Ok, I'm back on request. The main thing that needs a little work is lowering your avg cmc and a bit more card draw is needed imo.

Suggested Cuts:

Anowan, Both Sorins, Eerie Interlude, Hour of Devastation, Commander's Sphere, Orzhov Cluestone, Diabolic Tutor, Blood Tracker, and Vanquishers Banner.

Adds: Cordial Vampire , Dark Prophecy , Orzhov Signet / Fellwar Stone (or Talismans), Diabolic Intent , Sorin, Solemn Visitor , Austere Command , Dusk Legion Zealot , Skullclamp , and Shared Animosity .

That'll take away 16 mana or about .23 off your avg. cmc (rough educated guess).

It depends on your opponents, in some games Rakish Heir performing very good. In other games it is more like a nearly useless card. I think about to change it for Thirsting Bloodlord , sure its one mana more but it buffs immediately and is a 4 Mana 5/5 (with Token), it synergies with Vampire Nocturnus .

I like Impact Tremors it drains by casting creatures very well because of "Eminence" and with a Bolas's Citadel you get the drain train started.

Sorin, Solemn Visitor is a game changer. You generate the table hate very fast because you play a aggro deck. Sorin can save your life points when you are low or can kill an opponent out of nowhere.

Falkenrath Noble is actually worse because it hits only one player per trigger and relies too much on your opponents to play many creatures. Stat-wise it might be better because of added evasion in form of flying but I'd actually stick to the ground with Vindictive Vampire dealing 3-4 damage and healing me for 1.

Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet is good but not here - it's place is in some more midrange decks rather than full on aggro. On the other hand Vampire Nocturnus has POTENTIAL to be amazing but... in 3-color deck it has too much % chance to whiff. I've actually counted and there are 41 black cards and it might not be enough to make it worth inclusion.

If I'd make it more similar to my Aggro/Aristocrats deck I'd swap:

  • Sorin, Solemn Visitor --> Vindictive Vampire - I see planeswalkers as sorcery spells because there's a very high chance that they'll be killed during the whole turn cycle. So this Sorin is for +1/+0 and lifelink OR 2/2 token... Is it worth 4 CMC? Unfortunately, I don't think so.
  • Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet --> Quag Vampires - low CMC aggro vampire that has potential to be unblockable with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and come with a few +1/+1 counters later in the game.
  • Adanto Vanguard --> Bloodthrone Vampire - white vampire for black one and I personally don't see this Vanguard as powerful, while with all those ping abilites on board we can easily machine gun opponents to death (or close enough to be taken down by buffed up vampire lady).
Also some ideas to consider: Springleaf Drum might be considered a ramp spell - tap token and this for a Birds of Paradise effect in non-green deck. For a more combo-oriented build or just pure value I'd maybe add Phyrexian Altar ? Besides combo with Oathsworn Vampire I've already told you about it can just enable Aristocrats effects or act as a ramp card, maybe for instant speed interaction?

Other than that I'm recently questioning the value of Stromkirk Noble since it's not card... What do you think about it?

Run Reconnaissance . This card allows you to attack with everyone safely (yes, even that 0/1, why not), untap each creature at the most opportune time for pseudo vigilance, and still deal combat damage in most situations.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (obvious face value of the card), it untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage is dealt (great for getting +1+1 counters from Drana, Liberator of Malakir to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain), and it even untaps after normal combat damage is dealt due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step). I'd replace Door of Destinies, it does nothing for your current board, cost a ton of mana in aggro, and requires gas to get it to do anything.

This combination of full tilt aggro with everyone available to block makes Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 really good here (note: 'until your next turn') and it more than offsets a few of my next suggestions.

As far as the decks inherent card draw weakness goes... get Skullclamp in here then consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , Twilight Prophet , and Necropotence . Protecting your board also prevents topdeck mode get Boros Charm in here.

Austere Command , Cover of Darkness , Oversold Cemetery , and Diabolic Intent are all worth considering also.

Anyways, feel free to check out my list for inspiration, it's one of the top rated Edgar lists on the entire site. There's also over 130 comments worth of feedback and suggestions to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Sorry if you have any of this in the list... I'm just copying and pasting a post I did elsewhere since I'm on break.

Shared Animosity also 100% deserves a spot here.

And whoops, Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Lord of Innistrad. His +1 is also really good with Reconnaissance (note 'until your next turn').
