You might want to consider splashing blue for more draw and discard spells like Dimir Guildmage and Dire Undercurrents or even Drastic Revelation. Frantic Search might be a good one too. Those can all add to playing things from the graveyard as well as having stuff in your hand. I'd take out Stillmoon Cavalier and maybe sideboard Arrogant Bloodlord. Fists of the Demigod and Knight of Dusk fit well too. You could always add Terminate if you wanna be that guy.
Cool deck idea though, would love to play against it.

Stillmoon Cavalier is just an all around nice card to have Gravecrawler gives you a never ending chump blocker Grave Titan while not a zombie himself, makes you even more zombies whenever he swings Mikaeus, the Unhallowed gives you more buffs and undying Vengeful Pharaoh is a nice way to make your opponents second guess swinging at you, and finally Grave Betrayal turns your opponents creatures into zombies for you

Some card that might be worth considering:
Tidehollow Sculler because it is a modern staple.
Stillmoon Cavalier even thought it's pretty pricey, it dodges a lot of modern removal.
Embalmer's Tools makes graveyard abilities more amusing.
Necromancer's Covenant, because it gives you zombies, pumps up all your zombies, and hates on graveyard, or cashes in on all the creatures you haven't embalmed.
Corpse Connoisseur can get creatures for you to embalm/eternalize/unearth.
I don't know. I'm just brainstorming.

I've been playing my Haakon deck for only about 2~3 months now. Great fun. I noticed someone above recommended Stillmoon Cavaliers, & I would second this, if you find them for a good price. They fly, they block colonnades & d-shadows all day long, and they'll never get pushed or pathed.

You currently have no means of putting Haakon, Stromgald Scourge onto the field, as you have no means of pulling him out from the graveyard and he can't be played from your hand. Unless you include a means of doing so, consider dropping him. Similarly, Enduring Renewal is not helping you here at all. You have no means of reanimating, so you would be hurting yourself with its use.
Right now you have a lot of Knights that pretty much only have Protection from White, and don't provide much synergy at all. On top of that, they have a lot of and which may be difficult to pull of with your land base, especially during early game. Concealed Courtyard is a good land to have in here, and it's Modern-legal.
Everything above considered, here are some Knights that may work well in this deck. Blood-Cursed Knight could be useful here, considering how many enchantments you have in the deck. Fiendslayer Paladin is quite good. Lone Rider Flip would proc off of Lifelink rather easily. Stillmoon Cavalier is versatile and functions similarly to Stromgald Crusader.
I should mention that Sorin, Grim Nemesis's Ultimate ability creates the tokens you want.
You could also consider giving your other Knights Lifelink, via Enchantments like Gift of Orzhova or Whip of Erebos. This deck has little ways of generating 1/1 Vampire Knight other than Call the Bloodline and even with that you will have to dump a LOT of cards into your graveyard, which with this deck has no benefit whatsoever, just to get a sufficient amount of tokens (and I need not remind you that you have no means of using any of the cards you will have discarded). You may even be better off not working with tokens and instead focus on your creature base.
Hope this helps!

Thanks, its good to know its being used!
I've tested Dregscape Zombie alongside Rotting Rats to put gravecrawler onto empty boards, but its not a fantastic setup- too many slots to sideboard, too neiche to main board - you might get some more traction from sacrificing it but I'm not super confident. Stillmoon Cavalier/Haakon, Stromgald Scourge/Stromgald Crusader is similar, without red for new volderaden it turns out very weak to random token generation.
Honestly, I'd just throw a Whip of Erebos in there rather than mucking about. Probs simpler and more effective than the other stuff. The setup looks solid enough, you aren't accelerating into a massive Profane Command for grey merchant, so you could probsbly cut Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx for some random utility lands without losing too much (except that hardcast death's gate), Mystifying Maze perhaps. It looks pretty together here though, so let me know how it turns out!

Great job on this deck, it looks like a lot of fun to play! As far as suggestions go, I think you need the full playset of AEther Vial as it allows you to drop an extra creature most turns and without being countered, not to mention how well it combos with Haakon. I would also recommend replacing Stillmoon Cavalier and Knight of the Holy Nimbus with Knight of the White Orchid to help get that third land out with more consistency given all the three mana cost creatures. Finally, I would like to see Hero of Bladehold somewhere in here and maybe even Hero of Oxid Ridge in the sideboard for a creature token matchup instead of Worm Harvest which kind of seems out of place given the mainboard Lingering Souls. Overall I love this deck, it looks fun, effective, and super flavorful, +1!
