Scapegoat ! You will love this Card the first time you can cast it when a sweeper is on the stack , only 1 white and sac a token and refill your hand with the vamps from the board to dodge the sweeper. This card gets even better when you have Impact Tremors and/or Purphoros, God of the Forge out !

Garruk's Uprising is a good draw source when you populate 5/5 dragon tokens.
Brawn is a good creature to sacrifice early. It is more annoying for your opponents to deal with. The effect works from the graveyard, and draws out graveyard removal.

Since you're looking for feedback:
More lands 33 lands is not enough. On a quick count there's 6 other sources of "ramp" (counting the horn and the altar) which is also on the lower side.
I think 38 lands and 8+ ramp spells is pretty default for a deck with a normal curve. Since vamps are somewhat cheapish, you could cut some lands and maybe go down to 36, but 33 is just way off.
I don't necessarily advocate using deck templates (x lands, x removal, x wincons, x draw, etc), since every deck has different needs, but they're a good baseline and let's just say you need a damn good reason to diverge by so much (IMO, ofc). Good resources on this topic are easy to find. Command Zone and others have done a number of videos on the topic.
Cuts As for some cuts (which is always somehow harder than suggestions, so i'll leave that to others here):
Anointed Procession is not good enough in your deck. Making more 1/1s is not impressive or worth 4 mana and a turn
Mana Echoes doesn't really seem very good here either but i'll admit i've never touched the card so that's just me theorizing
I'm not sure Athreos, God of Passage is good enough, not being a vampire and not being a creature. It may be interesting for diplomacy though.
I just noticed i basically mostly agree with most of the things Nightblad3 said but hope this helps

Reconnaissance - Worth its weight in gold here.
Purphoros, God of the Forge - Great finisher without relying on combat.
Scapegoat - Anti wrath tech that keeps you out of topdeck mode and it doubles as a finisher with Purph.
Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's not as low to the ground as yours but is far more resilient. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I'm guessing you've already looked at my deck (or at least advice I've posted elsewhere) but feel free to take a gander if you haven't. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I have a few suggestions for you ranging from budget friendly to Purphoros, God of the Forge.
Board Protection: Boros Charm and Scapegoat but drop Unbreakable Formation. Scapegoat helps against hard to dodge wraths like tuck, -X-X, exile, sac, etc. It also doubles as a finisher with Purphoros out.
Finishers: Shared Animosity, Mirror Entity, Cover of Darkness, and Reconnaissance (2nd post below entirely for this card). Drop Door of Destinies, it does nothing for your current board and costs a ton of mana for an aggro deck.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's also over 170 comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Not too shabby but I do have a few suggestions. I'll try to break it down by category.
Let me know if you're picking up what I'm putting down, I can help suggest a few cuts beyond Door of Destinies. Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Nice deck. I do have a few suggestions for you and I'll try to break it down by category.
Reconnaissance - 2nd post below dedicated entirely to this card.
Scapegoat - It's mainly anti wrath tech that helps against hard to dodge wraths like tuck, exile, -X-X, sacrifice, etc. but it also doubles as a non combat finisher with Purphoros out.
Necropotence - Without this card (and lots of fetchlands and Enlightened/Vampiric Tutors imo) Vampire Nocturnus isn't very reliable in 3 colors.
Austere Command - Nice and versatile like Merciless Eviction. I run both.
