Plenty of cards I love that aren't in these sets and so aren't included.

Thanks for the comments guys, awesome to see that people actually comment on a deck on this site.
The deck got changed to legacy, that was a mistake from my side.
Mortuary Mire Seems quite nice and inexpensive, gotta add 4 of those :)
So what do you guys think of the small zombie theme? I like the idea that they buff each other, but I'm in doubt if it would be better to remove those zombies and add 4 Tidehollow Strix and 4 Vampire Nighthawk, to get some more death touch and lifelink? The overall goal of the deck is to sit a bit back and handle early tough creatures with Fog Bank and threaten their creatures with death touch and then later use Control Magic to take their really strong overpowered creatures. We normally play casual games 4+ guys and their is often 1 angel deck and 1 green aggro deck.

These are the cards that I have found not very helpful, in testing:
Plague Belcher - if it comes in when there are no other Creatures on the field, which happens a lot, it is not very useful
Battle at the Bridge - there aren't enough Artifacts to make this worthwhile and it is a dead early draw
Renegade Map - this helps you colour fix, but you have no need of that in this deck
More Zombies in the 2 drop spot is what this deck desperately needs.

My first thought is that I'd drop all the lands that ETB tapped for no benefit. Temple of Malice, Bojuka Bog, Canyon Slough get a pass. Along with cards like Rocky Tar Pit and even Terramorphic Expanse/Evolving Wilds. When you're a mana hungry control deck, you can't afford to take turns off because your lands aren't untapped.
Illusionist's Bracers is totally worth taking a look at. You have several powerful vampires that would only be better with a double use of their abilities. Not to mention your commander. Always worth it.
Patriarch's Bidding might be worth looking at if you're not in a tribal heavy meta.
How about cards like Call the Bloodline and Stensia Masquerade to get some more utility for your vampires. Also, with Call, you can slowly stockpile your yard to get a huge swath of creatures with a mass rez, while defending yourself. Would also benefit to look at Skullclamp if you decide to go that route.
Enchantments will wreck you. Chaos Warp might be worth it to get past pesky ones that are locking you down. Red will give you all the artifact destruction you need, and I love Rakdos Charm for this and other flexibility.
Aggravated Assault seems weird in a more control oriented deck. It might be best to figure out if you want to go all in on attacking or build your vampires up over attrition...which reminds me Attrition, Grave Pact/Dictate of Erebos are super strong. Vampiric Rites can also help trigger the Pact/Dictate and get you some cards off your vampires/tokens.
Your deck is overwhelmingly black, so you can't go wrong with Jet Medallion, Ascendant Evincar or other cards that focus on the benefit to playing a single color. Like running Hero's Downfall over Dreadbore instant speed is going to be so much better, unless you decide to run Vedalken Orrery.
Okay, that's a lot of stuff, so I'll cap it off there. One last thing though, and this is kind of pricey so I get why this might not be in your deck: Volrath's Stronghold. It works great with Vampire Nocturnus by being able to chunk a dead vamp on top to get the boost when you don't have it naturally. Mortuary Mire can work in a pinch, but you only get one shot at it.

Just wanted to add that some of the Zendikar lands are great in certain builds.
