You don't have a lot of consistency to be honest. You might want more duplicates of the same card and not so many one-ofs. I wouldn't play a card really unless I had at least two or three of them. Mana curve is another thing to consider all though yours isn't that bad. And I would assume you wouldn't want to make the deck too strong and over priced :P Maybe 4 Vampire Nighthawk. More Anguished Unmaking, more Dark Ritual, more Blood Baron of Vizkopa. could focus on devotion with 4x Gray Merchant of Asphodel Gift of Orzhova. I dont think you need life link enchantments, should just use life link creatures. Anyway some cool and cheap cards to also consider maybe Obzedat, Ghost Council Unmake Oblivion Ring Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Debt to the Deathless Crypt Ghast Victim of Night Murder Tribute to Hunger Mortify

It does however make me want to build an Abzan "Token Fog" deck! Lol Lingering Souls, Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad, Bitterblossom, Timely Reinforcements, Spectral Procession, Raise the Alarm, Intangible Virtue! Throw in 1-2 Glare of Subdual and lock your opponent OUT. Yes plz!

EmmetCooper Organising a deck by rarity is not a helpful way to look at it, the default of card type is much easier to read...
Moving on, Caves of Koilos or Isolated Chapel as they don't enter tapped and can produce both types of mana, meaning your not stalled for a turn. Gifted Aetherborn should replace Child of Night as it is functionally better. Your deck looks to be top heavy, by this I mean you have 15 spells at 4 cmc or greater. Generally you want most of the work to be done with 1, 2 and 3 cost cards then you have some "finisher" which close the game. Generally you also want consistency, that means you focus the deck more by running 4x of the core cards.
General cards to look at -
This isn't an exhaustive list, there are lots of other cards that cause your opponent to lose life and you to gain, or play to that tactic.
Hope that helps.

From a strategic Point of view I would not tackle infinite Combos with reactions AFTER they have arleady generated for example infinite life, but rather prevent them from going off in the first place. The question is: what does sorin markov achieve for 6 mana (and triple black in a 4c deck!) that you can't do with cheaper Cards, maybe even artifacts? What Kind of infinite lifegain Loops does he Counter that can't be broken with other Cards?
Most combos feature either a graveyard loop, which could be prevented by Grafdigger's Cage (tutorable with Trinket Mage) or Leyline of the Void, a triggered ability with infinite creatures entering the battlefield, which could be prevented with Torpor Orb or Humility; an activated ability, maybe an untap mechanism (for example Staff of Domination and Metalworker), which could be prevented by a Pithing Needle, Cursed Totem, Phyrexian Revoker, or Linvala, Keeper of Silence. All of these cards are much easier to cast in a 4 colour deck and they actively prevent such a combo from happening, you don't need to let it happen and then reduce the life total to 10 again.
As for the planeswalker choices:
I'd rather miss a planeswalker for 3 mana than playing Jace Beleren over JTMS, that's just not worth it. Sorin, Solemn Visitor is pretty bad in an almost creatureless deck, Sorin, Lord of Innistrad at least produces Tokens for the + ability...but that one isn't too good either. Nissa, Voice of Zendikar also doesn't do much except for producing blockers and the Ajani planeswalkers all need creatures to function well. I'd rather keep Dovin Baan because he doesn't need other cards to work.

I like your deck! It looks like you are wanting to run an Orzhov Midrange deck. If you wanted to kill them slowly over time, you would have to tailor things more towards control with even fewer creatures.
t I would recommend right now including a full pack of Tidehollow Sculler.
Some cards I think you are running that may not be that impactful: Emerge Unscathed, Blood Artist, Monastery Mentor, Despise, and Honor of the Pure. If you want to run an anthem and are relying more on your token than nontoken creatures, maybe use Intangible Virtue? Brimaz and Hero of Bladehold are already tough enough to stand on their own.
I would run less creatures overall, and more instants, sorceries and planeswalkers.
Finally, there may be games where you could benefit from a discard outlet (i.e., your discard cards are no longer useful). One such card that is popular in Orzhov for this purpose is running a set of Pack Rats.
Just my 2 cents! Great deck and +1!

Sorin, Solemn Visitor and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad are interesting additions, with no particular synergy but can pump your creatures, create more creatures and gain life through lifelink. they aren't that costly either (especially if you compare them to Liliana of the Veil)

My thoughts; Blood Artist, Asylum Visitor both have useful effect and are low casting cost vampires. Mana Tithe, Authority of the Consuls could be useful for stalling your opponent. Sorin, Lord of Innistrad is probably a better choice in this deck as it drops earlier and makes vamp tokens.
Your also missing the best thing about black; discard! Running 4 copies of Duress for example will help you get rid of enchantments and artifacts before they even hit the table...
