Sorin, Grim Nemesis Discussion

Looks like your land-base could use more W sources and fewer B sources.
I think you can go down to 36 or 34 lands, bring in some utility lands (like High Market), fetches, shocks, and other kinds of dual lands and still be okay.
With the spaces you have left, think of other utility creatures, perhaps. Razaketh, the Foulblooded, for example, would make good use of your extra life as a tutor. Ghost Council of Orzhova and Obzedat, Ghost Council come to mind, as well.
Greed would be a good card-draw enchantment given your life-gain.
Bring some mana rocks into your artifact pool (like Orzhov Signet), a few board wipes into your sorceries, some spot removal (especially exile effects) into your instants, and maybe a synergistic planeswalker or two, like Elspeth Tirel or Sorin, Grim Nemesis.

I love this combination of commanders. Nice list!
Greed might be good for card draw since you gain so much life, as well.

Would your playgroup be okay withy Exquisite Blood in the deck, as well?

If you really want this to be competitive in Modern, there's going to be quite a few changes, I think.
Firstly, the removal. Fatal Push is the best removal in Modern currently. You should play 4 before things like Hero's Downfall (seems like a sideboard card at best) and Go for the Throat (Affinity is a popular deck).
Thirdly, the creatures. Guul Draz Assassin is just not that good. It takes a giant amount of resources to utilize his abilities; and if you just need someone to trigger Mavren Fein's ability, maybe consider Bloodghast. 3 Gifted Aetherborn is perfectly fine; 3 Bloodline Keeper Flip might be a bit greedy and 3 Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet is never going to work (a 7-drop with 20 lands and no ramp!).
Fourthly, the planeswalkers. Sorin, Solemn Visitor is perfect for the deck but Sorin, Grim Nemesis is a tougher call because of its CMC and the number of lands you play. Maybe consider Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or more copies of Solemn Visitor?
Lastly, the lands. It's probably a budget reason why there aren't Marsh Flats and Godless Shrine in the deck, but there are ways to work around that. More importantly, 20 lands seems too few for what is essentially a mid-to-late game deck. Even typical BW Tokens, which has a much lower curve than this deck, runs 23-24 lands.
My personal opinions.

This commander looks great.
I also wonder about more token producers to work with your Anointed Procession. Cards like Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Carrion, Dark Salvation, Empty the Pits, Liliana, the Last Hope, Plague of Vermin, Secure the Wastes, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, might help here.
Have fun playing!

Zulaport Cutthroat complements Blood Artist.
Greed is a good source of card draw in a life-gain deck.
A lot of your creatures are too big for Sun Titan; maybe something like a Serra Ascendant instead for more life-gain?
You may also want more token generators to make Anointed Procession really pay off in a big way. Cards like Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Carrion, Dark Salvation, Empty the Pits, Liliana, the Last Hope, Plague of Vermin, Secure the Wastes, and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, might help here.

If you are looking for another planeswalker, there is also Sorin, Grim Nemesis
Overall, this seems like a really interesting deck.

Okie dokie! So, heres What Id recommend:
Mana. Your land base is fine, though 38 is a little much for a creature heavy deck, since you want cheap and fast dudes. Id say cut one of each basic land, Horn of Greed, and Thaumatic Compass Flipfor the three signets in these colors, Sol Ring and Hedron Archive. Dont forget sad robot, Solemn Simulacrum!
Board wipes! Instead of Release the Gremlins, Vandalblast is a bunch better. You dont have to spend as much for basically the same effect, minus the tokens. Wrath of God can replace Death Grasp, and Wear / Tear is better than Hide/Seek.Mortify And Boros Charm would also work great. Finally, instead of Profound Journey, Living Death is great - a wipe + instant advantage if a lot of your cards are in the grave.
Tutors and planeswalkers!Instead of Elspeth Tirel, Elspeth, Sun's Champion makes tokens AND can wrath, plus a buff as an ultimate. Always awesome. Sorin, Grim Nemesis is a bit costly, but can also work as a Dark confidant, for opponents LP instead. You DO need more tutors, as I noticed. Increasing Ambition is a pet card of mine, and Diabolic Tutor is a classic. Even Faithless Looting can give you some cheap card advantage early on. What you could replace for those is up to you, though, if anything.
Combos and jank creatures!One card you should throw in is Ashnod's Altar - getting rid of cheap tokens for mana ad damage is one thing, but if you add a can like Banisher Priest and sacrifice it upon entering, the thing you Target will be permanently exiled. Alesha, Who Smiles at Death would be another cool addition for graveyard shenanigans, and by default, her pal Master of Cruelties would come out to play. Then theres the big girls: Aurelia, the Warleader and Gisela, Blade of Goldnight are just awesome. Hero of Bladehold and Hero of Oxid Ridge are great because of their attacking abilities, and Iroas, God of Victory always ensures protection. While were on gods, Purphoros, God of the Forge + a frequently forgotten card, Assemble the Legion, lets you slowly gain an advantage. Or, just go with Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker + Zealous Conscriptsfor a short and sweet win. Just in case, theres always Panharmonicon for all your jank ETB needs.
Phew...I THINK thats everything off the top of my head! Lol
