Olivia, Mobilized for War
Legendary Creature — Vampire Knight
Whenever another creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may discard a card. If you do, put a +1/+1 counter on that creature, it gains haste until end of turn, and it becomes a Vampire in addition to its other types.

Olivia, Mobilized for War Discussion

Knight of the White Orchid is neat.
There is a vampires theme option for this kind of list- Bloodcrazed Paladin , Forerunner of the Legion , Legion Lieutenant , Olivia, Mobilized for War , Paladin of Atonement etc. This is neat in that it lets you run a lot of lord effects, even if there is a little awkwardness in the non-vampire slots.

Rakish Heir , Vampire Nighthawk , Indulgent Aristocrat , Sanctum Seeker and Stromkirk Noble are all budget cards that would slot well into this deck. If you're willing to spend a bit more, Gifted Aetherborn , Drana, Liberator of Malakir and Knight of the Ebon Legion would be good additions. I'd also move Olivia, Mobilized for War into the main in place of Vampire Warlord or Markov Patrician
Not really sure what purpose Bubbling Cauldron serves here. Clear a Path seems a strange choice to me as well. Terminate would provide a much broader scope of removal for just more and be instant speed too.

I'd cut 1 of the boardwipes and Sorin. I really don't like Always Watching either. other than you really need to cut from mostly artifacts I'd say. 30 is too much. I would focus on quality over quantity on the equipment, especially with Gwen's ability. I have some adds even though you need cuts. Hero of Bladehold Mirran Crusader and Knight of the White Orchid seem like the three biggest Knight's you are missing. Aryel, Knight of Windgrace and Olivia, Mobilized for War also seems better than a lot of the knights you have. I also run Night's Whisper and Read the Bones as a staple in black, especially without green

SirChris39 i don't like at all Olivia, Mobilized for War even if Olivia Voldaren is one of my favorite cards in the game, there's no point to make creatures hasty and +1/+1 if the goal of the deck is wordlgorger combo or dualcaster+twinflame combo, Ad Nauseam even if it is indeed one of the best cards in cEDH, i can't recommend it in a deck with so high cmc cost due to the madness cards we use to cycle then deck, it can turn very bad for us in terms of damange taken. Insidious Dreams that's a great card i will consider to add to my mainboard since it can be another Doomsday for just 1 more mana and some cards in hand, all without the doomsday backdraw of exiling every other card from both library and graeyard. The manabase isn't great since the deck aim is to be budget you haven't access to cards like Ancient Tomb and Badland but for sure i will cut 4 mountains and add 4 swamps since you need more black than red. not having access to Mana Crypt is the worst part of playing in budget, since you don't run solid mana acceleratos, you can't get Anje Falkenrath on turn 2 and that's really bad; some budget accelerators for turn 2 anje could be Blood Pet , Skirk Prospector , Jeweled Amulet , Simian Spirit Guide , Dark Ritual . Sadly, if you want to play cEDH on budget, you have to be prepared to hard loses since things like the diamond cycle and Everflowing Chalice are just too slow for the format. The main problem with a deck like anje madness combo is actually his game plan: you can't decide to play the worldgorger dragon combo in a casual way because it is just too good so you have to play it in a competitive way in order to match your opponet's power level because if you bring a combo deck like this against a casual group hug Phelddagrif player, the gameplay would be like a solitary of yourself doing your things with the opponent trying to interact with you in a suboptimal way and that's just not fun, either way, you can't sit at a cEDH table with a deck that is way too slow for the format because you will end up to be eaten by flash+hulk, isocron shepter+drammatic reversal, ad nauseam storm, teferi+chain veil. The solutions to this problem are actually 3 (if i don't forget others but idk): use proxy cards if you don't play sancioned events and if your playgroup allow them, invest some money buying cards and bringing your deck to the required power level or you can remove all the combos and play the deck just like a madness deck at a casual EDH table; i personally don't like this last option but can turn to be a fun archetype to build and play since you can use really strong and fun cards like Bone Miser , Waste Not with all the discard hatebears, Liliana Vess , Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and his son K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth or cards like Praetor's Grasp , Sheoldred, Whispering One and Gonti, Lord of Luxury for some "heavy black deck flavor" or you can even turn it to a full vampire madness tribal with Falkenrath Gorger ! If you want to stick to the good old one Worldgorger Dragon combo, pls don't do it in casual edh but try to tweak at best for cedh instead otherwise you will ruin some random player day without having fun at all, i can say that 100% . Hope i helped you is some way and happy brewing :D

Olivia, Mobilized for War could too.
Varina, Lich Queen seems like an obvious option.

Im thinking of adding new chainer (which I see you already have) and also Olivia, Mobilized for War to have more ways to give Greven Hasts but also can be immediately saced to draw 3, or they can be kept around for utility.
