works well. If you want to improve it my first suggestion would be to replace non vampire 2 drops with Gifted Aetherborn. My next suggestion would be to get a vampire lord like Captivating Vampire or Bloodline Keeper Flip in place of more non vampire creatures. Lastly, Shriekmaw can be replaced with Murder and get many more targets. Rain of Tears is powerful, but if your focus isn't destroying lands you could make better use of Sign in Blood to either finish off your opponent or refill your hand. Duress and Distress can be uprgaded to Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek. In the same vein you could uprgade Bloodbond Vampire with Asylum Visitor or Vampire Nocturnus one last good card is Feast of Blood.

I don't think two instances of madness is enough to justify 6 discard outlets. Heir of Falkenrath Flip could be Vampire Nighthawk and Call the Bloodline could be Gifted Aetherborn, and you'd probably create more tempo that way. All in all, I don't even think red is necessary if you're not going to use Falkenrath Gorger, Olivia Voldaren, etc. Vampire Lacerator, Kalastria Highborn, Sangromancer, and Gatekeeper of Malakir are some potential alternatives to Stromkirk Captain and Stensia Masquerade. Urge to Feed and Feast of Blood might be replacements for Lightning Bolt and Stensia Banquet. Or if you needed the burn to go face, maybe try Exsanguinate or Torment of Hailfire.

Since this is rather creature heavy I would consider Stoneforge Masterwork, although I personally run Blade of the Bloodchief (though with less creatures) and try to get the most out of cards like Gatekeeper of Malakir and other destruction removal. That said either one is great to throw onto Vampire Nighthawk or other evasion creature to pack a punch. I am also fond of Feast of Blood for its thematic element as well as the 4 life you get on top of it is a nice bonus and once again since there are a lot of creatures here it shouldn't be hard to meet the requirements to cast it.

Your mana curve is really, REALLY steep for Modern, which is a fast format where you generally see maybe one 5 mana card at most in decks that aren't Tron. If you want to play lifelink vampires I suggest you try Black/White due to new Ixilan stuff as well as Sorin, but going multicolor can get expensive as you NEED fetch/shock lands to have any level of consistency. A good thing about vampires is they have a really broad range of creatures ranging from 1-4 mana so you can establish a very nice tempo, and black has access to some of the best removal in modern right now in the form of Fatal Push (like I said 85% of the format is cards that are 3 or less mana). You could also try Black/Red if you like the synergy that Stromkirk Captain has with both Gifted Aetherborn and Vampire Nighthawk. First strike is incredibly powerful, particularly when combined with deathtouch. Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is expensive in terms of mana but his effects are so powerful it's insane. You don't really have anywhere near enough 1-drops to abuse Westvale Abbey, and even then I feel Demon of Death's Gate is stronger in weenie vamps, but even then he's a sideboard card. Another tip based on experience.... Feast of Blood is the worst vampire support card in magic for so many reasons. Sorcery speed removal is bad to begin with, and needing 2 creatures to survive long enough to use it... I can't justify using this card.
I feel like you're obviously a beginer, aand fine tuning your mana curve will come with experience. I wish you luck.

The thing about Modern is unless you're playing a monocolored deck you can't really get away with using all basic lands and expect good results. If you have anything resembling a budget, the place I recommend starting is finding the cheapest fetch lands in your colors, possibly trading up, and getting ahold of a set of the fast lands and shock lands. In plain terms you'd at least want 4 each of Bloodstained Mire, Blackcleave Cliffs and Blood Crypt. In interest of working on a budget I'll mention Dragonskull Summit isn't the best dual land but it did just get reprinted. Yes... Modern unfortunately has a pretty steep buy-in, mostly in lands, but once you have them they'll be used in many, many future projects.
Now... Where to start with your card choices? I understand and can very much see this is a work in progress, so I'll just be honest with you and say most of these are just... kinda bad, no offense.
Okay, I'll list off some better choices with synergy: you have Falkenrath Gorger. That's a step in the right direction. Next up I'd take a look at the following cards: Stromkirk Condemned, Stromkirk Captain. These two plus Gorger lets your guys get huge fast and makes them significantly harder to kill in combat, especially since off of Gorger you can flash in Captain as you're attacking so your Gorger and Condemned are suddenly a pair of 4 power first strike fatties on turn 3. The next two are Bloodghast and Asylum Visitor. Both are good discard options with or without Gorger and Visitor is 3 power for 2 CMC, and also a pseudo Dark Confidant if you play her correctly. Almost literally everything this deck could want in a 2 drop. The next two are beaters that function as discard outlets to keep the flow of your deck running steady: Heir of Falkenrath and Smuggler's Copter. Yes, a vehicle. I recommend Heir to anyone who can't afford Liliana of the Veil. It's a cheaper and much more aggressive way to discard, besides being a 2 mana version of Delver of Secrets for vamps.
Those enchantments are terrible. Call the Bloodline is my pick for the worst vampire support card in existence that's not Feast of Blood (that card is all kinds of terrible). For your noncreatures, it's your call in regard to draw spells but I'd only keep Faithless Looting at most. For removal, you want mostly generic stuff. Try and trade for a set of Fatal Push, Lightning Bolt and Terminate, then mix/match them as your meta dictates. Kolaghan's Command if you can get one might be useful as a one-of. It's not a great card but for flavor/support you can play around with Urge to Feed as well.
After all is said and done, with any space you have left, you can try to squeeze in as many Vampire Nocturnus, Gatekeeper of Malakir, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, or Olivia, Mobilized for War as you want. I like the idea of a one-of Captivating Vampire if most of your guys are small. You could main or even side Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Olivia Voldaren, both of which are strong enough to side or sometimes main in non-vampire meta decks. Kalastria Highborn or Viscera Seer can be okay insurance cards if you're fearing a boardwipe.
I think the most important thing I'll tell you here is that too many discard outlets is bad. Don't fret too much about madness or not, you have gorger, and if you can save up for bloodghast/visitor you should be fine. You don't wanna be casting your killspells at sorcery speed too often. This is why if you can only take one Bolt is better than Fiery Temper.

MizzMizz, glad you were finally able to upload your deck! Looks pretty good! Here are some cards you may not have considered yet!?
Having a sac outlet like Yahenni, Undying Partisan or Ashnod's Altar or Falkenrath Aristocrat can be great with other Blood Artist effects if you wanted to also add Falkenrath Noble and Zulaport Cutthroat as well. Its also very good with cards like Insurrection.
You should check out any of the new cards from Ixalan too and keep an eye out for Rivals for more vampires. Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle, Sanctum Seeker, and Legion's Landing Flip are all great new additions

I really like the use of One with Nothing. The thing with the deck is it looks like it is trying too hard to do too much all at once. With just two cards here and two cards there, you lack consistency in play. Try to find the cards that work the best together and use 3 or 4 of them. Unless your opponent / meta is really into things like Surgical Extraction, there's really no reason to not do it this way.
For example, if you are trying to not only discard a card AND pay it's Madness cost AND pay Olivia's Bloodsworn's ability, that's basically going to be the same as if you just played the card. You're using you resources in a non-efficient manner.
And while Ravenous Bloodseeker may be appealing at first, unless you are using cards like Distemper of the Blood, your Bloodseeker is going to end up dying to a 1/1 chump blocker. You can protect her with a Stromkirk Captain, but you don't have them in here. So, she's going to die.
BTW a great removal for a Vampire tribal deck is Feast of Blood and you should always run 4x.
But back on point, it may be harder to bring out Stromkirk Condemned over Ravenous Bloodseeker because you require two specific colors () rather than a generic and one specific (), but Stromkirk boosts all of your Vamps - therefore he is more effective, and more effective = better.
You have a really good base to work with. Keep play testing and find out which cards combo the best together, and which cards ultimately feel "slow", "sluggish" or "off". Replace those cards with the ones that you find work the best with others.
