Hello friends. Things have improved and I'm back into playing. I am attempting to finish my Superfriends EDH deck (and one other project), as well as helping someone make her new EDH deck.
I have started updating My Binder, will continue to add more though.
Here is a list of what I need most for Superfriends:
Garruk, Apex Predator
Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury
Gideon, Ally of Zendikar or Gideon, Champion of Justice Either would do, just need one though
Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded (AVR preferred but will take either)
Venser, the Sojourner (SOM Preferred, likely will take either)
Ramos, Dragon Engine
Necropotence (I really only want deckmasters, but might accept Ice Age)
Full Art Foils Island, Mountain, Swamp, Forest (one of each from Amonkhet)
Fetches/Shocks (Including foils/expeditions)
For other projects (Mainly Foil Vampires, and non foils of the more expensive one):
Edgar Markov (Will over-value)
Mathas, Fiend Seeker
Licia, Sanguine Tribune
Sanctum Seeker (would accept not foil)
The other Vamp lords and big cards are still needed so just ask.
Looking for other Vamp synergies as well so feel free to recommend and offer.

I like the changes! I'm still curious, though, why Bishop of the Bloodstained over Sanctum Seeker? I don't want to say it's "strictly better," but with the exception of very rare corner cases, it's strictly better. And why 3x Oketra (good addition, btw, didn't even think of that one), but only 2x Mavren? You can suicide an extra Mavren into a messy board state and get value, but multiple Oketras really don't stack well...

You drain each opponent for three life! Notice the difference in wording between Sanctum Seeker and Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle - "Whenever a Vampire you control attacks, ..." vs. "Whenever one or more (nontoken) Vampires you control attack, ...". Sanctum Seeker drains your opponents for one life per vampire attacking, whereas Mavren Fein only makes one token, no matter how many vampires are attacking.

Sanctum Seeker and two other vampires are attacking. Do I get one life or three?

I would cut the Inspiring Clerics for more lands. I would also cut the Vanquisher's Banner and Heartless Pillage to go up to 3x Bloodcrazed Paladins and 4 of both Sanctum Seeker and Vicious Conquistador

My zeal lead me to make an error. Indulgent Aristocrat should not be listed as it is one of the best one drops we play.
I count 37 other black cards in your deck besides Vampire Nocturnus. Has he been consistent enough for the mana cost?
I am playing New Blood and Captivating Vampire. Has Olivia Voldaren's theft effect been worth the heavy mana investment? If not, she has to be cut as there are too many good four mana creatures competing for that spot. Purphoros, God of the Forge is one along with Sanctum Seeker from Ixalan.
I agree with your cut of Olivia, Mobilized for War and Kalastria Highborn. Tithe Drinker seems lackluster. Mirri the Cursed, Blood Baron of Vizkopa and Drana's Emissary seem too expensive. The worst offender of this group seems to be Blood Baron of Vizkopa as he is expensive and conditional.
I have questioned 13 cards of which two you are cutting two and one, Indulgent Aristocrat, should not have been included. If you could only keep three of the remaining 10 cards what would they be?
You did not mention Sanctum Seeker as one of the new cards you wanted to test. It is the best vampire for your build from the new set.
I am playing Exquisite Blood and am glad you are putting it into the deck. I have been debating whether to pull it out of the deck. Exquisite Blood along with Cliffhaven Vampire form a infinite combo once one of our opponents take damage. I never tutor for it and was thinking of cutting one or both. Did you intentionally leave out combos?

Feast of Blood needs 2 vamps in play to kill 1 card. Even if you have 2 low costed vamps, that's turn 3 earliest if they both survive. With Bolt, Path and Push being so omnipresent in Modern, Feast is seriously unreliable, especially since it's a sorcery and not an instant.
Sorin really isn't played at all in this format, unlike EDH where he was almost banned at one point. He was really good in original Zendikar standard, and was a one-of in the deck that won 1st place world that year (UB control, though vamps made top 8). In Modern he's too much mana to cast in midrange, he's the wrong color for ramp aggro which is usually GR, he doesn't fit into Tron unlike Karn or Ugin and control runs 3-4 Bob (Dark Confidant). If you want an amazing planeswalker, though she's expensive and more midrange-y anyway, one of the best cards in the format is Liliana of the Veil or not far behind, Liliana, the Last Hope. If You wanted a budget alternative that's still admittedly a little slow, there's Ob Nixilis Reignited, but 5 mana in vamps is really pushing it unless the card is seriously gamebreaking like Voldaren Pariah or back in the day Malakir Bloodwitch.
By the way I just realized the new set coming out has Vicious Conquistador who is literally a better Pulse Tracker.
My recommendations for an aggressive monoblack list in terms of creatures is something like: 4 Vampire Lacerator, 4 Vicious Conquistador, 2 Viscera Seer, 4 Bloodghast, 4 Gifted Aetherborn who I've dubbed Vampire Nightpenguin, 4 Gatekeeper of Malakir, 2 Captivating Vampire, 4 Vampire Nocturnus, 1 Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, 1 Sanctum Seeker, 1 Asylum Visitor. If space is too tight cut the captivatings and visitor and lower Aetherborn to 3. This is similar to my first build, and has a pretty low curve lending way to speed and damage. Seers are here to ensure consistency for Nocturnus and get you the topdeck you need in an emergency as they can sac as they block.
Fetch lands do a lot actually. A land you pull from your deck is a land you're not topdecking at a critical moment when you really don't want one. They also let you double dip on Bloodghast and provide incentive not to chump block him. They also let you shuffle your deck for Nocturnus if you topdeck a land, which are cololess due to no mana cost.
