Like...what the fuck do you even do against a turn 3 (turn 2 off a mana dork) Blood Baron of Vizkopa in Modern?

The list is still missing Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood , by the way.

I made a deck with a similar principle, as Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood also profits when creatures are hit, although daamge is of course different from draining. You might find some suggestions in there. See Here
Also, Blowfly infestation does nothing with massacre girl, as she doesn't put -1/-1 counters on creatures, she only gives them -1/-1 temporarily.

Raise Dead isn't a bad graveyard retrieval card, but there isn't much that's better in Standard right now; options would be Recover , Soul Salvage , and FinD. Cast Down hits non-legendary creatures, and Price of Fame hits legendary creatures for cheaper than non-legendary creatures, so they complement each other nicely. If you're willing to ramp your opponent and splash green, you can pick up Assassin's Trophy , although probably not on a budget. Moment of Craving is not a bad card; it's one of the few things that get rid of Adanto Vanguard cheaply (since a creature with zero or less toughness is removed from the battlefield even if it's indestructible). You might consider replacing some or all copies of it with Vicious Offering if you're willing to sacrifice creatures sometimes, or with Dead Weight for a persistent effect without the life gain. A strictly more powerful but also more expensive option is Vraska's Contempt . None of those cards synergize especially well with Sengir Vampire because Sengir Vampire is a 4/4, which means that most of the time it will either kill a creature by itself or die to it, rendering the later death of the creature meaningless since you no longer control Sengir Vampire. If you're looking for that type of synergy I recommend Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood , although he's very expensive mana-wise for a Standard deck (which is probably not horrible in casual play but might bite you in the butt at a tournament when he gets killed with Price of Fame or similar after sideboarding). As an additional recommendation that's kind of like Moment of Craving thematically, you might consider Arterial Flow (both are useful in your deck but serve different roles); there's also Moment of Triumph as another vampire-themed combat trick. If you like all these vampire-themed cards for flavor reasons, search through the Ixalan and Rivals of Ixalan sets; they were tribal sets with Merfolk, Pirates, Vampires, and Dinosaurs as the tribes, so probably about 20% of the cards are vampire-themed in those two sets.

berryjon: I miss Volvers too. And that brings up probably my biggest frustration with their design choices in recent years. There are actually so many ways for them to make cards interesting and decision oriented, and they've explored design space in doing so, they just never carry it forward. I want to see more things like hybrid mana costs, kickers that cost a different color, things of that nature.
Standard currently has Zero (0) hybrid mana symbols in it total (this will change with the upcoming set release), not just in mana costs, but in rules text as well. And it has a whopping three cards that have mana of a different color in their ability costs, Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Pride Sovereign. All at rare.
Honestly, the way they've been handling design as of late feels genuinely insulting. I still haven't gotten over their bullshit "Regeneration is too confusing" claim. Magic was better than other TCGs specifically for its depth and complexity, and now WotC is telling us that we can't handle depth.

All things I am going to suggest are under $2 cards. If your looking for something in a higher budget let me know.
Cards to get rid of:
Ajani's Pridemate and Child of Night They seem like they would work but they do not do enough
Arena Rector No really good planeswalker to find.
Bloodcrazed Hoplite, Knight of Malice, Oketra's Avenger, Typhoid Rats, Skittering Heartstopper, and Fate Unraveler Don't see how they fit in at all
Danitha Capashen, Paragon No Equipement but a decent creature.
Harvestguard Alseids Not running enough enchantments
Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood Not in your commander colors (has red)
Replace all of these creatures with creatures that do 1 of 4 things:
Produce a creature token
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet from your side board
Gain you life
Pontiff of Blight, Syndic of Tithes, Tithe Drinker, Treasury Thrull, Soul Warden, Soul's Attendant, Sunscorch Regent, Suture Priest are all good examples. In multiplayer EDH extort good.
Burnished Hart. Crypt Ghast He is like $3.50 but he is really good in this deck Draw a card
Bloodgift Demon and Mentor of the Meek are good examples.
You should have all your instants and sorceries do some kind of board wipe or removal. The ones that are a one shot gain life just aren't good.
Your enchantments are good.

In order to make this deck EDH-legal you should still remove 3 cards to make your total 100; not sure if you had noticed :) The mana-balance of this deck is a little off. What I mean by that, is that you're using a lot of expensive-to-cast creatures but virtually no ramping/mana rocks. This means that when you draw your opening hand in a game, chances are relatively high you will not be able to perform any (useful) actions during the first few turns. An additional problem is that the deck contains very little opportunity for you to draw more cards or to search for cards you need.
I would recommend adding some mana rocks like Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Indulgence, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Gilded Lotus, Rakdos Cluestone, Rakdos Keyrune and/or Worn Powerstone. Also, Dark Ritual is a very good accelerator for black.
In order to make room for (some of) these cards, I would definitely recommend removing expensive stuff that isn't doing that much for you like Bloodhall Priest, Kazarov, Sengir Pureblood, Markov Dreadknight, Skeletal Vampire and Vein Drinker.
Hope any of this helps. Regards,
