Stromkirk Noble is good in sideboard if you face a lot of decks with humans in your meta. If you splash white you can always run Legion Lieutenant. 2 drop lords are always good. If you ever go to 3 colors that is.

With Humans being one of the most popular Modern decks at the moment I'd consider Stromkirk Noble. You should also follow the basic rule; playing red, play Lightning Bolt. The issue I see with mono red vampires is that they don't have a lord, so you don't gain that much by sticking to the single creature type...

Rampaging Ferocidon; Ahn-Crop Crasher ; Pia Nalaar would be better top curve. Chandra Phenix is a little to cute and doesn't add that much utility or deep to the deck.I would also add more one drop, Bomat Courier (It's a bit expensive, but his price should drop when he rotate out of standard) Falkenrath Gorger; Village Messenger Flip and Stromkirk Noble would had a vampire theme wich would reward you if you manage to clear the board for an attack.And Falkenrath Exterminator would be a nice two drop who add some reach

Edgar decks need to be fast. Replace the tapped lands with lands that don't come into play tapped as far as possible. Play lots of small vampires, since Edgar will make them big anyway.
You could probably cut some of the more expensive creatures. Put in cheaper Vampires like Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Bloodcrazed Paladin, Malakir Cullblade, Yahenni, Undying Partisan, Indulgent Aristocrat, Stromkirk Noble, Vicious Conquistador, Pulse Tracker, Shadow Alley Denizen, Markov Blademaster to get multiple tokens. Inspiring Cleric doesn't have enough of an impact.
You could potentially replace Avacyn with Eldrazi Monument for the earlier indestructible and +1/+1.
Elbrus is too expensive and not very useful. You should also drop Angelic Destiny and Noble Purpose.

I like it! I'd recommend running 4 fetch lands and 2 shock lands in your deck's colors if you're playing modern, it really makes a difference with having the right colors and having more consistent draws. I think the ones you would want are Bloodstained Mire and Blood Crypt. I don't think you need Feast of Blood or Tragic Slip, I'd try Fatal Push instead.
I don't think Blood Artist, Rakish Heir, or Stromkirk Noble are very good cards. Maybe the latter as a sideboard against 5-Color Humans but thats it. Instead, I would run 2x more Bloodghast, 4x Insolent Neonate, and then a planeswalker or two to shake things up a bit. I think the best planeswalker set you could run in this deck would be 2x Liliana of the Veil but if you don't want to break the bank Liliana Vess is also good and if you want to stick with the theme Sorin Markov is pretty decent. Sorin's Vengeance could also be fun to run as a one-of late-game win condition.

I would honestly side out the hand disruption or lose the vials. You need more removal, especially in a meta as creature-heavy as Modern. You have Bolt, Push, Terminate and Path at your disposal. Vial is so good in tribal decks like humans/merfolk because they're almost all the same CMC, vamps aren't. As of late I feel the need to remind a lot of people currently building vamps that one, you're not merfolk and two, you're a black deck, capitalize on that. Unlike pretty much any other tribal in modern, vamps are actually great at killing permanents and removing threats.
Now as for your actual creatures, I think you'll find yourself running low on hand size a lot in some matchups, Asylum Visitor would help you out a lot. She's also a great beater. 16 lords is really, really slow and clunky. You need some one-drops. I know non-black cards feels counterproductive but Stromkirk Noble was aleady the best 1 cmc vamp, now that human tribal is top tier he's hilariously good. Vampire Lacerator is another good quick beater; you're already guaranteed losing to burn game 1 anyway, that matchup is just awful for vamps. Gatekeeper of Malakir is imo the best vampire in magic. Triple black mana is fine, you're a rakdos deck with a white splash honestly and black really is your dominant color. The manabase I've been using since Rivals dropped is 3 Swamp 2 Blood Crypt 1 Godless Shrine 4 Blackcleave Cliffs 8 fetches 1 Urborg 1 Mutavault 2 Cavern of Souls. This is a functional 3-color manabase for Mardu vamps yet all but 1 land makes black mana.
And if you wanted to add a few slow but very powerful bosses don't forget you have access to two powerhouses in Olivia Voldaren and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet. Like I said, 16 lords is too much. I'd lose Captivating to get some one drops for speed. Nighthawk is useful vs. Affinity and maybe Eldrazi, that's about it though.
I can tell you're either really new at siding or just haven't had time to put one together. I can help, or you can look up netdeck databases online. This comment's long enough as is, I'd have to get back to you on how to tackle common Modern threats, but siding is important.
