so. aside from some upgrades like;
I'm looking at a few different options for my LD package;
I'd like to know what you think, perhaps you've some choice cards I've missed

I like many of your cards and others, not so much. Ill start with the good part.
Shivan Harvest: Awesome, gonna have to include that in my own deck. I keep forgetting this card exists.
Mardu Ascendancy: Yes and no. The first part of the enchantment is decent for an aggro deck, but the second part will be mostly useless. Your biggest enemy will be wraths, not combat. If you're running Edgar, you will probably have the most creatures.
Obzedat's Aid: A great card.
Lapse of Certainty: It always helps to be a little tricky. A spell like this will never go unused if you draw it during a game.
Bitterblossom: An excellent card for Edgar. I'd run it myself if I had one.
Now for the bad:
Quag Vampires: I would swap those guys with a
Shadow Alley Denizen, who gives more utility.
Vedalken Orrery: Why? You'll not generate a large amount of mana with this deck and your sorcery count is also low. Not worth the slot in this deck.
Ghostly Prison: You're gonna have a buttload of creatures, so it's just better to block with those, instead of a 3 cmc enchantment that you could replace with Vindicate, Shared Animosity, or a Boros Charm to protect yourself from wraths, which will make you cry. Also, you could fetch that last card with your sunforger, so there's that.No Stromkirk Captain? You just HAVE to run this guy, no way around that.
Ranger of Eos: Your one drops are not that impactful to warrant him being here.
Lastly, as suggestion, I would run Phyrexian Reclamation. You could return a vampire to your hand, cast it again, and activate Edgar's eminence in a recurring fashion.
Hope this helped!

Thx for comments, suggestion and upvote!
Primer - the idea of creating a more detailed description of the interactions and gameplay - Primer, has long been wandering in my head. Since English is not my native language it will require me a lot of free time which I do not have at that moment. Work and family on the first place, MTG and other my hobby on second. But someday in the not too distant future, I will find time to create it.
- Squee, Goblin Nabob - sure this one have potential but mostly it one creature drop for it stack badly with Eidolon of the Great Revel, Pyrostatic Pillar and Spellshock. Still if I decide to fit it in, what should I cut for it?
Thx again for all your suggestions!
Ankh of Mishra - was in deck on early stages but was cut. Zo-Zu the Punisher much better imho. 1st - devotion. 2nd - he is goblin. 3rd - being a creature is not a minus it is a plus, even with all burn board wipes.

AlmightyTentacle, do you think there is room in this deck for Wasteland and/or Strip Mine? You have Shivan Harvest which is very strong with your goblin tokens but these cards would make the non-basic destruction more consistent in case you don't draw the harvest. If you had Strip Mine, Wasteland, Shivan Harvest, as well as a Burning Wished Ruination you'd have a package of some sort.

Or maybe maybe Shivan Harvest, Because of the repeatable effect and the tokens from Krenko

this is my try about the deckbuilding.
I removed more things with little impact.sanguine bond + exquisite blood combo is not so appealing for it'S CMC and alone. Call the bloodline is also no nice tech either.. (sadly, love both artworks.)bloodtribute is exactly the same (artwork also :P)Olivia, Mobilized for War has no support for the effectvampire nocturnus has activation problems
Cathars' Crusade (can be insane)
Necropotence (why not )
Lightning Greaves for shroud and other strong vamps
Animate Dead, cause its good
change the 3cmc manarocks with 2cmc to curve out better
the 2 Ixalan vamp spoilers are realy nice so far. are the route i want to go. Some aristocrat way. Just doing aggro stuff might be a bit unexciting

To be honest recently I dont have quite much time to play. Work and familly eat all my free time.
But still I manage to play a bit and I was quite happy how deck is playing :-)
Flamekin Village - Totally agree with you I too had thought about replacing this card.
Hanweir Battlements - I will keep it for now (it doesnt enter tapped) but maybe throw it out in the future.
Boseiju, Who Shelters All - I will consider about adding it in.
Cavern of Souls - lets say its quite expensive card to give my commander chance not to be contered.
Command Beacon - was in maybeboard, but I dont want to overload my deck with coloress, nonbasic lands.
Druidic Satchel - is too slow imho.
Coercive Portal - in 1 vs 1 games maybe.
So for now I dont quite see any nice replacement for Howling Mine. I supose we just have to wait for the MTG gods give us something more appropriate in the foreseeable future, or just cut it for something completely different.
Sure I will be happy to play mate :-) just need to finde time. Btw what time difference we have now?
