Why only 1xsorin?
Sorin, Grim Nemesis or Sorin, Lord of Innistrad or Sorin, Solemn Visitor or Sorin, Vengeful Bloodlord if you wanted to splice in some White through either Duel Lands or Artifacts. Hell, a couple Lotus Field s would work even Unknown Shores could do the trick.
Also, I'd trade in Barren Moor Bojuka Bog Castle Locthwain Piranha Marsh for 4x Westvale Abbey Flip They'll never see that coming and it plays into the story of Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and since the Shadowspear is made from pieces of the Helvault you could add one of them.
Indulgent Aristocrat , Vampire of the Dire Moon , & Vampire Outcasts I would personally replace them with 3x Bloodthirsty Aerialist s but they can be replaced with Knight of the Ebon Legion , Dark Impostor , & Child of The Night for a much better effect.

Diabolic Intent over Diabolic Tutor. I'm thinking this might just be a typo?
Shared Animosity over Nocturnus. Nocturnus needs all 9 fetches (free 2nd chances to activate) to feasibly run him in 3 colors imo.
Reconnaissance over Mastermind's Acquisition. Assuming you get (or have) Diabolic Intent in here, you'll already have the 4 best tutors available to you. I can explain Recon if you aren't familiar with it but you can attack with EVERY creature safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.
Sorin, Solemn Visitor over Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord. His + is single target, his minus is just Lightning Helix with a sac, and his 'ult' wants big vamps which the deck runs sparingly. Sorin Solemn Visitor's +1 is your whole team and it's until your next turn (really good with Recon) and his - provides a flyer when absolutely necessary.
Feel free to check out my list for inspiration. It's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's 150ish comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

As you aren't getting full value. Sorin has a better version already in the main and Vraska needs to destroy permanents which you don't want in this deck. I would consider either Dromoka's Command for flexibility or maybe some different plainswalkers for really grindy matchups against control post sideboard. Tireless Tracker is a great option to play side or indeed main. And that sort of card can work with Vraska if you want her in, as the Tracker makes the permanents required for Vraska to tick up.
The other option I could see for mana reasons is to include a set of something similar to Adventurous Impulse . Digs for land if required or for creatures.
Final option would be Lyra Dawnbringer or similar - I've found sometimes having nothing in the air means you are playing behind the entire game and can't recover. Lifegain here is handy again.

Consider Sorin, Solemn Visitor for massive lifegain from his +1. It's until your next turn also so it's really good with Reconnaissance.

Sorin, Solemn Visitor 's +1 is until your next turn. That massive lifegain is needed to fuel card draw. It's also insanely good with Reconnaissance because you swung with a whole team of lifelinkers and that whole team is untapped, ready to block, and still has lifelink. Other Sorin only effects 1 target and wants fatty vamps to discount... which the deck runs sparingly.
I also just noticed you run Purphoros. Scapegoat can be an anti wrath tech or you can use it to bounce your board back to your hand to murder everyone with Purphoros. It dodges tuck, exile, sac, -X-X, and other hard to dodge wraths. I'd rather sac a token and eat a personal Evacuation than be in topdeck mode.
As far as cuts go...
Door of Destinies- Doesn't do anything for your current board and it essentially requires gas to do anything after.
Malakir Bloodwitch - Meh... pro white is the best part.
Night's Whisper - One time draw isn't worth a slot.
Painful Truths - You have 2x listed... drop both.
Legion's Landing - Only needed like 1 out of every 5 games.
Sorin - See above. Single targets for all abilities and underwhelming.
2 lands - You've got a really low avg. cmc. 33 should work great. Probably drop checklands.

Yeah for sure! I fully agree that Sorin is a solid card, but the only thing good about him in this build is the fact he pumps out 2/2s, which is okay, except you have so many token generators, I actually think he's too slow to fit in the build, especially when you have cards like Elspeth, Sun's Champion , who you will be casting fairly early in game. The only upside to some of the token generators is Sorin, Solemn Visitor pumps a 2/2 but that is'nt relevant at all in commander. His +1 isn't very relevant, as the lifelink can be good but I doubt it'll win you many games. His ult is fine, but I don't see it being very good if you aren't going to win by combat. However, there is some utility in it, but I would just add a Sheoldred, Whispering One because most players will kill sorin before he can ever get off his ult.
Don't take my suggestion as a "GET THAT S*** outta here!" rather what it is, a suggestion. I also appreciate you taking the time out of your day to consider my suggestions =}

Nice deck!!! I actually wont cut anything, except for Vampire Nighthawk and Sorin, Solemn Visitor but even that's far fetched. I would add maybe 2 more lands to improve your mana base, but that's about it If I don't have many suggestions that's because I've spent the last 3 hours trying to comment of decks with minimal likes/views. but otherwise fun and interactive deck =)
