Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet
Legendary Creature — Vampire Warrior
3B, Tap: Destroy target creature. If that creature is put into a graveyard this way, put a black Vampire creature token onto the battlefield. Its power is equal to that creature's power and its toughness is equal to that creature's toughness.

Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet Discussion

FiendishElf, I really love Cabal Coffers as a card, and run it in all my mono black decks for obvious reasons. However, once you introduce a second or third color into a deck, the amount of basic swamps in your deck drops from 20ish to 1-5. Unless you have a consistent way to get Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and the coffers at once, the chances of you actually getting value from it is slim to none. If you like mono black vamp generals, such as Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Anowon, the Ruin Sage, or either Drana, then I would heavily recommend it. Some casual, budget lists of Olivia Voldaren that have a lot of basic swamps can run it, but for the most part I would advise against it. Just run Urborg so you can get all the black mana you need, or even a Chromatic Lantern

Eater of the Dead - "free" untap + graveyard hate
Fatestitcher - tap down / untap
Geth, Lord of the Vault - reanimation
Hoard-Smelter Dragon - artifact destruction
Jace's Archivist - windfall
Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet - creature destruction + token
Mean suggestions that will make you lose friends

Looks good. Some suggestions for cuts: Warmth is kind of weak and can be replaced with Elenda, the Dusk Rose (when you get her), Dega Sanctuary can be replaced with Vampire Nocturnus, Arguel's Blood Fast can be replaced with Greed or even Erebos, God of the Dead. Or take the Necropotence from Rakdos and put it in here, it's better here anyways. You could replace In Garruk's Wake with Dusk, it does double duty here, giving you back a bunch of your creatures when you flash it back. If you don't like Dusk, then Kindred Dominance would work in the overcosted wipe slot too.
As for creatures, Annoited Deacon should probably come out, as well as Exulted Skymarcher, Paladin of the Bloodstained, Sadistic Skymarcher and Skymarcher Aspirant. Options to go in include Stromkirk Condemned, Bishop of Binding, Bloodline Keeper Flip, Dusk Legion Zealot, Twilight Prophet, Indulgent Aristocrat, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet, Mephidross Vampire, Necropolis Regent, Patron of the Vein, Shauku, Endbringer (less important than maybe other creatures), Soul Collector for giggles, Thief of Blood, Viscera Seer, Vampire Hexmage or Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter.

Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter seems like he would synergize well with Elenda.

If you really want this to be competitive in Modern, there's going to be quite a few changes, I think.
Firstly, the removal. Fatal Push is the best removal in Modern currently. You should play 4 before things like Hero's Downfall (seems like a sideboard card at best) and Go for the Throat (Affinity is a popular deck).
Thirdly, the creatures. Guul Draz Assassin is just not that good. It takes a giant amount of resources to utilize his abilities; and if you just need someone to trigger Mavren Fein's ability, maybe consider Bloodghast. 3 Gifted Aetherborn is perfectly fine; 3 Bloodline Keeper Flip might be a bit greedy and 3 Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet is never going to work (a 7-drop with 20 lands and no ramp!).
Fourthly, the planeswalkers. Sorin, Solemn Visitor is perfect for the deck but Sorin, Grim Nemesis is a tougher call because of its CMC and the number of lands you play. Maybe consider Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or more copies of Solemn Visitor?
Lastly, the lands. It's probably a budget reason why there aren't Marsh Flats and Godless Shrine in the deck, but there are ways to work around that. More importantly, 20 lands seems too few for what is essentially a mid-to-late game deck. Even typical BW Tokens, which has a much lower curve than this deck, runs 23-24 lands.
My personal opinions.

I would say that since you're going for spot removal, Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet is your best option. He allows you to keep up with your killing spree and strengthens your boardstate at the same time.
Nothing quite like a 1-2 punch, especially in Black.
