Sorin, Lord of Innistrad Discussion
4 weeks ago
I would recommend Anointed Procession to help speed up your token generation, and would maybe run one less Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and replace it with a Dictate of Heliod to give your tokens a better boost. I also don't recommend playing Sorin Markov in this format because he is too overcosted for effects that don't benefit your deck's strategy, and although halving your opponent's life can be nice, by the time you reach turn six, they should be relatively close to dead and it literally won't matter. I would also recommend either running another Path to Exile over a third Fatal Push so that your removal is a little more consistent. Finally, I'd say run another Lingering Souls over the third Cartel Aristocrat , just because the flyers give you more of an advantage than a 2/2 on the ground.

Props for not going easy mode with Edgar Markov .
As for suggestions, the best thing I think you could do to improve this deck is to make it more explosive. The way to do that would be to add free sacrifice outlets, along with creatures that provide you multiple bodies.
For sac outlets, Viscera Seer , Indulgent Aristocrat , Bloodthrone Vampire , Bloodflow Connoisseur , Cartel Aristocrat , Blood Bairn , Vish Kal, Blood Arbiter , Vampire Aristocrat , and Yahenni, Undying Partisan are good vampire options. Sadistic Hypnotist , Dimir House Guard , Spawning Pit , Hidden Stockpile , Mind Slash are also good. What's important is that you can go off all at once. You want to sac a bunch of creatures to grow Elenda and sac her the same turn.
The other challenge you'll want to keep in mind is that Elenda, the Dusk Rose must go to your graveyard to get the trigger. That means If you want to recast her, you'll have to reanimate her or exile her from your graveyard. Bojuka Bog , Relic of Progenitus , Angel of Finality , God-Pharaoh's Gift (and Gate to the Afterlife !), Skeletal Scrying , Rescue from the Underworld , Necromancer's Covenant , Cremate , Seance , Planar Void , Goryo's Vengeance , Postmortem Lunge , Purgatory . Despoiler of Souls , Mistmoon Griffin , Purify the Grave , Offalsnout , Coffin Purge , Drudge Spell , Cryptwailing , Treacherous Vampire , and Consecrate / Consume , Angelic Renewal , Karmic Guide , Reveillark (the prior two being an infinite loop combo), Dread Return , Nim Deathmantle (there are combos with it and Ashnod's Altar , which you also want), Palace Siege , Bloodline Necromancer , Profane Command , Unburial Rites , Faith's Reward , Ever After , Ajani, Adversary of Tyrants , Hell's Caretaker . Apprentice Necromancer , Wake the Dead , Second Sunrise , Infernal Offering , Corpse Dance , Zombify , Resurrection , No Rest for the Wicked , and Footsteps of the Goryo , are all good options.
The final piece of the puzzle is making your sacrifices devastating. Dictate of Erebos , Butcher of Malakir , Grave Pact , Black Market , Harvester of Souls , Midnight Reaper , Grim Haruspex , Zulaport Cutthroat , Open the Graves , Blade of the Bloodchief , Ogre Slumlord , Athreos, God of Passage , and Dark Prophecy will help with that.

Hey these are a few cards I thought might be a fit for this deck Revival / Revenge , Sorin, Lord of Innistrad , Vona, Butcher of Magan , Response / Resurgence , Rise of the Hobgoblins , Master Warcraft , Adriana, Captain of the Guard , Grenzo, Dungeon Warden , and Garna, the Bloodflame .

If you want to ramp up your ability to control the board cards like Meekstone do the trick
Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim is another sac option

Enchament - Saga
: Create 4 2/1 red Imp creatures with haste.
: Discard your hand and draw seven cards.
: Target opponent gains control of your next turn. Each opponent may destroy up to 3 permanents of their choice. Each opponent may put any number of permanents in their graveyard onto the battlefield under their control.
The first two abilities are aggressive and powerful, and reminiscent Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded's final and first ability, but the third combines two of Sorin's Ultimates, Sorin Markov and Sorin, Lord of Innistrad.

Geralf_Cecani, already made the case for adding blue or green, I'm going to make a case for black or staying in mono white.
First off black actually has a straight up fog Darkness, splashing black also lets you use Batwing Brume to its full extent and the obvious Lingering Souls. Plansewalker wise you would have access to Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, both are pretty reasonable and more budget friendly than most. Note too that a new BE planeswalker is due for release with the next set.
This idea isn't really mine, I got it from foxinsox's deck Competitive Solemnity in Selesnya. This deck uses Solemnity and Phyrexian Unlife to create a board state where you can't die. This is likely to work simply because enchantments are much harder to remove than other permanents. This is again a great way to stall out the board and frustrate your opponent. In the same vein so might Gideon of the Trials and white is the colour of tax cards like Rule of Law and Ghostly Prison...
Lastly, your card draw choices remind me of Owl-ing Mine, this deck uses Ebony Owl Netsuke to deal it's damage and cards like Boomerang and Remand to stall your opponents board. Again this isn't strictly my idea, as I got it from DaFerra's deck Owl-ing Mine.
Hope this was of help and give you some ideas...

i like the idea. the deck dose 2 things really well, drains life and keeps your opponents on the back foot.
the other thing i need to be good at but is currently stuggerling with is evasion, as without solid evasion, tempo style control your going to struggle to utilise the ninjas to there best.
some suggestions, a mix of vampire lords, general lord effects, some ninja staples
Reveillark Baleful Strix Stormscape Familiar Whispersilk Cloak Thief of Sanity Vampire Cutthroat Twilight Prophet Bident of Thassa Thassa, God of the Sea Patron of the Vein Yahenni, Undying Partisan Anowon, the Ruin Sage Captivating Vampire Blade of the Bloodchief Lazav, the Multifarious Drana, Liberator of Malakir Dictate of Heliod Sanctum Seeker Door of Destinies Whip of Erebos Always Watching Radiant Destiny
and not to forget the vampire planeswalker that makes flying vampires ;)
there are of course lots of addinal more fantastic cards that would work well with this theme but these are some of the better budget options

if you can find room 1-2 Vault of the Archangel can be a fun land to use.
I would also recommend trying out Sorin, Lord of Innistrad if in your budget to see if you like them
