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). Shared Animosity also 100% deserves a spot here.

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, consider Dark Prophecy , Greed , Necropotence , Herald's Horn , and Twilight Prophet . Drop your 1 time draw like Read the Bones. Protecting your board also prevents topdeck mode... run Boros Charm (and Teferi's Protection assuming you got the precon).

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 ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks is appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

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. Shared Animosity also 100% deserves a spot here.

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

Night's Whisper , Throne of the God-Pharaoh , and Guul Draz Assassin are my main suggestions for cuts.
