First off, welcome to the world of EDH! I think you'll find it's definitely one of the most fun formats you'll experience. As someone who has played tribal vampires before, I think I can offer you some suggestions based on my experience. Now I'm not sure what you're budget is for cards so feel free to ignore any suggestions that are out of your budget range.
Vampires are tricky because they don't have as much tribal support as say Goblins, Elves, or even Zombies so you really want the best they have to offer. I think that 44 creatures is a bit too high, even for a tribal deck, so I would cut and refine some of your weaker vampires.
These are a few ideas of some very powerful vampires that could easily be swapped in for some of the less optimal brood.
As with any EDH deck, your mana base is going to always be tweaked and upgraded to make your plays faster and more reliable. Now this is something you can do over time and as budget allows but some major lands to consider are:
Now the latter 3 lands are included for explosive ramping and because I've found most tribal vampire decks are more black than red. Another thing to keep in mind is that generally, you don't want less than 36 lands in your deck unless you have a lot of mana rocks to support less. Olivia is a very mana hungry commander so I would suggest about 38 lands.
Along similar lines, I would include the following mana rocks to further ramp/filter your mana:
While not traditional "ramp", Urza's Incubator can be very helpful in this deck since vampires tend to be a bit higher mana costed.
You'll want to include a few cards to help you draw more cards just to get more power from the deck. There's a lot of options out there but one card I strongly suggest is Phyrexian Arena.
The same goes for your removal. A little spot removal and a few board wipes should have you covered.
I hope these ideas help! Best of luck to you with your deck!

I know it's a big change but Silas Renn, Seeker Adept would pair beautifully with Reyhan. Adding a blue partner would open many other card options like Vorel of the Hull Clade and Master Biomancer. Oh and maybe Necropolis Regent too.

Look at Obelisk of Urd and Mutavault to go with your tribal. Also, Asylum Visitor, Bloodlord of Vaasgoth, Indulgent Aristocrat, Kalastria Highborn, Malakir Bloodwitch, Necropolis Regent, Stromkirk Condemned, Vampire Cutthroat, Erebos, God of the Dead.

I like it. Have you considered Drana, Liberator of Malakir or Necropolis Regent to produce more counters? (Drana will most likely drop in price once she rotates out of standard in late April.) You've already got about every other good counter builder I can think of in abzan that stays in the budget realm. But overall, a very nice build here.

To help Yahenni grow bigger, I would add Necropolis Regent to double his power every hit. It also pumps thing like Hangarback walker before you sac them for more creatures.

This hurts my eyes....I'm not a competitive player by any means, but this is soooo all over the place I think most wins/interactions would be pure luck.
I have to give you major props for putting these to Partners together... they lack synergy so much, that's why there's no frame of reference. On the other hand if you force them to have synergy you could have a very unique and fun deck on your hands. I think the only way to do this is with (mostly) artifact creatures that etb with/benefit from +1/+1 counters. Even going this route feels weird without access to blue.
Anyways...suggestions for the card pool....
Arcbound Crusher, Arcbound Reclaimer, Arcbound Stinger, Etched Oracle, Flowstone Sculpture, Lunar Avenger, Mindless Automaton, Spincrusher, Suncrusher, Triskelion, Mephidross Vampire, Necropolis Regent, Dark Impostor, Death's Presence (stacks with Reyhan), Then for any other idea's I'd start looking at the 3 billion Atraxa Decklists that have popped up this month for stuff like Contagion Engine, Sunscorch Regent or Renegade Krasis or whatever.
Anyways +1 Upvote for bravery on mixing these Partners
