Gift of Orzhova Discussion

You don't have a lot of consistency to be honest. You might want more duplicates of the same card and not so many one-ofs. I wouldn't play a card really unless I had at least two or three of them. Mana curve is another thing to consider all though yours isn't that bad. And I would assume you wouldn't want to make the deck too strong and over priced :P Maybe 4 Vampire Nighthawk. More Anguished Unmaking, more Dark Ritual, more Blood Baron of Vizkopa. could focus on devotion with 4x Gray Merchant of Asphodel Gift of Orzhova. I dont think you need life link enchantments, should just use life link creatures. Anyway some cool and cheap cards to also consider maybe Obzedat, Ghost Council Unmake Oblivion Ring Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Debt to the Deathless Crypt Ghast Victim of Night Murder Tribute to Hunger Mortify

Gift of Orzhova Got downshifted to common. May be a bit slow comparatively, but I have a soft spot for the card.

I never realized how many Vampire Allies there were that worked that well together! The first card that popped to mind was Sanguine Bond. Its an instant "Oh Sh*$" moment for your opponent when they see that come out. Gift of Orzhova would be beneficial as well

You currently have no means of putting Haakon, Stromgald Scourge onto the field, as you have no means of pulling him out from the graveyard and he can't be played from your hand. Unless you include a means of doing so, consider dropping him. Similarly, Enduring Renewal is not helping you here at all. You have no means of reanimating, so you would be hurting yourself with its use.
Right now you have a lot of Knights that pretty much only have Protection from White, and don't provide much synergy at all. On top of that, they have a lot of and which may be difficult to pull of with your land base, especially during early game. Concealed Courtyard is a good land to have in here, and it's Modern-legal.
Everything above considered, here are some Knights that may work well in this deck. Blood-Cursed Knight could be useful here, considering how many enchantments you have in the deck. Fiendslayer Paladin is quite good. Lone Rider Flip would proc off of Lifelink rather easily. Stillmoon Cavalier is versatile and functions similarly to Stromgald Crusader.
I should mention that Sorin, Grim Nemesis's Ultimate ability creates the tokens you want.
You could also consider giving your other Knights Lifelink, via Enchantments like Gift of Orzhova or Whip of Erebos. This deck has little ways of generating 1/1 Vampire Knight other than Call the Bloodline and even with that you will have to dump a LOT of cards into your graveyard, which with this deck has no benefit whatsoever, just to get a sufficient amount of tokens (and I need not remind you that you have no means of using any of the cards you will have discarded). You may even be better off not working with tokens and instead focus on your creature base.
Hope this helps!

I appreciate the suggestion! I've actually tried out Gift of Orzhova in a Modern version, and it's quite underwhelming. Almost all (if not all) of the creatures already practically have either flying or lifelink, so to give it the other one and +1/+1 for 3 mana is not great value. Compare this to Edge of the Divinity; that aura is such great value for one mana that it is worth the risk of getting two-for-oned with creature removal.
