Hey DarrockHawk, good start to this deck!

If you want to play this deck in modern, you'll have to cut the Swords to Plowshares since that card isn't modern legal. You're also running a much higher amount of removal than normal for an aggressive creature deck like this - hell, most control decks don't even run this much removal! Right now you're running 14 removal spells - a good spot of an aggresive creature deck is 6-8. I would go down to 4x Path to Exile, 2x Go for the Throat, and 1-2 Anguished Unmaking. The Extirpates are also an interesting choice - do you usually/always play against graveyard combo decks? If not, I'd move those to the sideboard (if you're going to play them at all).

As for what to add, Vicious Conquistador , Kalastria Highborn , Bloodghast , Gatekeeper of Malakir , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Mavren Fein, Dusk Apostle , and Captivating Vampire are some powerful vampire cards that you're missing. If you wanted to throw red into the deck, it opens up Stromkirk Captain , Olivia, Mobilized for War , and Olivia Voldaren as well as things like Lightning Bolt , Terminate , and Bedevil .

I can give more specific suggestions if you're interested, but in the meantime I think you should play around with it to see what you like! Whatever you decide to do, have fun with it!

Dark Prophecy over Read the Bones. Your draw power needs some work... Necropotence , Herald's Horn , and Greed will help keep you out of topdeck mode.

Austere Command over Fumigate

Reconnaissance over either Coat of Arms . Coat is rather ballsy and it sucks to lose to your own card. Reconnaissance allows you to attack with EVERY creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block by the end of combat.

Untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain / Stensia Masquerade ), 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).

If you're picking up what I'm putting down I can continue. In the meantime, feel free to check out my list for inspiration. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

I have a few suggestions to help with your 'too aggressive' problem.

First, consider Reconnaissance . It allows you to attack with EVERY creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and have every one of your creatures untapped and ready to block and deter attackers.

It untaps to avoid bad blockers (only situation you don't deal combat damage), it untaps after first strike but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain / Stensia Masquerade ), 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).

The other two things that will help are lots of repeatable card draw and a few anti-wrath measures.

Boros Charm and Scapegoat are your best anti-wrath cards. I run both in addition to Teferi's Protection.

Necropotence , Dark Prophecy , Herald's Horn , Twilight Prophet , Champion of Dusk , and Greed . I literally run all this in addition to Skullclamp. Drop Reprocess though... sorcery speed.

Also consider Shared Animosity and upping your creature count to at least 30.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. It's one of the top rated Edgar lists on this site and there's also over 140 comments to sift through for more ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Edgar's Dega Vampires

Run Reconnaissance . It allows you to attack with every creature you have safely, deal combat damage in most situations, and then have every one of those creatures untapped and ready to block.

It untaps to avoid bad blockers (obvious face value of the card), it untaps after first strike damage but before normal combat damage (handy for getting counters from Drana to your whole team and busted with Stromkirk Captain / Stensia Masquerade , and it even untaps after normal combat damage due to the creature being an 'attacking' creature until the end of combat step ends (you untap in the middle of this step))

It could definitely be adapted but missing Stromkirk Captain is rough. Maybe Vicious Conquistador in place of Stromkirk Noble and Furyblade Vampire in place of Bloodghast . What time replace the Captain with however.

Honestly, I think the biggest cut candidates are the red cards and the ones that are supported by them. I think Cordial Vampire just puts in so much work that it might just be better than Gifted Aetherborn , given some supporting changes are made. I'm thinking Legion Lieutenant for Stromkirk Captain , with some other removal spell going in for Terminate . I think for 3 mana, Sorin, Imperious Bloodlord puts in a lot more work than Gatekeeper of Malakir as a turn 3 play, because he is just about the best way to stick Nocturnus or Kalitas this early in BW. White has been known to be a great color to board with, so I think these color changes could seriously impact your game 2/3 win percentage as well.
